News Eagerly Awaited.
.News of the capture of Xazim
Pasha's headquarters at Tchorlu is
eagerly awaited. Littlo haa been heard
from the Bulgarian left wing, which
stretches from Bunarhissar to Midia.
In l his territory tho Turks greatly out
number thc Bulgarian, y,-ho have been
only able to hold their own. Any slight
success which tho Turks obtained here,
however, was of no material im
The Bulgarian victory was due to
superior strategy combined with the ex-
troiiic energy of their offensive move
ment. It appear that tho object, of
the rapid advance early in the week on
Visa and Midia was not really to out
flank tho Turkish right wing, but to
miblead the . Turks. This was success
ful. Tho Turks moved their reserves ;
by sea and along tho coast to
strengthen the right wing, which
reached to Istrandia, and directed all
their olforts to meeting hero what they
believed to be the main attack.

really concentrating at Kski-Baba,
