in the Chanak region of Asiatic.
Turkey and for the suspension of
the activities of the Turkish irreg
ular forces in Thrace have been
issued by Mustapha Kemal Pasha,
the Turkish nationalist leader.
The Turkish nationalist authori

and' have requested the allied rilprh
commissioners to appoint dele

resented by Ishmet Pasha and pos
sibly by Hamid Bey. '
PARIS. Oct. 1. (By the Associat
ed Press.) The general feeling in
Paris tonfght was that the danger
point In the near east situation was
past. The withdrawal of the Turks
from Erenkeui and, as semi-offi-cially
reported, also from their posi
tions at Chanak, was accepted as
proof of the Angora government's
readiness to comply with the allied
desires. . "

While the cabinet members appear

withdrawn completely, th;. have
evacuated the heights of Eren Keul
and have desisted also from parad

such actions or attempt to enter the

likelihood that the British will
raise the questio nbefore entering

while General Harin-fton is making

is a most exacting and determined

Before Cries Bring Help.
Unrequited love and the marriage

postal employe. to sek
death by a leap from the Ford-street

Knox, wIiom relatives live in Min
neapolis, has been' a resident of
Portland for the last five years and
for two years has made his home
with G. Steiger,- 777 M.adison street.
Steiger said Knox received word
several days ago of the marriage at
Stockton, Cal., of his sweetheart.
Miss Hazel Colt. Knox became mel
ancholy. At about 8 o'clock Saturday nig'ht
he left the Steiger home without
telling anyone of his intention. At
about 7:10 o'clock Sunday morning
Steiger heard the' cries of a man
from the gulch beneath the bridge
and on investigating found Knox. A
hurried call was sent to the police.
Knox wa'a found to be badly injured.'
Investigation showed he had
leaped from the north approach of
the bridge and bad falle.n a distance
of about 45 feet, landing in a clump
of brush, whit-ri served to break his
fall. He called for help, but no one
responded. The injured man then
crawled a distance of about 200
feet and succeeded in drawing his
host's attention to his condition.
Knox would recover, physicians
said, but may be crippled for life.

In addition the carriers have re

new cars and locomotives and the

the first seven months of the cur

new freight cars totaled 95,195, as

t was Rear Admiral Charles E.
"-ark.' who guided the battleship
Oregon in its race against time on
a- voyage equal to half way around
the world without a single seriMis
mishap to men or machinery.
This remarkable race occurred
during the opening days of the
Spanish-American war in ' 1898.
Clark, then a captain, was 54 years
old. He left San Francisco March
19. Between him and his detina
tion were the continent of South
America, the gales and turbulent
waters ofithe straits of Magellan,
where a Spanish torpedo boat lurked
also,, and a fleet .of formidable
Spanish warships cruising in the
Caribbean sea. On the afternoon Of
the 67th day the Oregon steamed
into Jupiter inlet, on the coast of
Florida, unharmed and ready for
battle. , ,

probably will never be equalled it
probably never again will be at

moves the necessity. A modern bat
tleship could be transferred from
San Francisco to the . Florida coast

"Strategy as learned on the --hess
boardj is not a bad training as a pre

continued to outline Clark's charac
teristic determinative .. which was
noticeable, even while playing ohess,
until the appointment was won.
Rear Admiral Clark was born in
Vermont in 1843. At the age of 20
he had been ordered tp the west gulf
blockading squadron in the civil
war before he had finished his sec
ond year at Annapolis. . A year later
he was following Farragut over the
torpedo beds and past the forts in
the battle of Mobile bay.
Clark's naval career was varied.

of British Columbia in 1868 when
