South American Republic Thinks Germans and Other Foreigners Seeking Compensation forDamiages to the Courts of Venezuela, the Courts of Venezuela. New York, Aug. 18.—A memoran dum has been delivered to the Ger man mini&ter in Caracas, Venezuela, and confidentially to the representa thes of al' the friendly powers, cables the Herald correspondent at Willemstad, Curacoa. This memo randum was an answer to the note transmitted last December by Am bassador von Holleben to the United States government The German note was not officially known to President Castro until the present time. The kaiser's govern ment in that note informed the United States of its intention to oc cupy a Ven7iielan port in order to enforce payment of the German claims President Castro's official answer to that note is regarded* by mem bers of his government as a strong document. He contends that Ger many has not respected Venezuela's right to legislate both for Vene zuelan citizens and for foreigners re siding in Venezuela. Castro insists that the claims of the Germans and other foreigners for damages during the chil wars should be presented to and decided only by Venezuelan courts. Germany maintains that satisfac tion cannot be obtained in that way, owing to the well-known and pe culiar characteristics of Venezuelan courts, which are President Castro's instruments. The kaiser's government contends that the claims should be settled by conferences between a German dip lomatic agent and the Venezuelan minister of foreign affairs, and in case of a disagreement, the matter should be referred to The Hague in ternational court of arbitration. President Castro's memorandum de clares that the German claims have been exaggerated, and contains a list of references to authorities on international law, to support the gov ernment's argument. It declares that Germany has not made a legal argument, but simply a series of demands, to the validity which Venezuela objects. In conclusion the Venezuelan mem oranduum says that the government presents to the German empire and to the friendly powers its protest against the ideas, imputations and purposes of the German note of De cember 11, and declares that this protest is necessary. It asserts that Venezuela, as an independent nation, objects to the motive of Ambassador Holleben's communication to the United States government, and considers that the note, in its political aspect and gen eral character, affects the integrity of the rights of the American hemi sphere—an integrity which ail Amer ican republics must uphold, and for the strengthening of which two in ternational congresses have met through the influence of the United States.

TROOPS CALLED OUT TO ENFORCE ORDER Watchman Who Attempts to Aid Fleeing Man Is Thrown into the Creek—Quiet Restored by the Sol diers—Price of Coal May Reach Fourteen Dollars in New York. Shenandoah, Pa., Aug. 18.—There was an outbreak Friday night right under the nose of the troops in camp and for a time it looked as though se rious trouble would occur. The dis order was the result of a mob chasing an alleged unfair workman near the Philadelphia & Reading Coal and Iron company's washery in the southeast ern part of the town. There were 50 or 60 men in the mob. As they chased the man up the railroad, throwing stones at him, the night watchman of the washery, named Anthony Flinn, tried to rescue the man. The watchman was promptly thrown into the creek running parallel with the railroad by Eflme of those leading in the chase. The crowd kept after the workman and he ran to the Reading railroad sta tion, where a company of infantry was on pro\ost dut}*. The company was immediately called into formation and attempted to hold the crowd bacfc The captain of the company exercised great patience with the crowd and prevented any serious trouble. The mob caused a large crowd to gather from all directions and word was im mediately sent to camp for reenforce ments. In nine minutes the entire Twelfth regiment and a battalion of the Eighth were on the scene. The crowd quickly scattered and three men, John Howe, Frederick Zimmer man and Matthew Bronz, who are al leged to have been participants in the assault on the watchman and the workman were arrested and taken to the town lockup. The troops were kept in the streets until a late hour. The affair created intense excitement in the town, but all is now quiet. The three men who were arrested were later given a hearing and held in $500 bail each for trial. Town Quiets Down Again. Shenandoah, Pa., Aug. 18.—This town, after a night of excitement, is again as quiet as it has been for the last two weeks. After midnight the streets were clear of all persons ex cept the sentries. The quickness with which the troops were marched into the foreign quarter, where the dis turbance occurred, opened the eyes of the people of the town. They feel that no matter what occurs, the troops will be able to promptly quell any disturbance. The raiding of farms in the Cata wissa valley by strikers continues. The sheriff has been appealed to by the farmers, and as a result the brig adier general Saturday sent the gov ernor's troop on a march through that region. Gen, Gobin Saturday officially inspected the Twelfth regi ment. None Reported for Work. Wilkesbarre, Pa., Aug. 18.—It was expected that the Warnke washery at Duryea would resume operations Saturday, and a crowd collected an ticipating trouble. Sheriff Jacobs and a large number of deputies were present, but none of the former em ployes of the washery reported for work, and no attempt was made to resume. A Victory for the Strikers. Clarksburg, W. Va., Aug. 18.—With the signing of the scale by the Mer chants' Coal company, of Tunnelton, it is thought that the miners' strike in this district has come to an end. The miners gained all they asked for. All the mines where the strike was insti tuted will probably resume work on Monday. Price of Coal Still Soaring. New York, Aug. 18.—Anthracite at $14 a ton is in prospect here, accord ing to one firm of miners and deal ers. This is, of course, contingent on a continuation of the strike for a few weeks more. While anthracite, which has been bought at $9.50 a ton wholesale, is expected to be put on the market in a week or so at $11 and $11.50 a ton retail, some of the dealers have raised the present re tail price to ten dollars a ton. A member of the firm mentioned said: "All the coal that has been hoard ed up is practically cleaned up, and those who happen to have small stocks on hand are not parting with it except to favored customers. It is impossible to fix now, a price. An thracite sells simply for what it will bring. It is a luxury, and is only bought by people who must have it, and who have the money to pay for it." The representative of another large firm said: "I went along the line of the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western railroad between Jersey City and Baonton, and found all the yards empty. There was not even coal dust in them. At other places I found barges laden with anthracite. What they carried might seem a large quantity to laymen, but it would be only a drop in the bucket as far as the needs of New York are concerned." Presidents of the coal carrying companies will not undertake to pre dict when the strike will be over. They are inclined to extend the prob able time when it will end frojn September 1 to October 1. Death of Lather B. Marsh. Middletown, N. Y., Aug. 18.—Luther R.

Crowds in Attendance—Both Branches of Congress, State Legislature and All Departments of State and City Government Represented Inter ment Woa in Family Mausoleum. Detroit, Mich., Aug. 16.—Extreme simplicity marked the funeral serv ices Friday afternoon over Senator James McMillan, who died suddenly last Sunday at his tummer home in Manchester, Mass. The services were as the dead man would ha\e wished, without ostentation or display. It had been proposed that his thou sands ot employes should march in procession behind the hearse bearing his body to the tomb that there should be a military escort and a public funeral commensurate with the senator's career. In obedience to the wishes of the family, however, this was g-iren up and the simplest of ceremonies held. Crowds in Attendance. The services began at 2:30 o'clock at the senator's late residence, 515 Jefferson avenue. The large house was crowded to its utmost capacity, and many persons were unable to gain admission. Both branches of congress, the state legislature and all departments of the htate and city government were represented at the services. Gov. A. T. Bh&s was pres ent with several of his staff. The senatorial delegation included some of the most intimate friends of the dead senator. It was made up as fol lows: Senators Hanna (O.). Foraker (O.), Kean (N. ), McComas (Md.), Allison (la.), Lodge (Mass.), Burrows (Mich.), Fairbanks (Ind.), Cockerell (Mo.) and Gallinger (N. H.).

The congression- legation and other distinguished ^rors as sembled at the Russell house at ona o'clock and proceeded to the house in a body. The Service. At 2:T.O o'clock the soft strains of Handel's "Largo" came from the mu sicians, and a hush fell over the as sembled friends as the service began. Rev. Alfred H. Barr, for long the sen ator's pastor here, read the first few verses of Psalm 96 and the last few verses of the fifteenth chapter of I. Crrinthians. Sweetly then the musicians played "Jesus. Lover of My Soul," to the music of the "Re fuge." After a moment's silence Rev. Barr made a short prayer, and the benediction ended the service. Ten derly the bearers raised the casket and carried it to the hearse. The interment was private. Followed only by the family and a very few intimates, the body was taken to Elmwood cemetery and placed in the McMillan mausoleum, which was filled with beautiful flowers. As a mark of respect the car works here, which Senator McMillan built up and developed, were closed Fri day, md in many other plants in which he was interested work stopped at the hour of the funeral for a brief time. Even on the lakes the hour was observed by the cessa tion of work. Every wheel on the Detroit and Cleveland and Detroit and Buffalo steamers stopped at 2:30 o'clock and did not move for ten minutes.
