Interests, Sir F-dward points out, Ity

States port beyon tho canal, in either in
direction, Trom a ship engaged in foreign
trHde to an American snip engaged In
coastwise trade, to be carried through the
canal exempt Irom payment or tolls, thus
depriving tho vessel engaged in foreign
trade of traffic which it would otherwise
carrv Ho lurtJier states that he knows
of nothing in United States laws which
prevents an American ship from com
bining both coastwise and foreign trade,
and thus eonifieting directly with foreign
vpiispIh while enjoying exemption from
payment of oanal lolls,
It is stated in the. note that Uie volume
of Hritish shipping which will use the canal
will Ixi very large, and that it is just as
hnKrtant to Gloat llrltalii to protect the
interest of that shipping an it is lo the
United Stales to encourage its mercantile,
marine and establish competition between
'coastwise, tratllc and transcontinental
The note concludes with Ihe statement
that flreat Ilritain appreoiatea tho emo
tion with which the oM'iiiiig or tho canal
is. looked forward to hy citiwns of tho
United Status, and that it is only with the
greatest rehi"tan(si that it has felt eoin-ik-IImI

Swial faille fetpotrh In Tint SIS'
London-, Dec. 10. A Vienna despatch
to tho Dallu TfUgraph says:
"ln spite of the misgivings nnd
doubts still entertained by many Kuro
penn politicians Austria-Hungary ad
heres consistently to her single policy
of peacefully safeguarding her inter
ests. "Count vnn Mensdorff, the Austrn
Hungnrlan Ambassador at London, will
come to Vienna to-morrow to receive
Instructions for his part ln the con
ference of ambassadors of the Powers,
the localn of which has not yet been
"Austria's pulley Bt the conference
may be denned as follows: She will re
fuse to discuss the cession of any ter
ritory on Hip Albanian const. Albania's!
Independence and Integrity arc regarded
by Austria as beyond the Held of dis
cussion. The rest of Kuropo recog
nizes this, even the civil government of
Servla, although the military circles
are still Inclined to ho recalcitrant.
"The vested Interests, outside of the
Powers, In what hitherto has been
Turkish territory must also bo con
sidered, especially those of Oormany
and Austria. Among these Interests
the administrations of the ottoman
railroads are Important. The roads
from the Servian frontier to Constan
tinople and from Salonlca to Mllrovlta
are practically owned In Austrla-llun-
Igary and (Jermany where the funds for
thplr construction wrtc raised and
where a great majority of the shares
"The Ottoman compnny. which nom
inally runs the roads must either be
bought out entirely or arrangements
made with the new owners of the ter
ritory not to hinder Us management
of the administration.
"Austria-Hungary Is again deeply
concerned as regards her commercial
position. Shp ls thp greatest exporter
ot sugar Into the territories now pass
ing from Turkey and as Turkey has
no factories Austria ha no competi
tion. This no longer will be thp casp,
for Ilulgarla and Servla will soon be
victorious competitors In this market,
and also ln textlIVs, with tariff legis
lation. "The revision of commercial treaties
Is therefore necessary for Austria, who
considers that she should now bo
treated Justly and fairly ln Return for
the support she hitherto has given Ser
vla and Bulgaria.
"Tho aovernmenU concerned havo
not yet considered this matter n any
way, but Austria will raise, the points nt
tho earliest possible moment and hopes
to find Servla frlendlyi
"There has been little frlendllnes bp
twepn Austria and Sprvln In rpcpnt
years, the latter has provokpd crisis
"I have alrpady pointed out the blt
tprnpss of feeling caused throughout this
country by the present crisis between
Austria and Servla. which Involved
widespread commercial and Industrial
loss and entailed the hardships of war
on the thousands called to the colors.
"Public opinion Is growing more and
moro Inflamed and Servla will never be
allowed to provoke another crisis. A
Well established friendship lietween Ser
vla and Austria Is the only alternative
to war. It Is hoped and believed that
Servla recognizes this and that such
u friendship will be firmly and unmis
takably established ln tho forthcoming
agreement between tho two Powers, "

Athens, Dec. 9. Gen. Danglls of the
Greek army, In den patches received
hero to-day, charges the Bulgarians
with firing, on tho Turkish troops while
they were disarming after tho fall of
Salonlca. He says ho warned tho Bul
garians when thirty kilometres distant
from Baionlca that it was useless to ad
vance as Uie army in Baionlca had capitu
lated. After the second warning to the same
effect the Bulgarians, who had con
tinued to advance, passed the lines of
the Oreek second division and fired five
or six gunshots. The Turkish soldiers,
who were disarming, and the Turkish
commander protested to the Greek Crown
Prinoe, who again oommunloated with
Uie Bulgarians, who then halted at Aivoli.

he was a pioneer ln art us well as In

life to the pity expressed by his rela

"rough sketches" by Manet, "carica

Millet and "daubs" by Claude Monet
and Renoir, as, they were commonly
called between 1870 and 1900. Through
M. Tlllot, one of his frlonds, who was
