CARRY GROWING COMMERCE.
Argnmnit In the Gallnp Tnv Case
President Roosevelt to Vote nt
O.aIit Ray Next Week.
Special to th Indianapolis Journal.
WASHINGTON. Oct. SI. President Roose
velt is now going at the shipping subsidy
problem with the same vigor that he
tackles every question that comes before
him. To start with, he is in favor of the
general principles of subsidy for the ex
pansion of the American merchant marine,
but he is as yet somewhat in the dark re
garding the sort of bill that ho can indorse.
The President to-day had conferences with
Senator Cullom. of Illinois, Representative
Jone?, of Washington, and Henry W. Pea
body, of Boston, -ut the subsidy bill. Mr.
I'eabody was one of the men who fought
the Hanna-Frye bill during the last session
of Congress, although he is in favor of
subsidies. Representative Jones is getting
up a bill Jointly with Representative Stev
ens, of Minnesota, and Representative
Miner, of Wisconsin. Mr. Jones says his
bill will provide for subsidy on cargoes ac
tually carried and also a subsidy for fast
mail steamers. The cargo provision will, he
thlnk3, lead to the building of very large
cargo steamers, of moderate speed, and he
believes that most of these steamers would
be built for the commerce of the Pacific,
where the opportunities for trade expansion
are very great. Mr. Pea body himself ap
pears to favor some such bill.
From all that the recent callers on the
President can learn, Mr. Roosevelt Is of the
same mind. He Is naturally a Western man,
although coming from New York, and ha
believes that the thing that most needs de
velopment is the commerce of the Pacific,
which would afford new markets for the
unlimited producing capacity of the middle
West, the Northwest and the Pacific coast.
The thought appears to be running through
the mind of the President that the com
merce of the Atlantic is already pretty well
cared for, and he Is known to have re
marked that there are no cargoes piled up
on the wharves of the Atlantic ports await
ing ships, whereas every port on the Pa
cific has been for months fairly congested
with freight awaiting steamers to carry it
to the far East.
The President, however, will make no par
ticular recommendations in his message re
garding subsidies. He will handle the gen
eral subject in .1 friendly way, and will
afterward consult freely with members of
Congress about the sort of bill that he
thinks ought to bo passed.
WILL VOTi: ON T l" KS II AY.
President and Secretary Cortelyou
Are Going; to New York State.
WASHINGTON. Oct. SI. President
Roosevelt and Secretary Cortelyou will
leave for New York early next Monday
morning to vote on Tuesday. The Presi
dent and Mr. Cortelyou are both from the
same county in New York, and their voting
precincts are only seven or eight miles
apirt. President Roosevelt will vote at
Oyster Ray. Long island, and Secretary
Cortelyou at Hempsted. Long island. Roth
will vote early and return to Washington
Tuesday afternoon, arriving here Tuesday
evening. Mrs. Roosevelt will accompany
the President. She has some matters at
Oyster Pay which she desires to arrange
during the visit. Assistant Secretary Loeb
and Henry Pinckney, the President's col
ored steward, will go with the party. Mr.
Loeb and the steward are residents of
Ojter Ray and will vote there.
To Representative Jones, of Washington,
who filled on the President to-day to pay
his respects, Mr. Roosevelt expressed his
great interest in the Northwest and said
lie expected to make a tour of that part
of the United States next summer.
Ex-Governor Jones, who recently was ap
pointed United States district judge for the
Middle district of Alabama, accompanied
Ly Iiis son and daughter, and Judge James
Royd. of the Western district of North
Carolina, called on the President to-day.
It was the first time the President had met
bis appointee, and they had a personal
chat for half an hour. Wayne MacYeagh
was present during a portion of the in
terview. The President, it is understood.
tMd not ask Judge Jones's advice concern
ing Southern politics.
Archbishops Ireland, of St. Paul, and
Riordan. of San Francisco, paid tluir re
spects to the President at the White House
President Roosevelt has been invited to
attend the South Carolina Interstate and
West Indian Exposition, to be held in
Charleston beginning lec. 2. The President
said to-day he would attend if public busi
ness would permit. The President promised

CONSTANTINOPLE. Oct. Sl.-The Turk
ish government is already preparing to re

States for repayment of the ransom neces
sary to secure the release of Miss Ellen
Stone, the abducted American missionary.
The Porte repudiates all responsibility for
the kidnaping of Mis Stone, and maintains
that the United States has no claim against
Turkey, and that, therefore, the latter is
Justified in refusing to recoup the United
States for the money expended in her
rescue. A high Turkish oflicial this morn

of the dangers of the road, persisted in

NEW YORK. Oct. SI. Americans are pre

from Miss Stone, and the brigands through

that Miss Stone will be able to be present

After that she will doubtless o to the

hoped that Miss Stone will be able to reach

PARIS. Nov. L Late last night the fol
lowing dispatch was received from Toulon:
"The complete Mediterranean squadron re
turned to Toulon Thursday evening and
anchored in the roadstead." This would
include Admiral Caillard's division, whose
departure has thus either been counter
manded or postponed. If the dispatch be
correct it would Imply that the government
has received news from Constantinople
since morning which has not yet been
divulged and which has Induced a change

Caillurd had been ordered to cruise within

nificant that the torpedo-boat destroyer
Halleb'irdo left Toulon at full speed dur

A dispatch from Toulon to the Figaro

entire squadron and adds that Admiral

to sail at a moment's notice. Editorially

PARIS, Oct. 31. The officials of the
French Foreign Office confirm the report
that a division of the French Mediterranean
fleet, composed of three battleships and
two cruisers, under command of Admiral
Caillard. has proceeded from Toulon to the
Levant, to make a naval demonstration
A Foreign Olflce official, in communicating
the foregoing to the Associated Press, said:
"The squadron sailed with sealed orders
and proceeds first to a Greek port, the
Island of Syra, I think, where the admiral
will receive definite instructions as to car
rying out Ids sealed orders. I am not at
liberty to say what the sealed orders are,
but the seizure of the customs at Smyrna
would probably be a very effective way of
convincing the Sultan that France's pa
tience is exhausted, and that we have de
cided to enforce an immediate execution of
the Turkish government's engagements.
We, however, are very hopeful that the Sul
tan will not compel us to go to that ex
treme. "Our squadron will not reach the Greek
port before Sunday. The Turkish govern
ment has thus still three days grace, and
we trust. In the meantime, to receive com
plete satisfaction. We have acted very
considerately toward Turkey, expecting, up
to the last moment, that she would cany
out her engagements, and it is only now,
when we find that there Is no serious indi
cation of her doing so. that we have re
luctantly resolved to put stronger pressure
to bear, in the shape of a naval demonstra
tion. It is now two months since th French
ambassador. M. Constans. left Constanti
nople. Hi? departure failed to produce the
desired efiect. On the contrary, even the
quays and tuhini questions, which were
:-Fttlod by the Sultan's irades. remain un
adjusted. The internal situation in the
Turkish empire deterred us. tor some time,
from taking drastic measures to enforce
our demands. Rut the dignity of France
could not permit the present state of affairs
to be prolonged indefinitely. We sincerely
hope the Sultan will fully appreciate the
fact that we cannot any longer be trifled
with, and relieve u of taking further steps
to safeguard, our interests."
The otticial was risked what would happen
in the event of the French squadron being
ordered to seize the customs, and if the
Turkish authorities resisted, and he replied:
"That is a very unlikely contingency, but if
it occurs I suppose we shall have to bom
bard the port. We don't want bloodshed,
and I do not believe there will be any oc
casion for it."
The decision to make a naval demonstra
tion against Turkey wps taken at a meet

A Precedent for France Action.
WASHINGTON. Oct. SI. M. Mnrgerie,
the charge d'affaires of the French em
bassy here, had a short interview with Sec
retary Hay this afternoon, after which the
secretary left at once for the White Hou.-
M. Margerie may be considered an expert
in matter? pertaining to the Levant, having
spent several years at Constantinople re
cently as an ."ttnche of the French em
bassy. He feel confident there is not the
slightest danger of a dissolution of the
concordat owing to the action of the French
government in sending warships to make a
naval demonstration in Turkish waters ami
to secure a customs port. The other na
tions parties to the concordat understand
the situation perftetly. and in fact mo?t of
them, have grievances and claims thm
selvfs Ilk"0 the Frmch complaints, so tluy
may look with complacency upon the etT.ir't
to make the Porte meet its obligations.
There also i precedent for this action, for
a fw years apt Austria seiz d a Turkish
port in the Gulf of Alexandria and held it
until her claims were paid, yet the inc ident
did riot raus protest by the oth-r powers
or even attract much attention. It con
fidently expected th.'t it will not be neces
sary for the I'rfnch admiral to proceed to
any great length before the Turks will
meet his demands.

All Vessels from Liverpool, Where
the Iluhonic I'est Has a Foothold,
Will He Inspected.
WASHINGTON. Oct. 31. The United
States consul at Liverpool has reported to
the State Department that two cases of
bubonic plague and a few other Fiispicious
cases have developed in a hospital in Liver
pool. The facts were communicated to the
Marine Hospital Service. Surgeon General
Wyman has cabled Passed Assistant Sur
geon Thomas, who did similar work in the
outbreak at Glasgow some months ago, to
proceed to Liverpool immediately and in
vestigate the outbreak and keep this gov
ernment informed. This is the first out
break of plague at Liverpool in the recol
lection of the authorities here. No conse
quent danger to United States ports is
apprehended, although there will be a
much more rigorous inspection of incoming
vessels and passengers from Liverpool by
the health authorities than heretofore. The
official report received here does not indi
cate whether the cases are of a virulent or
mild type. Advices from Italy and France
show that precautions have been taken at
the ports of those countries.
NEW YORK, Oct. 31. A. H. Doty, health
oflker of the port of New York, is not
alarmed over the fact that Liverpool, with
which New York has much commercial in
tercourse, has been declared to be a plague
infested port by the Italian and French
governments. He said to-day that New
York's health is in no way threatened. He
explained that Liverpool has only two au
thenticated cases of the bubonic plague,
nnd these were conveyed there from an
other port, being taken at once on their
arrival to the special hospital, so that the
general public is in no sense involved.
Suspected t'fises at GlasKnw.
GLASGOW, Oct. 31. The bubonic plague
has reappeared here during the week. Four
suspected cases were removed from the
Central Station Hotel, belonging to tbe
Caledonian Railway, and one died to-day.
The hotel has been closed and all guests
have been warned to Iea,r;? by noon to
morrow. All the eases under suspicion ar
servants of the hotel. An examination of
the bacteria proves conclusively that the
disease is the bubonic plague. The munici
pal authorities in a notice announcing the
fact urge all householders to destroy rats.
Precautions nt Liverpool.
LIVERPOOL, Oct. 31. It is officially an
nounced that there have been no further
deaths from the bubonic plague and no
fresh cases reported. The precautionary
measures, however, are continued. Thus
far the outbreak seems to have had no re
strictive effect on shipping, and the situa
tion is regarded favorably.

Animal Report of Ellis II. Roberts
Shovtinic the Government's Finan
WASHINGTON, Oct. Cl.-Rcscrving tht
right to discontinue without previous
notice, the Treasury Department to-day an
nounced that for the present it will accept
offerings of United Slates bonds if tendered
at the Treasury Department in Washing
ton or at the subtreasury. New York, at
prices to yield the government Interest r
follows: On the Z rer cenL bonds, loan of
19'S-ISl?. 5 per cent, bonds, loan of 1304. and
4 per cent, bonds, funded loan of 1007, to
yield 1.726, and on the 4 per ccnL bond,
loan of 1923, to yield l.Po.
In speaking of his action In resuming the
purchase of bonds Secretary Gage to-day
said: "The terms I offer are practically
the same as those under which the pur
chases were made under the last call. I
took the market quotations and made th
price about the mean between the offers
and bids, which, of cours. Is a shade alove
the prices at which the actual transactions
were made. This, I believe, to b entirely
fair to both the government and the bond
owner. My reason for making the offer at
this time is that I find from to-day's treas
ury statement that we took in in cash this
month yj.Sol.PäS more than we paid out, and
for this single day the excess -of receipts
over expenditures was $1,01,414. The cir
culation of the country could not stand this
drain very long without being affected se
riously, and as I don't wish to incv-1
deposits in the national bank depositories,
there was only one thing left to do, and
that was to buy bonds. I can give no ap
proximate Idea of how long this offer will
remain open or how many bonds I shall
purchase. Dondholders who wish to sell
would do well not to count on any great
length of time."
The monthly statement of the government
receipts and expenditures to be issued to

October, i:il, the total receipts were

Annual Report ot E. II. Roberts Ex
change of Hond Gold Supply.
WASHINGTON. Oct. 21. Ellis II. Rob
erts, treasurer of the United States, in his
report of the transactions of his office
during the last fiscal year, says that the
treasury was never stronger than at the
close of that period. The operations, which
were of the first order, both in variety and
magnitude, resulted in notworthy changes
In the paper currency, as well as a steady
and healthful growth of gold in the treas
ury and in the general stock.
The net ordinary revenues for the year
wero $7,GsG,337, an Increase of $20,411.1
over those of 1C0. which were the next
highest recorded. The- increase came from
each of the heads of resource, but chiefly
from internal revenue. On th side of th
expenditure, the total of $X.9C7.1" has
been exceeded only four times In lCI. W4.
