BY ASSOCIATED PRESS. Washington, Oct. SO. Turkey's en trance into the field of warlike opera tions, though, not unexpected, has caused a sensation In official circles here because of the probable far reaching effect of this action. Prob ably no one factor in the great Euro pean struggle Is regarded so uncer tain quantity and quality as the Tur kish empire. The probability that by yesterday's act of war against Rus sia, the Balkan states may be drawn into the great conflict, thereby cutting off a vast quantity of food supplies has brought home to the officials here the realization of the interest of the United States in this last development. The result of Turkey's entry upon the scene as a belligerent as viewed by the military experts here from a pure ly technical point of view will be to greatly embarrassed Iissia at the out set. In official Washington for months It has been known that the Ottoman gov ernment was preparing for military operations. No dispatches have been received from Constantinople in sev eral days. , Ambassador Morgenthau previously had reported the activities of the war party, the efforts of the large com mercial Interests of Turkey, already weakened by previous wars .to pre serve Turkey's neutrality and of the critical conversations between the Tur kish foreign office and the diplomatic representatives of the belligerent countries. TURKS WERE PREPARING. Diplomatic representatives in Wash ington of the allied powers have be lieved from the outset that as soon as Turkey had fully prepared her army and navy for the conflict she would cast the die for war. Great Britain, Russia and France have, through their ambassadors, made it plain to Turkey, it is understood, what the consequences of her entry might be. They are un derstood to be that the Anglo-French fleet, which has been comparatively unoccupied In the Mediterranean would bombard the ports of Asia Minor, Greece would probably Join the allies against Turkey and that tie Balkan states might be drawn Into the "gen eral imhroglio with the possibility that Italy might be found fighting Turkey as well. That the conflict might extend to Egypt, Persia or Arabia with the pos- sibility of the Japanese fleet support ing operations of the Allies has oeen discussed here in quarters . friendly to the Allies. When reports were current of war among Musselmen in India, It was made clear that Japan would offer her services to Great Britain, feeling that the spirit of the Anglo-Japanese alli ance compelled her to support her ally in maintaining the special interests or England in Easte The general opi least in the begU time thereafter greatly circumscri and naval activits One of the unt . the political side .

The policy of Greece aa previously announced by Minister Schliemann hre would cause Greece to enter tne war in case any of the peaceful Balkan I states should take up arms. No offi cial dispatches had reached the Greek legation early today. Minister Schlie mann suggested that it was possiole that the reported action of the Tur kish warships might have been prompted by a mutiny of the crew. TURKEY'S WAR STRENGTH. The full war strength of Turkeys army is 300,000 trained men, according to statistics here, but m addition it is believed that there are about 400,000 regulars, some of whom actually have, joined the army while the rest are ready to do so.

The battleships are old and none has guns larger than eleven Inch. Two of the four cruisers are the Goeben and Breslau recently secured from Germany. The ten torpedo boats range from 124 to 167 tons and are of 26 and 27' knots In speed. The oldest was laid In 1901. The twenty-eight small gun boats range from 18 to 50 tons. The personnel of the navy, according to the latest information here, consists cf six vice and eleven rear admirals, 20S captains, 289 commanders, 228 lieuten ants, 187 ensigns, 30,000 sailors and 9,000 marines.

The next step seemed to depend on whether Russia would view the vessels as still German and refrain from activity against Turkey or would regard them as engaged in acts of war on behalf of the Ottoman government. , Earlier in the war It was generally assumed that the entrance of Turkey on the side of Germany and Austria would force Italy to assist the allies. The opposition of Greece to Turkey and the sending of Greek troops to Albania, where Italy feels a special interest, might alter the situation, in the view of diplomatists here, causing Italy, perhaps, to resent the approval which the Triple Entente is said to have given to Greek operations In Epirus.

EXCURSION SUNDAY Steamer Baldwin leaves City 2 :30 ; leaves island 4 :30 p. m. (Continued From First Page.) TWO DARKIES HANGED. Montgomery. Ala.. Oct. 30. Luther Sims and Henry Swanson. negroes, were hanged this morning at Dade ville, Ala for the murder of J. Fletcher Turner, who was at one time a member of the state legislature from Tallapoosa county and prominent in public life. Is suggested also that Servia soon may be compelled to retire within her own borders and assume a purely de fensive role in consequence of the na tional exhaustion resulting from the fighting of three campaigns in as many years. The battle arena stretching between La Basse and Nieuport has been vir tually screened off again, so far as independent news is concerned, and the official communications on the progress of the fighting In Flanders are so contradictory that little can be gleaned from them. The appointment of Baron Fisher, popularly callAd "Jacky" Fisher, to succeed Prince Louis of Battenberg as first sea lord of the admiralty has been hailed with enthusiasm by the public. SENSATIONAL ENTRY. Turkey's sensational entrance ir.to the arena of the European conflict is the most striking Incident of the past twelve hours. It seems a fateful -ioin-cidence that one of the famous Ger man cruisers, whose taking over b7 Turkey led to the first friction between the Porte and Great Britain, Franco and Russia, should have been the in strument of hostility which makes war between Turkey and Russian inevi table. Petrograd disclaims any Idea of ag gressive warfare against the Turks. Russia asserts her intention merely to protect Russian interests ar und the Black sea from attack. It Is in teresting to note that the Russian press expresses the belief that t e entry of Turkey Into the field is of more interest to England than to Rus sia on account of England's txada routes to India and other points in the Far East. ' " English newspapers tase an equally philosophic view of Turkey's action and express the belief that, while the military situation will not be gr-atly changed, Turkey in Europe is doomed to extinction. Unless Bulgaria Joins the enemies of Turkey, an invasion of European Turkey by land is impracti cable, according to British observers, and the warfare will be navaL Tux key's navy, assisted by the former German cruisers Goeben and Breslau as considered here to be far more for midable than her army, which Is said , to be Inefficiently equipped and poor'y fed. Greece will Jump at the chance of again measuring swords with her ancient enemy, it Is felt in London, and with the two battleships recently purchased from the United. States she will be in a position to meet the Turk ish ships on equal terms. In the Black sea, the Russian fleet has no single units as powerful ? either the Goeben or the Breslau, bu the number of her vessels, it is argued in London, will give her command of this inland sea. The state of Albania, considered, a masterpiece of the diplomacy of the great powers, has effectually disproved, the theories that she was a compact nation by resolving herself into sev eral separate governments, some of which are nothing more than Inde pendent municipalities. The dis puted European concert Is represented at Avlonia by Italy and by four wan dering commissioners with no govern ment to accept their advice. Greece has Invaded Northern Epirus and com placently announces that her action has met with the approval of the powers. In the north Essad Pasha, representing Turkey, evidently is preparing to oc cupy the unstable throne recently de serted by rince William of WIed. In the area of purely military ac tivities there seems to be a general lull. Special dispatches from West Flanders continue to describe the ter rible fighting which has marked the great battle there but official commu nications from both sides indicate that there has 'been little change In the relative situation of the opposing ar mies. One special dispatch dwells on an occasion early in the battle when the Belgian army exhausted and alf most without ammunition was on the point of retiring before overwhelming numbers, when much to their surprise two German divisions opposed to theai suddenly retired. The Belgians ad mit that had their intended retrat been carried out, tbe f,ay would have been cleared for a G'rman march on Dunkirk, as the allies had hot yet come up In suffiffldent force to cover the Belgian retreat. Petrograd is still cautious In the matter of statements concerning the extent of her successes In Russian Po land. She now declares that the Ger mans and Austrians may be expected to resume the offensive at any mo ment, and they have received raln-forcements. .A special ventre for jurors In ftw various murder cases scheduled for trial during the coming week was Is sued yesterday and last night deputy sheriffs were busy serving all who had been drawn for Jury duty. Four cases are on the docket for trial, the first being that of the negro charged with the McKinnon villa mur der. He win be arraigned Monday morning. 11 HAUOIE'E PARI!

MEGHUGHT Will CH 1 JOHN WILLIAMS CAUGHT AS HE WAS LEAVING YARD WITH A SACK FILLED WITH POULTRY. When Chief Sanders and Special Of ficer Hall received a call last nlgnt to hurry to the corner of Cervantes street and Eighteenth avenue t!ey made a quick trip in the city's automo bile, with the result that they arrived on the scene just in time to catch John Williams, colored, leaving the yard with a sack filled with fine chickens. The two officers left the automobile as they neared the house and were walking by tbe side of the yard fence when the negro leaped over almost Into their arms. With the chickens in his possession he did not deny the tneft but said he had taken a large number of other chickens from the place and sold them to a man working in a sa loon. The negro had been employed at the house by Miss Murphy, the occ i pant, who never suspected him of be ing the thief. The Hallowe'en party given at school No. 1 last night proved a big success and the large number in attendance spent a most pleasant evening. Tbe receipts were larger than anticipated and will be used for fitting up a kitchen and lunch room In the baae ment of the school building wrier lunches can be served at a nominsl cost, thus filling a long felt want. The school building had been pre pared by the teachers for the enter tainment, who installed lights in oil the rooms of th lower floor. Thte rooms and the hall were gaily exec rated with Hallowe'en colors and trail ing vines. Owls, black cats and witches in paper cut figures gave .x true Hallowe'en touch to the decora tions. An Oriental palmist, a witch telling fortunes and a mystery room wri some of the, features prepared for tho evening's entertainment. A fine musical program, including a piano solo by Miss Aline Bonacker I a quartette composed of Mr. Garfield, Dr. Mitchell, Mrs. Benn and Mr. Schoenhurst, as well aa readings by Miss Sadie Kugelman and Mrs. Oli White Barnes, was rendered. Other participating in the musical feature cf tbe evening did much toward makin. the evening a pleasant one. RETURNS RO IS M ORLEA JOHN G. WOOD AND W. H.

Rehearing on the application of Eastern Railways for a general freight rate increase was concluded today before the interstate commerce commission. It is expected the case will be considered by the commission next week for an early decision, Clifford Thoxne, speaking In the In terests of numerous shippers' Inter ests, summed up the opposition to the advance. He declared nothing in the way of developments beyond the European war had been brought out to lustifv the renewed aoneaL George F. Brownell, of counsel for j the railroads, devoted much or Ms argument to the power of the com mission to grant the relief sought on the general showing made at the re hearing. Mr. Brownell also read a cablegram from Ambassador Gerard at Berlin, which provoked considerable commenc by Commissioners Clements and Mey er. The message compared Russian and American freight rates showing the latter to be lower and said that the ambassador had been informed by the directors of the Deutsche bank that confidence of investors In Amer ican securities was shaken by rising wages and reduced freight rate a Commissioner Meyer lrsisted the figures could be of no use to the com mission, as no balss for comparison of rates was furnished.
