The Turkish battleship Fand had opened fire on the Cretans, who disputed the mareih of a body of Mussulman troops to raise the scige of the blockhouse at Malata^ but the admirals, for some reason, thought this desperate action was improper and compelled the silence of the. Turkish guns. The affair greatly puzzles the diplomats here, who have bcctt led to believe that, for the present at least, Turkey was to have its own Way 011 the island, It is a game of fast and loose that complicates the sitnation. The affair virtually ended in a victory for the Christians, for the convoy intended for the relief of Malata had to return to Canea. Meanwhile, tight- ing between the Turks and Cretans is going on at llctimo and elsewhere. The villages of Trikalaria and Nero- kpuro; have, .been, burned by basbi- bazouks. Firing also .continues outside of Candia, where the Christians have repulsed the Turks. ATHENS, March 3.—The identical note which has been presented by the representatives of the powers to the Greek governmtnt says the annexation of Crete is impossible and that they decline to accept such a proposal. The note confers instead an absolutely effeclivo autonomy assurance to Crete of a separate government under the Niiscrainty of the sultan, These con- ditious, however, not being realized except by the'withdrawal of the Creek troops from the island and of the Greek ships from Cretan waters or from points where the powers are in occupation, the powers confidently rely upon the wisdom' of the Greek government to cease to oppose the efforts for the welfare of Crete and the preservation of peace. Therefore, Greece is solemnly warned that unless the aforesaid withdrawal occurs within six days the powers will not hesitats to take any coercive steps necessary to enforce it, and their decision is irrevocable. lloNiiojf, Marclifl.— It is no longer possible to deny that the situation in the east has'become one of the utmost gravity. It is now a matter of practical certainty and it is understood by the powers themselves that Greece will refuse, to yield cither to the request or threat. It is expected further that in the event of any pressure whatever from the powers it will declare war against Turkey and within :i few days begin a, campaign in Macedonia and Thessaly. It is virtually admitted that tho powers are not prepared for any such exigency, and it is scarcely hoped that they will be able to deal with it iu harmony; in fact, it is now an open secret that they have been able to reach the present point of agreement only with the greatest difficulty, and that the bonds which hold them together at this moment arc of th« weakest description. ATHHSH, March S.—The official Gazette publishes u decree calling out the. reserves of 1S01, 1H90, JS80 and 18vS8 within three days. It is estimated that Greece will then have 100.000 men •nuclei 1 arms. LONDON, March f>.—The rapid mobilization of Turkish troops on the Greek frontier con (inns the, belief which prevails among military men that Turkey is more ready for war than Greece. The Greek army is admitted to be far below modern requirements. ]f the Greek army reserves are mobilized, it is stated they will be little better than mobs armed with obsolete rifles and lacking in artillery. LONDON, March 0.—It is now believed that war between Greece and Turkey is imminent. It is felt that a dispatch signed by 100 liberal and Jrish natipna), members of the house of commons and sent tonbe king of Greece, syrnpatliiz- ing with his stand in behalf of Crete, was a serious mistake, as it will only mislead the king into a belief that Great Britain will not join the other powers in coercive measures. NKW. YOKK, March 8.—The Greek minister of foreign affairs cabled Greek Consul General Boatssj, stationed here, who is aleo acting as Greek minister to this country, instructing him to call out all members of the Grecian reserve forces in the United States 'and urge them by every means in his power to go to the assistance of their native country, Boatssi said the cablegram is of tho most alarming nature, and indicated that war is imminent. Another Mtftpter In Ch«#okee'« Alleged Bigamy Sentatfon. Mir.WMTRKB, XVis., March 6.—A sensational discovery has been made by the attorneys in the divorce suit of Mrs. Sarah J. Koddis. of Milwaukee, against her husband, Henry Roddis, who mysteriously disappeared more than thirty years ago. Roddis Was located a short time ago at Cherokee, la., where he was one of the most prominent and prosperous residents. Me had another wjfe and a large family, who refused to believe the charges made against him. Family No. 2 characterized the suit as one of blackmail, and the people of Chefokee sided with them. Information, how^ ever, has been received, -which, in the opinion of the attorneys, amounts to a confession by Roddis that he is the man who disappeared from Milwaukee under a cloud so many years ago, leaving his wife and child behind him. Shortly after the whereabouts of Roddis was ascertained and preparations for the suit begun, he again mysteriously disappeared; although denying .. that, .he ..was the person accused. It develops, however, that when he left Cherokee he proceeded to Oklahoma, and remained there long enough to secure a divorce, not from his Cherokee wife, but from his Milwaukee wife. DURRANT MUST HANG. Supreme Court A mi-inn the Decision of the Lower Conrt. SAN FrtANcisco, March 0.—The supreme court has affirmed the decision of the lower court in the case of Theodore Durrant, found guilty of the murder of Blanche Lamont, in Emanuel church almost two years ago. He appealed from the verdict of guilty, alleging errors in the ruling of the trial judge and filing avoluminous bill of exceptions. The trial judge, however, was affirmed in all his disputed rulings, and the verdict approved by the supreme court. The case will now be sent back to the superior court, which will fix a date for Durrant's execution. When Durrant was informed by the head Bailor of the supreme court's decision, he burst into tears and said this was a very cruel world: He said 'that some - da.y the truth would p.rev.ail a,nd h.e would be vindicated. A Cyclone In Kentucky. LOUISVILLE. Ky., March 6,—A cyclone did considerable damage in eastcentral Kentucky. At Winchester several, buildings were unroofed and three new ones demolished. At Mt. Sterling the great McBrayer distillery was unroofed. The Louisville & Nashville round house at Rowland was wrecked and property suffered severely at Stanford. Appointed Senators May Not He Seated, WASHINGTON, March 8.—The leading senators arc of the opinion that the men appointed in Kentucky and Florida to be United States senators will not be seated. It is the opinion the opposition will be sufficient to prevent a vote until the legislatures oi those states assemble. Iowa Law Adopted. BissiAUCJK, N. I). March 5.—The senate passed the Iowa railroad law and the house took the same action^ The vote in both houses was unanimous, although the bill was at first bitterly fought.

GfcEEKS SEf THE POWERS DEFIANCE, At the Government Refuses to Abandon Crete—tter Artnfr tVlh lie oh n Wft* footing When the European Ultimatum —Powers Hold Divided Opinion* Athens, March 8.—The war fever continues unabated, both the king and his government defying the ultimatum of the powers. They are decided to undertake war against Turkey and to put the whole army on a war footing. The total strength of the Greek army when the ultimatum expires on Sunday is exp'ecfed to anicflibt to 50(000 ttfljh. The third class of marine reservists has been called out WAtErtS ON A XEKt) A LKADBK. of a Great Statesman Acutely jrelt In Karopc. Vienna, March 8.—The situation has become most critical. The European concert is imaginary, No concert is possible' withput: the; guiding first- violin, such as Prince Bismarck or Lord Beaconsfleld would have been. Without a directing personality the musicians would be continually playing false notes, resulting indiscord and chaos. Count Goluchowski's sensible proposal for coercion in the summer of 1896, which was declined by Lord Salisbury, was honest and offered a chance to save the situation. The means since employed are revolutionary, forming precedents which must bring about open antagonism between Great. Britain and Russia in the struggle for the- wor'.d's hegemony, .which Russia would fain defer. Lord Salisbury's attitude is consistent, presuming his nerve,' which failed him in 1896, Is steady. England's opportunity is now. Lord Salisbury's paramount anxiety is to avoid the odium of breaking the peace., Greece will relieve him of this by refusing to evacuate Crete, relying on the support of Italian and 'British sympathy with Crete. Commanding the Dardanelles and covering Egypt, Crete must, according to British policy, belong to Greece, when, with British assistance, Crete will become another Gibraltar. Russia'cannot possibly allow this. Hence coming eventualities will find Rjssia siding with Turkey and also with Bulgaria, which bates Greece. The outbreak of hostilities portends another Panama for France, which holds a hundred millions in Turkish securities. Vflst ttttmage ttone l>y Hood*, Mlrtdlfc Staffed.

D., March 8.—The legislature of North Dakota wound up Its session in one of the most tumultuous scenes in the state's history. Governor Briggs vetoed every appropriation bill, for the reason that if they became laws they would increase the state debt beyond the constitutional limit. The Republicans, who have a two-thirds majority in each house, passed all the appropriation bills over the governor's veto. Judge. Vaplo Consents to Hun.

Chicago, March 8.— Unless the de- 1 mands of I.SOO plasterers and hod carriers for a restoration of wages ave ij acceded to by employing contractors before Monday noon, the Chicago Building Trades Council, by action taken last night, declares that the 25,000 members of its different trades shaU enter upon a sympathetic strike. Such a strike would affect, it is asserted, at least 100,000 persons, and would assume proportions of vaster magnitude than any such demonstration seen in Chicago in years. Those who are promoting the strike declare, too, it would I cause a -further business dRw-Msioh of tremendous import; and thay^jjse witi'I would avoid such a calami^ befa.lUai; the city should use their influence in endeavoring to remove the caiSise. • Wants German Navy Incruaslk Berlin, March 8.— In the reiol.
