In an official comwu meat ion yes?

Auditor C L*e Moore raises the point
that the act under which the special
? -ommission rcccntlv compromised the
tax dispute between the Common?
wealth and the Richmond. Fredertcks
burg and Potomac Kail road is un?
If he is correct, the agreement re?
cently made, by which the road agreed
lo pay to the State tbe sum of II?.
5*1.83. and to the cities and counties
through which it. runs the sum of -
m\ will he void Further, the
road will not be enabled to carry out
its covenant to surrender its exemption
from taxation and to secure such changes
in its charter as will put it on a paritv
with ail the other railroads in Vir?

mittee of the directors <>r the railroad.
A general meeting of the stockholders'
of the road has been called for Februar-.?
g, there being prraaiically no doubt that
the agreement will then bo ratified.
Attacks Constitutionality.
It is understood that the AudCor
makes tbe point that the General
Assembly has no power to compromise
? debt due the State by any specific
person, or to delegate such power to u;
gpgaial commission. It can only be
done, be think" mf general law, appli?
cable to all. lie reasons the point, it
is s'a'ed. at sc-me length
Seen yesterday. Mi. Moore admit-j
ted that he had written to Governor
Mann He declined, however, to I

Brisen the Gtosrartae* rat asked eon
oerning the letter, he said he preferred
to mai " no'eteteaaesri until he had c*-n

special ? on,mission.
Discuxsing the matter last night, a
citizen tvho has some knowledge of the
whole affair said that upon such in?
complete, knowledge as the reporter,
? as able to eonvc..-. he did not think
tbe argument of the Auditor would,

Tales Not Assessed.
Beside*, said this individual, the
State has never even assessed property
!.u'f against the road and could hardly
b* said to be compromising a claim
which has not only never been adjudi?
cated, but which has never even been
presented. The amount to be paid
under the agreement is more than the
total franc hise taxes would have been
for ail the years, since the settlement
is on the basis of five years franchise
and property tax. the State and local- i

newed?Outlook for Tur?
key Is Very Gloomy.
London. January 14.? Cnlcss unfore?
seen assents should cjiange the current
of affairs, the Turkish-Balkan war in
the near Last will bo resumed within
a week, and Europe will witness the
horrors of a winter oumpaigu.
The allies have flmily made up their
minds to take up arms a second time
The Turks las' week threatened t<>
leave London and let matters rak?
whatever course they might. Now the
Balkan delegates, are convinced the
Turks aru merely drifting without a
fined policy, and i hey have decided
??> end the seemingly fruitless debater
and wire-pulling and begin the bat?
tles anew, where they left off more
than a month ago.
The Ottoman government failed to
convene the grand <-oun.il to-day. and
apparently has no intention of meeting
the allies' ultimatum concerning Adria
nople. The allies do not believe, in
the. efficiency of the note winch the
powers will present at < 'oti-'anrinople.
because t! is couched in too mild terms,
and simply advises Turkey to submit
to the fate of war and abandon Adria
nople for fear of complications in oth?
er parts of the empire at a tune when
Turkey could not And moral or finan?
cial support in Europe The Turkish
government knows that this means
nothing, because it. is aware that, the
powers will be unable to agree on any
. oereive measures Thus the presenta
tion by the powers of the note, jt is
pointed out. might mean simply the
opening of a new chapter in the al
ready wearisome diplomatic parleying;,
and the shifting of the diecuaaion from
a debute between the Belligerenta to
one between Turkey and tho pow
i ere.
The Balkan kingdoms, moreover, are
; anxious to obtain relief from the heavy
: burdens of keeping their arm'es on a
I war footing indefinitely. Wishing
howerer, m ..tatet v. all the diplomat*,
courtesies they have given the powers
a reasonable time to agree on the note,
frame It and present it to Turkey.
But this once done if Turkey fails to
yield they are determined to ae*.
Another Sitting.
Their governments have aureed to
call another sitting of the conference
through Sir Edwrad Grey or R"chad
Pasha, who. according to the rotation
followed, would t-e the next presiding
officer. They will then simply an
i iiounce their decision definitely to
break the negotiations and also thank
; England for ;ho hospitality extended
and the conditions of fair play under
; which the discussions took place.
Immediately afterwardf. Sofia. Bel?
grade and Cettlnje will denounce the
: armistaiee. and the Servian, Bulga
' nan and Montenegrin commanders will
: notify the Turkish headquarters that
' hostilities will be resumed within
ninety-six hours.
The allies say it is easy to predict
; the courso of events. After i hey have
stormed Tcbatal.ia thev prophesy Tur?
key will be ready to cede Adrianople.
just as after the Italians landed in Tri
1 poli she offered to make concessions
which previous >- sh had strentMTBfaty
refused, and as after the vfctofiee of
the Balkan states she consented to
grant reforms they had vainly asked
for thirty-four yearr.
After their second resort to arms, the
Balkan delegates assert, their pence
terms trill be different from thopa
Turkey is now rejecting They declare
that Bulgarin will not be satisfied with
a frontier line from Rodosto to Midia.
but will draw it Just before the gates
of Constantinople and they ."uggcee a
war indemnity of fSsi.tyje noo or more.
The diplomats consider the outlook
for Turkev as of the gloomiest char?
acter. Ktamtl Pasha's resignation as
grand vizier may be the n?f dvelop
ment. That would be likely ro no
followed by anarchv. The country
already is hard pressed for money and
the condition and spirit of the army
are mattere of doubt.
