LONDON', Sept. a The question of the
Dardanelles becomiug a passageway for
Russian war-ships to the Mediterranean
just now exceeds in interest even the war
in Chili. Well authenticated rumor says
that the foreign oliice will not stand idly
by and see the Mediterranean invaded by
a Russian fleet under the guise of volun
teer transports or otherwise. Tte plain
question seems to be whether England
will have to protest alone, or be sustained
In such a course by the powers of the
triple alliance. No doubt is entertained
that Russia has been encouraged to her
present aggressive attitude by an under
standing with France, and feels safe, with
France as a friend, against any unsup
ported action on the part of Great Britain.
The situation is becoming very grave, and
is so regarded both in Berlin and Lon
don. The Weak Toint in England's Case.
Lord Salisbury, it is reported, will
shorten his vacation in order to deal with
the problem, which is greatly compli
cated Jby the unprecedented coolness of the
sultan toward the British government. A
Constantinople dispatch says that the
French and Russian ambassadors have
been dinning into tbe sultan's ears the
fact that, with all England's charges
against Russia of intended aggrandize
ment at tbe expense of Tnrkev, the only
great power that has actually taken
possession of any important part of the
sultan's dominions is England herself,
and that England, before professing
friendship for Turkey, ought to give up
Egypt, if not also Cyprus.
Russia Want. Const. ottnople.
The saltan therefore is for the time be
ing prejudiced against England on ac
count of Egypt, although also upholding
Bulgaria against Russian machinations.
It is remembered that the Crimean war
was preceded by .England's rejection of a
Russian proposal' that England sbou'.d
take Egypt and allow Russia to have
Constantinople, and there is an uneasy
feeling that Russia will fight again ratLeir
than permit England to hold Egypt with
out compensation to Russia.
POISONING AS A BUSINESS.
Old Hungarian Women Who "Remove"
Objectionable Person, for Cash.
LosdoS, S -pt. 2. A dispatch from Pesh
says that the poisoniiig mania is again
spreading in southern Hungary, and three
old women of the class of professional
poisoners have been arrested. It appears
that these women, for a compensation.
poison people whom other people wish to
get rid of. Their patronage comes chiefly
from wives who have got tired of, their
husbands, and seek that method of di
vorce. The-e is reason to believe that a
multitude of persons have perished in tbia
way, and each of the women now arrested
ia aaid to have had at least ten victims.
Sensational disclosures are expected at the
approaching trial, as the prisoners are
charged with having practiced their ne
farious trade among some prominent fam
ilies of southern Hungary.

traffic ceased, thereby causing much Joss
to the people who depeud on that high
way of commerce.

BERLIN', Sept. 2. The appearance of the

THE MAN WHO SCARED THE NUNSW
He Will Probably Sever Be Punl.hed for
Lack of Identification.
New Tobk, Sept. 2. The man who
stole in among the sleeping nuns of the
Dominican convent in Brooklyn, at Mor-
gan avenue and Harrison place, after mid
night Sunday morning, will not be pun
ished. Two of the sisters whose slumbers

from the shock. The fellow was evi
dently well acquainted witb the surround
ings of tbe convent," said the mother
superior, "but the experience will never
be repeated again, as iron bars will be put
up at each window."
Why He Can't Be Identified.
The reason he cannot be punished is the
peculiar one that none of the nun3 can
identify him. None of them is permitted
to look upon the face of a man. Their
rules, it is stated, they observed, eveu in
the hour of their terror. Ou the first
alarm, the sister superior lit the gas in
the upper hall. The assailant's features
were, therefore, for some minutes clearly
visible to all of the sisters, hail they chosen
to have looked upon them. But, accord
ing to the statement of the sister superior
and tha t of Father Fentgraf, they bid
their faces. Consequently none of them,
even had they had a chance to make tha
attempt, could have i-ientiUd the ruflSaa.
