Stilislilles Ileenming I'npopnlnr Scnlpcrw Heoelvhitc the Sunie Com iiilMMlonn IleKuInr Agen. The meeting to bo held to-day in New York to consider the appeal of the roads running fast trains against requlrtncr them to charge extra fare on such trains Is looked forward to with much interest, as, if the ruling of the board of managers of the Joint Traffic Association is carried out, it means the reducing of the speed of a number of trains, If not of all trains, to such a schedule that no line will neod to charge a dlfferenti.il. The fight that the general pa?scngfr agents of the trunk lines are making against the proposed check on fast service, or in favor of the lines which cannot glvo the fast service, is evi dvnee that such trains are not only popular, but are profitable. In fact. E. O. McCor mick, passenger traffic manager of the Dig Four, says the best raying trains on the Dig Four arc those that are scheduled at a high speed, and the same remark will ap ply to the fast trains on the Vandalla and Pennsylvania lines, which year In and year out are said to be the best paying trains run over those lines between St. Iouis and New York. The same is true of tlu fast trains over the Ulg Four and the Vandcrbilt lines. The .N'evr Agreement Adopted. The general passenger agents of the "Western roads, at their meeting In Chicago, yesterday, adopted the new agreement for their reorganized association. It will be como effective April 2$. All the roads were not represented at the meeting and some of thoso represented voted subject to the ap proval of their managements. This fact, however; "will not interfere with the effec tiveness of the agreement on the date men tioned. The roads which voted for it unre- servedly will put it into operation at the appointed time, whether tho others join them or not. That was clearly stateu in to-day's proceedings. They will tako their chances on the others cominir in later. and at all events will give the agreement a trial before trying to conduct their bunj- ness without organization of some kind for the protection of Joint interests. Homo changes were made in the agreement before Its adoption. The only one of any particu lar importance was in tho article which made it incumbent on the chairman to co operate with the interstate and state com missions in enforcing all laws appertaining to the maintenance or rates, ibis article was greatly modified. As it now stands It is simply made tho duty of th chairman to use his best endeavors to have Interstate and state laws observed by the members. Another important resolution adopted was ono providing for the cessation of the pay ment or excessive commissions cf all kinds May 1. Tho meeting Is now engaged in the consideration of Christian Kndeavor and otheT special rates, but final action on them was not taken by the meeting yesterday. It. 1st prorosed to make one-way rates of 52o in each direction for the Christian Kndeavor convention in San Francisco next July. Twenty-three lines signed the agreement. not including the Southern Pacific, Chicago Great Western and Wisconsin Central com panies. The meeting unanimously elected B. D. Caldwell chairman of the new or ganization. The following executive com- mitteewas appointed: W. F. White. Atch ison. Topeka & Santa Fe; James Charlton, Chicago & Altorv; George II. HeafTord, Chi cago, Milwaukee & St. Paul: W. R Kin skem. Chicago & Northwestern; John Se bastian. Chicago. Rock Island & Pacific; P. S. Eustls. Chicago. Burlington & Quin cy; C. S. Crane, Wabash. Subftldlen I'npopnlar. Wabash Plain Dealer. The farmers in this part of Indiana are down on all subsidy schemes and it is a question whether a $10,0u0 donation could be secured by the vote of agriculturists for the construction of a trunk lino from ocean to ocean, crossing Wabash county and the lo cation of the principal shop and roundhouse In this city. The farmers have had a hard time of it for several years. The dollars have not been coming their way and have been mighty hard to get. They generally earn them by toiling from daylight to dark, and though the indirect benefits from the building of railway lines may be numerous and important, they do not weigh these In direct advantages against the necessity of going down into their pockets and meeting special tax levies. Tuesday over in Sims township. Grant county, a special election was held to decide whether the township should appropriate $10,000 1 per cent, on the total valuationIn aid of the C. I. & E. extension to Converse. All told 521 votes wer cast, there being a tie in the east precinct and a majority of twenty-five against In the West precinct. It was the intention of the projectors of the lino to build west from Fairmount. through Sway zee to. Converse, but this knocks the scheme in the head, and the terminus will remain indefinitely at Fairmount. ' Earning; of Indiana Linen.

Mr. Cliesborouif h AVI 11 Iletire. John Chesborough, general passenger agent of the Baltimore & Ohio Southwest ern, was In the city yesterday, and when questioned as to his retiring from the serv ice of that road said that he expected to leave the road, but no date for his retir ing had been fixed. He said that under present methods of handling the traffic of the' road lt was not pleasant for him to remain with it longer than his successor could be decided upon, and he would shake hands heartily with his successor and wish him the greatest success. Mr. Chesborough said ho did not know who he was to be, but the tenor of his conversation wa- to the effect that negotiations were still pend ing between V. V. Pea hod v. vice president and general manager, and "Mr. Busenbark, and he stated that they had been in con ference twice In the last ten days, the last time the day tefore Mr. Pea body left for the East. Protect It Shipper. For years past lt has been the practice of the freight officials on the Pennsylvania lines to protect its shippers against any unfair competition or discrimination In rates, anil tills has worked to the advan tage of the road. Just now lt Is giving special attention to the business of local snippers, offering the most reasonable rates and the best time that their relations with other roads will admit without making a breach. l'erxonti!, Local und etiernl Ante. After May 1 the headquarters of the Lima Northern will be in Detroit. It is reported that the commissions paid on Western lines are fast running away with the revenue. J. T. Harahan, vice president and general manager of the Illinois Central. Is In New York, and will sail in a day or two for Europe. J. B. Cable, superintendent of the Mil waukee and Chicago division of the Chi cago. Milwaukee & St. Paul, has tendered his resignation. The directors of the Cincinnati.

Cnder the proposed new time Meheu!e the Nlcktl-p'.ate, the West fchore and the Fltch burg roads will shorten their time two hours between Chicago and l;otm. Conductors on several ieads have re ceived Instructions, very emphatic in char acter, to collect fares of all children over twelve years of age, and hulf fare between i live and twelve years. The fact that the railroad company Is Just as liable from ac cident to a child as a grown person, under h recent derision of a court in an Eastern State, has led to the stricter enforcement of rules. The Lake Shore has given notice that on July 1 it will withdraw from the Weighing and Inspection Bureau at Toledo, the com-I-my objecting to the recent ruling of the association. George Haye. of the transportation de partment of the Brie lines, with headquar ters at Huntington. Ind.. who has been alMicted with paralysis, is to be taken to Hot'Springs. Ark., for treatment.

General Superintendent Gibson, of the Baltimore & Ohio, in company with division superintendents. Is going over the lines ar ranging for the tonnage basis of rating lo comotives which goes into effect May 1. Itumor says that the Chicago. Rock Island & Pacific people have decided to ex tend the road to Galveston. Its southern terminus Is Fort Worth, and the Missouri. Kansas & Texas is used to reach the gulf. Captain W. W. Peabody, vice president of the Baltimore & Ohio Southwestern, is in the East, and to a reporter he said that the report that he was to be one of the Interstate-commerce Commission was not true. Sensational developments are Intimated in Wheeling & Lake Erie matters. It is stated that an action Is to be begun against tho syndicate which built the extension to Bowerstown, Martin's Ferry and Steuben-ville. Three of the passenger engines in service on the Teoria & Eastern were, built at the company's shops at Urbana, are locomo tives which would do credit to any locomo tive works, and they make excellent speed records. The section men on the main line of tho Lako Erie & Western, who have been re ceiving $1.10 per day. now demand an in crease of fifteen cents, and It is stated that a number have gone out until the request is granted. William Renzlehausen, who has been ap pointed assistant master mechanic of the Santa Fe. will, after May 1. have his head quarters at Fort Madison. He will have charge of tho first and second divisions and their branches. Tho offico of assistant general manager of the Qulncy. Omaha & Kansas City road has been abolished, and C. II. Spencer as signed to the duties. C. If. Soule returns to the road as superintendent, with head quarters at Cjuincy. The Wabash management is giving more attention to encouraging Industries on its line, laying side tracks to manufacturers and other industries where there is any prospect of getting business, which will jus tify such an expenditure. W. II. Gowenlock. who has represented the Reading Dispatch and the Lehigh Val ley Transportation Company at Kansas City, has been promoted to general agent of tho above named companies, with head eiuarters at Deu Moines, la. Orders were issued yesterday by the board of managers of the Joint Traffic Association whereby the east-bound lake and rail schedule of rates adopted for the present season of navigation will be extended so as to cover all east Mississippi river points. D. G. Edwards, passenger traffic manager of the Cincinnati, Hamilton & Dayton, Is expected home from the East to-day. and George H. Smith, assistant general passen ger agent, who has been on an extended Southern trip, will also return to-day or to-morrow. W. J. Talmage. agent of the American Express Company at the Union Station of fice, goes to Terre Haute to succeed Agent Benjamin, who has received the appoint ment of postmaster at Terre Haute. Mr. Talmage will be succeeded here by William H. Kurth, his chief clerk. T. C Wells, traveling passenger agent of the Chesapeake & Ohio, was in the city yesterday. He states that travel over the line, both east and west-bound, is the heav iest for ordinary times since the road was opened. The observation cars were yester day placed on the day trains. Though the most , stringent orders have been issued for the maintenance of rates by Eastern roads it is charged that some of the big shippers have contracts which do not expire until May 1, and this accounts for the fact that no reduced rates are quoted on the Chicago Board of Trade, In the next schedule published by the Union Railway Company the through trains between Cincinnati and Chicago via Itoachdale, over the Cape Horn route, will be scheduled as Trains 15 and 16 in connec tion with the Monon time schedule. They have never yet been on the Union Railway tlmo schetlule. George Randolph, general traffic mana, ger, and I. G. Rawn, general superintend ent of the Baltimore Sz Ohio Southwestern, were in Baltimore on Wednesday for a con ference with General Manager Greene and D. B. Martin, passenger traffic manager of the Baltimore & Ohio, concerning the sum mer time schedule. There is the best of authority for stating that there is no truth in the report of a Terre Haute paper that H. I. Miller, super intendent of the Vandaha main line, irf to retire. No other official changes are in contemplation on those lines by the re ceiver. Mr. Miller is having some trouble with his eyes, but nothing of a serious character. Fast freight service over Indianapolis lines Is proving of great benefit to business men. especially commission merchants. Goods shipped from Louisville or Cincin nati at night are ready for delivery on the Belt tracks at 4 or 5 o'clock next morning, and about as good time is made from Chi cago to Indianapolis, or St. Louis to In dianapolis. There is considerable commotion among Western passenger men over the announce ment that the Union Pacific and tho Mis souri Pacific are paying ticket scalpers at Denver the samo commissions now being paid to regular ticket agents. A local tick et scalper says he does not see why there should be any trouble over this, as these are not the only roads which pay the same commissions to scalpers as are paid to reg ular ticket agents. Arrangements have been completed by the Canadian government for the construction of the Crow's Nest pass road into the gold rields of the Kootcnia region. The Ca nadian Pacific road has undertaken to build the new road. For doing it it is to receive from the government a subsidy of $10,000 a mile or about $3.25O.Oi0 in all. In return for this subsidy the Canadian Pacific is not only to build the new road, but allow other roads to run their trains over it. It is also to relinquish some of the special privileges secured to It by its original charter. CITY NEWS NOTES.

Ln.iv In Purely Local, but Vnlld Van dalln Suit Filed hy the At torney (leuernl. The Supreme Court yesterday handed down the decision in the Jackson county seat case, sustaining the law of 1813, which provided for a special election to determine tho question of removing the county seat from Brow nstown to Seymour. The county commissioners declined to act upon the law and suit was brought and taken on venue to Scott county. The Circuit Court of Scott commanded them to call an election and tho commissioners appealed to the Supreme Court. In the decision yesterday .the judg ment of the lower court was affirmed. Tho act was surrounded with various lim itations that confined its operation to Jack son county and Its constitutionality was at tacked upon the same grounds as those brought against tho 3-cent-fare law, name ly, that it was local and special legislation coming within the inhibition of the twenty-third section of Article 4 of the Consti tution. The Brownstown attorneys declared that this sort of legislation was specifical ly forbidden, as it sought to regulate coun ty and township business and had to do with the administration of justice. The Su preme Court holds that none of these ob jections is valid notwithstanding the fact that "an examination of the act In eiue-s-tlon fully discloses its special and local character, and evidently lt was enacted for the sole purpose of bringing Jackson coun ty and no other county within its pro Visions." But this doee not Invalidate it because "the subject of the statute is the relocation of county seats and it is one over which, in the absence of constitution al inhibition. . the Legislature has plena ry power and control. VAX DA LI A SUIT. Petition of the State Filed by the At torney General. In the Superior Court yesterday was filed tho suit of the State of Indiana against the Terre Haute & Indianapolis Hallway Com pany to recover money alleged to be due the school fund. This is the expected suit against the Vandalla promised by Attorney General Ketcham several clays ago. The complaint is a voluminous typewritten doc ument, occupying about seventy pages of manuscript. The company is charged with withholding large sums of money in excess of what was reasonably necessary as a contingent fund, in violation of the charter; with expending large sums for the purpose of influencing the action of the General Assemblies of 1S63, 1SCD and 1ST1. when measures look ing to the investigation of the company were under consideration. It is charged that in 1SS7, when a committee from the Senate and House went to Terre Haute to investigate the affairs of the company, its officers and agents met the committee and treated the legislators so royally that they were very soon in a condition unfit to make the investigation. The court is asked to have an accounting taken under his direc tion, and that a decree be entered in fayor of the State for the amount which may bo found to be lawfully due. Fleming;' Unique OfTenae. . "Sorrllda R, Fleming vs. Wm. A. Flem ing" is the title of a suit for divorce filed in the Superior Court yesterday afternoon. The complaint Is of rather a unique charac ter. a.s it avers that the defendant is now serving out a Sentence in the workhouse for being drunk -with "two female collard women." Fleming is accused of driving his wife and children from home, they be ing compelled to seek the shelter of corn fields to escape his abuse. The plaintiff wants her husband restrained from visiting her after his release from the workhouse. Asking Heavy DnmnKen. The damage suit of Edward 1 Sheeley against the National . Malleable Casting Company, of Haughvllle, Is on trial In the Superior Court. The plaintiff wants $10,000 for injuries received while employed at the company's workH.

WANTS TO SKU THE AVAH. General Mile Awkn Perrulnsion to Go to Cireeee. WASHINGTON, April 22. General Miles has applied for permission to go to Greece to observe the war between that country and Turkey from a military point of view. Secretary Alger has brought the matter to the attention of the President, and the lat ter has taken the application into consid eration. The impression is that owing to the rapid prosTetss of the war and the likelihood that It will be brought to an end before General Miles could reach the scene the project will be abandoned. Should the order bo made by the President, how ever, it will be the first time in our his tory that the general commanding" tho army has gone abroad during actual war as a military attache. It Is true that Gen. Sherman made a tour of the world In time of peace in company with Fred Grant, and that Sheridan accompanied the German army as an attache in the war with Frame, but in the first case there was no war in progress, and in the second the officer was not at the time of such high rank as is General Miles. The War Department to-day cabled to Captain Scrlven, United States military at tache at Rome, permission to proceed to Athens and report to the United States minister there with a view to gathering technical information in the war between Greece and Turkey. Captain Dorst, the United States military attache at Vienna, has also been granted permission to go to Constantinople and accompany the Turkish troops in the campaign in a similar capac ity, if ho cares to do so. VIEWS OF JAMES II. AX G ELL. The Xeir Emlinmindor to Turkey Thinkn Creek Will lie Annihilated. CHATTANOOGA, Tenn.. April 22.-Hon. James B. Angell, president of the Univer sity of Michigan, and President McKInley's appointee as minister to Turkey, spent yes terday and last night here, en route to Ann Arbor, Mich., where he goes to confer with the trustees of the university In regard to his acceptance of the position tendered him. Before his departure this morning Mr. An gell. in response to queries, talked freely on the Graeco-Turklsh situation. He stated emphatically that he had no doubt of Tur key ultimately winning and declared that if no outside interference occurred Greece would be annihilated. He expressed the highest confidence In the fighting qualities of the Turks and said that Greece, in stak ing all on one decisive blow, had risked her existence. When asked why the powers did not attempt to pacify Turkey as well as Greece, he expresseel the opinion that they were afraid of Russia, He said that It was Russia's policy in encouraging Tur key to bring on a general embroilment in which Turkey would be annihilated and eventually come into the Czar's possession. He thinks it probable that all Europe will be engaged In a general war. Mr. Angell refused to state positively whether or not he would accept the appointment tendered him, but intimated that he would do so. PATRIOTIC GREEKS. llundredn Are Returning Home to Figrlit for Their Country. CHICAGO. April 22. Two hundred Greek volunteers for King George's army left Chicago for Athens this evening, and as many more will follow, their comrades on Monday. All day recruiting was going on in the Greek Church on Kinsle street. Greensbacks and gold and silver were piled high In front of the altar. The aggegate of the collections amounted to about $6,000. Archbishop Feehan gave $23. Excitement was at fever heat In the crowded church with many affecting scenes and episodes. Emotional women struggled with pushing, crowding members of the stronger sex in a patriotic rivalry to have their contributions received. The work will be kept up until enough money is raised to defray the trans portation charges of every Chicago Greek who wants to battle for his native land. "If this recruiting keeps on much longer at the present rate," said Father Phlambo, "I may as well pack up my traps and go to the front with the rest for my congrega tion and my occupation will both be gone." Five hundred men, it is. said, will be on their way to join King George's army next week. The Minneapolis contingent of Greeks passed through the city last even ing, as did also the recruits from Texas and the Southwest. The Chicago recruits who left this evening will sail from New York by a French liner on Saturday morn ing. 4 TURKISH IIASE OF SUPPLIES. Salonlcn, Itn Surrounding;, Its Ue fentieM mid Ita Population. Salonlca Is a fortified seaport within thirty hours easy steaming of Constantinople, lt is clo-e to the active base of operations of tho Turkish army. It Is the principal point from which supplies are now being pushed forward to the front. A country of great fertility and traversed by rail roads and good highways lies In Its rear. Supplies of all kinds are plentiful and cheap. Tho place is capable of strong de fense. Its strategic importance lies in th fact that it Is the main keep at pre-sent of the Turkish army. The war stores not immediately needed at tho front are now being stored in reserve at Salonlca. The attack on Salonlca means diversion of a large force which might otherwise be occupied on the frontier. The water approach to the city admits of the heaviest vessels of the Greek fleet being employed. A stronger force can be brought into play hero than at Prevesa. The Turkish bat teries before Salonlca are positioned at Point Kara, Tonzla Point. MIkra Point, tho Bar Spit and along the ea wall to the left of the city. At the southern por tion of tho town is a strong basticned work having full command of the bay. To the westward of the city the country is low and ungating. A line of Held in trenchments viU guard &ga!n?t a land attack from that quarter. To the routh ward of the city and embracing Kara Point the country is either hilly or moun tainous. There is practically no intermediate anchorage for a lleet entering Salonlca gulr short tf the bay before the city. The entrance to the- bay Is through an open ing of about three mlle-s in width. This passage la covered by the batteries at Kara Point, but not to a sufficient extent to preclude the passage of a fleet. Once in side the bay. the attacking squadrons may employ circle steaming and shtll each bat tery i-s it comes on bearing, or take posi tions and hold them until the works are sib-nced. Tho city has a population of about luO.ooo, which is made up ol Jews, Turks and Greeks. Since the war broke out this num ber has bfen t;i.ttly reduced. The place is capable of stubborn defense against the at tacks of landing parties. The buildings aie for the mo.-t part of stone, and l-causu of the hilly nature of the ground on which thu place stand?, these dwellings are capa ble f being turned Into nn Innumerable numler of strong teeps. The defense of Zaragossa anl of Zaatche show what may I t done In ke-eping out attacking force from a town. Salonlca hs the general shape of a triangle. It is surrounded by high walls In the upper part of the town is the citacTel, which has full command of fhe piinelpal streets. Tho country outside the walls is covered by cypress and evergreens and shrubs. In the event of the batteries lefore Sa lonlca leing silenced it is not unlikely that the Turks will have recourse, to forti fied lntretu-hments in the rear of the town, out of the line of thlp tire, yet sufficiently close to repl landing attacks. So long as tho railroad between FaloiuVa and Constantinople is kept open the Turks will havu full ability to replenish sup plies. The Uruk move on Salonlca may in more to create a diversion from tho Elder Wm. Tennison OF CUFKIN.

Elkhart, lnL front than to seriously contemplate the landing of an army at Salonlca. In view of the Immense superiority; of the Turk, the landing of a large force would be at tended by great risk. The batteries lefore ; tho place may be silenced, but the occu pancy cf the city itelf is another matter. Tho Turka gave eldence at I'levona of their ability to hold intrenchments.

I the mo.t impor tant Greek stronghold outside of Athens. If it should Ik? taken by the Turks, their path to Athens la practically clear. I'nder King George, Larissa has been the head quarters of one of the three division? of the Greek army, Athens and Mfrrolongh! being the headquarters of the other divi sions. From its geographical position La rissa has' been rendered the post of vital Importance in the Turkish hostilities. Greek troops have been massed, there la large numbers, and the ramparts of the city have been strengthened. At this place a. desperate stand Is being made ty the Greeks to bar the advance upon Athens.: In the town of Iarissa the Greek popula tion is in the minority, the division being as follows: Moslems. 13.U00; Greeks, K.oflO; Jews, 3.000. However, in the whole district of La rissa the Greeks number Co.000 and the Turks 21.000. In the Greek war for Inde pendence Larissa was the center of Turk ish operations. It is fortified with an earth rampart. The streets . of the town are crooked and poorly paved. The ioorer classes live In mud houses. In the well-fo-do sections of the city the homes are lux urious. The city boasts of twenty-hlx mosques, eight churches and four syna gogues. Tho Greek cathedral stands upon the site of the old Acropolis, and near by I the palace of the Greek archbishop. Laris sa is the capital of Thessaly, and therefore has a number of government buildings and many high government officials, besides being the headquarters of one of the three divisions of the Greek army. It has eleven newspapers, and is one of the principal sta tions on the Thessaly railway. The city Is located in the rich plains of the lower val ley of Thessaly on the banks or the Salem bria river. It Is twenty miles distant from the Gulf of Salonlca, which washes In from the Aegean sea. on the northeast coast of Greece. It ha been noted for its industry and commerce since ancient times. As aii agricultural, industrial and trade center it easily stands at the head of the cities of Thessaly. Wheat, barley. Indian corn and tobacco are raised in large quantities in the fertile fields of the valley, and Larissa U the central port for the grain trade of the Thessalian plains. The city was noted for its great industries and trade in ancient times, and retained that distinction through the middle ages. Under the Byzantine em perors it fell away and retrograded c till more under Turkish rule, but it has Im proved of late years. The streets swarm with Moslems. Greeks and negroes. The negroes are the descendants of liberated slaves. The fashionable quarter of the town is In the west end. A bridge has been constructed over the? river. lt has nine handsome spans, is 300 feet long, and is faced with squared stones. The piers and arches of the structure are especially not able, lt Is one of the finest works of its kind In Greece. From the bridge can be seen a picturesque mosque on a hillock, near by several government buildings und the peak of Ossa beyond. Although the plains about Larissa are treeless, there are trees along the river which relievo the town of a barren look. Presidency a Mere I'pUode. Fhlladelpnla North American.
