The president has surprised the
whole world by bringing in a message
taking strong and popular ground in
favor of the Monroe doctrine as ap
plied to the Venezuelan dispute, and
there is every indication that the doc

the passage of the bill, when Boutelle
of Maine, the most rampant jingoist in
all the country opposed, the passage of
the bill without its reference to a com
mittee for fear that too much haste
might be exhibited! His partizan
hatred of Cleveland got the better of
