Hademkeul, Nov 20 The result of the

of the Turks, who gained their first
advantage In this arxat their last
stand The Bulgarian., unable to hold
the advanced position, they bad storm

to make any Impression of the forts
around Hademkeul, have now fallen
back with their heavy artillery. As they
retreated, the Turkish guns shelled
them thus reversing all previous expe
riences of the campaign
The fighting has been very severe,
and the Bulgarian loss, especially in the
retreat, was considerable All the re
doubts taken by the enemy have now
been reoccupled by the Turks, who are
much elated at having beaten off what
they consider was the Bulgarian main
attack. It is probable, however, tnat

the enemy would make its chief attack
much further to the right of the Turkish

More than six months ago Chief In

gan an organized campaign over the en
tire United States hunting down Uie al
leged violators of this provision of the
law. They culled questionable adver
tisements from many publications, and
through correspondence obtained the
necessary evidence. Fostmaater General
Hitchcock was aroused to make this
campaign because of scores of protests
which he had received from respectable
.omgi In all parts of the country. They
were receiving circulars and advertise
ments which were extremely distasteful,
and wanted to know If there was not
some way by which the malls could be
barred against such communications
The post-office Inspectors In their gath
ering of evidence seemed to have en
countered little difficulty so bold and
unscrupulous had many of the alleged
Illegal practitioners become. In some

obtained evidence not onl) as regards
