desire of the naval authorities
to forestall any possibility ot a

resorts growing up around iho
station is responsible for agree
ments to withhold the land.

be built on a private right of way
skirting the cane lands of the Hono

WILLEMSTAD (Curacao), December
12. President Castro ot Venezuela, it
Is declared here by his enemies, has
no intention of ever returning to his
own land, It is declared that his voy
age to Europe for the purpose of sub
mitting to an operation Is merely a
ruse to cover his flight from Venezu
elaand that he has gone abroad to
enjoy the vast sum ot money which he
has stolen, seized and grafted and
from time to time deposited in the
banks of Europe. This sum is esti
mated to aggregate all the way from
$20,000,000 .to $60,000,000. (Continued on Page 9.)

Such is tho belief throughout Vene

that the trip which Castro is taking
to Europe, ostensibly for medical treat
ment, Is in reality an abdication, and
that, having made himself rich in his
nine years' tennre ot the office of pres-
ldent, he will spend tho rest of his
days In dissipation in Europe.

WASHINGTON, D. C, December 23. Justice Daniel T. Wright, of the
Supremo Court ot the District ot Columbia, has decided against the ofli
clals of the Federation of Labor in tho contempt case ot tho Buck Stovo
Company. He sentenced President Gompers of tho Federation of Labor to
one year in prison, Secretary Frank Morrison to six months and Second
Vice-President John Mitchell, to nine months. Tho case will bo appealed
to the United States Supreme Court.
Tho contempt case arose through the refusal ot the officials of tho Ame
rican Federation of Labor to obey an injunction issued during labor trou
bles against the Buck Stove Company, one ot the largest companies ot its
kind In the United States. I
v The Kauai election contest ended this afternoon. Baker, Republican,
who was given a majority of four votes In the election returns, wins in the
recount-by only two votes. The two candidates were tied until the last pre
cinct was counted. This was Koloa. The court threw out one Blake vote,
on account of double marking, and thl s gives the office to Baker. Baker 425,
Blake 423, is the judicial count.
Registrar of Conveyances Merrlam is
preparing a bill which will be present
ed to the Legislature which is some
thing that has been long needed in
this Territory. It relates to the ack
nowledgments taken to instruments.
At a conference of the Registrars from
tho different states ot the Union held
some" tlne ago, a form of acknowl
edgment was decided on which was
found satisfactory by all and which
has since been adopted officially in
very many of the states. Mr. Mer
rlam proposes that this Territory
shall also adopt this form, which will
save a great deal ot trouble If done.
Under the present law a great many
of the forms of acknowledgment which
are used in other stntes are not accept
ed here. For instance, If a deed Is
sent to this Territory with the reg
ular form of acknowledgment which
Is used In California, trouble Imme
diately ensues, for It will not hold wa
ter here, where a separato examination
of both husband and wife is required.
If the uniform acknowledgment 3s
adopted a great deal of tills trouble will
be absolutely removed.

the lead by one. This was cut down
by the rejection of ballots and changes

this morning brought the following
results. In the second precinct Ba
