NOW UP TO BALKAN STATES
Turkey linn Ciiiiio Fonr-Plfthn of the

llnrniony.
.J&ONDON, Jan. 2. The peuca ngotla
tfeha between the Balkan and iho Turk
Jh envoys will bo broken off, according
fOr. S. Duneff, the chief of the Bui
irlan delegation, unless the map which
e Turkish delegation Is now preparing,
lowing Uie proposed boundary between
Bulgaria and Turkey, should, prove to
bo In accordance with the terms laid down
by tho allies.
"The position of af rairs nas hot changed
inuch for the better, as people seem to
Imagine," said Dr. Duneff today. "It
must be borne In mind that from the be
ginning Turkey has always said It woulrl
make certain cessions In Macedonia and
Kplrus and In part of the provinces of
Thrace. That Is all right as far as It
goes, but there remains the quostlon of
Adrlanople.
Ailrlnnnplr Vltni Point.
"The future or Adrlanople Is one of tho
most vital points In the negotiations and
as fax as I can see no improvement of
the situation In regard to it Is to bo ex
pected when the new map Is drawn up
by the Turkish delegation of the proposed
lecttflcatlon of the boundary between Bui-
garia and Turkey.
"If we find at tomorrow's meeting of
tho conference that tho Turkish map Is
not in accordance with the terms offered
by the allies and Is unsatisfactory t6 us,
the negotiations will bo broken off.
"Tho second difficulty is In connection
with the matter of the Islands In the
-Aegean sea. There, again we will insist v
Upon our terms.
"In fact, thero Is no ground for the Im
pression that seems to exist In soma
quarters ythat we liave the: intention of
modifying our terms as regards Turkey.
Wlifitcverw we mayi do afterward wltljthe
t l$UTQrarjower'ls not "connected with
pur negotiations with Turkey.
y'.yie ure ready to acknowledge tllat
noma progress ,was made yesterday,- but
Itgls necessary to bear In mind that the
v'Montlal points before the conference
1iye not been settled. Let us hope they
will be at tomorrow's meeting."
Ttfflinil I'iihIih In Emphatic.
Rcchad Pusha, the leader of tho Turk
ish plenipotentiaries, was equally em
phatic on the subject of Adrlanople. In
tlxa course of an Interview this morning
MA Hfllfl!
VWe have ceded Macedonia In a spirit"
pf conciliation and with a desire to avoid
A renewal of the, war. On two questions,
however, we will not yield. We will not
give up cither Adrlanople or tho islands
lir the Aegeansea."
The question of the Aegean Islands :s
expected to be more easily arranged than
that of Adrlanople, It being thought that
they may eventually be divided among the
disputants.
Jn any caao the danger of a resumption
of hostilities Is regarded as eliminated
and the utterances of threats, of a renewal
of the war by various delegates may be
taken as merely the playing of cards In
the diplomatic Ronie.
Recftad Pasha and the other Turkish
delegates now declare that Turkey yester
day yielded to tho allies four-fifths of
what It originally claimed, thus going
from the maximum alts expectations to
a minimum which Is absolutely Irre
ducible. It Is now the turn of the allies, they
point out, to reduce the maximum of
their original terms to such a minimum ns
will meet the Turks In a reasonable com
promise. Should the allies refuse to do this, the
Turkish delegates say, Europe and the
whole world will be able to Judge on
which side are to be found "moderation
and real love of peace."
Turkey Alirnya Conciliatory.
Reched Pasha remarked that tho whole
modern history of the Turkish empire wrs
marked by a spirit of good will toward
the European powers. Turkey had made
at all times every concession compatible
with Its d!gnltj This led to the prae
tlcal abandonment of eastern Rumclla,
the settlement of the Armenian question
and the entrusting of the protection of
Crete to England, Prance, Russia and
Italy. Now, he continued. Turkey was
doing a thing almost without precedent
n any previous jvgr. It was ceding even
territories which had not been conquered
by the enemy, such as Jnnlna an'l
Scutari.
"Turkey, however," he concluded, "can
not and will not yield Adrlanople, which,
besides not having been taken by '.ho
besiegers, has for the Mussulman worlds

John Barrett of tho Pan-American union
today urges the people and preas of tho
fnlted States to treat with greater kind
ness and more consideration the peoples
and governments of the other republics
of the western hemisphere. Declaring that
the twenty republics lying south of the
United States offers to this country In
"greatest foreign opportunity," Mr. Bar
rett makes tho following appeal:
J'That the. press and people of tho
United States will give nil Lntln-Amer-
J leans a square deal, will assume towar.l
It an attitude of appreciation lather than
patronage, will treat Mexico, Cuba
Colombia and the other nations which
may have -troubles or disputes with tha
United States, with sympathy and con
sideration rather than with criticism and
complaint. Let, therefore, the people and
the press of the United States Inaugurate
In 1913 a nation-wide Pan-American move
ment which eventually will add greatly
to tho trado and prosperity not only nf
the United States, but of all Its sister re
publics." Mr. Barrett adds that the opening of
the Panamu canal will mark .in epoch
J for tliB republics of this hemisphere and
IIU uikib uciici uuui-i aittiiuuib Willi
them so that the Monroe doctrine nray
be accepted universally In the'westirn

of all."

BRITONS FEAR INFLUENCE
OF IRISH-AMERICANS
LONDONv Jan. 2. The alleged fear of
Irish-American Influence on the projected
Irish parliament was urged by Karl Wln
terton In the House of Commons thlB nftf
ernoon as a reason for amending the
home rule bill so as to prevent the Irish
parliament from passing resolutions on
subjects upon which It is to be forbidden
to legislate.
Earl Wlnterton and two other union
ist members, Sir Frederick Banbury and
Plr Gilbert Parker, contended that
during a time of crisis the Irish parlia
ment could adopt resolutions which would
greatly endanger Interests of Oreat
Britain and It might even send a repr.
sentatlve to Washington. They argued
the stability of tho nationalist party waj
maintained by Irish-Americans and
"those who paid the piper wre entitled
to call the tune."
Augustine Blrrell, chief secretary fo.
Ireland, und John Dillon opposed tin
