ONDON, Jan. 20. Tho peace nego-

over the cession of Adrlanoplo on
January 6, finally were broken to
day by a note which tho pleni
potentiaries of tho BnJkan allies pre
sented to Rcchad. Pasha, head of the
Turkish delegation.
Notwithstanding this rupturo there still
arc optimists in tho diplomatic world who
hope a resumption of tho war yet may
be averted, cither through freEh proposals
that Turkey is reported to bo including

A majority of the Balkan delegates re
fuse to admit tho likelihood of cither con
tingency, believing that tho life of tho
Young Turk government depends upon
tho resumption of .ie war even If tho
allies should be willing to postpone the
conflict. They are of tho opinion that
the present failure of diplomacy, at the
worst, only is an Interlude, however, for
they will leave four representatives in
London to undertake the aottlcment
Reclmd Pasha, after receiving the
note, unld:
"Tho consequences may be of tho x-rav-cst
nature The responsibility lies not
aJono with tho nlllc6. but with lha pow

and havo ohown no fairness toward Tur
key although bcforo tho war they had
proclaimed solemnly tho principle of tho
unchangcablllty of tho status."
Plan of Allies.
The plan of th allied governments so
far as tho plenipotentiaries aro informed
Is to concentrato their forces on Adrian

the proscribed four days, If the surrender
of that forlrran does not occur ln tho
meantime. They bollevo that a few

The BaJknJi representatlvef? dcchiro that
all reports that Rumnnla would aid Bul

advantago of the opportunity to gain hor
territorial claims by forco while tho Bul

Bulgaria would let her occupy the ter

tonight was elected speaker of the Illi

eighth general assombly.
The breaking of the deadlock, which
had lasted since January S, came on the

of William McKinley came on McKinley

a spilt among: tho 7-,ce O'Neill Browne

election of Lorlmer possible. On the

regular Republicans.
Tho decisive ballot was taken after the
house had recessed fiftoen minutes to
allow the Republicans to hold a caucus
and their leaders lo engage In private
Jt was openly charged on the floor that
tho bargain by the Republicans was that,
in return for their old, the Democrat:?
should Join with them in electing- D. Y.
Sherman (Republican) for United States
senator for the long term and Charles
BoeBchbnatein (Democrat) as senator for

Dr. H, B. Spraguc, who has attended
Christensen from tho first and has visit

Not Without Precedent.
A well-established and successful sur
gical treatment for euro of tubercular
peritonitis embraces the opening np and
aeriatlon of tho 'abdominal cuvlty. The
oxygen-laden air does tho rest, attack
ing the tubercular germs and killing
thorn. Should Christensen bo found to
have recovered from consumption of the
lungs, will his effort at self-destruction
lmvc resulted in the scientific discovery
that the method for treating tubercular
peritonitis can bo applied with equal suc
coea to tlie cure of tuberculosis of the
lunga, even though the air bo admitted
through bullet holes inflicted .with the in
tent of self-destruction?
For some time past, the treatment as
applied to the tubercular infection of tho
abdominal cavity has been'i advocated, by
at least one physician of prominence, for
a lllco condition of the lungs. Dr. Sprague
admitted last night that im is dec-ply in
terested in the phenomenon of Chrlsten

and raid that he- could offer no explana
tion for it. other than the possible cur
ative effect of tho air admitted to the
jiffccted area through the bullet holes.
Saved by Salt Water.
M the time Christensen shot himself,
he was removed Immediately to St.
Mark's hospital and an operation per
formed in an effort to save his life from
hemorrhage. To prevent death from
anemia, a. salt solution was. injected Into
his veins to lake the place of tfne blood
lost. Though tho three bullets, fired with
tho intent of piercing tho heart, had
passed through Chrlstonsun'o body Just
under tho vital organ aimed at, tho man
showed favorable symptoms under treat
ment from tho llrst, and hiB entire re
covery from the effects of the wounds
is now regarded tia almost cortain.
The possibility that rho wife elaj-er
and would-he suicide's act might lead lo
a scientific discovery that would prove a
boon to mankind, Av3dlc ho -was lntont
only upon doeds of violence, was suspect
ed by Dr. Spraguo soon after Christen
sen was ivcll on tho rond to recovery.
The man, ldmsclf, noticed that ho
coughed loss and that in spite- of his
wound he experienced less distress in his
lungs and no necessity for excessive ox
peotoration. As ht, -has progressed
toward convalescence, hio constitutional

Japanese Approaches Citizens
on Main Street and Offers
(0 Part With -i5o.
With a profound bow and an apologetic
smile a well-dressed Japanese yesterday
approached a citizen on Main street and
offorcd him 51C0 in bills. The citizen
eyed the oriental skeptically and brushed
by. The undaunted Nipponese walked
further and npproaohed a second citizen
in the same courteous manner, offering
hia entire roll of bank notes, but In vain.
A third, a fourth, a llfth citizen was ac
costed and wa3 offered tho roll. But tho
Japanese elmply eoujdn't givo the money

Was it a now confidence gamog "Was j
it "too oaty?" Or what wan U? These !
questions probably passed through the
minds of those who were approached by
tlie almond-eyed stranger. Whatever each

that tho Japaneso couldn't get rid of the
money in tho business heart of tho city
after an hour's attempt.
