The l'owerti are Trying to l'revent a L'lanh (ireere Send Wanltlps and Troop to Help the Insurgent! In Crete The conflict between Greece and Turkey seems to be rapidly approach ing. The Christian insurgents in Is land of Crete are throwing off the yoke of the Mohammedan rule of the bar barous Turks and Greece is evidently determined to help them gain their freedom if possible. The Grecian tor pedo flotilla, commanded by Prince Oeorga; started for Crete amidst great enthusiasm on the part of the people. Prince George admitted that his orders were to prevent by every means pos sible the landing of any Turkish troops on the Island of Crete. The prince had a very affecting interview with his family before, leaving for Canea. It develops that it was the king who urged the government to dispatch the flotilla, and as soon as he had obtained the consent of Premier Delyannis, he personally issued the orders in order to give additional effect to the pro posals. When Prince George em barked, a salute of 300 shots was fired by the crowd ashore lib a parting salu tation and the people assembled at mid night at the palace and gave their majesties an ovation. The Rritish sailors cheered the Greek troops, just at they were starting for Crete. A fresh flotilla of four torpedo boats is held in readiness at Athens to sail for Crete and rein force irents of troops are being hurriedly dispatched to the frontier. The departure of the first flotilla has aroused the greatest en thusiasm in the provinces. Patriotic demonstations are taking place in all parts of (5 recce. A dispatch from Athens says that the central Cretan committee in Greece is preparing to support the Cretans with arms, ammunition and supplies on a great scale. The first installment has already sailed with 000 armed Cretans. The same dispatch says that the de parture of the Greek torpedo flotilla for the Island of Crete was due to the announcement that Turkish torpedo boats had left the Dardanelles and that Turkish troops had embarked at Salonika for Crete. Nobody seems to doubt a clash at arms will occur be tween Greece and Turkey, unless the powers intervene; but it is believed here that Greece will i3 given a free hand Crete and that if she succeeds iu annexing that island her right to do so will not be questioned by the rest of Europe. The porte is understood to have appealed to the powers to re strain Greece in this emergency, but nothing further is known of the policy Turkey is adopting, though it is re ported that a large force of Turkish troops is assembling at Salonica for embarkation for Crete; that there i- great activit3 in military circles on the Turkish frontier and that a portion of the Turkish fleet is being prepircd for active service. Advices from Constantinople say that there is a disposition in official circles to hold the powers responsible for any thing that may happen in Crete. The sultan has been prevailed upon by the ambassadors to refrain from sending reinforcements to Crete and he has the assurance that the powers have decided to not permit the landing of Greek troops o:i the Island. Rut the porte has informed the powers that if they are unsuccessful in preventing Greek intervention in Crete the Turkish gov ernment will be compelled to begin military operations on the Thessalia frontier; or in other words, Turkey will declare war against Greece and promptly invade that count'. The situation on the Island of Crete is serious, indeed. The insurgents have gained control of the whole is land with the exception of the larger towns and have formed a provisional government. It is said that the Greek warships have landed a quantity of arms, ammunition and provisions and at least one body of troops In spite of the warships present to prevent it. Conflicts are reported from many parts of the islaud. The captain of the Greek warshipoff Heraklion threatened to bombard the town if the Moham medans commit any outrages in that vicinitv. B REIFS.

Marshal Campos has expressed his willingness to resume command in Cuba if it is desired by the Spanish government He says he is in accord with the proposed reforms. The Chicago Journal is authority for the statement that $15,()00,(MK) worth of Cuban bonds have been disposed of in the United States. They are to be paid In gold 10 years after the evacua tion of the Island by the Spanish forces. The price paid was 50.

Many political reformers have main tained that the judiciary of the tate should be selected without going through the partisan strife of an elec tion, and Rep. Gustin, of Alpena, has introduced a bill in this line, to make the offices of the memWrs of the state supreme court and all circuit judges appointive by the governor, the terms of the office to le for 10 years.

Luce as a member of the board of control of the Ionia reforma tory. The Senate judiciary committee has taken the first serious jab at one of Gov. Pingree's pet bills and has killed the bill which provides that all rail roads in the state shall furnish free transportation to the railroad commis sioner's office. Commissioner Wes selius is said to be very wroth over the action of the committee and declares that the railroads shall be brought to strict account if the Senate fails to take favorable action for his office.
