towns which had been captured by the
Servians concentrated there. Djavid
Pasha, tho commander of tho sevcuth
Turkish army corps, went thcro with
many of his soldiers after tho fall of
Uskup to the Servians.
Tt was thought that the Turkish
troops would bo ablo to stand a lengthy
sir-go on Monastir, but it is evident
that tho army was totally disorganized
and lacked provisions; Many of tho
soldiers wore Tcservists onlv recently
called to tho colore.
Monastir occupied a capital position
for defense. It is the market center
for tho entire district and has a popu
lation of -15,000, composed of Servians,
Bulgarians, Albanians, Armenians and
Turks. The Christians number about
half of tho inhabitants.
LONDON, Nov. IS. Pcro. and Galata,
says a Constantinople dispatch to tho
limes, are now guarded against any
Imaginable attacks by a cordon of H30
marines thrown about In stragctic posi
tions. The lines of the International
forces link up the various embassies and
take In tho foreign Institutions.
Tho French admiral commanding
claimed the post of honor of guarding
the convents and schools at Shlshll and
Mshantash for his marines. On the first
appearance of trouble the bridges will
be opened and the Russian gunboat Ku
banaz will enter the Golden Horn and
take up a position for the defense of
the Phanar. The other warships will
move close In Tuesday.
Thus far. says the correspondent, all
is quiet and bids fair to remain so. The
populaco are inclined to criticise the
mensures as premature. They argue
that It would have been better to have
waited until the Turkish authorities had
nanded over the entire policing of Pcra
and Galata to the troops, as they had
undertaken to do In case of serious trouble.
IN FIRST ATTEMPT
LONDON, Nov, IS. The first Bul
garian attack on the Turkish line of
fortifications defending Constantinople
at Tchatalja has failed, though the
whole Bulgarian army was engaged.
Every available man was moved to tho
front from Adrianople, whero thoy were
relieved by Servian troops.
Tho Bulgarians with all their artil
lery began their advance on the Tchat
alja fortifications on Saturday and con
tinued tbo bombardment of the works
throughout Sunday. The-, however
iounj the Turkish positions so strong
that they could mako no impression on
them and for the moment at least the
attempt has been given up.
Obsorvors who have been to the Turk-
J li.ff?.t af'ro thnt lbo capture of the
lenataha hues must provo a task of
tremendous difficulty. Tho days the
Bulgarian troops were compelled to use
for the bringing up of guns and ammu
nition and reinforcements wore utilized
by the Turks to intrench themselves
and place their guns in positions, giving
them a distinct advantage over the at
tackers. The Turks who had been so
suaken by their previous defeat ap
peared to have been thus steadied and
thus far have made a most determined
stand. The Bulgarian troops mado their
main attack to the cast of Tchataliti,
aiming to break through at tho point
whoro the railway to Constantinople
makes a loop.
No Attempt to Turn Flanks.
The strong forts, tho marshes and
the guns of tho Turkish warships had
evidently discouraged them from mak
ing an attempt to turn either flank of
the Turkish lines. Should the Bulgar
ians bo successful in their effort to
break through the Turkish left center,
Nazim Pasha's Ottoman army will be
pushed back to the northeast and its
retirement on tho capital will bo cut
off. Tho Turks seem to have no hope
of rolling back tho Bulgarian forces,
but if (hcv succeed Jn holding thr
linos of Schatalja. both the military and
diplomatic situation will undergo a
marked change, sinoo a long defense of
the front will probably enable the in
vaders to negotiate without taking

vicinity of the fortress of Monastir.
Montenegrins Make Headway.
At Scutari tho Monlcgrius are at last
making some headway. They have suc
ceeded in driving the Turkish troops
from ono of their mountain positions,
but tho Turkish commander has not
given up hope of making a long de
fense. Tho invested fortress of Adriauoplo
also, according to independont corre
spondents, is still able to withstand a
sicgo of several mouths.
ARRIVAL OF GREEKS
BELGRADE. Nov. IS The fighting
that preceded the surrender of Monastir
lasted two days. The Servians had occu
pied all the high points to the northwest
of the town. They brought up a large
number of field battrles. howitzers and
other heavy gime, which enabled them
to silence tho Turkish artillery-
On Saturday a Servian division was
ordered to storm a position west of the
town held by 20.000 Turks with seventeen
guns. Colonel Ncdlch, commanding tho
.Servian Moravia division, was detailed
for this operation. Ho encountered great
difficulties in the marshy ground, but
eventually prevented the attempt of the
Turks in this section to break through
and retreat into Albania.
According lo unofficial reports the
Turks suffered tho loss of 20.000 killed
and wounded, Including several superior

swung round and seized the Dolintzee

Times estimates that 50.000 men havo
succumbed to wounds or disease, that Is,
about one In forty of the whole male
The significance of (his great sacrifice,
ho says, is scarcely realized In a country
which bears its losses with admirable
stoicism. There is no list of dead or
wounded, and nobody asks for It. but,
as tho end is In sight. It will be tho
duty of tho government to sec that the
brave peasants whose graves He thick
In the fields of Thrace shall have died
not In vain. Nothing less than the total
extinction of Turkish rule In Europe,
Bulgarians say, can be accepted.
Referring lo the cholera, the corre
spondent says the Bulgarian troops aro
abundantly supplied with rakla spirit,
made from the grapes ut Kirk ICillsseh,
which Is regarded as effective In the pre

TURKS HELD THEIR
By International News Service.
LONDON, Nov. IS. The Express this
morning publishes the following from
Its special correspondent at Sparta;
"The battle along tho Tchatalja line
began before daybreak this morning. It
Is now nightfall and hostilities huve tem
porarily ended. The day's fighting has
fully Justified the prediction that the
Turks are at last showing the qualities
that have won for llu-in a world-wide
reputation This Is to be seen, not only !
In the behavior of the men under ter- !
rifle artillery flro which lasted throughout
Sunday, but at the marvelous manner In
which their organization has been im
proved. "Everything is now working smoothly.
Food, ammunition and supplies arrive
regularly without, a hitch, while oven the
Ottoman army Is now settling into its
Day Dark and Gloomy.
"A dark and gloomy morning favored
the Turks, for when nine or ten Bulgarian
batteries opened fire acalnst the Humld
lycch gtoup or fortresses which protect
tho railway for a mile or two west of
Hadcmkeul. their positions were clearly
revealed by flashes of light which showed
up plainly against the dark background.
Tho batteries were cunningly placed on
the edge of plowed fields which rim up
the lower slope of the Tchatalja hills.
"The attack on the forts was the most
determined yot seen, but the Turkish
division was fully cuual to the domands
made upon It. Indeed, the artlllerv duel
was one of the most tremendous seen In
the war. tho guns on both sides being
exceptionally well served.
"When nt nightfall the guns ceased
their roar, the result was Indecisive,
neither side having gained any apparent
Infantry Driven Back.
"Further south the fighting v.nn even
more dramatic In Its character, for here
the Bulgarian infantry took part In the
avHck under covpr of their urtlllcrv
posted at the southern end of the hills
by Papas Bourgas. The Infantry en
deavored to make the crossing of the
river Knrasu, which runs down the val
ley, but thoy met with an overwhelm
ing resistance from tho Turks, whose In
fantry was well entronched all along tho
opposite side of the valley supported by
field guns dug Into earthworks.
"The defense was splendidly assisted by
tho fire of three battleships Just off the
coast, which got tho range of the Bul
garian position with great effect. The
merciless fire directed against thorn from
all sides was too much for the Bulgarian
Infantry, which, when they attempt cd to
cross the river, was driven back by the
entrenched Turks and compelled to re
tire ou their positions. Tonight. Sun
day, the lltllo village of Tapaa Bourgas
"To sum up, there is no doubt that tho
composite Turkish divisions havo been
successful In holding their own In the
day'8 fighting. They have scored all tho
points in the first round of the battle.
Tho struggle which began today may last
for several days unless It Is Interrupted
by negotiations for peace.''
SAYS THE BULGARS
M A DE NO HEAD WA Y
LONDON, Nov. ID. The correspond
ent of the Times, with the Turk's, giv
ing further details of the battle along
the Tchatalja lines, says.
"The firing Increased heavily toward
3 o'clock Sunday, when the Bulgarian
batteries three miles northeast of Tcnat
ulja opened a continuous fire against the
twin works or Ilaiuldich.
"The Bulgarian Infantry had de
bouched into a plain and seized the vll
higo of Izzedlm, from which they were
driven by the Turkish artlllerv. Soon
after tho village burst Into flanics. The
Turkish troops appeared easily to be
holding the enemy at bay.
"On the Immediate front the Turks had
felt but slightly the Bulgarian pressure
since noon and through my glasses I
could discover no sign that the Turkish
reserves had left the positions thev oc
cupied in the morning.
"The Bulgarian batteries, cleverly in
trenched at the edge of the plain, had to
bear the fire of the heavy guns of three
warships booming broadsides from the
sea. This fire was directed by signals
from the hills. It seemed effective, but
tho Bulgarian artillerymen still cour
ageously served their places. Thus the
artillery combat ebbed and flowed till
tho sun went down In a crimson glow
amid a wet fog drawn up by the firing.
"Just before nightfall another vigor
ous duel between the Bulgarians and
tho Hamidieh works began. I thought
for a moment that this hell of shrapnel
presaged an assault, but I was wrong,
as with the setting of the sun all signs
of the fight disappeared, save the flames
of (lie burning villages, as though the
battle was stopped by the touch of an
"Thus finished tho first day of the Bul
garian preparations to discover a salient
point in the famous Tchatalja lines.
The Bulgarian general must have learned
much and learned not to place too much
confidence in the appreciation by ama
teur correspondents of the morale of the
army lately In retreat, but. well re-established.
It Is impossible to sav what
is .passing In other directions. Some of
the troops are seeing the enemy for the
first time. From what I have "observed
the Bulgarians made no headway here."
ATHENS. Nov. IS. Major Zachos
sends the following telegram:
"After landing iu Kuesanra I expelled
the Turkish authorities -and hoisted tlic
Greek flng over a dozen villages of the
peninsula. The Inhabitants were wild
with joy. T am marching toward the vil
lages beyond the Kassandra peninsula
and have occupied the towns of Pollgl

publishes a despatch from its war cor
respondent, who says he is informed bv
the fugitive Albanian leader IColdlbra
that the Servian troops after occupvlng
Prisrcnd turned their inauhlne guns" on
the Inhabitants, killing 111 men. thirtv
five women and ten children. TColdibra
also declared that the charge that the
Servians were fired on during their oc
cupation of the town was false.
CONSTANTINOPLE. Nov. IS. The
sultan has addressed an appeal to the
sovereigns of the great powers. It is
slated on good authority, requesting in
tervention to end the war.
A more optimistic tone prevailed in of
ficial circles today, due to confidence that
the troops will be able to hold the lines
at Tchatalja. II Is reported that cholera
and typhoid arc causing fearful ravages
in the Bulgarian ranks.
According to an announcement at the
