The regular meeting of the Freeborn county teachers Assenat Ion was held in the ease in Lily room of the Albert Lea High school saturday i toot tuber 7th. At i p. In. That the teachers fully appreciate these meetings was plainly shown by the Large attendance Ami dose attention. County superintendent Olsen opened the session by a Short pleasant Turkon the advancement of the educational interests in the City of All it Ert Lea and the advantages of t he excellent appoint went. Of the h High school. He urged the teachers to use their influence to secure bet ter and morn convenient buildings for the country schools. People who Are enterprising and economical. In remarked Are willing to upend Money Only when they see the net Aksit of doing in. The citizens of a hot Lea certainly Haven High appreciation of the value of school buildings of the most approved pattern and. As the county superintendent affirmed every Rte Toad District in the county could have As Good build bugs in pro firtion to its needs As the City of allx it Lea with a taxation less in proportion than that levied in said City. A a one District a he continued. A has taken a step in Advance and i Hope that others will follow. A City superintendent w. J. Schmitz could not is present during the latter smrt of the meeting. Sarah Burke win was first to the program kindly gave Way to let him present his subject a How t an the work of the country schools in made to articulate in till that of the Albert Lea school a in his Happy Way. Or. Schmitz out lined the work Laid out for the a City and also presented some methods used to accomplish that work in viewing the Quot country schools he Drew largely from his experience us a country Seho Al teacher dwelling upon the work to be accomplished in the country and setting Forth very clearly the necessity of having the Quot work in the Quot country and tin a Sci Tyr soil Mil some tit the City teachers were present and entered heartily int the general discussions. The subject a How an the state t ours of study be Dap cd to the common school a was resumed in Las Sarah t. Burk and As she concluded her subject she was much applauded. The subject seemed to increase in interest As she advanced and she held the undivided attention of the teachers. The general discussion which Fob Lowed was Short Ami spirited there was a Little a a hitch in regard to Quot language work Ami a grammar a hut most of the teachers agreed with miss Burke that the study of Quot grammar should not be left from the course of study and that it should not in commenced later than the fourth Grade. As it was so generally conceded during these discussions that the state i Sago for $1 a committee of five teachers to revise the state course of study and of which committee lie shall be chairman. It should in noted that there May be no meeting of the association next month of the executive committee think it advisable to meet. The president will Issue a Call. Grant c. Lit Tco Hinson Hec y.

Miss la tort the assistant teacher us after the in Bull it or late to Tho stand taken by great Trita n of the question of arbitrating the Venezuela Boundary matter the president t a hold the doctrine. Washington dec. presi Dent s message to Congress on the a Monroe doctrine will doubtless become one of the historic state pullers entering around Tho famous pronoun Cimmento of president Monroe. Accompanying the message was lord Salisbury a reply to Secretary Olney note on the venezuelan Boundary dispute. After reciting the facts leading up to the final refusal of lord Salisbury to arbitrate the Boundary question the president says in our a to pursue is Plain. The course to be pursued by this government in View of the present condition does not appear to admit of serious doubts. Having Laboured faithfully for Many years to induce great Britain to submit this dispute to impartial arbitration and having now been finally apprised of her refusal to do so nothing remains hut to accept the situation to recognize its Plain requirements and Deal with it accordingly. Great Britain a present proposition has never thus far been regarded As admissible by Venezuela though any adjustment of the Boundary line which that country May deem for her advantage Aud May enter into of Lier own free will cannot of course be objected to by Tho United states. A i a Lur a comm Quinn. Assuming however that the attitude of Venezuela remains unchanged the dispute has now reached such a stage As to make it incumbent on the United states to take measures to determine with Sutti event certainty for its justification what is the the divisional line Between the Republic of Venezuela and British Guiana. The inquiry to that end should of course be conducted carefully and judicially and due weight should be Given to All available evidence records and facts in support of the claim of both parties. In order that such a examination should be prosecuted in a thorough and satisfactory manner i suggest that the Congress make an adequate appropriation for the expenses of a commission to be appointed by the executive who shall make the necessary investigation Aud Rei it Ort upon the matter with the least j sensible delay. When such a report is made and accepted it will in my opinion be the duty of the United states to resist by every Means Iii its Power As a wilful upon its rights and interests the appropriation by great Britain of any lands or the exercise of governmental jurisdiction Over Auy territory which after investigation we have determined of right belongs to Venezuela. Fully alive to the on Seq Lien it it. In making these recommendations j am fully alive to the responsibility incurred and keenly realize All the consequences that May follow. I am nevertheless firm in my conviction that while it is a grievous thing to contemplate the two Grout English speaking Peoples of the world As being otherwise than Friendly competitors in the Onward March of civilization and strenuous Ami worthy rivals in All of the urts of peace there is no calamity which a great nation can invite which equals that which follows a supine submission to wrong Aud injustice and the consequent loss of National self respect and Honor beneath which is shielded and defended a Peoples safety and greatness.

Nowhere was then a voice lifted Iii diluent from the doctrine so firmly Laid Down by the president but on the contrary there was ail outburst of Bitt riot to feeling that must have been highly Gratifying to the chief executive. In the dignified United states Senate a body that rarely exhibits emotion on any cocas Umi there was witnessed the unparalleled Swiec Facie of handclaps my Aud applause which was the spontaneous expression of the approval of almost every senator without regard to Hairty up the streets the message was discussed and old veterans of the lat e War talked of what they were prepared again to undertake at the Call of their country.

The matter of course was of the greatest interest in diplomatic circles Aud the general impression on a sober second consideration of the notes was that the matter hat not reached a stage where War is imminent Aud that the hint of great Britain a purpose to reopen negotiations with Venezuela looking to settlement of the dispute Between themselves perhaps May la regarded As the indication of How the whole matter will end. The Sena a ors Are patriotic. Never i warlike pleasure of a a their appearance in the i per Bonze. Washington Dee. 30. Senate shared the general sentiment of Bellig i Ereney prevalent and from the outset of the session the measures proposed breathed a spirit of patriotism and of preparation for Auy emergency that might arise concerning Venezuela. The first Bill introduced was that of or. C handler of new Hampshire providing for an appropriation of $100, j too for a heavy increase in the National armament. This was quickly followed by a proposition authorizing the Secretary of War to Purchase a lab device of heavy Battery and for a report on the i feasibility of equipping for service the old snip Constitution. Or. Hill of new York added to the suggestions of defense by asking immediate consideration of a Bill making sex confederates eligible to service in the army and Navy. No decks Lex action taken. Aside from these Steps inaugurating legislation the Day passed without decisive action on the Venezuela question. The first investigation of the session was started by the passage of or. Callas Long pending Resolution for an inquiry into alleged corporate influences operating in the election of United states senators and representatives As a further expression on the subject of British encroachments the Senate agreed to a Resolution introduced by or. Davis calling on the president for information As to British or Canadian occupation military or civil of any part of the United states territory of Alaska. Throughout Tho Day the Senate galleries wire crowded beyond their capacity showing the keen Public interest in anticipated developments on the British venezuelan question. The House takes action. Authorize the Preal Dent to appoint com Nuzz Ion. Washington dec. 30. Days session of the House did not last an hour but it sufficed for the passage of a Bill authorizing the president to appoint a commission to investigate the venezuelan Boundary and appropriating $100, he for the expenses of the commission. The Bill which carries into effect the recommendations of the presidents message was prepared by or. Hitt rep., ill Sand met the approval of speaker Reed. Although several Republican leaders expressed themselves Iii conversation As favouring the reference of the message to the committee on foreign affairs for a report or. Boutelle of main was the Only one who voiced the View on the floor. Speeches for the Bill were made by or. Hilt and or. Crisp and attempted by other members who could not secure recount Ion. There was no vote against it and considerable applause was Given to the patriotic references in the speeches.

Strung probability that Ilia by y will not pre. Stutter. Washington Dee 30 a president Cleveland had Many callers during the Day mostly senators and representatives who came to congratulate him upon the attitude he had assumed ii his message. The telegrams which lie had received commending ins course were supplemented by letters coming through the mails. Secretary Olney also had his share of callers. Although there was no suggestion of any abatement of our claims and indeed it is generally recognized that by announcing his determination to hold great Britain outside of the Boundary to be defined by our own commission the president has left no Avenue for Retreat it is still confidently believed Here that the difficulty can Aud will be settled peaceably and Wuu Honor to All in Olio of Iorii to. This belief is based upon the expectation that great Britain As lord Salisbury indicated in his last note will re establish diplomatic relations with Venezuela. As the revolution there has be Usu led and the International Jiecai a demanded As a condition to a resumption of venezuelan negotiation is restored he will treat the subject it is believed and As he practically promises in by cute in a More compliant spirit than Tho British government has exhibited heretofore in the negotiations and thus speedily reach an arrangement satisfactory to great Britain Aud Venezuela and so us a natural result acceptable to the a listed stares.
