SALISBURY'S SAY Papers on the Subject of Arbi tration Laid Before the House of Lords. Venezuelan Matter He Thinks Will Not Be Difficult of Settlement, As to the Larger Question of General Arbitration He Is Not So Confident. LONDON, July 18.—The Marqni* Of Salisbury laid before the house of lords papers on the subject of arbitration. Kis lordship said that the negotiations between the United States and Great Britain were not complete, but that they are advancing amicably. On the smaller question of Venezuela, regard ing which the United States had an ramed an attitude of friendly protec tion, difficulties arose out of the fact that Venezuela's claim placed two thirds of the colony of British Guiana subject to arbitration. The lirst thing necessary was to ascertain the real facts in regard to the controversy from the history of Venezuela. When that had been fully ascertained by a commission, in which both countries had confidence, lie felt that the diplomatic questions which would follow would not be very difficult of adjustment, but even if they should be, he did jiot fear for the result Hard Matter to Arrange. With regard to a general system of arbitration between the United Stat and Great Britain, Lord Salisbury said there would be difficulty in dealing with cases 60 large or of a vital charac ter. After much discussion with the United States upon that point he thought that the tendency of the United States was to desire the rapid and sum mary decision of a question. The Brit ish government thought that the princi pie of obligatory arbitration was attended with considerable hazard. Proper machinery must be first pro vided. In recent years the United States had evinced a disposition to take up the causes of many South American repub lies, but this government had not quar rolled with that disposition. Great Brit ain, hi* lordship added, had taken similar interest in disputes regarding the fron tiers of Sweden, Holland, Belgium and Portugal. In studying the welfare of neighboring peoples, it is necessary to remember that the claims on such peoples may possibly become matters of arbitration, and since that it is neces fary to guard against an obligatory eystem of arbitration. For these reasons, his lordship said, he had ap proached the question with considerable caution. He felt that in a matter of fuch supreme importance, it was neces sary to be careful of every step that he was taking. rnratted u Uansaal Coarse. Lord Salsbnry concluded by saying that he had pursued, with the consent of the United States, an unusual course in laying these papers on the table, yrhile negotiations were still pending^ This had been done in order that the best intellects on both sides should ap ply themselves to a matter affecting the welfare of the whole human race, in such a singular degree, and especially the good relations with the United States, with which it was the desire of the government to be on the friendliest terms. The remarks of the Marquis of Salisbury ^ere greeted with hearty cheers by the lords. EXCITED KENTUCKIAX8. Vsknown Toang Woman Found at the flam Pearl Bryan Wai Discovered.

Bryan was given an ovation hero last night. Ten thousand people stood packed in the thoroughfare in front of the Coates House and howled them selves \nto a frenzy of enthusiasm. The cheering began at least an hour before the presidential candidate was adver tised to appear, and it was kept up with an occasional lull until the dis tinguished free silver advocate ap peared on the balcony of the hotel. Then the vast throng broke out with re doubled energy and gave him an ova tion that was not unlike that which ho received after his famous speech at the Chicago convention. The Hon. Henry, S. Julian, chairman of the Jackson county central commit tee, introduced the silver orator. Mr. llryan Speaks. When the cheering ceased Mr. Bryan said he would break his promise not to make a political speech and then pro ceeded to briefly discuss the political issues. He said: The platform adopted at Chicago Is, In my humble judgment, one of the most splendid preM-ntations of public policies ever adopted by a national convention in the United States. It presents those issues which, in the judgment of the delegates, are paramount in this campaign. It Is a Democratic plat fur 111 in every sentence, word and' syllable. It is a Democratic platform that carries the party back to the days of Its founder, Thomas Jefferson, «nd to its most courageous defender, Andrew Jackson. There never was a time when the real jTinciplea of Democracy were dearer to the hearts of the American people than they are t«xlay. and it i9 be cause that platform Appea s to the Heart* of the American people that you llnd them rising in its support from the Pacific ocean clear down to the places where the waves of the Atlantic beat. It is not the platform of a section. It is the platform of our common country and appeals to those who love mankind to arise in Its de fense 1 believe to the very bottom of my heart, and the telief touches every fibre of my being, that until we restore silver to its equal place by the side of gold, to the place it occupied for so many years, sj many centuries and so many ages, there can lie no lasting prosperity brought back to the homes of those who toil.
