Rates Practically the Same as Those to Be in Force at the Suez Canal. Washington. President Taft has issued a proclamation fixing the rates that the foreign shipping of the world shall pay for passage through the Panama canal. The proclamation made under the authority of the canal act, passed by congress in August, es tablishes a merchant vessel, rate ol $1.20 per net ton of actual carrying capacity, with a reduction of 40 per cent, on ships in ballast, The provisions of the proclamation are as follows: 1. On merchant vessels carrying passengers or cargo, $1.20 per net vessel ton each 100 cubic feet ol actual earning capacity. "2. On . vessels in ballast without passengers or cargo, 40 per cent. lesE than the rate of tolls for vessels with passengers or cargo. "3. Upon naval vessels, other than transports, colliers, hospital ships and supply Bhips, fifty cents per displace ment ton. "4. Upon army and navy transports, colliers, hospital ships and supply ships, $1.20 per net ton, the vessels to be measured by the same rules as are employed in determining the net tonnage of merchant vessels. "The secretary of war will prepare and prescribe such rules for the meas urement of vessels and such regula tions as may be necessary and proper to carry this proclamation into full force and effect.'' American coastwise shipping was exempted from toll payment by con gress. It was to this provision of the act that Great Britain diplomatically protested. No reference to the Inci dent was made in the president's proc lamation. American naval vessels are exempt ed without specific mention, either In the act of congress or the proclama tion, because the authorities believed It unnecessary to explain the useless ness of payment from its navy depart ment pocket to the one belonging to the treasury department, ine rates named are practically the same as will be in force at the Suez canal next year.

TURKEY IS AGAIN ntrrriMp' I ia AbAIN btUGING, I Powers Once More Asked to 8top th ! War Cholera Is Raging in Turkish Army. I Belgrade, Servia.-The Turkish fortress of Monastir has surrendered to the Servian troops. Fifty thousand Turkish soldiers and three generals laid down their arms. Monastir virtually had been sur rounded by Servian troops for some ime, while Greek troops, coming from the south, had cut off the Turkish line of retreat to Ochrida. Monastir is the headquarters of the Sixth Turkish army corps, command ed by Fethi Pasha, but many other Turkish troops, fleeing from surround ing towns which had been captured by the Servians, concentrated theje. Wavid Pasha, the commander of tlie Seventh Turkish army corps, went there with many of his soldiers after the fall of Uskup to the Servians. Possession of the heights command ing Monastir by the Servian army rendered the fortress untenable. Fethi Pasha, former Turkish minis ter to Belgrade, was one of the first to hand over his sword. At the be ginning of the war he made the re mark: "We will soon invite our friends to dinner in Helgrade." London, Knglund. Any idea that the Turkish government may have had of benefiting by continued re sistance must be shattered by the news of the fall of Monastir. In the capture of that important town the Servians took three pashas, including the commander-in-chief, Zekki Pasha, 50,000 men and forty-seven guns, thus achieving the greatest individual sue cess of the war. Monastir was the second city importance in European Turkey. was Turkeys stronghold in Macedo nia, and by Its downfall Macedonia passes completely out of Turkish hands. With cholera and typhus ragint within her demoralized army, and powerful enemy hammering at her gates, Turkey again appeals to th allies for terms. PUBLICITY LAW ATTACKED Brief in Behalf of Newspapers Filed Before Supreme Court. Washington. The opening attack upon the constitutionality of the sec tions of the recent postal appropria tion act requiring newspapers to give postal authorities access to their cir culation record and to publish the names of their stockholders and bond holders, as well as to label political articles as advertisements, was made before the United States Supreme court in a printed brief filed by Rob ert C. Morris and G. H. i'lante on behalf of the Journal of Commerce and Commercial Bulletin of New York. The case Is set for argument orally on December 2. The attorneys for the newspapers contended principally that the sec tions violate the constitutional liberty of the 25,000 newspapers, magazines ind periodicals published throughout the United States. Unlike public service corporations the newspapers, the attorneys claim, posssess no elements which give the government a right to regulate their business, except in so far as the- pub ic morals or public welfare is con cerned.

Monday afternoon friends from far and near gathered at the Wylie home, to pay their linal tribute of love, and shower the casket where rested Ihe form of their little friend, with beautiful flowers. Softly her favorite hymns were sung, her pastor, Rev. A. P. Johntry conducting the tenderly solemn service. Eight young girls, her friends and schoolmates, carried Ihe wealth ol floral offerings, her boy friends acting as pall bearers, and just as the setting sun flamed into golden glow, the small casket was lowered to its final resting place in the beautiful home cemetery on the Berkelmann homestead. In the home, in the school, and in the Sunday School where she was one of the most faithful, Elsie, with her bright, sunny ways, her lovable personality, will be sadly missed.
