Children Cry for
The Turkish Indemnity.
New York, Jan. ll).Mfcp-itch to
the World from UostotraiwB;
A naval officer whAtjJhas Just re
turned from Washington says:
"There is absolutely reliable author
ity for tlie statement J,bat the ad
ministration has preparefl a plan of
campaign against Turkeylo force the
government of that country to comply
with tho demands ofythe United
Suites for Indemnity for Jloss of prop
erty and for the future protection of
Americans within her domain.
The authorities do .Jot deny this
statement, though thoy have not
hesitated to say that iw! orders what
ever have been Issued tojtlie vessels of
tho navy for carrylngVhls order Into
effect. Upon excellent? authority It is
stated that tho department of state
recently entered Intowjrrcspondenco
with tho foreign powersand that none
of them will Intcrfero.fc
"The plan, as I understand it, con
templates a naval demonstration
against Turkey and perhaps an occu
pation of one of its cities, it has In
view the concentration of practically
tho entire United Slates navy In
Turkish waters. T 10 leal reason
why Real Admiral Bu ice's Heel lias
been held at Hampton roads, instead
of sailing about Christmas time, as
was the original intention, Is because
tho authorities have considered tho
dispatch of tho fleet to Turkish
waters. The Asiatic squadron lias
also been considered and there, arc
ponio officers at Washington who bc
llovo that it is on the way to tho
Mediterranean,! the Asiatic station,
usually so prolific in movements, has
not been heard from in several weeks.
Tho Newark, in South Atlantic
waters, was also talked of.
"Tho United States would be nolo
to make an imposing dcmonstatlon
against tho Turkish govornmont, for
tho Turkish navy could not act
effectively agalnstyt. It la qulto anti
quated, and could easily lib- blown off
tho seas by tho United Statos vessels.
It Is certain that some decisive stroke
is being considered. In any event,
there is occasion for believing that tho
department will Increase tlio European
squadron by tho Now York and
probably two othor vcssols. Tho
transfer of Admiral Bunco's flag to
the Maine, is regarded In this con
nection as significant "

States district court today Judge
Grosscup handed down an opinion on
a motion to quash indictments of tho
