Greece, however, points to the fact that it is impossible for her to withdraw her troops from that island in view of the danger of further massacres. On the other hand, Greece offers to place her troops in Crete Under the control of the powers in order that they may be available for the restoration ot order. Referring to the statements made that the Cretans prefer autonomy to annexation to Greece, the government of Greece suggests that they be allowed to choose their own government. Greece, the reply adds, is convinced that autonomy will not pacify Crectc, and that another chapter in the horrors of fanaticism will be added to the six periods of anarchy which have already decimated the island. The Greek government holds, that order in Crete would be immediately restored if the powers would have confidence in the Greek troops and permit them to join in the work of pacifying the island. CoMSTANTixoi'i.E, March 10. — The diplomats here have received the answer of' the porto to the collective note of the powers setting forth the desires of the powers regarding the granting of autonomy to ' Crete under the suzerainty of Turkey. The porte assents to the terms of the powers and says it hopes that there will be a definite understanding between itself and tho powers respecting the details of the autonomy to be granted. LONDON, March 0. — In the house of commons Sir Wm. Vernon Harcourt asked the government for a promise that the British forces should not be used against Greece before parliament had been consulted. Mr. Balfour, first lord of the treasury, declined to pledge the government to tho course suggested by Sir Wm. Vernon Harcourt, but said that they were acting with a full sense of their responsibility and in behalf of Cretan liberty and European peace. LONDON, March 10. — It is learned in ofllcial quarters that there is not the slightest chance that the powers will tolerate the presence of Greek troops in Canca. As soon as the powers have had time to exchange views, Greece will be notified of the measures decided on for the immediate enforcement of their decision. Negotiations will not last long. CANKA, March 11. — The insurgents shelled the town of Candarno «and the Turlcish troops were compelled to surrender. The insurgents took nil the arms and ammunition from the troops. The: powers then interfered and took the Turks to Canca. BKLOIIADK, Servia, March 11. — The en tire 'army reserve and both classes of the militia are called out iu detachments. It is given out as the reason that they are to undergo maneuvers in March smd April. ATHENS, March 13. — The general opinion here is that war with Turkey is unavoidable. Tlie gunboats Acteon and Ambracia, with tho gun vessel Aphroessia, have been ordered to blockade the Gulf of Arta, in order to prevent the lanrtinir of Turkish troops. It is believed that armed bauds that have been sent out by the National Lcngiu! to different points in Kpirus and Macedonia will give the signal for the stiug-gle, and the Greek army on the frontier will then proceed to an invasion of Turkish territory. CANEA, March 13, — Tho commanders of the Greek cruisers Alpbois nud Pin- ios are still in Cretan waters and in a difficult position, Their express orders are only to retire from Canea bay under protest, but on no account to leave Cretan witters. They arc ordered to "resist,to the death ony attack upon them, for the honor of tho Greek flag. and nation which reposes confidence in the sons of heroes." LONDON, March 15,— The latest advices indicate that there will be no war in the east, but that the powers will decide upon a pacific blockade of Greece aud that Greece will thus be compelled to yield.

One of these, according tc Mr. Hoar, was designed "to enable the senate to net on legislation when it desires, after reasonable debate.'' This most desirable result Mr. Hoai proposes to secure by an amendment wnich will enable any senator, after a bill or resolution lias been debated on* day. to demand a vote. Then if a majority of the senate so desire the votf may be ordered, but not until aftei the senator Shall have had opportunity to speak to the question for one hour, or so much thereof as he may wish to occupy. Inasmuch as there are ninety senators, or will be whet the body "is full, it would be seen there could be ninety hours of debate aftei every senator wished to avail himsell ot his opportunity under the rules. In practice, of course, only a small number of senators would wish to use their hour, and if this rule were adopted it would be possible for the senate to limit those well-nigh endless debates -which have so annoye'd the country at various times. Mr. Hoar's other amendment was one permitting the presiding officer to count r. quorom under certain circumstances. WEYLER IS ALARMED. NORtHWEST BLOCKAtJEtJ THE SNOW DRIFTS.
