BRITAIN AGREES TO CONFERENCE PLAN Recedes from Original Stand and Expresses Willingness to Extend Scope of Meeting. CONFERENCE SEEMS SURE For the Moment War Talk Slumbers Oar if Dulgarla Makes a Triumphal I'.ntry Into llir Capital, frloce ' Ferdinand, as the "Czar of Bulgaria.," lias made his triumphal en try Ih to the capital amid scenes of patriotic enthusiasm. Crreat Britain has receded from lien original position and Is now willing that the proposed conference of the, powers to settle the crisis In the Near Bast shall take under advisement oth er questions In addition to those In volved In the annexation of Bosnia and Bulgarian independence. . It Is now pract -ally certain that the conference will b bold, h'l Us scope has not yet been determined. Austria still adheres strl.tly to tic principle of non-Intervention. A Turkish cruiser nod three torpedo boats have arrived at aUnikl on the way to the Island of Samos, a Creeinu possession. This Is Turkey's answer to the proclamation by the Cretans of union with Greece. For the moment there is little talk of war and even Sorvln seems to be taking a calmer view of the sit na tion. The Servian natlonall assembly has endorsed the government's policy, and the government at the instance of the powers, has been striving to maintain peace. SIR EDWARD GREY YIELDS Accepts Tswolsky's Scheme for V.i tending Scope of ('(inference, London, Cict. 12. M. Hwnlsky, th Russian foreign minister, has succeed ed In Impressing upon Fir Kdward Orey, the rtrltlsli secretary for foreign affairs, the necessity that not only hould a conference, of the powers be hld to settle the crisis In the Neat East, hut this conference should take Under advisement other questions be side those Involved In tins annexation by Austria of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the declaration of Bulgarian Inde pendence, This change of front on the part of Great Britain,, which has caused great surprise, was announced by thV for eign office at the conclusion of a long conference between Sir Kdward Grey and iM. Iswolsky, after a meeting of the cabinet In the morning, at which Sir Kdward set forth the position he, had taken and explained tha views of the Russian foreign minister. Sir Kd wurd's secretary In making the an nouncement said: "It may be affirmed with certainty that both ministers concur In the neces sity for a conference and that the pour rarws at the foreign office, following as ihVy do upon the Franco-Russian negotiations on the same subject, have smoothed away some of the difficulties which were In the way. It Is. now regarded as probable that the latest events In the Near F.ast also necesp'dtate the enlarging of the scope of th questions to be discussed at the conference." It Is doubted whether Russia Is anx ious to reopen the Dardanelles at pres ent., for If this Is donett must bo for all nations, and Russia. Is not likely to dejdre that while her fleet Is so weak. Besides, other treaties besides the trea 1v of Berlin would be Involved. TWO LARGE APPEALS Bijou Tlicator and Goodyear Proper ties Mated With Hellef Board.

The larger of the two Is the appeal from the assessment of tha Bijou theater property, which has been raised 119,000, from $141,000 to $100,003, The other Is an appeal on the former (oodyear properly, which was assessed1 for S!ifl,000, and which was sold a few months ago, at which time the new nwnrrs secured mortgages nt $130,000 on It- The property Is located at the corner of George street and Congress venue, and the assessment this year was raised to $130,100 on the strength of the mortgages which had been se cured on It. Against this raise the owners protest The number of appellants has not yet reached any large figure, although there are but three days left, for ap peals. None of the largo pieces of property In Chapel street have yet been put in. It Is said 'that number of ap peals have been filed simply because the owners felt that If others had re bates granted they should also benefit fnm the same action, end not because they felt particularly aggrieved.

Mr. Hrjaii said: ' "iloveinor Kuglo'M of N- York has been put forward as the champion of of the republican party to attack tho democratic remedy for trusts, and 'he president seems to prefer. the argu ment advanced by Mr. Hughes ruth t than the nrgunient advanced by Mr. Tuft. I can fairly assume, therefore, that the aiKunu'lit presented by Mr. Hughes, Is not only the strongest ar gument that lias been presented, but the strongest argument t tin t can be presented, because Mr. Hoosevelt would not pit htm against our plat form If he were not the strongest op ponent.

"As an evidence that Mr. Hughes is not In K.vmpnthy w it r Western re fers, you will recall that he vetoed a two cent passenger rate bill nnd he did this In spite of the fact that a republican legislature of New York, passed the bill.

II Is enough to know that he did not act upon this sub.lect as republican governors In the west acted, and I rare not what explanation his friends may make, If they say that he de cided hi favor of the railroads, without any reference to the contribution made by the railroads.

He called mm a. dreamer and a theorist ami with him contrasted Mr. Taft, Ihe re publican candidate. Mr. Taft, he said Is a practical man and a man of thor ough training In all'hriitielies of gov ernment, "The business men," said Major Tll son, "desire for the electhli of Mr. Taft, and nr watting until after the votes are counted before Increasing tho number of their employes or laying out more money in enlarging tho business. The reason for this Is that should 'Mr. Hryan bo elected, they can more easi ly haul In their salts ami wait until the storm has passed. If Mr. Taft Is elect ed they can go ahead w ith the enlarge ment of thn business and there will be a return to prosperity. "Worklngmen may ask why the fact that the manufacturers nnd business men want Mr. Taft affects them. It di rectly affects them. For ns soon ns a manufacturer sees that conditions are becoming bad It tnkes the form of shorter hours and lower wages for the worklngmen and affects that class even more than the employers."

ACT ON KERRIGAN Police Board May Take Up Offl. ccr's Case at Meeting To-night, RETIREMENTS TALKED OF Objii'llon of Lack of Pension lintl May Ho Met by an Eslra Assessment. There will be a regular meeting of the board of police commissioners tonight which Is likely to evolve some Import ant business. The appeal of Talrolman Kerrigan came up .yesterday in the court of common pleas and as he did not content the case hut accepted the tine Imposed tho caso Is settled so far as the courts) aro concerned. The po. I loo hoard has been delaying any ac toln It might take to await tho comple tion of the case In court. This result of yesterday's case leaves the matter ready for action by thn board. It Is oiilte probable that action will be taken at. the meeting tonight. There Is a persistent report of re tlreinents In the nlr that will not down and which sooner or later Is pretty cer lain to materialize. In fact theso re tirements are looked for any time nnd It la quite possible they may be mado tonight. One of the chief objections which has lain in the way of the retire ments Is that there is not enough money In the pension fund to take care of the pensions of tho men If thoy are retired. Humor has two captains down to be sent to the retired list and this means quite a considerable yearly pen slon amount. The fund Is already loaded down to Its capacity. However, there has arisen a talk that the retire ments may nevertheless be mado tho pension being provided for by an extra assessment on the members of the de pnrtnient. The fund at present Is re cruited from tho men hy tho assess ment of two per cent, of their pay each week and it is suggested that an ex trn, assessment would bring thn fund up eKnngli to allow the retirements contemplated. Whether or not such action will lie taken is a matter of con Jecture. It may nol be done yet again it may bo decided on and action taken even at tonight's meeting.
