HMl it Caracas That Efforts to Reach
an Agreement Will Be Discontinued
Unlets Certain Points in Draft of
First Protocol Are Changed—Gomez
Dec I ares He Must Protect the Honor
and Dignity of Venczuola.
Caracas, Jan. 29.—The negotiations
between W. !. Buchanan, the special
envoy of the United States, and the
Venezuelan government looking to a
settlement of the outstandiiiK difficul
ties between the two countries, came
to a complete deadlock on certain
points of the draft of the first proto -1
and it Is believed here that the
tiations will be completely discontln-
ved unless the United States modifies
Its contention that the claims of the
New York ami Bermudez Asphalt
compnny and the Orinoco corporation
be submitted to arbitration.
This contention President Gomez
considers unjust and out of place, be
cause Mr. Buchanan will not agree to
submit to arbitration, as preliminary
points, the quest ions of the validity of
the Judgments of the Venezuelan
courts, the awards of the mixc com
missions or the complicity of the New
York and Bermudez Asphalt company
in the Matos revolution.
President Gomez professes to be ex
tremely desirous of reaching a settle
ment with the United States, but at
the same time, he says, lie feels that
he must protect the honor and dig
nity of Venezuela.

HILL MAY ENTER CALIFORNIA
Important Purchase of Portland Ware
Portland, Ore., Jan. 29.—A deal In
I*ortland warehouse property to fhe
value of $1,500,000 has become public
by the recording of twenty-eight
deeds in which John W. Craig of Los
Angeles appears as purchaser. The
property consists of a string of niuc
fciocks lying between Twelfth and
Thirteenth streets and extending
from Hovt to Quimby streets. The
deal is not so important because of
the valuation of the property as it is
by reason of the mystery that sur
rounds the bartering which preceded
the sale. The local agent, F. Vendee,
has ottered to lease portions of the
purchase for from two to three years.
It is notable, too, that the same tier of
blocks lying one block west is the
property of the Hill railroads and
that the key lots which connect the
present purchase with the water front
are also own-3d by the Hill interests,

ALL REFER TO
LOANS OF MONEY
letters From Hundreds of Wo
men in Prisoner's Trunk,
Kansas Citf, Jtm, 29.—Charles E.
Nord, formerly a Kansas City real
estate dealer, has been placed in jail
here on a charge of passing a worth
less check. He was arrested in
Omaha on a warrant sworn out by a
grocer. Following his return to Kan
sas City the police seized Nord's
trunk and in it found several hundred
letters from women in various parts
of the country. These letters, which
were made public, invariably refer to
Nord in terms of endearment, gener
ally speak of a coming marriage and
in each case mention loans of money
alleged to have been made by the
writers to Nord.
One writer pleaded with the man
to sell his office furniture in Buffalo
and come to her and marry her. An
other letter read: "We will be happy
when we are married, but, Charles, if
you expect to keep my confidence,
you must square yourself In regard to
that check." The same writer in an
other letter said: "I just received a
notice from the First National bank
saying that the note for $1,000 was
due April 13 and must be paid."
Still another writer says: "Fortu
nately. dear boy, I have the loan at
hand that you ask. Of course you
hate to ask me for it, but I am only
too glad to do you the favor."

Owners of Republic Blame
fktfida Sor Collision.
SUIT IN FEDERAL COURT
Asserted That the Italian Veeeel Did
Not Keep a Proper Course, Had No
Sufficient Lookout, Was Proceeding
at an Immoderate Speed and Failed
to Pay Heed to Warning Whistles
of the Republic
New York, Jan. 29.—Oounst I for the
Oceanic Steam Navigation company,
owners of the White Star line steam
er Republic, filed a libel in the United
States district court against the
steamer Florida of the Lloyd-Italian
line, which ran down and sank the
Republic off Nantucket lightship.
Damages amounting to $1,500,000 for
the loss of the ship and $500,000 for
the loss of cargo and effects of the
passengers and crew were claimed.
It was asserted in the libel that the
collision was due to no fault on the
part of Captain Sealby of the Repub
lic, but wholly to the faults of the
Florida, which, it was alleged, did
not keep a proper course, had no suf
ficient lookout, did not give proper
whistles nor pay heed to the whistle
of the Republic that the Florida
failed to indicate her changes ot
helm: that she was proceeding at an
immoderate speed and did not siop
or back her engines. The assertion
was made that when the officers of
the Republic first heard the whistles
of the Florida in the fog the Repub
lie's engines were run full speed
astern and that her helm was put
aport. Shortly afterward the Florida
appeared broad off the Republic's
port side, tearing down at high speed,
and her railing hit the Republic at
right angle below amidships.
"In the effort to escape the blow.'
declared the libel, "the master put
the engines of the Republic ahead,
but the Florida came on at a high
rate of speed, apparently swinging
under a starboard helm, and crashed
head on Into the port side of the Re
public, penetrating into the engine
room." It was also asserted that at
the time of the collision the Republic
was running at reduced speed, that
the captain, two officers, a quarter
master and a seaman were on the
bridge, with two lookouts.
The coif* was asked to condemn
the Florida and order the payment of
$2,000,000 damages to the owners of
SAY CRIB WAS A FTFIETRAP
Witnesses Testify at Coroner's In
quest at Chicago.
Chicago, Jan. 29.—At the resump
tion of the inquest on the victims of
the crib fire Coroner Hoffman and
State's Attorney Wayman renewed
their investigation into the dangerous
condition of the crib prior to the fire
in whicn almost seventy lives were
lost. The testimony of many wit
nesses indicated that the crib was a
firetrap and that frequently it had
been many hours without even the
meager protection of the tug which
rescued many of the victims. Work
men testified that the floor of th«
crib had become oil soaked through
careless handling of large oil recep
The spread of the fire was declared
so rapid that it would have been im
possible to save all the employes on
the crib even though the tug had been
moored at (he crib when the fire
