Constantinople, Aug. 15.—The Im­
perial troops nave occupied Krushevo,
twenty-three miles north of Monastir,
which was recently seized liy the in­
surgents. A force of 4,(mm) troops be­
sieged the place and bombarded it
with artillery.
The lighting with the revolutionists
is still proceeding outside the town.
Consular advices from Monastir and
Salonica endorse the belief that any
overt movement in those towns on the
part of the revolutionary committees
will lead to a massacre of the Bul­
garian Inhabitants by the Mussulmans.
The panic continues at Monastir,
where the shops are closed.
A settlement of the indemnity for
the murder of M. Rostkovski, the Rus­
sian consul at Monastir, is imminent.
The government's offer of $80,000 to
the widow appears to be satisfactory
to Russia.
Dispatches received by the porte
give particulars of a number of en­
counters with the insurgents. The lat­
ter attacked the village of (Jumenke,
throwing bombs in it. but official dis­
patches say thej were repulsed.

manded of the porte protection for

three men, probably fatally wounding
three others and injuring twenty

The band had just finished playing
"Hiawatha'' when Twigg came up and
tired both barrels of his shotgun at
the bandstand. R. E. Oliver, a mu­
sician, fell with his back and arms full
of shot.
The crowd surged toward Twigg and
he. having reloaded his piece, fired
two charges into the audience. Men
and women fell to the ground in pain,
(rushing children beneath them.
Those who were not injured scat­
tered in every direction, knocking
many others to the ground This
panic allowed Twigg to reload and
fire several times at the fleeing women
and men. At last Policeman George
Nichols came up ami. waiting behind
a tree for an opportune moment, con
fronted Twigg just as the madman,
had discharged his fowling piece
Twigg dropped the shotgun and. draw

The bullet went wild. Before Twi'tg

killed the treaty ana is believed
that President Koosevelt almost surely
will decide to select the Nicaraguan
canal route.
Officials of the department of state
and Senor Herran, the Colombian
charge d'affaires here, are in the dark
as to the exact nature of these amend­
ments. From meager and mutilated
official dispatches received, however,
it is known that the two principal
amendments provide for a large and
unreasonable increase in the bonus
demanded of the I'nited States for
the strip of territory through which
to construct the waterway, and for a
provision which prohibits the Colom­
bian government giving the United
States absolute and perpetual control
over this territory.
Officials of the state department are
disgusted and disappointed at the ac­
tion of the Colombian committee, as
it means a long delay In the construc­
tion of the canal.
It was announced during the day thai
no definite conclusion regarding the
date of the extraordinary session yet
has been reached and that no decision
would be announced until the presi­
dent shall have consulted members ol

with the lords, where the speech from
increased Irom $L',(iiiu.ii(i(i.Hii to the throne was read. The speech was
of little general and political interest.
It alluded to the. cordiality of the
king's reception in Portugal, Italy and
France anil to the return visit of Presi­
dent I .on
bet, "whose visit has given
rise to a striking exhibition of the
feelings of mutual good will which
prevail in the two countries."
The meist interesting portion of the
speech to America deals with Ireland.
It says:
"The warm expressions of good will
with which I was everywhere received
greatly touched me. My visit enabled
me to realize how much was being
attempted to improve the housing ac­
commodation for the working popula­
tion, stimulate commercial activity,
advance the methods of agriculture,
develop technical education anel pro
vide for the sick and infirm. Much re­
mains to be done, but it. was with feel
ings of the deepest gratification that I
noticed signs of increasing concord
among all classes in Ireland, presag
ing. as I hope, a new era of united
efforts for the general welfare."
Referring to the Irish land bill the
speech says it offers inducements to
the land owners to continue their resi
ele-nce among the countrymen and pro­
vides facilities for improving the con
ditions of life in the poorer districts
-if the West. It adels:
