in Victory for Balkan

London. October 24.?A three days'
battle and a Bulgarian turning move?
ment baa raaulted. according to Sofia
accounts. In the fall of Kirk KUisseh.
and the capture of the Turkish garri-1
?on numbering 50.OO0 men. That ao
many Turks have been taken is re?
garded aa Improvable, and the more
likely report la that the Turks re?
treated in the direction of Bunarhissar,
to the southeast.
The capture of tb's stronghold, to
which th* Turks attached almost th<=
same importance as to Adrianople. was;
confirmed to-night from Constantinople
In an official communication explaining
that the Turkish army at Kirk KUis?
seh. in attempting to split the enemy's
forces, discovered that they were In
greater strength than had been antici?
pated. Tba Turka. therefore, retired to
the south to await reinforcements.
The news of the Bulgarian victory
Itss caused great rejoicing in Sofia,
?where it is expected the fail of Adri
anople win soon follow. It is generally
assumed that Abdulah Pasha Is still
engaged in bringing up his main army
to Adrianople.
An interesting situation will develop I
?hould the Turks be compelled to
svacuate Adrianople. It is supposed
that the next stand of the Turks will
be made at Demotica. twenty-five
miles south of Adrianople, an import?
ant strategic position on the road to
Constantinople.
Both the Servians and the Turks
claim great victories at Kumanova. the
Servians declaring they have captured
the town,"and the Turks claiming they
have repulsed the enemy. Late, re?
ports Indicate that heavy fighting is
still proceeding In this district. The
Greeks are operating from Arts to?
ward Janina Metcheck and the neigh?
borhood of Grlmbovo.
* Fight!aa; Is TerrtSe.
Sofia. October 24.?In an engagement
Tuesday at. Marash, at the junction of
the Maritza and Arda Rivers, close to j
Adrianople, the Bulgarians were at-!
tacked by 8.000 Turks After an hourj
of heavy artillery and rifle fire, the'
Turka were defeated and fled In dla- j
order, leaving the field strewn with!
dead and wounded. The Bulgarians
captured 300 prisoners, a doxen quick-j
fircrs and quantities of munitions. I
Many Turks drowned themelvea ini
the river because they believed thai
Bulgarians massscred their prisoners.;
Details of the capture of Klrk-KUis-:
seh are meagre. An unofficial eati
easts puts the Bulgarian casualties at!
3.000. The fighting has been continu?
ous since Tuesday. The Bulgarians
made a steady advance throughout the
operations, but at a great sacrifice of
life. On Tuesday the first army under
General Ivanoff attacked the outer;
works of Adrianople in two large
bodies. Another strong Bulgarian
column attacked the Turkish positions
la tba Vilayet on the Arda River, and
rolled the whole Turkish position up.
The Bulgarians crossed the satsd
banks of Arda. fifteen miles southwest
of Adrianople. and. advancing, sur?
prised the Turks, who retreated to
that city, leaving 100 dead and 160
prisoners.
righting was resumed all along the
Una at dawn Wednesday. The north?
ern damns captured several advanced
Turkish posts at the point of the bay?
onet and pressed on towards Adrian?
ople. The Turks delivered a counter?
attack towards the northeast, b-it were
repulsed.
In the face of a heavy fire from the
Turkish batteries the Bulgarians fol?
lowed the retiring Turks, whoso lo?ses
were enormou?. owing ti th? well
placed Bulgarian o/jicg-firers.
General I>tmltrieff th"n ordered an
advance. The eastern army win
massed to the east and west of the
road from Tlronva to Klrk-Kilisseh.
and the battle opened on this side.
The Bulgarians opened with artillery
fire by night, having carefully piaceu
tb-lr guns in po?ttion beforehand, and,
covered by a h-avi .-unnonad. . ihe In?

"Dear Mr. McAdoo:
"My attention has been called to
the statement that I have become a
, member of the Knights of Columbus.
i This, of course, 1 not true. I have not
j been asked to Join the order, either;
as an active or honorary member, and
am not eligible, because I am not a
Catholic. I must warn my friends
: everywhere that statements of thin
kind are all campaign inventions, de?
vised to serve a special purpose. This
! particular statement 'has been critl- J
clsed in selected quarters to create
the impression that I am hoping to
identify myself politically with the
great Catholic body. In other quar?
ters all sorts of statements are beinjt
set afloat to prove that I am hostile
to the Catholics. It is a very petty
and ridiculous business.
"If all these fabrications could be
brought together they would make
i very amusing reading. They would
leave a very flat taste In the mouth,
for they would entirely neutralize one
another and prove that I was nothing
j and everything. I am a normal man,
following my own natural courses of
! thought, playing no favorites and try?
ing to treat every creed and class with
impartiality and respect.
"Very sincerely yours.

OF TARIFF DILLS
Taft Lauds His Own Course to
Members of Hardware
Associations.
TELLS THEM HIS REASONS
Believes Passage of Measures
j Would Have Driven Pros?
perity Away.
I Atlantic City. X. j. October 24_
President Taft defended his vetoes of
; the tariff measures in the last Con
} gress in a letter to the American j
Hardware Manufacturers' Association'
\ and the National Hardware Associa
i tion, which was read at to-day's ses
sion of the joint convention of these
bodies. It read in part:
"I am very glad to send a message
of greeting to the members of the
American Hardware Manufacturers'
Association and the National Hard?
ware Association on the occasion of
their annual joint convention.
"Members of your association wrote
the other day that what thla country
needs is international peace. There
can be no such peace in the albsence
: of national prosperity, and I am glad
' to believe that the members of your
association are doing their full ssssfSj
; to welcome the prosperity which is!
just at our door, by maintaining our.
h present economic business bas's and {
! by the encouragement of expansion!
and progress through legitimate use1
I of capital.
"I am a firm believer In a tariff
board or tariff commission. I don't i
i contend that the tariff can be taken
out of politics in the sense that it will
neve- be the subject of political con-!
troversv. Men differ radically as to'
the economical wisdom of a protective ^
ta.r:ff or a tarifT for revenue only, and
that must always t-e the subject for:
discussion. Put there Is a means of)
