ARTILLERY DUEL
NOT YET Ell?
Report That Armistice
Has Been Arranged
Appears Unfounded.
TURKS MAY MAKE
FURTHER STAND
Recent Demoralization Remedied
and Army Is Well Supplied
With Food and Ammunition.
Prospects of European Dis?
tensions Become Daily
More Menacing.
Loa Aon. November lt.?The report
that an armistice had been agreed to
by the Bulgarian and Turks alone the
Tehatalja lines for the burial of the
dead appears to have been unfounded.
Uispatcha* from Nazlm Fa*ha, the ?
Turkish Commander-in-chief. show I
that the artillery duel continued
throughout Ohe day. The Turks claim
successes against the Bulgarians, but
there is nothing to Indicate that the
Bulgarians have made any serious at?
tempt to penetrate the lines. The
bottle may be ended at any moment
Its Turkey accepting the allies' terms j
for an armistice, which Is said to In-1
elude the surrender of the Tehatalja
lines, Adrianople, iMirajzo and Scutari..
There Is a possibility, however, that
Turkey may decline to surrender Tcha- '<
taljs. While her western army has,
been completely defeated, she still pos?
sesses, according to the correspondents
at the front, a homogeneous army be- j
hind the Tehatalja fortifications, largely I
composed of some of her best fighting'
material from the Asiatic provinces,
which has not yet been in action.
Moreover, the demoralization and dis?
organization which followed the Kirk
KUllsseh and L,ule Burgas retreats ap?
pear to have been remedied, and the
army la now well supplied with fooU
agid ammunition.
May Hak* Farther ?tan*.
Under these circumstances the Porte'
?nay be induced to make a further
stand In the hope of securing easier,
pear* conditions. evidently Bulgar4*
has brought up all her available forces!
to attack Tehatalja. Including some of
the Servian troops, but the task of
crushing the Turkish defense may
prove a difficult one.
The prospect of European dissensions)
arising out of the settlement of the
numerous territorial claims to he ar?
ranged after the war becomes daily
more menacing. Austria has no* pre?
sented an actual ultimatum to Servla
setting a time limit for a reply to
certain inquiries which she baa for-,
mulated. but short of that the reis.-;
tiona between the two countries are
rare strained, and Servla's evident In- ;
tendon toward Durasso will be still
another defiance of Austria.
Cuccol*. in the Austrian house, i
warned the members to be ready for;
the rise of powerful navies. This is:
one of the signs of rearrangement of
Soutbeastern^Europe as a result of the
war. which Is likely to keep the Euro-;
pean chancellories In a state of tea
?ion for a Ion?; time to come. I
Both Austria and Russia are taking |
measures so they will be prepared fori
any eventualities. It is reported to-'
night from St Petersburg that Russia
Je purchasing several hundred guns
abroad.
According to a dispatch from Bel?
grade, the disposition of Xonaatlr was,
not provided for by prior agreement by j
the allies, and likely win cause trou- ;
fele. The Servians wish to establish
?festr claims, and It Is intended the
King of Servla shall make a triumphal j
entry lato the city.
On the other hand, the Bulgarians'
claim that Von astir Is situated In aI
predominantly Bulgarian district, while
the Greeks contend that the leading,
part of the population is of Greek ns-,
?tlooalrty
The Austrian correspondents constd- ?
er the breach with Servla over the,
treatment of the Austrian consuls se- i
rtoua A Budapest message to the;
?Pally Telegraph says:
"Count von Berchthold Is wont to
set without faltering when the time
for talking Is psst. The conversations
with the Servian government?If there

rapidly are drawing to an unsatisfac?
tory close. Servia will have it in her
power for a .-ouple of days longer to
offer apologies and make amends for
her breach of International law, but
after the lapse of thst brief delay the
Austro-Huna-artan g.-vernmcr.t will de-I
iiberately proceed to enforce rights
which even uncivilised people respect. ?
and vindicate their honor from a wan

Slips Up Behind Him and

Los Angel??. Cal., November Ml?
Armed with an Infernal machine con?
taining enough dynamite to destroy
an entire city block, a bottle of nitro
glycerin and a 46-calfore revolver, a
masked maniac took possession of the
Central Police Station to-day and held
it for more than an hour, while hun?
dreds of occupants of the building, and
those for blocks around, panic-stricken
sought safety In distance.
When Detective James Hoslck
knocked the man unconscious with a
leather "billy." after slipping up be?
hind him. the fuse of the Infernal ma?
chine was automatically ignited, but
Detective Samuel L. Brown grabbed
the box. with its fuse sharply splut?
tering, and hurled it into the street.
Sticks of high power dynamite scat?
tered over the pavement, while hun?
dreds of spectators stood apparently
paralyzed by fright Through chance
there was no explosion, and Brown
continued kicking the sticks of dyna?
mite and Jumping upon the fuse until
he broke the connection
Manacled to a cot In the hospital
to-night the would-be dynamiter, who
gave his name as Albert Henry Davis.
Is suffering with several severe scalp
wounds, but the police surgeons say
his injuries are not serious.
Davis entered the outer office of
Chief of Police Sebastian. His face
and head were completely covered
with a grotesque mask and he carried
In his arms a large box covered with
cloth. The box was strapped around
his shoulders, and resembled a small
band organ.
Suserts Practical Jake
First startled and then aroused by
the strange spectacle. Police Sergeant
R. C. Hilf, who suspected a practlcai
Joke, asked the man what he wanted.
"I've got enough dynamite in here
to blow yon all into eternity," he said,
"and 1 want you to send for the high?
est official of the fifiuthera Pacific
Railroad.''
The masked visitor rested the box
on a filing cabinet, and Assistant Dis?
trict Attorney Rogham, who was *s
the office, started Joking with him.
"This is no ;oke," said Davis "I
mean business, and if you don't believe
it, try to take this away from me.
My hand Is fastened in this box. and
if I pull it out?bang: We all die."
A-hole had been cut in the box and
room left for the man's hand, which
was hidden In the box. Davis then
Walked into the office of Police Secre?
tary C E. Snivel/, which opens into the
private office of Chief Sebastian, and
repeated nie request that the head
official of the Southern Pacific be sum?
moned. Sruvely naked him if he had
any preference in the man he desired
to blow up. and he replied that he
only wanted the head man.
Snlvely then took down the telephone
receiver and pretended to hold a con?
versation with Paul Shoup, general
manager of the Pacific Electric Com?
pany. "Mr. Shoup Is busy, but he
will be here in about fifteen minutes."
said Snlvely.
"Well, he had better burr}." replied
Davis. "I'm getting nervous."
In the meantime Chief Sebastian, who
had a wr*ef conversation with the
man and realised that he was in ear?
nest, ordered the street roped off for
a block either way and took steps to
have the 10? prisoners in the prison
removed- Upstairs in the building two
Justices' courts were in session, arid
both courtrooms were crowded.

bailiff In Judge Chamber's court, where
a Ja. anese was having a preliminary
examination oa a murder charge be?

bailiff whispered to the Judge. "Court's
adjourned until to-morrw. Clear the
courtroom." ordered the Judge
promptly, and there was a rush for the
stairway. A smila- scene was enacted
in Justice pYedertcksen's court.
There was not enough' patrol wagons
to remove the prisoner* from the jail
to the Deal Ht'ghts prison, and two
street cars were sent for. It was an
orderly procedure, and the prisoners
were soon on their way to the Kast

which has been hearing the evidence

to-day when It returned a verdict of
murder In the first degree, after but
twenty minutes' deliberation. The gun?
men hoard the verdict pronounced
against them without showing any
emotion. They stood at tbe bar. look?

of the Jury made known the result of
their deliberations, and they continued
to stare stolidly in front of them until
the formalities of the proceedings were
concluded.

: ultimate fate Is determined.
' Meanwhile, they will occupy cells
near that ot the former police lieu

Although the Jury was actually out
of the court room an hour and five
minutes, it was but twenty minutes
after their retirement that word reach?
ed the clerk of the court that they
had arrived at a verdict. This was
a 1:5". o'clock, but Justice Goff was at
lunch, and he did not return until
three-quarters of an hour later.
The final day of the trial opened
with Justice G-ffs charge to the jury,
which occupied three hours. The
charge emphasized many points in the
testimony of the gunmen, which the
prosecution In Its summing up had
declared were discrepancies fatal to
j the credibility of their stories,
j "If the defendants' contention were
i true that Rose and his companions,
Webber, Vallon and Schepps shot Ro
j senthal. would he have invited them
j to the Metropole Hotel to the scene
of the shooting""' Judge Goff asked the
jury. -Did the defendants tell the truth
when they said they saw Rosenthal
shot and were near enough to dis?
tinguish the faces of those who did
the shooting, but did not see Rosenthal
fall?
