waste of human life In. Europe
alone averages between 18,060,000 and

thousand years may have elapsed- since
the- battle raged around the walls of
Troy, and In that time probably the
Inconceivable number of 1,200,000.000
men have perished in order to enforce
sundry systems of politics, to decide
the ownership of some few square miles
of land, or to avenge the wounded pride
of a ruler or of a ruling estate.
If every man, woman and child now
living on this planet were massed tofether
on a vast plain, and by their
e.ues were ranged all the dead who
have perished In war, the two forccs
would nearly equal one another. If
every human being on earth were

ful plague, the low* would not be more
than that which; the weapons of the
soldier have accomplished in the past.
la the wars- of the last century no
less than 20,000,000 men were killed, and
lit least as many women and children

wars of the flrst half of this century
slew 20.000,000 men, at a cost of J6.850,(M).000.

Washington .Star: President J. B.
Anseli. of fho University of Michigan,
who for more tluin a year has been the
United Status minister to Turkey, was
umons the passengers of the Teutonic,
which reached Ne;v York iast night.
In the course of a conversation with a
Tribune reporter, while the Teutonic
wa* making her way up the bay last
night. Mr. Angell eald<:
"There is little new that T.can say regarding
the situation In Turkey. Perfect
tranquility prevailed while I was
there, and r.o massacre* occurred in
Armenia nor In the Balkans."
"Is it true that the United States Intends
to enforce the payment of Its
f.aimj' ny & demons?ration 01 lorcer:
M ' \wM was asked.
I hav?? no-t heard of it." he replied.
"We made these claims, as did the
other puwer*, for damages inflicted by
the Turks upon our missionaries. The
sultan, however, refuses to recognise
these claims, and denies hi? responsibility
upon a plea that Is unsatlsfactory
to the powers and to the United
States. Whether an attempt wlH be
made to collect these claim* by force i
of arms or a demonstration I* a matter
for the government alone to decide.
When mora', pressure 1p brought to bear
upon him the sultan declares that the
damages were the result of a mob riot,
and that, therefore, he Is not responsible.
Indeed, ho has actually told the
European powers that instead of making
claim* against hi in he is entitled to
Indemnities against them because Europeans

government. I placed tliat view before
the sultan strongly, but the answer he
gave me was the same "as before, and
he refused to make any specific answer
to the specific matters which I laid before
him. It seems to me that an
armed demonstration Is the only means
whereby the Turkish government can
be made to make the restitution asked
"What wltt be the outcome of the
Cretan troubles?" *
"Ah, the powere only wish you could
.tell them." he replied, "but 1 observe
that the sultan is yielding to their request.
Whether Turkey will lose Crete
or not It Is Impossible to 'say now, but
If the powers ray she must she will
have to relinquish It."
While he was In Turney Mr. AngeU
frequently saw the sultan. Describing:
him, he said:
"The sultan is a man of decided ability,
possesses great shrewdness and
plAys his policy well of pitting the Jealousy
of one nation against another.
Every one concedes that he is an able
man. He Is the governor of his people
and) the most absolute despot in the
world. It Is he who rules, not his cabinet.
Since the Greek war his power
over his subjects has increased tremendour!y.
He Is considered by his
people to be the relijfious head of the
nation as well as the head of the army.
The soldiers are all Mohametans, and
no one of any other religion can enter
the army of Turkey excepting foreign
officers especially chosen by the sultan,
who is called Caliph by the people since
the war with Greece. There will be no
religious war In Turkey while the powers
are watching. The sultan has too
much cunning to precipitate trouble.
Turkey can scarcely be called "The Sick
Man of Europe* after the Impetus given
to the country oy the Greek war. It Is
now possessed of a powerful army,
fully 300,000 well-equipped men. They

German officers, and their weapons are
of the most Improved and modern
make. The Turkish navy can best be
describee as a .ub. The sultan watched
the war betweon'Spain and the United
States very closely, and the impression
made by our nayy won his respect and
admiration. Hi? often spoke to me
about our car.non and ships, and he
may in the ndar future order some
ships built hery. I told him that the
cannon and ships were all right, but he
would huve to look to the men behind
the guns. I sijld this because I know

one noon recently at Santa Catalina Island,
California. The boatmen who owr
the stands along shore, and who have a
keen eye out for a prosperous-looking
visitor with a rod, -lid not give him a
second glance, a dork-eyed tuna flsher

The Burlington August statement rurnlshed
alever to-day to carry prices upward.
and this development was the
only factor of consequence bearing upon
the general situation. It is true that
the Industrials, to a considerable extent,
dominated the market, but speculation
showed a tendency to ignore fluctuations
in this group. /This circumstance
caused some favorable comment,
as did also the fact that the general
list lapsed into dullness, and showed
comparative steadiness when concerted
attacks on the specialtleo were made.
London quotations indicated a more favorable
disposition towards Americans
abroad, which was reflected in good
buying here throughout the day. Operations
by the bear faction were renewed
in various directions, with Manhattan
Kwming iv inc uuiiu ^uinu.w, \>i wvu.au,
was the most vulnerable point, and soon
yielded to 125. Covering of shorts put
the price back to 128%, and intermediate
fluctuations between that and the close
#t 128% were accompanied by violent
dips. The stock, generally speaking,
showed & better tone, and ended for the
first time this week at a net advance. An
analysis of tbe Burlington figures proved
that the fears concerning It entertained
yesterday were groundless, and
there was a brisk movement to cover,
which advanced the price almost 2
points. The gross Increase was realized
solely from the passenger traffic, the
freight earnings continuing low, owing
to the light grain movement. The management
pursued the policy adopted by
other important lines of expending a
inpffA norc?>r>taire of income in better
menis charged to operating expenses,
and this division wiped out over half of
of the grow return, leaving, however, a
surplus Increase over all charges of
J73.99". The bears had counted confidently
on accomplishing liquidation In
the railways on the publication of the
report, and its good reception In the
street put them to rout, and large lines
were covered. Prominent Interests were
ranged on the long side for a while, and
the sentiment became more cheerful.
Call money rates sagged to 2% per cent
late In the day. The action of the government
in anticipating the November
interest, coupled with the early receipts
of a large amount of gold in transit,
were responsible for the decline In rates.
Time money was also quotably easier for
rh?? short p.- norlods. nnd some nrlme
mercantile paper wan discounted at 3^
per cent. Considerable pressure was
concentrated against Sugar as the day
drew to a close, but the stock soon recovered,
and ended tlrm, in common
with the remainder of the list, which
established slight net gains.
Bonds ruled fairly active, but irregular.
Total sales, $1,938,000. Government
bonde were a trifle easier, the 3's reacting

CHICAGO?A break of %c took place
in September wheat to-day. The weakness
in the cash article affected futures,
December closing at lc decline.
"Weak outside cash markets, heavy primary
receipts and reselling of wheat
here by New York ail counted against
the price. Corn declined and
oats Provisions were weak
early but closed stcudy at small advances.
The opening In wheat rather Indicated
a bull market, although it was difficult
to find any explanation of the
apparent inclination among traders t??
buy beyond the fact that Liverpool did
not show the decline naturally looked
for lifter yesterday's break here. There
were numerous fair sized buying orders
at the start, with a scarcity of offerings,
the result being that December
opened at G:!*i<U>63"6c, yesterday's closing
price, with 61c offered almost Immediately.
But the tone of the market
soon changed. Northwest receipts
wore liberal, Minneapolis and Duluth
reporting 1,130 cars, convpared with 031
last week and 1,019 a year ago. Chicago
receipts were 298 cars, considerably
overrunning estimates. Of this
number ll? were of contxxug grade. Receivers
said the country was respond

. correspond Ing Increase of offering* tin,
der which prices gradually declined,
. December netting down to f?4Vfcc #lx?ut
an hour from the start. In the meantime
September had begun to show
' radical weakneoa. Canh demand was
! reported poor and primary receipts
1.668,000 bushels, were 400.000 bushels
1 larger than a year ago. This was partly
offset by heavy clearance* w inch
wore put at Wo,000 bushi'ls, and complaints
of th?- Russian wheat yield. Hut
' extreme weakness of outside cash mnr1

rrMlnn which the nhinrp In September
started brought the price down to &'* .
t The market gttw heavy toward the
elope. Solllnff pressure waa renewed In
a degree but t?e weak cash situation
was very effectual In keeping buyers
away. and prices kept declining to the
end. At the close December was bringing
6;fc6&7H?.. practical!)' bottom flcures
for the day. September showed at
ont time a break of 3Vic. selling: down
to Wfcc from 68c, the opening price. It
closed at 63c.
Corn was weak all day, liquidation,
mostly from elevator people and receivers,
keeping prices on the down
grade. Cash Inquiry was fair but not
much businees was done. Receipts
were liberal. 7S5 cars. Seaboard reported
38 loads- for export. The market
was weakest In the afternoon, when
sympathy with wheat caused general
selling. December ranged from 29%c
to 29ftc, and closed %GKc lower at
The market for oats was eaay, prices
being Influenced by wheat and corn.
September holders sold September and
boeught December In limited quantities.
Trade as a whole was light. Receipts
were 396 car?. Clearances were
light. May ranged from 23%c to 22%c,
and closed %@%c lower at 22%c.
Provisions in view of the weakness
of the grain markets were surprisingly
steady. Liberal hog receipts caused
slightly lower prices at the opening.
There was more or less short selling In
expectation that the break in grain
would affect prices, but all offerings
were taken and the steadiness the
market displayed caused general coverlng
later. At the close January pork
was 7ftc higher at 19 12V4; January lard
W*c higher at 14 90. and January ribs
unchanged at $4 72Mr.
