GREECE WITHDRAWS
FROM BALKAN PACT
Refuses to Recognize Armistice Signed by Its
Allies and Continues the War
make common cause with Bulgaria,
Montenegro and Servia against Aus
tria, this circumstance, say the ex
perts, is not likely to change the re
sult Austria's only chance is to in-
Tolve Germany and Italy, and Italy has
had enough of war. A late dispatch]
from Rome states that the ministry
is evading Austrian persuasions.
A telegram from Berlin states ttiat
Rumania already is pledged to support
Austria and Germany against the Bal-
Kan alliance and Russia. Crown
Prince Ferdinand of Rumania, accom
panied by General Albert Robesco, ar
rived in the German capital today and
conferred with Emperor William after
luncheon at the Neve palace, Potsdam.
Tomorrow the prince will be received
by the foreign minister, Herr yon Kid
erlin WaclUer, and other ministers of
state. The part assigned to Rumania
by the triple alliance is an invasion of
southern Russia.
11l SSIA AWAITS DEVELOPMENTS
Russia has completed her prepara
tions for war. A St. Petersburg dis
patch says that the Russian govern
ment neither is moved nor misled by
Germany's warning. If Servia is at
tacked Russia will have no alternative
but to fight. M. Sazanoff knows this
and he would prefer war with Germany
to a revolution at home.
Prince Victor Bonaparte Is to be as
signed to the command of an army
corps should war with Germany de
velop. It is believed that with the
read of the French Imperialists fight
ing against France's traditional enemy,
France would move across the Rhine
within a week—the imperialists to
emulate the example of the Bonapartist
pretender, the antt-imperialists to stifle
this sentiment by a counter impulse.
It was a mild difference of opinion
among the members of the Ottoman
imperial iouncil, as to the existence of
a condition of "dharoorah," as pre
scribed in the Moslem law. which
caused the delay in authorizing pro
ceedings for an armistice. "Dharoorah"
is the past participle of the Turkish
verb "defeat." The Sheik Ul Islam is
a member of the Ottoman imperial
council. He alone doubted the Turkey
that had been in the "harooed" In the
better part of Islam in Europe. It took
423 special telegrams from Minister of
War and Commander in Chief Nazim
Pasha at the Tchatalja to convince
him, ultimately, that, alas! "dharoorah"
was knocking at the very door of
Stamboul.
SPBCfLATIOX REGARDING GREECE
The refusal of Greece to sign the
armistice is susceptible of different in
terpretations. In the first place, as a
tacit armistice has been in existence
more than a week, it is not Impossible
that the negotiations may have served
to bring about an agreement on the
general principles of the peace terms,
such as would promise the speedy ar
rangement of a peace treaty when the
conference meets, as now is expected,
In London, in this case the fact that
Greece is standing out from the peace
protocol would not be of great im
portance.
In the second place the Greek ab
stention may mean a serious split
among the allies, arising from jealous
ies concerning the possession of Salon
iki an dthe insistence of the Greeks on
the capitulation of Adrianople, Scu
tari and Janina.
Other factors that may Influence
situation are to be found i nthe fact
that Turkey recently sought to con
clude a separate treaty of peace with
Greece, that Bulgaria apparently Is not'
unwilling to enter Into an alliance with
Turkey an dthat the allies are desir
ous that Turkey shall enter the Balkan
customs league.
GREECE MAY CAUSE TROUBLE
There is a rumor in Sofia that a sug
gestion has been made to substitute
Roumania for Greece in the Balkan
league. It seems clear from the report
that Bulgaria will ignore the Greek
offer to land an army in Gallipoli pen
insula and to send Its fleet to attack
the Dardanelles, that the relations be
tween Greece and Bulgaria are strained
and these signs of dissensions among
the allies leave the situation full of
dangerous possibilities.
It is reported that France Is trying
to persuade Greece to adopt a less un
yielding attitude. It is understood
that financial pressure and the ex
haustion of their forces had much to
do with the willingness of Bulgaria
and Servia to conclude peace, and In
this respect Greece, which secured its
victories with less expense, is better
able to continue hostilities.
ATTITUDE OF SOFIA
ANNOYS THE GREEKS
ATHENS, Dec. 3.—Surprise and an
noyance are expressed by the Greek
newspapers at what they term the com
plaisance shown by Bulgaria in ac
cepting the Turkish proposals which
are so advantageous to the Ottoman
empire. It is contended by many
writers that the complete and definitive
liberation of the Christians in the
orient is obtainable only by combined
land and sea action of the allies against
Constantinople.
FUND IS FORWARDED
FOR WAR PRISONER
WASHINGTON, Dec. 3.—The Ame-H
---an Red Cross today forwarded $1,000
to the international bureau for the aid
of war prisoners in Belgrade, Servia,
and for Balkan relief work. A telegram
received by the department of state
from Ambassador Rockhill in Constan
tinople reports that conditions there are
normal and that there is a decrease in
the epidemic of cholera.
RUSSIA REFUSES TO
RECOGNIZE ALBANIA
VIENNA, Dec. 3.—-A Neve Freie
Presse dispatch from Constantinople
says that the Russian ambassador has
informed the grand vizier that Russia
could not recognize the indep-wdence
of Albania. At most, Russia would
agree to the establishment of an auton
omous province under the guarantee of
all the great pow.
PRINCE OF ROUMANIA
VISITS THE KAISER
BERLIN, Dec. 3.—Crown Prince
Ferdinand of Roumanla, accompanied
by General Albert Robesco of the Rou
manian army, arrived here unexpected
ly today.
The prince was t!he guest of Emperor
1 *.
William at luncheon, and in the course
of today and tomorrow will confer
with Albert yon Kiderlen-Waechter,
imperial secretary of foreign affairs,
and other German statesmen.
No announcement regarding the
meaning of Prince Ferdinand's visit
has been made, but the press generally
declares that it would not be wrong
to consider It as a link in the recent
demonstrative chain of visits of
courtesy, which, like the trip of Field
Marshal Baron Conrad yon Hetzendorf,
the inspector general of the Austrian
army in Bucharest, are intended to in
dicate to the outside world the solidar
ity of the members of the triple al
liance, Germany, Austria-Hungary and
Italy, with Roumania.
T ONDON MAY SECURE
L. PEACE CONFERENCE
SOFIA, Bulgaria, Dec. 3.—lt is stated
here that the representatives of the al
lied Balkan nations have acceded to
the request of the Turks that the peace
negotiations take place In London.
King Ferdinand in Kirk-Kilise De
cember 1, received General Vaver
Pasha, the commander of the Turkish
column which was captured near
Dedeaghatch.
The king returned his sword to
Vaver Pasha and told him that he
could reside where he chose in Bul
garia.
The Turkish commander chose Sofia.
SWISS STORE GRAIN
TO PROVISION ARMY
GENEVA Switzerland, Dec. 3.—Even
Switzerland seems to be preparing for
the eventuality of war. The federal
government is filling the various mili
tary storehouses with wheat and corn
ordered from the United States and
Canada.
RUSSIA TO OUTLINE
COMMERCIAL POLICY
When Treaty With United sstatei* Ex
piree January 1, C-enr Will
Announce Future Attitude
ST. PETERSBURG, Dec. 3.—lt Is Of
ficially announced today that the Rus
sian government will publish on Janu
ary 1, the day of the expiration of the
Russo-Amerlcan treaty of commerce
and navigation, a statement outlining
its future commercial policy toward the
United States and also a provisional
tariff which will not contain any great
increase over the existing tariff. The
policy of the Russian government, it is
said.- will not be imbued by any spirit
of animosity, but will be directed solely
to the protection of the Russian mar
kets and to assuring the Russian con
sumer the most favorable conditions of
supply of the staple imports hitherto
coming direct from the United States,
namely, cotton, farm machinery and im
plements.
Interclass Rugby at U. of
C. Saturday
Special Dispatch to The Call
BERKELEY, Dec. 3.—The Rugby fif
teens of the freshmen and sophomore
classes of the Univ-ersity of California
will meet Saturday afternoon in a con
test to decide the championship of the
lower cla_*ses. The rivalry between the
first and second year classes has been
keen and with the defeat of tho Uni
versity of Southern California this
year by the freshman with a score of
23 to 0, as against the 15 to 0 defeat
administered by last year's baby class,
the discussion as to the relative merits
of the Rugby material of the two
classes has waxed warm.
In former years an interclass series
to decide the college championship
was a regular feature of the Rugby
season, but for the last three years
the&e games have been done away with,
owing largely to the danger of injury
to good men during the varsity season.
The contest Saturday will be a sort
of trial of the Interclass games and
If it proves a success it will probably
be continued next year. The game
will take place on California field at
i; o'clock. •

MeCormick and grandson of John D.
Rockefeller, has begun a course in base
ball pitching under the. tutelege of
Merdecai Brown, former star hurler of
the Chicago National League club.
The boy, who some day probably will
rank with the world's wealthiest men,
is being trained for' slab work at
Princeton university. Hi 3 father is a
graduate of Princeton and it Is his
ambition to watch his son some day
strike out the batsmen of Yale and
Harvard for Fowler is to enter the
university as soon as he is prepared.
Brown will give his pupil two lessons
each week, and when spring comes.
Fowler will try for a pitching berth on
the team of the "prep" school which he
attends.

Big Fortune in Soap Suds
But "Bubble" May Burst
"Billy" McGuire, who has been successful in extracting gold out of
Nevada, out of oil and out of taxicab companies, is now going to
extract it out of soapsuds. lie is going to utilize the vast waste inci
dent to laundrying and will skim the dainty top off the steaming tubs,
condense the scum and remold it nearer to the form of cakes of soap.
As a Palace hotel poet has put it metrically:
"Billy likes to work *>ith suds; he really feels at home
In facing suds in tub or glass — he likes to blow the foam.
Imagine a lake of soap suds, steaming on the fire.
Having the soap extracted by handsome Bill McGuire,"
And, really, that is pretty good poetry for a Palace hotel poet to
reel off.
Wellington Gregg, cashier of the Crocker National bank, put Mc-
Guire in the way of a new fortune.
Last week a man came to the Crocker bank with a scheme for
doubling its resources. He wanted the bank to finance his operations
in the soapsuds field. There were, he said, 8,755 laundries in San
Francisco, and each one used 497 cakes of soap a week. Part of this
soap dissolved in water in the work of washing San Francisco's linens
and silks and calicoes, but a lot of it went unseparated into soapsuds
and was cast off. His plan was to accumulate all the soapsuds of the
city, extract the water from the bubbles, and the residue would be
soap again.
William H. Crocker, president of the bank, wasn't in the day the
man called*, so his plan was unfolded to Wellington Gregg. Gregg liked
the idea, but thought that the Crocker bank didn't want to make too
much money—it might make the national treasury jealous, and that
would be awful, so he said it was prudent for the bank to pass the
scheme up.
But his" friend, Billy McGuire, former assemblyman and contem
porary millionaire, really was ambitious to emulate Rockefeller, and
Gregg would give him the chance.
McGuire liked the idea. He and the inventor of the scheme are
busy now experimenting on the proposition by blowing soap bubbles
and seeing how much they assay to the inch diameter.
FATHER VAUGHN HAS
WRITTEN ON SOCIALISM
His New Book on Subject
Has Been Received From
His Publishers
For some time socialism has occu
pied the pen of Father Bernard
Vaughn, the English priest who is now
visiting San Francisco. Yesterday the
clergyman received from his publishers
the result of his labors in the form of
a handsomely bound volume which has
covered the subject in a broad minded
spirit, according to its author.
"I have tried earnestly and faithfully
to deal with the subject in a broad
minded way," said Father Vaughn yes
terday, "and I don't think reviewers
will have a difficult time saying nice
things about it."
This is not the first time the famous
orator has appeared as an author. His
book, "Sins of Society," ran through
several editions and is still producing
royalties.
"I appear to be free from speech
making today," he said, "but during
the three weeks of my stay in this city
I shall deliver a great many talks, all
of which I hope will do some good. I
have been In America for more than a
year now, and I feel that I have
covered the country pretty well from
the tourist's standpoint. Of course, as
a priest, I can see where I might stay
here a thqusand years, even if I had a
thousand personalities all preaching at
once, and still continue to be needed.
H I am anxious to return to London
again. It is a wonderful town. There
is none other quite like lt."
Father Vaughn spent yesterday vis
iting various parishes about the city
with Archbishop Riordan, at whose
residence he is living.
WALCOTT NAILS TALES
AGAINST AMENDMENT
Civil Service Head Writes Chief White
• Correcting Some HI is state
ments
Chief of Police White is in receipt
of a letter from E. A. Walcott, presi
dent of the civil service commission,
wherein the latter explains the pro
visions of charter amendment No. 3.
Walcott says he wrote the 'letter be
cause misstatements are "being circu
lated which are hostile to the Interests
of the police department.
In explaining the provisions of the
proposed amendment Walcott says that
If enacted it would not change In any
particular the present charter pro
visions with regard to examinations,
rating or promotion; that it would not
permit the civil service commission to
change the standing of members In
the department, nor to transfer them in
any way.
Walcott further says that it will not
change the terms or salary of any of
the present commissioners; that the
amendment is drawn solely for the
purpose of protecting the civil service
employes against removals or appoint
ments for political purposes, or for
any other reason than their own merit.
COMMITTEE TO WORK
FOR AQUATIC PARK
Committees were appointed Monday
night by the aquatic section of the Rec
reation league to fight for the aquatic
park bond issue amendment to be voted
on December 10. The meeting was held
In the courtroom of Judge Thomas F.
Graham in the temporary city hall.
E. J. Scully, acted as chairman and
James J. Cronln as secretary. The
speakers included Judge Graham, Su
pervisor Ralph McLeran, A. Katch
lnskl and A. Calderwood, who repre
sented the Carpenters' union. It was
decided to hold a mass meeting next
Monday night in the Phelan building
In the Interests of the amendment.
Partial arrangements were made for a
moonlight parade to be held a few
nights before the amendments are to
be voted on.
How to Look Years
Less Than Your Age
(From The Dermatologist.)
The most aged face will look year 3
younger after the use of ordinary mer
colized wax for from 10 days to two
weeks. This remarkable substance, be
cause of its peculiar absorptive power,
actually removes the thin veil of faded
or withered outer cuticle, a little at a
time. Gradually the fresher, more
youthful skin underneath is revealed.
This absorption process being a purely
hygienic one, an entirely natural com
plexion Is acquired—quite different
from the artificial complexion, which
appears anything but girlish, though
often bearing painfjjl evidence of child
ishness. An ounce of mercolized wax,
obtainable at any drug sto»e. is suffi
cient to rejuvenate any complexion. It
is put on like cold cream at bedtime,
and removed mornings . with warm,
sudsy water.
To eradicate such age marks as
wrinkles and furrows make a wash lo
tion by dissolving an ounce of pow
dered saxolite in a half pint witch
hazel. This has wonderful astringent
and tonic properties. It quickly effaces
all kinds of wrinkles, no matter how
caused, making the skin firm, smooth
and young looking.
FORESTRY COURSES IN
SCHOOLS RECOMMENDED
Association Concludes Con
ference With Selection of
Next Meeting Place
SEATTLE, Wash., Dec. 3.—The West
ern Forestry and Conservation asso
ciation concluded its third annual for
est fire conference today with the se
lection, subject to approval by the
board of trustees, of Vancouver, B. C,
as the next meeting place. The con
ference adopted committee reports
recommending forestry courses in pub
lic schools, liberal state appropriations
for forest patrols, good roads in timber
districts, railroad, co-operation in fire
prevention, home rule in forest ques
tions, nonpolitlcal appointments of
forest workers, extension of state for
est work and reform in taxation of
standing timber.
Discussing the taxation question, E.
G. Ames of Seattle said the tax rate on
standing timber in this state, amount
ing in 1911 to SO cents an acre, was so
high that It forced the timber owners
to cut their timber, as rapidly as pos
sible regardless of economical methods
and conservation of< the supply. Ames
advocated a method of taxation hy
which the timber would not be taxed
until cut.
The following officers were elected:
J-resident, A, L. Flewelllng of Spokane; secre
tary, G. N. Cornwall of Portland; treasurer, A.
W. Laird of Potlatch. Idaho; forester, B. T.
Allen of Portland. Vice president*—Montana.

LUCILLE CAMERON
BRIDE OF JOHNSON
Special Dispatch to Tbe Call
CHICAGO, Dec. 3.—Lucille Cameron,
the white girl, sacrificed home, a
mother, pride and friends of her race
today to become the wife of "Jack"
Johnson, negro champion pugilist of
the world.
The marriage took place in the par
lor of the Johnson home, 3344 South
Wabash avenue.
Outside a crowd of whites and blacks
had gathered. The girl could hear the
jeers above the cheers as Johnson cov
ered her hand at the order of Rev. J.
H. Robinson, negro pastor of St. Mark's
African Methodist Episcopal church.
Chief of Police McWeeny had de
tailed policemen and detectives to pre
vent possible trouble and to drive
away moving picture photographers.
The white persons at the wedding
were Mr. and Mrs. Sig Hart, Mr. and
•Mrs. H. D. Wllkins, Miss Laura Smith
and Mr. and Mrs. Fred Danielson. The
bride formerly lived at the Danielson
home.
FEAST SPREAD FOR GUESTS
After the ceremony had ended and
Johnson had presented his bride with
a *2,_00 diamond ring, a big feast was
spread for the guests. In the center of
the table was a big wedding cake on
which stood two figures in white sugar,
representing the white bride and the
black groom.
In a public announcement after the
wedding the big black groom said he
and his bride would remain In Chicago
over night, starting tomorrow on an
automobile honeymoon trip.
Earlier in the day, when the negro
went to the county clerk's office to
obtain a marriage license, he met with
a rebuff from "Cupid" Legner, because
he could not prove that Miss Cameron
was of legal age.
Johnson appealed to County Clerk
Sweltzer. The girl was called on the
telephone and gave her age as "18 last
February.
The license was then issued, the clerk
explaining that he had no choice in the
matter.
PROSECUTION WILL CONTINUE
The marriage of tho negro to the
white girl will not affect the govern
ment's case against Johnson, as he
faces trial on Indictments based on the
charges of Belle Schrieber, another
white woman he is alleged to have
brought to Chicago for immoral pur
poses.
