Treaty Between Thia Conntry and
Great Britain Is Made Salisbury
Virtually Abandons His Earlier
Monroe Doctrine Stands
The United States wins and the Monroa
doctrine has life aud force Great Brit-
ain and the United States have reached
an agreement concerning the Venezuela
dispute and the British yield everything
for which the United States has asked
Not only is the controversy to be submit
ted to arbitration but all of the territory
in dispute comes within the jurisdiction
of the tribunal of five arbitrators Every
foot -of ground which the Government ot
Venezuela has claimed is to have its title-
adjudged by the arbitrators from the
Essequibo to the undisputed Venezuelaa
frontier The famous Schombourgk line
disappears from the contention and that
arbitrary limit of Britains claims is
summarily abandoned The whole nego
tiation has been carried on between the
United States and Great Britain directly
and the right of the United States to in
terfere under the Monroe doctrine is thus
conceded This diplomatic victory wiB
set a new milepost in the history of the
United States It is one of the greatest
triumphs of a century of American diplo
A year ago last month it was an
nounced that President Cleveland and
Secretary Olney had decided to interfere
in Venezuelas behalf and demand
tration under the Monroe doctrine A
year ago President Cleveland was prepar
ing the famous message to Congress
Which gave oBicial confirmation of this
news and which brought on the menace
of war between the two nations Panic
seized Wall street and stocks fell rapidly
Lord Salisburys reply to Secretary 01
neys masterly note was a somewhat curt
and supercilious refusal to admit that the
United States had any standing in the
premises He distinctly declined to give
any countenance whatever to the Monroe
doctrine and appeared rather amused
that such an absurd pretension should be
set up by the United States This was in
line with the British policy concerning

the South American republic had sougWj
to secure arbitration or some other settle
ment but had been treated with fofty
disdain The United States Government
had repeatedly requested the British Gov
ernment to consent to arbitration but had
always met the same curt refusal
Salisbury Yieds Every Point
Now Lord Salisbury yields everything
for which the American Government has
contended The pertinency of the Mon
roe doctrine is recognized and the result
of this will be an immense enhancement
of the prestige of the republic throughout
Central and South America All of the
disputed territory is to be submitted to
arbitration and not merely a part there
of The agreement between the United
States and Great Britain is complete and
it only remains to draft the treaty and

ezuela has not as yet signified its ac-
ceptance of the conditions but as Minis

Informed of every stage of the negotia
tions no trouble is anticipated oa that
score In fact the Venezuelans are de
lighted with the outcome and grateful to
the United States Government for its
plucky and successful intervention
The agreement secures all the rights
for which Venezuela has contended Un
der the finding of the Board of Arbitra
tion it will be possible even probable for
Venezuela to secure title to all the terri
tory lying west of the Essequibo includ
ing both banks of the Orinoco and the
military establishment on the coast which
the British claimed to have inherited
from the Dutch The only point secured
by Lord Salisbury is that the settlers
who have rights of prescription running
hack fifty years or more may have their
titles confirmed but the jurisdiction will
pass to Venezuela if the verdict be in her
