Maracaibo, Jan. 22. Additional
details regarding the botnbarduicnt
by the German vessels show that
the Panther left her position close
to Fort San Carlos, which she took
up earlier in the day, Wednesday
afternoon at 3 o'clock and joined
the Falke. This ship was half a.
mile outside the bar and about five
miles from the fort. '
At three o'clock the correspond
ent of the Associated . Press, in si
rowboat, approached the side of
the fort, out of range, and from this
point witnessed the long-range fire
of the German cruisers, which con
tinued from 3 until 6 o'clock.
me vmcta anu tueiaiKc were
closetl together and nearer the fort
than the Panther. The first two
vessels at a range of four and a
half miles poured in a continuous
rain of shells upon the fort and only
stopped firing with the advent of
dusk "at 8 o'clook. At this hour
the German vessels retired seaward
after having made a second inef
fectual attempt to land troops in the
village of San Carlos, situated at
the base of the fort.
At 7 o'clock Wednesday after
noon the correspondent, who was
accompanied by a Government
telegrapher bearing a telegram
from President Castro to the com
mandant of San Carlos, landed on
the island and entered the fort. The
walls of the fort are terribly ham
mered and there were many evi
dences of the firing. Twelve dead
Venezuelan soldiers were counted'
behind the ramparts and fifteen
other men, seriously wounded, were
lying on a low platform.
The fort is literally covered with
pieces of broken shell. It was seen
that a great many of the German
shells had not exploded. The ma
gazine had a very narrow escape,
two shells having come within an
uce of penetrating it. The walls of
the fort which face the entrance of
the lake suffered particularly and
were greatly damaged. It is esti
mated by the commandant, Gen
eral Bello, that the German ships
fired more than 1600 shells at Fort
Although the damage inflicted
upon the fort by the sustained fire
of the German cruisers is very
great, it is not all that could be ex
pected from a continuous fire from
modern highpower ,uns. The vil-
lage of San Carlos suffered greatly.
The aim of the German gunners
appears to have been inaccurate,
for more than sixty pet cent of their
shells exploded in the village before
reaching the fort.
The cannon mounted at San
Carles have not sufficient range to
reach the Falke and the Vineta, so
the fire from these vessels was not
returned, as they kept out of range
of the Venezuelan artillery. The
Vineta and Falke are of too great
draught to cross the bar. The
Panther alone can do this, and this
fact explains why the last-mentioned
cruiser was the only one to
come in close to the fort. Some of
the artillery on the fort has been
destroyed by the German fire, but
there are still fiveguns that can be
dent and the garrison of Fort San
Carlos rested from the fight of the
day and- made preparations for
what the morrow might bring.
A fisherman from the village of
San Carlos has arrived here in a
canoe with his family. Two of
this man's children were killed by
shells froin the German cruisers.
He reports that more than twenty
five Indian fishermen have been
killed or wounded at San Carlos.
The fishermen they are helpless.
Last night there was a popular
demonstration on the streets of this
town. The people paraded, but
there were no words of hatred or
insults as they passed the German
stores, which arc numerous in

Peril On Kvrry Side.
Loudon, Jan. 22. Germany's
latest outbreak has caused a de
cidedly bad impression in London.
Some idea of the general sentiment
is to be obtained from the comments
in the evening papers. "The Kais
er's Revenge" mid "The Mailed
Fist's Might" were two of the
striking headlincss describing the
bombaardment of Fort SanCarlos.
How far Germany will go in her
apparent attempt to obstruct a set
tlement is what troubles this nation.
It is fully realized that owing to
the treaty concluded by this Gov
ernment, Great Britain and Ger
many are jointly responsible for the
actions of the combined fleet. Wed
nesday's bombardment intensifies
the feeling that the Government
committed a grave blunder when it
bound itself to Germany.
It would not be an altogether
unexpected step on the part of he
British Government if an official
statement were issued disclaiming
any responsibility for the hostile
acts of Germany. The Daily
Chronicle says: "There is now
danger on every side."
Every day that a telegraph
operator works, at three minutes
before 1 1 o'clock there is only one
man in the whole country from San
Francisco to New York who is pri
vileged to use his key. That man
is the operator at Washington. In
those three minutes every key is
open, and all operators wait for
minutes' ticking, which tells them
the" correct time. From that tick
ing every telegraph company's
clock is set. There are at least
20,000 operators at work. Taking
three minutes from every one of
them equals 60,000 minutes idled
away every day. It would take one
man 125 years to do the listening
'of all these uien for those few min
utes. At the rate of $50 a mouth,
and working for the required num
ber of years, this man would ie
ceive $75,000. Philadelphia Pub
