London. l>ec. 3.?The protocol Bf"
ranging an armistice wan signed late
this evening Bf the Turkifh and Uui
gar hin delegate**, the latter represent?
ing also Ser\la and Montenegro.
I*rn>r to this then had been a long
sitting of the TurkiMh council of min?
isters to consider fresh prop >sals sub?
mitted by the allies.
Apparenth the Greek delegute* did
not sign the protocol. At present
nothing is definitely known < n this
point nor of the tern of the armistice
as revised today.
T? rms of the nrmHt.ee as a< > epted
by Bulgaria, provldea th it the truce
shall continue during the entire period
of the peace negotiation*!
Turkey Is to have the right of r? -
vh tualllng all her besieged forces and
S>ll the detached bodies of ottoman
troop* remaining in Macedonia and
?h*? where so well ss the Turkish
populstlons in vir'...us parts cf the
theatre of war
Th" .dihd llalkar nations are to
furnish safe conduct for the revlc
tualllng parties, and the Ottoman con?
voys are to be pemltted to pass. If
necessary, through forces of the al?
Th" blockade of the Aegean and
Adriatic coasts of European Turkey
Is to be raised.
The fact that the negotiations for
the armistl<e wer* regarded as an in?
tegral part of the i>esce negotlstlons
also helped Turkey to secure more
favorable terms than would have
been granted under other circum?
The refusal of Oreec* to sign the
armistice is susceptible of different in?
terpretations. In the first place, as
a tacit arm stlce has been In existence
for more to an a week already, it is
not Impossible tbst the negotiations
may have served to bring about an
I agreement on the general principles
of peace terms, such as would prom?
ise the speedy arrangement of a pesce
treaty when the conference meets, as
Is now expected, in London. In this
ease flu fa* I IHat nreece Is standing

among ths allies, arising from Jeal
ousl*s concerning the possession of
flalonlkl and the insistence of the
Greek* on the capitulation of Adnan
ople. Scutari and Janina
Other point** which may Influence
the situation are to be found in the
fact that Turkey recently agreed to
conclude a separate treaty with
Oreece; tbst Bulgaria apparently is
not unwilling to enter in an alliance
l with Turkey, and that the allies are
H desirous that Turkey shall enter th?
Balkan custom* league.
There It a rumor In 8ofla that a
suggestion has been made to ffffhl d
tuts flnumanla for Oreece in the Bal?
kan leagu?. It seems clear fron the
^ report tha Bulgaria will ignore the
^ Gr**k effort to land sn army in Oal
Hpolis pen nsula and to send her fleet
to attack the Dardanelles, thai the re?
lations bdween Oreece and Bulgaria
ar* ferally strained snd these signs
of dissension among the allies leave
the situation full of dangerous possl
It is r?|orted that France Is trying
to persuade Greece to adopt a less un?
yielding attitude. It Is understood that
th* financial pressure and the exhaus?
tion of their forces had much to do
with the willingness of Bulgaria and
f\ Her\i* to conclude peace, and In this
respect Oreece, which gained her vic?
tories with less expense. Is he-t. r able
to continue hostilities.

a number of complaint! of persons
living betweer Bftehopville and Sum
u r. I , Sumter and Loo , ..unties, have
horn heanl e mcernmg the present
I hodnie of ti e South Carolina Wes?
tern road. These person.- say that the
present schedule is such that they
not come 1.0 town on the railroad
uid do any business lu re during the
day, as they have only two hours by
the schedule ind the lateness of the
train usually reduces this time by half
one farmer, in speaking of the
present schedule, remarked that it
w.is line for Bishopvllle and Harts
vllle, but it certainly was not any good
to Sumter, in so far as giving persons
living on the road the chance to do
h? ir trading In Sumter. He said that
it was a great convenience in hauling
freight, but that the people of his
section, who had expected to gain time
in coming to Sumter by the oper?
ations of the road, still had to use
their own vehicles, if they wished to
d ? any amount of business in town
during tho day.
It seems that since the purpose of a
railroad is to operate so as to obtain the
greatest possible amount of passeng?
er, 88 well a* freight, traffic, that it
would be a good thing for the road
to consider the complaint of these
citizens alon; the route and operate
such a sehet'ule as will satisfy them,
If possible. The farmer, referred to
above, stated that people in his sec?
tion thought that the Chamber of
Commerce ought to take the matter
up with tie road and see if they
could not arrange for a satisfactory
