CONSTANTINOPLE. -Nov. 1 The

has defeated the TulgavJan in the vctn

eeived here tljls afternoon from Nazlm
Pasha commander-in-chief of the Turk
ish forces.
XaKlni's- despatches say th J3ulgarlan
lospea were heavy and that all ihe TUrk

,vanoe. 1 The denpatch announcing the recaeture
of Bunarhipsar was sent bv Naclm Pasha
at Alio o'clock tills afternoon. H 'alo
that the Bulgarian column had been out
off.
A telegram from Nar.Im- sent at 2
o'clock thie afternoon said:
"Our right wing has been advancing
since yesterday- from Visa. .Mabmoud
Mouktar Pasha's army ha? vanquished
the Bulgarian cp'.umn and all of our army
corps ha.vc been ordered. 10 advance."
! A communication eent by Nacim Pasha
tt the sultan said that the Bulgarian
forces gradually wore bcinc hemmed in
on four sides. It especially commended
thp conduct of IiIe troops at Vis?., .who
were said to be fighting with' splondid
devotion and courage.
A still earlier despatch from the Turk,
ish commander-in-chief, datfd Thursday.
FaJd thft Bulgarians had sustained heavy
losses In Wednesday's fighting at I3unar
hlssar and that a quantity of artillery
pieces, rifles, ammunition and other

called to the colors. The Turkish com
mander there Is asking for Turkish
troopa.
The condition of refugees wno arc ar
riving from Kirk Killssch and Adrianople
Is rqost pitiable. Some 10.000 of them,
Including women and children, are camping-
In the court yards of the MoFquc3
and thwc is danger of an epidemic.
Throo Turkish officers committed sui
cide at Kirk Killsseh when the panic
arising from the dofeat of the Turks by
thr. Bulgarians set in.

PAKIS, Xov. 1. A policy of territorial
disinterestedness in the Balkans, if
France. Russia and Great Britain have
their wa, will replace" 'the now dis
credited shibboleth of. "status quo" as a
basis of collective aotio'n by the great
power? should, the. time arrive for a re
distribution of sovereignly in Turkey
through the victory of the allied Balkan
stated over the Turks,
This self-sacrificing ordinance would
apply only to the na.tlons constituting the
concert of Europe. a6 there is no longer
any suggestion of opposing tho aspira
tions of the Balkans for national unity.
It is recognised that the Balkan states
must have their respective share of ter
ritory, nhoijld the Turks finally acknowl
edge defeat, bni it Is feared that" any
attempt by outsiders to put their b3nds
ir the grab bag would lt-ad to the Euro
pean conflncratlon.
! A full agreement as to the new formula
j which In to cement tho accord of the
, nowern ha not betn rcm-htd. Frauee,
j RuhMh and Great Britain are rcadv to
I subscribe to it, but Germany. Austrla'and
Italy hesitate.
The all3ged undrstandinc between
Russia, and Austria, oh the subject of the
atatns of Noviptnr and Solonlkl which
I it had been hoped here meant that Aus
tria finally had decided that Solonikl was'
not worth a war and would hav cleared
j the way for the new programme, was
denied tonight by the Servian minister
'Hi Paris.

, ONE OF THE WORLD'S
GREAT STRUGGLES
CONSTANTINOPLE. Nov. 1. What
; ever the Issue of the terrible battle now
', raging- on the. wectern slopes of 'the ls
trandja mountain in Thrace, it undoubt
i edly will be reckoned among the world's

Almost uninterruptedly for ronr davs

! TlK dearth of news from the front
I Wedncr-dav and Thursday had given riue
! to a feeling of despondency and xent-a-tioiiHl
in.nors of Turkish reverses rained

nindfd have withdrawn the atmv at
KuHtcnJc and their forces before Adri
anople and that these troops aic being
hurried to support the center of rht: ni;uu
Rulgftrian army.
Some Idea of the dc&noraie nature of
the fighting i gathered from the fact
that more than 3000 wounded noldicrs
arrived in Constantinople tonight from
the front. Fortunately a majority of tho
bullct6 drilled clean holes lu their vic
tims nd theae will heal rapidly, A hatch
of deserters arrived with the wounded.
Commandant in Trouble.
Indignation ami surprise were cx
preKsed here today ovei the fact that a
Oroek torpedo boot had succeeded In
entering the pulf of Salonlkl last night
despite the mines and heavily armed
forts and hart blown up the Turkish bat
tlenhln Feth-I-Btile'nd. The command
ant, of the forts will be called to account
for permitting this incursion.
The movement or. troops to the front
continues. A battalion of Turkish and
Albanian volunleetu marched through Hit
sticets of Pera thlH evening on the way
to the rallwaj station. The men were
cheered and appeared to be in th best
of splrl tu.
As a result of a meeting Thur.'rtnv of
the heads of the diplomatic missions to
consider the situation In Constantinople,
the .Marquis De Fallavlona, the Austro
Hnngarian embassador and denn of the
diplomatic coipk today vnted Noradung
hian Effendl. tho t'oreign minister, and
called his attention to the necessity of
adequate meaauros to maintain order in
the city.
Amonfc the measures the sove.nniieiu
lias In mind in event of further Turkish
reverses is the despatch of an army divi
sion to lop all fugitive soldiers bet weep
I'clioralalja and Constantinople. The city
at present is tranquil, business Is pro
ceeding in; usual, though the keenest in
terest is being taken in the military
drama In the Thracian hills.

SHOOL Gil DEFUSES
TO SALUTE THE FLAG
(Continued from Page One.)
lowed to return to the Franklin school
until tbe suspension order is overruled,
b' tbose higher in authority than my.
self. T have presented tbe fads to Su
perintendent Christenscn, by means of
a letter, but I" have not board from him
ou tbe subject.'
Case Is Unique.
"There are some tbiDps we ennuot
compromise on and this is one of them,"
said Superintendent Cbristcnscn last
uishl. "The child Trill uot be allowed
to return to school until she is williu;? to
salute the flag. The little patriotic e.x
erciscy'of which the saluting. of the flag j
is a. ai'1W practiced in' all public
schools throughout the nation. Here in
Salt Lake it is a daily ciercisc for the
most part and though wc have children
ia the schools from almost even' uatjou
under the sun, never before has1 a cafcc
similar to this one ariscu."
In saluting the flag the school chil
dren of the higher grammar grades pro
nounce the following pledge: "..pledge
allegiance to my flag and to the repub
lic for which it ptauds; ono natiou in
divisible, with liberty and .iirstice for
all. " The vouugcr children accompany
the salute with a simpler formula: 'T
give my band and my heart l.o God aud
my fouuiry. One country, one language
and one fla,c. ' '
Argument Is Vain.
The rebellion of the Eyler child was
noted fir.sf about ten days ago when
Principal Poulsou happened into her
class room, which is the fifth A class,
and conducted tbe patriotic oxcrcise:,.
He saw Ihe girl rise to ber feet with the
other children but deliberately turn her
back when it calne time to salute. He
asked the reasou for her action aud at
first she said she did not know the sa
lute. The following day she refused
again to salute.
"I argued with her day after day but
it was no upo, " said fr. Poulsor.. "She
answered me with such radical and de
termined FocialiMii that T despaired of
changing her altitude."
When scon by ncw.spaper men at the
home of her father last night, the child
yave direct and intelligent answers to
all questions put to her regarding her
jf'eiionf. She said the American fla'sr had
never douo anything for her and that it
no longer stood for' the noble principles
iu which it was conceived.
Prefers Red Flag.
"It htandf-. for a government ttfat
does uot belong to tbe common people
any more.'" she fnid. "Tt allows some
pcoplo to starve nnd others to get all
