CETTINJE. Montenegro, May 6. King
Nicholas of Montenegro decided today to
evacuate the fortress of Scutari In re
sponse to the demand of the European
powers.
When he took possession of Scutari on
April 23, after a six-months siege which
cost the lives of thousands of Monte
negrins and Turks, King Nicholas de
clared that ho would hold the city until
the last drop of Montenegrin blood had
been split. As the European powers had
decided previously that Scutari was to
form part of tho futuro autonomous
state of Albania, a crisis was brought
about and the powers immediately
brought strong pressure to bear to forco
him and his troops to evacuate the place.
Somo of tho Montenegrin troops woro
withdrawn from Scutari, in order. It was
said to resist a possible Austratan ad
vance. Then word came that Austria
and Italy had entered Into an agreement
to solve the Albanian problem by a mili
tary expedition and it was known that
the Austrian army was preparing to
march forward.
The attitude of Russia under those cir
cumstances was a matter of great con
cern to Europe and when it Joined In the
pressure being exercised on Montenegron
great relief was felt, as It had been
thought Russian would resist any at
tempt to order Its army southward.
T t arm H err t .1 rinrlntr Mi n narntlo
tlons that the king of Montenegro would
other direction If he would give up
Scutari and that his majesty was prepar
ing to accept this offer.
Tension l Relieved.
LONDON, May 6. Sir Edward Grey.
the British foreign minister, announced
at today's meeting of the ambassadors
that Montenegro had unconditionally
placed tha question of the future of
Scutari. . EVUifi hand's 0f the European
power. '
The decision reached by King Nicholas
at the last mom on t had tho effect of ro-
llevlng immediately the tension in Euro-
pean politcs. It caused unbounded satis-
faction to diplomats and the public. The
stock exchange responded at once.
It Is generally hoped this action of
Montenegro will do away with all neces-
slty for military excursions into Albania,
auch as Austria and Italy were contem
plating against Easod Pasha, DJavld
Pasha and other Independent leaders.
No Condition to Concession.
BERLIN, May b. No conditions were
mentioned by Montenegro today, when it
Informed the German foreign office that
It had decided to place Scutari In the
hands of the powers.
On the other hand the foreign effico
says there Is no evidence that any con.
crete step in this direction has yet been
taken and doubt Is expressed by officials
as to the veracity of the reports that
Montenegro has already evacuated the
dry.

WASHINGTON. Mny &.-Collcgo msn.
under the latest scheme devised by the
War department, will be organized Into
a reserve, corps of officers available for
the command of volunteer troops In cns
of war. Secretary Garrison and Major
General Leonard Wood, chief of staff,
would establish two camps of Instruction,
one ?it Gettysburg and the other at the
presidio at Monterey, Cal., to which the
college students would be sent to bo
placed under the direct Instructions of
regular army officers who will bo de
tailed to the two posts.
Major General Wood believes the plan
will not meet with any objection from
those opposed to so-called "militarism "
Under the plan students volunteering for
Instruction and drawn from the eastern
and southern universities would be trans
ported to Gettysburg, while those from
other sections of the country would go to
the Pacific coast. The plan has been
carefully worked out and able-bodied
students over 17 years of age will bo
given opportunity to learn the duties of
an officer In command of men.
Letters already have been sent by the
War department to the presidents of all
the great Institutions of learning of the
country urging them to lay the matter
before the students. It Is believed that
2,000 college men will respond to the call.
Queer Error in Bond

PIERRE, S. D.. May B. (Special.) In
surance circles In the state have boon
smiling broadly for several days over an
error In a policy form sent out by one of
the surety companies organized under
tho laws of this state, and the fact that
many of the men In that company are
also prominently Interested In political
affairs of tho state gives the error a
little more zest. One of the questions In
the application form Is to tho amount of
lifo insurance carried by the applicant
for a bond policy, and this was Intended
to be followed by a query as to the na
ture of such policies and to whom pay
able, but the printer, at least he Is the
one accused, changod tho word "policies"
to "politics," and the form reads: "What
is the nature of your politics and to whom
payable," in which form the application
blanks have been sent out over the State
and are In the hands of their agents.

WASHINGTON. May S.-Contempt of
court Judgments ngalnst Samuel Gompcrs,
John Mitchell and Krnnk Morrison, the
labor leader, for their violation of
court's Injunction In the noted Ducks
Stove and Range case, were afflromd to
day by the district court of appeals, but
the Jail sentences Imposed were held to
have been too sovcre. so tho court re-
ducd Gompers' sentence from one year

The lower court sentenced Mitchell to
nine months and Morrison to six. The

doubtedly will be asked again to review
the decision. I'nllke previous decision
In this case, which have been unant
mously against the labor leaders, the
court of appeals was divided.
Chief Justice Sheppard dissented, held
that the wholo decision should be re

was a criminal offense and that tne
statute of limitations had run In tho case.

the majority opinion, held that tho re

With that the dissenting chief Justice
disagreed, saying in his opinion:
I am unable to see I10W the refusal to
apologize for an act, the commission of
which has been expressly dented, shows
reprehensible Intent or temper. On tha
contrary It seems to mo the natural con

The decision said:

that he had not yet received tho formal

sions might be expected as to whether
It would be In contravention of the treaty
with Japan.
In the absence of Instructions to the
contrary, Ambassador Chlnda will not

after Secretary Bryan returns. In the
meanwhile the embassy will haco oppor

Meanwhile the government legal ex-
perts are studying tho Webb bill In an
effort to locate what may bo points of
attack. Many officials here bollevo the
lawyers of the California legislature have
succeeded In framing a bill that may
successfully resist attack on the ground
that It violates any provision of tho
treaty of 1911 between the United States
and Japan. In that case Japan would need
to reply upon the general provisions of
International law to secure relief from
the threatened discrimination It alleges.
In some apprehension that an effort
might might be made to connect with the
present California situation the plac
ing of orders for thrre dreadnaughts, the
Japanese embassy oflclals today declared
these vessels were appropriated for by
the last Diet before the land legislation be
gan In California and that placing orders
at this time was simply In execution of
plans to cover a period of years in naval
develpment.
The Joint board, composed of the high
est three officers of tho army and navy,
