Just In time to frighten the merry-makers away from tbe Kings Highway a light re In began to fall last evening. Tbe result was that Omahans snd visitors did not swarm toward the scene of frollo as they would have done had the weathar been more propltloua Nevertheless, tbe Highway by no means was deserted. There were many that braved the elements to scatter con fetti over each other, to laugh and Jest, to Jolly and be Jollied. Ths high hopes of breaking tbe attendance record of UM8 have almost vsnished, but Ak-Sar-Ben s governors are not disooursged. There la yet time for many nights of Joy, un damped by the weeps of Jupiter. Tbe rain drove local oelebrators and visitors Indoors In large numbers. The aters largely were patronised.

Oct. 2 It Is re ported that on Saturday Admiral Aubrey was atiddenly ordered to postpone tne bombardment of Tripoli, as there were tinni nt a possibility of reaching an un derstanding with Turkey through the In tervention of oertaln powers, thus avoid ing a continuation of the war. Teav'a advices from Italy state that Deputy De Fellce-r.lusfrlda. who unlike h nther anclallnts favors an Itsiian oc cupation of Tripoli, has telegraphed the following from Agosta to the Serola at Milan: "A Turkish squadron transporting troone slunalled that It waa ready to make a desperate rKlnMnc in order to land men and ammunition on the Tripoli tan coast. A squadron belonging to the Italian second division Is reported chas ing the Turks and hoping to overtake them Sunday night or Monday ttoday.) "I learn from a truatworthy source that our shipa have begun the bombardment of Tripoli." BERLIN, Oct. 2 It was stated at the foreign office that although no offer of mediation had been made, the German ambassador at Constantinople, Baron Marsehall Von Bleberstein. was already working actively at the Turkish capital trying to effect a peaceful settlement be tween Italy and Turkey. reset Froposals Eas-ected. LONDON, Oot. 1 The outstanding1 feature of the Turko-ltallan war news today is the attempted mediation of Ger many, the success of which appears more provable in the light of the statement made at the German foreign office today that a report that the German ambassa dor at Constantinople had presented Italian proposals for pesce was "prema ture,'' indicating that such proposals were expected. Cable communication with Tripoli re mains cut off, but the city had not been bombarded up to Saturday midnight, ac cording to refugees arriving in Malta this morning. A dispatch from tbe Island of Corfu, .off the Albanian coast, says that two Turkish torpedo boats were sunk and a third ; captured off Gumeuitsa by the Italian patrolling Qeet. It Is reported from Malta that a Brit ish cruiser received a wireless dispatch saying that Tripoli bad been occupied by the Italians. , All Reports Censored, The Italian censorship is keeping the world In the darkness in regard y the progress of events In the Mediterranean. From Italy Itself, Turkey. Tripoli and the eas where the Italian navy Is operating, conflicting reports continue to come In One cablegram announced definitely that Tripoli had been bombarded and occupied Another said that Uiat no at tack on the city has been mad, It Is certain that the Italians had not at tacked the town up to midnight Satujr day. The reports as to the situation at Fre veaa are equally conflicting. Turkish offi cials here confirm a news di&patch which says that the forts had been destroyed and 1,800 troops landed, while Italy gives an emphatic denial of the report, saying that the Italian government had no In tention of reaortlng to acts against the territorial status of Turkey and Europe. Europe Is greatly relieved at the re ceipt of news that Turkey has assured Greece that It has no Intention of at taoklug It as had been rumored. The suc cess o ft he Italian blockade of the Trip oli coast from Tunis to Egypt and its scouring o ft he seas la shown In the arrival of two csptured Turkish trans ports at Taranto and Brldlst respectively. The Impression prevails that the hos tilities will be of brief duration. It Is believed that Turkey, finding taelf unable to dspatch troops to Tripoli, will acoept the mediation of Germany.
