ALLIES STANDING PAT
The eaco plenlotentlarles have
had no meetings during the last week
though they did not leave London
.Tho points of difference wcro so
grent that a resumption of the dls
cusslons seemed useless. The rr presen-
tatlveo of tho Pcwers, a kind of ad
vlsory council, tcok matters In hand,
however, and addressed a note to
the Porto advising tho Turks to ac
cede to tho demands of the allies.
This note callol forth a bitter state'
ment on tho part of the Turkish Hep
retv ntntlvy to Germany, who Is In
Londcn, In which ho upbrnldH tho
IVwero for their want of consistency,
calling nttentlon to their statement
four months ngo that present bound
aries would remain Intact whatever
tho result of tho war. Of course,
when the statement wns made Europe
thought the Turks would he the vic
tors In tho struggle und It likely
meant that the Powers would not al
low any extension of Turkish terri
tory In Europe, though It can bo eaol-
ly seen that the Turks might apieal
to It now In their predicament.
A further result of the note .f
the Pcwers wns tho announcement In
Constantinople that n meeting of the
National Assembly has been called to
' dlscusc the situation. This Is taken to
menu that Turkey may accede to all
the demands of the allies, even to
the giving up of Adrlnnople and the
Aegean Inlands, the calling of tho
Assembly being only the shifting of
responsibility in order to prevent u
cabinet crisis.
, On the other hand, an ultimatum
has been dispatched from the allies
to tho Ottoman Government, giving
It fourteen daya In which to make u
favorable reply to their demands.
At the same time tho four Govern
ments have delegated to Dr. S. Dan-
leader of tho llulgarliiu delega
tion, discretion to break off all
negotiations und resume tho wnr nt
uny moment.
In scmo circles Germany Is blamed
for the prolongation of tho delibera
tions and Turkey's refusal to come
to terms, and In Italy Austria. is
blamed.

H parable
H YOUNG MAN was planning his career.
His heart was swelling with great thoughts
of world's peace conferences, international
arbitration leagues, hospitals where humanity 's
most terrible bodily ills could be fought, and many
another scheme for "uplifting the race;'" but when
he actually began to work, all he could find xvtts
hungry children, toiling mothers, discouraged
fathers. These things seemed too small for one
with such great thoughts.
Walking alone one day he met a strange little
man who had an old-fashioned "peep show," and
xvho offered him a sight. Weary with his thoughts
he sought diversion. The first sight was of a man
turning a small sluice gate, a very petty business,
as it seemed, but sandy wastes became covered with
fruit and homes. He looked again and saw a man
dying, almost alone, in the heart of a savage
continent; throwing his life away one might have
said. But following his work came the Cross, and
la:o and life. He looked once more, and saw only
a land of violence and distress, and a babe in a
manger, and -wondered why any one should spend
time on such a scene. ' A window in the farther side
of the stable was opened, and through it he saw the
culture of modern times, nations at peace, and in the
distance the beautiful city of God.
In an instant the man and show were gone, and
in their place was a tittle shivering child, looking
into a baker's window and crying. He suddenly
renumbered that it was Christmas Eve, and taking
the little one in his arms he entered the path of
humble service.

ISN'T IT PLAIN?
That an indifferent mau is a doomed man.
That people who hunt for faults seldom find anything else.
That the man who goes out to meet trouble n ill only have a
short walk.
That good works are the evidence of salvation, not the condition
or the nieaus.
Thnt tliPre are plenty of people who aro very pleasant while
they can have their own way.
That most of rani's letters were written from piison and yet he
never wrote a lino that had a groan in it.
That the devil could never get a follower if he couldn't make
a foundation of sand look as safe as a solid rock.
That there are men who ask God to lead them in many things
who trust to their own judgment in politics. Selected.
NO GROUND FOR ELATION
Announcement was made from Frankfort a few days ago that the
deficit in the state's finances had been decreased since November 30th
by $1,012,358,113. The outstanding warrants at tbut time ainouuted
to 12,121,032 2, with $434,83(5.21 in the Treasury, while at the pree
cut time there are $71K),371(.U1 in the Treasury.
On the face of these figures it might be supposed that the state's
financial condition is not ns alarming as the press of the state has
mado it appear within the last six weeks. But The Evening Post, in
an editorial, Saturday, shows that tho present decrease in the deficit
does not really mean that the state's finances for the year are in any
tatter condition than former reports indicated. The decrease is due
to tho fact that most people pay their taxes just before the penalty is
imposed, December 1st, and these taxes are turned in to the state
Treasury during the month of December. Aud while they have come
in Htilliciently witbiu this month to make the announced reduction in
the deficit, there will not be sufficient receipts hereafter to continue
the reduction or hold the deficit at its present figures, and so, by the
end of the year, the state will be something like two millions in debt.
The great need is a complete overhauling of the state's tax sys
tem. This would necessitate a special session of tho Legislature,
which tho Governor is averse to calling. Possibly he is wise. Legis
latures are expensive, and not even exerienced Governors can always
succeed iu gettiug only good results from their delilKrations.
Could there be any significance iu the fact that the linilroad
Commission nnnoiinced ita abandonment of the fight for an increased
assessment of the Railroad properties simultaneously with the dis
covery of the momentary lessening of the strain upon the state Treas
ury? If so, either tho Itailrouds have been unjustly harrassed aud
persecuted or the Commission is untrue to the trust imposed upon it.
Equity and not expediency is the only justification of an in
creased assessment, and, if equitable, it can not bo relinquished.
Gospel Meetings Close
Great Interest Continued Even
Hundred Express Desire
Tho Gospel meetings closed Sunday
night with over forty responding to
the appeal for seekers after God.
Throughout, tho addresses wen' of
high order. That they wero w.'ll
appreciated was shown by the fact
that tho great chaie was jacked
every night witli an audlencu that
showed intense Interest. Wo cannot
hero follow tho sermons given 'n
detail, but thcro was a logical con
tlnulty, and a clear presentation of
the fundamental truths of tho Gos

Tho addrcsu of each evening was
summed up In a motto over the ros
trum. They wore as follows:
