danger to foreigners is real. If the

the lives and property of thousands

The presence of foreign warships is
of the greatest importance and would

use the utmost vigilance and to repress
disorders rigorously.
A brigade of infantry Las been dis
pitched to Tchatalja with orders to pre
vent all fugitives, principally soldiers,
from going to Constantinople, but it is
questionable whether the brigade under
certain conditions would carry out such
an order.
Thursday the diplomatic representa
tives of all the nations held a confer

on Is not known, but the Austrian am
bassador visited the foreign minister
and called attention to the disquietude
on the part of foreign residents respect

NV7.IM IMSHA'S BELATED PLANS
Defini;** news of the result of the
great battle is expected hourly. Ac
cording to ix government official, Nazim
Pasha's plan is to surround the Bul
garians while Mahmoud Muhktar Pasha
is working to the northwest of Visa.
A column of 30,000 will then be ordered

The Turkish army at Dedeahatch is
t« henp in thp western flank of the
Bulgarians, while the main Turkish
force, occupying the line between
Tchorlu and Sereai, is expected to de
liver the decisive blow against the
enemy.
The defenses in Tchatalja have been
repaired and strengthened and during
the last few days many guns have
been mounted there, but if the Turks
are beaten in Tchorlu and Teher
an effective resistance along
the last line of forts is improbable.
TURKISH ARMY
1 IS RETREATING
IXDNDON, Nov. 3.—The Turkish army
Is in full retreat on Constantinople, and
the Turkish government has asked the
powers to intervene.
An official bulletin was issued by the
government in Constantinople tonight
admitting defeat at the hands of the
Bulgarians in the great battle on the
Thracian plains.
Application was made to the embas
i Constantinople tonight for medi
t>y the powers and to end the hos
tilities and arrange a peace agreement.
WARSHIPS TO RKSCI X
The ambassadors prior to this had
askM the porte to grant permission to
"f the great powers to send one
warship through the Dardanelles, and
■ equest had been «omplied with.
The only guarantee of safety for the
native Christians, and perhaps foreign
ers, in Constantinople is to be found in
the presence of the warships of the
Krpat powers in the harbor of the Turk
ish capital.
It is the general belief that Bulgaria
will refuse to listen to anything In the
way of intervention until the Bulgarian
army in at the gates of Constantinople,
and will insist that Turkey make an ap
peal direct to the allies without inter
ference from the powers.
IIIIIHBI CA\ NOT AGREE
The powers have not been able to
ngree upon the French premier's for
mula of "territorial disinterestedness,"
which is not acceptable to Austria or
Germany. The powers are taking steps
for the protection of Christians and
tJieir own political interests in Turkey.
One warship, in addition to the, vesseis
already dispatched to Turkish port*,
will be sent throug-h the Dardanelles
by each of the powers.
Reyond the statement that the Turk
ish army is retreating to the last line
of fortifications outside Constantinople,
lit tie news was received from the seat
of war tonight. Fighting was reported
along the line from Tchorlu to Seari.
which was the outcome doubtlese of
the effort of the defeated Turks to re
tire within the Tthalal.ia linea, which
the Bulgarians are doing their utmost
prevent.
BKSIEGERS TIGHTEN' GRIP
The besieging forces are tightening
their grip around Adrianople and the
bombardment is becoming more vigor

concluding their occupation of Turkish
territory. The Greeks have taken Nico

SOFIA, Bulgaria, Nov. 3.—Fighting

Tchorlu to Saral, where the remnant of
the defeated Turkish army is making a
stand.
Reports continue to circulate that
Adrianople has fallen, but there Iβ no
confirmation. This Turkish stronghold
has been subjected to extremely severe
bombardment and the latest advices are
that Bulgarian shells still are being
dropped Into the fortress.
There is much elation here over the

WAR SCRIBES
HANDICAPPED
[Special Cable to The Call]
CONSTANTINOPLE. Nov. 3.— War
correspondents out of a Job present one
of the minor tragedies of the Turkish-
Balkan struggle. Dozens of eager and
experienced writers rushed to Constan
tinople at the end of September, bought
horses, field clothing, quantities of
tinned food, revolvers and ammunition,
engaged servants and couriers and then
went to the ministry of war and asked
to be allowed to accompany the troops
streaming to the front.
"Walt a while," said the officer in
charge.
Next day the correspondents renewed
their request and elicited the same re
ply. A week passed and the journal
ists were still haunting the war office
and learning nothing. Some hired
motor cars and tried to escape inland,
but were turned back with the remark
that private travelers in the interior
were exposed to "possible unpleasant
ness." All wrote voluminously every
day and worked diligently, but the
censor killed nine-tenths of what they
had written and mangled the rest hope
lessly. Practically nothing was al
lowed to pass except some descriptions
of the glories of the golden horn.
One dax everybody was electrified by
an official note saying that the cor
respondents might go to the front.
There was a frantic rush by the motley,
polyglot crowd. When the correspond
ents' horses and their armies of serv
ants and couriers assembled the mili
tary man in charge exclaimed:
"Great Allah: Do you expect the
war office to form a second, transport
department for the newspaper men?"
So the horses had to be given up and
with them most of the hangers-on.
One writer pleaded to have his col
lapsible hip bath included with his
impedimenta, but it was firmly ruled
out. Now the correspondents are im
mured in scattering lx>ca.l camps and
are poorly sheltered, badly fed and
Ignorant of the progress of the war?

four acts, by the boys' division of the
Young Men's Christian association, is

The play met with marked success
last year and Is betag presented in
nearly every state in the union. It is
a vivid portrayal of boy life, and tells
primarily of the vivacious practices of
a San Francisco boys' gang. There are
plenty of amusing as well as dramatics
situations, which make it an ideal en
tertainment for old and young alike.
The 30 boys in the cast are being
trained by Raymond O. Hanson, the
author of the play.
Special scenery has been provided

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, 4, 1912.
OLYMPIC TROPHY
DESIGN IS READY
1915 Exposition Board to Re
ceive Model From J. Ham
mer of Stockholm
Designs for the golden plaque pre
sented by the Panama-Pacific exposi
tion to the international committee in
charge of the Olympic games as a
trophy for the winner of the first mod
ern Pentathlon will be submitted today
to the exposition authorities by John
Hammer of Stockholm, managing di
rector of the General Export associa
tion of Sweden, who has come to San
Francisco partly on business connected
with the fair.
The designing of the beautiful chal
lenge trophy was entrusted to Eric
I.indbfrrg, a famous Swedish artist and
RMMtaJiSt. The design submitted shows
the Olympian goddess crowning the
victor with a laurel wreath. At the
base are five wreaths, signifying that
the winner proved his prowess by de
feating his competitors in the five
events that compose the Pentathlon.
The trophy was offered to the inter
national committee on behalf of the
exposition by Dr. Frederick J. V. Skiff,
who was in Sweden early last summer,
and formally accepted by ' Baron de
Coubertin, the president of the games.
It occasioned a great deal of favorable
comment in the newspapers of the con
tinent and attracted marked attention
to the 1915 exposition.
"This beautiful plaque, which was
generously offered by your exposition,"
eaid Hammer, "will be contested for
again In Berlin In 1916. To my mind
the Pentathlon is the greatest event in
the Olympian games."
There Is every probability that try
outs for the second Pentathlon will be
held during the universal exposition
in San Francisco in 1915. Such try
outs would bring to this country some
of the foremost athletes of the world
and would be an interesting addition
to the national championship athletic
contests.
Hammer ' is being entertained by
Williatn T. Sesnon, a member of the
commission extraordinary to Europe;
Director in Chief Skiff and the exposi
tion directors. He will be escorted
over the site today.

Unsheltered from the lowering skies

j stood at the foot of the classic prayer
book cross in Golden Gate park yes
terday afternoon and celebrated with
fitting ceremony the seventh annual
memorial service of the establishment
of the House of Church Women in the
diocese of California.
On the spot made holy by the conse
cration as a memorial to the first Chris

the Pacific coast, the handful of wor
shipers who braved the unfriendly skies
that the service might be held dis
pensed with vestments and choir and
carried through with simple grace the
ordered program of the day.
BISHOP XICHOLS OFFICIATES
Since the establishment by Bishop
William Ford Nichols, head of the Cali
fornia diocese of the House of Church
Women, the beautiful prayer book cross
has been each year the scene of an im
pressive service of praise and thanks
giving. Bishop Nichols wae present
yesterday and addressed the little
group on the significance of the mem
orial cross that towered above them.
"Though there is only a moiety of
the usual attendance here today," he
said, in opening, "and we appear with
out vestments or choir, we are still
able to observe this day as of yore. In
place of vestments the clerk of the
weather has left us these fleecy clouds,
and if not the choir, then we have the
spontaneous, impromptu singing that
comes from hearts filled with praise
and thanksgiving.
drake: xot a pirate
"There are many new thoughts called
fortii each year by. this service held
here In the shadow .of this historical
I cross. It is interesting to know that
very recently new facts concerning the
life and activities of Sir Francis Drake,
whose chaplain, Francis Fletcher, held
the first Episcopalian service in Amer
ica, have been brought to light by a
California woman who has made a
study of the records in the archives of
old Mexico.
"Sir Francis Drake was not a pirate,
as most of the world holds him to
day, but was a pioneer in coloniza
tion, holding letters from his queen
permitting him to sail the high seas
in search of lands for the crown. These
facts are to be published soon in a
book by Mrs. Nuttall and this soberer
estimate of the explorer will take the
place of those harsh criticisms written
by the prejudiced historians of his
time.
"It is a wonderful blessing to have
this cross set high on an eminence
that can plainly be seen at sea. Wβ
thank God that travelers approaching
San Francisco from the ocean may be
hold this standard of strength, this
sign of trust and confidence, instead of
a battery of cannon. It is the most
conspicuous object in view from the
decks of the approaching ships—this
solid cross, the symbol from Constan
tine's time of that victory which over
comes the world."
SOCIAL BETTERMENT FRUED
Dean J. Wilmer Gresham of Grace
Pro Cathedral made an address on the
significance of the memorial service
from the double standpoint of church
people and the public at large. Clos
ing his talk, he dwelt on the need for
social betterment in Ran Francisco,
with the suggestion that the church
undertake the tack of eliminating the
Barbary coast from the city's map.
Among those attending the eer v ' f '<*
were Rev. Harvey S. Hanson, rector
of All Saints' church; Mrs. G. H. Kel

MRS. LESH SAYS
CONFESSION HAS
MADE HER HAPPY
Husband of Woman Who Admits
Double Murder Holds She
Is Insane
LOS ANGELES. Nov. 3.—Declaring
that she is happier than she has been
in years because of her confession yes
terday to having killed two women in
Missouri, Mrs. Pansy Hastings Lesh is
in the city jail here awaiting- the arri
val of Sheriff M. T. Henderson of Pet
tus county, Mo., who telegraphed Chief
Sebastian today to hold the woman
until his arrival from Sedalia.
The case Is one of the strangest in
the history of local police annals.
There is little doubt of the young
woman's sanity, say the police, al
though her husband, who called at the
jail today, said there was nothing to
her story and that she was temporarily
insane.
TOLD HER HUSBAND
"He knows I'm not insane," said Mrs.
jLesh, after her husband's visit, "be
cause I told him all about it before I
married him five years ago. He and
Father Brooks, whom I confessed to in
St. Louie long ago when I became a
Catholic, were the only ones who ever
knew, and I think Father Brooks is
dead now."
The young woman told her story to
day with the utmost frankness. She
apparently was in a happy mood and
showed remorse and emotion only when
relating the story of how she gave
poison to Mrs. Eliza Coe in Sedalia a
year after she had caused the death of
Mrs. E. M. Quaintanoe in Greenridge,
12 miles from Sedalia.
GAVE RAT POISON
"Mrs. Coe was good to me, though
she scolded me sometimes," said Mrs.
Leah. 'She had taken a baby to the
poor farm through the rain and caught
a bad cold. I nursed her when she was
ill and gave her two capsules about
half full of rough on rats. got
worse and was so good and kind to me
then that I was sorry I poisoned her,
but I was afraid to tell the doctor.
When she died the doctor said it was
dee to ptomaine poisoning.
"I never really felt badly about
causing Mrs. Quaintance's death, ex
cept that I knew It was wrong. But
she and her husband were riot kind to
me. I was only 15 years old when 1
was Bent to them by the orphanage.
Mr. Quaintance, who was about 60
years old, mistreated me, and I had
trouble with his wife because he en
couraged me to be disrespectful to
her. We quarreled one day and he
took her part, and may be that is why
I gave her poison.
ftUAIN'TANCE COMMITS SIICIDE
"After hia wife's death Mr. Quain
tance wanted me to stay with him, but
I refused, and he got me a place with
<otne people near Greenridge. I joined
the Methodist church there, and one
night while I was walklnk home with
my Sunday school teacher I told her
about an attack on me by a young man
fn that town. She took me to the jus
tice of the peace. I think it was, and
after a lot of questioning by him I
admitted my relations with Quain
tance. The old man came to town that
day and I guess heard about it, be
cause he went right out to his farm
and shot himself.
"I don't know why I killed either of
gha women. That's a question 1 havf
asked myself several times. All I
know is that T wanted to get It off
my mind. 1 used to think about it
when I was alone or got despondent.
If they put me in the penitentiary I
will serve my sentence gladly, because
then I can start in over again and
with a clean slate."
HEREDITY' IS HO EXCISE
When It was suggested to Mre. Lesh
that heredity might have had some
thing to do with her crime, she said:
"Possibly it might. My mother did
not lead a good life and my father
roamed about a great deal and changed
his name often. But that's no excuse
for me. I knew right from wrong. I
have a bad temper, but I have never
I wanted to kiM any one since, even
when In a rage. T don't think now
that I really wanted to kill Mrs. Quain
tance and Mrs. Coe."
After leaving Sedalia in 1905 the
young woman eaid she was placed in
the House of the Good Shepherd in St.
Louis, where she remained a year and
then ran away.
"That was the happiest year of 'my
life, too," she added, "now that I look
back at it."
Shortly afterward she married Lesh.
