"We deem it unjust that the traffic
manager should have arranged these

Berlin Paper Says. Castro Will Add
Army and Navy.
Merlin, Dec St The Berlin Neuite
Nachrichten yesterday printed an ar
ticle "from a well informed tource"
warning the German press against
adopting an unfriendly attitude toward
President Cattro, of Venezuela. The
writer says that Germany's business
interests should cause the newspapers
to refrain from offensive allusions,
such as "ex-cowboy" and "president
of a robber state.''
Castro, the article continues, is con
sidering a large addition to the equip
ment of both army and navy, and is
thinking of placing the orders in Ger
many The Venezuelan president is
also seeking instructors for his mili
tary academy, recently established in
Caracas, and is likely to cive prefer
ence to officers from the Germany
army All this leads the Neuste

many will strive to obtain a perma

Port of Spain, Dec. 32 Vice
President J. Vincent Gomez, to whom
General Cipriano Castro handed over
the presidency on his departure for
Europe, has established a new ftr-crn
ment in Venezuela. He has replaced
the old ministry with a new body of
men, who represent various factions in
the state and who have figured prom
inently in various ways in the coun
try political history.

Itedulo Olivares, who took a promi

Secret advices from Caracas, where

Venezuela has been in a ferment ever
since President Castro sailed, and that
the crisis was reached a few days ago
when it became necessary for Acting;

The revolutionary- faction played a
prominent part in the demonstration
against the absent president. These
were temporarily checked by a thovt
of force, and later the revolutionary
influence that threatened to sweep tho
country was overcome in a measure
by promises that could not be held
long in abeyance
The establishment of a new govern
ment in Venezuela has been expected
daily, and it is probable that it wat
the outcome of the demands which
began almost the day that Castro
sailed for Europe.
Gomez was far from secure It was
brought forcibly home to him that he
must cither withdraw from that office
or cast aside those of Castro's minis
ters who still were trying to force the
Castro rule upon the people. Appar
ently he chose the latter course
He first declared the country in a
state of defense, thereby securing con

On several other occasion when
