Several newspapers in their yearly
political reviews, devote much atten

trine. Tho Vosslscho Zeltung (Inde

"Whoever has a claim against an

lect it, whether they be private indi
viduals or nations. If anybody dis
putes our right to compel payment of

that person if ho be willing to pay
tho debt himself, or give guarantees
therefor. If so, tho matter speedily
could be settled, but, if this other
per6on Is unwilling to give such guar

The United States could settlo tho

that It do so. In this case the United

Tho Vossische Zeltung refers to
what It calls "the wild noise" in a
portion of tho American press which
declares that Germany has no right
under tho Monroo doctrine to take
forclblo action In Venezuela and that
Germany has not even recognized tho
"Tho latter assertion is correct,"
BayB the Journal. "No other European
state ever recognized this doctrine and
we bellevo no European country will
over do so. The Monroo doctrine Is
not adapted to becomo a subject of
diplomatic negotiation and tho docu
ment hardly exists in which thi3 doc
trino is laid before any European
power with tho request that this
power make a deputation thereon."
After reciting the history and origin
of tho framer of the doctrine tho pa
per nsserts that the right of interven
tion claimed by tho holy alliance has
long since been abandoned. Tho coun
tries of South America have been in
a state of chronic revolution, yet no
body in Europe dreams of Interven
tion. Tho disastrous issue of Napo
leon's attempt in Mexico renders It
probable that no European state will
over repeat the effort to 'establish
Itself In tho western hemisphere.
"Later Interpretations of the Monroo
doctrine," continues the Zeltung, "do
not Involvo the defined hegemony of
tho United States over Central nnd
South America. The United States
claims suzerainty over these states,
with tho right of intervention, but
denies to European countries the
right to interfere in their affairs. How
far such suzerainty extends and what
rights and obligations come from It
have never been cleared up. Neither
havo the Central and South American
states recognized this suzerainty, but
they have decidedly rejected it owing
to its repulsion of the Romanic and
Germanic races. No European state
has made concession in this respect
and finally tho United States itsplf has
given no clear statement of Its alms.
"Tho Monroo doctrlno does not be
long to International law, but to con
jectural politics. It binds nobody and
endows nobody with rights. Germany
has no obligation to recognize and no
occasion to dispute tho Monroo doc
trine. Tho South American states
stand toward Germany as sovereign
nations, nnd they all havo tho rights
and all tho obligations of sovereign
states, and having ouch obligations
must pay their debts.

WORK AHEAD FOR CONGRESS.
Not Much Expected for Several Days
Many Senators Still Absent.
WASHINGTON Many of the sona-
tora who left Washington for tho
Christmas holidays aro still absent
and tho present indications nro that
when business is resumed there will
not bo a very full attendance. Bo
foro tho week Is far advanced, how
ever, tho senate will again bo In regu
lar working order and there will be
little cessation of work before March
4. Tho prediction is very general that
tho remainder of tho session will be
exceedingly busy, because of tho num
ber of important questions which will
bo pressed forward before final ad
journment. During tho present week and prob
ably for Bomo time to como tho omni
bus statehood bill will bo tho chief
topic of discussion on the floor, but
tinder tho unanimous agreement by
which tho bill was made tho unfinished
business it cannot bo taken up any
day before 2 o'clock. It Is tho pur
pose of the friends of tho bill to press
Its consideration and not to allow the
bill to be sidetracked unless under
very great pressure. Tho present
purpose is to give way. only for appro
priation bills, but there aro no appro
priation bills on tho senate calendar.
It is, however, tho purpose of tho
senatorial leaders, and especially of
thoso who oppose the statehood bill,
to press appropriation bills to the
front as rapidly as possible.
The senato committee on appro
priations will immediately take up the
legislative, executive and judicial ap
propriation bill and it will be reported
to the senate as soon as possible. It
Is a bill which demands considerable
Investigation, and it is not probable
that It will reach tho senato much be
foro tho middle of the month. When
It is reported tho committee will seek
to secure its immediate consideration.
According to the arrangement moda
before the holidays, the debate on tho
statehood bill will bo resumed at 2
o clock Monday, Senator Nelson of
Minnesota being tho first speaker on
the list. He is a member of the com
mittee on territories and in addition
to his opposition to the admission of
the territories of Now Mexico and Ar
izona, ho Is a staunch advocate of the
bill for the admission of Oklahoma
and Indian Territory as one state,
which was reported by tho majority
of tho committeo as a substitute for
tho house omnibus bill. He has a
carefully prepared speech and Its de
livery probably will require tho great
er part of two days. Senator Bur
rows will bo heard next and ho will
probably speak for two days or more.
Other republican senators havo agreed
to speak in opposition to tho bill and
it is now estimated that there will
be no fewer than fifteen anti-statehood
speeches before consideration of the
measure is concluded. Some speeches
in support of tho bill aro promised,
but tho indications aro somewhat
against tho delivery of any of them
during the present week, though it is
possible that Senator Foraker, who Is
an earnest advocate of the omnibus
bill, may bo heard some time within
tho next few days.
GOVERNOR TAFT REPORTS.
Submits Annual Statement of
WASHINGTON. Tho annual report
of tho Philipplno commission and a
soparato report by Governor W. H.
Taft, made public at tho War depart
ment, gives a review of the results of
the year's work of the commission and
making recommendations for legisla
tive action by congress deemed essen
tial to the welfare of the Islands.
After reciting a history of the estab
lishment of civil government through
out the various provinces, Governor
Taft in his report says It has not been
definitely determined what shall be
done with respsct to Mindanao where,
ho says, hobtlltiy to tho American
does not extend beyond the lake, La
nao Moros. The governor is of tho
opinion that it may bo possible to in
duce the sultan of Jolo to part with
some of tho rights he claims to tho
Jolo group, thus obviating many ob
stacles now encountered.
The Moros, he says, do not under
stand popular government and do not
desire it, preferring control by dattos.
"Possibly far in tho future," he says,
"control by dattos may cease. For tho
present, however, it Is necessary only
to provide a paternal, strong, but sym
pathetic government for these follow
ers of Mohammed."
Governor Taft tolls of the conditions
that havo made It necessary for the I
islands to purchase about $1,000,000
worth of food on which to Uve and of
tho effects war has had upon agricul
ture, almost the only -yource of wealth

POSTMASTER MADE TO RESIGN
Threats of Violence Made by Lawless
Mlssissipplans Compels Capable
Employe of Government to Quit the
WASHINGTON. The feature of tho
cabinet meeting Friday was tho de
cision to close permanently the post
office at Indianola, Miss., from which
tho postmaster, Minnie M. Cox, color
ed, resigned under compulsion a few
days ago, since which time tho office
has been closed.
Tho postmaster general has had a
thorough Investigation made, and has
becomo satisfied that the woman was
obliged to resign under duress; In fact,
that her life was endangered.
Having represented this slate of af
fairs to tho cabinet, after a long dis
cussion, tho decision above noted was
reached and tho office will not bp re
opened until tho peoplo in the district
aro ready to accept this woman as
Secretary Cortelyou, for tho presi
dent, made public the following:
"Tho postmaster at Indianola, Miss.,
is Mrs. Minnie AV. Cox, a colored wo
man. She served three years as post
master under President Harrison.
When President McKinley came in she
was again appointed, In 1897, nonrly
six years ago.
"Her character and standing in tho
community aro endorsed by tho best
and most reputable peoplo In tho town.
"Tho postmaster and her husband
own from $10,000 to $15,000 worth of
property in Sunflower county. Tho
reports of postofflco inspectors who
havo Investigated tho office from time
to time show that she has given tho
utmost satisfaction to all the patrons
of tho office; that sho is at all times
courteous, faithful, competent and
honest in the discharge of her duties.
Her moral standing in the community
is of the highest.
"The postmaster recently forwarded
her resignation to take effect on Jan
uary 1, but the report of inspectors
and information received from various
reputable white citizens of tho town
and neighborhood show that tho
resignation was forced by a brutal
and lawless element purely upon the
ground of her color and was obtained
under terror of threats. Tho mayor
of tho town and tho sheriff of tho
county both told tho postofflco in
spector that if sho refused to resign
they would not be responsible for her
safety, although at tho same time not
one word was said against her."

GEORGETOWN, Ky. Ex-Secretary
of Stato Caleb Powers, who has had

his third trial for complicity in tho
murder of tho late Governor William
Gocbel, issued tho following appeal to
"I havo had writton a number of
letters to different Btates asking for
financial aid in my coming trial for
alleged complicity in tho Goebol mur
der. A portion of the press has,
through a misunderstanding of tho
facts, attempted to thwart my plan for
raising tho much-needed money with
which to defend myself, by circulating
a report that these letters were not
genuine because signed by different
persons for me.
"It is true that many of the letters
wero signed by different persons, be
cause It was impossible for one person
to send them out in tho limited tlmo
before my next trial, but all of theso
letters aro genuine.
"I havo been continuously In the

Cordon of Deputies Will Protect Ne
INDIANOLA, Miss. Every effort is
being made to suppress any troublo

"I know there has been a lot of
talk in Illinois lately regarding Mitch
ell's politics. There has been talk of
bringing him out ,for governor. But
the amusing part of tho situation is
that while they havo been talking In
Illinois of making him the democratic
nominee for governor, in somo eastern
places there has been talk of, him as
a running mate for President Roose

"The truth of the situation, so far
