NEW YORK. March 3. A special to t
Ilcr&td from Athens eays : M. Ulonyio
the archbishop of Retlmo , accompanied
thrco Cretan deputies , has presented to t
king a memorial urging tlio union of Crc
with Greece and begging him to persl
In bU patriotic attitude despite the prt
sure of the powers. The Cretans , the niei
orlal pointed out , are unwilling to lay dox
their arms before their desire for union h
been accomplished. King George rcpll
that he was not deviating by a hair's bread
from the original policy announced.
An Albanian force of 1 200 troops with art
and ammunition , which recently reach
Janlna , line been sent thence to varlo
places In Macedonia and Eplrus. Elg
hundred Mohammedan Albanians ha
Rtartcd for l-lats-ona.
The Greek war ships under Admiral Mian
11s have at rived at the Piraeus. It Is ol
clally stated that the Greek troops co
ccnlratod on the Turkish frontier numb
20,000 men. Captain Sachlourla has sti
eucded Commodore Helncck In command
the Greek ncet In Cretan waters.
M. Minothcus , the Cretan archbishop , w
arrived nt tlie Plraeuu recently , died aft
landing. The former military governor
Crete , Abraham Kdhcm Paslu , has reach
the I'lr.ieus on his way to Constantinople.
GREEK MINISTER RESIGNS.
LONDON , March 3. The Athens con
spondcnt of the Dally Mall states that
consequence of the refusal of M. Dclyann
the Greek premier , to send further rcl
forcementa to Crete , the minister of wt
M. W. Sinolcnlz , has resigned. M. Metax
hag been appointed to succeed him. Metax
Is not a member of the Doulo ( leglslatl
chamber ) , where the appointment la u
popular , but he Is said to be the nomlii
of King George.
While the latent news from Athens I
dlcates grave fears that Greece will refute
to comply with the demands of the powe
to withdraw her troops and fleet from t
Island of Crete within six days , datli
Iiom noon jesterday , It la generally reco
nlzed that the measures proposed by t ;
powers , Including the granting of autonon
to Crete under the suzerainty of the sulta
are the bes : that Europe could have adoptc
in view of ( he present complicated clrcui
stances , when the whole Ualkan pcninau
Is ready to ask a quid pro quo for anythli
obtained by Gieece.
There Is eqme comment In diplomatic cl
clcs over the fact that the powers decld
to present Identical notes to Greece , Inste ;
of a collective note , the latter being of mm
stronger character , the change leading
the Impression that the unanimity of t !
powers IB not so conclusive as the mini
tcrs , ' utterances seek to convey. The situ
tion qrcatcs fears that while Greece in ,
bb bent to the will of the. powers wltho
further coercion , fresh jealousies will arl
ab soon as the Greeks- arc ousted and tl
now regime } n. Crete Is Inaugurated. It
( suggested In some quarters that even th
may force Lord .Salisbury to desert the po
cert of the powers , and declare that Ore
Britain will not authorl/o the coercion
Greece. Hut It Is realized that this , Invbtv
an Instant , violent * diplomatic quarrel \vl
Russia and Germany , and possibly war wl
oneor both.
Premier Delyannls has long confert'nc
with King George daily and the cabinet
now setting to discuss the character of tl
reply to be given the Identical notes of tl
powerh , and the military measures necesc
tatcd by the situation. Thctsaly , where tl
Turkish troops on the frontier are takli
up an Irritating attitude , IB likely to pr
ducc a eollisioii-at any moment. Meanwhi
preparations continue for mobilization ai
dispatching furtlrer reinforcement * ) to tl
seat of danger. A monster demonstrate
has been arranged for tomorrow In favor
the policy of resistance to the. mandate
the powers. This is the dominant feeling
tha populace , and the belief Is unlvers
that even If Colonel Vatsos Is recalled 1
the government his officers will resign the
commissions and join the Insurgents.

LINCOLN , March 3. ( Special. ) Today
was Omaha charter day for the Plate senate
and the entire time from morning until even.
Ing adjournment was given up to the con
sideration of the bill which , It It passes tha
houac , will bo the fundamental law for tlio
metropolis of the state for two yc.ira to
come at least. The consideration of the
chatter wait of the most perfunctory nature.
Dill few of the senators paid attention to tlio
reading of the lengthy document , and tha
ttsslon was practically made up of Senator
Graham of Frontier , who occupied the chair ,
Senators Howell and Jeffcoat of Douglas , and
Ibo reading clerk. With but one or two ex
ceptions each section wap agreed to by com
mon consent and not once during the entire
day was there any division. Mr. Howell
explained several sections to one or two sena
tors who asked < iur < nons ! on minor points ,
The only thing approaching a protest was ono
rnltcd by Mr. Goudrlug , who objected to the
proposition to rcduco the salary of the city
treasurer below $5,000. Many of the sectlona
lo which the conimlttco on municipal affairs
had offered no amendment were agreed to
by common consent without reading and In
this way a grcal deal of time was caved. Tlia
charter , as It was finally agreed to this after ,
noon , differs very materially from the origi
nal charter Introduced early In the seslon
by Senator Howell. The original document
comprised seventy-five largo printed pugea
and the amendments reported by the com
mltteo on municipal affairs Include twenty-
one additional pages of printed matter.
As amended the charter bill provides for-
a spilng election day on Ihs first Tuesday-
In March. Hut aa It will be Impossible td
hold an election this year upon that data ,
the charter , ns It now stands , provides that
a municipal election shall be held on tin
sixth TuesJay after the charter goes Into ,
effect. The bill carries an emergency clans *
and If U receives twenty-two vqtps , ln tlie * .
senate and slxty-eevcn In the house , may-
go Into effect at any time within the next
thlrly days , providing Its progress Is not.
Unduly delayed In the house. The first elec
tion would then occur early In May. If the-
bill does not pass with the emergency clause-
the first election cannot take place until some
time In August. The city officials elected Ihls
under thlsrcharter will hold their offices ,
year
until the third Monday In March , 1800 , anu\
after this year the municipal election will
occur every three years. .
SALARIES OF CITY OFFICIALS.
The city officials will receive annual txiU
arlcs as follows : Mayor , $2,500 ; treasurer. .
? 4,000 ; comptroller , $1,800 ; police judge ,
$1,200 ; clerk. $1SOO ; chief of police , $2,000 ; .
attorney , $2.500 ; ass'.stanl altorney , $1SOO ;
prosecutor , $900 ; engineer , $2,500 ; assistant

specter , $1,200 ; policemen
per month. Of the olllcers enunioratcd the
mayor , treasurer , comptroller , police judge ,
anil
clerk , and tax commissioner are elected
the others appolnlcd. In the original charter-
bill the tax commissioner was to have been
appointed by the mayor ; but Mr. Howell
yielded lo the wishes of many property own
ers and agreed to an amendment making the-
office elective.
The senate made a still further cut liv
the salaries of the treasurer , police judge ,
attorney and engineer. Originally the bill
paid the trea&urrr $5,000. This salary was
on motion of Mr. Wateon cul to $4,000. The
salary of the police Judge was cut from
$1 500 to $1.200 ; the allorney from $3,000 to ,
and the engineer from $3,000 to
$2,500 ;
* Tho' senate made material alterations In.
the original provisions relating to the ad
visory board. Originally the charter provided
advisory bdard to consist of
vided fop an
comptroller , building Inspector
the city engineer ,
and flro departments
specter , chiefs of the police
ments and heolth commissioner , all of which
officers except the comptroller were to bo
appointed by the mayor , who was himself
to bo ox-olflclo chairman of the board. Thla
board was to perform all the duties now
assigned to the Hoard of Public Works , .
Hoard of Health , and the Hoard of Park
Commissioners. As amended the charter
provides for three distinct bodies , an ud-
vlsory board , Hoard of Public Works and
Hoard of Park Conimlssloneifi. The ad
visory board consists of the officers enumer
ated and Is given control of the public
health , of the disposition of garbage , of
plumbing Inspection , and shall alee receive
bids and lot contracts for all material and
supplies required by the city. The Hoard
of Public Works , as provided for by amend
ments adopted today , Is to conolst of tlio
city engineer , the comptroller and building
Impector. The Hoard of Park Commis
sioners remains a It Is constituted at pres
ent , except that the members arq to rccelvo
no compensation.
F1UB AND POLICE COMMISSION.
The new charter provides for a Hoard ,
at Fire and Police Commissioners , to con
sist of the mayor , who shall bo ex-ofllclo
Ihe chairman , and four members to be ap
pointed by the governor , iot more than two.
at them to belong to the name political parly

3i- hold the same political
inal charter contained a provlilon that the
chiefs of the pollen ana flro departments
khould bo electors of thu city when ap
pointed. The committee on municipal afTalra
iiibJtliuted the word "residents" for "elec
tors , " but Mr. Hansom registered a pro-
Ir-st and the amendment was rejected.
When the bill had been completed the
; ommlttco voted to recomnu-nd It for P BB-
