PEICE TWO CENTS. TURK YIELDS LAST POINT Complete Triumph Is Scored by the French. SULTAN GIVES UP ALL French Squadron Is Soon to Leave Mitylene STARTING A EUROPEAN SCARE Huniiiu. and Germany (onalder TIIOIII -■ elvea Mi^lit.-.J by the Kreuch. Paris, Xov. B.—France has scored a complete triumph in the Turkish dispute. The foreign office this morning received advices announcing that the sultan ha.s yielded to the entire demands formulated by the French government and only the question of form regarding the execution of the engagements remains to be settled. This may be done within the next twen ty-four hours, or, It is expected, at the latest, in two or three days. Then Ad miral Caillard will relinquish his occupa tion of the Island of Mitylene. An official note was Issued at 1 p. m. to-day to the effect that the porte had decided to yield to all the demands of France and that as soon as the sultan has issued an irade ratifying the decision, the French squadron will leave Mitylene. President Loubet presided to-day at the cabinet meeting. The foreign* minister, M. Delcasse, announced that the porte had just advised him that it had decided to give satisfaction in the case of the vari ous French demands, to which If. Delcasse replied that co soon a^ the sultan's order regarding the porte's decision was com municated to him Admiral Caillard's squadron would leave the island of Mity lene. The Temps prints a dispatch from Con stantinople to-day which says that the sultan, in accepting the French demands, firstly authorizes the working of the French schools, hitherto unrecognized; secondly, he recognizes officially the ex istence of the religious and hospitable in stitutions already founded, and accords them customs immunity and exemptien from certain taxes; and thirdly, he au thorizes the reconstruction of the schools and hospitable lntsitutions destroyed at Ihe time of the Armenian troubles. Tewflk Pasha, the Turkish foreign min ister, has announced that the recognition of the Chaldean patriarch, demanded by trance, already has been accorded. mark IHCUBATING <;♦-rinnn Hint* That British Interests Arv Urnvely < omiiroiniNed. London. Nov. B.—ln some quarters there is an endeavor to promote a scare over ihe dispute between France and Turkey. The Express says it is impossible not to conaect Lord Rosebery'B resolve to re enter public life with the descent by France upon Mitylene, while some of the Berlin papers consider France's action a direct challenge to England and a set-off to Fashoda. In the leading articles of Ihe principal journals in this country a trace of nervousness is certainly notice able, but not much serious attention is jaid to the hints from Germany that the interests of England are gravely compro mised. The view is that England is not likely to suffer should France insist upon Turkey fulfilling her legitimate obliga tions. FBBLIWG AROISED Geraumy and Rmaata ('onnider Them- delves Slig-ltted. 2i«v> Torh Sun Special Srrvie* Berlin, Nov. B.— German and Russian feeling has been aroused to an intense pitch by the action of France in seizing Turkish sorts in order to force a settle ment of French claims against Sultan Abdul Hamid's government. Germany is jealous. Russia is reported to be re joicing, but still views the situation with alarm and fear that affairs in the Bal kans and Turkey are rapidly tending toward a crisis that will demand the use of Russian soldiers to protect the czar's interests. Germany's pique is said to have been aroused by the failure of France In ad vance to notify the powers composing the triple alliance of the contemplated seiz ure of Turkish customs. All the other great powers, the German officials de clare, were no notified. This shows that France was inclined to deal unequally with the powers. Government officials say further that France has not addressed Germany on the subject even yet. though she has explained to other powers. TARIFF TALK Ways and Mean* Men See President Ruoftevelt. Washington, Nov. B.—Representative Serene Payne, chairman of the ways and means committee of the house and repub lican leader of that body, saw the presi dent again to-day in company with Rep resentative Steele, also a member of the committee. The meeting to-day followed a conference which they had with the president yesterday. The president dis ctused with them matters of reciprocity, revenue and tariff which may come before their committee at the approaching ses sion of congress, and yesterday read to them the portion of his message covering these subjects. Mr. Payne and some of his colleagues on the committee are very firmly opposed to tariff revision at this time, disagreeing entirely with the views or Mr. Babcock, who favors revision on certain lines.

COMING LEGISLATION President Studying the Philippine Tariff Question. DIAMOND DECISION TO PAVE WA? Uoud Shoninu of Inited •Slate-. In- It-runl (oiuLiertM- for Tliree it.urtliN of the Year, From The Journal Bureau, Boom €5, Pom Building. Watnington. Washington, Xov. B.—At an early date the United States supreme court will de cide whether the Philippine islands are a part of the United States in the sense that the govermmnt may not collect a tariff on ?or>&s brought from the islands to the United States. This is the ques tion involved in the "Fourteen Diamond Rings" case. It will determine the valid ity of the proclamation made by the pres ident imposing a tariff on the commerce between Manila and the United States after the signing of the treaty of Paris and before any legislation has been passed by congress. The fourteen diamond rings in con troversy were bi Vight to this country by Emil Pepke, an existed man in the First North Dakota volunteers. He served in Luzon and while there carried on a lit tle speculation in diamonds. He bought, several and others he secured from com rades who pawned them with him. Re turning with his regiment, July 31, IS9U, he was mustered out at the Presidio of San Francisco, and sent from there to his home in Wahpeton, N. D. He had the diamonds with him all this time, and at San Francisco he omitted to declare them or to pay any duty. He went from Wahpeton to Chicago, where, upon his arrival, one Tom H. Keefe, a customs officer, seized Mr. Pepke and his diamonds on the ground that the latter were smug gled. District Attorney Bethea brought suit in the district court of northern Il linois and the erfse was tried before Judge Christian C. Kohlsaat. The defendant claimed that the Philippines were a part of the United States and that under the constitution the government had no right to levy a duty on goods brought from one part of the United States to another part of the same. The court held that for the purpose of a tariff the Philippine archi pelago was foreign territory, and de clared the property forfeited in accord ance with the law governing smuggled goods. From this decision appeal was taken to ths supreme court. In the De Lima case, decided last spring, the supreme court held that con gress had authority to legislate for our territorial possessions, but it declared that the duties levied on merchandise brought to the United States from Porto Rico, between the date when the Paris treaty was signed and the Foraker act passed, were illegal, and they have since been refunded. Until the Spooner amend ment was passed there was no congres sional legislation touching the Philip pines, and the tariff was imposed by an autocratic decree of the president. It re mains to be seen whether the supreme court will find a difference between the Philippines and Porto Rico, permitting a tariff in the former while finding it ille gal in the latter. The main difference in the actual conditions lies in the fact that Porto Rico accepted our authority peace fully, while the Filipinos have been in open resistance which has amounted to a state of war. The Spooner amendment, passed just at the close of the last session, gives the president power to exercise through ap pointees judicial, civil and military func tions in the Philippines. This act has not yet come before the courts for ad judication as to its constitutionality. Many students of the constitution believe that congress has no right to make a wholesale delegation of its powers to the executive branch of the government, and that this act will be declared void. One of the principal tasks of congress this winter will be to legislate farther for the Philippines. The decision of the court in the fourteen diamond rings case may make legislation quite imperative. After the decision in the De Lima case President McKinley and Secretary Root revised their policy in regard to estab lishing civil government in the Philip pines. In the light of what the court said it was considered highly probable that it would hold that the civil governor of the Philippine archipelago had no au thority to establish tariffs. Therefore, the president, acting on Secretary Root's advice, continued the military govern ment there, making the civil regime trib utary to the military. The tariff is levied by virtue of the military authority and not by virtue of the delegation of au thority in the Spooner amendment. President Roosevelt has investigated this matter and will discuss it in his message. The expected decision in the fourteen diamond rings case will pave the way for congressional action, for it will decide in the first place whether the su preme court is going to hold that for tariff purpose the Philippines are foreign territory, and in the second place whether the president can continue the military regime indefinitely and govern the ter ritory by a power contained in a general delegation such as contained in the Spooner amendment. INTERNAL The Internal commerce of the United States dur- COMMERCE ing the first three quar ters of the commercial year is in many respects the most re markable in the history of the country's internal trade, while in some features there is a decline from the high tide of activity for the corresponding period of a year or two ago. The Monthly Summary of the Treasury Bureau of Statistics re ports that the trunk line movement of flour from Chicago points during four weeks of September reached an average of 90,842 barrels. For the first time in the year one week's grain movement fell be low a million bushels. The provision trade shows the highest weekly average of the year, being 31.19(3 tons per week. At the five chief live stock markets In the west the receipts for nine months end ing Sept. 30 were 5,236,356 cattle, 13,413, --669 hogs, and 5,331.155 sheep, aggregating 23,981,180 head of these three kinds, com pared with 22,239,071 head for the liko period of 1900. The season> receipts of five kinds of grain at Buffalo show that there has been FRIDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 8, 1901. '(tn^? '^> 1 ?^P^^ ** a considerable falling off compared with 1900 and 1899. The season's flour receipts, by lake, are still above those of 1899, though slightly below those of 1900. Ship ments by Erie canal from that point for the season to Sept. 30, 1901, were 11,993, --247 bushels, and for the season of 1900 to that date were 10,726,235 bushels. Canal shipments of five principal cereals have made some gain, while railway shipments of grain from elevators at Buffalo have fallen from 79.486,755 bushels for the first three-quarters of last year to 66,447,024 bushels this year. The number of boats cleared by canal this season to Sept. 30 has been 2,359, being the smallest number on record since 1885. The tonnage for the season to Sept. 30 was 2,445,747, cov ering the entire state system of canals. In the great lakes the shipments of -flour, coal, minerals, including ore, lum ber, logs and unclassified freight, were larger this September than last Septem ber. Grain shipments decreased from 17,598.487 bushels to 22,492,506 bushels The Sault Ste. Marie canals report 4,133, --056 tons of freight for September, 1901, and 3,411,453 tdns for September, 1900, au 1 having passed in both directions. The season's traffic is nearly half a million tons greater than last season's. Coastwise commerce at the port of Ta coma for September gives the smallest flour shipments during the four months since June. The lumber trade has shown a similar falling off to domestic destina tions, but a marked increase to foreign ports. At San Francisco the local flour movement has been substantially sta tionary for the past three months. The arrivals of wheat for September have ex ceeded the combined receipts of July, and August, and September barley re ceipts were twice the combined receipts for July and August. LABORING The most influential re publicans in congress are WITH THE bearing down on the president to get him to PRESIDENT, modify his tariff revision recommendation. They ask that in his message he refrain from urging reciprocity or revision. They argue that the results of the late election are an indication that the republican tide is running full and that this may be used as an excuse for leaving the tariff as it is. This was the mission which brought Senator Mark Hanna her for the first time since Roosevelt entered the White House. It is what brought Messrs. Grosvenor, Payne and Steele of the ways and means committee to call yesterday. Senator Hanna came on his own motion. He wired yesterday for an appointment. He was with the president for twenty minutes before the cabinet meeting and then remained to lunch. The president read his tariff recommendation to Rep resentative Steele of Indiana. Up to this time Roosevelt has been inclined to favor a recommendation along the lines of Me- Kinley's Buffalo speech. Hanna and the rest want to forget this utterance. —W. W. Jermane. BULGARIA BAD Deliberately Seeks to Prevent Negotiations With Miss Stone's Captors. Sofia, Bulgaria, Nov. B.—The govern ment last night caused the arrest of a man who was visiting United States Con sul-General Dickinson and searched him, presumably thinking he was an emissary of the brigands and expecting to seize a communication from or to Miss Ellen Stone, the American missionary. The man was subsequently released. This ac tion of the authorities was seemingly a deliberate atempt to frighten delegates who might visit Mr. Dickinson and thus prevent negotiations from taking place in Bulgarian territory. The attitude of the authorities hampers Mr. Dickinson, as the brigands refuse to treat in Turkey. Mr. Dickinson, in his reply to Miss Stone's letter, urged the brigands to re duce still further their demands and ac cept the amount subscribed, in view of the determination of the government not to contribute towards the ransom and the impossibility of collecting further sub scriptions. It is believed the brigands will agre to this, as they are now begin ning to feel hard pressed and want money for current expenses, such as brib ery of officials, peasants and others. The letter Insists that the surrender of the prisoners must precede or be simultane ous with the payment, but leaves the question of the place open. A mesenger last night brought a letter from Miss Stone, written in English. All the orevious communications from her have been in Bulgarian. The letter says she is still well and gives valuable in formation about her captors and other circumstances which Miss Stone was de barred from sending in Bulgarian. NICE FOR DAVE HILL.

ADVANCE IN GASOLENE FIXNY STORY OP ROCKEFELLER Every Time He Rode nn Automobile With John Brialin Walker Price* Went tp. Special to The Journal. New York, Nov. 8. —At the automobile show John Brisbin Walker told face tiously a story of inviting his neighbor, John D. Rockefeller, to take * ride. Mr. Rockefeller was enthusiastic and the next week the price of gasoline went from 7 cents to 9 cents. A little later he* invited Mr. Rockefeller out again and the next week gasoline went up to 11 cents. After another trip there was another jump and gasoiine now is 15 cents. He said he now goes around the corner when he sees Mr. Rockefeller for fear of send ing up the price of gasoline. In reply to this Mr. McGowan, of the Standard Oil company, said that the sup ply of the 76 test gasoline demanded for motors was limited and that the increased demand was the cause of the higher prices. He warned the members that Standard Oil company there was a limit even with the great facilities of the to the supply of the 76 test oil and ad vised that the makers should contrive a burner that would make possible the use of a lower grade. MURDER DONE Joseph Middleworth Shot by an Old Enemy at Cen terville, S. D. Special to The Journal. Yankton, S. D., Nov.

NORMAL CASE IS IN COURT Quo Warranto Proceedings Against Control Board. POINTS WERE MIXED The Case Is Simplified by Normal Board's Demurrer. MR. RICHARDSON'S ANSWER FILED It Goes to Great Length in Trying to Show Normal School* a« Char itable Institution*. Questions of fact and questions of law were mixed in such confusion to-day in the normal school board's quo warranto proceedings against the board of control, that there seemed a remote prospect of settlement by the supreme court. The case was set for argument this morning, but the time was taken with ar gument of the case of the city of Du luth against the Duluth Telephone com pany, and the quo warranto case was not reached until 1:30 p. m. Harrln Richardaon'a Contention. Harris Richardson, atorney for the board of control, filed a voluminous an swer this morning, setting up the claim that the normal schools are charitable in stitutions. He also brought in the his tory of the normal schools, alleging their deficits as reasons for the board of con trol's assumption of authority. This brought into the suit numerous side isues, the attorney for the normal board, to get the case pared down to the point of constitutionality of the law, of fered to dismiss all the pleadings and en ter into a stipulation, agreeing that the board of control has attempted to exercise authority over the normal schools. This, Mr. Richardson refused to do, and the following demurrer was therefore filed: Now come the relators and demur to the answer of the respondents In the above enti tled proceeding, containing new matter, be cause upon its face it does not constitute a defense. —Lafayette French, Childs, Edgerton & Wlckwire, Attorneys for relators. W. B. Douglas, Attorney General. The demurrer has the effect of admit ting all facts that are well-pleaded, but denies the conclusions of law. It there fore brings the question down to its legal aspects. Control Board's Answer. The answer filed by Mr. Richardsoi goes much into details. Attention is called to the fact that chapter 122, Laws of 1901, specifically pro vides that the board of control shall have and exercise full authority in all finan cial matters of the state university, the state normal school, the state public school, and the schools for the deaf and blind. It also provides that the board of con 4rol shall disburse all public moneys of the several Institutions named «.nd shall have? the same authority in th» expendi ture of public moneys appropriated there for as in the other institutions named in said act, except in the matter of bequests to the educational institutions, which shall apply to the institutions as pro vided by the terms of the gift or bequest. After detailing the provisions of the law as to the duties of the board of con trol, the answer alleges that the state normal schools are and ever have been charitable institutions; that the first three normal schools were established by chapter 79, laws of 1858, for the free education and preparation of teachers for teaching in the public schools of the state; that by the terms of that act $5,000 was appropriated for the use of each school, but the $5,000 for each school could not be made available until there had been donated to the state of Minne sota for that particular school $5,000 in money and lands, or $5,000 in money for the erection of necessary buildings and the support of professors and teachers. Other conditions were attached, among them that the schools should be located in healthful localities and convenient to the use of the public schools; that stu dents should engage to become teachers in the public schools for a given length of time. Glfta to Normal Schools. Under these circumstances many chari tably disposed persons donated over 200 acres of land In Winona county, and over twenty-eight platted lots in Winona, upon condition that the first normal school be located there. In addition to this other charitably inclined persons gave from $50 to $600 each in money to the- institution, and many other charitable persons do nated books to the number of nearly 1,700 volumes, with maps, etc., to the Winona school. The city of Winona donated $15,000 for the use of the school in the free education of teachers. When the second normal school was es tablished at Mankato in 1866, the citi zens donated $5,000 in money and a large amount of valuable land. Similar dona tions were made at St. Cloud and at Moor head. S. G. Comstock, being charitably inclined, donated a large tract of land to be used as a site for the fourth normal school located at that place. At Du luth, too, the citizens donated a tract of very valuable land for the fifth normal school. In further support of the theory that the normal schools are charitable insti tutions, it is cited that prior to 1886, over 3,000 books had been donated to the nor mal schools, then in existence. Then the answer goes into appropria tions, and shows that aside from sums donated for buildings, etc., by the state, there had been appropriated up to July 31, 1901, inclusive, the sum of $1,982,211.04 for the support of the schools; that there has been appropriated for the year ending July 31, 1902, the further sum of $137 000 making a total of $2,119,211.04, for support! In addition to this, the state has ex pended for normal school buildings and equipment, in addition to the funds cre ated by private benevolence, $794,631, making a total appropriation, aside from private contributions, to Aug. 1, 1901 for said schools, $2,776,204.04. There ' has been appropriated and subject to future disbursements for buildings and equip ment, the further sum of $11,302.36. Add ed to this, the sum of $137,000 for support, which is to be disbursed during the ensu- <o »tiniied on Second Page. Russo-Japanese Alliance Tokio, Nov. 8. —The leading Japanese Journals have been earnestly discussing the overtures in Russian newspapers looking toward a Russian alliance with Japan. The proposed basis of the arrangement is that the Tokio government refrain from all measures impeding Russia in Manchuria. Russia, in return, would pledge heraelf to leave a free hand to Japan in Korea, but Russia should be allowed to appropriate a convenient naval station in southern Korea. None of the Japanese Journals ap prove the idea, the papers objecting that two powers cannot divide supremacy la the far east. They also interpret the proposal as pointing to the permanent absorption, of Manchuria by Russia. Japan wants Korea to remain Korean, but also wants the world to recognize that Japan's interests there are too vital to allow her to remiia an inactive spectator oX Korea's absorption by another power. MM HUNT IN SOUTHWEST Search for Escaped Leaven worth Prison Convicts. 26 DESPERATE MEN Mounted Guards, Former Plainsmen Giving Pursuit. CAPTURE OR KILLING IN SIGHT Desperadoea Making for Indian Ter« rltory and Committing Depre dations on the War, I Leavenworth, Kan., Nov. B.—Forty mounted guards are beating the country for a radius of five miles around the fed eral penitentiary at Fort Leavenworth in search of the twenty-six escaped con victs. The country is wild and rough and affords ample opportunity for escape, and as all the convicts are desperate men and armed, conflicts will doubtless result be fore they are captured. It is believed that many of the fleeing convicts received wounds from the bullets sent after them by pursuing guards. The dead: QUINX FORT, a desperate criminal from the Indian territory who is believed to have been the ringleader of the outbreak. Wounded: Joseph B. Waldrupe, prison guard, shot la forehead and breast; condition still critical. Arthur Trelford, captain of the guard, shot in leg; not serious. C. E. Burrows, guard, shot in neck; slight, Andrew Leonard, g-uard, leg broken. The mutiny was hatched several months ago, but men had never found a favorable time to carry It into effect until yester day. As the better behaved prisoner* are used in the outside work the con spiracy was hatched among the men in the inside gangs. The convicts chose tha most favorable moment of the day, while many of the guards, acting as foremen of. construction of the new cell house, wera unarmed. Diamond Cut Diamond. Since last night the old prison has pre-« sented an air of activity that it has not known for years. As soon as the alarms were given, guards were formed in march ing order and mounted men, armed to tha teeth, were drawn up in front of the mala entrance. Most of the guards were old plainsmen and the diversion of hunting down criminals stirred their blood' as nothing else could have done. The es caped convicts were accounted among tha most desperate criminals of the south west and the guards started out on their hunt in full realization of this fact. The scene of mutiny, however, being some distance from the prison proper, the convicts had secured a good start and, aided by the rough, wooded country, they had, before darkness fell, placet} a good gap between themselves and their pursu ers. The guards, at best, could make but a desultory attempt at pursuit and were compelled to await daylight to take up the search. Depredation*. The alarms were sent in all directions, the officials of Kansas City, Atchison, St. Joseph, Topeka and Leavenworth being asked to keep the police on the lookout, and all night, in each of the cities, armed police and detectives patrolled the out skirts. During the night reports came in from all directions of thefts of horses and vehicles, clothing and food by the convicts and as the report that the convicts were at large spread, citizens in the outlying districts became terror-stricken and barred their houses. Bright and early this morning an in* creased number of guards, well armed anij mounted, were started out from the peni-» tentiary, and to-day was spent in as ex-« citing a man hunt, perhaps, as has been experienced in this part of the country; since the border days. It is believed that all the convicts will ultimately be captured, if not overtaken by the guards end shot. Bach prisoner has undergone an examination under tha Bertilllon system and to-day these de scriptions were mailed to every chief of police in the country. Headed for Indian Territory. Advices received at the prison indicate that the convicts are making for the In dian Territory, a hundred miles south, at breakneck speed. Warden McClaughry Is making every effort to head them off be fore they reach the Kansas river. He started telegraphing- last night to get sheriffs aad other officers to guard the bridges. Answering telegrams received to-day from the neighborhood of Linwood, Kan., and several other points, say farm ers, well armed, are watching the bridges. The reports show that the convicts are securin-g farmers' horses and running them at a high speed until the animals give out and then pressing in fresh ones whenever found. By making these relays they are trying to outride the officers to the territory. Nothing but guards and civil officers out for 'the $60,000 rewards are now in the chase. The soldiers are keeping a watch over the reservation. All work is sus pended and the convicts held in cells so that the guards can take up the hunt. Will MeOlaughry, with a force of trusties, is running off pictures of the convicts at large. Two hundred sets will be mailed out by to-night to different chiefs of po lice.
