General Knulbars' Demands to Bo Acted on
by the Qovernment ,
A TALK WITH RUSSIA'S AGENT.

SoriA , Sept. 27. | Now Yoik Herald
Cable Special to the llr.Kj The Bulgarian
government will fouually assume an attitude
toward the endless demands of General
Kaulbars when these demands have been
presented In writing. This fact may cause n
further delay of several days In the settle
ment oftho matters In question.
General Kaulbais told mo this morning
that the "object of his mission here Is no
mystery. If Bulgaria hoped for Uusslan sup
port on vital questions she must ask It sin
cerely and without icseivatlon. " Tlio ten-
cralcmphasl/cs the word "sincerely" because
latterly thlnus have occurred hero which are
notcalcttlated to Insptio conllilence , but to
shock public opinion In Hussta ,
which Is snrpilscd that tlio Bul
garian government , vvliilo tendering to
the c/ar by telegram congratulation
on his ieto day , did not make public the
char's answer , which the Russians had aright
to suppose would be posted on every stieet
coiner nnd In every village In Bulgnila.
Itussia wished the elections heio to take
place in ns ncaily u normal condition as
possible , so that all uai ties ml ht take part.
Itussia would only recojnlro as legal an
assembly elected under these conditions ,
to Insure which the general Insisted on the
following points :
The necessity of the immediate lalslng of
the state ot blcgo and an Interval of at least
two mouths between that nnd the election to
onnbio the Bulgailan people , free fiom out-
fildoor Inside pressing to choose theli icpre-
scntntivcs. But given a state of sieire , no
election was piobable.
The olllcers confined should bo released
because Kussia considers them as represent
ing n political party nnd does not find It
seemly that the picsent Bulgatian govern
ment , which is nothing but a political party
Itself , should ucisecnto another political
paity in the absence of a stable goveinmcnt.
General Kaulbais condemned the burning
of the flags on account of a btcnch
of discipline or a breach of honor.
It won d boas well to burn the cioss on an
nltnr for the clime of n pilest. The cioss is
the sacred emblem of n faith , so the stnndaul
Is that of military honor. The ucncral in
conclusion said that the conditions named
weio necessary for a fiee oxeiclse of the pub
lic judgment and that lie had enlbodleil
them In n note to the legcncy
this looming ; that Kusslahad no thought of
naming a candidate now , nor would .she
until the conditions were fulfilled. It they
were icfused , he had other means to fall
back on ,

York Herald Cable Special to the
UKK.I flio moinliiK papers comment
on Mr. 1'arnell's American cablegram to
President Htigcrald ot the Irish National
league. Thn Post says : ' 'The note meditates
a complete severance of Great Britain Irom

"an appeal for moro"as undignified and
nrcucs a against any statutoiy pailiiimcnt.
The News gives great prominence to what
it calls "Painell's Message , " but withholds
comment. The tory Standard calls It "A
Declaration of War" and suggests that It is
the work of some virulent lieutenant. Then

CoNBTANrmoi'i.K , Sept. 27. [ New York
Herald Cable Special to the Br.K.J Much
comment , paitlculaily In Russian and French
diplomatic circles , has been excited by the
fact that several trnnspoits recently touched
nt the Island of Tliasos with largo supplies
and mniaincnt consigned to ngent.s
of the British govcinmont. U IB felt
that - the Kngllsh occupation and
practical annexation of this Island will take
place at the first sign of n Itusslan occupation
of Bulgaria. All the more uneasiness Is felt
because of Thasos belonging to Kirypt , to
which , through Mehamcd All , It was ceded
by the sultan. No technical objection could
bo lalscd against Kncland's occupation so
long as It was sanctioned by the khcdlve.

tlio governor ot a state will not consent to

the consent of the state autlioiltics thebu-
iean will make a systematic and determined

the piovlsions of tlio law , laying particular
stress on the section which it'akrs It requisite

No herds but those In which plcuro-pneu-

has long rmlcavurcd to acquire n cheap iepii-

which Itself assures students of science that
a weather prophet Is either utterly Ig-

noting several Instances of failure of

truly ho has so continued to threaten storms
and cnithqnnkes that no great disturbance of
cither sort followed his predictions. Ho now
loudly pioclaims that on the SOth lust , there
will bo another gicatcnithqunke , one ol the
most terrific subterranean upheavals over

such mediations will attract attention for

a slight tendency to earthquakes to

Cable Special to the IIK. ) : ] At the boat
race won tills afternoon by Christian Nell-
sen , of musical fame , there occuiicd n meet
ing between Keach and Hnnlan. It was a
chance meeting with Ue.ich. The other scul
lers Induced Hanlan to pay \isltto the ilvcr-
sldo jesterday alter noon , when ho at once
hied to his old quarters nt the
Star and ( > rrtcr at I'utncy , and
renewed acquaintance with his former sun-
porters , W. J. Innes , Uoss , Teenier , Lee ,
llubear and others , and subsequently Han-
Inn boarded tlio steamboat Fuchsia , which
was about to follow the race , when lie met
with a hearty reception trom tlio geneial
public lining the tow-path , nnd also fiom
those aboanl the steamer.
Consideraolo curiosity was evinced to wit
ness the meeting of the two great oarsmen ,
nnd on Hanlan making his wnv round to the
side of the \cssol , on which the champion
was standing , milta a little crowd followed
cncer to see and hear all that took place.
Hcachnt that time was In conveisatlon with
Clnsuer , the tuitions boat builder.
Hanlan at Hist did not appear to notice
licacli , who was .seated on the side of the
vessel with his back to tlio water. After he
had gieetcd a well known boat builder and
one or two others , Clasper drew the Canad
ian's attention to the picsonco of the champIon -
Ion , sajlng : "There Is nn old friend of
Here Ilnnlan at onctt turned toward his
great rival nnd apologized for his oversight ,
but to the surprise of many on board who
woio not up to the Ins nnd outs of the affair ,
Ueacli completely Unored Hanlan's existence
for the time , till at length , after nn awkward
pause , tlio ex-champ on broke the Ice by
"I guess you know me ? "
The champion ippllod : "Yes , I know jou
well enough , " in no very coulial terms.
Thence , however , a somewhat lengthened
and desultory conversation ensued. Of
com. so Haitian went to the challcngn ques

' It Is no use to except on the Parametta
when I will lay i on 1,000 to bOO I w in. "
Hanlan said , "if jon will not row mo heio
you are not much of a champion. "
Beach piomptly icplied , "Hut lam cham
pion enough to beat j oil. It is a pltvwodld
not meet on the Thames , as I should have
liked to piovo to the British public ns to
winch is the best man. "
Ilanlan objected strongly to Beach saying
nasty things. Beacn replied that everything
he had said ho could substantiate and that
the strongest expression lie had ever used
was v'xyicn | calling him a. "gas bag. "
' 'Ho ' * * had called him' a gas bag
mvcausc no was a good hand at
binding. The discussion was cairlcd on
some little time longer , but bcfoio the pair
separated the Canadian acknowledged that
ho had been treated in a most handsome
manner In Australia and that many icmaiks
fo'i\xyjilch ho was held ie ponsiblo weio
totally untrue. After the race a
large , gathering assembled at Beach's quar
ters at the White Halt , at Baincs. Bejond
any amount of toasting nothing further
transpired between thccincks.
Subsequently , however , Hanlnn at the
Fox and Hounds at Putney Issued a chal
lenge to Beach , thus :
"I will row Beach on tlio Thames or Tyno
lor 500 a side and the championship of the
world , to take place within seven weeks of
signing of the articles. 1 hand the represen
tative of tlio Sportsman a fhst deposit of 100
as an earnest on my good faith , and
i will Do pleased to meet Beach
ot tlio Sportsman ofllco on Tuesday after
noon between 2 niul 3 o'clock to dinw up the
articles and make all arrangements. "
All sporting men seem unanimous that
nothing will come of this. Not a tew openly
say that Hanlan would never have come un
less convinced that Bench would not accept
any challenge to row on the Thames.
LOXDOTJ , Sept. 27. Kd ward Hanlnn has
challenged Beach to row a lace on tli9 Thames
for any sum up to S'AOOO and has olfoiedto
low in Ameilca or Australia , Hnnlan to give
Beach 810,000 in the former ca o nnd Beach
to give Hanlnn 610.000 In the latter. Beach
has declined nil challenges.
The boat race for 100 a hide between Lar-
gan and the Australian oaismen , Nielsen ,
took place to-day on the Thames , Putney to
