Are Favorable.

Budapest, Nov. 15. As all tho great
Powers am unanimous to proclaim the
autonomy of Albania and as no great
Power is ready to espouse Scrvia's
quarrel against Austria, the peace
prospects are. most favorable.
I am authorized to state that the
King of Montenegro's reply to Austria's
protests is interpreted indulgently
here. The allies may occupy the
Adriatic coast during the war, but they
must evacuate subsequently.
Russia's beneficent action, .which
moved Turkey to sue for peace, is also
lessening the Austro-Serviandifferences.
The MinRcstion that Constantinople,
liile remaining as the Turkish capital,
riiould nlho be under international con
trol is gaining ground.
No oflicial reply has yet been received
from Belgrade to the definition of Aus
tria's attitude on Albania and an Adri
atic port in relation to Servia's inten
tions. Neither has tho Servian Min
ister who lain the plans of his Govern
ment before the Vienna Cabinet received
any communication from Count von
Berchtold, the Austrian Foreign Min
ister. It seems though that Servia is resolved
at all costs to push her troops under
Gen. Zivkovitch to tho Adriatic snore.
Jf so, this makes no difference whatever.
Austro-Scrvian relations will only be
more painful. Servia will withdraw
her troops from the occupied places
when the war is over. Austria would
seem pleased to spare her neighbor this
humiliation, but recognizes readily
that Servia is the best judge of the ex
tent, geographical and military, of her
war operations and also of the degree
of good grace with which she will assent
to a political settlement or which all
Kuropc positively approves. One half
ftrongly advises her to resign herself,
the second half says that Servia would
do well to remember that although
a solace for Durazzo has been unoffici
ally dangled before her eyes In tho shape
of a commeroial outlet on the Adriatic,
this has pot been promised by Austria
and will in no case be bestowed as a
mnttor of course, but only if Scrvia's
dispositions to this country aro friendly,
enough to justify such a spontaneous
act of friendship.
I am further able to state that the
Kharp reply given by tho King of Monte
negro to the Austrian protest regarding
Allessio and San Giovanni di Mcdua
is likewise interpreted in official circles
in tho light of psychological circum
stances of extenuating character.
The utmost consideration is felt and
f-hown hero toward both branches of
the Servian people, whose fervent
desire to cut a way to tho Adriatio is
natural, patriotic, irrepressible and
imperative necessity. Thwarting the
project is felt to bo a painful duty and
will bo carried out with the utmost for
bearance. Th Russian benoficont influence on
Stvis, whoso interests sho isendcavor
i'lg to further by pacifio and therefore,
most eflidcnt means, is one of tho most
hopeful elements in the situation.

Washington, Nov. 15. Senator Isldor

a critical condition since yesterday nnd
gradually growing weaker. All hope of

Orders Issued for the Trans
fer of Nearly Twelve Hun
dred Officers.
Washington, Nov. 15. Orders for the
transfer of nearly 1.200 officers of the
army have been prepared at the War
Department, and their Issuance was be
gun to-day. This Inaugurates the
greatest shakeup ever known In the his.
tory of the United States military ser
vice, especially as all changes of posts
of the officers concerned must have been
accomplished by December IB.
Tho general shifting Is due to legis
lation enacted at the last jesIon of
Congress. A drastic provision wb-s In
serted In the army appropriation bill, re
quiring nil officers who nnd not spent nt
least two years out of tho last six on
duty with troops to be with their
regiments not later than December 15.
After careful scrutiny of this pro
vision It was found that the law In
cluded us detached service such duties
as military attaches, regimental staff of
ficers, students at service schools, In
structors at West Point and the ser
vice schools and officers attending for
eign military schools, officer on duty
with militia In the various States and
serving at educational Institutions.
With this Interpretation of the law
585 officers were found who had to be
transferred In order that the Secretary
of War might comply with the law. To
take their places 685 more had tn he
I moved, making a total of 1.170 officers
affected by the upheaval.
The estimated cost of this quick shift
Is from 150,000 tn $100,000 for travel
expenses alone. In addition It Is felt
that the forced shifting will work harm,
especially at the schools, where the
plans for the year's work have been In
terfered with.

and other command are being held at
their armories In readiness to proceed
there to prevent rioting In the lumber
lockout and atrlke.
The American Lumber Company oper
ates the Merryvlllo plants. Two days
ago 1,300 employees were. locked out,
the reason assigned being that the com
pany feared trouble with Its operatives.
Simultaneously the men declared a
strike. The cause of tho clash Is the
company's refusal to reinstate six men
Implicated In the fatal Grabow riots.
The company announced that It would
employ non-union men and would have
no further dealings with the Brother
hood of Timber Workers.
President A. L. Kmerson of the tim

to have taken personal charge of the

Tho young mm who told tho story

The burglary was at 781 Broadway and
entrance was effected by blowing a hole
with dynamite through the wall sepa
rating the- two buildings. This was on

Gas Filled Itoom Tells Husband
Story of Wife's Plan to
Kill All Three.
Leon Ralces, who owns a news stand
In n downtown office building, returned
to his home, 372 Hast Twelfth street,
Klalbush, last evening to find his wife,
Annie, his daughter, Florence, 14 years
old. and his son, Sidney, 12, lying on a
bed In n room filled with gas. The son
and daughter were dead and the wife Is
dying at the Kings County Hospital.
Investigation has convinced the au
thorities that Mrs. Ralces, determined to
take her own life, was equally deter
mined her children should die with her.
She was despondent because of an ail
ment which had compelled her to sub
mit to several operations and constantly
dtclurcd that sho was a burden to her
family. The mystery still to be cleared
Is whether she prevailed upon her chil
dren to commit suicide with her or
drugged them after persuading them to
lie down In bed with her to keep her
company. Ralces does not believe his
happy, healthy youngsters' would have
agreed to die with their mother.
Florence, the daughter, was a pupil
at the Erasmus High School nnd her
brother was In an upper grade of Pub
lic School 135.
Ralce said that slnneTTTS Wife was
told she must go through with another
surgical ordeal she had been most des
pondent. In her former Illnesses she
had required so much attention that
he had been compelled to give up busi
ness for a time and she feared that
would be necessary again. She talked
of it and although everything was done
ro comfort her she would not be con
soled. Mrs. Ralce was found wandering
about the apartment at 3 o'clock yester
day morning by her husband, moaning
and walling. She was persuaded to re
turn to her bed and at 7 o'clock yester
day morning when her husband left the
fiat she appurently was In a happier
mood. The children were then asleep
and he did not disturb them as he kissed
them good-by.
As Ralce opened the door of his apart
ment last night an overpowering rush of
gas made him shout In nlarm. That
brought Daniel Bryers, a neighbor. The
two men, after throwing open all win
dows, rushed back to the wife's bed
room, where the wife, son and daughter
were lying. All were In their night
clothes. Two gas Jets were turned
on full. Dr. Rynd of the Kings County
Hospital found a spark of life In the
wife, but the boy and girl had been
dead for some hours.
There were no signs of resistance or
struggle and the police could not find
any phial or glass which might have
contained a drug. '
Gas Inspectqrs said the two burners
must have been going since about noon.

Go Back to Head Secret
Investigators Feel That It's
Part of a Plan to Hamper
Their Work.
William J. Flynn. chief of the secret
service for the district about New York
and now head f the Investigators for
the Curran Atdermanlc committee, will
resign from hla. place on the staff of
the committee on Monday next, and on
Wednesday, November 20, will succeed
Chief Wllklc nt the head of the secret
service of the L'nlted States, with head
quarters In Washington.
It was reported at about the time he
1ecame associated with the Curran com
mittee that Chief Flynn was likely to
succeed Chief Wllkle, who was Consid
ering retirement. Mr. Flynn, however,
accepted the Curran committee's offer
and obtained leave of absence from the
Government, aB he had done when he
was second Deputy Police Commissioner.
It was expected that he would be ab
sent from his secret service post about
four months. His connection with the
Curran committee has actually occu
pied about three months.
The statement that Mr. Flynn was
to resign his place with the committee
came from Washington last night. It
was understood there that troubles over
the payment of salary and expenses
were behind the roagnatlon.
The amount now owing him In con
nection with his work for the city Mr.
Flynn last night placed at well over
$2,000. The city has paid him, he said,
$S00, one month's salary. The amount
now due Includes the second and third
month's salary and $600 or $700 ex
penses, which Mr. Flynn already has
paid jut .of his own pocket..
The blil Is being held up, necorllng
to Emory R. Buckner, counsel for the
committee, by the Mayor. There was
an Item of about ( ' for payments to
persons whose name were not given,
as It was not dcemea best to make
them public. The Wll was paaned by
the Comptroller, Mt Buckner said, but
was referred to the Corporation Coun
el for the Mayor with regard to the
$200 Item because of tc lack of name.
The Corporation Coun t ho not yet
rendered his decision, and meanwhile
the whole bill Is belli held up. Chair
man Curran confrreit with Orporn
tlon Counsel Watson about It, and sug
gested that the rest of the bill, about
which no question has been raised ho
far as is known, be paid. But the bill
Is still held up.
Mr. Buckner said last night that Chief
Flynn had taken tho posUJoa with the
committee with the undn standing that
If he were called upon to go to Wash
ington as head of the sneiet service he
might terminate his connection with the
committee at any time the call came.
It has not yet been decided who will
take his place at the hvad of the com
mittee's force of investigators.
The holding up of the Flynn bill Is
taken thy the majority members of the
Curran committee ns intended to ob
struct their work or at least to annoy
them. They have felt before that
Mayor Gaynor was not giving them his
support, nnd they point to the resigna
tion of Chief Flynn. brought about
partly at least by the tact that he has
received no money for the past two
months, although he has had to pay
out money all the time, as evidence of
the attitude of the Mayor toward the
Mr. Flynn has said he did not feel
that he could afford to go on paying his
own money for the Investigation with
no return nnd has based his resignation
at this particular time on that ground.
At the last session of Congress the
salary of chief of tho secret service was
reduced $400 for the sake of economy1.
John 13. Wllkle was advanced some time
ago to be supervising agent In charge
of tpeclal agents of the customs force
and the post of chief of the secret ser
vice has been vacant, although Chief
Wllkle has continued to supervise the
work of the Bcrvlce. Secretary Mat
Veagh has not Intended to appoint a
successor, Washington despatches say,
until this salary question Is cleared up.
If Mr. Flynn receives tho appointment
now It will he at the reduced salary.

President-EIect Says He Will
Summon Congress by
April 15.
He Believes Uncertainty Over
Tariff Revision Should
JSp Removed.
Cutting of Schedules to Be
Gradual to Protect
Governor to Have Few Weeks
of Absolute Quiet At
Classmates' Dinner.
President-elect Woodrow Wilson laat
night Issued this statement:
"I shall call Congress together In
extraordinary session not later than
April 15. I shall do this not only
because I tnlnk that the pledges of
the party ought to be redeemed as
promptly as .possible, but also be
cause I know it to be in the interest
of business that all uncertainty' as
to, what tho particular items of
tariff revision are to be should be
removed as soon as possible."
Mr. Wilson has been urged to this
course sino his election by the leaden
of his party, by Senators and Represen
tatives la Congress and by the busl-
ncss men of the country.
Since the tM.lt of November he has
had' laid beftrc him the views of many
men whose opinions bear weight In thy
consideration ot a question of such im
portance. Not all of this mass of
opinion has been of the same tenor,
but the consensus of views haa bten lu
favor of Immediate action.
While the platform adopted at Bal
timore declared that the Democratic
party believes that any other tariff
than one designed for revenue pur
poses Is unconstitutional, cognizance
was taken of the fact that a policy ot
protection has so Ingrained Itself into
the commercial Interests of this coun
try that It would be unwise to attempt
anything more than a gradual elimina
tion of the duties considered obnoxious.
The demand that this gradual reduction
be Instituted Immediately was neverthe
less unequivocal.
i DurlnK his campaign Gov. Wilson re-
j peatedly elaborated his view of the tariff
, problem as he had outlined It la his
speech or acceptance.
Illah Tar I IT Crampa Trnde.
He touched upon the Inequalities of
opportunity which ho believed wers
fathered by what he descrlbd as tlx
"excessive protective policy" ot the He
I publican party, declared that this policy.
far from enlarging the field of Ameri
can endeavor, really cramped It nnd at
railed with vigor die time honored argu
ment that a l.Igh tariff meant hl;li
, wages.
He Insisted that the removal of ihitlva
known to lie excessive woulj liRve'lj
rffect of putting the American niuuulli-
turer on his mettle and that the touV
I try would presently cee an extension oK
litH foreign business such as It '.iail nut It
I known.
Notwithstanding bis frankly twprcsseJ
opposition to the tariff schedules as the
now stand Gov, Wilson never forgot th t
admonition of his platform that .i
scheme of business so deeply rooted
could not be dispensed with In a day.
During the last weeks of his cam
paign, when those opposing him wcrjs
nppeullng tn the country on the ground
that his policy meant financial ruin, hi'
raid again and again that there were
as many men In his party as in any
other that were benefiting by a protect
ive policy and that no one could believe
that these men Intended to commit
economic suicide.
He said his attitude toward the tariff
vtould be that of the surgeon who has
to perform a very serious operation. Hi
would remove whatever was unhealthy
In the tariff schedules without disturb
ing any fibre of natural growth.
After Suerlal Privilege.
He declared that the Democratic Con
gress would go through the schedules
with a fine tooth comb and would take
out of them anything that savored of
special privilege or unfairness.
When his election was assured he Is
sued a statement to the country In
which he advised those engaged In
legitimate business that they had noth
ing to fear from a Democratic admin
istration. At the same time he declared
to those abotit him that ho had not yet
made up his mind with respect to thn
calling of an extra session of Congress,
during which both Che tariff and the
monopoly questions might be con-
. ii
He expressed pleasure at the general
discussion of these problems and so- K
llclted the names ot some of the more
prominent men of hit party who had de
clared their views. Within a very few
day he came to the conclusion that
sentiment was strongly In favor of
action at an extraordinary session of
This sentiment was contributed to as
much by tihose who oppose tariff re
vision as by those who desire It. Ap
parently there was an accord In tho
view that something was to bo done nnd
that the sooner It was accomplished
the better for all concerned.
Beyond hi; bald statement tlmt he w!ll
call an extraordinary session the President-elect
has made, no comment oa. U
