Washington, Jan. 13. Today lieini;
the second Monday of the month, was,
under tho rules, set aside lor the consid
eration of business relating to the Dis
trict of Columbia. Beforo Chairman
Babcock claimed tho day, Morse pre-
sented the following resolution for refer
ence to the committee on foreign affairs:
"Whereas, The most mournful tragedy
of tho 10th century baa been and is now
being onacted under the apparent sanc
tion of tho sultan of Turkey, .by which
hundreds of thousands of Armenians aro
beins ruthlessly slaughtered in cold
blood ; women are being driven in cap
tivity worse than death, and (lie inhab
itants who have fled to the rnountaius
are dying of cold and staryation, and
"Whereas, Tho blood of these mar
tyred dead cry to heaven for justice ;
"Resolved, That the committee on
foreign affairs consider the expediency of
reporting forthwith some expression by
this government in denunciation of these
atrocities, and if they find we as a na
tion are powerless to act, that we invoke
the co-operation of the allied powers to
wipe tho Turkish government off the
face of the earth and secure the freedom
and independence oi Armenia."
Tho resolution was referred.
The house then entered upon the con
sideration of district business. Two un
important bills were reported, nfter
which the house went into a committee
of tho whole for consideration of the pen
sion appropriation bill.
An Important Discovery.
Washington, Jan. 13. Public opinion
in Great Britain basclianged in the
moat wonderful manner since the Mon
roe doctrine was first'promulgated. An
unexpected discovery in the old filc3 in
the house of 'representatives has given
to the state department a valuable state
paper, with which Lord Salisbury's
claim that the Monrcc doctrine has
never been recognized by England, will
be completely upset.
In going over tho" old records Walter
H. French, the file clerk of the house,
discovered a collection of clippings from
English papers, all beariug on the mes-
sage-of President Monroe, in whicii he
gave to the world the famous doctrice
which bears hb name. The message
was Senfon the ojv.nin!: of ggrerw-p. hc
drst Monday" in December, 1S23. The
British papers without exception, com
mented on the message in the most fa
vorable terms. France was then con
templating lonquest in outh America
and Great Britian was prompt to seize
on the Monroe message as a notice to
continental nations that conquest in
America meant war witii the United
Mr. Frenche's discovery has been
copied and sent to retary Olney.
Members of the foreign affairs committee
say that Mr. Frenche's discovery is the
most important made in the matter, as
it presents contemporary evidence of tiie
fact, which Great Britain lias since for
gotten, that at the time President Mon
roe's message was delivered it was ac
cepted, and even welcomed as sound
doctrine bv the people of England.
More than that, the newspapers then
distinctly pledged Great Britain to aid
in the enforcement of the Monroe doc
trine. Break In the Clouds.
London, Jan. 13. It was learned this
afternoon tiiat the cabinet council Sat
urday considered the question of re-establishing
diplomatic relations with
Venezula, but no definite conclusion
was arrived at.
The Westminster Gazette this after
noon, touching upon the misunderstand
ing between Great Britian and the
United States, says it sees a distinct
break in the clouds, and hopes a settle
ment satisfactory to Great Britian and
the United States will be effected with
Venezuela direct, and intimates that the
Brazilian minister is closely identified
with the latest proposed solution of this
Torpcdos Being Planted.
Chicago, Jan 13. A sjwcial from
Torpedoes are beiug planted in the
harbor of Havana and heavy siego guns
are being placed in position. This was
the private information received by the
Cuban junta and given out by Senor
Ruben3last night. As tho insurgents
have not a ship afloat, the iuferenco is
irresistable that Spain expects inteifer-
ence by tho United Statos, and is prepar
ing to defend tho capital from an attack
by tea. Action by the United States
looking to tho recognition of the bolligor
ency ia expected.
It is stated on apparently good author
ity that President Cleveland's Venezuela
message was a double-barreled affair,
which hit Salisbury in two places at tho
same time. Acconlihg to (ho secret
agents of tho Cuban?, Spain is at the end
of her resourcoB, aud will have to sus
pend Bpecio payments entirely within
tho next 30 days. With bankruptcy
staring her in tho face, Spain, it is said,
made a proposition to sell tho island of
Cuba to Great Britain. Lord Salisbury,
it is intimated, according to Cuban
authority, sounded tho United States on
the subject, and the reply was President
Cleveland's vigorous enunciation of tho
The senate comrnitte on foreigu rela
tions has bec.u holding several confer
ences of lato. Senator Davis of Minne
sota, at the head of aBub-commitleo hay
ing the matter in charge, is now drawing
up a formal definition of the Monroe doc
trine, which expands the original decla
ration and makes it clear ns the formal
doctrine of the American congress.
Those who claim to know, gay that this
declaration is intended to meet both the
Cuban and Venezuela cases.
As the dry season ends in March, it is
now said if Spain does not succeed in
stopping the rebellion by that time the
United States will certainlv recognize the
insurgents as belligerents.
The Cuban colony is in a ferment over
rumors that recognition by the United
States is at last at band.

When the civil war opened the wealth
of this country was estimated at $16,
000,000,000. In 1S00 it had reached
$03,000,000,000, and in case of a foreign
war we should now be an undivided peo
ple. The most remarkable fact con
nected with these figures is that the
United States accumulated three times
as much wealth during the thirty years

The receipts of the American Bible

From a letter written by Rev. J. Gund
erman, of Dimondale. Mich., we are per
mitted to make this extract : "I have no
hesitation in recommending Dr. .King's
New Discovery, as the results were al
most marvelous in the case of my wife.
While I wa3 pastor of tho Baptist church
at Rives Junction she was brought down
with Pneumonia succeeding La Grippe.
Terrible paroxysms of coughing would
last hours with little interruption and it
seemed as if she could not survive them.
A friend recommended Dr. King's New
Discovery; it was quick in its work and
highly satisfactory in results." Trial
