Constantinople, Oct. 13.?Whether
for the purpose of furnishing provo?
cation for war or to show the Balkan
allies that Turkey can not be intimi?
dated the government is acting with
an aggressiveness calculated to bring
on hostilities. The embargo on Greek
ships, the detention of Servian am?
munition and the seizure of Bulgarian
railway ears all constitute belligerent
acts. Greeks and Bulgarians in Con?
stantinople, numbering 1,000 or more,
have been subjected to treatment de?
signed to irritate these two nations.
Financial considerations figure largely
in the attitude of the Turkish gov?
ernment and practically all of the
many hundreds of Greeks who are
returning to Athens are compelled to
pay full taxes to the end of the year
before they are permitted to disem?
bark. Even the crews of Greek ships
which were seized have been haled be?
fore the prefects and made to pay a
year's taxes, as though they were
Turkish subjects. Many Creeks have
been arrested on the charge ?>f being
deserting reservists and they can pro?
cure their release only by paying the
military exemption tax.

COTTON MARKET PLAYS SAFE.
WAITS FOR FIRST KILLING
FROST IN SOUTH.
The War in tiie Balkans Will Act
j a.M Balancing Feature Against Pos
1 si bio Frost.
New Orleans, Oct. 13.?The cotton!
market promises to be more or less
a waiting affair until the first killing I
frost of the season is reported over '
the cotton belt.
j This week the trade will hang anx- '
iously on weather news and the first
rign of colder weather will bring in
the buying orders.
j As a balancing feature against pos- j
?tble frost will be the war in the Bal?
kans. Complications there are feared
by all the markets of the world and
probably the uncertainty over the sit?
uation would have more telling effect
on cotton but for the approach of the
killing frost date. Further declaration
< t war will, of course, have bearish
(ffect on prices, but bears will be able
to push the advantages because of
the possibility of a cold snap in the
belt at that time.
The ginning of the crop will com?
mand increased attention this week
because the next report on ginning
by the census bureau is getting near
at hand. Thursday will end tho pres?
ent period in the census reports, cor?
respondents carrying their returns
down to the close of business on that
date. At tho end of the week prelim?
inary estimates of the amount of cot
tor ginned will probably be coming
from private crop reporting bureaus
and the figures may have some influ?
ence on the market.
The spot situation will probably
grow In importance this week aa spot
people generally claim that mills are
more willing to buy and the export
business is broadening out. The best
of reports are coming from mills in
this country and In England regard?
ing the amount of business being
booked ahead and they have served to
give the claims of a better spot In?
quiry, a good foundation. With re?
ports of a continued demand for ac?
tual cotton this week, the bears will
find It difficult to keep prices down
unless Import developments favor
them. On the other hand It is hardly
to be expected that the bulls will be
able to bring about anything resemb?
ling a permanent advance with the
political situntion in Europe as It is.

The Governor spoke at Canton, the
home of McKinley; Orrville and Cleve?

on the trust plank of the Progressive
party, he paid tribute to the memory
of President McKinley, declaring that
just before he died, he showed "symp?
toms of adjustment to the new age,
such as his successors have not exhib?
ited," and foresaw the necessity of
elasticity In the tariff and "reciprocal
trade relations with the world."
"The regular Republicans say they
are opposed to monopoly," said the
Governor, at Canton, "but when they
come to speak of the methods of re?
straining it, they chiefly indulge in a
narrative of what they have already
done, which we know to have been in?
effectual; and when the third party
takes up this side of the difficulty

leave things as they are and subject
them to supervision of an Industrial

closed his whole thought in investiga?
tions before Congress and on one oc?
casion, for example, In testifying be?

said there ought to be an Industrial
commission. He wants a commission
which will permit, under regulations,
