Rechad Pasha Expected to
Present New.Tenns at the
Meeting of Peace .Dele
gates Todar.
LONDON, Jan. 5. The danger of a
rupture tomorrow of peaco negotia
tions seema (o have been aycrled
by the probability that Turkey will
rnako fresh concessions which will
allow the allies to enjoy a holiday durlns
the festivities in connection with tho
Christmas celebration of rhe Orthodox
J church.
From authoritative sources it is stated
that tho powers, through their embas
sadors hero and at Constantinople, have
exerted strong pressure at Constantino
ple in favor of moderation, whilo tho Bal
kan representatives have been urged to
be patient before breaking off negotia
tions, cspooially as they can lose noth
ing by waiting, (hvlr position being
stronger than that of Turkey.
Efforts Successful.
Tho efforta of tho powers appear to
have boon successful on both aides.
Thus, unloE?. .ome sudden chango de
velops'at iho last moment, Rechad Tasha
will pres'ent on Monday new terms, which
will comprise another rectification of
Thmccan frontier, bringing it further
cast, perhaps to Dcdcagatch, but not yet
including Adrianoplc, and possibly the
cession of Turkey's rights in Crete direct
ly to tho allies.
'to them, Dr. Daneff, premier Vcjiizcios,
M. Novakovltch and M. MIyuskovilch
met today and decided to glvo Turkey a
further period, of grace, taking the
ground that the submission of the new
terms will bo proof of a disposition on
tho part of Turkey to reach a satisfac
tory solution. Thov propose to submit
the new terms to their Kovernments for
study and await further instructions, and
will ouggest an adjournment of the con
ference probably until Friday, the third
day after their Christmas,, nt the same
tlmo emphasizing tho absolute necessity
of Turkey meeting tho terma of the al
lies, parllculraly with respect to AdrJau
oplc. Pressure Continued.
The powers continue to exercise pres
sure at Constantinople almlnsr to demon
strate to the porto that resistance only
would lead to craver losses.
The Impression is that Turkey will end
by cedlnsr Adrianoplc. and that this will
be done without HJiy serious rcsult3,
such as arc predicted by Turkish nym
pafhlzers. or threatened by Constanti
nople. Whenever Turkey is about to
suffer territorial amputation, tho specter
of Mussulman fanaticism Is aroused and
assistance Is sought from Great Britain
and Franco which havo in their domin
ions million of Mussulmans who are pic
tured as Ccing ready to rise in sympa
thy. Tho Turkish empire, however, gradu
ally, has been dismembered, without tho
Mussulman dragon ever awakintr either
at home or abroad, and experts In Turk
ish affairs interpret this to mean that
the Mussulmans thcmselve.-: are- con
vinced that they fare better under their
present rulers.
Italy's Good Offices.
Advancement ha3 been mado by Rus
sia and Franco In their eXforto to in
duce Italy to U6c her good offices at
Vienna with the object of turning- over
Scutari to Montenegro, instead of In
cluding that town in Albania. It is be
lieved that Italy as tho ally of Austria
and also because of relationship between
the Savoy and Montenegrin royal fami
lies, may xucceed in accomplishing HiIb.
while If tho name proposition were urxted
by the administrations at Paris and St.
Petersburg1 It might assume the rharac
tcr of tho triple entente opposing tho
triple alliance.

NEW YORK. Jan." 5. Hector Fuller,
erstwhile war correspondent, who went
to Hongkong In an effort to bring back
J.. Lawrcnno Mott, IU., son of the
j wealthy iron manufacturer, who eloped
last May with Mrs. Frances Hewitt
Bowne. an actress, returned today with
his quest unavailing.1
Young Mott i3 still in 3Iongkong with
the actress. He. steadfastly declined to
listen to the pleadings made by Fuller.
"Tho boy Is deoply in lovo with Mr.
Bowne," 3ald .Fuller tonight at hla hotel.
"All my effortB to. induce him to give
her up failed."
Fuller says Molt Is doing what he can
to maintain, tho lltllo homo ho and the
actress havo at No. 0 Peddaric Hill,
Hongkong; With a gift for writing. Mott
has turned this to use, while- Mrs. Bowne
aids by sliipHng at the theater or in
churches on Sunday.
Give Up Luxuries.
Tho elopers havo two rooms in their
Hongkong homo and havo done away
with every luxury, Motfs father has cut
him off without a cent, but this has not
disheartened him.
"I don't caro If I don't got anything
from my father," Molt told Fuller the
day tho latter left for hoino nix. woolta
ago. "When I started from home T do
termiiutd 1 would mako my own way in
tho world. I am doing 11."
Fuller's hunt for Mott began last May,
tho day after tho couple slipped away
on a freight steamer, tho Indradeo, bound
for Hongkong. Mott had given his
promise to Fuller to go on a long cruis
ing expedition and caused a flurry when
he went away Instead with Mrs. Bowne.
Whllo Mott and Mrs. Bowne aro in
Hongkong resolutely refusing to part,
"Motf.s wife with their daughter lives
in her luxurious home at RLvordalc on
tho Hudson. Mrs. Mott has not decided
yet whether she will ask for a divorce.
Mrs. Bowno't; husband maintains their
homo at Mlllerdale, N. J. He consulted
sii attorney some time ago as to the ad
visability of a. divorce
Story of Elopement.
Last spring: at the time Mott's 'father
was trlng to dissolve the lovo attach
ment Mrs. Bowne was traveling in the
west with a theatrical company.
Shortly after reaching South Bend,
Ind., tho actress broke away fmm tho
road and camo to Now York, appearing
at a vaudevlllo house. Immediately upoi.
her advent in town Mott began staying
away from homo nights and his falhei
put detectives under Fuller's cliarge upon
the boy's trail. Finding that he was
visiting the actress, the father, exasper
ated over his eon's persistent wooing of
the young woman, hastened arrangements
for a trip around tho Horn. Passage on
tho freighter was ready for Fuller and
Mott to tail on May 21. Young Mott pro
tended to Fuller that he was going.
Two days before the time set for the
departure of tho ship Mott and Mrs.
Bowno escaped the vigilance of the de
tectives and boarded the Indradeo, bound
for Hongkong. They listed as "L. Wil
son and wife," Mott passing himself oft
as a purser and tlm actress as a stew
ardess. Fuller, by the direction of Mott's
father, followed on another steamer, but
did not overtake the elopers until they
arrived at Hongkong.

WILSON NOT READY
TO NAME ADVISERS
Neither Bryan Nor Anyone
Else Has Been Offered
Portfolio in Cabinet.
WIDE FIELD. OF CHOICE
President-Elect Says He. Is
Taking Counsel and Keep
ing Open Mind.
By International Nows Service. !
PRINCETON, N. X, Jan. 6. Per
sons who havo an idea that somewhere
or somehow William Jennings Bryan
or any ono elao has beon offered n
portfolio in tho Wileon cabinet irill
find themselves very much mistaken
for Iho. presidoDt-clcct mado the posi
tive assortion today that ho hud not
mado a single offer to any one as yet.
Ur. Wilson said al50 that ho had
formed no conclusions cither ar. to men
or policies for his administration, and
that as for tho Democratic leaders who
havo bcou in confcrcnco with him so
far, ho has obtained their views, but
had not divulged his decisions.
Has Not Decided.
In fact, tho president-elect indi
cated clearly that iho reason why no
body in Washington or rlGewhnre could
say definitely what would bo the make
up of tho next cabinet or the pro
gramtno of legislation was becaufo ATr.
Wilson himself didu'fc know. He is
still taking counsel and keeping his
mind open.
"Faking a cabinet i? a difficult
lliing." ho said. "Sninelimos T boar
something about a man whom 1 may
not havo been considering seriously. It
makes nio prick up' my ears and want
to know more about him. The field of
choico is constantly widening."
Another announcement that came
from, tho president-elect was that he
would not make known a tingle mem
ber of his cabinet uulil he was ready
S make all tho names public ' Tie said
ho would wail -till ho had decided on
all before, making any offers, and ho
indicated that they would bo last-minute
announcements.
Will Send Message.
Mr. Wilson jaid ho would send a
special message to the new congross.
Ho realised, he said, that congress was
not bound to legislato only on tho
things .for which it "was convened by
presidential proclamation, but ho ex
pected lo indicate in his spcciul mes
sage some of the subjects upon which
ho would liko to see the lawmakers sot
to work.
The president-elect spent Sunday at
homo receiving friends. Ho Eaid he
only had read tho Leadlines of Presi
dent Taft'"s speeches yesterday.
Corrects an Error.
The only speech iho governor has pro
pared In sidvancc since his nomination at
Baltimore was his speech of acceptance,
as he docs not read speeches.
With respect to appointments in tho
foreign service, Mr. Wilson Jet It be known
that he had not given them definite con
sideration. He had been shown a news
paper dispatch concerning the appoint
ment of a new embassador to Mexico.
"I haven't any more idea who is going
to be embassador to Mexico than I have
as to who will bo tho first man I'll groot
when J reach Washington," ho said.
It. is known also that Mr. Wilson has
not considered whom ho will appoint aa
embassador to Groat Britain.
Tho governor was naked if he had read
Preeldcnt Taft's speeches in Nov York
yesterduy.
"I only saw the headlines," was the
reply.
Mr. Wilson spent tho day at home with
Ills family.
