Athens dispatch: The porte has signified its willingness to accept the terms of the proposal for the settlement of the Cretan troubles which originated with Count Golouchowski, Austrian minister of foreign affairs. The report is that Turkey? will grant Crete a new constitution^ ' the main features of which are the appointment of ' *a Christian 'governor' 'and the establishment of Cretan financial autonomy, with the payment of tribute to the sultan under the general guarantee of the European powers, the amount of tribute to be paid annually to be based upon the ratio of revenues of the islands. The terms of the proposal were, also submitted to the Christian deputies of Crete by the foreign consuls at Constantinople, and a majority of the deputies have signified their adherence to its conditions, At Frederick, Md., recently forty persons were more or less injured by the brakcs'of a. trolley car failing to work on the. steep mountain incline on the Frederick & Middletoyvn railway; *> ThVcar:onvw dent occurred started from Braddoek Heights at 7 o'clock.

The powers have virtually agfeed upon a policy which will compel Turkey to gi-aht the island reforms not falling, far short of autonomy. The entire matter will be left to the ambassadors at Constantinople. They will receive definite instructions after the forthcoming meetings between Nicholas, Franz Josef and .Wilhelni. Meanwhile thes French consul atCiinea and the Kussiatt naval commander there have received identical' instructions to assume the protection of all Cretan Christians. This promising condition of things is directly traceable to Lord Salisbury's refusal to join in a blockade, of Crete in the sultan's interest, and to his alternative suggestion that the powers ought to unite to compel Turkey to grant reasonable concessions to the islanders. The probability is that the eventual outcome will be some sort of autonomous regime, under the supervision of the foreign consuls at Canca. At Athens the feeling is sanguine that a speedy and satisfactory near at hand. This, at all events, i.s the belief in official circles. There is no such thing practicable now as political union of the 'island with '(Jrcece, and the mutual jealousies of the powers are too strong to allow either of them to appropriate it. The only way to put an end to a dangerous agitation was for the powers to make themselves arbiters of the situation unasked. This seems to be what they have done, and the next fortnight will probably witness their ultimatum to Abdul Humid. BRAZIL AND ITALY MAY FIGHT. IN Becoming Sltiiiit.Iou In Klo Janeiro Very Serious.
