No defense was offered at the ,pre liminary hearing of Brown Hussey, who was examined last Saturday af ternoon 'before Judge Ma~nn on the charge of grand larceny. John Math eson lappeared as the complaining wit rhess and alleged that Hussey robbed him of 'considerably over $40. The testimony showed that Hussey, who only a few days before was released from the county jail, was without money the morning of the alleged rob bery and tried to borrow the price of his breakfast. Late that night he seemed to have plenty of it and spent is freely. Last Saturday Under S!heriff Stat fek went 'to Junction in response to a telegram stating that an insane man was there who should 'be placed under restraint.

They ,said the prisoner had been roaming about the hills for a number of days, apparently eating nothing and having no place of shelter. It was also said that he was believed to 'be suffering from the effects, of a protracted drunk. The latter diagno sis seemingly was correct, for since ihis confinement in jail Cotter has acted anything but like one bereft of his reason. The Very Latest.

St. Pail Aguat CASTRO ACAIN CETTING CAY ATTITUDE AGAINST FRENCH CABLE COMPANY MENACING. FRANCE' IS NOW WAITINC Impression Growing That Presence of Warships in Venezuelan Waters Would Help Matters. Paris, March 26.-An official dis patch from Caracas, Venezuela, says President Castro, who was absent from the capital during the recent supposed a'melioration of the situa tion, has returned and has manifested strong hostility against American and French interests. His attitude, it is added, is particularly menacing againzt the French Cable company. It is premature to say what steps France will take, as the information has just been received and the offi cials 'have not had an opportunity to consider it. However, is it likely that their action will depend upon Presi dent Castro putting his menaces into effect by overt acts against the com pany or the forfeiture of its conces sions. No orders for warships to be held in readiness have yet been issued or are contemplated for the present, ,but there seems to be a growing im pression in official quarters that the presence of a warship in Venezuelan waters might exercise a salutary in fluence. The official dispatch adds that Pres ident Castro's declination to arbitrate the American demands was acoompa nied by .a refusal to hold any con versation on the subject. The French Cable company has received advices practically to the same effect. These indicate that President Castro's influ ence will probably cause the court to render final judgment upon the caible company's concession early next week. It is the unofficial opinion that the attitude of President Castro against both American and French in terests makes the moment opportune for some exch'ange of communications CORMICK'S rmiks NEW GOODS I SBASEMENT For our Basement FOR BARGAINS Arriving Daily Just While They Last Wednesday, March 29 SWISS EMBROIDERY at IOc per yard These embroideries are real Swiss goods, worth up to 50c per yard.

Washington, March 26.-In a brief cablegram received at the state de partment yesterday from Mr. Bowen, dated at Caracas, the minister refers to the action taken in the case of the French Cable company, not, however, indicating that it has been postponed, but rather that it is still pending on the court's docket ready for consider ation, and that the matter is in a chronic rather .than an acute phase.
