LONDON, Nov. 10.-Rumanla Is re
ported to have placed strong bodies of
troops at three points on tho Bulgarian
frontier. Tho movement la believed to bo
tho result of diplomatic arrangements, so
that pressure can be applied to Bulgaria
In order to keep Uio terms of tho armis
tice within moderation.
CONSTANTINOPLE, Nov. lG.-(I3y way
or Kustendjc.) An armistice with tho
Bulgarians will In all probability bo ar
ranged within tho next few days, and
this will bo followed by direct negotia
tions for peace.
The Ottoman government fully realizes
that further resistance can only prejudice
tho position of Turkey still more, while
its outcome Is extremely problematical
and might lead to even more humiliation.
Hitherto only a few of tho soldiers
badly wounded In battle havo arrived,
hero. A number of the Invalided men
are Infected by gangrcno and blood pois
oning. Physicians say that many of tho
wounds have been self-inflicted.
Nono of the cholera patients are sent
to the city, but little precaution Is taken
to prevent refugees bringing In the dis
ease. Fugitives continue J.o crowd around the
city's walls. Tralnloada of them ure
being sent off dally along tho railroad
into Asia Minor.
Many of the foreign residents who were
willing to risk tho chanco of a fanatical,
outbreak are departing for Kuropo be
cause of the cholera.
The departuro of. prominent members of
the'Xung Turk fcarty for Europe Is con
sidered by many as foreshadowing a pos
sible return of tho old regime.
The bulk of public opinion la. beginning
to rally to tho view takenby responsible
statesmen, and It Is generally hoped that
the best possible conditions of peaco will
be secured. It Is' recognized that prac
tically tho whole of European Turkey Is
lost, so much so that tho banks and tho
council of tho Ottoman public debt are
already taking stock of their own Inter
ests In the lost provinces In View of pro
tecting themselves when tho final settle
ment comes up for discussion.
Tho foreign military attaches here are
of tho opinion that tho Bulgarians are
finding many difficulties and they havo
been unable to bring up a sufficient army
to Insure a successful attack on the
Tchatalja lhnes. which must be mado di
rect on the front.
Tho scheme of defense drawn up by the
commanders of the foreign warships here
provides only for tho protection of for
eigners and not the preventlln of mas
sacres, tho fear of which, however, has
now been largely dissipated. The German
cruiser, Ooebcn, arrived today.
News from the Interior of Asia Minor
shows that there Is some unrest, and
fears aro expressed that fanatical and
revolutionary outbreaks may accur there
If tho central Turkish government should
become greatly disorganized. y

SOFIA. Nov. 16. The Bulgarian cabinet
communicated to the allies today tho
contents of a letter from tho Turkish
grand vizier on the subject of an armis
tice and an Interchange of views between
tho Balkan governments is in progress.
It'lsVUd that unless peace conditions aro,
accepted by Turkey within twenty-four
hours after their presentation hostilities
will be continued, as tho Bulgarian gen-,
rrals are not willing to permit Turkey
to gain valuablo time by wrangling over
the conditions.
A prompt acceptance may avert the
entry of the Bulgarian troops into Con
stantinople. It Is believed Bulgaria will
not object to Turkey retaining Constanti
nople and the Dardanelles.
King Ferdinand of Bulgaria Is now at

The governor's public career nt De

'William Larrabeo, business man, legis
lator, governor of Iowa, was a nativn of
Connecticut, nearly 81 years old. HoM
dent of Iowa for sixty years, he had been
a largo factor In tho growth and devel
opment of the state.
Governor Larrabeo was born January SO
1832, son of Adam Larrabce, soldier of
1812, resident of Ledyard, Conn. The fu
ture governor got a common school edu
cation nnd had two months at a private
academy, but his father taught him a
good business education, He left New
England nnd landed In Iowa in 1853. Ho
taught school In Hardin and Allamakee
counties, then was a farm hand, but In
1855 becamo a miller ut Clermont, Fay
ette county. He begun his public career
In 1SCS when ho was elected to the state
senate, remaining a member of that body
until In U85, when he was nominated for
governor of Iowa. Ho was elected and
re-elected nnd served four years, giving
the state a thorough business administra
tion. In the senate he had long been
chairman of tho ways and means com
mittee, and no man ever camo to the
chair of governor of Iowa, more familiar
with ull the varied activities of the state.
itr-IJlitrrn I'nlillc l.lfr.
He was called from his retirement nt
his homo in Clermont to become head
of the newly created board of control In
1898, a position which he filled out of u
senuo of public duty, aiding In establish
ing the system on an enduring barls for

"William, Jr., has Just been re-elected to
a third term In the Iowa house, and
Frederick has been elected to a second
term in the state senate. Mrs. Larrabee
Is almost an well known as her husband,
a woman of much force and character
and always closely associated with the
governor In all his life work.

The feature of Governor Larrabee's life
was that with advancing age he always

llcmocrnU to Harmonise
Difference. .
WAH!NOTON, Nov. 18,-Clerks of tho
housn Ways arid means committee began
work tftday upon tariff rnvlslon bills for
tho Bix'clal session of congress, which
lrrftl(lcnt-elcrt Wilson lias stated ho will
summon to meet next April. Democrntlo
lenders havo been confident for somo
tlmo that tho Incoming administration
would force tho turlff Issue to an Imme
dlata trlul and much of the dotoll 'of th
work of preparing tho bills Is under way.
Suggestions have been mado by influen
tial members of the scnuto within th'.
lust week that a Joint committee, repre
senting house and senata democrats, bo
informally selected before tho special ses
sion begins to go over tho turlff situa
tion and harmonize whatever difference
may exist between the democrats of tno
two bodies upon tho moro Important
tariff schedules. Such action would re
sult In speedy disposition of tariff revi
sion next April, It Is believed.
It has not been determined as yet
whether one general bill will be Intro
duced embracing tho wool, cotton, Iron
nnd steel revisions which the domocrutlc
houso has previously passed, or whether
eucli of theso turlff schedules will again
bu brought In In" tho form of a scparuto
bill,
Democratic leaders are not ngrccd over
the sugar tariff, and this situation 's
puzzling tho uinnugerH of tho party Jn
both houses. The houso freu sugar bill
passed nt tho last session did not meet
the upprovnl of tho democrats In tho sen
ate, and It still rests In a conference
committee.
Tho April session will perfeot a record
of practically continuous work on tho
tariff since the peclul sesHlon called by
President Taft In ltHM. Following the
general revision of that yeur, embodied
In the Puyne-Aldrlch bill, there havo been
attempts to devise a Canadian reciprocity
system uud to rovlso certain schedules
of the tariff law, but no changes In tho
turlff havo been effected slncn the pas
sage of the Payne-Aldrlch law.
