bit at Tehatalja lines, where a bat
,( has been in progress for three
day.
The Turks admit that so many
oumlcd arc arriving at the capital
is to show the Turks are offering
wtt resistance. The admission is
jifiuficant in view of previous ones
j .mnlar nature and may be re
dded as preparing the public for

possible this will prove the," last great
battle of the campaign. There arc
indications the Bulgarians .will fore
go a triumphal entry into Constan
tinople. It is reported they will be
content with finding winter quarters
for their army while peace negotia
tions arc in progress.

City Council
OF TURKISH ARMY IS
IN DIRE STRAITS
Graphic Word Picture of the Appalling
Condition of the Soldiers is Painted By
The Staff Correspondent of Temps.
Uy Afnoclnted Press.
PARIS, Nov. IL Jean Rodcs, staff
correspondent of the Temps, who
has reached Constantinople from the
war zone scuds a vivid picture of the
misery of the Turkish soldiers and
the disorganization of the army. He
says:
"We have witnessed the failure of
the Turk as a soldier. We have seen
him dying from hunger, worn out
with fatigue and running after he
abandoned his place of combat. I
never saw a more poignant picture
of human distress than presented by
these unhappy men, thrown into one
of the most terrible wars of history,
without food, without medical atten
tion, almost without guns and almost
without chiefs.
"And aV Scidler, I saw a soldier
whose right hsmd had been severed,
hold out', to US', begging for medical
help, the bleeding stump around
which he had tied a piece of twine.
"I saw long lines of famished
men who came out of tents begging
for a crumb of bread and staggering
away without a murmur of com
plaint when told there was none to
give. I saw a thousand wounded
leaving a, trail of blood as they drag
ged thcmsclvc toward Tchorlu. I saw
hundreds of others fall by the way
side dying pf wounds and fatigue.
"At Tchorlu there was no shelter
and nothing "'lo cat. All the houses
were closed, the population had fled
and those that remained barricaded
themselves within trembling with
fear. Soldiers knocked vainly at the.
barred doors. Groups shivering with'
cold tried the doors of stables to
seek refuge; even the stables were
inhospitable. Refugees smashed their
way into shops and devoured all
found, including raw vegetables and
caudles and sucked at pieces of
greasy wood.
"I never saw such an image of an
inferno. I don't know whether the
accusations of massacre arc exact
but so far I observed, I can only
affirm not only have Turks commit
ted no excesses but I believe no
army lit the world under such fright
ful circumstances would have been
more moderate, more docile."
