Washington. Deo. 24. The faot that
several members of the cabinet were
observed ooming from the White
House today led to a very general sur
mise that there had been a special
cabinet meeting tooonsider some phase
of the Venesuelan question, or the con
dition of the finances. Diligent in
quiry, however, failed to esatblish the
fact that a cabinet meeting actually
took plaoe, but there is no doubt a con
ference, the nature of which cannot be
ascertained, had been in progress dur
ing the day between the preident and
some of his advisers. Those who were
at the White House included Secre
taries Olney, Carlisle and Lament.
NOTHING OF STRATHNE VIS.

It Has Now Boon Thirty-Four Ueya
Since She Was Lut Spoken.
Pnrt Townaend. Dec. 24. The fate
of the Oriental staemship Strathnevis
and the 190 people aboard still remains
a mvsterv. It has been thirty-four
days since she was last tpoken. She
was then about 800 miles west or. cape
VUtterv. under two small lee-of-niut-
ton sails, slowly making her way east
ward. Sinoe then two ot the wildest
and severest storms of the season have
been experienced in the North Pacific
The British flagship Royal Arthur,
with powerful search lights, steaming
twenty-two knots an hour, andjoover
ing a distance of fifteen miles on each
side, put in a week cruising along
the northern coast without discovering
any signs of the lost steamer. The
only other steamer proscenting the
search is the Danube, of Victoria.
The general opinion among mariners
is that the Strathnevis has gone ashore
on the southeast coast of Alaska. In
that event the sufferings and fatalties
of the crew of the sealing schooner
George R. White, which went ashore
at Wood island last April, when eleven
of the crew froze to death in the snow,
will doubtless be repeated. The con
tinued absence of the Danube is the
only hope held out for the safety of the
passengers and the crew of the Strath
nevis. It is argued if the vessel has
gone ashoer on the Alaska coast, some
word would have been received before
now. It is thought the fuel aboard
the Danube must be nearly exhausted.
Victory for the Tnrklah Troopa, and

New York, Deo. 24. A dispatch to

from Vienna states that Mursah Pasha,
commanding a Turkish force, has cap
tured the town of Zeitoun, which was
some time ago taken by the insurgent
Armenians, and that he had massacred
all the Armenians in the place, who
did not make their escape to the moun".

mand of the Bear was given to Lieu
tenant Busbner, who was considered a
popular and capable officer. The sub
ordinate officers of the Bear today ad
mitted that several ddys ago they had
forwarded to Washington charges
against Lieutenant Bushner, but no
offioer would state the nature of these
charges. Lieutenants Daniels and
Dorry, of the Bear, who filed the
charges against Captain Healy, have
themselves been charged by the crew
and petty officers with sleeping on
watch and neglect of duty.

A Umatilla oounty stockman says
that It looks worse for stockmen in

there was no bay to speak of grown on
the uplands. There is no bnnch grass

cattle or sheep as they are too poor for
beef or mutton. He believes that a

sheep will starve this winter. It is re

ssfety and welfare; that ,it was fully
applicable to our present conditions aud
to the auto of the world's progrnaa, and
thiit it was directly related to the
pending controversy, aud without any
conviction as to the final merit of the
dispute, but anxious to learn in a satis
factory and conclusive manner whether
Great Britain sought, under the claim
of boundary, to extend her potumaiitona
on this continent without the right, or
whether she merely sought ptatatwiioii
of territory already included within her
lines of ownership, this government
proposed to the goveruinunt of I) real
Bitaiu to resort to arbitration as the
proper means of settling the quetlon,
to the end that the vexatious bound
ary dispute botwoeii the two content
ants might lie determined, aud our ex
act standing and relation to the con
troversy miht lie made clear.
It will bo seen from the correspond
euoe herewith submitted that this
proposition has been declined by the
British government, upon grounds
which, under the circumstances, aeeui
to tne to be far from satisfactory. Hav
ing labored faithfully for mauy years
to induce Great Britain to submit this
dispute to impartial arbitration, aud
having been now finally apprised of
her refusal to do so, nothing remaius
but to accept the situation, to rocoguizo
its plain requirements, aud to deal
with it accordingly.
Assuming that the attitude of Vene
zuela will remain unchanged, the dis
pute has reached such a stago as to
make it now incumbent upon the Uni
ted States to take measures to deter
mine with sufficient certainty for iu
justification what is the true divisional
line betwoen the republic of Venezuela
and British Guiana. Inquiry to that
end should, of course, lie conducted
carefully and judicially, and due
weight be given all available evidence,
reoords and facts in support of 'the
olaims of both parties.
In order that such an examination
should be prosecuted in a thorough snd
satisfactory manner, I suggest that oon-
gross make adequate appropriation for
the expenses of commission to be so-
pointed by the executive, who shal
