VIENNA, Jan. 25. Turkey has re

at any time In. consequence of the

Expected Measure Will Reach
White House for Signature
by Tomorrow Night.
President "'aft will sign the loan
shark bill patted by Congress last week.
The bill has not et reached the White
House because a session of the Senate
was not held yesterday, and thus the
President of the Senate could not sign
thp bill In open session,' as is required.
This will probably be done tomorrow
and the copy of the measure may reach
the White Tlouse for the President's
signature tomorrow night.
The protests against the hill which
have come to the President are few in
number. Two or three persons whose
names have not been made public have
asked to see tne president lieiore he
finally acts on it. These persons will
be accorded a hearing. The President
has been acquainted with the provisions
of the bill, and it Ib believed that no
arguments made by those Interested In
its defeat will change his Intention to
sign the measure.
An Important phase of this measure
is the effect it .will have on loan shark
legislation in States and municipalities
The passage of such a law In the Dis
trict of Columbia Is expected to re
awaken interest in the question and pos
sibly lead to campaigns In tliorc cities,
where the extortionate lei der has not
been the subject of attack
In contrast to the limited number of
representations made at the White
House regarding the loan shark bill la
the flood of letters, telegrams, and per
sonal calls regarding the Immigration
bill. Those Interested in this measure
seem to be about equally divided. The
President has promised hearings after
the BUI is passed by Congress. So large
is the number who desire to be heard
personally that a public hearing at the
White House may be hclu.

SLAIN MAN'S SISTER
Widow and Male Friend Arrest
ed on Suspicion of Murder
in Kentucky. 1 ,
CINCINNATI. Ohio, Jan. 26. Frank,
alias "Dad" Minor, and Mrs. Freda Gill,
wife of Louis Gill, who was found mur
dered at his home on Hodge street,
Newport, Ky., recently, were arrested
early today on a charge of murder by
Newport Detectives Sheeran and Cot
tingham and Patrolmen Asplln and
Hundermer and held without bond. The
arrest was made on a warrant Issued
by Police Judge Buten after Kate GUI,
a sister of the dead man, had sworn to
an affidavit charging both the wife and
Minor with the killing.
Minor and Mrs. Gill were located at
the home of Mrs. neuter, on West
Eighth street, in Newport, Ky. When
the arrest was made, it was said the
couple were getting ready to leave
They were placed on separate floors
of the jail and will be kept apart until
after they are taken to court. Under
orders from Lieutenant Lleberth, Ed
ward Eppler, son of Mrs. GUI. was tak
en to police headquarters. It Is be
lieved that the boy, who is fourteen
years old, can shed some light on the
Gill Had Asked For Aid.
On the night before Gill's body was
found, apparently brutally murdered,
the man had approached persona ask-
Jj)CiJthey had seen a pollcema'nlle
to his home' and make Minor leave
there. He was advised to go home, as?
he had been drinking. ' J
I,ter Minor, whose nose was bleed
lngU the time, sought the police, say
ing that Mrs. Gilt wanted an officer to
come toThe house and compel her hus
band to leave.
The next morning Mrs, Gin."- reported
that she had found her husband dead.
Bruises were found on his breast, and
Coroner DIgby, after a post-mortem
examination, found that there was a.
blood clot between the brain and skull
on the left side of the head and that
death was due to cerebral hemorrhage.
Both Minor and Mrs.- GUI claim that
they are innocent.
Suspect Has Bad Secord.
The coroner's statement that the man
died from alcoholism, delayed the po
lice somewhat, as they paid no atten
tion to the case until the blood clot
was found. Minor has served a term
of years in the Kentucky State pen
itentiary. He was a member of the
gang which assaulted Bertha Gleason
In Newport some years ago.
It is alleged that he was a frequent
visitor at the GUI home. GUI and
Minor have had numerous quarrels In
which GUI's wife is said to have taken
the side of Minor. The police think
that there was a quarrel Tuesday night
and that GUI was murdered.

NEW YORK, Jan. 26. Sheriff Har
burger's deputies are keeping a close
watch today on the Fifth avenue
home of Maj. Gen. Daniel E. Sickle,
for whom a warrant was issued yes
terday charging the celebrated wa
veteran with misuse of funds of the
New York State monument commis
sion. The bond of the general has bees
fixed at $30,000, and unless some of
his frionds come to the rescue he
will be arrested the first time he
leaves his house tomorrow.
To Use No Force.
The sheriff announced today that he
could not enter the home on the Sab
bath, and that under no circumstances
would he order his deputies to use force
In serving the papers. The plan now Is
to wait on the outside and serve the
document when the aged warrior steps
into the street,
Mrs. Sickles has announced that she
would not come to the assistance of
her husband again, unless It was after
a complete reconciliation. The general
has, been as Arm" In "his announeemertt

home, and It has been hinted that' he
win see that the bond is forthcoming, if
the sheriff's men actually start to take
the aged man to the jail.
The shortage In the funds of the
monument commission has been known
for some time, but on account of the
advanced age of the genera, his poor
health, and the general sympathy with
him in his financial and family troubles,
the attorney general gave General
Sickles every opportunity to make the
deficiency good. The shortage origin
ally amounted to about $29,000. Stanton
Sickles, the general's son, from whom
he has ben estranged for years, paid
S6.0O6 as soon as the news of the short
age was mado public, and at the same
time the attorney general was given to
understand that Mrs. Sickles might be
expected to assist In paying the rest of
the debt. This Mrs. Sickles has been
quoted as refusing to do.
When It became known that the order
for the general's arrest was on its way
It was rumored that both Stanton Sick
les and his mother had hastened to
Join the general and had actually re
entered, for the first time in several
years, the house at No. 23 Fifth ave
nue. Had Left Town.
At the Hotel Albert, Eleventh street
and University place, where Mrs. sick
les and her son reside. It was said that
both had left town. As General sickles
has kept his house barrlpaded against
visitors, the story of the presence of
his wife and son could not be verified.
The general's home presented a holi
day appearance externally. Windows,
steps, sashes and curtains, all were
spotlessU clean, and across the
ground lloor windows were draped with
small ttllk American flags, apparently
signifying the determination of the vet
eran to j;o down with colors flying. To
all Inquirers the answer was given that
the general would not see anyone and ,
that no message could be taken to him. j
