Washington, April '. ticni '' is exhausted and ."My pa- my temper, too ' Thiit is the way Secretary Koot answered question as to the prob rtlile outcome of the controversy be tween this country and Venezuela. Tlio president is more vigorous In his utterances and is known to be nngry clear through. It Is known that in the correspond" ence tiiat bus passed between the Mate department and President Cas tro the president of the South Amer ican republic, h:u assumed an attl tud. of arrogant trueulence that has br-t 11 thi; dosimir of the American of ficials handling the case. He- has treated Secretary Hoot, Minister Rus sell and others witli a contempt that is as irritating as It ha been Insult ing. He has n.it quibbled in using words that in rome quarters might be re garded as justification for a blow, l.'ndfr these adverse circumstances the government has maintained a dignified attitude even, when the offi cial litters from this government to Minister Kussoll were intercepted and read, when null bags were rifled and cables scrutinized. While the president will transmit to Congn-.ss tho papers In the. con troversy with Venezuela, he will prob. abl not send any message. A mere letter explaining certain facts prob ably Mill speak for themselves. The president. It is known, feels that he cannot take drastic steps while Con gress is in .session. The government probably will ask Congress to auth orize a commission to Investigate the questions at Issue and then send this commission back by a squadron. Its report doubtless will be accepted, an 'Ultimatum delivered to Cantri) and enforced by a tleet. A part of the program to make Venezuela behave has been tentative ly agreed on and includes: To place a prohibition tariff upon Venezuelan coffee, the exports of which constitute 4". per cent of the entire Venezuelan foreign trade, mid fO tier cent of th- coffee is taken by the Unite,! States Exclude all importations of asphalt from Lake liermudez, the product of which ha.s been taken almost entirely by the United States. Authorize the president t" exercise the general power invested in him to take whatever steps lie may consider necessary to treat witii Venezuela in the future. Various attempts have been made by preceding administrations to effect a settlement of the American claims, but all of these attempts failed, and after a. lapse of many months Secre tary Knot felt bound again to strive to reach an agreement.
