The countrj Is now in the condition of
the European countries at the end of the
Fnvors Woman Suffrage.
Mr. Uhrlaub Is a merchant, with Im
porting Interests In New York, Constan
tinople, and several Persian cities. Ha
has traveled all over the world and
speaks many languages. He dresses In
European garb, and does not suggest In
any way the foreigner except In a slight,
foreign twist of accent
The salvation of Turkey, according to
the Ideas of Mr. Uhrlaub, will be woman
suffrage. He prophesies that the woman
suffrage movement will develop steadily
In Turkey, and that It will accomplish
its alms at no distant date.
"There Is now In Constantinople a well
organized army of suffragists. There are
no militant suffragists as there are in
the Occident, but they have come out
in the open. They were beaten and even
killed for a while, but they have kept on
at it and they will win."
Mr. Uhrlaub paints Constantinople as
the land of opportunity for the young
man. There are only two things badly
needed in the city, he sas. They are an
American bank and an American steam
ship line. Americans who wish to bor
row money in the Ottoman Empire now
have to patronize foreign banking Insti
tutions that demand 25 per cent or more
Turkey Is rich in Iron, coal, oil. and
other mineral deposits, but because of
the superstitions It is impossible to mine
the land for the treasures, the belief of
the natives being that if a hole is mad
In the ground It will' afford a means of
exit for the devil. ,
Suffragists Agree to Sell Tick
ets for Grand Stand for Pa
rade and Split Proceeds.
SCHEME LOOKS FEASIBLE
Additional Persoas Scad ia Notice of
Their Partidpatioa ia Big
Proposals to share In the proceeds ot
sales of tickets In the stands erected
along Pennsylvania Avenue for the great
pageant which they are to present on
March S, were submitted by letter to
Chairman Eustls, of the Inaugural com'
ralttee. by the suffrage workers yester
day. The women ask that tickets for
these seats for the 3d be Issued t
them for sale among the hosts of sym
pathlzers, who are coming for the dls
play. They say that they will dispose
of the tickets, and go half with the In'
augural committee, this money being
pure "velvet" for both sides.
The Issuance of tickets for the big
reviewing stand on Lafayette Square
In their behalf. Is also requested
by the suffragists. Tickets for this stand
and those erected along the Avenue, the
women say can be sold several times
over among their supporters at regular
inauguration market prices.
Where the right to erect stands has
been let to private contractors, Mlas
Alice Paul requests of the Inaugural
committee that "It grant to the suf
frage association a percentage of the
amount received for this concession."
In support ot this request. Mils Paul
writes: "The contractor for the stands
to be erected from Ninth to between
Ninth and Tenth Streets, has Informed
us that he paid 32.260 more than was
paid for the right to erect and control
similar stands four years ago He also
stated that his unusually high bid was
made on account of the suffrage pro
cession. A competing contractor In
formed us that he also had offered, be
cause of the suffrage procession, raoro
than S2.000 In excess of the omount
paid four vears ago"
Mrs Ellen Spencer Mussc, dean of
the Washington College of Law, Is acting
with MIsh Alice Paul, chairman of the
Congressional committee. In Impressing
the women a request, with the general
advantage to both sides. In case It Is
grantwl. upon members of the Inaugural
Many members of the Inaugural
committee are In favor of accepting
the women's proposition.
"If the Inaugural committee grants
our request to-morrow," Mrs Muaiey
said last night, "we will be able to dis
pose of all the tickets among our sup
porters before the middle of Febru
ary. Some question has been raised of
the right to 'ell tickets for our event,
but as tickets have been sold for sim
