Not for a moment did the steady eyes
of the prisoner at tho bar flicker. Not
for a moment did his big hands twitch.
He took his sentence standing stiff
backed as a soldier, and the eyes peer

Turks Report Sortie From
Adrianople in Which
SERBS ARE ADVANCING
Greeks Approach Salonlca and
London, Oct. 31. Despatches received
from the Balkans early this morning
tell of tho capture of Lulo-Burgas, the
Important town commanding the Orient
Railway nt tho extreme left of the
Turkish position. The big battle ha
now been raging for two days,
Details of the capture are not given,
but It is added that the Bulgars by
this move havo occupied Muraldl, com
mandlng Rodosto. the seaport through
which n largo portion of the Turkish
Asiatic forces and their army supplies
have been coming. It is indicated that
the Bulgars nre driving tho Turks
slowly eastward along the Orient Rail
It Is clear that owing to the movement
of the Bulgarians toward the Black Sea
the Turks In order to avoid being out
flanked moved eastward and are now
apparently spread east of Lule-Rurgas
toward Istrandze. They are believed
to have a numerical advantage of about
50,000. The central army Is reported to
consist of picked regulars (tho troops of
Nazlm Pasha), whllo the reservists or
redlfs chiefly constitute tho left wing,
Four Turkish nrmy corps from Syria
have been pushed forward, it is stated,
to support the right wing.
Of tho Bulgarian dispositions little
is known, although it Is reported that
the left wing rests near Midla, on the
Nazlm Pasha's despatches are very
vague. Ho encourages his countrymen
with statements of complete success in
the direction of Vlza and the dispersal
of the Bulgarian division at Hougss,
but his despatches seem to refer only
to oixratlons on Tuesday.
From the Bulgarian side there Is
nothing whatever except the Sofia state
ment that the Bulgarians defeated tho
Turks at Lule-Burgas and then moved
on Muraldl, whence they command the
rond from Rodosto on the Sea of Mar
mora, a source of Turkish supplies.
One version of this move claims that
the Bulgarians after two days fighting
gained a complete victory over the
principal Turkish forces, which re
treated in disorder. Tho date of this
fight Is uncertain.
The Itclchpost's account of the fight
agrees that the Tur!: set the. Trort f
It, but represents that they were not
the principal forces. The correspond
ent of this paper says both armies
have concentrated their main strength
In the eaBt, leaving the western wings
The Morning Past learns that 30,000
Ottoman troops have landad on the
Black Sea coast with the object of
threatening tho Bulgarian flank and
rear. There Is nothing later than
Lieut. Wegener's despatch In regard to
the bombardment of Adrianople.
The Turks say that their troops have
made a sortie from bottled up Adrianople,
They broke out from the suburbs to
the southwest of the city, It Is asserted,
and headed toward Maras.
The Ottomans say that ,4,000 Bulgar
ians were cut to pieces by the charge of
the Sultan's men and were driven back
to Komalkeul, six miles to the south
of the city.
The correspondents with tho Bulgars,
on the other hand, send excited word
that Adrianople still suffers from the

despatches fresh troops are arriving
dally to the reenforcemont of the Bul
garians, and Instead of being thrown
back they nre drawing closer the grim
lines around tho besieged city.
Between Veles, captured by the Ser
vians, and Salonlca the Turks have
massed some 35,000 men besides the
whipped remnants of the army that ran
before the Serbs at Koumnnovo.
In all the Servians claim the capture
of twenty-two towns in Macedonia.

SOCIAL JUSTICE HIS PLEA
Governor Johnson and Oscar
Straus Get Warm Kcccp
tion From Throng.
Col. Roosevelt Is back. He spoke Uat
night at Madison Squaro Garden to
15,000 people. They cheered him for
precisely 41 minutes nnd 30 seconds-
There was no Indication throughout
this storm of applause, thct it was any
thing but spontaneous. It was directed
at Col. Roosevelt himself.
Oscar S. Straus and Gov. Johnson of
California recefved a hearty wclcom
from the crowd, but It was Theodore
Kooscvelt who drew burst after burst of
cheering and shout after shout of greet
ing. No one forgot that the Colonel had
been In dangernnd was back among hla
own people again.
Throughout the long tumult CoU
Roosevelt stood at tho front of the plat
form looking out upon tho cheering au
dience. The strain showed Itself In his face,
which was not as full as when New
York saw him before he was wounded.
By the end of half an hour his face
was gleaming with perspiration and hla
Jaws were snapping nervously as though
he were bent upon keeping himself n
trim, for the speech. . w
Smllea at Reception.
Rut it was dear that he waseitr
Joying the thunderous reception. Time
and again his face broke Into smiles
and up would go his left arm In greet
ing to his friends. Ho made no effort
to use his right hand at all, but a
gesture from the left was enough to
set the crowd Into uproar after up
roar. Once in a while he would turn from
facing the audience while they were
singing or cheering in his honor and
would drop a quick comment to Sena
tor Dixon or Gov. Johnson, who were
standing near htm on the platform.
It did not take a knowledge of lip
reading to know that the Colonel was
saying that this was a fine meeting.
When at last the uproar was quelled
and the Colonel was able to begin his
speech his voice rang as clear nnd his
accents were as determined as ever.
His speech was a plea for social
Justice. He argued that the Issues
now beforo the country are as vital
and scarcely less critical than those
which the States faced In the '0s.
It was the Progressive party and no
other which offered to the people of the
United States relief from the tyranny
of the few.
Strana and Johaaan Speak.
Col. Roosevelt was the last of the
three speakers. Before him were Os
car Straus and Gov. Johnson. They
centred their remark upon Col. Roose
velt, his record and his Ideas. Every
reference which they made to him
brought thunders of applause. The au
dience was keyed to the uttermost
throughout the two hours wait for tho
coming of Col. Roosevelt. '
The sturdy figure of the Colonel
showed Itself on tho raised platform on
tho north side of Madison Square Gar
den at 9:20 o'clock. From 6 o'clock,
when the doors were thrown open, the
Garden was In an uproar.
A steady stream came In at the Mad- .
Ison avenue entrnnco and scattered
throughout the arena nnd the galleries.
Half of tho 12,000 seats had been paid
for and the rest of the tickets had
been given out with the greatest cir
cumspection by tho leaders.
By 7 o'clock more than half the seats
wero taken, and those In the crowd
who were only lucky enough to get
pasteboards which called for standing
room only had already filled the space
nllotted to them In tho topmost gal
leries. Between 15,000 and 16,000 persons
were unable to obtain admission to the
Garden and thronged about the build
ing hoping for a chance to see tho
Colonel If not to hear him. Police ar
rangements were admirable and the
great multitude was handled without a
hitch. All this was In splto of the fact
that nbout 8,000 persons had been fooled
by advertisements given to them as ad
Tho Intense Interest of women In pol
itics was denoted by tho great number
In the Garden. Four out of ten Inside
were women and almost tho bame pro
portion held good in tho streets.
Ball Moose Was There.
Madison Square Garden was dressed
gorgeously. Across the celling from
Madison avenue clear to Fourth avenue
was one Immense American flag with
stars a man's height across.
