Evening Tribune, The (Newspaper) - January 3, 1912, Albert Lea, Minnesota TRADE WITH OUR ADVERTISERS THE EVENING TRIBUNE FOR RESULTS WANTCOUMN VOL. XVI ALBERT LEA, MINNESOTA, FRIDAY, JANUARY 3, 1912. NO. 27 MAY YEl ON ADRIANQPLE Turkish Stronghold Seems Main Stumbling Block, BELITTLE OTTOMAN TERMS Balkan'Peace Envoys Desire Definite- ly to Settle Forever Their Differ- ences WitJi the Ottoman Empire, While the Sultan's Delegates Em- phasize the Enormous Importance of What They Have Ceded. London, Jan. plenipotentia- ries to the peace conference enjoyed a day of general relaxation. Even tile meeting of the ambassadors was pure- ly academic, as all agreed that the ad- vances by Turkey had changed the situation to such an extent that they must await corresponding instructions from taeir governments. That the game is being played on both sides is evident. The Turks em- phasize the enormous importance of what they have ceded, which in real- ity is only what they have lost and what, independently of the aihes, not even the powers would allow them to reconquer. The allies, on the other band, belittle the Turkish concessions, as the3r desire definitely to settle for- ever their differences with the Otto- man empire. The real stumbling block is Adrianc- ple. As a compromise a solution re specting the Aegean islands is possi- ble. Some suggest that Turkey cede them to the powers, which can decide their fate. Supporters ot this plan hint that Turkey mignl even cede the islands to the allies, as has practical- ly been done with Albania, on condi- tion that the powers pledge themselves to claim, as in the case of Albania the right to decide the status of the Aegean archipelago. The struggle certainly now will be bitter between the Turks and the al- lies. The former are threatening to appeal to oE Kurope; the. latter are threatening to resume the war. May Be Left Ambassadors. It is expected, er, that relief from this situation may result from the meeting of the ambassadors, to whose judgment probably both Turkey and the allies will submit, if they de- cide unanimously what the fate of tlie islands must be. The powers are particularly con- cerned in this question, because some of the Imbros, Lemnos and of interna- tional importance, commanding as they do the entrance to the Darda- nelles, while Mitylene and Chios bar the entrance of the Gulf of Smyrna. The remainder of the islands are still in the hands of Italy, which occupied them during the war with Turkey. If the powers unanimously ask Greece to evacuate some of the is- lands already occupied it is belie% eu Greece cbsy, as she did at Av- lona on the simple intimation of Italy, and as Servia and Montenegro did on the Albanian coast on the Adri- atic, or prepared to do, in order to please Austria. There appears to be among the am- passadors a strong current in fa-'or "f the annexation of Crete to Greece, but they assert that in exchange they should be intrusted with the decision respiring the fate of the islands Regarding -the frontiers of Albania" the opinion prevails among the am- bassadors that they will be able to strike a proper medium between the too restricted suggestions of the allies and the toe extended boundaries favored by Austria. It is reported that the Russian, Italian and French ambassadors are supporting this mid- dle course. LONG LEGAL BATTLE ENDS Widow Gets Share of Wealthy Min- neiotan's Estate.

"I esteem him very said Mr. Wilson later in referring to Gov- ernor Norris. "I have seen him at the conferences of the house of gov- ernors. He madfi an admirable im- pression and is very aggressive." The president elect, however, held to his previous policy of not commit- ting himself in respect to intended appointments.

BAILEY MAKES FINAL ADDRESS Noted Texan Will Soon Resign From the Senate. MERCILESSLY FLAYS HEAHST Lone Star State Senator Refers to New York Newspaper Man as at "Miserable Who Had "Hound- ed Him" General Trend of the Speech Was an Attack on the Princi- ples of the Initiative and Referendum. Washington, Jan. 3. Senator Joseph W. Bailey of Texas, long one of. the picturesque figures and striking speak- ers of the United States senate, de- livered before crowded floor and gal- leries his final speech as a member of that body. Within a day or two his resignation will be laid before tije senate and communicated to Governor Colquitt of Texas, his expectation be- ing that R. M. Johnston, of Houston. will be named to fill out his term, which would end on March 4. Senator Bailey's speech was an at- tack upon the principles of the initia- tive and referendum as institutions that would, if adopted, bring about the overthrow of the present system of American government. He declared they originated in the desire of politicians to escape the re- aponsibility for action on such petty questions as the location of state capitols and the settlement of prohi- bition fights. As institutions of gov- ernment, he declared, the schemes for direct legislation by the people would. convert the United States from a re- public to a democracy and give its control into the "hands of the un- skilled, the idle and the vicious." An attack upon William R. Hearst, in the course of his speech, in which he characterized Mr. Hearst as a "mis- erable who had "hounded brought Senator Ashurst of Arizona to his feet He attempted to answer this passe of Mr. Bailey's attack apon radical newspapers and magazines, but was stopped by the Texas senator with the remark that he "could make that reply outside." Later Mr. Ashurst took the floor in his own right and in the course of his defense of the system of direct gov- ernment paid a tribute to Mr. Hearst as a loyal American citizen. Galleries and Corridors Filled. Galleries were crowded to their ut- most capacity and long lines of peo- ple waited in the corridors for an op- portunity to hear the Texan's farewell address to the stnate. To the mem- bership of the senate was added nearly seventy-flve members of the house, who filled the benches and lined .the walls along the floor of the chamber Senator Bailey spoke for four hours and throughout that time ho received the closest attention. As he conclud- ed a of applause swept through the Raiieries, bringing a sharp repri- mand from Senator Gallinger, the pre- siding: officer. President Elect Wilson, although quoted liberally by Senator Bailey in defense of his declaration that direct legislation is not in accord with the principle of American government, re- ceived only commendation from the Texas senator. "If the -man we have elected presi- dent of the United States gives the country a sane and satisfactory ad- he declared, "the Re- publican party will never nominate another candidate for the presidency. "Why should he continued, advancing toward the Republican side of the chamber. "You did not carry but two <5tites this year and those two of the smallest. The contest four- years from now will be between us and the Rooseveltians. He (Roose- velt) take some more, bnt thank God they will be the kind we can af- ford to lose. "Our conflict Is with Roosevelt. If our president believes he can take the radical -vote away from Roosevelt be Is mistaken."
