exhaust the Turks much sooner, while the
unhampered banda can move more easily
and more rapidly. It Is hoped that the new
tactlca will result In the women and t-hil-dren
being spared unnecessary dangers.

and thousands of peasants are ready to

aggregating 1.600 men, are reported to be
on their way to the frontier. The Turkish
forces now lu eastern Macedonia are esti
mated at 17.00.

enthusiasm. '

route will be laid out within the next few
weeks. Surveyors are forking from both
ends toward the-mlddle., of the proposed

cult engineering problems In t'tah. but the
engineers are giving much thought to the
opening of a passage through Palisade
Canyon and the construction of a trestle
across the southern arm t,f Great Salt
Lake.
For a considerable distance In Nevada
the new road will parallel the contem
plated cut-off of ihe Southern Pacific. !t

copied.
Chief Salter recommended the location of
u flro alarm box at the corner of Fourth
street ami Lincoln avenue, when the city's
finances will permit. The recommendation
was placed on file, as it was thought In
advisable to locate the box at the present
time.
A communication and contract forms for
the continuation of the tire department
telephone service was submitted by the
Nebraska Telephone , company. The com
pany asked that the contract be signed. It
Is made to cover a period of five years at
a rate of $41.25 per month. Thirteen fire
house telephones and an Instrument In the
office and residence of the chief are pro
vided for In the contract. There Is a clause
In the contract which Is now In force that
provides the city may take over the tele
phone system at any time at a price to be
fixed by an Inventory of the plant, to be
reckoned at three-quarters of the amount
the Inventory shows. On account of this
clause the contract was paused over until
the next meeting of the board to allow the
members to determine whether It will be
good policy for the city to acquire the
property. If It Is found that the city can
operate the telephone service at less cost
than under the present system steps will
be taken to take over the plant. At pres
ent the system Is a full metallic circuit and

and It was for that reason that the case
was continued. ,
President Broatch reprimanded Fireman
Patrick Roche . severely for failure to re
spond to an alarm and fined him his time
off for one month. Mr. Broatch said that
this offense was becoming entirely too com
mon In -the fire department,' and that It

ures would be adopted by the board.

LONDON, t-'.jt. i I. From U parts of,

ministers cnn.i lu London today to attend
the meeting which was regarded as hank
ing the nu.st Important phaie in 1 )" r -cent
polltlcut history of the I nittu King
dom. The Times voltej public aentlmunl lu
saying It was a "great occasion." mtrn
Important than the historic meeting when
home rule was uppermost, for the main
Issue today Is the "unity of the empire
Not since the fatal day when the cabinet
framed an answer to President Krugcr's
ultimatum had such crowds gathered
around .Downing street.
From early morning loiterers assembled
here In the hope of catching a glimpse ot
the pdjllcal leaders. However, when. It was
announced that the cabinet would not meet
until 3 o'clock the spectators dwindled
a wa y.
Mr. Balfour, who arrived In London from
Scotland yesterday evening, went to Down
ing street early. There a number ot
treasury officials were closeted all tho
morning with Mr. Balfour'a secretaries,
going over the statistics on which the
cabinet Is supposed to base Its decision
for or against free trade. Mr. Chamber
lain, who wan the central figure In today'a
proceedings, left Birmingham, accompanied
by his wife.
A large crowd bid them farewell at tha
railroad station. On their arrival here
Mrs. Chamberlain went to their London
home, and Mr. Chamberlain proceeded to
the colonial office.
Chamberlain la Hooted.
Upon tho arrival of Mr. Chamberlain at
Downing street he was loudly hooted. A '
crowd ot laborers employed nearby joined
In this unusual demonstration against the
colonial secretay. .Mr. Chamberlain, who
was accompanied by General Balfour, presi
dent of the Board of Trade, showed his
customary Indifference to this reception.
The police eventually were . obliged to
form double lines from Mr. Balfour'a psity
to tho foreign office so to enable the
cabinet ministers to enter the latter place.
Another meeting of the cabinet . will be
hell tomorrow. It may, therefore, safety
he assumed that, no , definite decision
regarding the fiscal question was reach
today.
The cabinet meeting ended at 6:50 p. rn.
It transpired that the predicted decision tn
the cabinet over Mr. Chamberlain's fiscal
proposals actually occurred and that a
partial reorganization of the ministry is
probable. Mr. Ritchie expressed his un
alterable opposition tn any change In the
fiscal system and nothing In believed to
have occurred to modify the opinion hsld
this morning that he will resign the chan
cellorship of the exchequer.
In spite of the South African War com
mission's severe criticism of Lord Lans
downo's course as secretary of war, It IS
declared that he proposed to remain at the
head of the Foreign office.
LONDON, Sept. 14. As head of the For
eign officu, It was remarked by one who
knows his views, that he has made quite
a different record In his present place than
when aa secretary of state for wars he had
to contend with the opposition ot Lotd
Woolsley.
Besides the fiscal -I o t on and the effoi t
on the country of the publication of the
War commission's report soma attention
was given to the Balkan situation, but con
fidence prevails that Gieat Britain will net
depart from Ita policy in not advocating
the concert of the lyjw.ers. It Is said the
meeting tomorrow was called" for the pur
pose of further contrlderlng matter .i of an
other nature.
it Is stated positively that the fiscal de
bate was carried through without fresh
developments.
(iuesaer Are at Sea.
The ministers kept secret the diacuseli.t.h
of yesterday's cabinet council so effectually
that the speculation as to the results is
almost nugatory and the government press
organs this morning offer the most con
flicting accounts of what took place at
the meeting. The Dally Telegraph, which
Is probably the best Informed, asserts thst
the cabinet crisis was postponed until this
evening and the discussion of the finance
question will be continued at the resumed
meeting today, but whatever may he the
upshot, Piemler Balfour will neither resign,
dissolve Parliament nor summon an autumn
ses . Ion. The Daily Telegraph also discusses
tlie question vf a royul commission bring
appointed to consider the whole finance
question. The Standard, nit the other hand,
asserta with equal Ksltlvetie thai tho
finance inquiry was finished and the ad
journed meeting will deal with foreign
polle.
