"Many of the spectators were of
the opinion th?t the game could
have continued. Of course, the
umpires on the field s re in much
better position to judge condi?
tions and their effects on play.
But, regard.ess of any question
whether this decision was erro?
neous, the two ISSew York clubs,
acting for themselves and their
?Staats, have decided, with the ap?
proval of the comm.ssioner, that

l .-. ci Trouble and Go!-]* stepped In
iront of av.cther young tornndo yester
??yt?at came near leading to a wreck,.
Tfet Giants and Yankees, fighting out
inefrsecoiiu battle, had just closed out
tie tenth inning, with the score knot
fid Et 3 and 3. The minute hand on
tie big clock in center field was point?
ing twenty minutes to 5. There was a
h?e over the diamond, but the sk>
abovedas cloudless. At this moment
the two senioi umpires, George Hilde
btahd and William J. Klem, ordered
the announcement made that the game
WM called on account of darkness.
For pe'haps a second or two t.e big
crowd of a3 000 fans sat stunned. And
dien from almost every nook in the
grounds, from grandstand to bleachers,
? terrific rear of protest swept back
?nd forth across the field, followed by
the prolonged "Boo!" of the Raspberry
Chorus working at full bast.
In the excitement that followed hun?
dreds of enraged fans swept around
J^idge Kenesaw Mountain Landis, while
thousands of others began to pour a
fusillade of burning words against the
club owners, none of whom had any
more to do with the decision than
Bab? Ruth or Kemal Pas! a.
The two senior umpires, Klem and
Hildebrand had decided an inning be?
fore taat the game should be called
after the tenth on account of the heavy
haze, which thpy claimed was obscur?
ing the pla'c throrgh the blur of the
center field background.
With No Hope of Reward
The two umpires gave their decision
courageously and honestly, with no
other hope of rewcrd beyond an extra
days work without anv extra emolu?
ment for the trouble they were taking
<m. The light was failing slowly, but
in our opinion another inning could
nave been played without any trouble.
And due to the immen.se amount of
tooney that had been paid in and the
peat amount of gossip that baseball
cas drawn in the past few years, it
*ould have been wiser to have let tho
game run out at least another chapter
v> effectually stifle any shrill voice of
?dignant protest, fair or otherwise.
? n?th unquestioned honesty the sen?
ior umpires thought that the combina?
tion of slow pitching and approaching
t*i!ight might run into serious troub e
later on if they attempted to add an?
other chtpter to the rerial story,

Reactionary
Accepts Nomination and
Opens Campaign With
Hearst, Murphy and

Scoffs at Charges
He Was Extravagant
Refers toPresentRegime's
Showing of Economies
as 'Trick Bookkeeping9
Former Governor Alfred E. Smith,
accepting the Democratic nomination
for Governor at the National Demo?
cratic Club last night, said the issue in
the campaign was whether the people
wanted a reactionary or a progressive
Governor at Albany.
"When you get rid," said Mr. Smith,
"of the lovely picture painted by the
press bureau of the welfare and
economy Governor, the friend of the
common people, of labor and of women
and children, what is left is a real
reactionary Governor of the old-fash?
ioned Republican school. That, it seems
to me, is the issue, and backed by the
record I am prepared to meet it."
Mr. Smith denied Governor Miller's
charge that the Smith administration
had been friendly to the interests, say?
ing that the only interests he served
were the people's interests. He re?
peated the charge made by Senator
James J. Walker In the Democratic
keynote speech at Syracuse, that the
"'"''?-?* o" economy made by Governor
Miller were false, and said the fact
was that Governor Miller's two years
in office cost the taxpayers of the "state
$44,090,651.95 more than did tho Smith
administration.
Hearst Clan Missing
Although Mayor George R. Lnnn of
Schenectady, the nominee for Lieuten
??'nt Governor, and oth?r nominees of
the Syracuse convention were on hand,
together with most of the leading Dem?
ocrats of the state, it was a matter of
comment that William Randolph
Hearst, Charles F. Murphy and Mayor
Hylan were absent. When Mayor Hy?
lan was asked earlier in the day if he
would attend he said:
"I cannot teli you now, for I am so
busy with the budget, I havon't even
taken any time off to go to the world's
series at the Polo Grounds."
It was ??,->;. -r-z'-agsd that either
Hearst or Hy?aii won!?S be present? hut
the absence of Murphy was a surprise,
Ex-Governor Smith began his speech
by saying that for moro than a genera?
tion the Republican party in this state
had maintained a bureau within the
State Committee for tho purpose of
spreading propaganda.
Mr. Smith said that the humanitarian
achievements credited to Governor Mil?
ler were largely imaginary, and that
the great public problems which the
Governor has claimed he has solved
are not solved, but left in a state of
"hopeless controversy."
Smith charged that Governor Mil?
ler's economies in reorganization "rep?
resent largely complicated trick book?
keeping." And as to the claim made
by the Governor that the last Legisla?
ture enacted more laws to promote
real social welfare than had even been
proposed "during all the time that the
demagogues and agitators were giving
lip service to social welfare," Mr.
Smith replied that "all the welfare
measures of any importance enacted in
this state in twenty years" were en?
acted by Democrats. '
Terms Miller Reactionary
"By enlarging upon a few minor
achievements of his second year," Mr.
Smith went on, "the picture drawn
of Governor Miller for election pur?
poses bears no resemblance to the
real Governor, the record of whose
first year indicated what he really had
in his heart. I would be the last man
in the state who would question Gov?
ernor Miller's personal ability and I
will, therefore, deal only with the
record, and if any one can make out of
that record anything but the history
of a reactionary governor, then I am
prepared to confesa that I do not know
the difference between reaction and
progress.
"Governor Miller in his speech spoke
of special interests, and made ref?
erence in that connection to my ad?
ministration, and charged that my ad?
ministration was helpful to them. The j
only special interests in this state that |
have received my assistance are tho
special interests of the people. I was
visited by their representatives. One
special interest was the League of
Women Voters, who came to me in sup- ;
port of a minimum wage law for ;
women and children in factories and?
for an eight-hour day for women m in?
dustry and for child welfare bills. I ?
met them and listened to them, and I i
sent their recommendations to the Leg- I
islature and the Republican majority ?
turned them down. When they called
on Governor Miller he told them they j
were a menace to the state.
"Another special interest?the rep- |
resentatives of organized labor?called ?
on me. I recommended a great many
things at their suggestion that I

Governor Introduced by His
Old Teacher, Who Recalls
His Speech 40 Years Age
Governor Miller, who spoke to abou
1,000 persons last night nt the Jainaici
| Training and Normal School, Jamaica
j under the auspices of the Jamaica Re
i publican Club, was introduced by Di
j Archibald C. McLaughlin, now a publi
j school principal in Jamaica, who las
| introduced "little Nate Miller," as h?
; called him, forty years ago in a priz'
j speaking contest in an upstate school
Little Nate won the contest, deliver
' ing "Toussaint L'Overture" with mud
fire and emotion, said Dr. McLaughlin
He was a teacher in the school th
1 youthful orator attended and said tha
i Nate had the principles and the physi
'. quo which would have gained him al
i tho Boy Scout badges and insignit
i had that order been in. existence a
' the time.
Governor Miller's eyes were suffuse
and his glasses fogged with moistur
; as Dr. McLaughlin told of the mothc
who was her. boy's inspiration an
guide. Tt was Nate's mother, ho saic
, who saved the butter money and th
egg money and tho money she got fo
the fruit from her particular peac
tree in order that her son might hav
? an education.
Defends Administration
i It was not the kind of talk, Go\
! ernor Miller said when he rose t
1 speak, that put him in the mood for
' political speech, but he was going t
defend his administration. He had bee
challenged by his opponents, he sail
in the matter of public utilities
Governor Miller said he, had a fc
. words to say right now about one pul
lie utility company. When he took o:
fice, he said, the telephone compan
had 150 ra^ ?afies pending, in one c
; which testimony already had bee
I taken for two years. At that rate, h
said, it would be generations befoi
the docket was clear.
"Tho reorganized Public Servie
Commission," he said, "studied stati
wide telephone conditions in order t
obtain data which should be the bas
of state-wide telephone rates. Tho n
port, which shows what community
were overburdened and what paymenl
the telephone company made to su]
sidiaries in other states, is almost cori
pleted.
"A temporary readjustment in rat<
! was ordered, reducing them all ov<
i the state. The telephone compar
; went to the Federal court and obtain?
! an injunction restraining the commi
j sion from enforcing the rate. The ca?
? has been appealed by the state."

"It the injunction is sustained," Go'
ernor Miller added, turning to whei
Senator William M. Calder, anothi
speaker, was seated, "we will take tl
fight to Congress."
When he put into effect his reorgan
zation plan, he said, he found eigl
departments functioning separate
within the old commission, all of the
gathering information and preparii
voluminous reports which were pu
lished two or three years too late

and the-commission was put on a bus

Time Is Declared to Have

On Debt Suggested
Taxation of Public Se?
curities and Lower Rail
Rates and Wages Urged
Two conclusions, unrelated except
In so far as both have an important
bearing upon the future economic and
financial prosperity of the United
States, stood out last night upon the
termination of the formal delibera?
tions of the American Bankers Asso?
ciation. The first, of interest as vital
to the world as to this country, was
that the time had come when America,
through official representation on the
Reparation Commission, through mod?
erate interpretation and application of
the new tariff schedules, and, finally,
through specific formulation of princi?
ples upon which a policy of co-opera?
tion with Eui'ope could be based,
should abandon her aloofness and as?
sume a more active part in the settle?
ment of International problems.
The second, more strictly of domes?
tic import, was that, without impairing
the right of workers to leave their em?
ployment whenever they desire, some
3neans should bo devised to adjust dis?
putes between capital and labor with?
out recourse to industrial warfare.
Other Reforms Advocated
These conclusions, embodied in tha
rsohitions adopted at the closing of the
general session of the convention, were
? supplemented by resolutions and by
i committee reports urging, among other
, things, a constitutional amendment
| permitting: taxation of securities is
! sued by Federal, state and municipal
governments and by other political
' sub-divisions; the necessity for a fur?
ther downward readjustment of rail?
road wages and rates in the promotion
of prosperity, and legislation making
optional the par collection of checks.
A digression frosn the fixed program
of tha convention occurred at the
meeting of the trust companies divi?
sion in the afternoon, at which Henry
Morgenthau, former Ambassador tc
Turkey, gave Great Britain credit iot
saving civilization by hnlting the war
cruzed Turks, and appealed to the bank'
ers to realize their responsibility tc
support the effort which, single-hand?
ed, she was undertaking.
Further development of the themf
of the handling of international debts
was chiefly discernible in an interview
granted by the Right Hon. Reg?
inald McKenna, chairman ?f the Lon?
don City and Midland Bank, Ltd., and
in an address delivered by Alvin W
Krech, president of the Equitable
Trust Company, before the trust com?
panies division. Mr. McKenna ex?
plained that the interest received by
British citizens on their foreign in?
vestments, the principal of which he
placed at between two and three bil?
lion pounds sterling, would more than
provide for interest and sinking fund
services on the British debt to Amer?
ica, and contended that the United
States, as Great Britain had, would
find a policy of "splendid isolation"
unsupportable.
Ten-Year Debt Holiday Suggested
Mr. Krech urged a holiday of ten
years for the European Continental
debtors to the United States, during
which their obligations would be re?
garded as non-existent. His proposal
was brought forward on the ground
that it would create an atmosphere o?
"judicious aloofness" in which to ap?
proach the subject asid not as a "veiled
moratorium." He said the American
comsr.ission appointed under act o?
Congress was so limited in powers as
virtually to preclude its refunding o?
the war debts, characterizing its crea?
tion as an invitation to talk things
over rather than as a categorical sum?
mons to the Allies to pay. He ques?
tioned whether even payment of the
British debt could be accomplished
with advantage to us under the terms
of the funding bill and whether for?
giveness of the French and Italian
debt would aid the Allies in collecting
from Germany.
"Since France and Italy are perfectly
safe in leaving out of their calcula?
tions, for the moment at least, the
amounts they owe to America," Mr
Krech asked, "what immediate good
could a cancellation of the debt bring
about?"
Saner Europe Observed
Mr. Krech argued that refusal of the
United States officially to participate
in European councils had not lowered
an asbestos curtain, financially and
economically speaking, between Europe
and America and that America would
not withhold her co-operation from ?
Europe which showed some sense oi

"My Last Hike," Says Weston as
He Tramps In From Buffalo
Edward Payson Weston, veteran pe?
destrian, sat up in his bed at the Hotel
Theresa, 125th Street and Seventh Ave?
nue, last night in his red flannel night?
shirt and declared that this was his
last hike. He is eighty-four years old
and since September 4 has walked from
Buffalo to the Hotel Theresa. When he
has walked to the City Hall this morn?
ing he will have completed a 495 mile
trip afoot.
It isn't that he isn't as sturdy a
walker as he ever was, in spite of his
eighty-four years; he wants to retire
from his profession while he is still
among the leaders in it. His decision
may not be final, at that. Walking has
a tremendous lure fir liim.. ?" -*?? -
young squirt twenty or thirty years
fro mnow sbould challenge him to a
thousand - mile stroll he probably
couldn't resist the temptation.
One thing he is going to give up,
however, and in this his decision ia
unalterable. That is farming, and he's
going to find giving up farming-about
as hard as Huck Finn figured it would
be to give up green persimmons. For
nine years Mr. Weston has been a
farmer in Ulster County. It hae been
an expensive experiment.
"Every tomato I raised cost me
$1.25," said Mr. Weston, "and every
potato cost me $1.50."
That made his living expenses
pretty high, for he couldn't depend en?
tirely upon the cheaper vegetable, of
course. As a matter of fact, tomatoes
and potatoes are among tha things Mr.
Weston has sworn off using.
"I live on milk and chocolate largely
now," he said; "just milk and choco
lae, you might say, and I found after
two days o nthe road that I could hit
my old stride of four miles an hour
and keep it up seven or eight hours a
day."
He made sixty miles in his two best
days during the trip. This morning he
will start for City Hall about 9 o'clock.
A band and a police escort, he says, are
to meet him at Seventy-second Street

him. His niece, Miss Anna Hagan, who

Prosecutor Has Passionate
Missives Which Indicate
Dr. Hall's Guilt in Face
of Support of Church
Autopsy Shows He Fought
Authorities Believe Pastor
Struggled to Protect
Mrs. Mills From Injury
By Boyden Sparkes
NEW BRUNSWICK, N. J., Oct. 5.?
It became known to-day that Prose?
cutor Joseph Strieker has in his pos?
session two letters, filled with expres?
sions of love and passion, that were
written by the Rev. Edward W. Hall -o
Mrs. Eleanor Mills. These letters were
found among the love notes in .Mrs.
Mills's handwriting that were scattered
by the murderer with a gesture of con?
tempt over the forms of the two vic?
tims. s
Heretofore it has been contended by
the officials that there were no letters
from D*s Hall to Mrs. Mills, and there
lias been doubt expressed- in some
quarters as to whether the. rector had
been faithless to his office and his
wile. , The vestry of the Church of St.
John the Evangelist, Bishop Paul Mat?
thews and Mrs. Frances Hall, widow cf
the murdered clergyman, have all de?
clared an unshaken faith in his integ?
rity. The letters in his own hand
leave no doubt that can be sincere.
They were signed, it was said, with the
initials D. T. L., often used as the ab- j
breviatlon" for the German of "Your
true love."
The autopsy performed in the Ki-iars I
County Morgue to-day established one
Other thing: Dr. Hall was shot alter ?a
struggle in which he skinned his
knuckles and one arm. The shot that
killed him entered his right temple and
emerged behind his left ear after the
steel-jacketed bullet had mushroomed
and ranged downward through his
brain. A second bullet clipped a tiny
bit of flesh from the lobe of his left
ear. It is possible this bullet was one
of the three that were found in Mrs.
Mills's skull.
The bruises on the minister's knuck?
les are belioved to indicate that he had
fought before death came, perhaps to
save Mrs. Mills from the frenzied at?
tack of a jealous person. There can
be no doubt that the murderer felt
a greater degree of vindictiveness to?
ward Mrs. Mills than tov/ard the minis?
ter. The slashing of the woman's
throat is believed to establish that.
As Dr. Hall's arm was beneath Mrs.
Mills's shoulders when the bodies were
found there is little reason to ques- j
tion that he was shot first. He was
solidly built and capable of using his
Y. M, C. A. gymnasium trained mus?
cles with powerful effect in a fight.
It would have been the natural thing
for the murderer to dispose of him
first.
Shell Found in Waistcoat
This is substantiated by one other
bit of mute evidence. When the body
of Dr. Hall was disrobed at the morgue
here an empty shall cast from the
murderer's weapon was found inside
the top of his waistcoat. An auto?
matic pistol discharges shells at right
angles to the line of fire. It is high?
ly improbable that Dr. Hall was stand?
ing when this shell was thrown and
therefore it is assumed he was dead '
before Mrs. Mills and that tho shell
in his clothes was thrown from one
of the three bullets that pierced her
brain.
With Dr. Hall and Mrs. Mills lying
there dead the murderer was moved
by a strange impulse to arrange their
limbs neatly? Then Dr. Hall's panama
hat was laid over his face and Mrs.
Mills's scarf over hers. That scarf, it
was learned to-day, was one of several

Bpr.ctal Dispatch to The Tribune
COBALT, Ont., Oct. 5.?More than
one hundi-ed dead, five thousand home?
less and property loss high in the
millions is believed to have been the
cost of the forest fires that swept th.
Cobalt region yesterday. Rain has been
failing throughout the district since
noon to-day and the fire menace is defi?
nitely at an end. It will be days, how?
ever, before the victims have been
counted, for the refugees are scattered
over a wide area.
In Haileybury alone 2,500 are home?
less to-night. The city is in darkness
and without water supply. Tho prop?
erty losa in Haileybury and North Co?
balt combined will exceed $10,000,000.
The fire covered an arca ?f about 100
j by fifty miles. The provincial govern
f ment of Ontario announced to-night
i thai the towns of Haileybury, Thorn
! loe, Heeslip, Charlton, New LiskearJ,
Breutha, Eiiglehsrt and Dax had been
destroyed, and the settlements lying
between these places wiped out. The
countryside away to the north for fifty
miles is marked by ruin after ruin
where farmsteads were in the path of
the flames.
Families Are Separated
Twenty Haileybury dead have been
identified and more bod:es are being
removed from the ruins by the rescue
.-icjuads, working t! rough the night
with the aid of torches, More than
3,000 refugees have been '.Tken by
train to North Bay, where the survi?
vors of the conflagration are being con?
centrated by the Ontario authorities.
Military officials are distributing
blankets and food among the sufferers.
There has been no organized attempt
as yet to bring families together. In
the flig'.H: from the burning district
many ch.ldren became separated from
their elders.
Loss of life was heavy in the iso?
lated communities. At Thornloe six
unidentified bodies were found beside
the railroad tracks. At Heaslip, Robert
Bond, his wife and eight children, his
parents and his brother-in-law were
burned to death.
Haileybury is the trading center in
the Lake Temiskaming region. It had
a population of 10,000 and was proud
of its cathedral, schools and homes. All
buildings in the city are in ruins.
QUEBEC, Cet. 5.?Timberland in the
St. Maurice Valley is ablaze to-night,
fires spreading south and southeast to?
ward this city and the villages lying
north of Montreal in what is described
as Canada'3 worst conflagration.
Public prpyers for rain were raised
near Grand Mere toward which the
fires steadily are creeping. The flames
are menacing the $500,000 pulpwood
tree nursery of the Laurentide Com?
pany at Proulx and are licking thcii
way toward 50,000 cords of lumber.
Fire Rages in Two Provinces
The extent of the area ablaze in St
Maurice Valley has not been estimated
the fires burning far to the nprth, ?3
regions sparsely populated. The entii:
burning area spreads over tho tw<
provinces of Quebec and Ontario fan
shaped, with the three cities of Ot
tawa, Quebec and Montreal to th<
south.
Of these three Montreal is probablj
the nearest to the larger fires, a smoki
pall having darkened that city late to
day.
Port Neuf, to the north of Montreal
is threatened. A large fire is burnini
between Riviere-a-Peu and Rosseau'
Mills and threatens to sweep througl
the forest area of Notre Dames "de
Anges.
The fire in Ontario began on Tues
day afternoon. Hearing reports o
heavy forest fires in Michigan, to th
east in Quebec and over the border i
Maine, farmers working in a potat
field on the outskirts of Haileybur
started a rubbish fire to burn dried pc
tato tops. To-night, as a result, onl
twenty homes stand in the picturesqu
lake town of Haileybury,
From the potato patch the fire sprea
to bushes and then to neighborin
woods, which were dry as tinder. Soo
the fire was beyond human control.
From Haileybury the people rushe
to the lake shore when the fire close
in on the town. Mrs. T. A. Cobbol.
wife of the county clerk, was one <
the first to lose her life. She attemp
ed to rescue an aged uncle, a crippl
was overcome by smoke and burned 1
death.
According to reports from Cobal
one of tho dead is H. Elthe, a form?

Midnight Session as
Harington Radios News
of Clash of Delegates
Allied Generals Go
Back to Warships
Renewal of Conference Is
Uncertain; Italy Alone
Supports Great Britain
CONSTANTINOPLE, Oct. 5 (By
The Associated Press).?Abruptly,
though not unexpectedly, tho iM-j
dania conference came to a halt thin
afternoon. When it will be icsunied
is a matter of conjecture.
The question of the evacuation of
Thrace was the cause of the rupture,
it was announced late to-night. The
attitude of the Turks and the Greeks
was very bellicose, threatening the
success of th--** conference.
Ismet Pasha, in a fiery mood, up?
set the conference to-day. lie de?
clared that the Turkish army must
enter Thrace Immediately, and his
tone was determined and defiant.
General Harington attempted to rea?
son with him after the fashion which
proved so effecttive in dealing with
minor preliminaries, but ismet was
adamant.
Brigadier General Harington, com?
mander of the Allied forces ai.d
head of the Allied delegation, re?
turned this evening on the battleship
Iron Duke, and tho Italian delega?
tion also came to Constantinople. It
is understood that the Allied gen?
erals will go into conference with
the high commissioners on certain
serious difficulties which have arisen
at Mudania.
Evacuation Issue P?al**ed
According to unofficial information,
Ismet Pasha, the Nationalist represen?
tative, suddenly raised the question
at the afternoon Conference of the
evacuation of Thrnce Gcr.c-al
Harington replied that that-would coma
after the conclusion of the penco
treaty, as set forth in tho joint allied ^
note. Ismet insisted heatedly on anm
earlier evacuation, and it was found^
impossible to reach an agreement for
the present on this important point.
General M-ombclH, of Italy. .ju***-urted
General Harington, but the French
delegate, General Charpy, was non?
committal.
At this juncture M. Franklin-BopS
lon, the special French envoy, inter?
vened, declaring that he had been in?
structed by the French Govcririent to
support the Turkish demand. The dis?
cussion grew very warm and the aPled
generals adjourned to confer with tho
commissioners at. Constantinople.
General Charpy also returned to Con?
stantinople and he decian'd that the
conference had progressed Frttis'a?tor
ily, but that tho first hitch was caused
b" tho Tu**k'sh der*-r,d f:;r tvS oc-u*
pation of eastern Thrace before the
peace confert.-r.co. T?*e French renre
?p->t-fiv<?** wprs c:T",'?-"*Tr"i bv their
government to concede this point, but
tue drit.sii and Italian delegates lacked
the necessary authority.
New Instructions Asked
Both General H.irington and Gcnersl
Mombclli have asked for further in?
structions from their Governments. If
these are received in time it is nosvb'e
that the conference may be resumed
at Mudania to-morrow afternoon.
LONDOW Oc?*. 5 (By Th.? Associated
Press).?The Mudania confe)ence has
separated, not finally, but in circum
stai'ces of serious difflnultv. ?'lT' im?
portant dispatch from General Haring
ning. It was sent by ship's radio and
stated, with reference to Tnur_da :?
proceedings, that tho conference had
adjourned, and asked for instructions.
Cabinet Hastily Summoned
The dispatch arrived in a very Im?
perfect state, the conclusion of it be?
ing altogether missing. It was suili
ciently obvious, however, that a ve**y
unsatisfactory state of thing-? had de?
veloped at Mudania, and the Prime
Minister hurriedly summoned a late
meeting of the Cabinet.
The ministers met at 11 o'clock, and
after a long and earnest discussion de?
cided that General Harington's dis?
patch was too mutilated to allow of
taking a final decision thereon. They
accordingly decided to send an ur<*"?nt
message to him at Constantinople,
whither he stated he had ?gone, ask -g
for a repetition of the dispatch a**d
requesting him to remain in Constanti?
nople pending receipt of further in?
structions. Tho Cabinet then sepa?
rated.
General Harington's repetitio*** Is e-*?
pocted to reach he-e rom? t*i*"> d*":-T"
the night, and if it does the ministers
will reassemble Friday morning to pre?
pare instructions. ?
Turks Blamed for Clash
Nothing has been announced officiary I
from Constantinople, but best informe?
sources there agree that t'ic difficulty
has arisen in consequence ci tho de?
mand of the Turks respecting the drte
for the evacuat'on of Const ?ntinoole.
Ismet Pasha, with M. Franklin-Bou?
illon's support, demanding evacuation
at an early date, while Gene-als Har?
ington and Mombelli r-'led that it
must follow the peace treaty.
There is nothing to substantiate tbe
report that the temporary ripture of
the conference waa in any way due to
the Greeks. .
At the afternoon meetings o? the
Cabinet the matter of the irrecon?
cilable attitude of the Kemnlists on
! certain material pointe was under con
; sideration. The Greek delegates were
to Join the Mudania conference to-dr.y,
