Austrian Ambassador Threatens to Qo
Horns and Tension Is Serious.
London, Doc. l.A dispatch to tho
Tlmosfrom Constantinople nays that
tho tension between Austria and Tur
key is becoming moro serious. Tho
departuro of tho Austrian ambassador,
Marquis Pallavicini, will mean tho
comploto rupture of negotiations. It
ih difficult to seo how this can be avoid
ed by Turkoy whilo Austr.n maintains
hor demand for suppression of tho boy
cott by active interference of tho
porto. Ui.der tho new regime this is
impossible, no oven if tho government
issutd orders to that effect they would
i.ot bo obeyed.
Tho heads of tho guilds concerned
havo told tho grand vizier that tho boy
cott will be persisted in so long as Aus
tria pcru'Vores in her present uttitude.
A dlspa ch to the Times from Vien
na says tho mptror'o determination to
maintain peace is a hopeful sign.
There nro rumors that Marquis Pullu
vlcini is not likely to leave ConstHnii
n pie and ilu ro is much speculation
concerning tho long audlcnco which tho
ompuror granted today to Count Juhus
Andmssy, tno Hung, rian min stor of

Count Andrassy was tho only Iiungn

Old Equipment Will Causo Railroads
to Soek Relief From Shippers.
Washington, Dee. r. Shortage o
rolling stock caused by the failure of
the railroads to keep up their equip
ment during the recent financial
stringency will result in swccpmik ad
vances m rates, according to the state
ment of members of the interstate
"I have no doubt," said one of the
commissioners in explaining the situa
tion, "that an attempt will be made
all along the line to push up rates in
every possible way. The railroads
nave cultivated the impression that
they are not receiving sufficient
money to maintain their efficiency and
to g.ve good service and pay their
'As soon as business revives the
railroads all over the country arc go

no rolling stock to speak of and they

begin announcing that they must get
more money to lay tracks and buy
cars and that to advance rates is the
only means of setting the needed

"Already the advances have begun.
The commission has before it one
case which involves an advance in
rates in all the southeast. There is
another case which involves advances
in the southwest.
Site Prices Too High.
Washington, Dec. 4. Assistant Sec
retary of the Treasury Winthrop haB
intimated that the prices asked for the
four sites in San Francisco suggested
as locations for the new Bubtreasury,
were too Bteep; higher than business
conditions in that city warranted and
more money than the Federal govern
ment proposed to pay. The choice of
one of these four sites may bo swayed
by the alacrity with which tho owners
of the property take the hint and re
duce their figures. The new subtreas
ury will bo a four-Btory structure of

Uncle Sam to Keep Aloof.
Washington, Dec. 2. The United
States government has no present in
tention of intervening in Haytian
affairs. This statement is made on
the best of authority. The situation
on the island is an internal one and as
far as known hero it is to deal entirely
with th"e people. rJ he Haytian situa
tion is not complicated by the position
of the work of "cmigrados," which
obtains so frequently in Central Amer
ican revolutions. President Nord
Alexis has been in power a number of
years and for the time boing at least
there is no ground lor American inter

Washington, Dec. 1. The possibil
ity of the great Atlantic battleship
fleet, strong and powerful afloat, lying
weak and helpless because of lack of
coal, is shown in tho report of Admiral
Cowlc, chief of the bureau of equip
ment, to tho Navy department. Ac

Washington, Dec. 3. The construc

preparing to leave Washington. Mr.
nietcau suggested inut mx ui mu uint

MAKES NEW RECORD.
Government Printing Office Did Much
Washington, Dec. 3. Tho govern
ment printing office was an important
factor In tho recent presidential cam
paign. This institution turned out
for tho Republican and Democratic
parties 7,418,700 copies of speeches
delivered in congress, surpassing all
previous records by 3,000,000 copies
Tho total weight of campaign
speeches printed since tho beginning of
tho Sixtieth congress exceeds 400,000
pounds, or about 14 carloads. The
printed sheets would completely cover
45 square acres of ground, and if each
page could be laid end to end a bicycle
track 947 miles long could bo ob
The number of words contained In
this year's run of speeches has been
roughly estimated at 230 billion. With
the newspaper calculation of four read-
era to each copy, this would require
the assimilation of nearly a trillion
The printing of speeches in the gov'
ernment printing office for members of
the senate and house of representatives
has been reduced to an exact science
through years of experience. The
printing is paid for by the member of
congress drawing the rcqiiisitoin, but
the mailing is done by frank, at public
MARRIAGE PROVES FAILURE.
Federcl Statistics Show One Divorce

Washington, Dec. 1. A higher di

any of the foreign countries where sta
tistics are available is announced by
the census bureau, which, in a bulletin
just is ued, says that at least one mar
riage in 12 in this country ultimately
terminates in divorce.
Divorce is now two nnd one-half
times as common, compared with the

ago. Utah and Connecticut arc the
only two states showing a decreased

Washington, Dec. 4. "To keep her

the United States commission to the
Tokio exposition; who has just returned
from his trip to Japan and who today

Condemnation Suits for Ground.
Washington, Dec. 1. The Federal
court in Hawaii will soon begin con
demnation suits for possession of land
for a new military post at Waikiki.
The post will be made the headquarters
of tho coast artillery branch of the
army. Prices for the property have
been agreed upon and no trouble is ex
pected. It is believed the government
will place dredges on the submerged
lnnds and use the material taken from
the bay for new boad building.
Let Fleet Go On Around.
Washington, Dec. 1. Senator Flint,
of C lifornia, announced today after a
conference with the president, that he
would take no p rt in a movement to
keep the bt tleship fleet in the Pacific
waterB. 'The senator said: "The pres
ident's aim was to send the fleet
around the world. It is now on its
way home. No reacon has arisen why
the journey should not be completed.'
Senator Flint said the president favor

Washington, Dec. 2. Public Printer
John S. Leach has sent his resignation

Samuel B. Donnelly, of Brooklyn, N.
Y., former president of the Interna
tional Typographical union, was ap
pointed to succeed Mr. Leach. The

said Mr. Leach s retirement was due
to tho president's opposition to some

FINCH KILLS FISHER.
Oregon Bar Prosecutor Shot by Dis
Portland, Nov. 30. Attorney Ralph
B. Fisher, prosecutor for the grievance
committee of the Oregon State Bar
as-ociation, was shot and killed almost
instantly at 1:30 o clock Saturday
afternoon by Attorney J. A. Finch,
who had been recently disbarred as the
result of charges of drunkenness that
were prosecuted by Mr. Fi her.
The tragedy occurred in Mr. Fisher s
private ofn:e, 322 Mohaw k building,
Third and Morrison streets. Miss
Verna Burkhart, Mr. Fisher's steno
grapher, was the only witness, and she
fled screaming from the room. The
assassin emerged deliberately from the
room where ray bin victim, walked
down the corridor and was about to
take the elevator when f eized by Dr.
H. F. Leonard, who detained him.
Finch was at once taken into the
office from which sulphurous smDke was
still pouring, and looked down upon the
prostrate form that he had slain. He
gazed coolly and apparently unmoved
upon the bleeding figure, uttered not a
word, turned and walked out in the
cuctody of the officers.
'I wouldn't speak to him, and I'll
get the rest of the bunch," Finch said
to one of the officers who rode in the
patrol wagon with him to the station.
At the city jail Finch positively de
nied the murder to Di trict Attorney
Cameron. He had been in his own
office nearly all day, he said, and had
not been near Mr. Fisher s office. He
talked confusedly and at times unintel-
lgibly, apparently under the influence
of either drugs or liquors, or premedi-
tatingly preparing grounds for the de
fense of insanity.
Fight Safety Appliance Law.
San Francisco, Nov. 30. The North
western Pacific railroad, a branch of
tho Harriman system, running 100
miles north of this city, has deter
mined to fight the constitutionality of

BIGGY IS DROWNED
San Francisco Officer Disappears
From Patrol Launch.
PROMINENT IN GRAFT TRIALS
After Having Served As Ruef s Jailor
and Police Chief. Quarreled
San Francisco, Dec. 1. William J.
Biggy, chief of police of this city, was
drowned late last night whilo return
ing across the bay in the police patrol
launch Patrol. Mr. Biggy had been at
Belvedere, a suburb, to call on Police
Commissioner Keil, who resides there.
He boarded the launch to return to the
city about 10 o'clock, and when tho
boat was out on the bay complained of
feeling cold to Engineer Murphy, tho
only other occupant of the launch. Mr.
Murphy advised him to go to the cabin
at the stem of the boat.
Mr. Murphy then went below to at
tend his engine and did not see the
chief again. He came on deck as the
boat neared the city and noticed that
the chief had disappeared. A search
of the boat failing to locate him, Mr.
Murphy made all speed to the dock,
where he reported the accident and
went out into the bay again to search
for the missing officer. Numerous
boats were hurried to the scene and a
careful search of the bay wa3 begun.
William J. Biggy was appointed
chief of police by Mayor Taylor after
the latter bad been placed in office
upon the removal of Mayor tu. a.
Schmitz. Biggy succeeded Jeremiah
F. Dinan, against whom the grand jury
returned an indictment in connection
with the bribery cases. When Abra
ham Ruef was arrested, the prosecu
tion asked that Biggy be appointed
elisor and be given the custody Ot the
prisoner. For eight months he held
this position and at the expiration of
that time was appointed chief of po
lice in September, 1907, through the
influence of the graft prosecution.
Ever since the suicide of Morris
Haas, the man who attempted to kill
Assistant District Attorney Heney and
who later took his own life at the coun
ty jail, the relations between the chief
and the graft prosecution have been
strained to the breaking point.
