President Roosevelt returned to Washington June 5, after a trip that lasted sixty-six days, the longest ever taken by a President of the United States. It covered nearly fourteen thousand miles and touched every State in the Union except New York, New Jersey, Delaware, the Southern States, and New England. He has made about three hundred speeches, and attended one hundred public dinners, breakfasts, and luncheons. There were no accidents to the train, no connections missed, and the itinerary was kept almost to the minute throughout.

It is said that the Venezuelan revolutionists, who have for over a year been fighting the government of President Castro, intend to petition the United States for recognition as belligerents. The request is based on the representation that they hold all the ports of importance in the country except La Guayra, Maracaibo, and Porto Cabello, and hold all the eastern portion of Venezuela, over which they claim to exercise powers of government. Failing to gain recognition from the United States, they intend to seek it from Great Britain.
