SHERIDAN", Or., Sept 29. (Special.)
As an outgrowth of an encounter
between A. M. Fanning, Mayor of
Sheridan, and G. E. Gross, a contractor,
the Mayor haa been indicted on a
charge of carrying a concealed treapon,
with which Gross declares the Mayor
belabored him when the two met In
combat several days ago.
Out of the staging of a boxing bout

Timbers were borrowed from Mr.
Gross, the contractor, to be used In the

Mr. Gross went to the opera-house to

ever, he gathered up his property and
started to leave the building, when he
was met by the Mayor, who engaged
him in argument Mr. Gros3 con
tinued to the street where he was
building a concrete sidewalk. Here
the argument grew to conflict and the
contractor declares that the city ex

Mayor, whereupon the latter retal

ITALY, HOT WITH
No Delay Brooked;
TURKEY'S REQUEST IGNORED
40,000 Men to Be Landed at
Tripoli, Reputed Plan.
TWO NATIONS COMPARED
European Critics . Condemn Ottoman
Empire for Neglecting Navy In
vading Force Will Have Hard
Time in Africa.
LONDON, Sept 29. A atate of war
exists between Italy and Turkey and
hostilities have begun. No sooner had
the time limit fixed by the ultimatum
expired than, ignoring the Turkish con
ciliatory request for delay, Italy de
clared war. The Turkish representa
tives in Italy received their passports.
The Turkish commander at Tripoli
was asked to surrender the town, hut
declined, and the Italian forces imme
diately occupied Tripoli and Benghazi.
Apparently the Turks offered no re
sistance, but this is only an assump
tion, as immediately on landing the
Italians evidently seized the telegraph
A Constantinople dispatch makes no
mention of resistance and a mere pro
test by the Governor would be In line
with Turkey's announced policy.
The Turkish Cabinet resigned when
war was declared and a new ministry
was formed under Said Pasha, but re
taining the former able War Minister,
Mahmoud Shefket Pasha.
Turkey continues her efforts to se
cure Intervention by the powers. In
the meantime Italy is actively pursuing
hostilities. Italian battleships are re
ported to have appeared off Smyrna
and Salonika. - -.
Cruiser Lands Troop
An Italian cruiser landed troops at
Prevesa, after destroying a Turkish
torpedo boat destroyer, and the Italian
fleet has blockaded the Trlpolitan
-- There are unconfirmed reports that
Turkey intends to send an ultimatum to
Greece to abandon her claims on Crete
and is massing troops on the Thessa
The greatest activity ensued the
receipt of news that war had been de
clared and notification of a blockade
was sent out It is understood the vari
ous governments will receive the custo
mary neutrality notices and will devote
their diplomatio efforts to bring hostil
ities to an end and especially to avoid
ing complications in the Balkans.
According to Italian advices, the gov
ernment plans to land 40,000 men In
Tripoli by October 7. No bombardment
will be attempted unless the property
of Italians or other foreigners Is en
dangered. It is understood the Italian
ministers have elaborated a scheme for
the administration of Tripoli with the
Duke of the Abruzzl as first governor.
Among the first acts of the new govern
ment will be the abolition of many taxes
now imposed on the Tripolitans.
Vienna reports that Triopll has placed
no less than seven army corps on a war
footing and Is mobilizing not only to
wards the south, but also in the north,
reinforcing her army corps in Turin,
Milan and Verona.
A dispatch to the Daily News, from
Tripoli, describing the Italian demand
for the surrender of the town, says that
the governor promised a definite de
cision in a few hours. Thereupon the
Italian officer said six hours would be
allowed for non-combatants to quit the
town. The interview was conducted in
the most cordial terms.
Nations Are Compared.
The London papers, discussing respec
tive forces of the combatants, comment
on the weak condition to which Turkey
has been reduced by neglect of her
navy.. She controls a fine army, ap
proaching 1,000,000 men and 1600 guns,
but the great fighting machine la im
prisoned in Europe because Turkey Is
powerless against Italy's effective fleet
Professor Norton, of the American
archaeological mission, in a second in
terview, said the Italians' difficulties
will only begin when they have landed.
There are only three towns from the
whole coast worthy the attention of a
gunboat Tripoli, Benghazi and Derna.
There is no harbor and the ships must
anchor a mile from shore. The Invad
ing force must take with it food sup
plies, as It will get no food from the
hostile Arabs. ,
It w.'l be a matter of years, conclud
ed Professor Norton, for the Italians
to overcome the Turks.
A dispatch to the Times from Con
stantinople says that according to the
latest advices received by the admir
alty, the Ottoman fleet is making for
the Dardanelles with two Italian cruis
ers following on the port quarter. Tha
fleet Is expected to arrive at the Dar
danelles tomorrow morning. f
The Turkish government says tha
dispatch, has entire confidence In Its
ability to protect Italian subjects here
and at the principal ports from repri
sals on the part of the populace. But
the position of the Italian workmen
employed on the Taurus sections of the
Bagdad railway is regarded as less secure.
