St. Albans. Sept. 30. Tho Messen
.jfor heads Its editorial column to-day
Vlth tho following announcement:
Frank L, Greene has resigned tho
Vlltorshlp of tho Messenger to take
iffoct October 1. The novspnper will
o Issued under tho direction of John
J. Cushlng, acting editor, until fur
MRS. DODGE SEEKS PARDON.
Montpcllcr, Sept. 30. Governor John
A, Mead will arrive here Tuesday noon
n some tlmo In the afternoon will give
i hearing on the petition for pardon ot
Mrs. Dodge of Lunenburg, now In Statu
prison. Mrs, Dodge was convicted ill 1911
of killing a painter namrd Heath, who
fas at work In her house at Lunen
)urf,. Thero were some peculiar fea
lures about tho case and It Is claimed
.hat new evidence has developed that
vjll wnrrnnt a pardon. Sho will bo rep.
esented by the Hon. Porter H. Dale,
lenntor-clect from Essex county.
St. Petersburg, Sept. 3ft. The mobili
zation of the armies of Bulgaria, Sen-la
md Greece will probably mean imme
diate war, according to the belief held in
political circles litre. Tho nature of Tur
key's military activity tho last few days
Is taken to mean that sho Intends to
make war. In that case the Balkan
coalition has naturally forestalled her In
her endeavor to profit by the rapid con
centration of troops.
Thf opinion is held here that the ac
tion of the Balkan Sthtea has resulted
from the Inability of the powers to deal
with the situation. The cbnvcrsatlons
which the Russian foreign minister, M.
Sa.onoff, has had in London apparent
ly have been barren. It is understood
that' Russia has taken an adequate view
ot the crisis In the Balkans and has
proposed tho radical remedy of putting
Into effect nrtlclo 23 of the treaty of
Berlin, providing for the introduction in
the European provinces of Turkey n
statute giving a measure of self-government
under a provincial governor-general
controlled by tho powers.
The principal task of the powers, In
case hostilities actually break out, will
be to localize thlr scope, as Italy wai
forced to localize hers to a limited
area. Tne Immedlato danger depends
upon the possible action of Roumanra,
instigated by Austria-Hungary. Upon
Bussia virtually devolves thu burden
of keeping Austria and Roumania out
side the ropes. Confidence prevails
that the condition of tho Russian ar
maments Is now such that Russia will
be able to fulfill her mission. Upon
this belief the action of the Balkan
States Is doubtless based.
An imperial ukase Is published to-day
ailing to the colors the reservists In 22
dlstilcts In Poland as a test of mobiliza
tion. The call, it is calculated, applies to
221.IE0 men. The ukase states that the re
serves arc called simply to test the per
centage of arrivals nnd the time con
sumed, after which they may depart for
An official note explains that the trial
mobilization was decided- upon this spring
and has no reference to the tense situa
tion in the near East.
London, Oct. 1. A Sofia despatch says
that tho mobilization raises the Bulgar
ian army to a strength of 400,000 men.
Martial law has been declared in the dis
tricts of Fhlllppopolls and Burgas and th
Sebranje has been con.oked In extraord
inary session for national Independence
day, Oct. 5.
BRLGRADE IS SEETHING.
Belgrade, Servia, Sept. 30. War prep
arations are being carried on with
fev.'i-lsh hnste. General mobilization of
tht Servian army has been ordered and
It Is expected will bo well under way
wltbln 24 hours. Tho publication of news
of military movements is forbidden.
According to newspaper reports the
Servian mlnliter to Turkey, Dr. Nena
fiovltch, haa left' Constantinople for Bel
grade. Belgrade Is seething with excitement.
The mobilization of the Bulgarian army
simultaneously with that of Servia has
added enthusiasm to the occasion.
Beverly. Mass., Sept. 'XI, President
Tuft heard to-day from Otto F. Stlfel,
a Taft leader In St. Louis, that Gover
nor Hadley of Missouri was now commit
ted to the Taft candidacy. The Presi
dent had been Informed late last night
by telephone nnd telegraph that Gover
nor Hadley had refused to endorse his
candidacy unless the President came out
in favor of presidential preference pri
maries and "unbossed" southern repre
sentation In republican convention. The
President refused to discuss these ques
tions over the telephone with Mr. Stlfel
and had nothing to say to-night about
Governor Dudley's attitude.
HADLEY REPEATS STATEMENT.
Jefferson City, Mo., Sept. 20. In a
short statement to-night Governor Her
bert S. Hadley reiterated the Btand ho
took last night at St. Louis in regard
to the presidential race. The Governor
declared he had heard nothing from
Presidoi.t Taft. Ills statement follows:
"If President Taft will vigorously urge
the adoption of these two propositions,
the presidential primary and a chango
in southern lepresentation, I feel con
fident he will materially strengthen his
own and the party's cause before tho
American people. In view of tho occur
renccs of the Chicago convention and
the unquestioned public sentiment in
favor of both these reforms, the falluro
of the convention to provide tor a change
in tiic basis of southern representation
nnd to endorse presidential primaries
was in my opinion reactionary and inexcusable."

Mr. Murphy and the leaders arc not

Murphy says the. convention Is to be un

be given to test the sentiment of tho
delegates concerning the candidates
whoso nurai'S have been strongly uiged.
Leader Murphy's closest advisers admit
