1.omk)N, Nov. 21. Peace ln the Balkans
Is not quite so nenr to reality as des
patches received yestenlay seemed to
Indlcnte. These earlier reports stated
positively that a cessation of hostilities
had been arranged. But late last night
came word from Constantinople that tho
firing of guns could be heard frequently
by those In the capital and that negotia
tions looking toward an armistice had
not yet even been begun.
It seems to he certain thnt proposi
tion for an armistice Is being considered,
the proposed respite being Intended
merely as an opportunity for further
negotiations for an armistice and nego
tiations between the Turks and the Bal
kan allies which may result In perma
It was stated ln Constantinople last
night that Turkey's representatives at
this preliminary conference probably
would bo Izzet Pasha, chief of tho gen
eral stuff: Osmnn Nlzaml Pushn, the
Ottoman Ambassador at Berlin, and
Shadan Bey, a Councillor of State, who
will act as legal adviser.
It was reported earlier In I he day
that Nazlm Pasha, the Minister of War
and commander of the Turkish forces
at Tchataldja, would be the sole rep
resentative of tho Ottoman side at the
conference. The later despatches stated
that It could not be confirmed that he
would not bo one ot the representatives,
and It seemed certain that the whole
mission would not be Intrusted to htm
The Constantloplo despatches ear
that the names of the representatives
of the allies ore so far not known In tho
Turkish capital. It was reported earlier
In tho day, at the samo tlmo that thn
report of Nazlm Pasha's appointment
was received, that Gen. Savoff, the com
mander ot the Bulgarian armies and
tho man whose military genius Is cred
ited with tho victories of his country
over tho Turks, would represent the.
Balkan nations. Should Turkey decide
to glvo her commission to soveral men
Instead of ono it is not certain that tha
allies will not consider it best to hava
a similar number of representatives.
Statements of the relations ot Austria
and Servla are conflicting. A despatch
from Sofia to the Daily Mail says that
the allle have definitely abandoned tha
Idea ot partitioning Albania and that
they will assist tn establishing Albanlaa
autonomy. If this Interpretation of tho
attitude ot the allies Is correct, partic
ularly with regard to Servla, Austria's
main ground for contention will bavo

Gazette lxtuacnne of Geneva, however,
bring Information of Austria's continued
preparations for hostilities and thereby
ecem to Indicate a lack of belief on tha
port ot the Vienna Government ln tha
report that the allies are willing to
forego the division of Albania. Tha das.
patches to tho Geneva paper state that
for the last few days Austrian troops
have been embarking at Flume durtmc
the night, their destination being Spa
lato, in Dalmatia, on a peninsula pro
jecting into the Adriatic, Gen. Balls
von See, wis. It is stated, has arrived at
Flume from Vienna.
The some paper heard from Inns
bruck that the Alpine troops are belns;
mobilized gradually on the Tyrolesa
frontier, and that regiments which havo
completed their service are being re
tained while the Tyrolese reserves hava
been notified to be 'ready for service.
The fact that troops Inured to a winter
campaign have been told to ba In readi
ness Is regarded as significant.
Constantinople advices say con
firmation bos been obtained that tho
Turkish flro dismantled several Bul
garian guns, although these have not
been captured, as the Turks were unable
to remove them. A detachment of
Turks operating from Derkos, aided by
naval guns, Is said to have repulsed tha
Bulgarians, driving them back ten miles
toward Ormalt Karaburum, There Is
said to hava been a heavy artillery duel
at Derkos, the Turks taking many of
the rifle pita occupied by the Bulgarian
and seriously crippling the Bulgarian
left flank. This engagement occurred
on Tuesday, tha Turks returning to
their own entronchmenta at nightfall.
According to despatches from Sofia ot
later date than the Constantinople ad
vices all the Turkish reports of Ottoman
victories at Tchataldja aro officially de
clared to be untrue. Tha Bulgarian
Government advloes state that the Bui
gar forces routed two Turkish battalions
on the heights to tho northward ot
Tchataldja and that they fired on a train
on tha Dedeagatoh road and captured a
locomotive and fourteen cars loaded with
provisions, ammunition and horses,
A news agency has received a de
spatch from Belgrade contradicting tho
earlier reports that a largo number ot
Turks had been captured at Moasurtlr.
