Early In the year the Loyal Legion
entered Into correspondence with the
War department at Washington with
the result that it has secured a splendid
equipment and has already established
headquarters tents and a model head
quarter encampment generally.

relics of tho unpleasantness with Spain,

President Reyes, of Columbia. In the

Venezuelan "Dictator" Lands nt Fort
de France Instead of Trinidad.
Fort de France, Martinique, April 8.
CIprlano Castro, ex-dictator of Vene
zuela, landed here from the steamer
Guadaloupo today and at once went Into
a towering rage against the State de
partments of Great Britain and the
United States, both of which have for
bidden him to land on any of their pos
sessions upon the American continent.
Hardly had Castro recovered his breath
from a vicious tirade against these two
countries, when ho wan Informed that
a message from Paris had just been re
ceived at Saint Pierre, forbidding him
to land anywhere on tho Island of Mar
tinique. This set the fiery Venezuelan
going again, and bystanders were treat
ed to a vivid description of the placo
where ho would seand all Frenchmen,
wero he the arbiter of fate.
Just what will be the next move in
the "return" of Castro to tho Western
hemisphere is not known. Venezuelan
authorities have received permission
from France to arrest him on a French
vessel, should he attempt to land from
one; and the message from Paris today
Beoms to make it evident hat he cannot
long remain on tho island of Martinique.
With American ports closed to him, the
ex-dlctator Is in a lair way to find him
self a man without a country, and to
become a wanderer upon the high sea.
