Almost uninterruptedly for four days
and three nights, the battle has pro
ceeded, the moon having afforded suf
ficient light at night for the armies
to continue their fierce onslaughts.
Turk and Bulgar are locked in a grap

derisive defeat of one or the other.
The dearth of news from the front
Wednesday and Thursday had given
rise to a feeling of despondency, and
•ional rumors of Turkish reverses
1 currency. Official reports today
proved these rumors to be unfounded.
Telegrams from various sources gave
favorable accounts of the military situ
ation. The Turkish forces were re
ported not merely to have been hold
ing their own, but to have effected an
important advance which was threat
ening the Bulgarian rear. If this Turk
ish column joins hands with the gar
rison at Adrianople the Bulgarian army
will be practically surrounded and its
It is alleged that, realising the
gravity of the situation, the Bulgarian
commanders have withdrawn the army
at Kustenje and their forces before
Adrianople and that these troops are
being hurried to support the center of
the main Bulgarian army.
THOUSANDS OF WOI'XDED
Some idea of the desperate nature of
the fighting is gathered from the fact
that more than 5.000 wounded soldiers
arrived in Constantinople tonight from
the front. Fortunately, a majority of
the bullets drilled clean holes in their
victims, and these will heal rapidly.
Indignation and surprise were ex
pressed here today over the fact that
a Greek torpedo boat had succeeded in
entering the gulf of Saloniki last night,
despite the mines and heavily armed
forts, and had blown up the Turkish
battleship Feth-I-Bulend. The com
mandant of the forte will be called to
account for permitting this incursion.
The movement of troope to the front
continues. A battalion of Kurdish and
Albanian volunteers marched through
the streets of Pera this evening on the
way to the railway station. The men
were cheered and appeared to be In
the best of spirits.
STEPS TO CHECK MASSACRES
Aβ a result of a meeting Thursday
of the heads of the diplomatic missions
to consider the situation in Constanti
nople the marquis de Pallaviona, the
Austro-Hungarian ambassador and
dean of the diplomatic corps, today
visited Xoradunghian Effendl, the
foreign minister, and called his atten
tion to the necessity of adequate meas
ures to maintain order Jn the city.
Among the measures the government
has in mind in event of further Turk
!*h reverses is the dispatch of an army
division to stop all fugitive soldiers
between Tehatalja and Constantinople.

keenest interest is being taken in the

GREEKS MASSACRED BY TURKS
ATHENS, Nov. I.— Accounts arc published here of a massacre
of Creeks by Turks in the town of Servia, just across the Creek frontier
in Turkey. The reports say the fleeing Turkish troops, in passing through
the village of Metassa ordered the Creek inhabitants to follow them on
peril of being massacred by Turkish cavalry.
On refusing 52 of the Creeps were made prisoners and taken to
Servia and lodged in the jail, in which were 73 others of their compa
triots. Later the governor of the prison told the Creeks they were free
and ordered them to leave the building. On emerging, the Creeks were
surrounded by soldiers and an'armed mob who began a massacre.
Only four of the Greeks escaped with their lives. When the mas
sacre was over a soldier cut off the noses and hands of the dead men.
Dispatches from Aria say that Turkish atrocities in Albania are con

r WAYOF BUTTING IN
PARIS, Now I.—A policy of territo
rial disinterestedness in the Balkan*?,
if France, Russia and Great Brit tain
have their way, will replace the now
discredited shibboleth of "status quo"
as a basis of collective action by the
great powers should the time arrive for
a redistribution of sovereignty in Tur
key through the victory of the allied
Balkan states over the Turks.
This self-sacrificing ordinance would
apply only to the nations constituting
the concert of Europe, as there Is no
longer any suggestion of opposing the J
aspirations of the Balkans for national
It is recognized that the Balkan
states must have their respective slices
of territory should the Turks finally
acknowledge defeat, but it is feared
that any attempt by outsiders to put
their hands in the grabbag would lead
to the European conflagration.
A full agreement as to the new for
mula which is to cement the accord of
the powers has not been reached.
France, Russia and Great Britain are
ready to subscribe to it, but Germany,
Austria and Italy hesitate.
M. Poincare, the French premier who
is working untiringly for peace, does
not despair of rallying all the powers
under the banner of "disinterestedness"
which he believes is the surest means
of avoiding a general war.
Balkans Will Play Lone Hand
BELGRADE, Nov. I.—The Stampa
says it learns that the porte has sent
two delegates to Vienna to request
Austria's friendly Intervention to re

SOFIA, Nov. I.—The Bulgarian troops
today occupied the Turkish town of
Demotica, thus completely cutting off
the possibility of cwnmnnieation be
tween Adrianople and Constantinople,
Details thus far of the rout of the
Immense Turkish army by the Bul
garians show that the Bulgarian force 3
were numerically far inferior.
The Turkish army is reported to have
aggregated 200,000 men. It included
the garrison that had retreated from
the fortress of Kirk-Kilise, as well as
the main body of Turkish troops that
had advanced from Constantinople. It
comprised practically the whole of the
Turkish troopr remaining in Europe
apart from the garrisons of Adrianople.
Saloniki. Monastir, Janina, Scutari and
a few other towns.
This great army was under the per
sonal command of Nazim Pasha, min
ister of war and commander in chief,
who was assisted by some of the
ablest Turkish generals.
The fight opened with the discovery
by the Turks of a number of Bulgarian
cavalry scouts. The Turks brought in
their outposts and those were followed
by lines of Bulgarian skirmishers, who
were succeeded by the main Bulgarian
army in fighting formation.
The battlr, which was destined to last
several days and result in the defeat
of the Turks, was soon in progress all
along the line. *
The Bulgarian troops frequently de
livered flerre attacks, sometimes fit
one. point, sometimes at another, along
the Turkish lino, extending from Lule
i Burgas to Sarai.
The Turkish troops offered desperate
resistam-e, but were unable to with
stand the onslaught of the Bulgarians,
and finally they fled in profit disorder

MILITARY TRAIN CAPTIHKD
The capture of a third Turkish mili
tary train near LiUle-Burgas before the

An extraordinary Buries of dispatches
from Naxim Pasha, the Turkish com

hissar and was still holding its own
against the Bulgarian advance, was
published in Constantinople today.
In the absence of independent testi

to the accuracy of these telegrams are
They may be belated dispatches re
ferring to early stages of the struggle
or may be mere representations for
the benefit of the Turkish population.
On the other hand, they may mean
that the Bulgarian victory was not so
complete as was represented by Sofia,
or possibly the nine divisions of Turk
ish reserves the reports of yesterday
said had been ordered to the Turkish
center may be holding back the Bul
Tt'RKS IN DIFFICULT POSITION
Except for the general statement that
the Turks were retreating on Chat
aldja, fighting rear guard actions, no
details of the battle were forthcoming
from Sofia today; but the arrival of
6,000 wounded men in Constantinople
tells its own story of the sanguinary
character of the encounter. Despite
optimistic reports from the Turkish
side, it is not believed here that the
Turkish army can retrieve itself.
All indications from Sofia are that
the allies are determined to dictate
terms of peace from Constantinople.
That is the construction placed on an
editorial from the official newspaper
Mir, published at Sofia, and in other
official intimations that the Bulgarians
apparently expect to be in Constanti
nople within a fortnight.

Their officers were powerless against

What a Residence Park in a Metropolis Means
A N EXCLUSIVE residence park in a metropolis is not a suburb. It is
**• not a village removed from the city and consisting of a variegated col
lection of houses, cottages, bungalows, stores and saloons. In the great
Eastern cities residence parks are laid aside in the most desirable section
of the metropolitan area. Within their boundaries no shops are permitted.
The houses measure up to a certain artistic standard. The streets smd boule
vards are wide, usually lined with trees and flowers. Although part of the
city, they arc removed from the bustle and noise. They have an air of se
clusion, an atmosphere of refinement and substantial comfort.
Because of their restricted area, the property in such parks is extremely
valuable, and continually increases in value.

University of California Men
Are Defeated in Twentieth
BERKELEY, Nov. I.—Honors in the
twentieth annual intercollegiate debate
between Stanford and the University of
California, held here tonight in Har
mon gymnasium, were awarded to the
Stanford team after one of the most
interesting: forensic battles in the his
tory of the annual contest.
The question debated was: '"Resolved,
I that California should establish a series
of endowed, nonpartisan. general news
papers." The affirmative side was up
held by the California team, composed
of A. W. Drury, V. F. Collins and L. E.
Goodman, while the Stanford team,
composed of P. D. Nowell. H. F. Coyle
and A. H. Morocco, took the negative.
Professor Charles M. Gayley presided.
The judges were J. TV. Lillenthal. Judge
Frank J. Murasky and O. K. Cuehlng.
The University of California speakers
favored the endowment by the state of
four newspapers, to be published daily
in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Sacra
mento and Fresno. They maintained
that an endowed press would elevate
the ethics of the newspaper business
and prevent its control by selfish pri
vate interests. Educational reasons
were cited also, one of the debaters
declaring an endowed press would be a
university for the people.
Stanford attacked the practicability
of the scheme, and on this point won
the decision. The winning speakers es
timated the cost at $2,000,000 a year
and declared that such a burden was
not justified by the results that could
