PLAN TO SETTLE
BALKANJHSPUTE Enflaod, Russia and France Agree on Programme. MAKES EIGHT PROPOSALS Independence of Bulgaria to Rsoog itized and the International Confer ence of the Powers Is to Fix Tur key's Compensation—Same Action Is Taken Regarding the Annexation of Crete to Greece. London, Oot. 16.—Great Britain, Russia and France have reached an agreement on a programme to be sub mitted to the other powers as a basis Cor discussion by the proposed Euro pean conference Jto settle the Balkan situation. The proposals to be laid be fore the powers are eight in number. The first Is to the effect that art icles 1 to 22 of the treaty of Berlin, which relate to Bulgaria and Eastern Roumelia, shall be replaced by stipu lations recognizing the independence of Bulgaria as at present constituted and determining the financial obliga tions of Bulgaria toward Turkey. New clauses probably will settle also the Question of the Oriental railway. The second and third proposals are that the powers shall take note of the annexation by Austria-Hungary of Bos nia and Herzegovina and the return of the sanjak of Novipazar to Turkey. The fourth article relates to Crete. It replaces article 23 of the treaty of Berlin by clauses recognizing the an nexation of Crete to Greece and de termining the financial obligations of Greece, in respect to Crete, toward Turkey. It is understood that the four powers under whose protection Crete has been, Russia, Great Britain, France and Italy, will settle the Cre tan question in concert with Turkey before referring it to the conference. It is proposed also that the second part of article 23 of the Berlin treaty, which provides special regulations for the government of other parts of Eura pean Turkey, shall cease to have force when the powers are assured that a satisfactory settlement is effected. Same Arrangement for Armenia. The fifth proposal is to the effect that arrangements similar to the above shall apply to the Armenian provinces of Turkey. The sixth article deals with Monte negro. The Montenegrin rights of sov ereignty are limited by article 29 of the treaty of Berlin. It is proposed that articles 26 to 33 inclusive of the Berlin treaty shall be condensed to a single article abrogating all the re strictions imposed by the treaty under the original article 29, which it is pro posed to sweep away. The seventh point in the programme is the statement that it is desirable to seek and give compensation to Servia and Montenegro by a rectification of the Bosnian and Herzegovinian fron tiers adjoining Novipazar. This is taken to imply that a strip will be taken from the territory annexed by Austria-Hungary. The eighth proposal concerns the river Danube and declares it is desir able to revise the regulations govern Ing Danube traffic so as to give larger rights to the states bordering on the river. The eight, articles of the programme are followed by a declaration that as the new Ottoman constitution fore Bhadows a reorganization in conform Ity with the principles of other Euro pean states the powers are prepared to consider in concert with Turkey, so soon as these reforms are realized the best means of doing away with capitulations. It is declared also that this occasion could be taken to con sider the abolition of the postoffices now maintained by foreign powers in Turkey. TREATY RIGHT ABOLISHED PtfOiflners in Bulgaria Under Jurisdic tion of Local Courts. Sofia, Bulgaria, Oct. 16.—A disagree able impression has been produced in diplomatic circles here by a circular note from the Bulgarian minister of justice which orders that in the future the subjects of foreign powers in Bui garia shall be treated on the same basis as natives in other words, they are no longer to enjoy the inter njediary of their own consuls. The circular sets forth that the declara' tlon of Bulgarian Independence on Oct, 6 has annulled the so called capitula tions which exempted foreigners from the jurisdiction of the local courts. The diplomatic representative of one of the great powers describe^ this circular as a "high handed action,' which the powers would vigorously op pose. This tendency of Bulgaria to extricate herself from treaty obliga tions in ways that are not popular, he added, will lead the powers to insist upon the retention of the capitula tions for a definite period as one of the conditions of the Bulgarian independence. li&f baton ji mmmm* ®Il€ CLOSE TO MONTENEGRO.

There have been demonstrations of the unemployed also at Sunderland and Maidstone. Albert V. Grayson, Socialist member from Yorkshire, tried to raise a de bate in the house on the unemployed question. The speaker, however, ruled him out of order. Mr. Grayson then created a scene by denouncing the members for not succoring the starving thousands on the streets of London and defied the speaker. The speaker then instructed the sergeant at-arms to remove the recalcitrant Socialist,' hereupon Mr. Grayson withdrew his remark and said, amid the jeers of his colleagues: "I leave this house with the great est pleasure."
