Still Making Furious Fight.
BUDAPEST, Nov. 2. A battle comparable with any in the world's
history was drawing to its close before the gates of Constantinople to
day. On both sids Bulgarian and Turkish nearly 500,000 men have
been engaged. Fighting began ten days ago and has raged almost con
tinuously ever since. The battle front was about thirty miles long at
first. Then it stretched to nearly one hundred. To-day it had narrowed

opinion of the best Judge to-day. The
persistency with which they have been
beaten ha shattered the general faith
in the Ottoman troops' prowess. New
