The wildest excitement prevailed,
however, and besides protecting prop

the greatest difficulty, in protecting
the women from an unruly crowd of

BLAMES IT ON THE FARMERS
Greater Yield of Crops Would Result
in Lowering of Prices.
Washington. It was inevitable
that one way or another the farmer
would at last be blamed for the high
cost of living.
A greater yield of crops at less
cost, by the application of scientific
methods of soil culture: and the use
of business principles, such as mills
and other industries have to employ,
will help break the backbone of high
prices of foodstuffs, according to Prof.
Milton Whitney of the United States
department- of agriculture.
" Mr. Whitney, who is an authority
on soils and their uses, is now prepar
ing a bulletin on the nation's food
supply. He says fewer acres of land
are being cultivated in proportion to
population than heretofore. One-fifth
less acres are being tilled than in

Is Expected. '
London, England. The peace nego
tiations, which reached a deadlock
over the cessation of Adrianople, on
January 6, were finally broken by a
note which the plenipotentiaries of
the Balkan allies presented to Rechad
Pasha, head of the Turkish delega
tion. , ,
Rechad Pasha, after receiving the
"The consequent: es may be of the
gravest nature; "Tile responsi bility
lies not alone with the allies, but with
the powers, who encouraged the Bal
kan states and have shown no fair
ness toward Turkey, although before
the war they solemnly proclaimed the
principle of the unchangeability of
the status quo."
The plan of the allied governments,
so far-'as the plenipotentiaries are in
formed, is, to concentrate their forces
on Adrianople immediately after the
expiration of the prescribed four days,
if the surrender of that fortress does
not occur in the meantime. They
believe that a few days bombard
ment by the big' siege batteries which
now surround Adrianople, 1 will bring
about its capitulation.
The Balkan representatives declare
that all reports that Roumania would
aid Bulgaria against. Turkey are un
founded, and they added that if Rou-
mania should take advantage of the
opportunity to gain her territorial
claims by force while the Bulgarian
army is engaged in Turkey, Bulgaria
would let her occupy the territory
she, demands. But as soon as the
Bulgarian army disposed of the Turks
the Bulgarians would turn their at
tention to the Roumanians and at
tempt to make them pay dearly for
this racial disloyalty, which the Bul
garians consider would , be treason.

to the safer total of 49, a majority
Mr. Saulsbury's election, added to
the victory recently secured in Ten

absolute control of the senate after
March 4. The vote of : Vice President

what they believe to be a safe mar

UNCLE SAM US
SECRETARY NAGEL FORMALLY
BARS EXILE FROM THE
. UNITED STATES.
MURDER IS LAID TO HIM
Alleged Castro Refused to State
Whether He Was Party to. Kill- "
ing of General Paredes.
Washington. Cipriano Castro, for
mer president of Venezuela, was de
nied admission to the United States
as a visitor by Charles Xagel, secre
tary of commerce and labor. The
Venezuelan's unwavering refusal to
answer the question whether, while
president of his country, he was a
party,, to the killing of General Pa
redes was the cause of Secretary Na
gel's order for his deportation.
The cabinet minister sustained the
adverse report of the immigration au
thorities against Castro on the
ground that his declination to answer
"may in itself constitute an admission
by conduct'1 of the commission of a
felony. The immigration law bars
from entry any person convicted of or
admitting the commission of a crime
involving moral turpitude, providing
it is not purely a political offense.
The secretary held that the1 murder
of Paredes was not a purely political
Further, the secretary declared that
an alien was compelled to answer
"yes" or "no" any pertinent question
regarding his admissibility If per
mitted to refuse he maintained that
"the immigration service might just
as well adjourn.'
The alleged information against
Castro was furnished the department
cf commerce and labor by the state
department, and Secretary Nagel, in
his decision, frankly admits that but
for the state department's action, Cas
trol probably would have been admit
ted without question.

TEACHERS OF SITE
WILL HOLD MEETING IN RALEIGH I
THANKSGIVING WEEK OF NO
WINS MEETING ON ITS MERIT!
In Former Years Cash Considerations
Had Much to Do With Place of
Meeting. Raleigh May be Perman
ent Place of Assembly. ,
Raleigh The North Carolina Teach
ers' Assembly will meet in Raleigh
November of this year and the city,
wins it on Its merit. The date , is,
the week of Thanksgiving. ' This was
determined at a meeting ot the exec
utive committee of the assembly andi
the first visit that this body has made
to Raleigh since 1905 will be the 1913
convention. ; " .' :
In all former years cash considera
tions have had much to. do with; the
coming here of the teachers. " They
have needed the money and ' those
towns that put it up attracted them.
It was not the money that brought
them, but it was the prospect of an
even break that did it. Things'1 have
now changed so much that . the
money offer will more than likely be
discontinued. Raleigh . lost It T to
Greensboro last year because 3reeii
boro sent the monetary consideration.
The teachers wanted to come here
then but could not well afford it.
The prospects of having this body
here every fall are bright. It is the
geographical point of vantage. It is
nearer the center of the state, than
any other city able to care for so big
a body and is abundantly blessed with
hotels and railroad. It will make
cheape rthe travel and the entertain?
ment of those who come and Raleigh
has an immense benefit to offer in the
way of schools and institutions allied
with schools. The speaking attrac
tions are more easily brought here
because any man in the county would
rather go to the capitol of a i state
than anywhere else in it. ,1 v
The cutting loose from the cash
bonus idea once, which was done this!
time, will make it easier to discon-f
tinue it indefinitely, and it is believed;
that good-bye has been said to it forj
all time. Raleigh will give as much
money to entertainVthe teachers as .
anybody, but this should be an after; I
consideration the people here think. j
