gone over to the Committee of Cmon

The committee to-night issued a
proclamation explaining its action It :
declares that while the Ottoman gnv-'
ernment under Said Pasha carried on
a victorious ?jinpaign in Albania, the
succeeding government under Mukhta
I'asha ruined Turkinsh authority in
Albania. II thereby excited the ap-.

tinues the proclamation, "eat e the

It* poliry led to the formation of the

"Russia wanted the war postponed

"The Ottoman nation," the proclama?

Hence the Kiamil Cabinet resigned and

Removal of Indigent persons and
chronic invalids from the City Home to

the rebuilding of the present City

The present institution is maintained
at a flat expense to the city of more
than t?oonn the year, while there seems
to be no doubt that under proper man?
agement a sufficient farm could be
made more than self-supporting In
addition the patron believes that a
large part of the food-stuff and fuel
which the city now purchases and dis?
tributes to the poor of the city could
be produced on such a farm, thus en?
abling the city to greatly enlarge that
work at reduced cost.

Flames Burst Through.
After a moment of stunned activity,
hundreds of rescuers pitched into the
ruins. Scarcely had they mounted the
heap when tongues of flame burst
through it. From all over the city came
rescue workers, and they were formed
into relays by Mayor Finch. As one
shift became exhausted another took i
its place. From the steaming ruin j
bricks were hurled aside, timbers torn |
out and cast into the streets and human
forms lifted from the wreckage and
hurried to hospitals.
The fire was extinguished in an hour,
but sometimes the flames brought the
volunteer fire fighters to the victims
who prayed for their rescuers to hurry.

I otent to nay that obviously the Cnited
States is not to be denied the power to
remit tolls to Its own coastwise trade
because of suspicion of possibility that
the regulations yet to be fiamed may
not res tire l this exemption to bonaflde
[coastwise traffic. The answer to this
objection, therefore, apart from any
[ question of treaty interpretation, is
that it rests on conjecture as to what
may happen, rather than upon facts,
und does not present a question for
submission to arbitration.
"It will be remembered that only
questions which it may not be possible
to settle by diplomacy are required
! hy our arbitration treaties to be re?
ferred to arbitration."
Mr. Knox continues taking up Sir
Kdward Orey's objection that the
canal act would enable tolls to be fixed
which would not be just nn<i equitable,
the secretary again calling attention
to the fact that this statement was
made without knowledge of tb* Presi
i dent s toll proclamation He welcomes
the opportunity of informing the
British government that in adopting
the rate of 11 25 per ton. Professor
j Kinor y Johnson included American
coastwise shipping in his calculations.
I Quoting from his report, the secretary
'shows that Professor Johnson calcu?
lates the tonnage passing through the
canal in 191.V as composed of American
coastwise shipping 1,(100.HOD tons; Amer?
ican foreign. "20.000 tons and foreign
shipping, S.7N0.0II0 tons It was on this
estimate that the President tlxed the
"If. as a matte- of fact." Secretary
Knox declares, the tolls now fixed
(of which Sir Kdward Orey seems
?.inawarei do not exceed this require?
ment 'interest on the capital expended
and the cost of operation and main?
taining the canal' and as heretofore
pointed out. there is no claim that
they do. It is not apparent under
Sir Kdward Orey's contention how
Oreat Britain could be receiving un?
just and tnequltable treatment if the
Cnited States favors its coastwise
vessels by not collecting their shure of
the tolls necessary to meet the require?
The exemption of the coastwise
trade from tolls, the secretary holds, is
merely a subsidy granted by the Cnited
States to that trade
Has Power to Violate Treaty.
Summarizing the British objections
and commenting upon them. Secretary
Knox does not deny that Congress has
the power, through the President, to
violate the terms of the Hay-Paunrhe
fote treaty in Its aspect as a rule of
municipal law.
Only when the complaint i? n.ad-? by
('?re,.t Britain that British vessel* ac?
tually have been subjected to un'-qual
treatment or inequitable tolls. Secretary
Knox asserts, can the question be
raised whether the United states is
bound by the Hay-Pannoefote treaty
to collect tolls from American vessels,
and whether the British vessels are
entitled to equal treatment. Therefore
the aaaoretnry holds that it is not now
necessary to discuss questions of facts
which have not yet arisen.
In conclusion the American note sug?
gests that the situation developed by
the present discussion may require
an examination of Oreat Britain into
the facts set forth as to the basis for
the tolls and other facts bearing upon
the situation If Oreat Britain, as a
result of such an examination, finds
thai a different opinion exis's between
the two governments on any of the
importan' questions of fact involved,
then "a situation will have arisen whi.-h.
in the opinion of this go veriimetit.
could with advantage be dealt with
by referring the controversy to a com?
mission of inquiry for examination and
report, m the manner provided for in
the unratifled arbitration treaty of
August 3, 1911. between the limited
States and Oreat Britain "
The necessity for inquiring into
questions of fact in their relation to
controversies under diplomatic dis?
cussion was contemplated by both
parties in negotiating that treaty.
"This proposal might be carried out,
should occasion arise for adopting it.
either under a special agreement or under
tho unratifled arbitration treaty above
mentioned, if Oreat Britain is prepared
to join in ratifying that treaty, which
the United States is prepared to do."

sary Funds.
Letters were sent out yesterday to the
I county Hoards of Supervisor* in Vir?
ginia, to the camps of Confederate
Veterans and to the Chapters of the
Daughter* of the Confederacy. asking
for co-operation in the task of securing
the attendance of every veteran of the
War Between the States at the cele?
bration of the fiftieth anniversary of
the Battle of Gettysburg.
This prelimiary work is being done

Adjutant on Oenersl Brown's staff, is

I n% ell Monuments.
As Just told in The Times-Dispatch
Monday, it is hoped to have every
i Virginia veteran present. Not only
I will the anniversary be observed at
j that time, and the peace monument
unveiled, but the monument which
I Virginia is preparing in memory of her
soldiers who took part in the battle
will be partly ready for unveiling, and
will be made one of the events of the
Ueneral Brown is now In Philadel?
phia, attending a meeting of the com?
missioners on the celebration from all
over the country. He Is the member
from Virginia. When he returns, a
conference of Confederate officers will
be held in this city looking to consum?
mation of the plans.
The number of surviving Confederate
veterans In Virginia is estimated nt
from 8.000 tc 10.000 How many of these
can afford to pay their own way to
Oettysburg Is problematical. This is
purl of the information to be secured
by means of letters sent to local organi?
zations. The camps and chapters wilt
bo expected to communicate- with all
veterans, working up interest wherever
possible, and secure pledges of attend?
ance from those who will pay their own
railroad fare.
Orttlng the Money.
As to the rest, action can be better
taken when the number is ascertained
A bill enacted by the legislature per- I
mits boards of supervisors to appro- ,
priate money ' from county funds to]
pay : he expenses of indigent veterans |
to Oettysburg Local camps and ?
chapters are expected to see these (
boards and secure money from them i
for this purpose
It Is only necessary to secure funds 1
for railroad fare The Cnited States
government, through the War Depart?
ment, will furnish the carnp facilities, j
including tents and water supplv
The State of Pennsylvania, which ha*
put up ?700.000 for the celebration, will |
supply the necessary things to eat :
Railroad rates will be reduced for the i
occasion. Altogether, the cost of getting 1
indigent veterans to the scene of the |
battle in which they fought fifty years
ago will not be great. h or most of
them, it will be 'he first visit since tha'
time, and for nearly all of th*m it will
be the last.
