When the French steamer Guade loupe, on the way to several points in the West Indies, Central America and South America, reached the French island of Guadaloupe, recently, with Cipriano Castro aboard, the authorities forbade him to land, although the steamer was to remain there ten or twelve hours. Later he «vas almost forcibly ejected from French territoi*y at Martinique. He will be shut out of Colon, in the republic of* Panama, when the steamer reaches that port. Eng land's Island of Trinidad, at which he was to reside for a short time, accord ing to the program published when he set out on his return to this side of the Atlantic, has suddenly been closed to him. By instructions just sent out from London, w r hich were unknown to Castro, and which prob ably still are unknown to him, unless he learned about them when the steamer reached Guadaloupe, the au thorities in Trinidad are directed to prevent him from landing at Port of Spain or anywhere else in Trinidad. Holland has raised the bars against him at Willemstad and every other point in the Island of Curacoo. The republic of Colombia has closed her ports to him. In this concert among the powers placing Castro under the ban, the United States has taken an active part. It was the cabled request from Sec retary Knox to London which closed Trinidad to him. England was dis posed to ignore Castro unless he did something which would seem like a menace to the peace of Venezuela, but out of friendship for the United States she has refused to let him step ashore at any of her ports in the West In dies. United States' influence is seen in a direct way in the interdict raised against him by our ward, Panama. Colombia had reason to dislike Castro while he was at Caracas, and not much persuasion by us was needed to get her to close her door against him. Prance and Holland have reasons of their own for distrusting him. His feud with the French Cable company caused France, a year or two ago to "sound" the American government as to the lengths to which she could go in disciplining Castro, and the under standing was that everything short of permanent occupation of Venezuelan territory would be permitted. But the sober second thought persuaded France that, with the Morocco dispute and other issues near home on her hands, a demonstration against Ven ezuela would be inadvisable. Holland had established a virtual blockade of pome of Venezuela's ports when Cas tro left, a few months ago. on his visit to Europe. France and Holland have as good reasons as the United States for keeping this mischief-maker out of their territory in the neighbor hood of his old realm. But what if Castro lands at La Guaira, Venezuela's leading seaport? Nobody except Venezuela can stop him from eetting off the Guadaloupe at that port. Lit Guaira is only twenty miles bv railway round the mountains from Caracas, Venezuela's capital, and only six miles as the crow flies. Just before starting on his return to this side of the Atlantic Castro boasted that he would go to Venezuela, punish his "traitorous friends." "depose the usurper," President Juan Vicente Go mez. and regain his old power. Just af ter he left Bourdeaux on his trip to this side of the water the Venezuelan government directed the officers of the steamer not to allow him to land at any of its stopping places in Vene zuela. Later on it canceled those in structions, and said it would let him land, but that if he landed he would do it at his own peril. A day or two,' ago report had it that Gomez w?> about to take a vacation, handing over power, during his absence, to one of the vice presidents. Just what Ven ezuela's attitude may be toward Cas tro at this moment would be hazard ous to say. It is entirely safe to aver, however, that some vigorous talk will be sent out from Washington to Cara cas to induce Gomez to brace up. The United States has several reasons for abolishing this disturber. Since the ad vent of the new regime in Caracas Venezuela has made its peace with the United States, France, Holland and the rest of the countries with which she was recently in trouble. All those countries are now represented at Cara cas, Venezuela has a place once more at the council board of the nations. All this would be changed if Castro should carry out his boast to overthrow his enemies and regain sway at Caracas. The United States' attempt to force the role of Philip Nolan upon Castro fe something that England, France and all of Venezuela's neighbors, European and American, fall in with readily. But suppose Castro lands at La Guaira, dares his enemies to molest him, and raises his old banner? Castro's re turn from Elba may have rather em barrassing consequences for Venezuela and several other countries, including the United Statese. HONORING HIS SERVICE. Flags hung at half mast throughout New York city today. City officials, prominent citizens, delegations of po lice and a vast array of Italian so cieties walked in a solemn funeral procession. The funeral was. that of Joseph Peirosino, lieutenant of de tectives in the New York police. He was assassinated by members of the Black Hand at Palermo, Sicily, March 12. Four thousand New York police men, city officials, tens of thousands of citizens, and all the Italian societies joined in doing honor to the dead de tective. It was an occasion that will attract interest throughout the coun try arid will be the subject of notice throughout the civilized world- Though the occasion was a tribute to the notable achievements of the dead detective, there is an incideifjal accompaniment of protest against the influences that laid him low. He came to his death while on a secret mission that it was hoped would free his adopted country of the deviltry known as the Black Hand. More than any other man in the country Lieutenant Petrosino battled against these des peradoes. His Italian birth and a singular talent for remembering faces and penetrating disguises, made him dreaded by them. He had brought many to justice, and at the time of his assassination was in pursuit of a gang that had been compelled to flee from the United States. It was also a part of his mission to effect arrangements between the United States and Italian authorities for co_operation in eliminating Black Hand outrages and the vandals who perpetrate tft^m. The problem is one that has the police authorities both coun tries infinite concern. A co-opera tive system of espionage and infor mation was planned as an aid to the solution. When forced to flee from Italy it is the habit of the criminals to ship as stokers and in other ca pacities on board American-bound steamers. By that means they gain entrance here and remain until their crimes again compel them to flee abroad. Again they ship as stokers or otherwise, and their absence again serves the purpose of these birds of passage in escaping justice. His in timate knowledge of their devious ways and his dauntless courage in pursuing them caused Lieutenant Petrosino to be marked for death. Fate fell on him at Palermo when he was close on the heels of a gang that had but recently fled from New York. It lost to this country one of its ablest and bravest detectives, one whose fearless battle with the Black Hand is the admiration of brave men the world over. The demonstration in his honor is a just tribute to his achievements and is shared in alike by the people of his adopted and of his native country. Aeroplane Almost Done. NEW YORK, April 12.—An aeroplane designed and constructed by the stu dents of the Columbia University Aero club is ne«ring completion in the boat house of Jay Gould.

The ceremony was performed at 10 o'clock last even ing upon the arrival of the bride from Seattle.

NO UNIFORMS FOR THE CONCERT BAND Six Hundred Dollars Badly Needed to Enable Band Boys to Make Good Appearance.- With one of the best musical or ganizations in the northwest, and with every open-air concert attended by thousands of interested music-lovers, the members of the Walla Walla Con cert band are forced to appear in pub lic without uniforms, the old ones having been discarded after having done duty for many an important oc casion. There are 33 musicians in the band at the present time, and with such an organization, the boys feel kindly the absence of the necessary garments to give the proper appear ance. "It will take approximately $600 to furnish the boys with uniforms," said Manager Edgar L. Smith this morn ing. "It seems almost an injustice to expect the players to supply their own uniforms when they are playing in these public, concerts for no remuner ation other than money with which to pay for the music, and this goes into the treasury of the organization. Unless the citizens manifest a •greater degree of interest in the wel fare of the band, it will be up to the players to secure their individual uni forms. Money is also needed for the erection in the city park of the $6000 band stand, for which the park com mission has planned. Some of the funds secured by the ladies of the Park club will be used for this purpose and I believe the work will be started this season, although there Is not much money in sight for financing it. "Many of the people of the city," continued Mr. Smith, "do not recog nize the importance to a city of a good band and of a proper appearance of the same. Outside of the reputation and advertising Walla Walla has se cured through the work of the rt band, we have been instrumental dur ing the past year, in bringing here some 12 or 15 families all of than be coming permanent !O c idents. Nearly al! of the players r.r« how married men. and this insures the permanencv or" the organization, they are a\erse to leaving a place where they can secure musical employment in ad dition to their regular work. But we would like to see people take more In terest in the welfare of the band." * Body Shipped to City. The body of Orlando Stetson, who died in Washtucna yesterday morning at the age of 12 years, was shipped into the city tpday and now lies 5n the undertaking parlors of Cookerly and company.

Try and try again if need be. But be sure when fou have chosen that, within the range of possibility, you are doing the work vou like the best. Let your own fitness for the work be the all-important factor in your choice. If you would rather do house work than work in a factory or office, by all means wash dishes. Do not al low any foolish feeling that people consider housework degrading to drive you to uncongenial work. Next to love, the joy of work is the greatest thing in life. I have found that the two things that give me the most satisfying happiness are converse vvith a congenial friend and the joy of doing good work. No material pos sessions have ever been able to bring me as much pleasure. It doesn't pay in the end to let the dollars dazzle. Best remember when you covet them and would sacrifice your tastes and abilities to win them that you must be at the disagreeable business of earning them four-fifths of the day and will have but one weary fifth in which to enjoy them.
