' 111 foes: hand s Guard of 4000 Albanians Sur renders to Young Turks. MIAZI BEY ASSUMES COMMAND Martial Law Proclaimed by the Com mander of the Young Turks Advisers of the Sultan Will Have to Die. Constantinople, Turkey. The end of Sultan Abdul Hamid's power came, when at dawn' the remnant of the Yildiz palace garrison surrendered unconditionally. During the night hundreds had been killed in hand-to-hand fighting. Heavy guns had been moved up to destroy the palace at sunrise. Seeing that further resist ance was hopeless the Sultan gave the command to surrender. Niazi Bey, the ablest ztnd most fear less of the Turkish commanders, and known as ".the Hero of the July revo lution," took his own command into the palace, declared that strife. was at an end and that the fate of the Sultan would be determined by a council of the Constitutional party. "The life of Abdul Hamid will be protected," he announced; "His future will be settled either by Par liament or by the leaders of our na tional movement." The Sultan is said to be within the walls of the Yildiz Kiosk, where, in company with his ministers, he had waited for the outcome of the strug gle between his loyal troops anLthe army of investment, each hour bring ing to him word of a -fresh disas ter. . His authority is gone forever. Whether his fate shall be death, exile or imprisonment, no one now can foretell. The chief plotters in his pal ace are all under arrest and will prob ably receive capital punishment. The last garrison to surrender was the Selimieh artillery barracks, in Scutari, opposite Stamboul. Four thousand men stationed there with 100 guns threatened to blow the city lrto ruins, but General Schefket or dered up sixty big guns and several batteries of machine rifles to positions which commanded the barracks, and the cruiser Mejidieh steamed out of range of the field pieces and prepared for action. The commander of tha barracks thereupon submitted, and the artillerymen marched out as the troops of the other garrisons already have been, without arms, to await transfer to outlying districts. The proclaiming of martial law in Constantinople and environs was fol lowed by a circular note, which was sent to each of the foreign Ambassa dors. It read : "I have the honor to inform Your Excellency that, in view of the cir cumstances, a state of siege begins to day in the capital, Ismid, Tchekmedjs, Tchataja, Gebize, Kartal and Beyooz.

The Standard's Constantinople correspondent esti--mates that 2000 men were killed in xne ngnung in tne capital, and that itue.iusses were neaviest on-me siae of the Constitutionalists, who did all of the attacking and who offered good targets in the open. During the con flicts, the mollahs and softas, fearing the vengeance of the people every where, sought refuge in the mosques, where they were caught and many of At the time of the surrender, the correspondent adds, the Sultan had with him besides the Grand "Vizier and the War Minister, two of tlie nearest heirs to the throne, Metiem med Reschad Effendi and Yussof Iz zedine, whom he had detained as hos tages. It is reported that about eighty of the softas and mollahs who took refuge in the mosques were found to be armed when they were captured, and were placed against the nearest wall and shot. A special dispatch says that few of the inhabitants of Constantinople are aware of how dangerous a crisis was passed through last week while the town was in the hands of the niutin ous soldiers.

In view of the ur gent need the Government succeeded in borrowing $1,000,000 and was able to pacify the men. The city is animated, thousands visiting the scenes of the fighting. The Taxim and Tasch Kischia bar- Tacks were especial objects of inter est on account of the visible effects of the bombardment. Many of the guardhouses in the barracks still fly the signals of surrender in the shape or a white towel or shirt, or rags hung from the windows. VThe tram way and cab traffic has- been re sumed.

GWILLKIMBY'S TROUSERS. A Cherished Delusion About His Per. sonal Structure Dispelled. ; "Amothef long cheriashed delusion shattered!" said Mr. -GwiUkimby. '.'When.I 'had come to be old enough to ipay attention to my personal attire 1 soon discovered that one of my trouser less was, or seemed to T)e, longer than the other. When I measur ed the trousers I found the two leg3 to ibe; of exactly the same length, and so whenever I ordered dotHies I al ways had the right leg of the trous ers made half an inchlonger tban the !eft, and this custom I have followed to the present, day. 'Wow for the shattered delusion. "When I first had trousers made in that way, with one leg longer than the other, the tailor who measured me told me thsat my right hip was a little bigger and (higher than the oth er and so took the olotai up more on thaslde. So for years, for many years u fact, I. had my trousers anade with the right leg ihalf an imoh Jonger than the left; and then day beifore yester day I ordered a suit of plofcfies otj another tailor, and when he came to measure me for the trousers 1 told him I waited the right leg niada half an inch longer and casually men tioned the reason. "The new tailor smiled a little at (thiat and touched the points of my hip bones. ; Then he scanned my body with his eye and he smiled. "It isn't your (hips he said; 'your hips are 'all right; it's your should ers. You carry your left sfaoulder lower than your right, and. that lets your left trouser 'leg down by thai mucih.

"I can't really see that it would make ansy substantial difference hotf the trousers were made to be even at the bottom, whether this was done by making the right leg half an inch longer or the left leg half an inch isihorter, butt It was a little shook to me to have a new reason assigned for the necessity of doing this; I had hugged that old delusion so long.
