An indi tatlon of th? troubles experienced by Mr. Leishvr.ann, United States minis ter to Turkey in his dealing with that government !s disclosed in the Turkish diplomatic correspondence made public at the tate department today. In a telegram to the department Leishmann complained that the grand vizier who had repeatedly refused to see him, had countermanded and annulled a number of matters upon which the minister of foreign affairs had acted favorably. In order to exhaust every effort, Leish mann demanded an audience with tha sultan. Leishmann requested in his telegram to Secretary Hay that unless the audience was granted ard not only the questions at issue, but the princi ples Involved in them satisfactorily set tled that he be given permission to Qe mand his passports. He said further: "It would be worse than uselegs and derogatory to the dig nity of the United States government to continue relations with the Sublime Porte, if, after weeks and even months of hard patient work business which has been fully settled with the minister for M for foreign affairs is to be rendered un failing By the grand vizier's conflict- anc countermanding orders." ubsequently Mr. Leishmann re- ortecl that' the sultan had expressed the wish that he overlook the discour tesy shown him on the ground that the grand vizier was an old man and not feeling well. Emphatic instructions were sent by the sultan to the grand vizier to receive Leishmann at all times in a manner "befitting the dignity. of the representative of a great power," when Leishmann consented to resume relations. Leishmann subsequently re sumed relations with the Porte and a diplomatic rupture was avoided. WOMAN'S DISJOINTED CORPSE Said to Have Been Seen Floating in the Yellowstone. Gardiner, Mont., May 9.

Copies of the dis patch were circulated among the shopmen. The dispatch denies abso lutely the charge that the Southern Pacific has assisted the Union Pacific in any way and" declares that the trouble on the latter system was due to a demand for a ten per cent In crease In wages, recognition of the union and certain shop rules, and had nothing to da with the question of plec work, which was introduced only with the new employes.

BRYAN EASILY DRAWN OUT Upon tha Subject of the Can didacy of Cleveland His Observations on the Expression of Fublic Sentiment Regarding the( former President It Is He Thinks Mmnactured, Newark, N. J., May 9. The News prints an interview Its Lincoln, Neb., correspondent had with William J. Bry an, in which the following conversation was given: "Is it possible for Grover Cleveland to receive the democratic nomination next year?" "There is not the remotest possibility of Clevelfind becoming the nominee. Even his state will not risk him as a candidate," said Bryan. "But Cleveland has apparently coma out of retirement and many suppose he is seeking the nomination," remark ed the News man. "I am not In Mr. Cleveland's confi dence," said Mr. Bryan, "and therefor cannot give any Inside explanation, but as an outsider, I venture to say that his purpose is to positively refuse to be a candidate after a while and then allow his friends to say that he would have been nominated and elected had he not refused to run. This might afford Cleveland some satisfaction as a salv.i for the bruises which he has nursed since 1896. "There is a tall of the democratic party which was very nearly pulled out several years ago that Is just as mon opolistlc'ln its tendency as the repub lican party Is. There are also a num ber of nswspapers calling themselves democratic that are as monopolistic as any of the republican papers, and I will name a number of them: The Chi cago Chronicle, the Nashville Ameri can, Louisville Courier-Journal, Boston Herald, Philadelphia Ledger, New York Times, Brooklyn Eagle and some others. This class of papers can be relied upon to support any republican policies the financiers of the country are interested In. They keep up an attack on minor things and sometimes attack individual republicans, but they are so closely al lied to organized wealth that they sim ply deceive the people. If there were a law compelling these newspapers to carry the n;mes of the men who dic tate their policies af'the top of the edi torial pages, the people would know that the supposed editors had little o. no voice. These so-called democratic papers can be depended upon to defend any democrat who- betrays his party and his contstiuents and abuse any democrat who cannot be corrupted. "This class of newspapers represent as public sentiment that which they d sirc the people to think Is public senti ment." Mr. Bryan said this" is a way that made it plain that he thought this is just what was done in the extensive comments on the ovation given Cleve land at St. Louis on Dedication day. Bryan also made It plain that he did not consider the reception given Cleve land as being connected, so far as thj reople who made the noise were con cerned. In the least with a presidential boom for the Sage of Princeton. "What do you think of the idea in some quarters that the powerful Wall street Interests are to oppose President Roosevelt as the republican nominee?" "There is no evidence of it outside of the news that is controlled by Wall street. The bureau of commerce and the Elklns bill, which Is said to have been drafted by the president of the Pennsylvania railroad, are significant responses to anti-trust legislation." Bryan commended President Roose velt's work In the settlement of the coal strike and said1 the Northern Se curities company decision was a righte ous on. SIMPLY "NOT DESIROUS." Mr. Cleveland's Reply to a Question From the South. Atlanta, Ga., May 9. In reply to a letter from R. F. Holder Jr., editor of the Athena Banner, In which was glvn the result of a poll of the business men of Athens, showing a strong sentiment for the nomination of Mr. Cleveland, and which contained this question: "Are you now considering or would you con sider nTaklng the race for the presi dency next year on the democratic tick et?" Ex-President Cleveland writes as follows: "Princeton, N. J.. May 9, 1903. "B. F. Holder Jr. Dear Sir: I thank you for your letter of the 4th instant, and for the editorial clipping from your paper which accompanied it. I cannot fall to be gratified by the kindly ex pressions which frequently come to me in these days from all parts of our country, and I desire to thank you for your loyal support in the past and for your exceedingly friendly expressions at this time. I n answer to the ques tion with which you conclude your let ter, I can -say no more than to assure you that at no time since the close of my last administration have I been de sirous of carrying the democratic ban ner for the fourth time In a presidential ' contest. Yours truly, "GROVER CLEVELAND." BUBONIC PLAGUE DYING OUT. Washington. D. C, May 9. The ma rine hospital service has received a tel egraphic report from the president of the Mexican health council concerning the plague situation in that country. He says not a ease has occurred at( Mazatlan since March 16. but that there j are ten cases at Villa Union and five at 1 Siqueroa. TRAINS CAME TOGETHER. An Engineer's Fatal Neglect of Hi. Orders. Syracuse, May 9. A special to the Post-Standard from Malone says: "A terrible head-on collision occurred at Nelson Lake on the Mohawk & Malone railroad this afternoon. Two passenger trains, traveling at a high rate, crashed into each other and five persons are re ported dead and several Injured. The scene of the wreck is about fifty milea from Utica on the main line between Utica and Montreal. The disaster oc curred on a curve and the locomotives and mall cars were badly wrecked. Thh! mail compartments are reported to be In splinters and the loads of mail are burled in the debris. The two trains were supposed to meet ?t Fulton Chain, a few miles from Nel son Lake. It Is said that the engineer of one of the trains ran past his or ders and caused the disaster. Engineer Nevlns of one of the trains was killed in the crash. James R. Jones, mail clerk, had both legs broken. John Best, another mail clerk. Is still alive, though frightfully injured. John T. Glynn, a newsboy, was killed. Conductor Frank Faulkes and Fireman Yerden are also dead. Several passengers are reported Injured, but as far as ascertained, none fatally. o HAVEMEYER WILL HIRE A HALL For a DhcuEsion of the Labor Prob lem. New York, May 9. John C. Have meyer In an open letter published In the newspapers of Yonkers, issues a challenge to the trades unions in which he offers to engage a public hall and de fray all expenses excepting for th- speakers and make one condition that the unions agree to confine thlr speeches to answering questions to be furnished by him in advance. He as serts that a refusal to accept his offer wilLbe an acknowledgment of weakness on the part of the men. In his letter, Mr. Havemeyer says to the trades unions: "Has -It ever oc curred to you that the ability or skill to do any kind of work comes from God and is a trust of which we are bound to make good use. To what ex tent has' any man the right to cease from work and thus cease to use the gifts. Nor has he the right by per suasion or .force to keep other men from exercising this gift even If he is un willing to use it himself. If through Idleness men are refusing to use the talent which God gave them, they cer tainly are fighting Him and are en gaged in a hopeless contest." "If a thief assaults me. steals my pocketbook or takes other property and is convicted he is sent to prison. How far does the morality of such acts differ from that of those men who lose money, which Is practically what the thief does? And is it not Just as Immoral to keep a lot of men from working and thus cause great loss to other people and prevent them from earning money needed for the support of their fami lies? "I believe the time is not far distant when the courts will so decide, for the world cannot afford to have Its peace and comfort interfered with so serious ly by the suffering and demoralization practiced. In conclusion, I hereby ex tend an Invitation to the trades unions of Yonkers to discuss this question. Tha object of this will be to prevent a waste cf time by irrelevant and excitable ap peals and to secure a clear and full statement of the grounds upon which the action of the trades unions Is based." 0 VENEZUELAN OEFICER FOOLED WITH THE FLAG Minister B6wen Demanded and cured an Apology. Se- Washington, May 9. An interesting account of the action of Mr. Bowen at Caracas In demanding an apology from the Venezuelan government for the Im proper use made of the American flag by the commander of the Venezuelan gunboat Restaurador Is given In th.? current volume of "Foreign Relations." Mr. Bowen, without waiting for in structions from the United States, call ed in person on the minister for foreign affairs and said to him: "Your captain dishonored the Ameri can flag and he should be ordered to raise and salute It, and your govern ment should apologize." The minister said he desired several days In which to investigate the mat ter. "The facts that I have presented to you are indisputable," said Mr. Bowen, "and I can give you only twenty hours, for I feel that at the end of that time I must cable the facts to my govern ment." On the following day regreU were expressed on behalf of Venezuela, and the flag' was saluted with-twenty-one guns KANSAS ASYLUM INVESTIGATION. Osawatomle. Kas., May 9.

TURKO-BULGARIAN CASE PUZZLES THE POWERS Both Parlies Have Been Made to Clearly Understand. That No Territorial Advantage Can Result to Either From a War If the Summer Fighting Season Can Be Pas sed Safely It Is Hoped That the Dispute May Be Sat isfactorily Adjusted Next Winter There Are Grave Fears That the Conflict Cannot Be Staved Off. Berlin, May 9. The German govern ment regards the Turko-Bulgarlan sit uation as being grave but responsible officials say that if a collision can be staved off through the summer more sober counsel can get a hearing in the winter when military action in impos sible. Regarding the mutual recrimin ations of Turkey and Bulgaria imput ing bellicose purposes the officials here say Turkey certainly cannot wish for war because she is unable to bear the expense and knows beforehand that the powers would not permit territorial ex pansion as a result of victory. It is also believed that Bulgaria, while showing a deplorable weak attitude towards the revolutionary .ilements does not desire war. The powers have made representations to Sofia, empha sizing the impossibility of illowmg Bulgaria to realize the fundamental alms of its policy, namely the acquisi tion of a part of Macedonia. The powers inow that the partition of Ma cedonia in favor of Bulgaria would cause Greece, Servia and ether coun tries to raise claims for Turkish terri tory. H?nce the powers are unitedly determined not to permit any change A MAFAI ATTEMPT TO BLOW UP UIMBRIA New York, May 9. An Infernal ma chine cor.nected with a hundrec pounds of dynamite was found in a box on th Cunard liner pier today. According to the expert opinion of the superintendent of the bureau of combustibles, the box was found and put into the rivef just in the nick of time to prevent its explod ing and demolishing the pier and the Umbria, which was alongside ard about to sail. The box was left at the pier yesterday in an apparent atb.-mpt to have it .placed aboard with the baggage of the passengers. The discovery of the box wart due to a letter received at police headquarters today, addressed to Comrr issioner Greene, containing the greeting of the Mafia society and informing him of placing the box on a vessel. It said "The society has declared war against England s.nd has ordered the destruc tion of every steamer flying the British flag that sails out of New York har bor. "The undersigned received orders to begin operations by sinking the Ocean ic, but so many women and children took passage that the society's plans were changed at the last minute."

On the other hand, the reforms in Macedonia which have unfortunately been suspended through the outbreaks of violence at Salcnica. must be carried out and Austria Hungary and Russia, which are immediately concerned, will see through their consuls that they are carried out. It is understood that the powers in their representations at So fia reproaching the Bulgarian cabinet with showing weakness toward the rev olutionists pointed out the necessity for a more energetic attitude. In addition to the communications made to the government at Sofia the powers have made representations at Constantinople which have convinced Turkey of the hopelessness of deriving any territorial or pecuniary advantage from attacking Bulgaria. Nevertheless danger lies in the fact that Turkish and Bulgarian troops are crowding on each other on the frontier and proximity to it. rendering accidental collision possi ble, which could easily grow into un controllable dimensions. The situation therefore, is having a depressing effect on the government bourses and is pre venting any operations on a large scale. M.
