simple soldier, his staff being quarter
ed in a native hut nearby. The gen

DEMANDS BIG DAMAGES.
Castro Says Asphalt Company Aided
Washington, July 13.President
Castro of Venezuela has demanded
50,000,000 bolivars from the New York
and Bermudez Asphalt company and
has given notice through one of
his ministers of his intention to
proceed legally before the Vene
zuelan courts to secure the mon
ey. The president bases his claim on
the allegation that the asphalt com
pany gave material aid to the late rev
olutionary movement, and especially
to General Mateos, whereby the Cas
tro government was put to the neces
sity of expending the sum of money
named to suppress the rebellion. The
suit is the culmination of a long series
of litigations growing out of the claim
of a rival concernthe Wamer-Quin
lan syndicateto part of the asphalt
lake at Felicidad. Finally last winter
the supreme court of Venezuela gave
judgment in favor of the New York
company. The suit for damages which
General Castro is now about to insti
tute is said to be the outcome of the
failure of the proceedings before the
supreme court. The state department
will watch developments at Caracas.
