UEItLIN, Nov. 14Danger of a
genera European clash over tho par.
tltlon of European Turkoy was con
sidered practically ended today.
Officials, of course, were careful
not to say bo, but It was tho general
Impression that Russia was over
awed by the Oerman and Austrian
display of strength, and doubtful of
the support It was likely to get from
England and France.
Otherwise It was felt certain that
i!io Czar would have Insisted on an
Adriatic outlet for Servla, and then
nothing could havo prevented Aus
tria from a resort to arms.
As it Is, tho Balkan allies prob
ably will get nothing like what thoy
have expected.
Bulgaria Gets Rumelia.
Bulgaria, t was predicted, will net
the Turkish province of Htimella and a
hare of eastern Macedonia. Tho con
cession to Servla was expected to be
limited practically to a favorable com
mercial outlet but no political authority
on tho Adriatic.
Montenegro, which already has about
twenty-flvo miles of Adriatic sea front.
may get ten or fifteen more and a few
aries south of Lako Scutari. Greece
was understood to be slated for con
trol of a number of towns populated
mainly by Greeks, Just north of Its
pteaent frontier.
Albania will be transformed Into a
seml-lndepcndent kingdom or principal
ity under a nominal Turkish suzerainty,
such as prevailed In Bulgaria until three
car ago.
Salonika, over which Uulgurla and
Circece were on the point of quarreling,
will almost certainly tic plated under
International control. The allies will be
given commercial concession there, but
nothing more.
Tho onlv tountry. It was said, which
appears likely tu profit much by tho
war territorially Is Mulguila, which dip
lomats were understood to think was
only fair considering that Czar Kerdl
nand practically won the cumpulgn.

First Gunman on Stand Says
They Were Near Scene
Of Crime, However.

FIRE AT ROSENTHAL
Declares Shots Were Also Fired by
Vallon and Webber Read
Of Murder in Paper.
NEW YOIIK, Nov. 14. A completo
and unqualified denial was entered
for the four gunmon charged with
killing Gambler Herman Rosenthal
whon (Jyp the Blood, whose real
name Is Harry Horowitz, took the
Btand today.
With a bold front, Gyp flatly de
nied that ho or any of the four was
In the murder car on the night of
Hie killing. He gave a detailed ac
count of their movements that even
ing and said they wero near tho
scene when a "strange man" whom
they had met at Brldgle Webber's
poker rooms, suddenly fired at Ros
enthal. He charged that shots were
also flrcd by Harry Vallon and
Webber.
The "strange man" Ib supposed to
novo Deen me mysterious "ltzky, a
vaguely Identified person, who has
appeared In various stories of the
shooting. He Is supposed to be au
East SIdo touch.
Not in an Automobile.
"We beat It quick when the first shot
was fired," said "Oyp." We ran to tho
Times .Square subway station und took
the uptown car going home. "Dago
Fiank" had gone home earlier, and he
was there when "Lefty Louie,"
"Whltey" Lewis and I arrived."
"Were you In an uuto that night?"
was asked.
"Wo wero not.fl" asserted tho witness.
Ojp said that he and the three other
defendants spent the early part of the
evening In a Second avenue cafe. Lefty
I.Qulc, he said, received a telephone call
for Webber about 12:30 a. m.. and as a
result they all went to Forty-second
street Hnd Sixth avenue, whero they
met Bald Jnrk Rose, Vallon, Sam
Schcpps and tho "strange man." Ho
said that after eating steaks which
Webber ordered for them, they started
out with Jack Hose, who told them he
wanted to prove that he had not been
a party to the "frame up" of Dig Jack
Zellg. Dago Frank then went home.
Gyp said. Rose was going to have
them talk with tho policemen who ar

Bad, But Not Murderers.
In his opening address Mr. Wuhle
faced the Jury squarely and spoke with
an earnestness and forcufuIncBS which
did much to hold tho Jury attentive to
his every utterance. He began by say
ing that so much had been said and
written about the four men who are his
cllnets, so much that was ony partly
true, and so much- that was absolutely
untrue, that It was due the Jury that
briefly ho should outline the career of
each of the four men.
"It Is fitting," he said, "that you
should hear that these men are not
monsters in humiin shape, but ure nlmp.

more than u boy, bad without question
of a doubt, wicked without question of

SCORES PROGRAM AS
ONE OF "QUACKERY"
Attitude Means Bitter Fight Be
tween Two Factions Seeking
To Control Party.
By JUDSON C. WBLLIVER.
Whon President Taft, Boon after
the election, was quoted as being de
termined to contlnuo his active In
terest In public affairs and to de
voto himself to the maintenance of
the sort of representative govern
ment that he believes la deilrablo,
there was a general lifting of oyo
brows. Republicans, who hoped for
a reorganization of their party along
Progressive lines, In tho hope of
bringing back Into tho fold some of
those who hnd gone over to tho Pro
gressives, feared that Mr. Taft'a ef
fort to maintain himself as a party
leader might embarrass greatly their
effort.
Today the President Issues a state
ment of his views about tho recent
election, and thu futuro political
course of the nation. It makes clear
er than his earlier utterances that
he Intends to assumo a leadership In
the efforts to reorganize the party,
and that he sees small reason for
trying to conciliate the Progressives.
Bids Defiance to Progressives.
Following the recent conference of
Clovernor Hadley and Senators Cum
mins and Kenyon, tho President's pro
nouncement of determined hostility to
tho Progressive program Is token to In
dicate nothing less than a defiance to
the more progressive element of those
Republicans who chose In stick by the
party. The Hadley. Cummins plan Is to
wrest the party's control from the Pen-rose-Ilornes-Crane
element, to make It
Just as Inviting as possible to Progres
sives, to appeal to the old sentiment of
loyalty to the name and traditions of
Republicans, and. In short, to try to re
store the old party to Its former place
as one of tho two big political divisions
of the nation.
President Taft makes plain enough
that he will tight erforts from this
quarter to accomplish this. He de
nounces tho whole Progressive program
as quackery, and refers to the "hol
lowness and the Impracticability and
the sham character of many of the
promises." To this he adds the ami
able suggestion that "the country can
not afford to turn Itself over to a class
of men who lo not desorvo to figure
In any more favorable light than
quacks do In tho practice of medicine."
Rent By Antagonistic Factions.
These reflections on the good faith
Incerlty of the Progressives are re-
as reflecting equally on tho new
part? and on tho progressive element
within the old. Roosevelt Is aimed at,
but La Fullette, Hadley, Cummins,
Borah, and the rest, who declined to
stand for the Chlcngo nomination nut
rage, are Just as much within range and
Just as much disposed to regard them
selves nsn the Intended victims of the
President's pot-shot at all Progressives.
Thus the situation Is presented of u
once great party that has suddenly
sunk to the third rank In the nation,
now being pulled and hauled by two
antagonistic forces that want Its con
trol for future uses. It Is not a cheer
ful outlook for people who would llko
to preserve the old Republican party,
but It gives eminent satisfaction ullke
to Democrats and Progressives.
President Taft, In his statement, says,
In parts
Surprised at Roosevelt's Strength.
"I was very hopeful that the result
would be different. I was surprised at
Mr. Roosevelt's strength. I hoped wo
might pull through. Of course I could
not be blind to tho fart that struck
ecryone, that. If you tnk a majority
party and divide it In two. If Its ma
jority Is not very large, the solUl mi
nority party Is apt to prevail over either
,)nrts of the majority, end so It was.
"While I was hopeful I was not In a
condition of mind whero the defeat
greatly disappointed me.
"My tastes have been and are Judicial.
"The difficulty 1 find with the present
Tiogresslve program Is that It contem
plates the Impossible If the country
could stand the burden 1 would like to
see the attempt made. In order that the
people might learn tho hollowness and
the Impracticability and the sham char
acter of many of the promises
"Hut the country cannot afford to
turn Itself -over to a class of men who
do not deserve ti flguro In any more
honorable light than quacks do In the
practice of medicine.
"The danger Is from a party which
Is headed toward socialism as cfearl' as
the Socisllst party Itself.
Only Two Parties Needed.
"It behooes us, as Republicans, to
look forward to tho time, In tho natural
course of events, when the Democrats
shall havo disappointed tho public, to
bo ready to pi event that disappoint
ment from being used by the Hull Moose
and Socialist combination to get Irto
power.
"The sheet anchor of popular govern
ment Is In the division of the people Into
two great parties and no more.
"The Republican party will he ablo
to gather about It many who will re
covet from tho Hull Mooso fever and
also those who voted the Democrntla
ticket because they prefeired to defeat
the Bull Moose party at all hazards."

HOUSE SERGEANT'S ANDERSON SELECTED M9jBA
HISTORICAL MACE TO SUCCEED BRYAN 1 XMj
IS BEING REPAIRED AT JAPANESE POST Ipf

Emblem of Authority Care
fully Guarded by Capi
tol Police.
Zealously guarded by Capitol police,
who will not permit the historic sym
bol to leave their sight, the mace, cm
blem of the authority of the Sergeant-at-arms
of tho House of Representa
tives, was brought to an F street Jewel
er's shop for repair this afternoon.
Three attaches of the office of the
seargeant-at-arms of the House brought
the mace and delivered It Into the hands
of Jeweler Salvatore Deslo. Two of
these officers will remain constantly on
guard until the mace Is repaired, not that
Mr. Deslo would harm tho eagle-capped
pole, but because the unwritten law and
the precedents of the House are that
some one In authority must constantly
be Its custodian.
If the mace run be repaired within
an hour, well and good. If It takei
until midnight, tho Capitol officers will
stay at the Jewelry shop until midnight.
It has been ten years since the mace
was removed from tho Capitol build
ing. About a decade ago a wing of
the silver eaglo was nicked and with
much ceremony policemen designated
hv iho Beurgeant-at-Arma "stayed by"
the symbol for nearly eight hours, while
the repairs were under way.
The Present Trouble.
This time, n pinion which holds the
sextant In place has been broken. Mr."
Deslo Iibb been selected to steady the
eagle, In order that this silver bird
may be ready to peck andy obstreperous
member of the House during the ap
proaching session.
In 17S9 the House rules provided that
the mace should be the symbol of tho
authorltv of Its sergeant-at-arms. It
was further provided that any member
might rise to a question of privilege if
that official attempted to obtain older
without tho sllont but effective presence
of he mace.
A silver pjlate attached to the mace,
which Is undergoing repairs this after
noon, shows that It was made In lStl by
William Adams, of New York. It has
been in constant use at the ouse since
that time, and, day and night, has al
ways been under surveillance. When
the House Is In recess or between ses
sions an ofticer sits In the room with
the mace. Woe bo to any official which
permits hurin to befall It.
Ine present sergeant-at-arms of thn
House Is Charles F. Rlddell, of Indluna,
who was appointed lo (til the vacancy
left through the death of Stokes Jack-

Larz Anderson, minister to Belgium,
has been appointed ambassador to Ja
pan to succeed Charles Pago Bryan,

this week on his return to this country
from Japan. The appointment of Mr.
Anderson was anticipated after the

nols to the White House yesterday, and
to the State Deportment today.
Mr. Bryan, the former ambassador to
Japan, Is a citizen of Illinois, and Sena
tor cullom was anxious to retain his
patronage for his State. Mr. Anderson
Is a Chtcagoan.
The resignation of Mr. Bryan was of.
flclallr attributed to poor health, but It
Is believed that he had a serious dls
agreement with Secretary of State Knox
during tho visit paid by the head of the
State Department to japan at the time
of the late Emperor's funeral.
Mr. Anderson, the new ambassador to
Japan, was n large contributor to the
campaign fund of 19ns and 1912. Ho was
on the list of witnesses of Senator Clapp
and his colleagues of the Senate com
mltteo Investigating campaign funds
whom they expected to call to ascer
tain wrhat relation exists between cam
paign contributions and good diplomatic
appointments.

that position three years. He was
appointed minister to llclgium, August

that ho will go to Japan by way of tlm
United Stales. The state Department

SESSION
Sends in Resignation Follow

Administration.
CARMI THOMPSON
TO BE SUCCESSOR
Charles D. Hillcs Will Return To
Be Secretary to Presi
dent Taft.
Lee McClung, Treasurer of the
United Swtes, has resigned, and his
resignation has been accepted by
President Taft. Mr. McClung will be
succeeded by CarmI Thompson, now
prlvnte secretary to the President,
who will give up his position when
ever Charles D. Hilled, chairman of
tho Republican national Ncommlttce,
Is in a position to return to Wash
ington as secretary to tho President.
The White House was extremely
reticent today regarding tho eslg
nation, admitting only that Mr. Mc
Clung had resigned. It Is known,
however, that the departure of the
Treasurer from the service of tho
Government will causo a consecutive
shift along the line which will re
place Mr. Hllles in his old position
and take care of CarmI Thompson.
No Harmony.
The Treasurer has not been In svniDa
thy for eomc time with cither the head
of tho Treasury Department, Secretary
MacVeagh, nor with the purposes of
the Taft Administration.
The open dissension Which has result
ed In the resignation of Mr. McClung
goes back: to nfe famous letter of A.
Hatt Andrew. Vhls letter criticised the
Secretary of the Treasury In a direct
and rasping manner. Mr. Andrew de
clared that the Secretary delayed busi
ness, was extremely difficult to see.
was Inaccessible to heads of bureaus
and high officials of the department
and generally clogged departmental af
fairs. Subsequently, Mr. Andrew. to
strengthen his position and drive a
little more Iron Into the soul of his
chief, said that the letter which he hud
first written had been shown to several
high officials of the Treasury Depart
ment before being sent to the Secre
tary. These officials, according to Mr.
Andrew, had coincided In the opinion
that Secretary MacVeagh was temper
amentally unnt for his position.
The roar that followed this was one
of tho sensations of the troublous pie
conventlon das of the Taft Administra
tion. All of the officials mentioned by
Mr Andrew, excepting Mr. McClung.
came forward with denials and apolo
getic notes and letters, most of them
paving some Utile tribute to tho Secre
tary of the Treasury
McClung said nothing, would never
comment on the Andrew letter, played
golf and tennis, and attended strictly
to bis knitting The hui r under tho
Middle continued to gall the Administra
tion, and the resignation of Mr. Mc
Clung today Is believed to follow the
exertion of force to this end by the
Administration. Just how the force was
applied has not been revealed. It is
not known that Mr. McClung was asked
to resign.
Mr. McClung Is nfly-two veais old.
He was Iioiii In Knoxllle. Tenn.. nnd
from 1902 until his appointment as
Treasurer of the I'nlted States. Novem
ber 1. 1000, was connected with sevcrJl
railroads, tlrst with the St. Paul and
Duluth and later with tho Southern
railway.
The resigning ofllrlal Is a member of
the Metropolitan. Riding, and Chevy
Chaso clubs of Washington nnd tho
I'nlviTstty Club, of New York He Is
also a member of the Graduates C lu'.
at N'ew Haven, having giaduated from
Yale In ISM.
CarmI Thompson, who will succeed
Mr. McClung, wus asi tant Secretarv
of the Interior Department before be
ing named as private secretaiv to the
President when C D. Hllles was se
lected to pilot the dismal fortunes of
the Republican part. Before that, Mr.
Thompson had n brief political carier
In Ohio, once being speaker of th
Legislature, and later being elected
secretary of etute. He made n light for
th primary law In that State and a
fiw ears ugo was regarded as a Pro
presslvc. Goes to New Yotk.
Mr. Thompson will leave Washington
tomorrow night with President Tuft
for New Yorlc nnd will go with him
to New Haven, letuinlng to Washing
ton Tuisday Just when he will give
up his present position to move to tho
Treasury depends largely upon thn
convenl'iicn of Mr. Illllc.
The rlatlons between Mr. Hllles, Mr.
Thompson, and tin President are
very cordial, and the shift will be mado
to suit the convenience of the two sub
ordinate officials.
With the appointment "of Mr Thnmp
sun to Mr. MiClung's position all of tho
plates from which monev is now printed
will be changed, Mr. McClung's name
appeared on all Treasury notes. In Its
place will appear the name of Carnit
Thompson, a safe, sine method of at
taining widespread f.ime.
Some time ago Mi Thompson an
nounced that he would rctuin lo Ohio
(ill M.m'h 4 to resume the practice of
law. Ills appointment as treasuier of
the I'nlted States will not necessarily
Interfere with this purpose, because tho
position Is one which the Pemociats
may take It Into their minds to nil
Intimations of tl-e resignation of Mr
McClung have been current for sevcial
davs, and when tho A. Piatt Andrew
letters weie stirring official Washington
to alternate worry and amusement It
was considered a safe guess that Mr.
McClung would depurt the service bo
fore the end of the Administration.
