REPUBLICS GIVE REBELS AID Secret Service Agents of Colombia Get Information Confirming Belief That These Countries are Planning Open and Simultaneous Attack on Neigh bor Now in Trouble. Washington, Aug. 17. —News has been received in this country involv ing Venezuela, Nicaragua and Ecuador in the attempt cf General Rafael Uri be-Uribe, the Colombian leader, to overthrow the gdverjteaent of Col ombia. ' A year ago it was known to the Colombian authorities that the rebels under Uribe were receiving material assistance from these republics, and recent developments and information received by Colombian secret service agents confirm the belief that these countries are preparing open and si multaneous attacks upon Colombia. The plan of attack has practically been agreed upon. Large numbers of Nicaraguans have already joined the rebels in the department of Pana ma, and with these marauding bands the United States will have to deal if it becomes necessary to land marines at Colon or Panama to protect Ameri can interests on the isthmus. Venezuela’s point of attack will nat urally be from the Colombian-Venezu elan border, where the recent battles are reported to have taken place be tween Venezuelan, regulars and an in vading army commanded by General Gonzales Valencia. He has under him 10,000 Colombian regulars, and if he has invaded Venezuelan territory with his force, war between the two repub lics is inevitable. If the present plans are carried out the rendezvoi’s of the Ecuadorian in vaders will be in the southern part of the department of Cauca, where two Colombian rebel gererals are now said to be encamped with 4.000 troops. A war among theje three republics •• juld be one of the most disastrous conflicts in the history of South Amer ica. Castro is ambitious to secure control of the isthmus of Panama. He has for the last year taken every occasion to embarrass the United States, going so i far as to invite Germany to pur chase the Marguerita island, off the coast of Venezuela, and convert it into a naval base, because he knew that this would be in conflict with the Mon roe doctrine and would involve the United States in a quarrel with Ger many. Castro desires to secure control of the isthmus, that he may hold up this government and compel it to pay an exorbitant sum for .the concession. It Is denied at the state department that there are any diplomatic efforts to secure a concession from Colombia for the old De Lesseps canal, but it Is claimed that this government is bound by treaty obligations to guarantee the neutrality of the isthmus and also protect Colombian sovereignty there. is regarded as binding against the forcible federation of Co lomtiia with Venezuela and Ecuador, as well as against the attempted seiz ure of the isthmus by any European power. It Is supposed that there has been European inspiration behind the move ments of Castro and General Uribe, as well as their natural cupidity.
