fflB DOCTRINE. . Sfctetrs blmufu the Dsektatittti £Fe&i t& th6 ; ~ If England IS Cteiftiing ferf ItBf y 6ft Whicfa id RWsohable Dispute, Ouf Course id id interfere. Ih view of the conflict of opinion fcbout What the Monroe doctrine is ahd td what it applies, and especially ih View of the Very vigorous denunciations of the actioa of congress and the president by such preachers as Lyman Ab' bott and Dr. Parkhurst, every well considered disctlssloh is of interest How that public sehtitneht is being formed. Before the Social Union club Friday evehifag Rev. SteVens read a carefully prepared paper, reviewing the history of the doctrine, and his conclusions are exactly contrary to those of the New York ministers. He believes that the doctrine applies to the existing boundary dispute in Venezuela, and also that this nation should maintain Us position. The length of tho paper makes it impossible to giVe it in full but his conclusions are thus stated! "Summing up, therefore, the case, We find that the Monroe doctrine coii- BletB ttf two declarations: (1.) That the United States will not permit colonization by the European states of any part Of this continent; (2.) That we will not permit European monarchies to interfere with the liberties of the American republics. We find this doctrine based upon the principle of self-defense, and upon a feeling of sympathy with the re- toubllcan institutions on this continent. We find that this principle,, has met with the sanction of the American peo- )le from the time of Washington down; ,hat though thsre have been but few nstances requiring its assertion, yet [the doctrine has been consistently •maintained by our government, and has been tacitly acquiesced In by the European powers. The Monroe doctrine can scarcely be termed an article of international law. It is rather an assertion of our national policy somewhat analogous to the European policy of preserving the so-called " Balance of 'Power." It is a brave stand for derno- 'cratic liberty in America as opposed to monarchical oppression from Europe. It is founded on right, and sanctioned by the requirements of political pru- dance. It is a policy from which the United States cannot recede without a sacrifice of national self-respect, and a loss of political prestige. One question more remains to be considered: Would a boundary dispute vhetween a European power and. an Ainerican republic properly involve the Monroe doctrine, and would it be a question of sufficient importance to demand interference on the part of our government? We think it would. The Monroe doctrine forbids colonization of America. It is a historic 1 fact that extension of boundary lines has been with certain European powers a favorite method of •"'colonization..' Our people ought not to be blunt or otfensive_ in their enunciation of the doctrine, neither ought we to assume that the European power is always in the wrong in such controversies. It must be home in mind that the South-American republics are poorly governed and are weak in diplomacy, and so are liable to be extravagant and unreasonable in their contentions. If, however, investigation should disclose that European powers are wrongfully attempting to occupy American soil there seems no alternative but a firm insistence upon the principles enunciated by President Monroe." Rev. Stevens discussed at length the origin of the doctrine when the Holy Alliance—Bussia, France, Austria and Prus8la~-ialkod of • overpowering the young South American independent states; the application of it during the attempt of the French to seat Maximilion oh the throne in Mexico; and the ;NicaraiigUft incident of-a> year ago. As. (l to the latter he said: " The Nlotu'augui ease was very siuy >le. Ui'aat Britain demanded Inderonl- r for an alleged injury to one of her .tizens, The United States, in behalf if Nicaragua, requested Great Britain I arbitrate the matter, which request is refused, Great Britain siezed and ^^Id the Island of Corinto until her :claim W*is satisfied, ^having first given >ouv government assurance that sne intended no permanent occupation of any {portico of Nicaragua. The general judgement in regard to the posit on Itakan by President Cleveland in this toajer is well expressed by McMaster Jin.

Mr. Davidson Breached his farewell sermon In the Congregational church, on Sunday morning to a very large and attentive audience. The theme chosen was "Christmas," as heralded by the angel's song of "Peace and Good Will," and the Christian spirit as exemplified by the life of Christ,' The subject was treated in a most scholarly and able manner. .Of, the "many, able sermons preached by Mr. Davidson in his seven years ministry in Algona', perhaps none would be pronounced more able and scholarly than this farewell sermon. His thought in part was this: " The greatest gift to the world is the gift of a great nature. Mrs. Humphrey Ward tells us it was the opinion of the late Dr. Benjamin Jowett, the renowned scholar of Baliol college, that the education of the future will be given more and more through the means of biography; through reiterating the deeds and thoughts of great individuals. Christ, born amid humble surroundings, gave the greatest gift to the world—the gift of hope. Rome.- had given power, Greece had given art. beauty and eloquence, but art was cold and power unfeeling until Christianity came to give sympathy, and life, and joy, and peace. The Grecian civilization at its best would sacrifice the weak and unfortunate. The Roman sought only self aggrandizement; Christ came to save the weak and helpless, to heal the sick and open the eyes of the blind, and to give immortal fife to all. Such a life, in a worldly sense, is always of sor- •row. ''Christ was a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief." Moses and the prophets were men called to endure great trials and to bear their burden of sorrow, butas the eagle has the power to bear itself above the storm and clouds and reach the clearer heaven, lol the true follower of Christ can live in the upper atmosphere of peace and hope." The beautiful and appropriate hymn was sung at the opening of the service: " There's a vldeness In' God's mercy like the wideuess of the sea, There's a kindness In his justice which Is more than liberty; For the love of God Is broader than tho measure of man's mind, Anfl the Uoart of the Eternal Is most wonderfully kind," In closing Rev. Mr. Davidson asked feelingly that a rich benediction may rest upon the eh arch where he has labored so long, and upon the people of Algona. And we believe. ..the wUll.Qf all will ba that Rev. Davidson' may be greatly prospered In his future work, and in the new field to which he has been called, and that his sphere of use- ulness may be constantly strengthened and enlarged. |TheSoelftl'tJn}cfB'olubis becoming a feature agjong Algona's at- Every meeting this fall Js r otlce.
