INTEGRITY OF AMERICAiN HEMISPHERE THREATENED Venezuela as an Independent Nation Re grets the German Attitude, Consider ing That It Affects the Rights of the American rtemispnere, vnicn m11 American Republics Must Uphold The Influence of the United States. [BY AS:O1IATED TRESS.] Willemstad, Curacao, August i6.-A memorandum hias been delivered to the German minister in Caracas, Venezuela, and confidentially to the representatives of all the friendly powers. This memo randum was an answer to the note trans mitted last December by Ambassador von Ilolleben to the United States government. l'he existence of this note was not ofi cially known to Castro until lately. The kaiser's government in that note in formed the United States of its intention to occupy a Venezuelan port in order to enforce payment of general clhims. Castro's Reply. Genleral Castro's oticial answer to that note is regarded by members of his gov crnment, as a stroIng document. He con tends that Germany has not respected Venezuela's right to legislate, both for Venezuelan citizens and for foreigners residing in Venezuela. Castro insists that the claims of the Germans anid other foreigners for their damages during the civil wars should be presented to and decidLd only by Vene zuelanl courts. Germany maintains that satisfaction can not be obtained in that way, owing to the well known anld pecculiar character istics of Venezuelan courts, which are President Castro's instruments. The kaiser's government contends that the claims should he settled by conferences between a German diplomatic agent and the Venezuelan m:nister for foreign af fairs and in case of a di-agreement these matters should be referred to The Hague international comn t of arbitration. A Masterful Memorandum. President Castro's memorandum de clarts that the German claims have been exaggerated aind conttains a list of refer ences to autthoritles on international law to support the government's argument. It is declared that Germany has made a logical argument, but simply a series of demands to the validi y of which Vene zuela objects. In conclusion, the Venezuelan, memorial says that the government presents to the German empire and to the friendly pow ers, its prctest ;:gainst the ideas, im putations and purposes of the German note of December t and declares this protest is necessary It asserts that V\ene zuela as an independent nation, objects to the moves of Ambassador l[ollcben's commnunicationi to the United States gov ernment and considers that the note in its political aspect and character affects the integrity of the rights of the Atmeri can hemisphere-an integrity which all American republics must uphold and for the strengthening of which two interna tional congresses have met through the influence of the United States.

AWFULWARNINGTO SCORCHERS Chaffeurs Have Beei Overdoing It on moad Where the Fairs Met Death--Automobilists Discuss Accident--The Wills 15v ASSOC'IAt:n II PRl'i.] New York, August 16.- -The cause of the automobile accident in which Mr. and Mrs. Charles I.. Fair were killed and also of other motor accidents, is a topic of dlis cuession among lembers of the Auto club of Paris, says the Tribune correspondent. The unanimous oplinion is that recognized clubs and owners of automoblilcs should be impressed with the terrible risk they run in indulging in outbursts of high speed, even on the long, broad and perfect roads of Normandy. There is the deepest sympathy felt for Mr. and Mrs. Charles L. Fair and it is admitted that every auto car on the favor ite road between Nantes and Everaux. which is as smooth as a billiard table, lets out at full speed. Too Much Scorching. It is noted that during the past fort night at Trouville and Dieppe and Aix lea Baines, there has been a great deal too lmuch auto scortching, usuatlly by new and young owners of motor cars. One of the offenders in this respect is Tod Sloan, the American, who is reported as goilng at a maximum speed through the Norman vil lages near Trouville, Pontleveque and Ca bourge. The road from Evercaux to Pacy-Sur Eure is beautifully macadamized. The spot where the accident occurred, directly in front of the gates of the Chateau de Mai, is on a moderate descending grade. Four miles to the west of Pacy, the road is slightly winding to make the descent to tlhe river Eure more gradual. T'here are double rows of fine elut trees beside the TYPOGRAPHICAL UNION ADJOURNS CONVENTION Vote Two Thousand Dollars for Aid of Striking Mine Workers-Will Support Typographical Journal.
