LuiviDc-n tiuvn The Sultan of Turkey May Yet Be Deposed. imiTlSH WAR FLKET; (JATHEIUMj! Tha Tribunal fur Trying the ftiurderer of Armenian Trove To lie n Whltewah Ins Farre (ireat Hritulu May Not Wall fur the Other I'owrrt hut May I'ut an End tn the Digrar-ful State of Affair llerelf. Constantinople. Sept. 14. Copyright. 18!6, liy Associated Press. A feeling of the great cut anxiety prevails In all circles here. There Is no hubt that crisis of extreme gravity has boen reached and that the powers are dis cussing the deposition of the ultan, that being, apparently, the only means of restoring quiet and confidence with in the Turkish empire. A Eritlsh Meet of about fifteen war vessels Is off the Island of Thasos and within easy strik ing distance should an emergency arise, and It Is believed that Great Iirltain will not hesitate Jo act alone In the matter of putting an end to the present disgraceful state of affairs If the other powers delay acting too long. As almost generally expected, the ex traordinary" tribunal which has been trying the men accused of massacring Armenians In the Btreets of this city and Its suburbs has turned out to be nothing more than a whitewashing court. Ilrutal Murderer Acquitted. The men who were arrested for bru tally killing two Armenians before the guardhouse of the British embassy and in full view of several Eritlsh oftlclals have been acquitted. As there was no possible doubt of their guilt, their ac quittal is regarded here as showing that it Is useless to expect that Mus sulmans will be punished for crimes committed against Armenians. This has aroused the greatest indignation among the foreign population here and has served to greatly Increase the feel ins; of uneasiness which prevails on all sides. The Europeans feel that the action of the extraordinary tribunal in acquitting the murderers whose guilt whs so fully proved shows that the peaceable residents of Constantinople are absolutely without any guarrantee that their lives and property are safe and that- they must henceforth depend almost entirely upon the warships of the powers for protection. It mi net at j standstill. Such a condition. It Is admitted, can not last for any length of time, as bus iness is at a standstill, to all Intents and purposes, and the impoverished condition of the Turkish treasury Is adding daily to the discontent pre vailing, not In the army and navy, but in Turkish official circles generally Many more officers have been arrested fur clR.ming their pay and for resign ing their commissions when informed that there was no money for them If this is the situation among the offi cers it may be Judged that the common soldiery are feeling still more Irritated Hut there is plenty of money and pro- visions for the strong bodyguard of the sultan and for the troops which con stantly surround the palace, and it Is believed that this display of force alone saves the sultan from witnessing demonstration which would surelv open his eyes to the disgraceful state of affairs existing. LETTER II V fiLADSTONE. Say the Concert of Europe I a Miserable, Disgraceful Mockery. London. Sept. 14. The lit. Ibn. W. E. Gladstone has written still another letter denouncing the sultan of Turkey In this communication Mr. Gladstone eavs: 'in mv onlnion the assassin and not hid Mohammedan subjects Is the au thor of the massacres. From first to last their atrocity has no parallel In re cent history. The conceit of Europe u a miserable, disgraceful mockery. and some sovereigns and governments have given direct countenance ana Biinnort to the assassin. Indeed, the presence of the embassies at Constan tinople is in itseir substantial coun tenance of support to him. and hi e-nlltv proceedings.

The public schools are scheduled to open on Monday, but the school board an nounced Filday night that the schools would not open on that date or any other date until Mayor Poran sends to tbe council a budget showing how much money there Is in the schoo fund, and how much there is likely to be there in the season. The schoc board claims that under the laws of the state. If It opened the schools without knowing what It was to sup port thetii with, it would be liable to be snt to states prison lor ironi six month to a vear.
