Whether auch ronctualcn shall be followed
Mthout further investigation In subsequent
litigation frequently depends upon the
principles of atare decisis. When such

examine and overrule Ha former decision

though the rale of law by which the de

this case It waa said, 'whether the peremp

this kind la a question of great delicacy
and one which we do not here decide.'
There has been no further discussion of
that question by counsel and we do not feel
called upon now to determine or further
consider It. It la not to be supposed that
the peremptory writ will be necesaary. The

WASHINGTON, July 22. Tho .following
statement was made public at the office ot

The original newsnntier article and those
that followed It stating that the secretary
believed a departmental employe Inst his
usefulness after live years In the aov-
smment work were so ridiculously Im
probable that they were never dignified
by a denial. . That a great mxny people
have taken these articles seriously (ins
been demonstrated by the number of In-
?ulrles, not only from Washington, but
rom all over the country.
to avoid any other misconception of the
facta In the case It may be announced on
absolute authority that no such remark
or expression was ever made by Secretary
Shaw and that the articles purporting to
represent hie views as a headsman were
made out. or wnoie ciotn.
On the contrary It may be stated with
equal authority that Secretary Shaw la
heartily In accord with civil service in
every respect. As an illustration of his
attitude on matters of personnel, may be
cited his signing yesterday a set of reg
ulations paying laborer ani other unskilled
persona under the control Of the civil
service commission, removing thereby the
last bt of patronage at the disposal of

KEEFE CAN ORDER STRIKE
'Loan-shoremen and Other Empower
Him to Act Relative to Tlenp
of Marino Industries.
CHICAGO, July 22. In th bands of one
man now rests the decision whether a tleup
of the marine Industries of the great lakes
shall be decreed. This man Is President
D. 3. Keefe of the International 'Longshore
men, Marlnemen and Transport Workers'
association. Today as the result of a strike
of tugmen which has been lo progress since
April the executive body of his association
empowered him to decide whether the 60,
000 members engaged 1n loading, unloading
and operating vessels on the lakes shall
cease work to help the tugmen In their
strike against the tug trust.
If the decision be for a fight work will be
suspended on all the Iron ore, coal and
lumber docks along the chain of lakes.
The fact that the Licensed Tugmen's as
sociation was admitted to membership In
the 'Lonahoremen's association while it al
ready had a strike bo its hands Is taken U
taken to - Indicate that it officers expect
help. The tugmen have for some time en
deavored to get the dock workers mixed up
In their strike.
With the whole matter in his hands for
settlement it is likely that Mr. Keefe will
visit Cleveland Within a week for a con
ference . with: -officials of the Great Lakes
Tow!ngicom'pany.v Upon the result ot this
meeting will largely depend the future of
the strike against the company.
Should a sympathetic Strike be ordered
at' this tint th result would be most dis
astrous to lak commerce.

Vnusual Insurgent activity in the West
Indies and on' the shores of the Caribbean
sea' are taxing th resources of the Navy
department In the tnatter of ships to look
after American interests. A cablegram

Marietta Js , proceeding to ascertain tho
facts connected with the alleged blockade
by. the Venezuelan government at Its own
port of Carupano.
An attack upon Puerto Cabello, which
lies about seventy miles west of the capital,
is expected by the government, ind th
president may go there from Barcelona In
stead of to Caracas, aa originally Intended.
The three t'nlted .States war ships on the
Venezuelan coast are kept moving with
colerlty to put In appearance at the porta
where disturbances are threatened.

( to the State department. Marietta Is to go
to Carupano to Investigate the blockading
of that port by the Venezuelan government

will proceed to the Isthmus of Panama
and keep watch. Thla shifting ot the war
ships in the Carribean partly accom
plishes a plan the Navy department for
some time has had In mind. Thla Is the
relief of the gunboat Machlas, which has
been at Colon for several months. The
officers and crew are worn out from the
continuous tropical service. The orders
of today will bring Machlas northward to
Cape Haytien, and when affaire there quiet
