SOFIA. Bulgaria, Aug. 19. Premier Pet

the situation In Macedonia. He believes

When interviewed today he discussed the
condition of affairs frankly and at length.
Regarding the reports that Bulgaria was
responsible for the outbreak he pointed out
that the center of the disturbed area Is
noarly 200 miles from the Bulgarian fron
tier and is separated from it by a country
largely Inhabited by Turks. "Conse
quently," he said. "It is foolish to say that
the movement Is aided by bands from Bui
garia and It is equally unreasonable to
suggest that the Insurgents' ax ma came
from Bulgaria." j
Rebel Qeuaa Froaek Made.
He asserted that as a matter of fact the
guns -t-ed by the Insurrectionists are all
of French manufacture and that most of
them were bought from Turkish officers
and men who, receiving no pay, had re
torted to the sale of their guns and am
munition to cbtaln money. The Insurrec
tion was entirely a national Macedonian
movement organised by the Macedonian
central oommittee, which in Itself was
proof of the ahocklng condition of affairs

The situation In the . unhappy village
had teen rendered more desperate by the
refusal of the Turks to permit the unem

Little excitement or enthusiasm la evi

A Lot of New
A visitor made the remark yesterday:
"I never saw such a lot of tough-looking,
TTfellk vagons In my life as they have hcrv
In Omaha. I visit quite a lot of eastern,
as well as western cities, and notice tho
difference, but I never oaw as many
ecraggy-looklng, dilapidated, dirty wagons
anywhere for a city cf Crnaha's size. Of
course, I see a few of the good ones down
town, but so very few. I should think
people would kick about It and refuse to
buy milk. Omaha certainly needs about 60
new wagons cn the street, and If I was
Drummond I would build a few samples
before quitting burlness, Just to show them.
I've seen soma fine milk wagons from
