from their school in the oonvent and
several hundred of them poured into the

AFFAIBS AT PHILIPPOPOLIS,
Philippopolis, Deo. 3—The Turkish
delegates have arrived in this city. A
meeting of oitizens was held and the
bishop urged them to repudiate tho pro
posal to restore the status quo ante. A
Russian agent was present who said the
delegates had preceded the European
commission and that the Bultan'sspeoial
commissioners were ooming to reorgan
ize the status. He warned his hearers
that if the commission was not reoeived
the Turkish troops would enter the
eountry and that Bussia would refuse
Msistanoe to tbe Boumelians. The
meeting declined, however, to aooept the
commission or treat oa the matter re
storing the status quo ante. The Rus
sian agent then withdrew from the meet
ing, but the meeting afterwards sent to
the various foreign consuls a copy of the
resolutions whioh in substanoe were as
That the Turkish delegates be re
quested to postpone their mission and
depart for home. That the oitizens of
Philippopolis only acknowledge Sofia,
the capital of Bulgaria, as
the seat of government that
the army of eastern Boumelia and the
ednoated classes being absent at the
seat of war, the oitizens are unable to
treat on such an important subjeot and
having sent 60,000 men to war they can
not listen to a proposal for the restora
tion of the status quo ante.
London, Deo 8—Beturns reoeived up
to 3 o'clock this afternoon show the

forty-eight nationalists. Keturns from
the south show that Philip Gallan. who
was repudiated by Parnell, and ran as
an independent nationalist against Col.
Nolan, Parnoll's nominee, was defeated
by over 1,000 majority. This was a
greater victory than was expeoted by
the nationalists, as Gallan was very pop
ular in the distriot.

there is no foundation. The miners in

whether any men were working there.
Thoy returned with the information that
five men went to work yesterday at 1%

A SAW MILL.
Bay City, Mich,, Dtc. 3—At 11 o'clock
last night a fire broke out in the cupola
of the fire room of the McGraw saw mill,
owned by Birdsall & Barker. The wind
was blowing from the west and carried
the hre to the mam building of the mill
beoame a mass of seething
flames. The firemen saw that the mill
must be consumed and directed their
attention to keeping the fire from
spreading and by strenuous efforts con
fined the conflagration to the mill proper
and adjoining tramway. At 1 o'clock
the mill was in ruins. It waB looated in
the extreme south part of the city and
the largest on the Saginaw river. At
the time of its erection in 1873, it was
the largest concern of the kind in the
world. It had an annual oapacity of
40,000,000 feet of lumber, besides luth,
staves, heading and shingles. Birdsall
places his loss at $150,000 insurance,
$15,000 in various companies.. ^It em
ployed 150 men. It is not |known

New York, Dec. 3—Mayor Wm. B,
Graoe began his libel suit against
Joseph Pulitzer and the New York
World for $50,000 damages in the su

times during the last six months. Mr.
Pulitzer was arrested this afternoon and
taken to the sheriff's office where he
gave a bond of $5,000 and was released.
New York. Deo. 3—Stocks were very
tame this morning. The first priceB
showed a slight change from yesterday's
close, and the market continued very
dull during the„ hour. At eleven it was
dull but steady.
Washington, Nov. 28—There are so
many olaim agents at Washington that
some of them are hard pushed to make a
living, and reBort to all sorts of methods
of getting up claims, bogus or otherwise,
againBt the government. The latest
Bwindle has been introduced by a firm
of claim agents, who are Aending circu
lars all over the south, addressed to per
sons who were conscripted into the con
federate military service, in which it IB
asserted that an attempt will be made
to Beoure legislation from ocngress to
remunerate them for time spent in war
in the rebel armies. These parties
want the olaimant to make a
contract to give them a portion of any
money that may be seoured in this way.
They reqoire what is oalied an en
trance fee of five dollars in cash for each
one, to cover the necessary expenses
to seoure legislation. A very plausible
argument is contained in the circular to
the effect that congress is in honor
bound to compensate the consoripts of
the confederate army, as the supreme
oourt has held that the war was only an
uprising, and that every citizen was en
titled to protection from the conscript
ing offioers of the rebel army. It is said
that a good many ex-oon federates have
been foolish enough to be Oiiught by
this game, and tho firm is making a good
deal ot money.
