constantinople. November t??The
threat. of the Turks t abandon Con?
stantinople entirely, which was made
by the Ottoman foreign minister to
an ambassador yesterday, is bettered to
have been intended to stimulate the ac?
tion of the powers in the matter of
Intervention between the belligerents.
In the opinion of close observers, the
military position of the Turks does not
warrant a% belief in their ability to stop
the Bulgarian advance toward tne cap?
ital, if Cxar Ferdinand! of Bulgaria
really aspires t othe onquest of the
elty.
The Turk lab head quart res staff has
decided to take up Its position Imme?
diately behind the town of Thatalja
and to wait there the coming fight with
the Bulgarian troops.
The left wing and centre of the re?
treating Turkish army are said to
have made their retirement in good
order, but the troops forming the right
wing were in a state of panic They
achieved considerable success in the
fighting, bat finding themselves with?
out food, lied to the south, abandoning
everything.
Should the Seeing troop be allowed
to reach oCnstantl nople, the conse?
quences, ft Is thought, would be dis?
astrous .as they might spread the panic
among the troops who have thus far
remained steady.
The Turkish sold ires plsce uuch of

Bee of searchlligths by the Bulgarians.

Firs transports conveying Turkish
troops which weed sent to Jtidta last

Washington. November 5.?Cabinet
makers already are busy conjuring
with name* it thosn who will share
with Wilson In shaping the policy of
the next administration. Necessarl-y
this is purely gossip, but the Cabinet
builders are none the less active in
pointing out the persons and the ele?
ments available as Cabinet material.
One of the available elements em?
braces those who were conspicuous
party figures at the Baltimore conven?
tion, including Speaker Clark. Chair?
man Underwood, of the Ways and
means Committee; William J. Bryan.
Governor Foas, of Massachusetts; Gov?
ernor Harmon, of Ohio, and some
others. It is generaUy assumed, how
t ever, that Speaker Clark and Chalr
' man I'nderwood would prefer to con
, tinue their wsrk In Congress especially
I now that the legislative program on
i the tariff and other questions is like

j Mr. Bryan, one of the I>emocratio

Another element from which Cabinet
material is being suggested embraces
those who have been prominently

notably Chairman McCombs. of the
I Democratic National Committee; lte

; number of others who bore the >i>runt

campaign.

TAFT FORMS PUN
10 REVIVE PARTY
He Refuses to Believe That It
Will Die With Present
Defeat.
Columbus. Ohio, November 6.?De?
feated, but far from discouraged.
President Taft already formed plans
for holding together and strengthening
j the Republican party. The plans are
j indefinite and still vague, but he de
, clared to-night to friends "Who accom
j panied him North from Cincinnati, that
! the party will continue to exist: that
it will be as active as in the pas% and
that there is no reason to believe that
Its chances of future success are not
excellent
j So far as ths President's plan Is con
; cerned he hopes to see organized a
! "national Republican Club*' entirely
I apart from the Republican National
j Committee, which shall cherish the
' principles of the party and be a scarce
of political activity, not only during
, election years, but at all times. To a
: suggestion that he might be the Re
I publican party's nominee in 191S, the
! President replied with a smile, but
made no comment. He laughingly re?
peated his intention of returning to
! Cincinnati and fhe practice of law.
; The President Is convinced that the
task of President-elect Wilson will not
be easy. He said to-night he earnest
i ly hoped Mr. Wilson would not call an
I extra session of Congress to revise the
' tariff. He wished, he said, to see the
present prosperity continue as long as
I possible. I
Mr. Taft declared that Mr. -Wilson:
i would face a Congress made up to a|
' large extent of untried men. who have'
I come to believe in "histrionic public?
ity" and who believe that to show
their faith with the people they ?noat
at times be "insurgents" and oppose,
t!5e progr?Tn of the leaders.
A Traits KrTort* to Redaee TarlST. ,
I The President was particularly rn-'
j terewted in any tariff revision program.
! and laughed when he said he was:
I eagerly awaiting the Democratic ef- ?
I forts to reduce the schedules of that ,
I "iniquitous Payne-Aldrlch raw."
Asked If he did not consider Mr. Wil- 1
I son more conservative than radical.
; the President told the following story
j about Senor Zias, head of the radical
party In Cuba:
I "21 as was campaigning once.** said
j th? President, land was accused of j
! being a conservative.
I " 1 am not a conservative.* said Zias. j
! i am a radical. I must speak as a
radical on the platform to keep my,
! followers, but In office I am not a
I radical.- ?
I The President left Columbus at 5:?:
for Washington. He expected to stay'
; there, with but few trips away from j
j the White House until March 4.
He announced to-day that be will
? not visit the Panama Canal during the'
Christmas holidays, as he had planned.;
; and authorised Congressman Sherley. |
of Kentucky, a caller on his private.
car, who was en route to Panama, to,
i give Colonel Ooethars his "kind re- j
i sard*.'" I
1 Even In the moment when it became
I apparent that <Vrremor Wilson was
going to win. President Taft did not
forget his philosophy and good humor. ;
i Here is a story of how the President
' looked at ths itt nation Just about that
J time, told J?y a friend to-day:
"We've got to find some comfort In
? this," the President is reported to have
; said "I'll he very glad to tide down
Pennsylvania Avenue wtth President
j Wilson it would not have been so
: easy if t hires had be.n different, but

same."

Oyster Boy. November 8.?Colonel
Roosevelt surveyed the field of battle
to-day and gathered as much of the
j story of yesterday's defeat as he could
piece together. His lieutenants in each
State wired to him' their reports. In
many cases incomplete, and to-night
Colonel Roosevelt still was in doubt
; as to just what the Progressive party
< had been able to accomplish in its
I first campaign.
I There was nothing of the aspect of
: a beaten general and no hint of defeat
in his manner. Colonel Roosevelt said
he wants to tell his supporters every?
where what he thinks of the outcome
? and the outlook. The only reason
I that he did not do so to-night was that
' he had not the facts at hand.
"I want to find out just where we
] stand first.v h*. exclaimed. "The re
: turns are far from complete. When 1
have all the facts accurately I shall
make a statement."
The on^vthlna; which was accept?
ed as "asatied fact at Sagamore Hill
I to-day was that the fight was to go on.
What methods Colonel Roosevelt will
adopt are unknown even to himself.
"Of course, the fight will go on." he
said with an air of fiality. "I the
ed the cause must triumph."
Close friends of Colonel Roosevelt
said he was'not surprised at Uovernor
I Wilson's election, because he was at
I no time confident, they asserted, that
: the new party would be able to win its
' first fight. The showing which the
party made, his friends said, had pleas
' ed rather than displeased its leader.
Colonel Roosevelt expects to dfop
back for the winter into the quiet life
j at home. wh<ch he led before the cam?
paign. wlf?l trips to Now York trace or!
twice a week. He probably will be!
called ufTn onee a month or oftenen

For Long Walk in
Country.
Princeton. N. J.. November S.?Presl
j dent-Eiect Woodrow Wilson turned
j away from an avalanche of telegrams
j and messages of congratulation for
i two hours to-day and went off for a
I brisk walk. For five miles ho walked,
swinging a heavy black cane, which,
came to grief on the fourth mile, when
Captain "Bill" McDonald, Texas ranger;
and bodyguard, tried to kill a rattle?
snake.
The Governor spied the snake curl?
ing through the leave and pointed It
out to the captain, who borrowed the
Governor's cane and killed it. but in
! doing so he broke the cane. The Gov?
ernor's walk exhilerated him, he said.
I The strain of the campaign and the
1 excitement of election day had kept
i htm pretty much indoors of late. It
j was with a long stride and vigorous
! swing that he set out from his home
; and out through the university campus
to the woded stretches of country to
! the south of Princeton.
The President-elect stopped at TJnl
(versity Field and saw the varsity
eleven go through "secret practice."
As he sat with Captain McDonald In
the empty grandstand three football
coaches came over to congratulate
him. They were Ross McClave. "Beer'
Wheeler and John Poe. famous among
Princeton stars of years ago.
Apparently Very Happy. j
I As Governor Wilson sauntered into
I open country he seemed for the first I
! time to relax from the strain of the {
last few days. Obviously he was hap- j
py. He swished his way through the ;
i sea of autumn-tinted leaves Te Jested j
