Two sets radically diU'en-nt resolutions aliout tho Monroe doctrine, hntli from Ueiiublieuu sources and both attacking Cleveland's position, have ! been introduced. One from Sewell nf I .New .lcsrey interprets the doctrine as meaning nothing except where tho United States are directly endangered, 'and condemns the president for pre matura action in the boundary dispute, and declares that neither congress nor the coimlrv could bo committed by it. The other by Davis of Minnesota, reported by the Foreign A Hairs commit too Monday, overrides thn president's limitation of tho doctrine to eases of "forcible" seizure or extension of territory and maintains that tho at tempt of any Kuropean power to take or acquire any new or ammonal torn- torv on mo American conuneuis, ni nny island adjacent thereto, or control of 'the easement in any canal pr any other means of transit across the American Isthmus, by or through force, purchase, cession, occupation, pledge, colonization or protectorate, whether tinder nufoundid pretension of right in cases of alleged boundary dipsutes, or under any other unfound ed pretension, is not to bo permitted. It is a blunt repudiation of Mr. Cleve land's assertion that "any adjustment of the boundary which Venezuela may deem for her advantage, and may outer into for her own free will, cannot of courso lie objected to by tho United States.'" Hut still after all this sound and fury, it makes itself ridiculous by limiting its applicability to "any case or instance as to which tho United States shull doom such attempt to be dangerous to its peace or safety.'' Tho clause about "canal casements" is most significant, for it is obviously applicable to tho effort which is being made by English capitalists in Nicara gua to have revoked tho charter of the Amereiun company for the Xiearaguan canal, with a view to the formation of a now English company. It was supposd when tho Davis res olutions were reported, that they would go through with a rush, hut unexpect ed opposition develops. Senator Gray dissented from thorost of the commit too and no less than 10 Republicans and 23 Democrats are now counted against it. They quickly defeated tho pian of the jingoes to have it debated in secret session only, so it begins to be doubt ful if the resolutions can go through tho senate, anil if they do tliey aro certain to bo defeated in tho House, where a majoriy of tho Foreign Affairs committee aro known to bo against them. Cleveland expresses himself vigorously to tho effect that they go too far. Tho chief speech of tho de bate' thus far is (hat of Sewell Monday who argued that Cleveland's position was far in advance of what was con templated in tho Monroo doctrine and that tho effect of it would bo the es tablishment of a protectorate over Mexico aud over each of the South and Central American states which would be hasty, reckless, violent.if they found that they were to lip protected by tho United States, and this country would find itself thereby involved in inter minable trouble. Senator Wolcutt made an elaborate speech Wednesday not only against tho application of tho Monroe doctrine to the Venezuelan dispute, but against tho wholo doctrine itself as having any relation to modern conditions. He agreed that what Monroe said about "civilization" certainly did not apply to any boundary, dispute that tho hos tility to the extension by Kuropean powers of their systems to any portion of this hemisphere, as expressed in that message, had especial reference to tho systems of government which woro based on tho divine rights of kings and which were directed to tho over throw of all republics wherever exist ing: that the Monroe doctrine was in nowise intended as insisting upon Re publican forms of government in this hemisphere or as committing this gov ernment to maintain the doctrine out side its own borders or except as its own integrity might bo affected. His peroration was about the brotherhood of the English and American peoples and tho importance of the supremacy of the Anglo-Saxon race throughout the world to the perpetuation of free institutions and high political and moral ideas. Tho senate is in for a period of long speeches, Ihe .Monroe resolutions re ported Monday will be debated at con siderable length. Senator Warren of Wyoming gives noitce of a speech on tho price of farm animals, in which ho will take up the shrinkage on sheep. which is attributed by the protection ists to the Gorman law. Senator Jones of Arkansas, who is managing the silver substitute tor the bond bill, was asked when ho would bo ready for a vote, and replied that there were sevveral speeches yet to be made. The House is at work on the appro priation bills, tho military academy bill being the one now before it. The pension bill wont through a long tour of speech making. Probably no less thau 50 Kepulbicnns members have seized the occasion to declare their un living devotion to the veteran and their I i i L l noror ami tu'it-suiiiii.i ui mi- chuiiiuim tration of the pension office by Com missioner Lochren and Secretary Hoke Smith, liartlctt of Xew York made a plucky fight, and in tho main a success ful one, against any further increases of pension. Under tho rules of the House new legislation must not be in- j troduced into a general appropriation lull unless it tends to reduce expenses. Hut th pension bib as reported not only prof usedto give pensions to widows dependent on their daily labor as now, but also to those who have "o00 or less of "net income" annually, clearly a violation of the rules. She might have a homsctcad and the income on $10.(00 of invested pmnerty, or even more un der rulings as to what "net" income shall be. and yet draw the iirnsion. i IBartlett raised the point of order j j against it, and We (injection was bus- j I tained- lit- used the Fame weapon! ! against many other provisions that! j changed existing law without prmot- 0 BelkwJenua PUtci ( y v '-- for J PNEUMOrjlA. j men lost tho sight of both eyes or lost both arms or both legs in the war. A message from to president was road in tho House Friday, asking prompt legislation to further extend the time in which litigation in relation to lho forfeiture, of railroad land grantB ninv bo prosecuted ny mo auorney general. The recognition of tho belligerency of Cuba is becoming one of tho lead ing subjects of discussion here and may degenerate to a contest on tho part of congress to get ahead of the president. The president Monday transmitted to tho limine the currcp'indnnoc In tho state department relative to lliespceches delivered at Kdinburg, Scot., and lioston, Eng., for which llartlett's resolution had called for liayard's im peachment. ltayard in the correspond ence substantially admitted tho words attributed to him, but insisted that thev should bo taken in connection witll the rest of the speeches for a firm understanding. An unusual and unprecedented inci dent occurred in the house Fii'dny, when the opening prayer Chapl n Con don was loudly applauded. His invo cation included the following: "Our Heavenly Father, we thank thee for tho degree of special liberty which wo as a people enjoy, and our hearts go to those in other lands who are struggling for a wider liberty. Es pecially do we pray for the Cubans, ard ask that, if they bo right, their eirorts may be crowned with success. And we pray that our country may do for themal! that it can without com promising its dignity or iu disregard of its sacred obligations and duties to other nations. " Tho Senate Wednesday adopted reso lutions reported by Cullum from the Foreign officers eommitto about the Armenian outrages in Turkey, making a dignified aud courteous request to the signatories of the lierlin treaty to fulfil their pledges set forth in that instrument for tho protection of Chris tains against fanaticism and lawless violence.

Ho was beaten in less than half a minute.and he made no attempt to fight back. As a result of this beating there is to-day in New York a trembling policeman and here is the story of the affair. Jacob Kiis tells it. When it hap pened he was u reporter at police head quarters for tho Associated Press. I 'Tho Masonic Temple was on fire." says Mr. Kiis. "The temple iH on tho corner of lwenty-third street an Sixth avenue, and mio me happened more than ten years ago. The fire-lines were formed, snow was falling and the police were out of temper. Along from the r i f th Avenue hotel there came a small man, with his hands in his pockets and a big cigar sticking out of the corner of bis mouth. Ho did not notice tho lire lines or any thing, but walked straight ahead with his head d w-n. Ho ran into the arms of a big policeman who had tired him self pushing people back. "Blank, blank, blank!" said the policeman, "do vou take me for a wooden Indian?" Without waiting for an answer, lho policeman seized tho small man by tho collar, and. with a few more blanks, brought his club with a loud whack across the small man's back below tho waist. The small man said not a word, barely looked up and resumed his walk, with his hands still in his pockets. 1 said to tho policeman, whom I knew: "Great heavens, man! do you know what you've done? Do you know, who that was you clubbed?" "Naw." said tho policeman, "I don't." "Well," said, "it's Gen. Grant, "and his face fell almost a foot." i The man who clubbed old Gen. Grant is still on the force, ai.d Mr. Kiis knows him. At present Gen. Grant's son is a police commissioner with the power of blighting police men's lives. The policeman who clubbed the commissioner's father is now trembling and wondering as ho wonders whether by any chance, his name or number was handed down in tho Grant family. He need not wonder, for it was not, and Mr. Kiis does not Iiroposo to tell who the policeman was. Jesides, says Mr. Kiis, Gen. Grant set a good example when he took his brief clubbing like a little man and walked on without a murmur. He knew that ho had run into a sentry on dutv and was pleased to escape so easily. Gen. Grant's son would prob ably not take as calm a view of Mr. ! Kiis does of (ion. Grant's clubbing, but it is not likely that would be veiy vengeful. He is a mild man, not anxious for gore or trouble. and Mary (Palmer) Tyler. He came from a versatile family. His grand father. Koyall Tyler, was a distin guished man i! lioston in colonial times, holding many public stations. His father, born "in the neighborhood of Fanuel Hall," and christened Win. C.

From the I'rovlilenec Journal. I The career of young William S. Jewetl, most distinguished at Law rence, Mass., but almost equally well known in lower Vermont and Xow ii oi.i,-f. nml famous in several cities in northeastern Massachusetts, j is ono of those singular revolutions ( of tho great degree of property which j certain kinds of Americans manage to : achieve, and vet finally find themselves ; overwhelmed." A charge of embezzling H100.000, preferred by Congressman Knox of Lawrence and others, has now) apparently put an cod to the; youngesi. bank president's " liminciering. It is possible to look upon ins past as a thing completed, and but for the con sequences entailed upon Jewctt him self bv tho alleged "rmiinnlity oi ins r.tu 'inr.-rrcd aloii!.' with the experi ences and deeds of other Napoleons f lli.unnn Tho-.lL'll llO JlilllKClf llUS attained to a position of prominence in n ui'ti. .iilnr kind of financiering "id "made" some money to defend him self within his misfortunes, he. too, may bo regarded as one of thn fallen conuuerors. Most of tho young man's enemies him ii hank "wrecker." Hut it remains to bo proved that ho can justly i.a ..hiaoorl in lho ranks of such finan ciers. More properly, he waB a bank purchaser, buyer and seller of that specifically protectedvariety of financial concern known as the national bank. He bought, one after the other, four national banks, closed up their affairs, and in every case made his venture worth tho pains taken. Starting out in life as a clerk in a furniture store and remaining in that humble position until he was 21 years old, he spent the last few years of that period oi nis ex istence studying up the national bank business. It is reported that when he left the furniture house with which he was connected he had in the neighbor hood of S.0OO to begin his operations with. First he began buying up the stock of the Windsor national bank of Windsor, Vt. The shares were held at &y0, and the apital outstanding amounted to c'-'iO.t'OO- In. a short time Jewett was in possession of a majority of tho shares. There was a reorganization soon after, and the subject of this sketch then became president. This enable linn to earn a salary of some importance, oesiucs leaving him in control of the affairs of the institution. In a few years Jewett wound up the business of! the, corporation, and the statement is made that after liquiding all claims he found himself with a profit or sur plus to his credit which covered him about fl'iO on his original investment of ifijO per share. Tho next institution purchased was the Essex national bank of Haverhill. Mass. This was a larger concern than the Windsor bank. The capital was. glflO.OOO. In process of a short time the president ofl the Haverhill corporation was this .aine Willliam S. Jewett. He was at that time) abouti.'iO years of age. Soon after the: attempted to buy the national bank of I Meihueii, and failed. Not dishearted. , however, he proceeded to take up the i stock of the Lake national of Wolf boro. N. H. In this case the capital i outstanding amounted to tl.iO.OIX). The deal was successfully made. Both the Essex and the Wolfboro banns were Eoon in process of liquida tion. After this, nothing Boemed par ticularly difficult to the voting man, and certainly a very dillicult enterprise, which was next on his programme, was easily accomplished. This was nothing less significant and preten tious than the buyng of the old na-1 tional I'cmtierton bank of Lawrence, i hen Jewett's scheme I but in a few months i I the task was completed. Hero the i ; capital outstanding was Jl.'iO.OoO. But j by that time in tho career of the I schemer money seemed to (low into his hnnds,aud he had powerful friends who assisted him. A new plan now sirucK jewett s lancy. it was so easy to make money by winding tip banks that he evidently thought it could not be entirely unprofitable to found one. As a result of this idea he estab lished tho Arlington nntionnl bank of I Lawrence, and became its president. i .s ine owner oi ine controlling in j teres t in tho i'emberton, he shortly af ! tor sold tho assets of that ins'titu t ion to the Arlington. He now had with him in the Arlington national bank directorate Congressman Knox and two or three other Lawrence capi talists.
