tVisntxc ro.Y, Dec. 20. 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.

The I lltl.) Kibul.lif Wild Over tho l'nl-tleiii'-
Cahacas, Venezuela, Dec. 20. 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
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
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

fessor. 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. The President finds
h's oiler of aihitration declined,

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

Why ArtUt WhtiUer - Conlrln't Holler
Ills Cat Had Ha l Kittens.
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."
