('t)NSTANTINOl'Li:, Nov. fi (Asso ciated Prt-ss) . The Turkish Nationalist-, after overthrowing the sultan's gov rtninfnt and declaring him bereft of all Ijis civil power, are now peeking fresh conquests in a manner that may bring about trouble with the allies." Last night, after taking over control of Constantinople, the Nationalists de manded withdrawal of the allied troops from the city and served notice that al lied or American sailors would not be permitted to land froiy their warships at Kemalist ports except by special per mission of the Angora government.

B. Dempsey, yesterday marched on the Delaware & Hudson railroad and confiscated 12;) tons of coal from Us cars. The borough's nine churclies also were provided with fuel as a result of the raid, which followed re fusal of coal companies to sell their product in the borough.

CONSTANTINOPLE, Nov. 0 (Asso ciated Press).- The Turkish Nationalist government has handed a note to the allied high commissioners here to the effect that the warships of all nations must ask it for authorization to pass the straits of the Dardanelles, the llavas correspondent here has been informed.

As a result of the new situation cre ated in Constantinople by the demand ;f Ilafet Pasha that the allied military ceupation of the city should cease, the peace conference called to be - held at Lausanne Nov. lit has been postponed, possibly for a fortnight, it was an nounced here today. It is stated in authoritative circles that in no circumstance will the British jMint of view regarding the presence of allied troops in Constantinople le .-banned. The British intend to uphold he Mudania armistice ' agreement and remain in the neutral zone with their ) ps. An announcement of .wide interest is made by J. O. Ileidner & Son. piano dealers of Springfield, that William C. Taylor, founder and for 23 years pro prietor of Taylor's Music House, wi'l hereafter be connected with their busi ness. Mr. Taylor opened his store in , Springfield in 1NN4, and the name Tay- j lor's Music House grew to be almost a ; household word throughout Western ' New England. . Its. trade covered all of i the western cour.Ms. southern Vermont; and New Hampshire, and farther to ; other states, and it became a delightful : center for music, musicians and musical activities. In 1!!J7 Mr. Taylor sold to, Frederick O. Howe, who had been his manager and who retained the old firm j name of Taylor's Music House. Since (selling Mr. Taylor has devoted his time j lo private affairs and the interests of the i Orpheus Club and May Festival Chorus, j with .'each of which he lias been con- ' itecied for years. The Ileidner Com- . pany, who have In-en in business for 40 yenrs. 'opened in March this year in the Taylor's .Music House store at 12 Main street, Springfield. They bought The' Victor Talking Machine department of the business, added their own line of piaros, and have grown steadily in the esteem of the region. Mr. Taylor's re turn to active connection with the piano trade will be haled with joy-by a large number of people. He will have charge of th" selecting and buying of pianos for the Ileidner Company; :md his experience ami knowledge are at the disposal of their customers. Advertise ment. . ! Two Serious Problems. LONDON, Nov. (Associated Press). The new upheaval in Turkey, and es pecially Constantinople, is regarded in Lordon as involving at least two serious rol.lems. the, main one being whether he action of the Nationalists is going o revive trouble in the Near East. What eTect tleposing of the sultai vouh! have upon the Islam world is the - 'co'id big topic commented upon by the Z i-i tish newspapers. In (Jreat Britain there is a sron? pinion that the Kemalisfs. flushed b; heir recent conquest and relying per 'saps on the "support of Russia, intend to challenge the powers of Europe. They iifvc succeeded in circumventing one im portant clause in the Mudan'a armistice. : ay;s the Times, which adds that the 'vcmalists are apparently engaged in in fractions upon the remaining clauses. jTho allies are confronted with a fresh challenge, and before the Lusanne peace 'onference meets they may find a new hesis for determining their attitude o ,;ard Turkey." the Times continues. "At few moments since the World war has ) eed for united action by the allies been mo'-e urgently necessary than today." There is ;v rumor here that the Kein-,-i lists are now aiming to occupy western Thrace.

Tho-'f in India who oh'ct to ti-- Vi t ona'i-t actions are said to regard with !'-e greatest disfavor the arrogant way that Angora has treated them.

This is No. 8 of a series of political advertisements issued by the opponents of Mr. Barber's candidacy for representative in the next legislature. Their object is to show why Mr. Barber is not justified in asking re-election why, in the opinion of his opponents, he is not fitted to represent Brattleboro. Personalities have had no place in these advertise ments, no more than they have in the campaign so far as , Mr. Barber's opponents were concerned. Danger of Lawyer Legislatures, Etc. Brattleboro voters have doubtless heard enough about Frank E. Barber's legislative record. Mr. Barber himself tries to make out it was good, but that doesn't explain away the 20-eent state tax of last year and the 40-cent tax of this year. Taxes can't be explained away; they have to be paid. There were nine lawyers in the legislature of 1921. Eight of them held important committee chairmanships.- There are 15 lawyers among the candidates for the House of Representative of 1923 in addition to "three lawyer-candidates for the Senate. At least six of them, including Mr. Barber, have been avowed candidates for speaker of the house (which pays $10 a day) ever since they were nominated. Not all of them expect to get the speakership but all of them have in mind "trading" 'their support for a good committee appointment. In view of the importance of committee- chairmen in the state's legislative scheme thoughtful voters may well hesitate about making it possible for all the important chairmanships to be dominated by one class of men the lawyers. ' In one of its last week's issues The Rutland Herald, comment ing upon Mr. Barber's campaign,, made this significant utterance : "It looks to The Herald as though candidates in a hot contest could 'make more votes by a' definite plan of retrenchment, rather than by explaining 'how come' a ten-million dollar budget and a 40 cent tax.". Mr. Barber has presented no definite plan of retrenchment for the simple reason that so far as is known he has none. He had none in the legislature of 1921. To say that he should be sent back to Montpelier merely be cause he is a Republican is as sensible as it would be to urge his re turn because he wore a particular kind of necktie. He would be Frank E. Barber just the same whether he ran as a Democrat or a Progressive or an I. W. W. , ' - If Brattleboro voters decide to send Mr. Barber back to Montpelier they will go on record in favor of what Mr. Barber did in the last legislature. They will, in effect, express approval of the 40-cent state tax, which cost Brattleboro taxpayers $3-1,681.93, and may expect from the next legislature the same sort of "economy."
