ABDUL S HOLD Oil POPULACE The Only ThingThat Maintains THE SHADOW OF THE ARMY Fell All Day Across Constan tinople With Panic-Inspiring Effect-The Actual In vasion Is Said to Have Be gun This Morning. Constantinople, April 23. The ad vance of the concentrated army of in vestment was begun today. While the favored troops of the Constantinople garrison were giving homage to the sultan on Tildiz hill, there was a for ward movement of the constitutional forces to within two and a half miles of the Tildiz Kiosk. The cavalry went out to reconnoiter and soUliers were sent to picket the bridge across the Sweetwaters. A party of fifty American tourists, just arrived, were turned back by the horsemen. The infantry was then ob served advancing, and rumors spread throughout the city that the army was about to enter the capital and fighting was inevitable. There was a great panic: Shopkeepers In a large part of Pera put up their shutters. British Ambassador Lowther was caught in the swirling crowd near the embassy. and hundreds of frantic persons pour ed into the embassy compound, im ploring aid. The gates of the embassy were closed with difficulty, but It was late In the afternoon before the refu gees were reassured and sent home ward. The outponts of the invaders remain within about two miles of the palace tonight. It Is impossible to say just what are the intentions of the . leaders of the constitutionalists, who are divided into two factions, radicals and conserva tives. Evvldently the constitutionalists are divided regarding the sultan. The parliamentary deputies, who met at San Stefano today, seem to favor his dep osition; but the splendid reception ac corded the sultan today on his appear ance in public was a graphic demon stration of the fact that he retains a strong hold on the hearts of the peo ple. He was acclaimed by thousands on his way from the gate of the palace to the white mosque outside the walls of Tildiz Kiosk. General Mahmoud Schefket, who In a telegram to the grand vvizier today 'styled himself commander-in-chief of the army of investment and of the Ot toman fleet, is now almost in supreme authority. In his communication, pub lished tonight as a proclamation. Gen eral Schefket said: "Owing to recent corruption among the imperial guard, the power of government In the capi tal was completely annihilated. In order to restore and consolidate the authority on the government, the sec ond and third army corps dispatched troops to Constantinople and placed me at the head of these forces, and also the navy. Pardons will be granted to repentant soldiers who submit, but those who continue to rebel will be punished without mercy." ATTACK PLANNED FOR MID NIGHT. London, April 23. A significant dis patch from Constantinople received at Vienna tonight says: "The advance upon Pera and the coast appears to have been begun. Suspicion is cur rent that today's events and the an nouncements are merely feints Intend ed to lull all parties into tranquility. It is believed that action against the Yildiz Kiosk may be taken tonight." A dispatch from Salonika declares after that consultation Schefket Pasha and assembly, with Mohammed Rechad Effendl, the heir-apparent to the throne, decided! to demand that Sheik Ul Islam' Issue a decree proclaiming Mohammed Rechad Effendl sultan. The dispatch adds that an assault on Tildiz Kiosk was arranged to take place at midnight. BEGINNING OF THE BATTLE. Constantinople, April 24.

CAMPAIGN OF THE DEFENSE In theTrial of Patrick Galhoun . .. v Is THE MOTIVE OF GALLAGHER To Be the Principal Point of Attack to Show That the Chief Witness Values His Skin More Than Accuracy of Testimony. San Francisco, April 23. Patrick Calhoun's attorneys partially outlined their attitude today when the cross examination of James L. Gallagher, chief witness for the prosecution, was completed, after two and one-half days of Interrogation. The indicted street railroad president, according to the conclusions drawn from today's pro ceedings, has undertaken to attack the motives of Gallagher and his associate members of the Schmltz board of su pervisors, and will endeavor to show that Gallagher regarded above every thing else the immunity contract whereby he was absolved from legal penalty for the crimes to which. he had confessed. In submitting to the jury what was declared to be conclusive evidence of perjury on Gallagher's part, the de fense referred repeatedly to instances wherein the. testimony of the witness was at variance, with vital utterances made in previous trials. The jury was dismissed while the attorneys argued the right of the de fense to delve into Gallagher's motives, and Jixlge Lawlor finally upheld Heney's contention. In defining his general attitude before the jury left the courtroom, the prosecutor said: "We contend that there are but two connected issues in this sense. First, did Gallagher make an offer to the members of the board after Ruef had authorized Gallagher to do so, and was Ruef acting on behalf of the defend ant? If we cannot prove that Calhoun made this offer to Ruef as the second vital basis of our case, it falls to the ground, and the defendant should be acquitted.' HIGHER LOAN RATE Other Causes Which Depressed the Stock Market. New York, April 23. There was some calling of loans going on today by the banks and a search for renewed accommodations. The violent effect on the call loan rate apparently had the effect of inducing some speculative li quidation. The call loan rate touched 3 per cent; which is higher than since the first week in January. The sales for foreign account over-balances the purchases and some renewed anxiety over the situation in Turkey was in ferred from this and from the weak ness of Turkish bonds in the European markets. The withdrawal of S2.I00.0OO in gold from the sub-treasury for ex port was announced late in the day. The shorts showed some urgency to cover in the late market but the clos ing tone of the market was generally weak and showed the lowest of the day.. Bonds .were irregular. Total sales. $8,070,00.

A Fresh break in wheat occurred shortly after the opening which was very irregular with prices c lower to 3c higher. . The advance at the start was due chiefly to a sharp rally at Liverpool, following considerable weakness earlier In the day. Taking the advance of the English market as an Indication of a rally here, the shorts plunged Into cover on the first trades and prices were given a quick upturn. July opened at to $1.11 and May $1.23 to $1.24H. Three or four of the leading commission houses which were the principal sell ers yesterday renewed their selling operations and the market aoon be came extremely weak. Early buyers switched to the selling side and as the prices declined fresh stop orders were reached which accelerated the down ward movement. Before the decline was checked, July had sold off to $1.08, May to $1.20 and September to $1.01. Most of the crop reports which came in were less bullish. The market closed firm with July at $1.10W. May closed at $1.22 and September at $1.024. Corn prices broke c to 3 c early in the day as a result of unloading of large lines of the May delivery which some of the INDuGED LIQUIDATION leading commission houses had been accumulating for the last few weeks. Initial quotations on May were at '0 to e, July 684 to c. Before the end of the first half hour May dropped to 6c, July to 66c. At the close prices were still to lc below yesterday's close. METALS.

Bradstreet's to morrow will say: "Trade conditions are without much change and irregularity is still the leading feature in business and industrial lines. The results of spring business are, as a whole, dis appointing. There is, however, more doing in wholesale lines for the next fall and winter and the tone in this branch is fairly optimistic." MORE CHEERFUL VIEW. New York, April 23. Dun's will say tomorrow: "Faith in the future is more pronouhcedl than is satisfaction with immediate cond'tions. There Is no more noteworthy feature of the trade outlook than the steadily growing con fidence that, with the tariff discussion out of the way. and with the year's principal crops assured, progress to ward full industrial prosperity will be rapid. Iron and steel conditions re flect a broader demand in some divi sions, notably in pig iron. There Is some improvement In the volume of Inquiries and with raw cot ton at a high level, prices have held firm in the primary cotton goods mar ket. In the woolen goods division, practically all clothing salesmen are now on the road and considerable du plicate business Is already reported. In the hide market pronounced strength has developed in all lines and active buying has been in progress throughout the week. While there have been no further sales of unusual slz in the leather market there is a steady demand from small buyers and the market on the whole shows an Im provement over last month. Prices are firm owing to the rapidly advancing hide market. A LISBON EARTHQUAKE. Lisbon. April 23. A violent shock of earthquake was felt here today. For a time fears were entertained of a repetition of the great earthquake of 1755, which demolished the city.

No one was hurt, but fires broke out and great alarm prevailed. JOHNSON AND O'BRIEN MATCHED Pittsburg, April 23.

He said: "My country is now building four vessels of the Dread naught type. The first one laid down two years ago will be com pleted this year. They are all of 20,000 tons. I think the limit of size will have been reached when war ships reach 25,000 tons. Speed and gunpower were the factors in the Russo-Japanese war. There never was a remote possibility of Japan and the United States becoming em broiled." DEATH OF FORMER SENATOR. Washington. D. C, April 23. For mer United States Senator William A.

Theodore Roosevelt reached the hunting grounds and tonight pre pared to pass his first night in Africa under canvas. A big camp has been established near the railroad station. Last night lions were prowling about in the vicinity of the tents. The coun try is green, owing to recent rains and there is every prospect of good sport.
