The constitutionalists haro no wish
to oppose ecclesiastical authority nor
to undertake the tasks of progress
without the support of a majority of
the wise men, and if they strongly op-1
pose the abdication of the sultan it
would hardly be insisted upon at pres
ent, although this Is' regarded as the
,Blmplest course to avoid further com
plications with Abdul Hamld.
Mehemmed nectmd EfTendl, the heir
apparent to the throne, who would
probably be selected for the accession,
has lived practically a prisoner for
twenty-five years in the largo palace
nnd gardens, not far from the Yildlz
Since the July revolution, however,
ho has often been in the streets of
Constantinople, looking from the car
riage windows upon the scenes In the
thoroughfares, which must have been
strangely interesting to him.
Mehammed Recliad Is gray haired
and not very strong, to judge from his
appearance. He Is Rlxty-flvo years of
age and well educated, although Inex
perienced in the affairs of the world.
The final net in the siege of the Yil
dlz occurred when General Schefket,
commander of the constitutionalists,
overawed the Albanians into surren
der. This force, which was composed
of 200 men, was stationed in the im
The Albanians had persistently re
fused to 'lay down their nrms. Oen
ornl Schefket sent up a strong body of
Macedonians, and six field pieces were
placed In n prominent position above
the palace. Other guns were disposed
on the neighboring heights, while
' troops commanded all the approaches.
The red flag continued, however, to
fly defiantly until 2 o'clock, when the
watchers saw It drooping slowly down
the flagpole, making place for the
white token of surrender.
A few minutes later a crowd of fugi
tives was seen pouring down the
dusty road leading to Beshlmtash,
where they wero fastened together
with ropes and conducted under n mil
itary escort to the headquarters of the
commission f Inquiry.
The prisoners Included domestics,
unuchs, pages, secretaries nnd practi
cally the entire male staff of the pal
ace as well as the famous fuslleers,
the protegees of the sultan. Their
comtnandor was arrested in dlsgulso
at Qalata and severely handled.

PRESIDENT'S WIFE IN GALLERY
Steel Trust's Immense Profits and
the Automobiles and Extrava
gances of Magnates Used
Vuslilngton, April 27. Denouncing
the principle of a protective tariff as
unfair In taking money from one man
to give it to another In order to en
courage him in the pursuit of nn
otherwise unprofitable business, Sena
tor Bailey of Texas got Into a warm
dispute with Senator Aldrich of Rhode
Island as to his Income tax amend
ment to the tariff bill.
Both floor nnd galleries were crowd
ed, and Sirs. Tnft, wife of the presi
dent, occupied a seat In the president's
Mr. Bailey got Into trouble with Mr.
Aldrich with regard to the hitter's ut
terance In the senate In 1804 that the
Income tax was supported by the So
cialist, Populist and Democratic par
ties. Mr. Bailey said that Mr. Tnft
now favored an income tax and asked
Mr. Aldrich if he considered the presi
dent a Socialist, Populist or Demo
crat. Mr. Aldrich replied that bis
statement was true nt the time it was
Mr. Bailey repeated his statement that
the rates of the pending bill could be
reduced 83 1-3 per cent without great
ly Increasing the bulk of Importations,
nlthough the decrease would diminish
the price of manufactured articles to
the American consumer.
"Does the senator think that the
American manufacturer makpsji ,protlt
of U3 i-'3per centV" Inquired Mr. Aid
rich. Mr. Bailey suggested thnt the United
States Steel corporation, with a capi
tal of $350,000,000, had increased its
capitalization to $1,000,000,000 nnd
makes 7 per cent on the larger sum.
"Obviously." he said, "the steel cor
poration could reduce Its profit 33 1-3
per cent nnd still make more than a
legitimate profit upon a fair valuation
of Its property."
Mr. Aldrich asked whether the sena
tor from Texas believed the other cor
porations could make a profit if the
prices were reduced 33 1-3 per cent.
"If L nm permitted to Judge by the
size nnd equipment of their nutomo
blles and the size nnd equipment of
their yachts and by other extrava
gances they flaunt in the faces of the
American consumers, I say yes," re
plied Mr. Bailey. "They might not be
able to go to Europe every summer
and might find It necessary to reduce
their expenditures, but the American
people would be better off for that."
"Does the senator think the uvernge
Industries make a profit of more than
33 1-3 per cent annually and regulnr
lyV" inquired Mr. Aldrich.
Mr. Bailey explained that a 33 1-3
per cent reduction In the rates of duty
would not be equivalent to a 33 1-3
reduction In profit.
Mr. Bailey said that no "system of
taxation over devised has been so just,
so equul nnd so proper as an Income
"How did the senator arrive at the
Income of $5,000 as the proper one to
tax?" asked Mr. Aldrich. "Instead of
$4,000 or $3,000 or $2,000?"
Mr. Bailey replied that he had fixed
that figure because be had assumed
that Incomes of $5,000 are spent upon
living expenses, so that the recipient
would be compelled to pay limit her
than tho Income tax at the custom
house on everything purchnsed, and
ns the one tax had nlreudy been paid,
exemption from the Incomo tnx seem
ed justified. But, more than that, he
said, ho wished to levy tho tax upon
those best nble to pay it.
Mr. Aldrich said that laborers
abroad received $50 to $400 a year,
wlille American labor Ip paid about
$700 a year. His plan, ho said, would
bo to reduce tho protection thnt Is be
ing given this American labor over the
foreign cheap labor.
"I would like," said Mr. Bailey nmld
applause from tho galleries, "to make
It impossible for that cheap labor to
come here at all."
A substitute for the maximum and
minimum fenture "of tho Payno bill
has been worked out by Chairman
Aldrich and approved by the Itcpub
llcan members nfter having been per
fected with the aid of Senators Boot
and Curtis, Tho amendment provides
for tho following:
Duties will be collected on all arti
cles Imported from foreign countries
at the rates named In tho senate bill
and 25 por cent additional from coun
tries which assess against goods from
this country rates which are '.'unequal
and unreclprocal." Tho established
rates will continue In effect until
March 31, 1010 nnd thereafter unless
tho president by proclamation puts
into effect the additional rate of 25
per cent of the established rate. This
will be done only upon tho president
receiving satisfactory evidence that a
foreign country Is discriminating
against the United States.

ceeded In raising the Russian ships

Admiral IJIchl replied: "We raised
the sunken battleships nnd cruisers at
Port Arthur and Chemulpo without
any great difficulty. We found that
those at Port Arthur were not sunk
by the mortar fire directed upon them
from 203 Meter hill. None of the

although the superstructure and gun
mountings were badly shattered. The

bring most alarming accounts of the
situation there, where 0,000 Armenian
Christians lire beleaguered by 00,000
The besieged nre half starving, nnd
the conditions within the walls of tho
city are pitiful.
The commanders of the British lind
other warships at this port have had
under consideration the lauding of n
force to relieve tho besieged town,
which Is within one dny's mnrch of
Alexnndrettn. but they finally decided
that this was wholly impracticable, as
they had no right to Interfere in a
purely Internal affair, and the govern
or declined to give ills permission to
the lnndlug of nn nrmed force.
If relieving forces were sent out In
opposition to the governor's wishes It
was recognized that such on expedi
tion would be equivalent to n declara
tion of war, and, lu nddltlon, the lar
gest commands thnt the warships could
muster would stand in grcnt danger
of being overwhelmed If they nt
tenipted to force their wny against
such Immense odds.
The town of Hadjln, nbout 100 miles
to the north of Alexnndrettn, where
the residents havo withstood the as
saults of the fnnatlcs for the past
week. Is in flames. At this place there
are ffWAmerlcan women missionaries.
Laiakla, in Syria, has been relieved,
thanks to the unceasing efforts of the
American consul general at Beirut,
Gabriel B. Itavndal, who secured the
co-operation of the French cruiser
Jules Ferry. Thousands of refugees
have been pouring Into I.atakta, and
the presence of the French wnrshlp
there will have much influence in con
trolling the situation.
The refugees nre mostly women nnd
children, many of the mnle members
of itho families having been killed.
The consul general has nlso succeeded
in Inducing the locnl authorities to
take measures for the relief of the
people, and they nre responding sym
pathetically and energetically.
Urgent commands have been sent to
the locnl governors of the disturbed
Syrian districts by the minister of the
Interior to restore order. The minis
ter notified the governors that he
would hold them personally .responsi

The reason that the stars In the
Milky Way seem so close together Is
because we look at them edgewise.
They are really not closer together
than In other parts of the heavens,
but there are, Indeed, billions of them, v
and most of them are supposed to be
surrounded by planets. Their color
depends on their degree of heat Very
hot stars are blue, but there are also
red and green and pale yellow ones.
The real color of our sun, they tell
us, Is blue, Its rod and yellow hue
being due toour atmosphere. '
