Cablegrams. - ? TURKEY BACKS DOWN. AN UNCONDITIONAL WITH DRAWAL. LONDON, May 12. Fifteen British warships are sta tioned at Port Said in readiness to patrol the Snez Canal when the ulti matum expires. The Daily Telegraph's correspondent at Constantinople reports it is not believed that British warships will force the passage of the Dardanelles, though it is expected Turkish territory will be seized. The Porte's indifference is assumed J^order to create the impression, if h^nbds it absolutely necessary to con cede Great Britain's demands, that the subject is one of little importance. Sir Nicholas O'Conor, British am bassador at Constantinople, has sternly rejected the overtures made by Tewfik Pasha, Turkish Minister for Foreign Affairs, and insists on absolute com pliance with the British demands. Ferid Pacha, Turkish Grand Vizier, has submitted a slightly modified pro posal to Great Britain, The British ambassador stated that the demands put forward by Great Britain were the absolut...

Lefroy to re sign his position as councillor, by what Cr. Mansfield presumed wa£ unfair criticism passed by me on work, carried oat upder direction of Or. Lefroy. As I had only been a councillor a . few days when the Yankee Town well was cleaned out, X knew little of the manner or direction under which this work. was done, but when the account came up to be passed I objected to an item in the account for short ends of galvanised iron said to have been used to dam back running sand at the bottom of the well and below the present planking, stating that it was useless and should not have been done. The strongest criticism was passed yesterday by the council, who ordered the iron to be removed and re placed with planking, the work done in putting in iron being considered useless, and the well having again to be pumped right out to the b...

Competition was slightly irregular, but generally top priceB were secured. The number of bales sold for home consump tion was 90,000, for the Contin- nt 57,000, and for America 300, while 9,000 bales were held over. Medium and inferior wools, which were five per cent, higher till Monday, closed at par. Fine scoured is in ' strong request and shows an advance of five per cent.
