London, Nov, 4. The Turkish am
bassador here has been directed by
the Ottoman government to Inform
fiJI' Great Britain of Turkey's willingness
JHUtIBiI receTe assistance In bringing
' Sji about a suspension of hostilities with
, l i, view of arriving at a peace settle-
JP-p (j m ment.
"J I The Balkan nations and Greece arc
I T 1 persistent in their determination that
?cNis,n Turkey must arrange directly with
NLn yi i, them tho terms of peace, without 'the
SPSJi i intervention of the European powers.
psSxSSl , This attitude la emphasized by a
ljul$4t statoment from official sources, which
ayvj ' Bays:
"tifKiyfif "The Turkish proposal for peace is
XKfljAj ' satisfactory so far as it shows a dls-
!Fa?B r. position to prevent further bloodshed.
xJW' N ""s rSirds foreign intervention,
Tln , N however, there seems no chance of the
Ml ah Balkan Btates listening to any for-
XjBf Qlgn counsels while treating for the
Vjfllj arrangement of conditions of peace.
JtKm These must be settled between the
VI v Balkan states and Turkey direct.
M-I i Campaign Pre-Arranged.
J "!' ' " ma' at tnB slage declared
JsJ that tho whole campaign was pre-ar-
' wi r ranged and has so far been carried
n out entirely In accordance with tho
DAYyJh program For a considerable time an
'Kfll officer of the Greek military start,
y Colonel Dousmanls. was engaged at
Kjf Sofia preparing the military details,
Kt while the political program was large-
ur "Id ly if not entirely the work of Premier
n! 'ifl , Venlzelos of Greece.
HJ Jy ' "The union of the Balkan states at
tgjaM this moment is more close, hearty and
cJBRl Intimate Uian It has ever been, for It
SsBv . has been welded by blood and com-
j I mon sacrifice There Is not the least
(fjflKl danger that any disagreement as to
ggH the division of territory or the pos-
' '' session of the frontiers will disturb
- --i' " Tt may be assi,mc tual tnc same
gjiw- procedure v.'ill be foliowed both at the
iHtj conclusion of hostilities and subee

'Syil Powers Respond.
J ."Those powers thus far consulted
a . have responded to Turkey's appeal
gjBH for mediation, but they could ouly
Sjil mako proposals for peace and could
?pjM not approach the Balkan nations with
$& a request for an armistice Some of
otRH the governments have pointed out
SbI that Turkey's proposal for a cessation ;
$81 of hostilities In other words an arm-
JRJ1 Istlcc would offend tho Balkan vlc-
fH;r torB. Oilier governments take the po- !
flHr sitlon that ft would be an Infringe- ,
B ment of International law for the mo- j
j1' ' mqnt, and that the war, therefore .
,4lrf, ' nst continue, and that the Turkish;
4jm, armies, which the norte has at last i
'"-'JBm admitted have beon beatee, must keen
IJ on with tchlr vncqual struggle against
ff3 the victorious invaders
K "It Is hoped and believed still that
g the powers will soon find a formula
H under which they can offer their good
g oIces. The terms of peace themselves
la are a matter entirely for the bellig-
Ot erents to settle, Bulgaria having again
B affirmed that no Interference from the
H outside will be tolerated. In this she
H has the support of her allies who set-
H tied the political as well as the mill-
gl tary aspect of the campaign before
H the' war was undertaken
R ' Springs Surprise.
S "Negotiations, which were takln-j
3 place among the powers when Turkoy
Sj spiang the surprise of asking for me-
fp dlatlon, vere not over-successful The
M European governments had not even
B agreed on tho preliminaries for an of-
RJ for of mediation. The suggestion
Eg made by France, to which both Rus-
3 sla and England subscribed, met with
f nothing but criticism In Austria, and
ffl she, of course, was backed by Ger-
j many and Italy, the other two mem-
H bers of the triple alliance."
BE It Ib suggested, however, that Aus-
Sj trla mlsundorstood the proposal In re-
M gard to "disinterestedness," which was
13 not. as believed In Austria, directed
against the Idea of economic arrange-
bL ments between Auscrla and the Balkan
Wl Still Austria's attitude has caused
my much uneasiness and reportB that she

HK1 Rush for Safety.
ffw In tho mcautimo the war is going
X on and what is left of the Turkish
ft I army after the dofeat Luleh Burgas
is rushing for safety behind tho lines
), ( of foru; at Tchalalja.
I It Ib suggested in somo quarters that
K Nazlm Pasha, the Turkish command-
H er-In-chlof, la receiving rclnforce-
js ments and Is maldng a last desper-
fc ate stand to cover the retreat of bis
K; shattered forces. There Ib nothing.
?r however, to confirm this belief, and
K tho best Informed correspondents
agree that only scattered remnants of
',' tho Ottoman army will bo able to
$ reach the HneB of Tchatalja.
While the number of tioops engug-
JS ed in the series of battles fought be-
w J tween tho Turkish and Bulgarian arin-
Ijm Is In Thrace during the last fort-
R if. night -was not so large aa that of the
armies that fought In tho Rusao-Jap-
y anosq war, yet this probably will be
j&j tho most savage and bloody war ever
fM fought In Europe.
h The flghtin gls followed by many
(J massacres by the Turldsh soldiers,
fej the brutality of which Is hardly bo-
llevable. The reports Issued by the
Bulgarians are probably exaggerated,
but the accounts of Independent wit
nesses show the situation in this re
spect is very bad.
Brutality of War.
One of the railway officials; who es
caped from Lulo Burgas told that he
saw the bodies of two mon of Turk
ish citizenship, who had been run to
death with bayonets. He said
"Not an Inch of white skin was vis
ible on the whole surface of their
bodies, which were covered with a
crust of skin. I could not look at food
for days after I had seen them and
this Is only one Incident of tho atroc
ities committed."
Asked a3 to the position of war cor
respondents with the Turkish arm,
he said.
"I should not gle much for their
chance, as it will ''go hard with any
Christians who fall Into the hands of
the Turkish irregulars These are
entirely beyond the control of their
officers and they never have been
compelled to cease wanton acts of
cruelty all along the line
"The losses of the two armies re
ported are beyond doubt merely es
timates, but that thoy are great Is
certain The attacking Bulgarians
lost more men than the Turks "
At the Bulgarian ministry of war,
according to a dispatch from Sofia,
are the names of -1,000 dead Bulgarian
soldiers who hnve been killed and it
is said that during the last few days
20,000 Bulgarians were wounded, half
of them seriously.
London, Nov -1 Salonika is In a
state of panic according to a dispatch
to the post. About 20.000 Inhabi
tants of the surrounding village have
besides hundreds of fugitives from
Usup and 7,000 anatollan soldiers
sent from Constantinople. There Is a
great scarcity of provisions and tho
hungry soldiers have plundered the
bakery shops.
I ondon. Nov. 4. A dispatch from
Antit'arl to the Express says that

Statement of Barnes.
YillIam Barnes, Jr., on leaving
President Tuft's apartments at the
Manhattan hotel, made the following
"Tho Republican battle has been
carried on in this campaign in the
Interest of sane and Intelligent gov
ernment, and 6traight thinking. Tho
candidate for vice president to be
nominated by the national coramltleo
ought to bo a man who fits in with
tho meaning of the party. I think Mr.

Mother Daddy look, is that the way our tax money is used?
Little boy Gee4 1 wish I was a banker or a governor or a state treasurer or a something.

Senator Dixon said yesterda that

national committee." said Senator
Dixon, "I am also inviting to partici

Sees Wilson Victory.
'Wilson and Marshall will hae the
largest majority of electoral votes
given to any candidate since boforo
the Civil war," said Chairman Mc
Ccombs In the Democratic forecast
"Thoy will receive also the largest
popular vote ever given a political
party In the history of the United
States. Thoy will carry not less than
40 of the IS states and are likely to
carry them all A unanimous o.a in
tho electoral college will not surprise
any one who has seen the confident
reports to the Democratic headquar
ters In tho last days of tho cam
paign." Senator Dixon, national ProgressIv4
chairman, predicted Colonel Roosevelt
would w In.
"Approximately six million votes
wil bo cast for RooBovelt aud Johnson
out of a total vote of fifteen millions,"
said he "The total error In all the
Democratic estimates Is the assump
tion that Wilson will poll the Bryan
vote of four years ago.
"Roosevelt and Johnson will sweep
the big Industrial centers with a land
slide "Taft will be the worst defeated
candidate since Winfleld Scott led the
remnant of the old Whig party to
destruction In 1852. Aftor Tuesday
the old Republican organization will
bo 'the third party' In every state la
the unlou I doubt If It will ever
again nominate a candidate for presi
dent After Tuesday the Progressive
party will bo the dominant opposition
party to the Democrats
"It is a most conservatIo statement
to say that Tuesday Roosevelt will re
ceive at lenst 60 per cent of the Taft
ote of four years ago and certainly
not less than 15 pei cent of the Bry
an vote of that year. That being
true ho will carry New York bv 05,
000. At tho Barao time ho will have
at least 297 votes In tho electoral col
lege. It takes only 26C to elect."
Tammany Hall Joined In the predic
tion of Democratic victory, In a stato
ment put out by Charles F. Murphy.
"Novcr were Democratic prospects"
brighter and Democratic expectations
more confident," said Mr. Murphy.
"All our representatives and can
vasses Indicate a Democratic sweep
of nation and state on Tuesday Tha
empire stato will give the presiden
tial and state tickets splendid major
ities. Its Democratic representation
In congiess will bo substantially In
creased." ;

L ;;.'.; Federal Bunch
John Watson, President State Board of Equalization. Sir: I have the official documents at the
Standard office to prove the state Equalization board letter printed Saturday evening and Sunday
morning absolutely false and totally misleading. You said in your letter THAT NEIGBOR1NG
AL MAIN LINE. I find that statement is absolutely false so far as it relates to Idaho, Nevada and
Wyoming, the only slates from -which I have official statements from the respective secretaries of
state or auditors of those states. You can see these records any time at the Standard. The following
figures tell you how the Union Pacific and Oregon Short Line railways arc assessed in Wyoming and
show to you plainly that the $50,000 assessed against the Union Pacific continental track does not in
clude tlie branches but that the branches are assessed in addition
Union Pacific Transcontinental track, per mile $50,000
Ilermosa Cut-off ,additional per mile . $20,000
' Superior Spur, additional per mile 20,000
Gunn Branch, additional per mile 20,000
Kilpeckcr Branch, additional per mile . . . . 20,000
Oregon Short Line Transcontinental track, per mile 40,000
ICemmerer Branch, additional per mile 15,000
Cumberland Branch, additional per mile ." 15,000
I will forfeit $300 if you prove the above wrong, if you will forfeit only $100 if I prove your fig
ures wrong.. This offer will hold good after election.
I pointed out Saturday that you were absolutely wrong on Nevada, aud in a letter from. S. D.
Taylor, stale auditor of Idaho, Taylor states that the Oregon Short Line tracks running north and
south are assessed at $50,000 per mile and cast and west lines at $60,000 per mile aud that all branch
es are assessed additional. Why did your board try to make the people believe that the neighboring
states did not assess the branch railroads?
I fully understand, Mr. Watson, that the report you signed was prepared by your board and not
by you, but I do believe you should have been fair enough to the people of Utah to have examined
the reports and convinced yourself of the trutHulness or the untruthfulness of the same before
siguing.it. .Very truly yours, . .v 1 T. . WILLIAM GLASMANN.
