The Bulgarian rep reaentatlve,..N)Kola Hobeff, a member of the court of justice at Monastir, is eighty years old and has been for many years an official of the Turkish government. With the exception of Ililml Pasha, the Inspector general, who is president of the commission, none of the others have any promi nence or Influence. The fact that the Bulgarian population of Macedonia Is given only one representative Is held here to show that the porte has not accepted the demands made by the So fia government. Negotiations between the porte and Sofia are reported to be still proceed ing, but the situation appears to re main unchanged. In view of the fact that the powers decided to answer the Bulgarian note it is doubtful ifc the meeting between the czar and Em peror Francis Joseph Kill cause any material change of policy.
