THE TOPEKA DAILY STATE JOURNAL. MONDAY NIGHT.
TURKEYJflELDS. Again the Sultan Is Overawed by the Powers. Will Grant Financial Control of Macedonia. ORDERS TO THE FLEET Were to Land Men at Mitjlene Sunday Morning. Unless Directions Were Pre viously Countermanded. Vienna. Nov. 27 The Neu Frei Presse today published a dispatch from Con stantinople, saying- that the sultan through Tewnk Pasha, the foreign min ister, ha announced to Baron von Callc, the ambassador of Austria-Hungary, that Turkey accedes to the demands of the powers regarding the financial con trol of Macedonia. Order of the fleet. Constantinople, via Sofia. Bulgaria, Nov. 17. The instructions to the com manders of the international fleet were to land detachments and occupy Mity lene at 1 o'clock Sunday night unless contrary orders reached them in the in terim. Presumably the capital of the islands is now 1n the hands of the allied forces It was arranged In the Inter view between the minister of foreign affairs and the British and Austrian am bassadors on Saturday that if by 8 o'clock Saturday night the ambassadors received a written notice from the for eign minister promising acceptance of the demands of the powers th ambassa dors would telegraph to the fleet at Mttylene to suspend further operations until Monday. No communication, how ever, was received so it is suggested that Instructions slaying the hands of the commanders of the international fleet have not been dispatched. Defense of the Dardanelles. Washington, Nov. 27. The situation between Turkey and the European pow ers having become so serious during the last few days great interest is felt in military tlon of 1 naval circles on the ques ish defense of the Darda nelles. Turkey has spent a good deal of money on the defenses of this narrow trait and it is expected that she can put up a successful fight against a mod ern fleet. The principal fortifications of the Dai den lies which is a narrow strait of about three miles in length are found on the end nearest to the sea of Mar mora. At the entrance in the Aegean there are two old castles transformed into new fortifications armed with Krupp guns of 15, 24 and 28 centimeters. The traits at that point are about three miles broad, then growing larger and afterward growing again much smaller and at that point the chiaf fortifications are built. The Dardanelles at that point is divided into two straits by a small Island. On the European side there are nine fortifications. The first one of these has 21 Krupp guns of 21 to 35 cen timeters. On the Asiatic side there are three well armed fortifications. One of these has 12 Krupp guns of 35 cent! metres. These fortifications are man nsd b' two regiments. Their position is strong and as they are situated on the high banks of the straits they are able to hold ud a much larger naval force without great danger to themselves. The only way to make them harmless would be by attacking them from the high hills on the land side. To prevent this a continual line of fortifications has been built closing the peninsula off from the European side. These fortifications have all been built under the supervis ion of European military authorities and are well armed with the newest guns. An attacking fleet will have the disad vantage of having to proceed one by one and although it is very likely that the combined nations could take some of the Turkish islands, the opinion of many naval officers here Is that they will not be ilkely to try to sail up to Constanti nople. WHISKY NOT NECESSITY. Accordingly the Express Companies May Kaise Rate. By vote of the state board of rail road commissioners, it has beep decid ed that whisky is a luxury and not a necessity. It is understood that the vote stood two to one. but all efforts to find out who the "one" was have been absolutely futile. The decision came up in the case of the 1'nlted States Express company which applied for permission to in crease the "Jug rate" on whisky. Jug whisky has been coming into Kansas from Missouri at a "special commodity rate," considerably cheaper than other kinds of express matter. The express companies decided they would like to increase the rate. They accordingly filed with the board their formal ap plication, setting forth that whisky is a luxury, and not a necessity, and that it was not right to charge a less rate for luxury than for a necessity. In other words, they wanted to raise the rate on whisky shipments so that the necessities would not be the vicitims of discrimination. The board of railroad commissioners had a heated argument on the subject, and one of the members stuck out till the last that whisky was a necessity and should be brought in at the pres ent low rates. The other members, however, ruled against him and al lowed the express company to' put in the higher rate. All the other express companies will follow suit and whisky will have to pay an increased tariff. DRAMATIC STAGE SUICIDE. A Tragic Scene Which Had No Place in the Play. Paris, Nov. 25. There was an unre hearsed incident more tragic and dra matic than the play Itself on the stage of a theatre at La Rochelle. Mile. Loman. a pretty actress, was playing the heroine's role, and had reached that Doint In the play where an affect ing love sc.ne takes place. She was clasped in her stage lover's tight em brace when she suddenly wrenched herself free. 'I cannot tolerate It fur ihfr." she cried. These words of despair might have been In the play for all the audience knew, but when the actress, with a miick movement, tore the front of her f ntm and, pointing a revolver at her heart, fired, then it was realized that " im'redv not in the play had been nacted. The actress fell on the stage iul Tht spectacle was too muoh for many members of the audience, particularly women, some of whom swooned away. Mile. Loman had been in a despair in? frame of mind for some days. Her nerves, already shaken, completely failed her when, before the perform ance began, she had a dispute over a trivial matter with another artiste. The incident so preyed on her mind that she resolved to kill herself, and chose the stage as the most suitable place for committing her act of despair. SOME WINTER MODES. Spreading Skirts Indicate Use of Hair cloth Vogue of Velvet Continues. A great deal that is practical as well as artistic Is to be found in the winter garments. Dealers are realiz ing that women appreciate utility no less than beauty, and happy Indeed is the circumstance under which the two can be combined. Women are indebt ed to the craze for automobiling for many of their practical ideas in dress today. So many women of wealth and fashion are fond of motoring that in the selection of their clothes for a sea son the garments which they expect to wear for this purpose are among the chief considerations. Many of the practical sensible ideas adopted for automobile suits, wraps, hats and ac cessories are being used for general utility wear by other women. Rain Coats for Fair Autoists. One of the first necessities for the woman who automobiles is an envel oping and protective wrap; one that is, above all other things, impervious to rain. The best tailors and cloak- makers, finding the need of these gar ments among their wealthy patrons, are bending their energies toward producing especially desirable things. The material of which such garments are made Is of vital importance; vital because it is in the wear and rain- resisting quality of the fabric that the success of the garment lies. Wraps and suits made of grirron- ette. a new rain proof fabric, are among the first favorites of the hour. The very handsome appearance of this fabric, the beauty of texture and coloring, the material being shown in a number of different shades, and its wear-resisting and rain-repelling qualities, make It ideal for both gen eral utility and storm wear. This material is sufficiently handsome to make it acceptable and desirable for the more dressy styles In suits ana wraps as well as the plain tailored effects. Leading tailors and dress makers are using a lot of the grlffon ette. In the selection of the trim mings for these gowns and wraps, care is taken that these trimmings may be so arranged that they may be protected by the garment itself when caught in a sudden shower, or such materials as are not affected by the rain are chosen. Gray Griffonette Fashionable. An automobile coat of more than usual interest, because of its combi nation of the beautiful and the useful, is developed in gray griffonette. The coat is cut on distinctly new lines. Wing-like pieces fall from the shoul ders to form a drapery surrounding the medium-sized coat sleeve. The whole garment is loose and enveloping and Is finished with novel folds of the ma terial trimming all edges of the coat as well as the sleeves drapery. A very handsome collar finishes the neck. This collar expresses not only a novel but a clever device, and shows the means by which a handsome trimming may be put on a garment primarily in tended for protection against the rain. This collar is a short fiat stole made of a white broadcloth and richly braid ed and embroidered in black and white. The under side of the collar is faced with the rainproof griffonette. When worn in the rain, this collar is turned up about the neck and the ends crossed over, covering perfectly and protecting the handsome trimming The narrow cuff bands set Inside the sleeve are also of the handsomely em broidered white broadcloth. These cuff pieces are so adjusted that they may be turned back Inside the sleeve for protection in case of rain. Variety in Season's Skirts. Much of the novelty of the season's fashions lies in the skirt. About all that can be said of sleeves is that they are medium in size, and short. But whole chapters might be written of the new skirts. So great is their variety that there are hardly two alike But In the new models It will be noted that they agree on one point at least, and that is, the increasing width at the hem. Another secret of the new skirts is that they are being given some sup port at the hem. Usually this support is a haircloth facing of almost fairy weight; so sheer and light as to add nothing appreciably to the weight of the skirt, and so flexible as to give no suggestion of stiffness about the hem. In fact, the haircloth, as now put In the skirts, does not come fully to the edge but is set from four to six Inches above the hem, thus supporting out neither stiffening nor making ungrace ful the skirt edge. Velvet for Evening Gowns. I he vogue or velvet grows more pronounced as the season advances It seems as if velvet and velveteen which, by the way. Is now dyed In fast colors -enters Into almost every gown this season. JTor evening wear. for dressy day gowns, and for utility gowns the pile fabrlos are being used Light tone velvets of chiffon weight are being combined with chiffon and net to make some of the handsomest evening gowns. Reception gowns in princesse style are made of the fine quality velveteens. Walking suits are also greatly liked in the English dyed velveteens. Hand embroidery is seen on the handsomer velvet gowns. The wis teria design in embroidery is most ar tistic and very popular. Velvet gowns trimmed with colored gauzes and rib bons Interwoven with gold and silver threads are new. Fur-Trimmed Redingotc. The redingote is a favorite mode The use of fur edgings is noted on some of the newest redingotes. An attractive model is furtrimmed all about the edge and has a broad collar and a turn over collar or rur. rne coat opens to show a very long fitted vest, which is ornamented with em broidery and handsome buttons. Some of the handsomest gowns of the sea son are being made with lace pelisses or redingotes. These are particularly light when worn over net dresses handsome model in heavy Irish lace 1 half length and has short sleeves. It Is worn with a trained net dress. The French dress makers are find ing a new way in which to use th empire mode. A number of model gowns are being shown in which the empire drapery effect is introduced only in a sort of overdress or drapery of lace or other transparent fabric, the form being revealed by the fitted gown underneath. One model of this order is of white Chantilly lace over dress on distinct empire lines, worn over a fitted slip of white chiffon hav ing neck and girdle outlined with col ored embroidery. The home dress maker finds unlimited use for girdle frames and collars stiffened with feath erbone. These girdles and collars are the saving clause with the unskilled dressmaker and the greatest of labor savers for th skilled. CO ALTRUST LOSES United States Supreme Court Decides Kansas Case. Osage Operators Must Testify in Shawnee District Court. Washington, Nov. 27. In the case of John D. Jack, against the state of Kan sas, the supreme court of the United States today held that the federal con stitution and the federal laws can not be invoked to relieve a witness from testifying before a state court in a pro ceeding involving the anti-trust laws of the state, thus affirming the decision of the state supreme court. Justice Peck ham delivered the opinion. This case against Jack was one of the results of the prosecution of the Osage county coal operator for maintaining a trust. The anti-trust proceeding was com menced about two years ago by Otis Hungate, county attorney of Shawnee county. John Jack and other operators were subpoenaed to testify, and when placed on the witness stand, refused to answer certain questions on the ground that they would incriminate themselves under the federal statutes. E. A. Aust tin tried the case before the supreme court, and Rossington, Smith & Histed represented Jack. Under the ruling of the court, the hearing of the anti-trust proceeding can now go ahead. County Attorney Hun gate wfll doubtless summon the wit nesse and resume the hearing of the tes timony. DR. EVANS IS RECALLED Trustees of First Methodist Church Ask Him to Come Home. The board of trustees of the Firet M. E. church took action Sunday upon the request of Dr. Wilbur Chapman for the further retention of Dr W. C. Evans of the First M. E. church in the evangelical work which is being carried on at New ark, N. J., telegraphing their refusal. Ten days ago Dr. Evans went east to assist Dr. Chapman in the work which the latter is carrying on in New Jersey, the plans which Dr. Evans laid at that time involved simply an absence from his pulpit of the ten days. That time Is now up and Dr. Chapman telegraphed to John V. Abrahams or the board ot trustees asking that the board grant a further leave of absence. The board met following the usual morning ser vices Sunday and after a number of motions had been put, among them some being in favor of a further leave of ab sence, decided to refuse the request of Dr. Chapman and later telegraphed heir decision to that effect. Mr. P. I. Bonebrake, who made the motion, said this morning: "There was no want of harmony; there was nothing of that kind. We simply considered that it was wiser to have Dr. Evans here than there because of the evangelist's meetings which have been held in Topeka. We considered that we needed his presence here in order that the best results might attend the following up of the evangeli cal work done at that time." I exnect that Dr. Evans will iturn and that nothing further in the way of an extension of time will be asked for," said Chas. Adams, secretary of the board. The close association which the pas tor of the First Methodist church ex perienced with Dr. Chapman In the lat- ter's work in Topeka caused the strong est sort of admiration for the Topeka man on the part of the noted evangelist. Just before leaving, Dr. Chapman en deavored to have Dr Evans devote all of his time to that character of minis try. Dr. Evans refused to do this though he was strongly tempted, fol lowing this there came so many re peated urglngs from he evangelist for Dr. Evans' presence In the New Jersey revivals that the latter acceded after having received the permission of the board. Strictly speaking the board of trus tees have no dictatorial powers as far as outlining the work for Dr. Evans or securing his immediate return and their attitude has been more along the lines of advisory capacity than any other. There is but small question but what Dr. Evans will occupy the pulpit at the usual services Sunday morning, return ing sometime during the week. PAVEMENT IS APPROVED Twelve Blocks Included in the En gineer's List. Twelve adidtional blocks of new pav ing have had their petitions approved by City Engineer McCabe and declared to meet the requirements laid down in the city ordinances. The remonstrances which have been filed against the petl tions are declared to be inadequate. The following pavement is in the list approval: West Eighth avenue, Lincoln to West streets; Lincoln street from Eighth ave nue to Tenth avenue; Clay street from Tenth avenue to Eleventh street; Clay street from Eleventh street to Thir teenth street; Lane street from Eighth to Tenth avenue; Lincoln street from Seventh street to Eighth avenue and Jefferson street from Sixth avenue to Eighth avenue. These petitions with those already ap proved by the city council make a total of twenty-two and one-half blocks of paving petitioned for already for next year. The limit set upon a pavement for 1906 by the council Is 30 blocks, this leaves but seven and one-half blocks which can be petitioned for. A movement is on foot to extend the pavement on West Tenth avenue to the city's limits. In order to do so some additional tracts of land will have to be taken in the city. All the portion of the city lying south of Tenth avenue is in the city but that north is still out side. The greater portion of that nort is the newly laid out Melrose addition Washburn avenue is the west limit of the city limits. The above paving petitions will be con sideied at a meeting of the streets and walks committee set for Wednesday evening. CITY LAW SUSTAINED. By a Decision of the I. S. Supreme Court in Garbage Case. Washington. Nov. 27. The supreme court of the t nited States today sus talned the ordinances of Detroit and San Francisco granting exclusive fran chises to remove the garbage of the two cities respectively. The decision was Justice Harlan's and the ordin ances were held to be in harmony with the rights of municipalities to exercise police control of the protection of the public health. GO TO JURY TONIGHT. Heck Case Has Reached the Argu ment Stage. The trial of the state against Cal Heck which occupied most of the time of the district court last week was re sumed this morning, and the interest which seems centered in this trial has not abated in the least. Although the rain was falling and everything indi cated that the day would be an un pleasant one, the court room was crowded by the time the case was called. As in the past many of the spectators are women and some of them have babies in their arms. It was one of the latter who this morning caused Judge Dana to interrupt Attor ney Costigan, and with apologies both to the attorney and the mother of the child which was fretting and crying, asked that the child be taken from the room. M. F. Laycock, who was acting as court stenographer in the court of To peka when Heck had his preliminary trial, was recalled by the defense and asked to read portions of the evidence which was wanted for the impeach ment of John Groff. He was permit ted to read the portion which told of the manner in which the confession was obtained from John Groff. which was but a small part of the transcript which the defense desired placed be fore the Jury. At 10:20 the court began reading the instructlpns to the Jury and finish ed by a quarter of 11. The instructions are not bulky and are clear and con cise and the attorneys for the state and the defendant are greatly pleased with the instructions as read by the court. Judge Dana held that owing to the importance of the case that there would be no time limit as to the arguments of the attorneys in the case. Capt. McNary, assistant prosecut ing attorney, made the opening ad dress for the state, speaking about an hour. During the opening speech he exhibited to the Jury the bloody gar ments worn by the victim, Kuntz, on the night that the assault was made, as well as the blood stained trousers which were taken from the defendant at the time of his arrest. The trousers show a dozen holes which indicate the locations of the blood spots which were cut out by Chemist O'Donnell, who made the examination for the state. The most gruesome ex hibit of the collection is the blood stained overcoat which was thrown over the head of the victim by his as sailant as he battered on the skull with a hammer. The state claims that the overcoat was thrown over the vic tim's head and face so that the ham mer which belonged to the defendant would not show the effects ot the blood. There are two holes through the overcoat about four Inches apart where it laid over the temple of Mr Kuntz when he was struck. These two holes in the coat correspond ex actly with the holes on the forehead of the victim where the skull has been crushed in and . where the depression is almost an inch in depth. Attorney Costigan, of Ottawa, began speaking for the defense at 11:45 and continued until the court a recess ror the noon hour. His argument so far indicates that the defense is not rely ntr so much on their attempted alibi as they are on convincing me jury that the witnesses for the state are unreliable. This is particularly notice able in the case of the prosecuting witness in the case, Mr. Kuntz, who it is charged is not competent to testify because of tne excessive use or arugs. At the rate the t;ae Is progressing it s likely that the arguments or tne at torneys will be completed some time during the afternoon and that the case will be given to the jury late in the day. RAISE THE BARS. City Board of Health May Quarantine Against Oakland After All. Careless quarantine measures on the part of the county health authorities with reference to the diphtheria epi demic which exists in and adjacent to Oakland is the charge that the city board jof health makes. Measures may be taken at the meeting of the board this evening to quarantine the city against Oakland. "Thev are certainly paying small at tention to keeping the diphtheria from spreading," said Dr. Flummer of the city board of health. "I understand that they are not fumigating tne houses or the clothes of the people over there where cases of diphtheria have existed In the family. They are permitting them to mingle around with other people in this condition and to board street cars. There seems to be no thorough attempt at enforcing quarantine regulations and the condi tions are very favorable to a very serious epidemic. Topeka must do something to protect herself against it. If the county doesn t make an effort to fumigate in Oakland I am in favor of seeing the five-mile quarantine reg ulation re-established and have the city go ahead and take steps to enforce the quarantine. "Of course I don't like the idea, but if it is a case of saving the lives of the children of Topeka against the saving of dollars, I am In favor of saving the children. I understand that the coun ty physician, D. T. Nicholl, has offered to furnish the material for fumiga tion, but has told the people that they must perform the fumigation them selves. We shall certainly take some sort of measure this evening." "I won't consent to a restoration of that five mile quarantine order," said City Physician H. B. Hogeboom. "It will be a cold day in August when I will stand for anything of that kind. I think that we should quarantine To peka against Oakland or something of that nature. "There is very lax enforcement of the quarantine in Oakland and in some cases there is no quarantine at all. A case just came to me today. A family by the name of Sheffield, living at 219 Freeman avenue, had a child taken sick and die with diphtheria, but I am told by the attending physician that a card was never placed on the house." The enforcement of the order to vaccinate the school children in To peka is another subject which will be considered by the board. The board of education has balked at the at tempt to vaccinate. EDITORS WILL GO TO JUNCTION That City Practically Certain to Be Scene of Next State Association. This afternoon the officers and ex ecutive committee of the State Edi torlal association will meet at the Copeland hotel at 5 o'clock for the purpose of selecting the time and plac for the annual convention of the association. J. E. Junkin, of Sterling, the secretary of the association, came this morning, and it is expected that nearly all of the officers will be here in time for the meeting. Junction City is practically certain to be selected as the place for the next meeting, and the time Will likely be the last week in January. The officers and members of the committee are as follows: Mack P. MARKETSTQDAY. Wheat Is Firm Despite Bearish Influences. Clear Weather Helps Bears in Corn Pit. LIVE STOCK TRADE.
