Every agency at their command has
been put In motion by the powers to pre

have been surprised by the Bulgarian
success the powers are more so and to

Fear for Christiana.
War ships hate been dispatched to
Constlntlnople, Salo.-lkl and other Turk

Christian missions must go unprotected.
There is grave fear. too. that the sight
of their crushed legions may Incite the
Mohammedans within Constantinople to
merciless attacks on those Christian resi

Balkans have fought. In that event the
city will be looted by the semi-barbarians

Wis Slim.
Chicago, Nov. 1. "Sophie was lying on
the bed. I didn't think she was hurt
much. My husband said we had better
leave before she became conscious, then
we sneaked away.'1
This was the concluding statement of
one of the most remarkable confessions
in the history of crime in Chicago. The
speaker was Lillian Beatrice Ryall Con
way, vaudeville actress and erstwhile
lion tamer, who with her husband.
Charles Conway, a circus performer. Is
being held for the murder of Sophia Ger
trude Singer, wealthy Baltimore heiress.
Who was slain In a rooming house at
Indiana Avenue last Monday night.
The woman declared that her husband
had committed the crime and absolved
herself from all guilt.
The confession was made In the pres
ence of police officials and a stenogra
pher late to-day.
It was shortly before noon that the
barrier of silence and fabrications that
the actress had built around herself at
last slowly cave way before the terrible
grilling of the police and the specter of
her dead friend.
She did not tell all, but two facta she
Insisted on. Tbe one was that bar hus
band killed the Singer girl, and that she,
his wife, had no hand in the crime.
In ber first confession of tbe morning
Mrs. Conway made her statements with
reluctance. They were drawn from her
only by adroit questioning. At last hope
lessly entangled In the meshes of her
own weaving, she expressed her willing
ness to make a clean breast of her con
nection with the crime. She was allowed
to rest until 2 o'clock, when again she
was taken Into the tiny office of the po
lice station. For two hours the door re
mained closed, and when again she was
seen her face was yellow and haggard.
While the dramatic recital was taking
place. Charles Conway, the husband, waa
confined In a cell directly below the of
fice. No one was allowed to -visit him.
and a solitary guard was under strict or
ders not to speak to him. The silence
was tomb-llkf. He gazed through the
bars with roving eyes, sensing the ex
citement above him. but unable to com
prehend Its significance. He will not
know until to-morrow afternoon when he
Is confronted with the document over his
wife's signature, that she has confessed.
He is apparently confident that his secret
rests safe. The police are administering
the dread "silent treatment." which la
reserved alone for murderera. When at
fc-st Conway 1s brought fate to face with
his Ttife It is believed that he, too, will
break down.

he declared.

days to two years, with the power of

"After you Gen. Johnston!"
This Is the extremely considerate ex
tent of several young boomleta for ap
pointment to the Board of District Com
missioners at the expiration of the terms
of the two civilian commissioners. Cuno
H. Rudolph and Gen. John A. Johnston,
next January.
Characteristically, Gen. Johnston Is
keeping his own counsel. He Is not say
ing whether he wants or would accept
another term as a member of the board.
The President appointed me for three
years, ' remarked Mr. Commissioner Gen.
John A. Johnston yesterday to a re
porter who had the temerity to ask him
If he waa a receptive candidate. "Tbe
President will know whether he desires
to appoint me for another term when the
time comes." .
"My Idea In asking," replied the re
porter, "waa to learn It 50U would ac
cept another term should It be offered
We will cross thst bridge when we
come to It." replied the harrassed of
ficial as he disappeared through the
doorway Into his office.
None j Ready to Ask.
In the meantime. In as much as Com
missioner Rudolph, president of tbe
board, has announced his willingness to
serve a second term If appointed, pros
pective candidates are Inclined to look
upon the office occupied by Gen. Johns
ton as their principal source of hope
However, as far aa Is known now, there
Is none so anxious for the office at this
time as to ask for it it Gen. Johnston
desires to sign a new lease.
Business and professions! men of Wash
ington were In greater accord than usual
In asking the appointment three years
ago of Mr. Rudolph. Gen. Johnston, too.
had a particularly, strong support arawn
from a more varied circle or menus, in
Mr. Rudolph's case particularly, and to
hardly a less degree in tne case or uen.
Johnston, the influences which were able
to name the auccessfut candidates three
years ago will. It Is believed, nave -t
eight -with President Taft when the
latter feces the question of the personnel
of the board next January. In other
words, if these Influences desire to have
the present civilian membership on the
board continued, and If these members
desire to be continued, it is unlikely
that any change will take place. And
from present appearances these Influences
still are behind Mr. Rudolph and Gen.
The Board of District Commissioners
ss now constituted have been In more
harmonious accord than any board In
recent years. All three members have
applied themselves diligently to the
tasks set before them, and with the
hostile attitude of the House, as mani
fested in 1910 and 1911, to cope with, the
task has been far from easy. Reports
placed In general circulation from time
to time to the contrary, notwithstanding,
officials of the District government In
sist, there has been no general line of
division, divisions in the board have
depended upon Individual questions, and
ho two members have been found more
frequently on one side than on another.
Radolph as SstoVeaman.
As President of the Board. Commis
sioner Rudolph hss shouldered n large
share of the hand-to-band work of the
District, and. In announcing policies or
decisions, has spoken for the board as a
whole. Commissioner Johnston's work,
according to officials of the District, has
been of a nature that would not readily
appeal to public attention. Gen. John
ston, naturally a reticent man. has the
reputation around the District Building
of being a close student of municipal
matters which come to his attention and
of Insisting on digging to the roots of a
question before making up his mind.

Rochester, N. T., Nov. 1. Speaking to
an audience of 3.000. consisting largely
of Republicans, at the Shubert Theater.
In the Republican boss-ridden county of
Monroe, Gov. Wilson declared that the
Senate of the United States has. In our
time, been the citadel of private Interests
and that It has not represented the peo
ple. "The Governor mentioned Chauncey
M. D;pew as a member of the private
coterie. that has ruled the Senate, and
added that "Senator O'Gorman is not."
The Governor declared also that for
years New York State has gone through
the motions nf instituting reforms, but
only through the motions, and that noth
ing substantial In that direction had
been accomplished. He did not make an
exception, even of the administration of
Gov. Dlx. He thought It about time
that New Tork should do something for

The Shubert Theater was the second
meeting at which the candidate spoke In
Rochester. The first was at Convention
Hall, and was by far the largest In at

outset to be packed with Bull Moose,
for Just before Gov. Wilson entered, and
while a local speaker was on the plat
form, there was a demonstration, not on
the programme, for CoL Roosevelt. The
Governor's friends were fearful that he
might be Interrupted by the Roosevelt
admirers, but on the contrarj, the crowd
gave the Governor a fourjeen-mlnute
demonstration, in which everybody
seemed to Join. His speech, which was

candidates for the State ticket. Col.

date on the platform. In many respects
tbls evening's affair was as remarkable
aa that of Wednesday. There was the
same sea of flags and flare of red ban
dana and the same cataract of cheering
that stirred the crowds of Wednesday
and Thursday.
The crowd had evidently worn Itself
out with the demonstration In honor of
the colonel and a previous twenty-
minute storm of applause which earlier
in the evening greeted the appearance of
Oscar S. Straus. Progressive nominee for
After Mr. Straus had been applauded
for eleven minutes three bands simul
taneously struck up "The Star Spangled
Banner." a calcium light was switched
upon the platform, and the candidate for
Governor, his face beaming; waved his
arms like twin batons. Mrs. Theodore
Roosevelt, with her daughter-in-law.
Mrs. "Teddy. Jr." waved bandanas and
Progressive banners and cheered wildly.
After State Chairman Hotchklss had
turned the chairmanship of the meeting
over to Comptroller Prendergast, Fred

gan speaking at 9.30. At 9.42 a volley of
cheers from without announced the ar

with a, newly acquired bodyguard of
Burns detectives, had bad his wound

of Dr. Alexander Lambert, and came to
the Garden following a conference with
some of his political leaders.
The colonel, attire in trock coat, witn
a dark spotted vest and low tumaown

and it was noticed that he seemed to be

Then he smiled and waved his left hand.
At 10 06 a huge bandanas flag from Cal

The tangle with reference to street
