The day's battle closed vfith everything In
their favor. They would have been almost cer
tain to reap tho rowordof their courage tho next
day, but orders came from Athens to stop all
oUcnslvo movements. Tho reason for this was
that the powers had assorted that thoy had in
terfered with negotiations for an armistice.
They offered to restrain the Turks If the Greeks
would keep quiet, thus gaining a truco in fact.
If not in name. It is now known that the pow
ers agreed to do what was beyond their ability
The Turks ore pushing their operations vigor
ously, while the Greeks ore crippled by the ac
tion of their Impotent mentors. The Sultan re
mains complete master of tho situation. He has
put forward claims which Europe unanimously
declares to be absurd and preposterous, but the
feeling is changing to dismay when it ia consid
ered that the Porto refuses even an armistice
until Its demands are conceded. Active inter
ference by Europe is impracticable, at 1cm t until
after long consultations. Meantime the Turks
can take Athens.
There is material for cynical satisfaction for
American observers in to-day's attitude of im
potent wrath of all tho supporters of Lord
Salisbury's policy. Thjy display the greatest
surprise and anger because the logical effects of
their action, which havo been most obvious from
the outset, now dominate the Eastern situation.
The silly idea that tho solution of tho problem
was tho punishment of the Greeks at tho hands
of the Turks has led them Into difficulties which
are far more perilous than the ante-bellum
England, however, is tho only country which
has wholly overreached hersolf. Russia, Ger
many, and Austria will settle tho problem to
alt themselves when they are ready. Thoy
will control the finances of both Turkey and
Oreeco in some form, and Great Britain will
have only a nominal part in tho arrangement.

A report reached hero this afternoon that the
Turks had captured Dhomoko, but It is not con
firmed by tho later despatches, and It is very
doubtful that tbo roport is true. It is certain,
however, that a furious battle has been fought.
The Turkish attack was aimed to break through
tho Orcek lines and capture Dhomoko, Part of
the Turkish army advanced as far as the village
of Tsouflian, but the Greek artillery drove them
out and compelled them to retreat toward

It is reported from Athens this evening that
tho Greek left wing temporarily rotlred toward

three to one, but that tho Greeks ultimately
repulsed tho attacking force.
Gen. Mavromichalis, ono of the Greek com
Banders, has been wounded.
Thu lighting ceased at half past eight o'clock
to-night. At that time the Turks had retreated
lightly from tho centre and right of tho Greek
position, and the Greeks had abandoned their

The attack upon Dhomoko was a completo
surprise here. Tho Ministers scarcely dcllovcd

"Hostilities began with an artillery action at

TUB POWERS TO PROTEST.
Turkey's Demands Unanimously Disapproved
Special Cable Deepaleh to Tins Sen.
Constantinople, May 17. Tho powors have
unanimously agreed to protest ngalnst tho do
mnnds of tho Porto that Thessaly bo ceded to
Turkoy, and also against tho demand for tho
abolition of tho capitulations in favor of Greek
subjects in Turkoy.
The representatives of tho powers havo pre
sented to the Porto a note answering the Turkish
reply to the original noto of the powers request
ing a cessation of hostilities on the part of Tur
koy pending negotiations for tho conclusion of
peaca between Turkoy and Grooco. No notice is
taken In this noto of tho Turkish demands for
Indemnity, territorial acquisitions, &c, tho Am
bassadors merely repeating their former request
for a cessation of hostilities.
Paris, May 17. Tho proas of this city con
demns tho domands nm'du by tho Ottoman Gov
ernment upon Grecco, remarking that tho
Porto's claim for indemnity is tho only point
worthy of discussion.
London, May 17. A despatch to tho Chronicle
from Athens says that tho diplomatists thcro
havo telegraphed to their governments and to
Constantinople prcsslngly requesting an Imme
diate cessation of hostilities. It adds that tho
Greek Government declares that unless thero is
a cessation to-morrow extrcmo and despcrato
steps will be taken.
Tho London Time' Constantinople corre
spondent says that tho representatives of tho
powers thero were quite unprepared for tho
noto of tho Porto in rcsponso to their request
for n cessation of hostilities.
It was not expected that tho Sultan would
capitulate so precipitately to bellicose Influences,
but Abdul llnmid regards his personal safety
and tho security of his throno as Iras
endangered by ignoring the will of Eu
rope than by resisting tho wishes of an over
whelmingly largo body of his Mohammedan sub
jects on a question appealing to their fiercest
sensibilities. This danger was evidently brought
homo to tho Sultan on Friday, for the German
and Russian En voys, v. ho most closely observe
the Sultan, wero astounded by tho peremptory
tone and the preposterous tenor of tho note.
Tho Envoys absolutclynnd unanimously warned
the Porto that serious difficulties would arlso
from the attitude ho has taken.

CURIOUS OLD COINS FOUND.
TVItSED VP IX THE BAND OW A

Perhaps the Collection or Rome Numismatist or
Revolutionary Days An Kxpert Only Can
Decide as to Their Genuineness Dales
nanslng OverCenturles ortlanr Countries.
Thoro has been, slnco" that time whereof tho
memory of man runneth not to tho contrary," a
tradition along tho shore of Long Island between
Astoria and North Boach that Capt. KIdd of pi
ratical momory suffered shipwreck about two
miles abovo Hell Gato. According to this tradi
tion tho ship was driven on the treacherous
sands, and tho Captain and bis murderous
crow barely escaped with tholr lives. But the
noxt morning they went back to tho wreck and
took off their troasura and burled It not far
away, with tho intention of roturnlng for it.
For somo unaccountablo reason the treasure
was never rocovorod, but has remained burled
ever slnco to rex the soul of many a
hunter for gold. If, Indeed, tho old
coins of different centurlos and differ
ent countries now In tho possession of Mrs.
Kato Woolsoy of Woolsoy Manor, Astoria, wore
not n part of Kldd's burled hoard, at any rate
thoy nro suro to stimulate tho narrators of tho
old traditions, and perhaps even the pirato
fortuno hunters. They wero found in tho neigh
borhood of tbo placo whero tradition has buried
tho treasure, and seem to bo genuine. If genuine,
thoy nro probably of vory great value Thoy aro
of gold and silver, of different sixes, and much
worn; ln fact, there are but two or throo whoso
Inscriptions aro leglblo.
A small boy found tho coins about a week ago.
Mrs. Woolscy has had somo mon at work on
Casino Beach, a part of her property, preparing
it for tho bathing soason.
On tho bench was a big boulder that tho mon
had turnod over. A small boy was seen around
it, and after a bit ho left, carrying something ln
bis hnt. Ono of tho men stoppod him and saw
that tho hat was full of queer old coins, most of
them silver, a faw of them gold.
When asked where ho got them ho said that
he had picked them up from the sand under
neath tho boulder. Ho refused to glvo them up
and Mrs. Woolsoy was told about iL Sho Bent
for the boy and managed to secure a part of
theui-by giving him a silvor dollar for each ono.
Tho coins rango wtdoly in date. Thoso which
sheshowed to a Sun reportor yesterday ranged
from 1120 to tho sixteenth century. Some of
thorn wero coined ln England, ono ln Prussia,
and ono In Spain. Several were carved with
what seemed to be Arablo characters, and tho
rest wero so worn that even with a glass
an unpractised eye could not mako them out.
Ono of tho best preserved coins is a vory thin
silver pieco, an Elizabethan shilling or crown,
fairly round, which boars tho date of 1501. and Is
about the size of n half-dollar. On tho ob
verse Is tho head of Queen Elizabeth, and about
its border Is tbo Inscription, so far ub could to
made out. "euzabhth: d: o:...a: vn: etiiiiu
REG!," with the date. On tho reverse ore tho
arms of England nnd tho Inscription roavt:
dev: adivtore M:MEX. This Inscription
Is so worn as to bo hardly legi
ble. Tho Inscription on the obverse is very
legible, but two letters before the G are missing.
Theso aro, of courso, an, and tbo whole when
translated will read: "Elizabeth, by Grace of
God, Queen of England, Franco, nnd Ireland."
The dnto of tho coin brings It Into tho third year
of Elizabeth's reign, or Just 140 years before
Capt. KIdd went to the scaffold ln the Execution
Tho other English co in whose Inscription can bo
read is. if genuine, themostinterestlngof tho lot,
out unless ono explanation will bold venter, Its
dato is very much at odds with history. It also is
of silvor and very thin, but what lotters remain
aro very distinct. It is about the size of a dime,
and far from round, parts of its edges having
been worn away. This Inscription was doubt
fully mndo out with tho aid of a glass:
" ehelheikkerno 1120 LNDR." Perhaps
the last letter Is il. Tho centre of tho obverse Is
so worn away as to bo illegible, and so is the
wboloof the reverse. Thonork on tho coin is
rudo nnd rough, nnd would seem to mako it be
long to a very early period.
Tho Inscription as it stands would leavo it a
coin of Ethclrcd, King of England. But tho last
Ethclred died in 1010. and this coin, the date of
vhlch is unmistakable, must have been made
sixty years oftcr the conquest, Tho only possi
ble explanation Is that at that time, 1120, there
wero still ln England powerful Saxon noblos
r ho might havo dono somo coining on their own
account. But if so, how could such a coin reach
tbo beach of Long Island
Tho most satisfactory coin is a thin silver
piece, about tbo size of a shilling. The inscrip
tion on the reverse is:
On the obverse Is a head of Duke Albert sur
rounded by tbo inscription: "alder d:q mar.-
This coin, at least, is historically correct, for
at that time Albert was tho Duko of Prussia
and styled himself tho Margrave of Branden
burg. Another coin Is undoubtedly Spanish, al
though It bears no date, and the grcator part of
tho inscription is not decipherable. It Is a thin
silver coin, about as large as a half dollar.
On tho obverse Is tho inscription: "IN
DIARVM -f Ultll'ANIARVM i CAROI.VS II JO
itANA red." This Is about tho hordcr.
In tho ccntro are the letters "Pivsvi." Bo
tween the I ana V nnd tho S nnd V aro two em
blems which look like single towers, on which
uro placed what look nslf thoy might be crowns.
On tho reverse is a shield bearing tho quartor
lngs of Aragon and Castile, tho castles and lions
rampant, and on oltber sldo of tbo shield aro
the letters M and L.
This coin seems to bo of tho rolgn of Charles
the Great before bis mad grandmother had died.
Tho only dlttlculty Is that ho was Charles I. of
Spain, not tho second. What tho Inscription on
the other sldo means has not yet been learned.
One thing is sure, It Is not tho Pope Plus VI., for
ho died In 1800. . ,
The only other coin from which anything can
bo uiado has tho Inscription: " fkrnandvh kt
kmbabet: d: o ast et reoina." This
can easily bo translated Into "Ferdi
nand and Isabella, by Grace of God,
King nnd Queen of tho ABturias." Tho coin
is smaller than tho other Spanish piece, but
1b of thin silver llko It. Of the otbor coins thoro
is one very small ono. tho slzo perhaps of a
silver three-cent piece. A nolo has boon punched
through It. On It area number of characters
that may be Arabic. Tho othor coins shown by
Mrs. Woolscy only an export will be able to
identify, and with some of them ho will have a
dinicult time. . , ,
Mrs, Woolsoy says that she can give no expla
nation of tho presence of the coins in tho Band
unless thoy can bo attributed to Capt, KIdd.
"Tho finding of coins along thu boach," said
Mrs. Woolsey yesterday, " is no novelty, Tho
oldCapt.Kldd tradition of tho burled treasure
is very strong around hero nnd money has been
found. About fifty years ago. I have been told,
my husband's grandfatherhad men nt work nlong
tho beach, One afternoon while dlgglngintho
sand they came across a big chest made of steel
and heavy wood. It was deep in tho sand und
so heavy thnt thoy could not get It up without a
derrick. They left It that night. Intending to
get It the noxt morning, but when they
reachod tho spot the choBt was gone. Thoy
Bald that thero waa quicksand there, anil
the chest must linvo sunk during the night and
Capt. Kldd's treasure was gone forever. Shortly
after that a company was formod In New York
to dig for treasure on our property, offering to
share whatever was found. Hut my huuhund's
grandfather was unwilling nnd tho scheiuo fell
through. , . ,
"About fifteen years ngo nearly half a
peck of old coins was dug up near the
same uluco, but I don't know whnt tins
become of them. I have given orders Unit tho
workmen be careful and vtatch for coins
in tho future. I don't knuw whether thoy aro
worth anything, but I am going to try to re
cover all that have been found and let an oxport
exnmlno them. In any event, if tho rolns nro
genuine, It Is Btrango to think of rinding them ln
tho borders of Greater Now York."
Then Ida variety of tho tolns. assuming that
they nro genuine, makes It hard lo believotbat
they are a pnrt of tho lost treasure of the pirato.
Had they been Spanish of seventeenth century
date, tho hypothesis might 1hi likely. Hut
where could KIdd get a Gorman coin 150 years
old when ho sailed the seas, or Spanish coins
still older I It Is most probable that if thoy nro
genuino thoy wero part of the collection of some
perhaps llevoliitlonitryliiumlsumtlst, who found
reason enough for hiding them iu the Baud.

that were mado by tho Legislature this year
went into effect.
On May 2, the first Sunday after tho amend

joined tho club got Membership card No. 1,081,

at first that the clubs were unquestionably

Lato last week they said that tho clubs were
unquestionably a schemo for the solo purpose of
