I tho Monroe Doctrine.
I Washington, ' Dec. 16. The
j Italian embassador today called at
1 the State Department and advised
Secretary Hay that Italy had join
ed the allies in the operations
against Venezuela. He -requested
that Bowcn assume charge of
Italian interests in Venezuela, and
the Secretary granted his request,
subject to the approval of Vene
zuela. Italy enters the combination
on the same plan as to abstention
from territorial seizures as Gcr
! runny and Great Britain.
The Italian Embassador explain
ed to Secretary Hay that it had
been the hope of the Rome Govern
1 ment at first to reach a satisfactory
I settlement of her claims against
1 Venezuela, such as France had
secured To this end a polite but
firm note was addressed to the
Caracas Foreign Office after the
I ultimatums of Germany and Great
! Britain had been sent. Pending
'the answer to this note, the Italian
Government did not resort to
I drastic measures. When the reply
1 came, it was found to be not only a
! rejection of all Italy's demands,
1 but its tone was wholly displeasing,
and it was, therefore, necessary for
' Italy to follow the course of Ger-
many and Great Britain and join in
J the allied naval demonstration.
' There is one Italian vessel now
I at La Guayra and two more ate
' understood to have sailed today for
'Venezuelan waters from.Naples.
' Estimated at between two and
1 three million bolivars, Italy's
i claims are largely in excess of those
l of Great Britain, and the course of
the Rome Government in not act
ing hastily in the matter has com
mended itself to the State Depart
ment. Before leaving this morning, the
Italian Embassador gave Secretary
Hay every assurance thnt his Gov
ernment wished to act strictly in
accordance with President Roose
velt's interpretation of the Monroe
One of the comforting features of
the day's developments, as to the
official mind, was the reception of
an intimation that so far as Great
Britain was concerned she was dis
posed to accept the view of the
State Department here as to the
limitations of "a peaceful block
ade." That is to say, the disposi
tion is to avoid interference with
neutral merchant shipping, where
its movements do not give actual
aid to the Venezuelan Government.
There is some reason to believe that
at present there is a difference of
opinion between the allies relative
to the blockade, and that England,
with her great commercial and
shipping interests, is reluctant to
consent to the imposition of irritat
ing burdens upon it every time
there is a serious friction between
two nations, yet not justifying a
declaration of war.

The Daily London Chronicle, in ,
the course of remarks on the anni
versary of Pamell's death, referred
to the rumor that he is still alive. '
So some believed that the dauphin,
long after his alleged death in
prison, lived as an humble clergy
man in the United States, where he '
was known as Williams, and the 1
article "Have We a Bourbon
Among Us?" published in Put-!
nam's Magazine (1853), made a;
sensation. Some still believe that .
Marshal Ney lived and died in
Georgia years after he was shot.
Henry Fauir.leroy, hanged for lor
gery, was seen afterward in this'
country. The story was that a
silver tube had been inserted in his '
throat, for in those days the rope
strangled, and he had been rcsusci-
tated. ' John Sadleir, member of
Parliament, was supposed to have
killed himself on Hampstcad heath.
The night was a muddy one and
the soles of his boots were clean. J

Sadlier's, butler recognized his mas
ter, yet friends of Sadlier swore that
they saw him in New York long
after he was buried. Then there
are some who insist that Major Le
Caron, who died soon after his
Clan-na-Gael revelations, is still
alive; that Mr. Gower, Nordica's
first husband, came down safely in
his baloon and is still on earth.
Stop Child Labor.
Scranton, Pa., Dec. 16. When
the Coal Strike Commission met
todav Chairman Gray opened the
proceedings by saying that the
commissioners were impressed with
the spectacle of the little girls who
were before the commission yester
day and testified that they' worked
all night. He said the people of
the community and citizens of the
Commonwealth should not let the
incident pass without taking some
steps to have the legislature of
Pennsylvania seriously consider the
enactment of a law that will forbid !
the employment of children at J
night. At the suggestion of the I
commission the statement' of the
wages of the fathers of two of the
girls were presented. One earned
more than $1,000 last year and the
other over $900.
