NEWTORK, Nov. 15. Uetks Kara
reioff, the prime minister of Bulgaria,
has just been interviewed by the Sofia
correspondent of the Journal and Ad
Tertirer. 'Said -the prime minister: .
"For humanitarian reasons the min
ister of .the interior has undertaken, tc
tolerate fresh intercourse between' Itne
brigands aad an American agent. It
is a bad precedent to recognize the
brigands, however, indirectly, but we
wish to stretch a point for America and
the cause of humanity. The brigands,
wherever they are, can now treat un
molested with the American repre
sentative and safe conduct will be
given to any mas or men recommend
ed by Mr. Dickinson. There is" no
brigandage in Bulgaria. Turkey is the
cause of brigandage, 'murder and mas
sacre jn Macedonia. Conditions there
are intolerable. Europe has been
moving in a vicious circle regarding
Macedonia since the Berlin treaty. All
the powers agree that Macedonia
should have autonomy, but none is
willing to move in the matter. Count
Andrassy of Austria was more- to
blame than Lord Beacoasfield at the
Berlin conference for the present con
dition of Macedonia, which, is crying to
heaven for vengeance-
"France patches up its quarrel witi
Turkey, oblivious of liberty, equality
and fraternity for Macedonia; Ger
many is satisfied with all the material
advantages possible out of Turkey.
The Macedonians themselves may
break the vicious circle and break
Turkey's cruel boast: "We took you
by the sword; by the sword we shall
hold you. All we ask for Macedonia
is autonomy. We do not seek annex
ation. "If the American people knew the
i kind of hellish barbarity perpetrated
by Turkey in Macedonia the voice of
the nation which freed Cuba and
fought the most chivalrous and unself
ish war of modern times would awaken
the cabinets of Europe to a sense of
their duty regarding Macedonia."
In conclusion the premier said a
wished the United States would estab
lish consulates at Sofia and Phillipop
olis, particularly as Bulgaria is en
tirely agricultural and needs American

NEW YORK. Nov. 15. The Ric
Janeiro correspondent of the Herald
cables: The Chamber of Deputies ha
passed a bill increasing the duty oo
flour imported in bags instead of bar
rels. There was a lively discussion
over the measure. It was contended
that flour imported in bags is apt tc
contain dangerous germs, but this as
sertion was combated vigorously.
One member of the budget commit
tee frankly declared that, the object
of the bill was to protect United States
producers against the Argentine. Af
ter the vote had been taken several
deputies said: "The Yankees have
routed the Argentines."
Public opinion and the newspapers
generally disapprove of the new law,
as it is known that flour from the .Uni
ted States arrives in barrels, while
the Argentine product comes in bags
Newspapers of Buenos Ayres unani
mously condemn the measure and re
monstrances will be filed by the Ar
Rani Stall Clerk ia Civil Service.
WASHINGTON. Nov. 15. About twe
hundred employes in the executive
branch of the rural free delivery ser
vice of the postofflce department will
be brought into the civil service by
an order of President Roosevelt, which.
it is understood, will be issued within
a week or two. These employes are
clerks, special agents and inspectors
The 6,000 rural free delivery carriers
throughout the country will not be
brought into the civil service unaer
the same order, but they will be taken
in at some later day. Their civil ser
vice status is to be somewhat different
from that of those first included
though the regulations governing them
have not yet been passed upon.

gin the holding of auctions in the
northwestern part of the state.

have, leased approximately 25,000 acres
of land." said Mr. Eaton. "Every-
where there has been a good demand"
and the bidding has gone consider
ably higher than we expected. The
farmers in the territory we hare vis
ited are well satisfied with "the pros
pects and are "enlarging their farms
wherever they can find vacant land
conveniently situated. The bonuses
offered vary in different- sections, but
are unusually high considering the lo
cal crop damage of the last summer.
Next Monday we begin the leasing of
land In the- extreme western and
northern part of' the state and from
there we. will work eastward into the
