OTTOMAN POWER IN ,
EUROPE AT AN END
Sultan Seeks Intervention of Powers to End
x Hostilities tod Assure Negotiations for
Peace Defeat of Nazim Pasha
Is Officially Admitted.
DARDANELLES OPEN TO WARSHIPS
London, Nov. 3. The Ottoman power in Europe is at an end
Turkey to-night asked the powers for mediation, with a view to cessa
tion of hostilities and the negotiations of peace.
An official dispatch from Constantinople admits the defeat of
Nazim Pasha in the furious five-da battle of last week. The Turks
have fallen back upon the last line of fortifications outside the capital,
nd the fall of Constantinople is now inevitable.
PAJTIC SEIZES UPON CITT.
Panic has seized upon the city. There. are grave fears of an out
break against the Christians as soon as the situation becomes known
to the fanatical Moslems who are demanding a holy war.
Tn this perilous situation, and as a final admstsion of her helpless
ness, the porte has granted permission to the powers for each to send
one warship through the Dardanelles for the protection of their na
tionals in Constantinople.
FACE ANOTHER; QUESTION.
Europe is now face to face with
the problem of the distribution of
the spoils. A momentous race is
on between the ships of the powers
and 'the victorious Bulgarian army
as to which shall enter Constanti
nople firstf " Either or both arc
needed there to present the certain
uprising against the Christians
which otherwise will occur. But
the pride of the Bulgar demands
the right to the possession of the
cit and the dictation of peace with
the Turk, unhampered, in his own
capital, without the interference of

their homes, have driven the power of

rus, where it dangles while the prophet

The general consensus of opinion to
night is that the powers will not dare
to interfere with the Balkan states In
the completion of their work, or attempt
to undo what has been done. The broad
principle of their right to what they have
paid with blood of thousands of slain

American Colligi Students and
Veterans Willing to Fight'
Against the Ms.
Students of Johns Hopkins University,
of Columbia University, and of Harvard;
army officers, athletes, and veterans of
the Spanish-American war have flootd,
the Grecian Legation, at the Wjoming
apartments, with letters, volunteering
their services to King George in the
war against Turkey. L. L. Caftanzoglu,
charge d'affaires of Greece, last night
declined to give the names of any of
the American patriots who are willing
to lay down their lives to drive the
Turk from Christian Europe.
Many of the volunteers hall from
John Hopkins, but the exact number
Mr. Caftanzoalu does not know Their
services were not accepted for the" time
being at least, but If the struggle with
the "Terrible Turk" becomes desperate
and the allies need troops, the Ameri
can volunteers can, upon their own vo
lition, take passage to Greece and there
enroll themselves under the flag of that
ancleut empire. The Grecian Legation,
however, will not encourage any organ
ized movement of American citizens in
this country to Join the army of King
George. Mr. Caftanzoglu said last night
Would Help Greece.
'I have received a lot of letters, espe
cially from educated people who are tn
the American universities They have
come from students at Johns Hopkins,
Columbia, and Harvard, from athletes
and men who have served In the war
with Spain. They have written that
they would like to help Greece in the
struggle to free my country from the
Turkish yoke. For the moment my gov
ernment cannot accept the services of
these volunteers. My government is
deeply grateful to every one" who ex
presses sympathy for Greece and its just
cause.
"I am not astonished, however, by this
display or sentiment Dy the American
people. Every one who has "been edu
cated, especially in America, knows of
the big part which Grecian civilization,
the Greek arts, the Greek letters, the
Greek philosophy, and the Greek Ideals
have done for the advancement of the
world. The splendid Anglo-Saxon civili
zation Is founded on the Grecian.
This is not the first time that' Amer
ica has shown her sympathy toward
Greece. In the agar of independence,
in 1S:1, when all the governments of
Europe were bound in the Holy Alli

sympathy toward the movements of
our people in their struggle for free

Much money was sent throush the

and Candidate Sustains
Cut in Head.
Princeton, N. J. Nov. 3. Gov. Wil
son sustained a three-Inch scalp wound
early to-day when an automobile In
which he was riding from Red Bank
to Princeton struck a mound In the
road at HIghtstown and hurled him
against one of the steel ribs supporting
the roof of the car.
Tho wound began to bleed profusely
and 'the Governor was hurried to the
residence of Dr. C. G. Titus, a few
blocks from where the accident oc
curred. It tobk Dr. Titus two hours to
dress the wound, but this wss because
he 'became excited when he learned
the identity of his distinguished pa
tient, and for the further reason that
like most country doctors, he was un
prepared for an emergency case.
The Governor called his own family
physician. Dr. J. M. Carnohan. when he
arose at 10 o'clock this morning, and the
wound was redressed. Dr. Carnohan
said that the Injury was slight and Uiat
the Governor could keep his engagements
to speak at- the rallies atPaterson and
PassaMStb wind up the campaign.
Capt. William J. McDonald., the Gov
ernors .jxKDguara. was ma only com
panion at the time of the accident The
captain was severely bruised In several
places.and some of bis old gunshot
wounds were reopened. Carnohan gave
the captain a thorough examination and
found that he had suffered no serious
injury. Capt. "BUI" was quite Indiffer
ent about possible injury to himself.
T don't care, so long as the Governor
escaped," he said.
The injury to the Governor did not
become known until about. I o'clock this
afternoon. There was no indication-of
any Injury when the Governor arrived
home t l:b o clock this morning.

MOOSE SERMON
Unitarian Minister Eulogizis
Roosevelt While President
is in Church.
New York, Nov. i President Taft to
day heard a Bull Moose sermon and sat
through It unflinchingly. It was at the
Unitarian Church of the Messiah that
the President listened to much eulogy of
the third-term candidate bv the pastor,
the Per. Dr. John Haynes Holmes. The
President attended church accompanied
by Secretary HUIes. of the National
Committee, and Henry W. Taft. Dr.
Holmes, despite his previous knowledge
of the expected presence of the Chief
Executive, delivered his sermon, which
startled his congregation with its em
phatic progressive sentiment. The Presi
dent, while surprised at Dr. Holmes
delivery, showed no sign of annojance.
and listened attentively throughout the
sermon. He declined to make any com
ment, .and merely smiled when asked
for an expression of opinion. Dr. Holmes
to-night defended his action by saying
that the sermon had been prepared In
advance, and expressed his personal
opinion together with what he believed
to be the opinions of a majority of the
congregation.
Tho President left New York at 8
o'clock to-night over the New York Cen
tral for Cincinnati. He was accompanied
by Maj. Rhodes, his aid. and Carml
Thompson, private secretary. The time
of leaving was two hours later than
originally Intended, but the pnrtv will
reach Cincinnati at tho same time, which
Is 7.30 to-morrow night.
Refnsea Statement.
Before leaving, the President an
nounced, through Mr. Thompson, that
there will bo no official statement con
cerning the new Vice Presidential candi
date at least for another twentj-four
hours, and that It was extremel) doubt
ful that any such announcement would
be made until after election. It Is known.
howeVer, that Gov. Hadley of Missouri
and John Wanamaker. of Philadelphia,
were -the two leading candidates for the
position. Gov. Hadley being favored by
about twenty of the Republican National
Committeemen and Mr. Wanamaker by
almost an equal number.' The President
was not Informed of the statement by
William Barnes, chairman, of the New
Tork State Committee, concerning the
chalrmsn's approval of Mr. Wanamaker
for the Vice Presidency, but Private Sec
retary Thompson emphatically declared
tact Mr. Barnes' utterance came as a
purely personal opinion and was not
basked' by the Presidential preference.
.When asked If the President would ap
prove the selectltn of Mr.. wanamaKer,
Mr. Thompson replied:,
The choice of the Vice Presidential
'candidate lies with the 'National Com-
satttae. The President will ratify the se
lection of tho committee."

Baltimore, Md, Nov. J. A message of
assurance was given to the Catholics of
the United Slates to-day by Cardinal
Gibbons. The cardinal speaking from the
Baltimore Cathedral, assured the mem'
bers of his nation-wide pastorate that
though dire predictions as to the political
and civil future of the United States had
gained credence during the present cam
paign no material calamity could In real
ity come to this country through politi
cal Jugglery.
The cardinal closed his seml-polltlcal
discourse with a direct reference to the
three Presidential candidates. He said:
"There are three conspicuous citizens
who are now candidates for the Presides
ey. Whatever may be my private and
personal preference and prediction, it Is
not for me in this sacred pulpit, or any
where else, publicly to dictate or even
suggest to you the candidate of my choice.
"May God so enlighten the mind and
quicken the conscience of the American
people to a sense of their civic duties as to
arouse In them an earnest and practical
Interest in the coming election, and may
He so guide their hearts that they will
select a Chief Magistrate who will re
dound to the material prosperity and mor
al welfare of our beloved republic"
Guarded by Coaatltutlon.
In regard to the crisis said to be facing
the voters of the United States the car
dinal said. In part:
By the wise provisions of the Constitu
tion of the United States political author

Jealousy among these blanches. They are
of the alert, zealously watching one an

Its legitimate bounds. Eternal vigilance
Is the price of liberty.
Then, again, besides the Fedtral -ad
ministration, we have State governments
and county rules, and we have city.
town, and village municipalities. If all
of these minor corporations were ab
sorbed by the-general government, if our
Governors, and State legislators, and
Sheriffs, and Mayors, and CouncUmcnH
were all under the control of the Presi
dent; It hevcould at all decapitate all
obnoxious subordinate rules with one
blow, all our political liberties would be
at an end. But. happily, all these lesser
officials enjoy full autonomy in their
spheres and are independent of the Chief
Magistrate.
system Very Complex.
our system of government Is very
complex. It may be compared to
colossal engine, containing innumerable
wheels within wheelsr Each wheel works
In Its own orbit, like the planetary sys
tem. If the great Federal wheel gets.out
of order, the smaller wheels are not
much deranged, but keep on moving till
the big machine is repaired.
"We are all familiar with the memor
able Titanic disaster, which resulted In
the loss of so many precious llv es, as well
as the peerless vessel Itself. Had all the
compartments of that steamship been
watertight, the loss of life would have
been avoided.
"Now, our government Is often called
a ship of state. This great ship of state
Is divided into forty-eight minor States.
Each of these States may be said to ba

of the others. California, for example.

a political revolution without disturbing
tne neighDonng states or vvasmngton.
Nevada, or Arizona.
Autonomy the IlaliTarlc.
"The safety and permanence, there
fore, of our republic largely depends on
the autonomy of the several States, vv ith
out the danger of, absorption by the gen
eral government- Should our Governors
and legislators ever become the subservi
ent creatures of the Federal government
they would be mere puppets, subject to
Lthe will of the Chief Executive. They
would cease to be waterproof and would
share the fate of the Titanic
"Two momentous crises occurred in my
own day which were well calculated to
test the vitality and strength of the
republic The first was the war be
tween the States, when the nation was
cut In twain, when fratricidal blood
was shed over the land and a tremen
dous conflict wss carried on for four
years. This calamity has happily ended
and the dismembered States are now
more firmly untyed than ever before, be
cause slavery, which was the bone of
contention, hss been removed onco and
forever.
Oaly Possible Menace.
'The second crisis occurred ,ta the
Presidential contest la UTS between Til
den and Hayes. "Mr. Tilden was robbed
of the fruit of tho victory which. I
beBeva, he honestly won, tand by ques

the successful candidate.
. "A nation that could survive these ter
rible strains must be possessed of ex

leads us to hope that In any future
emergency the leaders and statesmen of
the repubUo wDl rise to the occasion and
bring order out of chaos.
"It is my profound, conviction that If

election:
"Wilson and Marshall will have the
largest majority of electoral votes given
any candidates since before the civil

popular vote ever given a political
party in the history of the United States.
They will carry not less than forty of
the fortv-elght States, and are likely to
carry all of them. A unanimous vote
in the electoral college will not sur
prise any man who has seen the confi
dent reports to Democratic national
headquarters In the last days of the cam

Congress vv 111 be Democratic in both
branches. The Lower House will not
contain more than 100 of the combined
opposition, and in the Senate the Dem
ocrats I1I gain more than the ten saats
necessary to wipe out tne ttepuoucan
majority. The same sentiment that Is
sweeping Wilson into active authority
will back him up with legislative powers
