case for th^ respective sides. Mr. Jack
son for the Times argued that broadly
speaking, the paper was not stating the
case too strongly in saying that Kirkhara
ought to be in state's prison for his rough,
brutal and wholly uncalled-for conduct f«t

contention that Kirkham's good name hnd

Mr. Kirkham's attorney made the
that the only circles in which Kirkham's
reputation was bad was among the sport

ashamed of. ..Otherwise there was nothing
to show but that his conduct as a police

Venezuela Government Troops
Worsted In Several KiiK'iui'iiifiiiv.
AYASHINGTON, Sept. 29—The atate
department has receive:! .a dispatch from
the United States consul at Puerto Ca
bello, Venezuela, under date of the 13th
| iriht., in which he give.? a summary of the
I several encounters between the govern
j ment and rebel forces in that country.
I The first encounter between the forces of
rebel Gen. Castro and those of the Vene
zuelan government occurred near the
I city of San Christobal, near, the Colom-
I bian boundary line, the government
forces engaged consisted of between 400
and SCO men under command of Gen. Le-'
poldo Sarria. The rebel force was
considerably larger, but the actual num
ber is not known. The rebels defeated
the government troops and captured
their leader, Gen. Sarria.
The second battle was in San Chris
tobal. The 1,000 troops of the govern
ment, commanded by Gen. Peralosa, en
gaged 2,000 rebel troops, commanded by
Gen. Castro, eight or nine days, result
ing in Gen. Castro withdrawing his men,
he having learned that Gen. Fernandez
was on his woy there with about 7,000
troops of the government.
The third battle was before and in the
town of El Cobre.
Report has it that the rebels here de
feated 1.500 government troops under the
command of Gen. Morales,and the gen
eral succeeded in escaping with but sev
enty-two men and the ammunition train.
The fourth encounter took place at
I.umbador mountain, where Gen. Weide
mtinn, with 2,500 government troops, tried
to stop the march of the rebels, reported
to be 2,000 strong. The fight is reported
to have ended in a draw, both sides
claiming a victory. At any rate, Gen
Castro continued his march.
At the town of Cordero, Gen. Casi.ro
was attacked by nearly 5,000 government
troops under Gen. Fernandez. His force
then consisted of about 3,000 men. A ter
rible battle was fought, report placing
the loss of the government at nearly
1,500 killed and wounded. That of the
rebels is unknown, but it is thought to
be less, as their position during the bat
tle was superior. Again both claim a
victory. After the battle the rebels
inarched to the town of Tover. In this
place the rebels fought and dispersed, so
it is said, 800 government troops under
Gen. Suplicio Guitarrez, and captured
arms, ammunition and supplies.
At Areneles were massrd, according to
report, nearly 3.500 government troops,
commanded by Gens. Torres, Aular, Gue
vara and Planes. Yet, if report be true,
" the rebels have captured many rifles and
ammunition. In Barquisimeto, Gen.
Suarez has about 4,000 government troops
entrenched behind strong fortifications,
but the rebel forces did not attack. At
the time the consul reports, Gen. Castro
is said to be resting his troops and ani
mals before marching to Velencia.

EIGHTS OF LUMBERMEN.
Ontario Government Files Answer
as to Michigan Dealers.
TORONTO, Ont, Sept. 29.—The Ontario
government has filed its answer to the
petition of right of the Michigan lumber
men. It pleads:
First—The longstanding provision of the
law that all licenses granted must be sub
ject to such conditions, regulations and
restrictions as may be established from,
time to time.
Second—That as all regulations were not
complied with the crown lands commis
sioner had no authority to renew their
licenses to applicants.
Third—That the supplicants acquired no
enforcable right in respect to the license
beyond a year from date of issue.
Fourth—That the log export law is intra
vires. But the main defense appears to
be that the purchasers enforcable rights
are limited to a year's license.
In an interview this point is discussed
by one of the supplicants counsel, who
quotes the speech of a former crown land 9
commissioner, in which the theory Is put
for%vard that the license holder is really
the owner of the timber, not simply of a
year"s right to cut it.
