IPy Cable to The Trlbune ;
London, Oct S.?The war perU ts if
nr.ything -*>-rse to-day. The perslstent
lack of news all day rrom the Balkans
ls slgniflcant, and the carefully worded
reference to the crteis made hy Pre
mler Asqulth ln addressitrR hie eonstit
uents thls afternoon shows that Europe
ls posslbly wlthln a halr's breadth of h
general confliigration.
The ipeechea from the throne at thf
openlng of the extraordlnary eessions
of the Servlan and Hulgarian parlla
rients show there has been no cessa
tlon ln the preparations for war.
The Servian army, it ls expected, Wlil
ll fully mobllized to-day. whlle those
of Bulgaria. Greece and Montenegro ;
fflj reach a slmilar state of readlness
wilhin a day - r two.
Turkey by meana of a strict cen
lorship has kept her preparations
quite secret.
The powers have indueed the Balkan j
itates not to recall their mlnlsters from ;
Constantlnople for the present, whlch \
ls regarded as one polnt in favor of !
NotorouB Brigend Active.
Kandasky. the notorious Bulgarlan
brlgand, ls reported to have croseed the
Turkish frontler with 2,900 men, oc
cupied the passage of Kresna over the
river Btruma and burned the Turkish
larracks at Oschumaya. Sandasky le
one of the numerous brlgand chlefe
??v_o came in from the mountalns on
the re-establlshment of the constitution
ln 190S.
He ls of medlum height and of
Dieagre appcarance, and resembles a
v. arllke preacher rather than a moun?
tain freebooter. Hls most famouH ex
j-lolt waa the kidnapplng of Mlse Stone,
the American misslonary. and holdlng
her for raneom ln 1903. Sandasky was
responslble for iiomc of the most horri
lle outrages during the Macedonlan
-troclties, when thoueand-s were raur
dered by hiB orders. He is reputed to
have committed more than three hun?
dred murders wlth hls own hands.
The European eteam roller le moving
but elowly, and there is llttle evldence
of a dennite agreement among the pow?
ers alth regard to Jolnt action. Mr.
Asqulth eays the powers are worklng
together ln loyal co-operatlon for the
rraservation of peace. but In Parla it
ls feared that the understandlng haa
been come to too late, whlle lt le be?
lleved ln Berlln that England ia holdlng
back out of regard for Turkey.

able calamity of war" mlght be

?nat could be done was belng done to
prevent euch an immeasurable catas

tlme the international horizon had not
worn euch a threatening aspe< t.
''ears are now entertained not so
much of an attack on Turkey by the
confederates as of Turkish milltary
Initiatlve. Turkey is maesing troops on
