[Special Dispalch to The Call]
CHICAGO, Nov. 4.—Another one of
those tragedies which walk across the
life of American cities was enacted
here when Bernardo Gigliotti was gar
roted on the eve n( the arrival of his
wife and children from '•home."
Gigliotti. a Caiabrian, evidently had
come to this country hunted. His fears
end tremblings were told by his land
lady, Mrs. Maria Cola.
"When he came from Italy," she said,
■■\.p was nappy. Vie expected soon to
send for his wife and children. He
worked hard. One day he came home
and found a letter from the old country.
"When he saw the postmark he grew
white as a ghost. He did not go out
of the house unless lie had to."
The fears of Gigliotti were not chi
meras. Today his body was found in
the works of the Baldwin locomotive
concern. He had been seized from be
hind and strangled to death.

BUTCHER MEETS
TRAGIC DEATH
San Francisco Man May Have
Shot Himself, but Mystery
Shrouds Case
Was Marius Aubry, a young butcher
of 1431 Laguna street, "mistaken for a
quail" in the Pan Bruno hills? Was he
murdered, or did he accidentally shoot
himself in the back of the head from
such an angle that the shot lodged In
his jaw?
I
Was lie engaged to a girl named
Valeric, and did such engagement, if it
existed, have * tragic bearing on the.
death of the butcher?
Where was Alfred Del vex of 1605 l.a- j
guna street, at which address Aubry j
lodged, when the fatal shot was fired?!
Delvex also is a butcher.
Body Found in Ravine
Aubry's body was found yesterday j
afternoon !n a ravine west of San Bruno ;
and about a half mile from the Jersey !
dairy farm. The discovery was made I
by Delvex. who on the previous day.
Sunday, had gone hunting with his fel- j
low lodger and had lost him, he said, i
1n the San Bruno hills. The two men
had gone to San Bruno to hunt quail,
j had separated to beat up different can- j
yons. and when it came time for them j
to meet and return to the city Aubry ■
did not appear at, the rendezvous agreed j
upon. It was near dark and raining, and i
Delvex came to the city p.lone. Tester- !
day he returned to the hunting ground, j
went in the direction his companion had '
taken, he said, and there found the !
body.
Wound Purzles Officers

authorities In that the wound which |
caused death is located directly in the

ekull. and the shot lodged in the jaw.
Th« improbability of a man shooting
himself, either by accident or design
in such a position and at such an angle
has aroused , the Pan Mateo county offi
cials an<l a thorough investigation -will

and Delver and inquiry will be made
to locate other hunters who might have
been in the San Bruno hills on Sunday,
Delvex has not been held by the
police. He returned to San Francisco
from San Bruno last evening.

LONDON, Nov. 4.—The prospect
that a considerable portion of
the defeated Turkish army wiil
be able to reform behind the
lines of Tchatalja, the last fortifica
tions before Constantinople, is not
altogether excluded, but whether the
Turks will be able to maintain there
any serious resistance to the Bul
garian advance is doubtful.
In the struggle with the allies the
Turks lost more than half their artil
lery. Tn fact, the Servians alone claim
to have captured no less than 300
guns. This certainly will militate
against any prolonged stand at Tchat
alja.
In a circular note to Turkish am

ment maintains that although embar

that when the allies had completed their
mobilisation Turkey had barely begun
