CONSTANTINOPLE, Oct. 3. (By
the Associated Press.) -The prelim

of peace in the near east began at
Mudanla today with the allies gen
erals and Ismet Pasha, representing
the Turkish nationalists, present.
The meeting: was callecl to order at
3 o'clock in the afternoon, but was
shortly adjourned to Wednesday to
permit the attendance of the Greek
The two most important questions
to be taken up were the demarcation
of a neutral sfone on the Asiatic
side of the Dardanelles and the
evacuation of Thrace.
Newspaper correspondents have
been excluded from the sessions, ,
daily communiques on progress
having been promised.
Ureek Delegate Arrive.
General Mazarakis and Colonel
Sarriyannis, .who were yesterday
appointed by the Greek cabinet to
act in the Mudania conference on
behalf of Greece, arrived at Mudanla
on a Greek destroyer and will take
their places at the conference table
General Harington, commander-in-chief
o the allied forces, will
deal with the military questions in
the negotiations as he deems best,
a free hand having been given him
by his government in these matters.
Subjects of a political or economic
nature will be referred to the allied
high commissioners who will com
municate with their governments.
The commissioners will be in con
tinuous contact with Mudanla by
Control of tireekH Urged.
The allied ministers in Constan
tinople were understood to have
drawn the attention' of the Greek
government to the necessity of
keeping th,e Greek troops in Thrace
under control so as to avoid the
possibility of a conflict.
This was due to representations
of the Angora government that the
Mohammedan population in Thrace
were suffering exactions at the
hands of the Greeks, and that the
Greek troops were in a dangerous
state of unrest.
Up to tonight the Turks had made
no real preparations for their with
drawal from the neutral zone, and,
according to an official report, their

Wasco Circuit Court Rules That
to Send Man to Prison Would
Be Travesty on Justice.
THE DALLES, Or., Oct. 3. (Spe
cial.) All precedent in the history
of the Wasco county circuit court
vas broken when Judge Wilson this
morning freed Columbia Dick, an
Indian, the confessed slayer of a fel
low . tribesman, Jim Starr. - Alto
gether three Indians were involved
lb the killing, accordlng'to the tes
timony of witnesses at a prelimi
nary hearing. George Billie and
William George were tried on a
charge of manslaughter and acquit
ted by Wasco county Juries. Colum
bia Jack pleaded guilty to the
charge, and was to have been sen
tenced upon the completion of the
trials of his associates.
"It would be a travesty on justice
for me to send this man to the peni
tentiary with others at large who
are more responsible than he for
the crime that was committed,
Judge Wilson declared.
"While he may have been at the
scene of the murder and may. have
bad something to do with it, I would
never feel at ease if I sent this man
to prison. While I recognize that
rhls man has entered a plea of
KUilty," the Judge continued, "it has
been very evident to the court that
there was pressure behind his plea."

Presence of Warships at Mudania
MUDANIA, Oct. 3. (Bythe Asso

stranger setting for a conference
of world powers than this little
village on the southern shore of
the Sea of Marmora. Even the
presence of the great warships of
England, France and Italy seemed
incongruous in the tiny cove belted
with rocks and mud which is Mu
dania's harbor, for their only neigh
bors were a few scattered fishing
boats and nondescript barges.

NEW YORK, Oct. 8. An over
whelming sentiment favoring Amer
ica's abandonment of her policy of
isolation from European affairs and
the substitution of a policy which
might even Involve partial cancella
tion of the allied war debt today
swept through the convention of
the American Bankers' association.
The subject was broached by
Thomas W. Lamont, associate of J.
Pierpont Morgan, whose plea in be
half of American "unselfishness"
turned the convention into an up
roar as the 10,000 delegates, repre
senting 23,000 banks in the United
States, voiced their approval.
The movement gained momentum
when Mr. Lamont'a plea was echoed
by Thomas B. McAdams, president
of the bankers' national organiza
tion; Myron T. Herrick, United
States ambassador to France, and
other nationally known figures.
Great Surprise Expressed.
Financial leaders, who asserted
that until recently the question of
debt cancellation had brought pro
tests from small and large bankers
throughout the country, expressed
great surprise at the changed atti
tude evidenced today. A year ago,
they pointed out, a proposal similar
to that cautiously advanced by Mr.
Lamont was emphatically turned
down by the association.
Formal action on the question of
European debts to this government
or the formulation of a definite
programme of new loans and trade
contracts Is not expected of this
convention, however. Leaders de
clared they were satisfied with the
evidence that bankers of the coun
try are amenable to America's more
active participation in foreign finan
cial stablization and will depend
upon the early development of a
public opinion which will justify
the administration in making over
tures to the foreign nations con
cerning the possibility of a basis
for readjustment settlement.
The discussion will be resumed

mountains, has been purchased Dy
The Oregontan and will be installed
immediately. The Installation of
the 500-watt set, built by the West
ern Electric company, is of moment
to thousands of radio fans as it
will afford a service heretofore un
paralleled on the Pacific coast.
P.' H. Evans of the engineering
department of the Western Elec
tric company, and A. H. McMillan,
northwest radio specialist of the
same company, are now in the city
for the purpose of making a sur
vey of the station and preparing for
the Installation. Mr. Evans was
dispatched from New York city for
the express purpose of giving ex
pert advice respecting the new
station and its Intricate equipment.
The normal range of the great set
will be 1500 miles, though identical
sets have been heard more than 3500
miiaa. Broadcasting from such
equipment, at the station of the
Western Electric building in New
York, was clearly heard 1000 miles
at sea on the Paeific and duly

up by radio fans of the Pacific

Dispatch recently installed a set of
this type and within a week had re

ports from Oregon.
