PRIGB TWO CENTS. FRIDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBER 4, 1903.
POWERS LAND TROOPS
AT CONSTANTINOPLE
Move Is Taken to Protect the Embassies
United States May Request Per
mission to Do Likewise.
A French Fleet Has Received Orders to Hold Itself in Readiness to Sail
for Turkish WatersAmerican Squadron Is Expected to Reach.
Beirut To-dayEnglish and R ussian Fleets Probably Will Be Sent
Also-The "Sick Man's" Illness Appears to Be Critical.
Washington, Sept. 4.Minister Lelshman to-day Informed the state depart-
partment that some of the European powers have landed marines In Constanti-
nople.
If the lives of Americans there become endangered the United States gov-
ernment also will send a detachment of marines to Constantinople.
Minister Lelshman also cabled that, owing to the disturbed conditions In
Constantinople, an additional Kavass, or detective force, had been stationed
at the American legation. This action was taken on the sugestlon of the
Turkish government, which has assured the American minister that It will
use every precaution to protect all foreigners, but has warned the different
embassies and legations that It would be well to strengthen the force Inside
the buildings.
In case a necessity develops, it Is probable that the Turkish government
will be requested to allow the United States to land a detachment of marines
from the squadron which is expected to arrive at Beirut to-day. Minister
Lelshman has not yet made such a request of this government. The United
States has no authority to send a warship thru the Dardanelles, and would
have to have the consent of Turkey and also that of other European powers
to do so.
FLEETS IN READINESS.
Paris, Sept 4.It is authoritatively
stated that in view of the growing
disorders in Turkey a French fleet
will be otdered to hold itself in
readiness to proceed to Turkish wa
ters. This determination followed the
receipt of a report from the French
Ambassador at Constantinople that it
was desirable to have warships in
readiness for all eventualities. Sim
ilar preparations have been made by
Italy, Austria, Russia and Great
Britain. Officials here expect the
fleets will act together in case of a
crisis.
LONDON'S EXPLANTION.
Foreign office Believes Marines Were
Landed to Protect Embassies.
London, Sept 4 No British marine*
have been landed at Constantinople, so far
as the foreign office is Informed, but it is
said that If the British embassy requires
protection the ambassador la authorized
to call upon the commander of the British
guardshlp for guards. The foreign office
considers it probable that Russia and Aus
tria have landed marines to protect their
embassies as a result of the porte's note
to the ambassadors, warning them that
Bulgarian agitators were projecting out
rages against the embassies, legations and
publlo buildings at Constantinople. So far
as the foreign office knows, Constanti
nople is quiet.
THE SITUATION AT BEIRUT
Several Arrests In Connection With
Magelssen Affair.
Constantinople, Sept 4 Consul Ravn
dal telegraphs from Beirut to Minister
Lelshman that the authorities there have
been aotively seeking the assailant of
Vice Consul Magelssen, but the consul is
not able to state whether or not he is
among the persons already arrested.
The United States cruisers Brooklyn
and San Francisco are expected to reach
Beirut to-day.
The report circulated by a news agency
Sept. 1 in the United States that a bal
loon bomb has been found near the palace
Is utterly without foundation.

USED HIS WIFE
AS COLLATERAL
r
But When Redemption Time Came
'Round Mrs. Bonezek Refused
to Return Home.
Hew York Sun Speolal Service.
Chicago, Sept 4.If John Bonezek ever
gets his wife baok home he will think
twloe before he puts her up again as
Security for a debt. He has settled the
debt, but his wife now says she prefers
the erstwhile creditor to her husband
and refuses to go home. Bonezek told
his story to Justice Eberhardt and gave
the magistrate a pretty matrimonial
tangle to unravel.
Bonezek said he bought a stock of gro
ceries from Michele Kulpanski some
months ago. He agreed to make an im
mediate payment of* $80 and in adltlon to
assume the debts of Kulpanski. The
grocer wanted some security. A note was
suggested and refused.
Then Kulpanskl's eyes fell on Bonezek's
wife and he was seized with an idea. Mis
Bonezek should come to his house and
take care of It until her husband had paid
Kulpanskl's debts.
This seemed a hard proposition to
Bonezek, but he agreed to it, and Mrs.
Bonezek went to the Kulpanski home.
Three days ago the last of the debts
was paid and the condition of the sale of
groceries had been complied with. Bone
zek went to the Kulpanski house for his
wife- She refused to return to her right
ful home.
No amount of urging either by the court
or the woman's husband could change
her mind and the matrimonial tangle has
been taken under advisement by the
justice for one week.

Jankoff Invades Turkey.
Sofia, Bulgaria, Sept. 4.Colonel Jan
koff, the insurgent leader, with three lieu
tenants of the insurgent army, with a
band of 300 insurgents, and with flags fly
ing, crossed the frontier on Monday eve
ning and pushed thru the Turkish posts
unopposed.
General Zontcheff, president of the
Macedonian committee, in the disguise of
a sheep dealer, also crossed the frontier.
Captain Stoyanoff's band captured fifty
Turkish soldiers at Rakovltza, about fif

Sofia) says the date of the general insur
rection has been postponed
Troops Number 400,000.
According to reliable information from
Constantinople, Turkey will shortly have
400,000 soldiers in Mecedonla. The pros
pects of the appearance of such an im
mense army causes the most intense anx
iety here. It is regarded as certain to
arouse the apprehensions of the powers.

on trades unionism. Neither does Mr.
Baer receive any mention. Said he:
"The book will be a defense of trades
unionism, more than 400 pages long. I"
have taken up the questions that face
the Industrial world, and have dealt with
them fairly, as I know them. I do not
doubt that from cover to cover it will
be seen that the writer is a trades union
ist, and a man who has the interests of
the laboring man at heart. But I will
say that the arguments of the capitalist
have been set forth fairly, and that I
have been conscientious In my efforts to
meet these arguments without prejudice.
I have also devoted a great deal of at
tention and space to the interests and in
fluence of the public In the labor contro
versy, which, as I have said in my book,
is a three-sided problem that can only
be settled by compromise by all three
labor, capital and the public.
"A careful perusal 'of my book will
demonstrate to any reader, I am sure,
the necessity of establishing more amic
able relations between capital and labor
than exist at present. Nothing in this
world has ever been gained without fight
ing, but in all great reforms there has
come a time when the fighting has ceased.
It Is for this time in industrial reform
that I am now praying. I have shown
that in a vast majority of cases the dis
putes between labor and capital can be
settled If the parties to a dispute will
only evince a mutual desire to be reason
able, sensible and fair. If this desire is
shown there will be fewer strikes and
fewer demands for arbitration."

SOME FAIR STATISTICS.
$
Totals $59,682.65 $68,183.00
Judging from the record of the turn
stiles at the state fair up to noon to-day,,
Minneapolis day will be the second biggest
day for 1903. At 12 o'clock 9,263 had
passed thru the St. Paul gates and 9,259
thru the Minneapolis turnstiles. By noon
on Minneapolis day about 20,000 had en
tered, against only 18,522 to-day.
It is worthy of lemark that on St. Paul
day, the saintly city furnished only four
more persons up to noon than Minne
apolis. On Minneapolis day about 58 per
cent of the visitors were from Minne
apolis. This Indicates that the greater
number of the out-of-town visitors have
chosen Minneapolis as their residence for
fair week.
It is probable that the week's attend
ance this yeai will be quite a bit below
that of 1902. Altho the skies were dear
this morning, the attendance was not as
large as expected. Yesterday the attend
ance was about 45,000, or 12,000 below
Thursday of last year, leaving a deficit
for the first four days of something over
15,000. Yesterday promised to be the
banner day of the week. To-day and to
morrow may make up a portion of this
decrease, but still the total for the week
will be below last year.
Minneapolis day this year was a bigger
day than either St. Paul or Minneapolis
day last year, and "promises to be bigge?
also than St. Paul day this year.
NEAT SURPLUS TO SPEND
Fair Managers Already Planning for New
Buildings.
Already the state fair managers are be
ginning to spend the money they hope to
gather' In tbvday and to-morrow. That
there will be a handsome surplus after
$45,000 has been paid out In premiums and
that much more for salaries and other ex
penses, is already assured, and the busy
promoters want to place it right away, for
there is so much ta be done.
In spite of the fact that a spacious swine
pavilion was opened this year, as well as
a handsome and commodious machinery
hall and in spite of the fact that many
large concerns have put up their own pa
vilions, the fair has grown so rapidly that
more space is needed. The farmers "who
a few years ago were content with the
dark places under the grand stand, or any
kind of makeshift Quarters now want the
palatial agricultural hall to themselves.
They want the horticulturists, the florists,
and the mycological club, to vacate and
give the granger, the real Atlas of the
"World, full sway. The horticulturalists
are anxious to go. In fact they have been
clamoring for years for a separate building
and assert their ability to fill a structure
of the largest size. "With these two in
fluential factors at work it is safe to pre
dict that there will be a horticultural
building next year.
The stockmen, also an influential class,
want a large amphitheatre for judging
livestock and holding auction sales. It
ought to be even larger than the immense
tent which does temporary duty as an
amphitheatre, and it ought to be of perma
nent character, that is of fire proof mate
rial.
These two buildings are practical cer
tainties for next year, provided the ex
pectations with regard to receipts are real
ized.
