the declaration of f Congressman John

In the House. The bill already has
passed the Senate, but was referred to
the District of Columbia Committee In
the House when It was brought up in
the House last April,
Since that time, the committee has
not had a meeting because there "was
no quorum. Supporters of the bill de
clare that they are being held up In this

preventing consideration of the bill by
falling to have a quorum.
R. L. Holmes, or the Christian En

that Congressman Johnson bad prom

The Balkan peace delegates,- called to

garian, were in session all night and
still were conferring today regarding
the alarming situation. IU.was said that
they probably would defer action until
a consultation of the ambassadors of
tho powers was held at the foreign
"Apparently our only recourse will be
to resume -the war," Dr. Daneff said.
"We will have to acquire by forc

and the Aegean Islands.
"In view of conditions prevailing to
day, it is a serious question whether
any part of the Turkish governmnt now
could be depended upon to carry out
treaty obligation should any be un
dertaken." The foreign office today received offi
cial confirmation of tho killing of Nadir
Pasha by Knver Bey. The dispatch
from tho British ambassador at Con
stantinople said the aged general lived
a considerable time in a hospital after
he was shot. Two other Turkish of
ficers were killed with him..
Sir Edward Grey called the ambas

they believed they faced a. crisis.

dispatch today said that the young
Turks were In possession of the palace
at Constantinople apd that rioting and
pillaging we,re threatened throughout
the Ottoman capital. The dispatch add
ed that all messages, from Constant!-'
nople were rigidly consored.
Enver Bey, held directly responsible
for the killing of Nazlra Pasha, has
been made military commander of Con
stantinople on his own demand by Sul
tan Mohammed V. The young Turks,
now headed by Enver Bey, are those
who led the revolution of 1908 and 1&9
which drove Abdul HamlcTfrom the
throne and set un his brother Moham-
mei as Sultan. Mohammed is said to
be under the domination of Enver Bey
and his followers, and to be willing to
do all they ask.
