All Go Out Concerning a much mooted ques tion the attorney general of the ' state has given the following opin ion: Under an act of 1901 in regard to cities (acts of 1901, p. 114) all coun cilmen in office go out of office at the next city election, and successors must then be elected for those who were elected for four years, as well as for those whose terms would ex pire in 1902 under the old law. "The legislature, acting within power which the supreme court has recognized, reduced the terms of counci'men elected in 1900 for four years. It is well settled by the supreme court that where the term of an officer is fixed by the constitu tion, the legislature can not re duce it; but that where the office has been created by statute, the term may be reduced or the office abol ished in the discretion of the legisla ture."

HERE'S A GOOD 01 Turks Say That Miss Stone Permitted Herself to Be Abducted. ALL OUT OF SYMPATHY Her Regard For the Macedonian Committee They Say Prompted Her Part iu the AfLur. A Story Vnm Which Comment It Superfluous BuiirarUu Politics Mined I" p. Vienna, Oct. 19. An extraordinary version of the Stone aMuctlou come today from Constantinople. It ts de clared In Turkish official circles that Miss Stoue srunathize3 with the Maeedoulau coiuuiitti e and herself agreed to the kidnapping, so that ran-. Bom would be pnid to the committee. Commeut upon thus story Is quite su perfluous. ,, M. Saratoff, Bulgarian minister ot the Interior, and for the time In-iny minister of foreign affairs, addressed a note to Mr. lickenson. United State consul general at Constantinople. a few days aj;o. In which, after com plaining that the consul general had expressed dissatisfaction with th measures of the Bulgarians had takea against the kidnappers of Miss Stout;, he strongly protested against his gov ernment leiHg held responsible for a crime committed on Turkish territory and declared that In order to gn:ir Itself agaiust a serloua and unmerited accusation the Bulgarian government had resolved, should the roblter band try to cross the Bulgarian frontier, or succeed In stealing into Bulgaria, t have It mercilessly pursued and aui bllated by Bulgarian troops. "We will not entpr Into any negoti ations whatever for paying rnnjin. said M. Saratoff. "as we don't want precedents established for any robber that may Infest the nHslilK-rhmwi t turn to Bulgaria whenever this see:: to their advantage. We are Mrui'y d e termined to make nn example whifit will deter robliern from repe-i:i:if such siH'culfithnis. It will then n longer lie possible to accuse Iin1j;:r':a of liarlKH'iiig secret eoinifllttet whi-a organize for : kidnapping forcincru lis. Turkey and removing them fj l:tt-' garla. there peacefully to enjuy t! ransom tuey extort. From the almve if uiny be r. g'trrlfd aa convincing proof that Bulgnria i shielding the Macedonian committee and that the Sofia correiondent were correct when declaring that Macedonians, disguised as Turka, hart kidnapped Miss Stone and that a regu lar game Is lielng -played by Bulgaria troops on one side and Turkish troop on the other side of the frontier, eaek side trying to smuggle prisoners over the border in order that the ransom pa (4 by st Minn ntal Americans may be re covered, as the Bulgarians wish, front Turkey, and that some prisoners, but for this farce, could be produced at any moment. The right course now Is to not pay ransom, but hold Bulgaria responsi ble for every hair of Miss Stone's bead. Those who know the facts see no rea son to anticipate any danger to her. A frofta View of lr. Sofia, Oct. 19. Four thousand Bul garian and Turkish troops have Ix-en occupied in the effort to obtain Miss Stone's release. It is believed here that her release would have ' b-ea effected bot for Mr. Dickinson's re fusal to offer her captors more than as ordinary pour 4oire. Mr. Dickinson's extraordinary' action is regarded aa suicidal. A large sum mast be paid te the brigands, as otherwise Miss Stone's life will tie sacrificed. If Mr. Dick inson desires vengance on the brigands, the woman must be ransomed first. France Will Be Firm. Paris, Oct. 19.
