with a View of Accomplishing
What Had Been Hitherto Consid
ered Impossible.
By Eiclusivr Wiro from The AsaOciatcJ Pri
London, Nov. 28 Tho Associated
Press learns that Important steps were
taker in London todav with a view
to satisfying all the ttnanci.il and dip
lomatic claims by foreign powers and
bondholders against Venezuela. It Is
maintained that If the contemplated
notion meets with itppioval, Germany
and Great Britain will have no cause
to take the vigorous, steps now con
templated. The details of the suggest
ed settlement hae not been communi
cated to the L'uropcan governments as
; ci. Their gist first wjll be made
Known to the United States govern
ment, ptobably tomorrow. The med
ium of such communication Is one of
the most impoi tant Anglo-American
lianhci s. Venezuela's propositions were
mentioned to Ambassador Choate to
la:. , but pending the result of the dl
ii U representations at Washington no
action will be taken by the embassy
towards suggesting that Venezuela be
glcn time to submit her proposals.
The new development in tho crisis,
which Is regai ded as hourly growing
more serious, is duo to the arrival in
Hut ope of a secret delegation from the
Venezuelan government empowoied to
deal with the outstanding liabilities of
that republic. Until a suitable plan
dotild be arranged it was consideied in
ffoviabl' to cotnmrnleit'B with 'h"
lorcign ministers at Caracas with
whom relations have become 10
strained Such a plan has now, in the
belief of the delegation, been arrived at
and unofficially, thiough the Anglo
American banker, the attitude of the
United States will bo ascertained.
Besides the state depaitment will be
put In a position to be able to judge
of the value of Venezuela's offer and
faith in the matter.
Castro's Plans.
It is suspected that Piesident Cas
tro has hlthei to had no oppoitunity of
taking up the question ot national
ilnaiues, but while he himself was en
gaged in suppressing the ieolutlon he
sent to Ilurope the seciel delegation
leteued to, with the view of accom
plishing what was regarded as impos
sible ol execution at Caincas. Scene y
was icgai ded to bo imperative in view
of Piesident Castio's belief that it it
had been known that Venezuela con
templated a now financial settlement
he would hae been inundated with
claims 01 eeiy dc-cilptio.i, ami tho
dealings with the bondholders would
hae presented ninny moie difficulties.
Tho details 01 the plan, which will
be communicated to the atate depait
ment are can fully gunuled, hut the
Associated Press is In a position to
announce that tho main Jeanne Is n
unification of all the outstanding gov
ernment and government guarantied
loans upon a basis of s-c entity much
gi eater than has been hitherto ofioreel.
It Is strenuously denied that the pies-i-iit
movement Ik duo to any desire on
the part ot Venezuela to spar for time
with Gieat P.iltuln and Germany and
in proot ot this it is pointed out thai
Hip beer tit mission left Venezuela, bo
foie her itlatlons with Gteat Britain
and Geimnny had assumed tho pteseiit
acute aspect.
Should the United Slate-, government
give its mat ul support, the plan will
be submitted to Auicilcau bankets.
The Venezuelan delegation believes
that It Is not too lat to secmo the
necessary facilities from Uurnpe to
btlng about a settlement sntlsfui toiy
to all parties lonceiued.

EDWARD P. CROKER

New Yoik, Nov. 2S Udward V.
Croker, chief of the fire department,
who recently was tried on a series of
charges today was declared guilty by
Commissioner Sturgis and was dis
missed from the service, the tllsmlssal
to take place on December 1.
Chief Croker was found guilty on tho
charges of "Failure to enfoice the re
quiiements ot law for properly site
guarding the Park Avenue hotel; of the
conversion of public propel ty to his pri
vate use; of conduct prejudicial to
good order and discipline in persecuting
nnd unjustly discriminating against
certain members of the uniformed force,
and of conduct unbecoming 1111 officer
and a gentleman and prejudicial to
good order and discipline."
On the chaiges of "Incompetency as
chief of tho depaitment in the manage
ment of great fires" and of "sending
"false ropart," he was acquitted.
Chief Cioker declined to make any
comment on the sentence, but It Is
known that he will fight tho matter to
the end. On being informed of Com
iitisslnne Sm-gis' action, Major Low
Issued .1 statement, sustaining the com
missioner and expressing the belief that
he had acted 'In accoi dance with law
and with the dictates of his conscience.
In his statement Mayor Low sas:
The ch.ii tor places upon tho (he com
missioner and not noon the maor, the
clutv of conducting all tiials in the fiic
depaitment, and it l.s the sworn duty of
tlii" commissioner to make his finding on
the evidence according to his conscience
It Is duo to the piovlsions of the charter
itsdt that the commissioner lias ltcen
obliged both 10 tormultte the charges,
nnd to tiv them. The circumstances in
this cise have been such that I have
thought It Incumbent upon tho maMr to
assuif! himself that the chief has had a
fail tiiil, and that eveiy oppoitunity was
given to him to make his defense in the
fullest wav. Being satisfied as am on
tin so points, theie seemed to be no re.r

Philadelphia, Nov. 2S. The raids of
vice dens last week by tho police under
Instructions from headquaiters weie
shown to be Imptoperly conducted,
when Judge Audenield toduy dis
charged Louis Zlmmeimau and nine
women captured in the wholesale
swoop of disoideily houses. The dis
charges weie on the ground that the
arrests had been Illegal. With the
judge's decision a decided set-back
was adininisti-'ied any attempt to
piosecute the remainder of cases.
Zlmmeinian was alleged to be the
pioprletor of a disreputable resort.
Two of the women weie captured

custody at another house. All weie

Washington, D. C, Nov. 28. The an
nual report of the secretin y of the navy
for the year 190-', furnishes interesting
data upon the most linpoitant depart
ment of the government service. In re
ferring to the eftoits at development of
the service, Secretary Moody says:
The task which Is employing the high
est eneigles of the navy, and leeching
the gieatest attention from the heads of
bureaus, tho commanders hi chief of
stations, tho commanding and subordin
ate officers of squadrons, divisions, and
single vessels everywhere, Is tho work of
training. To the development of tho
gieatest efficiency In oil bianthes of tho
scivlco the attention, zeal, and thought of
those In thnrge Is mainly dhtcted. This
is an era of tialnlng. The reports of tho
several buieaus me laigely made up of
criticisms upon and plaits lor tho lm
piovement of ptoscut systems of practice,
drill and insti action ;.
Tho training of apprentu c boys and
landsmen entering for tho first time the
enlisted foico ot tho navy In all that is
comprehended by the term "tho sea
habit"; tho tialnlng of seamen who
have acquired this, but need greater fa
miliarity with tho specialized work of a
modem ship of wai; the training ot ot
flceis and men of the Mtulnr roips In tho
military and naval duties of that organ
ization; tho training of ofliceis and men,
ballots and mnrines in tho essential mat
ter of marksmanship with all aims, great
and small, including machine and rapld
liie guns, In tho care and handling of ord
nance, nnd, p.n tlcularly. In "gun point

their profession, as well us In Its goneial

Junior officers In toipedo woik ot all

vessels, and the training ot more c:
pctleueed officers In tho capacity to mlng
out and utilize tho full powers of tno
vessels under their command, whether
operating singly or in squadions, appeals
to bo the impottant piesent business of
the nuvv.
Schools of Instruction.
For theso purposes schools of lnsti no
tion have been established wherever prac
ticable, among them being tho bchool lor
petty otflceis ot tho seaman blanch at
Nowpoit, and lor tho artlfU.11 branch at
the navy vuids, Poitsmouth, Va , and
New Yoik; the school at the medical mu
seum, and the torpedo school at Now
port. At the same time the work of the
naval war college has uteived Increased
attention.
It is needles', to say that t lit purpose
of all this instruction and tialnlng is to
make the navv fit lor Us ultimate de
sign ns an Instrument i?f waitnre. Tho
navy scrvts manj usotul purposes In linn's

of tho deptrtmept to employ the means
which congress has pi iced at its dis
posal to doveiop every latent power ot
material and personnel and suo that nil
bianchos ot the service opcintu In Intelli
gent harmony. This constitutes that pro
paiedness lor war which Is the Inst guai
nnty of tho ontlnu.ince of pence. It has
been icmeiiiboied at every step that tha
people ilc-lro pence and not w.n, and that
the navy should bo potent that peace may
be preserved. This piupatcduess for wur
should be complete; a partial or half-way
preparation will not Insure us dualist av

The singers are loud in their piaises
