The Balkan plenl- ' potentlarles who hn u received full powers j ... ,. . , . . ..on, their respective governments, np- j pointed n committee today to dralt a t note to the Turkish plenipotentiaries ex- plaining why the pence conference must i now be considered broken off It s ! hoped the draft will be ready fur ap pioval by the full delegation Monday night. Th's action of the allien Is pan of a series of well-considered forms of pressuo with which the Balkan dclesatcs hope to obtain their object without resuming the war. The. meeting today lasted for an hour vand n half and the course to be followed v as given earnest consideration. Two i"lstlnct views were manifested one for the Immediate ri'pture of the negotiations, leading to a resumption of the war and the other favoring a temporising policy In order to avoid Irrevocable steps. The alter course triumphed and a commit- lee was appointed, consisting of one mem- her from each delegation us follows: ! Michael Madjaroff, liulgarlan minister nt London; Prof. Gcorglcs Strelt. Greo ; minister to Autrla-Hunnarv. Court j Voynovltch. chief of King Nicholas' cab. ; lnct. representing Montenegro, and Dr. 1 It. Vcsnltch. Servian minister to Fruii"", j with tho addition of M.

General lines were laid down on which the note Is to be drafted, comprising tl'e arguments already t.et fortli many thpi as to W)iy ,th5 league dcirrunds the sur render of Adrlanoplc and ' the Aegean Islands, us. an Indispensable cundltluu- uoJ thA conclusion of peace. That the policy of the allies Is to gain time Is patent and does not deceive any body. The delegates decided that the advantages to bo derived from the tc-j sumption of hostilities would be In pro- portion to tne iisks tuey ran and that j they would not take that step unless ab oolulely forced to do so. It Is realized that even a partial reverse would have grave moral and material consequences apart from tho loss of thousands of men. In addition, the fact Is not overlooked that there is danger of Rumania advanc ing from tho rear and of Austria impos ing on Servia and Montenegro Its con ditions for remaining neutral. The only disadvantage ln delaying decisive action Is In keeping large armleH inactive pnd on a war footing for a long time, thus heavily taxing both tho financial and agricultural resources of the country.

Sickles sat amid the war relics In his Fifth avenue home tonight, expect ing momentary arrest In n suit brought by tho state to recover JJi3.47fi for which ho has failed to account. It Is chnrgrd, as chairman ot the New Tork Monu ments commission. Within his call wer.i his son, Stanton, and an aged negro retnlnrr. The otder for the veteran's arrest, Is sued on SaturdiiN iv Supreme Court Justice Rudd at 'Imny. and n copy of the complaint . placed In Sheriff Harburger's hands this evening by Deputy Attorney tlenoial Francis Ken nedy, who brought thfin here. Mr. Ken nedy nnnounced his Intention of ask ing for Immediate service. After a talk with Mr. Kennedy. , however, Sheriff .Harburger said ho would give the docu ments to his lawyer to determine whether they arc propeily drawn. This, he thought, would glvo the general respite from arrest until Monday. The order cannot bo legally served on Sunday. Unless General Sickles Is prepared to furnish at once a jr.O.COO bond. Sheriff Harburger said, he will have to go to Ludlow street Jail until the bond Is forthcoming. There was no Inkling to night as to who, If anyone, would come to tho veteran's aid! FlnK I'lncrit In WIhiIimts. General Sickles declined to see callers or comment on' the charges against him His agd negro servant met all callers at the door and turned them away. Hut for the J'lrst time In weeks, the shades at all the windows of the house were raised, and In each window there was placed an American flag. y Someone who thought the general would refuse admittance to tho process servers, asked Sheriff Harburger what he would do In case he found the door locked against him. "I shell llot break It down of that you -maybe-sure' the sheriff -replied. "I shall have to station my deputies around the house and beslego it." Xo A lit from 'Wife. Mr. Sickles, who recently pawned her Jewels to save her Husband's war relics from sale, will not come to his aid in the present crisis, it is belloved. She said that she would welcome him with open arms, If he should come to llvo with her, but did not feel that she could expend all her money In bis behalf. The order for General Sickles' arrest comes . as a climax ot a distinguished and picturesque career. Born in New York in 1825, ot a wealthy family, Gen eral Sickles served its a soldier, legisla tor and diplomat. Tho guest ot honor for many years at gatherings ot civil war veterans, he was recently refused admission to a local organization of civil wsf veterans on the ground "or mili tary unskllftilness and reckless sacrifice of the lives of his men." Congress, which in 197 awarded him a medal of honor for bruvery, three years ago re fused to grant him a lieutenant general ship. In his old age financial troubles beset him one after nnother, and his wife, son and daughter became estranged from him. Kr- Killed l Kick!. General Sickles was a member of the house of representatives Just before th? outbreak of tho war and it was In Wash ington that ho shot and killed Philip Harton Key, a United States district at torney, for alleged attentions to his first wife, the daughter of un Italian musician. At the outbreak of the civil war. Gen eral Sickles raised and equipped at his own exjpnse five regiments of volun teers and as colonel of one of them, went to The front. Ho participated ln most of the great battles of the war. including Gettysburg, where he lost a leg and achieved distinction for bravery, re warded by promotion to the rank of major general. From 1869 to 1S73 he served as minister to Spain, where he met and married his present wife, the daugter of a Spanish councillor of state. Shortly after his re turn to thin country with her, the couplo separated and .Mrs. Sickles went back to Spain, where she remained until 1&08. Then she returned to New York. There were frequent reports of their reconcilia tion and for a year or more .Mrs. Sickles lived In a house adjoining her husband's, but It never appeared that they were really reconciled.

NEBRASKA REQUEST MADE SMALL l.ocnl IlcRrntM Nrrk !'.:,, oon Give This Ntntc n School Which Will Compnre Fnvnrnltly rrllli Others. While the regents of the University of Nebraska aro asking the legislature to appropriate $2,600,000 through n 1 mill levy to run six years, tho governing board of tho University of Wisconsin Is Wal lng a request of the present session of the Wisconsin legislature for a Sl, 000 00) appropriation to build dormitories for the men. Opinion Is that AVIsconsIn will get what it asks for. Nebraska wants only l,Go0,000 moro than the Badger Institution seeks, and the local regents, with this fund, will not simply build a set of dormitories, but will remove the university from the crowded down town district of Lincoln to the suburbs, nnd give Nebraska, an institu tion n keeping with the dignity and post-tlon-ofhls slate- nmonsr-tlie--nTat'-com-monwealths of- tha "west The publicity department of the University of Wis consin hao Issued the following report on the requests made by the regents of that state: The regents or the University of Wis consin have decided to ask tho state legislature, now In session. Jar t OVl.noo, to be appropriated in sums of $1V)00) n year for four years, ln order to provide and equip dormitories for men, a men's commons and union, and a student In firmary. The regents have also voted to request tho continuance of the present appropriation of $300,000 a year for the construction nnd equipping of academic buildings. For tho further development of unlvcr sltv extension work, the regents desire an inciease of $25,000 a year, making next year's appropriation fur extension pur poses, $1M),0C0, nnd $175,000 for the follow ing year. In addition, they desire a con tinuation of the present appropriation of $40 000 a year for agricultural extension work. Owing to tho reduction In the assessed valuation of personal property, resulting from tho adoption of the Income tax In Wisconsin, the university's fund for cur rent expenses provided for by tho three eighths of a mill tax has this year fallen below the amount anticipated. The re gents, therefore, have provided that the sum of I9U.089 be appropriated to make uu this year's decrease; that $17J,000 be pro vided for next year's decrease, and $223,030 for the following year's decrease. To purchase additional land upon which the regents now hold options they have decided to nsk the legislature for $TiO,000 a year for two 'e.nts. New athletic fields for tho department of physical education were located by the regents at their January meetlne These fields will occupy the land along the shore of Luke Mendota, back of the proposed dormitories for men. and west of the present dairy buildings. A Join'' committee of regents, faculty, alumni and students will probably be aopolnted to solicit funds from private miirces for the develODment of the proposed athletic field and buildings.
