ground that a candidate had done some
thing for the Jews as a fclass.
"It any one comes to you as a dema

There nre two reasons for this. One
is on account of despatches from America

when cables from America discounted

soldiers marching towards it look upon
this prize. No spot on the surface of
the globe has been more ardently coveted

then at the zenith of hi power, mude

tlon Napoleon looked carefully ut the
map, then glancing back at his colleague
is said to have exclaimed with an air
of finality;. "Impos-iblel It is the mas

sion of this capital."
Since then the city hns remained in
tho bands of the Turks simply becaliso
it was known that they wore incapable
of taking advantage of its position. To
day Its commercial importance gives
it a particular prominence. Further
more, it is soon becoming an important
railroad centre, for It is here that all tho

The city lies at the southwestern end
of the Hosporus upon a promontory

tho Golden Horn runs inland for borau
six or seven miles. The harbor thus
formed Is one of the (ineut in the woild.
To the south, the sea of Marmora
spreads like a lake, its Asiatic coast
bounded by hills and mountains und
fringed with irlands, Upon the Asiatic
shore and facing the ear-tern side of tho
promontory stands the historic town of
Chrysopolis, or the golden city, which
has now become a suburb of Constanti
nople knovn by the name of Souturi.

Some three centuries later Constuntine
decided to transfer his capital Trout the

The, legend of the change is well known
to all Greeks. According to It, when tho
Kinperor arrived at Constantinople he
found the then existing city to lie too
small for his imperial conceptions. He
determined to ineieaso it forthwith.
Accordingly ho summoned his advisors
and had them accompuny him lo deter
mine on ila new boundaries.
Leaving the city gates behind, the
party 'started on a ciiouilou route the
diuuieter of which appealed to be con
stantly increasing. Some of the cour
tiers, junaed ut tho daring of the Kinperor
and fearing lest ho should undertake
more than was feasible, eutuied to call
his attention to tho fact that the ground
they Iind ulready encompassed was more
thun ample for a new capital. Constan
tino, however, iiecordlng to and story,

pointed to a lonely star that bad ap
peared suddenly, shining In tull day

until tho heavenly light, disappeared
did tlielltst Kinperor of Uymntiiim stop,
and then the foundets tealled that they
had coveied an area about ten times
greater than that occupied by the town.
The history of this famous locality
cannot Im understood unless the extraor
dinary character of its geographical
position is present to the mind, No city
owes so much to its site. The I'lamotir

Amusing; Case in London Over
"Commission" for Senator
HOW GAME IS PLAYED

Special Cable. Peipatch lo Tna Sen,
London, Nov. 4. There wns an
! amusing case In the Law Courts to-day
I beroro Lord Chief .Justice Alverton
over a commission for a sale ol oiu
masters to former United States Senator
William A. Clark of Montana. A suit
has been brought by Alfred Gcorse
Temple, director of the Art Gallery of
the Corporation of London, against Sir
George Donaldson, a well known col
lector, for S per cent, commission on
5740,000 supposed to havo been paid
for tho old masters.
At the opening of the case counsel
stated that Mr. Temple In 1904 promised
with the assistance of tho late Edwin
A. Abbey, the artist, to Introduce Sir
George Donaldson to Senator Clark
and that Sir George had said that he
hoped to get $1,250,000 for his (Donald,
son's) collection from the American.
A letter from Sir George Donaldson
to Mr. Temple shows tho wiles of art
deulers In an amusing light. It reads:
"You have acted too uulokly. With
American finance In Its present stata,

ber that a blaso buyer only wants to
hoy when the holder of fins thinca doea
not wunt to sell, I'm a pluch'of salt on
your bird's tall,"
Mr. Temple In his reply to this letter
said among other things: "Abbey aays
the tinanclal position In tho United
States will ,jot make an atom of dif
ference to Clark."
Senator Clark arrived In the sum
mer and saw the collection ot Sir
George Donaldson twice and then re
turned to America. About this Sir
George In writing to Mr. Temple said:
"It you make tho largest gain you ever
dreamed of do not bo greedy, but insist
upon Mrs. Abbey tnJUng a handsome
Interest of what you moke."
Senator Clark a little later agreed
to make the purchases, paying $SGO,000
by Instalments or the whole sum Im
mediately If he sold certain bonds. Sir.
Tempi later on asked Sir Georso Don
aldson for a list of his transactions
with the Senutor. Sir George wrote In
reply to the effect that ho had dined
with Mr. Clark a short time before,
when the Senator had declared that he
(Temple) had no claim for commission,
Mr. Clark, according to 81r George,
drclurcd that ho had long known of the
Donaldson collection himself and had
Intended to call and sfe it. The intro
duction by Temple waa therefore a farce
and no business had been doner-until
threo years afterward.
The case was here adjourned for
