The War Cloud in Europe.
The chief topic around the War;
and Navy Departments and in all of-
ficial Washington, is the war between
Italv'and Turkey. It is noticeable
that sympathy is generally on the
side of Italy and Is as pronounced as
it was on-the side or Japan in tne
Russian-Japanese War. The Italian
fleet has sunk several Turkish war
ships, and has bombarded and taken
possession of Tripoli, the Turks hav
ing refused to evacuate.
A prominent officer of the United
States Army, at the War Depart
ment, on this morning, said that
capturing of Tripoli by Italy did
mean that Italy will be able to Ion
trol without much trouble and
pense, and probably more fighting,
anything more than the city oiiTri
poli. He observed that the couitry
of Tripoli was as large as France,
and that the back-country in the ills
and as far back as the Desert oySa-
hara; was inhabited by Arab tnpes- j
men. He said that these Arabs fere
the people in whose country tbeio -
hammedan religion was born, Jr
that they revered the Korean as nfich
as Christians do the Bible and jthe
New Testament. N

inventions. He said that these peo
ple were not only intelligent, hat
they were brave, that-they wen all
mounted on the fine Arab steeds, and
that for years Turkey had bees fur

best quality of Mouser rifles and am
munition. He further said tW on

I Madero, who headed and financed,

public, The election, necessarily, was
very much like the former elections
of Diaz for the seven times he was
elected President; that is, less than
one-twentieth of the people voted.
There was this difference', however; it
