The manner of tho overthrow of the
Cabinet came about In this way: The
Ministry met at noon to draw up a
reply to the note of the Powers, In ac
cordance with the decision of tho Na
Uonnt Assembly yesterday.
Tho Cabinet conferred for neveral
hours without any outward slfms of tur
moil, hut later a crowd beun to Rather
outside tho Grand Vir.!oralo and pres
ently Knver Hey. who wits famous In
connection with rhe YounK Turk revolu
tion and had ndded prrstlse as a
popular hero because of his exploit."!
In thi campaign aualnst the Italians nt
JJenelinzl, appeared on horseback be
foro the Korelftn ortlce. He was fol
lowed by n considerable mob which
olnmored acalnst the Government.
I'nter Hey made a brief nddress to
the demonstrators In which he promised
that their demands should bo nutlsfled.
Accompanied by nnother prominent
member of the Committee of I'nljn and
I'rocress t YounK Turks). Knver Hey
then entend the I'orc What happened
within Is iwt as yet known, but on re
turning Knver Hey informed the crowd
that he held the written rejlsmttlon of
Grand izn-r Klamll I'asha. the head
of the Ctblnut. which h wus coin to
take to the Sultan. This announce
ment was sreeted with enormous en
thusiasm. Knver I!ey then entered an
automobile nnd drove to tho palace.
Meanwhile the demonstration before
thy rorte continued, numerous, speakern
declaimlni; annrlly niwlnst the Govern
ment. Sunn.' of these fiercely declared
that the war must continue.
Knver Hey returned after an absence
of an hour and a half and was received
with frenzied applause. He announced
'li.it he had obtained the ncqulescence of
tin- Sultan In the ovcrturnlnu of the
Government and the issuance of an
Imperial trade appointing Mahmoud
Shcvket I'nsh.t Grand Vizier. Subse

The crowd remained listening to
spei ches and cheering until a very late
hour in the evening. Thuy loudly ac-clalmi-d
the pub. to reading at 7 o'clock
of a document transferring tho VIzlerate
to Mahmoud Shevket i'asha. who on ar
riving at the Porte shortly afterward
vas greeted with Immense enthusiasm.
All the newspapers except Young
Turk organs have been forbidden to
publish tlio manipulation of troops. This
recalls tho movements of 190S which
preceded tho coup d'etat which re-
milted In the forced abdication of Abdul
Ham Id. Those troops who ar known
to bo loyal to thu Government have
been sent, by who."e orders It Is not
known for a certainty, to manieuvro
near tho Hill of liberty outside, tho
city. A detachment on which the Young
Turks uro able to rely has been eent
to guard the Porte.
Talaat Hey. the Minister of the In
terior under the new regime. In an Inter
view late to-night represented the turn
over of the Government as an unpre
meditated movement, but n spontaneous
and popular protest against the. sur
render of Adrianople. the ancient
stronghold of Turkey In Kurope. Ho
said that If Adrianople were surrendered
to the nllles thu whole empire would
break out In an uproar. He ndded:
"Wo are going to have the natlonnl
honor or perish. We do not w,int to
continue the war. but we are determined
to keep Adrianople "
" An official announcement by the new
Ministry states that the decision of the
Klamll Pasha Cabinet, which was taken
In response to the note from the Powers
asking Turkey to abandon Adrlimopln
and some of the .Knean Islands, and the
convocation of the Kxtraordlnary As

untied - a course contrary to the pre
scrip'lons of th constl'utlonal charter
and violating the sacred rights of the
people amused the Indignation of the
nn; Inn. with the result that the people
made a demonstration before the Sub
lime Porte and brought about the reslg
nation of the Government.

Los-pon, .Inn. 23. There Is at least a
Htrong probability thnt woman suffrage
so far as the present Government Is
concerned Is doomed to defeat. This Is
an outcome of n declaration of the
Speaker of tbo House of Commons,
which, although it Is not dcllnlte enough
to be culled n "ruling," clearly Indicates
his view that If a woman suffrage
amendment is Inserted In the franchise
bill lie must rule that the bill would be
so materially nltcred that In nccordnnce
with Parliamentary customs It must
again be Introduced as a new measure.
The bill as originally Introduced gives
the suffrage to every "malo person."
Sir Kdwurd Grey's proposed amend
ment knocks out the word "male."
As It Is not possible for the Govern
ment to give time enough to take a
new franchise bill through nil the
stages, the present measure, which has
already passed thi ' comi reading.
would have to bo withdrawn and many
members to-night declared that the bill
was as good as dead.
