MINISTER RUSSELL VISITS CASTRO
EXACT NATURE OF HIS MISSION
NOT MADE PUBLIC BY WASH-
Caracas, Venezuela, Oct. 25.The
government at Washington has com
missioned the American minister, Mr.
Russell to endeavor to arrange the
Franco-Venezuelan diplomatic incident.
Mr. Russell will have an interview
with President Castro on the subject
The diplomatic incident which Minis
ter Russell will^ endeavor' ,to settle
arose from the protest lodged Sept. 19
at Caracas by the French charge, M.
Taigny, against the closing of the Ca
racas station of the French.Cable com
pany and the expulsion from Venezu
ela of the manager of the company, M.
Will Not Discuss Russell's Mission at
Washington, Oct. 25.Pending the
result of Mr. Russell's interview with
President Castro the state department
will'not discuss its nature. It should
be understood, however, that he will
confine his efforts to a possible assist
ance in the solution of the Taigny inci
dent, involving President Castro's al
leged discourteous treatment of the
French minister at Caracas. The
Washington government feels that
President Castro made a mistake in
this matter. As soon as it became
known $hat this was the paramount
grievance of France against Venezuela
and the primary cause of the dispatch
of the French squadron the hope was
revived here that France might yet
"lirid a way for tyie Settlement of her
trouble with Venezuela without resort
At rfflgt-prettcfc, embassy, when in
formed of the effort of: the American
minister at Caracas to arrange an
agreement between France and Ven
ezuela, the following authoritative
statement was made:
"We are extremely happy to hear of
the very kind intervention of the
United States and we are sure*that
under the circumstances France would
have been glad to render the same
service to the United States. And the
news of the intervention seems to us
all the better because it will, without
any doubt, enable President Castro to
realize the error made by his minister
of, foreign affairs and probably,' will
have the result that France shall not
have to take recourse to such methods
as she should dislike very much to use,
but for which, in case of need, all
preparations have been made."
Senor Veloz, the Venezuelan charge
to this country, had not yet been ofil
eially informed about the statement
and therefore declined to make any

three police precincts'were hurriedly
summoned at night to the lower end
of the city to quell what threatened to
be a serious riot in the Syrian quarter,
where fights between fhe friends and
opponents of Bishop. Hawaweenie have
been frequent of late. The bishop was
arrested a few weeks ago charged with
participating in a shooting affray in
Brooklyn and/since then the Syrian
quarter has been in a condition of
chronic excitement. Before the police
succeeded in^clearing the streets half
a dozen Syrians received cuts and
