On P.ehalf of Turkey Begs
Pardon of Triple Entente
for Warlike Operations of
Fleet Against Russia in
the Black Sea.
France, Russia and Great
Britain Likely Not Only
to Demand Reparation,
Hut That Entire Fleet Be
Put Out of Commission.
LONDON, Nov. 2. The g:
vizier of Turkey has apologized
behalf of his government for
warlike operations of the Turkish
fleet under German commanders
"n I
the Black Eeu, but it is stated au
thoritatively this evening that the
Torte will have to go very much far
ther than this before the powers of
the triple entente will agree to re
sume friendly relations with the Ot
toman government. There is ever"
reason to believe that despite the
apology of the grand vizier, which it
is understood comes from the peace:,.
party in the Turkish cabinet, it may
not be adhered to by Envnr Pasha,
minister of war, and his young Turk
followers. France, Russia and Great
Britain not only will demand repara
tion for the warlike operations of the
Turkish fleet in the Black set, but
will insist that Turkey's entire flet,
or at any rate the cruisers Goeben,
Breslau ad Harrnidiehm be put out
of commission until after the war,
Turkey's security being guaranteed
in the meantime.
The dispatch received from Bor
deaux by the Central News says:
"The French government issued a
statement saying the Turkish gov
ernment in reply to the note of the
triple entente powers, confined itself
to proposing the recall of the Turk
ish warships to the Dardanelles, and
expressed a desire to remain at
peace with Russia, France and Eng
land. But in default of the dis
missal of the German officers in the
Ottoman service, the governments'
triple entente could not hope that
Turkey would be able to maintain
the passive attitude she has offered
to adopt.
This would give Russia such superi
ority in the Black Sea there would be
no danger of Turkish raid3. It is sug
gested also that demobilization of the
Turkish army be demanded, which
would mean that those troops which
have crossed the Egyptian frontier
must be withdrawn. However, as the
terms of Turkey's apology, which ap
parently was made in London, have
not been published, and must be con
sidered by the entente powers before an
apology is accepted or refused, there
seems to be a long way to go before
the diplomatic relations between the
Ottoman government and the allies can
be resumed. An added difficulty to the
situation is that the ambassadors of
the powers have left Constantinople,
which will make it troublesome to as
certain whether the whole Turkish cab
inet concurs in any agreement reached.
Meanwhile a report comes from Con
stantinople of the seizure of another
Russian steamer and also that Bul
garia, which has been asked to choose
the side on which she will fight, had
commenced to mobilize her second line
of troops.
The Ottoman government, not hav
ing thought it to be its duty to give,
by dimissing Gernwn officers, sin
cerity to its intentions when re
quested, the ambassadors of France,
Russia and Great Britain, in con
formity with Instructions from their
governments, had demanded their
passports from the grand vizier and
have left Turkey.
From the impressions received
from Northern Africa it appears tbe
Mussulman government intends in no

Mark Smith Slips One Over
On Republicans Of Tucson
(Special to The Republican.)
TUCSON, Nov. 2. That Mark Smith
Is desperate is evidenced by the fact
that I was caught in an attempt to
stop a rival meeting in his home town
tonight. The republicans had engaged
the Twelfth Infantry band from No
gales for the armory meeting, but that
organization was prevented from com
ing by the following telegram from
the department commander at Fort
Sam Houston to the commanding of
ficer nt Nogales:
"The war department says Con
Is Declared Militaiy Area
and Peaceful Vessels En
tering Will Be Exposed
to Dangers From Mines
and Warships.'
Germans Continue to Strike
Hard Blows on Allies'
Lines in Their Endeavor

LONDON. Nov. 2. The entire North
Set his been declared military area,
and merchant vessels entering it will be
exposed to the gravest dangers from
the mines and from warships which are
searching vigilantly night and day for
suspicious craft. This action was taken
as a reply to the laying of mines by
the Germans in the waters of the
north of Ireland.
The secretary of the admiralty to
night said:
"During the last week the Germans
have scattered mines indiscriminately
in the open sea on the main trade route
from America to Liverpool, via the
north of Ireland.
"Peaceful merchant ships have al-
ready been blown up with loss of life
by this agency. These mines could
not have been laid by any German ship
Thev have been laid by some
merchant vessel flying a neutral flag
which has come along the trade
routes as for purposes, of peaceful
The Germans continue to strike har.d
blows on the allies' lines in their en
deavor to get around to the coast. Thus
far they have found every road blocked
but apparently disregarding losses,
they continue to attack. Floods, the
Belgian army and the. British fleet hav
ing barred their way southwest ward
along the coast, the Germans are now
striking on the line stretching from
Ypres in Belgium, to La Bassee, farther
south, in France, but seemingly with
no more success. The stuliborness of
the fighting along this line may be
gathered from the fact that the town
of Messines, which the Germans now
occupy, has been taken and retaken no
less than four times since Saturday,
each time with enormous losses in
killed and wounded. Attacks also ha-ve
been made along the entire battle front
as far east as the Vosges region, but
according to French report, with the
Germans having no more success than
in the northwest.
The belief is growing here and also
has been expressed by those returning
from Belgium, that the Germans are
making their last'ffort to get through
to the coast and that if it fails they
will fall back to the positions which
they have prepared in central Belgium.
Although fighting continues on the
East Prussian frontier, in Poland, and
Galicia there is no important change
in the situation and it is believed none
is likely until the Russian armies come
up with the Germans, who are retiring
from the Vistula toward the Warthe
River, f m this river it is considered
likely another big battle will be fought.

gressman Smith complains that the
twelfth infantry band goes to Tucson
tomorrow. Do not allow it to go. And
if it has already gone, recall it. Do
not allow It to be used by outsiders
during political campaigns."
Smith had engaged the only Tucson
band and a certificate from the Tuc
son Central Trades Council had been
furnished the colonel at Nogales that
the military band would not compete
with the local union band. On three
successive occasions on the last night
of campaigns the band has been used
for every Nogales political meeting.

Find Themselves Many
Miles From Inhabited
Country and Deprived of
Leave, Which Lngenders
Growing Discontent.
. OTTAWA. Nov. 2. Canada's
next contingent of soldiers will be
13,000 in compliance with the Brit
ish war office recpiest, completing
tiie second Canadian army division.
Members of the
Nov. 2.-
are anything but happy in their camps
on the lonely plains of Salisbury. They
find distances to the inhabited part of
the country to be great nd the par
simony of their commamkirs In grant
ing leave lias added to their discontent.
English-born members of the contin
gent are especially anxious to visit rel
atives and friends, but few of them
have hc."D. granted lc.TYe.
The men also missed the glorious re
ception promised tliem on their arrival
here. On disembarking they were hur
ried by night to the Salisbury plains,
arriving there just after ilawn after the
wearisome march of eight miles across
the monotonous downs.
After the camp was pitched the sol
diers used their few hours of leave in a
general exodus to the nearest village
where their celebrations became so
boisterous that their new
found liberty
was soon cut short by the provost
guard, which cleared all the village of
every man in uniform, not even the of
ficers being exempt.
The feeding of the Canadian army
ha.s also proved a prolific source of
complaint which began before the
transports were out of sight of land.
The soldiers assert the stewards were
allowed to hoard all the dainties
board and sell them at exorbitant
rates. The same complaint is being
made against the mess contrac tors at
the Salisbury plain camps.
No huts have yet been prepared for
the Canadians and the small conical
tents in which from six to eight men
are crowded, are not proving weather
proof. The men resent the idea of
spending the winter on the plains and
are clamoring to be taken to the front
as soon as possible.

KL PASO, Nov. 2. Mexico is a
republic with two claimants for the
presidency. Kulalio Gutierrez, nam
ed yesterday ,n the Aguas Calicnlos
convention, was elected to serve
twenty days, the shortest term in the
history of any republic. Carranza,
still in power at Mexico City, his
pot recognized Gutierrez as his suc
cessor, although the convention ac
cepted the resignation of Carranza
and rb-posed Villa, in accordance wit h
Carranza.' s terms. Reports indicate a
renewal of actual conflict between
the forces of Carranza and Villa.
It is reported from Mexico City
that Carranza said he is disposed to
fulfill his promise to give up the
executive power and his command as
soon as tlie convention has fixed
the form of provisional government
and Villa and Zapata have relin
quished their commands. He also
asks tin explanation of tho motives
of the convention in accepting hii
resignation. Gutierrez's short term
vas given because tho Zapata dele
Mates weie not authorized to vote,
and the twenty days is to Vllow
them to get instructions from Z.i
puta. General Gutierrez is known
throughout th i-nustitutionali :t army
as the tiger of conception of Del ( ro.
'from the little town between Saltillo
and San Luis Polosi, where lie has
made his home.
When Gutierrez allied .himself with
the movement started by Carranza
against the lluerta 'administration, he
succeeded in raising several hundred
men from among his neighbors in the
northern part of the state of San
Luis I'otosi, but was unable to arm
them. But a handful of his men had
j rifles or ammunition, but in suite of
this fact lie is credited with inflicting
severe losses and damage to the fed
eral troops sent to defend Monterey
and Saltillo.
Gutierrez and his men succeeded in
seizing a uantity of dynamite from
mining companies operating south of
Saltillo. With this as his only wea
pon, he held UIi or destroyed dozens
of troolls and suimiIv trains oarrvin"
reinforcements and ammunition to the
federal commanders. From these
trains he armed and equipped a force
with which he inflicted decisive de
feat on the federal command at Van
egas last June.

Twenty New Haven
Men Are Indicted
In Federal Court
NEW YORK, Nov. . Within a few
hours after handing down tlie federal
grand jury indictments accusing twen
ty present and former directors, and
the former general counsel of the New
Haven railroad, with criminal violation
of the Sherman anti-trust law, four de
fendants entered pleas of not guilty be
fore United States Judge Foster and
were released on Vends, It is reported
tonight that several named in the in
dictments would claim immunity on
the ground that they had appeared as
witnesses in the investigation of the
interstate commerce commission.
The indictments were the outcome of
a grand jury inquiry which has been in
progress here for several weeks.
Charles S. Mellen, former president of
the New Haven, the principal witness
in tlie inquiry, was not indicted. His
name appears however, in the list of
officers and former directors mention
ed as "conspirators". The late J. P.
Morgan is named in this bill as one
of the "conspirators".
Bench warrants were issued for the
arrest of those indicted, at the request
of the federal district attorneys. George
F. Baker, rated in recent years next to
the late Mr. Morgan as the leading fi
nancial power of Wall Street: I-ewis
Cass Ledyard, one of the company's
best known attorneys; and Charles M.

company, appeared personally in court

Places Blame for Expensive

Form of Government a no
Disclaims Powers Attrib-
. uted to Mavor.
To My critics:
Muih criticism has been made in the
city as to why tlie mayor and com
missioners do not do this or that, inso
far as the routine and expense of the
city government are concerned. Thi.s
criticism is in many instances malici
ously made, and in some instances be
cause of ignorance of tlie 1'aets.
Phoenix has what is known as a
managerial form of government. Neith
er the mayor nor e"mir.is.sioners have
any power wliatever except in a legis
lative way when requested by the city
My personal fight for years has been
against the class of legislation such as
tlie Phoenix city charter, that is. a gov-
errniont:,! doctitn'nt slium"'''1 to
he-.,, miole he . committee 123. bu t
ill fact really made by the very few.
It is not open, fair and honest h'gisla
tion. Research during the formation of
this charter reveals 'the fact that J.' L.
I!. Alexander, at present candidate for
the attorney g ueralship of Arizona on
the progressive ticket was one of the
strongest opponents against this form
of c harter, for as he said at that time,
it wa.i. in fa.'t, practically the same as
the Al'-able form of government that
has been in f' rce in Mexico for years.
Personally, I stand for a straight
commission form of government, and
at the last meeting of the city com
mission, at tlie request of the commis
sioners, appointed a committee to meet
with the mayor and commissioners l"
change thin form of chapter into a
strictly commission form of govern
ment, that is, :i city government in
which the mayor and commissioners
are supreme. This amendment will be
presented to the people of Phoenix for
their vote and it will be up to them
whether they adopt a straight commis
sion form of government, or whether
they allow it to remain as it i.s.
If elected governor, no such form of
charter as tlie present city charter of
Phoenix for any city of Arizona will
tret by me until the people adopting the
same are fully warned of its several
"ring'' provisions. The present city
charter of Phoenix, I am reliably in
formed, Wits tlie most strongly advo
cated ami espoused by the present state
chairman of the republican party.
From a governmental .standpoint, the
present city .charter of Phoenix, as
above sttited, gives neither tilt1 mayor
nor commissioners any power what
evor., except to grant or refuse the city
manager any ordinance he may request.
Insofar as the actual governing of the
city is concerned, the mayor nor com
missioners have any power, and inso
far as the office of mayor is concerned,
under this present city charter, such
an office is a farce.
These being fac ts, in behalf of my
self and the city commissioners, we
disclaim and resent any responsibility
resting upon us and made against us
as being in any way responsible for the
management of the city.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 2 The pres
ident, the attorney general ami Sec
retary Garrison discussed at a long

federal troops into the strike zone
ir. Hartford Valley, Ark., to. assist
United Suites District Judge You-
Imans in enforcing he orders of his
court. Bloodshed and rioting are al
most uncontrollable as the situation
pictured to officials here in dis-
patches from
the strike region.
Judge Youmans, according to re
ports reaoching officials here, has
been unable to rely on some of his
deputy marshals to preserve order,
lie couhl make no appeal to the statu
authorities, as following tlie recent
labor troubles the mine properties
were placed in the hands of a receiv
er in the federal court of the western
district of Arkansas over which
Judge Youmans presides. Tho blood
of several deputy marshals has been
shed in the past few weeks, and it

forcible and successful attempts on

o,, terrorized hv the situation, anil
call for aid from the military has
been suggested as the only sure
means of enforcing law and order.
Should the president act on the
