the White Front barber shop. The

as unconcernedly as though it were a
pair of machinist's overs lln just back
from the wash. For four hours police
officers watched the Scaiffe tonsor
lai parlors, making descriptive notes
of every person who entered and
came out. Rumor spread that mem
bers of the McNamara dynamiting
gang bad slipped Into town and were
planning a aeries of explosions. When
Epctein on the corner heard the
story be trembled and D. J. Penno
started for Europe for the benefit of
his health. Jake Paul, bartender of
the White Front, secluded himself in
the cellar and locked the door.
About five o'clock in the evening

ALLIES DELIVER
ULTIMATUM
TO TURKS
London, Dec. 18. —The peace plen
ipotentiaries of the llalkuu allies
onme together In Informal meetings
today to decide on their plan of ac
tion In the eventually of Turkey de
clining to ratae her boycott of the
t Hellenic delegate# unless Greece
’ signs the armlatlce.
The allies In the course of yester
day's meeting of the peace confer
ence at St. James Palace made It
clear that they would not en
*r 'gotiatlone without Greece
/# %ed to participate and Dr.
B. Da. the leader of the Bulgar
ian delegation is quoted as saying:
"If on Thursday the reply of the
Ottoman delegatee is not satisfactor
ily we will break of' negotiations
and meet again at the fchaulja lines
That will be the end of Turkey lu
Europe."
The concensus of opinion here,
however. Is that the present obstacle
will be surmounted by the delegates
and that the real danger point will
be over the future possession of the
fortress of Adrlanople. As far as
can be seen at present only media
tion by an outside (tower can solve
this problem.
Bervla took an Important step In
the declaration of peace today by in
timating her wllllugness to leave the
matter of An outlet on the Adriatic
nen entirely In the hands of the
great EnropsAn powers.
lu Announcing the decision of the
tier v lan government to take this step
the head of the Servian peace dele
gation added that Servin's attitude
waa a perfectly moderate one and
that relying on the Justice of her
claim and the sympathies of the Eu
ropean governments, she had decided
to take the coarse Indicated.
la regard to the tension between
Auetrln-llungary and Servim, It Is
generally expected that direct nego
tiations between those two nntlonn
will begin Immediately. These will
take the form of conferences be
tween the Austrian foreign Minister
and M. Jovanovltrh. the newly ap
pointed Servian minister st Vienna
and the object aimed at will he the
realisation of the mutual desire of
the two countries for the clearing
up of the situation and the removal
of misunderstandings
Constantinople. Dec. 18. —A great
victory by ihe Turkish troops over
the Greek army near Junlnu on Sun
day la reported today bv the Turkish

Greeks were killed and 120 wound
ed. Several field guns, numerous

SURVEYOR GENERAL
OF ALASKA NAMED
Washington. Dec. 18.—President
Taft today sent to the senate the ap
pointment of William Dlstln, of Illi
nois, as surveyor general of Alaska.
this aroused the suspicions of the
hardware salesman. Before leaving
the store Dillon remarked nonchal
antly that be was going to "do a cou
ple of Jobs". He talked about blow
ing safes and getting away with a
few thousand for Christmas spending
money. The hardware man became
concerned and notified the police.
Dillon needed a shave And a haircut
ao he entered the burber shop and af
ter he hod been wltchhazeled and
bayi-urnmed he handed the bundle to
Scaiffe and asked that it he kept for
him. Scaiffe thought It was an old
pair of shoes or something and made
a motion to toss it into a corner.
"8top! Be reasonable! ejaculated
the stranger, "that package contains
dynamite. If you drop It it will blow
your barber chalra up on Simpson's
Rest and there will be Fitch’s hair
tonic running Into every storm sew
er In town." Before Scaifc could re
monstrate the stranger was gone.
But the barber was game. Wrap
ping the package in hot towels he
laid It carefully away and put "Ne
mo," John Beck's bull dog, to guard
It. Ten cents admission was charged
for the "curious public" to come in
and gaze upon the bundle with eyes
of awe. When Nate John came In
and naked for a shave, someone sug
gested that the dynamite be used to
blow the hairs off his faee and thus
save time and the wear and tour on
the razor.
But Dr. Dillon explained every
thing at the JnII and returned last
night without the dynamite.

peared to amnzing degree,” said Mr.
Noel, “and it was carried on and it
grew because locally the arm of th©

done their duty this conspiracy could
not have spread. But it appears that
politicians for obvious reasons stood
between labor unions nnd criminals
and the local courts.
