The ferocity of the war in progre

the Insurrection which resulted in

his successor lias already found im-
possible to carry out in the face of
the condition of the Turkish amplei i
which has not been doing mueh but
promising things for the last half cen-
tury. That an end must <*onie before
many yearfe to the existence of sue!,
a government has ibeen obvious for
some time. European diplomacy Is
chiefly <*>nicer<ned with bringing about
such a division of the Turkish terri-
tory as may prevent a general war.
It is the difficulty of arriving at a
solution of this problem which has
delayed the overthrow of the Otlo-
main« for many years, but the pro-
cess of disintegration continues, and,
again, the critical time a—eerns to
have been reached when the nrMat
nations of Europe will be ealleM ua-

The only thing that has happened
the entire week to mar the pleasure
of the visitors to the carnival, and
that was no fault of the Parker

Frisco railway tracks running direct-
ly through the midway. All day
Thursday there was a gang of men
digging a ditch to lower the tracks,
which made It very unpleasant for
the people to cross the street, after
Mr. Coil. T. Kennedy, manager of the
Parker shows, went to the expense
of having the en-tire midway thor-

his jmtrons, it was a shame to have
this gang of railroad laborer raise

nuisance. (Mr. Kennedy has decided
