x Secretary Grey Agrees to Conference
IT on Bulgaria With Other
I af
c i N Powers
1r
gLondon Oct 13lI jswolsky the
Russian foreign minis r has suc
ceeded in impressing upon Sir Ed
L
ward Grey the British secretary of
r
foreign affairs the nece ssity that not
only should a conlerenc j of the pow
i 7ers be held to settle th4 crisis in the
t near east but that ti4s conference
should take under ady sement other
questions besides those Involved in
the annexation by Austria of Bosnia
and Herzegovina and the declaration
4 L of Bulgarian independence
This change of front ton the part of
Great Britain which has caused
treat surprise was announced by the
foreign office at the conclusion ota
long conference between Sir Edward
Grey and K Iswolsky after a meet
ft ring of the cabinet in the morning at
postt
t tion he had taken and explained the
views of the Russian foreign minis
ier Sir Edwards secretary in mak
c ing the announcement said
i It may be affirmed with certainty
r ihat both ministers concur in the ne
essity for a conference and that the
I pourparlers at the foreign office fol
S lowing as they do on the FrancoRus
y sian negotiations on the same Sub
Ject have smoothed away some of
the difficulties which were in the way
j It Is now regarded as probable that
the latest events in the near east also
necessitate the enlarging of the scope
of the questions to be discussed at the
conference
conferenceFurther
z Further than this nothing could be
I ascertained officially as to the ques
i tions M Iswolsky desires to include
In fact it is doubtful if it has been
decided what shall be taken up in ad
t dition to the two actions which
brought about the crisis for it was
intimated that the pourparlers at the
British foreign office have not yet
teen concluded and may continue for
everal days tI Iswplskyinteide1
toka for Parrson W fecdlY our
ne said that his departure would not
DO possible until Thursday and that
ne might remain in London even
longer than that
It is doubted whether Russia is anx
ious to reopen tbs Dardaneles for the
present for if this Is done it must be
for all nations and Russia is not like
Ty to desire that while her fleet is so
weak Besides other treaties in ad
dition to the treaty of Berlin would
be involved
involvedThe
The only point In her previous
stand Great Britain IB continuing to
insist upon apparently Is that no mod
ification of a treaty can be permitted
without the consent of all parties to
that treaty and at her proposal the
powers have instructed their ambassa
dors at Constantinople to reaffirm
this principle What end can be
served by this is not stated by the
foreign office but it can hardly be ex
pected that either Bulgaria or Aus
triaHungary will consent to restore
the legal status in Bulgaria and Bds
I nla and Herzegovina before the ques
tions of independence and annexation
are considered as the powers have
decided must be done with respect to
the island of Crate
Warns Reading Public j
SParis Oct 13 The Sofia corre
pond nt of the Temps warns his
readers against placing too much re
I fiance in the pacific assurances ema
nating from Bulgaria He says that
the enthusiasm of the people is very
great and that Prince Ferdinand has
had tremendous ovations wherever he
hall appeared The cabinet would pre
fer to go to war to having Bulgarias
independence questioned There are
today 110000 men under arms The
minister of war is confident TheI
Bulgarian army could reach Constan I
tinople before British ships could
i
pus the Bosphorus or before Russia
could block the way at Burgas
Crown Prince Causes Uneasiness
Vienna Oct 13The inflammatory
j
speeches of Crown Prince George of
ervia who is inciting the people to
< war while his father King Peter has
observed an attitude of caution
causes considerable uneasiness in offi
J cial circles in Belgrade according to
dispatches received here There is
f less fear of war than of a dynastic
crisis and an attempt to place the
r crown prince on the throne The
Servian tr nler has tried vainly to
T suppress grown prince for it is
4 feared that he nSiV lead bands of vol
unteOrs against Bosnia or do some
thing equally rash

In Spring M

The Lexington and Eastern Rail
road company have just completed
the erection ofa new platform to be
used for loading and unloading
freight at their denot on North Main
street The new platform is the
first steps taken towards building the
long looked for new depot The lat
ter will not be built however until
spring But the fact that the pre
liminary improvements are being
made is Gratifying news to the pat
rons of the company here
The new platforin is only built up
to within twentyfive feet of the pres
depot This was done on account
of the new building going to extend
twentyfive feet farther east than
the present one The new platform J
was built so that it would join the
n w building I
The plans and specifications for
the new building have not been cpm
pleted yet but it is a settled fact
that it will be built next spring
