The victorious Bulgarians have taken

five miles west of the- city.
A division of an nrmy corps Including
many Circassians marched through the
city to-day on their way to reenforce

forts. They were hastily summoned
from the Turkish forts on the liluck
London, Nov. A. Turkey must treat
directly with her comiuerors If she
wants peace. The Powers to whom she
went with a plea for mediation told the
Porte to-day that they could not go to
tha Balkan allies with a request fur un

received. Some of tho Powers have
Bald that an armlstlco would offend the
Balkan victors. Others take the stand
that such a move us Turkey asks of
them would be an Infringement of In
Bulgaria, upon whom the bulk of the
righting has fallen, nnd her allies are
firm In their stand that there must be
no outside Interference.
The terms of pence will be a matter
then for the belligerents to determine.
It Is hoped In the chancelleries that
eventually the Powers may lilt upon
pome wny In which their offices In be
half of peace may be offered. Hut when
Turkey camo with her unexpected ap
peal the diplomatic negotiations then
under way were extremely nebulous.
Even the preliminaries had not been set
tled. Austria stood aside In dissent,
while Franco and Russia nnd England
made proposals. With Austria stood
Uermany and Italy.
Diplomats say, however, that Austria
may have mistaken the meaning of
"disinterestedness." Austria apparently

Austria's attitude still cnuses uncasl

niblllz.ttla.i of her troops persist.
Austria's rejection of tho French
proposal Is understood to be courteous
and It does not prevent the possibility
it future cooperation of the two great
European groups. It Is understood that
t'e Austrian. German and Italian Am-'M.-adirH
at Paris have notified Premier

interests of all tho Powers.
The westward movement of thj
Servians Is causing Irritation In Vienna.
1 Ik' believed III the Austrian capital
that the Serbs are endeavoring to es
tablish their rights to part of tho
Adriatic seaboard. This Is In direct
opposition to Austria's policy. Tho
attitude of tho Hclgrado papers too,

rule, causes Indignation among
Turkey claims that Frunce, England
ind Austria must Intervene between her
