The movement to free Healy is not one that will be allowed to involve any political matter in any way. lo- l::r.s and Allen cotmtians feel that it is a disgrace to the comrai'nity to remain passive when an evident injustice is being done. If Governor Stuhbs or whoever is responsible for the failure to liber!.l^-««aly has a good and legal reason for the present attitude toward the prisoner, it sliould become known and then and not till then will public clamor cease. Xo law-abiding; citizen wants to see a blood-thirsty criminal, guilty as can be, with no show of reformation, turned loose if it is legally proper to hold him. On the other hand, if the facts are as they r.ppear: if it is true that Heal." is ncinsr held solely on his record back East, then it ig time that the people absolve themselves of responsi- hilily in such an action and let the world know who is to blame He.ilv is not a Catholic as many mpy have rurmised.

Bulgaria, Oct. 18.—A striking proclamation to the Bulgarian nation was issued today by King Ferdinand. In it he recounts the sufferings of Muccdonlan Christians and the pfl^orta of European powers to obtain better treatment for them and finally says he called the people to .-.rms only after the patience of "the Balkan nations had been exhausted. Ho says: "The tears of Balkan slaves and the groanings, of millions of Christians could not but stir our hearts and the he,irts of co-religionists. Our love of peace is now exhausted. To succor the Christian population of Turkey, there remains to ua no other means than to turn to arms. After the massacres of Istip and Kotschana, instead of according justice and satisfaction, Turkey ordered the moblliz.-ilion of her military forces. Our long patience thus has been put to .i" rude teat. "I order the brave Bulgarian army to march on Turkish territory. Forward and may God be with you." Tnrkisfa Army Fled. Lonilon. Oct, IS.—The .whola Turkish garrison of Bornna, consisting of four tliousantk regulars and thne thouspnd Irregulars, took flight in the night before the capture of the town by the Montenegrins.

The loss on the Hildebrant barn amounts to about $250. including a good wagon, and a number of tools, a single harness and lady's slde-saddl6. The loss on the Lyons garage amount.s to something like $50, while the Ponsler loss is rated at $25. Mr. Hildebrant believes the barn was started bj- some children, who are continually playing up and down the alley. Some lialf hour before the fire, Mr. Hildebrant was in the bam and painted a sign.

Hillcs." "It is diflicult for an ordinary man in the compass of ordinary languago to compete with the testimony of character assassins and liars like Hillea— men, who. because of their falsehoods, incite weak-minded men to actual assassinations," was the passage which brought out a storm of protests from tlie committee. McCormick argued heatedly that his statement was ad- niissahlfj as evidence, while Senators Oliver and Clapp declined to allow McCormick to proceed and demanded that hi withdraw his words. The. statement was finally admitted to record witttout being read from the prepared copy. The reference to the attempt upon Roosevelt's life was incidental to Mc- Cormick'c general statement of campaign expenses of the Progressives in Illinois. It follows: "So far as I know the cost of tho campaign in Illnois was defrayed by A-^^ Chauncey Dewey and myself. 1 gavW^V'^*, Ot>wey $1(;,000 and. gave nql to excwp-^fl " $10,000 toward the mainten|anctrs<^fbo'^^.
