THE MONROE DOCTRINE.
The Monroe doctrine is a ques question
tion question not to be decided by appeals
to "patriotism" or "Americanism,"
but by the decision of experts. It
is gratifying to us to find that the
Star in its former utterances on
this subject is in line with all the
leading international lawyers of
the country. Professors Von
Hoist and McMaster, who have de devoted
voted devoted their lives to the study of
our history and institutions, whose
works are generally accepted as
authoritative, Professor Moore, of
Columbia, Professor Theodore S.
Woolsey, of Yale, and Professor
McVane, of Harvard, who occupy
chairs of international law, hold
that President Cleveland's con construction
struction construction of the Monroe doctrine
is exceedingly forced. Of course
the president and congress can
make it anything they please.
But whether it is wise for our gov government
ernment government to take a position which
makes it responsible for the inter international
national international complications of the
South American republics is a
matter to be very thoroughly dis discussed
cussed discussed in all its bearings. The
hasty action of the house, and the
unwillingness of the senate to
shift responsibility from the presi
dent, may result in our committing
ourselves to a construction of the
Monroe doctrine which neither
our p3st history nor the sober
second judgement ot the people
Our government admits that its
knowledge of the facts touching
the Venezuelan title is imperfect,
and that it is ignorant of the Brit British
ish British Cse. In its last analysis, our
complaint is that, on the basis of
the Venezuelan representation,
we believe that England is about
to commit aggression against Ven Venezuela's
ezuela's Venezuela's territory, and that she will
not permit her title to be reviewed
.by arbitrators. No one questions
our right to appoint a commission
to determine the rights of Ven
ezuela upon the basis of all the
facts attainable. That com mis
sion might have been international
in its composition. But the weak
point in the president's message is
that he not only assumes that
Great Britain is wrong and asks
for a commission to rectify that
judgement, but threatens England
with war if the klecision of that
commission is not acceeded to by
the British government. That
threat was entirely uncalled for
and against all recognized diplo
matic usages. The circumstances
did not call for bluster and threat threat-enings.

into the matter. Such a farm
would prove the ultimate saving
to the county of many thousands
of dollars, for it could be made
nearly if not quite self-sustaining,
and our poor would be more prop properly
erly properly cared for. Judge Hocker used
very strong language in reference
to the matter, stating that a peo people's
ple's people's civilization was judged by the
manner in which their poor were
cared for, and as we 'all know this
to be a fact, and as the simplest
humanity requires it at our hand?,
the only question to be considered
is, how can it best be done at
smallest cost. This may be solved
in the establishment of a farm.

The time has therefore come when

The saloon system is itself a
