P'e-
Gray doubts are expressed in mll-
' itary circles and repeated oven in
I the, Turkish capital as f whether the
remnants of the Immense army of the
6ltan will make any serious attempt
to hold this line.
Foreigners In Constantinople fear
for the safety of the Christian popula
tions of the Turkish towns, and the
European powers have taken stops In
this connection by dispatch of war
ships to Salonlki, Constantinople and
ether Turkish ports for the protec
tion of their citizens.
This is the most pressing question
of the moment One correspondent in
Constantinople voices the fear of Eu
ropeans in that city that the Turkish
retreat from Tchatalja might result
in the outbreak of what is no longer
an army, but a mob.
Old residents of Constantinople, who
k . kn,Dv tho Turks thoroughly, say for-
Jk eign warships could afford some pn-
ZM . taction at SalonikI, Constantinople and
U other i orts, but declare the widely
M scattered missions nnd Christian pop-
H uiations arc already ser'ously endan-

tvjl delay them somewhat They had,
however, similar difficulties to con-

. Armies Converging.
.i Annies are converging from three
' ; directions on Salonlki. Euiopeac pow-
ers are now keeping In touch with
o a iew to acting in concert when the
i! ! opportune moment arrives. Bulga
ria, however, has let it be known that
' Turkey must negotiate with the al-
: ' lied Balkan nations directly, so that
nil Turkey can do is to prepare to
) look after their own interests when
: the war is over.
i ; The belief is held by some diplo
mats that the Bulgarian army will
! be compelled to enter Constantinople
5 by military and other considerations.
' , While the Bulgarians disclaim any
J ambition to retain ConsLintlnople,
f. : tbey consider that the quickest way
, of arranging peaco will be to dlc-
!EI ('. tr.te it to Turkey in its own capital.

; f able at the same time to protect the
! Christian residents there.
I j ; DECISIVE BATTLE VON.
E ; ' 1 ondon. Nov. 1. The decisive bat-
3-; tie of the war has apparently been
S !''' fought and won, says a Sofia dispatch
H t, lo the Times. Tho Turkish retreat
nf rventuallv became a complete rout
! The Bulgarians followed up the pnr-
jn i; suit energetically, severely punching
TJJ he panic-stricken Turks nnd caplur-
f j' iig great quantities of guns, flags,
vjli munitions of war and prisoners
I It Is leported that Tchorlu has been
taken and lhat the Bulgarians are ad
vancing on Tchatalja. The Bulgarian
cavalry advancing on Kirk-Kllisseh
and Kski-Baga reached Lule Burgas
Tuesdav morning. The cavalry was
followed by the bulk of the combined
armies of Generals Dimitriff and Ko
' vatcheff later In the day. Here they
encountered the main Turkish army
1 under Nazlni Pasha,
' The whole Turkish force numbered
1. "0,000, the Bulgarians being ahout
i equal A great series of battles then
I began, extending over an araa of about
J 15 miles. The fighting continued for
7 more than 18 hours without cessa-
i tion. The Bulgarians, made confident
J by recent victories, attacked with
I ?reat impetuosity the Turkish posl-
J tlons, which extended from Lule Bur
fa ' asc on the south to Bunarhlssar on
h the north. , t .
'Mi S The Turks appear to have resisted
H with groat obstinacy, but eventually
I ve wav all along the lino and rc
S i treated in disorder. The news of the
Bfllf: lctorv was rocelveU in Sofia without
IHy publb? rejoicings. Fears arc expect-
mf fed that in the hour of triumph Bulga-
ria ma now, as in IS89, be deprived
of the reward of her victory.
Rumors of the Imminence of Rus
sian and Austrian mobilization gain
ground and no great confidence is felt
that the powers of the triple entente
will secure fair play for those who
risked everything in the cause of free
dom. In Sofia the wounded are arrivlns
literally in thousands. All the lar
eoi public and many private buildings
have been transformed into hospitals.
Even at that, some have to be laid
on tho bare floors The wounded from
the last great battle have yet to arrive.
NEWS REACHES VIENNA
Vienna, Nov 1. Details of the great
battlq in Thrace are given by the
Reichspost correspondent at the front
The Bulgarian staff chose the neigh
borhood of Lule Burgas as the center
of gravity. Therefore all their avail
able strength around Adrianople. as
well as the greater part of the forces
were concentrated there.
This shifting of the center of grav
ity to the right wing wag caused by
a displacement which had occurred In
the Turkish army.
The Turkish front originally direct
ed north was turned to cover tho line
of retreat over Istrandia nnd Tcha
talga By this change of front the
Bulgarian plans to cut off the Turk
ish tinny were checked, but as the
Turks made tho attack before their
army was properly grouped the Bul
garians had an opportunity to defeat
the Tnrkibh loit wine: completely In
the, PlaLDsp.fLul.Bjjgga?.."
Inx-onsequance of this the Turkish
eastern whig 1b retreating to Serai
and Istrandia Nino divisions 01
Turkish reserves have been ordered
to the coDter to impede the Bulgari
ans' advance The battle front which
vesterday was between Lule Burgas
and Visa is now between Tchorlu and
Istrandia.
The Neu Frle Presse correspondent
at the Bulgarian headquarters thus
explains the defeat:
'Eosldcs the bad supply arrange
ments and the disaffection among the
officers on account of political tenets
two measures of the 'Young Turk' i-p-sime
were responsible for the demor
alization of the Turkish army. The
first wns the admission of non-Mohammedans
to the army since child
hood they have been the sworn foes
of the Ottoman state and these troopr
from the beginning of the war proved
unreliable, going over 10 the enemy's
camp In masses
"The second measure was the dis
missal of old Turkish officers, who,
although not highly intelligent, yet
maintained the contact between the
officers' corpj and tho soldiers and
were always capable in war time
These were sacrificed by the Young
Turks and replaced by Young Turk
officers. Recently Turkey recognized
her error and ordered the recall of
these officers, but it was, alreadv too
late."
Sofia Nov. 1. Details thus far ot
the lout of the Immense Turkish army
by the Bulgarians show that the Bul
garians were numerically fox infer
ior. The Turkish army is reported to
have aggregated 200,000 men It in
cluded the garrison that had retreat
ed from the fortross or Kirk Kllisseli,
as well as the main body of Turkish
troops that had advanced from Con
stantinople. It comprised practically
Ihe whole of tho Turkish troops re
maining In Europe apurt from the
garrisonB of Adrianople, Salonlki,
Monastir. Janina, Scutari and a few
other town3.
This great army was under the per
sonal command of Nazlm Pasha, min
ister of war and commander In chief,
who was assisted by some of the ab
lest Turkish generals.
The fight opened with the discov
ery by the Turks of a number of Bul
garian cavalry scouts. The. Turks
brought in their oulpoatB and those
were followed by lines of Bulgarian
skirmishers, who were succeeded by
the main Bulgarian army In fighting
formation.
Tho battle, which was destined to
last several days and result In the
defeat of tho Turks, was soon in prog
reds nil along the line.
The Bulgarian troops frequently de
livered fierce attacks, somotimes at
ono point, sometimes at another, along
tho Turkish line extending from Lule
Bergas to Serai.
The TurklBh troops offered desper
ato rsl3tancc but woro unaUle to
withstand the onslaught of the Bul
garians and finally they fled In great
disorder toward Tchorlu. In tho south
The losses of the Ottoman army '
reported to have been enormous in
dead, wounded and prisoners, as well
as ammunition and other supplies.
The capture of a third Turkish mil
itary train near Lule Bergas before
the battle wns an Immense advantage
to tho Bulgarians, as It furnished
them with fore facilities for the trans
portation' of . their' trooHB and bup-
piles to the district where the fighting
took place.
WAY IS OPEN.
Kustendje, Roumanla, Nov. 1. (By
Wireless from Constantinople, OcL 31,
11 p. m.) The defeat of the Turkish
army under Nazim Pasha opens the
way to Constantinople for the Bulga
rian troops. This will, in tho opinion
of diplomats, bring about European
complications.
The most Immediate danger con
cerns the position of this city. Most
authorities agree that no renl defense
can be made along be Tchatalja line,
supposed to protect the capital.
In the event of hordes of beaten
and demoralized soldiers falllns back
on the caiptal it is difficult to focr
sce what could save the city from sack
and pillage This fear is present with
inhabitants, who believo that the fate
of the Turkish empire hangs in the
balance.
It is reported that a secret meet
ing was held recently in the mosque
of Fatloh, the most fanatical quartci
of Stamboul, where Inflammatory
speeches were delivered by Mussel-'
man priests, who advised a rising
against the Christians-
