TURKEY IS UNPREPARED FOR WAR BUT STILL SUPREMELY CONFIDENT r ASSOCIATED TRESS DISPATCH j ROME, Nov. 7. Dispatches from Constantinople describe the situation there as outwardly much as it was during the ltalkan war.

Disinfecting the I'nion Stock Yards, closed on account ot tne loot anil inoutii disease, is con tinued. If the epidemic docs not spread to other states, it is expected the quarantine will be lifted next week. "If we are thoroughly cleaned up by Wednesday, and if the epidemic does not spread to more stales so ! we can receive shipments of cuttle, we shall apply for a lifting of the quarantine then," said A. G. Leon ard, president of the stock yards. Dr. O. E. Dyson, state veterinarian, said that although the quarantine had been ordered to run until November 16, it would be lifted before that time if it was shown the yards were in fit condition. All other public cattle pens within the stale, including those of East St. Louis, are to be given a clean bill of health as soon as they are dis infected and pronounced free from infection. Every confidence that tin disease is well under control here was expressed alter it was found only a few more suspected cattle had devel oped cases. The new cases were among the prize cattle recentfy exhibited at the Na tional Dairy show here. About thirty out of 800 prize bulls and cows were condemned, but not killed. The owners, who value the cattle at several million dollars, appealed to the department .of agriculture at Washington that special efforts be made to save the stock. Plans were devised to isolate the infected stock and subject them to special treatment for experimental purposes. To Trace Source WASHINGTON, Nov. 7.

The information bureau contends that Gutierrez was elected president of the convention solely to force him to declare either for Villa or Carranza and that he sided with the latter. The telegram, which is said to have been signed also by General Villareal, 'ol. Trevin , Luis Cabrera and Gen. Jesus Carranza, declares the convention act ed illegally in declaring itself the sov ereign power and in naming the pres ident.

TL'CSON, Nov. 7. Dashing down Stone avenue at full speed and fairly jumping into the air when his ma chine struck the raised car tracks at the Congress street crossing.

Raker, speaking of experiences, said was four minutes ahead of the auto record at Deming when he rode over an embankment and reinsured a bad ! knee. Twenty-five miles west of Douglas he took a skidding spill at fifty-five miles an hour, put out his right arm and a twig, the size of a lead pencil, was shoved into his fore arm five inches. He pulled it out. j sot going again and when he reached covered Douglas his right side was ;Dou with blood.

He was forced to bor the official can- irow- money to buy gasoline. Rhodes says he started with distil- llate in mistake for gasoline snd was forced to change three tires. He says he had a good ridcmt his right eye, nose and forehead are- all skinned up. Ashley, the sixteen-year-qld, who is making a great record broke a chain and was forced to chisel it off. He was ahead of Rhodes at the time and says the chain cost him an hour. Highfill, who left Douglas in fourth position, had magneto trouble and was forced to spend an hour at Tombstone working on his ignition. The magneto never worked right since leaving Tombstone and now Highfill is way behind. It is a great I disappointment here where he is a ! great favorite. j Obear limped in ltst at 4:14 and says he had all sorts ot engine trou ble, the worst consisting of valves sticking. He will, however, start for Phoenix with the bunch tomorrow. Ml the riders say the roads are not conducive to jov riding or fast time. iny machines came in with pedals missing and other accessories smasn- d off. Keating of El Taso and Rhodes of Tucson were both held back by punc tures. J Stone avenue was black with peo ple when the racers came dashing into the city. The riders are guests of the Tucson Motorcycle club tonight and are be ing royally entertained at a theater and banquet. All the machines are under guard in Walter Reid's shop which was the checking station. Baker prophesies that he will beat his average time from here to Phoe nix tomorrow. There is great enthusiasm over the automobile race and many bets that the automobiles will not equal Raker's record. Only two riders admit not having suffered bad spills thus far. Baker and Rhodes BISBEE, Nov. 7. Heralded by dust clouds, Baker, on his Indian, drilled into liisbee ahead of all entrants this morning. On the road, just outside of Bisbee, he passed Rhodes, the man who beat him from El Paso into Doug las and climbed from tail-ender to first position. He also made three minutes over Rhodes. Rhodes left Douglas at 7 o'clock, and Baker followed him in five min utes. Then they came on at inter vals of five minutes Ashley, Highfill, Bennett, Weyand, Obear, Oechsner and Keating the last leaving at 7:40. In the twenty-seven miles from Douglas to Bisbee only two machines changed places. Baker passed Rhodes to first position. Bennett dropped four notches, to next to last position. All the machines were having more or less trouble along the route, some with their engines and some with tires. Bennett lost his place while fixing punctures. Baker and Rhodes changed places because Baker's engine trouble was sooner found than was that of Rhodes. The first three machines were three minutes apart in Bisbee, and they furnished some excitement to the sev eral hundred spectators.

Devil Derkuni, were about all that could be learned of the Yuma-Caliente stretch of the San Diego-to-the-board-of-tradu mo torbike race last night. As the elec tion chaps would say, "The returns are coming in slowly." And that Isn't all. Hark! Out upon the nicey clay roads of West Maricopa county, the gentle rain was falling. Far up in the pine clad hills about Prescott, some more of the same. Result: two feet of II2( in the Hassayampa, mud roads in rather indefinite locations, perhaps a repetition of the railroad-riding stunt of 1912 when Wayland Wood had to adopt a mud scow and hike to the Hassayamp to hold the Los Angeles Phoenix autos while the river sub sided. Boido's performance was in keep ing with his scintillating ride of Fri day. And they do say around and about that the little husky did some head-work, too. They figure that he took to the edge of the mesa and let the rain go hang, while the other riders, following him at various in tervals and not being hep to the sit uation, got the full deficit of the gooey going. Of course this was within Boido's province. He was breaking no rule not even a rule of good sportsman ship but it gives him a lead that practically amounts to a deed in fee simple to the second annual chug chariot chase. The boob system of getting news in and out of Agua Caliente resulted in no one getting a very good idea of what happened yesterday3. We learned in a short wire from Checker Charlie Gardiner, who rode Boido's old road ster to Sentinel, that "Only six racers have checked. The race is about like a boat race on account of the heavy rains. Boido and Holmes are in good shape. Boido says he will beat Der kum's time." "Just this and nothing more!" But the race can be summarized as fol lows from unofficial information re ceived here yesterday: Harry Crandall, who is riding Re publican Harley No. 2, outstripped Derkum and Smith and checked in right back of Boido and Holmes, who left one and two at Yuma. Crandall and Boido are the youngest motor cvcle racers in the world, both be ing 17, with Crandall about two months the older. Left Arr.

He has failed to straighten a tangle that occurred over Berg and House, and they were reported to have checked in at Sentinel at the times I have credited them at Agua Caliente in the above table. Probably most of the figures will not be acurate until corrected by the checking sheets which will be in today. There were eleven machines out of Yuma yesterday morning. Five of them, ridden -by Derkum, Artley, Wat son, Franzen and Smith, have not been heard from at all, though most of them are probably at Agua Caliente or some namtet in me moum-aum the time this is being written. o RUSSIAN GENERAL TAX ASSOCIATED PP.ESS DISPATCH PETROGRAD, Nov. 7.
