the Hearts of 164 Children The busiest place that a reporter for The News saw in his rounds Thursday mdming was the head quarters of the Santa Claus Asso ciation in the county court room at the court house The room was so packed full of caijdies toys fruits fire works and such like that it was almost impos sible for one to get in The work of getting these gifts distributed is a great task but those in charge of it have performed the same thing so often that they have almost a perfect system adopted Mrs Lvddane said that the associ ation had one hundred and sixtyfour children to supply with presents The News reporter never realized how niany 164 was before the pile of toys and other gifts looked more like a supply for a thousand than it did for 164 Each childs name bxhave been regiteredand the pack ages have been arranged so th each may receive an appropriate present arid so they can be quickly delivered This is a great work and one that Winchester is pr ud of The happiness that these good people who are at the head of this movement bring into the homes of the poor of this city Christmas morning will be beyond description The citizens have responded liberally and they

although the church people have iadesomee- fforts to prevent it Nothing else Is talked of wherever men get together in all parts of the commonweaithand there is much betting on the result Burns seems to have the call among the betting men but followers ot Johnson are not shy Hot Weather at Sydney In the nig crowd at the ringside there will be seen sports from far away England and Ireland as well

Fight Jack Johnson midst of the Australian summer Its hot here at this time of the year and shirt sleeves will be the style at the fight Before the men get together in the ring the main things talked about in the cafes here are their records and the fine way In which Burns has managed to feather his nestwith the fight Win or lose the shrewd Scrapper is to get 30000 while Johnson will get only 5000 Much other cash will flow to the men in the shape of picture royalties theatrical engagements etc but in everything Burns will come in for the lions share Burns profits from the fight will be over 100000 He makes no bones of 4he fact that fighting is his business and he is In it for all he can get Johnson Anxious to Fight Johnsons supporters harp on the fact that he is so anxious tor face Burns

Into first place In the role of corruption and municipal graft After thunderbolts in the shape of sensational testimony had been exploded the trials of San Francisco ap geared tame In comparison And it is stated that the shocking develop ments are mere preliminaries arid that subsequent proceedings against additional councilmen and business men will not only startle Pittsburg but the whole country From testimony offered in court the citys council is corrupt in every sense of the word It was intimated that over three score councilmen are easy to reach and the reaching necessitated only small sums ranging from 100 to 5 Out of a mass oltestimony it was gleaned that a ma jority of the council members have been reached In the passage of one ordinance alone it was testified that sixty

desiring certain ordinances passed and during his con ferences with the councilmen Wilson and a stenographer were stationed in the next room i Tell of Conference i During these conferences Council y man Klein had a great deal to say regarding how complete councils were controlled by the accused men the detective said It was also testl fled that Klein and Brand each ac cepted 500 from Jones In payment for securing the passage of an ordi nance At a meeting held in another local t hotel Klein it was testified told Wilson how hard it was to divide money among the councilmen To illustrate ihis remarks Councilman Klein told of how 45000 had to be split between sixty councilmen This money was receiver in connection with the con struction of filter beds at the new tratlon plant- Councilman t

herents Offensive Decree Suspend ed and Negotiations Opened tCaracas Venezuela Dec 23 The end of the rule in Venezuela of Cyp riano Castro has come The dictator t who has governed this republic with a rod of Iron ever since he took forci ble possession of the yellow house in Caracas in 1899 is now openly charg ed with conspiracy to compass tne Assassination of a man he left at the head of the republic when he sailed away on Nov 23 from La Guaira nominally to secure skilled medical aid in Berlin for a malady of long standing and is today thoroughly dis creditedThe of Venezuela has cabled Its correspondents at Berlin and Paris canceling the unlimited letter of credit given to President Castro when he left Venezuela for Europe and no one in Caracas believes he will ever dare return to the capital The Castrt cabinet has been forced to resign and s new and progressive ministry has been appointed by Juan Vicente Gomez the acting president c The attempt upon the life of Gomez was frustrated by the cool nerve and courageous daring of the acting pres f dent himself Alone and unsupported he arrested the ringleaders of the conspiracy with his own hands In the adherentsindproclamation saying that not only bad he saved his own life but he had maintained the highest ideals of the chief magistrate of the republic At a conference between Acting r President Gomez and Baron Von Seckedorf the German minister In charge of the affairs of Holland it was agreed to suspend the operation of the decree prohibiting the trans shipment at Willemstad of goods des tined for Venezuela Pending the signing of a treaty between Holland and a dUly empowered Venezuelan commissioner the Dutch warships that have been patrolling the Venezuelan coast for nearly three weeks will be withdrawn GOMEZ ISSUES STATEMENT Says He Will Enforce Constitutional Guarantees to Venezuelans Caracas Dec 23There is to be a general reorganization of the govern ment The fall of President Castro leaves no obstacle in the way of set filing the various international ques tions confronting the republic Jose De Jesus Paul the former minister of foreign affairs who played a promi vent part in all Venezuelas foreign relations for the last six months has been commissioned to go to Europe to settle all outstanding disputes with foreign powers He will leave here tomorrow Senor Paul has advised the diplomatic representatves here that measures to preserve order and protect the interests of foreigners will be taken Acting President Gomez issued proclamation as follows Fellow Pa triotsI assumed charge of the pres idency of Venezuela under tho x f the constitution I undertoo- these duties without personal ambi tion From the first I endeavored to conciliate the aspirations of the peo ple with my high obligations and to this end I established in accordance with our national institutions an ad rministraton that recognized all per tonal and public guarantees Unfortunately my good intentions met with incomprehensible hinder once on the part of a few persons who called themselves intimate frlendsof General Castro Not only did these persons block the carryin- out by me of my legal duties bu l they stooped to conspiracy and elab I myl1lei Mien I personally faced the plotters t imprisoned them By so doing I saved more than my personal exist erice I maintained the manly

has been expecting a re r Tulsion of feeling In Venezuela against the administration df presi i L 7 w t dent Castro that would be manIfest- ed probably in the form Of a revolu tion has been no secret For this reason the state department has not been disposed to push the Venezuelan authorities by forceful or retaliatory measures to agree to a settlement of the various claims slow pending pre ferring to let matters take their course believing in the end that the situation would work Itself out HOLLAND IS SUSTAINED All Powers Have Agreed to Proposed Line of Action The Hague Dec 23A yellow book which has just been issued on Venezuelan affairs states that all the powers with which the Netherlands government has been in communica tion without exception have notified the government of their agreement with its line of action The Dutch governmnt has not asked for any active assistance being convinced of its own ability to bring about a settlement of the difficulty with Venezuela but will rely entirely upon its own forces Nevertheless it has received the moral support of all the powers particularly the United States which made the declaration that the Mon roe doctrine was not opposed to arm ed action on the part of the Netherlands nor even to the temporary oc cupation of Venezuelan territory Castro Ignorant of Events Berlin Dec 23Castro apparently is unaware of his downfall or the gravity of the occurrences in Venezuela Members of his suit inform all inquirers that he sends and receives no dispatches of any kind The opin ion Is steadily gaining ground here that Castros power is completely bro ken the inference being drawn from the alleged noncommunication of events by the government or his own agents that Castro does not possess any further influence in

toward the goodly land of promise was begun Far behind them was now the land of bondage with its four centuries of suffering and toil How hopeful and joyful they must have been But itwill be profitable to notice that this journey is strangely like the journey of life A time comes to all when they must go out into the world to endure trials and discourage ments to labor and suffer to hope
