London, November IS.?Bulgaria and
Turkey liav.- agr?<-d upon an armistice, ;
according to a special news agen- y
disrate] which reached this city this
afternoon from BJcharest, Rumania.
As the censorship permits no news
t'? rapPS from the front, the situation
at the arene of the fightina- lr. the Bal?
kans is more perplexing; than ever to- .
nlsht."* yjafcsan exports have drifted in. j
l.owever. among them that Adrlanople j
has fallen, that the Bulgarians bad j
captur. d Hademkeul. the beadQuar- !
t.-rs jt the Turkish commander-ln- j
thief: that Xaxim Pasha the Turklsn
generalissimo, had capitulated, ana
that the Bulgarians, either by sea ->r
.and. had reachd the vicinity of KiUoe,
on the Black Sea coast, a short distance .
from t"ortstantlnople.
These reports are stil! without eon- .
ftrmation. A vague dispatch is pub-j
llahed stating that six forts al>ng the
Tchatlaja line have t>een captured after
?hat an described as kOPI'J sacrifices
on the part of the Bulgarians.
All th*- reports previously published ,
thro'igh the Vienna Rel-"hspost or em?
anating from other sources go to show
that the Bulgarians are having r.o easy
task. Nothing Is kiDwn as to whether
the battle continues. The Brit'sh ?-uv
ernment has received no news from the
aeat of war for aomr days.
What perhaps Is of graver impo't
than the progress of the hostilities
in Southeastern Europe, however, is
the reveiatijn of the tremendous rav?
ages cholera Is ma kins-. Dot only
among the destitute refugees who are
arriving dally in thousands at Constant
tlnople. but among the Turkish troop"
on the Tc natal Ja lines
It Is supposed that this danger well:
might suttee to give the Bulgarian j
commanders a pause and induce the j
Bulgarian government to arrange an J
armletice and negotiate peace, since,
all the practical objects for which the!
war was undertaken already hare -cm
secured, and it Is therefore useless*
to run the risk of an epidemic of cbol-j
era in the Bulgarian army for the j
sake of a formal entry to Constant!-J
nople. to avoid which. It Is believed, j
Turkey Is ready to agree to almost I
any terms. {

CHARGE AGAINST
PRESIDING ELDER
His Veracity Questioned
by Minister Accused
of Inefficiency.
WOMEN DO NOT GET
RIGHTS OF LAITY
Whole Question Is Laid on
Table by Overwhelming Ma?
jority?Case of Rev. J. F.
Valiant Not Disposed Of.
Ministers Received and
Characters Passed.
I/yhchbuftr, Vi, November 1'..?That
which eclipsed everything else in the
way of a special feature on the floor
of the Virginia Conference of the
Methodist Episcopal Church, South,
during the session of to-day was the
following statement made by Hsv. .1
F. Valiant, of Berlin, Md.. with refer?
ence to a letter written to him by
Rev. T. N. Potts, presiding elder of
the Kaetern Shore restrict: "I hold in
my hand a letter from Dr. Potts. The
whole letter is fals? from start to
finish. '
The arrival of th* hour for an order
of the day prevented the reading of
the letter to the conference, which h.'
was about to do. but he will be hearil
at a inter v -s:on. "Kills unusual oc?
currence or. the floor of trie confer?
ence grew out of the fact that l>r.
Potts had mad<: a motion that the con?
ference, locate Mr. Valiant, on the
erround of ineffl.flie.ncy. as a traveling
j>r? aoher.
Mr. Valiant, not being willing to be
located, was granted the privilege of
giving his reasons on the conference
floor why he should not be locate*!.
When T>r Potts made the motion that
Mr. Vailant be located. Mr. Valiant at
once asked that he be given the privi?
lege of speak in? to the conference In
his own defena*. Bishop L>enny grant?
ed him the privilege, stating that to
b? the right of every preacher under
such conditions.
Valiant Make? Defence.
Mr. Valiant stated that he had been
a traveling preacher in the confer?
ence for twenty-two yeara and that
the arraignment for Inefficiency as a
cause for hie location bad be*n brought
against him not only by one presiding
elder, but by three. He said next
ttwt in making his defense he bad put
In writing what he had to ejftr.
j He referred first in his written ac?
count to the disorganized condition of
a church which he had served recently,
and of how the ill-feeling existing be?
tween some of the members had been
a great hindrance In tha progress of
the work which he had attempted to
do. He cited as one instance an official
member of the church, whose dealing in
real estate transactions had been such
as to cause him to be considered dis?
honest, and that he. aa his pastor, had
felt that man should be removed, and
some one else be elected In his place.
He said that he had consulted Dr.
Potts about the matter, and that Dr.
Potts advised against the removal of
the official. He cited next an instance
where he had received word from Dr.
Potts that ten candidates at one placa
deolred to unite with the church, and
that when he went to find them he
could find only one candidate, and ho
had not yet united with the church
He said he was giving this simply as
Information and not with the desire
to question his word.
He then produced a letter which he
had received from Dr. Potts, and said,
"and this letter la false from start to
finish."
This expression was met with opposi?
tion by several members of the con?
ference, who claimed such charges
should not be allowed to be made by
one preacher against another on the
confeJrenc? floor, but that before a
committee was the proper place for
them to be made, if the making of
charges was necessary.
Bishop Denny held that a preacher1
recommended for location against his
will, had the right to make his defense
on the conference floor.
The hour for the memorial service
aa the order of the day having ar?
rived, Mr. Valiant retired from the
floor, and this matter of his defense
against location will be resumed at a
later session of the conference
Contrary to the expectation of many
visitors present when the order of the
nay arrived for the consideration of
the resolution with regard to granting
to the women of the church equal
right ertie the laity, bat In keeping
with the expectation of many of the
members of the conference, the whole
matter was laid on the table without
discussion.
W. W. Royal! read again the reso?
lution on this question that he had
read on Thursday.
After the reading. Dr. Royall spoke
to the question, and In beginning his
remarks, he said; "1 am in favor of
granting to these Codly *itn?ii all the
rights IMS thev are seeking-- He
said further that what he h:id to say

; Wa.-hington. November 15.?The
? t.'mtcu Daughters of the Confederacy,
in convention here to-day. voted unan?
imously to hold the tall convention In
New Organa. The New Orleans dele?
gation made a vigorous campaign for
the honor, and when the final vote
came won without opposition.
The New York delegation made an
effort to secure the convention for
New York City, but when it became
apparent that sentiment among the
delegate^ was strongly in favor of the
Louisiana city, the New Yorkers with?
drew.
To-day's sessions of the convention
wen- but meagrely attended, many of
the delegates making the trip to An?
napolis, where they were entertained
by Governor Goidsborough. of Mary?
land, and the Maryland Division of the
Daughters of the Confederacy. The
afternoon and evening eess'onj were
devoted largely to the routine reports
of committees.
Scheme to Raise Fund*.
A genera! scheme to raise funds for
the Confederate monument In Arling?
ton Cemetery waa adopted to-day by
the convention. The convention pass?
ed a resolution requesting that eacli
member of the organization contribute
50 cents to the fund during the next
year. This would ra'se enough money,
to complete the monument.
Colonel Hilary A. Herbert, chairman'
of the executive committee of the
Arlington Confederate Monument As?
sociation, presented a report to the
convention showing about $25.000 re
mnineol to be supplied for the build?
ing of the monument. The plan for
I raising the fund was immediately
evolved.
Mrs Matthew D. Scott, president- i
general of the Daughters of the Amev- i
lean Revolution, was a guest of the
convention, and made a brief speech i
urging c-o-operation between the

CAINIillK FOR
200.000 PEOPLE
Chamber to Back Annexation of I
45,000 People and New
Suburbs.
ADDS FIVE SQUARE MILES
Active Movement for Immediate:
Annexation to Start in
Ten Days.
That a well-organized, responsible!
campaign for the immediate annexation
of ftve sqnerevtrt?es of suburban fer
I ritory and 45.000 Inhabitants will be
actively Initiated within ten days by
the Chamber of Commerce, became
, known yesterday. Having- assurances
! that the new City Council is favor
ably disposed toward a liberal policy
of expansion, the chamber will organize
a committee to work with the Coun-|
cil and to co-operate with the territory I
knocking at Richmond's door tor ad
? ojgae in tiie hope that an amicable j
and satisfactory agreement can be j
reached between the several parties.
Should the territory Immediately ad- i
Jacent to the city limits, including
Swansboro, Woodland Heights. Mont
rasa Heights. Chestnut Hill. Highland
Park. Barton Heights. Glnter Park
and territory to the west of the city, be
assimilated as Is proposed. Rlonmond
would then have a total area of about
fifteen square miles?one of which is:
water?as compared to forty square
?atlas for Birmingham, and twenty-five
far Atlanta Based on the ratio of In- 1
crease shown by the last census. W |
T. I>abney. business manager of the
Chamber of Commerce, estimates that j
the present population of Richmond is
about 1S2.000. j
20?.s*s tat tPla.
With the territory as proposed an-1
nexed. this would give Richmond a I
300.000 population at a conservative j
estimate In 1915. which would prob-1
ably mean 226.000 at the next census;
taking. These figures astounding: as
they sound, are based on actual census
taking of the Hill Directory Company
and the returns of the census of 1*10.
Conservatively estimated, the five
square mil's of territory Immediately
bordering on tine city limit contain
to.SOS people, but It Is probable that
a census would actually show a greater
population than this
The determination to support the re-'
quests for annexation already made by
many of these suburbs was reached
by Ohe Chamber of Commerce only
after mature deliberation and careful
sftdy of conditions had disclosed the
neceaalty for expansion. According to
statistics. Richmond Is the most dense?
ly populate! city In the United Star s.
with the possPVe exception of Pater
'son. N. J.. whl^h is directly responsi- i
Me for the existing high rente
The experience of other American
cities has shown that a liberal area
onlv can supply homes for the masses.
In efforts to attract manufacturing con?
