JV In his palace; I in my office."
J Thus Kiamil Pasha, grand vizier of
r Turkey, has addressed the ambassa-
' dors of the powers. Kiamil Pasha ln-
i formed tl j nmbassadors In Constanti-
i nople that ho would maintain order
v . there until the end, according to a
i . dispatch to the Matin today. If, how-
q ever, t?ie Turkish capital should be
i occupied by the invaders, the grand
j vizier declares that he could not be
) nnswerable for what the exasperation
'' E of the population might lead to. Any-
Q I thing thai might happen then would

j General Mahmoud Mukhtar Pasha
H' was sent by Nazim Pasha, the com
i,; j mandcr-ln-chief, to notify the grand
I vizier that the Turkish army would
y'i not accept either mediation or inter
im , ventlon. According to a special dls

!l dlers would come to Constantinople
i and cannonade the offices to prevent

z.'; Kiamil Pasha decided to abandon the
i idea of asking the powers to intervene.
J; i The officers, who were sent into

- being reinstated, according to a dis-
' patch from Constantinople to tho Echo
j de Paris. They will do their utmost
to lick Into shape the fresh troopH be-
! . ing dragged into Nazim Pasha's army,
which is being reorganized behind the
j- ; lines at Tchatalja.
fj Ghazi Ahmet Muktar Pasha, the
Ivetearn victor of Kara in the Russo
Turklsh war of 1877. aud a former
grand vizier, explained the Turkish
defeats thus:
"The Yomg Turks liave ruined our
aimy. Formerly part of tho officers
camo from tho ranks and the remain
der from the military schools. The j
Young Turks did not like that sys
tem They bocan by pensioning or
finding other situations for the men
who had risen from the ranks and
replacing them with youngsters from
the military academy. During three
years about 1,500 Joined in this way.j
but all of them were tco young and
inexperienced.
."Our battulions of Infantry, which
nr'o S00 strong, had only Beven offl- j
cars each at the outbreak of the war,
wheroRS In the past they had alwayB
16 or 17. What could you expect our

ir ncd without food? for we have no
commissariat department. They could
H do only one" thing. They fled."

defending the city, after a desperate

suffered a large number of casualties.

reported to haver broken out in Con
stantinople, .where Kurd solrlcrs are
killing Christians In tho Galata quar
ter, according to a special dispatch
from Bucharest, Rumania, puSlfilicd
by the Paris Midi'uuder reserve. Some
buildings of the Turkish capital are
said to have been set on fire The
banks and foreign embassies arc

troops who arc still obedient to dis
cipline. 25.000 Turks Surrender
Athens. Nov. 9. The capitulation of
the Turkish fortress of Saloniki. as
well as Fort Karaburun. was signed
last night, according to an official dis

Twenty-five thousand Turkish troops
surrendered.

Turks Lose Heavily.
Uskup, Nov. 9. The battle which
resulted in the capture of the Turkish
city of Prilip (or Perlcpo) b the i
Servian troons was one of the most I
severe that has been fought on this i
side of the Balkan peninsula. Tho Ser
vians lost 2.500 killed and wounded
while- the Turks suffered C.000 cas
ualties. T',.e battlefioM is stil lcov
ered with corpses.
Owing to the broken natur" of the
country and the poor rallrr- com
munication the members of the Red
Cross society are encountering the
greatest difficulty In dealing with the
wounded
The fall of the Turkish stronghold
of Monastlr. which Is now being at
tacked by Servian and Greek columns,
Is expected hourly.
May Punlch Soldiers.
Constantinople. Nov. 9. It js re
ported that Nazim Pasha, the Turk
ish comm?nder In chief has decided
to send to their homes several thou
sand of his men who have shown
the white feather on the field of bat
tic but logic would suggest thnt they
deserved more severe punishment.
Reports of the excess of the flee
ing Turkish troops In the town of
SIHvrl, a seaport southwest or
Tchatalja line apparently arc au
thentic Manv of the inhabitants are said
to have been massacred and the town
almost completely burned. The pop
ulation of Slllvrf was mostly Greek.
Such stories as these do not tend
to aBsurc the minds of tho dwellers
of Constantinople where a panlky
feeling already pervadeB. Some sen
sational stories telegraphed abro?U
concerning the situation In Constan
tinople are not only exaggerated but
mischievous and they are likely not
only to react locally but cau6e trouble
among friends of tho colonies.
The authorities arc acting under
a plan arranged by the foreign office
and the foreign consulates also have
devised arrangements to protect
their subjects.
Two British steamers arc lying In
tho harbor ready to embark British
subjects.
The lack of news from the theatre
of war confirms the view already
telegraphed that the Bulgarians as
well as the Turks are much exhaust
ed from the fierce battles at Lule
Burgas.
That Bulgaria Is beginning to feol
the strain of the tremendous effort
to defeat the Turks Is believed In
this city.
The Turks are utilizing the breath
ing spell to prepare for tho final ef
fort to restrain the Bulgarians at
Tchatalja line. Largo numbors of
members of tho first reserves are ar
riving from the Anatolian province.
Several battcrlOB of artillery have
bcon sent to Tchatalja Including fifty
four guns confiscated from the Ser
vians nnd tried out the last few da'B
near Constantinople.
The government has difficult work
before it to convince the people of the
necessity for the submission of an
appeal for the good offices of the
powers.
Priest Calls Upon Faithful.
Constantinople, Nov, 9. The Shoik-Ul-Islam,
head of tho hierarchy In
Turkey, yesterday issued tho follow
ing appeal for a holy war In a mani
festo addressed to tho Ulenlas and
Hodkas;
"With a view to exciting and en
couraging tho soldiers of tho enemies
who sin round us, their priests, cross
In hand, are working In the ranks
of th army, it Is not fitting that
our Ulemas should neglect tne ac
complishment of a similar duly
"In order that the victory and glorj
promised by the almighty prophet
may be granted without delay to the
Ottoman it Is necessary that the ven
erable Ulemas organize a jihad. Such
a holy war has, moreover, become
an obligation if tho condition of the
Ottoman soldiers is to be strength
ened. "Ulemas who feel that they pos
sess the aptitude and strength to par
ticipate in this impirtant tabk are in
vited to present themselves Immedi
ately at the Sheik-Ul-Islam, which
will send thoso selected ro tho army."
There have been rumors for a day
or two that the ministry was unsta
ble owing to us request for mediation
by the European powers but the news
papers say this situation has given
way before the demand of the army

of war. saw Kiamil Pasha, the
grand vizier, today It is reported
that Shefket will be appointed Inspec
tor peneral of the army.
Villages in the Palass and Klrdjare
districts have been bi'rncd by Bul
garian troops and Daoucl and Topuklu

An official dispatch received from
the Vail of Saloniki, dated yester
day, says two squadrons of Bulgarian
cavalry Thursday attacked the troops
guarding the railway station at Orlu,
three hours' journey from Adrianople,
but the Bulgarians were repulsed.
Vienna, Nov. 9. The Bulgarians
are now attacking with all their
strength the remaining Turkish posi
tions about Tchatalja and the fall of
I these ltal Turkish defenses In front
of Constantinople Is only a matter of
hours, according to today's dispatch
es from the Reichsposl's correspond
ent. The Bulgarian third army has pen
etrated far Into the forest region
south of Derke3 lake, preparatory to
the advance on Constantinople, while
the first hrmiB.ngaged against the
mSiirTurkiBU' portion oaatof Tchat
alja. This position Is not yet com-1
plctelv pierced, but the end of the ,
Turkish resistance appears to be in '
siGht. I
The raw Turkish troops, large num-
bera of which were rushed from Con
stantinople to meet the enemy's ad
vance; .are fighting stronglj , but the
exhausted veterans of the earlier bat
tles are offering little serious re
sistance. Danger Threatens Europe.
London. Nov. 9. Though the end
of the Balkan was apparently Is in
sight, a greater danger than It threat
ened Europe today. The powers form
ing the triple alliance (Germany. Aus-tro-Hungary
and Italy) and those
composing tho triple entente (France.
Great Britain and Russia) are divid
ed Into two distinct camps as to tho
policy to be followed when peace be
tween Turkev and the Balkan allies
has been brought about.
Absolutely Ignoring the threat of
Austro-Hungary that she will not tol
erate tho Servian occupation of Al
bania or of a port on tho Adriatic sea,
King Peter's armies continue their ad
vance through tho country they wero
practically forbidden to enter.

comment which President-elect Wood
row Wilson made today on the array
of editorials, statements and declara
tions from prominent persons being
published in various newspapers ad
vocating or opposing an extra session
of congress to revise the tariff.
"Are vou going to take all these
clippings with you on your vacation0"
he was asked.
"Oh, no," replied the governor. "I've
read them already. The newspapers
certainly are helping me In my lis
tening policy."
Tho attention of the president-elect
was called to an argument in an edi
torial that inasmuch as he had not
received a majority of the popular
vote and that since both the Republi
can and Progressive parties favored a
policy of protection, therefore the
country had voted acalnst tarlftWevi
slou v
"That's queer rcasonihgv' remarked
Mr. Wilson. "They overlook the fact
that manv state legislatures went
Democratic, which means Democratic
senators, and likewise that there were
a great number of Democratic con
gressmen cl?ted."
Mr. Wilson planned lo attend the

suggestion of the sporting editor of a
local newspaper, a mob of Cuban
baseball fans went to the hotel of
Umpire O'Brien of the American

the chief of police was notified of the
situation and the fans were dispersed
by a company of armed rurnlcs.

delphia Athletics, who have won ev
ery game from the Havana team. Yes
terday the Cubans had a chance o
win. but were beaten by two close de
cisions by O'Brien This morning's
newspaper suggested lynching as the
proper penalty, and the fans decided
to act.
"I thought these Cubans were be
hind the times," said O'Brien, "but
thoy are the most up-to-date kind of
progressives. I don't mind pop bot
tles, but when It comos to lynching, I
am ready for a safe Job -such as sol

I didn't do as the executive board H

.incle, William Behm. at Bloomvllle, H
Ohio, June 22. 1902, and brought back IK
in a suit case three cases of dyna- Er

"In my room I propared- three B
bombs, each with 50 feet of fuse. I fH
then wout back to the building and ff9fl
waited in an alley to see if there fl
were any police about. Seeing none. J
I put one bomb 'n the fire box of -H
the boiler in the building under con- jM

Careful of Lives. M
"Joining the ends of the ftsc at H
i one point I lit them ail. They were H
lixed lo go off at about 1 a. m. it H
was then 10 p. m. I again looked H
about the alley. I noticed a kitchen Jm
door at the rear of a restaurant open- jM
ed on tho alley opposite whore the H
bombs were, and thinking some pco- JH
pie might run out at the first explo- M
sion and be Injured by the second or M
third, 1 shut the dcor and jammed a M
barrel of garbage against it. Then M
I went to my room and waited to hear jH
the noise. H
"it came about 1 o clock. Later i H
heard the newsboys calling 'Extra' ' M

explosives in my room. hat snoiuu ihm

go out with a package. That would : HH
excite suspicion. So I took what dyn- MS

and cutting It Into small pieces, flush- H

"Did you see Hockin the next day? i m
asked District Attorney Miller. l9a

"Yes. He paid me $20 for expenses 19
to Bloomvllle. He said I would he . H
fully compensated for my work as ll
the excutlvo board had set aside a fl
certal namount for each job, he said, . jl
and I must keep at It. Ho said I 'H
would receive $125 for a Job at first H
and I was to send a newspaper ac- M
count of each explosion so, he could M
get the money from the international H
