Berlln. Oet. ?>.?A general war In the

the Montenegrin declaratlon of war
had created a new sltuatlon whlch waa
declsive for Servla'a further action.
The solldarity of the Balkan allles

the government to depart from the

Reports That Bulgaria and Servia Had

[By ('able tr. The Trlbune. I I
London, Oct. 10.?The main force of
the Montenegrin army attacked the
Turks yesterday morning, Prince Peter,
the youngest son of King Nlcholas, flr
ing the flrst shot at the Turkish posl?
tlon on the hills opposlte, and the band
meanwhile piaying the royal hymn. An
artillery duel eneiied along the whole
line. After half an hour the Turks
were compelled to retreat from thelr
flrst posltlon at Mount Slanlntza. By
noon the whole mountaln had been
evacuated. Tho Montenegrlns, cov
ered wlth guns, advanced to attack the
strongly fortlfled mountaln of Letch
Itch, commandlng the road to Scutari.
The Turks at 2 o'clock yesterday af?
ternoon landed troops on the ahore of
Lake Scutari, near the frontler. A bat?

Statements clrculated yesterday that
Bulgaria and Servia had eommenced
hostilities were not conflrmed and were
discredited in the best Informed quar?

that the receptlon of the note of the
powers at Sofia, Belgrade and Athens,
whlle qulte courteous and correct, glves
llttle reason for bellevlng that Bul?

duced to refraln from war. In the two
former cupituls the vlew Is expressed
that the action of the powers has come
too late, now that the armies are fully
mnhlllzed. Orece. of course, will fol

lleved that more than a day or two
