not seeking a quarrel, but we must Insure
ourselves against a recurrence of the acta
which led ts the present situation."
The Foreign office has niRde inquiry as
to whether the United States would be will- .
Ing to guarantee the fulfillment of Venn-
suela's pledges, either at the Immediate
cessation of the present action, or pending
the award of the arbitrators. This Inquiry
resulted In a direct negative from the '
United States. j
Wlth the guarantee of the United States
the Foreign office says arbitration In the.
Venezuelan matter would be an Immediate !
probability, but with only the word of a
government, hitherto unreliable, arbitra
tion Is difficult, even on the points where
International relations admit of such a
method of settlement.

BERLIN, Dec. 16. The German govern- i

respondence with the British government
on that subject.

not to be ready for some days. The opinion

Secretary Hay Takes Hand.
WASHINGTON. Dec. 16. The Italian am
bassador today calUd at the State de
partment and advised Secretary Hay that
Italy had Joined the allies In the opera
tions tast Venezuela. He requested j
that Mr. Bowen . assume charge of the
Italian Interests in - Venezuela and the sec
retary granted this request subject to tho
approval of Venezuela.) -
Italy enters the combination on tho
same plan of abstention from territorial
seizues as Germany and Great Britain-.
The Venezuelan question occupied the at
tention of the senate in executive session
today for almost an hour.
The tone of all of the speeches, whether
by republicans or democrats, was that tho
attitude of this nation should be of watch
fulness. . There was a general agreement
that' while the means adopted by Great
Britain and Germany for tbe collection of
their debts had been strenuous, they thus
far had not infringed the Monroe doc
trine and therefore had done nothing to
which the United states could take excep
tion. Senator Bacon (Oa.), a leading minority
member of the eommlttee on foreign affairs,
aald there was no party division, as every
body would stand with tbe administration
la doing what was best for the general
good. There was no desire te control those
on whom devolved the duly of protecting
American Interests. The maintenance of
the. Monroe doctrine, ha added, devolved
on the whole people.
Senator Stewart dwelt on the bombard
meet of Puerto Cabello and said that la
ddrnt should be accepted as a warning of
what this country might expect whenever
excuse might offer.
Nt '.In '. Ura, generations," he said,
"could ws build up a navy equal to that of
Great Britain, but we can strengthen our
ooaat' farttAcatlona,' and In -view of, Vene-
soetai experience, tt behooves us to do so."

and fined $100 and costs and who Is being
confined In jail until the same Is paid,
was before the caurt today with motion
which read as follows: "I want my Judg

I assault my neighbors when a quarter of

was overruled ' he said: "Sheriff, I and
Roosevelt are Just alike. He Is a western
man; he Is a BUnter, be Is a good shot, he
Is self-educated, but be Is president and
I am prisoner." Jales Is a great hunter and
expert marksman' and It Is said he has

court came very close to passing on this
question recently In the case of VanBuren

In Its various forms and phases the
proposition to give Andrew Rosewater a
franchise to distribute electrical power
throughout the city dominated the pro
ceedings of the city council lsst evening
and made all other business appesr trivial.
The strength of Mr. Rosewater's ordi
nance was In a measure put to the test In
the vote upon an adverse report submitted
by Messrs. Haseall and Whltehorn of the
judiciary committee, and the report was
defeated by a vote of I to I. Messrs. Has

The subject of the franchise first csme up
In a communication from the Real Estste
exchange reporting Its action taken at tho
meeting of yesterday, with the proposed
amendments approved at that meeting.
This communication was placed on file and
Councilman Hasrall seized upon this op
portunity to present a petition which he
said carried 200 more names than Mr.
Rosewater's petition and in which the
council is urged to grant a franchise that
will be open to any person who wishes to
tske advantage of It.
Exchange Aaks Too Mnch.
Mr. Selby of the committee of the Real
Estate exchange wss permitted to make a
statement. In which he said that the
amendments which the exchange proposed
hsd been passed upon at a meeting of fifty
or sixty members of the body. One point
be thought had perhaps not been given tbe
careful investigation tbat It deserved and
that was ss to the 6 per cent annuity. He
though that was too Urge a percentage
and felt sure that the exchange would now
favor making It lower.
An a report of the judiciary committee on
Mr. Rosewater's ordlnanoe Councilman Has
eall, chairman of the committee, returned
the three different drafts of the ordinance
with a long communication, in which was
embodied the substance of a great deal of
the argument which he has heretofore from
time to time used against the ordinance.
This document was signed by only Haseall
and Whltehorn, Mr. Mount having been
out of the city and Messrs. Zlmman and
Lobeck refusing to cdncur in this report
Accompanying the report also were com
munications from J. F. Hanson, secretary
of the Fremont Power company, and H. E.
Babcock.prestdent of the Nebraska Central
Irrigation Company of Columbus. The re
port closed with the recommendation that
the ordinance be Indefinitely postponed.
After some discussion the report was put

Presents Ilediiilied Ordinance.
A new draft of Andrew Rosewater's or
dlnsnce embodying tbe amendments agreed
upon at the general committee meeting of
Monday afternoon was intrcduced by Mr.
Zlmman, who moved a suspension of the
rules for the first and second reading of
tbe ordinance, and embodied in tbU mo
tion Instruction to the clerk to have tha
Mr, Haseall Insisted that the motion be
divided, and It was at this juncture that
the discussion became most turbulent.
There wss a misunderstanding as . to
whether Mr, Zlmman's motion as adopted
by the council .carried with It tbe Instruc
tion as to the publication of the ordinance, J
and the chair ruled mat it aid not, as nn
had only put the first portion of the mo
tion as it had been stated by Mr. Zlmman.
Then Mr. Zimman contested the ruling of
the chair in a very emphatic manner, and
Mr. Haseall just as emphatically Instated
that tbe chair was right, and that the firs
part of the motion only bad been passed
President Karr enforced bis ruling, and
after the ordinance had been read a firs',
time In full and a second time by title a
motion by Mr. Zlmman to have It pub
lished was lost by a vote of 4 to 4, those in
the affirmative being Messrs. Burkley,
Lobeck, Trostler and Zimman.
On recommendation of the committee on
finance and claims, the tax depar ment of
the city was granted an appropriation of
$400 to pay for a portion of It work which
bas not yet been completed.
Raise Fire and Police Salaries.

dinances raising the salaries tn the police

make a $5 raise in the fire department on
all members except the chief and his two
assistants, and In the police department
the same raise on the detectives and pa
trolmen. - These ordinances were given their first
and second reading and laid over under
The council sustained four vetoes of the ;
mayor. Two were for the location of arc
lights, on the ground that tbe lighting fund
waa exhausted. The other was the grant
ing of a special permit to Andrew Klewlt
to erect a frame building within tne uro
limits, and the other a warrant In favor of
C. D. Woodworth for $1.325 83. which web
simply to allow a clerical error to be cor
