Salonica. Oct. 2. -The ICommittee of
fninn and Progress has been In contlnu
oub session for twenty-four hours and It
now seems certain that an order will bo
issued by the Young Turks for the expul
sion of all Italians from Turkey in addition
to the placing of a boycott on all Italian
good.
The latter, owing to an order from the
Turkish custom officials, have already
been excluded from entry Into Turkey.
It is annoiinoed that the commander of
the Turkiah army corps at Adrianople
has received orders to be prepared to
move at a moment's notice, lieave of
absence has been denied to all officers.
l owsTANTDiopLm. Oct. 2. An official of
the Turkish Government said to-night
, that the Porte was pessimistic, aa it would
aeem that peace was to be purchased only
at the impossible price of complete Turk
iah surrender. He said that the replies
of the Powers to the last Turkish note
gave no hope whatever for intervention.
Said Pasha, who succeeded Hakki Bey
as Grand Vliier on the day Italy declared
war. has failed to complete his Ministry.
Kiamil Pasha, a former Premier and vet
eran Turkish statesman, has been sum
moned to the palace and asked to form
a Ministry.
The Turkiah officinl agency announced
at midnight that the Turkish fleet had
reached the Dardanelles in sxfety. It
state! that the naval commander did
not know that war had been declared.
The fleet waa on its way home from the
Levant. It consisted of two battle
ships, two cruisers and two torpedo boat
destroyers. All, it is said, are now safe
in the Dardanelles. i
Advices from the agent ofJLloyds in
the Dardanelles say that the ships are at
anchor off Magar
.Merchantmen attempting to pass the
Dardanelles at night will le fired upon.
A despatch from Venice says that a
Turkish Imrkentine was seized there
vwsterday. Leghorn reports that a Turkish
l ark lime laden from that port to Smyrna
has leen captured by the Italians.
A despatch from Salonica says that
three Italian cruisers accompanied by
two tnrpedo boats bombarded Prevesa
f long range yesterday, but their shells
did not reach the town. Prior to the
bombardlMBt the Italians at Prevesa
had destroyed two torpedo louta and
one small gunboat.
Word comes from Corfu that the Italians
lank a Turkish destroyer off Murto and .1
second on.- near tlnineritza.
Ml communication with Tripoli hus
Ceased and the town U lielieved to have
i cn i apturad.
It is reported that the Italians aftor
bombarding Prevesa landed 1,000 men to
garrison it. Two battalions of Turkish
troops retired to await three battalions
from Yanina, which arc believed to have
arrived there by now. I
Rumors hero conflict. Only this morn
ing it wa more or less officially given out
that all reports of bombardments of
Turkish porta by Italian fleets and of
Uval engagements between the warships
of i urkey and Italy are unfounded.
A Turkish sailing ship has ben stopped
tr. the Qulf of Salerno and lowed into the
port of Salerno, hre the crew is de
tained. The people and the newspapers here are
Wry much pleased and encouraged at the
fymiiathetic attitude of the foreign press
toward Turkey and the almost universal
Ot ndernnatlon of the Italian aggression.
It is hoped here that this outburst of
feeling will turn to Turkey's advantage
ar.d l.igrj tn intervention.
Meanwhile there is no slackening of en
thusiasm among th people in the resolu
tion to defend Turkey's honor, interests
and integrity to the bitter end. It is be
lieved ,n(lt ,n Government has deoided
OH an extensive mobilization of troop in
order to be prepared for eventualities.
OKITatrrillOPUl, Oot. 3. The Turkish
nswsnaper report that orders have been

Virnxa. Oct. 2. The Italian Ambassa
dor has been curtly Informed by the
Austrian authorities that should Italy
attempt to land troops in Albania
Austria will send warships to that coast
and regard Italy's action as unfriendly.
It is reported that the Italian Ambas
sador at St. Petersburg has been warned
hy the Russian Government that the
preaent conflict mint he confined to
Tripoli or otherwise Russia will take
drastic action. The Italian preaa is re -
ported aa furious at the reported Inter
ference on the part of Ruaaia and Austria
and now gravely asserts that Preveaa
was never bombarded, a statement which
la untrue.
The German Ambassador here, who waa
an optimist yesterday, la a pessimist to
day, lie finds that his oollegiios do not
approve of intervention in the near
future.
Despatches say that the French Ambas
sador to Turkey, who left Constantinople
for Pera to-night, remarked as he waa
leaving that France was always the last
scene of trouble.
St. PRTFRsnmo. Oct. 2 - It is reported
that Russia is prepared to hack Turkey

STRIKE MOBS SEIXE TRAINS.
Nervlce on the (leorgla and Florida Para
lyzed for Three Days.
AroraTA, Oa.. Oot. 2. -A state of
anarchy ex lots along the line of the Georgia
and Florida Railroad owing to the strike
of the firemen, which was declared last
week. General Manager Turner admits
that not a train has got through on the
system since last Saturday, and he declares
that under present conditions there is
little hope of resuming service.
The white firemen went out first because
trie road refused to increase wages and the
negro firemen struck In sympathy. From
the beginning the strike has been marked
by violence, whloh haa grown each day.
The burning of a trestle JOO yarda long
near Douglas on Sunday waa followed
to-day by the capture of two passenger
trains by armed mobs. With their guns
these mobs forced the engineers to take
the trains hack to Douglas, which is a
division point, and there sidetrack them.
The engineers and ot her t rain employees
were roughly handled by the mobs and
were threatened with death if they tried
again to take out trains.
An alarming feature of the situation
la that many people along the Una are in
sympathy with the strikers and are aid
ing in tying up traffic. The mobs whloh
held up the trains to-day were oom posed
of whites and negroea. The negroea are
more violent than the whites and declarel
that no trains shall run until the road
grants the demands of the negro fire
men. The passengers on the trains held up
were in a stale of terror when the trains
were forced back to-day . General Manager
Turner says the road is getting no pro
tection from the authorities along the
line, who ore afraid of Ihe mobs.
The Georgia and Florida operates sev
eral hundred miles of road, its southern
terminus being Madison, Fla. It is con
trolled by John Skelton Willlame of Rich
mond. Va.. who is prominent in the man
agement of the Seaboard Air Line.
Vice-Preaidont Tent of the Brotherhood
of Firemen eays it is a fact that there is
a complete lieup and thai people
along the line will not let non-union men
go on the engines.

sengers aboard the Atlantic Transport
liner Minnetonka, in yesterday from
Ixndon, which listened to a lecture in
advocacy of the right of women to vote

wagea for the same work done by men

1 in a complimentary speech and offer Mr.
I Phillips waa through Father Vaughan
; made a few remarks In which he declared
j that he did not admire the sort of woman
that the lecturer had depicted, in fact that
1 he was for the good old fashioned woman
who did not want any other right than
j those they had had for generations.
I Father Vaughan remarked also that Mr.
Phillips's lecture waa a good thing to
(Jettison.
His criticism was not relished by most
much warm discussion until the ship

Oct. 2. Cromwell
! DUMB, the aviator who mode Ihe first
j "osslng of the Kocky Mountains in an
J aeroplane, was killed here to-day.
! Hie machine was caught in a vertical
air current and dropped. Diion almost
righted it when he was within 100 feet
of the ground, but did not have time
to straighten out Imfore he struck.
Ten thousand persons, here for Ihe
Interstate Fair, saw him fall, and many
of them heard him shouting as he catne
down.
Diion. who was working for the Cur
tiss Eahibition Company, was under
contract to do three flights a day for the
amusement of Ihe crowds at the fair.
Ho started to go into the air at about
S o'clock for his first flight but his engine
balked. He tinkered at it and at Inst
got it into shape.
As soon as he left the field it was clear
that he waa having trouble with iiir cur
rents. The wind came in gusts and the
little biplane tilted crazily in tho treacher
ous eddies. Dixon gamely stuck at his
(ask and climbed well into Ihe sky.
The crowd thought he was merely doing
tricks with the machine and cheered his
cleverness. The people had no apprehen
sion that things were wrong until tho bi
plane made a sudden tilt and started to
slide towsrd Ihe earth. Those who
watched him closely saw that the lad was
almost thrown from his seal and was only
kept in it by his restraining straps.
Dixon worked herd to gel back control.
For a moment, when ho was not much
above the level of the fair flagpole, the
spectators thought that he waa going to
save himself. But another gust struck
him and his machine dropped.
Dixon himself knew that there waa no
hope. Harry Ormon. a mechanic at
tached to the Curtiss company, was
standing on the field near where he landed.
Dixon must have seen him and fearing
that Ormon was in the way shout d
"Here 1 go! Here I go!"
Ormon dodged and the machine dropped
in a heap within three steps of where he
had been standing. He ran to help Dixon.
There was little that could be done. Many
hones were broken and hia skull was
fractured. He waa taken to the emer
gency hospital, where he died an hour after
he fell. Hia body will probably be sent
to New York, where his mother lives.
It was said here to-night that probably
there will be legislation in Northwestern
States again exhibition flying. There
"have been manv accidents to aviators
at fairs and the people arc stirred be
cause of them.
Cromwell Dixon was IB years old Ela
waa the first aviator to fly over the Ho, ky
Mountains, besides being the youngest
licensed aviator in this country He re
ceived hia license from the Aero Club of
America on August 2 of this year
He was born in Columbus. Ohio He
once saw Capt Baldwin fly in a dirigible
balloon at the world's fair in St Louis
The boy went home and built a balloon
for himself which was thirty feet long
and eleven feet in diameter Lacking an
engine, young Dixon put in a bicycle
pedal arrangement attached to a chain,
or which he ran the propeller With this
machine he made man flights On one
ocoaaion he flew from St Louis across the
Mississippi River into Illinois and back
again, a distance of thirteen milea Later
on he Httmhed a motor to his balloon
and became very proficient in running
dirigibh s
Lest year he went to Waltham. Mass ,
and experimented with the Met. Com
pany, aeroplane makers He flew in a
meet that was held in that town. At the
Inst of August of this year he came to
Mineola and wanted to join Capt. Bald
win's school, but the Captain didn't have
any more planes and sent him to Diana
Curtiss The latter took hitn in. and after
flying around Nassau Boulevard for
several weeks Dixon went on the road
for the Curtiss Company, making flights i
His greatest flight was made last Satur
day, when he soared over the Kockies
It waa his last flight at the Montana State
Fair at Helena On his return he received
a purse of tlO.Otm made up by I mis V
Hill. John Mingling. I,ewis Penwell and
the State Fair
In this flight he covered more than
fifty miles and was gone from the fair
grounds an hour and fifty minute He
carried a letter which was handed to him
by Gov Morris to "The citizens of Hloss
burg, kindness of Cromwell Dixon. Curtiss
aeroplane service " Dixon delivered this
letter r.t Blesaburg rnd then returned
Dixon's mother and sister are living
at 635 W. 1S.M h st . in this city.
The sister is a vaudeville actress and the
mother travels with her. Dixon was once
a pupil of Miss E. A Todd, who run a
junior school of aeronatic in thj city,
He invented a mile a minute motorcycle
and a tent for housing dirigible balloons

Nurses as Waitresses Serve Food
to the Hungry Freaks of
Torrent's Power.
ArsTiN-. Pa.. Oct. J. -The laat estimate)
to-night indicates that not more than
100 persons went down under the flood
on Saturday.
To-day two census enumerator went
through the town from one end to the
other and they learned of juat eighty-five
persons who were not accounted for.
State Health Commissioner Dixon baaatt
his estimate upon the visits of theaa
officials to the houses of elghty-fouf
families.
In addition to the missing one, though,
it is certain that there were stranger)
in town. The hotels, and there war)
three of them, always had drummer)
in their lobbies, for the town of AuatlBl
was a good buying centre. Saturday
was market day too and the aidea of Ma ha
street were lined with wagons.
How many of theee outsiders are under
the tangled heap that mark the site of
Main street cannot be told. The town
had a very different look to-lay from Ite)
gray depression of yesterday. The sun
shone down upon the broken and torn
remnants and cheered the workers upon
the cleurage.
The list of dead according to the figurea
of Dr. Simmons includes twenty-threa
identified and three whoso names havenot
yet been learned. In one hone nine
Italians perished together. In another
thirteen Polaks, members of two famitlea
of which the lo ads were mill employee,
were drowned.
Something like organization came out
of the energetic but confused effort
of Sunday. A steam log roller grappled
at the high pile of splintered board
heaped in front of the Bank of Austin.
The nurs's, who have established a free
commissary for the destitute and work
men and constabulary, had the Odd Fel
lows Hull jammed full of a variety of
supplies. More than 2,0() persons were
f4sl to-day n cross the counters of the
nurses, who had turned themselves into
waitresst's, and this detail include! the
long line that received canned gooda
at one of Ihe side doors.
In the lodge rooms upstairs sat Dr.
Dixon with hia muny assistants planning
and revising tha campaign for caring
for the homeless and preventing an out
break of disense. It is the suhjec of
water supply with which tho authoritiea
have concerned themselves fo-day. Tho
town received its drinking water from
a number of springs and wells upon tha
hillsides above. Dr. Dixon has posted
notices through Austin warning tha
survivors not to use this water The
corps of engineers under Suite Sunitary
Engineer K. Herbert Know has been
tricing the supply of every house left
standing. It is feared that the contami
nation of tha flood waters may bring
u fresh disaster to the wrecked (own
A house across from th" authorities
headquarters ba bean made into a morgue
and all day Dr II. H Simmons has been
there receiving the bodies und checking
off their identification as they came in.
Justice of the Peace M N Johnson hag
sat there to take the sworn statement
of relatives mid to sign the burial cer-
t incatcs.
This afternoon the carriers of the
rough death litters came in with a baby a
body It was the 1 1 -month old daughter
of Dr. I, R. Mansuy, one of the town'a
physicians, who on Sunday found hia
wife's body in the ruins of their house.
When the physician went to the morgue
to make the positive identification Of hia
wife's body he wns certain at. flrat that
the disfigured face was not that of hia
wife. Then he lifted up her hand and
saw a ring that he had given to her. To
day the physician took his wife'a body
away for burial, so he wasn't there when
the baby's body waa found. He didn't
see, us did the nurses and doctor who
unwrapped the little sheet, that a small
red apple dropped from the baby's flngera
and rolled aero the floor.
To-day for the first time the 43on
stabulnry found that it had to deal with
vandals who poked among the ruinn
where a strict guard waa nit in force.
Light arrests were made and the prisoners
were arraigiiisl to-night before Justice
Johnson. They had to be locked up in
the schoolhouse, for the place where the
jail stood is swept clean.
