Minneapolis business men turned out
in large numbers yesterday morning to
attend the meeting at the Commercial
club held for the purpose of providing
a Christmas dinner for the poor of the
city. The meeting was organized with
the selection of William Regan as
chairman and E. A. Fay as secretary.
W. H. Eustis spoke briefly, outlining
the plan followed last year in the mat- |
ter of distribution. Suggestions were
made by Mrs. T. B. Walker, Mrs. Rob-
crt Pratt, Superintendent Jordan, Mr. ,
Regan. W. 11. Rendell and many oth- '
ers. •
It was decided, as a result of this i
informal talk, that the committee on '
solicitation should be divided into the j
various lines cf business to receive" '
cash and donations and to report at the
I earliest opportunity. "■. |
The several committees were then '
made up. j
Prof. Jordan reported that he had
sent circulars to each school In the I
city, telling the children that they :
might bring what they wanted to for
charitable purposes today. It Is ex- I
pec ted that these will be productive of :
many contributions and it was arrang- |
ed that wagons should call Saturday
and gather up these articles, taking
them to the headquarters, 27 Second j
street south. j
Manager E. A. Fay said last night •
' that as chairman of the committee on j
applications he had sent a circular let-
ter asking for the name and addresses, :
together with the size of the family, of !
the various pastors and heads of char- j
itable organizations throughout the I
city. Everyone having any knowledge I
of poor families in need of contribu- |
tions is asked to send in the address '
and name to E. A. Fay, associated '•
charities, at once. The names of those j
receiving aid from the city or the '
associated charities are not required, j
but all others not on the public lists
are necessary to make the distribution
complete. The Christmas supplies will |
be delivered unostentatiously and there
will be no danger of parading their
poverty before the public. Names I
should be sent at once to E. A. Fay, 601 |

Lively Affrr.y in Which Only One !
Man Was -.Wounded.
A shooting affray in which fully a '
dozen rounds were fired arid which j
caused much excitement," occurred at I
the rooms of the Grand Palace Social i
club yesterday afternoon.
The only serious result of the entire |
affair, was that a young colored man I
named George Mortimer was hot in tihe ]
thigh. Mortimer was an inaiocrnt spec- |
tator. He was removed by the police i
to Dr. S. S. Kilving ton's office, where '
the wound was dressed and pronounced j
not at all dangerous. The injured man
was then removed to his rooms at 24G
Second street. S. Mortimer is a Pull-
man car porter on the Milwaukee.
The only wonder of the police is that
some one was not killed In the melee,
as there was a crowd of nearly a
dozen p'ople in the room where the
shooting occurred. Bad blood has ex-
isted between Guy Young and John
Robb for some time, which wound up
yesterday afternoon in both men mak-
ing a wild endeavor to shoot each
other. The police were called, but,
after Investigating, made no arrests.
Neither Robb nor Young desired any
prosecutions, and it was not. known
which of the two shot Mortimer, as the
bullets flew so thick. The "social club" !
will, however, probably receive police
attention In the near future which it
will not relish.

five men concealed in the rear room of
Lovett's office on the afternoon of
Oct. 19. during the conversation be-
tween Witness Paul Smith and Attor
ney Robert Kollner. Sutton took
shorthand notes of the conversation.

ready given their account of the con-
versation, and they were to be corrob-

Quite a legal battle ensued over the
admission of this evidence." His 'evi

Strong Speeches, Emphasizing
the Importance of Upholding
the Monroe Doctrine.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 19.— The spir-
it of Americanism still brooded over
j the senate today, but although cv-
I cry senator who spoke upon the sub-
ject indorsed the position of the presi-
dent, they expressed the opinion that
war would not result. Still the gray-
ity of the situaition was not under-
estimated. The "war talk" of the
last few days attracted to the gal-
leries large crowds, who followed
i the debate with intense interest. The
I immediate question before the senate
was the house bill . appropriating
$100,000 to defray the expenses of the
commission recommended by the
president. There was some differ-
ence of opinion as to what disposi
tion should be made of it, the gen-
eral opinion being that it should go
to the committee on foreign rela
tions. The debate, however, had no
practical result, as Mr. Allen, of Ne
braska, a Populist, objected to the
second reading of the bill. The Vene
zuelan discussion ended, Mr. Cockrell
presented, with a favorable' report,
the house resolution for a holiday
i recess beginning tomorrow, but Mr.
J Chandler (Rep., N. H.) asked that it
| lie on the table. Mr. Allen (Pop.,
| Neb.) caused a broad smile to go
| around the chamber when he asked
for the immediate consideration of a
lengthy resolution, reciting that, in
view of the possible contingency of
war with Great Britain as a result
of the conflict over the Venezuelan
boundary dispute, and that the first
essehtual in time of»war was money,
; that the committee on finance be in
-1 structed to inquire into the advisabil
ity of opening the mints to free coin-
age of silver. After some good-nat-
ured sparring Mr. Gorman (Dem.,
Md.) objected to its consideration.
The president's message transmit-
ting the Armenian correspondence
was laid bef ore, the senate.
As soon as. the senate journal had
been read and approved the clerk of
the house announced- the passage by
the house of the bill appropriating
$100,000 for the expenses of the com-
mission to investigate the boundary
between British Guiana and Vene
zuela, which was recommended by
| the president, and the vice president
i immediately laid it before the senate.
Senator Sherman (Rep., O.) moved its j
reference to the committee on foreign !
relations, but in the absence of Sen-
ator Morgan, chairman of the foreign
relations committee, Mr. Cockrell
(Dem., Mo.) requested Mr. Sherman
to withdraw his motion until the ar-
rival of the senator from Alabama.
This was done.
Some routine matters, including
the receipt of the house holiday re-
cess adjournment and the Armenian
correspondence, occupied the senate
before Mr. Morgan entered the cham
ber. Several of the Republican sen-
ators at once held a hurried consulta
tion with him. When the house
Venezuela bill was again laid before
the senate, Mr. Morgan immediately
moved to refer it to the committee on
foreign relations, and took the floor
in support of his motion. The sen
| ate was all attention and the galle
| rigs listened eagerly.
Mr. Morgan spoke carefully: The
senate should not be hasty,. he said.
The bill should be, in his opinion,
deliberated upon as long as neces
sary to secure an absolutely correct
judgment, and ■he concurred with
Senator Sherman in the belief that it
• should first have its consideration
in the committee. But— and here he
paused— he wanted it distinctly unr
derstood that he would oppose such
a reference unless it was made with
the. distinct understanding that con-
gress should not take the holiday re-
cess until it was reported back. While
the senate should hasten slowly and
with all possible speed, delay, -he
said, would perhaps lead to the for-
mation of an incorrect opinion here,
in Venezuela and in Great Britain.
It was of the highest importance that
the opinion of this country should
not be misunderstood. The real pur-
pose of the deliberate consideration
of the bill, by the committee on for-
eign relations, was to give that com-
mittee an opportunity to decide
whether it was wise now for congress
to extend the bill so as to include
a definite expression of our policy,'
or to leave that matter to the full
and unembarrassed action of the '
president. . In the exercise of his con-
stitutional power he could form and
shape that policy in whatever man-
ncr he chose.
: : Here Mr. Morgan drew a striking
illustration of what he meant. In
the Hawaiian affair, Mr. Cleveland,
I in the exercise of his power, had sent
to Hawaii a commissioner to obtain
; certain information. He took that
action without the advice and con-
sent of the senate, and when Mr.
Blount's report was made the debate
upon it was largely devoted to the
question of the president's powers,
purposes, etc. In other words, if
Mr. Blount had been appointed in
virtue of an act of congress, con-
gress and not the executive, would
have been responsible, and there
could have been no possible issue be-
tween the legislative and executive
branches of the government. The
question now presented, therefore,
I was whether congress should at this
I time blaze the policy of the United
; States, or leave it in the president's
hands as still in the field of diplo
macy. He did not want it under-
stood, however, that a difference of
feeling existed between congress and
the executive. It was only a ques
tion of method, not of principle, now.
So far as the Monroe doctrine was
concerned, that had been definitely
settled by the action of the presi-
dent. Mr. Cleveland's message, and .
more particularly Mr. Olney's note j
to the British prime minister, placed !
the Monroe doctrine in a clear, sub- I
stantial and unequivocal light before]
the World, and any action congress.!,
took In affirming it, whether by the
passing of the house bill, | amended
cm* unamended, could not be mistak-
en. Mr. Morgan congratulated the
country that this consummation had
been reached. He said he was In-
capable of expressing the gratitude
he] felt over his clear-cut and defi
nite enunciation of an American doc-
trine, founded in love and rever
ence for American Ideas of govern-
n^dnt^ and rooted and grounded ■ in
the Spirit of our institutions. It was
a conclusion comporting with the
dignity of the United States as a
gbyertiment and the prestige of our
people as a nation. At last a great
American doetrlne fixed absolutely
the attitude of the United States
and warned the world that it would
be (maintained and enforced.
-: 'Continuing, after reading extracts
from*: Secretary Olney's dispatches,
Mr. Morgan said the secretary's con-
elusions were in harmony with his
own ideas. There is, he said, an
'American doctrine, such as the sec-
retary of state formulates, and one
which, when it becomes applicable
in a material way to a country of the
Western hemisphere, it behooves us
to ' support. We shall . certainly
stand committed to the maintenance
of this doctrine after the adoption
of this resolution. According to the
president's views, it only remains for
congress to appropriate the money
necessary to enable him to continue
his inquiry, but Mr. Morgan thought
there might possibly be objection to
proceeding through the instru-
mentality of a commission, and an-
nounced his preference for an inde-
pendent investigation by the presi-
dent himself, as contemplated. Evi
dently it was the president's desire
to secure the support of such a com- ;
mission for whatever conclusions he
might have himself formed; but sup-
pose it should transpire that the
commission would develop differ-
ences of opinion among themselves,
or that their conclusions should not ,
be .in _ harmony with those of the '■
president? We might find ourselves.
seriously embarrassed by the find-
ing of such a body, and it might be
such as would be calculated to up-
root the Monroe doctrine or indef
initely delay the proper promulga
"I should prefer," he said, "to
leave, the matter in the hands of
the president, who has shown no dis-
position to shirk his responsibility so
far. His attitude has been courag
eous, firm and decisive." He, for
one, was willing, after decorous in-
vestigation, to adopt the president's
suggestion and pass the resolution.
Nevertheless, as there were ' those '
who desired to suggest amendments,
he -thought the measure should be
referred and acted upon by commit-
tee, but, with the reference made, he
would be of the number who would
enter a protest against any adjourn-
ment for the holidays until the ques
tion should be disposed of. ;"; ' '
Mr. Sherman followed Senator
Morgan, saying that he heartily ap
plauded what had been said by the
latter. The Monroe doctrine he con-
sidered of the highest importance to
the civilized world, but the impor
tance of the question only empha-
sized the necessity for deliberation
in its consideration. He thought
the resolution should be amended,
and : that it should go to the com-
mittee for this purpose.
"There is no hurry," he said. "The
controversy will not be settled in a
day or a month, and I do not believe
that a war between Great Britain and
the United States will form a feature.
of the settlement. I do not contem-
plate, or wish to contemplate, a hostile
result. I have seen enough of war to
dread its consequences, and I believe
that Great Britain will soon realize
that she has too much at stake. to in-
vite a hostile encounter with this coun-
try." y
But while he held this view, he believ-
ed the president to be right in taking
the position that the United States, as
the strongest nation on this hemis
phere, should not .permit weaker na
tions on this side of the Atlantic to be
trampled upon by European powers.-
This it was proper to say. Nor did he
believe that the English people would
support their officials in refusing to
submit the question to arbitration. The
: Monroe doctrine, he said, was of Eng
lish as well as of' American origin;. as
a matter of fact it had been more the
doctrine of Mr. Canning : than Mr..
Monroe. • y "". • ' ";:
. Mr.;. Sherman concluded with* an ap- '
peal for proceeding in an orderly man-
ner. . .;: • ' . - ' : ■•■'■
. ."Let,' us," said he, "show no' haste
and. no anxiety, but simply pursue the.
path of duty as laid out before us." rs
Mr. Lodge (Rep., Mass.), followed
Sherman in a vigorous speech. He so*-l
he was not in haste, but he thought
that the time for the commission to re-
port should be limited, and gave no
tice of an amendement providing that
the commission should report by April
1. He did not thing that the Monroe
doctrine could be upheld as a proposi
tion of international law, but he be
lieved that it should be supported as
we supported the Declaration of Inde
pendence — it was our doctrine.
When Mr. Lodge concluded Mr. Voor-
hees (Dem., Ind.), took the floor. '. He
said he saw no reason why action
should not be taken on the bill now.
There was, he declared, no reason for
further Investigation. He was not con-
templating war, but what was right.
We all, he said, have faith in the Mon-
roe doctrine, but If any man's faith has
been 'shaken he Invited him to read
Secretary Olney's dispatch and be re-
assured by that document, which was
the j equal of any state paper which
ever 'emanated from the department
over; which Mr. Olney presides. . Mr.
Voorhees said that he was not In haste
fn this matter, and called attention to
trie deliberate proceedings of the Brit-
ish authorities on the question. As a
preliminary he was willing that the
Imputed territory should be investi-
gated, but the senator from Ohio (Sher-
man) was more magnanimous toward
Great Britain than he (Voorhees). Mr.
Sherman thought that a great govern-
ment like Great Britain would not set
up a claim unless it was just. Every
parallel of latitude and longitude on
the maps of the world, said Mr. Voor-
hees vehemently, negated that state-
ment. They showed everywhere Great
Britain's insatiable maw. The very map
of the disputed territory now under
discussion, which Mr. Sherman had dis
played, demonstrated the truth of what
he maintained. It showed that Great
Britain had gradually pushed forward
her boundary until the territory had
grown from 70,000 to 100,000 square
miles. By silent encroachment, Great
Britain had laid claim j to territory
larger than the slate represented, by the
senator (Mr. Sherman). '_
Mr. Voorhees scouted the idea that
there might be war. There is no fear
of war, said he. He had a Christian
horror of war, as others had. But he
pointed .to; Canada as a hostage we
held from Great Britain as a guarantee.
of peace. With Canada at our mercy,.
Great Britain would not dare. to fight.
With Great Britain's commerce on the
high sea there would be no war. He

adverted to the war of 1812 as conclu
sive evidence that England would not
again jeopardize her commerce.
No, said Mr. Voorhees; there would
be an adjustment, but It should be
known and understood on both sides
of the ocean that the colonizing
schemes of Great Britain have reached.
their limit on this continent. If Eng-
land can take the territory of Venezue-
la she can take the Mexican state of
Chihuahua and push her cannons
across our borders. We were not ask-
ing what was unjust. We had simply
asked Great Britain to submit a dis
pute to impartial arbitration.
' Great Britain had taken six month to
reject that wise proposal, said Mr.
Voorhees in conclusion, now let us go
forward as a justification of our posi
tion and examine the controversy. Let
Great Britain have what belongs to
her, and not an Inch more. ZX'A'':
Mr. Allen (Pop., Neb.) objected to a
second reading of the bill, which would
carry it over until tomorrow. In a
short speech he said he did not expect
there would be any war. He thought
the amendment proposed by Mr. Lodge
meant that there would be more of a
political war than anything else.'
Mr. Hawley (Rep., Conn.) said It.
was not so much a case of war as in-
formation. No one knew what were
the facts. Great Britain herself did
not know. He wanted the bill referred
because it was the dignified and proper
way. Amendments could then be con-
sidered. *-■ J . y ;'
Mr. Chandler then sent to the desk
and had read a petition dated Feb. 19,
1895, to the president and congress of
the United States, signed by several
hundred members of the British house
of commons, praying that the United
States would enter into a treaty for
the arbitration of all International
questions. Mr. Chandler made no com-
ment on the petition.
Mr. Teller (Rep., Col.) followed with
a vigorous speech, in which he took
the ground that, although it was in
the power of the executive to obtain
the information he desired without the
aid* of congress, having asked congress
to sanction his course it was the duty
of congress to give it. He heartily ap-
proved of the message, but he had ex-
pected it. He had never believed that
the government could reach a point of
decadence where it would turn its back
on a doctrine of seventy years stand-
ing. This traditional policy should not
be called the Monroe doctrine. It was
founded on the right of self-defense.
European countries pursued it, ap-
plying it to the equipoise of European
states as we did to those on the Ameri-
can continent. We simply maintain-
ed that no country should be allow-
ed to arrogate to itself power enough
to threaten us. We must maintain the
independence of South American re-
publics from European control, to en-
sure our own safety in the future.
Recurring to the bill before the sen-
ate, he said there was no necessity
for haste. He cared not if it remained
in the committee a month, and would
not misinterpret . the delay. England
had had this American, doctrine dinned
into her ears by each succeeding sec-
retary of state. He reviewed the in-
vasion of Mexico, Mr. Seward's reci
tation of the Monroe doctrine, and the
disclaimer of the European t powers
that there was intention of dismember-
ing Mexico. V
He did not believe this controversy
would eventuate in war. If there was
war, however, it would not only be the
greatest war of modern times, but of
all history, because it would be a uni
versal war. Should we go to war, he
said, we would not be without allies
abroad. He sketched the conflicting
Interests of the European powers. They
would not stand Idly by and see Eng-
land create a domination over Amer
ica. They were all guided by self-in
terest. It was to the interest of some
to see the prestige of England destroy-
ed •on land and sea. Russia was
crowding down toward India; she had
extensive schemes in the Orient. This
was a trifling matter, comparatively
speaking; yet if necessary he would
give his voice for war rather than see
our country dishonored. He was. in
favor of giving the president every aid
comporting with the dignity of the
. United States, without reference to the
• This concluded the debate for today.
Mr. Morgan again asked Mr. Allen if
he- would withdraw his objection, but
Mr. Allen declined to yield.' Accord-
ingly the bill remained on the table.
