HAS WORLD AGOG
PEACE CONFERENCE TODAY
Kemal Makes Conditions for
BOUILLON GIVES REPORT
General Harington and High
rjommissioners Are Met; Kem
alists Are Near Chanak.
CONSTANTINOPLE, Oct. 2. (By
th Associated Press.) The Kemal
ist proposals which will be laid
formally before the Mudania con
ference tomorrow are "discussable
but not acceptable." This was the
decision of the extraordinary ooun
cil which met at the British em
bassy this afternoon. It included
the allied high commissioners. Am
bassadors, generals and admirals.
M. Franklin Bouillon, the French
envoy, through whose efforts with
Kemal Pasha the conference was
made possible, expressed his confi
dent belief of the Associated Press
correspondent this evening that an
agreement would be reached tomor
row at Mudania.
"Kemal will make an even greater
effort for peace than 'he. has made
for war," he said.
Two llueMtions Important.
Two of the most important ques
tions to be discussed at the confer
ence will be demarcation of a new
neutral zone on the Asiatic shores
of the Dardanelles and Ismld, and
the evacuation of Thrace.
The allies hold that Kemal's de
mands, as outlined by M. Franklin
Bouillon, are of such a nature that
the Angora assembly would there
after be in a position to reject the
allied note. Kemal Pasha insisted
on settlement of all military ques
tions before replying to the allied
proposals. He and four of the
ministers at Smyrna "accepted the
allied npte in principle, but the
attitude of the Angora assembly
was not made known.
Neutral Zone Xot Mentioned.
The allies feel that Kemal's de
mands could have ben made with
better grace if the allied note had
been fully indorsed by his govern
ment. Kemals armistice terms
make no reference to a neutral
zone or neutrality of the straits,
but the opinion of the allied coun
cil was that the most important
question to be discussed tomorrow
would be the establishment of a
provisional neutral line at Chanak,
as suggested by General Haring
ton's latest note to the Turkish
It must be remembered that the
Mudania conference is military, not
political, but the evacuation of
Thrace is largely under the latter
category and is hardly considered a
matter to be decided upon by the
allied generals alone.
Session to Be Ashore.
It was decided tonight that the
armistice conference must take
place ashore at Mudania, instead of
on one of the allied ships. This
decision was reached principally
because the allies were unable to
agree even on such a minor ques
tion as to which should have the
honor of acting as host of the con
ference. Each apparently feared that the
holding of the conference aboard
one of the others' ships would give
that nation a distinct advantage in
the session and in the report of
that session which would reach
the outside world.
Delegates Go to Mudania.
Hammid Bey, representing the
Angora government, accompanied
by M. Franklin-Bouillon, the French
envoy, will leave tomorrow morn
ing for Mudania on the cruiser Metz.
General Mombelli, who will repre
sent Italy at the conference, will
proceed on tne Victor Emmanuel;
General Sharpie, for France, on the
Jean Bart, and General Harington
on the Iron Duke.
The conference will begin at 1
o'clock. Newspaper correspondents
will be excluded from the meeting.
Daily communiques will be issued
on the results of the conference and
transmitted by wireless to Con
stantinople. Change Cannes Comment.
General Harington's consenting to
meet Ismet Pasha, instead of Mus
tapha Kemal has. caused much com
ment. There is a vast difference in
their ranks. General Harington be
ing commander-in-chief of the allied
forces, while Ismet Is only second
in command of the nationalist army.
It was learned that M. Franklin
Bouillon had obtained Kemal's
pledge to suspend military move
ments during the armistice confer
ence, provided the allies accept the

it the niembers of the crew saw
one of the men still clinging to it,
but before they could reach him
he had sunk. Neither of the bodies
had been recovered late today, and
doubt was expressed that they will
be found at all unless they are
washed up on the beach.
Even when the .. two fishermen

BORGIA RINGJS POISON
Serious Injury to Curio Collector
Laid to Serpent.
ZURICH, Oct. 2. (By the Asso

be the poison of the 15th-century
Borgias has been transmitted to a
curio collector here with serious ef
fect. The collector recently bought .
a ring in Turin, Italy, made in the
form of a serpent and guaranteed to
be of the Borgia period. The buyer
wore the ring and returning here
found that his ring finger and fore
arm had swelled. A doctor was
called and declared that poisoning
was due to the ring.
Investigation proved that there
was a email hole under the serpent's
head and from this the poison was
emitted, but time had weakened its

NEW YORK, Oct. 2. Je fast
freight train stopped in Newark,
N. X, at dusk today and from one
of Its car doors jumped a lengthy,
sunburned youth, known down in
a far' hot corner of Texas as "Long
Jim" Baker, star hurler of a semi
professional team named after a
grocer for advertising purposes.
Jim came to New York on a tube
train and found a cheap hotel.
"Who's going to pitch the fust
game?" he asked.
"Joe Bush for the' Yankees and
little Archie Nehf, the left-handed
Giant," answered . an individual
whose face was buried in a sporting

"Wa'al," drawled Jim, "I been
expecting for some time that some
of these here days I'd be a-pitchin'
a world series game myself, so I
tho't I'd come up to see what
they're like, get used to the crowds
of folks and all that stuff. Ain't
never seed one afore."
At about the same time Jim left
his freight, and for some hours
previously during the day, fast
passenger train's were arriving at
their New York terminals, bring
ing crowds of minor and major
league players, managers and of
ficials and newspaper men and a
fair-sized bunch ' of fans. -
It probably is true that the sec

when the series has for its prin
cipals two teams of the same city,
but a baseball fan is like a little
boy when his sister's beau is call

desire to take a peek.
Interest World-Wide. -
And, too, a funny thing about the
world's series is why they call it
that. The contesting teams always
are American teams and one could
hardly conceive of interest in the

Whole Section of County
Mount Victory Is Scoured
With Renewed Energy.? o .
MOUNT VICTORT, O., Oct. 3.
Posses of" farmers were ' scouring
this entire section of the county
with renewed energy tonight for
two lions, reported to have been
seen several times near Mount Vic
tory. An all-day search proved
futile and farmers were under the
impression that the jungle beasts
were confining their activities to
the night time. ,
The animals were first seen about
a week ago by William Wilkerson.
Since then they have been reported
am having been seen by several
other persons. Interest reached a
high pitch today, when a railroad
enginer and fireman reported that
they saw the lions last night.
"The night- was' clear and there
was no mistake about it," said Ben
F. Gregory of Bellefontaine, engi
neer. "They were snooping nere ana
there, and when we got within close
range both made a beeline for a
Woods near by."
His fireman, Arthur Stauffer of
Indianapolis, confirmed the state

stock has been kiired and this was
attributed to dogs. Now the kill

the beasts, which are thought to
have escaped from a circus.
