RELATIONS ARE 8TRAINED
Venezuelan Consul Takes Refuae In
Relations bctweon Venezuela and the
Island of Curacao are strained to the
breaking point, following a aeries of
what the residents of Curacao regard
as antagonistic actions on the part of
President Castro directed against
themselves and the Dutch govern
ment, mobs gathered In this capital
and expiessed tliulr resentment In an
attack on the home of a Venezuelan
who had published statements deroga
tory to the residents of the Island.
They surrounded the German con
sulate, where the Venezuelan consul
hud taken refuge, and compelled the
ordering out of armed troops so that
the consul might bo piotected from
The demonstration before the resi
dence of tho Venezuelan consul,
Honor Lopez, occurred late at night
and, although 110 actual attack was
made, It Is said that two shots were
flrc.d from the consul's house, no one
being Injured. Prior to this a mob,
numbering about 1,000, gathered In
front of the dwelling of a Venezuelan
resident who, it Is alleged, bad In
sulted Curacao In Venezuelan papers.
They broke down the doors with
stones and, seizing the man, com
pelled him to sign a paper which set
forth nn elaborate excuse for the pub
lication of the statements with which
he was charged. The leaders also
forced him to make a public apology
from the balcony of his home, while
tho crowd below hooted In accompani
ment. Furthermore, members of the
man's family were compelled to play
the Dutch national hymn, while the
people below shouted: "Down with
Castro; long may Wllhelmlna live."
The police were unable to copo
with tho demonstrators and their ef
forts in this direction were somewhat
fooble. No bodily harm was done to
anyone, but tho shouting and cheer
ing continued for a time.
The next morning It was noted that
there was no shield on the building
occupied by tho Venezuelan consul.
It is not known whether It was re
moved by the Venezuelans or torn
down by Curacoa natives. There was
another gathering of the mob and
when It was learned that the mob had
proceeded to tho Venezuelan con
sulate this building was surrounded
by an over-increasing mob. The at
torney general made an effort to quiet
tho populace, which was becoming
more and more excited all the time.
A small military force attempted to
check the demonstration, but for a
time that was Impossible. It became
necessary to call out additional troops,
who proceeded to patrol the streets.
Consul Lopez was conducted to the
Venezuelan consulato by an armed
force, where he gathered up bis be
longings and was escorted to his
home. Tho troops that accompanied
him were compelled to force them
selves through a large crowd. Au
armed guard was left to protect tho
Venezuelan consulate and
guard was stationed at the consul's
residence. Other troops continued pa
trolling tho city.
