Ottoman 'Empire Appears to Be Doomed. Spread off the Mnsselmans' Revolutionary MoTemrnt Grave Financial Difficulties. Turkey's Side off the Story. Coxstaxtixople, Nov. 8. The rosult of the conference between the ministers and Sir Edgar Vincent, governor of the Impe rial Ottoman bank, at which means were canvassed for the betterment of the finan cial situation in Turkey, is 6een in an official announcement. Tho Ottoman bank will suspend for a month the pay ment of gold or bank notes in order to give time for the conversion into pounds Turk ish of the gold which la coming to tho bank from its branches. Meantime tho public officers accept tho bank notes in Etead of gold. The action of the government in pro longing tba concession to the Ottoman bank for 12 years has had a reassuring effect on tho public, and the run on tho bank, which threatened to upset tho finan cial situation in the wholo empire and to spread with disastrous effect beyond, has abated. It is hoped that tho worst of the panio is now over. Kiamil Pasha, tho retiring grand vizier, has been appointed vali at Aleppo. As a result of tho crisis here a new Turkish ministry has been formed. It is composed as follows: Hali Rifat Pasha, grand vizier; Said Pasha, president of the council of state; Tewflk Pasha, min ister for foreign affairs; Hassan Pasha, minister of marine; lliza Pasha, minister of war; Memduh Pasha, minister of the interior; Abdur Rahman Pasha, minister of justice; Sabri Pasha, minister of finance; Ann Pasha, minister without portfolio. Riza Pasha was minister of war in tho last cabinet, and Hassan Pasha was min ister of marine. Hall Rifat Pasha is the dx-minister of the interior, and Tewfik Pasha has como from Berlin, where ho was Turkish embassador to Germany. Said Pasha was miniter for foreign affairs in the last cabinet as previously grand vizier. Saltan Seeking; Ills Own Safety. Nov. 8. The Berlin correspond ent of The Times says of Towfik Pasha, the new Turkish minister of foreign affairs: "While hero Towfik displayed no quali t'es fitting him to be a good foreign min ister. He has won the sultan's confidence by the timely detection of palace plots, and he is likely to be a docile palaoe in strument. It looks, therefore, as if tho EUltan were thinking more of his own safety than of tho gravity of tho political situation. " Tho Times publishes a dispatch from its Constantinople correspondent, m wnicn he repeats previous statements as to the strength-of tho Monammedan'l'evolution ary movement. He espressos doubt as to the statement that leaders for the move ment are lacking, and says that tho disaf fection is strong and general in the army and navy as well as elsewhere, and has caused dismay in the palace and a feeling of impototacy on the part of tho porte. The Constantinople correspondent of The Standard sends an interview with Said Pasha, in which he says that he could not claim that the Turkish administra tion was snow white, but it was certainly not as black as it was painted. Tho min isters, he said, wero working hard to car ry out the scheme of reforms and count ed upon England's generosity not to in crease the difficulties by encouraging the revolutionary Armenians, who, instead of being grateful for the concessions that had been made, were in open revolt throughout A 6ia. A dispatch to Tho Standard from Vien na says that it is believed that tho changes in the Turkish ministry are intended to appease Mohammedan disaffection and are not a demonstration against England, although Kiamil Pasha, the outgoing grand vizier, was the most pro-English of the pashas. i The Dally News on the Situation. The Dally News' Constantinople corre spondent, whoso sympathies lean toward the Armenian side, admits that the Mos lem' attacks have aroused such a spirit of opposition and despair among the Arme nians that instead of allowing themselves to bo killed quietly, as at Trebizond and Akhisf ar, the Armenians themselves com menced the attack at Zeitoun, Erzeroum and elsewhere, besides making ill advised and mischievous demonstrations in Con stantinople. "It will take years," this correspondent continues, "to revive confi dence and trade and commerce lost through the present condition of anarchy, due to the deplorable weakness and inaotion of the government." As an instance of this the correspondent eites tho faot that Hon. A. W. Terrell, United Stjtes minister, has been trying for two mufatbs to obtain permission for United States Consul Poohe at Aleppo to see an American citizen of Armenian origin, who has been sent to prison there for life. It is pointed out that Minister Terrell has secured orders from two grand iziers to tho looal authorities at Aleppo to grant this permission, which has either been rescinded before the consul had an opportunity to act upon it or has been dis obeyed by the local governor, the desired wult being evaded rather than refused. "This is the more remarkable," Tho Daily News' correspondent observes, "be cause Mr. Terrell has considerable person al influence at the porto. Yet, now, after demanding tha dismissal of the vali at Aleppo, or that the porte itself should as sume responsibility for refusal, he has on ly succeeded in getting an order for the prisoner to be brought here." The Only Hopeful Sign. The only hopeful sign in the outlook, according to the opinion of The Daily News' correspondent, is tho report that tho troops at Erzeroum, under . Shakir Pasha, high commissioner to enforce the Armenian reforms, have attacked a Mos lem mob. which had formed with a pur pose of doing mischief to the Armenians. "If this is confirmed," the correspondent , thinks, "it will show that Turkey really desires that tho massacre shall cease." A cipher letter received from Erzing hian, headquarters of the notorious Zekki Pasha, commander of tho troops at the time of the Sassoun massacre, state3 that 2,000 Armenians have been killed during the late disturbances. A "Vienna dispatch to. The Daily News hears that unless there is an amelioration in the condition of affairs Russia will oc cupy Armenia simultaneously with the holding of the European conference. Turkey's Side off the Story. Washixgtox, Nov. 8. The Turkish le gation announces the following telegram from the sublime porte: "All news concerning plots, threaten ing letters and a supposed dissatisfaction in the ranks of tho army and navy is in tentionally propagated by well known newspaper correspondents affiliate with the Armenian committee to alarm pub lic opinion. As for the often repeated as sertion of the intended extermination of tho Armenians, it is too absuid to be con tradicted. The efforts of the imperial gov ernment tend, on tho contrary, to quell the revolt of the Armenians and to resist their criminal and bloody agitation. "Tho Armenian agitation at Diarbekir was on the point of subsiding, when the Armenians again began their attacks up on the Mussulmans by throwing bombs at them and by firing at the Muezzins at the vory time when the latter were calling the faithful to prayers. During tho affray 50 Mussulmans and 90 Armenians were kill ed and wounded. "Armenian rioters attacked the patrols at Sivrik, killing a few Mussulmans And setting fire to the bazaar. "Two hundred Armenian revolution ists, having at their head Kevrok, chief of the parish of Ferat Mar-ash), attacked tho village of Tchoukcur Hissar and kill ed 12 Mussulmans. . "Some of the agitators wero arrested, including part of the Armenian brigands, who captured Hadji Hassan Oglou Husni. "All news published as to the occur rence of trouble at Adana, Tarsus and Mersine is absolutely without founda tion." Appeal to the Powers. Paris, Nov. S. At a meeting here of delegates representing Armenian colonies in various parts of Europe it was resolved to address a supreme appeal to the six powers which signed the Berlin treaty urging intervention to stop "the method ical extermination of the Armenians which is being carried out by the Otto man government. " THE CANAL BILL. The 89,000,000 Appropriation Said to Be Carried by 100,000 Majority. Syracuse, Nov. 8. Captain W. C. Clark of Constantia, Oswego county, who is one of tho staunchest friends of tho canals in New York stato and who has been a hard worker for tho $9,000,000 ap propriation measuro, is especially jubilant over its passago by tho votes of the people, and says: "I am greatly gratified at the outcome of the 59,000,000 appropriation for tho deepening of the canals. It shows to the world and to tho railroads that the masses of the people are not ready to surrender to the corporations ,of iliis great state - the canals, which havo made hor the Empire state In the sisterhood of states. Not hav ing the complete returns at band, it is impossible for me to state what the ma jority in favor of tho bill is, but I believe that it will be more than 100,000." BIG STRIKE EXPECTED. Houaesmlths Wish to Enforce a Uniform Scale ef Wages. New York, Nov. 8. A strike of 1,600 housesmiths is threatened before long to enforce a uniform union scale of wagos and an agreement with the bosses. This strike will certainly involve over 80,000 other mechanics in the building trade, who will quit in sympathy, as tho board of walking delegates and the Central La bor union will support the housesmiths. The Iron league has refused the request of tho Housesmiths' and Bridgemen's un ion for an increase in the scale of wages and the recognition of the union. A call has been issued for a meeting to be held on Sunday in Clarendon hall to take special action in this crisis in tho building trade. The union demands $3.25 to $3.50 for eight hours' work. An Expedition to Ashanti. London Nov. S. The Chronicle is of ficially informed that the war office has arranged for an expedition to Ashanti. This leaves no further doubt of the accu racy of the report from Accra, on the gold coast of Africa, that the king of Ashanti had declined the ultimatum offered to him by Great Britain to tho effect that tho king should have a British commis sioner in his country, and that he should place Ashanti under British protection. The dispatch of the expedition indicates that Great Britain is determined to re duce the king of Ashanti to complete sub jection. Treed by Bloodhounds. Crawfordsville, Ind., Nov. 8.

Suspicion fell upon young Concell and his brother, both of whom were arrested on election night. The brother will be re leased, but the police claim that they have found bloody clothes belonging to Jerome, and that he wore shoes which fitted perfectly the tracks left by the mur derer.

The Proprietor and Bartender Cowed With Revolvers One Man Resisted and Was Shot Money Drawer Bobbed The Des peradoes Escape. New York, Nov. 8. Three masked men went into the saloon of Thomas and Dick Walters, at the corner of Southern boulevard and Brown place, at half past 11 o'clock last night, and tried to hold tip everybody in it. Dick Pope, one of the men in the saloon, started to show fight, and the masked men opened fire. Popo was shot through the breast and died al most instantly. The 6aloon is on the northeast corner of Southern boulevard and Brown place. Thomas Walters, one of the proprietors, was playing cards with Dick Manley, a contractor of 451 East One Hundred and Forty-eighth street, and Robert Kenny, a railroad watchman, employed in the yards just south of the saloon. Dick Pope was keeping the slate. The game was plnu chle. The bar runs along the east side of the saloon. A lunch counter stands on tho west side. The table at which the men were playing cards stands at the south end of the lunch counter. ' At the north end of the lunch counter is a 6lde door opening Into Brown place. W ill Gillen, the bartender, was busy at the lunch counter when tho door opened, and a man put in his head. Thomas Wal ters looked up from the card table and saw that tho man's face was partly con cealed by a handkerchief, which was tied around the middle of his head below his eyes in such shape that it covered his noso and his mouth, but not his chin. Walters could see that the man was smooth shaven. As Waltors looked up the man at the door turned and said to some ono behind him: "It's no use going in thero.M Then the man backed out of the door and closed it behind him. Walters turned to the other men at the card table and said: " That's d funny. That fellow had a handkorohief tied around his face." Just then tho side door north of tho lunch counter opened, and the man who had started in at the front door came in. Ho was followed part way through tho door by two others, masked as he was. All three carried big revolvers, whioh they leveled in front of them, and the man who was in the lead sung out: "Put up ypur hands!" All the men in the saloon were greatly frightened, and most of them complied, but Pope picked up a chair. Seeing this, Manley oried out to Pope: ' Poke that fellow with the gun !' Pope, who was nearest to the man in tha leodri took ono step toward him, with the chair raised as if to strike him. At that all three opened fire. Pope was hit at the first shot. He cried out; "I'm Phot!" Staggered and Fell Dead. Dropping the chair, he staggered to ward the little private room in the rear, where he foil. Tho two men, who were but partly in side tho saloon, turned and ran. The oth er man, who was in the lead, keeping tho other men in the saloon covered with his gun, walked deliberately across the room and up behind the bar. He pulled out the money drawer and took all tho bills and what loose change he could get, scattering 6omo of the change on the floor. Then he came out from behind the bar, badked out of the front door and ran directly south across the Southern boulevard into the railroad yards, in which he disappear ed. As soon as the men with the guns wero out of the saloon the others started for help. They gathered up four or five po licemen, and one of them got Dr. Donlon of 767 East One Hundred and Thirty fourth street and went back to the saloon. Dr. Donlon found that Pope was dead. The bullet had hit him in the right breast and had passed out of the left side. Dr. Donlon said he must have died almost Instantly. One policeman ran to the Morrisanla station and notified Captain Creeden, who, with Roundsman Postoff, Detective Titus and four men, went to the saloon as quickly as they could. They found out that Buffalo Bill's Wild West show had oome into the railroad yard last night after a bad season at At lanta, and that 40 men had been dis charged upon tho arrival, of the train. They conjecture that the murder possibly was oommitted by some of these men. Creeden and Titus took Manley and Walters and went through the show train, but Manley and Walters did not see any body they thought looked liko either oi the men who had done the shooting. The police scoured the yards, but. could find no trace of the man who had run there. The two men who went out of the side door ran up Brown place to One Hundred and Thirty-fourth street and turned east to Third avenue, where they were also lotit sight of. At 1 o'clock this morning 20 policemen wero scouring the neighbor hood after the murderers. The money taken from the saloon till amounted to about $42. The saloon ceiling and bar were shot full of bullet holes. 1 ; Hacked With a Meat Ax. New York, Nov. 8.

THE DETROIT DISASTER, More Dead ksodles Taken From the Ruins of the Collapsed Building;. Detroit, Nov. 8. The work of rescuing bodies of the victims of Wednesday's ex plosion In The Journal building goes stead ily on. The list of missing decreases about correspondingly with the number of dead bodies taken out. Over 80 dead bodies have now been recovered and identified, but the number changes frequently on ao oount of new and ghastly discoveries brought to light in the ruins. The num ber killed will approximate 40. Latest de velopments demonstrate conclusively thai negligent care of the boilers was the causa of the disaster. Official inspectors and competent engi neers have examined portions of the wrecked boilers and pronounced the causa as low water, causing a superheated con dition of the flues, which was followed by the dangerous injection of cold water. Engineer Thompson's carelessness - is strongly condemned. The engineer of Tho Free Press states that he had previously warned . Thompson against leaving his boilers without having any assistant to watch them. Somo occupants of the build ing give similar testimony. Thompson in sists that he saw both boilers ten minutes before the explosion, and that they con tained plenty of water and 63 pounds' pressure of steam. Tho portion of the building still stand ing has been officially examined and found to be out of plumb, wrenched by the shock and otherwise defective. It will doubtless be condemned.

ARCHITECT JACKSON SERVES NOTICE UPON CONTRACTOR THOMPSON. Says the Specifications nave Been Ignored and that Sand of an Inferior Quality Has Been UsedWill Not Accept the Work Done on the Cellar. There is the biggest sort of a rumpus going on just now between Architect J. A. Jackson and Contractor Patrick Thompson, relative to the building of the addition to the Bishop street school building. Yesterday, Mr Jackson says, he went up there and found that the specifications were being entirely ignored. The sand used was unfit for use and the walls were not being packed and constructed in accord ance with the contract. The workmen took no notice of what the architect said, and continued constructing the foundation walls until this morning, when Mr Jackson served a written notice on the foreman, to the effect that the objectionable work should be torn down and built as per plans and specifications, otherwise the job would not be accepted. Then the men quit work and there the matter now stands. Mr Jackson said this afternoon, that the cellar walls are about half built and that most of what has been done will have to be ripped to pieces, for he has no assurance that they would stand,as at present constructed,and he has no desire to be held responsible in the future if that whole structure should topple to the ground when it would be tilled to the doors with pupils. "Why," he said, "if any such thing should happen I could be arrested and tried on a charge of man slaughter. I do not care who finds fault or who bears the extra expense. I am going to have those walls rebuilt as originally intended; either that or I'll withdraw from the job and disclaim all responsibility for anything that may oc cur there." STOLE FIVE KEGS OF BEER.

ST THOMAS CADETS WIN. Attorney Dnrant Called Down For Inter fering in a Football Game. The hottest football match that has been played on the West End grounds in a number of j-ears took place there yesterday afternoon, between teani3 from the St Thomas cadets and H. A. C. When the St Thomas fellows reached the grounds they were surprised to find that over half the players on the II. A. C. eleven belong on the x. M. C. A. team, but it was not the time to raise a fuss and the game started and re sulted in a score of G to 0 in favor of the St Thomas cadets.
