that the army was totally dlsorgan

Wts ObBervors who have been to the

&t task of tremendous difficulty. The
iOM da"s tne Bulgarian tcpops were conv
tff Polled to use for tho bringing up of
kjEm guns and ammunition and relnforco-
ments were utilized by the Turks to
m entrench themselves and place their
guns in position, giving them a dis
K tlnct advantage over the attackers.

While fighting is going on at Tcha

Horrible Agonies Seen
By Reporter Among
Turkish Troops
Berlin, Nov. IS. The liveliest imag
ination would be unable to depict tho
frightful conditions existing among
the Turkish troops at Hademkeul, on
the lines of Tchatplja. according to
Minister Eugene Zwenger, the wni
correspondent of the Tageblatt He
says thousands of tho dead and dying
lay along the road. Men with stretch
ers aro engaged day and night gather
ing the dead for burial and the wound
ed for transport to the hospital.
Distorted Faces Everywhere.
He continues: "Wherever I looked
I saw the dlstortej faces and stiff
oned hands of the wounded stretched
forward appealing for help. The near
er I approached tho railroad station
the sadder grew tho picture.
' The railroad station Itself Is Just
a field full of dead. I saw In one car
ton men, five of whom were living
and the other five dead, their facs
still expressing the horrible agoni
they had passed through. I walkc
among piles of corpses and amons
masses of groaning, sick men who
would soon find relief In death.
5,000 Cholera Deaths Dally.
"A train about to start was over
crowded with cholera-stricken men
Many of those in the care died soon
after thev got on board,
i '"According to authentic information
the deaths from cholera number 5.
000 dally along the line of Tchatalja "
Sick and Dead Lie In Streets.
Another dispatcli to tho Tageblatt
from Kustendje, Rumania, to which
place It had been sent by wireless,
says a thousand cholera cases and 200
deaths occur dally among the Turkish
soldiers at San Stefano, where the
sick and dead lie indiscriminately In
the slreets.
Allies Carry the Heights.
Sofia, Nov. IS. A fierce right for
Monastir continues between the Bul
garian and Greek allies and tho Turk
ish garrison. The defenders of the
city, knowing that their Uuc3 of com
munication with Ochrida, on which
they would naturally retreat in case
of defeat, have been cut, are lighting
desperately.
The Iobsos of tho Servians have
been heavy. During the first duy's
battle 2G0 were killed or wounded.
The country around the fortress is
a raoras3 and the attackers aro Iro
quently up to their kuees.
Tho allies, however, made two night
attacks, carrying tho heights of Ob
lavoka and Kochista, 3.G00 feet high.
Defeat Greek Troops,
London, N'ov. IS Djadld Pasha,
commander of the Turkish troops at
Monastir, Inflicted a defeat on the
Greek troops who were advancing
through tho defile, KJIldir, twenty
miles from Monastir, according to a
special dispatch received here.
King Receives American Subjects.
Ricka, Montenegro, Nov. IS. A
large number of Montenegrins who
have returned from America to fight
for their country were received by
King Nicholas yesterday.
Enormous Sacrifices Made.
London. Nov. 1. The siege of
Adrianople has cost Bulgaria enor
mous sacrifices, according to a special
dispJtch from Sofia. It appears that
the fighting which followed last Snn
dal's sortie by tho Turkish garrison,
was of a most sanguinary charncter.
Several thousand soldiers of the allies
were killed or wounded,
Paris, Nov, IS. The complete de
moralization of the Turkish army is
drawn by tho war correspondent of the
Matin at Tademkoul. the Turkish
headquarters of the lines of Tchatalja.
He says;
Guns RusNEaten.
"Colonel Lehman a German offi
cer, who has Just taken over a com
mand in tho Turkish artillery, declares
he did not find a single gun in place
The Turks have plenty of guns and
ammunition They have German can
non and also French cannon taken
from the Servians before hostilities
began. Three French guns were seen
lying In the mud at Hademkeul, rust
eaten and useless.
Only 150,000 Men.
"The total of the Turkish forces is
estimated at 150.000 men. but there is
a complete hick of energy among the
officers and men and organization of
any sort is lacking. The Turkish com
mandant does not loavo his parlor car
where he will not receive anybody.
"The starf officers of the Turkish
army themselves can be seen out af
ter 10 o'clock In tho morning. Il
things go as they are today the Bul
garians will not find any Turkish
troops to fight they will all be dead
from cholera and typhoid."
SULTAN SENDS
GREETING TO ARMY
Constantinople. Nov S. (fl:45 a
m.) No firing was audible this morn
ing from the direction of the Tchatal

ex or, that tho great battle which be
gan yesterday continues, but that the

roar of the caiinnn beln? heard here.

marines were landed from the war
ships of the International squadron
early today. They occupied the for
eign embassies, consulates and post

Los Angeles. Nov IS. While the

the district court ot appcai, indicated
ho would throw tno matter out of

in the canvassing of the ballots were
cited. The court ruled that il had
Jurisdiction In election fraud cases, a
point contested by the supervisors, but
postponed the case until Wednesday,
Instructing tho Democrats to bring in
an amended petition tomorrow, setting
forth specific cases of the fraud
charged,
Los Angeles, Nov. IS. The first le
gal battle over the presidential vote
in Los Angeles county, upon the out
come or which hinges the political
complexion of California's delegation
to the electoral college, came up to
day in the district court of appeals.
The lssno was the vote In 35 pre
cincts ,ln which Roosevelt electors
received a plurality of more than 1,
000 votes, which the Democrats de
clare should be thrown out because
the board of supervisors opened tho
scaled envelopes containing tho tally
sheets of the returns and corrected
them prior to the day set by law
for the official canvass.
Tho chief objection by the Progres
sives and the board of supervisors to
the granting of tho writ of mandamus
asked by tho Democrats, It was un
derstood, would bo tho lack of Juris
diction by the court, as no city or
county officials were involved. Should
the court hold that It had no jurisdic
tion in the matter, it may be that
no further steps will be taken by the
contestants, because the only known
recourse remaining would be an ap
peal to congress.
The supervisors do not deny that
the envelopes were opened and that
corrections wore made, but they as
sc'rt that the law was not violated anil
that the returns proper were not tam
pered with.
