J , ben of his family. The Informers were the man's

3r not named the Emperor, but who were supposed

London, May 5. Tho story of tho Ignomini
ous campaign in Eplrus had been rather lost
sight of ln view of the greater disaster which
overwhelmed the Oreek arms last week tn Tlicn
aalr. Tho modern literature of war contains no
sadder records than that of the causeless rout
of these two Greek armies armies of bravo
men sacrificed by cowardly fools whose monu
mental Incompotonco for leadership Is almost
beyond bollef. It Is the marvel of Europe to
dar, not that the success of the Turks has bcon
so overwhelming, but that Greece should have
invited a war which she never had the remotest
chance of winning, and which has brought hor,
not to honorable defeat, but to disgrace and
humiliation. Even the fancied demoralization
and Impotenco of the Turks do not account for
the blind folly which Induced the Greek Govern
ment to send Its troops to tho frontier ln
charge of gold-lacod popinjays whose only
preparation for the stem business of war was a
liberal education In ballroom manoeuvres.
It Is unjust and tho story of tho Greek re
verses tn Eplrus makes it clear how unjust to
impute to the rank and file of the Greek troops
the cowardice and stupidity which their officers
have displayed since almost tho beginning of tho
campaign. The common soldiers and their
minor leaders have fought bravely and well
whenever ther had opportunity. Tho Invasion
of Eplrus, as all the world knows, began bril
liantly and successfully. A strong foothold was
gained ln Turkish territory, and the enemy re
tired defeated from many a hotly contested posi
tion. Then began the blundering, the obvious
incomprehensible blundering, of the Greek com
manders. Tho correspondent of tho Times
with the Greek army on the Eplrus frontier de
scribes clearly and comprehensively how ther
lost all that they had gained, and more. Writing
on Sunday and Monday last from Patras, ho
In my last telegram I described tho Oreek ad
vanced position on the spur commanding both
the main Janlna road on the left and the old
rood via Penteplghadla on the right. Fronting
this position Is a deep depression, along the
bottom of which a cross track joins theso two
roads. On tho right of the spur abovo the
Penteplghadla road rises a steep mountain, on
the summit of which tho Greeks have posted
two guns and some infantry commanding tho
spur and Penteplghadla fort. The Oreeks are
holding this spur and tho mountain, which Is a
very strong position, being out of rango of tho
mountains on the front and on the left, and
secure from attack on those sides.
The determined attack of 4,000 Turks on tho
right of this position on Wednesday should
havo shown the Greeks the urgent need of
strongly reinforcing this, which is practically
the key of Janlna, but the commanders, repeat
ing the mlstako which caused tho disaster of
Penteplghadla on April 23, left this vital posi
tion held by a handful of men who were unsup
ported. Anticipating a f urthor Turkish attack, I rode
on Thursday morning from my camp on tho
ridge, whero Major Papayanopoulo, with 1,000
infantry and eight guns, held another similar
strong position, to a battery on the spur one
hour up the pass. On reaching the spur I was
amazed to find there only two guns nnd 600
Evzoncs, whllo on the mountain on the right
there were only two hill guns, trt o companies of
Evzones, one company of Infantry, and about 200
volunteers, all the men being weary after five
days' fighting with scant rations and bard work
on the mountains. It is true that between the
mouth of the pass and the advance post, seven
hours distant, the Greeks bad 0,500 men and
thirty guns posted ln well-selected and strong
positions at Kanopoulo and Kumuzades, the
ridge where Major Papayanopoulo commanded,
and other smaller intermediate posts, but to
send reinforcements up such a rugged country,
more especially up the mountain on our right,
was a question of time, so that the positions
might bo raised br the Turks before the sup
ports could arrive a fact which the Greek com
manders apparently could not realize.
Iremalnodall the morning with the Evzones
and tho guns on the spur. Nothing occurred
except Intermittent firing on the Turks on tho
opposite rldgo and on the mountain across the
Janlna road, where the Turks were burning
peasants' houses and posting small guns to fire
on us without effect, while our mountain in
fantry and guns exchanged fire with the Turks
on the right.
It seetnod as if nothing would be done this
day, but suddenly, at 4:15 P. M.. a tremendous
fusillade broke out on the right, obviously from
a large force of Turks, hidden from our view by
the mountain, who were attempting to scale ana
storm that commanding poiltlon. I realized
that so fierce an attack on the handful of Greeks
might drive them out, but not that this one
blow would throw all the Eplrus army into a
temporary condition of hopeless panlo and lose
for Greece In one night all tho positions gained
since the opening of the campaign.
The Turks without intermission till B P. M.
kept up aterriflo fire on tho Greek mountain
Sosltlon. Over 0,000 of tho enemy, having
escended the rldgo, crossed the valley and
gradually scaled tho mountain, which, is not very
steep on that side, availing themselves of tho
cover afforded by bushes and rocks. Tho firing
was rapid and continuous, and tho roar of mus
ketry grew louder and louder as the enemy ap
proached. The Turks, in making this deter
mined and well-planned attack, must buvo
Buffered heavily from tho fire of the Greeks on
tho mountain, but, advancing thus from tho
further Bide, they wero not exposed to tiro from
the guns and infantry on tho spur, where men
waited, taking no part in the fight and oxposed
to a dropping rain of Turkish bullets passing
over the mountain.
After twenty minutes of this fire I realized
that things wore going badly with the Greeks,
whoso tiro from the mountain gradually slack
ened, while the Turkish fire grew ever florcer and
ever nearer. The two Oreek guns on tho moun
tain fired not one shot afterthe fusillade opened,
and thon. to my amazement, the two guns on the
spur limbered up and were taken down the road,
though a large number of Turks appeared on the
ridge facing us. opening musketry fire on us
within easy range of our guns, which would
havo punished them severely.
At 5 I. M. tho Greek fire on tho mountain
ceased. We saw our men streaming down the
slopes and down tho valley In flight. Then tho
Turks appeared swarming on the summit and
loudly cheering, the bugloa sounding the "Ceoso
The mountain taken, our position on tha spur
became untenable, as the enemy above could
pour a most destructive rlflo firo on us, und wero
beginning todo so when at 0:lotbe order was
given to retreat. Another correspondent and I
left tho spurwlth the 000 Evzones, not following
the road by which wo came, as that was exposed
to the tire of the Turks, but taking thorough
track under tho crest of the ridge.
Tho Evzones did not retreat hurriedly when
they saw the position was lost; and showed no
symptoms of panlo, but walked off down the
pass slowly with angry looks and ln silence, save
a few youngsters who, being over-fatigued and
half starved, with nerves unstrung after con
tinuous outpost fighting for five days, fell Into a
sort of hysterical fury.
So far as I could see, the Greeks In the fight
behaved wo I. The handful left thus unsup
ported on the mountain, had they been tho
etcadlost troops in tho world, could not have
withstood that fearful fuslllado, but the good
conduct of tho men in front makes the subse
quent behavior of the rest of the army who
were not under fire all tbo more Inexplicable,
and why tbo guns were taken out of action as
soon as the Turks attacked, none can explain.
In a later message, tho same correspondent
tells how the Greek rout, unnecessary In tho
beginning, became general and complete:
A longer and stranger retreat la before us
than I contemplated when leaving the spur. I
thought that the Oreeks, driven from the ad
vanced post, would fall back on tho next strong
ly held position, an hour off, where my tent was
pitched, and that the rout would there end, but
my companion and I, having loft the Evzones to
cross the gap on the left and reach the camp,
were amazed to find the eight guns and 1,000
Sixty men, the last of the retreating force,
were now straggling up and an officer succeeded
ln rallying them. Drawn up ln line, they fired
a few volleys at a number of Turks following
along tho road and bill.
We loaded our mule with our property under a
warm Turkish fire, and just before we moved off,
the Turks being near us, the Greek lino broke
and the men straggled down the pass again.
The Turks followed, cheering and firing, but
narkness fell and tho pursuit apparently onded.
Looking back, we saw houses blazing and the
Turks firing them as they advanced.
AtOP. M., on reaching Kumuzades, I found
the 3,000 men ln that strong position also gone
to swell this extraordinary rout, taking oft the
six guns. Apparently no stand was being made
any where, tnt wjaolo army crumpling up ith
out firing a shot. Wo entered Kumuzades to
collect our servants nnd baggage, whence tho
terrified villagers carrying their proporty de
scended tho pass with us to cscapo tho Turks,
who, as the burning houses a mllo oil showed,
were still close on our litols. It was a very dark
night, so that our progress was slow along the
rough track, whoro for hours wo mot no one, wo
being tho lost, nnd tho rotroatlng panlc-strlckon
troops being far nhoad of us. .
About midnight, when wo nnd our mournful
procession of villagers overtook the routed army
and rodo along tho rood crowded with troops of
all arms, thoro was utter confusion and no
order, the packed mass of men tumbling on
through the darkness with no hurry, but Blowly
nnd silently, for It wns a strango panlo which
had seized tho army, sullen with no oxcltomcnt
ln It seemingly, a stubborn determination not to
fight, urging men townrd Arta in n sluggish but
irreslstlblo ware. Officers, too, their reglmonts
melted away, walked on vtlth a gloomy, shamed
expression, qulto unablo to get their men ln
Then we reached Kannponlo, at tho mouth of
tho pass, tho headquarters of Col. Botzarl, sco
ond ln command, nnd our fourth strong position,
whoro a largo force of Infantry and cavalry, with
clghtocn guns, wero statlonod n few hours
enrllor. Hern wa found Col. Ilotzari and his
BtafT vainly attempting to check tho rout and
mako n stand, whllo tho disorderly mass of
thousands of soldiers wore halting In hesitating
fashion. Wo stayed awhllo watching. ItBCcmcd
at first that military dlsclpllno would prorall,
and tho men fell in as ordered, but not for long,
for, first Individually and then ln larger and
larger groups, thoy drifted oft ngaln toward
Arta, and soon tho wholo army rolled away In a
Btillcn stream, as before, swollen now by acces
sions from dlltcrcntposts on tho way, numbering
qulto 7,000 men.
Riding on, I found, mingling with tho troops,
tho scared Inhabitants of nil tho villages on tho
lino of retreat, who, fearing Turkish rcngeanco
for having lont asslstanco to tho Oreoks, wero
fleeing to Artu. Thero wero thousnnds of men,
women, nnd children, with their property in
3 rent bundles on their backs, staggering along,
riving limncnso numbers of cattle, sheep, nnd
?;onts ooforo them, bo thnt tho narrow road
n places was packed with n rolling mass
of terror-maddened creatures, bellowing,
bleating, and leaping over each other nnd
trampling on and killing ono another. With
tho villagers It was littlo bettor.with the cries
of paronts who had lost their children and of
children who had lost their parents, tho fow
lanterns carried by somo cnstlng a fceblo light
hero and there on tho weird nnd painful sceno.
whllo ns wo slowly drifted on tho lurid glnro of
their hurnlng homes behind reminded tho poor
people of all they had Inst.
At half past 2 In the morning wo reached Artn
Bridge, vhero was n great block of cannon
wagons, nrtlllcry. cavalry, Infantry, nnd vil
lagers crowing tho narrow roudwny, for all tho
positions had been nhandoned in this reasonless
jinnlc, nnd thero woro no Greeks on tho right
bank of tho Arochthos by dawn. Troops had
poured ln from FUIppiadn, so that 11,000 men
v 1th forty guns, who had mado n successful raid
IntoTurkoy and strongly established themselves,
wero all back again.
At U in tho morning I entered Arta. which
was crowdod with fugitives. At 8 in tho morn
ing, finding the telegraph line of communica
tion blocked nnd no ihnnco of getting my
despatches through, and realizing that fighting
was improbnblo as yet, us tlmo would ho needed
for the Greeks to reorganize nnd for tho Turks
to bring up cannon from Janlna, I rodo to
Agrinlon, eighty miles from the sceno of the
fight, nnd thenco hy train nnd steamer to Patras
to send this despatch. I shall return to Arta to
morrow. Tho Turks now occupy Flltpplnda. Whether
tho Greeks can recover from this disastrous
panic I cannot say. I give facts which speak for
themselves. So far mutual recriminations are
more noticeablo than serious attempts at re
trieving the position.
There arc. of course, a variety of versions of
the so-called battle of Matl and the frightful
panic which accompanied the Oreek retreat to
Larlssa. I have given in a previous letter somo
account of tbo matter from writers on tho
Turkish side. Ono of tho most Interesting con
tributions 1b from the pn of tho Morninp Pout
correspondent, who nccompanled the Greek
army and who depended for transportation
chiefly upon his bicycle. Of tho fightlngltsclf at
Mali, he says:
From a military point of rlow tho opera
tions at Matl wero of littlo account. At times
the Greeks, dosplte their lack of discipline and
thair npathy lit obtaining information ns to the
enemy s movements, did fairly well. Their guns
wero well posted, and often offcctually used,
though much ammunition was wasted at times.
But they made no attempt at rapid movement,
or. Indeed, any movement during action. On tho
BOft ploughed land in front of Krltlrl they
should certainly havo gono out at a gnllopto
check tho Turkish advance. Their cavalry did
absolutely nothing, except at times some rathor
plucky scouting. Tho infantry tiro nu also
wildly extravngant, as very seldom wero any of
the Turks within range. From n strategic point
of view nothing was done thnt was notobWous,
while many opportunities wero neglected and
Of the Turkish movements It Is impossible to
wrlto critically, as oterything was concealed
with the greatest clcvorncss, excopt somo por
tions of thundvanco of their loft wing. Ther
descended the pass and deployed out into thrco
divisions on tbo plain after n fashion that would
please tho connoisseurs of Aldcrshot. They
also showed considerable skill in mnsklng
their batteries and in ingenious motcment.
Ednem Pasha, if ho was In charge, must
be a capital strategist. Who commanded
the Oreek forces is not very clear. Gen.
Macriawos in charge on Wednesday, and per
haps on Thursday, but according to one account
he was superseded by Ocn. Marromlchaclls bo
foro Friday. As a matter of fact. I bcllovo the
staff officers present had each of them tho right
to make suggestions a blunder which perhaps
as much ns anything else was tho cause of this
altogether Ignominious "Retreat of the Ten
Thousand." Of tho exact numbers on tho field,
probably there wero 10,000 Greeks and 18,000
In describing tho terrible sequel of the day's
opcrutious tbo samo man writes:
Hostilities sccmoo, therefore, over for tho day,
nnd the little nrmy of journalists returned to
Turnnvoand Larlssa In Bcarch of food and rest.
Tho desultory lighting at tho front had ceased,
and n primitive meal InTurnuvohad just been
Bet out when it was noted that an unwontodly
largo number of Oreek troops seemed returning
to Darraiks at this frontier townlct. Sus
picion soon became a certainty when It
was noted that tho soldiers wero accom
panied by ammunition mules and baggage
wagons, and that there was not oven that
small semblance of discipline which may be
detected when n Greek force is numbing at
ease. Tho Albanian uniforms of the Evzones,
dark as it now was (about 8 1. M.), could bo de
tected in company with tho ordinary French
llko Oreek uniforms. It was evident that tho
Greek army was In full retreat. Tho troops were
pouring through tho narrow byways of
Turnavo, and the rood to Larissa (twclvo miles
distant) was already snarmlng with fugitives.
Dclnrin. moreorcr, was now seen to bo ablaze. A
Oreek Captain, ln a shocking stnto of panic, ar
rived at tho pictureBciuo old Turkish Jiouso In
which myself and ononr two others woro "paying
guests" to wnrn tha Oreek occiipants that there
was no Bafety for them save in Lnrlssa. He hod
got no corrluge, and craved a seat for his wife
and child In tho carriage of an English corre
spondent which was waiting outsldo. This was
readily granted, ns most of us also possessed
horses in the town. It was not, howovor, until
It was certain that Turnavo would bo oociinled
by tho Turka next morning that most of the Eng
lishmen finally decided to return to Uirlssa.
But, rightly or wrongly, tho correspondents of
whatever nationality nro Inclined to dis
trust tho txshavlor of tho Turkish sol
diery toward them, especially at a mo
ment when intent upon tho pillago and firing
of a captured town. Only ono of our party
stayed, and ho tho tlnicn of the lot. He had the
whole of his kit at Turnavo. where, its the rest
of ub had made Larissa our headquarters, ho
floated tha British red ensign outside his lodg
ings and trusted to It for protection. His littlo
retinue of dragoman nnd servants wero still
with him whon I went to bid him farewell, and
he eocined pretty confident. Perhaps ho was
right. Wa correspondents havo long been
sick of tho restrictions placed uon us
by tho Oreok Oo eminent, nnd of our
telegrams, after waiting many hours for tho
censure of the Crown Prince, being then sent by
post to Athens. The Turks wero winning with
out anelfortoll along the lino. Larissa would
be theirs as soon as thoy liked to take It, and
then there would be no wlro by which to tele-
fraph or train to carry the malls. Whereas, If
ho Turks woro friendly, ono could get ono'snows
wlrod through more readily. And tho corre
spondent In question had served on the Turkish
Bido during the Russo-Turkish war.
As may lo imagined, tho road to Lnrlssa was
now qulto impossible for a bicycle. But for more
than half tbo distance I managed to rldo on the
narrow sheep tracks that Ixirdor It at a dis
tance of somo yards out. Delaria burning on
tho left supplied on tho grassy plain a lurid
light. Whoro thoro was cultivation this wns
not, of course, possible. Still I inanaRod to out
strip my friends, who had nerforco to walk their
horses In tha midst of thorabblo of soldiers,
mules, and wagons. There wero many mounted
men, officers, und troopers, nnd it was in tho wake
of ono of these that I followed when I had to
take my bicycle onto tho road. About four
miles from Iirlssa I was hailed in English by
one of tho English volunteers, whose acquaint
ance I had mudo ln tho Greek camp during the
past few days. Thereafter I walked with him,
nnd slung his haversack of ISO rounds of am
munition, not one round of which hnd Ix-en
tired, on my handlo bar. Ho wns terribly dis
tressed at the turn events hail taken, hut had in
no way lost his nerve. When I ottered him a
suit of English clothes at LarlBsain placoof his
uniform ho scarcely considered tho proposition.
"I reckon I'll seo It through now." ho said sadly
enough, nnd with no spark of enthusiasm. He
told mu that his name was O'Hulllvnn, and that
ha had taken part in agitations all his life for
tho liberty of his nv, n land of Ireland, and I let
him lirnto to mu as he likod of tho groat crusade
for liberty in which ho was taking part. It
seemed to relievo him, but It was ulnln enough
that ho realized tho pity of his present position.
Wo parted on tho plain outsldo tho town, as at
this pnlnt'a strong effort wnti tx'lng made by tho
fen ofilccrs who had kept their heads to Induce
the men toleavo the road nnd bhouau for tho
Larissa Is cntcrod by a narrow stone bridge
over the Balainvria, which flows undor the low
elopes on which the town Is built. Within the
last few days a second bridge of wood has been
built alongside tho other for military purposes.
For many hundred yards before tho bridges were
reached tho pressure was terrific Aftortmanr
narrow escapes, I managed to llfo mr bicycle on
to tho rear of n baggage wagon out or tho
crowd, and myself hung on behind. Aftor jorae
thirty minutes or more of frantlo struggling I
found myself at the other side, and roachod my
hotel In the market place. . .
It Is now past midnight, and other correspond
ents are arriving; some of whom their com
panions had given up for dead, others havo still
to arrive. Tho panlo must havo commenced
nbout tho tlmo I roachod tho bridgo, nnd somo
two miles to tho rear. It seems that some mules
or horses stampeded, and that tho shrieks of tho
mon whom thoy kicked and overturned cnusod
an alarm of ''tho Turks," which was taken
tip all along tho lino In tho neighborhood of
tho stnmpcde. Tho Boldlers at once bogan
firing their rlflos promiscuously. The car
rlngo In which wero tho lady and child
already mentioned, as well ns tho correspon
dent of tho Timtt, was overturned and smashed
Into matchwood. The Englishmen lay on their
backs at tho bottom of the ditch alonesldothe
road whllo tho bullets whistled over their heads.
What the actual less of llfo was It is not likely
that wo shall ever know, but It seems probable
that It must have far exceeded that which the
Oreok army lias as yet suffered at the hands of
tho Turks. Tho panic was checked br some
Greek ofilccrs who kept their heads, and found a
conplo of buglers to sound Uie " Cease tiro.
For some twentr minutes, over a distance of
about n mile, every man's hand was against his
follow. Tho soldiers blazed away with their rifles
in each othor's faces. Some Btabbed rocklcssjr
with their bayonets. Tho officers oven mado
frco ubo of their swords and revolvers. Many of
the English correspondents had most narrow es
capes, whllo the mad horror lasted, in tho en
deavor to avo their note books or sketches, and
perhaps somo portion of tholr kit. And the most
senior of them aro agreed that nover ln their
varied oxporienccs of European and savage war
fare has such a perilous quart d'hture fallen to
Another weak point ln tho Greek military or
ganization and some of the difficulties under
which war correspondents with the Greek forces
nre lnboring aro lndlcatod by tho Morning I'ost
It Is well to noto that during tho present cam
paign thoro has been no official bureau to sup
ply correspondents with Information. They
hnve hod to find out everything for themiolves
by no means an easy task If tho mountainous
character of most of tho district be considered.
In tho result most of tho nowspapor men were
considerably bettor Informed as to the situa
tion than tho Greek staff ltsolf. They had.
thanks to superior field glasses, a better con
ception of tho real number of tho Turkish army,
having carefully watuhed It as it dosoendod
from tho Pass of Milouna Into the valley two
nnd thrco dnys ago. And thoy nlso know
that a Turkish force of somo strength,
nftcr entering Oreek torritory, through
tho Psbs of Anallpsis, away to tho north
east, had burnt Nezeros ond Rnpsanl, occupied
Doroll (only twelve miles distant by road at tho
most from Matl), and might now bo expoctod to
ho advancing with the idea cither of taking tho
Greek forces in the rear or of Joining the main
Turkish forces ln the valley. I say that this
was known to us, more or less definitely, lost
evening, nnd I notod it in my letter to London
of that date. Yet to-day Greek officers of the
staff pooh-poohed any such contingency being
possible, although tho Greek flight tho very
samo night was caused by the advance of the
cavalry belonging to this very force whose ex
istence has been so fatuously ignored.
The Greek army, ln fact, Bcems to trouble It
self very little about obtaining correct informa
tion. True, It monopolizes tbo telegraph system,
but this Is scanty In tho extreme, to say nothing
of the Inefficiency of tho operators. Accounts of
Oreek reverses are carefully concealed from tho
local papers and obliterated by the official censor
from the telegrams of European correspondents.
The least Buccess is absurdly exaggerated. Tho
night before last, for example, a staff officer
lioasted at tbo way the Greek artillery had
thrashed tho Turkish cavalry that afternoon;
the fact being that a small body of Bcouts, hav
ing been sont out to discover the position of the
Oreek guns, hnd retired scathless on accom
plishing their object. In a very short time the
report generally accepted, and printed yesterday
ln the local paper, i as that a forco of 4,000 Turk
ish cavalry had been repulsed with enormous
los by tho Greek guns.
This samo lack of information was not only
directly responsible for the frightful panic of
to-night, but also resulted ln a scare last even
ing at Turnavo, when tho Turks, ha n fact,
were many miles distant. A peasant in the
market place bad a dispute with a soldier,
who wished to take tho former's horse for
some purpose. Tho soldiers, he shrieked, were
no better than the Turks. Immediately tho
cry was takon up that tho Turks hod en
tered tho town. Happily but very few inhab
itants were left In it. Many soldiers, however.
In their scare precipitately made their way back
to their quarters in the plain, with the result
that two camp alarms occurred, with very
heavy rltlo tiring in tho direction from which
tho Turks were supposed to bo arriving. It Is,
of course, conceivable that theso altrtt ln tho
Greek camp had some foundation, but I could
not find that any Oreeks had been killed or
wounded during what I bclievo to have been a
purely imaginary engagement.
Two or three correspondents mention tho fact
that many of tho Turkish troops donned tho
neat Oreek uniforms which they found aban
doned ln large quantities at Larissa. Several
times before and after tho fnll of the Thcssallan
capital soldiers on both sides mistook their
friends for tho enemy on account of the free ex
change of accoutrements which had taken place.
Ono nccount of the midnight panlo between
Turnavo nnd Lnrlssa ascribes it to this cause.
A company of Greeks had possessed themselves
of red fezzes such as the Turks all wear. In tho
dim light another section of the retreating
Oreeks mistook their companions for Turkish
soldiers, opened fire upon them, and the stam
pede began. Again, ln reconnoitring beyond
Larissa three days later n body of Turks thought
a small force of Greek-clad companions belonged
to the enemy, and there was a brief, sanguinary
Internecine conflict before the mistake waa dis
covered. These episodes are a curious repetition of his
tory ln the unchanging East. At the slego of
Troy, as every reader of Oreek mythology re
members. JF.netut and a number of his compan
ions arrayed themselves ln the nnnor of tho
Bloln Oreeks nnd went through the city deal
ing death to their enemies. They were ln turn
mistaken for Greeks by their own countrymen,
nnd were pelted with tiles from the roofs of
tho bouses. H. R- C.
ANOTnER Z.ETEE BREAK.
It Occurred In Baton nouge and There Seems
to Be No Prospect or Closing It.
New Orleans, La., May 12. Another break,
the fifth, occurred ln the Baton Rouge loveo to
day. Theso breaks have prevented tho work of
closing tho crevasse. There ore COO men en
gaged on tho now loveo, and offers of as many
more from the people below, who will be affected
by tbo crevasse, Amplo money has been guar
anteed by tho allied interests engaged in closing
tho break, but it is now feared that neither men
normnnoy can accomplish tho work.
Mr. Spellman, President of the Ponchartraln
Loveo Board, who has charge of the work of
closing tho crevasse, about abandons all hope.
Tho Mississippi valley branch of the Illinois
Central Railroad has ceased running Its trains
Iwtween Now Orleans and Baton Rougo nnd Is
transferring passengers by boat. There is now
every proboblllty that the crevasse will provo
very destructive to tho sugar district on tho cast
bank of the Mississippi from Baton Rouge down
to Now Orleans.
With tho exception of the Baton Rouge break
tho river situotlon has greatly Improved in tho
last twenty-four hours, particularly at New Or
leans. It is now evident that the crevasse water
from the Biggs break Is passing the city, for tbo
river has changed from a muddy to a clear condition.
DR. EEE IS DR. ZINRAROER.
TTns Married as Dr. Lee and KipeeU to Have
That Name Iesalld.
AsBunr Paihc, May 12. In the summer of
1805 young Dr. Frank Lee first appeared In
Asbury Park. Ho mado friends rapidly.
Among other acquaintances formed was that of
Miss Mae Sanford, tbo attractive daughter of
Mrs. E. A. Sanford of Firstavenuo. Theyoung
people fell ln love, nnd after a long courtship
wero raorrlod on April 14 last by the Rev.
Howard T. Wlddemer, tbo pastor of tho ABbury
j'ork Congregational Church. It now appears
that Dr. Lee's roal name is Llnbarger. The fact,
however, was disclosed to hU wife, who advised
him to retain tho name. .,..,
Dr. Llnbarger says that lie lias applied to the
Legislature for n change of name, and that he
exnects eventually that Loo will be bis legal
name. Thoro seems nothing wrong in the
Doctor's assumption of the namo Leo, although
tho motive for tho use of the other name is not
known, Tho couple are living happily together,
but Bomo of their friends advise that another
ceremony be performed.

CIRCUS TRAIN WRECKED.
The Tableau IVagons or Porepaush Jt Bella's
how deduced to Kindling Wood.
RocnssTEit. May IS. At G o'clock this morn
ing the last section of Forcpaugh & Sells Bros.'
consolidated shows jumpod the track at Brown
street crossing of the Now York Central road,
badly wrecking four cars. The circus train left
Buffalo last night for this city, divided Into four
sections. The last section was behind time
when it neared Rochester, and the train was
running at forty miles an hour. Shortly before
Brown street crossing was reached the brake
beam of oneof the core in the middle of the train
broke loose and fell on the track. Tho next car
ran over the beam and tho trucks Jumped the
track. The car bumped along over tho ties, fol
lowed by three other cars, and crashed Into tho
Brown street station, taking with it about thirty
feet of the station. The flagman's shanty was
demolished and a telegraph pole at the end of
the station was cut off about four feet from tho
ground, the upper part being supported by tha
many telegraph wires. Fortunately no ono was
Injured, but the property of the circus and the
railroad was considerably damaged.
The cars carried some of the tableau wagons
that play an Important part In the big street
parade, and ther were all wrecked. Cleopatra's
barge, the float of Cinderella, the float of Santa
Claus, and the steam calliope wero all reduced
to kindling wood.
ONE OF ALTO ELD'S 3IEN.
Chicago Grand Jury Iavestlcatlng the A era Irs or
Pormer Craln Inspector Andrews.
CntCAOO, May 12. Evidence was presented to
the special Orand Jury to-day that goes to show
that tho State of Illinois was mulcted of at least
$55,000 during tho administration of Gov. Alt
geld through tho office of the State Grain In
spector, Dwight W. Andrews. It was asserted
that not only were there men on the pay roll
who did no real work for tho State, but that
thero was a marked increase in the expense ac
count and extra pay rolls during tho months of
August, September, and October, nnd that In
October theso two items wero larger than ln any
month preceding. From the statement of wit
nesses and the books and vouchers of the Rail
road and Warehouse Commission it is apparent
that there was a studied effort to conceal the
identity of the men who figured in tho cxpenso
account and those who receirod back pay. Tho
investigation had led tho expert accountants to
believe that the back pay was charged up as
Andrews's bond has been found; tho principal
surety is ex-Mayor John P. Hopkins. John W.
Lanehart, Altgeld's brother-in-law, was nlso on
the bond. Mr. Hopkins will probably havo to
make good tho shortage.

Pikkvilmc, Ky.. May 12. Last week nine per

from a poisoned spring. This poisoning has been
followed by nnothor. At Home Creek Springs,
ten miles further east, Ed Mcnnlx and Dorcas
Alledger, a boy and girl, drank from the spring
on Sunday and died before night. The same
afternoon a stranger, who camped at the spring
with his family, used the wntcr for cooking. He
died, and his wlfo nnd three children were ln
convulsions when tbo courier arrived from there
last night. The man's name was Flelden Drew,
and ho had formerly lived ln the neighborhood

IlAnhianuno, Pa., May 12. Senator Quay has
surrendered to the influences that havo bcon at
work for tho last week and Senator Thomas of
Philadelphia, ono of his lieutenants, who re
turned from Washington to-day, is authority for
the statement that tho Heaver statesman has
given orders to abandon tho bills providing for a
new charter and tho ousting of the present ad
ministration In Pittsburg. Theso bills wero
framed at tho Instance of LleuU-Qov. Lyon, a
bitter antagonist of Sonators Magco and Fllnn,
tho anti-Quay bosses In Alleghany county, for tho
purpose of destroying tho anti-Quay organization
in tbo western end of tho State.
During tho wook thero has been a lot of talk
about Senator Quay's desertion of his friends in
tills political crisis, and a new deal in politics
during tho next few weeks Is not Improbable.
There is no socrot of tho fact that Senator Quay
has buriod tho hatchet in Philadelphia and
taken David Martin into his counsels onco
more. This means a blow for Senator Durham
and tho other Quay lieutenants who have been
foremost ln tho fight against tho Martin regime
ln that city. For two years theso men havo been
waging war against Martin and his associates.
To-day tho Senate possod finally the Elkln bill
taxing direct inheritances, and the Homo
Eromptly concurred In tho amendments. This
111 was drafted by John P. Elkln, the Chairman
of tho Republican State Committee, and went
through with a rush, tho Senate being held In
session until tho Houso acted upon the bill, so
thero would bo no dolay ln getting It to tho Gov
ernor. Sir transcribing clerks hustled the bill
through. It was transmitted to the Stato De-
Bartmont, nnd an hour later tbo autograph of
ov. Ilastlngs was aOlxed. It is estimated that
this bill will Increase tho rovenues of the Stato
at least $1,000,000.
Tho House Committee on Ways and Moans
also to-night decided to report tho Illlss boor
bills and tbo bill taxing Stato banks and trUBt
companlos 4 mills. It Is estimated they will
hring into the Stato treasury about 82,000,000.
The passage of tho Hamilton Itoad bill to-day,
with an amendment providing that it shall not
go Into effect until the Legislature has appro
priated a million dollars for the Improvement
of thehighwaysof tho State, explains the sudden
rush given to tho rovonuo bills.

State Senator Timothy "Dry Dollar" Sulli
van's betting on tho probable nomination by
Tammany Hall of Register William Sohmer as
Its candidate for Mayor of the Greater New
York Jhas aroused tho leaders of tho Gorman
American Reform Union. A member of the
Executive Committee of that organization said
" We want a German candidate for Mayor.
We think we are entitled to it, and that the
Raines law and Its amendments make It a prac
tical necessity to nominate one. If a German Is
to be named, however, we feel as though wo
should havo something to say about the choice.
He should be representative of and satisfactory
to tho organized Germans.
"Register Sohmer Is a good fellow, but bts
nomination would bo no concession. First of all
he Is aTammany leader and sachem. After that
he Is a German. Tammany would get from him
everything it demanded, and the organized Ger
mans might get what was left. It Isn't impossi
ble that the Republicans will nominate a good
German for Mayor, although I must confess I
do not know now who Is available."

George A. Blauvelt for $50,000 for the alleged
alienation of his wlfo's affections, came to an
end at noon to-day. At the close of the testi

dismiss tho case. The divorce which Mrs.
Thompson, now Mrs. Blauvelt, secured from her

the grounds that tho judgment of divorce Is a
bar, and Is conclusive proof that the husband

thnt she is judicially dead to him. Lawyer

IS GUIZBERT AROUT TO WEDT
A Report Trom Europe That She Will Marry A,
Her Manarer, Dr. Schiller.
Dr. Max Schiller, who Is now said to be en
gaged to Yvetto Gullbert, is a Roumanian who
enmo to New York first with tho Rosenfcld
brothers when thoy brought KleonoroDuso here.
Ho was tho Italian actress' personal manager,
and succeeded In keeping on fairly good terms
with her until the end of the season, which was
regarded as a very successful piece of diplomacy.
He is a brother-in-law to ono of the Roscnfelds,
nnd was graduated as a doctor of chemistry from
the Unlversary of Berlin several years ago. Ho
Is a cultivated man, an accomplished polyglot,
and a very modest and agrecablo fellow.
After tho Ttoscnfclds returned to Europe
Dr. Schiller remained here as their
representative, and last season travelled
for Abbey, Schoeffel & Grau with Sarah Bern
hardt. Part of tho season now closing ho spent
with the Lilliputians and met Yvetto Gullbert
in Chicago during February lost. He then be
como her manager for certain seasons outside of
tho time thatsho is under contract to Marchand
of Paris. She was to act in tbeso performances
plays of a moro serious typo than any of her M
music hall efforts had ever led the public to be- H
Hevo she would attempt. One of her threats jfl
was to act Uamiltr, but that was admittedly a
posslbllltv of tho distant future.
Dr. Schiller is a man of nn unreservedly nr
tlstio nature, and Yvetto said that he had been
the first one to persuade her that she could be
an actress. She returned to Paris and produced
a piece called "Pesslma," which was a long
monologue of song nnd recitation based on the
usual philosophy of Yvette's serious songs.
It would not hnve surprised any one to havs
heard that the singer had announced berengage
ment merely for the advertisement that would
result. That Is tho dearest thing ln tho world to
her. Sbo denied while here that she intended to
marry anybody, on the ground that no man could
possibly take the placo in her life tho admira
tion of tho public and her art now fill, it Is be
lieved that the report of the engagement
arose from the fact that Dr. Schiller
posed for some pictures that appeared
in n ridiculous book which pretended to
represent a lovo episode in Yvette's life. Dr.
Schiller consented to pose for these on the con
ditlon that he have his back turned and that tha 'Jn?
pictures be very small. Yvette didn't care who m
posed so long as she got the advertisement out D
of the scheme. So Dr. Schiller was taken in sev
eral groups with her, and represented an artist
who in the story waa supposed to be in love with
her. Ono of the sheets of the new journalism
copied and enlarged one of the pictures in an
nccount of the book, and many of Dr. Schiller's
friends recognized him. But it was not supposed
then that thero was any other reason for consid
ering them engaged to be married.
It has already been reported several times thai
Yvette was engaged. One of the prospective
husbands was Ifuges le Roux, who was responsi
ble for her dtbut on the stage, as well as an Eng
lish stockholder named Hlrsch. It was also said
that she was engaged to one of her American
managers. Ted Marks. She is a wealthy woman,
and, as money was never an object to her, shs
was able to select the sort of n man she wanted.
But she always protested that she would never
marry anybody. She is about 38 years old. and
Dr. Schiller Is probably several years her junior. JBH
