possible, however, that the impassable

LonikiN, Nov. 18, The correspondent
of the London 7'finr.i, who was with the

under yesterday's date, says:
"At daybreak the llulgarlans un
masked their artillery positions. Along
the front from the Hanildlych forts to
Papal-Hurgnl they opened a heavy ar- i
tlllery lire In preparation. This Is ths
Hist real endeavor the Unitarians have
made against the Turkish lines.
"The position the Unitarians selected
as their salient point Is fronted on the (

hnve been mounted In tecently con

"Th Turks have also placed trenches

llnkMrlan artillery positions are not so
advantageous. 11s the llulgarlans have
been forced to avail themselves of the
under features of a feml-plateau at the
foot of tne Tchataldja rldg.
"Although the llulgarlans dug trenches
under cover of the nlsht, the black
bncksround of Tchataldja scarps dls
closed every Hash nnd soon their batter
ies were unmasked.
"This vva the situation at daybreak
to-day. marking the tlrst day of the
second month of the war. Counting the
Hashes I made out three batteries in
action against the Papnl-Uurgal front
nnd at least seven In front of Hnml

some guns heavier In calibre than field
"In the early morning there was a
dull, misty atmosphere. The black face
of the Bulgarian position sparkled with
Hashes and the circular shrapnel and
the common shell bursts of the Turkish
reply. Some of the Turkish heavy ar

of the deafening rattle of musketry that
the Bulgarian Infantry were advancing
In this direction during the night, the
Bulgarian Infantry had pushed down
under cover of the banks of the Karasn
and w.'ie essiijlng to take possession of
the upper loop of the railway and Bag
aegetsch "Small groups of the Bulgarians came
up out of the shelving banks, drib
bled forward, lay down and dribbled
loosely forward again. Their advance
was very gallant, but very slow. The
Turkish gunners found them nicely nnd
presently the forward movement died
out. The essay had failed theie.
"The machine guns and the crash of
the infant! y magazine tire In the dl
lectlon of the Hamldyeh forts told us
that another Infantry effort was being
made there, but ns the tire soon died
down and ns there was no movement on
the part of the Turkish reserves. It Is to
be presumed that this attempt likewise
was a failure.
"This was at 10 .('clock In the morning
and nil the time the llrmnment was ring
ing with the whlpllke crack of shrapnel
and the dull reverberation of heavy
ordnance. The Bulgarians searched for
us heavily, but they burst their shrapnel
too high nnd In my part of the Held
there were but few casualties from this
source, although several shells hit the
earthworks, smothering us all with mud.
"In my vicinity the Turkish Infan
try were very snug nnd the men, un
less they were ordered to man the
works, were cheerily munching bread,
cartloads of which reached us during
"Seeing that on our front the Bul
garian Infantry attempt had failed, I
withdrew (Isewheie In order to gain a
comprehensive view of the action nnd I
cllmhed the hltl of Karngntch Here
again I had the snme wonderful pano
rama which was presented early In the
morning. From the Hank 1 could see
that the Bulgarians weie directing their
most severe lire against Ihe llamldlch
slopes. The Turks seemed to prefer
lo search the Hats with their tire rather
than deal with the opposing batteries,
which were posted below the Tchataldja
"Towards 11 o'clock there was some
thing of a lull nnd as I could not make
out the slightest movement among the
Turkish reserves It seemed to mo that
the Bulgarians had found their salient
less easy than they hnd anticipated.
It certainly looks that If this Turkish
position on the left Is ever to be taken
It will only be by the slow process of
stealing port Ions under cover of heavvl
artillery preparation, but he Is a fooli
who prophesies concerning the war.
"As 1 write the artillery tlrt- continues,
hut It Is less heavy than It was be
tween 8 and 10 o'clock this morning.
The Turks have had sulllclent breathing
space to render their position so for
mldnblo that It will require great moral
fortitude on tho part of a General to
expose his troops In nn assault over
tho long gradual glacis."
