CONSTANTINOPLE, Nov. 5.
(By theN Associated Press.) An
allied extraordinary council de
cided tonight to refuse categori
cally the nationalist demand for the
allied evacuation of Constantinople.
CONSTANTINOPLE, Nov. 5.
(By the Associated Press.) The
nationalist government has seized
control of Constantinople, Rafet
Pasha has been made the new gov
ernor and Hamid Bey, the repre
sentative of the Angora govern
ment, has ordered the allied troops
out. In a note to the entente he
has demanded evacuation of the
The Turks have torn up the.
Mudania armistice convention and
have begun advancing into the
Chanak area, occupied by the
British, and other neutral zones.
Since noon Saturday, the na
tionalist administration is declared
to have been established and in
celebration of this masses of ex
cited Turks have been engaged in
( Police Forced to Fire.
Students marched against the
palace and engaged in such mani
festations that it became neces
sary for the allied police to fire
on them, several of the Turks be
ing killed or wounded.
The Christians in the Stamboul
quarter throughout Saturday night
were seeking shelter and protec
tion from what they plainly feared
a Turkish massacre.
Today, however, the government
authorities issued orders that all
disturbances should be rigorously
put down. The allied high com
missioners accepted the new re
gime and there was nothing left
for the sultan's ministry but resig
nation. Archives' Transfer Ordered.
Tewfik Pasha, the grand vizier,
realizing that his pwer had disap
peared, dispatched messages to the
representatives of the sublime
porte in the various capitols to
transfer their archives to the rep
resentatives of the Angora gov
ernment. Tiere seemed danger for a time
that the radical forces would gain
the upper hand. The sultan was
denounced, together with mon
archy, and Mustapha Kemal Pasha
was acclaimed as "our president."
It became necessary to throw
" guards of troops around the sul
tan's palace within which Moham
med VI, now cajiph only, is spend
ing fearful hours.
Mohammed VI has given no evi
dence of conforming to the deter
mination of the new government
to rid Turkey of the high office of
sultan, but the quickly developing
popular movement vauy soon com
pel him to accept the inevitable.
New Sprung Dramatically.
Eafet Pasha sprang the news of
the change in government in a
dramatic fashion on the allied generals.-
The generals had sum
moned Rafet to discuss the ques
tion of the admission of Kemalist
gendarmes to the Gallipoli and
Chanak sections. At the termina
tion of the discussion, Rafet, by
way of an afterthought, broke the
startling news like' this:
"I must inform your excellencies

Yards of Delaware & Hudson ,
Railroad at Daybreak.
(By Chicago Tribune Leased Wire.)
SCRANTON, Pa., Nov. 5. Angered
by the failure of the federal state
fuel commissions to furnish them
coal, more than 2000 citizens o
Olypliant, near here, marched to the
yards of the Delaware & Hudson
Railroad company today and confis
cated four cars of coal.
The fuel was loaded into auto
trucks and wagons and hauled to
the nine churches and ten public
schools in the borough.
The schools have been closed for
two weeks because the coal com
panies have refused to sell coal in
Olyphant borough, although thou
sands of tons are mined there
daily. The Olyphant citizens held
a midnight meeting Saturday with
Burgess P. B. Dempsey, members
of the council and the school board.
It was decided that the burgess
should exercise his police power and
confiscate sufficient coal to supply
the schools and churches.
Shortly after 6 o'clock this morn
ing the fire gong in Olyphant was
blown. This was the signal for
the seizure of the coal. Fire trucks
loaded -wth firemen raced through
the streets and got the citizens tip.
Scores of vehicles including auto
trucks, wagons and push carts
joined in the raid. Hundreds of
men and boys, carrying shovels,
formed in line. Burgess Dempsey.
the councilmen and school directors,
all with shovels on their shoulders,
led the caravan on ,the half-mile
jaunt to the railroad yards. Hun
dreds of women lining the streets
yelled words of encouragement to
"Get us coal for our schools and
churches!" "Fight for fuel if you
have to!" These were some of the
cries of the women.

Disorder Follows Running Down
of Worker by Strikebreaker
in an Automobile.
The first disorder of any sort in
the longshoremen's strike broke out
yesterday at the Ainsworth deck,
where a menacing crowd of 100 or
more strikers, a dozen accompanied
by women, gathered for a noisy
demonstration against the men who.
had taken their places. J
Trouble was precipitated when L.
W. Smith, a strikebreaker, returning
from lunch toward the dock in a
machine at about 12:30 o'clock, was
set upon by the jeering mob. Fear
ing that they would upset his car.
and hoping to shake off those who
had boarded it, he opened his
throttle and made for the dock. One
striker was knocked down and
bruised, and the rest rushed toward
Smith's car In ugly mood. Officers
appeared in. numbers in time to pre
vent further violence. Smith was
arrested on a charge of reckless
driving and released on his own
Before the assault upon him the
mob had edged up close to the line
of demarkation between city and
railroad property and had been en
gaged for a half hour or more in
baiting strikebreakers on their way
to lunch Women in the crowd were
said to have used foul language and
to have pulled and hauled the men
as they went by.
Comment was made by Captain
Moore, in charge of the strike trou
ble, that the temper of the strikers
was becoming increasingly ugly.
Acting on his orders the police
broke up the, gathering at the dock
on the grounds that it was too ex
tensive for a picket line.

Glowing tribmes were paid to tha

front of the exhibition building in
memorial to Mr. Stimson.
Four speakers extolled Mr. Stlm

more toward encouraging the breed
ing of purebred stock in this country
than any other one man. The speak
ers were Governor Olcott, O. M.
Plummer, secretary and manager of
the exposition; E. A. Stuart, presi

'ARTHUR SURE OF PLACE
His Re-election Expected by
PIERCE ERRORS COSTLY
Attack on Highway Commission
Said to H.ave Hurt Cause
to Vast Extent.
From the eleventh hour quiet, tha
pre-election calm, that has settled
over republican headquarters pend
ing the triai by ballot tomorrow,
two confident statements emerge.
The one is that Governor Olcott wiil
be re-elected by a majority of 20,
000 votes and upward. The other
that republican members of the Ore
gon congressional delegation will be
returned, and that Representative
McArthur of the third district will
experience no difficulty in defeating
his democratic opponent. Elton Wat
kins. "Our prediction," t-aid Walter L.
Tooze Jr., stats chairman or the re
publican "committee, "is that Gov
ernor Olcott will defeat Walter M.
Pierce by not less than 20,000 votes.
The three republican representatives
in congress, McArthur, Hawlcy and
Sinnott, are certain to be returned
to Washington. McArthur will win
in Multnomah county by not less
than 7500 votes. In every essential
respect, despite the bitterness of
the opposition, and the unscrupu
lous tactics employed, it will be con
clusively demonstrated that the re
publican state of Oregon : is SHU
"Governor uieolt will carry 23
counties,- including Multnomah. Ad
dltioaally, he may carry, for he has
a strong chance in each, four doubt
ful counties. We concede to Pierce
not more than 10 counties, and even
in these strongholds of the demo
cratic candidate he has been steadily
slipping during the past two weeks.
Olcolt's local friends in these coun
ties maintain that Pierce Will not
carry them, or only by the narrow
est of margins.
"Our estimates have been .most' -'
conservatively compiled from the re
ports of political observers in every
county of Oregon independent " in-,
vestiators who are in no way. con
nected with the state republican or
ganization. We lave the utmost
confidence in the figures supplied.
Pierce Lender Talks Hopefully.
A majority of 30,000 votes for
Walter M. Pierce, democratic can
didate for governor of Oregon, was
the prediction of Dr. Charles J.
Smith, state democratic chairman,
who based his prediction on reports
received from all county chairmen
in the state.
"We estimate," he said, "that
250,000 votes will be cast in the
state out of a total registration of
345,000 persons. Of this number.
Pierce will receive 140.000 votes and
Olcott 110,000. Elton Watkins, dem
ocratic candidate for congress, is
expected to carry Portland by 15,000
votes. We further expect to elect
10 democratic members to the Ore
gon state senate and 12 democratic
members to the house of representa
tives." McArthur Certain to Win.
"A most careful Inquiry in Mult
nomah county indicates beyond all
doubt that Representative McArthur'
will be re-elected by a substantial
majority. The demagogic campaign
of his opponent, like that of Pierce,
has not made the expected head
way. Mr. McArthur has made a
good record, and political observ
ers note that, despite predictions to
the contrary, he is being warmly
supported by ex-service men. His
vote for disabled soldiers and his
stand on the Bursun bill have made
him many friends among thone who
wore the . uniform. My prediction
is that Representative McArthur wpl
win in Multnomah county with a
majority of not less than 7500."
With respect-to the county ticket,
W.' E. Eddy, county chairman, be
lieves that republican candidates
will sweep the field. As for the"
re-election of Representative Mc-'
Arthur, while admitting that his
majority will be reduced, his fore
cast is that the third district will
return Mr. McArthur by not less
1(j 00 majority. Governor
Olcott's majority in jviUsitnaman
county, according to the viewpoint -of
Chairman Eddy, will vary from
a minimum of 10,000 upward to
' Candidates Dodge BUI.
Political observers see in the trend
away from Pierce and Watkins
growing unpopularity of the com
pulsory school bill. Both espoused
the measure when it appeared to be
more popular than it is now. But
since the hool bill became ob
viously a lost cause both candidates
have cut loose from it and the
measure docs not appear to be spon-
