with Mr. Bikelis, head nf tho

among other things says:
"Tho roal war on tho eastern
coast of Greece has not bogun. The
Greeks have fallen back in good
order and hold the position at
Pharsala. This is not relatively
stronger than the ono at Larissa.
No real defense can bo made until
tho Greeks establish themselvos

Fraueo is opposed to the Turks
holding one inch of what is right

Despite optimistic views held
in certain quartors in Athens, tho

A comparison between tho com

by tho Enghth correspondents,
reveals the strength of tho Tur- '
kish force and tho weakness of tho
Greeks. It is a fresh illustration
of Count von Moltke's saying,
that an army goes upon its belly.
It is believed that tho sudden
advanco of the Turks in Epirus is
due to the apprehension that tho
powers will Boon insist upon an
armistice, in which case the

this morning by a represontativo
of tho Bulletin. Tho General
looks well and hearty and says he
enjoyed his trip immensely. He
had no information on tho question
of annexation and tho prospers
of the treaty to givo out beyond
what has already appeared in dis
patches from Washington iu the

A private letter from Sou Fran

"Thoro is nothing much of im

tion of tbo treaty. Old Clous ,
Spreckels has shown his hand,
and is agV us to beat tho band,

"On tho subject of Hawaii I am
opposed to annexation for many
good reasons. As to tho abroga
