IN SIGHT. SITUATION AQAIN LOOKS WARLIKE. ot to to King Ofcoirge by the Emperor — Torkey ,8*ndlnjf 8Ior« to Ltmdon, May 2S.^—The aspect of east- era affairs Is less peaceful. Turkey Is sending 7,000 more troopa to Thessaly, ftnd it ft sald-that the sultan has promised his ministers not to relax his hold upon that province. The note of the powers certainly does not yield on a single point, and states even that the peace conference must be held at Constantinople, and not of Pharsala, but the sincerity of both Germany and" Russia is doubted, and any sign of dissension among the powers makes for obstinancy -on tho part of the sultan. It is reported from Vienna that Emperor Nicholas has advised King George, for his own safety, to appoint a military governor with exceptional powers and to concentrate 8,000 picked troops at Athens. - A dispatch to the Daily News from Constantinople says that tho identical note of the powers which was presented to. the Turkish government Tuesday, embodying the.terms of peace to which they will agree' declines to permit the abolition of the capitulations in the case of Greek subjects or the annexation -of TKessaly, but is much milder in tone than was'at first understood.

PRESBYTERIANS MAKE A RADICAL MOVE. One Secretary to Take the Place of Two tft the. Frosbytorlim Office ftt Wew York, nnrt Assembly to Govern the tT«o of Eagle Lake, Ind., May 26.—When the long fight over the Presbyterian build- Ing In New York -was finished Tuesday by a practically unanimous vote to sustain the majority report of the committee the commissioner's to the general assembly rose to their feel and sung "Praise God from -whom all blessings flow." • A rule waa adopted on.Dr. Withrow's motion, providing for the disposition of funds in the future for current expenses or according to the laws relat* ing to trusts. If this is- not done, money must be held by the boards for, Instruction from the. assembly. The purpose of this is to forbid the use of money for the cancellation of the debt on the Presbyterian building except after authorization from the church. One point of Dr. Withrow's report that pleased the assembly was regarding the ruling made by the attorney- general of the United States that the grant of land for a catholic chapel at West Point is illegal. It was doubly applauded when Dr. Withrow reminded the commissioners that tho attorney- general is h'.mself a catholic. .The Rev..John D. Hewitt of Emporia, Kas., chairman of the committee on homo missions, presented his report. The Rev. Dr. W. C. Roberts, one of the two secretaries of the board,'epoke concerning tho work-of the last yoar and explained that the debt of 'the board is actually some $15,000 less than was shown on the books at tho close of tho fiscal year by the receipt of cash gifts from some who had intended to bequeath money by will. The adoption of the resolution directing the employment of but one secretary in the future for the homo mission boar'd was fiercely opposed, and its final success will work many changes. Some assert that neither pr. Roberts nor Dr. McMillan can remain, and that it is more than possible that Dr. Kane, may be the new secretary to succeed them both.

But it la thought this assembly will be pre-eminently missionary. Baptlits Snub Mr. Oofium.

The Jti3«» of the tJpper Hotiss of Con- lt»*t» I* to Produce R«»«nu« Without Rjttrencie Protection—Senators Giro Notice of Amendments. Washington, May 26.—The debate on the tariff bill began in the senate Tuesday, with crowded galleries and a large attendance of senators and the tariff leaders of the house.- Minor business claimed attention up to 2 o'.clock p. m., when Senator Aldrich (Rep., R, L), In'charge of the tariff b'ill, had the measure laid before the senate, and took £he floor for the opening speech. Without niaklng tn- Vldious distinctions between the two bills, Mr. Aldrich clearly stated as the belief of, the finance committee that the house' bill .would not yield.revenue adequate for the needs of the government. Mr. Aldrich yielded for a formal written notice by Mr. Vest (Dem., Mo.), member of the finance committee, stating that when the paragraphs were reached relative to beer, manufactured tobacco, snuff and cigarettes he would move'to strike out.the provisions relating thereto, Mr. Quay (Rep., Pa.) asked if the vote on this motion to strike out could be divided, as he might support some of the propositions and oppose others. ' Mr. Vest answered that the rules would permit separate votes. " It was agreed at the outset that the formal reading of the bill be dispensed with until it waa considered by paragraphs, and then that committee amendments would be considered first, after which each paragraph would be open to general amendment. Several senators gave notice of Amendments to. the bill which they propose to offer. , • • Senator Aldrich went over the entire tariff ground to his exposition of the features of the blll,~hi8 presentation occupying two hours in its delivery The speech embraced about ten columns of newspaper space. Nearly one-half of it was given over to an explanation of the senate sugar schedule. The senator went over practically the same ground of tho republican caucus Monday afternoon and so the matter waa not new to that side of the chamber. In that part of the speech devoted to the house bill Senator Aldrich did not. mince words or attempt in the slightest degree to aoften the effects of the sledgehammer criticism of the ways and means committee's, production, He stamped it as defective in' many particulars and in its "moat essential feat- urea, and declared the conclufflon and estimates i submitted . by Chairman Dingley and his associates as Incorrect and misleading.^, His "unsparing criticism of the 'house measure made further explanations as to the reasons and necessity for its radical reconstruction at the hands of the finance committee unnecessary. , Tho senator was brief and direct in his arguments. showing the necessity of imposing a temporary tax on beer, tobacco and tea, without -which he estimated that the revenues 'of the country for 1^98 would fall short $29,000,000. He said that it was the conviction of the framers of the bill that beer should bear its proportionate share of the'burden of carrying on tho government; and that opposition to the. internal revenue provision of the bill could not be made on tenable grounds. With the presentment of the Republican side of the tariff case by Senator Aldrich the senate battle may ba said to have fairly opened and there will be no let up until a final vote ia reached^; The Republicans have fully decided to concentrate all energies upon ,the one point of expediting action. .It is realized that the real struggle over the great schedules about which hot differences are aroused will be when the con- fference committees of the two houses lock horns, and there is a general desire to hurry the day when; the measure is thus-consigned. Tariff Uws are made in conference more than they are by the independent action of either branch of congress, and the heavyweights are reserving their strength for that. interesting and vital period. Opinions differ as to the time of arriving at a vote, but the estimate moat frequently heard Is July 1, with an additional thirty days for conference consideration. Opposition to the beer tax among Republicans seems at this stage ^to center largely with Senators Hanna, Spooner' and Platt, of New York. Whether or. not this opposition will defeat the, internal feature remains to be seen. The general inipres- aa is that the bill will contain the internal revenue provision about 03 now agreed upon when presented for executive approval, ' Gallon* Introduces Pooling Bill. Washington, May 26.—Senator Cul- lorn Tuesday introduced by request a bill, to amend the interstate commerce law, Th.e bill prescribes relations for pooling, requiring that pooling contracts shall jaot extend beyond five years, and that they ahall name the maximum and minimum rates to be charged, requiring the approval of the Interstate Commerce Commission before the agreements tan become effective. Th bill provides for a complete vision of the interstate law.
