the public demonstration m Constanti?

Pasha, the former War Minister and
commander of the Turkish army, was
killed, the Turkish embassy to-day re?
ceived the following cablegram from the
Minister oT f oreign Affairs of Turkey .
For some time past there has been
manifested a feeling of discontent
among the people against the Cabinet
of Kiami! Pasha, who. foreseeing a
popular movement, thought U better
to take strong measures for repressing
it. The debates in the Orand Council
and some rumors which were spread
afterwarda caused this discontent io
turn into a feeling of exasperation.
In consequence a large crowd went yes?
terday to the Sublime Porte in order
to manifest the feeling of the nation.
At the moment of entering the Sub?
lime Porte an aide-de-camp of the ex.
Orand Vizier, prompted by an excess of :
zeal.or maybe by fear, drew his revolver
and' killed one of the crowd, which,
being up to that moment very peace?

WILSON SEEKS REST.
Goes to New York to Escape Strain of
New York. January 24.?To obtain
rest and diversion from the strain of
his official duties. President-Elect Wil?
son came to New York for the week-end
to-day. He went shopping with Mrs.
Wilson most of the afternoon, visiting
half a dozen stores without being gen?
erally recognized. To-night the Oov
ernor was the guest of a friend at the
theatre He had no political argu?
ments, be said.
It is very probable that the Presi
dent-elect will visit the metropolis ev?
ery week-end before his inaugura- j
tion. as his friends have cautioned him 1
against overwork. Earlier in the day
the Oovernor had gone to Philadelphia j
to visit a dentist. He left there for!
New York at noon, and will not be
back in his office at the State House
before Monday. Although he gave
bis plans for the week-end in detail
to the correspondents so as to be ac?
cessible to them, he asked that informs,
tion as to his whereabouts be withheld
from the publio so that he could be
free from political burdens for awhile.
Although Governor and Mrs. tVllaoB
escaped general recognition during
their shopping tour, an incident at the
very start indicated that their hopes j
in this respect might not be realized, j
The Governor had agreed to meet Mrs. ;
Wilson on an upper floor of one of the
big stores, and as he stepped out of the .
elevator and walked to the spot where
?he was waiting, some one recognized j
the President-elect. There was an im?
mediate flutter among the store em- ,
ployes. who flocked from all sides and ?
surrounded the couple. An impromptu j
reception followed, during which scores
of eager young women were greeted by
the Governor and his wife.
The playhouse which Governor Wil
Mal attended is a very small one, and '
he was speedily re--ognized as-he took
his seat m the aucien.ee. In his honor, to

ONLY BIG PITCHERS

New York Has Some

Philadelphia, January 34.?There wae
a time when u email man had a chance
' to make good in baseball as a pitcher,
but only big fellows are wanted for
such positions nowadays. Old-time
fans will remember when "Kid" Carsey
and "Wee Willie" MeOill held their
own with other mu.ior league stars.
They were small even for the pitchers
of those days, but they would be
midgets yomparod with the present day
crop of curve breeders. 80 keen are the
managers for six-foot pitchers that they
will spend weeks and months trying
to drill a giant into tho rudiments of
twirling, whereas they will scarcely
give a second look to a youth who le
under tho five-foot eight mark.
If the average height of the twirlrrs
on any major league team was secured
it would probably be found that it
was close to tho six-foot.- The New

pitohers who stand over six feet tall,

KING ALFONSO MAY
PAY COUNTRY A VISIT
He Is Anxious to Come, and
Government Shows Signs
London, January 34?King Alfonso
of Spain is likely to pay a visit to the
Tnited States some time this summer.
The Spanish government is now con?
sidering a proposal which emanated
from the King himself, who has long
desired to visit America. He has several
times made similar proposals, which
have been rejected by the government
under the mistaken notion that the
animosities created by the war be?
tween Spain and the United States
are still warm, but since !a?t year
King Alfonso has been combating this
idea and has been reinforced in his
opinions by the personal experiences
of Captain Vincens. the Spanish attache
at London, another Spanish " officer
who visited the I'nited States last
summer. When Alfonso was in Kng
.and in August he sent for Captain
Vincen* and questioned him about
his trip to the I'nited States. The
king was so interested in the attache's
story tyat he insisted that the captain
should travel with him from London
to Dover while he was on his wav to
The Spanish Kin* insisted upon
; getting from the alt< he every minute
| detail in regard to the l!nite<l Stater
lie was particularly anxious to find
out whether any ill feeling remained in
America over the Spanish-American
I War. iCaptain Vlcens assured him that
i there was not the slightest animosity
On the contrary he found everywhere
feelings of the utmost cordiality.
After hearing Yicens'a story King Al?
fonso sighed and said l
"How fortunate you are to be a
simple officer and not a King. You
havo visited a country that I am most
anxious to see. it haa been my wish
for years, but the government will not
permit me to do it, thinking that per?
haps there is still some ill feeling over
the war. But your account agrees
with my opinion, and what you have
told me of the wonders of the country
simply adds most to my desire to visit
It is understood that since that time
King Alfonso has been pegging away
a.t his ministers to help him make the
trip. During the last t hree or four days
the matter has been taken into serious
consideration, but no decision has yet
been reached. The young King would
like to go to the I'nlted States early In
the summer when the Spanleb Parlia?
ment is not In session.
ON ANTITRUST BILL
Judiciary Committee Votes
Unanimously for Drastic
(Special to The Times-Dispatch.)
Raleigh, S*. C, January 24.?Judi?
ciary Committee No. 1. voted unani?
mously to report favorably the Justice
bill to declare illegal combinations in
restraint of trade, the drastic anti?
trust bill introduced early in the
session The bill applies the Sherman
antitrust art as State law. adds the
provisions of the noted Reid bill of
the 1907 session, provides punishment
for agreements as well as conspiracy
in restraint of trade, and provides
machinery for the Attorney-Oeneral
to investigate and prosecute much as
the Federal act empowers fbe Attorney
General of the United States in this
respect There seems to be no opposi?
tion to the Justice bill. Indeed, many
who would ordinarily be considered to
oppose such legislation declare that
they are indifferent because this issue
has distinctly passed into national
Instead of State dimensions and the
State law can only be a sort of figure?
head. It looks like easy sailing for the
bill through House and Senate.
After two days of spirited debate
the Senate voted to-day to limit
buit'ding and loan associations to
borrowing to the extent of fifty in
?tead of twenty-five per cent of paid
in assets as at present. An amend?
ment at the last minute by Senator
Jones to allow borrowing to the amount
of seventy-five per cent of assets was
defeated. The original bill was to
illow unlimited borrowing.
Duplicate bills were introduced In
the Senate and House for six months'
minimum rural schools, through a
t2.Vi.noo State appointment to assure
four months' term and supplementary
1-cent Stale property tax. the pro
?eeds of whn-li can only go to salaries
jf teachers for iwo addition*! months*
tf schools. Thorne. in the Senate, and
Masette. in the House, introduced these
bills for the joint committee and State
Department of Education.
The Justice resolution, declaring the
attitude of the (general Assembly as i
to freight rate discriminations, was!
passed unanimously. Justice st ,? cd
that he had be< onie convinced that it j
was not ne. e?sary for him to make the 1
romprehensive spec, h in the freight I
rate situation that he had intended to i
make, as he had yet to hear of a sin?
gle member of the Legislature opposs <i
to the passage of the resolution. The
