SDLTAN OF TURKEY IS
BELIEVED TO BE DEAD
That the sultan of Turkey is dead
and the government is and has been
for some time administered by a group
of former favorites who hold affirs
their own hands, is the insinuation of
an, Englishman engaged in business in
Turkey who is in Minneapolis today.
Bobert M. Gibletts, the man in ques
tion, in business in Constantinople, is
registered a the "West hotel. Gib-
lettS does not say that he believe that,
6 Monday Evening,
Around the Town floes no say xnat ne uueve mat ri""*
bazaars all over Turkey that the sul
tan is dead.
I believe the rumor is the work of
a growing revolutionary party," said
Mr. Gibletts. "It is not boldly talked
of, but is kept alive the agents of
the party who are constantly moving
about. The fact that the common peo
ple are not allowed any opportunity to
investigate tends to keep the story
alive among the people Prom time to
time persons are brought out who are
alleged to be former servants in the
royal household, who say that to their
knowledge the sultan is dead. Al this
is easily believed in Turkey and is
quietly passed about."
Mr. Gibletts handles American manu
factured products, including farm ma

the interests of his business.

The record is gratifying in the ex
treme, not only because of the big
gam, but because it was made in the
face of adverse conditions affecting
one of the greatest of local industries
the allied milling and grain trades.
The car shortage and the railroad
congestion brought about such condi
tions that grain that should have moved
into Minneapolis terminals piled up in
stead in the country, and receipts or*
grain of all kinds from Sept. 1 to the
close of the year were nearly 35,000,-
000 bushels lighter than in 1905.
This suggested a possible falling off
in bank clearings, but so heavy was the
business in jobbing, retail and general
manufacturing lines that the Vrain
trade difference was wiped out and a
seventy-seven-million margin remains.
The grain trade will make up its
proportion 1907, for grains in the
country will necessarily move to mar
