• • -JC&turally the people of Curacao, who
-•Jiaj.ic! e]ieet» long clamoring for activity
on the part of the tmtch government,
'.Are., greatly rejoiced over this evidence
I'that Holland has at last began active
:. measures against Venezuela, but the
I povevn^r of Curacao discussed the in
cJdeni as follows:
• # VTlie capture by. our warships of
coast guard and -war vessels is not to
• fee considered an unfriendly act against
tlie Venezuelans. It is merely a re
prisal against Castro's government,
whicli tends to give satisfaction for
' Jiis "a'nfricndly acts toward Holland.
The seizure of these vessels will
. fcnake It impossible for th© Venezuelan
government to carry troops or am
munition to and from.the various ports.
A communication to this effect has
been forwarded by the Dutch govern
ment to the German minister at
It Is learned from the officers of the
-Gelderland that the battleship Jacob
Van Heemskerk and the cruiser Fries
land are now off La Guaira and that
further captures may be expected at
fcny time.
These -two vessels left here on Fri
day, cleared for action, and it was be
lieved at that time that the intention
to make a forcible demonstration
«v La Guaira. The opinion is held here
that" the* Venezuelan government, -In
the absence of President Castro, will
not go no far as to fire npon the Dutch
\u25a0warships, which, in view of the fact
that "Venezuela is practically without
« navy, hold ihe Venezuelan ports at
th^ir. mercy.
The naval force of Venezuela con
sists of ,10 vessels. Of these three, the
Jiolivar, Miranda and Maragaiita, are
eun boats. The others, with the ex
ception of "the Restaurador, which was
formerly the steam yacht Atalanta, arc
Jiardly worthy of mention. They are
Siothing more than armed tugs. There
Js a 12 pound gun on the Restaurador,
tout aside from this there Is no gun in
the fleet lugger than a six pounder.
The Venezuelan forts, however, mount
t-i'iiie modern six inch Krupp guns.
Castro Leaves Paris
PARIS. Dec 13. — President Castro of
Venezuela and his party left here to
day for Cologne, where a consultation
of phyeidans will be held to determine
upon the advisability of an operation
on the president. If an operation Is
found necessary Dr. Israel probably
i>vill perform it at Berlin.
On the train today Castro said that
»s he was leaving France ho felt at
liberty to speak freely. The interview,
•while guarded, fully confirms the rep
resentations made by Castro at San
tandcr to the effect that he wanted to
_#st;ttle Venezuela's diplomatic difficul
ties, and so far as France is concerned,
Jiad already made the first steps in
that direction. He said, however, that
everything for the moment must be
subordinated to the restoration of his
While avoiding a direct question as
to what he expected to do toward set
tling Venezuela's foreign quarrels, he
xnade it clear that the resumption of
diplomatic relations with France de
pended entirely upon the settlement of
the French cable company, controversy.
"It Is incontestable," he" said,, "that
the* French cable company was against
my government in the Matos revolu
tl is specifically denied that Castro
offered a basis o.f settlement to the
government while here. A member of
his suite, however, declared that the
president's personal representative
called upon Foreign. Minister Pichon;
pointing out that this might prove' Jo
be an entering wedge for future
