London, May 1*Y? Tlu? correspondent of '"The
Tln,?s" at Athens r-ays: "Th<? resumption of
offensive operations In l-.plrus greatly compl??
cale* the sttaatton and tends to hamper the
neu ?tuitions f??r pea??*. The evident intention
,?f th* ilr.-ek commanders is to capture the Turk?
ish positions th? r?, in order t?> ?show that they
hn?-* n?>t been defeated. In an Interview to?
day M. Pall!, the Premier, repeated his state?
ly*:.! thai humanitarian motives are responsible
for the advance In Epirus. hut he did not il-ny
UM ad?.'antaste*, which mi^ht bo hoped for from
the rapture of Prevesa and the occupation of
the iidJolnlnK Turkish t.rrttory.
" *We are still at war.' he said, 'and until an
armistice Is concluded Greece retnlns her liberty
of aeilon. We cannot allow our activity to he
confined to Thossaly, where the Turks are pr??
pond?rant The Powers have hindered us from
aetlnp In Crete, hut Greece cannot he barreil
everywhere, nor compelled to restrict her opera?
tions to a limited area.
" We have d??n<-* our het>t to obtain an armis?
tice, and until It I? accorded w> must act where
ar.,1 Whan ?ara can. If ?v,- have not already
prosecuted the war at various points and amonjt
the Islun.is ?if the .?Efrenn, It lb only be. aus,' WS
have taken Into oonsld ?ration tho sufferlm??)
to whi.'h tho Greek population might be sub?
jected."
"The Government apparently thinks that a re?
newal of the war will haslen instead of retarding
the armistice. This calculation may prove to he
correct, but it is m?>re likely that Turkey will
seize upon it as an excuse for delay in?,' the ar?
mistice, and ?ill deal a crushing blow in Thes
saly."
The correspondent of "The Times" at Conata??
tlnople says: "The ?sultan is sorely perplexed
and embarrassed by Ihe Islamic influences, mili?
tary and theoi,,?-!. a!, which ?ire unlied In vehe?
ment protests against leni.-ney to Groe,-e as de
frnudlng Turkey of the legit?mate fruit? of vic?
tory."
The correspondent adds that M. Cambon. th?
French Ambassador, addressing the French col?
ony y?.ste:-day, sp,,k" hopefully and predicted an
early restoration of normal conditions and the
conclusion ?,f pi ace.
The Constantinople correspondent of "The
Dally Telegraph" says: "Th.' Sultan, acting upon
lbs advice 't Emperor William, h?is declared
t^ If, Cambon, the French Amb?issad-T, that
1- , ann.-.t agree to granting an armistice until
the has!-* of p. ;-,c?> has beer?, deckled apon and
approved bj him."
Except for the lighting In Epirus the Tureo
Hellenls situation is virtually unch.'mg.'d froni
what it WtU yesterday It is tolerably certain
that only a few Greek troops remain in Domoko,
the bulk of Constantln'a army bavrog ?srlthdrawa

Is the seventh time the Greeks have attempted
I to advance to Janlna. ?r^'l have met with a re?
pulse which the Turks s^ve never followed up.
Evidently there is something wrong with the
Turkish forces at that place. The recent report

ty-fifth ballot of the contest that began on April
20, standing: Mallory. B8; W. P. Chlpley, 44;
Wilkinson Call, 1. Chlpley rame so near election
yesterday, lacking only three vote?, xvhile the
opposition waa divided among four candidates,
that the leaders of the forces hostile to him
sought a compromise candidate. A caucus In the
Senate chamber last night xvas the outcome.
Several ballots xvere tak?n, in xvhich the leading
can.lldati-s xvere Mnllory, Raney and Hock?>r
At 2 o'clock this morning the caucus came to an
agreement upon Mallory.
I .'pon the meeting of the Joint assembly at

Morgan, who had previously ?imported Chlpley,
and who had not yet voted, then gave his ballot
to Mallory. Representative RawtB broke his
pair, as be aald h?-- was authorized t?i ?Jo und -r
existing drcumstan?sea and threw his vote for
Mallory. This made the result a tie.
?Pandemonium prevailed for a time, the par?
tisans of both candldiites Jumping on th" d -s!--?
and chairs and wiving their arms frantically
in effort-? to make themselves heard. At length
Senator Barber was r?.gnlsed, and he changed
his vote from chipicy to Mallory Three "th rs
followed *-* 1111. The vote was vritl??! as gix*"n
aline, and President IVrrenot formally declar-d
Mallory elected.

?Senate to eighty-nine, within one ..f the full com- i
plement. Mr. Mallory'-" appearance in the Sen- I
ate will a?-ain unsettle the political balance of
?power In that ttody, The Republieans for txvo or
three weeks past have been able, with the sup?
posititious aid of Mr. Kyle. \vh?> Is nominally a
Populist, to muster exactly half the vote in the
deliberative branch. With Mr. Msllot-y-a advent
the strensth of the elementa in opposition srlll
again become preponderant, the Democrats, ill?
v?rit?s and Populists casting forty-flve vote? to
forty-four f??r the Republicans, even xvlth the un?
certain assistance of Mr. Kyle.
Mr. Mallory Is xvell knoxvn in this city, having
received his clueation at the Oeorp;etoxvn I'nl

He nettled in Penes cola in 1^74 as a lawyer, and
soon entered actively into politics, being elected
a member of the lower branch of the State Leg?
islature in 1876 and a State Senator in 1880, and
again In 1884. In lfcM he waa sent to the Na?
