Constantinople, Oct. 29.?Kiamll
Pasha, president of the council of
state assumed the office of grand
vizier this afternoon in succession to
Ohad Moukhtar Pasha, who resigned.
An imperial decree commands the
new grand vizier to prosecute the war |
with all energy.
Although all the changes in the
cabinet have not yet beer made., it
is announced that Nazim Pasha will
be retained as minister of war and
Noraiungshian Pasha as minister of
foreign affairs. Jemalledln Pasha also
wll he retained as shlek-ul-islam.
The change In the grand vizierate
is not expected materially to influence
either the internal or external situa?
tion. When Kiamll Pasha three
months ago accepted the presidency
of the council he became the domi?
nant figure of the cabinet and It was
foreseen that he would succeed to the
The motives for the resignation of
Muokhtar Pasha are not known.
The retention of Noradungshian
Pashu as foreign minister shows that
no startling innovations In the foreign
policy are likely.

ROBERT LAWSON SLAYS FATHER.
Young Laarem County Man Usei
Pistol in Clinton.
Clinton, Oct 28.?About 2 o'clock
this afternoon on Broad street Rob?
ert Lawson shot and killed his father,
Frank Lawson. The dead man has
lived near here all "his life until a year
or so ago, when he moved to Lan
ford. His son lived on land rented
from his father and the killing was
brought on by a dispute as to rent.
The son brought a bale of cotton to
Clinton from his farm near town to
use towards paying off a mortgage he
owed the First National Bank. The
father claimed the cotton was due to
him for rent and thr* itened to shoot
the son if he carried it to the bank.
The son did this and was talking to
the cashier, B. H. Boyd, when his
father joined him and renewed the
Mr. Boyd saw that a quarrel was on
and went into the bank. Almost be?
fore he was out of sight two shots
rang out and after a short Interval
three more. Tttoy were fired by the
son and took effect, four in the fath ?
I er's body and one in the hip of the
mule he drove. Two of the shots en
ter ' the stomach, one the shoulder
and one the br.ck of the head. The
victim lived only a few minutes after
being removed to the city satlon, nev ?
er regaining consciousness.
Sheriff Owens came from Lauren*
in an auto and carried Hob Lawson
to Juil. Young I.awson claims that
his father drew on him and he shot
j in self-defense.
The father had threatened to shoot
his son if he turned the cotton over
to the bank.

New Orleans, < ?et. 27.?It will prob?
ably be little else but weather mar?
ket on the cotton exchange this week.
The question of the date of the first
killing frosts of the season is still
unsettled and the trade will think of
little else until it arrives, or until
the crop has made all that it possibly
can, a stage where frost would be
of no consequence.
Buch a stage is la ginning to be look?
ed up<?n as a possibility by some
traders. it is considered by not a
few that it* the lh'st of November
should arrive without killing frosts.
cold weather could not possibly lower
j the yield this year.

Thursday will end the present pe?

trade is not taking its usual interest
in finners' returns, although, before
Ions;, they ought to furnish a more or
less reliable index to what may be
expected as the total yield.
At the wet k end 4private buyers
may come out with estimates of what
has baen ginned this period but they
will have to be rather sensational to
cause the market to take much no?
