President Roosevelt will break camp on May 8, a week earlier than he in tended, and will start for Washington at once. The only stops he will make are at Denver and Chicago, where date for bis reception have been advanced to meet the new arrangement. Secretary Loeb came from the camp early today, where he conferred with the president all of yesterday. He an nounced upon reaching here that affairs in Washington made it 'necessary that the president curtail his trip. That tbere is nothing alarming In tne situation is manifested from the fact that the bunt will be continued ten days more, in spite of the condition of affairs which resulted in the altered plans. The Veneuzelan situation, it is believed here, retailed in the order to start borne on May 8. The party will leave Glenwood Springs at about 4 o'clock on May 8, reaching Denver the same evening. After the banquet there the party will spend the night on the train, wbich will leave Denver over the Union Foci fic at about 7 a. m. on May 9. . Tbere is much speculation bere as to the president's reasons for advancing the time of bis departure from Colo rado. Mr. Loeb announces that tbere is no pressing business tnat requires the president's attentiion, but there are a number of things coming up about the middle of the month in which he is greatly interested. - What these are the secretary would not say. It was said also that tbere is nothing in the Vene xuelan or Dominican situations that cannot be attended to by Secretary Taft. HER GUNS ARE A FAILURE. British Navy in Very Poor Condition for Battle. London, April 28 The Daily Graph ic this morning commences a series of articles calling in question the dura tion of the armament of a modern Brit ish fleet in a manner which, if the facta should be substantiated, is calculated to cause a great sensation. The writer allege that 15 warships unfit for ac tion have been discovered, as the 35 calibre 12-inch guns constituting the main armament of three vessels are in capable of firing full charges. The latest Woolwich pattern 50-calibre six inch gun has also failed under experi ment, and the question naturally sris a aa to the e idurance of the armamei t of the whole modern fleet. The article states facts unfortunately beyond dis pute, and points out that the present is the time for action and not for b'ame. The fac' came to light through de ve.opments of weakness in new long gun under experiment and the s'mul taneous failure of the 12-inch guns in the Majestic class of battleships and through the bunting of shells in seven out of 16 British made guns on board of Japanese battleships. The writer point out further that Great Britain is the only power that ha adopted the manufacture of the wire guns. FLOODS EAST OF ROCKIES. Warm Weather Causes High Water but Improve Range. Denver, April 28. The warm weath er of the past two days has melted the snow in the mountains, and all river on the eastern slope of the Rockies are very high. Some damage is resulting in place not heretofore reported, and conditions in Southern Colorado are till threatening. Prominent sheepmen from Northern New Mexico, who arrived at Albu querque today, ray tnat report oi losses to sheepmen as a consequence ol the recent storm are greatly exaget ated. Some lambs perished, they say. but on the whole sheep in the section referred to were never in better condi tion. The benefit to the range brought by the moisture will greatly exceed any losses in livestock, they declare. In Colorado, reports indicate that the damage to the livestock industry was considerable. Jews Fear Massacre. Warsaw, April 28. A Jewish organ called the Hund has issued a manifesto urging members not to participate in demonstrations on May 1 for fear they will lead to anti-Semitic disturbances. The appreshension of the Hund is le lieved to be not unfounded, for the bomb-throwing and other violent act by Socialists, of which organization the majority are Jews, have enraged the Poles, who declare that such crim l are abhorrent to the Polish nation. The Warsaw garrison has been aug mented by four regiments of infantry. Opposed to Grabbing. - Marseilles, April 28.
