Mil has tho ripht of way and no one that
knows thnro art, a number of senators
who hnve not spoken on this subject nnd
who intend to Ppeak at length will hope
for nnjr notion on the Monroe doctrino
this week tiniest n unanimity should
tlevi lop or tlie question as presented by
tho Davis restilntion that !oes not np-pi-r
to exist at this writing. Tho minor
ity nanlnst tho radical claii of tlio Eavis
resolution 1m r.ot lurge, but it exists in
Watching That Flying Sf.ia.lron.
Tho friend -t of the resolution ns it
stands claim that the declaration onco
formally adopted by congnv will settlo
forever the question of foreign aggression
on tho Amcrirsn continent. Tho reports
concerning tho ISritlsh flying squadron
stirred up tho friend of tho resolution,
nnd tin y derided that if the report that
It is bonnd for lknutida waj confirmed
efforts should hn tnnda to call np tho rvs
lutlon mil pruts It through tho sennto r.s
soon as possible, even to the displacement
; of tho silver bill, tine argument 'used by
r thostt who advocate tho elnae that makes
tho I'niteU State the only sovereign state
on tlio two continent I that It will pre
vent any t fnrto government which may
ttt In Miwer In soma South American
country for a short time from bartering
uwiiy a portion of their territory.
Minority Afraid of KBtanjclrmeata.
This argument get strength from tho
fact that thr governments ot Sonth Amer
ican republics nro nearly always de facto
no onu knows how long they will lat
or how soon they will bo overthrown by
revolution. There U no doubt, however,
that the resolution will bo debated at
length whenever brought before the sen
ate, as It is understood that considerable
opt wit Ion will bo manifested to It, nnd
ropeciallv to that, part which make tho
I lilted States the judge of the validity of
any arbitration or agreement. It is oh
serted by tho opponent of tho resolution
that sui h n deelanttion I bound to lead to
Hope for a Klplnmatle Settlement.
Tho statement from London that the
Ttritlsh flying squadron was not Intcndod
for American waters waa received with
visible relief In naval circles, bnt in the
state deportment It was evident that it
had been anticipated, and It is surmised
that Ambassador liaynrd had already
c.immunlcntcd directly with the depart
ment nnd given satifnctorr fissrirsnces as
to tho Intentions of the llritish govern
ment. Tho impression Is Mraugthcned
that tho Venezuelan matter I soon to bo

If SUo Is Slinrt n National Conventions
She Is Long on Candidates.
Cincinnati, Jan. 20. Sinco this city
did not get tho Democratic national con
vention there Is now a movement to get
the nomination. It is argued that no ef
fort was made to secure tho Republican
national convention, as Ohio had a candi
date in MeKinley, nnd if the Democratic
convention had been held here no local
candidate could have been consistently
presented The Cincinnati delegation
that went to "Washington last week to
present tho claims of this city to tho na
tional Democratic committee was headed
by Melvillo F. Ingalls, president of tho
15ig Four system, tho Chesapeako and
Ohio nnd other railways.
lio is tho man that n combination of
business men nnd politicians is consid
ering as a candidate who would command
tho conlidence of business interests in
these stringent times. Tho failure of
James K. Campbell again to become gov
ernor and of Calvin S. Iirhw to be re
turned as senator nt the last election is
cited ns clearing t!;i way for the Ingalls
men to got a solid Ohio delegation and
then the support of other states.
