note of the powers will be such a flat

Vesterdav s dispatches reported that
the Turkish govrtmnent had reached
a decision not to cede Adrianoplc or
the Aegean Islands, but was willing
to enter into negotiations respecting
those islands some distance removed
from the Dardanelles. If Turkey's
answer is unsatisfactory, the allies
in deference to Kurope, will ask the
powers whether they have means to
compel Turkey to comply with their'
wishes. It not. the allies will carry
out the plan already announced, lead?
ing to the resumption of the war.
In such event, the allies will regard
all concessions heretofore made for
the sake of peace, either to Turkey or
the powers, as void. Thus they will no
recognize the understanding consent- i

promise of Servia or Montenegro to

Report of Their Approval was Result
Washington, January 19?Represent?
ative Stephens, of Texas, chairman of
the Indian Affairs Committee, said
to-night that he hoped to conclude
to-morrow the investigation begun
yesterday into the Usage Okla., Indian
oil land lease question. The hearing
is the result of a charge by attorneys
for the I'ncle Sam Oil Company that
its application for a lease had been
rejected because Secretary Kisher de?
sired to favor Standard Oil interests. I
Secretary Fisher to-day denied the
declaration made at the hearing that
he had givew the Associated Press in?
correct information in regard to the
Pacts Sarn Oil Company leases. The
charge was made by Albert L. Wilson,
who asserted that the secretary had
said the N ase? had beenapproved after1
they had been rejected.
1 pen investigation to-day it de-'
veloped that the information given
out at, the Interior Department was
correct, that the leases had been dls
aDpn>\ ed but t hrough a misunderstand?
ing a report was published that the
leases had been approved This error
was corrected as soon as discovered.
Commissioner Abbott said th? de?
partment would show to the committee
that the secretary would have acted
in violation of law if he had approved
the I'ncle Sam and the other affiliated
oil leases for the WO.000 acres."

Democratic leaders from both Houses
have made pilgrimages to New Jersey
since Christmas to talk over the new

of these conferences, however, has been
to hold up for the time being any con?
