England's Change of Policy in
Regard to Greece and
lias Assumed Definite Shape-She
Will Not Help to Blockade
Tf the Grecian Blockade Is Un
dertaken Turkey Should Be
Blockaded, Too.
change in the policy of Great Britain
foreshadowed in these dispatches, has
assumed definito shape. The recent
massacre of Armenians at Tokat, the
danger of further outbreaks in Anato
lia, and the action of the porte in semi
officially pointing out to the Turkish
press and provincial officers that the
blockade of the island of Crete by the
fleets of the powers, and the support
given to the Turkish forces by the for
eign fleets was a triumph for the policy
of the sultan, have had their effect in
showing that the Christians in Ar
taenia are
In Dangar «f Eiltrnilaatloa.
Consequently, it is semi-offlcially
stated hero that the British admiral in
Cretan waters has been notified not to
send any warships of Great Britain to
take part in the proposed blockade of
the ports of Greece. At the same time,
however, in order apparently to avoid
an open rupture with tho powers.
Great Britain will acquiesce in the
blockade of the Greek ports.
According to tho reports in diplo
matic circles here, the powers have al
ready been notified to this effect and
the withdrawal of Great Britain from
the blockade is the one subject dis
cussed in court and other circles. The
sultan's advisers are making the best
of the situation by pointing to the fact
that Great Britain does not con
stitute tho wholo of Europe, and
that so long as the sultan has
the support of Russia, France
Germany and Austria, he has nothing
to fear from Great Britain. It is whis
pered that France will, in all probabil
ity, follow tho example of Great
Britain. France, it is explained, could
readily take this step without disturb
ing to any appreciable degreo her ac
cord with Russia, and it is added that,
in any case, the French government
Would not risk taking part in the block
ade of Greece, which would be an act
of war, without first consulting the
chamber of deputies, whose approval of
the coercion iolicy is regarded hore .as
being far from certain.
Hhould lllockade Turkey, Too.
|ilt|is stated that Great liritam ha*
Intimated to the powers that if Greece
is blockaded steps should also be taken
to blockade the principal Turkish ports.
This latest move of Great Britain in
the eastern game has undoubtedly
called a halt for the present in the co
ercive measures and may, it is said,
bring about their abandonment.
In the meanwhile, in view of the im
minent danger of a clash on the fron
tiers of Greece, which may bring about
a declaration of war between Greoce
and Turkey, Great Britain has defin
itely proposed to the powers that steps
be taken to induce both Turkey and
Grtece to withdraw their forces half a
mile from the actual frontier, thus
leaving a mile of neutral ground be
tween the opposing armies.
Greece, it is explained, had pre
viously made a similar proposal to the
Turkish government, but the porte
consulted with the ambassadors of Rus
sia and Germany, seemingly the fore
most of the friends of Turkey at the
present juncture, with the result that
the representatives of those powers
advised the Turkish government to de
cline the offer.
The Turkish squadron, it is reported,
has been ordered to cruise in the
^Egean sea.

pected, he will have an interview with
ii. Hanotaux, the French minister of

the question of participation of France

New Chinese Minister En Rout*.
WASHINGTON, March 26.—Notice has
been received at the state department
that the new Chinese minister, Wo
Tinf? Fang, sailed for San Francisco on
the lbth iust., on the Gaelic, with a
numerous retinue and many tons of
personal belongings. The treasury de
partment has sent instructions to the
collector at San Francisco for the ex
tension of the usual courtesies to the
incoming minister.
IfftDjr Congressmen Aired Their Tlewa on
the Tariff—Jerry Simpson's Remarks.
'WASHINGTON, March 26.—The gen
eral debate in the house on the tariff
bill has closed. The last day devel
oped nothing particularly interesting
aside from the closing speeches. Tho
number of speeches made, however,
was large and included a few remarks
by Jerry Simpson who read from Mr.
McKinley's speech at the Minneapolis
convention the declaration that the
foreigner paid the tax. This state
ment, he said, was ridiculous. The
last congress, he proceeded to say,
had increased appropriations f50,000,
000, and now, according to Mr. McKin
ley's theory, the taxes on the foreign
ers were to be increased to pay for the
extravagance. The foreigner should
be glad, he said, that the last congress
had not been a two billion congress.
If tho taxes on the foreigner could be
sufficiently increased, he obsorved, sar
castically, the surplus could be distrib
uted among our people and every day
would be Sunday over here. [Laughter.]
He said he was himself a farmer who
farmed the farms, not the farmers. If
the Republicans had desired to do
something practical for the farmers,
why, he asked, had they left hides on
the free list? Mr. Simpson announced
himself a free trader.
Too Many Flood Refugees For Memphis
to Care For Alone.
MEMPHIS, March 26.—The Mississippi
river continues to fall, the gauge show
ing a drop of .1 in the past 24 hours.
The citizens relief committee has given
out an official statement, notifying the
outside world that this city is taking
care of o.ver (,000 pauper negro flood
refugees, and 3,000 head of stock.
This step was taken in order to show
that foreign aid is i^jnessary. Presi
dent Dickinson of the Little Rock
board of trade has arrived with $1,500,
the amount donated by the citizens of
Little Rock. The Memphis relief com
mittee took the sum and will apply
it properly. All levees are re
ported in good conditien and tho gen
eral situation is most encouraging.
The Mlaaonrl Receding.
PIERRE, S. D., March 26.—The past

says he expects very high water yet.

Alleged the Great Northern and
the Milwaukee Will Mal&
a Deal
By Which *he Fargo Southern
Will 0* Into the Hill
While the Milwaukee Will Get
the Great Northern Branch
to Aberdeen.
ST. PAUL, March 26 —A Dispatch
special from Fargo, says: In a n
fidential letter to a Fargo business man
a prominent railroad official of St.
Paul, who, for obvious reasons, wishes
his name kept secret, writes that he
has full and authentic information that
the deal is practically completed
whereby the Fargo Southern branch of
the Milwaukee road from Fargo to Or
tonville, Minn., is to be traded to the
Great Northern for the Aberdeen and
Watertown branches of tho latter's
road in South Dakota.
Reasons given are that the control
of the Milwaukee branch here will
eliminate the competition in the south
ern part of the valley with the Great
Northern and Northern Pacific, besides
giving the Great Northern one of the
best paying lines in the valley. The
comjietition of this branch is an import
ant factor, not only for wheat busi
ness, but more especially freight from
Eastward, wnich can be laid down
here to jobbers without delay at tho
Minnesota Transfer, as is frequently
experienced over the Great Northern
and Northern Pacific.
The transfer of Great Northern
branches in South Dakota to the Mil
waukee road would eliminate competi
tion there and for a large territory
would give Milwaukee exclusive OOB
Supreme Court Deciaion Doei Not Worry

Thirty liritith Sailor* Injured While

NEW YORK, March 26.—A dispatch
to The Herald from Malta says An
explosion which *ouM have had fear
ful consequences if it had happened in
the interior of the vessel, occurred to
the British first class cruiser Theseus,
while practicing outside the harbor

Of the injured ones succumbed.
