PAUL, Jose Jesus, Venezuelan statesman, born in Caracas, Venezuela, in 1825" died in Washington, D. C., 7 March, 1870. He was the son of an eminent lawyer who was for many years chief justice of the supreme court. The son was educated for the legal profession, and held the office of judge, when he was chosen secretary of the house of representatives. He was soon afterward elected to a seat in that body, but did not take it, as ha was at :once appointed minister of the interior in the cabinet of President Tovar. When a revolution drove Tovar from power and placed Juan Crisostomo Falcon at the head of the government, Paul retired from public life for a time and devoted himself to agriculture. The latter did not suit his active temperament, and, believing that the people were ready for another change, he visited the different states and advised a revolution, which speedily followed in 1868. Jose Tadeo Monagas was then made president, and Paul was appointed to a judgeship, the duties of which he filled until he was sent as minister to the United States. He was a man of great firmness and much ability.
