Christmas ie ' abont bore—
Christmas tlio saddest, sweetest
time of the year. It is a period
for entertainment and family re
union, and a t ime when one re-
members liovv old one is, and
how little ho has realy accom
plished. Heaven liero belongs to
the tender world that does’nt
know the truth about Santa Claus
and beyond that world happiness
is feverish ai'.d fitful. To the
young ChrisUiias is a million
miles away, bnt as one grows
older time's sickle moves more
rapidly and finally Christinas fol
lows Christmas loo hurtidly.
The old people say that only
the world is old; that man is ever
young, and their ere space ot
yesterday is between the young
heart that yearned fur the filled
stocking and the old, feeble heart
that way never throb another
Venezuela is at war with Eng
land and Germany, all because
she owed both those nations debts
and ignored every eifort tliey
made to collect. England dont
fool with people always and so
■when nothing would do she went
down and seized the ports of
Venezuela and is collecting the
bebts from the custom receipts.
The little republic is now anxious
to arbitiate the matter and it is a
pity she did not show a disposition
to want to settle up before all her
ports and warships were in the
hands of the enemy. The U S
Las stood by these little South
American states all along but she
cannot afford to protect them in
their effort to defraud other na
tions out of just money.
According to the time honored
custom we will nol. isane Tho
Times next w^eek. And so we
wish you one and all a merry
Christmas. We have much to
. \)C tbakf'ul for and appreciate the
ITBeral piititDnngo wo /fiavo re
ceived from the people during
the year. Our circulation is as
goOD as we can expect and in the
future we shall ^ endeavor to give
you as good a paper as we can.
ACTUAL WAS EXISTS BE-
AID THE ALLIES.
Washington, Doc. 11.—No
doubt remains in the minds of
members of the government that
an actual state of war prevails be
tween England and Germany on
tho one hand, and Venezuela on
the other. The action of the
allied Eurepean powers in seizing
and sinking Venezuelan war
ships is declared in ofiicial circles
to have been taiitamoiiot to a be
ginning of hostillitiea. Consid
erable criticism of the course of
the German and English naval
commanders, for what is charac
terized in some quarters as a
■wanton act of destruction, has
been heard in Washington today,
both in the executive departments
and in congress, and many public
men are of the opinion that the
tivo European governinents have
committed an act which will meet
witli condemnation thr?nghout
this eouutrj' and aboard.
The information in regard to
the Venezuelan situation which
has come to tho stale department
■within the past 2i iiours from
Herbert W. Bowen, United States
minister in Caracas, is snmmar-
ised as follows.
Intense excitment prevails in
Caracas. President Cartro has
entered on a policy of reprisal
and has called on the Venezuelan
peofle to resist foreign - invasion
Through the efforls of Mr. Bowen
the German consul general, who
■was arrested by order of President
Castro, has been released. And
in this connection Mr. Bowen
says also; “Tho president informs
ino that he has released all Ger
man and British who were arres
ted.” The German and British
Bcjnadrons have entered LaGuayra
harbor, and a “peaeefnl” blockade
has been declared.
From the United States consul
ate, f ort of Spain, Trinidad, the
state department learns that the
Venezuelan warshipBoMyvar was
Tho latest advices from Mr.
Bowen do not show that any con
flict has taken place between the
armed forces of Vejiezuola and
thofe of the allies. In one dis
patch pays that 250 marines were
landed at La Guayrn, and these
ri;i-(!ued Dritish and German sub
jects who were believed to be in
danger and returned with them
to tlieir European ships.
It is evident tliat messages sent
from Caracas and La Guayra by
telegraph arc subject to great
delay. The latest telegram re
ceived from Mr. Bowen came to
the state department early this
morning and Vvhile ir did not con-
t-din the time of its transmission
from Caracas, it was presumed
from tho information contained
tliiit it was filed there yesterday
morning or afternoon.
All doubt as to the truth of
the report that, after capturing
the Venezuelan gunboats in La
Gnayra harbor, the allied forees
took them out to sea and sunk
tiiem, was removed this afternoon
by the receipt of the news that
confirmation of this incident had
been officially sriven in the Brit
ish house of commons today.
This action of the t'(Vo European
nations was discussed with the
greatest interest in (Government
circles, and it is evident that it
has created what is known a-
mong nations as “a painful im
It has been tho understand
here that while Geniiany and
England would adoi>t stringent
measures to compel Venezuela
to pay the claims of their subjects
conditions of actual war, with
the consequent danger of blood
shed; and the destruction of gov
ernmental and private property
would be avoided. The course of
tho allies, therefore, in scuttling
Venezuelan government had com
mitted any act of hostility, is re
garded by many members of tiie
administration as a highhandtd
and useless proceeding which, to
say the least, is surprising after
tho assurances received by Presi
dent Roosevelt from Germany
as to what that nation intended to
do in securing tho liquidation of
tho debt owed to German sub
jects by A^eneznela.
Just one year ago today the
German ambassabor in Washing-
ington lelt with Secretary Hay a

ment and Venezuela and explain
ing what Germany proposed to
do. In this memdoranduin Ger
many indicated that her course in
Venuzuela would hot extend to
actual w'ar fare or to other
coersive measures than u block
ade of the principal Venezuelan
harbors, evidently to prevent tiie
importation of foo 1 stuffs and
starve President Custro into sub
mission, or, in the evant that
this policy was not effective, to
occupy *eni);orarily different Ven
ezuelan harbor places and' levy
diUies there,m. President Roose-
accepted the statement of the
German ambassador as setting
forth all the coercive measures
that might be employed by bis

the cercmi.iny using the methodist

Silver City has a population of
3000, one third Mexicans who
live in huts of adobe, and speak
a conglomeration of Spanish and
English. Perhaps one half of the
total population of New Mexico
is Mexican & Indian and for that
reason the U S Senate Commif-.e
has reported adversely in regard
to its admission as a State and all
the papers out hero are hot about
it. A furnished room here costs
?10 per month, and board at a
Chinese restaurant $25.00 per
month. As yet I have had no
dish in which I could detect the
flavor of rats or mice. While
zero wcathc-r has prevailed all
over the Ni..rth and East, it has
not below 40 above here. Dew
is unknown, and the rain all falls
in tho summer. A great many
people come here for their health

Over at Fort Bayard, 6 miles
from here, the U S is caring for
over 200 of her soldiers, afflicted
with throat and lung troubles,
most of them vietims of the Phil-
lipine war. But aside from the
climate, not much can be said as
yet in favor of this country, for
most of it for lack of water, is a
barren waste. There are quite a
number of mines of silver and
copper in the country around here
and the la gest Turquoise mine in
the world is 12 miles a.vay. ]
have met but one North Caro
linian since coming here, and the
reason must be that they all go
back. For I belieye that where-
ever they go, unless elated by un
usual successes or engrossed in
the aquisition of wealth, they
finally find their way back to
their native hills.
