London. January 11.?Diplomacy
ft.ii is buey seeking a solution for the
Turkish-Balkan deadlock. Fears that

ure, and the allies will take up arms

a ay hour since the plenipotentiaries

A not? from the powers will be

recommending Turkey to leave the
question of the Aegean islands in the
hands of the powers, makes It clear
that Turkey has no alternative exee; t
to cede Adrianople
Prenent I rida> ? >ote.
Another note was prepared by the
it nfcnseb.dors ar Constantinople, 'but
will be superseded by the collective
i' mmunieation decided upon at Kr'
day's meeting between Sir Edward
Grey, the British Secretary of State
lor Foreign Affairs, and the ambas?
sadors. As It is necessary- to tele?
graph the text of this note to the Con?
tinental -apitals for approval. It can
net he delivered before Monday.
All th? ambassadors to-day had sep?
arat? informal meetings with B-chad
Paaba and osman Naiilrn I'asha. the
Turkish delegates, trying, as one on
the ambassadors put it. "to square the
ctn le," and to discover a mid-'l?
. o rse between Turkey, which Insists
upon keeping Adrianople and Bulgaria,
which persists that she must have that
town. The Turkish delegates were Im?
movable, and said nothing could, induce
them to change their minds concern?
ing the posseaaion of Adrtanopl?.
The position of the powers is most
difficult, because all their delibera?
tions arc invalid unless by unanimous
consent. The note was agreed upon
for the reason that, although Turkey
complains that the powers did not keep
their word that even the war should
not change the status .|Uo la the Bal?
kans, the powers were able to answer
that the fault was Turkey's, which
for thirt}-four years found no way to
put Into effect article it of tne Berlin
treaty concerning reforms in European
Turkey. The note amounts to prac?
tically nothing more than advice.
The Turkish delegation openly de?
clares that the Porte will not be inov?t
by the powers' note, and will answer
with stronger refusals than hereto?
Allies Waat teflon.
The allies are becoming dissatisfied
with inaction. >ome ?ieslre a more
resolute attitude, and remark that I
after the ultimatum of January I it is [
undignified to remain in iamdoii for
more than a week without making
deeds folKw threats. The feeling in i
s..iia favors the recall of the delegates. 1
hut some of them a:? lncliaed to re- J
main for a few days, awaiting the et- '
feit of the p.iwetrs' note.
Kumaman demands continue to be,
the uppermost topic of interest. M.
Jonescu. ih? Rumanian Minister of the
Interior, whose wife is English, has
learned that public opinion is against
Rumania, and that l.-umanla's action
Is regarded in the nature of black
mall, whicn. if persisted in. might
mean war with Bulgaria in the near
future. M Jonescu is understood to
have received this impression also;
from a conversation with Sir Edward
Grey to-day.

Into which the Republican party has

er" hy former Governor Chase K. Os
borne. of Michigan, at a banquet of
the Hamilton Club to-night.
Referring to the club as the leao
lng Republican organ'zatlon of the
ooountry. the speaker called upon it
to take the Initiative In Inviting
leaders of the Progressive and Repub?
lican parties to a conference to seek
common ground.
"The invitation to attend could bo

cial Invitations to Theodore Roosevelt

Mr. Barnes. Mr. Filnn. Mr. Fairbanks

"The Republican party Is sick." con

about it. I.ast year it was delirious.
Now the fever ia broken, let us hope
permanently. The patient Is weak

i*s dtelfrlaaa the, party was repu'liateit
by the countr). I ?lo not believe tins
turning of the people's backs is neces?
sarily permanent "
Party Must do Things.
The speaker said the Republican
party must do things as it did in its
"stout young manhood." The party
might take up government ownership
of railroads, as the government at
present is exercising "ignorant and in?
competent supervision, without respon?
sibility." It might taks up the subject
of "employment slaves." Of this class
be MSi there were more than there
\vc:r> of black slaves when the Re- i
publican party was formed.
Tb? temperance quest! >n waa an- |
other worthy problem, the speaker 1
said. "The greatest curse In our na- ;
tion is commercialized alcohol." h? said.
"I am neither a total abstainer nor a '
prohibitionist, hut I cannot close my j
eyes t? the facts obtained through ?
every channel of social survey that N
sac cent of crime, degeneracy, diseas*
sad pauperism is caused by the sale and
intemperate use of alcoh d.
"If the Republican party !s seekin? |
a worthy task, let it undertake this |
one. It need not sdvvate proritbi- ?
tion. but it could replace the saloon ?
with sufficient municipal clubs or sub- j
stltutes of that character, where pure ?
liquors and beers made in dlat?lerles
and breweries supervise rl hy the gov

quantities at cost. Liquor will always

Chicago January 11.?Big business
Its right to growth md Its duties te
the country, were discussed by Brest?
dent-Elect Wood row Wilson In a speech;
before the Commercial Club, of Chica*
go. to-night.
"I do not care how big a bualnesB
prows, provided It grows big In con?
tact with keen competition." he said.
The Qovwuer made an appeal for a
dissolution of what he said were pre?
judices In this country between capi?
tal and labor.
Among Governor Wilson's auditor*
were batik presidents, railroad presi?
dents and heads of great business en?
terprise. Seated near him were Gov?
ernor Deneen. a Republican, and Gov?
ernor-Elect Dunne, a Democrat.
Contrary to expectations. th? Gover?
nor was not spoken to by local poli?
ticians In reference to the senatorial
situation In Illinois. His only caller
to-day was Charles R. Crane, who
frequently has been mentioned as ?
Cabinet possibility.
Governor Wilson declared that suc
ceas of enterprise) depended upon the
opening up to the rank and file of tho
nation, not only its physical resources*
but the business credit aa well.

Men had testified under oath, ho
said, to the existence of an "inner

able to the exclusion of those against
whom that Inner circle sought to dis?

against the banking system." he said.
"That already has been convicted But
I do refer to the banks ot credit in
"I tell you frankly that If I per?
mitted my thoughts to dweti apoc the
responsibility that will Tall upon rte
I wonld be daunted. I came here to asg
your counsel and assistance.
"The business future, of this country
does not depend on the government of
the United States; It is dependent on
tne business men. The government
cannot breed a temper. It cannot
generate thought and purpose. Things
done under the whip of the law are
done sullenly, somewhat reluctantly
sjyaf never successfully. The hope of
America Is the changing attitude of
the business men towiard tlie things
they have to handle in this country.
"I want to take sternness out of this
country. I want to see suspicion dis?
sipated I want to seethe time brought
iibotit when the. rank and file of tho
d!tuiTi| ??f the I'nited States who
hav< a stern attitude toward the busi?
ness men of the country shall be ab
iwdtjtely done away with and for?
gotten. Perfectly honest men are now
at a disadvantage in America e.-iuse
business methods In general are not
trusted by tho people, taken as a
whole. That is unjust to you; it is
unjust to everybody with whom busi?
ness deals and evnsybody*. whom busl.
ness touches.
People Vre \ot Trustful.
'In the I'nited States they do net

every kind are upon an equality In
their access to the resources of tho
country, any more than they believe
that everybody Is upon equal terma
In his acc.-ss to the justice of the coun?
try,, it is believed in this country that
a poor man has less chance to get
justice administered to him than a
rich man. God forbid that that should
be generally true.
"And then, in addition to all this, we
must see to it that the business of the
I'nited States la set absolutely free
of every feature of monopoly."
Here Governor Wilson paused, looked
about the banquet room and then add?
ed: 'J notice you do not applaud that.
I am somewhat disappointed, because
unless vou feel that wsy the thing la
not going to happen except ba duress,
which is the worst way to br.ng any?
thing about, because there will ha

are no important business men who
do not Intend to bring It about. I
