Iaj.ndo.s. Oct, 2. War has not begun
In the Balkans, but It looks to be peril
ously near. A despatch which It Is
alleged left Bdlla nt 1 A. M., asserts
that tho allied Hallian States havo sent
un ultimatum to Turkey demanding re
forms In Macedonia nnd Adrlnnoplo nnd
demanding nn answer within forty
eight hours. This news needs confirma
tion, but If It Is true war Is practically
Inevitable, as Turkey never yields to
menaces. Her decision to mobilize ns
announced yesterday shows Tier readi
ness to make good the statement of one
of her Ministers that she has not sought
war, but Is determined to meet nny at
tack. All the news from Hnlkan centres
tells of energetic preparations to take
the Meld regardless of the cost It
would stem, therefore, that whatever
hope, exists of preventing war depends
upon the ability of the great Powers to
materialize their declared wishes for
peace. Russia, France, Ureal Hrltnln,
Germany and Aus.rla are i-i porteil to be
acting ln accord to prevent a clash. Tho
activities of M. S.izonolT. the P.ussUn
Minister of Foreign Affairs, and Count
von Herchtold, the Austrian Foreign
Secretary, are most mentioned, being
the ones most nearly concerned, but
other Foreign Oltlces are clearly busy In
the same direction.
Sir (lerard Auguslus I.ovvther, the
British Ambassador at Constantinople,
called at tho Porte yesterduy and tho
Turkish Foreign Minister left the Cabi
net session and hsd u two hours con
ference with him.
A seml-otllclal statemetH us to the
conference at Balmoral between the
King. Sir lidwatd (Ircy and M Snzonoff
shows that the Balkan situation was
discussed to a considerable extent and
friendly cooperation with the other j
Powers to keep the Stages unlet was de-
termlned upon. Sir F.dward Grey, the
Foreign Minister, will remain ut Bal
moral for the present
The Austtktu Ambassador to Great
Britain went to Balmoral esterday.
M Paonoff goes to Paris to-day. Thence
he will go to Berlin, and afterward
start home.
Apart from the chancelleries, the.
general opinion In Kurops Inclines to
the pessimism which depressed all the
boutses yesterday, but hope of peace
has not yet been abandoned.
The entire Turkish army Is mobiliz
ing, according to a despatch from Con
stantinople received here last night.
The Turglsh Cabinet had an eight
hour session, marked with much wran-,
gllmr before It reached the decision to j
mobilize the armv The Cabinet further
reached the decision to detain all Greek,
ships In Turkish waters for their own I
use as transports.
There Is nn unconfirmed rumor that ,
art of the troops are destined fur the
Itusslan frontier. Another report has It
that the Government will arm the Al- '
banians on condition that they hold
back the Muntenegi Ins und Sfrvlans In
the event of war. I

capital is peaceful. Theie are nouo 1

As a matter of fact the new election

The opinion wns frilly expressed thnt
It Is regrettable that tho Governor by
eomo method, direct or otherwise, does
not take himself out of thn situation.
The Governor's ofilco holders nre the
only men who desire his renomlna

Interesting, If not downright personal.

The publication of their Interviews led
to many humorous comments, it is not
necessary to go further on this lino,
though, for the reason that the very
general comment wns made that thn
Governor's office holders only empha
sized by their Interviews a distinctly
acute humiliating position for the Gov
