ONE OF BLOODIEST
WARS III HISTORY
In Six Weeks of Fighting More
Than 30,000 Men Are
[Special Cable to Tbe Times-Dispatch ]
London, November 16.?More than
30,000 men have been killed and more
than 160,000 wounded In the Baiter,
war thus far, according; to estimates
to-day by experts, who said tBelg fig?
ures probably erred on the side of
Exactness, it was agree<i. is impos?
sible, as each side has exaggerated |
the enemy's and minimized Its own j
losses. But two or three correspond?
ents, and perhaps a half-dozen foreign
military observers, have been permit
tol to see any actual lighting. No of?
ficial casualty lists have been issued.
The losses in killed and wounded
were placed by the best judges, how?
ever, classified by nationalities, sub?
stantially as follows:
Country. Killed. Wounded.
Turks . 20.000 100.000
Bulgarians . !?,?> i 40,000
Servians . 3,500 16.500
Montenegrins . 800 5.200
Greek . 300 2,200
Totals . 34.600 163.900
This roll of dead and wounded was
recorded in almost exactly six weeks,
one of the longest for so brief a space
nf time In any war In history.
No allowance was made for the num?
ber of victims of the various mas?
sacres charged against both sides.
That list, from all accounts, has been
an appalling one. but reports have been
o- yi t to.i Indefinite tor the besing ol
A heavy allowance must also be
made, the authorities said, for those |
who have succumbed to starvation and ;
disease. Until more detailed inform- |
ation has been received from the Con?
stantinople side the score of those al?
ready dead from these causes will also I
remain the merest guesswork.
Probably, the estimators surmised, '
the massacre, starvation and cholera !
victims will foot up three or four
times the total of . oth killed and i
wounded in actual battle. j
Military men placed tne financial
cost of the war. in excess of the ex?
penses of keeping up the Balkan
states' regular military establishments,
at IL'.500,000 daily since the war be-1
gan. or about tlM.Sse.9SS thus far. I
Of course this did not include losses
through the prostration of trade, the'
destruction of property or the value
of the services of the men killed or j
maimed for liTe.

reports from that town seemed to make
it an easy task for the Montenegrins
to capture it. but only recently the
Turkish commander, who has put up
so grim a fight, was quoted as saying
that he will hold the fortress until his
last man falls, even If he is ordered
by his government to surrender, and
that he will never fall alive into tile
hands of the Montenegrins.
It is reported that Russia has for?
mally recognised the Greek occupation
of Salonlca. and If Greece intends to
remain there, the Austrian contention
that Servia's desire for a seaport might
be secured by obtaining one on th*
Aegean Instead of the Adriatic would
seem to be discounted..
The Greeks' army in Epirus, halted
for a while by the heavy floods in thai
