world than any otber DOOk ?V?r wrlt
tcn. i
This statement ?U made in an ad
dres.s at th. Camden High Srhool, and
Ifr. Fmith based his assertion upon tho
belief that the book jiave to the world
an erroneoua conception of the Hfe of
the negro and condltions before the
war. He attributed much of the bitter
resentment that prevailed in the South
for so many years after the war to the
general ill feellng engendered by state
ments In Mrs. Stowe's work.
Mr. Smit also said that the genenl
condition of the negro had not im
proved since the war, and that the
colo.ed populatlon of the South was
much happier and much better taken
care of in the days of slavery.

Reasons for the Plan.
In a Joint Btatement issued from the
offlce of Representative Sulzer by Sec
retary Gardner and the New York
member. the followlng reasons were
advaneed in support of the plan to pro
vlde plera of suffl' ient length to ar?
eommodate the gieater bteamfhipe:
New York Cltv is abo.it to InauRurat"'

so ahort in whlch to lengtben the piers,

The einerb'ency alao demands that this

the exteneton aheuU not be granted by
the Beeretary of War, and It would then
be at a stage of the Beaalon of t'ongress
which would mak?. It.i ronalderatlon mor.j

This path is a rough and wlnding one,

"State of War Continues," Says
Official Note by Turkey, Re
ferring to Her South
ern Neighbor,
Beleaguered Towns Will Not
Be Revictualled, Thus De
priving Athens of Her
Strongest Reasoi;
for Holding Out.
Constantinople, Dec. 4?An off1eia4
note Issued this evening says: "An ar
mistice has been concluded with Bttl
garla, Servla and Montenegro. The
state of war with Greece continues."
Altho-gh the complete terms Of the
protocol have not been made public, It
is learned that the qtieatlon of re
victi alling the beleaguered towns was
abandoned, the government being sat
lsfled that the towns were sufllciently
supplle'' with foodstuffs to last untll
the ncluston of peace.
The only condUion mentioned in the
oflicial 'ommunfratlon to the press is
that the troops wlll remain in the posi
tions now occupied. It is understood
that no limit has been placed on the
armisthv, which may be terminatcd by
forty-eig: hours' notice by either side.
It is reported that the Turklsh and
Bulgarlan delegates will meet agaln to
niorrow at Baghtche for the purpose of
arranging the prellminaries for the
peace <onferenee.
Speculation \s rife as to the real rca
son for the failure of Greece to be :i
signatory to the arniistlce. It |g gen
erally foH that the niere rtjtctton of
the special Oreek demands did not eon
stltute a sufflcient reason for QiaaCajfl
lndependent attitude. These demands
were the capitulation of Janina and the
surrender of the Turkish troops in the
islands of Chlos anrl .Mytilene.
It is hoped that the peace negotia
lions will be eonctoded in London In
about eight daya. Thus, with the <?.i -

Londoii, Dec. 3.?SimultancousU aitb
the news of t>le armistice comea th?
repwrt frpir,- xj^ejaltantinople that the
(}ree|<s hnvr hmded troops in Thraco
and that an atta<-k has been made ??
tho rfaiiipoii forts. The report may li"
inereh based on what for some tin ??
has been inticipation. but if the repoil
is true the event i.l curiously wei!
timed. since the terms agreed to, as
they are now stated from Sofla. art
very different from those reported
froiii Constantlnople, to which Oreece
took exception.
It seemB probable now, however. that
the whole of the five nations will sign
the armistice after all, especlally as,
according to one aouree, the Greek slg
nature has not actually been refused.
but only withheld for twenty-four
hours. The Athens papera, however,
are bellicose in tone and talk of Greeca
carrying on the war singlehanded.
At first sight it would appear that
the armistice condltlona are vary mu. h
to Turkey'a detriment. Bulgarla ob
talns facilltles to feed her troopa. but
no opportunitles are afforded for re
victualling the baaieged fortreaeea. H
must be remembered, however, that
(1) there are evtdently othar conditlona
of wlilcb we have yet no lnformatton;
that (8) ae it waa Turkey who auad fon
arndatlce it waa only natural that tha
other aide ahould tnstst on the pric?
being paid, and that (8) Turkey alonej
knowa how long her besieged garriaona
can hold out.
The last consideration ia lmportant.
If the fall of the fortreaeea wtthln a
brief perlod owing to lack of auppUea
were certaln. Turkey might aa well
have agreed to tbe demand for capttu.
lation at once.
Why London Waa Salacted.
London 1b being decided upon aa the
place where the actual peace negotla
tiona are to begln. It ia difflcult to aee
why the place and tbe time mentioned
ahould be aelected, unleaa tha partles
have aot-c reason for believing that
aide by alde with the negotiationa there
may also be going on a conference of
the great powers.
It wlll be notlced that Premier Aa
quith in the Houee of Commona yeater
day said he preferred not to make a
statement in reference to the auggested
ambassadors' conference in London,
and the natural inference aeems to be
that a formal propoaal for thla con?
ference haa now been made and tha
offlcial acceptancea not yet all receivad.
It may be taken for granted that tha
proposal would not have been made un
less favorable replles were asaured, an I
thus we arrlvc at the probability that
by the end of next weck not only tlM
flve nationa will be embarked on their
epoch?maklng negotiationa in London,
but that representativea of the great
powers wlll bc engaged in the Bama
work at the aame place.
It ia reported that Auatrla now hai
300,000 troops wlthin atriking diatanc?
of the Servian frontier. and many ves
sels are aasembled in rcadineea to
tranBport the troopa across the rhen
Have and Danube.
With respect to the dlspute between
the alliea, it appeara that the Greek
government addreased laat Saturday a
dignlfled and touchlng appeal to the
governments of the allies. beseechins
them to take no action caleulated to
