When it was predicted a few days ago that the#period following tihe passing of the new year would likely see some new contenders in the Sen tinel-Keeord’g big voting contest, if not a >)ew leader in the vote stand ing, It was hardly anticipated that the change in the situation would I come so soon. But it has. There is a new leader in the contest today, l-iook at the vote standing in another colii mn. The passing of tihe old year and the splendid business prospects of the new year, has proven a source ot satisfaction to all the contestants. AH have found that subscriptions are asier to secuse now than during the period before January t. As a mat ter of fact the number of new sub scriptions turned in by the contest ants during the past two days has beeu almost double that of any like period during the contest. The con testants lhave also established their claims to support before the public and the people are responding in splendid style. During the past two or three days nearly every contest ant has received voluntary votes from fiicjids who either called or sent their subscriptions to the office, together with the name of their favorite candi date. From this time forward the contestants can expect a grpat deal of 'fhia voluntary aid. but it is advis able for them to prosecute their cam paign for votes as rapidly as possible. There are hundreds and thousands In the city who have not yet been sol icited and the contestant who calls on them first will likely secure their : support and subscription. From now until the close of the contest on January 15, the race prom ises to be a pretty one. There even promises to be one or two new and rather dangerous competitors within th? next few days, and with several striving for the prizes on about even footing the contest promises to de velope some real interesting features. The increase in the percentage of j cash to be paid in prizes has also stimulated the workers and they are putting in their best work to get a comfortable lead for the home stretch of the contest. Everybody is invited to call at the furniture store of A. G. Khodes & Son, 805 Central avenue, and inspect both the piano and writing desk, the grand prize, and the second prize (the winner of this also receiving her proportion of cash winnings.) The piano is one of the finest ever brought to the city, and the writing desk is also a handsome and desirable piece of furniture. Keep your eye on the vote stand ing every day now. If your favorite is running behind, lend her your aid and support to place her in the lead again. tuberculosis campaign. Nineteen Million Dollars Spent in Campaign Last Year.

London, Jan. 1.—After their pro tracted diplomatic skirmishing, the Turks finally capitulated to a major ity of the demands of the Balkan allies at today’s session of the peace con ference in St. James palace. ’ They agreed to cede practically the whole of the Ottoman empire’s European dominions, except AJrlanople and the territory between it and Constanti nople to their victorious but tradi tionally despised neighbors. The terms the Turkish delegates presented to the conference as a counter proposal to the demands of the allies were: f The rectification of tihe Turko-Bul garian frontier by making the boun dary w st of the line now occupied by the troops of the allies'in the Vilayet of Adrianople. The question of the status of Ad ianopie to be settled by Turkey and Bulgarlu direct. The cession of the r mainder of E17 opean Turkey, including Janina and Scutari, to the allies. The Albanian and Cretian ques tions to be solved by the powers. Tlie Aegean Islands to remain Turk ish. Th? announcement of these terms was wrung from the Ottoman dele gates with the greatest difficulty. They came only after Rechad Pasha 'ad reiterated Turkey’s desire to shift responsibility for adjudicating all th? vital questions to the great i owers and the representatives of the allies had registered their un changeable objections to such a course and plainly had given the Turks to understand thai the fail ure of the Ottoman delegates to em-, tark upon serious negotiations would mean a resumption of hostilities. To day's sitting was the most momen tous and exciting since the beginning of the conference. The Greek pre mier. M. Venizelos, presided ami in vited Rechad Pasha, to present the Turkish counter proposals, as the Turks last Monday had agreed to do. Rechad said his interpretation of th? badly transmitted telegrams of the early week had been correct, his government proposing to submit all questions at issue except Adrianople to settlement by the powers. This caused an outburst of indignation which M. Venizelos was hardly able to put down. Several of the dele gates shouted that it was not digni fied to turn such matters into a joke, while others observed that they had not come all the way to London and remained here for three weeks to hear a proposition advanced which might have been made at the time the armistice was signed. When relative calm was restored, M. Venizelos, Dr. S. Daneff leader of the Bulgarian: M. Novakovltch, Ser vian, and M. Miyuskovitch. Montene grin. each for their respective coun tries, declared they would not accept the proposed mediation by the powers and insisted that the Turkish dele gates present a practical and defined proposal. nernaa men announced ujui ms in structions contaiqed another alter native, and requested time to formu late it. After a short recess. Re chad staled that Turkey, desiring to give tangible proof of her love for peace, in deference to advice received from •Jhe powers, was ready to make the maximum of possible concessions to the a:lies by granting a rectification of the frontiers, ceding the territories westward of the line occupied by the allies in the vilayet of Adrianople to them. M. Daneft said it would be impos sible for Bulgaria to renounce her claim to the possession of Adrianople and he could not accept such an inde finite offer. M. Venizelos said the proposal of Turkey must declare ex plicitly that the question of Adria nople must he settled independently atsr. He added that the proposed compromise ohould even Include ter ritory not yet occupied by the allies, citing as an instance .lania. M. Mtyupkoviteh made a similar claim on behalf of Montenegro concerning Ccutnri. Kechad then said the translation of his communication tad not yet been finished but that the first part of it naturally meant the cession of Janlna and Scutari. He added that the question of Albania and Crete should be solved by the powers wiho already had tak = n up the matter. Several delegates then asserted that this meant Turkey’s renunda M. PASHITCH M. Pashitch, premier of Servia, is one of the most prominent figures in Europe just now, owing to the dis pute between his country and Aus tria. tion of both Albania and Crete, hut Kec.ad replied that his instructions did not ext n,i to that. M. Novako vitch observed that the Turkish state ment did not lend itseif to any otiher interpretation, the allies taking it in that sense. Kechad, continuing his enumeration of th Turkish proposals, added that the Aegean islands should remain with Turkey. Finally Kechad ended the reading of his communication by proposing that Turkey and Bulgaria treat direct concerning Adrianople. M. Daneff immediately declared it would be im possible to accept this proposal. Bay : ing “The Balkan states were united 1 en bloc to obtain their independence, en bloc they conducted the war, and en bloc they intend to carry on the negotiations and conclude peace on all large or small questions that may arise.” Kechad then inquired whether the allies were ready to discuss peace on the basis of the Turkish proposals 01 today.# M. VenizeloB replied that he desired Redhad to put in writing ami deliver to the allies the text of his propositions so they might return a written answer. Thereupon the sit ting was suspended. Upon reassembling Kechad com plied with their request and the al lies presented their answer in writ ing. Tins, said the allies would main tain their original terms but for the sake of discussion they would Invite Rechad to present to the next sitting of the conference, a map of the^flis trict of Adrianople with the frontier iin? proposed by Turkey marked out on It. The conference then adjourn ed until Friday. Thus the hone of contention is Ardianople. The Bulgarians are ready to allow the Turks to retain in Adrianople, the famous mosque of the Sultan Selim, t'he greatest master piece cf Ottoman architecture. They also are willing that the Turks shall keep the Murdaieh which was lmilt by Muraid 1; the mosque of Muriad IV, and the Bayard Mosque which are the main centers in Adrianople for Mohammedan worship. After tite conference had adjourn ed today the allies hold an informal meeting to discuss the situation. WILL USE FORCE TO GET ROCKAFELLER DRASTIC ACTION MAY BE TAKEN TO SERVE SUBPOENA OF PUJO COMMITTEE. New York, Jan. 1.—The Pujo "money trust” committee will be asked tomorrow to consider the ad visability of issuing an attachment empowering deputy sergeant-at-arms of tlie house of representatives and private detectives in their employ, to force tiieir way into the Fifth ave nue mansion of Wm.

OF SULZER ALL THE POMP AND DISPLAY USUALLY INCIDENT TO SUCH OCCASION WERE LACKING. WALKED TO THE CAPITOL — There Was Nothing to Feature the Induction Into Office of New York’s Chief Executive Ex cept Notable Gathering. i Albany, N. Y., Jan. 1.—Precedent, of years standing were ignored and others created today during the in auguration of Wm. Sulzer, as demo cratic governor of the empire state All the pomp and display usually incident to sudli occasions were lack ing; this at the governor’s own re quest. There was no military demon stration; no governor’s salute of nineteen guns; no parade; nothing to feature the induction into office of ih? state's chief executive except a notable gathering of prominent peo ple and the carrying out of the pro cedure provided by the constitution. The new governor insisted upon walking from the executive mansion to the capitoi, refusing to ride in a carriage whicih had been provided. After the ceremonies, he inaugurat ed a neV feature by appearing on the front steps of the capitoi and address ing the thousands who were unable to witness the ceremonies inside. Gov. Sulzer took the constitutional oath of office in the laviPhly decorat ed assembly chamber. In his inaugural audress the new executive pledged “an honest and efficient and economic and business like administration.” and was greet ed with prolonged applause when he said; “The people know that an ounce of performance is worth a ton of prom ise and they will judge my adminis tration not by what I say now, but what. I do (hereafter,” Carrying out the democratic plat form pledges, Majority Leader Wag ner of the senate and Assemblyman Goldberg, tonight introduced a joii% resolution in favor of woman’s suff rage. The popular election of United States senators was the principal recommendation made by Gov. Sul zer in his first annual message to i lie legislature which convened to night. “Tiie people can and ought to he trusted,” said the governor. “In my opinion the people of our state are in favor of tilie election of United States senators by a direct vote. 1 favor this change In the federal con stitution as I shall every other change that will restore the government to the control of the people.” The governor also asked the legis lature to consider reducing the 'high I cost of living and recommended sub | mission of an amendment for woman suffrage to Wie people “as soon as possible.” Members of the progressive party attempted to amend the r|les In both houses so as to do away wdth exe cutive sessions of committees, but without success. TOMMY MURPHY WINS . FROM FRANKIE BURNS HARLEM LAD WAS CALIFORN IAN’S MASTER AT EVERY, STAGE OF THE CONTEST. San Francisco, Jan. 1.—Franhie Burns seconds threw a towel into the ring in the 17th round of ohe fight with “Harlem Tommy” Murphy to day. Burns had been beaten almost insensible and bis face had lost Its contour. Murphy, barring the second round, when he ran afoul of a right cross that sent hitn to the mat for a couple of seconds, was at all times Burn’s maBtcr. burns opened the third w’ith two vicious right punches to the jaw, af ter which the round resolved itself into a slugging match. Murphy stag gered tne Californian In the fourth and forced Burns into a corner. The Harlemite nearly floored Burns in the fifth, but Burns forced Murphy to a clincih. Both man landed often In the sixth, playing constantly for lhe face and jaw. Burns opened a gash over Murphy's mouth. Murphy won the seventh, planting his uner ring left solidly to the Jaw a half dozen times. The eighth round was the most vi cious of tlhe tight. After Murphy had peppered the OaUlander with lefts to the face. Burns lauded three pow erful blows to the jaw. A rally fol lowed, during which Burns was all but sent through urn ropes. Murphy \ ' had all the better of the ninth and Burns was bloody as he took this seat. Murphy almost floored Burns in the tenth, but Burns fought with gameness in the eleventh, while Mur p.iy used him as a chopping block. Burns staggered Murphy in the twelfth, a left to the face, followed quickly with a powerful right, slow ing up the Harlemite. Both men were covered witih blood when the round ended. The thirteenth round saw no blows of consequence and Burns slowed up perceptibly in the next two rounds. He seemed to have lost his punching power. Murphy in the sixteenth almost knocked out Burns w da right, and left punches to the jaw and Burns was carried to his corner. When the hell rang for the start of the 17th, Burns tottered from his seat, Mur ■ phy after him, landing right and left on an undefended face. The crowd Importuned Referee^ Griffin to stop the fight and a towel was tthrown from the Burns corner? MINERS RESCUED.

Va., Jan. 1.—Seven men were killed and the lives of sev eral others ure believed to have been lost today when a west bound C3iea peake & Ohio railroad freight train crashed through a weakened bridge across Guyandott? river, at Uuyatt dolte, a suburb near this city. The known dead are: E. E. Weber, engineer, Russell, Ky. Henry White, bridge watchman, Huntington, Charles Maddie, bridge worker, Tal cott, W. Va. Jam s ('. Crawford, bridge worker, St. Albans, W. Va. Emmett Good, bridge worker, Tal cott, W. Va. Charles Coyner, bridge worker, Teays, W. Va. L. S. Wheeler. Huntington. Upwards of a dozen men were in jured. A crew of thirty or more iron workers were employed installing a double track across the bridge wilien the freight train approached. A few left their posts, it is said, believing the bridge unsafe. When the train was near the cen ter of the structure the bridge crumbled. The heavy train crashed into the water and tihe bridge debris covered ttie train wreckage. Members of the train crew and iron workers not caught beneath the wreckage, struggled through tile wa ter to shore. The engine, one of the largest types, probably will have to be re moved from the water before pro gress can be made in recovering bodies. The accident is believed to lhave been caused by water undermining the piling that had been put in at low water stage. A heavy rise in the river had caused considerable loss during the past several days but the railroad officials felt confident that the bridge was safe. A passen ger train had passed over the bridge a few moments before it gave way under the weight of the freight train. A rigid investigation is underway both by the civil authorities and offi cials of the failroad. FIRE AT KONAWA. OKLA. • • 11 '■ ■ konawa, Okla..

WAS A ONE SIDED FIGHT Gigantic Plazer Was at the Mercy of His Lighter Opponent All Trough —McCarty Quits Ring With Barely a Mark. _ I •.■./ Los Angeles, Jan. l.--ljitjber .Mc Carty of Springfield, Mo., shattered Mhe heavyweight championship ambi tions of A1 Falser, the Iowa giant, at the Vernon arena today. For nearly eighteen rounds he used the huge frame of the Iowan as a punch ing hag. The middle of the eighteenth round found Falser staggering blindly about under a volly of lefts to his batter <1 lace and when Referee Charles Ky tou hoisted the right baud of tha smiling cowboy pugilist, the decision was received with cheers. McCarty’s victory after his decis ive defeat, three weeks ago of Jim Flynn, places him at the top of the list of white heavyweights. McCarty has announced and reiter ated the statement today thut lie never would light a negro. Fal/.er, in spite of his superior height., weight and. ream, was no match for the cool-headed agile youngstt r. Ho literally stumbled through the tight, assimilating awful punishment. Hig rushes wero whol ly ineffective. He landed very few clean blows throughout the tight.. Palzer began the light with an as* , greusiyenaas that, indicated a desire to finish ids man In short order, hut McCarty had little difficulty in elud ing him. Only once Palzer appeared to have an advantage, ui one of the early rounds McCarty slipped to the mat and Falser rushed in, launching a right upper-cut to catch the rising man but McCarty ducked out of tUa | ger. McC’arty fought cleverly through out, taking ids time and beating down Ills man systematically. He seldom wasted a blow and hit with deadly precision. Palzer had practically no defense against the Missouri in’s whiplike left, delivered straight front the shoulder and seldom was he able to block Mhe right swing or upper-, cut which invariably followed a ser-‘ leg of straight lefts. McCarty landed with an accuracy that became monotonous. Palzer's eyes were kept almost continually on his manager, the veteran Tom O'Rourke who shouted instructions to him through a megaphone. He ap peared to have no initiative whatever. O'Rourke's instructions were as audi ble to McCarty as to Fal/.er and every J move of t'he Iowan was anticipated by his foe. • Paizer's face was badly disfigured and he showed the effects of his beat ing even more than did McCarty's j last victim, the veteran Flynn., In the eighteenth round Falser walked unsteadily to the centre of the ring and literally fell into a left hook that dazed him. He Flung to McCarty’s Fhonlders and when they separated McCarty shot two lefts to the jaw. McCarty, apparently unwill- , V j ing to administer the finishing punch, I urked away and the "Referee stopped the fight. McCarty’s only mart; was a slight cut under the right eye.
