EUROPE'S SORE SPOT
Trouble in the Balkan Regions
and About the Passage of
TURKEY'S CONCESSION TO RUSSIA
Berlin Treaty May Have To Be Re
visedPorte Complains of Rus
sia's Ally, Bulgaria.
London, Oct. 13. The Turkish and
Balkan situation continues to develop
in a manner calculated to increase Eu
ropean apprehension. It is reported
that Turkey has consented to the free
passage of Russian warships through
the Dardanelles, while maintaining' a
prohibition against other powers. This,
if true, would be of the gravest im
port, and the expected denial was
promptly forthcoming from Turkish
sources. The denial, however, finds
less credence than the original report.
The latter was probably wrong in go
ing so far as to say that the Turkish
concession to Russia would be an
nounced in a circular to the powers.
The Troublesome llalkan States.
Such an announcement would be
tantamount to the abrogation of the
treaty of Berlin, and would create a
serious crisis, which Great Britain es
pecially would regard as of the gravest
concern. The whole naval situation In
the Mediterranean, aside from the dip
lomatic consequences, would be al
tered by such a concession' of the
porte. It Is known, moreover, that
Turkey has permitted two Russian
warships to pass the Dardanelles with
in a few days. It Is still Impossible
to obtain trustworthy information as
to what Is really happening in the
Balkans. There are two rival revo
lutionary factions at work in Mace
donia, and they flatly contradict each
Rnsiila's Ally Responsible.
The news of the urpising Is certain
ly serious, and the action of Turkey
after a council of war at the Yildiz
palace on Thursday was on such a
scale that.it was evident that a big
campaign was under way. The porte
complains that Russia s ally. Bulgaria.
Is chiefly responsible for fomenting the
trouble. It is learned that Russia and
France are ostentatiously urging the
porte to take the situation in ha rid
and suppress the Insurrection. The
diplomatists who represent other pow
ers do not conceal their suspicions that
the xaceful protestations of the dual
alliance are Insincere, and that Rus
sia's real desire is that the insurrection
ha II . : continue in order to mask and,
promote her ultimate designs.
Revision of the Berlin Convention.
A dispatch from Constantinople to
the Exchange Telegraph company says
a majority of the foreign ambassadors
and ministers held an unofficial meet
ing Saturday at which they expressed
it as their yiersonal opinion that in
consequence of recent events the pow
ers must seriously consider the ques
tion of the revision of the convention
in regard to the passage of the Dar
danelles by foreign warships.
Ask for a Precedent.
This probably refers to Russia's re
quest that four unarmed torpedo boats
should 1m? allowed to pass up the Dar
danelles. It has been declared in sev
eral quarters that this was simply a
mask for the establishment of. a pre
cedent which would constitute an enor
mous danger to Turkey's inviolability.

EXPERIMENTS ON DEAD HEARTS
Some Curious Things Hone by a Russian
Doctor Practical Value of
Vienna., Oct. 13. Medical men are
deeply interested in the discovery of
the Russian scientist. Dr. Kulebko.
who has succeeded in restoring
rhythmical beating of the heart iu
dead animals. After he had made the
experiment a hundred times on rab
bits, cats, dogs and other animals, he
tried the heart of a man who had died
of typhoid fever. The .doc-tor has con
structed an apparatus by means of
which he introduces a certain fluid
into the heart and registers its beat
ings. Iu quadruiKHls the heart began
to beat after as much as 120 hours
after death; in birds, after three days.
The apparatus proved too small for
the man's heart, so Dr. Kulebko tried
it upon the- hearts of children taken
from their t todies twodays after death.
He was atout to give up the effort
to revive the first child's heart, when
he was culled away because a visitor
wished to see him.' When he returned
twenty minutes later he discovered
that the-beart pulsated regularly. It
was "alive" for about an hour, then
ceased to Iteat. The doctor's repeated
experiments have shown that it takes
longer to revive the human heart than
the hearts of animals.
Even with his crude instruments, he
has succeeded in reviving hearts two
days after death. A hen the instru
ments are Improved the beatings cer
tainly will continue longer than r.n
bour. At present the discovery Is
practically valuable only in proving be
yond a doubt' that attempts to revive
drowned or suffocated individuals have
not been carried on long enough, and
should not be desisted from before
many hours have passed.
