OTTOMAN EMPIRE SEEKING

ASK FOR AN
Rending ivav Negotiations an Armlw
ih-e May Be Arranged
LONDON, Nov. 14. Turkey has
now formally appealed to Bulgaria
for peace, thus forestalling the tardy
action of the Kuropean court toward
mediation. No armistice has yet been
concluded! difficulties have arisen in
regard to terms. It Is said that Bul
garia demands the evacuation of Ad
rlanopie, Sontari and Monastlr, as a
condition of agreeing to an armistice.
Negotiations, however, continue.
The censorship Is again exeeedingly
severe, and It Is difficult to arrive at
any correct idea of the military posi
tion. The fall of Adrlanople is ru
mored from both Servian and Turkish
sources, but this is still unconfirmed.
Another report says the Bulgarians
have occupied Hademkeul, twenty-one
miles from Constantinople. If this is
true. It Is a very Important caplure,

Should an attack on Monastlr be
made, the Turks are not expected to

is likely to be the same as Salonlkl's.
The Greeks continue their march
toward Janlna. They have now taken
Motsovo, a few miles lo the northeast.
A report from Bucharest places tho
Bulgarian losses In the war at a far
greater figure than has yet been es

morning session of the tu.u of h o.
J.iiii.a. Ihe Nowala eiiiior, charged
Willi Mo murder of airs. Irene (Jo-
iii-cu, iiis advertising solicitor, was
consumed b Attorney Tillotson of
Nowata, ami Attorney Rider, of vi
nlta, reading to the jury the testimony
ot tin .i- fsndant given at the prelim
inary bearing last April. In that tes
timony Jefliles guve a complete ex
planation of Ills mis from the time ho
first ni.-t Mrs. (ioheen, until his ar
rest. The Introduction of this evi
dence w as g surprise to the defensa
for it practically admits the truthful
ness of the prisoner's statement und
was so held by Judge Hudson.
After the Introduction of tills evi
dence the state rested and the de
fense made a genera! demurrer to tns
slate's case and tho remainder of the
ali.-rnooii session was devoted to the
arguments of counsel. In ruling on
the motion of too defense, Judge Hud
son stilted that the Introduction of
Jeffries' testimony by the stute might
be a very serious mutter If the stute
expected to secure a conviction, for
the stute practically admits tile ovl-
denoe Jeffries previously gavo to be
bo true, und therefore each act und
movement which formerly appealed
as fastening tin. gu!,t upon the pris.
oner were In part destroyed.
Judge Hudson wus not willing to
tuke the case from Hie Jury and over
ruled the demurrer and the introduc
tion of the evidence of the defense
egan at the night session. The de
fense w in attempt to prove a compute
alibi for Jeffries, covering the entire
night of April 8. They state they will
prove the tta. ks were made by Inno
cent parties passing thhe field when
the body was fougd. The Jeffries
horse was neve,- out of the barn the
entire night and therefore the tracks
wile not those of Jeffries' horse.
The defendant stated tills evening,
giving the first Interview since his
arrest, (hat Ihe entire case Is one ot
persecution! not prosecution; that tho
attorney general had gone so far us
o suggest to the prosecution that Uo-
heen be placed under orrest.
Jeffries points to his llfo of sev
eral years In Nowata as proof of his
Innocence, outside of positive evi
dence which will bo Introduced.
The general feeling la that Lea Oo-h-en,
the murdered woman's husband,
should be arrested. Tho statu has
fulled almost completely to remotely
connect Jeffries with the crime.
Postmaster Walpola of Pueblo, Colo,
arrived In the city this morning for
the Jeffries trial. He has with him
for presentation to the Jury tomorrow
several forwarding orders of mull in
Which the testimony that (ioheen wus
In that city the day of tho murder Is
tins.-. The order purporting to have
been signed by (ioheen wus similar
to an order gh en biter by John Prln
gle. the show man. The defense will
Insist that Len Coheen ho placed un
der arrest for the murder and If Ihe
county attorney of Nowata county
does nut consent to the arrest, fur.
ther steps will be taken.
The defense expects to complete
their evidence Friday night.
