less Turkey returns a favorable an- ?
?wer to Italy's ultimatum on Tripoli
in that time, according to ?semi-offi?
cial advices from Rome. If Tur
Ikcy does not reply to the ultimatum
Italy is prepared to land troops to?
morrow and fornv.uly occupy Tripoli.
Turks Playing for Time ?
CONSTANTINOPLE, Special.?The
Council o? Minister? of the Ottoman
in conclave today over
the ultimatum of Italy. It was offi?
cially reported that the Turkish gov?
ern ment has decided to reject in toto
Italy's claims for a protectorate over
Tripoli. Turkey is preparing for war
and an appropriation has been voted
for the purchase of $500,000 worth of
small arms in Europe.
While the Indications are that the
Turkish government will maintain a
firm attitude it 1b availing itself of
v means to gain time, while every
Kur ? pean power that might have
either direct or indirect interest In
;l, aside from Italy, is being
?ought to use its influence against
Italian domination over Tripolltan
territory.
Italv Ready to Land Soldiers.
MALTA, Special!?A fleet of Italian
men of war and troop snips is lying
twenty miles off the Tripolltan coast
today. The licet passed within sight
I tita on its crui.se across the Med?
iterranean Sea.
It is reported that the ships are
preparing to land sailors and ma?
rines, and that foreign residents of
Tripoli are in a panic, fearing that
such an action will provoke a general
most-acre of Europeans.
Two more Italian warship? and
four destroyers passed Malta today,
steaming in the direction of Tripoli.
From the shores it could be seen that
the decks were cleared for action, and
that the gun covers were off.
The tribesmen in Tripoli are. becom?
ing restive under the gathering cloud
of unrest. Many of them have prom?
ised the Turkish commanders to
fight against the Italians and on the
strength of this promise have been I
given modern weapons.
The foreign consulates In Tripoli
were thronged today with foreigners
seeking protection under the foreign
flags.
The hostility of the natives towards
all foreigners is becoming more open.
It is feared that, at the first outbreak,
the Turks may allow the fanatics to
sack the foreign quarter of the city.
Malta is fifty-six miles south of
Sicily, and 187 miles north of the Afri?
can coast.
Fleet Is DiTlded.
PARIS. Special.?The Italian fleets
are divided up today as follows:
First Division?Four battleships of
modern type, three armored cruisers,
one scout, three destroyers, one mine
ship.
Second Division?Three battleships,
old style; four cruisers, one scout.
Third Division?Three battleships,
old type; one armored cruiser.
Fourth Division?Two cruisers.
eipht destroyers and a flotilla of tor-,
pedo boats.
It Is apparent from the relative
naval strength of the two powers that
Italy could not be Invaded. Realiz?
ing their tremendous disadvantage
from Italy's superior naval forces,
Turkey h:vs resorted to the fulll
I strength of her diplomatic machin?
ery to stave off the war,
Italy lias Boats.
With her sea-fighting forces. Italy
could prevent the transportation of
Turkish troops to reinforce the Turk?
ish garrisons in Tripoli, and it has put
an emlmri-o on ail Tripolltan ports
which would prevent the landing of
munitions of war and provisions.
There are few harbors along the Tri?
polltan coast, aside from that of the
of Tripoli.
Hifaat Pasha, Turkish Ambassador

De Selves today relative to the 1.reach

TAFT MEETS WITH
COOL RECEPTION
TOPBKA, KAN., Special. ?Upon
President Taffs utterance today?the
last day of his run through Kansas
on his IS.000-mile trip to the coast?
hinged largely the effect of his cam
;n against insurgency. The Presi?
dent made no reference to his admin?
istration policies in his stay at Hutch
Inson, and it was not expected that
he would today depart from his
speeches on Monday, In which he
mildly defended his tariff vetoes and
discussed the trusts.
The President has not made the
vigorous flsht in this State that was
expected of him, even though he was
reminded by the standpatters that
strenuous effort was needed to save
Kansas from insurgency. Mr. Taft,
judging from the comments heard on
every side, has gained little ground
on his jaunt through Kansas.

NE^V YORK, Special. ?Although
early reports from the primaries un?

indicated that Governor Woodrow
Wilson's candidates had received a

strength at the primaries was con?
cerned.
Mercer county was carried by the
Wilson men, while the opponents of
the Governor won out in Sussex.
In Hudson county the results were
so complicated that no definite con?

Mayor Otto H. Wlttpenn won a
nomination in Jersey City. As Wltt?

In Jersey politics, his victory tends

RICHMOND. VA.?Special.
Pastor W. Fetler, superintendent of
the Russisn Evangelisation Society,
of St. Petersburg, was the speaker
at the rally meeting of the Baptist
Worlds Alliance at the First Baptist
Church last night. Rev. Robert S.
MacArthur. D. D.. of New York, who
was to have made an address, for
some unknown reason was absent,
snd Ro Dr. Fetler had the whole even?
ing to himself.
Dr. Fetler is out on $2,600 ball,
which was furnished In his own coun?
try by American Baptists. He is
charged with seducing from the fold
members of the Greek Catholic
< Lurch, and leaves for Moscow next
Wednesday to stand trial.
His plea for help from Christian
Americans for his own country last
night was eloquent and touching. The
graphic picture he painted of condi?
tions in his own country showed it to
be practically without religious free?
dom and wedded to the dead princi?
ples of materialism and pantheism.
In all the wide empire, with Its
lfiD.OOO.OOO people, he said, there is
not a single school or college for the
instruction of children of parents
having the Protestant faith and not
a single Baptist Church or chapel in
hole country.
"The Greek Catholic Church is the
church of the State, but it retains its
hold only on the ignorant masse?,"
he said. "The intelligent and think?
ing classes have broken away from It.
I don't think that I would be exag?
gerating if I said that 95 per cent,
of the professors and students in the
Russian universities are secretly, if
not avowedly atheists, materialists.
or, what Is still worse, disciples of
Count Leo Tolstoi.
"Those outside of Russia cannot
realize to what an extent the perni?
cious doctrines of Tolstoi have taken
hold of the students. 'The blood of
Jesus is a fable,' he is said to have
declared on one occasion. I went to
see him at his home shortly before his
death with an Idea, hoping against
hope, of influencing him. In my hum?
ble way. towar?l a better conception
of the Redeemer. I talked to him a
long time, and what do you think h.
said to me when I was through?
^tor Fetler.' he said, 'if a man
would come to me and tell me that
Jesus Christ had Just risen in my
garden I wouldn't take the trouble to
go and look at Him.' This is the
man whose? teachings have attained
such a following."
Want Protestant Faith.
People throughout the . country
were yearning for the Protestant re
Hglon. and there was pressing need
for a Baptist Church In St. Peters?
burg. Services, such as could be held,
had to be conducted In halls, and
these were rapidly being closed to
him by the Imposition of prohibitive
rents. But even these meetings
attended by immense crowds, and
there w?-rc already 400 converts to
the Baptit-t faith and over 1.500 reg?
ularly attended services since his mis?
sion to his people.
Re has colk ted 122.500. during
his five months' jour of America, for
the erection of his church, and $20,
000 more ia needed.
Speaking of the assassination of
Minister Btolypln, he said he was
sorry to hear of It and referred to
him es a strong man anil an effi?
cient servant to the Czar. At the con?
clusion a collectlein was taken and a
substantial sum realized.

Mrs. Cowdrey. who is a daughter of
Major and Mra Everett Warren, re?
ed a letter last Friday, in which
the w.-lter demanded $200. Failure
to comply with the demand would re?
sult in her infant daughter being kid?

After debating the matter the Cow

WANTS PARTY TO
STAND BY PLEDGES
ALBANY. N. Y., Special?Callln?
upon the Democratic party to reoeero
its campaign pledge of direct nomi?
nations and primary reform. Governor
Dix today sent his second message
to the Legislature demanding the en?
actment of those measures at once.
The message sent in today was more
thsn half composed of excerpts from
his message sent to the Legislature on
July 18th last.
"A failure to keep faith with
the people," says the Governor,
"most be regarded as a betrayal
of the voters of the State. An
honest statewide system of direct
nominations will render party or?
jranisation responsible to the
party membership and thereby
?make representative government
responsible In fact as well as in
theory and name.
"The party will was expressed
In the party platform. It was
confirmed and endorsed at ?the
polls. There remains now only
the solemn duty upon party rep
resentatives In the Legislature to
do what the party promised. The
people of the State have decreed
their don va ml that the Logtwlature
shall enact and the Governor
sign a law which will establish a
system +>t statewide direct nomi?
nations that will place in the
hands of the voters complete con?
trol of party committees awl
party nominations."
