WARSHIPS ARE SENT
8PECIAL CRUISER SQUADRON TO
IS DECISION OF THE CABINET
Tht Montana and North Carolina,
Sslscttd for This Ssrvlcs, Will
Go to Altxandrttta.
Washlngtoa To afford all protec
tion possible to American citizens
and their Interests In Turkey, the ad
ministration has decided to dispatch a
special cruiser squadron to that coun
try. This was decided upon by the cabi
nent and after Its adjournment an
nouncement of the Intention was made
public. It was explained that this ac
tion was not taken because of any
particular alarming news that had
been received, but simply as a pre
cautionary measures, It being deemed
wise in the present emergency to have
suitable American naval representa
tion in or near the disturbed dis
tricts. The moral effect of the pres
ence of American war vessels will be
beneficial, It Is pointed out.
The squadrons will consist of the ar
mored cruisers North Carolina and
Montana, now Guantanamo, Cuba, un
der command of Captains Marshall
and Reynolds, respectively. Their im
mediate objective point will be Alexan
dretta, on the Mediterranean coast of
Turkey, which is In close proximity
to Tarsus and Adans, where serious
trouble has occurred. From Alexan
dretta the marines on these vessels
may be available for any active work
in assisting Amerlns in trouble In
the surrounding districts. Captain Mar
shall, who will be In command of the
squadron, will report to the American
consul at Alexandre tta for any services
that he may be called upon to perform.
The vessels also will be available for
dispatch to other places in Turkish
waters should conditions make their
presence necessary. The vessels will
stop at Gibraltar for instructions. It
Is hoped at the state department that
the situation will be well under the
control of the Turkish authorities very
soon and that there will be no neces
sity for any demonstration by the
It was first suggested that the scout
cruiser squadron, made up of the
Salem, Birmingham and Chester, be
utilized for this mission, but the fact
that the boilers of the Birmingham
are undergoing repairs will make Its
immediate departure impossible.
The principal Information coming
to the department from Ambassador
Leisbman at Constantinople was thut
there were no Indication of uuy pre
meditated attack upon foreigners. Dur
ing the day Secretary Knox received
several requests that the departing t
use Its elorts to see that American
church Interests were given adequate
protection In the disturbed district.
One came from the chairman of the
foreign missions committee of the
Presbytery of Westchester county,
New York, and another from the sup
erintendent of the Armenian Orphan
age at Reading, Pa.
Drinking Cups Barred.

drinking cup on railroad trains will
soon bo a thing of the pant Following
the example of the Missouri Pacific,
the Union Pacific, Burlington and
Northwestern on Tuesday applied to
the commission for an order directing
them to abolish the drinking cup. The
action of the railroad companies is the
result of the order of the State Board
of Health to abolish the public drink
ing cup, as the board held it wus a
menace to the health of the public.
Four Wives in Three Months.
Fremont, Neb. Only three months

ROSE REFUSES TO CONCUR.
A Dissenting Opinion from Member
of the Supreme Court.
Judge W. B. Rose of the supreme
eourt has filed a dissenting opinion in
the case wherein John J. liPdwith
brought a suit for mandamus against
the state treasurer to compel him to
sign a warrant for $35 for service he
rendered as an Instructor in the uni
versity and to compel him to credit
the university with the sum of $946,
017.9C. In his opinion, in which a majority
of the court concurred, Judge C. B.
Letton granted a mandamus to compel
the state treasurer to countersign tho
warrant, but the relief for the credit
item was not granted. In the same
opinion the court also held that the
"proceeds of the 1-mlll levy" meant
the entire 1-mlll levy. It was held
also that the proceeds arising from
the investment of the permanent uni
versity fund and the fund donated by
the general regents without the legis
lature appropriating the same bienni
ally. In bis conclusion Judge Letton
"As to the details regarding the
funds involved we are not fully ad
vised, but enough appears to justify
us In requiring the respondent to coun
tersign the warrant presented by tho
Judge Rose takes exceptions to this
statement on the part of Judge Letton.
"If there Is an unexpended appro
priation out of which the state treas
urer may lawfully pay the warrant for
$35, I am of the opinion relator should
be required, as a condition of relief, to
describe It In definite and precise
terms, especially under a constitution
providing that "each legislature shall
make appropriations for the expenses
of the government, until the expira
tion of the first fiscal quarter after
the adojurnment of the next regular
session," and that "no money shall be
drawn from the treasury except in
pursuance of a specific appropriation
made by law. When these provisions
of the constitution are respected, there
is never any mistake or uncertainty
about the identity of any appropria
tion or the amount of any unnexpend
ed balance in any fund in the state
New State Fair Building. '
The board of managers of the No
braska Btatc fair met at the state
house and took action toward the erec
tion of one-half of the new stock coli
seum. This building Is to be similar
to the stock coliseums lu the Minne
sota, Indiana and Kentucky fair
grounds, and is to have a ring 120 by
270 feet. Around the ring will be
placed the seats, which will accom
modate over 4,000 people. The build
lug, when completed, will be 200 fett
wide by SaO feet long, and will uo
constructed of steel, brick, and con
crete. The complete cost will be $115,
000, but It is the intention or the board
to only erect half of It for the pres
ent, and when a later appropriation
is received to have it completed. Tho
action of the board regarding the new
building will be referred to the board
of public lands and buildings, as thut
board bus charge of the disbursement
of the appropriation. As soon as tho
board of public lands and buildings
gives Its approval the work on the
new building will be started, and it is
expected that this will be In a short
time. It is the Intention to have it
completed, or at least In such a state
that it can be used by next fall at
Hamilton Appeals Case.
The county of Hamilton has ap
pealed an interesting case to the su
