[VENEZUELA ANG-  ��������� ERS FRANCE  Paris,  Sept.  22.���������Tlie  offensive attitude of Venezuela toward M.  Taigny, Ejrench. charge d'-affairs at Caracas, 'has roused, indignation  in   official quarters here.      Although ���������    tlie  ���������ministry has not yet taken definite"  action, .it was said  in  highest quarters that  Premier. Rouvier  would un  doubtedly     demand   that  Venezuela  .disavow" the offensive action      and  adopt a course conformed -with     the  usual     courses  of diplomatic intercourse    Venezuelan     authorities,   aie  "seeking, to     show that'their action  was directed against M. Taigny personally,' and   not  against   the French  government,   but officials do not ac:  ,cept N distinctions between M. Taigny's    personal.and official capacity^  He has high standing at the foreign  office,  where  he recently served  and  aided  Ambassador Cambon at Washington during the most'deiicate phases of the Spanish  American war negotiations.   Therefore, there it no in  tentien here to permit Venezuela to  make a scapegoat of him.    The official directly  charged   with  handling  Venezuelan   questions   explained    the  general statues     of  thc controversy  as follows:  VeneV.ueia supports the closing out  or the- French Cable Fompuny's island ��������� stations on the ground of the  decision - of Venezuelan courts.  France does not, question tjic general  rights of the courts, but maintains  that the decision of the courts contained nothing authorizing, the executive branch to seize and shut up  cable'stations. Moreover, only a  day before shutting up all land stations," Venezuela- gave assurances  that. General Velutiha, Venezuelan  minister at Paris, would take steps  o 'satisfactorily adjust the question.  Therefore M. Taigny protested, on  he ground that the court's decision  llid  not  justify   the closing  of    the  Sports leave  for portland  Amid a chorus of good wishes from  large crowd of friends who had as-  sembled on the - station- to bid tlicm  gooil by and good Mick, the Football  and Basketball teams, accompanied [ fc  llu-ir manager and trainees, and some  friends, .the party numbering altogether twenty-one, .left on the,nine  o'clock-train this morning for Portland.  - They airive at their destination tomorrow evening and commence pi ay  in the basketball tournament on Monday, and >n the football' touniay "on  Wednesday.

' 23���������Wholesale  smuggling    of tobaccos and  articles  of general   merchandise is   alleged by  Customs officers of  this  port  to be  carried  on   between   Vancouver    and  Puget  Sound   Pol ts  by  tugs engaged  in towing ore and  logs across '- thc  line. .   Beyond ��������� the  mere allegation,  the Custom  officials  have  something  to back up their opinion by evidence  of the fact that smuggling ,was being  carried. on by  a member or  members  of tho  crew  of   the   Vancouver    tug  Bermuda.      The crew   of  the -    tug  place all  the  blame" mi the,, Chinese  cook, "who,  they allege,  brought  tobacco on* board .the boat when     he  purchased supplies in T_coma.       Between twenty and twenty-live pounds  of tobacco was sei-zed on the. Bermuda by a Customs, officer acting under  instructions    from  Mr.  Frank Bowser, chief landing waiter.  1 It is known to  local Customs effi-  eials   that - a great   deaf of   tobacco  smuggling  is being carried  on       between    Sound  ports  and Vancouver  by tugs engaged     in  towing   .- ->-s  tlie line.. Much of the  tobacco that  is brought across  is. taken   noith by  thc tugs   ami   sold   to loggers       and  miners in tlie camps up the coast.  A  thriving trade is carried on  not only  in  tobaccos,   but  in   other   lines    of  merchandise,    according  to Customs  officials,    and the meichants of Van-'  couyer  are the  obvious  sufferers. '  ��������� While ��������� it is known to  the authoi i-  'ties, that  this - illicit  trade  is,,  j re-  valent,  they doubtless- find it impossible to . watch   the entire  mosquito  fleet, for tlie reason that there are  no tide    waiters     on the local Cus-  toms staff as there should be    in    a  port of this  size.   The revenue     the  Dominion "   Government    is securing  from tlie Customs of Vancouver     is  more than  sufficient to  warrant the  expenditure of a tidy sum of  money  to provide a steam Customs -launch  for  the   port.    Such   a launch  should  be off the port,  where it could spot  every craft coming   into   the   harbor  or   into   False   Creek,   and   it should  lie     on watch      all  the  time.    Tide  waiters whose duty it would lie      to  seared   ail suspe-r-ted  craft,   should be  stationed      on   the  Customs   launch,  and  the  trade of  the men bants    of  Vancouver      protected   from   illegal  raiding as is  now canied  on.  The Customs authorities ha*ve their  eye on  several  suspected  craft, and  seizures   and   tines   are   likely   to follow  their surveillance.    The alleged  smuggling  is doubtless . carried       on  without thc knowledge or consent of  the tug owners.  The Bermuda, on  which  (he -tobacco  scii/unes  was   made,  is engaged in  tho ore-carrying  trade between    the  Marble     Bay mines, Texada Island,  and Tacoma.

The general, who, although a very UhcUv as-.:a.- am* as"d-s\'ncUy'stated  good soldier, as was proved in the t*,a-. \iroy did not represent .the Unit-  South Aicrican war, is a very in-* , Mine" Woikers, but came as worlc-  significant looking num. of poor phy- mrn k1 tallc the situation over and  desired 1o find out for himself  .SKJUC.  In   Wilton   ccmeterv,  'Birmingham,  a man of     sed^tfe..appearance     -has  been*    making proposals of marriage  at   the   graves   of   recently   departed  husbands.     He   confronted   a woman  while -she  was  attending to  her late  husband's' grave  one day, and,  after  offering his sympathy,   proceoded   to  give     a concise  history  of his   life,  winding, up  with   live statement  that  lie was a widower,  and offering himself as her  second   husband. The proposal, was graciously but firmly   re-  Zee ted.       But thc  wooer was       not  daunted,  for he was seen during    the  afternoon   to  approach   three    ��������� ",n-  widows  similarly   occupied!   At  'ast,  Hie  true  card     to  condition of affairs in    re-  recruifiug for     the. army.  sec if some     settlement might lie a.r-  lived at-  If   the committee  ha.vc  given anv      other     impression than the  which     is at a     very low ebb    just j aboVC" the,, Uu?y have been ,u.actiCing  uow- the same deceptive  tactics   that have  The     general thought that perhaps   bwn SQ mucl, in ev-(*encc from the ilithe     recruiting sergeants were      not |ccmion 01-     the regrettable Indus'.nai  persuasive enough, or that perhaps  they were .somewhat rough in their  dealings  with recruits.  So the gallant officer put on an old  suit of clothes and presented hiiiv  self to a certain sergeant as a raw  rcci\uit. The sergeant merely looked  him up and down, spat onthepave-  nic-nl and remarked, "We don't want  worms in this arm*.���������we want men.  Get  out of this!'-  The general coneeided his wrath admirably, but the tstory got about and  the- unfortunate sergeant, who soon  discovered ' whom the august personage     lie addressed really wis. has  ,.r  trouble"  ATTEMPT  TO  BLOW  UP  THE  BANK FAILED.  Warsaw, Sept. 22���������An attempt  was made at noon today %to destroy,  Sheresecsky Bank. A man threw a  bomb at an open window of the  bank, but misseid his aim and the  m ssle exploded in the court yard,  dangorousiy injuring the perpetrator  of the crime,  a youn^  Jew.  It appears   that  the  outrage   was  now been     relieved of his duties    Tor, due to   the  fact  that  bank  officials  however     he left the cemetery disap-   not knowing how to deal with wouldt had  refused   to contribute  to  funds  pointed. ��������� ,      ���������' be recruits.

P'"o  hahly none  venture  in   without      at  least  cnoouiagcmcnt   from   their   legal adviser, who lakes good    arc to  protect     himself    in   any case* fr.i n  loss.   This  does not  imply   th?t   nil  lawyers  dcs-ire  litigation  to  the extent    of givu'S knowingly   poor  advice,  for  among the  legal   prof.sion  in  British Columbia are   naiiy*  i n<  of high attainmentr     and     *"���������    o-'-'l  not    under     any circumstances give  poor aihicc  willfully;   but  there  are  ollicis,   and    from  them   the   public  should he protected.    Many a man is  mulched  by his  own   lawyer,       who  considers  him  good   .*amc,  win       or  lose.     There should he  some protection  agamst  evtravagent  costs,   tax-  rd too often at rumous rates.  The letter referred to is  a** fclin.s  I have read with ;',re,a ii Iciest  the letter to Mr .Joseph Martin. ' K  O., appearing in Ihs Newt: Ad -im-1i_-  er of the .'list of August last and  endorse Iti'ly the statement that the  costs of litigation on one's province  are excessively high.  I, as you may know, have hroughl  this question up on more than one  occasion in lhc public press, : n-1 'I  gladly now again add my inhu-mrr,  in the hope that steps will -j la'-cn  to lemedy  the evils that. c\i"t  In this district most of ihe 1 ligation wc have is over mining m/Iters  arising out or disputes under' the'  Piacei Mining Act, and a perusal ,of  that act, will show that nder section Mf) a county co.ict judge and if  'he. likes, allow higjh court or supreme court costs* in any action in  the   mining  jurisdiction   tried   nefore  him.  This section  has been   n\'o-*-e.l here  ever    since  - 180(1  and  has. worked  great hardships  onjiliganl.s.

I myself go  this far  that I cannot  sec  any reason   why  there  should bc  any party and   party  costs   whatever  with the e\ceolion, of course, of disbursements    which  go   to   the crown  and   to juries   and .witnesses,       my  opinion  being. that the  old  worn out  rule ���������that solicitors should be able to  tax . against;, an-unsuccessful   litigant'  p large bill of costs���������,-which  goes into  their pockets  is not  up  to   tflic standard of ���������'modern/.'ideas  ami  improved  conditions  for   the  greatest   number.  It only     re'luires a stand and united  action  when    legislation  must       be  passed to remedy the "evil.
