The reply, it is be lieved, will fail to supply a reasonable basis for successful mediation. It is assumed that the allies have pre sented impracticable terms in the be lief that the European powers would be unable to employ coercion against them. . It is stated in Belgrade that the Servian siege army, now preparing to bombard ceutarl, numbers 42,000 men. Allies' Terms. Sofia, March 14.-The reply of the Balkan allies on the question or mediation by the powers .was pre sented today to the foreign legations here. It declares that the Balkan na tions will accept European mediation on the following conditions: First-As a basis of negotiations for the delimitation of the territory be tween Turkey and the Balkan allies, a line shall be drawn from Rodosto, on the ,Sea of Marmora, to Cape Malatra, seven miles south of Midia, on the Black sea, excluding the pen insula of Gallipoli, which shall re main Turkish.

The Montana Pie Counter W\ashington, M. rch 14.-(Special.) -The close of the Taft administration found' sixteen presidential postoffipe appointments in Monta a unfilled. The lisit of postmasters of'presidential grade that Congressmen Evans and Stout will be called upon to make im mediate recommendations for appoint ment are Belt, Big Sandy, Chester, Columbus, Deer Lodge, Dillon, Eureka, Fort Benton, Joliet, Judith Gap, Ken dall, Laurel, Lewistown, Medicine. Lake, Plains and W\ibaux. The remaining postoffices, where the present incumbents' commissios have not expired, will not be changed until the postmasters have serqed their full four years. Under tilie unwritten law governing the matter, which has been the rule at Washington for the past '50 years, the congressman makes recommenda tions to the president in all postmas ter appointments, the senators taking all other appointments, such as mar shal, collectors of internal revenue, customs, land offices and United States attorney. The Missoulian has already announced the division of pa tronage agreed upon. There is a rumor here that Senator Walsh wanted to establish a 'new rule re garding Montana patronage, so as to have the entire congressional delega tion participate in recommending both postmasters and other officials. Sen ator Myers is understood to have been opposed to the. present rule; he wished to leave tihe appointment of postmasters entirely to the congress men. At the opening of the season there were due several nice, juicy, po litical plums in the shape of land of fice appointments, the time, of the present incumbents having e.xpired. These land office places included the receiver at Miles City, register and receiver at Billings, register and re ceiver at Bozeman, register and re - A Hmnan MatchFactory The body contains phosphorus sufficient tomake 483,000 matches.

Washington, March 14.-Four promi nent democrats were under considera tion today by President Wilson for im portant offices. Joseph E. Davies of Wisconsin, sec retary of the democratic national com mittee, had been offered the assistant secretaryship of war, and if he declines it, may get a foreign post. George Foster Peabody, former treasurer of the democratic national committee, is desired for the collectorship of the port of New York. With Secretary McAdoo of the treas ury department, Mr. Peabody saw the president today, and it was said that the collectorship had been offered him. Dudley Field Malone of New York, who for the last two years has cam paigned in several states for Mr. Wil son, has been offered the position of assistant to the attorney general in charge of cases before the customs court in New York. Mr. Malone is be' ing urged for an assistant secretary ship of state. Former Governor John Burke of' Nofth Dakota was regarded tonight as the choice of the administration for United States treasurer, and it is said he has the offer under consideration.

The issuance of such proclamations when vacancies occur in the position of senator is made mandatory upon the governor, but there is no manda tory provision 'compelling the county commissioners to arrange for such special election, and in several in stances in the state, the proclamations were not followed out.

'Nothing in the drama has been more sensational or astonishing than the rise to power of Mr. Woods in the $2 field of en tertainment. He is not only the best, but the only -living example of the value of training for the big game found on the old melodramatic circuit. Low-priced melodrama was a hard game-the returns were small, ani businesi instinct was needed to carry a producer over the rough roads. Within the passing of melodrama all of the men who were part of its man agerial organization moved out of public notice-all except A. H. Woods. It is said that Mr. Woods can see further into the future of the drama than any man engaged in the work, and that his judgment of theatrics: values, in a business sense, is as per fect as it is possible to expect in a field so dominated by speculation. At any rate, there is a great deal out ward evidence that the $2 drama has no more terrors to Mr Woods than the flimsy melodrama of, popular prices. In testimony thereto, Mr. Voods is one of the most extensive producers in the t.heatrical world, IT'S A SHAME Editor MisSoulian: After reading a letter from one of your correspondents in today's issue, I had a fit.
