Testimony of Vice l'resldent Hopkins,
At 11 o'clock yesterday morning tho spo
clol ccmmlttco Investigating tbo labor
tionUrs resumed Ita work.
Mr, Jay Gould, of New York, tbo rail
road magnate, was examined. A largo
crowd tit spectator was present to ace tbe
distinguished peraonogu. Ho asked (or
the reading ot tho resolution under which
tbo ccmmlttco was acting, anil ho then
ttoted that bo was president ot tho Mis
souri l'aclflc railway, and that there were
no troubles existing on bis road In tho
allies named In tho resolution. Ho stated
fuitbcr that Micro vrcro 10,737 men la Iks
cmpTo) uf tbo road outstdo ot tbe general
rflce. ardthat since bis departure from
flew A'ctU bo has recolvod a dlipatcb fro-u
St. I.'ouls Stating that all was quiet on the
road; that, '-"JO freight trains moved out
ycsttnliijs the samo being an Incrcnso over
that date bat tear. He aid not, therefore,
think lie nr his road csmo within Iho pro
villous of the resolution.
Mr. llurnes replied that tho commlttco.
would iikoioucar from mm soraothiugoi
tue amcceucnis ut mo Missouri tannic.
'At tbo date ot tbe resolution under
which you oct," said Mr. Gould, "there
victc t'o dlmcultlcs existing between my
company and tho laborers."
Tills was said for tbo purpose of lnfdrm
lug Ibo commltteo that the statements
about to lie mado wcro made voluntarily.
Mr. Gould then entered Into a detailed
svtuttuienl ot tbo organization ot the Mis
souri Pacific, nnd quickly came down to the
riant labor troubles and the part bo bad
taken In them. Ho statod, parenthetically,
that all ha knew ot tbo causu of the troublo
csmo to him from bis subordinates He
was diet approicbcd by Mr. I'owdcrly about
tho thieatcncd troubles, and was Informed
mat mere were uiiiercruros arising on ac
count ot tho wages Or ml for tho limn.
Mr, Gould agreed o adjust thodlffer-
r.ccr, nun siaitu mat uo woutu instruct
Sir. Hoxle, tho vice president of tho Mis
eouil Pacific. In making this agreement,
lie told Mr. i'owdcrly mat no wantea it dis
tinctly understood that there should bo no
funics on mo .iiissoun racnic, anu tuat in
tLo future when dlssallsfaetlous aroso Mr.
I'owdcrly would coma to him and negotiate
en adjustment, ninu to muu. Mr. GouM
wns then (March 0) on tbo evo of bis do-
pamireiur a cruise witn uis lamuyiamo
Wist Indies'. Some time afterward Mr.
Guild khtned from Mr. Hoxle that a strlko
bed Lcu ordered by Mr. I'owderly, and
tbatuo excuse could bo given for It; that
it wes on account ot a man namoa nan,
e mplojcd liy the Texas 1'ucllic, wnicti was
lu tt,c bends of tho United States courts,
and not in tho controt ot the Missouri
l'aciac. At tho time of tbe strlko
bo Missouri racluc bad 14.J15 men
In Its employ, of which 8,717 wcro
Knlohts of Labor. These men wcro not
neccssaiy to tbo operation of tho business.

tized terminal points, arid the busluosj of

clzure," said Mr. Gould, "somothluz tbo
xarof liussla,wlth his millions of soldiers
rblnd lilni. wnold not bava dared to do."
U tbls point the statement ot Mr. Hoxle,
oncoming tun strike, wuicu uas ueeu
rimed, wis read by Gen. Swayno, Mr.
lould's attorney, lha statement sbowed
bat tbo strlko wus on account ot a fancied
:lletucri with another road, and nllegod
bat the Knights ul Labor bad assured .Mr.
Joxloijuettcforu tho strike that nogrlov-
nco existed against tbe Missouri l-acitic.
On March 0 a notice was postod, Mr.
Inula said, bv tbo ccucral superintendent

Mr. Gould said bo had always been nn
oflvocato of arbitration, and was porfoetiy
willing to rIvo the arbitration scheme pro
posedTiy Congress a thorough and fair trial,
If It becomo a law.
Mr. llurnes then asked tho witness about
tbe effect of pooling ou tho public Interests.
Mr. Gould thought It beneficial to rail
loads and to people who lived along lines
ol tbo roads.
Then In theory, said Mr, llurnes, compe
tition between two competing roads, say
the Fort Woyno and Lako Shoro roads to
Chicago, Is not beneficial t
To this Mr. Gould replied t "I'm not run
ning tbo roads. Better ask thosa familiar
with tbm."
Chairman Curtln sold bo regretted the
resolutions under which the commltteo
vi cio working did not permit an Inquiry Into
railroad building and watering of stock
generally, but Intimated that tho commlt
tco would not get to the bottom of the rail
toad problem. Mr. Gould said that par
tial s he would wait until the committee
made Its formal report before making any
inoro Investments. . ,
Gov. Curtln remarked Jocosely! "OU, I
gncM not. You may lako a llttlo shy at
Walt street." This brought out a laugh all
around, but It becamo uproarious when the
fovernor added: "And It you do, Mr,
iould, I would llko to bo your partner."
In rcnly to a question propounded In a
i.umltr of forms, Mr. Gould stated that
at no tlmo durlog bis conferences with
Messrs. I'owdcrly and McDowell did be
think ot taking tho matter of arbitration
out of tho bands ot Mr. Hoxle.
At 4:10 p. in. tho examination ot Mr.
Gould, having occupied nearly flvo hours,
was completed, anil no was uiscuargcu.
Mr. A. L, Hopklus, of New York, second
vice president of tho Missouri I'actflo, next
testified. Ho said at the outset that bo
knew very llttlo about tho strikes, which
Mr. Gould bad not stated, as bis sources ot
Information wcro the samo as thoso of Mr.
Gould. Ho believed tbo strlko would havo
been avoided If Mr. l'owderly had called
tho attention ot Messrs. Gould nnd Hoxlo
to tho differences before tbo strike began.
Mr. Hopkins described the Inconvonlonccs
Ibo people wore subjectod to by the strlko,
showing that many workmen In all kinds
nf business wcro thrown out. Mr. Hop
kins stated that ho bad heard that certsln
ecntlcmen prominently connected with tho
Knlgbts ot Labor were seen about brokers'
ofUccs In Now York, and that they wcro on
tLo short sldo of tho stock market. Being
pressed for tho names of the men, Mr.
Hopkins refused to glvo them, but said be
wouiu communicate me name oi ma in
formant to tbe committee "I think, how
ever," said ho, "that beforo you get through
with this Investigation you will get plenty
of evldiuco ou this point."
Adjourned until 11 o'clock to-day.

OIMECTIXCl TO Till! TAHtl'l' lltljti
Why It Is Opposed by llio Iron and
(Heel Assoolntlon.
Fiui.ADEi.rnu, April 33. The American
Iron and Steel Association odlclally an
nouuecs Its objections to tho tariff bill now
before Congress as follows:
First. On accountof Itsunconcealed offer
of assistance to the schemes ot foreign pro
ducers to obtain a larger share ot tbo mir
ktts of this country than they now pos
eif.s. Second.. Becauso ot tbo enttro aluonco ot
principle wblth characterizes Its composi
tion. Third. Because of tho Implication on tho
proposed repeal of tho duties on such raw
materials s lumber, silt, wool, bemp, and
flax, and In tbe proposed lnslntcnaucoot
slstlno- duties ou many manufactured pro-
ducts that tpo Interests of Amerlcsn manu
facturers are moi o to be considered in tho
f ramlnsr ot a tariff bill than tho Interests ot
Oiuer jwuermnii iiruuutcio. ,
Fourth. Because ot tbe absence of a single
provision for5 a correction of any ot tho
grave (.rrora affecting duties which are em
bodied In tho present tariff.
Fifth. 1'icaiiso Its Introduction Is a wholly
untiiccftnry dltturbauce ot busluess; be
cause It meets no want and removes no
grlevaneo of any American industry; bo
couso .Its enactment into a law would bo
followed by only iiitnous consequonces;
becouso It respond" to no patriotic Impulse;
because Its spirit and provisions are thor
oughly British an essentially un-American.
It Is a ratssuro of tbo crudest statesman
ship. No cruder tariff measure has ever
tmaiiated from nwaja and meanscommlt
teo beyond tbo ndvauco toward free trado
which is notlccablo In Its proposed additions
to tbo frco list. It simplifies nothing In the
present lei iff, but, on tho contrary, further
complicates tbo levjl'ig and collection of
duties, and Increases tho opportunities for
fiauds on the revnnuo by substituting ad
valorem for specific duties in many In
stances. Tho bill Is fiamcd In utter disre
gard of tho promises contained in tbo Chi
cago platform of 1881, ilpon which tho
present odmlnlstratlun camo into power.
Tbut it l not proposed to Injure auy do
mestic liiduttriis, but rather to promote
their heollhy growth. It is not cntltlod to
Urn reanect of tbe American Ueonle. and we
trust that It will uot receive tho approval of
ytur body.

"Tbo Discontent of Ilia Employed I
Ilim In I.nrira Degreo to thu flr,titiijr
nnd Heedless Ilxactlons of liui
ptojer." A meesige from tbo President relating
to tbo labor troubles was laid botoro tho
Senato yesterday. When It bad been roi 1
a question aroso as to tho committee to
nhlih it could most appropriately ho re
ferred whether tho Judlclsry commltteo
or the commltteo on education and labor.
It was Anally ordered printed, and tbe ques
tion of reference allowed to remain lo ahoy
aiico. Tbo text Is as follows i
TO TIinBENATC AND TUB tlol'SIS OP ItEP-
rn.SENTATivr.st Tho constitution Imposes
upon tbe 1'rcstdent thn dlty ot reeoni
meiidlug to the consideration ot Congress
from tlmo to tlmo such measures as ho
shall (udge necessary and expedient.
I am so deeply Impressed with tho Im
portance ot Immediately tnd thoughtfully
meeting the problem which rcceut events
nnd a tirrient condition hsva thrust unon
us. Involving tho settlement ot disputes
onsing fciween our laboring moti ami tneir
ctnplujers, that 1 urn constrained to recom
mend to Congrcts legislation upon tbls
serious and pressing subject.
Under our form of government tho valuo
ot labor os an clement ot national prosper
ity should be distinctly recognized, and tho
welfare of tbo lalmrlmz mn should bo re
garded as especially entitled to leglslatlvo
rare. In a country which offers to all Its
citizens tbo highest attainment of social
and political distinction Its worhlngmen
cannot justly or safely be considered as Ir
revocably consigned to thu limits ot a class,
and entitled to no atteotlon and allowed no
protest against neglect.
The laboring man, bearing In his hand an
Indlspensabla contribution to our growth
and progress, may well Insist, with manly
courage and as a right. Upon the simo rec
ognition from thoso who mako our laws as
Is accorded to any other citizen having a
valuable interest In charge; aud his reason
able demands should bo met In such a spirit
of appreciation ond fairness as to luduco a
contented and patriotic co-operation In tho
ochlctcmcot ot n grand national destiny.
A bile tho real Interests of labor aro not
promoted by a resort to threats and violent
manifestations, and whllo those who, under
the pretexts ot an advocacy of labor, wan
tonly attack Ibo rights of capital, and for
seuisu purposes or tuo jovu oi uisoruer bo it
seeds ot violence and dlscoutont, should
ntltber bo encouraged nor conciliated, all
legislation on tho subject should bo calmly
aud deliberately undertaken, with no pur
pose ot satisfying unreasonable demauds or
gaining partisan advantage.
The present condition ot tho relations
between labor and capital Is far from satis
factory. Tho discontent ot tho employed
is due in a large degree to tbo graplng and
heedless exactions of employers, and tho
alleged discrimination In favor of capital as
an object of governmental attention. It
mutt alto be conceded that tbo laboring
men aro not always careful tn avoid cause
lirs and unjustlllablo disturbance
Though the Importance of a better accord
Utuicn tbtse interests Is apparent. It must
be I orno In mind that any effort In that di
itctlou bv thu federal eoverumcut must bo
gieutly limited by constitutional restric
tions. Tluro are many grievances which
legislation by Congress cannot redress, end
many conditions which cannot by such
means oe reioiineu.
I em satisfied, however, that something
may I e donu under federal authority to pro
vent tbe disturbances which so often arise
from disputes lietn ceil employers and tbo
employed, and which at times seriously
threaten tbo bnslners Interests ot tbetonn
try; and In my opinion tho proper thnory
upon which to proceed Is that of voluntary
arbitration as tbu means ot settling those
difficulties.
But I suggest that Instead of arbitrators
chosen In tbe bent ot coiifllutlmr claims,
and after each dispute shall arlso, fur the
purpose of detci mining tbo same, there bo
treated n commission of labor, consisting
of tbrio members, who shall bo regular of
111 era of tho government, charged among
ether duties Willi tho consideration and set
tle ment, when possible, of all controversies
between Isl or and capital,
A commission thus organized would havo
tbo nrtvnntugo of being a stable body, and
Its members, as they (joined cxuerluncu,
would constantly Improve In their ability
tn deol Intelligently ond usefully with tbo
questions which might bo submitted to
them. If arbitrators aro chosen for tempo
lory service os each case of dispute arises,
experience and familiarity with much that Is
Involved In tho question will bo Incktbsr,
extreme poitlsaushlp and bias will be thu
qualifications sought on either side, and
frenutnt complaints of unfairness and par
tiality will bo Inevitable. Tho Imposition
upon n federal court ot a duty so foreign to
tbu Judicial fuuctlon.ni tbo selection nt an
arbitrator In such cutis, Is nt least ot doubt
ful proprletj.
Tbo establishment by federal authority
of such a bureau would bo a Just nnd sen
sible let ogultlou of tho values of labor, and
Its tight to to represented In tho depart
ments of tbo government. So 'far as Its
conciliatory ofllecs shall have relation to
disturbance which Interfered with tr.nslt
and commerce between tho states. Its ex
lslerco wstild be Justified, under tbo pro
visions ot tbo constitution, which gives to
Congress tbo powir to "rcgulato commerce
with foreign nations and among tho several
states." And In tbe frequent disputes bo
twten tho laboring men and their cm
plot era. of less extent, and tbo conse
quences ot which aro confined within stato
limits aud threaten domestla violence, the
Interposition of such a commission might
bo tendered, upon tbo application of tbo
legislature or oxccutlvo of a state, undor
tbo constitutional provision which requires
tbo general go eminent to -protect" each
of tbo states "against domestla violence."
If such a cninmlsslou were fairly organ
ized tbe risk of a Io3o of popular support
and rjmpsthy resulting from a refusal to
riilnittto so peaceful an Instrumentality
would constrain bothpartles to such disputes
to invoko Its interference nnd abide by Its
decisions, Tin lo would also bo good rea
son to bopo that the very exlstenco nt such
an accucy would linllo application to Itfor
advice and counsel, frequently resulting In
llio moiuunco oi couivuiiou auu nusuuuer-
ktiilirihtfl'.
It tbu usefulness of such a commission
is doubted hicauso it mlitbt lack power to
infcrre Its decisions much encourogoment
Is derived fiom the rontcded good that has
been accomplished by tho mllrnid commis
sions which !mu bleu organized In many ot
tbu states, which, hnvlng llttlo more than
advisory power, havo exerted a mostsilu
tsry lulluencd In tbo settlement of ellsputos
bitwecn cinilllctlng Interests.
In July. 1HS4, by a law of Congress, a
bureau of labor wns established and placed
In rhoreo of a commissioner of labor, who
Is tiqulrrd to "colltct Information upon tbo
subject nt labor, Ita relations to capital, tho
Lours of lolxir, nnd tbo earnings ot libor
li g ir.in and women, nnd tho means ot pro
n mil g llielr material, social, Intellectual,
r.t d moral prosperity."
Iliecoiumtss on which I sutrtrest could
roilU lctnuiftfied upmi tho bureau thus
bill oil mgaUzid by tbe addition ot two
nioie ct iniiilstlonsrs and by eupplomentltig
tLedulltenow Imimscd upon It by suck

mit the eninmlsslouers to uct as arbitrator
when necessary bttwiin labor nnd capital'
undirtueb limitations and upon such occa
sions as should bo ileimcd proper aud use
ful. Vowcr should also bo distinctly conferred
mitii this bureau to Investigate tbo causes
of oil disputes as they occur, whether sub
mitted fur orbitiutlon or not, so that In
foi niatlon moy always bo at hand to aid
legislation on the subject when necessary
and desirable. Oiioviiii Ci.Kvm.iM).

The I'onrtli Victory This AVoelc for Hie
Nntiminls A Detailed Acrnunt of tho
Oaine and Scores of Other Games.
Tho Nationals won their fourth cotiscctt
tlvo victory this week yesterday afternoon
by defeating the Ilochestcrs In u quickly
played game that was witnessed by n
ibousaud spectators. Tho visitors livl
their best bsltcry Homer and Warner to
pitch and catch for them, but It was ot no
trvnll, asthobomo nine had llttlo dlfllcutty
in coming out tho victor, and won tho gJtno
easily by tho score of 8 to 3.
Baiicioll'srlub mado a good showing In
tho first inning by earning a run, but wcro
mioblo to keep the good work up, and tbe
Seimo bojo took advantage of their weak
ess ond scored pretty much when and bow
they liked. Tho visitors made soma costly
terrors width helped tho Nationals to gain
rail's, on! tboy did not play with that vim
and quickness necessary to keep the local
team from scoring. In fact tho Itochoster
team may bo n good one for tho State As
socJatlon, In which they arc In, hut they
aro totally unable to ope with Leaguu
clnbo.
Start plajedaflno gamo at first and lad
tbo batting, and Impressed tho audience fa
iforably, Carroll mado a fluo catch In left
fjeld, ond Knowlcs did somo pood work.
Mike Illncs taught Barr In good stylo and
threw to bases In great shape. Indeed, ho
Surprised even his best friends, and it Is to
be boned that ha will keep this good work
up; If ho dots, tho Nationals need havo no
tear as to bis ability to do his duty behind
Ibo bat. Barr pitched a fair game; but bo
would please bis friends, as woll 'as better
Ills rcrord, If ho would tako a fow lessons
from Shaw In tho way bo should Held his
position. A pitcher has other duties to
ijerfoim besides pitching tbu bill, and
should back up (its fielders when called
upon. Kenzcl led the batting for tho visit
ers, and -Whitney and l'arkcr distinguished
themselves in tho Held. There will bo no
game to-day, but ou Saturday tho Yolo Col

CONGRESSIONAL SUMMARY.
1.NTEI1FST1NO I'ltOCIXDI.VOS IS' BOTH
HOUSKS.
Itnllronit I.nnd Grant Taxation nnd
Interstate Commerce in tho Senate
Hirer anil Harbor Appropriation 11111
In llio House,
On motion of Mr. Van Wyck tho Senato
took up tho bill providing for tbo taxation
of railroad land grants, upon which Mr,
Van Wyck briefly addressed tho Senate.
After giving a history of tho movement
for taxing railroad Unds, Mr, Van Wyck
said the pcoplo had given deep consider
ation to tho subject, and there was much
mjstcry omongthem as to why railroad
companies should bold undisputed tlllo to
millions of acres of lands, and yet bo ex
t mpled f torn statu and local taxation. Not
only. Indeed, were tbo roads not subject to
taxation for these lands, but tho fact thst
tbo exemption wss to contlnuo for somo
vtors w as used by the companies In selling
iho lands to secure to themselves a better
price. Tbo bill would overcomo tho dim
cully Involved to stiles, counties, and com
munities, bv tbo exemption complained of.
It was only applying tho samo rule to cor
porate property that was applied to tho
property of privaio citizens.
Mr. Blair said tho lands referred to had
been valueless till the railroad were built.
Minis- of them were still valueless to the
rcnitpsulca that bad spent largo amounts of
in oi ey on tbelaltb of tbe original grant,
r.ntiimoiu tracts of them were aucU as
could not jet lo disposed ut. Ho would
fotnrnu fiiieiiflincut providing that wher
ever tbu lands were worth more than $2.50
on tcro they might bo taxed. The bill
would not be for ttio Interest of tho peoplo
at largo unless It wos to no materially
otnciiiled. Mortgages ulrcady effected
should bo protected ogalnst tbo proposed
luxation; the taxation should be based on a
Just valuation ot tho land compared with
adjacent land. Mr. Blair suggested also
that tn cose of auy sale of tbe lauds because
of (be taxation, uo Individual purchaser
should bo allowed to buy morn tlun 100
acres. Mr. Blair read amendments Intended
In lo proposed hyhlmat the proper tlmo
lo e flee t tho purposes Indicated.
Fuilher amendments were suggested by
Mr. Edmunds end Mr. Allison, and, thu
Lour of 2 o'clock arriving, tbo bill went uver.
The ti-teistnle commerce bill was placed
l.rforo thn Senate.
Mr. tjewcll offered an amendment cover
lug a number of points; ono of which was
to subject to tbu provisions ot tbo bill tho
Conodlan roods having through traOlo
from points III the United States to tho sea
I oard; also roads iiinntng through only one
ttote In competition with roads tint ruu
through several states to the samo point;
that persons or corporations engaging In
Intcrttata commerce shall ilrst get allccnsa
front tho railroad commissioners, tho license
to In? revocable for breach of conditions.
Mr. Miller and Mr. Inealls thought the
piovlslnn relating to railroads running
through only onu stato Involved a matter
i.ot within tho control ot Congress.
Mr. Citllom said tbo committee bad con
sidered some of tbo piovlsloua of Mr. Sew
ill's amendment and had concluded not to
irrnmmpiid them.
Mr. Powell did uot oco bow Amerlcau
loads could compete with Cauadlan roads
rn through traffic without tho adoption ot
his ctnrndmrnt.
Mr. Cullora severely animadverted on
tbo license .feature of Mr. Sowell's amen 1
mci.t. It would lo destructive, be said, of too
(hipping business ot tbo lakes. Hu rldl
lUledtCo Idea of requiring licenses for
tiMimbeiats "on God's highway." He re
rotdul this feature as toniethlus .of a Joke
trrrclrated by Mr. Sew ell on tbo Senate.
Mr. Conger wished tho rivers of New
Jersey werel-etlerrepiesented In the Senate.
Mr. Sewill declaimed any desire to In
terfile wllh tbu shipping ItitercsU. Ho
wmild bo glad lo modify hla iimcndmeut to
sotlsty thn senator from Michigan ou tbls
point. W hut hu wauted to do was to p ro
ll ct American retinoids from tho cnurso
wide h might bu pursued by Cauadlan
llilouc.li limn, which, without tills proposeiL,
inieueliuci t, would not bu subject to this
till. He wonted to protect all railroad
I iore.it) a eluss of propertj from which 25
jcrccnt, of tbp people eif New Jersey mado
llieir Jivirg uirccuy eir iiiuircctiy. Any
incut reduction lu tbo value ut that prop
tilt would be a public calamity.
Mr. Miller tnought tho bill, us reported
firm commit He, sullltlent for the protec
Hi uot llm Interests ot nur own lines. Mr.
Miller said tbo bill reported fromcoiumlttoe
covered substantially thu points agreed on
1 y shippers and railroad men allku as best
cole ulated tn servo the best public purposes.
A commission would be found practicable
midiuccissful. He (Mr. Miller) did not
lelltve the people of New York would ba
willing tn give up their I at I road commis
sion. Tbe principal complaints mido
egolnst railroads bod been against certain
Inttrstuto commerce features. This bill
pli'MPtcd all drawbacks, rebates, and
unjust discriminations. That there bad
Lee n great uiijustlco In railroad man
rpcmciit wos plain. Growing cities bad
I riu t rushed out and uuw cities ab
solutely rreotcd by railroad discrimina
tion, Mr. Miller discussed tho "long and
sboit haul" question, and lauded tho pro
Virion of the bill relating to It. Tho bill, bo
rold, did not authorize the commissioners
to llx freight chorees. Ho thought It was
n.fl'cln.t for It to provldo against discrimi
nation. Ibo commission would, bo u court
before which persons having complaints
ciuldconia and could, without expense,
have the complaints heard.
On motion of Mr. Hoar tho Senate, at 4
oclrckp. in., went Into exicutlvo session.
Al Bil5 thu doors wcro reipencd at 1 tbi
Stuoto adjourned.

Turks aro tbo aggressors. List Tiutliy
nlgbt a body ot troops drawn from th
Tuiklsh outposts attempted to surprlso a

upon territory which is allagol to bt

sldo bos' a right to occupy. Tbo attack wss
smoitlyrepulsed.und tbo Turks lied, closely
pursued by tho Greeks. In their relroit
tbo Turks abandoned two Hold pieces which
fell Into tbo bands ot the pursuers. Tha
Greeks at tho end ot tho pursuit occupied
and Intrenched themselves In three posi
tions, which wcro clearly upon Turkish
territory. Tho Greek government '
has fordcrrd them to Immediately
evacuate tbeso positions and return t
Greek territory. The disposition at Athens
is to minimize the occurrence, and lo treat
it as on unauthorized affair of outposts, for
which no reprisal Is to lie attempted.
