Incidents In hr past history are re
called to show that this sort of diver
sion 1? the favorite feature of Ottoman
policy in the face of a dilemma. Tur
key, tliev s.iv, wants time to complete
Iter mobilization, and the offer of le
fnrmsi which need not. necessarily, ma
terialize. Is to create a delay, enabling
Turkey to get her iirmy in trim.
Moreover. It Is feared that the war
like passions are too deeply stirred
alike in Turkey and In the countries
of the allies to permit the Governments
lo give way without danger to them
selves The Governments of the allies,
piinlculatly. may think the anger of the
Powers Is more easily faepd thnn thp
furious icyentmcnt of their subjects if
tboy fall to exact the reforms to en
fotce which they mobilized their armies.
Hu'saria especially Is committed to
the enforcement of reforms, and It Is
genriaii bei.eved that any backdraw-
ng now will i o.t King Ferdinand his
llirone and perhaps his life. It is nn-
luestlonable that the Hulgais are burn
ing to light the Turks and tho Turks
are burning to fight the Hulgars.
The Porto points out that Its decision
to institute reforms Is not a sudden re
solve, but Is the outcome of more than
f) month of deliberation, and the ques
tlon indeed has been considered much
longer than that. It remains to.be
proved whether If the decision of Tur
key Is carried out It will satisfy the al

mail fo the National Park Bank on Sep

destination, centred yesterday on Havana,
the bank itself, tho post oftlceat the Cuban
capital and the steamship that carried
the mall from Havana to Key et
All the work of the New York post
office inspectors and secret service men
generally only tended to establish that
the registered pouch arrived intact on
October 1, that it. had not been tamperod
with, that a National Park Bank pack
age was in it. that It showed no signs
of having been opened, but that un
deniably the money wat- gone. It van
agreed that the entire affair constitutes
about the most baffling international
mail mystery the Department has dealt
with in many years. There was less
uneasiness also because it developed that
the entire sum was in $10,000 bills and a
German insurance company Is tho only
loser. Acting Chief Post Office Inspector
Harber said yesterday:
"Krery piece of mail put In tho reg
istered pouch at Havana for which re
ceipt was made out in duplicate has been
accounted for; it was all present in the
bag when it arrived at this office on Octo
ber 1 The package consigned to the
National Park Bank was duly delivered
and receipted for. What that package
contained or did not contain this office
does not know.
"I had not been Informed that $2 or
$:oo.nno woj in it. The package was de
livered and subsequently we were notified
that there should have been JIOO.ooo."
While Mr. Harber did not say so. it
became known that his service between
the time it received the first information
and yesterday had followed the registered
pouch in its course from the port of Ha
vana to New York. It had come across
to Key West and had been transhipped
with other registered pouches to a postal
car which was not opened until it oamo
Into the city. No one could have opened
the package on its entiro trip without
breaking tho lock or cutting the hag, and
noither had been done. As a matter of
fact the United States postal authorities
are not inclined to believe that the job
is up to them and they are waiting to
hear from their Cuban confreres,
Maurice K, Ewer, cashier of the Nation
Park Batik, reiterated what he said on
Sunday, that the bank had only the in
formation or advices it had received from
the National Hank of Cuba to go by. It
had compared the contents of the package
received with the advices and had discov
ered that the 1200,000 was missing, where
upon it had notified the Havana banking
Itepresentatives or the National Bank
of Cuba, which is regarded as a strong
institution with American backing, de
clared yesterday that they are not out a
cent by ihotriinsaction. Their shipments
outside and inside the bunk are insured
by the Mannhuim company, one of the
largest insurers of International currency
shipments in the world,
"Our bank is fully protected by this
insurance," said J. i . Monahati, manager
of the New York agency of the hank at 1
Wall street. Advices received assure us
that the money, which consisted of twenty
ItO.ODO bills, was duly committed to the
oare of the Havana ostal authorities. Our
financial roionsibll!ty ooosed tho mo
ment ihe money was thus dlsfiosed. When
we were informed that it hud not arrived
we notified the Mannheim company, which
riecessaiily told Ihe mstul authorities,
and, we assume, employed detectives,
Our bank Ih wholly protected."
Tho insurance company retained the
Hums agency to help out in thn search,
according to a notice sent broadcast yes
terday. It read as follows,
The ivon.ooo sent by Ihe National Hank of

Any bankers, brokers or other persons

Neither Ihe detectives nor the insurance
companies believe that any attempt will

be impossible to do this anywhere In the
world, They do expect, however, that
within a reasonable time some person in

I.os'ihi.s', Oct. 7. The House nf Com
mons assembled more or less resignedly
to-duy for the autumn session, which
has begun to be regarded as the In
evitable annual Infliction. It was evi
dent at the outset that the anxiety over
the Ilulkons overshadowed , domestic
matters, of which the report on thrTI
tunic disaster was placed as the first
business on the programme.
Premier Asipiltli wns absent, owing tn
a slight chill, and this lefl the temporary
leadership to Chantllor Lloyd George.
Hefore the House took up the Titanic
report several uuestlons were asked.
J Among other things the Unionists"
wanted to know whether Winston
Churchill's scheme for ten to twelve
separate local Parliaments for the
United Kingdom was sanctioned by the
Cabinet, Mr. Llody (leorge read Premier
Asqulth's written noncommittal answer
and he pointed out that Mr. Churchill,
when he announced the scheme at Dun
dee, said he spoke for himself only.
Further questions ns to whether Pre
mier Asnulth approved the plan only
drew Inarticulate smiles from both Mr.
Lloyd (Jcorge and Mr. Churchill.
Sir Kdward Orey's statement on the
Dnlkans was listened to with great Inter
est, but many of the members left after
the Foreign Minister had concluded and
the debate on the Titanic report began
with n smnll attendance. Leslie Fred
eric Scott, t'nlonlst member from the
Liverpool Exchange division, set forth
the views of the shipping Interests, stat
ing that the Hoard of Trade's rule call
ing for lifeboats for all the persons on a
vessel would compel many steamers tn
carry such n load of lifeboats that they
would be unseaworthy.
The debate turned mainly on tho
Hoard of Trade's proposals which are
bused on the Titanic catastrophe and
accusations of the board's negligence
toward general rules before the disas
ter. The night Hon. Sydney Huxton,
Presldeat of tho Hoard of Trade, de
fended the board and promised adequate
consideration of the suggestions made
by the various members during to-day's
discussion. The debate wos then ad
journed. In the course of the evening notice
wns given In regard to the Govern
ment's proposals for closure on the
home rule bill. These proposals pro
vide for twenty-five days discussion of
the bill during the committee stage, live
days for the report stage nnd two days
for the third reading or passage. The
Government's proposals will be discussed
by the House on Thursday.
Three nuitters of vital Importance are
to be disposed of at this session of the
House of Commons. These are Irish
home rule, the disestablishment of the
Church of Knglnnd In Wales and the
proposed election reform. The Liberal
Government supports all thesn meas
ures, The Conservatives came prepared to
fight tooth and nail against all three
measures. Already at the start they
had flf ty-fi pages of amendments to
the home rule bill on hand, simply to
delay It. The Liberals will resist de
lay. however, hy drastic application of

to one of guilty, As the announcement
was mado every eye in the court room
was levelled upon Clark, who rose and
walked toward the Judge's stand.
"Do you plead guilty?" asked .lodge

had caused the explosion. He used Hie
umbrella to protect the dynamite from
tho rain and then left It behind. Clark'
was also charged with carrying out plots
against employers of non-union labor.

statement to the jury to-day nnd had not
