"It is with very much pleasure

Baron vou Plesson, German Min

ACTUAL WAR BEGINS.
An Elassona dispntch of April
18 snys: Tho Grpeks from all
their positions in tho Knryn dis
trict began tho advance toward tho
frontier at 7 o'clock on Friday
evening. Fighting lasted all that
night and extended on Saturday
to within ton miles of tho frontier.
It is estimated that 15,000 Greoks
were engaged. The battle con
tinued with great vigor through
out Friday night and Saturday,
wlion nltogetlfer 20,000 woro en
gaged. On Sunday morning tho firing
was concentrated toward tho
Southeast of Milouna. About noon
Sunday tho Greeks began to give
way after tho hottest fighting of
tho engagement. Tho Turks ad
vanced only a Iittlo beyond tho
froutior into Greek territory.
Considering tho rapidity of tho
firing and tho great expenditure
of ammunition, the numbor killed
is comparatively small, probably
Later news is that tho Turks
captured tho pass 01 Milouun.
BOMBARDMENT BY OREEKS.
Tho Turkish battory at Frevoso,
Gulf of Arta, wheroj according to
tho treaty of Berlin, tho Turks
had no right to erect fortifications,
fired on and sank tho Greek
steamer Macedonia, tho morning
of the 18th, while she was attempt

Tho crow of tho steamor was sav

cliptaiu was severely wounded.
Upon receipt of this uows tho
Greek Government sent orders to

to bombard Frovosa. Tho bom

tho Skafidaki batteries, which
wero ultacked by Groak war ships

Tho Now York Sun of tho 19th
has a special cable from London
which sayB: "Although scarcely
moro than forty-eight hours havo
elapsed since tho declaration of
war, a crisis seems to bo closo at
hand in tho fafat and furious cam
paign botwoon the Greek and Tur
kish armies. Tho bewildering
succession of ovonts along tho
whole lino of tho frontier demon
strates, first of all, that war here
after will bo a matter of days in
stead of months.
"The situation at tho presont
moment, roughly speaking, is
this: On tho wost coast and tho
frontier of Epirns, tho Greoks aro
carrying everything beforo them
and aro making a victorious in
vasion of tho enemy's couutry.
"Tho Turks, on the other hand,
have captured Milouna pass, which
is considered the koy of Larissa,
and tho Greek position there and
othor points in Thcssaly are in
tho gravest danger.
"It is impossible to dpny that
tho Turkish successes of yester
day and today iuvolve creat peril
to tho Greok causo. Tho loss of
Larissa meanB an open road to
Volo, and eventually to Athens,
and unless the Turkish advance is
speedily and decisively chocked
tho Greeks will havo Iittlo to hopo
"It is already argued in London
that Greece must retrieve today's
disaster by some such desperate
venture as attempting to forco tho
Dardanelles. All accounts agreo
that tho Turks aro fighting ovory
whore liko demons, aud tho
Greeks, although thoy aro out
numbered at most points, aro be
having with no less valor and
ATTITUDE OF THE TOWERS.
Continuing, tho Sun correspon
dent discusses "tho bearing of tho
situation toward that mighty
ovontuality universal war
which Lord Salisbury and Mr.
Balfour and othor European
statesmen havo beon telling tho
world for months would surely
come if what wo aro now witness
ing should happen. s Not ono of
theso men nor any of their follow
ers now protond that this alarm
was justified, or that war will pro
bably spread beyond tho two
Tho point principally dobated
is whether the war has broken out
in cousequonco of tho connivanco
of ono or moro of tho powers. "Tho
best judgment in this matter still
is," the correspondent says, "that
Emporor William is chiefly res
ponsible for tho Sultan's declara
tion of war boforo ho had become
convinced that tho powers wero
unwilling to continue to act as his
full allies against Greeco in the
matter of Oroto."
' Britain wus to proclaim hor
neutrality on tho 20th, and it was
expected that all the powers would
tako a position of gonuino neutra
lity in n few days at least. Never
theless, tho powerB aro discussing
tho quostion of how best to keep
the war within cortain limits of
territory. Thoro is said to be a
sharp difforonco of opinion bo
twoen the military powers, Russia,
Austro-IIungary and Germany,
nud tho mantimo powors, Great
Britain, Frnnco nnd Italy, ns to
tho most oxpeditious nud lonst
violent mothods of compelling a
cessation of hostilities should'this
result not bo reached by tho exor
cise of diplomatic prossuro nt
Athons nnd Constantinople. Tho
likolihood is that tho forco to bo

ItOW OENERAL WAR MIOHT COME.
Tli" New York Sun's corres
pondent alroncly ousted says:
"In regard to Crete itsojf tho
situation is peculiar, aud there is
uodefiuito indication of what tho
powers will do. It is an uudoubt
ed fact that tho greatest peril to
European w(-o would Ho in
Greek success in tho prosout con
flict. It is admitted in opinions
tolegiaphed to London tonight,
oven from Vienna and Berlin,
that tho failure of tho Turks iu
their war witL Greece would
mean tho immediato doom of tho
Ottoman empire.. That and that
alono is recognized as tho proba
blo causo of a general war. It is
likowise admitted that Europo will
not allow tho defo'at of Greeco to
rosult in any territorial penal
ties." THE QUEEN FOR PEACE.
It is reported at tho British
Foreign Ofiico, thnt a communica
tion from Lord Salisbury, after
his interviow on tho 19th with
Queon Victoria at Nice, supports
the theory that Britain is using
its utmost energy to have hostili
ties stop at tho stago now reached.
Franco, while deciding to con
tinue hor policy of nou-intorven-tiou,
will not consent to any es
sential alterations of the existing
territories of Turkoy nnd Greeco.
SLAVS WILL KEEP QUIET.
A St. Petersburg dispntch of
April 19 says: Referring to the"
formation of an alliance betwoou
Bulgaria, Sorvia and Mouteno
gro, it is semi-oflicially pointed
out today that the leoguo being
formed is not only for tho pro
tection of tho Govorumonta named
against Turkey and Austria, but
against Fan Hellonio aspirations
in tho Balkan peninsula. There
fore, it is added, Greece, is uuablo
to count upon any support in tho
prosout conflict from tho countries
indicated, nnd, moroover, their
respective Ministers havo positive
ly assured Russia that their Gov
ernments will maintain strict
LATEST FIGHTING NEWS.
Both tho Turks and the Greoks
wero resting on Monday from tho
tremendous exertions of Friday,
Saturday and Sunday. The troops
of Edhom Pasha woro half doad
with fatiguo aud hunger whon tho
firing slaokoned Sunday, night.
Most of thorn ilung themselves
down whoro they stood on tho
bare ground to sleep.
Tho fighting iu Milouna Pass
was of tho most stubborn aus
savago character. Tho Turkd
fought liko devils and tho Greeks
resisted iu the spirit of their an
cestors. Tho most inexplicable
fact in connection with tho whole
engagement is tho comparatively
small number of killed. All theN
special correspondents agreo ns to
this. Tho Turks nppenrod to hnvo
fired as widoly with their rifles at
Milouna Pass as they did at Arta,
whero the fighting consisted of an
artillery duel betwoou tho rival
batteries on each sido of tho river,
lastiug about four hours in tho
ufternoon. There thoy fired only
ono out of five shots with any
effect, and their batteries woro
soon silenced by tho Greoks,
whoso marksmanship was much
superior. Tho Turkish losses at
Aita aro bolioved to havo boon
very heavy. On tho Greek sido
thero was not n man killed.
The nows of this success at
Rovoni nud of the imminent fnll
of Provosa has changod tho dis
may caused at Athons by" tho loss
of Milounn into tho wildest ro
joicing. Tho lntes advices tonight
nro thnt tho Grook troops nro nd
vnnoing to rooccupy their posi
tions nt Milouna nud Gritzovuli,
tho latter of which, it is alleged,
wub abnndouod owing to a mis
understanding by tho Genorul in
command, who iutorprctod as an
ordor to rotroat what was really
iutuuded us au ordor to advance
Captnin Tngardo, who was
wounded at Gritzovuli, shot
himself to avoid falling into
tho bauds of tho Turks.
