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.

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.

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

Protect It Shipper.
For years past lt has been the practice of
the freight officials on the Pennsylvania

unfair competition or discrimination In

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.

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

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

be scheduled as Trains 15 and 16 in connec

ceiver. Mr. Miller is having some trouble

character.

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.

THE LAW HOLDS GOOD
SUPREME COURT'S DECISION IX THE
JACKSON COUNT Y-SEAT CASE.
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.

General Mile Awkn Perrulnsion to Go

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.

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

and the Southwest. The Chicago recruits
who left this evening will sail from New

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

If it should Ik? taken by the Turks, their

Importance in the Turkish hostilities.
Greek troops have been massed, there la

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

follows: Moslems. 13.U00; Greeks, K.oflO; Jews,
3.000. However, in the whole district of La

Turks 21.000. In the Greek war for Inde

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

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.
