' Poller of Stat Department.
' WASHINGTON, Dec.'. 11. Nothing ' has
yet occurred In . Venezuela to Indue the
State department to change the policy of
noninterference which It bas adopted.
Th president Is showing particular In
terest In th situation and thla morning
he called Secretary Hay away from bis
regular Thursday diplomatic reception to
confer respecting Venezuela.
The chairmen of the two congressional
committees charged with th car of for
eign affairs also called at the State de
partment during the forenoon to talk over
the Vaneiuelan developments.
Senator Cullom, chairman of tha com
'rnlttee on froelgu relations, expressed re
gret that England -and Germany had de
stroyed, by breaking up or sinking, the
vessels of the Venesuelan war fleet.
"They might better have been kept for
toy houses. As against a formidable
squadron, they were Dot fit for anything
else," he remarked.
, He believed . that If It - were- considered
necessary to selte tba vessels - they could
have been kept Intact until after the pres
ent trouble was settled and then restored
' Senator Cullom expressed the opinion
that th United States would not become
involved seriously in the present disturb
ances, as be was satisfied that neither Great
Britain nor Germany had any Intention
of acquiring Vaneiuelan territory.
The Stat department 1s so far well
pleated with th energetic yet discreet
manner In which Mr. Bowen has' acted
There bav be,n no orders issued to any
navel vessels to repair to Venesue
lan porta, and it la not Intended to Issue
them, though there Is, of course, always
danger that the attempt - of an American
vessel to pasa the "peaceful blockade" may
In the end call for the appearance of
' American men-of-war upon the scene.
. America Preserve freedom.
1 It Is an Interesting fact that up to this I
point the department has not undertaken
to recogotte the limitations that might be
placed on American commerce In caae of a
Venezuelan blockade. The Oerman govern
ment, no later than laat year, sought to se
cure an understanding on this point, but
the State department simply recorded the
views Of that government without either
accepting or rejecting them.
The matter came up in December? 1901,
when Germany was considering coercive
measures against Venezuela and addressed
the following communication to the State
. In case the German government should be
obliged to use coercion against Veneiuela
In connection with the pending claims It
will have to be considered what kind Of
measures ahould be applied.
The most Important measure of co
ercion, that la the blockade of Venesuelan
harbors, would have U be carried through
without declaration of war preceding It.
The blockade would therefore be a peace
blockade. Such a blockade would touch
likewise the ships of neutral powers, Inas
much aa such ships, although a conilaca
tlon Of them would not have to be consid
ered, would have to be turned away and
prohibited until the blockade waa rained. '
Acting under cable Instructions ' from
their respective governments, Herr .von
Holleben, th German ambassador, and Sir'
Michael Herbert, th Brltlah ambassador,
today preaented to the Stat department
official thank4 for the servloes rendered by
Bowen, securing th release of Oerman and
British subjects arretted by President
Both diplomats discussed the Venesuelan
situation with Secretary Hay, who offered
to keep th embassies Informed of any news
from Caracaa. 1 Thlt Information la being
cabled at one to th governments at Ber
lin and London, who, U la underestood, ar
securing th bulk of their Venezuelan In
formation from Washington.
Mr. Pulldo, Venezuelan charge d'affaires,
has received no confirmation of th sinking
of the Venezuelan gunboats and said today:
I confea I am unable to see what foreign
countries mean by sinking my country's
little gunboat, wnicn are scarcely more
than yachts compared to the foreign men-
ot-war. I do not understand It, for the rea
son that assurance have been given only
In the laat day or two that the blockade
established waa to be a peace blockade. I
regard th sinking of the gunboats as abso
lutely unwarranted. It will foe. found that
th situation baa been, gravely complicated

STATEHOOD BILL GOES OVER TO MONDAY
Hansera Have It tbat Plea Ar Laid
to Kill Measare by Art fat Ofc
straetlom, Tha Alio 'last
Time to Tarm Votes.
WASHINOQN, Defl. 11. Th senate late
thla afternoon passed, with several amend
ments, the bill fixing the compensation of
the anthracite coal strike commission, and
it Dow goes to conference.' The sentiment
of the senate we strongly In favor of al
lowing members of th commission who are
not in the civil or military vervlce lump
sum for their service, and after considera
ble debate $4,000 was settled upon at the
proper amount, thus taking th matter out
of the hands of the president.
' Several other amendments were adopted
fixing the 'expenses ef commissioners and
the assistant recorders at $10 per day in
stead of $15, and leaving the question of
salary for the assistant recorder and em
ployes to ths commission. Th name of
the commission was Changed to "anthracite
coal ttrike arbitration." . ....
An amendment offered by Mr. Daniel
(Va.) to prohibit officers of the government
from serving on commissions or performing
duties other thsn called for by law pro
voked a lengthy discussion, but was finally
, , Will Kill Bill By Delay.
At t o'clock th statehood bill came up
and there was a brisk exchange between
Mr. Quay (Pa.), who favors the omnibus
bill, and senators who oppose It. Mr. Quay
and Mr. Bate (Tenn.) aald they were ready
to vote. Mr. Beveridge (ind), Mr. Lodge
(Mass.), Mr. Hale (Me.) and others pro
tested against pressing the bill to toon
after It waa reported and It went over un
til Monday. '
The air wat full of rumors concerning
the statehood bill, which, It was said, wat
to be defeated, not" by ' votes, but by ob
struction; the vote being postponed from
day to day ' until one by one all the vote
for tbe omnibus bill were picked 'off.
Mr. Quay wanted it understood that the
bill would retain Its place as tbe unfinished
business, and President Frye said : ' "The
bill remains the unfinished business! If It It
in the power of the chair to keep It there,
and the chair think it is."
The senate then resumed consideration
of the coal strike commission bill.
Mr. Daniel (Va.) precipitated lively de
bate by offering an amendment' prohibiting
the further assignment of officers and em
ployes of the United States or'' senators
and representatives on 'any commission.
He did not criticise the president; on tho
contrary, he commended him, but ' he ar
gued that there It an abundance of Intel
lect, learning and wisdom among the peo
ple of the country outside of the govern
ment service which could be drawn upon.
Mr. Piatt (Conn.) expressed the opinion
that it would be unwise to tie the hands
of the president to that In a great emer
gency he could not select the one man
deemed most fit for appointment and In
quired of Mr. Tillman (S. C), who fa
vored the Daniel amendment, If It were
not probable, If the amendment was
adopted, that Judge Gray would withdraw
from the commission.
"Surely," was Mr. Tillman's response.'
Mr. Spooner (Wit.) said it was not'
new thing for Judges to- be arbitrators, nor
It It considered Injudicial.
Mr. Allison and Mr, Hoar appealed to
Mr. Daniel td ' withdraw bis amendment
with the view of offering' It at some other
time when It could have better attention.
Mr. Daniel finally consented and the bill
At 6 o'clock the senate held a brief ex
ecutive session and adjourned.

SENATOR. QRYOEN. ON TRUSTS
Consider It Wis o Move alertly la
' aabjeet. i
WASHINGTON, Dc. 11. Th feature of
President Roosevelt's tneasag to congress
which gave rise to the moat oomment were
those relating to trusts and the tariff. In
connection with the conaervatlv ion .of
tba president's message, th comment of
Sunator John F. Dryden of New Jersey on
thla tubJot are .of importance on account
of hi large experience In corporation mat
ters, and oecaus he It a representative lo
th aenat of th tat ra which most of
th great corporations have been chartered,
"The subject Is a of such magnitude,
one upon which - any actiea y congress
may effect, so many Interest . that .'ar
vital to ths prosperity of th country," Mr.
Dryden said, "that' nothing" should be done
without the most careful consideration.
"In th' first place. It should b rer
talued what the evils In th, present system
sre, and, la th aecond place. It should b,
ascertained what ar the remedies for tb
vlla. I think that this would b much
bttr than I maka hast to provide a
remedy and thea try to find tome vil that
th rvmedr could b mado to fit.
"Th shortness of the present session
wlli probablv make it Impossible to do
much. It Is4very easy.-to generalize, and
there has been great deal of generaliza
tion as to the evils of large corporations
and as to tbe remedies which should be ap
plied, but there Is not yet any clearly de
fined and generally accepted opinion as to
the nature of th evilt or of th remedies
to be applied.
"If w study the question historically
from th time when our ancestors emerged
from a state of feudalism, I think we will
find that we have little to complain of In
present conditions. No legislator of the
present day would think for a moment of
voting foT charters granting exclusive and
monopolistic privileges such as were form
erly granted, not only- by the English
Parliament, but by our own congress and
by our atate legislatures.
"No such monopolies are granted now.
The charter of tbe United States 8teel Cor
poration glvea it no exclusi ?s right. It has
competitors and will continue to have them.
Its stock is sold in the open market, and
any man with $100 or $500 or $1,000 can buy
it and become a partner In Ita profits. I
do not know that It is an evil if great
corporation Is able to manufacture so
economically as to be able to sell cheaply
to our own people and to foreign natlofis.
'We are now in a state of transition; and
it it Inevitable that the changes going on
should hurt some Individuals, Just as the
transition from stage coaches to railroads
hurt Indlvldiials, but we should be careful
lest in trying to remedy tome evil which
haa not yet been clearly defined we may

Mr. Hinshaw had a talk . to-day with
Chairman Sherman of tne Indian affairs
committee of the house in relation to tbe
payment of money, with accrued Interest
to the Otoe Indians. Mr. Sherman stated
that he thought the time was not propittout
for such a payment at this time, in view
of the Inability of the Indians to take care
