CONSTANTINOPLE , May 12. The ambas-
cadors of tbo powers held a prolonged con
ference today , at the close of which they
presented to Iho Turkish government a col
lective memorandum proposing an armistice
between Turkey and Greece on Iho basis of
the negotiations for peace now In progress
through the powera. The memorandum ,
which was presented to Ahmed Towflk
Fosha , the Turkish minister of foreign af
fairs , by the dean of the diplomatic corps ,
Itaron do Calico , the Austro-Hungarlan am
bassador , enumerates the conditions which
have been accepted by Greece and begs the
porto to Issue the necessary orders to ar
rest the progress of the Turkish troops.
Uneasiness prevails hero on tlio sub
ject of peace negotiations. It Is feared
that the reported conditions will render an
agreement dllflcult and cause further com
plications. It Is expected Russia may pro
pose concessions to the Macedonians.
The director of the Deutsche bank of Berlin
5s expected hero shortly with proposals to
reorganize the Turkish finances , conclude a
loan and secure railway concessions.
SULTAN IIESENT3 MEDIATION.
LONDON , May 13. The correspondent of
the Dally Telegraph at Constantinople says
the sultan resents thn mediation of the
poworu and doslrcn to negotiate with Greece
directly. If this is refused the Turkish de
mands will bo more exacWng.
The Berlin correspondent of the Dally
News says the Turkish government demands
an indemnity of 3,000,000 and the right to
occupy Thcssaly until It Is paid.
A dispatch to the Chronicle from Constan
tinople says : An Irado has been Issued di
recting military powers to give preference
to natives wherever possible In making offi
cial appointments. In Thcssaly the condi
tions are not favorable.
A Turkish reconnaissance In force at Domo-
Iias has been repulsed and the attack on
Arta , which promised to be successful , has
also resulted In a check. It Is believed that
Edhem Pasha Is developing nn outflanking
movement with the right and left wings
with a view ot rendering the Greek position
at Domokoa untenable.
The Times correspondent at Athens says :
"Anxiety Is felt hero because of the absence
of General Smolcnskl's column. During the
day , In arranging the armistice , the govern
ment has addressed a strong protest to the
powers declining to bear the responsibility
should further bloodshed occur and lead to
ecrlouB complications. As M. Halll explains
to me , the government la In a serious pre
dicament. In order to secure mediation It
has compromised Itself In tbo eyes of Greeks
and Cretans without receiving a guaranty
that Turkey will cease hostility. Should
war bo resumed the position of the govern
ment would bo unenviable. "
UNEASY FEELING AT ATHENS.
ATHENS , May 12. The fact that there Is
no news of renewed lighting must bo re
garded as good news , but an uneasy feeling
exists here. Tlio Turks are trying to out
flank the Greek position at Douiokos and the
delay In the portc's reply Is also Interpreted
to mean that Turkey docs not Intend ( o
ccasu hostilities. Telegrams from the front
report that both armies are concentrating In
anticipation ot an engagement. The city
continues quiet , although it is believed that
the numerous Italian volunteers and social
ists now hero will endeavor to foment a
revolution leading up to a republic. But.tho
Greeks are devoted to the monarchical form
and the worst that Is likely to happen would
be the change of sovereign. If this should
happen the elevation of Constantine would
cpusci a disturbance.
It Is ofllclally announced that the powera
liavo notified the Greek government that
the Greek troops nuy leave the Island of
Crete , and the admirals of thu International
fleet will release the steamers which have
been seized during the blockade.
It U now olllclally denied that German
officers wore found oa board the Turkish
transport ship captured yesterday by a Greek
torpedo boat off the Turkish Island of
Tunedo * .
MAY NOT PACIFY CRETE.
LONDON. May 13. The Tlmca' corro-
npondcnt at Candla eays : "It Is feared that
autonomy will fall to pacify Crete owing
to the opposition of the 20,000 Cretan Mo
hammedans on the island who fear that
auloiomy will end in uniting with Greece ,
and they actually talk of resisting the dc-
partiuo of the Greek troops , "
The Horn' ) correspondent of the Daily Mall
eiys ; "I ascertained at the Italian foreign
ollleo that Turkey will certainly accede to
the request for an armistice , and will place
itu'lf In the hands of the powers , The gen
eral conditions of Indemnity and a strategic
rectification of the frontier upon which Tur
key Insists have been already acquiesced
In by the powers. It h probable that the
powers will land additional troopj in Crete. "
GOVERNMENT DISCONTENTED.
LONDON , May 13. The Athens corro-
cpondont of the Dilly Chronicle telegraphing
shortly before midnight last evening , cuys :
"The government la becoming scrloialy dis
contented with the situation , and the 1m-
prcuilon Is gaining that it would bo better
to prolong the struggle. Some of the poweru
arc suggesting a modification of the trail-
tier. But thU would never be accepted by
Greece. It processes the right to veto the
decision of the powers. In their original
note tha powera called upon It to abandon
Its Intercuts to them , but this form was re
jected and the word "Intrust" wai nulutl-
tutej for "abandon. "
The Athens correspondent ot the Dally
Telegraph gaya ; "By the czar's oxprciu
command Count MuravlefT , the Russian min
ister , has Instructed D , de Nelldoff , the Rus
sian ambassador at Constantinople , to Insist
peremptorily upon a ceaiatlon of hostilities
by Turkey , I also learn that Count Muravleff
lien decided to have an atscmbly 'In Crete In
order to ascertain the true Cretan opinion ,
If the Cretans reject autonomy the entire
question will bo reconsidered. This n't ' nle
Is full of hope for Crete and Greece , "

GOAT UAISIMT""IS IMIOKITAIII.B.
GcorKe W. Stone .MnkeH n Siieei-XNful
nxtierlmeiitNeur Camper.
CASPER , Wyo. , May 12. ( Special. ) The
newest , and what promises to bo a very
profitable live stock Industry In central Wyo
ming , is goat raising and husbandry. George
W. Stone , one ot the big wool growers ot
Natrona county , has recently made a pur
chase of 2$0 Angora goats , which he has
been running on the range with his sheep.
The goats were bought as an experiment ,
and after careful study and ot-aervatlon Mr.
Stone Is sanguine that he has struck a lead
that will bring at least a modeiato share
of fortune. Mr. Stone says Angora goats are
hardier , easier handled , and suiter leea less ,
and are withal more satisfactory than sheep
as range stock. The Increase is greater
than with sheep , but the herd requires more
attention , a mounted herder being necessary
to keep them together on the range. Tills
bunch of Angora goats was first brought
Into central Wyoming by State Senator Rob
ert Taylor , the big flockmastcr of thte
county , whose foreman sold them as a fancy
nuisance with a big sheep outfit. Mr. Stone
bought them and hU investment hag been
exceedingly profitable. His herd has In
creased 100 per cent and his clip has aver
aged three pounds per fleece worth 50 cents
a pound. In a few years Mr. Stone esti
mates that he will have several thousand
head of Angoras , which will bring him In
a much larger revenue than the same num
ber of sheep. A number of flockniastcrs In
this vicinity are taking great Interest In
the experiment and are inclined to venture
in the now Industry.

CASPER , Wyo. , May 12. ( Special Tele
gram. ) Some tlmo this spring the settlers
In that part of the country around the head
of JCIrby creek , about forty miles north and
west of Lost Cabin , established a dead line
and sent out notice that no sheep could be
run In the Ktrby creek country. The Wood
ruff brothers and Arizona Sheep company
have lambed thcro for the past eight years
and started In there this spring. Last Sat
urday sixteen men visited one ot their
lambing camps and took the heider out to
Chandler In custody and drove the ewe
herd acrcro the mountain , leaving the young
lamtft behind. This means a loss of over
$0,000 to the Woodruff Bros. company.
Hon. J. D. Woodruff left here this morning
for KIrby creek. H la hla Intention to take
the herd back to KIrby creek and see that
It stays there for the summer. Lively times
may bo looked for.

WASHINGTON , May 12. The president
has.sept Jo the senate a report bythe _ sec
retary of state containing the Stale 'depart
ment's translation of the letters of General
Gomez to President Cleveland In February
last nnd to President McKlnley In March , ap
pealing for the sympathy and support of this
country. The letters are the same which
were published six weeks or two months
ago , differing only on account of the fact
that the translations were evidently made by
different persons.
In the same communication the secretary
takes up the report that Cuban authorities
have refused to permit the United" States
consul at Sagua La Grande to communicate
with the minister by means of cipher dis
patch. He said that the council did re
ceive such prohibition from the major of
the town , but the ma\or was promptly rep
rimanded , upon a protect by General Leo
to the governor general. A copy of the
governor general's letter is transmitted. He
says the mayor misinterpreted his Insiruc-
tlons not to allow personal cipher dispatches
to be sent without seeing the cede used but
In order to avoid a repetition of such acts ho
hai ordered that the mayor DO severely rep
rimanded and that the governors and
mayors be hereafter Instructed not to
obstruct official tehgrarrs addressed to UnlteJ
States commercial agents or consuls In the
island and their supcrlora or Inferiors. The
secretary says this terminated the Incident
and that aluco tl.ls occurrence neither the
department nor the United States consuls In
Cubn have experienced any difficulty In the
matter of telegraphic correspondence.

WASHINGTON , May 12. Complaint has
boon filed at the Pension bureau against the
Soldiers' homo at noseburg , Ore. , alleging
that It Is violating section 4705 ot the revised
statute ? , making It a misdemeanor for any
one pledging or receiving as a pledge the
mortgage , sale , assignment or transfer of
any right , claim or Interest in any pension
certificate , or to hold It as security for any
debt or promise. Some Inmates of the homo
cullud attention to the matter and It wcs
taken up by several Grand Army posts , one
of w hlch , at Itoseburg , has made formal com
plaint.
The bureau has made an Investigation and
exonerated the management of the home.
There are legal authorities both ways and a
decision coiutrulng strictly the statute cited
would , It Is stated , bo not only unjust , but
lead to serious consequences. The evidence
ono that the homo directors have icqulictl
all pensioners to turrendcr their pensions to
the treasurer of the home. Four dollars a
month Is then allowed each person for per
sonal experses and 1he remainder Is paid to
dependent relative ? , or If there are none , the
money Is accumulated for the benefit of the
pensioner. This practice Is substantially
similar to that In operation at t\\enty-onu
other soldiers' homcu , 1'liu Pension bureau
takes the position that it la not expedient to
Intervene In. the case , as the act ot March
3 , 1S93 , by Implication , sanctions the require
ment which has been In force In most of the
state ooldlers' homes.

OTTUMWA , la. , May 12. ( Special Tele
gram. ) I'lnkcrton detectives have succeeded
In clearing up the mjstcry In connection
with the robbciy of the Bradley bank at
Rldon on the morning of February 1 , when
the safe was blown open and J6.200 taken.
The Instigator , Stevens , the city marshal of
ICIdon , has confessed , and ) i under arrrat
with Dick Dodd , a gambler of this city.
Stevens also Implicates three Chicago crooku.
The sheriff Is In Chicago with requisition
papers and expects to have the men under
airest this evening.
The confession of Stevens was made when
ho was confronted with some of the evi
dence by one of the I'lnKcrtons. He nt flrat
tried to tell a Htory of three men forcing
him to aid them In committing the rob
bery , but afterward went befoic the grand
Jury and told the story without restraint.
He and Dodd were then arrested. The city
marshal's story Is as follows : He first
conceived the Idea of robbing the Eldon
bank In 1S9C. He tried to get a crook from
DCS Molnes to aid him , but the crook de
clined after looking the ground over. Ste
vens then got Dodd Interested , Dodd agree
ing to get the cracksmen. Dodd went to
Chicago and made arrangements with thrcu
well known crooks to < lo the work ot blowIng -
Ing the safe. These men came to Ottumvva
and visited the scene twice before consum
mating their object. Once they decided that
the roads were In too bad a condition to
allow them to escape with . .tholr booty , and
the other time they were frightened away
by a man sleeping over the hank. They
icturned to Chicago and in a few days were
given another tip by the city marshal.
They came to Ottumwa , where they were
met by Dodd. The party went to Eldon and
was met there by Stevens. Stovcno guarded
the bank while the men robbed It , and then
aided them In stealing a team and buggy to
get away with their booly. The crooks re
turned to Ottumwa , were met on the out
skirts of town by Dodd , who took them to
his house and kept them In hiding for sev
eral days , when they went on to Chicago.
The money was divided at Dodd's houso.
Dodd received ? GOO. Stevens' share was to
have been left with Dodd , but the Chicago
men skipped with the rest of the cash.
Stevens came to Ottumwa and when ho
found out that ho had been deceived ho went
to Chicago and tried to find h's men , but
was unable to do so. He then came back to
Eldon. Stevens has always borne the very
best of reputation , has been an officer at
Dldon for years and the people of that plnca
will hardly believe his own story of the
crime.
