work on the river between Minneapolis
and St. Paul: "This work, while not of
such a character as to radically improve

What Bu Keen Done In a Week A Grue
some Exhibit Proposed.
Chicago, Nov. 21. Four thousand men
have been employed on the World's, fair
grounds this week, and in spite of unfa
vorable weather the contractors Lave
made a good showing. The electricity
building, which wis at a standstill
while the plans were being revised,
has taken a start into the ' air.
The wooden trusses in the towers
of this building have been aban
doned and iron ones substituted. A big
section of the frame work was put up this
week, and 400 cars of lumber are ready for
the building. Tonight all of the iron
work of the mines aud mioiug building
will be finished aud roofers will take
chvge of it Monday. . . , .,'
The Statue of Franklin. '
The big statue of Benjamin Franklin
was incased in a Karment of plaster of
paris yesterday. There is a well-founded
suspicion in t he modeling shop that the
statue of Franklin which will com
mand the entrance to the electricity
building will not be plaster, but of
bronze, and that George Pullman will pay
the expenses of the casting. Mr. Bonet,
superintendent of the modeling shops,
estimates the cost of the bronze statue at
from $3,000 to t4,0u0.

The Intruding- Turk.
The "Turkey" of diplomatists and map
makers means, not the land of the Turk,
but those lands Greek, Bulgarian, Ser
vian aud Albanian in which their enemy
the Turk is atill encamped. On no spot of
Europe, on no spot of the coast of Asia, is
the Turk really at home. He' is everywhere
a foreign intruder, a burglar who has
thrust himself in the houses of other meu.
While other conquests have in time
changed into lawful possessions, either by
the conquerors assimilatiug the conquered,
or the conquered assimilatiug the con
querors, 'the Turk remains as much a
stranger in Europe as he was when he first
came in, more than 500 years back. And
so it must ever be as long us the Turk re
maius a Turk; for no Mohammedan ruler
can, without casting aside the precepts of
his own law, become what a ruler is bound
to be toward the subjects of other re
ligions. It is his first duty as a Mohammedan to
keep men of all other creeds the Chris
tian in Kuroite, the fire worshiper in Per
sia, the Hindoo in India in bondage to
the men of the dominant faith. He there
fore cannot reform; promises of reform
made by the Turk are in themselves worth
less. They are nowhere carried out, unless
when the Turk is afraid to break them
under the eye of more powerful Europeans.
To talk of a "Turkish , government" is
therefore a mere diplomatic convention
ality. There is no "Turkish government."
The object of a "government" is the pro
tection of its subjects, aud that the Turk
does not give. The so called "Turkish
government" is an organized system of
brigandage, with a chief brigand called a
"tyiltaa" at. iu head. Edward A Freeman
