Englishmen Adopt a More
AS REGARDS TO VENEZUELA
Get many Ko Appears to Hold Aloof
Prom Taking Bides With Great
London, Dec. 28. The eullen weather
sleet and dampness, seems to have cast
a gloom over politics in general,- al
though the Venezuelan question, chiefly
from its financial and commercial stand
points, has been uppermost in the pub
lic mind. The tone of the press and
and general public here is now striking
ly conciliatory and everything possible
is being done to avoid a friction which
might result in further unpleasant
neES. : . .. ' . "
Although the attitude of the people In
authority and those not in authority
here is peaceful, the possibilities which
further time may bring are not by any
means overlooked. This ia shown by
the stress laid by the St. James Gazette
this afternoon upon the latest advices
from British Guiana and the commer
cial and military outlook in that col
ony. The mail news just received, from
British Guiana in which it is announced
that at a meeting of influential residents
of British ' Guiana -recently held at
Georgetown, a provisional ; board of di
rectors was appointed to be known' as
the British Chartered Company, organ
ized for the purpose of developing the
interior of British Guiana.
A sign of interest taken here in Amer
ican military matters is found in the
fact thai the Army and Navy Gazettee
today published short biographical
shetches of all the American generals.
STEAMER BTKAtHNEflS LIBELED
Management of the Rescuing Tug; Asks
8150,000 for Its Services.
Poet Townsend, Dec. 28. Jnst as the
Strathnevis was leaving Port Townsend
the United States marshal arrived from
Seattle and libeled the vessel in behalf
of the management of the rescuing
steamer Mineola, of the corporation con
trolled by the Southern Pacific Railroad
Company. The libel was issued out of
the district court of Seattle and is said
-to be $150,000. An important point in
this matter is now under discussion be
tween interested parties relative to the
the disposition of salvage when recov
ered. The Canadian Pacific Steamship
Company wants a slice of the salvage
and will ask for the modest sum of $250,
000, a third of the value of the vessel
and cargo. 1
On tne Asiatic Station.
Washington, Dec. -29. An order has
been sent to the admiral commanding
the Asiatic station detaching the Petrel
from his squadron and directing that she
proceed to San Francisco. Arriving
there, she will be put out of commission
for an overhauling. Her relief, the Bos
ton, is now at Mare island navy yard.
She has been put in first-class condition,
and will 6tart on her long voyage across
the Pacific, in a day or two. The Petrel
will not await her arrival, but will start
for home as soon as she can be prepared
for the trip. It ia the evident policy of
the administration to maintain a strong
fleet on the Asiatic station until the dis
appearance .of all signs of further trouble
among the countries of the Orient.
Venezuela -Shows tier Spunk.
New Yoek, Dec. '28. A dispatch to
the World from Venezuela says :
"Trouble seems ' inevitable. . The "ex
citement in the first outburst of enthus
iasm has given place to a determination
to fight. If necessary,- Venezuela could
be ready for a battle tomorrow. The
government has received important cable
dispatches from the Venezuela minister
at Washington. -A conference beeween
the president and cabinet was held im
mediately. NEW YORK'S EXCISE Liff'S.
Saloonkeepers Taking the Changed
. Order as a Matter of Course.
New Yobk, Dec. 29. The police re
laxed in no degree their vigilance in
watching'the saloons today, in their ef
forts to prevent violations of the excise
laws. As has been the case on all - Sun
days since the crusade against Sunday
selling of Liquor began, suspected places
b-d uniformed policemen stationed at
i"'e doors, while detectives in citizens'
clothes were active in eeeking opportu
nities to gain entrance to saloons where
business was being transacted. It w 3
said today by an experienced police ser
geant that the saloonkeepers were takirg
the changed order of affairs as a matter
of course now, and that only a very few
of them, and thoBe of the cheapest class,
are making any attempt to violate the
law, and that Sunday liquor-selling, he
said, is no longer profitable. '
Geo. W. Jenkins, editor of the San r
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
that is Chamberlain's Cough .Remedy.
It posseB&es some medical properties
that relieve the little sufferers immedi
ately. It is, in my opinion, the beet
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
ing injurious. For' sale by Blakeley &

caught between a cart and a Btone and
badly bruised. Ordinarily he would
have been laid up for two or three weeks,
but ' says : "After using one bottle of
Chamberlain's Pain Balm I began to
feel better, and in three days was entire

which Chamberlain's Pain Balm po
sesses I have never noticed in any other

Roundabout Xbinst at Oen. Miles.
- Washington, Dec. 28. An order is
sued by the secretary of war, which re
minded the army officers that it is. ex
tremely impolite to publicly discuss the
possibilities of war, is construed by the
friends of Major General Miles as a
round-about thrust at that officer.
The success that has attended the ise
of Dr. J. H. McLean's Volcanic Oil Lin
iment in the relief of pain and in curing
diseases which seemed beyond the reach
of medicine, has been truly remarkable.
Hundreds supposed to be crippled for
life with arms and legs drawn up
crooked or distorted their muscles with
ered or contracted by disease have been
cured through the nee of this remedy.
