Jan. -The son Little Rock atorial contest precipitated by the j death of Senator Jeff Davis is the all absorbing subject of discussion among the members of the Arkansas legisia 1 lure who assembled here today for the > , . I r ' BU ar biennial session. The Indica lio » s are that the legislative programs ; will he left practically untouched until [ the> se natorship Is disposed of. The situation that confronts the lawmak ers and the politicians is an Unusual one. For many years Arkansas has settled its contests ror the United Statis senatorship in the regular j I i 1 1 ; Democratic primaries. The fact that the time limitation renders a choice of a senator by the usual method now practically impossible adds interest to the situation, since it will mean, In the opinion of the politicians, a grandi ircc-for-all contest before the legisia ture. The selection must he made fore March 4, on which date the vice of J. N. Heiskell, appointed to till! the unexpired term of Senator Davis, v. ill end. Within another week or ten. days it is expected that the situation j will he cleared up considerably by the elimination of some of those now men- ! tinned for the senatorship and t lie vol- ! untary withdrawal of others from the j contest. At present nearly a dozen names are mentioned in connection with the honor. Those most frequently mentioned are Joe T. Hobinson, who* has just taken office as governor, j George W. Donaghoy, who has just re-1 lired from the governorship, several of the present representatives in congress, | and former Congressman Stephen | Brundige, whom Senator Davis feated in the primaries last fall.

The resolution of the representatives of Bulgaria, Greece, Montenegro and Ser i via on one side and Turkey on the other will be communi I rated to the Porte in a formal notice. At the same time it has been decided to instruct the commanders of tin* armed forces of the allies in the held to terminate the armistice which has been in effect since Dec. 3. Since that date light ing between Bulgaria, Servia ; and Turkey has entirely ceased. Greece, which did not sign the armistice lias continued fighting both on land and jsea. Montenegro, which was nominally a party to the i armistice has been engaged in many skirmishes. The 'Turks at Scutari arc believed to be well provided with food and ammunition. .Janina was the rallying point for the Turkish troops who escaped from Monastir I and other plaees in Macedonia and Albania. The Greeks have closed all approaches from the south but to the north and west communications are still open. Conflicting reports as to conditions in the great fort ress of Adrianople are current, but it appears evident that jibe troops and inhabitants are suffering greatly from dis ease and are short of rations. They have been besieged Mime October by Bulgarians and Servians. Before the Tchatalja lines is a great army of Bulgarians who were recently reinforced by Servians. Strongly entrenched fronting them, are large bodies of Turkish troops. The threatening note of the allies is worded in such a way that it will become effective only in the event of Tur key refusing compliance with the advice given to it by the ambassadors of the European powers.

Jan. 14.—The latest ftdvtres received by the Turkish delegates show that the Ottoman grand council has not met at Constantinople and that it probably will not meet. The Turkish envoys understand that Klamll Pasha, grand vizier, will in all probability re sign should the situation develop in such a way that the grand council will be called together Authorities on the situation in London express the opin ion that Turkey will reject the ad vice of the European powers and hoe tilities will lie resumed. Representa tives of the Balkan allies declare they are ready to face all events. They say their ; **' at no er than 400,000 troops are concentrated around the fortress of Adrianople and the lines of Tchatalja, while all the heavy siege batteries have been placed in position before Adrianople. General Boyovltch, Servian hero of Monastir, asserts that within two days Adrianople can now be captured. Al though the mobilization of the Rus sian and Italian armies is denied, there is no doubt that Austria-Hungary still maintains her armaments, with the object of enforcing their claims in the Balkans, especially In Albania.
