DARDANELLES OPEN TO WARSHIPS London, Nov. 3. The Ottoman power in Europe is at an end Turkey to-night asked the powers for mediation, with a view to cessa tion of hostilities and the negotiations of peace. An official dispatch from Constantinople admits the defeat of Nazim Pasha in the furious five-da battle of last week. The Turks have fallen back upon the last line of fortifications outside the capital, nd the fall of Constantinople is now inevitable. PAJTIC SEIZES UPON CITT. Panic has seized upon the city. There. are grave fears of an out break against the Christians as soon as the situation becomes known to the fanatical Moslems who are demanding a holy war. Tn this perilous situation, and as a final admstsion of her helpless ness, the porte has granted permission to the powers for each to send one warship through the Dardanelles for the protection of their na tionals in Constantinople. FACE ANOTHER; QUESTION. Europe is now face to face with the problem of the distribution of the spoils. A momentous race is on between the ships of the powers and 'the victorious Bulgarian army as to which shall enter Constanti nople firstf " Either or both arc needed there to present the certain uprising against the Christians which otherwise will occur. But the pride of the Bulgar demands the right to the possession of the cit and the dictation of peace with the Turk, unhampered, in his own capital, without the interference of anv"t)f tli'pOWcrS.

Four small, inconsiderable states, fighting for their homes, have driven the power of Mohammed to the brink of the Bospho rus, where it dangles while the prophet utters cries for help. The general consensus of opinion to night is that the powers will not dare to interfere with the Balkan states In the completion of their work, or attempt to undo what has been done. The broad principle of their right to what they have paid with blood of thousands of slain will be recognised. The fate of Con ktantinoplc is in doubt. Of this, capital of the world once, center of cultivation, luxury and learning, -and latterly front nf th conization of Moslem, a buffer state will probably be made an Inde pendent principality, governed by all the powers jointly.

L. L. Caftanzoglu, charge d'affaires of Greece, last night declined to give the names of any of the American patriots who are willing to lay down their lives to drive the Turk from Christian Europe. Many of the volunteers hall from John Hopkins, but the exact number Mr. Caftanzoalu does not know Their services were not accepted for the" time being at least, but If the struggle with the "Terrible Turk" becomes desperate and the allies need troops, the Ameri can volunteers can, upon their own vo lition, take passage to Greece and there enroll themselves under the flag of that ancleut empire. The Grecian Legation, however, will not encourage any organ ized movement of American citizens in this country to Join the army of King George. Mr. Caftanzoglu said last night Would Help Greece. 'I have received a lot of letters, espe cially from educated people who are tn the American universities They have come from students at Johns Hopkins, Columbia, and Harvard, from athletes and men who have served In the war with Spain. They have written that they would like to help Greece in the struggle to free my country from the Turkish yoke. For the moment my gov ernment cannot accept the services of these volunteers. My government is deeply grateful to every one" who ex presses sympathy for Greece and its just cause. "I am not astonished, however, by this display or sentiment Dy the American people. Every one who has "been edu cated, especially in America, knows of the big part which Grecian civilization, the Greek arts, the Greek letters, the Greek philosophy, and the Greek Ideals have done for the advancement of the world. The splendid Anglo-Saxon civili zation Is founded on the Grecian. This is not the first time that' Amer ica has shown her sympathy toward Greece. In the agar of independence, in 1S:1, when all the governments of Europe were bound in the Holy Alli ance, and displayed distrust and no sympathy toward the movements of our people in their struggle for free dom, the united States, on the ether hand, on hearing of , our struggle, helped us all she could.

Tho wound began to bleed profusely and 'the Governor was hurried to the residence of Dr. C. G. Titus, a few blocks from where the accident oc curred. It tobk Dr. Titus two hours to dress the wound, but this wss because he 'became excited when he learned the identity of his distinguished pa tient, and for the further reason that like most country doctors, he was un prepared for an emergency case. The Governor called his own family physician. Dr. J. M. Carnohan. when he arose at 10 o'clock this morning, and the wound was redressed. Dr. Carnohan said that the Injury was slight and Uiat the Governor could keep his engagements to speak at- the rallies atPaterson and PassaMStb wind up the campaign. Capt. William J.

New York, Nov. i President Taft to day heard a Bull Moose sermon and sat through It unflinchingly. It was at the Unitarian Church of the Messiah that the President listened to much eulogy of the third-term candidate bv the pastor, the Per. Dr. John Haynes Holmes. The President attended church accompanied by Secretary HUIes. of the National Committee, and Henry W. Taft. Dr. Holmes, despite his previous knowledge of the expected presence of the Chief Executive, delivered his sermon, which startled his congregation with its em phatic progressive sentiment. The Presi dent, while surprised at Dr. Holmes delivery, showed no sign of annojance. and listened attentively throughout the sermon. He declined to make any com ment, .and merely smiled when asked for an expression of opinion. Dr. Holmes to-night defended his action by saying that the sermon had been prepared In advance, and expressed his personal opinion together with what he believed to be the opinions of a majority of the congregation. Tho President left New York at 8 o'clock to-night over the New York Cen tral for Cincinnati. He was accompanied by Maj. Rhodes, his aid. and Carml Thompson, private secretary. The time of leaving was two hours later than originally Intended, but the pnrtv will reach Cincinnati at tho same time, which Is 7.30 to-morrow night. Refnsea Statement. Before leaving, the President an nounced, through Mr. Thompson, that there will bo no official statement con cerning the new Vice Presidential candi date at least for another twentj-four hours, and that It was extremel) doubt ful that any such announcement would be made until after election. It Is known. howeVer, that Gov. Hadley of Missouri and John Wanamaker. of Philadelphia, were -the two leading candidates for the position. Gov. Hadley being favored by about twenty of the Republican National Committeemen and Mr. Wanamaker by almost an equal number.' The President was not Informed of the statement by William Barnes, chairman, of the New Tork State Committee, concerning the chalrmsn's approval of Mr. Wanamaker for the Vice Presidency, but Private Sec retary Thompson emphatically declared tact Mr. Barnes' utterance came as a purely personal opinion and was not basked' by the Presidential preference. .When asked If the President would ap prove the selectltn of Mr.. wanamaKer, Mr. Thompson replied:, The choice of the Vice Presidential 'candidate lies with the 'National Com- satttae.

Baltimore, Md, Nov. J. A message of assurance was given to the Catholics of the United Slates to-day by Cardinal Gibbons. The cardinal speaking from the Baltimore Cathedral, assured the mem' bers of his nation-wide pastorate that though dire predictions as to the political and civil future of the United States had gained credence during the present cam paign no material calamity could In real ity come to this country through politi cal Jugglery. The cardinal closed his seml-polltlcal discourse with a direct reference to the three Presidential candidates. He said: "There are three conspicuous citizens who are now candidates for the Presides ey. Whatever may be my private and personal preference and prediction, it Is not for me in this sacred pulpit, or any where else, publicly to dictate or even suggest to you the candidate of my choice. "May God so enlighten the mind and quicken the conscience of the American people to a sense of their civic duties as to arouse In them an earnest and practical Interest in the coming election, and may He so guide their hearts that they will select a Chief Magistrate who will re dound to the material prosperity and mor al welfare of our beloved republic" Guarded by Coaatltutlon. In regard to the crisis said to be facing the voters of the United States the car dinal said. In part: By the wise provisions of the Constitu tion of the United States political author ity Is not concentrated in one Individual, or In one department of the administra tion, but Is judicially distributed so that the balance of power may be preserved Our genenl goremmew. consipt" of the executive, me legisiativK rw tse inilt'Ji votucca. ml Himmns gin urons wun any one of these deDartmentf the il Is check ed by the other two. fend usurpation of power Is prevented. Tljere Is an habitual Jealousy among these blanches. They are of the alert, zealously watching one an other so that no one branch may exceed Its legitimate bounds. Eternal vigilance Is the price of liberty. Then, again, besides the Fedtral -ad ministration, we have State governments and county rules, and we have city. town, and village municipalities. If all of these minor corporations were ab sorbed by the-general government, if our Governors, and State legislators, and Sheriffs, and Mayors, and CouncUmcnH were all under the control of the Presi dent; It hevcould at all decapitate all obnoxious subordinate rules with one blow, all our political liberties would be at an end. But. happily, all these lesser officials enjoy full autonomy in their spheres and are independent of the Chief Magistrate. system Very Complex. our system of government Is very complex. It may be compared to colossal engine, containing innumerable wheels within wheelsr Each wheel works In Its own orbit, like the planetary sys tem. If the great Federal wheel gets.out of order, the smaller wheels are not much deranged, but keep on moving till the big machine is repaired. "We are all familiar with the memor able Titanic disaster, which resulted In the loss of so many precious llv es, as well as the peerless vessel Itself. Had all the compartments of that steamship been watertight, the loss of life would have been avoided. "Now, our government Is often called a ship of state. This great ship of state Is divided into forty-eight minor States. Each of these States may be said to ba waterproof in the sense that the engulf ing of one would not Involve the sinking of the others. California, for example. might be overwhelmed by the waters of a political revolution without disturbing tne neighDonng states or vvasmngton. Nevada, or Arizona. Autonomy the IlaliTarlc. "The safety and permanence, there fore, of our republic largely depends on the autonomy of the several States, vv ith out the danger of, absorption by the gen eral government- Should our Governors and legislators ever become the subservi ent creatures of the Federal government they would be mere puppets, subject to Lthe will of the Chief Executive. They would cease to be waterproof and would share the fate of the Titanic "Two momentous crises occurred in my own day which were well calculated to test the vitality and strength of the republic The first was the war be tween the States, when the nation was cut In twain, when fratricidal blood was shed over the land and a tremen dous conflict wss carried on for four years. This calamity has happily ended and the dismembered States are now more firmly untyed than ever before, be cause slavery, which was the bone of contention, hss been removed onco and forever. Oaly Possible Menace. 'The second crisis occurred ,ta the Presidential contest la UTS between Til den and Hayes. "Mr. Tilden was robbed of the fruit of tho victory which.

"A nation that could survive these ter rible strains must be possessed of ex traordinary vitality and resources, and leads us to hope that In any future emergency the leaders and statesmen of the repubUo wDl rise to the occasion and bring order out of chaos. "It is my profound, conviction that If ever tho republic la doomed to decay: If ths future historian shall ever record the decline or fall of the American re public Ita'downfall will be due not to a hostile invasion but to the Indifference, lethargy, and poiiuou apostasy or her t M'COMBS MAKES STRONG CLAIMS FOR DEMOCRATS Naflnal CuMittN (tot.

The Democratls National Committee, through its ohaja, nun, William F. McCqmbs. to-night Is sued the following forecast on Tuesday's election: "Wilson and Marshall will have the largest majority of electoral votes given any candidates since before the civil war. They will also receive the largest popular vote ever given a political party in the history of the United States. They will carry not less than forty of the fortv-elght States, and are likely to carry all of them. A unanimous vote in the electoral college will not sur prise any man who has seen the confi dent reports to Democratic national headquarters In the last days of the cam paign. Congress vv 111 be Democratic in both branches. The Lower House will not contain more than 100 of the combined opposition, and in the Senate the Dem ocrats I1I gain more than the ten saats necessary to wipe out tne ttepuoucan majority. The same sentiment that Is sweeping Wilson into active authority will back him up with legislative powers to do the things the people demand. The campa'gn hss been conducted In the spirit expressed by Gov. Wilson In a recent speech, appealing to the voters of New Jersey to elect a Democratic Congress as well as a Democratic Presi dent and Vice President. " 'I am not a candidate for a pedestal said Gov.

"Estimates of the popular vote can not approach accuracy without taking into consideration the difference in this and preceedlng elections. Heretofore efforts have been confined to a compar atively small number of doubtful States. Pennsylvania and Vermont, for cxamrle. were neglected as hopelessly Republican, and at the same time great Democrati States like Texas and Georgia were not Invaded at all. because they were sure to be found in the Democratic column. This year the Democratic committee has waged a determined and active campaign In, every State In the republic In tho States that have been consistently In In the Democratic column the full vot Is not generally polled In the Fres'dential campaign But this ar the committee lias urged Democrats In these States to pnll as large a vote as If the result depended upon registering the full Dem ocratic strength. No Brrak gnexestrd. 'There is not a suggestion of a break in the Democratic column from Texas to Maryland, and yet the committee has de voted more attention than usual to these certain Democratic States. It has needed and has received from theee States larger subscriptions to the campaign funds than ever before. Indeed, the Southern States had never before, except In 190S. been ap pealed to for campaign funds. This ear- most of them have contributed liberally and Interest has been stimulated by these popular subscriptions. 'In the nominally Democratic State? Wilson and Marshall will not only hold the usual Democratic vote but they will increase their -popular vote by a largi proportion of Southern Democrats who heretofore have staved at home because their votes were not necessary for their party to win. At tho same time the fighting ground in the North and West has benn swept with Democratic sentiment and there th Wilson vote will be larger than the Dem ocratic vote of Wfc, while the Republican vote will ba divided. Democratic victory In November was foreshadowed in September when ths Democratic vote In Vermont Increased 2 per cent over 190. while the combined Republican and third term votes fell I per cent below the Taft vote of 1908. The Maine result was equally significant. While the combined Republican and third term forces managed to elect a Governor by 3,03 plurality, the Democratic vote exceeded the September vote In 1908 by 1.000 while the Republican vote fell off 2,000.
