Jjjj;, sible Attack, on Dardanelles Forts.
ij ; London, Nov 23. Europe's nerves
i -were racked today as war clouds low-
; ered over the continent. A stream
car ' of rumors, pointing to the apparent
', fact that both Russia nnd Austria
are girding for a conflict which may
.;, Involve more than half the civilized
world flowed from various sources,
and as the Austrian government or-
- derod a strict censorship on tele-
, i graphic communication, the truth of
; the rumors could not be denied, al-
though their confirmation was also
,' nobtainable.
; Prague sent word that Germany had
ordered the preparation of 130,000
i-1 army reservists to be ready in case
L'l ihe empire is drawn Into the great
'J war that diplomats fear may grow out
j1? of the struggle In the Balkan penln-
m ; su,a-
ji1 Rumors Not in Harmony.
l3 The rumors accord badly with Pre-
I' mier Asqulth's statement last night
, as to the prevailing harmony among
' the European powers. Official statc-
J ' ments fail to dissipate the general
I , anxiety as to the situation.
Nothing has developed in the last
J , 12 hours to show whether the Turks
tk; will find the proposed modifications
Ii in the terms offered by the allied
j, Balkan nations sufficient to induce
jj ' ; them to agree to an armistice pre-
p : paratory to a defintto peace. The
5 ' plenipotentiaries now on their way to
J1 Tchatnlja on behalf of the allies are
i' said to be carrying with them fresli
I' ,i termB of peace which may open the
! door which is still regarded as stand-
i ;i ing ajar for their reception.
11 Ottomans Have Many Reserves
The Ottoman goernmenl points out
!-I that it sllll has half a million sol-
dleis to draw from, while the Bulgn
f l rlans hae none. The allied Balkan
t ;' natfons, however, retort that they are
J now In a position to march 150,
1 ; 000 troops who have heretofore been
i : encaged elsewhere, to swell the bo
I - sieging force in front of the Turkish
'i lines at Tchatalja.
i May Attack Dardanelles Forts,
i .' Should the war continue, U is n3"
J ' snraed In military circles that an at-
f f tack will soon be opened on the forts
if along the Dardanelles, whose fall
would jermit the Greek fleet to bom-
.'i'I bard the Turkish capital.

majqrlty the proposed'" eonstiluttoiidT
amendment requiring officers to main
tain a non-political attitude, except in
states where equal suffrage is In force.
The nmendment was the subject of
wnrm debate.
Dozens of the delegates were on
their feet demanding to know the
names of the delegates. Speakers
mentioned Mary Ware Dennett and
JqssIc Ashley as the rnemberd re2non
slbel for the stickers.
Miss Ashley defended her action by
declaring she had not ordered the
stickers placed upon the suffragist
stationery through her affiliation with
the Socialist or any other party, but
had done so from a humanitarian
standpoint. Mrs. Dennett said that
she had been promoted to use the
stickers for the same reason.
Tn hor plea against the proposed
amendment Miss Jane Addams declar
ed it was not until three days after
she had decided to enter the camaplgn
in behalf of the Progressive parly that
she remembered her official connec
tion with the woman suffrage associa
tion. She added she failed to see

ing if the amendment carried she
would lender her resignation au first
vice president of the association.
Prolonged applause followed hor
address and the amendment was lost
by a practically unanimous ote.

BIRTH RATE
DECREASING
France Has 100,000 Less
Births in 1911 Than
in 1901
Paris, Nov. 23. Tho birth rate of
France was lower by more than 100,
000 in 1911 than in 1901. Louis
Kiotz, minister of finance, announcing
tills fact to the committee on depopu
lation at iLs first session today, said-
"Military inferiority, economic in
foriorily and the dlmuultlon or the
power of France in tho world will
sooner or later be the inevitable con
sequence of the sterility of ourna
tion." Deaths Exceed Births.
The numbor of births last year ac
cording to M Klolz, was only 712.115
In the whole of Franco, against S57,
S2J a decade ago. In 1907 and 1911,
he snid, the deaths actually exceeded
the births. This was, he continued, a
sad state of things and a danger to
tho country', placing France in a sit
uation of inferiority in comparison
with the other great nations.
Tho lower birthrate, while a per
plexing phenomenon among all civi
lized people, wan, the minister said, a
greater problem In France than else
where. Tho births exceeded the
deaths in 1910 in Germanv .bv S-J9,-813,
in Austria-Hungary by 573,720,
in Great Britain by 117,379; and in
Italy by -161,771, but in France bv
only 71.41S.
Study of Infant Mortality.
In tho course of further remarks
Mr. Kiotz reviewed the ineffective
governmental and private measures
taken in the past to help parents of
large families to limit the hours of
work of women about to become
mothers and to reduce infant mortal
ity. It was necessary, he said, to
study these nnd other factors, includ
ing the evil effects of alcohol. The
relation of drunkenness to infant mor
tality would, he declared, In future be
studied In every part of France.
ATTACKS ON

Workers Magazine
Before the Jury j
Indianapolis, Tnd. Nov. 23'. Attacks!
on District Attorney Charles W. Mil
ler and on the government's prosecu
tion of the 'dynamite conspiracy''
case, as published in the Iron Work
ers' union magazine since the trial
began, were read by Mr Miller before
the Jury today.
The magazine is the official organ
of the International Association of
Eridpe and Structural Iron Workers,
of which most of the 15 defendants
accused of complicity in the McNa
mara dynamite plot are officials
In one article, as read to tho Jury,
the government's prosecution Is re
ferred to as follows:
"On the Bth of October these 45
defendants walked Into court and
pleaded 'not guilty' to the charges of
the steel trust. Then began the farce
of trial, a trial In which money, pres
tige, power was the prosecutor of
want and obscurity, a trial in which
the steel trust masquerades as the
government.
"In the still court room, awesome
with polished marble and rich ma
hogany, oppressive with stilted for
mality, breathing with hidden ha
treds, tin oice of the district attor
ney thunders the cast Indignation, tho
scorn of capital for labor. Listening
to that icy voice, sit the 45 men.
just like you and me. but hideous
monsters of crime to the district at
torney whose white, angel Hfe-shlnes
out in bright virtue against the sinis
ter background of these conspira
tors." Magazine Article.
Referringto the McNamara broth
ers' plea of guilt at Los Angeles, as
read in 'evidence from the magazine,
was:
"The pleas of 'guilty' quickly fol
lowed the arrest. In the hands of an
all powerful enemy, with courts and
Juries committed against them, with
traitors as friends and friends as
traitors, a trial was Impossible The
two McNamaras stood bravely before
the world aud said' 'Yes. we aro war
riors. Wo foushl as seemed to us
best. We fought force with force,
power with power. Maybe wo used
tho wronc weapon. History will tell;
but wo heard the cry, the anguishing
cry, of men and of women ground
In the steel yards, above the voice of
caution. We stand ready to take the
consequences of our act without a
whimper, without an appeal for sym
pathy '
"Silently they entered tho grim
penltcntiarv, misunderstood by their
fellows, execrated by the public.
Victims of Steel Lords.
"But two victims wero not enough
for the steel lords?. Tho organization
Itself raviBt be disrupted. Goaded on
with a desire for vengeance, they
stretched forth cruel hands for more
distinguished victims.
'"Give us Gompersr tuey crieu.
'Give us Darrow! Armies of detec

sociation, rush eagerly up to the wit

workers. The question of open aud
closed shop is often on the lips of
tho vaunting district attorney, whoso
drumllkc tones seem to say, as It
questions tho accommodating witness
es; "Lo, I am the kingdom and tho
power and the glory forever and ever.
Amen.'
