TO HAGUE TRIBUNAL President Castro Accepts Pro posal Thus to Submit Pending Differences BUT IT IS CONDITIONAL Blockade Must First Bo Raised and Seized Venezuelan Fleet Restored PROPOSAL PROBABLY CAME FROM WASHINGTON In That City the Belief Is Strong That the End of the Squabble Is Near — United States Government Will Also Insist on Raising of Blockade, to Save Americans From Loss. CARACAS, Dec. 25. —President Cas tro has telegraphed from La Victoria his acceptance of-the proposal to sub mit all pending differences to the ar bitration of The Hague tribunal, sub ject to certain conditions, which in clude cessation of the blockade and the return to Venezuela of the fleet seized by the allied powers. President Castro's acceptance has been transmitted to the Washington government, from which the proposal emanated. Washington Thinks End in Sight. WASHINGTON, D. C, Dec. 25.—1f, as stated, the suggestion has come from Washington that the matter should be arbitrated at The Hague, that conclusion probably was reached at the long conference the president had with Secretary Hay yesterday afternoon. The dispatch to President Castro suggesting arbitration at The Hague must have followed that con ference. The officials here have re fused to say anything on the subject since the receipt of the proposal from the allies, or even to give out anything bearing on the terms of that proposal. The impression here tonight is that an early determination of the matter will be reached. No matter by whom the matter is arbitrated, either by the president or by The Hague tribunal, the feeling here is strong that the United States government, is the occasion arises, will insist that the existing blockade be called off while the arbitration is in progress. The presence of the block ading fleet along the Venezuelan coast is sure to be a menace to peaceful conditions, and difficulties of various kinds may arise at any time through the arbitrary action of some of the commanders of the ships of the allied fleet or the intrepidity of some skipper who may attempt to run the blockade. But the greatest objection to a con tinuance of the blockade pending arbi tration will be the loss to American shipping interests, which this govern ment does not believe should be tol erated. OBLIGATION VIOLATED. French Legislator Lifts a Voice for The Hague Tribunal. PARIS, Dec. 25. — Baron d'Estour nelles de Constant has written to For eign Minister Delcasse, notifying him that the writer will interpellate the government on the reassembling of the chamber concerning the disregard of article 27 of The Hague convention shown by the allied powers in coercing Venezuela. In his letter Baron d'Estournelles strongly supports the contention of the United States that the Venezuelan trouble should be referred to The Hague court. After pointing out that the present is just the contingency contemplated by article 27, the writer says: "The conflict rests between Vene- zuela and several of the signatories to The Hague convention, and the formal obligation that France and the twenty five other powers signed is not only being ignored, but we observe a sys tematic interdiction of The Hague court of arbitration by the European governments. An explanation has be come necessary. It cannot be objected to by the allied powers that Venezuela took no part in the conference, and as she is asking for arbitration an oc casion exists for reminding the pow ers of the obligations they signed and ratified. Nor can the reply be made that sta.tes, unlike individuals, are free not to observe their engagements and that moral obligations exist only for individuals or for the weak, as this point of view is precisely contrary to the principle that The Hague confer ence sought to secure." EXCEPTED BY THE GERMANS. One Claim That Must Be Paid Before Arbitration Begins. BERLIN. Dec. 25.—The Lokal An zieger publishes today the following statement which was evidently inspir ed by the foreign office: "The German government has ex cepted from the scope of arbitration of the Venezuelan difficulty a claim of 1,700.000 bolivars, which must be paid immediately in cash before arbitration is begun." The paper adds that it is understood that President Roosevelt's undertak ing to arbitrate involves an indirect guarantee for the payment of the sum to be awarded. Confidence has grown in government circles during the past twenty-four hours that President Roosevelt will accept the task of ar bitration. Italy's Only Condition. ROME, Dec. 25.—The only condition which Italy has attached to her accept ance of arbitration of the Venezuelan dif ficulties is that all points of dispute shall be submitted to the arbitrators so that no questions shall be left undecided and that Italian claims must be considered on an equality with those of the other powers.

C, Dec. 25.—The steamer Moana, from Australia today, brought news of an attack on the re cruiting schooner Lilly by the natives of Mallicolo, in the New Hebrides. They murdered Capt. Henry Asmos Atkinson, a Britisher, and wounded two of the Lilly's crew. The schooner was taking home na tives who had been employed in New Caledonia by French planters. One of those consigned to Mallicolo died when near there and Capt. Atkinson decided to bury the body ashore instead of at sea. When Capt. Atkinson landed he was rushed upon and his rifle taken by the blacks. He was then shot and killed with his own rifle. Some of the native crew tried to save the dead captain's body, but 1 the natives who were just landed aided those ashore and the crew fled, two of them being_ wounded as they swam back to the" schooner. The attack was the result of super stition attached to the burying of the dead body, the natives believing it nec essary to kill the whites to prevent fur ther deaths from occuring among them. The schooner Pearl was attacked on this island a few days later. She called at Espigle Bay, another part of the island, to land natives, when she wus fired upon and several of the na tive crew- were wounded.

LORENZ Surgeon Says They Have Been Placed at Too High a Figure. NEW YORK, Dec. 25.—Dr. Adolf L.O -renz, who returned to this city from Boston today, while discussing his visit to this country, said tonight: "There is one thing I want to say and that is in regard to finance. I see it reputed that I have made in this country $160,000. Now, as a matter of fact, I got one fee of $30,000 in Chi cago and in four months I have been here I have earned just $30,000. My practice at home in four months is worth that. "True, I have seen a number of pri vate patients in each of the cities I visited, but as you Americans say, in no instance have they more 'than paid the freight.' As a matter of fact, it has been the physicians of the various cities who have profited by my visit. They are my colleagues and I am glad they did, but you see I remained only two, three, four or perhaps five days. During that time I was working in the hospitals in the clinics. The private patients began to come in and they were operated upon by the local, sur geons, who had witnessed my clinics. But I am glad I came. The trip" has been the crowning success of my life. My trip here has been successful eth ically, but "not materially." Dr. Lorenz spoke gratefully of the hospitality he had received at the hands of the Americans.

LOUISVILLE, Ky., Dec. 25.—Ac cording to the Courier-Journal, Ex- Mayor A. A. Ames, of Minneapolis, is still in' the United States. He has never been to either Mexico or Canada and did not go to Boston when he left Louisville, as was announced at the 1 time by the detectives. The closest personal friend of Mayor Ames in Louisville received a letter from Mr. Ames yesterday. This friend will not tell where Mr. Ames is, but says that he is still in the United States and that he is improving 1 in health. According to the information re ceived in this letter, the detectives have been working on a cold trail in their efforts to find the missing mayor. When he left Louisville the detec tives put their faith in a clew that led them to Boston and they said that they followed him there and then lost track of him. As a matter of fact, according to the Louisville man, he went from Louis ville to Chicago and then came directly back to Louisville and was here when the detectives were looking for him in Boston. On his leaving here the sec ond time he went to his present re treat. Mrs. Ames and her children are now in New Hampshire and are not aware of the whereabouts of Mr. Ames. This same friend received a'letter from Mrs. Ames yesterday asking for her hus band's address. The fact that Mayor Ames returned to Louisville at the very time when the detectives were following him away from here is not the only instance when the mayor had the steuths "up in the air." One night Mayor Ames and the friend whe received the letter from him yes terday were in a local hotel lobby. Two Louisville detectives came in and hail ed the friend, with whom they were well acquainted. "Who are y&« after?" asked the friend. "We are looking for Mayor Ames, of Minneapolis," was the reply. "Beg pardon, gentlemen, allow me to introduce my friend, Dr. Brown, of Jeffersonville," said the friend, pre senting Mayor .\mes to the detectives. "Glad to meet you, Dr. Brown," and the two detectives grasped the hand of their quarry, but all unwittingly. The friend proposed a drink, and the party went into the hotel barroom. A half hour was spent in a jolly, so cial fashion, and the detectives took leave, saying: "Glad to have met you, Dr. Brown; good night." Little did the detectives think they had been for half an hour in the com pany of the man for whom they had been seeking, and Mayor Ames and his friend, much as they may have wanted to give the detectives the "laugh," could not inform them.

Last year the president could not spare time to come here and this year events pressed too fast about him to admit of-his coming. Some days ago Mr. Roosevelt sent a little slip of paper bearing his auto gTaph, which enabled the principal to deal more liberally with her charges than she had been able to do before. The sleds, games and dolls were more costly than usual, and the candies in greater quantity. There were two trees instead of one, and Miss Provost, the principal, read a letter from Presi dent Roosevelt 'telling the boys and girls how sorry he was that he could not be with them. A telegram was" sent to the presi dent telling him how much the chil dren appreciated his gifts, and wish ing him many more years in his pres ent position.

His EXTENSION OF GCULD SYSTEM Outlet From North Pacific Coast to the Gulf Ship- ping Points. DENVER, Col., Dec. 25.—The an nouncement comes from an apparently authoritative source that the branch of the Texas & Pacific railway from Weatherford, Tex., to Mineral Wells, Tex., is to be extended to Trinidad, Col., where connection will be made with the Denver & Rio Grande rail way, thus giving Denver another di rect road into Texas and the South. The Denver & Rio Grande will expend something like $2,000,000 dollars im proving its roadbed between Denver and Pueblo in contemplation of in creased traffic as a result of the new extension of the Texas & Pacific. The road from Weatherford to Trin idad will be about 450 miles long and will form a link which will give the Gould system its own road from New Orleans to Ogden, Utah. It will form an outlet from all of the North Pacific coast to the leading gulf shipping points and give the Gould system a new connection of its own in the West. It will also be the following out of JVIr. Gould's policy of making him self independent of the Hawley-Harri man interests in the event of an ex tension of their line, as it will, be a parallel road for Mr. Hawley's Colo rado & Southern Texas road.

Crosby says his mother was sent to England because of popular indignation against the union. He claims to have roamed the world and in one of his sea voyages asserts he learned that Thecidosis Burr, his half sister, as he calls her, was forced to walk the plank by pirates who captured the ship in which she and her husband, Joseph Alston, left Charleston for New York, in 1783. HIGHER PAY FOR GOAL MINERS Size of the Increase Will De pend Upon Market Conditions. Special to The Globe. INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., Dec. 25.—The miners are evidently expecting an in crease in wages at the coming con ference. The United Mine" Workers' Journal, their official organ, said to day: "It seems to be generally conceded by the coal trade journals that the minert. and mine workers will get an advance in wages during the coming year. Opinion, however, varies as to the amount of the advance to be given. The miners and mine workers are certainly entitled to a big advance. The size will depend upon market conditions. The best posted members should be sent to the national convention to meet the operators. They should be chosen for their knowledge of market condi tions, familiarity with competitive trade and an ability to state facts clearly and concisely." IS THIS THE PACKERS' TRUST? Incorporation of a Company in New Jersey, Lets Speculation Loose.

The capital stock of the concern is $3,000, --000, and it is backed, so it is said, by a prominent Chicago interest. It is surmised that the new enterprise is in some way associated with Nelson Morris & Co., of Chicago. The capital stock of the latter organization is also $3,000,000. It was reported that the incorpora tion of Morris & Co. under New Jersey laws was one step in the direction of the formation of the proposed packers' combination. All the Armour com panies were incorporated under the laws of New Jersey a year or two ago. This fact did not become known until recently. The ; incorporators of Morris &Co. are all associated with the Corporation Trust Company of New Jersey. They are Alfred Opdyke, Newell Lyon, Thomas J. Curran, Philip Srombery and John B. Smith. PRETENDER'S POSITION A STRONG ONE He Is Not Claiming the Throne of Morocco for His Own Occu pancy. LONDON, Dec. 26. —The correspond ent of the Times at Fez, Morocfco, de scribes the situation there as having become very serious owing to a large Increase in the number of the pretend er's followers, whom the government troops are too weak to attack. Rein forcements, amounting to 12,000 men, he says, will leave here tomorrow and an additional force of irregular cavalry has been called out. Many tribes not already in rebellion are wavering and are ready to join the rebels in the event of a serious government defeat. The pretender is fully supplied with every necessity, and has distributed his forces over a dis trict where they can be either collected or dispersed very quickly. The pre tender's position is a'very strong one. He professes not to claim the throne for himself, but a desire to overthrow the sultan on account of his European tendencies, and, if successful, the pre tender proposes that the rebels shall nominate a new sultan from some Shereefian family, who would promise to continue the war against the Chris tians.

HE IS STRUNG UP TWICE His Crime the Killing of a Policeman Who Had Tried to Arrest Dis orderly Negroes. Neither Jailer Nor Police Interfere With the Proceedings of the Mob— The Negro Is Hanged, the Rope Breaks, His Throat Is Slashed and . the Dead Body Run Up Again. PITTSBURG, Kan., Dec. 25.—Mont gomery Godley, colored, was taken from the Pittsburg jail today by a crowd of ruffians, who hanged him, cut his throat and again hanged him. The outlaws who lynched Godley said they believed the negro had deliberate ly murdered Policeman Milton Hinkle early this morning at a Christmas dance. Godley had been in jail but two hours when the mob seized him. The victim of the mob's wrath was given a short hearing in the jail yard before he was executed. He did not confess to the murder, but the lynch ers carried him three blocks from the jail without the slightest interference from the jailer or police. A rope was secured, and Godley, begging to be re leased, was hanged to a cross bar of a telephone pole. The negro struggled and the rope broke. As Godley struck the ground a man seized him by the throat. God ley, still protested his innocence and begged for mercy? % Cut His Jugular Vein. But the murderer's only answer was to draw a clasp knife across the ne gro's throat, severing the jugular vein. Again the man seized the expiring vic tim and this time hanged a corpse. The death of the policeman occurred at daylight, and by the time the bells in the church steeples were peeling forth their Christmas chimes the bloody corpse of the negro, charged with but not proved guilty of the policeman's taking off, gloated the eyes of the rabble in the streets of Pitts burg. The murder of Policeman Hinkle, as far as known to the police, was due to his attempt to subdue a number of negroes at a Christmas ball. The ball had gone on all night, and many of the men were drunk when morning came. Most of the dancers were ne groes. Unruly Dancers. Montgomery and John Godley were the most unruly of the dancers. Of ficer Hinkle requested them to be quiet. The Godley brothers answered him in an insolent manner and he tried to arrest them. They resisted and Officer Hinkle blew his whistle for help. Then he began to use his club in order to protect himself. He was holding his own against three men when a negro, said to have been Mont gomery Godley, snatched the officer's revolver from the holster and shot Hin kle behind the right ear. Hinkle died soon-afterwards. Other officers pur sued the negroes. The Godley brothers were the only two captured, and they were put in jail.
