As noon as the Senate journal had been read and approved the clerk of the House an nounced the passage by the House of the LiH appropriating Jf 100,000 for the expenses on tho commission to Investi gate tho boundary between Jlritish tiiiiana and Venezuela, which was recommended by the President and the Vice President immediately laid it before the senate. Mr, Sherman moved its rcfureneo to tho committee ou forrigu relations, but iu the absence of Mr. Morgan,' chairmuu of the foreign relations committee, Mr. Coekroll requested Mr. Sherman to withdraw his motion until the arrival of tho senator from Ala bama. Tliis was iloue. , As soon as Mr. Morgan arrived tho resolution was laid bcloro tho Senate again and Mr. Morgan moved to refer tt to the foreign relations committee, The bill should, lit his opinion, be de liberated upon long cnouyh to secure an absolutely correct judgment, and he concurred with Mr. Sherman in tho belief that it should hrnt have due consideration, but he wanted it dis tinctly understood that lie would op pose such a reference unless it was made with the distinct understanding that Congress should not take tho hol iday recess until it wan reported baoU. J ii tho Hawaiian affair, Air, Morgan aid, Mr. Cleveland in the exercise of Ms power, had sent to Hawaii a com mlshioner to obtain certain informa tion. He took that action without the advice and consent of the Senate, and when Mr. Mount's report was mailo the debate upon it waslargely devoted .o the questions of the President's powers, purposes, etc. In other words, if Mr. Plouiit had been appointed iu virtue of an uet of (,'ongress. Congress, and not tho executive, would havo been responsible and there could have been no possible issue betweeu the legisla tive and executive brauchc of the government. The qucttiou now pre sented, therefore, was whether Con gress should at this time declare the policy of the Friitcd States, or leave it iu the Prcvdilent's hands us still in the Held of diplomacy. He did not want it uudci'hlood, however, that a diTcrcnce of feeling existed between congress and the executive. Jt wu.'i only a question of method, not princi ple now. So far as the Monroe doc trine was concerned, that had been definitely settled by the action of the president, t.'lcvc laud'M uu-siugc. and more particularly Mr. Olney's nyte to the liritish prime minister, placed the Monroe doctrine iu a clear, substantial anil unequivocal light before the world, and uny action emigres might laho in atllriiiinK' it, whether by tint pessage of the house bill, amended or unamended, it could not, be mistaken. Mr. rgau congratulated the coun try that the consummation hud been reached, lie iiaid he uus incapable of expressing the (,'i'ati.ude he fell over this clear cut und tlctiiiite enuueiatiou of an Anierieiiu doctrine founded on love and reverence for American ideas of government ami rooted and grounded iu the spiritof the American institutions, it was a com lusiou com porting with the dignity of the United Slates as a government and the pres tige of the people itsu nation. At last a great American doctrine tixed absolutely the attitude of tho United States and warned the world that it would be maintained end en forced. After reading extracts from Secretary Oitiey's dispatches, lu mi id that the Secretary's conclusion were in harmony with his ow n views. This was an American doctrine, such in the Secretary of State formulutc I and ono which when it became applicable in a material way to a country on the Western hemisphere, it behooved all to suiuiort, Mr. Sherman exnrcssed the belief that there would he n war, and that t he ma Iter cou Ul be ad justed peaceably.

Tho news of the Clcvelaud message, un comproiiitsingly upholding Venezuela and the Monroe doctrine, created the wildest joy and enthusiasm here. It has produced new confidence in the future of the country. The Venezu elan foreign ofllce declares that it will custtiln thediguity and sovereignty of tho repnblie by force if necessary. One hundred and tii'ty thousand sol diers can be pnt Into the field. Tho government declines to speak oflicially in regard to the Uruan inci dent, but it is almost sure that it will refuse to concede tho indemnity of gilO.ooO recently demanded by Oreat Jiritain. . Jt is reported that England's war ships are on their way here. The ar rival of the American naval mquudron iu anxioudy uwaited. TIio Venezuelan press calls upon tho peopio to show their patriotism ou this great occasion and their gratitude towards the noble iiepublio of tho Northwest which lias proved in tho supreme crisis its staunch alliance to tho principles laid down by its most advanced statesmen in the early years of its history. The press also urges upon the peopio the duty of preparing for war with all their energy. Spec ial editions were issued by the news papers in tho evening, reiterating the expression of tho popular feeling of gratitude that there was at last to be union of political sentiment between Morthond South America, productive of beneficial results. They ulso de duce their confidence in tho outcome of tho commission, which President Cleveland proposes to send to examine into the merits of the dispute with (rent Pritain. The prestige, they add, is now unique in the political world. Kuglishmen resident in Caracas be truy their uneasiness, but express the opinion that there will be u peaceful solution. Caracas Is crazy with patriotic en thusiasm. The populace show thai they uro deeply moved to gratitude toward their sister republic. Pictures of President Monroe lire displayed everywhere and the statue of Wash ington lias been decorated wiith Amer ican Hags and floral wreaths. A grand mass meeting was held in the public place Jast night, at which ringing speeches were made. The American minister was serenaded by the mili tary band. A grand ball in celebra tion of the event which now absorbs t lie thoughts of Venezuelans will be held January 1 at the Union club. Tho minister of foreign all'airs called at the American legation yes terday and expressed to Minister Ha.citon the thanks of President Cl'eSpO. President Crespo said that he was preparing a personal letter of thanks to President Cleveland. He added: "The uttiludeof Venezuela and of the executive head upon tho question of tho boundary line in Ouiamt will always bo one of self-protect ion, The Itcpuldic will uphold rights that prop erly may bo regarded us hers at all hazards' President Cleveland and myself were both as ono in the losing and iu regaining power and certain, ly it. hcem-i as if we were one in dentiuy and iu action."

Thomas S, Wolsey, who holds the cha r of international law in tho Yale law school, speaking of tho Pres ident's message on the V'cnezuelau dispute, t-uld: ' The President has been ill-advised. When ho Miytthut tho dispute between Oreat l'.ritain and Venezuela is dan gerous to our national tafety, he says that which everybody known t- be ridiculous. The I're.s.deut emphasizes unduly a single phrase of the Monroe doctrine, without taking into account the special circumstances which the Monroe, doctrine was intended to meet. Ill tho whole matter, the Monroe doctrine should be kept out of sight as inapplicable, and the question should be itrglied on grounds of 1111 t'umal policy.

People are fanciful and it is Fancy, after all, that is happiness, and the mo tive which dictateao the world. Soipe one fancies that the cozy fire nt home and tho environment of favorite books is enough to mako lifo worth living dur ing tho winter months. That will do for tho way worn, weary, easily satis fied, old fashioned roan and woman, but the up to dato cavalier and the new woman require a change many changes In fact, and they seek in tho dull winter dayu to find the climato they wearied of in bprlng and whined would pass away in summer. Sitting behind frosted window panes and gazing on tho glistening snow crystals they elgh for tho warmth and brightness they lovo better now than a few ehort months ago and, In no other country may these whims, these fancies be bo easily gratified as In America. Abso lute comfort in these days, and In Hpecd and safety, too, Inntead of tho wauled time and discomforts of the not distant past. Ponce do Leon who sought the fountain of Eternal Youth on tho shores of Florida consumed many of the pre cious days of later lifo, and died befoto Attaining tho great prize. Do Roto wan lured In tho came direction and found at Hot Springs, by the Bid of UJelah, the dusky Indian maiden, tho wonderful product of the "JJreath of the Oreat Spirit," but before he could return home and apprise his friends of the gre dis covery and enjoy the certainty of gold and youth, which ho believed ho had in his grasp ho fell a victim to tho inlaaml of tho Great ttlvor and found a grave in Its muddy depths. To-day tho seeker after health dimply boards ono of the magnificent trains of tho Missouri Pa cific System, and after something to eat and a nap, wakes up to find himself In this delightful winter ltoEort, ready to cmbraco health which neems to be Invariably renewed by the magic of the air and water. In Do Roto's time tho fsccret of tho Fountain of Lifo was sedu lously guarded by the savages, but now a hotipitablo peopio opens Its arms to receive the tourist whether his quest be for health or amusement. Fancy some times tires of Hot Springs, strange as It may seem, but Fancy enys "the fields beyond aro greener" and the climate of San Antonio U more desirable and thus another rldo in another palace, and new scenes and new faces pleaao tho eye and satisfy the rest less cravings of this master of man. Thus from tho Father of Waters to the waves which wash the wcHtern chore of this great country tho tourist Is led by a whim, but rnont de lightedly captive. Mexico has been described ao the Egypt of the new world, and tho comparison lo lltllng, and ho who dare not face the dangers of tho deep, and. prefers to retain hla meals as well us his life, should mr.ko tho Journey to the land of tho Monto smmas, anil there learn tho story of the apes within the faces of a people which change less la tho passing years than any other on the Western Continent. This Is the land of Sunshlno and Color; of history and romance; and ns bright eyes will smile at you from under be witching head gear ou may bo found in Castile or Arragon. Fancy carries one to California of course, and this Journey, ns It onco was termed, Is now so easily performed as to have lost til of Its terrors and left only a mmit emphatically delightful trip to bo the mibject of mauy future conversations. The land of fruits and flowers and fair women; Fancy can ask no more after this tour unless it has been, satisfied for once; and Etlll it is Fancy which takes the wearied traveler back to tho h.omo and tho familiar sur roundings and tho friends and loves of homo. There ho may contemplate new Journeys and new dlvertisements, but there lingers in his memory a pleasure ho would not part with, and ho hopes soon to again enjoy the comforts af forded by this Great System of Railway which has taken him safely out and brought him safely home and has not robbed him of the Joys which Fancy b'lu"8, F-JjJ!AKi:u- Tim nt r ami t utor of I Imt-rrt.

Everyone knows the story of Whist ler's celebrated reply to Oscar Wilde's envious exclamation of delight of a clever sketch of the eccentric painter how Oscar said, "Oh, Jimmy, how I wish I had said that!" and how Whist ler answered, 'Never mind, dear boy, you will" but everyone does not know, says the Chap-book, how during the time that they were frinds, a kitten was given to Whistler, and that in token of affection and witlioutundue curiosity ho had named it Oscar. Time passed a nd Whistler's wifo invaded the studio ono day with a momentous announcement. "Jimmy," Kaid she, "did you know Oscar has kittens'." "Impossible," said Whistler, laying down his brushes; "Oscar can't." "Come and bcc," said bis wife. Together they went to where Ose.n aud the kittens lay. Mrs. Whistlei looked at her husband, who stooiljfoi a moment iu amazement and dismay. "Never mind," ho aaid, "they inus' be plagiarized."
