Amendments Needed.
The governor dwells at length on
'the need and demand" for a consti

appeal for the ratification of the two
proposed amendments to the nation
I a. I constitution He says.
"Two great amendments to the
constitution of 'be United States
await the ratification ot New Jersev,
the amendment conferring upon the
congress of tbe United States on un
mistakable terms the power to lew
I taxes on incomes and the amendment
I providing for the election of senators

Janina, in the south of Epirus, was

The Greeks have closed all ap

Conflicting Reports.
Conflicting reports as to conditions

are current, but it appears eyideni
thai the Turkish troops and Inhabi
tants of the city are suffering from

, to the Turks js to be worded in such
la way that it will become effective
only in the event of the Ottoman
government refusing compliance with
the advice given in it by the ambas
sadors of the European powers
The members of the Balkan
: league are of the opinion lhat the
! note drafted by the European diplo
mats is so diluted that it requires
the admixture of a vitalizing tonic
and this, they think, will be supplied
by their threat to continue hostilities.

envoys understand that Kiamll Pasha

heavy siege batteries have been plac

Austria to Enforce Claims.
Although the mobilization of the
Russian and Italian armies is denied,
there is no doubt that Austria-Hungary
still maintains her armaments
with ibe object of enforcing her
clainig in the Balkans, especially in
I Albania.
The plenipotentiaries remark thai
I the altitude of Austria-Hungary is
not so much against them as against
Italy and that for this reason and

two members of the triple alliance,
