Russia Determined to Have
Constantinople and Aus
tria, the Adriatic Terri
tories"War Seems Certain
lUNITKD 1'IIBHH I.KAHKD WIIIK.
Vrenna, Oct. 26. It is an open -secret
here that, with France as leader,
the jiowers are already moving to
ward Intervention in the Balkan strug
gle, and the apparent unity of Russia
and Austria has projected a new light
on the Furonean allmiment TiVmr.
1 ing that the success of the Balkan nl.
lies, if peace were made, would result
In their demand of a partition of Tur-key-iii-Ourope
alone, Russia and Austria are believed
to have taken alarm for the Biiccess of
their own traditional projects.
Jlusslii Will (,'ruli.
For ngos RiiBsla haB been deter
mined that when the Turk was ('.riven
out of ICtirope, Constantinople should
come under the dominion of the czar,
and Austria has been as determined
that the Turkish territories on the
Adriatic should fall to her. The vic
tories of the Ilulkan allies, and espe
cially the declared plan that they have
formed a permanent alliance with the
king of Greece as president have ad
mittedly endangered the Russiun and
Austrian dreams of conquest, and the
notification to Turkey is really taken
as a notification to the powers and
the Balkan states that neither Russia
nor Austria will allow the latter any
territorial extension, which would in
terfere with their own plans for
growth. ,. i
Condition Is a l'uxzle. ''
I "Where Germany will stand in the
division of the powers Is not known,
although It Is believed probably she
Hvlll lineup with Austria, if a struggle
ktt world Importance comes.
I Russia's position Is puzzling. Bound
to the Balkan confederates by ties Of
lilood and religion, it Is regarded as
doubtful if she would allay herself
with Austria. It la thought more prob
Rhle that the Russians would stand
vlth Servla, Bulgaria, Montenegro
lind Greece, bnrgalnlng with them, If
iiecessary, rather than to trust to
Austria's promise of an even division
tf the Moslem territory,
i It is doubtful If France has any ter
irilorlnl designs, but she would prob
ably stand with England and Italy, If
It became necessary to choose.
How They May lHvldo.
Should the situation develop so
vlth Kngland. Italy, France, the Bal
kan states and RubsIb on the one side
luid Austria and Germany on the oth-i-r
ns allies of the' Turk, the world
tvar, which Europe has dreaded since
jHie first days of the near Eastern
tUP8tlnn, probably would develop into
farnngo without parallel In the Ills
Jury of humanity. Whether the partl-
Iion of Turkey will ever be put to the
rbltrament of arms, of course, Is
tlouhtful. There are great forces
working to prevent, such a course.
t'nt it is a certainty thot the Bal
kan allies have felt their power b
hover before; that they are united as
iiever before, and thnt, If they crush
flie Turk, they will not allow them
selves to be robbed of the fruits of
Victory without a struggle to the
Crisis Is Apprnnr-hliig.
The siege of Adrlonople, which Is
iroceedlng today, Is expected to
rlne matters toi a crisis In the near
future. Already It Is reported here
that the Bulgarians are engagea in an
ittempt to storm Adrlnnople. Their
Confidence and strength are shown In
Reports that, believing the city sure to
fall. Czar Alexander has divided his
forces, and, leaving one command to
Rapture the city, already Is pushing
Southward, with the mnin army to
ngage'the principal Turkish force,
i hlch Is drawn nn in line of battle 2
jilles to the south.
J Flushed with victory as are the
pulgnrlans operating In Thrace, their
lurcesses have been no more import
ant to the general plans of the allies
than have been those of the Serbs In
Macedonia, the Montenegrins in Al
bania or the Greeks who are moving
from their frontier to Salonika,
T Allies Will Flirhl.
f Vlctorv In every section of the at
tacked Turkish dominions so far hnB
Inclined to the allied Christiana
.Should their successes continue and
nil of Turkev-ln-Europe west of the
Unsphorus fall Into their hands, It Is
freely admitted here that monre than
mandate of the powers will be need
ed to force from those lands the de
pendents of the men whose fatheis
were conquered by the Turks of the
fifteenth century, and whose sons
lisve ever since struggled for the day
when the cross should rise supreme
again over the crescent, and the atroc
ities of the Turk be wiped out in ret
ributive blood. That day, the people
of the Balkans believe, hns come, and,
despite all the powers of Europe, it Is
xpected here they will cling to the
land they have retaken while the last
mountaineer can swing a sword.

Old opinions In the archives of the
supreme court show that Mary A.
lconard, the eccentric woman attor
ney, who died In Portland Thursday,
was the cause of an act of tho leg
islature In special session In 18sr.
making It legal for women to be ad
mitted to the bar In Oregon. Mrs.
I,eonnrd's story Is an Interesting one.
In 1877 she married Daniel (i. I-on-ard
at The Dalles. Shortly after
ward her husband died of poison, and
hIio was accused of big murder, but
later aoduitted. While In Jail she
studied law. In Washington territory
she was admitted to practice, but In
188.1, when sbo applied for admission
In Oregon, the supreme court refused
on the grounds that the state legisla
ture liad never made provision for
women to practice In this state. The
records show that, later In the same
yenr such a provision was made at a
special session, evidently nrlslnir from
the Incident wllh which she was con
nected. Mary Leonard was tho first
woman admitted to tho bar In this
state. She Is said to have been the
