Among these are the following: "l'irst The National Lamp Company and all its subsidiary companiei are ordered to is dissolved ami the General Electric Company is forbidden hereafter to conduct any business in the manu facture or sale of electric lamps except in its own name.

Cholera has developed at Tripoli, and according to a report that ' has just reached here there have Iveen four deaths LONDON. Ort.

Arabs 'and Kodifs. who were recently called up j They took with them thirty pieces of can i non, including twelve modern quick i firing Krupp field pie es and six similar mountain guns. I Before leaving the Turks distributed .HUKm stands of arms. Tho rifles were modern Mausers and were given to the local Arabs. The Italians have collected 3.ikki of the rifles. The main Turkish force is twelve hours march inland, where Munir is trying to negotiate with a powerful Berber tribe to defend theGhnrian line of hills against the Italian advance "This is Italian information." concludes the '"imrs correspondent. "My own is that Munir and his officers after a council of war determined that resistance was futile The question is whether they will surrender or try to reach the frontier. Various correspondents at Constanti nople and other places in Turkey, using devious ways in order to escape the cen sorship, have managed to get telegrams out of the country, and nearly all of these dwell on the gravity of the inter nal situation. A despatch to the MtU of Vienna says the Young Turks at Salon ica are planning a coup According to their programme they will march on Constantinople, form a committee of public safety similar to that in F'rance during the Revolution, expel all Italians from the OOUOtfy, con fiscate property and call the reservists and volunteers to the colors A despatch to the l'aris PttU Paruien says the commander of the army corps at Balonioa has telegraphed Said Pashi. the Grand Vilier, that they will march on Constantinople if he dares to make saee with Italy A despatch to the Exchange Telegraph Company says that when the Turkish Par liament reassembles on October 11 there will Ih a severe conflict between the Com mittee of Union and Progress i Young Turksi and t he reactionaries The people are greatly excited A man who is bitterly opposed to the action of the Young Turks tried unsuccessfully last night lo burn the buiidmg ol the committee al Btamboul.

Mr. Bennett regretted tha! he could only see the lighta of the town, e-ime of which gave him a hint of the architectural heights that he had heard and read to much about and which darkness concealed from him as the ship came up to her pier. He swapped interviews with the ship news reporters, talking so rapidly that at times he almost clogged his enuncia tion. He said he felt somewhat American ized, as he had bought of the big American store in London a ready made American suit. Hesaid he "reckoned" there was not much difference between the cost of the American made and an English made suit, and later justified the use of "reckon" on the ground that it was a good Shake spearian word Mr. Bennett's ready made suit fitted well and lie seemed quite proud of it. He said lie had not leen assigned as a reporter P' w rite Ins impressions He was distinctly under no orders as to what he should write, he was told that lie would have an absolutely free hand and that s why he accepted the work.

Oct 1; Krancisco Ma dero gave further proof of his concilia tory policy yesterday in a conversation with Hodolfo Heyes. a son of den. Ber nardo Beyes. Madero expressed the wish that Qen, Beyes would return to Menco and promised him all guarantees. While it Is not believed that Madero's expressed wish will be gratified by the return of Ueyes. it will serve to increase the popularity of the new President as convincing evidence of his desire for fair play. Madero denied the report published here to-day in a despatch from Wash ington saving that before his inauguration he would visit the United States. Kletitors chosen at the primaries on October 1 had their tirst meeting to-day and are nrrunging the preliminaries for their descent upon Mexico city on Sunday, Octobei is. when the queetlon of Preii dent and Vice President of the republic will be let tied. It is not believed that there is anv doubt of the election of Ma dero of court e, but there is much specu lation as to the outcome of the rnce for Vlee-P esident While the electors an theoretically bound by tha votes of their constituents still they are practically permitted to vote foi any candidate they may deain to suppor, . Friends of all three candidates for the Vice-Presidency claim the election Sun day will decide the matter definitely The session of electors will resemble that of the electors in the United States except that the balloting will be secret and a candidate must have more than ,Vi per cent, of the votes to win. If the question is not decided by the electors it goes immediately to Congress, who will choose a Vice-President. It was accepted as certain a week ago thai Congress would choose Pe la Barra but as he does not desire the position, it is probable that Madero's wishes will be granted and Sunrez lie elected. &Thero was a torchlight parade to-night in honor of le la Burrs it was par ticipated in by hundreds of all classes.
