French Official Refunew Overtures of Fi'leiidwliin. Paris, Oct. 12.—Since President Castro's return to Caracas from I^os Toques he has made repeated advances to M. Taig ny, the French charge d'affaires, for the purpose of resuming friendly intercourse, apparently intending to ignore his previ ous offensive action in refusing lo deal with the government of Franco through M. Taigny. The latter, acting on the in structions from Paris to require the withdrawal of the offensive action, de clines to meet the advances or resume intercourse with the Venezuelan govern ment until Venezuela complies with the French request lo withdraw the offensive action. The situation thus is reversed, M. Taigny now refusing to deal with Presi dent Castro instead of the Venezuelan president refusing to deal with M. Taig ny. In the meantime President Castro has made efforts to adjust matters directly with the. French Cable company without the co-operation of M. Taigny. but this was counteracted by the definite under standing arrived at between the govern ment and the comi any to the effect that no action shall be taken except through the channels of the French legation at Caracas, which is under M. Taigny. The officials here do not regard the sit uation as critical or pressing, and there fore are content to await the result of the conferences of Ambassador .Tusserand with the authorities at Washington, which are designed to determine the most effective means of dealing with the ques tion.
