Thla meaaure la regarded as vexatious

claimed here, to the lack of unity of action

tains no final decision.
Speaking at , Dunfermline tonight. Sir
Henry. Camphell-Bannerman said there was
io excuse tor the government allowing
;reat Britain to "glide" Into the present
position In Venesuela. '
"It la a paltry quarrel," asserted the
speaker, "with a disrupted, distracted and
vtckety state; If there ever waa a case
for arbitration, .this la one." , . .
The . War office, he believed, had done
well, when Its Inatructlons had been timely,
cut ,,they were often wrong, and some
times were not given.
He. strongly emphasised the Importance
ot preserving the good will ot the United
Etatea and said It would require a case
ot the first Importance to Justify any ac
tion, likely to alienate the good feeling and
confidence ot tbe American people. It waa
not enough to be on the beat possible terma
or avoid actual hostilities. It waa easentlal
to the policy of Great Britain to atlmulate
intimate friendship and any course which
threatened In any degree the continuance
of that perfect feeling ot friendship or In
validated It to any extent waa a crime not
only against both nations, but against hu
.Banal Treitnaent (or France.
PARIS, Dec. 23. The Foreign office has
received President Castro's acceptance ot
the conditions of the French note. The
president aays France will receive equal
treatment with tha other powers In the
settlement and payment of claims.
It fa expected hers that tbe United States
and ether powsrs which are not resorting
to tores will receive a similar assurance
to that given to France. The official view
here" favors, first, arbitration; aecond, tbe
appointment of an International commis
sion .similar to tha commlaslona appointed
In the caaea ot Egypt and Greece. In case
the 'commission Is appointed. It Is probable
that .the French claims will be included
