presumably for use against the American
forces or the railroad.
' I,eut. liong and his men were sur
rounded by a mob of relxls, armed with
rifles and machetes. The rebels opened
fire on tho marines and tho fire was
promptly returned. Thirteen of the rebels
were killed instantly and a greater num

stated that all of the wounded on tho
American nide will recover. Theuamesof
the wounded were not forwarded to the
Department by Admiral Southerland."
The dynamite botnlw were destroyed,
Admiral Southerland further reports
that the reliels lost more than forty dead
In the assault upon the Barranca. Twenty
of their numler are known to l seriously
wounded and fourteen were made pris

dislodged from their position only after
the marines and bluejackets had actually
reached the top of the hill, They then
fled into Masaya. where the (Jove rnment
troops of Nicaragua met them and un
other serious engagement took place. It
instated that the Government, forces lost
200 dead at Masaya, while the number of
rebels killed is thought to le much greater.
One company of murines has been
stationed nt Masaya to prsrve order

Tla inhabitants of Masaya are stated to

to provide for themselves.
Now that the American forces in Nic
aragua have engaged iu actual battle
with the rebels and the lives of four United
States marines huve been sacrificed in
terest here as regards tho Nicaragua
mutation centres on the ijuintinn: "What
will Senator Hacon do about it?"
Senator Racon is the centre of interest
because of his repeated attacks upon
the policy of the State Department made
upon the floor of the Senate during the
closing weeks of the last session of Con
gress. The Georgia Senator attacked
not only the policy in Nicaragua, where
marines were then being sent on war
shirs, but also the similar action taken
by tho Administration with regard to
the troubles in Cuba last spring and in
China practically ever since the revolu
tion in that country began a year ago.
The Senator declared the sending of
American forces out of the country while
Congress was iu session was a violation
of law, lie now has pending on the Senate
calendar u resolution intended to pre
vent such action by the President with
out consultation with Congress ami the
granting of authority by Congress,
In discussing the Nicaragua!! situation
Senator Hacon declared in August that
the Administration had nppointed an
American collector of customs iu Nic
aragua and that the Administration was
using th army and navy in Nicaragua
to establish wtiat wan sought to bo es
tablished in the Nicaragua!! loan con
vention, which the Senate has not yet
"When this matter is sifted to the txl
tom," mi id Senator Hacon, "we find thnl
this is the real reuse n for American in
terference theie. S.me time ago a tieaty
was negotiated bet wren this country and
Nicaragua by means of which the United
Slates Government was to furnish agents

that country, and to use the proceeds to
pay certain l ansto be made byAmeiicnn

fused to tatify that tieaty and in my judg

slightest doubt in tho world thai there
has been an effort to accomplish without
law what they failed to spcuip 'aw for.
They are using the United States armv
and navy to accomplish thai for which w'p
hove specifically refused to give them
authority. I believe that is a proper

Hesides such dntn the Department has
a long list of charges against the rebels
for seizure and unlawful use of American
property, the sacking ofAmericau houses,
the bombardment of the American lega
tion, the firing upon American marines
without provocation and interference
with the American Minister in his duties.
The Department has also notes of appeal
made to the American Legation by tho
Consuls, Ministers and nationals of half
a dozen Kuropean nations, showing that
the European Governments looked to

A WRONG IDEA
The idea prevails with some
people that quality in building
construction can be obtained
only through extravagant cost.
Such, however, is not the
case. Quality may be costly
or it may be economical, de
pending almost wholly upon
the choice of a contractor.
And the Owner who selects
this Company to do his work
is taking the best available
means to obtain the highest
quality at the lowest cost, be
cause the very reputation of
this Company rests upon the
quality of its work and the
economy with which it per
the note of the Xlcaraguan Government
asking the American Minister to prevail
upon tho Government at Washington
to aasume the responsibility for protect
ing the lives and property of Americans.
In addition there is evidence to prove
that but for the prompt action of the
United State all Central America would
have been in conflagration and disorder
in a few weeks. Abortive attempts to
tart revolutions In the neighboring un
stable republics were nipped lust In time
by the action or the United States In
cooperation with tho other Governments.
Altogether, the State Department feels
satistled as to the business and propriety
of the reasons for ita course in Nicaragua
and is ready to be investigated as to the
part played by Americans in Nicaragua.

Another reason which M, Ioneaou gives
for his belief that Immediate interven
tion Is necessary is that Rumania Is in
a state of expectancy and although she
mar not be mobilizing her forces that
fact does not mean that she Is indifferent
and that she will continued abstain from
expressing her views.
Ilumanla has both moral and material
interests in the matters now In dispute
and will defend them at the opportune
time. Should the oongrees be convened.
M. Ionescu says, Rumania would request
permission to participate in Its discus
sions. The despatches received to-day Indicate
that feeling is rapidly rising in Turkey
and that the Turks ore anxious for war.
The feeling at Constantinople is reported
to he more warlike than at Sofia at the
And the situation at Sofia is Indicated
from a despatch to the Paris Tempt which
says that the mobilization of the Bul
garian army, which theoretically was
scheduled to require seven days, has
been completed in six and that every
thing is now ready for war so far as Bul
garia is concerned.
An example of the temper of Belgrade
comes In In a despatch which tells of the
suicide of ox-Minister Chrisnltch, who
recent ly had been at tho head of the Trade
Department In the Ministry of Agricul
ture. M. Chrisnltch killed himself because
his request to be relieved of hie depart
mental post in order that he might Join
tho army was refused.
Various despatches bring evidenos of
the hurry with which the allies are getting
ready for fighting. Bervla, the despatches
state, has called the reserves into service
as well as the artillery engineer of three
army corps, and officers on leave have
been ordered to Join their regiments at

at St. Petersburg, according to another
despatch, has been recalled to take his

BAD MAN OF THE BALKANS.
Snndanskr, Mlu Stone's Cap tor,
Lead Itald Into Tnrker.
Yanne Sandsnsky, the' notorious Bul
gar bandit, who captured Miss F.llen M.
Stone, the American missionary, in 1901,
is again in tho limelight. Cable despatch
es from the centres of the troubles in
the Balkans seem to indicate that the
lundit has taken advantage of the dis
turbed conditions in Turkey and Bul
garia to lend his followers into Turkish
territory and do a little raiding and killing
on his own account.
Sandansky, at the head of some 2,500
freelmoters and outlaws, is said to have
swooped down on a Turkish Iwrracka.
burned tho buildings and pillaged the
country and is now operating along the
hanks of the River Struma. This news
must embarrass Bulgarian diplomats who
probably ' will disclaim any responsi
bility for tho acts of tho outlaw.
The Bulgarian-Macedonian Committee
in Sofia sentenced Sandansky to death
in May, 1908, and sent four trusted mem
bers into the forests to kill him. The
cables preserved an ominous silence as
to what happened to these four. At any
rate in August of that year Sandansky
was very much alive. Ho swaggered
into Salonicn one night and very much
after the manner of a Xew York gang
fighter started to wipe out some old scores.
He had mndo a fair start when he was
shot and was carried off by his friends.
He was reported to bo dying. At that
lime he was professing ardent friendship
for the Young Turks. It is very prob
able that in this last outbreak he is being
backed by some disgruntled members
of that ousted party.
Before the capture of Miss Stone San
dansky had acquired the name of the
bad man of tho Balkans. He was said to
have slain some 300 persons by his own
hand and to have ordered the deaths of
morn than 1,000.
In the fall of 1001 he came upon Miss
Stone, a momlior of a party of eighteen
missionaries and attendants, whilo they
were travelling In the mountains lietwecn
Hansho and DIJumao in the country be
tween Turkey and Bulgaria. There were
about forty brigands with Sandansky
and they were fully armed. They de
tained only Miss Stono and Mme. Tsilka,
tho wife of a Bulgarian minister. San
dansky allowed Miss Stone to got a letter
through to Consul Dickinson at Constan
tinople telling of her plight and the brig
and kept rumor busy with reports of the
cruelties he was inflicting on his cap
tives, hoping thereby to get the ransom
he demanded. The brigands demanded
a ransom of tl 10,000. The birth of a child
to Mme, Tsllka changed the attitude of
the captors toward the women and they
treated them with some show of consider
On February 23 Mr. Irishman, the
United States Minister at Constantinople,
after trying in vain to effect the release
of the captives by diplomatic methods, paid
over to Sandansky SOJ.OOU ransom which
had been raised, Housed business met hods
in his transactions with the brigand,
who knew tho exact sum that had been
raised and Sandansky nnd his followers
got the money, gave up the women and
rode off into the hills with Turkish troops
punting vainly after them.

The opinion Is expressed In some
quarters that the Government really
withes peace, but dreads an explosion

"Crete must be freed," he declared,
and every Greek was on his feet with a

He thought that residence In the

that it had to be made fast to prevent
It dropping Into the sea.

CREMATION MAKING PROGRESS.
This Method Being Used Ftenslvelr
Rerun, Sept. 24. The progress of
cremation as a method of disposing of
the dead Is being extended throughout
Europe. There are at present thirty
crematories In Germany ns against
twenty-flvc In 1910, and last year them
were 7,655 cremations. This Is nn In
crease of about 1,500 over 1910. Only re
cently the Prussian Diet passed a law
In Italy there are almost as many
crematories as In Germany And In this
connection It Is Interesting to note that
more than 2,000 bodies of bersagllerl
and Arabs were cremated during tho
Trlpolltan war. In England there were
1,023 cremations In 1911 as compared
with 840 In 1910. Rut probably the
greatest progress has been made In
Switzerland, where a recent law practi
cally makes cremation the rule and In
terment the exception.
Japan has long had cremation as a
method of disposing of tho dead and the
practice Is spreading more rapidly than
In Europe. The number of cremations
In Japan In 1909 was 361,000, as com
pared with 717,000 Interments.
WIRELESS FOR SUBMARINES.
Folding Masts Invented for L'se In
the French Xstt.
Paris, Sept. 26. A new Invention of
wireless telegraphy has Jttet been an
nounced whereby the system can be,
employed to an advantage by sub
marines. Heretofore In the French
navy much difficulty has been ex
perienced In transmitting the messages
of an Admiral to the submarines during
manoeuvres and they have been received
so badly garbled that It has been im
possible to understand them.
Lieut, du Paty do Clam,. a wireless ex
pert, has been studying the question
and he has Just made a report to M.
Delcosse, the Minister of Marine, In
which he outlines the style of wireless
mast similar to those In use on gun
boats but which can be easily folded
and made fast when the submarine
