Strengthening Outposts in
PRIVATE DISPATCHES TELL THIS
THE ARBITRATION MOVEMENT
It Is Dally Growing In Favor Among
All Classes In Great Britain
Chicago, Jan. 10. A special to the
Journal from Washington says : "The
report that the British are strengthening
their outposts in Venezuela and advanc
ing into Venezuela is true. I have my
eelf received today a private dispatch
from there corroborating it."
So said Congressman Livingston, of
Georgia, this afternoon.
He added : "I cannot show you the
dispatch ; it is private. You can, how-
ever, rely on it. I called on the Ven
ezuelan minister this morning and asked
him to use his influence with Creepo to
keep tack the Venezuelan troops.
Should they advance it would precipi-
' tate the conflict at once. That would
render the Venezuela commission use
leas. We would be compelled to back
up Venezuela, and we would be plunged
into war at once."
" This Sentiment Dally Growing in Great
London, Jan. 10. The movement in
favor of arbitrating the Venezuela ques
tion with the United States is growing
day by day. The Westminister Gazette,
after having interviewed statesmen of all
parties, bankers and others, says this
. afternoon :
"Everywhere there were enthsiastic
expressions in favor of the proposal to
establish a permanent court of arbitra
tion." From diplomats who have bad recent
interviews with the foreign office, the
Associated PreBS learns that there is a
decided change of sentiment there. The
unbending antagonism to arbitration of
the Venezuela boundary dispute, first
shown in high circles, has almost com
pletely disappeared and matters look
much more satisfactory than they have
at any time since the dispute com
It is eerui-officially stated today that
no such movement of British forces to
ward the boundary or in the neighbor
hood of the disputed territory in Vene
zuela, as indicated in the dispatch from
Caracas, via Nicaragua, has been con
templated by Great Britain, and no ad
dition has been made to th.e email force
stationed for some time in the Uruan
district. Regarding the attitude of Ven
ezuela, it is added, that there is no reas
on to suppose hostile action upon her
part is intended.
BOND SYNDICATE SHAKEN.
Withdrawal of tbe Chemical National
Bank From it.
B Chicago, Jan. 10. A Bpecial from New
York says :
The Morgan bond syndicate has at
last been shaken by the withdrawal from
it of the Chemical National bank. It Is
understood that the amount of the
bank's subscripton was $3,000,000. G.
T. Williams, president of the bank,
"Our subscription simply represented
those of our depositors, and we do not
want to tie them up in the uncertainties
of the syndicate. We do not wish to
stand in the way of any public desire for
the euccess of a popular loan."
It Is reported that the City National
and possibly the United States Trust
Company and the Hanover National will
follow the lead of the Chemical. The
City National has $10,000,000 gold in its
vaults and its subscription was reported
as $5,000,000. The subscriptions of the
Hanover National and the United States
Trust Company were each about $2,000,
000. .. . . .
The lead of the Chemical National is
considered an indication that the selling
of the bonds directly to the public will
be a success. .

' TROUBLE IS FEARED.
Oklahoma's Schools Must Be Opened to
Both Black and White.
Perry, O. T., Jan. 12. Conservative
people of thie place fear trouble tomor
row between the white and black races.
According to the decision of the court,
the schools were opened for admission of
all races and color. The .fight has been
going on for three' months. The board
voted a few days ago to suspend schools,
but the colored people sued out a writ of
mandamus, compelling the board to open
them again. This was supported by
people who prefered mixed schools to
none, so the board was compelled to re
consider its action, and tomorrow the
public schools of the city will contain
both whites and blacks. Several white
men declare they will keep their child
ren from school ; nor will they send them
where colored children attend. Colored
people are firm, and trouble is ex
pected. Moving to Rnfns.
Ever since the flood of 1894, which al
most obliterated the town of Grants,
there has been a three-cornered rivalry
for the chief town of Sherman county
touching the railroad. When the
waters receded and dry land appeared,
some patriotic citizens began the work
of re-building ; others, who figured out
a better location, chose Murray Springs
as the site of a new town, while the re
mainder pinned their faith to Rufus.
All three of these towns line the railroad
within the space of two miles, and
each one has set no claims to be the
shipping point of Sherman county.
The struggle proves to be unequal and
Mr. R. C. Wallis, who was in The Dalles
today, informs us that the buildings at
Murray Springs are to be removed to
Rufus. Mr. Wallis has the contract for
moving the large general merchandise
store of J. W. Smith, and the stable of
George Crossfield and the McDonald
Hotel are to take up their beds, so to
speak, and walk. Rufus has already be
come the largest of the towns, and with
the consolidation of Murray Springs will
be placed in the lead. Of the three sites
thatof Murray Springs is the pleasant
estfora town, but the channel of trade
has been diverted elsewhere, and the
people must go to meet it. The start
ing of the distillery again . will give
Grants a ' boom and the vigor of the
contest between Seattle and Tacoma

PREPARING FOR SPRING
The Assembling of British
Fleets for Service.
CABINET MEETING IN LONDON
The Ministers Had to Decide Several
Questions of Vital Importance
. to the British Empire.
London, Jan. 11. In view of the as
sembling of British fleets for active ser
vice, and the many clouds hovering over
the horizon of politics, the cabinet meet
ing today is entitled to rank as one of
the most momentous in the history of
Great Britain. The ministers had to de
cide several questions of vital importance
to the British empire, including the
Transvaal, Armenia and .Venezuela dif
ficulties, and Great Britain's position
toward the old European powers. It is
a striking fact that although the present
cabinet is one of the largest on record, it
is unanimous upon all the leading ques
tions under discussion.
The latest advices from the Transvaal
would seem, on their face, to indicate
that the situation is in no way as hope
ful as it was several days ago, in spite of
official statements to the contary, and it
is believed that the cabinet is consider
ing most uulooked-for demands upon the
part of President Kr.uger, demands
which it is estimated Great Britain can
not possibly concede.
On the stock exchange today there
were rumors that the government in
quiry will lead to the startling revelation
that the whole plot was hatched by a
group of financiers in London. In addi
tion, the statement is made by a finan
cial paper that Barney Barnato, the so
called "Kaffir King," who has consider
able holding in Delagoa bay, has offered
to sell the same to the British govern
ment, which is considering the matter,
This may explain the reported purchase
of Delaeoa bay from Portugal by the
government of Great Britain.
The war feeling against Germany has
greatly subsided, and the issue of the
trouble is freely described as a rebuff for
Emperor William, inasmuch as the Ger
man papers have changed their tone,
and the papers printing what was re
garded as inspired articles and what
first threatened Great Britain, are now
distinctly climbing down.
Another feature of the situation is the
feeling that France, although she would
perhaps like to see Great Britain serious
ly injured, would never allow Germany
to win, but would seek a pretext, while
Germany was crippled, to secure revenge
According to the Westminster Ga
zette, Germany's recent attitude on the
Armenian question has alienated Great
Britain and led to the reapproachment
of the latter country to France, and the
Marquis of Salisbury, It asserts, sug
gested to the powers an international
agreement by wbich Russia was to be
entrusted with the pacification of Arme
nia. France and Italy, it is added, were
willing, but the proposition collapsed
through the opposition of Germany.
Discussing the Transvaal situation,
the Westminster Gazette regards the al
leged demands of the Boers for compen
sation with skepticism, and adds:
'.It is a trivial question, almost as in
significant as the ownership of a swamp
on either side of the Schomberek line.
Meanwhile, preparations for war are
being actively pushed by Great Britain,
although little is heard from Germany
on the same subject. Three thousand of
Lee-Mittford rifles have been received at
Chatham for the warships, which are be
ing commissioned there to form a part
of the flying squadron, and the. supplies
of cartridges, shells, provisions and other
warlike supplies are being added to in
all quarters every hour.
- NO BOUNDARY DISPUTE.
Only Most Pleasant Relations Between
Costa Rica and Nicaragua.
Washington, Jan. 12. Mr. Calve, the
charge d'affaires of Costa Rica, said to
day that the news from Managua, Nic
aragua, about a boundary dispute with
Costa Rice was not corect, adding :
"There is not any question about
boundaries. It is settled by the award
of the president of the United States, as
arbitrator. What remains to be done is
to mark out a boundary line materially.
To this end, Costa Rica sent a commis
sion into the field and retained it there a
year. Thia commission - made a careful
survey of the line. Although Nicaragua
was bovnd by the terms of the treaty be
tween the two countries to form a simi
lar commission and co-operate with that
of Costa Rica, it did not do so, and for
this reason the contention is still unset
tled in this respect."
. Pendleton Postmaster Held Up:
Pendleton, Or. Jan. 13. Postmaster
Johnson was held up by a masked rob
ber at 7:15 o'clock tonight, and, at the
point of a revolver, compelled to hand
out about $600 of postal and money-ord
er funds. The robbery was evidently
committed by a man who was well ac
quainted wiih the postofScp, its cur-
roundings and the habits of the em
ployes. Postmaster Johnson's story of
the affair is as follows :
"At 7:15 o'clock, after my clerks bad
gone home and when I was alone in -the
office counting money, I beard a rap on
the office door and some one called out,
'Johnson, give me my mail ; I am in an
awful hurry.' I opened the door and
was confronted by a man, who, thrust
ing a revovler in my face, said:
want your money.' He compelled me to
walk to my desk, on which about $250
was stacked up. He made me take the
government money sack and put the
coin into it. 'That is all I have,' I said
"Well, then, we will look in the safe,'
he responded. Telling me to hurry up
be flourished the gun in my face and
made me empty the postal and money
order funds into the sack. When be was
satisfied there was no more money, he
said, 'I will go out the back door.' He
compelled me to lead the way and open
the door, I noticed his revolver was
pointed towards the ground, and I at
once seized it with my left hand and
grabed him with my right. While we
wero struggling the gun went off, and
the ball passed through my left hand.
then trippled over a mail sack and he
ran out of the door."
Johnson describes the man as ot me
dium height and built, and about 150
pounds in weight. He wore a full black
beared, evidently false. Over his face
was a handkerchief, with eyeholes in it
Hib voice was peculiar and Johnson says
he would recognize him by his manner
of talking. Tonight the sheriff and sev
eral posses are scouring the country for
the robber. Johnson's wound' is not
serious, although very painful. The
ball passed through the fleshy part of
Geo. W. Jenkins, editor of the Santa
Maria "Times," Cal., in speaking of the
various ailments of children said
"When my children have croup there is
only one patent medicine I ever use, and
inac is Chamberlain's Cough Remedy
It possesses some medical properties
that relieve the little sufferers immedi
ately. It is, in my opinion, the best
cough medicine in the market." If this
remedy is freely given as soon as the
croup cough appears it will prevent' the
attack. It is also an ideal remedy for
whooping cough. There is no danger in
giving it to children, as it contains noth
iog injurious. For sale by Blakeley &

' London, San. 13. It was learned this
afternoon that the cabinet council Sat
urday considered the question of re-establishing
diplomatic relations with
Venezuela, but no definite conclusion
was arrived at.

AN IMPORTANT DISCOVERY.
It Shows That England Has Recognized
the Monroe Doctrine.
Washington Jan. 13. Public opinion
in Great Britain has changed in the
most wonderful manner since the Mon
roe doctrine was first promulgated. An
unexpected discovery in the old files in
the house of representatives has given to
the state department a valuable state
paper, with which Lord Salisbury'sclaim
that the Monroe doctrine has never been
recognized by England, will be complete
In going over the old records Walter
H, French, the file clerk of the house,
discovered a collection of clippings from
English papers, all bearing on the mess
age of President Monroe, in "which he
gave to the world the famous document
which bears bis name. The message
was sent on the opening of congress, the
first Monday iu December, 1823. The
British papers without exception, com
mented on the message in the moBt fav
orable terms. France was then contem
plating conquest in South America and
Great Britain was prompt to seize on
the Monroe message as a notice to con
tinental nations that conquest in Amer
ica meant war with the United States.
Mr. French's discovery has been copied
and sent to Secretery Olney. Members
o' the foreign affairs, committee say that
Mr. French's discovery is the most im
portant made in the matter, as it pre
sents contemporary evidence of the fact,
which Great Britain has since forgotten,
that at the time President Monroe's
message was delivered it was accepted,
and even welcomed as sound doctrine by
the people of England. More than that,
the newspapers then distinctly pledged
Great Britain to aid in the enforcement
of the Monroe doctrine.
