Waablngton, Aug. 28. A decidedly
new turn In the cane of United State
Vlce-Conaul William C. Magelasen at
Beirut, who waa rporte to have been
aaaaMlnated at Bunday, developed to-
night when It became known that the
report waa Inoerrect and, although Mr.
Megetaw'n had been nhot at, he had not
even been Injure!. Thla authentic In
formation came to the atate de
partment tonight In a diapatcb from
Minister LeUhman at Conatantlnople,
who aald the mlntake in making the
original announcement waa due to an
error In the tranamltalon of the cipher
dispatch from Consul Itavunal at Be
irut In reporting the Incident to the
minister. lt eontenta were extornely
gratifying to ;he official of the govern'
ment, a It relieved the situation of
It eitreme tennlon and waves way
open for nn amicable and peaceful ad
justment of the incident.
Secretary LooniU gave a summary of
the content of Minister Irishman's
dlaiiatch. It showed that Magelssen
had been shot at by some person at the
time unknown to the official but he
hitd not been hit. Local Turkish offl
cluls w'r prompt to express their re-
get at the occurence and were eierting
thetnaejve to apprehend the asissln,
but thus far hud been unuecsaful.
The mlnlater' dlsputrli also said Con

that some of the foreign consuls V ated

ceed to Beirut
Oyster Bay, Aug. 2S. President
Ttoosevelt was Informed tonight of the
Incorrectness of the report tluit VJce
Consul William C. Mogelssen at Beirut
had been assassinated. The president
expressed great' satisfaction that Mr.
Mag'lssen hnd escaped without Injury
from the assault of th i would-be-nmr-derer.
He announced, however, that
no change would bo made In the plans
of the government and that the Europ
ean squadron which he Inst niht or
dcred to proceed Immediately to llelrut
would proceed to Its ordered destina
tion. It can be said that the president
and Secretary Hay both regard It ad
visable in view of the present state of
unrest In Turkey, to have American
war vessels in Turkish waters.

the Inter-Ocean from Minneapolis.

Edith White, former wife of John A.
AVhite, general agent of the Deering
Division of the International Harvester
Company, died of starvation' tn the
Klondike country and hr body prob
ably has been devoured by wild beasts.
Such Is the Information contained in
n dispatch from Seattle, which gives
the details of the finding of the unfor
tunate woman's ; diary, containing a
history of her life from the time she
left her home in Mankato, until she
died of exposure and lack of food In
the heart of the trackless Cooper river
country. Mrs. White was a trraduate
of the dental, school of the State Uni
versity and was practicing dentistry In
Dawson City two years ago.
She wrote her relatives here, saying
she was going into the; interior and
probably would not be heard from for
some time. In a 'letter written from
Central Alaska,' July 29, 1903, Wlllam
Shatter, a petty officer In the employ
ment of the government signal corps
tells of finding letters and a diary tend
ing to show that Mrs. White perished
from cold and hunger, while trying to
make her way unaccompanied to an In
terior camp In the Copper River coun
try. ,' - ' .

dwelling on th growing danger pf the
Macedonian problem. :
Th Daily Telegram ay: "If there
ia war In the Balkan the ptizea will
not fall to the Turk or hi allies, al
though victory should Incline to their
side. It Is thoroughly characteristic
of eastern politic that at the moment
Turkey is doing penance for the murder
the British Consul at Monastir, some
Irresponsible fanatic should assassinate
an American Consul and bring yet an
other angry power knocking at the gate
of the Yildl Kiosk. Thl time we
know what will happen, The United
State 1 not hampered by traditions
tn dealing with Turkey and will not
be reduced to nerveless indecision by
consideration of Austrian Or Russian
Tbe Daily Chronicle think It im
probable that the deed was a mere
coincidence and my it seems to point
to a widespread revival of anti-Chris
tian feeling throughout Ottpman Em

the European powers cannot Ignore.
