IMMEDIATE WAR FACES EUROPE Princo Ferdinand to Declare tho Independence of Bulgaria and Roumelia, GRAB BY AUSTRIA-HUNGARY Will Anne of llnsnln n ml Herrum hoi Wnr between Itiilanrln n ml Tur key Seems Certain tint It Ar mies .Mnhlllrliii- on Ihr JlnnliT. London, Oct. 4. Events wliich threaten to rli.ingp tlin political r.iic uf Europe ro crystallizing with IlKl'tnlfig rapidity. Almost over night the horizon of the near V'.tM, which seemed gradually A,. be assuming n peaecrul .ipponnmec, has become crowded with war cloud. News roaches hero from several sources that two definite strokes ate Impending which cannot full to bring matters to a crisis, mid poihups force an Immediate wnr One l the proclamation by 1'ilnco Ferdinand of the Independence of Hul Sarin, whlrh will Include llouniclla taking for himself the title of "Czar." Tho other la an announcement by Austria Hungary of the practical nnnovitlon of the provinces of Honda and Hotzogovinit as appanagis of the Austvci-Hpungarian crown. Either action will be equivalent to the tearing up of tin- treaty of I!or lln, while Prince Ferdinand's eottrsti cems almost certain to precipitate a war between Rulgarln ami Turkey. Roforo these possibilities, the cuariel over the i;ast noumellan secilon of the Orient railway sinks Into insig nificance llnth armies nre reported to be quietly and swiftly mobilizing near the borders. Mulimrln Is said to bo buying up munitions and horses on an extensive scale. The HulKarl.-ins have faith in their nrmv which has reached a high stato of efficiency, although it Is perhaps 'arklng in officers and the war, for which r.nlgarlu has Ions been sus pected of preparing' could be fought with more advantage for her now than when the new Turkish govern ment hail time to reorganize Its rorces, who h have become enervated by the corruption and neglect of tho old regime. The Emperor of Austria, it is under stood, has dispatched a letter to the president of France, rotting forth his Intentions regarding Hosnla and Herze govina, although the contents of the let ter are kept secret, nnd ho is sending similar notes to the other powers. It stems Incredible that Emperor Francis Joseph, who always has been a scrupulous observer of forms, should reveal his plans to tho rulers of other nations before he has communicated them to his own Parliament. One explanation Is that the letter was not Intended for delivery until Tuesday when Identical notes would bo presenteil to the other powers . , While Austria's action with regard to the two provinces mny not technically b" -ailed annexation, it Is believed It will amount to that, whatever It may be called. Apparently the Emperor is determined that the destiny of these provinces shall be Austrian not Turkish. For thirty years they have h.en admlnlstorod hv Austria-Hungary, hut they have always remained theoretically Turkish. Till-: HRITI&H WITI I TI'HKICV. English public opinion Is with Turkey In the Bulgarian dispute, as .ill the power1- exeept Austria seem not to be; anil It remains to be seen what the Itritish attitude will be toward annexation If that becomes a fact Austria Is suspected of enrowni'Jing the recent Ilu'igat'liin Turkish trouble for her own interests, but the Hritlsh gov ernment has made proposals to the two countries looking to the settlement of the alhvav case, and tho other powers have agreed to give sup) -rt to the plan, which contemplates the temporary res toratlon of the railway to Turkev, "to rave hfr face," ami the transferrem o from the company to tho linlgarlmi gov ernment The English press expresses surprise that Austria and Rulgnrla should pbt BKninst Turkey, and nsks If the groat powers will submit to having obstacles placed In the way of tho regeneration of Turkey.

Initiative in the publication of the text of the Emperor's letter to Frnn cls Joseph himself, but information, originating apparently from an au thorized Vienna source, indicates that the letter exposes the general situa tion In the Orient nnd emphasizes tho possible consequences of a Turco-I!ul-,'arlan conillct and Uo position Aus ttia would be placed li thereby. The Kmporor. It Is stated, declares that he will not take the Initiative in breaking up the Berlin treaty, but that Austro-Hungarlan Interests force him to take Into neonunt certain eventualities Independent of his will, imtalde results which may follow the proclamation nf tho Independence of liulgarla. which. he says, appears Imminent.

WHAT OUR NEIGHBORS SAT IlurllnRlnit finlns a .Splendid Orator nd a Oood t'ltlaen. (From tho Honnlngton Runner.) "Spunky Lamoille" will miss Roger W. Hulhurd of Hydo Park, who has decided to take up his residence In Rttrlltigton, having been attracted from tho com munity with which ho had been Idcnti fled ever stneo ho beifan tho practice of law by the opportunities of a largo field Hulhurd has not only been closely iden tified with the political activities of tho scrappy bailiwick but ho has won tho respect and eonlldeneo of all classes of people and has made nit enviable prosl- tlon In his profession. As u political speaker he has few centals In Vermont and If the change of location results In bringing him tnoto frequently before tho public the State at large will bcnellt through tho little county's loss. A VERMONT WIFE'S INFLL'ENCI (From the Enoshurgh Standard.) W. Rotirko Cochran, the -well known democratic eirator and congressman, In a recent Interview at Hostetn, said: "Yes, I shall support Hryan; lu Is the best candidate the democrats could put up. Tuft, however, is the greatest and best uuallfled nominee ever offered In any republic In the world. lie; Is a greater man than Roosevelt, and when surrounded by the same environments that made Roosevelt great will prove a bigger man. Tnft Is a wonderful admin istrator, the greatest the country has ever seen and Is' a wonderful worker." It Is reasonable to assume that Mr. Cochran's estimate of Taft has been, par tially acqu'rid through his Vermont father-lti-law. Judge j,e, whose know ledge of Taft Is intimate and accurate. Rut whatever formed his opinion of tho republican nominee t is certainly sound, and the question naturally arises, why doesn't he support him. He can always oto for Hrvan, so why not vote tills tlmo for Taft ? RUTLAND COUNTY MURDER CASE. (From the Rutland News.) With three men In Rutland county court either pleading guilty or being coll ected of murder In the second degree within a week It would appear that the heavy criminal docket In that county Is being cleared up, and with considerable credit to the prosecuting attorney. Tito fact that two pleaded guilty is In Itself a testimonial of the thorough manner In which Attorney Lawrence has looked up the cases. T! at these murders havo oc curred aniemt foreigners makes It of double credit as It Is ten times harder to get at dls-putes and controversies be tween people who speak an unfamiliar language. Two havo b"en sentenced to llfo Im prisonment. It , an be said quickly nnd little comprehen I-d, but it means a lot It, means that tho men will be removed frtun' 'th'A faocavtj- 'of Itiio world and bo separated from liberty by walls all tho rest erf tbelr'slay,HIt. invans practically taking away the.r llve without killing them and the chances arc that each will sometime consider In his mind whether death or Imprisonment for life Is moro preferable. THE DEER SEASON. (From the Decrtleld Valley Times.) Apropos of (Same Commissioner Thomas's plan to recommend a longer season on deer to the coming fesslon of the Legislature, for tho rea son that they are Inei easing too tapldly. nnd that the payment of damage to crops by these animals Is becoming a serious drain on the State echecquer, there are several other good reasons why a longer open season Is desirable, chief among which Is that It would tend to lessen tho number of shooting accidents of late years incident to the short open season. During the open week In the past few yeats, thousands of hunters, nrmed with every description of nenpon from a blun deiblts loaded witli slugs to a modern high-power rlllo hae been crowded Into the woods and fie Ms between two Sun days; many of tl.eso are the merest amateurs, lo whoso excited fancy a mov ing bush or rustling leaf means "game." and without stopping to consider tho pos- I slble consequences are prono to empty their shooting Iron In the general direc tion with a result that has too often proved disastrous. With a longer open season the num ber of persot.i hunting on a given day would bo de reased, and the number of Hhootlng ai' lents lessened In propor tion. Another, ' .t perhaps less Important argument for lengthening the season Is that It won I materially Increase the revenue! to the Stato In non-resident license fees, most sportsmen of tills class deeming fifteen dollars too high a tax for six days' hunting, many having hunt ed the entire lx days In past seasons without getting even a sight of u deer. Maine has an open season of twelve neeks with local exceptions; some coun ties In New Hampshire havo two months' open season, and tho same Is true of New York, nnd In nono of these States Is the non-resident license fco higher than in Vermont. VERMONT TOOK THE INITIATIVE. (From tro Ht. Albans Mesenger.) Tho Ilurlli'Klon Free Press puts the situation pn ty plainly and altogether truthfully. R -ys: The last Legislature not only committed Vermont to the tlttlng observance of tho 30oth anniversary of the discovery of Lako Champlaln, but It also took tlie Initiative In tho matter of Inviting Nc"' York nnd Canada to Join with our State In such commemoration. There Is no longer question whether Ver mont will take measures to fittingly celc brate the Mtorlc event In question. Hav ing put our liand lo the plow we cannot well turn back." Vermont Is ' honor committed to the successful accomplishment of tho cause sho hns Initiated, and no notions of short-sleli'eJ economy should Induce tho lawmakers to humlllato tho Stato by failure to provide sufficient means for doing her fair share of tho work.

Tho address by the retiring president on ''Profession al Fellowship" was an earnest plea for a cleiser relationship between the court and bar of Vermont. A memorial sketch of the late J. D. Dcnlsnn of Randolph was reatl by N. Im Hoyden and one of the late .Senator Redllold I'roctor by ex-Governor E. J. Ormsbee. Following these formal exercises the report of tho committee on juris piudencr, and law reform was made by Judge E. C. Mower of Rurllngton. H contained otto recommendation that provoked a discussion that lasted for moro than two hours. It was In sub stnnce that tho law should bo changed so that cases shall not he sent back from the supremo court for a new trial except In cases of substantial er ror, not on technicalities. The dis cussion was on whether the remedy should bo by statute eir rule of tho court. RECOMMENDATIONS ADOPTED, The report of the committee on law reform and Jurisprudence was further discussed and the following recom mendatlons were adopted: In amendment of sections USD, 1S90 and 1SS1 of the public statutes so that the survhlng party may bo a witness In his own favor to meet or explnln tho testimony of living wit nesses produced against him whatever the facts or circumstances to which they may testify. In amendment nf cnurt rules nnd statute sn that Issue may be Joined more expe-dltottsly both at law and In chancery. A statuto allowing amend ments from otto form of aetlon to an other and Joinder of forms as nt prefent prohlblte-d. Discussion of the proposed amendment providing for some extension of the re ference system as at present constituted was postponed until to-morrow and tho association rejected the proposed amend ment which made, provision whereby the plaintiff may bring suit directly to the county court at his election In cases where In appeal to county court Is now allowed.

A distinct connection has been found, so the special agents of tho federal treasury department and tha local custom houso detectives say, itmuiiK all the.so cases, so that already tho evidence points to a widespread 'conspiracy In Rlovcs."
