Banken Haldinir Bonds Authorize the Tniitee to Settle the Claims, Which Helps Some. 1\ If there is one thing in the world s'upposed-to be absolutely devoid of a conscience, it is' supjwseJ to be a mortgage. Men who hold mortgages may, privately, be kind aiid generous, but the man who owes a mortgage knows all the time that he has walv- :: ed all claims to mercy and has confessed no expectation of clemency If he falls to pay interest and principal as specified ^n the bond." So when you ftnd a man foreclosing a mortgage and then later volunteering the information that he finds his lie:irt too sort to enforce the provisions of the uiort- K»Ke. it would seem to mark an era in human progress. The Ueglster noted some days ago I, ;that the bondholders of the lola Port- iMaud. following the defaulting in the . paying of interest duo. hud foreclosed their mortgage.

In view of the fact that there is a possibility of a contest over the office of county attorney, a story which reached town today and which seemed to bare a semblance of reliability, tliat in South Osage the election officials inspired by a worthy desire to allow everybody to vote, overstepped the law's provisions "and that under a strict enforcement of the regulations the entire vote of that precinct may be thrown out. The story goes that the voting booth was practically moved to the home of a sick voter to i»er- mlt him to cast his ballot. )f this Iiroves true and the law invalidates the election held in that precinct, the result will be Interesting. The chief effect ot the dropping of this precinct would be in the votes on county attorney and governor, the two close ones in the state and count>'. South Osage on the gubernatorial contest went 55 for Capper and 68 for Hodges. As Capper claims a lead of 53 votes in the entire state, this would add to his majority by 13, making it 66. In tbl case of the county attorney­ ship. South Osage gave its vote as follows: For Forrest 70; for Culllson 56. As the vote was canvassed, Forrest A>D THEY ARE ALL WORKING TO GETHER TO ATOID IT.

The attitude of all the powers in working for a peaceful settlement it Is believed, will result in avoiding actual conflict. Servia, however, hasn't yet replied to the Austria-Hungarian suggestion that the Servian occupation of Albanian territory or of a port on the Adriatic will not be tolerated. It is understood that Count Von Berchthbld, Austro-Hungarlan Foreign Minister, has prbposed to give extensive privileges to Servia In connection with the projected Adriatic-Danube railway. The Albanian chiefs at a meeting at the seaport of" Alvona have 'proclaimed the autonomy of their country. Turkey Is now in better position to ask for an armsticd as it is understood that strong reinforcements have reached Tchatalja and might hold out there for days. Tha duel between Turkish warships and the Bulgarian artillery appears still to be in progress at Bodosto, on the sea of Marmora. Little jealousies existing among the Balkan allies cropped out again at Salonlkl. The Bulgarians who followed the Greeks Into the city telegraphed King Ferdinaiid that the town is now under his sceptre. -A'^lctter TPec'I^^^P'frtyw-'a jn^nibef-of' the American Embassy in Constantinople depicts the terrible conditions of the Turkish wounded. The letter adds that the Turkish government has lost control of the city, and seems helpless. Men >'ow Arailahle. "Washington, Kov. 12.—A landing force of at 2,000 men is now available from the international fleet in the harbor of Constantinople, and could be instantly sent ashore should a Moslem outbreak endanger the lives of foreigners in the Tfirkish capital. This force is considered by the state department "to . be fully adequate to meet any emergency that might arise, jeopardizing the safety of the nationalities represented by the score of ves sels mobilized in the Ottoman harbor, and any anxiety previously felt for Americans is entirely relieved by assurances made to the department today that Russia will assume responsibility for the safety of all citizens of the United States. There are at present in the harbor at Constantinople, eleven warships; two British, two Russian, two French, two Italian, two Austrian and one Oerman in addition to the stationaires regularly maintaluLd there by the differeht jowers. Another German vessel, a Spanish and a Dutch.ves­ sel, as well ,as two Italian hospital ships, are expected to reach Constantinople tonight or tomorrow. Advices to the state department indicate that Constantitlople remains entirely quiet and fliat precautionary measures t^ave already been adopted by the Turkish government.

Washington, Nov. 12.—The secret of ili^ almost complete failure of the sup posiHlIy almost Invincible Turkish army is not far to seek. In the opinion of th..» olTiC-.rj of the general staff of the United States army, who are studying the question from ever>- angle. Ij'alfie economy and poor administration are said to tell the story. "in the days of Abdul Hamld,' member of the general staff said today "the "Curkish army would have swept away the allied forces like chalT before the wind. After the downfall of the Sultan and the new regime in Tui;key, there was a feverish desire to develop the country materially afid the' liberal sums of money formerly allotted to the maintenance of the army were diverted into the improvement of roads and the construction of public works on a large scale. The German instructors, a very serious error, because of their loyalty to Al)- dul Hamid, the young Turkish oSl- cers educated in the German schools and methods, the very flower of the army, were driven off. "Naturally: disorganization began and progressed steadily, and with £t few competent and capable officers, the army was soon afflicted with dry rot. Kconoiny was the watch-/ord and no new supplies were boiight. But even with modern guns the Turk would still have been at a great disad vantage, for by the same' false rules 'of economy there have, been no pur^ chases for some time of ammunition, either for large or small arms. Thia explains tl^e de8i>erate hand-to-hand encounters of the Turks; they had ao ammunition for their mnskets and battery after battery was: abandoned to.the Bolgariana. and tbe 8ei|vian« SiXIEEil ARE DEAD, FIREENDADLYHURI PASSEXGER TRAIX.
