Sultan Will Fo'rtlfy Balkans. '
London, Sept. 9. Tho News today
states from a semi-official, source in
Constantinople that tho sultan has
decided to send 100,000 troops
through Eastern Iloumania to fortify
tho Balkans. Under the treaty of
Berlin this right Is given the porte,
providing no irregular troops are em
ployed and no stop is made en route
to the frontier.
Tho sultan can thus Invade Bul
garia while acting on his own rights
nnd giving no cause for the powers
interfering. It Is believed this move
will goad Bulgaria into a declaration
of war thus wiving the porte tno onus
of beginning hostilities.
As at present arranged, throe col
umns of Turks will be moved north

Burgas. The second from Adrlauople
to Sllvn. Tho third from Adrlanoplc
to Phlloppolls. All will then proceed
northward. The dlspatcu adds the
plan will be put Into operation within
It has developed that Admiral Cot
ton at Beirut appealed for permission
to land tho marines, but the porte
declined to do so, inasmuch as the
fighting Is between subjects of the
ottoman empire only, and foreign
property and life are not supposed to
be In danger
Long, Terrific Slaughter.
London, Sept. 9. Tho report of
the probable Invasion of Bulgaria Is
regarded In diplomatic circles as of
gravo importance, bb a war between
Bulgaria and Turkey would bo one
long, terrific slaughter. Oriental
warfare is always bloody, but In this
case It would bo ono of almost tin
equaled horrors. Turkey has 750,000
regular soldiers, and with reserves
at'ded, this makes moro than 1,000,
000, while Bulgaria has 200,000 avail
able. The Turks, however, would bo
at a disadvantage, as not being famil

A Portion of the Attractions on a
Vacant Block, the Balance at Inter
section of Court and Main Stock
and Fruit Exhibit on the Side.
Last evening, at the meeting of the
city council, tho business men of the
city were given tho privilege of the
streets for n merchants' carnival to
bo held in tills city from the .0th to
tho 10th of October, and this morn
ing tho men of tho city met Mr. Wil
son, tho manager of tho snows, who
is here to close tho contract, nnd thu
articles wero signed and the enrnl
val is now an assured thing.
According to tho contract that has
been entered Into, the big tent of tho
show will bo at the Intersection of
Court and Main streets. None of tho
streets will bo blocked, and thoro will
be nothing at all on Main street.
Tho carnival company will hnvo a
band on tho stretes all of tho tlmo
during the five days, so that tho peo
ple who come to tho city will havo
a chance for amusement without go
ing Into the tented shows unless they
so deBlro. Everything will be froe
In the city except tho touts.
Along with tho carnival will be
hold a stock, and If possible, n fruit
show, gathered from all parts of tho
county. It Is tho Intention and tho
wish of tho management of mo car
nival to make a beginning for an un
nual county fair to bo held In thlH
city from this year on. Prizes will
bo offered for tho best exhibits of
cattlo and other livestock, and it will
be made worth while for tho farmers
and stockmen of the county to come
hero to exhibit their property. John
Halloy, Jr., Is In charge of tne fair
part of Uiq carnival, and will use
every effort to make tho thing a suc
cess. In a short tlmo tho affair will
bo advertised In sll parrs of tho
county and from Walla Walla clear
to tho other end of the district, and It
is expected that a great many of tho
people will take advantage of tho In
ducements offered to come hero.
Mr, Wilson, on tho other hand, will
leave In a few days for the Interior
of tho county to advertise, and at
the same tlmo will hold out all In
ducements lo tho men ho moots In
tho way of thu stock exhibit. !
From tho Indications, there Is tfVery
roason to suppose that tho carnival
will be a great success and that It
will bo tho beginning of a series of
fairs, such as have proven to bo so
profltablo and Denenciai to oiner
parts of tho stale,

DECLINE IN PRICE.
Believed That Wheat Will Take An
other Raise Before Long,
Wheat has taken h tumble from tho
pedestal that It lias been rusting on
for somo time, und for tho lat two
dnys has been qtiotod nt 07 cents by
tho wholesalers, and at CS and .
cents at thu mills by the millers.
Tho drop Is laid to tho fact that
tho farmers havo boon soiling heav
ily ut tho high figures and tho mills
had all that thny could handle for
the tlmo There hns bcon inoro wheat
sold thus far this season thnu bo
foio at tho sumo tlmo for somo years,
and owing lo the overplus on tho
market tho price has dropped.
But It Is pretty sure to rlso again,
for tho farmers have stopped soiling
und will not deliver their grain for
tho figures that are now being1 offer,
ed. As they have lots of their grain
yet on hand. It Is thought that the
price wilt rlso as soon as the nkl is
out of the local market.
