SHOWS FIGHT YET
Rejects Balkan Terms for Ar?
mistice, Allies' Overtures
Being Declared by Grand
Vizier "Impossible."
DIPLOMATISTS SURPRISED
Porte's Decision Likely to Re?
sult in More Determined Re?
sumption of Hostilities,
with Constantinople
as Objective.
Constantinople, Nov. 21.?The battle
it the Tohataldja line? has been re?
sumed. Cannonading was reopened
with pro it violence this evening and Is
plainly audible here.
It is reported that a Greek squadron
has landed troops and taken posses?
sion of the inland of Mytllene. No re?
sistance was met with, the weak Turk?
ish fjerrleon retiring into the interior.
?t is reported that an attack from
the rear on the Dardanelles forts, with
the ec-pperatlon of the Greek fleet try?
ing to force the straits, seems immi?
nent.
?ble to The Trlhuni? 1
London, Nov. 21!.? Turkey is deter?
mined to continue the war rather than
agree to B ?'.?aria's conditions for an
armistice. The reason put forward for
Turkey:s refusal to negotiate is that
the terms proffered by the allies w? r<>
too harsh, but it may also be assumed
with a fair degree of accuracy that the
result of the three days' fighting at
T'r.utaluja has not been without its
effect on Turkish policy.
Kiamil Pacha, the Grand Vizier, de
,1 that the nllies' overtures were
"Impossible." He ordered the com
der in chief to continue fighting.
"with th< !i. Ip of the Almighty,'' until
.1 moderate conditions
un. proponed.
This decision cam?' as an utter sur?
prise, and diplomats are not wholly
convinced that the Ottoman troops will
really tak" Up MTOM again in the chol
~ken tranches of Tchataldja.
While the- Bulgarian condition? (for
Bulgaria is acting as the mouthpiece
for the allies) wer?' extreme, stipulat?
ing the surrender of Adrianople and
Bcutari both of which strongholds are
?taking An historic defence, as well as
the caneton of all the territory except a
narrow ??trip above Constantinople,
these condition! were advanced as
overture?'; In oth^r words, they were
Ipparently put forward aa a basis for
negotiations. |
To See the Enemy's Hand.
The Port?- treated them as an ulti
rhape being the Oriental
1 of beginning negotiations, de- i
?gned to Induce the cncaij further ta
show his hand. A Balkan diplomat In
London pointed out last night that
OV m termj erare submitted merely as
an sneirer to Turkey's pressing and re?
heated demand* for an armistice, and
?tfd:
"It hi practically certain that their
rejection will result in a more active
and determined resumption of hostili?
ties Piohably the allied troops will
new r. fuse to treat with Turkey until
they are in a position to dictate per?
haps sterner tejTBM in the capital of
the fiultan.''
The negotiations thus far have been
conducted through the Russian Am- '
bassador In Constantinople, but the
Turkish Ambaas&dor In Berlin, Osman
N'lzaml Pacha, waa on his way to Join
his colleagues appointed to meet the
Bulgarian representatives when the
Iharklsh government's startling deci?
sion was trlesrraphed abroad.
Hope for Compromise.

Turkish officials have not abandoned

OLDEST BRITISH SKULL
Discovery Ranks Probably with
the One of Heidelberg.
?By <'?ble to Tne Tribun.-.]
London, Nov. 21.?A prehistoric dis?
covery which is likely to call forth even
more discussion than the alleged prime?
val paintings in Bacon's Hole ha? Just
been made public. A scientist living
in Sussex has discovered in an old river
bed in the eastern inland part of the
county a skull which, from its forma?
tion and place of discovery, is believed
to be by far the oldest ever found in
this country.
T'p to this time what is known as the
Ipswich skull was believed to be the
oldest, but if all the finder claims be
true the Sussex skull will prove the
senior by about a thqusand years. The
bones are very much thicker than in
the skull? of modern men, and. though
found in fragments, it is believed that
the discovery forms part of the bones
of a man who lived in an antiquity so
remote that no expert cares to put a
figure to it.
It is claimed for it, however, that it
certainly dates from the be^lnnln* of
I the pleistocene period, seeing that the
bones were lying close to the bones of
one of the most ancient types of
elephant.
The skull belongs, roughly, to the
same age as the famous Heidelberg
skull, and resembles a Neanderthal
specimen, though belonging to a much
lower and more primitive tyjn? of man?
kind.
DROPS BALKY_AUJO IN BAY
Owner Tires of $4,500 Car,
with $2,000 Repair Bill.
San Francisco, Nov. 21.?Obeying the
orders of his employer, H. H. Hart, of
Oakland, James Litz. a chauffeur, ran a
$4..TOO automobile off the rear of a
1 ferryboat in San Francisco Hay yester
i day. Hart's desire to "drown" the of
I fending automobile was reached after
it had rolled up a repjilr bill amount?
ing to $2.(XH). Yesterday he callud lita
into his library.
"Take that car out and lose it," he
said.
"I can't lose it," replied Ltts; "it's
too well known. Somebody would And
It and bring it back again."
"Then sink it In the middle of the
bay," said Hart.
For the first time in weeks the car
ran smoothly to the ferry station and
was driven aboard the boat. LIU
asked the mate to show him the deepest
spot in the harbor. When the bofct
reached the designated placo LttS
stealthily ran the car to th? vessel
apron. Then he pulled wide the throt
i tie and l-aned to the deck. The auto?
mobile splashed Into the bay.

'wife of Robert S. Olvlns. a member of
1 Chicago's fashionable set. to-day dis?

Chicago, Nov. 21.?Alderman Pretzel
caused hi? fellow member? to fore?
swear the use of baker's bread to-day,
when he presented his report of a spe?
cial committee'? Investigation of hake
shop conditions. General lack of sani?
tary condition? was the gist of the re?
port. Several bakeries, however, were
said to have almost ideal precaution?
against dirt.
The finding of a ?tray dog asleep on a
pile of loave? was one of the details of
the Pretzel report. The proprietor of
the bakery where the dog was found
said that he did not know when the
animal came in. The dog was driven
out, but the bread on which he had
been lying was loaded on delivery

Mr. (Joldlzer said.

nied by the official* here. A careful
search Of tho records of tho courts

h..".
opposition to bla consecration as a
bishop by tho Kpiscopal Diocese of
Albany was made on the ground that
Dr. Silver had been .divorced in Omaha
while ho was a.chaplain in the army.
[By lelaiBBph to Th? Tribune 1
Albany, Nov. Ul.?Hishop Coadjutor
Nelson said to-night that the Informa?
tion on which the Albany Episcopal
diocese convention acted in refusing
consent to the consecration of the Rev.
i Dr Silver as Bishop of Kansas came
, from the authorities of the Kansas
Diocese, but he did not know in what
place Dr. Sliver obtained his divorce.
Hishop Nelson added:
When a man Is elected a bishop In the
1 Kpiscopal Church It is necoaaary for him
to get the consent of the other bishops
and other dioceses before he can be con?
secrated- When the standing committee
of this dloceee was lirst called upon to act
in th*i election or Dr. Silver It readily
gave its consent. Hut Isith Hlshop Doane
and myself later received word from the
authorities of the Kansas Diocese that
Dr. Silver was a divorced man, und placed
the Information before the committee,
which then rescinded Its action and re?
fused its consent to the consecration of
Dr. Silver.
! i .? diocesan convention yesterday cor?
dially approved the action of the com?
mittee, but. because some members felt
that Dr. Silver should be spared, the
resolution adopted by the convention was
worded so that It did not mention his
name.
Under our dru law In case of a di?
vorce the Innocent party Is allowed to
remarry, but because of the tenets of
the Kpiscopal Church In reference to
divorce both Bishop Doane and I, as
well ah the members of the committee,
did not feel It advisable to sanction the
election of a cl-ncyman as bishop who
was party to a divorce, even though be
were unfortunate enough to be forced to
divorce his wife. We felt It would not
be in line with the Church's opposition

Although WcOdroW Wilson failed to
become a beneficiary under the pro?
visions of the Carnegie Foundation far
the Advancement of Teaching, a little
more than four years hence he will no
doubt become ejhjlhto for a S.'.I.OCH) an?
nual income pruv cd for ex-President?
of the United States by the Carnegie
Corporation of New York at its annual
meeting held yesterday at Mr. Car
negle'a home, in Fifth avenue.
According to the announcement made
lftflt night by the trustees ?if the cor?
poration the annual Income will go to
"future*' ex-Presidents, so Theodore
Rooeerett, though he may not need 'he
money, will not become a beneficiary.
Mr. Taft, 1 owever, may avail himself
of the opportunity should he see fit.
The announcement made by James
Bertram, who is Mr. Carnegie's secre?
tary and one of the trustees of the cor?
poration, was:
Provision has been made through the
corporation for a pension for ?ach fut?
ura ax-President of the United States,
or hi? widow unmarnad, of $25,000 psr
annum as long as these remain unpro?
vided for by the nation? that they may
be able to spend the latter part of their
lives devetinq their unique knowledge
gained ef public affaire to the public
free from pecuniary cares. These pen?
sion? will b.n promptly offered to the
ex-Presidents or their widows, so thBt
no application will be required from
them.
No authorized mention "as mad? of
the matter other than was contained
in the foregoing announcement,
Mrs. Orover Cleveland, who is eOOO
to marry Professer Tin ?mas .1. Pres?
ton, and the widow of President Har?
rison are the only two widows of
former Presidents of th*? Catted Stat. I
who are alive. Neither of them, under
the conditions of the Foundation, would
benefit by the f'arnegle provision.
Heard Taft Diicuss Problem,
Andrew Carnegie sat near President
Taft at the dinner of the Lotos Club
on HOlUIdaJl Bight, When the President
dlacuoaed in a focooa vein the pcobleaa.
of what the country should do with it
ex -Presidents.
He waa not sure. Mr. Taft said, that
the Osier method of administering
chloroform might not make a iltting
end "to one who had held the highest
olflco." "It would relieve the country."
he said, "from the burden of thinking
how he Is to support himself and his
fan.lly." I>ater. in discussing the Pres?
idential office !n a more serious vein,
the President referred to the salary,
saying:
"I consider that the President of the
T'nited States Is well paid. The aalarv
by no means measures the contribu?
tion to his means of living which the
generosity of Congress has afforded,
and unless it Is the policy of Congress
to enable him in his four years to save
money enough to live in adequate dig?
nity and comfort thereafter, then the
salary is all that it ought to be."
Perhaps the remarks of the President
set Mr. <'arneKle to thinking, and the
thoughts r suited in his announcement
of last night.
