RUSSIA 10 TURKEY
1 FIHCE DISPUTE
Ottoman Government Ac-
cused of Taking Possession
ofLarge Strip in Persia, j
SUSPICION IS AROUSED
Germany Believed to Be Be
hind the Porte in the In
terest of Italy.
LONDON, April 6.The relations of
Russia anrVTnrlcey. which a fow weeks
hro caused tb circulation of alarming
reports, may at any moment reach an
acute stage, and again the bone of
contention -will be Persia.
At th0 cloeo of tho Russo-Japanese
war Turkey moved troops into tho Per
sian provinco of Azerbaijan, a strip of
which h.iH been in dispute for upwards
of 200 years. Turkey claims this
strip; Persia holds it, but tho ownership
has yet to be decided.
Turkey Moving- Forward.
The question has been a subject of
negotiations, but while these havo been
going on Russia asserts that Turkey
has been slowly moving her forces un
til (hey have gone oven beyond the
disputed strip and now command, the
western part of Azerbaijan from Lake
Urumiah to the frontier and could with
I ease attack the Russian province of
Turkey denies an' aggressive inten
tions. She has informed tho Russian
ininistor to 'the Porte that she has
troops in the disputed territory onlj- as
a temporary expedient awaiting tho
outcome of friendly negotiations and if
necessary a reforenco to Tho Hague tri
bunal. An Anglo-Russian committee, on the
other hand, has roportod that the Rus
sian assertion is correct and has Issuod
a map showing that Turkey has taken
possession of about 10,000 square miles
of Porsinu territory.
Suspicion Is Aroused.
Turkey's firmness in supporting her
contention nnd in not only placing
troops in tho disputed strip, but mov
ing them forward has .given rise in Rus
sia to a suspicion that some other power
is behind the Ottoman government. It
is pointed out that the acquisition of
territory on tho Persian frontier might
bo accoptod as compensation by Tur
key for the loss of Tripoli and tho
power that could bring about this ex
change would please Italy. Germany,
which beforo has tried to secure con
cessions on Lake ITnniiinh, is the power
Tho movement of Russian and Turk
ish troops along the frontier has given
cause for frequent alarms lately and
Russia's actiou in taking a leading
part in tho effort to bring the Turkish-Italian
war to an end is said to have
been suggested by tho fact that in this
frontier dispute she cuu use an argu
ment that would give a weak power,
such as Tnrkoy, causo to think beforo
engaging against two strong powors at
tho same time.

BE SOm AT LAST
Mrs. Elsa Hobbs Raymond In
dicted for Murder of
Mattie Hackett .
By International Nows Sen'lce.
AUGUSTA, Maine, April 6. Ar3.
Elsa Hobbs Raymond touight occupies
a eell in. the Kennebec county jail,
seven rears nftor suspicion that she
knew moro about the murder of Mat
tio Hnckctt, than any one else first
rested on her. Sho was indicted to
day and, aiter a trip on foot to her
boarding place, a mile away, was com
mitted to await six months for trial.
"Thank God," was her only com
ment when informod of tho indictmont.
Sho and the other members of tho Kay
moud family welcome the trial of the
case. The parting from her husband
and four-year-old daughter Evelyn
moved tho jailers to tears. The child
clung to her mother until the last mo
ment and was then hurried away by
her father to avoid tho ordeal of see
ing the iron doors closo behind her.
The strangling of pretty lS-year-oId
Mattie Hnckctt near tho ddor of her
home at Kents Hill, three miles from
Bcadficld, seven years ago, was one
of tho most mystifying crimes that
ever took place in this state. Time
and again attempts havo been mndo to
clear up the murder, but so cunning
ly hud it been planned and executed
that the keenest detectives gave up the
trail in despair. Finally evidence came
to County Attorney Williamson from
an unexpected quarter and the facts
were presented to the grand jury,
The namo of Mrs, Raymond had been
connected with the tragedy before.
She was questioned immediately after
the crime about the report that she
was jealous of Mattie Hnckctt. But
Mrs. Raymond denied that sho was
