Caracas, March I'.i President Cas tro's official organ. El Constituciotial. publishes a part of Venezuela's answer to Secretary Root's last note reiterat ing: the secretary's previous demands, for the arbitration of five American claims. These are the words of the Venezeulan minister for foreign affairs to Minister Russell: "The government of Venezuela refuses for the time be ing to take under consideration the insinuation made in your note because up to. now you have not contradicted the notes of this minislry of the dates of July 3 and September 20 last, which treat of the points which have been 'he subject of discussion in which the . reasons on which this government j founded its negative were perfectly : well defined. In view of this, the rase in question cannot be considered. The government of Venezuela would see with satisfaction the I'nited States j consider the matter terminated, the ; Interested parties always having right j of recourse to tribunals of justice of ' this republic if they deem it con venient." The paier goes on to allege that al ! most five years after the claims in , question have been arbitrated the , Americ an government comes to de mand, through its minister at Caracas. : that two of these claims shall be new fly submitted to arbitration.

The Nebraska delegation which is here trying to se cure a postponement of the populist national convention in the interest of Bryan made no progress today. Two sessions were held, at the conclusion of which a permanent organization had not been effected. The fight is still ori and unfinished. The friends of Bryan will continue their efforts when the convention reassembles.. The first contest came at the after noon session when A. M. Walling of David City, Nebraska vigorously pro tested against the manner in which the members of the committee on cre dentials were chosen. He said that no man had any right to serve on the yond tfte sea it is an Independent con- ! tinent. He obtained information con- i cernlng the ocean current which will j be invaluable to him when he makes his next attempt to attain the un- j known continent. j .Mikkelsen made use of a new idea ! of polar travel by which he will be ' able to save ninety pounds weight on the sledges. In the tedious march over ice hummocks the party frequent ly came upon open water. Mikkelsen had none of the native kayaks of ; which I.ir. Nansen mad.- such good use. , but instead he made boats when the ! occasion arose. He strapped water- ' proof tarpaulin beneath the sledges j and improvised a raft which floated.

Pitiable Ignorance or-Base Deception A woman came ii my store a few days ago and told me another curio dealer had informed h-T that there were no more "genuine In dian -Moccasins'" in existence. I almost laughed in her face. It took me about the fraction of a minute to get for her my custom house receipt showing where I had paid a 50 per cent import duly on my last shipment of real Indian Moccasins from the Black Feet Indians of Canada. Of course you can't tell what prompted the other dealer to deceive his customer in such a manner. Let us hope it was from ignorance. This will throw over the circumstance the all-covering mantle -of charity. It is true that real Indian Moccasins are hard to get. It is prac tically impossible for a novice at the business or a small dealer to get them; but if the Moccasins on sa'e at the Big Curio were not made by the Black Feet Indians themselves I will make you a present of the entire lot. That ought to convince you. You can get any size now at prices that will absolutely astonish you. You can afford to furnish every member of the family from grandpa to baby Sue with an individual pair of Moccasins. PilOeniX CVCle GO.,1 R. L BfiLKE U. S.
