the Tchatalja lines for a resumption of
the war should the negotiations fall.

Vienna Denies Preparations.
The official statements issued at Vi

preparations. Letters from Vienna
have reached London, however, con-:
firming reports that the strength of six
army corps Is being increased and that
a large number of reservists have been
called out. -
As the war approaches a conclusion,
public opinion in Bucharest, according
to the correspondent of the Standard, is
getting more excited with reference to
safeguarding Roumanian interests.
Masses were held Sunday to protest
against the reported Greek persecution
of the Kutxovlacs in Macedonia. The
leaders of this race strongly object to
the division of Macedonia between
Greece. Bulgaria and Servia, and they
fear their own nationality would be
squeezed out. Roumania Intends to se
cure guarantees against this.
Roumania to Adjust Claims.
Another question relates to readjust
ment of the Roumanian-Bulgarian fron
tier. It is now said Roumania is not
claiming Ruschuk and Varna, as this
would add a large Bulgarian population
to Roumania, but only Sllistria and the

older Dartmouth men finally prevailed,

thorities had been notified and were
on the way, the students dispersed,

Regarding that question ana amen

Professor McCarthy, with other "Pro

Plea for Ballot.
CHILD WELFARE AT STAKE
Votes for Women, She Says, Will
Mean Better Homes -Miss Jane
Addams Says Men Not Com
petent to Settle Vice Issues.
PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 24. (Special.)
With bowed heads and led in prayer
by Bishop Rhlnelander of the Protes
tant Episcopal diocese of Pennsylvania,
more than 500 delegates to the Na
tional Woman Suffrage convention
gave thanks today to the Almighty for
their recent victories In Arizona, Kan
sas, Michigan and Oregon.
The meeting held in the Metropoli
tan Opera-House was In the nature of
a Jubilee. Thousands who were unable
to gain admittance attended overflow
meetings which prominent suffragists
Miss Julia Lathrop and Miss Jane
Addams were the principal speakers.
Miss Addams' subject was "The Com
munion of the Ballot" and Miss La
throp delivered an address on "Woman
Suffrage and Child Welfare." Dr. Anna
Shaw presided. Dr. W. E. Eurghart
Dubols spoke on "The Democracy of
Sex and Color."
Plea Made for Suffrage.
Miss Lathrop and Miss Addams di
rected their arguments to show that
the fields of labor in which they are
engaged demand that votes should be
granted women that they may solve
problems which they understand bet
ter than men and which properly be
long to them.
"My purpose Is to show woman suf
frage Is a natural and Inevitable step
In the march of society forward," said
Miss Lathrop who, as head of the newly
created child's bureau In the Depart
ment of Commerce and Labor was in
troduced as the only woman chief of
bureau in the Federal service.
"I intend to show that Instead of
being Incompatible with child welfaie
it leads toward it and it is. Indeed, the
next great service to be rendered for
the welfare and ennoblement of the
"A little more than one-third of all
the people In this country something
over 29.500,000 are children under the
age of 15, still In a state of tutelage
and it Is of unbounded Importance that
nothing be done by the rest of us which
would Injure this budding growth."
Advancement of Women Shown.
Miss Lathrop said It was a great
revolution when a religion was
established which allowed a woman to
have a soul. Out of the Africa of to
day she brought woman In her primi
tive condition to compare her with the
modern American woman of the most
advanced type of suffragist to ack
whether progress has rendered woman
less womanly, or has taken her out
of the sphero of home life or destroyed
her usefulness to her family.
"Suffrage for woman Is not the finnl
word in human freedom, but It is the
next step in the onward march," ps
said. "This new century has boon
called 'The Century of the child' and
we may well believe that It will see a
new sense of Justice toward tho child.
"It Is our fundamentaLiulsm In the
Western world that ttie state of wo
man connotes the state of civilization,
and it is a waste of words to endeavor
to point out that the Influence of wo
men in the Western world, with its
comparative freedom and openness, is
more wholesome for the rational
progress of the race than is her seclu
sion in the Orient."
Reforms Are Cited.
Miss Lathrop quoted from history to
show that the extension of the suf
frage to men has always brought a
larger expression In laws serviceable to
the whole people. Reviewing the
objections to the old system of appren
ticeship, which took the youth from
home surrounoings during the years
when he most needed them, Mlsa
Lathrop asserted that no such practice
will be possible now-a-days.
"We find it Intolerable that children
should be removed from their parents
because of poverty," continued Mit-s
Lathrop, "and that women should work
when, to do so, means to leave their
children neglected and wretched. It is
true we do not know how to deal with
this problem effectively. The sacred
ness of the family and Its unspeakable
value to the growing generations Is to
gain in the 20th century a richerVeall-
zatlon and of greater effectiveness.
There has never been a time when a
majority of women have been such
competent mothers as at present.
"Women are sharers If not actual
leaders now in all social work," said
Miss Lathrop. "Warrantable work can
not content itself with building asylums
and giving alms."
Women Not Influenced.
Jn discussing the statement that wo
men will vote as told to by men Ht
their homes. Miss Lathrop declared It
a reproach. "Women who work, and
