BY FORMER POLICY
Postmaster General, for Second Time,
Wants Federal Ownership
of Telegraph Lines.
Notwithstanding the opposition which
President Taft expressed last year to
Postmaster General Hitchcock's plan for
the government ownership of telegraph
lines, Mr Hitchcock, In his annual re
port, made public yesterday, reiterates
his advocacy of such a policy
'In the last annual report,' says he,
"the opinion was expressed that the
telegraph lines In the United Statees
should be made a part of the postal
system, and operated In conjunction with
the mall service It is believed that
under proper management such a con
solidation would result in important
economies and thus permit the adoption
of lower telegraph rates Now that a
postal savings system has been estab
lished and a parcel post provided for,
there would seem to be no better op
portunity for the profitable extension of
our postal business than through the
adoption of a government telegraph
Considerable surprise was expressed
to-day at Mr Hitchcock's continued ad
vocacv of government ownership. In view
of the President's open and specific ex
pressions In opposition to It
Mr Taft was plainly embarrassed by
the government ownership reference in
the Postmaster General's report last
year, but he is again called upon to for

Yesterday's decision followed the fram

An extraordinary story was told to
day by a DemocraUc leader who un

It was to the effect that Mr. Bryan.
ho is supposed to have written the one-
term plank In the Baltimore platform,
has suggested the proviso extending the
effective date of the single-term amend
ment to 13IL There seems to be no doubt
that this proviso was adopted at the be
hest of Mr. Bryan. The motive that
prompted him to make such a proposal
Is under lively discussion among Demo
crats One leader who is known in h.
friendly to both Bryan and Wilson made
the statement that Mr. Bryan had he-
come reconciled to the thought thaf h
J'resident-elect should have another term
it ne made good and that the croDosed
reform might as well go over until some
time In the future. Another explanation
of Mr Bryan's purpose was that he be-
nevea ne wouia land the nomination In
1S16 and that he was now convinced it
would be a tactical blunder to remove
CoL Roosevelt from the question
Many Democrats regard Col RoKeit
as a big asset to the Democratic party.
They recall that Gov. Wilson was elected
in ivovember by a minority vote as a
result of the break In the ranks of the
opposition. They do not believe that the
two Republican factions ever will come
together and are confident that in
1315 there will again be three candidates
In the field. Under these circumstances
they figure that the Democratic candi
date could not lose. It was decided.
therefore, that as there was no crying
demand for the reform all the resolutions
should be pigeon-holed.

A total of S "iOO casultles was suffered
by the Turks In the disaster of the third
day. when they (led in panic to the ships
in Charkcul Harbor
The Bulgarians buried 1300 bodies of
their slain foes and 3,000 more Turkish
dead were left strewn over the battle
field In addition to the 5 300 killed, more
than 10,000 Turks were wounded
Detailed accounts received to-day from

rout. Forty -eight hours were occupied
by the Turks in the disembarkation of
two divisions at Charkeul. which were
Intended to turn the flank of the Bul

lines The Bulgars did not make any
movement against the enemv until the
disembarkation was completed
At 6 o'cloik on the morning of the third

The battle waged fiercely all morning
On toward the middle of the afternoon,
by a rapid turning movement, the Bul

The flight rapidly developed Into panic
Pursued by Bulgarian Infantry, while
artillery 'poured a raking fire Into their
flanks, the Turks regained the shore
with difficulty and effected their re

protection of the guns of the Turkish
warships As soon as the remnants of
