Despatches to-night from Athens In
dicate that the temporary armistice at
Tchataldja has not affected the Greek
advance. The Crown Prince telefrrnphed
to his Government yesterday that three
Greek columns from Vodcna, Uamatl
kovo and Koznrl ore marching In tho
direction of Fiorina and are meetlns
with Turkish resistance.
.lust what the trrms nf the nullum
proposal for a meeting; of commanders J
In conference were Is confused by vari
ous reports from various capitals. The
Constantinople version, bearing official
sanation, Is that no conditions are stipu
lated In this preliminary agreement.
Seemingly It has been left to Nnzlm
Pasha to decide whether the resistance
offered by his forces at the Tchataldja
lines Is sufficient to warrant Tutkey In
continuing: her resistance rather than
Rive In to the demands of the allies,
which at best, It Is believed, will leave
Turkey little of her European terri
tory. One large factor In the Austro-Ser-vlnn
situation will be the disposition
which the Servian Government makes
of Its army, which has now won Mon
nstlr and Is therefore free for service
Arirlanople-fe still completely Invested,
according to reports from Rulgarlan
cources which state that Turkleh troops
attempting to break through the Bul
garian linen on Monday were driven .
back Into the city with heavy losses.
The battlo lasted nearly all day.
There have been a number of arrests
In Constantinople of politicians and
jmlltlcal writers belonging to the Com
mittee of Union and Progress (Young
Turks) and this fact haa caused much
uneasiness in the Turkish capital, ac
cording to Constantinople despatches.
The Turkish Government Is quoted by a
news agency as stating that only forty
of thee arroits have been made and
that the reason for them waa the or
ganization of a demonstration by uni
versity students on October 7.
For political reasons grotesque re
port regarding the arrests and the pris
oners have been circulated In Constanti
nople. One version had It that those ar
rested had been plotting to overthrow
the empire and set up a republic; an
other, Intended particularly for Chris
tian and foreign consumption, was to
the effect that the conspirators planned
to blow up the foreign quarter at Pera
and to commit massacre?, The view of
the diplomatists on the ground Is that
tlie arrests were due to tin- nomlnntlon
of Mahmoud Hhefkot Pasha as Inspec-tor-General
of the army, u nomination
made by the Sultan at the prompting of
the Unionists and Intended by them to
he a forerunner of downfall for tr,
Ministry. The arrests, It Is believed,
will discourage opposition for a time.
NO CHANGE AT TCHATALDJA.

Special Cable Iterated to Tin Sri
l.o.M'OS, N"o. 21. Hrltlsh correspond
ents nt Constantinople who have been
near enough to the lines to watch,
although the majority of them were
not allowed to go actually to tho front,
concur that the position about Tcha
taldja has not changed materially. The
Turks maintain a Htm stand nnd the
Bulgars have gained nothing. Opinions
i-eem to differ as to whether the opera
tion? of the latter have failed or
whether they were never Intended to
be more than a reconnaissance In force
to test the Ottoman strength.
Ashmeatl Hartlett, the correspondent
of the Dnlli Telegraph, says It was evi
dently rather a reconnaissance than an
attempt to break through. The Bul
garians failed to make any marked Im
pression and finding their temporary
position? disadvantageous and their
losses becoming excessive they withdrew
across the valley to the positions which
they held before the attack. There was
some artillery tiring of a desultory char
acter on Wednesday, but both sides
seemed to be glad of the respite.
Martin H. Donohue cables the Daily
Chronicle that "the fortune of war has
now turned decidedly In favor of the
Turks. The Bulgarians were unable to
hold the advanced positions which they
stormed nt ?o much cost on the pre
vious day and having failed to make
any Impression on the fort? around
Hademkeul have now fallen back. As
tho enemy retreated the Turkish guns
shelled them .thus reversing all pre
vious experiences of the campaign. The
fighting has been very severe und the
Bulgarian losses, especially In the re
treat, have been considerable'.
"All the redoubts taken by the enemy
have now been reoccupled by the Turkr,
who are much elated at having beaten
off what they consider the Bulgarian
Mr. Donohue, however, thinks It prob
able that the Bulgarian movement was
ft reconnaissance to test the Turks' vul
nerability He continues: "Both hides
are very much exhausted by tho fear
ful artillery ffliel of the last few rjys.
The Turi'.H have displayed an Infinitely
better fighting spirit than hitherto. The
infantry In particular has shown ad
mirable steadiness and Is doing much to
restore the ancient prestige of Turkish
"The last engagement entailed great
losses on both sides. The Turkish
wounded are being served by decently
, good ambulance service and are stream
Ing Into Hadcmkcjil."
The correspondent of the Dally .Wall
declare that the balance Is now dis
tinctly In favor of the Turks. He adds
that the Bulgarians have not been de
feated but checked. Tho Turkish medi
cal and commissary services are much
Improved and some of the troops aro in
good condition. The Sixth corps from
Damascus Is expected Immediately to
reenforce those already on the fighting
lines. There Is, however, says th
oorrepondent, a great difference be
tween a successful defence of the lines
and a Turkish advance. The best the
Turkish army can hope to do seems to
bring on conditions of stalemate In
which to open negotiations for peace. If
the representatives of both sides meet to
discuss the preliminary peace matters
It will possibly be found that the Turks'
backs have been stiffened enough to
make an agreement Impossible until the
scale Is depressed once more.

"And perhaps wc were also wonder

"Splssltude" made such a hit that
