r BELGRADE, Nov. 18. The Turkish fortress of Monastlr sur
rendered this afternoon to the Servian troops. Fifty thousand Turkish
soldiers and three generals laid down their arms.
Monastir had been virtually surrounded by Servian troops for sev
eral days whil Greek troops coming from the south have cut off their
line of retreat to Ochrida. On Saturday the Servian troops, after des
pertte fighting throughout the day and night, succeeded in capturing 1wo
important heights commanding the city. They then advanced through
the morasses onto the inner fortifications, which surrendered to-day.
tuiKlSH MINISTER FIRST TO
HAND OVER SWORD.
Wit possession of the heights com
manding Monastlr by the Servian army
under Croim Prince Alexander ren
dered the fortress untenable.
Fethl Paaha, former Turklah Minister
to Belgrade, was one of the first to
hand over ihta sword. At the begin
ning of the war ho made the remark:
We will noon Invite our frlenda to itin

It waa thought that the Turkish
troops would bo able to stand a

of the aoldlera were reservists who
had been only recently called back to

Although not more than a dozen per

rumor that he wa.i ronflncd there
caused a fe.v young east flders to do
little sleuthing. They visited Yonkers,
looked over the sanitarium and have
been telling stories of absorbing Inter

One report is that "Bl Tim," the soul

as a "restraining sheet." tied down to

The reports coming from those wno

that "lllg Tim," while mentally unbal
anced, Is still possessed of all his old
physical vigor. Whether he Is given to
spells of violence is not known, but 'tis
friends snv that lie la gentle, even when
under tlie spell of his mania, which
takes the form of belief that voices
are following his through the air.
Investigation to-day of imn of the
statements current In "Big Tim's" old
haunts show that Dr. O, V. If, Bond,
the head of the Hunltariuin, hax been
confined to his bed by a severe Illness
for weeks. He was alck when Sullivan

They were six solemn hours for the gangsters. First while their
lawyer was pleading with the Jury to believe their story that they wer
innocent decoys of the arch-plotters Rose, Webber, Vallon and Schepp;
and then later on when Assistant District-Attorney Moss described thei i
a dangerous thugs and gunmen who prowl the metropolis hungry ft

Mr. Wahle brought In the name of the

In the opinion of many YVuhle muds i

his manner of discourse and dlssectsd
the evklence with careful logic.
Vhl did not attempt to (It out his

Mr. Moss demanded from the Jury a

was
"I speak these words to you upon the
