LONDON, Oct. 7. With England

European powers In a Joint note to
Turkey and tho Balkan states, urg
ing Immediate settlement of difficul
ties, the outlook for an amicable ad
justment of tho main points at Issue
without war is greatly Improved.
The outstanding features of the

Turkey Is advised to give Mace

the way of self government.
The Ilalkan states are warned that
the powers will not permit them to

Government officials today resent
the report that Great Britain's pro

of the other powers to prevent war
tare. Officials of the foreign office
Insist that England merlyc suggested
csanges in tne wormng or tne joint
note. These changes, which have
been adopted, diplomats here say,
have transformed tho document from
a peremptory demand Into a polite
suggestion that Immediate reforms
are desirable. England, they assert,
is more than anxious to mollify the
Turks since Kalmll Pasha, who Is es
pecially friendly to Great Britain,
has been appointed chief adviser to
LONDON, Oct. 7. Belief that the
efforts of the powers to prevent war
in the Balkans would be successful
was expressed In a despatch received

despatch indicated that Turkish of

tunity Pneblans have had to bee Now

nnd they liked him in this nllc. In

Wilson was olected that the working

Edward Clnrk of Cincinnati, former
business ngent in that city for the '

forty-eight members of that orgnni-

transporting dynamite, changed his
plen from not guilty to guilty nL tbi

When court opened it waj noticed
that ho sat beside Marshal Schmidt'
and several of the other accused men
attempted to ascertain the cans. AH?
efforts, however, of the ironworkers
to communicate with, Clark were
blocked by Schmidt.

Although, the other defendants
were greatly surprised at ClarkVnc
tion, they expressed the belief that
it resulted from Miller's denunciation
of Clark Saturday. Miller charged
that Clark had supervised twelve
dynnmitings in and near Cleveland.
Most of the defendants appeared
io be hit hard by Clark's decision to
change his plea. They eye each
other nervously and seemed anxious
for a chance to talk with Clark. All
such attempts, however, were frus
trated by Miller and Marshal
Miller todoay appeared to be
fatigued from his efforts of Friday
and Saturday. He told ot clippings
which ho alleges certain officials sent
