Chicago, Jan. 14.—Tin- first informa- |
tion regarding Jack Johnson's flight
from the city was given by the pub- j
lication in a local newspaper of a tele- |
superintendent of the department of!
justice at Chicago, on the telephone !
and explained that lie had no thought
of violating the federal laws or ut
gram from a passenger who recognized
the negro. Shortly after his arrest, :
Johnson called up Charles S. De Woody, j
tempting to forfeit the $30,000 bond,
Johnson was indicted for violating
the white slave act, and also
smuggling jewelry. The white slave
act offense is not extraditable.
I An application was made to Federal
Judge Carpenter for a bench warrant
for Johnson's arrest as a fugitive*. The
! court r eclined to issue the warrant
when Attorney Bachraeh, who appeared
thejfor Johnson, said he would produce his
! client in court tomorrow morning,
Attorney Kachrach said that John
j son would voluntarily return t<» Chi

! made t<- have him again admitted to
bail. Because of his leaving the Juris
diction of the court the federal authori
j ties will urge that Johnson be not ad
! initted to bail.

Many Arkansas Democrats
Are Ambitious to Secure

atorial contest precipitated by the
j death of Senator Jeff Davis is the all
absorbing subject of discussion among

I r ' BU ar biennial session. The Indica
lio » s are that the legislative programs

[ 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
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

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 |

Allies Prepare to Leave London and
Annies Will Be Notified to
Call Oil Armistice
I London, Jan. 14.- -The decision definitely to break up
! the peace conference in London simultaneously with the
presentation to the Turkish government of the note of the
European powers lias been reached by the chiefs of the
peace delegates of Balkan allies. 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.

London. 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
; **' 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.
Plenipotentiaries of the allies remark
that the attitude of Austria-Hungary
