THE VENEZUELAN QUESTION. The war being made by Germany, England, Spain and Italy upon Vene zuela is causing some uneasiness among government officials and others in this country. Some are apprehensive that the allied powers cherish ulterior de signs against the Monroe Doctrine. A few like Henry Watterson hysterically declare that the time has come for abandonment or modification of that doctrine. Some, as Judge Richard. Al vey, of the Court of Appeals of the District of Columbia, express the opin ion that Secretary of State Hay, in ac quiescing in the employ of force by En gland and Germany to compel the Vene zuelan government to make good the claims of their citizens against that country, has already to a considerable degree surrendered the principle of the doctrine Feferred to. Judge Alvey is one of the most able jurists in the United States and his opinls are-entitled to respect, but in this case we think that he is in error. It is not so very long since Americans weeboasting of the right of this gov ernment to use force to compel the Sul tan of Turkey to liquidate claims of American cidzens against that country. It would seem to be a reasonable prop osition that when one country refuses to comply With its obligations to another, force may properly be used to compel such compliance. The gist of the Mon roe Doctrine is that the United States will; not permit any European power to acquire more territory than it now pos sesaes on the Western Hemisphere. If England or Germany, or either of them should attempt to appropriate any por tion of the Venezuelan territory, how ever small, that would be a violation of the Munroe Doctrine and this country would be bound to interfere to prevent it and thus the United States would be forced into war. But there is no danger of war and no reason for the abandonment of the Mozme Doctrine.. The existence of the MogaegDoetie is the guarantee ag i war. The: European powers kndrT that the people of the United S is, wlthout regard to party lines or political faith have only one k this question, and will stand'by the Monroe Doctrine at all hazards, for the preservation of the workl's peace. No European nation except Germany has any need of ae quirig new territory. England has her problems in SouthAfrica and a great territory for the overflow of her''popu lation in her Indian possessions. If Germany persists .inher dogin-the manger policy with retrence to the proposed arbitratiop, it' would be - a very easy thing for-th United States to guarantee t4laiRof England, thus eliminating tI$St eduntry from the qn- .n -leaving Germiany to at tempt the~ -.overthrow of the Mon rpe Doctrieif she can. It isto bere membered in this connection that there are such nations as Russia and France, that .Giaymust. take into considera tion. is. and France always has been of the United States. Their toward Germany is well know44 there will be no war, and the '~Doctrine will stand.

Birge Wise met with a serious acient aM Prosperity Saturday nir'-t. S Therie was a false alarm of fire an se was running along the street. towards the scene when his head struck a tree on.the side of the walk. He was knocked unconscious and remained so until next morning. He will likely be confined to his bed for several weeks. There will be a Christmas service at the, Lutheran Church of the Redeemer on Christmas morning at eleven o'clock. The subject of the sermon by the pas tor will be "A Chime of Christmas Bells." The public is cordially invited to be present. ______ Arm Cut Off. George Kinard, a negro working in the seed room at the Oil Mill, met with a serious accident Saturday evening, as a result of which his arm is cut off above the elbow. He was attempting to put a belt on a running pulley when in some way his hand slipped and was caught in the shafting, and torn off completely. Kinard walked from the seed room into the offlee to notify those in the office of the accident, and upon his return his hand was still revolving on the shafting. It was necessary in order to save the arm that it be amputated above the elbow, and this was done by Drs. Gilder and Mayer. An Explanation. Mr. Editor: I am not in the habit of correcting every little thing that goes wrong, but Iwant to say to my dear old friend Sigma that the sentence which appeared in my letter of last Tuesday, "If something don't soon turn up we are going to tell on an old hum bug," was intended for a separate paragraph. But it gos. +hrown in with the little paragraph, which was all in good humor, in reference to Sigma. We hope this explanation is satisfac tory to Sigma, and that we may soon be able to tell in full the story about which we have been joking him. -T. J.W. VARIOUS AND ALL ABOUT. Prof. B. M.

Facts subsequently coming to light convinced several persons living in the neighborhood that the shooting was not accidental, and a warrant was sworn out and Gilliam was lodged in jail on Friday.
