today, and is satisfied with Its spirit. A

Castro Says So, Xot Having Rejected
CARACAS, Jan. 1. There have been
persistent rumors in official circles and
generally throughout this city since yes
terday that President Castro had refused
to agree to the proposals of the .allies to
refer the Venezuelan issues to The Hague.
The correspondent of the Associated Pres
saw the President of Venezuela for half
an hour this afternoon. It is not true that
the President has declined the proposals
of the powers; the Chief Executive de
clares he wants only fair treatment. It
was clear from what President Castro
said at the interview that he believes it
would be very easy to reach a full set
tlement of the entire controversy. Presi
dent Castro said to the .correspondent:
"If a settlement is not reached, it will
be because a settlement forms no part
of the plan of the allies. In this case the
prolongation of the present situation
would be disastrous for all concerned.
The solution of the present difficulty de

likely of acceptance. Communications on

young head of the corporation, is quoted
"The plan is being worked on, but It

MAX NORDAU LOOKS AHEAD.
Predicts Strategic Between Anglo
Saxon and Russian in Asia.
VIENNA, Jan. 1. In the course of an
exhaustive review of the history of the
world, contributed to the Neue Freie
Presse by Max Nordau, the writer deeply
deplores the growth of military imperial
ism In the United States, and says that
by the admission ot the spirit of militar
ism, which was formerly rigorously ex
cluded, America is raising obstacles to
the entrance of emigrants whose only
capital Is their strong working arms.
Speaking of the future of the New
World, Nordau says the opening of the
Panama Canal under American owner
ship will mark the beginning of a new
epoch. The tragic stage of tho world's
history, which In ancient times centered
in the Mediterranean, and .which moved in
the naval age to the Atlantic, will then
be transferred to the Pacific Ocean. At
first the Anglo-Saxon element will seek
to drive out the German and French flags
floating over single points In the Pacific
Ocean, then the struggle will be carried
furt'ner to the Asiatic coast, where Anglo
Saxons and Russians will have to decide
the momentous world question of whether
Eastern and Southern Asia shall remain
British or Russian. To this forecast
"One can only imagine with horror what
siich a gigantic struggle of nations and
races will signify."

into subjection by a policeman.
The general Impression was that an at
tempt had been made to murder the girl,
and had It not been for the policeman
into whose hands Goodman fell he would
have fared badly: The officer had to fight
off the pursuers, and at the same time

'with the knife which had been used on
Mtes Matthews' hand. With much diffi
culty Goodman was taken to the station
house, where he said he intended to cut
off the girl's hand for the rings she wore.
