AH the dlapatrhe received today Indicate
that the revolution III Macedonia is spread

late ta aa outbreak covering a consider
able area In the Adrianople vilayet, where
the li:urgenta captured Vaailiko. taking
tha chief Turkish rasldenta prisoners to the
Bulgarian frontier, where they liberated
them. Tha Turkish, officials, fearing to
return ta VaaiUko, sought the protection of
tha Bulgarian authorities,' who aent them
to a betel In Burgee, where they are at
liberty to remain or depart.
Tha insurgents burned the villages behind
Vaelllco and attacked a Turkish military
post at the monastery of Elijah, south of
Tirnovo. Tha eastern part of tha Adrian
ople vilayet la a mountainous region and
tha villages are few and scattered, Tha
strength of tha Insurgents la unknown.
It la thought tha outbreak ia not an
organised movement, but Intended as a
diversion ta draw tba Turkish troops from
tha other districts. Tha peculiar danger
of tha latest frontier outbreak lays In its
proximity to the Bulgarian frontier, thua
creating situation long foreseen and
dreaded by tha Bona government. The
Turks are now certain to sand considerable
forces to this territory, which will necessi
tate tha atrengthenlng of tba Bulgarian
troops along tha frontier. With the two

Before presenting tha Panama canal
treaty to the Colombian aenata President
My government Is confronted with this
dilemma: either our sovereignty must suffer
detriment . or we must renounce certain
pecuniary advantages, to which In U4
opinion of many we neve a right: or we
must vigorously maintain our sovereignty
and claim In a peremptory manner the
pecuniary Indemnity to which we consider
In the first case,, by consenting to tha
diminishing of our authority and not as

canal should be opened through the Pan
ama iFlhtnus the Just desire of the in
habitants of that department and of all
Colombians and also the goveramo.it
would be satisfied, but the government
would be exposing Itself to having the
charge brought against It later that It did
not duly defend our sovereignty and that
it sacrificed the Interest of the nation.
In the second case, ahould the canal not
be opened through Panama the govern
ment will be reproached with not having
allowed Colombia to obtain that advantage
which is considered an essential condition
of our aggrandisement.
T have already expressed my desire that
the Interoceanlc canal be opened througrt

strengthen and widen our relations with
them which will result in an Immeasurable

Happily for me, the responsibility must

last evening with Its usual big attendance.
In the absence of President Callahan.
Vice President Forbes occupied the chlr,
and In the ahoence of St .relary Monroe,

John F. Daly of the Prospect Hill Im
provement club addressed the club. He
enjoined upon all members, while looking
for tha general goad of the city, to at the
same time adorn and beautify their own
premises in order that their example may
be followed by others. He thought that
the city prisoners should be put to work
cutting weeds on the streets. The weeds
should be cut in any event before the
opening of school.
The streets and lights committees sub
mitted short verbal reports to the effect
that certain needed street croeslnga were
to be laid shortly as a result of the com
mittee's work. Promises were made tha
lights committee that new lights would
be placed at needed points as soon as the
light companies could get to It.
The park committee submitted a verbal
report, and also that It had prepared fifty
petitions for distribution among the mem
bers of the club to obtain signatures
thereto regarding the proposed park near
Prospect HU1. The petition reads aa fol
lows: To the Honorable Mayor and City Coun
cil of the City of Omaha: Gentlemen We
the undersigned citizens of Omaha, appre
ciating the necessity of a public place of
recreation in the northwestern part of the
city, and realising that the financial con
dition of our city is such that further
purchase of park property at this time
would be unwire. and as a tract of land
comprising thirty-two arras, especially
adaptable for park purposes, sltusted be
tween Parker and Lake, and Thirty-second
snd Thirty-fourth streets, can be ob
tained by a lease of ten years of the Byron
Reed ' company, the only consideration
asked is that said tract be exempt from
taxation, we respectfully petition your
honorable body to take the neceessry
measures to acquire said tract aa proposed
at your earliest convenience.
These petitions will, when the lists are
filled, be aubmltted to the city council
with the request for Immediate action.
Issue was taken with the communication
of Mr. Cornish relative to his opposition
to the Prospect Hill park proposition which
waa recently published In the city papers.
