CURTAIN FALLS ON BALKAN WAR
Ptace Negotiations Will Go Along
Rapidly Now and It Is Expected But
Little Friction Will Develop,
Greece has named her delegates to
the London peace conference and
there comes word from Constantlnop'e
that she has signed the arinl.stlce.
Though this latter 'report has not
been verified the G-;ek guns seemed
to have been silenced and with the
end of the fighting on the Aegean
Inlands the curtain is finally dropped
on the war In the Balkans.
I here now seems to be every
reason to believe that the peace
negotiations here will be hurried and
that the Balkan trouble will no longer
be a menace to Europe's peace.
Servla It Is thought has come down
a little from her h'h horse. A dl
patch from Sofia says It Is learned
that Bulgaria will demand that her
frontier shall extend from Mlilla on
the Black sea on tiie north through
Scutari and Tehorlu to tho gulf of
Banns on the south.
A Vienna dispatch to the London
Daily Telegraph from its corre
spondent says: -,
'The Austrian -ment Is look
ing forward with ci, . to the end
of the peace negotiations In the be.
lief, which I am trustworthily In
formed is Justified, that her demands
will be satisfied.
'There Is no reason, however, why
the negotiations should not he brief.
Bulgaria and Turkey are already as
one and when peace is concluded they
will be st III closer together. The treat
ment of Alhaniu is the most likely
matter to occupy the time In the
"Servia Is sure to raise the question
ftf Duraz.o and Alessio, but Turkey,
knowing that whatever happens Al
bania will never again be a part of the
Turkish empire, will probably not
raise a dispute over any claims put
forth for any portions thereof. Tur
key knows also that the final arrange
ments for Albania will not be for the
Balkan allies but for the powers."
A Belgrade dispatch to the London
Telegraph says that the Austro-Hun-garian
authorities have stopped at
Flume the steamer Hegedisch, with n
cargo of sea tons of flour, destined
for the Servian army at Durazzo.
It is announced that Austria intends
to confiscate the flour for the use of
her own army, thus creating a sltua-
Ion similar to that brought about by
the stoppage by Turkey of Servian
Another Belgrade dispatch says
there Is considerable anxiety over the
health of King Peter.

"If I did It, I didn't remember;
must have been drunk."
This was Edward Exler's answer to

Them Go Unpunished.
In the name of the state of South
Carolina. Governor Biease served
notice on the governors' conference at
Richmond, Va., that lynchers of negro
assailants of white women in his state
would go unpunished.
I have said all over the state of
South Carolina, and I say It again," he
declared, "thnt I never will order out
the militia to shoot down their neigh

commits the nameless crime against

"Therefore, In South Carolina let It
be understood that when a negro at

Is that they get the right man and
they who get him will neither need

UPHOLDS "DOLLAR DIPLOMACY
In Second Message the Prealdent Sayi
Business Is Fine Over Country;
Leaves Tariff Problem to Wllso
In a message sent to congress Presi
dent Taft calls upon the national legi
lators and the entire country to tak
a more modern, liberal view of th
position of the United States among
world powers and to grasp more ful
the great changes that have take
place in the foreign relations of this
The president's message Is one of
the most complete expositions of the
foreign policies of the United States
that has appeared in any presidential
document In recent years. The ac
complishments of the legal adminis
tration In the field of diplomacy are
reviewed and the reasoning upon
which the present policies are based
is fully explained
He foresees the need of a broader
American diplomacy than that of th
past and appeals to the country'to pre
pare Itself for the larger part it Is to
play on the world's stage.
The keynote of the administration
foreign policy has been "dollar diplo
macy" or, as the president expressed
It, an endeavor to make America
diplomacy "respond to modern Ideas
of commercial intercourse," and "di
rerted to the increase of America
trade" in the light of this policy af
fairs in Central America and the far
east are described fully.
The senate through Its failure to
permit the administration to len
financial aid to Nicaragua Is charged
by the president with- responsibility
for the disastrous revolution in Nica
ragua last summer.
President Taft urges, as did Secre
tary of State Knox last winter, that
legislation be enacted to enable the
administration to meet fully the vary
ing degrees of discriminatory treat
ment which American commerce stilt
Among other things advocated in
the message are:
Government owned legation build
Ings in all foreign countries.
A better basis for salary appropria
tions for foreign service.
Laws to protect the finances of
South and Central American republics.
Amendment of tho maximum and
minimum tariff planks to provide more
effective means of meeting discrim
lnation against American Imports.
Establishment of a merchant marine
and proper credit extension to Amerl
cans in foreign countries.
In his second message to congress
Air. Taft says that the business of
the country is now on a sound basis
and could hardly be better. The con
dition of the treasury Is declared to
be very satisfactory. The president
pleads for the immediate passage of
a currency reform measure along the
lines of the Aldrieh plan.
The tariff the president leaves to the
Democrats, saying that it is needless
for him to offer arguments favoring
a protective tariff.
He urges appropriations for three
new battleships and thinks a mistake
was made when congress provided for
only one at the last session. Continued
supervision over Porto Rico and the
Philippines is strongly recommended
Congress is advised to reorganize the
army and provide for a greater re
serve during times of peace.
