Very few developments of any
particular Importance have arisen
in the Turkish-Italian war. The
Italian governor has entered upon
his official duties at Tripoli, and
one of his first measures was to
order the suppression of the slave
trade that has been carried on there.
Tripoli has been the last stand of
the slave traders. Although Eng
land and Germany have heretofore
attempted to bring pressure to bear
upon the traffic," It persisted under
the protecting influence of the
The Italians have, during the
week, succeeded in transporting a
large force across the Mediterranean
to the shores of Tripoli. The Italian
government has informed the powers
that attempts at. intervention will
be useless until Tripoli has been
The Turkish cabinet still remains
in a state of disorder, and the di
recting power that should be back
of the fighting force is paralyzed.
A number of the Turkish leaders
are beginning to talk of ceding
Tripoli to Italy for a consideration
that will be acceptable to the
Italians. A serious war between the
two nations seems to lie improbable.
The revolutionary movements in
the neighborhood of Hankow, China,

been brought about by the young
and progressive Chinese, who are
dissatisfied with their government.
The trial of James B. McNamara,
who, along with his brother John,
is charged with dynamiting the Los
Angeles Times building, began this
week. The trial is apparently des
tined to become world famous... be
fore it is concluded. Present indica
tions are that the trial of the two
men will continue over a period of
six months.
The destruction of the building
was the culmination of a long frght
led by the Los Angeles Times
against the unions and their policy
of the closed shop. The owners and
publishers of the paper had been
subject to several minor attacks by
unionists proceeding the great dis
aster, and suspicion led to the arrest
of the McNamaras on the charge of
murder through dynamiting. Labor
unions all over the United States
are backing the McNamaras. Many

President Taft passed through
the Northwest and into California
during the past week. At Spokane
he received what he termed as one
of the best receptions of the entire
trip. His speech there was general,
touching upon many important
topics. The tariff, the attitude of the
people to big business and interna
tional arbitration were among the
most Important.
'At Seattle the president confined
his speech largely to matters per
taining to Alaska. He argued that
Alaska should by all meant have a
local governing board. Governor
Walter E. Clark of Alaska came to
Seattle on a special trip in order to.
confer with the president in regard
to governmental matters In that
territory. At Bellingham Mr. Tart
offered his opinion that the first ship
would pass through the Panama
Canal 'on July i. 1913, instead of
January l. 1915. the final date for
Taft'B reception in Oregon was en-
thuslastic, and his frequent remarks
that the old battleship Oregon should
be the first ship through the Panama
canal brought forth much applause.
California people greeted the
president with a great demonstra
tion. He made an important speech
at Sacramento, where he advocated
treaties with Honduras and Nica
ragua in the promotion of peace.
At San Francisco he turned the first
ground for the Panama Canal In
ternational exposition. This was
one of his definite engagements In
the great tour of the country.
The annual International balloon
race for the Gordon Bennett cup
was won last week by Germany. The
race started from Kansas City, the
German balloon, Berlin ii., landing
in Wisconsin nearly 800 miles from
the starting point. America would
have gained permanent possession
of the cup had her representative
won this year.
By a decree of the United States
court at Toledo. Ohio, October 12,
the National Lamp company ( and all
subsidiary corporations were ordered
to be dissolved and the General Elec
tric company was forbidden to manu
facture or sell electric lamps except
in Its own name. The decree for
bids also the practice of fixing the
re-sale price on electric lamps by
contract with the dealers, jobbers
and consumers. These contracts re
quired that the dealer purchase

ply of carbon lamps, on which the
patents had expired, in order to get
the privilege of purchasing the new
tungsten and metalized filament,
lamps, the output of which was con
trolled by patents in the hands of
the combination.
Both the strikers and the railroads
hold firm in the big strike of the
shopmen of the Harrlman lines. At
present the railroads seem to have
the better of the conflict, as strike
breakers are plentiful. The shop
men are- trying to bring on sympa
thetic strikes by the operating labor
ers of the railroads. It is rumored
that the switchmen's union is con
sidering the advisability of a sym
pathetic strike.
J. J. Hill says that the reform of
our currency is a problem which
should be placed in the control of
the bankers of the nation rather than
in the hands of the government. He
believes that, since the bankers are
the persons most concerned, the re
sults of their endeavors along this
line would be much more successful
than any- results that could be at
tained otherwise,
Albert Leon, one of the most skill
ful counterfeiters that the govern
ment has had to deal with for some
time, was arrested in New York City
by secret service men, October 9.
It seems that Leon had invented a
process by which he might photo
graph bank notes and thus make
copies that defied even the scrutiny
of experts. His operations were con
fined largely to the Pacific coast,
counterfeiting the notes of Califor
nia and Oregon banks. He is sup
posed to have been responsible for
the many counterfeit $10 bank notes
that have circulated in the northwest
Hon. W. Bourke Cockran, former
millionaire congressman from New
York, recently returned home from
a long tour of Europe, where he made
a special study of labor conditions.
He says that something must be

ingmen, especially in Europe and
America. "The workingman is be

The new rules for 1911 have
caused no little confusion, not only
to the spectator, but also to the play
ers. The rules as they stand are not
perfectly clear in some places and
in some cases are contradictory.
The change that has caused the
most discussion is the change in the
penalty and requirements of the for
ward pass. Last year if the player
receiving the pass dropped it and
again recovered It the pass was con
sidered legal and the side retained
possession of the ball; if the oppo
nents tried to get the pass and fum
bled It the ball belonged to the side
first getting possession of it. This
year if the aide in possession makes
a forward pass the man who is
eligible to receive it must not let
it touch the ground; if the opponents
touch the ball they must not let. It
touch the ground. In either case,
if it does touch the ground the ball
goes back to the side that put it in
play and counts as another down,
provided that the preceding down
was not the third; in this case the
ball goes to the opponents where the
ball was put in play at the beginning
of the preceding down.
This year all kicks are to be
classed under one heading, namely,
punts, the change being that the
kicker must be at least five yards
back of the line of scrimmage and
those of bis own team who are off
side are not put on side until the
kicked ball has touched the ground
twenty yards in advance of the line
of scrimmage. This does away with
the bnslde kick so far as name is
concerned, as it is wholly governed
by the punt rule.
The new pass ruling will in a
measure change the history of foot
ball, as has already been shown by
