Use It in the v Venezuela Contrpyeisy Or Abandon It as a Scarecrow Wliich Has Ceased to Frighten Such the Opinion of Senator Da vis as Expressed in an Interview ST PAUL Got Davis left ou an evening train for the East where he will remain some time as the guasb of Senator Hoar On Oct 23 Senator Davis will address the Historical and Antiquarian Society of Worcester at its annual meeting on 4 The Formation of Nfw Cominon in the Northwest The ad dress will be based largely on the per sonalobservations of the senator of the growth of the Northwest Before leaving the senator in an in terview said One Fact Should Ho Remembered The Monroe doctrine has recently been brought into general considera tion said Senator Davis by aggres sive acts of Great Britain upon the re publics of Venezuela and Nicaragua It was declared by President Monroe in his annual message in 1823 It did not originate from any cause then opera tive within this hemispere It was pro voked by threats of European aggression against the Spanish American republics This fact should always be borne in miud in construing that famous declara tion The senator then explained briefly the causes leading up to the enunciation of the doctrine and quoted the principal declaration of the message of president Monroe in which his famous was enunciated The Aggressions of Great Britain The recent affair at Corinto was touched upon and then the present Venezuelan trouble The aggressions of Great Britain upon Venezuela have been continuously perpetrated for nearly 50 years They have been so flagrant imperious and uncompromising that diplomatic rela tions have not existed between those countries since 1887 There was little or noquestiou about the boundry line previous to 1840 About that time Great Britain began to assert extended claims and to follow up the assertions by gradual occupancy until at present she claims territory to the westward of the original bouudry for several hundred miles and nearly to the south or east bank of the Orinoco river at its mouth The two nations have been disputing as to the boundry fpi more than bO years and during nearly every year of the contention Great Britain has changed and enlarged her claims until now she stands upon Her Present Exorbitant Demand of about twothirds of Venezuela south and east of the Orinoco It reduces the area of Venezuela by at least 70000 square miles Venezuela powerless to resist has over and over again offered to submit thequestion1 The United States has requested Great Britain to consent to settle the question in tliat way The same request has been made by Spain and by 10 of the Spanish American republics Great Britain has repeatedly refused and has continued her encroachments Venezuela is our nearest neighbor in South America Its capital is six days journey from Washington The mouth of the Orinoco liver is about six days voyage by steamship from New York Our commercial relations with Venez uela are most encouraging and are in creasing in value Her coast fronts towards the Gulf of Mexico Jamaica the Windward islands and the outlet of the Nicaragua canal Intervene or Abandon the Doctrine Considering this situation and the other facts to which I have adverted in relation to the seizure said the senator I say most confidently that the United States ought to intervene in the busi ness or formally abandon the Monroe doctrine as a scarecrow which will no longer frighten It will be asked in what manner should tliis government assert these principles in cases where their infrac tion is deemed by it as dangerous to our peace and safety I answer by all means within our power exhausting first the resources of peace and these failing an appeal to force Does Not Apprehend Trouble I do nob apprehend any war with England arising out of existing condi tions or out of anything which we can forsee She is a prudent nation with all her power She has given in the Dominion of Canada a hostage of peace to the United States far outvaluing the utmost tha she can hope to obtain or inflict by war I think that firm re monstrance and an attitude so unyield ing that it will demonstrate cer tainty of warlike action as the last extremity will repress aggression assert our dignity secure our safety and vin dicate our principles Iowa Meet BURLINQTON la Oct Iowa Baptist state convention commenced its 64th annual

Have been nominated he said cannot be induced to withdraw nor would the conventions which nominated them ever sanction their withdrawal The bosses of the State Democracy may be able to sot up and knock down candidates at will but you cant do any such a thing in Tam many Hall When aman wins a nom ination in Tammany Hall he is entitled to it and nothing can it away from him We think we can win in the dis puted districts The Grace people are already discredited with the voters No Democrat is going to vote for a State Democracy or assembly or senatorial candidate when he knows that the vote is going to help elect a Republican United States senator Hill Anxioxis for Harmony Senator Hill is anxious to bring about harmony but he evidently does not quite understand the situation in New York Tammany cannot give way to an organization that has been stab bing the Democratic party in the back for years If the State Democracyis really anxious to secure a Democratic majority in the nest assembly and sen ate let them withdraw all their candi dates and turn in and support the regu lar Democratic nominees We will guarantee to them whatever considera tion in the way of patronage the
