After having been found, the men
stated that it required superhuman ef

Belgrade, Servia, Oct. 1. Troop
trains were leaving the capital all
night long for Kish and other garri
son towns near the Turkish frontier.
Many business houses in this" city
have been compelled to close on ac
count of their employes being ordered
to join their regiments. The street

Servia Prepares for War.
Servia is preparing for war. Gen
eral mobilization of the army has been
ordered, and within 24 hours it is be
lieved, in official circles, the nation
will be ready to meet Turkey in a
death-grapple for control of the Bal
kans. The capital is seething witn
excitement. The streets are filled
with eager crowds, among which there
is a liberal sprinkling of uniformed
reservists, oh their way to the rail
way stations to join the colors. For
weeks the public has clamored for war
with Turkey, and news of the order
to mobilize the army was received
with general rejoicing.
Accdrdtng to newspaper reports, the
Servian Minister to Turkey, Dr. Nen
adovitch. has left Constantinople for
The Sofia news came that the mo
bilization of the Bulgarian army had
been ordered, and that Turkish troops
were concentrated near Adrianople, on

EVERYTHING RIPE FOR
Turkey's ar ith Italy Offers Oppor

Long Sought for Conflict.
London. England, Oct. 1. Everything
according to the dispatches from the
disturbed centers seems ripe for tho
long expected conflagration in the
- Tne armies of the Balkan states arc
preparing for war with reverish ac
tivity. The mobilization order jriven
out,yesterday is .being put into effect
The various nations concerned appear
to believe the longed-for moment has
at last arrived when they will be called
upon to march against Turkey.
Turkey Is Willing.
The Turkish government, diplomats
assert, would like to find an easy way
out ot the war with Italy and thinks
a war in the Balkans would give the
Ottoman government the outlet. The
Bankan States, at the same time, are
anxious to get at their big neighbor
while she is involved with one of the
great powers. There still remain but
two points in regard to which diplo
mats, can continue to maintain optim
ism. The first of these is the fact that
winter is approaching and will render
active war operations difficult while
the second is that the European powers
are working in accord and nave warned
the belligerent little states that, what
ever might be the outcome of a war
they would not be allowed to extend
any of tneir borders so as to take in a
portion of Macedonia.
At present there appears to be no
reason why any of the European pow
ers shoulu become Involved it war
breaks out, although it is recognized by
the diplomats of every country that it
would take very little to'draw them in
once the trouble is started.
Austria, it is believed here, will be
forced to mobilize a few of her army
corps in Bosnia-so as to prevent Serv
ians from entering the Sanjak of Novl
pazar, which is a part of old Servia
and which that country is anxious to
recapture. In fact, it is understood,
the possibility of securing that addi
tion to her territory Is the inducement
for Servia to join forces with her
neighbors against Turkey.
Russia May 3IoblIize Army.
With the Austrian army thus partly
mobilized, Rusia. it Is argued may
think it necessary to do likewise as
she particularly desires to prevent a
repetition of the situation which oc
curred during the preceding crisis,
when she was compelled, under the
threat of Germany, to change her Bal
kan policy because of her unprepared
ness to protect Poland against the
armies of Germany.
Besides their natural hatred or Tur
key and their desire to extend their
territory, all the Balkan states, it is
pointed out, have quarrels, with Turkey,
arising out of the chronic disorder in

subjects of the Balkan states on Turk

the guards have been at each others'
throats at every opportunity.
Besides Servia's desire to annex the
Sanjak of Xovlpazar, Bulgaria, diplo
mats aver, wants a slice of Macedonia,
Greece wishes for Crete, and Monte
negro has designs on Albania. All the
four Balkan states have said they
would be satisfied with the introduc
tion of reforms in Macedonia. Turkey
has promised reforms but they have
The most urgent and categorical rep
resentations in favor of the preserva
tion of peace in tho Balkans have been
offered to Sofia by the Russian foreign
minister. Sergius Sazanoff.
The other members of the triple en
tente, France and Great Britain are
likewise, using their .good Influences,
while the members of the triple alli
ance, Germany, Austria and Italy, are
just as determined to prevent the out
break of hostilities.

The Greek minister here received a
telegram today fiom the Greek premier
and war minister, Venezlos, stating
that the Hellenic government had de
cided to mobilize its land and sea forc3s
in concert with the other states. The
mobilization orders of the four king
doms go into force instantly and men
liable to serve must join the colors
within 24 hours. The orders also ap
ply to subjects living abroad.
Balkan difficulties have developed with
alarming rapftlity to a point where
only a spark is needed to set the whole
of southeastern Europe aflame. Three

president had desired to name B. A.'

All the correspondence between pres
ident Roosevelt and the late Mr.
Harriman covering the period from Mr.
Roosevelt's succession to the office in
1901 until Mr. Harriman's difference
with him in 1906, was placed in evi
dence before the committee.
Out of scores of letters, covering
every subject from exhibits of Indian
pictures to the appointment of fed
eral judges and territorial governors
in Arizona, the senate committee was
able to seeire little new light bearing
on the subject of campaign contribu
tions or the disputed question of
whether president Roosevelt had fi
nally asked Mr. Harriman in 1904 to
raise $240,000 for his campaign.
Appointment of Arizona Governor.
The appointment of a governor of
Arizona in 1305 opened one corre
spondence between the two men. Mr.
Harriman recommended chief justice
Edward Kent for governor, to succeed
governor Brodie, and W H. Stillwell
for chief justice, to succeed Judge Kent..
On January 28. 1905, Mr. Harriman
wrote the president he would "very1
much regret" the appointment of B. A.
Fowler, as governor of Arizona. lie
said he had no particular candidate to
urge, but hoped "some other and more

"What is there against Fowler," tho
president asked in conclusion.
Mr. Harriman replied January 30:
"My information is to the effect that
Mr. Fowler is a very strong partisan
of the Santa. Fe,'iand he expressed. the
belief that E-TftfWellstf PrescwEr.'$wt
"an able and fair man."
"As I said before, I have no candi
date to urge." Mr. Harriman added,
"but I trust you will not appoint Mr.
Fowler. I would like to talk to you on
the telephone about this."
Kibbey Flnnlly Xamed.
President Roosevelt replied the next
day, January 31. that it would be "ven-
unpleasant" for him, "with Morton in
my cabinet," to say that he had re
jected Mr. Fowler, "that merely be
cause I heard he was a strong Santa
Fe man" unless there was some specific
objection to him."
"I need hardly tell you," th" presi
dent added, "that if I appointed him, I
would twist his neck as if he was a
chicken the moment I found he was
showing one particle of favor to the
Santa Fe or for that matter, to the
Southern Pacific, or any other railroad,
just as I would twist it if I found he
was discriminating against znv rail
road. How would it do for me to write
him this in practically these words?"
Mr. Harriman again protested against
Mr. Fowler's appointment, saying his
railroad interests did not believe thy
would get a square deal in Arizona. The
series of letters contained no further
reply from president Roosevelt. The
kArizona governorship was filled by the
appointment ot Jos K Kibbey in 1305.
Raising Campaign Fund.
C C Tegethoff, now agent for the
Harriman estate, and former private
secretary to Mr. Harriman, and Charles
A. Peabody, president of the Mutual
Life Insurance company and attorney
for Mrs. Harriman in the administra
tion of the estate, both testified that
Mr. Harriman had told them the rais
ing of the big campaign fund had been
undertaken at Mr Roosevelt's request,
a statement which Mr. Harriman made
before his death, but which was de
nied by Roosevelt
Aside from the file of letters given
the committee, no documentary evi
dence was offered, and out of the many
letters, none was produced except that
written by Mr. Harriman to Sidney
Webster, January 2, 1306, that in any
way bore upon the charee that presi
dent Roosevelt had asked the railroad
man to raise the funds.
The Webster letter, made public by
Mr. Harriman himself during the con
troversy with president Roosevelt oven
the fund, intimated that Mr. Harrimarf
had been asked bv tne president to

men to whom he applied that senator
Depew was to be given tne amoassa
dorship to France.
A letter from Mr. Harriman dated
Xovember 30. 1904, called the presi
dent's attention to the fact that Mr.
Roosevelt had written on October 14,
that he would discuss parts of his mes
sage with Mr. Harriman at a later time.
Mr. Harriman said he had learned that
other railroad men knew what the
president intended to recommend relat
ing to railroads, and that he was "very
apprehensive" about the matter.
"I sincerely believe it would be best
for all interests that no reference be
made to the subject," he added
On the same day, after Mr. Harrim.in
had talked over the telephone with
secretary Iioeb. president Roosevelt
wrote the railroad men saying his mind
was made up on the railroad question.

Austin. Tex., Oct 1. Fearing that
rebel soldiers might so resent the ac

attack the federals while still on

the preparations of tne' Mexican gov

The governor is willing for these
foreign troops to detrain at Del Rio

right on the border, while Marathon
is almost 100 miles away.
Answering the governor's wire of

Douglas, Ariz., Oct. 1. The arrest of several officers and men of the Ninth
United States cavalry, Mexican consul Cuestaj United States and Mexican secret
service men, jncluding PowelTRoberts, a former member of the El Paso police'f orce,
now acting chief of Mexican secret service here, probably willbe effected .this after
noon upon complaints to be sworn to by sheriff "Wheeler or D. J. Genardini, charg
ing entry into Hotel Mexico?, a local hostelry, and searching 23 rooms without
search warrants, early Monday morning.
Sheriff Wheeler arrived in the city this morning from Tombstone and has
since been in consultation with attorneys, deputies, and justice Ben Rice, before
whom the warrants will be sworn c-ut-
At first it was thought no section of the Arizona statutes covered the offence
but one has been found, lawyers say.
MEXICAN OFFICERS DIRECTED SEARCH.
According to the statement of Genardini, and the admission of army officers
J and Roberts, orders were received by Col.
to arrest and .hold any rebel leader in Mexico caught in this aty. As a result,
the secret service men of the United States and Mexico have been working quietly
together in an effort to determine whether the reports of rebel leaders' presence
Late Sunday night a tip was receivedby thev military that Joaquin Esquer
had been seen to-enter Hotel Mexico on Ninth street. A party formed, said to in
clude the Mexican consul, two United States army officers, several detectives of
both governments, a squad of negro soldiers of the Ninth, and the house was sur
rounded. Roberts knocked on the door. Genardini, the proprietor, an American
citizen, opened it. He was told that Esquer had been seen entering his place.
Roberts said he wanted to search.
SEARCHED WITHOUT "WARRANT."
Although Genardini mistook Roberts for a United States official, he refused
to allow the search without a search warrant. The military officers, Genardini
declares, stepped forward and said they were acting under orders of the secretary
of war and needed no warrant. The party then proceeded to search the house.
Genardini stepped into the back yard, where a negro soldier presented a rifle
at his breast, he says, driving him back into the house. Esquer was not found.
Genardini reported the matter yesterday afternoon to the sheriff's office, which
resulted in the arrival of sheriff Wheeler this morning-. "Wheeler says he will pro
ceed, if possible, to land everyone implicated, in jail, including the officers and sol
diers of the United States army.
This is not the first time the Mexican officers have led American officials
astray, the sheriff says, and he declares that they need an example to forestal
-ferareviWatftnsleth'S-cbuntry's coastltHtion anaflaws.'" """"
' ' STRONG PROTESTS ARE MADE.
Mr. Wheeler, who will telegraph congressman Carl Hayden and" senators Henry
Ashurst and Mark Smith this afternoon, asking them to make personal protests to
the federal government and urge the punishment of those engaged.
It developed that th& Mexican secret service, through Powell Roberts, applied
to the federal, county and city authorities a few days ago for search warrants,
and warrants of arrest for Esquer but were refused, as they could show no charge
in the United States against him, nothing save political charges against him in
Mexico. Therefore they acted knowingly in violation of the constitution and
laws, it is charged.
Douglas is thoroughly wrought up and many private telegrams are being sent
to all parts of the country protesting to influential persons against such acts.
Only a few weeks ago an equally unw arranted search was made of the home
of Robert Solman, a British subject. Wheeler promised to arrest them the next
time and is doing his best to "make good."
MORE RIFLES AND CARTRIDGES.
Five hundred rifles and 100,000 rounds of 30-30 cartridges were received here
late yesterday by the Mexican consul from the Madero government. The arms
will be used as needed to arm additional troops in Sonora. This may bring the
question of state rights to a focus, as the .shipment is said to have been consigned
to the state government of Sonora through the consuL Federals therefore should
not touch them without the state's consent. This may result in a renewal of
mutual charges- of disloyalty preferred recently by governor Maytorena and Gen.
Augustin Sanjines against each other t'o Madero.
