POWERS WILL TAKE
A HAND AT CRETE
The Co-operation of Foreign Fleets
FEAR THE RESULT OF A CONFLICT
The- Powers Think That the Outcome

key Would He Humiliation of the
rormer--licUor from the King of
(Jruecu to the IJmpcror of Itiissiu.
Berlin, Feb. 14. The latest communi
cation between the powers concerning
the new complications which have aris
en lrr regard to Crete point to an imme
diate resort to concerted action to re
store order in Crete arrd restrain Greece
fronr lui titer pursuing the course she
has taken which, if persisted in, must
inevitably result in hostilities between
the kingdom of the Hellenes and the
Turkish empire, which it Is believed,
without the ultimate Interference of the
powers could have but one outcome,
the defeat and humiliation of the for
mer. As the situation appears now It Is
probable that foreign occupations of
Crete will be decided upon which will
likely be limited to a considerable In
crease of the Gendarmerie on the Island,
with the co-operation of the foreign
lleets continuing the Cretan ports.
Among the numerous communications
bearing directly on the Cretan situation
which have passed during the last week
Is u, lettet from the King of Greece to
the emperor of Russia In which the king
explains to the crar that the action of
Greet e In serrdlng a flotilla to Crete was
a demonstration necessary to the safetj
of his own government and to the pres
ervation of Internal order. The king
adds that he Is perfectly willing to trust
to the power s to do Justice In respect
of the demands of Greece In Crete.
Though the situation has created a feel
ing of alarm in some qu.ir tci i, the hopes
entertained in oltlcial clrcle3 through
out the continent that European peace
will be maintained are becoming strong
er through the belief that whatever
fighting ma) occur will be localized and
finally die out as the leoult of Its con
finement to small limits.
TURKISH VESSEL DETAINED.
Athens, Feb. 14 Advices have been
received here giving details of the de
tention at Candla of a Turkish vessel
by a Greek warship. The vessel which
was stopped and compelled to return to
her anchorage was the Turkish trans
port Fuad, bound for Canea with muni
tions for the besieged garrison at that
place. As the Fuad rrroved from her an
chorage and started to leave the har
bor the GreeK warship headed in such a
direction as to intercept her, and order
ed her to stop. No attention being paid
to this order the Greek vessel fired two
shots across the Fuad's bows and the
transport, being unarmed, put about
and returned to her moorings. It Is re
ported that the commander of the Btlt
lsh fleet protested against the action
ot the Greeks and ordered the vessels of
that nation to make rro further attacks
upon the Turks.

fantry, artlllety and errglneers have
embarked at Piraeus for Crete. Their
departure was attended with great en
thusiasm. It Is understood that the or
ders of the troops are to protect the
Christian iamilies-ln Crete and to re

demand since the factories were put

the jobbers are also well supplied as

these reasons dealers generally are dis

.11 n re h U-No Prospect of Ratifica
tion by Present Senate.
Washington, Feb. 14 The meeting
of tho serratp committee on foreign re
lations yesterday morning made It ap
parent that rro agreement could be
reached on the general treaty of arbi
tration with Great Britain that would
bring the contending fuctlons, cither In
committee or In the senate, together.
While Mr Sherman was not told so
In exact words, the Inference to be
drawn from what Mr. Morgan, Mr.
Daniel, arrd Mr. Cameron said, was
that under no circumstances could this
treaty be latlfied nt the present ses
sion of the senate.
After an hour and a half spent In
discussion the committee framed an
amendment which provides that all
subjects to be submitted to arbitra
tion under this general treaty must
be submitted after the manner and In
tho form provided for the submission
and ratification of treaties. This re
moves the objections aimed at the
treaty by Mr. .Morgan and others, to
the effect that the submission of all
subjects to arbitration under the
treaty as now worded would be left
entirely to the president. If it Is
amended as suggested by the commit
tee's action of this morning, only such
matters ns have been agreed to by the
full treaty-making power of the Unit
ed States, the ptesldent and the senate,
acting jointly, can be submitted to ar
bitration This action of the committee in
adopting the amendment did not bring
about harmonv, however. Orr the con
trary, the more the whole subject was
discussed the more evident It became
that the differences were Irreconcllla
ble. Messrs. Morgan, Daniel, Mills and
Cameron refused to consider the treaty
In a favorable light, even after they
had voted for the amendment. They
opposed the convention on general
grounds, nnd said It was Impossible for
them to believe that the country would
be benefitted bv its ratification, at tho
present time at least. The committee
adjourned with the majority feeling
anything but comfortable over tho out
look. Mr. Sherman made his demand for
an executive session a few minutes af
ter the senate convened, refusing to
yield to anything but the most routine
of morning business.
Early In the session Senator Chand
ler offered an amendment to the trea
ty In the shape of an additional article,
which Is, In fact, a declaration. It de
clares that both the contracting par
ties In making this treaty do It for
the purpose of enunciating their belief
In the principle of international arbi
tration, and to bring about, If possible,
the policy of a general disarmament
among the nations.
It Is further declared that each of
the contracting parties expresses their
willingness and intention of making
similar treatments with other nations,
including not only those that are
strong and able to defend themselves
and who have large military estab
lishments, but also with the smaller
families of nations with whom differ
ences, similar to those covered by this
treaty, might arise.
Mr. Toller, of California, was one of
the first speakers. He advocated the
postponement of the consideration of
the tieaty until after Match 4, when
the senate would be In extra session,
w lth ample time to look Into the ln-
The debate of the afternoon revolved
about a question of the proper inter
pretation of the words used by the
committee In Its rrew amendment,
which provides that all matters for ar
bitration shall first be submitted to the
senate for Its "approval." What was
meant by the word approval? was the
question generally asked, and to which
no satisfactory answer appears to have
been given. There was also a wide dlf
terence of opinion among senators as
to whether, under this amendment,
such approval would have to be given
by a two-thirds vote or by a majority
only Some contended that. Inasmuch
as the whole congress had to appro
priate the money to meet the expenses
of the arbitration, tire congress might
hnve a voice in the settlement of the
matters to be submitted.
Mr. Mills made the only set speech
ot the day He Is at all times arr Im
petuous and vehement speaker. He
was unusually free today, and being
unrestrained by the galleries he un
bosomed himself In a way that left rro
loubt about the depth of his opposition
to the treaty
He opposed It orr general grounds, for
the leason that It not only went too
far but was bad in principle He did
not believe It right that this senate
should, by any general arrangement,
restrict the power of the senate to act
In the luture whenever treaties came
befote It. There were but few things,
Mr. Mills said, that ought ever to be
submitted to arbitration, and about the
only thing he could recall was the
question of pecuniary claims. Ques
tions Involving the life, the Integrity,
the development of a nation, matters
affecting the honor of the nation, Its
flag and the protection of Its citizens
should never be arbitrated. A nation
that had any standing among the peo
ples of the earth ought ever to ue
leady to protect Its territory, to uphold
Its honor, and to defend Its citizens
wherever they might be against the
oppression of tho foreigner and the
tyranny of other governments War
was frequently justifiable, and that
was the reason why ho did not believe
the United States should Vlnd Itself
to any general treaty of arbitration
The United States was now a power
ful nation: It was strong enough to
demand Its rights, nnd It was mighty
enough to enforce those rights If they
