out in the porte's attempt to make some
show of trying tn restore order in Ar
menia: but there are so many more de
mands upon the Turkish treasury at ths
present moment that the money just ad
vanced will not go a long way, even if it
was placed to le. itimate uses, which is
not likely t) bo t.ie case.
In the best informed circles bere, the
situation is regarded as decidedly criti
cal nud important developments are ex
pected within a short time.
The ambassadors of the powers do not
regard tne new Turkish ministiy with fa-
Tor; it is not expected to last long, and
It is {not thought that it will be able to
do anything worth mentioning toward
•ltaring the politicil atmosphere.
Tho rumors of palace conspiracies which
have been in circulation, fur months past
continue to be talked about. The nam*
of tbe deposed sultan, Mohammed Mu
rad, removed from the throne because he
was alleged to be suffering from idiocy,
is ones more mentioned ai being a likely
candidate for the throna.
Tnern are many people who believe the
lepos.'d sultun is quite as sane as the
present ruler of' the Ottoman empire,
Abdul Medjid.

api.re.it Mohammed Resbed, Is heard
mentioned as likely co shortly succeed bis
uncle, the present sultan, but that re
port baa been in circulut<on for months
past. In fact, it was said soma time ago
that tbe present sultan had offered to re
sign in favor of Mohammed Resbed, but,
it is added, the representatives of the
powers did not loog upon this as likely to
prove any solution of the complicated
situation and the matter was allowed to
The difficulty does not rest in Individ
uals; one sultan is about as bad or as
good as anothej; it is the system of gov
ernment in the Turkish empire which is
to blame for ail tbe trouble, and until
there is a decided change In this direc

condition of tho Armenians or Turks.
Tbe appointment of the ex-grand
vizier. Kiatuil i'asha, decidedly a well
meaning man, as vali ot Aleppo, is re
gonled here as being only another way of
efiiding him to exile. He may not be
actually exiled, but bewill not be"allowed
to return from Alepro until it sui.s tbe
ports. He is charged with many things,
but the sum and substance of it leemi to
be that he h»s been a scapegoat for the
sins and leek of mercy ut others. The
sultan had to do sometainir, so he
chanced bis grand vizier and turned over
liis cabinet, but that seems to be about

A plan c.f en operation has been adopted

its agreement to by 00 por cent of the pro

In brief it provides for the deeding by
the sweet wine magers of their loit-ivo.r
stock and this year's pro hi ti in to a
lioiid of seven trustees, who are to have
the exclusive rig t to sell the production.
The amount of wi ;e left over was 1,209,
--090 gallons of a tot il product of 4,174,000
gallons. This year's crop is, by conserva
tive estimates about Go per cc. t larger, so
that about 6,000,000 gallons will have to
be marketed. Four of the trustees were
elected. They are L. P. Drexler of tho
F'resno Vineyard company.Frank West ot
George West it Son und of tbe Sierra
Vista company, D. Henshaw Ward ot tho
Notorna Vineyard company and H. Tre

Three vacancies were left to no tilled iiy

number cf signatures to the plan are re
ceived and these positions are filled the
trustees will meet and organize. They
will dispose of the crop from time to
time, as seems most desiranlo and make
pro rata returns t" the sweet wine mak

probably be extended from year to ytar.

Discussed In Convention
NEW YORK, Nov. H. —Tne Society of
Naval Architects and Marine Engineers
had a warm discussion over the Nicu
r.iguan canal at today's session of its con
vention. The question before the body
was tbe proposition of presenting a me
morial to congress from the society ask
hnj favorable action on the Nicaragua
canal project under tbe auspices of an
American company and tho proposition
to present the memorial was defeated by
a vote of 27 to 15.
Admiral Richard W. M ado, U. 8. N.
was chuiramn of a committee which had
the muster in charge and oe made the
following report:
"In tho judgment of this committee it
would be proper to direct the president rf
this society to address such a memorial
to tho congress of the United States in
the name of tho society when the report
of the Nicaragua canal commission ap
pointed by the president of the United
States is made public, provided said re
port is favorable to the canal."
Tho report was accompanied by tbe
drift of a memorial, which follows:

i project of tiny properly org mired Ameri
] can oororpatfon engaged or to be engaged
lin the task of constructing a ship canal
I through the erritory of the republic of
i Nicaragua
"It is useless fnr the society to remind
' your honorable body of the transcendent
importance of this country's successful
promotion of such a work. Apart from
its commercial henelit to the entire civ
ilized wo Id, it seems to us to promiso
the people of the United Stales the means
of cementing in closer union than now
exists the seaboard states of the Atlantic
] and Pacific; of rendering one and indi
j visible the ties that bind the extreme east
to the extreme west ai lof Justifyil g one
of tbe mottoes of this glorious Union,
'esto perpetua,'
"Furthermore, it seems to promise to
onr people c gaged in ocean commerce
tbe prus| ect of competing as of old in
Amerc.m built ships or on more even
tern a than lnitherto for the great trade
of China, made possible by the recent
Struggle between thatcuunt y and Japan;
and it furth»r promises to instirs clos r
ties of fri.ndship between ourselves and
the Central and South American reptib
! lies, giving to this country more predom
inant o in the affairs of the American
continent which by right we tho..ld
have, but which have been jealously con
tended for by certain European powers.
"Foi these and other reasons which
doubtless occur to your honorable body,
we ask most rcspecttully thai the Nicara
gua Canal company, under the control of
citizens of the United States, may receive
at your I is such consideration, sym
pathy and suustantiat aid and encourage
ment as you n ay deem wise and just."
The opposition to the memorial was
based on the ground that it was inexpe
dient for tne society to interest itself in
legislation and was led by Charles S.

printed in the official law journal of
Paris: "From the judgment rendered
adversely by the fourth chamber of che
civil tribunal of tho Seine, on August 1,
1895, between Mme. Helene Josephine
Manslield wife of M. Frank Lawler und
wife by a second marria :e of M. Robert
Livingstone Reade, tbe woman's legal
residence being with her husband but
she residing as a matter of fact at No. S3
Rue Amoere, Paris, and M. Robert Liv
ingstone Reade, living in Paris at tbe
iiotel Brighton."
It appears that the divorce was granted
between the Reaoes at tbe request and
for the beneiit of Mine. Rei.de.
Reade fi rat met Josie Manslield at
Carlsbad in th summer of 1891. He was
ihete wth his mother. Mrs. Robert
Rea do, who was visiting her count! Mrs.
Lew P. Morton, also a visitor at Carls
bad with her two daughters. Josio Mans
field called herself Mrs. Frank lawler.
tbe name of her Prst busnsnd and despite
her age, was a belle in the famous water

hosts ot admirers. Reade fell a victim lo
the charms which had captivated James
Fisk, jr., and besought Mrs. Lawler to
■carry him, but the was not so easily
wo i. She told Read* to go home and
sleep on his proposal and then take time
to consider it carefully. She was sure,
she said, that these precautions must
cure him. Reade di! consider the mat

in an i ffort to conquer his 1 ive for Mrs.
Lawler, It was all in vain and upon his
return to Europe, he gave a dinner to tiis
intimate acquaintances. When coffeo was

And Predicts the Election of a Re.

Associated Press Special Wire.
PITTBBDBG, Nov. B.—-'The reaulta ol
the election of 1895 inako it almost cer
tain that the nominee of tbe next Repub
lican national convention will bs elected
president," said Calvin S. Brice to an
Associated Press reporter on the eastern
express. Tbe efealeil statesman said kf)
was going to New Yo>k, and continued!
"If tbe next president is not a Repub
lican the last election has at least added
very much to the interest that will be felt
in tbe deliberations of the I'epublicaß
"Who will be nominated?"
"Well, Mr. McKinley is a charming
gentleman, able, popular and probably
ibe most magnetic of any of tbe candi
dates. ''
To the reporter's suggestion that tbe
public would like to know the senator'!
explanation of the result in Ohio, Mr.
Briccsaid: "Ohio did just what other
states did. The result in Ohio was no
different from what it was in New York,
Maryland or Kentucky. People seem
di?" tished with the general policy of the
Democratic party, anil no looal argu
ment has any effect on national im
pulse. In Ohio we did our best, but it
was useless. Chairman Anderson of the
Democratic committee did excellent
work, but the odds were too great. Gen
eral Foraker will be elected to succeed
me as senator, and what I do does not
concern the public."
The reporter asked Brice if President
Cleveland a policy was to blame for tbe
wholesale Democratic disaster. The sen
ator hesitated a moment and tben said:
"No, I don't think Cleveland is to be
blamed personally for the tidal wave;
still, he will have'to bear his share of tba
blame as being part of tbe national or
ganization and leader ol the Demooiatlo
"How about Gorman?"
"Gorman's all right. Your man Qnay
was beaten worse than Gormen was last
Tuesday, and lie seems to he doing pretty
well. No; Senator Gorman is not ann
bilated, and the man who thinks he is i»
very badly mistaken."
