Constantinople, Nov. 5 (Associated

T'nsha is tho new Governor, and

allied troops out. In a noto to the

of the Angora Government.
The llrst note deals with the visit to
Kemalist ports of eight allied and
American warships and declares that
the port authorities have been instructed
not to permit a landing. In
..ccordance with maritime laws the
Turks require that these vessels salute
the Turkish flag.
The other note acts up a claim for
the immediate handing over to the
Angora Government of the Turkish
railways in Eurbph and Asia which
are under temporary allied control.
The Turks have torn up the Mudaniu
armistice convention and their
troops are advancing into the Chanak
area occupied by the British and other
neutral zones. Tlio Kemalisls have
set up an ndministVatlon at Berjaz.
A note presented by Ham id Bey to
the allied Commissioners says:
"After the abolition of the oltl regime
i he Turkish population of Constantinople
spontaneously and enthusiastically
proclaimed Its union with the
great national Assembly of Turkey.
"Orders have been transmitted to
take all necessary dispositions for the

of Constantinople, therefore,

Turkey has no intentions to overstep
the military bounds lixed by the Mq l.inia
convention. It deems it neccs
snry to point out that a certain number
of gendarmes must be sent from
Angora for the maintenance of yrder
. s already arranged for in Thrace.
"We hope the allied Powers will ac ept
favorably this demand.
[According to the terms of the Muianla
armistice agreement the Angora
bivernment was to withdraw all Turkish
troops from the zone of allied occupation
and new neutral zones in the
t'ahnak and Ismfd ereas were to be 1cfined.
The Turks agreed to respect the
neutral zones until the Allies withdrew.
The Angora Government lvound Itself
not to transport troops Into Thrace or
to raise an trray there until peace had
been ratified.]
Rafet Pasha sprang the news of the

manner on the allied Generals. The
Generals had summoned Rafet to discuss
the question of the admission of

of the discussion, Rafet, as by
way of an afterthought, broke the
startling news thug:

Dookn, Holland. Nov. g.?Princess
I Hermine of Iteuss to-day became tho
bride of William Hohcnzollern, former
German Emperor, at Doom House,
the place of exile of the ono time
) "All Highest." She will be remembered
for having baffled all the Intrigues
of German monarchists and
in having led William, despite an almost
universal opposition In Germany,
to the altar.
There were two ceremonies, ono i
civil, held in the lodge; the other, religious,
the chateau.
Shortly before 2 o'clock the exKalser's
twenty guests, followed by
the Doom House personnel, including
Dutch police, congratulated the new
wearer of tho titles, "German Empress"
and "Queen of Prussia," which
was done in accordance with the exKaiser's
orders.
While the ceremonies, civil and religious,
were carried out in the strictest
secrecy. The New York Herald
i obtained from an eyewitness a reliable
' account of what took place in the
' lodge and in the main hall of Doom
| House, which events some day may I
bo of much political Importance In- ;
' volving questions pertaining to es-1
tates and even perhaps to dynastic |
succession. The guests were sworn
to secrecy and were under Prussian 1
military surveillunco until they left j
| either for dinner at Amerongcn to- j
! night or for their homes.
Msna as "M Hhelm II."
| The ceremonies began at 11 o'clock,1
i when In the presence of lawyers the j
britle signed the marriage contract as j
| "Herniinc, Keuss," and the bridegroom !
i as "WUhclm II." Fifteen minutes later,
with the skies overcast and a drizzle
' thut did not suggest u cloudless future.
Burgomaster Schimmclpennlnck. in a
room in the lodge building, read the
formal Dutch marriage ritual. The cxKaiser
instead of replying "yea" merely
bowed, but llermlne proclaimed her
willingness to accept tho ex-Kaiser us
her master loudly and proudly.
There were only six witnesses present
j at the civil cfr?'tnony. including Count
von Moltke and Herinlne's sister, the Prlni
cess of Stolberg-Rossla. These made the
| fifty yard Journey from Doom House to
j the lodge building In closed automobiles.
No rings were exchanged In tho civil
ceremony and tho ex-Kalger requested
that no congratulations Bo offered until 1
1 (he religious ceremony had been con1
eluded.
By the time the ex-Kaiser and his
bride arrives! in the main hall all the
guests hud assembled. It \ as a ver

Winning the War.
Washington, September 13, 1918.
Everything goes happily here these
days, because we are winning the war.
and the future of the world will soon
bo in the hands of a man who not so
long ago was a school teacher. A
great world this is, isn't it? And the.
greatest romance is not even the fact
that Woodrow Wilson is its master
but the advance of the Czecho-Slav*
across 5,000 miles of ftussiau Asia?
an army on foreign territory, without
a government, holding not a foot ol
land, who are recognized as a nation!
This stirs my imagination as I think
nothing In the war has since Albert of
Belgium stood fast at Liege.

Lack of Program Balks Democratic

i By LOI'IS 8E1HOL1I.
The most impressive feature of tho
olitieal contests to be settled ou
'uesday is the indifference of voters
enerally to the appeals and pledges
f the two major parties. Tho next
lost important feature is the lack of
lopular enthusiasm for the recent
ecords of both the Republican and
ieinocratic parties.
The chief interest of voters in most
f the contests for tho control of
hlrty-two State governments, the sesetion
of thirty-flvc United States
enators and 435 members of the
louse of Representatives has been
entered on Individuals and one or
wo so-called issues of dubious potical
value or mainly of local imortance.
In the campaign now closing there
as been no broad or uniform issue
) mark any real difference between
he Republican and Democratic paries.
The attitude of voters has conjletely
Justified the conclusion of potlcal
students that citizens throughut
the country are dissatisfied with
ue record of the Republican Adminitration
and completely disappointed
ver the failure of the Democrats to
ropose a program calculated to relove
the fundamental causes for poplar
complaint.
Tho non-existence of an independnt
agency through which popular
rotests may be made against both
artles is unquestionably responsible
or tho failure of 3.000,000 or 4,000,000
oters throughout tho cqjintry to
ualify for participation in the pendtg
contests. Political leaders natrally
attach much importance and
erious concern to the depreciation
f the registration in some of the
lost important stales, which in lvnnclvania
amounted to 408,000, in New
ork 183,000, In Ohio 180,000. in Minjur!
100,000. in Michigan 120,000, with
proportionate falling off elsewhere.
The leaders of both political parties
re not only prepared for but expect
>any surprises In the contests- for
tate oflices in some of the most imortant
States, as also in the struggle
ir the control of Congress. Despite
lelr grossly extravagant claims of
lie moment private admissions of
adcrs everywhere reflect an unprecedented

AFTER MEN' HIGHER II'
j Criticizes District Attorney
for Encouraging Fraud
by Not Acting.
With positive evidence of election
frauds planned by the wholesale, and
plainly distrustful of District Attorney
Banton's attitude toward the proveni
Hon of these projected frauds, Gov.
Miller sent a letter to Mr. Banter
j yesterday which warns him to attack
with the machinery of the law at hi?
disposal or be prepared to deal witli
Nathan L. Miller.
In one of the most candid communications
on record the Governor
Informs District Attorney Bunion that
Ills explanation of why election fraud
evidence had not been acted upon is
unsatisfactory; that Ban ton has shown
complaisance toward the most serious
crimes that can be committed; tha:
his attitude is an intimation to prospective
criminals that they had nothing
to fear, and that Banton's firs!
duty (not performed, to the Governor's
mind) is to prevent crime rather than
1 punish it.
In language' barely veiled the Governor
informs the District Attorney tha'.
j lii desires to give him the chance to do
bis duty by all the parties and all tho
' candidates, but that if the. duty i# neg(
Jected Banton need not doubt that the
! full power of the State will bo used to
remedy tne neglect and to prosecute any
one. high or low, guilty ot complicity
I in a crime against suffrage.
IInst Oct Men Higher t'p.
Heretofore, the Governor inform- tha
District Attorney in the most direct
terms, there have been too many threatening
words before election in relation
to the duty of public officials and onl;
fnrfrrtffnlnPKhi nrtri f/.mnl.i'-incrt
election. This time, he assures Banton
It will not be the underlines, but the
men higher up, that he will seelc to put
ir. Sing h'lng. Even If defeated Go?Miller
will have about two months to
sf rve.
Ite directly charges Bant in tr'th lvivj
inc adopted an attitude which may have
given encouragement to law breakers,
and he hears down hard on the point
that the result of the election will have
no effect whatever upon him. .. e
j Governor of the States In the way of rcI
laxlng effort to put offenders against th?
I suffrage In prison. He cln?"S n remarkable
document with this plain warning
[ "If necessary I will v e that adequate
and competent machinery set up so
that the courts may de il < ftectlvely with
those who commit crime. Public oth.
i ers who aMtttf wink at, condone or as- t j
-dst In violations of the law will aaswe
to me."
The Governor wrote this letter yeeter
day afternoon In his apartment at the
Hotel Gotham soon before ho left foe
j Albany. He wrote It In rep'y to a letter
from Banton which was dated Novembe2
and which set forth. In detail, the
District Attorney's now familiar reasons
why the Grand Jury room was noo
opened by him for the examination ef
election fraud evidence which Pep;it *
\ttorney-General Gllber'. urgently de
sired to present. Mr. Bantnn wrote that,
the regular Grand Jury had voted to a<'(Journ
