Lloyds Resignation is Ac
cepted by Holstein.
House Stenographer Lloyd's re
signation was read in tho House
this morning and Speaker llol
stein's action in accepting the re
situation was confirmed by a vote
of cightcm to six."
Coh'cn made it apparent that he
believed the resignation due to tho
inllucnce of the Big Stick and he
roared lustily at the walls of "the
cabinet" which have never been
to him for tho reason that he is
not the chairman of any commit
tee and only the Speaker and the
chairman of committees arc mem
bers of "the cabinet.'' He felt
Stenographer Lloyd had by infer
ence, at least, been included in the
charges of graft which had been
more or less insinuated since
Affonso had put in a resolution to
get the pay of the Stenographer
increased by an allowance, over
his $10 per diem, of 15 cents per
folio for transcription of minutes
for the use of the House which was
supposed to be done as inclnsivo
in tho regular duties of tho stcno'
grapher at $10 a day.
Kalciopu made the interesting
statement that ho was preparing a
resolution to investigate every
body. In fact there has altogether
come forth quite a little noise, first
because the stenographer was not
satisfied with an easy ton dollars a
day, that doesn't come many days
in the year, and second because an
evening paper believes there is
graft in tho matter of translating
bills of tho House
Following is the correspondence
between the Speaker of tho House
and tno stenographer:
"After a quiot consultation with
Mr. Castro, chairman of the ac
counts committee, I now find that
the arrangements and prices for
typewriting agreed upon wore to
establish a price for tho ordinary
typing of lulls, etc, by outside
parties. This fact has resulted in
a serious misunderstanding of the
case on my part. I realize that
the influence of yourself and Mr.
Castro in a great measure secured
mo tho poi-tion of stenographer,
henco I have asked Mr. Affonso to
withdraw the resolution, if such
might be possible and have tho
same expunged from the minutes.
As you have made other arrange
ments in getting out the minutes,
I see the useless necessity of my
staying on any longer, and in the
spirit of economy you so much de
sire, I tender hereby my resigna

"II. L. HOLSTEIN,
Said Cohen: "I undersigned
from Jtr.i Lloyd that this resigna
tion was written by him when he
was unaware of subsequent events,
recently transpiring, and hois jiow
of the opinion that possibly the in
vestigation about to be begun in
'regard to certain charges of tilings
going on in the IIouso, that are
not right, may be taken as having
something to do with his resigna
lion and so place him in a bud
light. Thoroforo I do not believe
his resignation should be accepted
at this time. I believe this House
wants to givo everybody a square
deal and Mr. Lloyd as an oflicerof
this IIouso should have a square
Sheldon did not seo that there
were any charges against thosteno
grapher, nor that he was in any
way connected with any charges.
Affonso declared that he would
not withdraw his resolution, as
Lloyd had asked, for the resolution
had been properly introduced.
There was, nothing to do but ac
cept the resolution, declared Shel
don. The Speaker had acted in a
The Speaker noted that the
officers of tno House were under
the control of the Speaker subject
to tho revision of the IIouso. It
was up to the members to deter
mine whether or not tho 'Speaker
had acted right.
Cohen loudly protested that it
was up to the IIouso to know what
wore the inner workings of this star
chamber cabinet or whatever it
was that seemed to want to control
everything and shut, off discussion.
Ho had heard charges in tho House
against the stenographer and the
latter should be given a fair and
impartial and open chance to
prove his innocence and not be
shut off by cabinet proceedings.
Sheldon and Kalciopu declared
they knew of no charges over hav
ing been made in the House against
tho stenographer. Charges, on tho
other hand, had been made against
the members of tho House them
selves in an afternoon paper of
Kalciopu regretted that the
Speaker had accepted Lloyd's re
signation, for if charges of a gene
ra) nature were being made then
everybody should be investigated.
"I am preparing a resolution to
investigate everybody from the
Speaker himself to the lowest
officer of the IIouso," said Kalcio
pu. "There are clerks being em
ployed by committees who have no
right to be employed, I hear, and
if that isn't graft, why then what
"I move we support tho Speaker's
action in accepting Lloyd's resigna
tion,'' said Rice.
Cohen reiterated the idea of not
accepting tho resignation. To ac
cept, he said, would be like letting
him go under a cloud.
Shingle was anxious to eliminato
from this House what was clearly
interfering with tho business of the
House. Tho stenographer had,
tendered his resignation, which
had been accepted, ,and that was
all there was to it. , Tho matter of
wanting to give tho stenographer
more money in tho liist place had
been the cause of all this useless
and time-wasting and undignified
wrangling and trouble.
Cohen wanted to defer action on
Lloyd's resignation till the special
investigation committee had re
ported on charges as made in yes
terday's papers, but this was lost
and the Speaker was supported
Those who voted against support
ing the Speaker's action in accept
ing Lloyd's resignation, were:
Affonso, Cohen, Furtado, Kalciopu,
Those not present were, Coney,
Hihio, Douthitt, Kaniho and Na-

The rest voted to support the
Speaker's action, numbering eighteen.

FORT DE FRANCE, Martinique,
April 10. Ex-President Castro of
Venezuela has been expelled from
Martinique. I If was taken from a
sick bed, put on a stretcher despite
his protest, and placed aboard the
steamer Versailles. This was done
upon cabled orders foom the French
Government. He will probably bo

CARACAS, Venezuela, March 17.
With ox-President Castro on his
way back to Venezuela, critical times
arc looming up for the country. Tho
excited enthusiasm that hailed tho
overthrow of the tyrant and the ad
vent of President Gomez and his
Cabinet has given place to desire for
evidences of real reform and real
In January a few thousand peons
were placed at' work paving the
streets; prisons were thrown open
and there was a mild spasm of busi

influx of oflico-seekors and their de

sprang up like mushrooms and bab
bled on the grand new era that was
now in the full flush of a glorious
dawn after the night of Castro's op
Today tho optimism is a little fad

Tho settlement of tho Asphalt
Trust claim has caused a serious
breach hi the Gomez Cabinet.- The
arrangement was procured by a
scant majority voto engineered by
Leopoldo Baptista, tho Secretary
General. Tho Trust pays to the
Venezuelan Treasury 800,000 as in
demnity for eleven months of a
bloody campaign and $20,000 a year
royalty for the privilege of rcope.r
ating its' concession.
It is rumored that a very much
larger sum of money, one more
nearly approximating the equities of
tho case, is involved, but that the
Government Treasury will not re
ceive it. Two bidders were in tho
field for tho asphalt concession, each
unsuccessful though each offer five
times the accepted amount.
, Alcantara, Minister of tho Interior
and a graduate of West Point Acad
emy, led tho opposition to the As
phalt Trust, but under tho new ar
rangement tho company enjoys
greater privileges thamundor its ori
ginal concession. Alcantara and
Baptista aro tho leaders of opposing
factions' in the Cabinet, tho first to
Tho other four claimants, on
whose behalf tho United States Gov
ernment has presumably been inter
ested during tho past four years of
Castro domination, have not been
s.o fortunate as the Asphalt Trust.
High Commissioner Buchanan seems
to have concentrated his energies on
the one corporation. Tho others are
very much disgruntled. .
The representative of (ho French
Cable Company has been received
in Caracas with every mark of friend
ly approval. It was this company
that was thrown out by Castro on
the charge that its operators and
lines were used in helping tho revo
lution espoused by the Asphalt
Newspapers that have discussed,
political and economic conditions
with greatest freedom have been
warned by the new regime. It is
apparent that freedom of the press

They were completely wrecked, and,
the machinery carted through the.
open streets under the complaisant
eye of the new government.
Castro's return is the subject of.
considerable' interest not unmixed
with apprehension. It is doubtful
whether he will land in Venezuela
