SAY CASTRO WILL
NEVER GOME BACK
Venezuela's President Has
Millions (n Paris.
HE SAILS WITH DOCTORS.
While It It Given Out That H. Hae

Performed For Abscess In the Kid
nays, Vincent Gomez Assumes the
Presidency and Political Intrigue
Reigns In the Atphalt Republic
Caracas, Venezuela, Not. 25. Imme
diately it became known here today
that President CaRtro had sailed from
La (iuayra for France on the steamer
Guadeloupe Insistent rumors were
heard that he had previously remitted
millions of money to Paris and that
he would never return here.
Castro, who has ruled here as abso
lute dictator, is said to have amassed
more than $,10,0(10,000.
It is given out that he is going to
Bordeaux to undergo an operation for
abscess In the kidneys, to be perform
ed by Dr. Israel of Berlin, who Is
awaiting him in the French city.
. Many well informed persons cast
doubt on the story that Castro's trip
Is due to the need of an operation. He
is accompanied on the steamer by sev
eral members of his family and by
three surgeons Dr. Ortes, Dr. Fon
seca and Dr. Baldo. These surgeons
could perform any necessary opera
tion. President Castro dreads the sea and
has suffered severely from seasickness
even on short water trips. He has
never been out of Venezuela before.
The greatest excitement prevails in
Caracas, and political intriguing al
ready has commenced. It is thought
that the departure of President Cas
tro may open the road for the settle
ment of the Holland, American and
French disputes. Vlncente Gomez,
vice president, has assumed the presi
dency. Before sailing Castro issued
the following proclamation :
Special circumstances compel me to
leave for Europe for a short time. The
Venezuelan nation already ts on the road
to true prosperity and greatness because
of the strict fulfillment of obligations and
the sound condition of the revenues and
because of the stable peace which we en
joy and which It Is your duty to main
tain that my work may endure.
First Vice President Gomez Is constitu
tionally charged with the presidency.
Surround him and lend your co-operation
In the fulfillment of his high mission as if
It were I myself, and you will have done
BRYAN ON HIS DEFEAT.
Says Democratic Party Will Continue
Fight and Win.
Aldamas, Mexico, Nov. 25. William
J. Bryan, whose camp is pitched near
Aldamas, on the San Juan river, had a
good time hunting deer.
Discussing the causes that led to his
recent defeat, Mr. Bryan said:
Our party has bee at a disadvantage
in several ways. In-he first place, it has
been divided. The money question was
the surface question, but that division Is
practically healed, and the Democratic
party is now more united than has been
the case since 1892.
Then the Republican party has had the
advantage of having most of the large
newspapers on its side. Third, the Repub
lican party has had the support of big
in spite of these disadvantages the
Democratic party will continue the fight
and urge reforms that seem necessary. It
will continue to be an educational influ
ence until it becomes strong enough to
