PRICE FIVE CENTS BRITISH WLL EMPLOY FURTHER COERCIVE METHODS LANSDOWNE SAYS IT IS NECESSARY TO EMPLOY FORCE British Cabinot Meets to Dis cuss Situation--Germans in Correspondence. ITALY ASKS BOWEN TO LOOK TO THEIR CAUSE Further Details to the Sinking of the venezuelan veasela by the British Retribution-She Steamed Out of the Harbor With Them in Tow; Later There Were Cannon Shots; Then the Warship Came Back Without Them. IIY .SSOCIATED IPR 5.· . London, Dec. i6.-Replying to a ques tion in the house of commons today under foreign affairs Secretary Cranborne said no attempt had been made to refer the dis pute in Venezuela to arbitration. Replying to a question in the house of lords today Lord Lansdowne, the foreign secretary, said that if the seizure of the Venezuelan gunboats did not produce the desired effect further coercive resources would be employed. The matter nad been considered in consultation with Germany, and it had been decided to resort to a blockade of the ports. It was not intend ed to land a British force and still less to occupy Venezuelan territory. Premier Balfour presided at a cabinet meeting held at the foreign office at noon today. The Venezuelan crisis and the king's speech at the proroguing of parlia ment were the principal matters considered. GERMANS HAVE NOT YET ANSWER'ED MR. CASTRO Berlin, Dec. i6.-The German govern ment has not yet replied to President Cas tro's offer of arbitration, being still in cor respondence with the British government on the subject. It is intimated that Ger many's ready reply is not likely to be ready for some days. The opinion in the cabinet appears to be that President Castro's proposals are mere ly a move in a game designed to see what Germany and (;reat Britain are now will ing to do and as a test also of American public feeling. The prevailing idea here at present is that it is too late to arbitrate and that the acceptance of the oiler to do so would place Germany in the position of having put her hand to the plow and as looking backward. The government's con cern at the present moment is to guide the application of force so as to avoid what could be taken internationally as a declaration of war, resulting in the recog nition of Venezuela as a belligerent. The conduct of the United States is regarded in diplomatic opinion here as being strong and dignified, and the state department's handling of the affair is looked upon as establishing Europe's recognition of the Monroe doctrine, because every step of Germany and Great Britain was made after taking into account what the United States thought of it. At the same time it is claimed that events in Venezuela are sav ing the United States many future com plications by letting the Latin republic understand that the United States will not protect them from the effects of financial delinquency and internal disorder. ITALY ASKS BOWEN TO LOOK TO THEIR CAUSE S'ashington, Dec. Id.-The Italian am ba sador today called at the state depart ment and advised Secretary Hay that Italy had joined the allies in the operations against Venezuela. He requested that Mr. Bowen assume charge of the Italian inter ests in Venezuela and the secretary grant to the attention of the governments to Italy enters the combination on the same plane as to abstention from territorial seizures as Germany and Great Britain. Failing to hear from Europe as to Mr. Bowen's proposal to arbitrate the Venezue lan troubles, Secretary Hay today ad dressed cablegrams to the United States ambassadors at London, Berlin and Rome, instructing them to call the matter again t othe attention of the governments to which they are accredited, with a view to securing an early expression of opinion from them. CLAIMS 'ITALY WAS AGAINST OASTRO Rome, Dec. i6.--The claims of Italy on Venezuela referred to by Foreign Minister Prinetti, in the chamber of deputies here yesterday, comprises losses sustained by Italian citizens dutring the recent revolu tion. Most of 7,6i8 Italian residents of Venezuela have been heavy losers. All the marble works in Venezuela, besides other industries, were in the hands of Italians, hence the aggregate of the Ital lan claims for damages is large. The instructions transmitted to Captain Orsini, commander of the Italian cruiser Giovanni Bausan, now at La Guayra, are to act in full accord with the British and German commanders in the blockade of the Venezuelan coast and any other measures which may be considered necessary in order to reach the desired object, The Italian government, however, does not an ticipate having to co-operate in a very se rious action. The Italian cruiser Elba is expected to reach La Gauyra January 4. BRITISIH AND GERMAN WARSHIPS OFF ILAND Caracas, Dec. z6.-The governor of limagaretta island reports that British and German warships are off that island. Minister Bowen yesterday politely re fused to have a monster patriotic parade pass before the United States legation. Every one here hopes that the arbitration proposed by Venezuela through Mr. Bow en and Washington will be granted. When the combined fleets seized the Venezuelan ships at La Guayra the Ger man commander delivered to the Vene h ... (Continued on Page Five.)

As the war clouds obscure the coast of the sister continent, and all eyes are straining toward the scene of strife, there are those who feel a sympathetic chord throbbing in their breasts. There are those who would give up home and all the com forts of life to aid in the defense of lib erty. Butte has always furnished its quota of men behind the guns, and now that the trouble in South America has grown to be a problem of international importance, the metropolis of Montana will not he found wanting volunteers to uphold the Monroe doctrine. P. J. Gilligan and Bert Alley have clasped hands across the blooay chasm of political differences, to raise a battalion for the preservation of the republican form of government in. V enezuela. Already the officers have been appointed for the gallant band that will strike terror to the allied forces of European despotism. WILL FREE VENEZUELA OR DIE IN ATTEMPT The night before last the patriots gath ered for their first rally around the flag of the oppressed. Gravely they shook hands and pledged themselves to preserve the freedom of their distressed brothers in South America; or die in the attempt. Bravely the little band pressed to the front, and, restitig their feet on the rail of Strobel's bar, began their first engapge ment. Fearlessly they demolished the solid array of Creme de Menthes that con fronted them. It was during the first flush of victory that the leaders of the regiment were named. P. J. Gilligan, being the originator of the heroic expedition, was unanimously elected the commander-in-chief. His speech of acceptance was so un selfish and touching in its trend, so full 'FRISCO WITHOUT A WARSHIP Casey Is Going to Sail Away and Leave the Town Unprotected. BY ASSOCIATED PRISS.
