INTENDED TOR PACIFIC COAST tviinnn ships aim: needed to 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.

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 to-day.

WILL NOT REPAY RANSOM TIRKKY ANTICIPATES A DEM AM) FROM THE r.MTED STATES. IIlKh Otlieial Sayn the Porte 1 Xot Renponlble for the Abduction of Ml Stone. CONSTANTINOPLE. Oct. Sl.-The Turk ish government is already preparing to re sist the anticipated demand of the United 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 ing informed a representative of the Asso ciated ITess th-it the Turkish resistance of any claims would be based upon the conten tions: First That Miss Stone, although warned of the dangers of the road, persisted in traveling. Second That she did not notify the au thorities of her intention, in order to ob tain an escort, which precaution even the foreign consuls take when traveling in i-uh outlying. Insecure districts of the empire. Third That the brigands who kidnaped Miss Stone and her companion were Rul garians, that the coup was planned in Hul garia and that sanctuary was found In Bul garian territory. It is again rumored that M triam Tsilka. the companion of Miss Stone, and her child thorn since her capture by the brig ands) are dead. Iteeeiition lroed. NEW YORK. Oct. SI. Americans are pre paring a reception for Mis Stone on her re lease, says a Sotia correspondent of the Journal and Advertiser. The Russian min ister, M. Rakhmeteff. expects a letter soon from Miss Stone, and the brigands through the envoy sent last Friday. It is believed that Miss Stone will be able to be present at Phllippopolis on Nov. :. at the dedica tion of the new American hureh there. After that she will doubtless o to the United States to see h r relativ es. It is hoped that Miss Stone will be able to reach America by Thanksgiving day in case s'ae is release by the brigands. Death Humor Discredited. WASHINGTON. Oct. SI. Referring to the opinion expressed yesterday hi some of the Russian publications to the effect that Miss Stone Is probably dead it may be stated that the State D-partm-Mit i convim-Ml to the contrary, and is satisfied th.ü with the means oT communication it h is nw at its disposal th- event ol Miss Stone's d- ai certainly would be made known to it.

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 of plan, it was reported that Admiral Caillurd had been ordered to cruise within reach of a dispatch boat on Thursday for possible, further instructions, and it is sig nificant that the torpedo-boat destroyer Halleb'irdo left Toulon at full speed dur ing the afternon to rejoin the squadron." A dispatch from Toulon to the Figaro confirms the report of the return of the entire squadron and adds that Admiral Calllarl's division is still held in readiness to sail at a moment's notice. Editorially the Figaro and other morning papers ex press s-urprise at this perplexing and un explained move after the dispatch of Ad miral Caillard to the Levant had been of ficially announced. The Marseilles correspondent of the Ma tin says th: return was due to the fact that the squadron was supplied with only two days' rations. THURSDAY'S DEVELOPMENTS. Stutement of n French Official an lo the Proposed Demonstration. 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 against Turkey. 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 ing of the Cabinet Tuesday, at which M. Delra sse. the minister of foreign affairs, explained the Saltan's procrastination te gurdir.;: the Urem h Jemand.'-. Admiral Uail lard's sqi'.-i'iron consists of the armored cruisers Admiral l'othuan. Chanzy and La touche Treville. the second-class cruisers Du t'haybi and Cassard and the third-class crr.istr 'alilee. The crews aggregate S.'Jt'.s men. but the vessels will also carry landing parties. Tb" newspapers approve the govern ment's decision. The Journal des Debats says: "Everyone at Constantinople and the other capitals must be aware that Franco and Russia are completely in accord in th's matter. Under the circumstances it is difficult to btüeve that the Ottoman gov ernment will not come to its sense and. r ( opr.i7ing its error before it is too late, relieve us of the necessity of using other means thin those of diplomacy and cour teous discussion." La Liberie remarks that the fact that Ad- i mlr! Caillard has embarked two thousand marines is a warning to the Porte that France will not stop before a hlight show of i sistar.ee. but will go to the end even though war should ensue." 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. Ilnhl Hnzntikm Demand Pay. CONSTANTINOPLE, Oct.

SHOT AND THEN HANGED SILAS KSTEHS, A .NEGRO, LYNCHED D' A 3IOII OF KE.NTLCKIANS. Taken from Jail, Riddled with Mullets While AttemptiiiK to Escape mid llody Sivmig from Steps. HODGENVILLE. Ky., Oct. SI. A mob of fifty or seventy-five determined citizens came here early to-day and took from the Jail Silas Esters, a negro, charged with forcing Granville Ward, a fifteen-year-old boy residing near Upton, to commit a crime, and strung him to the courthouse steps. So quietly and systematically did the mob go about its work that . the citi zens of the town were in ignorance of the existence of a mob until the negro was in its clutches. The men composing the lynching party approached the jail, and upon their demand the keys were surrendered to them. The cell in which the negro was confined was entered, and the noose was adjusted about his neck. He was dragged down the jail stairs and out into the street. He managed to slip the noose from his neck and made a break for liberty. The mob. crazed with an ger, made after the negro, howling and firing at him with guns and pistols. The negro fell when about one hundred yards from the jailhouse. riddled with bullets. The noose was again placed about the ne gro's neck, and he was dragged to the courthouse and swung to the topmost steps. The mob was formed In the neighborhood of the crime. When the work of lynching the negro had. been accomplished the mem bers of the mob dispersed. FOR THE CHINESE COURT REPAIRS ON THE PEKING PALACE ALMOST COMPLETED. Great Care Taken to Hide All Evi dence of the Contjiiest by the Allied Powers. PEKING. Oct. 31. The repairs to the walls, towers and palace have been almost completed. A temporary structure of wood and doth has been erected in place of the destroyed ' Chien-Nen tower, under which Emperor Kwang-Su will pass when enter ing the Forbidden City.

TO KEEP OUT THE PLAGUE PRECAUTIONS .WILL RE TAKEN IIY t NITED STATES AI TIIOIUTIES. 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.

OPERATIONS OF TREASURY ENORMOl S Dl SINESS TRANSACTED IS THE LAST FISCAL YEAR. Animal Report of Ellis II. Roberts Shovtinic the Government's Finan cial Condition. 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 morrow will ghow that for the month of October, i:il, the total receipts were 831 32, and the expenditures $4o.64.".S3ö. which leaves a surplus for the month of $J,ls0.117.

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. 1S05 and 1800. The surplus of J77.717.SM was slightly under two million dollars ls.- than in Ii. Inclusive of th transactions affecting the public debt the aggregate receipts were $1,14G,4n0.3"O. and the aggre gate disbursements. $1.077 ,.3.002. For the first quarter of 100-'. although th act of March 2. Ld. was operative, reduc ing the revenue, the receipts were only $.,..417io less than for the like period of i:l, while the expenditures for the same months were reduced by almost exactly $:xoo't,oo. The reserve of $l.W.0i"' in Cold rcquind by the tlnancial law of l'J has been kept intact bv t he dally substitution of goid coin and bullion out of the general fund for the no Vs redeemed. These redemptions, which amounted to $24.7.SOS for the ear. do not indicate any preference for gold ov r paper, but simply tiie desire for large de nominations, which are most conveniently supplied in gold certificates. After making certain deductions for items not available in general payments the free cash was $1.V. 011.
