The Bryan Fund Still Growing On Tuesday next, which will be just two weeks before the election, the Callfornlan will make a second remittance to the national committee of moneys raised for the Bryan campaign fund.

CARACAS, Oct. 13.—"Venezuela must from this moment and without delay fulfljl the procotol of 1904 and not pro- 1 long the Intolerable state of at-fairs created by the decree of May 14th." These were the words of the foreign minlstes of the Netherlands' note August 20th, replying to President Castro. A second note Is soon to arrive. It is understood the second note fixes November 1 as the time for the performance of certain demands which are in the nature of an ultimatum. Everybody believes that Castro, who is 111, will reply in vigorous terms. Venezuela is being prepared to resist invasion from Curacao. KANSAS CITY, MO., Oct. is. —Governor Haskell of Oklahoma arrived here this morning fur the purpose of consulting his attorney as to a suit for libel which ho is going to bring against. \V. R. Hearst. Governor Haskell said the mutter is already In the hands of his attorneys. The suit will be bused cm the Standard Oil story ns related by Hearst !ind printed in his papers, and whU'h Hiisl-.c'll S:IVH is absolutely false. Haskell addressed a signed statement to President Roosevelt of 800 * (2) The plank favoring election of senators by the vote of the people? (3) The plank making physical ! valuation the basis In determining railway i-rfies? Was President Roosevelt right when he demanded legislation to prevent government by the courts, or was Congress right when it turned down the demand? i If Roosevelt was right In that demand, is Taft now right or wrong? If President Roosevelt's policies are right, and the election of Taft is urged because he will carry out those policies, will Mr. Shortridge say what ought to be done with those Congressmen who turned down • Roosevelt's every suggestion and who are now candidates for re-election? When the government demands and receives a guarantee from nation' al banks, are not the depositors en- words, contributing another chapter to the controversy arising over the leasing of 68000 acres of Osage Indian oil lands. "I shall," says the governor, "Insist upon tho cancellation of this lease In the Interests of the citizens of our state, and shall demand that Congress take action to declare this Improvident and unjust lease void and secure for the Osage nation just and I reasonable compensation such as other owners of similar lands are receiving." | Concluding, Governor Haskell says: "The difference between the royalty you fixed for the Osage lease and the average amount received In the balance of the oil field by land owners controlling their own property IB fully equivalent to a net loss of ten thousand dollars to each and every i member of the Osage reservation." Governor Haskell adds that Guffey, Senator Depew and other rppresento- tlvoa of the Standard OH Induced tho President to take this action. I titled to the same protection?

"Tho ease is rather a mixed affair, and will lie thoroughly lnvosti«ated by tlio district attorney's office. A charge will be mod iiRainst the woman and a preliminary examination held at an early date In Delano. The evidence introduced was somewhat mixed and even Assistant District Attorney Irwin, who with Coroner McGinn, conducted the Inquest, was somewhat confused.

"If the exhibit of Kern county does not come up to expectations, or compare favorably with tho exhibits made in other counties, it is not because Tom Ortogo, a Delano resident, who Wl . aro unil hlo to mako such good ox- was with Romero and tho woman i hibits, but because we could not do when the shooting occurred, was tho j t | n t |io short period of time allotted inly eye witness o." the tragedy.
