Matter of Doubt.

Tho Dutch cruiser Gelderland on
Saturday morning captured tho Ven
exuelan roast-guard ship Allx out
elds Puerto Cahello. The Dutch flag
waa hoisted over the Allx oulalde of

Cabello, the forts there did not Are
upon the Gelderland.
The steamer Maracalbo, which ar
rived here Sunday from Venezuelan

Maracalbo the air was full of rumors
of a revolution In tho interior of
The seizure of the Allx was In
accordance with tho plans of the Hol
land government when instructions
were Issued to tho three Dutch war
ships now In these waters to make
a demonstration off the coast of Ven
ezuela and to capture any Venezue
lan shlpa of war or guard vessels
that they might find.
The governor of Cuaracao in dis
cussing the Incident said: "The cap
ture by our warships of conbt guard
and war vessels U not t be con
sidered an unfriendly act againut the
Venezuelans. It is merely a reprisal
against Castro's government, which
refuses to give satisfaction for his
unfriendly acts toward Holland. The
seizure of these vessels will make it
linmiHsible for the Venezuelan gov
ernment to carry troops or ammuni
tion to and from the various ports."

OUR NATIONAL CAPITAL
luteifNting KventH of thn Week In
Washington, I). C.
WaHhlngton, D. C. It Is held by
the supreme court of tho District
of Columbia that the Interior De
partment cannot require that entry
men under the timber and stone act
shall personally go upon the land
sought before making their initiative
entry. This decision was rendered
in the case of Mary S. NesH, whose
timber entry of a tract In the Rose
burg. Or., land office had been can
celled because she had not visited
the nd before filing. The court
holds that the department was with
out authority in cancelling this en
try merely on the ground "that the
applicant discovered the character of
the land from having had an expert
examine it." This decision is of far
reaching effect, and seriously affects
the new regulations recently promul
gated for the enforcement of the
timber and stone act.
The Initial movement to carry out
a recommendation of the President
was taken Saturday when Represen
tative Hull, chairman of the commit
tee on military affairs, introduced a
bill, suggested by the President, and
prepared under the direction of Mr.
Taft, to provide for a volunteer army
In time of emergency. The bill would
revise the present law to provide for
the raising of a volunteer army,
which has been described by the
President as having been placed on
the statute book piecemeal and hur
riedly. It is claimed for the bill that it is
elastic and under its provisions a
force of 2,000,000 men could be
raised as well as one of 50,000.
A reserve supply depot for differ
ent departments of the army to be
established on Corregidor Island at
the entrance to Manila Bay, to cost
$250,000, and the construction on
the Manila reservation of store
houses for the supply department of
the army at a cost of $1,250,000,
are among the important plans
which the War Department has com
pleted to facilitate the delivery of
supplies to troops in the Philippines
and providing a reserve for emergencies.
Determined that the dignity of
the United States shall no longer be
jeopardized by the failure of this
government to provide suitable
buildings for its diplomatic and con
sular representatives abroad, advo
cates of an immediate appropriation
to becln the construction or pur
chase of suitable buildings have de
cided to press the matter at the pres
ent session of congress. Representa
tive Nicholas Longworth will lead
the fight again this session, as he
did last year.
Both Houses of Congress expect
to conclude the ante-Christmas holi
day work of the session during the
present week. The date of the ad
journment for the holidays has not
been definitely determined, but most
probably it will fall on December 21.
In that event It is not expected that
any business will be done on Mon
day week because when the date be
comes known, members will leave
for their homes in such numbers it
will be impossible to maintain a quo
