SAN 1'KANCISCO. Aug. 20.—Ten
thousand survivors of the civil war
passed in review, matching to the mar
tial tunes that inspired them to en
deavor forty years ago. Above tile na
tional colors, borne by every marcher,
proudly floated torn and tattered Hags.
These, with empty sleeves and limping
gait, were clotiii'#t reminders of the
sorrow and glory of war. Vnlike the
parade of the previous day, tile quick
marching line of youth, this procession
was the measured and steady tread of
age. As the different divisions march
ed along waves of sentiment passed
over marchers and spectators. There
were many still vigorous in line, but
they waited for their weaker comrades,
and tlie column halted often on its two
mile course.
In tig1 long line were men from ev

Governor Tells of Third Set of Twins.
INDIANAPOLIS. 1ml.. Aug. 20.—Gov
ernor Durbin received a telegram from
Stephen A. Beeves of New Albany an
nouncing that Beeves is the father ot
a third pair of twins. “They arrived
this morning and are the third consecu
tive brace. The mother and twins are
doing well,” wired the joy tip I father.
The governor ordered Secretary Lock
wood to inclose the communication
from Beeves in a letter to President
Roosevelt. The governor's letter to the
president called attention to the dis
patch from Beeves and said that it
furnished one more striking instance of
how strenuously opposed to “race sui
cide” are the good Indiana people.

LONDON, Aug. 20.—The Italian am
bassador here lias received a dispatch
from Rome, announcing that an Ital
ian squadron laid been ordered to
Macedonian waters to "watch events.”
The embassy officials were unable to
say whether it was a result of Russia
sending a squadron to Turkish waters
or not.
Admiral Doinvllle, commanding the
British Mediterranean fleet, now olV
Portugal, lias received urgent orders to
detach some vessels to the neighbor
hood of Salonika immediately.
It Is learned in official quarters that
the action of Russia in ordering a na
val squadron to Turkish waters may
be speedily followed by important joint
aumii tin- |iou ^1 « i..
Communications are at present being
exchanged between the powers relative
to a joint naval demonstration before
The final determination will depend
largely upon Russia, but if a joint
demonstration is determined upon tlie
fleets of England, France and Austria
will certainly co-operate, and it is prob
able that tlie fleets of all the other Eu
ropean powers having Turkish inter
ests, except possibly Germany, which
throughout has not favored taking En
ergetic steps against Turkey, will take
part in the demonstration.
In the meantime tlie Russian squad
ron will not proceed to Constantinople,
as has been reported, but will rendez
vous off a small port of the vilayet of
Adrianople, above tlie entrance of the
Bosporus. For the present this squad
ron has no orders to assume an aggres
sive course. Its action will depend on
Turkey’s fulfillment of the terms of
Russia’s final demands in connection
with the assassination of Consul Rost
kovski. Tlie punishment of a number
of tlie parties implicated is not consid
ered to be full compliance with the
terms of the demands, which include
an adequate indemnity.
Besides the Iiostkovski Incident, the
proposed joint naval action before Sa
lonika is due to tlie earnest representa
tions of tlie foreign consuls at Saloni
ka, who set forth that their lives are in
The assassination of M. ltostkovski is
giving such emphasis to tlie statement
of the consuls that consideration of a
joint naval demonstration of sufficient
strength to impress Turkey with the
necessity for taking decisive action
looking to tlie maintenance of order in
Macedonia is now in progress. The ex
changes of communications have
shown that Russia and Austria con
tinue to co-operate in the action taken
toward Turkey.

CHICAGO. Aug. 20.—Plans for com
bining farmers, fruit growers, dairy
men and all other producers of natural
food products into one national orguni
station were considered at a conference
here between representatives of several
farmers' co-operative associations. This
movctnent lias for its purpose the n. |i
tabling of prices, the control of distri
bution of products and the saving of
large sums of money paid.in commis
sions. The plan under consideration
contemplates the erection of grain ele
vators and cold storage warehouses in
all parts of the country where products
may be held if necessary until such
times as they can be marketed at a fair
price. As a result of the conference it
was decided to hold a farmers' con von
tion in Chicago Sept. S to consider de
tailed plans of organization.
Progressive farmers are all invited to
attend, so that one of the present plans
may be adopted or that from all of
them one may be devised that will be
most acceptable to tin* agricultural iu
forests and in which all workers for
the upbuilding of the country can unite.
The call is sign d by Robert Linblom,
president of the Farmers’ -National Co

of Equity, Indianapolis, and 1>. L. Wil
