SEDIL-HAHR, Dardanelles, Dec 7.-A
Greek squadron composed of six warships
was Righted off tho entrance to the
(traits at 3:30 this afternoon.
A number of vessels of the Turkish
leet aro concentrated In tho Dardanelles
ready for action and the straits are be
lieved to ba thickly strewn with mines.
A report was current a few days ago
that forty Greek transports were on the
way to the Gulf of Suros with Bulgarian
and- Greek troops on board. Whether the
Greek squadron formed the escort to
these transports or is acting Independ
ently has not been ascertained. "
It Is believed tha,t the Turks have con
centrated two entire divisions of troops
with a considerable force of artillery
from Asia Minor on tho Gallipoll penin
sula and It Is expected that these will
resist any attempt to land.
The Greek navy apparently has ac
cepted tho challenge hurled by the Turks
in tho recent order to tho sultan's war
ships to cgncentrate In the Dardanelles.
The approach of both fleets to the his
toric straits Indicates that the first Im
portant naval engagement of tho Balkan

WASHINGTON, Dec. 7. The landslide
of 1912; how It happened and the futil
ity of an attempt to reorganize the "G.
O. P." on the old linos were the. themes
upon which played the wit and humor
of the Gridiron club at the annual fall
dinner tonight. Events of political Im
portance and actions upon which turned
national Issues were treated In a tiptrit of
levity and fun. Underlying each Jest and
quip and skit were touches of human
sympathy and Kindliness for the victims
of the November avalanche, as well as
some bits' of homely atlvlco and warning
for the victors that kept everybody In
Not even his late political ' enemies
failed to welcome the pathetic tribute to
President Taft In the song rendered by
the Gridiron quartet, appealing to him,
"Not to forget us when you go away."
The president sat and listened with tho
members of his cabinet scattered about
the banquet hall.
The fun started early. It was discov
ered that the usually lmmaculato hall was
not as tidy as ft should be, and a "white
wing" was sent about gathering all sorts
of litter. This turned out to bo "cam
paign rubbish," and each find brought
forth a ripple of applause. lie pulled
out from the bandstand a pair of moose
horns, and the club members tossed into
his bag some wornout souvenirs of tho
campaign. Sucll were the "Last Positive
Predictions of Senator DIxdn and Charles
D. Miles," "That Smile That Wpuldn't
Come Off," "The Bluff at Big Business,
O. K.'d by BUI Bryan;" a couple of old
empty wallets,, one marked, "C. P. T."
and the other "G. W. P." the peace
treaties, tho commerce court and the
"Hopes of 'Henry Cnbot Lodge for the
Chairmanship of the Foreign Relations

Unlike -other clubs, the Gridiron club
Initiates Its members In public, and this
time it acquired two worthy young jour

Mystery of Double
to Remain Unsolved
CATLETSBUUG, Ky.7 Dec. 7.-With the
death late last night of James York, the
man Involved In tho hotel tragedy, the
opinion prevailed today that the mystery
that has surrounded tho case may never
be solved. That Minnie . Turner, the
woman found dead in the hotel, Ida Gul
let and York were poisoned there appears-
to be no doubt, but how or when
Is not known.
The testimony at the coroner's inquest
yesterday that a beer bottle found in tho
room was not there when tho room was
assigned to the three guests, but was
taken to tho room by one of the trio, ap
pears to indicate that the poison or sub
stance that caused the death of Miss
Turner and York was contalnned In It.
The Gullet woman still adheres to her
story that she has no knowledge of how
or by whom her companions mot their
death. She declares that notther of them
conveyed tho beer bottlo or any recep
tacle to the room.
Wilson Will Get Two
SACRAMENTO. Cat. Dec. 7. -'Roosevelt

though he will havo but cloven of the
state's thirteen electoral votes. . Tho
other two will bo caBt for Wilson.
These figures are final but will not
be made official until the returns from
Los Angeles county have been formally
audited by Secretary of State Jordan.
Jordan announced today that he would
certify the result to the governor Im
mediately ujon the completion of that
audit next week.
The Roosevelt plurality is based on tho
totals of the two electoral candidates
receiving the highest vote. They wero
A. J, Wallace, republican, 2S3.C10: Thomas
Griffin, democrat, 283.43. Griffin ran 785
votes ahead of R. F. Delvalle, the other

fifty-seven votes behind Delvalle.

LINCOLN, t.. Dec 7.-Speclal Tele
gram.) The executive cominltlec of tho
State Teachers' association at noon today
passed a resolution directing tho treas
urer to roturn all money paid by any
commercial club for the registration of
A second resolution was passed direct
ing the payment of $1,321 to . the Lincoln
Commercial club, which was paid by the
club for 1.S21 registrations.
Tho testimony developed, tho fact that
the money was paid In a lump sum and
a blanket receipt given for It.
Tho executive cqmmltteo of the .State
Teachers' association In Its final meeting
yesterday, attacked the regularity of Its
registration list for the 1912 meeting held
In Omaha, whon Secretary J. A. Wood
ard of Havelock reported that the. regis
tration totalod 5.8S9.
The motion to return the money was
made by Superintendent Arnot of, Schuy
ley and was seconded by Superintendent
draff of Omaha. Tho return of the money
cancels the membership of thoso teach
ers for whom It was paid.
A committee composed of Messrs. Arnot
of Schuyler and Ulshpp of University
Place was appointed to further investi
gate charges modes of similar methods.
Discrepancies In tho list occasioned the
Investigation which began at 4 o'clock,
and after a short adjournment, extended
till long past midnight, when another ad
journment was taken until 8 o'clock Sat
urday morning. Tho apparent abnormal
registrations In elgtir counties, Gage, Fill
more, Franklin, Hamilton, Butler, York
Saline and Jefferson gave rise to the In
vestigation. Gago showed an Increase of
147 over last year and York ICO, while
the others 'of the eight counties gained
In. similar proportion.
in dlreci contrast, other counties in
all parts of tho state showed much
smaller gains, for instance Dodgo in
creased but seven, while Washington,
dlrecUy.north of Douglas, showed an
Increase of twenty. ' . t't
Other facts brdfiglit our were that of
the i,sS9 reKlBtered,fcs than 4,900 badges
were Issued to members, and as the
badge was the only means of admis
sion, It was taken to mean that 1,000
or more teachers, who woro registered,
did not attend the sessions.
It also developed that 1,000 or more
registrations were turned Into the treas
urer between 6 and 6 o'clock ,on Friday
afternoon, the closing day of the asso
ciation. The fact that these registra
tion cards, which Included teachers from
the various counties were written In a
similar penmanship with an Indelible
poncll also Increased the suspicion
When asked to explain these seeming
discrepancies, Treasurer Woodard, while
an unwilling informant, gave many
Hlntements bearing directly. He said
tho young woman, who had turned In
the cards, was working under his direc
tion, but that the association was not
OBkcd to pay for tho services. Also that
ho had been asked for registration cards
by a representative of the Lincoln Com
mercial club, and that tho regl-tratlons
had been paid in cash by an Individual
who was afterwards asked to appear be
fore tho committee and explain where he
received the money.
On further examination, the Individuals
implicated gave conflicting testimony,
and after a motion was made to refuse
all registrations irregular, a recess was
taken until Saturday morning.
K. V. Parrlsh of the Omaha Commeclal
club was questioned retarding the activ
ity of the club In registering teachers.
He said that during his connection with
the club not 0110 dollar had been paid for
the registration of any member to any
U. V. Parrlsh, publicity manager of the
Omaha Commercial clu.b, . who was one
of the principal witnesses for Omaha, In
referenco to the outcome of the Investi
"The finding of the committee was a
complete vindication of all charges that
tio superintendent of the Lincoln schools
made, to the effect Omaha had resorted
to unfair methods.
"I was called before the committee and
told them that during my connection with
the Omaha Commercial club unfair
methods had never been employed. I told
them I wotlld pay the expenses of an In
vestigation of the Commercial club's
course and furnish them 'the books,
"In the past frequent charges havo 'been
made' that Omaha resorted to unfair
methods, but when called upon to sub
stantiate theie charges there has never
been an lota of proof offered."

' Washington, Dec 7,-President Taft
In a speech to twenty-six governors to
day urged tho adoption of uniform state
legislation, which would moke possible
In this country the adoption of a sys
tem of rural' credits and low Interest
bearing loans to farmers, similar to that
in vogue In many IQuropean countries.
"Wo are not going to adopt a system
over night," said the president, "It is
going to tako a considerable time be
fore the country shall receive the bone
fit of It, but the earlier we begin the
agitation the earlier we shall achieve the
purpose wo have In bringing the matter
to the attention of the public.
"Thero Is no subjoct," continued the
president, "of greator importance to tho
people of tho United Htatcs, than the
Improvement of agricultural methods, the
keeping them up to dato In all agricul
tural communities, the securing of prof
its to the farmer, tho attraction of the
young men of tho country to farming
as a lucrattvo profession nnd the lower
ing of the cost of producing agricultural
products and the lowering of their prlceB
to tho consumer.
"We havo great capital in this country
and we have farming property that Is
producing products of Immense value. It
would seem clear that with theso two
elements it would be possible to Intro
duce a third, by which the farmors en
gaged In producing the crops should bo
able, In view of tho value of what he
produces, and the value of the land on
which it Is produced, to obtain money
on the faith of the land and the faith
of tho product, Which will enable him to
expand his acreage and better his meth
ods of cultivation and production.

"An easy exchange between capital and
farmers with proper security has been
established in Kuropean countries, where
the rate of Interest has been lowered so

A plan to consolidate Omaha, tiouth

prominent' business nnd professional men
of Omaha and Houtlv Omaha.
Within the lust few flays several at
torneys from Hoith Omuha Imve called
upon John P. llreen of Omuha to ills
cush plans fur such 11 reorganization. Mr.
Ill reil .takes the attltudb of a legal ad
viser In tlm matter and does not talk
enthusiastically either way. lie miys,
however, that the sentiment In South
Omaha has changed greatly In favor of
consolidation since tho metier wiu voted
down a llttlo over u year ago. It Is,
said now that Henry Murphy, city at
torney of Synth Omaha, who wan hitherto
opposed to tho lili-a of consolidation, Is
now for tlio greater Omaha Idea.
I'Yanlc A. Agnow, -Joseph J, llreon, and
other prominent attorneys of Kouth

of Omaha on tho matter nnd have

At first they suggested they would con
sent to do this In case they bo given
two commissioners In addition to the
hovun commissioners now constituting the
city commisKtou of Omaha. They were
Informed this was Impossible because the
law provided for tho soven commissioners
and there could be no more. They theii
sought a means to do away with the

time, It Is culd, they will discuss plans
of fortifying themselves ngalnst the
movement that contemplates leaving them
no offices to fill In Houth Omaha after
South Omuha attorneys havo calculated
nnd computed tho population In such a
way that they coticlude the balance of
power In the event of consolidation would
He south of Leavenworth street. This
pleaKes them, as thoy feel that in that
event they should have ut least half the
representation In th new council, If one
were elected under their plan. One of
the objections they make to coming in
under tho present commission plan Is that
practically alt the commissioners live
north of Ieavenworth,

Aside from the buslnesH men of South
Omaha who are said to favor consolida

value It would bo 'expected to give to

politicians In South Omaha who, It is
said, will bo strong for consolidation If
for no other reason than to get the pres

Omaha, as the younger set cannot hope
for any office there. Arrong this Vounger
