the side of our enemies, we are pre
pared to sfive our friends in the Bal
kans all the support in our power, in
a manner that would be most welcome
to them, in concert with our allies,
without reserve and without qualifica

by Sir Edward Grey, the British For
eign Secretary, in the House of Com
mons this afternoon.
Premier Asquith, who also addressed
the House, made an urgent appeal to
all his hearers to abstain from raising
questions concerning recruiting for the

history of the war," he said. "We are
watching with most intense sympathy

Old Friendship Kmphanixed.
The speeches of Premier Asquith and
Foreign Secretary Grey were followed
with the closest attention, as they dealt
with phases of the war situation which
are of particular interest in England
at the present. Secretary Grey em
phasized the long standing friendship
between Great Britain and Bulgaria
"Our official information from the
Bulgarian government is that they
have taken up a position of armed neu
trality to defend their rights and in
dependence and that they have no a.g
jrressive intentions whatever against
their Balkan neighbors. Not only is
there no hostility in this country to
Bulgaria, but there is traditional warm
feeling of sympathy with the Bulgarian
people. As long, therefore, as Bulgaria
does not side with the enemies of Great
Britain or her allies, there can be no
question of using British influence or
forces in any sense hostile to Bulga

"We are, of course, in consultation
with our allies on the situation and I
believe the view I express is theirs
also: our policy being so secure an
agreement in respect to the Balkan
states, which will insure to each of
them, not only independence, but a
"To secure this agreement." the For
eign Secretary continued, "we recog
nized that the legitimate aspirations of
the Balkan states must find satisfac
tion. The policy of Germany, on the
other hand, has been to create for her
own purposes disunion and war among
the Balkan states.
"Turkey, whose interests would have
been preserved if she had remained
neutral, has been gratuitously forced
by Germany into this war and is now
being subordinated in order to realize
Germany's aspirations and influence
from Berlin to Bagdad.
"In the same way it would naturally
be Germany's policy so to use any of
the Balkan states, with the inevitable
result that that state eventually would
be subordinated to her and that though
territorial gains might be promised she
would lose her independence.
"This is directly contrary to the
policy of the allies, which is to further
the national aspirations of the Balkan
states, without sacrificing the inde
pendence of any of them."

LONDON. Sept. 2S. -The silence of the
Admiralty in regard to the work of
British submarines in the Baltic was
explained in the House of Commons to
day by Thomas MacNamara, financial
secretary of the Admiralty. Mr. Mac
Namara said, in response to a ques

the orders of the Russian commander-in-chief.
"The House will realize that much
gallant and successful work is being
done b v these vessels," Mr. MacNamara
naid "but the responsibility of deciding
what shall be made public of their
proceedings in the Baltic must rest
with the Knssian Admiralty.

Walter Johnson, only witness of the

of his tragic death. Mr: Minto was
killed along the main line of the South

had gone about 200 yards when we
saw Hooker coming up the track, run

jumped into the brush and got up
against the fence and prepared to draw
a bead on him when he got opposite.
I meant to shoot. 1 called to an escaped
convict once to halt and got shot.

"When I saw Hooker coming I called
to Marry, who was behind me, to get
under rover with me, and thought he
did. But he evidently went beyond
me and crouched just in the edge of
the brush. Suddenly I saw the man on
the track halt slightly. Harry had
stepped right out into the open in the
moonlight. As Hooker slowed up I
heard Harry say 'you halt.' Immedi
ately after there were two shots almost
together; they were so close I couldn't
tell, but I think the convict shot first.
He started to run then, and I emptied
my revolver, but it was through the
brush and he was running away from
me. I expected to hear Harry shoot
again, too, as he had fired only one
barrel of a double-barreled shotgun. I
didn't know he was down until I ran
around the brush and found him on the
ground. He was dead."
The bullet struck Minto just below
the right eye and ranged downward,
passing out through the vertebrae and
piercing hte spinal cord. He died in
stantly. Minto was about 10 feet away
from the edge of the right of way and
about 40 feet from Hooker, in the cen
ter of the track. The railroad grade
there is four feet above the ground.
Minto evidently was killed by a chance
shot, as Hooker could not have had
time for a dleiberate aim. Minto's body
was brought ot Albany and taken from
here to Salem early this morning.
