Consul General and Legation Secre
tary Victims of Jealousy.
The announcement is made of the retirement
from office of Angustp F. Pulido. for twelve
v^,r«= secretary of the Venezuelan Lotion at
Washington, and of Jamb- Plmentel. Consul
General of Venezuela in New York. Their suc
cessor* are. respectively. Nicolas Velez Flat! ll m
and Gcnzalo Picon Febres.
This here announcement of changes in the
diplomatic and consular services of Venezuela
is in itself of no great interest or importance,
particularly to those familiar with the frequent
exercise by President Castro of his power of ap
pointment and removal. But the underlying
motive for these unexpected changes and the
circumstances leading up to them are interest
in?:. Briefly told, they came about through the
carrying out by SeSor Pulido and Sefior Pimentel
-,' a certain part of the Venezuelan consular
laws, mi in apparent indifference to the
ftperior and supreme law at Caracas—
Cirriano Castro.
The trouble tx»iran with a cable dispatch to the
consul general from his brother In Madrid tell
ir.p him "'" ' the two were the lucky holders of
• tirket of the Spanish lottery that had won
ll.V'.'M' He Invited Seftor Pimentel to come to
Ppain for his share of the winnings. Elated
over the {rood news, the Venezuelan official pro
ceeded to arrange for hi- trip abroad.
■Sear, the consular laws of Venezuela place the
consulates under th« jurisdiction of the lega
tions. The minister or charge d'affaires has the
authority to grant leaves of absence to consuls.
In •'-—••>• with this law SeSor Pirr.entel
communicated -with Senor Pulldo, who has been
the charge in "Washington for EOine time, asking
the necessary permission. Sefior Pulido granted
:• and SeSor Pimentel palled. leaving the con-
F3.la.ie in charge of the secretary.
He returned to New York last week and was
mrprised to find SeSor Febrea. the new ap
pointee, in charge of the consulate.* He learned
then that he had made the greatest error of his
brief official career. President Castro, it seems,
•'resented the strict adherence to the regulations
gnveminz consuls general and decided, on hear
r of Sefior PimenteTs leave of. absence, that
the latter and Sefior Pulido had actually per
■ •-■! the law to usurp his "superior" power.
Thereupon he at once appointed a new consul
peneral - : New Tork and a new charge at
SeSor Febres. who cornea from Los Andes, the
relive state of President Castro, has held a
portfolio In the latter*s Cabinet. He expects his
exequater to-day from the State Department at
"Washington. Sefior Pimentel, who has both
v en and lost, has beer, here only since last July.
Se£cr Pulldo's successor In the legation. Sefior
Yeiez. has occupied the office before tinder Presi
dent Castro. He was* formerly secretary of the
Bureau of American Republics. He severed his
last connection with the Venezuelan Legation
«r,d<?r circumstances almost as grievous as those
rcder which SeSor Pulido now retires. The
story was that President Castro ordered his re
tirement because he failed to exert sufficient in
fluence to have the last Pan-American Congress
held at Caracas.

St. Petersburg. Feb. 11.— Thn question of rela

Finland will now b- raised in the Douma by the
Octobrists. •who have decided to attack the ab
sence of control by M. Stolypln. the Russian Pre

State to the Emperor.
The Octobrists in caucus have drafted an inter
pellation to the Premier, in which it is set forth
that, according to th« fundamental laws, minis

Finland a." an Integral part of the Russian Em

the Finnish Secretary, who ranks as a minis
ter, has not observed this provision. Premier Sto
lypin will be asked what steps have been taken
to put an end to this abnormal condition. A sec
ond interpellation will ask why no measures have
been taken, in accordance with instructions issued
by the Emperor, to connect the railroad systems

be made urgent In order to forestall any action on

here last night, accompanied by the members of
his suit* from Lisbon, where he represented Ger
many at the funeral services of the late King: and
Crown Prince of Portugal, left Paris this after
noon for Berlin. This is the first time since the
Franco-Prussian War that a member of the royal
hou«=e of Prussia has come to Paris other than In
a private capacity. It was proposed several years
ago that Emperor William should visit the French
capital, but the popular feeling was too strong and
th*- idea had to b»^ abandoned.
The French press prints no comment to-day on
the presence of the young prince, but is gives de
tailed accounts of his stay, and It is generally be
»:*v«hl that the visit will have a pood influence
on the relations between France and Germany.
The only official recognition of the visit of
Prince Eitel was to provide for him an escort of
French army officers when he drove to the Army
Museum and to the Tomb of Napoleon. Several
hundred Germans and a small gathering of French
man were at the railroad station to Me the prince

"Big Six" Officers Fined $860 Each
and Sent to Ludlozc Street.
Three officers of Typographical Union No. 6
were fined $tIT»O and senieni ed to serve twenty
days in jail by Justice Bischoff in the Supreme
Court yesterday. This is the first time such
a heavy sentence in the case of a labor or
ganization for violation of an injunction has
been inflicted here. Two members of the union
wero fined $100 each.
The trouble grew out of the strike of Typo
graphical Union No. G. commonly called "Big
Six." ordered early in IJXXS against the associa
tion of employers known as the Typothetae of the
city of New York for a closed shop and an eight
hour day. Soon after the men went out the
officers of the Typothetae complained that the
strikers were intimidating employes who re
mained at work and those who took the places
of the strikers and were resorting to violence.
Justice Blanchard then granted an injunction
restraining the officers and members of "Big:
Six" from continuing these tactics.
The Typothetse asked later in 1906 that the
members of the union be punished for contempt,
alleging that they had continued thoir violence
and oppression, and cited specific acts, naming
members of the union and those whom they
were alleged to have interfered with. Justice
BischcfC appointed Adam Weiner to take testi
mony and report to the court his recommenda
tions. He held hearings up to last December.
when he reported.
The specifications, in which about twenty-five
of the members of "Big Six" are mentioned, cite
I such things as this: "On March '-2. 1900, Will
iam J. Lewis, while picketing-, assaulted Charles
-Morrow; on April 5 Raymond Bennett assaulted
Edward J. Slater," and so on through numerous
counts. The men punished by Justice BischofJ
on the findings of the referee were:
PATRICK H. M'CORIIICK. president of the unl^n
when the acts complained of -were committed, a fine
of $250 and Imprisonment for twenty days.
GEORGE "W. JACKSON", organizer, fine of $27,0 and
twenty days' imprisonment.
VINCENT J. COSTEL.LO. organizer. $-.".0 fine and
twonty day*' imprisonment.
■WILLIAM J. S. ANDERSON*, a fine of $100
THOMAS BENNETT, a flue of $100. the last t-x->
being members of the union, tut not officers.
It was announced by the officers of the union
last night that an appeal would be taken to the
higher courts. President James J. Murphy said:
"I consider the decision unjust and unfair, and
that it will be carried by us to the higher courts
goes without saying. I believe the higher courts
will not take the stand that officers of a union
as large as ours during a strike can be held re
sponsible for the acts of every individual mem
The following statement was made by A. J.
Taller, counsel of the union: "It is the first
time in this state where officers of a union were
held responsible for the acts of members of
which they had no knowledge whatever. The
question was not even raised as to whether they
had any knowledge of the alleged acts of the
two members referred to. When It is consid
ered that this union has*, a membership of eight
thousand It can be readily seen that the officers
during- a strike could not know what every in
dividual member was doing."
In his decision Justice Bi?choff said:
The questions involved have been fully di.*
cussed by the referee in the opinion tiled with
his report, and I am in accord with the reason
ing employed by him. If the solemn orders of
this court are to have any efficacy, punishment
sufficient as a deterrent should be visited upon
the respondents, whose disobedience has been
established in the present case, and I am satis
fled that the mere imposition of a fine within
the statutory limit of $250 would afford no ade
quate penalty in the case of the officers of the
respondent association, but would rather operate
as fixing a small fine at which exemption from
the embarrassing features of an injunction
might be purchased.
The order for the commitment of the three
sentenced to serve twenty days in Ludlow street
Jail will become operative after two day's notice
on the part of counsel for the Typothetae to the
counsel for the union.
The strike of the union against the Typothetce
is still on. though there have been a great many

S. B. Lewis Tells of Contractor's
Incriminating ( 'om plaint.
HarriPburgr. Perm.. Feb. 11. -The climax m the
Ftate Capitol conspiracy trial wa.* reached this
afternoon just before the commonwealth closed
when Stanford B. Lewis declared on the witness
stand that John H. Sanderson, the contractor,
one of the defendants, complained that he di<l
not want to cut down his bills because he "had
to put up a big: wad fr>r other people."
Lewis also testified that the letter which h»
produced yesterday, with the explanation that
tt was responsible for his being- indicted for con
spiracy in the Capitol prosecutions, had been
written and brought to h!m by former Auditor
General Snyder. a defendant in the present ease,
for his signature, and that in it Lewis was made
to say that he had certified to a bill for $157.
73.120 paid to the Pennsylvania Construction
Company for metallic filing cases which he had
found correct.
A? told by Lewis, Sanderson? statement was
made in the spring- of ICKXi. when the contrac
tor paid a visit to Huston's office 'n the ab
sence of the architect in Europe.
"Mr. Sanderson came to our office with bills
for which he requested architect* a certificates."
Lewis said. "The board of public grounds and
buildings had ordered a reduction in some of
these bills. I told Sanderson what instructions
had been issued, and he protested against any
cut in his bills. He eaid he 'didn't see why he
should have to lower his bills when he had to
put up a bij? wad for others.' "
After a whispered consultation among the at
torneys for the defence Mr. Gilbert cross-exam
ined the witness briefly and then he was allowed
to leave the stand. No reference was made by
Mr. Gilbert in his cross-examination to the state
ment by Lewis. After the commonwealth had
closed the defence made a motion to strike cer
tain testimony from the record, which Judge
Kunkel took under advisement.

Sees Danger in Assumption of State
Lexington. Ky . Feb. 11.— Dr. Henry Wade Rog
ers, dean of the Tale Law School, delivered^ an
address here this evening before the university on
"The Constitution and the New Federalism."
Many members of the bar and Judges of the Ken
tucky Court of Appeals listened to the address. He
■aid. in part:
We are threatened with a revival at federalism,
and with a federalism that is more extreme and
radical than the leaders of the old Federal party
ever sanctioned. The arsrument proceeds on the
assumption that the status have failed to perform
their duty properly, so that great evils have grown
up, which the states can not or will riot property
remedy, and from which we should have been free
if only the federal government had exercised the
authority and not the states.
That the states have r.ot done th»ir full duty
is con«ried: but that the federal government wouM
have %ne. better is a mere assumption, and one
I am not prepared to accept. Congress now ha*
in th« territories and the District of Columbia all
the powers which the star- government!* possess,
yet the legislation respecting the corporation*
which Congress baa enacted lias not been butter
than the legislation of the states on the «aw
(subject. The law* of Congress have not s<*eure<t
publicity cf account?, nor prevented overcapital
ization and stock watering, and no system of in

people are teking advantage of a technicality. "'
"Then la tke room nun*- for the next two emeJi
