Board Trades "Mount
Venion "for Home of
Dr. Hugh M. Taylor.
Property Transfer, When For?
mally Approved, Will Enable
Building Committee to Award
Contract So That Construc?
tion May Begin Not Later
Than November i.
n became known yesterday alter a
meeting o: the board or director* that
the Young Women's Christian Asso?
ciation has virtually closed a deal
whereby the property owned by the
association on the southwest corner ot
Franklin end Third Streets is to be
trsded (or the lot at ? North FlXth
Street, now owned by Hush M. Taylor.
Xf this transaction is carried through,
as appears certain, the new home of
the Young Woman's Christian Asso?
ciation, for which a building fund was
tubscrlbed lest year, wiil be erected on
Fifth Street Instead of Franklin.
Berore the transfer can take place,
a meeting of the association as a whole
must be held to ratify the action of the
board, and such a meeting has been
? ailed for October 22. The board was
unanimous in spproving the building
committees decision that the Fifth
Street property is a much more desir?
able site for the new building than
that now occupied by the Mount Ver
con. Dr. Taylor'a lot. measuring eighty
feet on Fifth Street with a depth of
110 feet. Is better suited to the require?
ments than the Franklin Street loca?
tion, which has a frontage on Franklin
of only fifty-two feet and a depth of
150 feet. In the exchange. Dr. Taylor
will pay the association a bonus of 92.
May Bsgls Work November L.
As the ratlfcation of this deal by
the association la assured, the build?
ing committee is making preparations
to begin censtruction work about No?
vember 1. Before that time. Nolan A
Baskerrille, architects, must modify
the tnntstlve plans for the building
that was to have been erected at Tblrd
and Franklin 8treets. The architects
ran round out their plans In detail,
while the contractor who buys the
present house on the Fifth Street aito
Is demolishing it. Dr. Taylor's old
residence is unoccupied, and tbo asso?
ciation ean take possession the minute
the papers making the transfer legal
are Signed.
There hsa been rome dissatisfaction
with the Mount Vernon looation as a
home for the Toung Women's Christian
Association for more than one reason,
and the building committee began to
look around for more suitable property
rs soon as It developed that possession
could not be obtained for a year. The
present occupant of the house has a
lease which will not expire until the
rail of 1913. and the association did not
feel financially able to buy the lease,
SSda if this could have been arranged.
Feemd Hagar Bel* tie*.
From the very'nature of the pur?
pose for yhich the structure was des?
tined, the building committee felt It?
self limited to the area between
Broad and Casg Streets and Adams
*nd Sixth Street in the search tor a
site. Finally it was learned that Dr.
Taylor's home was on the market and
consultation between the committee
and the architects and the owner re
salted In a tentative agreement to
trade. Messrs. Nolan and Baskervllle
were confident that a ver;.- fine build?
ing, for probably less money, could
l>e erected on Fifth Street, and the
< omralttee promptly called a meeting
of the directors.
When the plan was laid before the
directors yesterday afternoon at the
meeting In the chapel of the Presby?
terian Publishing House, it received
prompt approval. It was first thought
that the proper alley exits could not
be obtained for the Fifth Street build?
ing, but it was found upon examina?
tion that a right of way for an alley
opening on Fourth Street could ho
had. There ia already a blind alley
On the northern line of the property.
There seems no doubt that the neces?
sary ratification from the association
will be forthcoming. '
SUadj Owe Tear bfewee.
While tha plans of the association
were so unsettled It waa of course
v? possible t* award the contract, but
the committee has been making In
rentlgatloas and will he able to r#
easasj bids and make the award with?
in a few weeks after the transfer is
made. If work is begun oa tk* ui d
mg November 1. It should be ready
for occupation by the fail of ISIS. Un?
til the architects complete the modi
fed plans, the exact cost of the new
home can not be known. It Is esti?
mated. howoTor. that a building on
Fifth Street win cost in the neigh?
borhood of It*,***.

i London. October 4.?A more hopeful
? feeling prevailed to-day concerning
I the Balkan situation, for diplomacy.
I which la peeking tor peace, ha* made
I some progreas toward a solution of to*
i crisis. The arrival of the news that
I the power?? bad reached a complete
; agreement and that the Balkan state*
; had modified their demands was, how
1 ever, simultaneous with further reports
I of fighting on the frontiers.
The persistent reports that Turkey
and Italy had arranged peace are be?
lieved to have had some influence on
the Servian, Bulgarian, Montenegrin
and Greek allies, who. it is assumed,
will not be so anxious to tackle Tur?
key when she Is free from the embar?
rassment of a war with a great power.
: In this connection, it is now announced
I by the Bulgarian legation here that
j Bulgaria* demand Is tor Macedonian
[ autonomy under the surveillance of the
! powers, similar to that existing in Crete,
j The original demand was for complete
! autonomy for all the Turkish provinces
i in Europe. Turkey., on the other hand.
; has become less docile. With her hands
i virtually free from the Italian war
'and her people united in patriotic fer
1 vor to defend their fatherland, she
> appears bent on settling the Balkan
, question one* for ?11 by means of war.

J visits of the Turkish ambassador to

i was summoned yesterday and again

?Sir Edward Orey. the British Secretary
of State for Foreign Affairs.
The Ottoman government also has |

On* hopeful sign, however, is the

' has time la act in the interests of

Taft and Roosevelt Fare
Badiy at Hands of
Democratic Candidate Declares
Party Now Is Out of Bondage
and Prepared to Remedy
Public Ills?Everywhere
He Goes Great Crowds
Greet Him.
I Chicago, October 4.?Six aet speeches
1 were made by Governor Wilson to-day
! between Indianapolis and Chicago. In
i which he attacked his opponents, point
| ed out the evils of courts and the tariff
j as he viewed them, re-viewed labor con
; ditions and declared that the Democra?
tic party is out of bondage and pre?
pared to remedy public ills.
It was a strenuous day for the Dem?
ocratic presidential candidate, and ax*
I ter two hours here with Secretary
j Joseph E. Davies. of the national com?
mittee, and others, he left for Omaha
and Lincoln, Neb. At tbe latter place
he will meet William J. Bryan to?
Crowds Everywhere.
Crowds greeted tbe Governor every?
where. As most of the meetings were
held out of doors, the nominee had to
strain bis voice to reach the outer
fringe of the mass of people wbo
i spread out on all sides of improvised
platforms. At Kokomo, Ind., be crltl
clced Mr. Taft and Mr. Roosevelt along
the lines he followed in his Indianapolis
speech of the preceding night, saying
they had 'presided over the very pro
i cesses that had got the country^ into
"No man in the United States waa
never more trusted than tbe leader of
the third party during the seven and a
half years that he was President." Mr.
Wilson said. "It is possible tbst he
has just discovered the deep needs of
humanity. It is possible that he now.
for the first time, sees that he was led
seven and a half yearn durinc which
he could have led tbe American people
to any triumph or reform to which he
had chosen to lead them? When T look at
these two parties I look at the top of
them, and I don't see any more pros?
pect in the one direction than in the
other."* j
At Plymouth. Ind., the Governor said:
"I have been much interested as I
have traveled about, particularly In
this State, to notice certain posters
everywhere with a handsome picture
I of Mr. Taft in the middle, and there
j on tbe other side a discourse about
i the high cost of living, with the In
! teresting and measurably true state
j ment that the cost of living has ln
i creased everywhere In the world, it
[ has. But the Interesting circumstance
1 is that it had Increased much faster
in tbe United States than anywhere
; else, and that in most low tariff coun
l trlea it has hardly increased at ail."
Hears They Are Free Agents.
' When I was told that I was going
! to speak at Gary. Ind.. said the Gov
I ernor at that place, *T said 1 thought
j that the United States Steei Corpora
' tion was all for the thirt party and 1

?T want to ask the people in Gary
if it is tbelr observation that the em?
ployes of the United states Steel Cor?
poration are better paid than the aver?

The whol. country knows that where
' ever it has business it depresses wages

Frvewd of Ovwnsnkted labor.
Plymouth. Ind.. October 4 ?Governor
' Wilson talked about labor conditions
here this afternoon, arguing that the
Democratic party alone had supported
and aimed to assist organized labor.
