BATTLE OPENS AT TCHATALJA FORTS
Water Famine Threatens Capital of Mussulmans
British Warship on Scene; Troops
Continue to the Front As
Fighting Is Renewed
Prince Ghirka to Be Proclaimed King of Alba
nia; New Appeal to Powers to Prevent
Foe From Entering Capital
LONDON, Ifo*. s.—Tt was officially
announced in Constantinople today that
fighting has begun between the Bul
garians and Turks at the Tchatalja
forts, according to a special dispatch
from that city. The result of the fight
ing is not stated.
The water supply of Constantinople
■was cut off today by a large Bulgarian
force which occupied Derkas, at the
end of the line of Tchatalja, from which
4 I °snt the aqueduct supplying the Turk
ish capital starts, according to a news
aganpy dispatch from Sofia.
Kx<ept for a few straggling detach
ments of men in fighting formation and
fleeing Turkish troops, the country be
yond the Tchatalja forts, forming the
last Turkish defenses before Constanti
nople, is now clear of Ottoman troops.
The investing Bulgarian force on the
plains below the Tchatalja hills pre
sents a front extending about 30 miles
across the peninsula.
The great powers of Europe are
aligning themselves on either side of
a sharp line regarding the future of
the Balkan states. Public opinion in
England. France and Russia is that
the allies should have the territory in
which they have conquered and Russia
particularly has warned Turkey that
conditions could only become worse
should further disaster 00-ur at Tcha
talja.
OPPOSITION FROM Al STRIA
On the other side are Austria Hu
ngary, Germany and Italy. Austria-Hun
gary, which after all is the most di
rectly interested, being the nearest
neighbor to the Balkan states, will
not, it is believed, sit quietly by and
see the Balkan league establish itself
across her path to the Aegean sea. in
which direction her trade is expanding.
while at the same time the Servians
spread to the Adriatic sea. The
Austrian government points out that
the Albanians are as much a nation
as any of the allies and that Albania
should be reserved for the Albanians.
The first sign of dissension among
the Balkan allies themselves comes
from a dispatch from Belgrade, in which
it is &aid the Servians are beginning to
declare that the "autonomous Albania,"
which was agreed upon before the war
started, has now faded away. In the
dispatch the Mussulman Albanians who
r against the Servian troops are
blamed for the change in the Servian
attitu-ie. • .
Instead of the 2f> mile stretch of the
Adriatic coast hitherto claimed by Ser
. the same dispatch says that Servia
* >w wants 60 miles, and that in return
Montenegro is to get more than her
allotment of the district of Novi-Pa
zarus.
The correspondent adds significantly:
"The emperor of Russia taken
as arbitrator between Servia and Bul
graria in regard to these conquests.
which were not foreseen in the original
agreement between the allies."
11l IOARIWS RESIMK ADVANCE
In the meantime the Bulgarian troops
in the vicinity of Tchorlu are preparing
to resume their advance on Tchatalja.
After four nights and four days of con
tinuous fighting around Lule-Burgas.
the Bulgarian soldiers were given two
days' rest. This period expired today
and the troops by this time probably
Mijain on the move.
The Bulgarian army near Tchorlu is
being reinforced with troops taken from
the investing forces around Adrianople,
wfeOM places in turn have been taken
by Servians.
A second Bulgarian army commanded
by General Kutincheff is marching
along the coast of the sea of Marmora
to effect a junction with the Bulgarian
army commanded by General Dimitrieff
at Tchatalja.
To get on the move quickly the Bul
garian troops must have worked hard.
they have thousands of wounded
■•: ks and Bulgarians to care for and
have had to burn or bury a large num
ber of killed. It is officially stated In
a dispatch from Belgrade that the
Servians, having annihilated the Turk
ish army in Macedonia, have been or
dered to assist the Bulgarians, Greeks
and Montenegrins. A large force of
Servians has already passed through
*ia on the way to Adrianople. the
bombardment of which continues with
out abatement.
Nothing was heard today of the posi
tion of the Turks at Tchatalja, but it
i? believed that part of the army man
age<j to get behind the positions there.
The sultan's soldiers are in bad con
dition. Besides the host of wounded
thousands of men dropped out of the
, ranks exhausted from want of food and
f most of these threw away their rifles.
However, they have had two days in
which to rally and re-form, while the
Bulgarians* advance probably will be
slower than heretofore, as the roads
are in a terrible condition from the
heavy rains. This will cause difficulty
in bringing up artillery.
It k< reported today that the Greeks
made a premature attack on Saloniki
and were repulsed, but this lacks con
firmation. A combined attack on that
t ity by Greeks, Servians and Bulgari
i tec] shortly.
Another report, which is both un
likely and unconfirmed, comes from
Vienna to the effect that Great Britain
. lias warned Bulgaria against entering
Constantinople. Great Britain's chief
interest in that city at present is to
prevent massacres.
It is said Turkey probably will ask
the powers each to send a warship to
nstantinople.
Dispatches from the Turkish capital
the ottoman press is taking the
nation calmly with the exception of
the Hilaliosran, edited by the notorious
»ik Shawish, which prints a violent
~ tint the powers. The news
paper is being eagerly bought by the
public.
The Bulgarians have occupied the
territory between Tchorlu and Tcha
talja, completely surrounding the Turk
ish forces in that district.
Another Bulgarian column formed of
detachments from Drama and other
captured towns is marching on the
seaport of Kavala on the Aegean sea.
ALLIED FORCE ON MARCH
An allied force consisting of Bul
garians from Kuruk and Greeks from
Yenidje-Vardar is proceeding by forced
marches to Saloniki.
The British attitude in the Balkan
t situation was explained in the house of
1 commons by Sir Edward Grey, the for
eign secretary, who was loudly cheered
when, in reply to a question, lie said:
"No one view of the result of the
war up to date will be disposed to dis
eute the rights of the Balkan states
to formulate the terms on which they
are prepared to conclude peace.
"Do not think that the great powers i
are more slow than other people to art- j
just their known views to the march }
of events. The powers are exchang- !
ing views in regard to the position in
the near east, but it must be a very <
delicate matter for them to interfere '
between the belligerents unless they do
so at the request of both."
Asked whether Great Britain could •
not follow the precedent of Roosevelt
in the Russo-Japanese war. Sir Ed- j
ward did not reply.
Sir Edward denied that Great Britain I
had given a warning of any kind to |
Bulgaria. The movements of British
ships and their intentions, he said, were
precisely similar to those of the other
powers, namely, to protect lives. The
steps had been takrn as a result of
communications which had passed bs- !
tween the powers.
DRINCE WILL
r ASCEND THRONE
VIENNA, Nov. s.—The attitude of
the Austro-Hungarian government in |
regard to the proposal of Premier j
Poincare for the adjustment of the
Balkan situation is clearly stated today
irv the Neve Freie Presse, which says:
"The present military situation in
the Balkans ran not be decisive for the
solution of the whole eastern ques
tion. Premier Poincare gives to the
Balkan states more than they have de
manded.
"The proposal, which is a most rad
ical expression of pan-Slavist tenden
cies, is so one sided that it can hardly
find the approval of all the powers and
particularly of Austria-Hungary."
The anxiety of Austria that Servia
shall not occupy Albania and thus se
cure the outlet on the Adriatic sea,
which the Servians are so desirous of,
probably will provide a great bone of
contention. Servia has been warned
already from Vienna that her armies
have gone far enough to the west. This
warning Is repeated today by the semi
official Fremdenblat. After praising
the Servian soldiers for their humanity
the newspaper says:
PRIXCE GHIRKA FOR THRONE
"The Servians having approached the
frontier of* a territory occupied without
exception by Albanians, it is hoped and
expected now that Servia will avoid
the raising of those differences which
the historic character of the Albanians
make insurmountable."
Prince Ghirka, the president of the
Albanian ' national commission, it is
said, is to be proclaimed king of Alba
nia.
The Austrian government notified tile
Turkish government on its request for
mediation that Austria would first have
to confer with the other great powers,
and when this had been done an an
swer would be given. •
The correspondent at Scutari of the
Reichspost telegraphs that the Monte
negrins again crossed the Boyana river,
but that they met a superior force of
Turks and were compelled to retire.
Some of the Montenegrin shells hit
houses In the Christian quarter of
Scutari and several persons were
wounded.
The Turkish military hospital also
was hit by shells fired at a magazine
close by.
FIRST DIVISION LEAVES
The first division of the Austro-
Hungarian fleet left the naval station
at Pola for the east last night. The
commander of the division has been
ordered to report to the Austro-Hun
garian ambassador at Constantinople.
The Turkish harems In Constanti
nople have been transferred to Brusa,
in Asia Minor, which was at one time
the capital of the Turkish sultans and
lies about 57 miles to the southeast of
Constantinople.
The archives of the city also have
been sent there.
The Turkish government has sent an
urgent request to the powers at least
to prevent the Bulgarians from enter
ing the capital.
MORE TROOPS
GO TO FRONT
SOFIA, Bulgaria, Nov. s.—Reinforce
ments continue to proceed to the front
from the Bulgarian capital in consider
able numbers. Some Servian troops
passed through here yesterday fon
Adrianople. and today eight battalions
of volunteers, including Macedonians
and Russians, entrained for the front.
It is reported that fighting still con
tinues in the neighborhood of Serai and
Tchorlu.
MINISTER VIEWS
AUSTRIA'S STAND
BUDAPEST, Nov. 5. — The Austro-
Hungary foreign minister. Count yon
Berchthold, in a statement today to the
foreign affairs committee of the Aus
trian delegation, said:
"Whereas the Balkan states origi
nally demanded administrative reforms
for the improvement of the condition of
their racial brethren in Turkey, the
successes they have gained in the war
have considerably enlarged their aspi
rations, which no longer are consistent
with the principle of the integrity of
Turkey.
"While the policy of Austria is not
influenced by any tendencies toward ex
pansion, our care must be to
combine, according to the need, the
maintenance of peace with the supreme
duty imposed upon us of defending the
interest of the monarchy from any im
pairment."

GREAT CHANCE GIVEN
FEDERAL WIRELESS CO.
British Government May Give It
a Big Slice of Business
[spec«'af Cable to The Call]
LONDON, Nov. s.—As a result of the
present parliamentary investigation
into charges of irregularities in grant
ing a monopoly by the postmaster gen
eral to the Marconi wireless interests, it
is believed that the Federal Telegraph
company of San Francisco, which owns
the Poulsen system and which has been
greatly improved by its engineers, now
stands a good chance to receive at least
a liberal share of the British govern
ment's business.
The house of commons has issued a
large number of summons to editors
and magazine, writers who printed or
wrote articles alleging improper mo
tives in the giving of the Marconi con
tract.
It Is understood that a fair fllvision
of the government business among
competitive concerns will be made the
basis of a resolution to be submitted to
the house of commons in a form which
government leaders are said to be will
ing to accept.

STRANGE STORY
OF "HEAVENLY
TWINS" RETOLD
Papers in Lawsuit Shed New
Light on Romance of Gale
and Mac Perkins
Though lost to sight for years and
all but forgotten by the inner social
circle Jn which the principals moved,
the strange romance of Gale Perkins', a
San Francisco young man, and Miss
Mac Perkins, daughter of United States
Senator Perkins, that caused the pair
to be known -us the "Ilf-avenly Twins"
despite the fact that they are not re
lated, has not yet found oblivion..
Buried deep in the secret file at the
county clerk's office there has been a
sealed envelop containing , papers in a
law suit that sheds more light on the
"Heavenly Twins" story th:in was ever
brought to public view before. Seals
on the long envelope were broken Mon
day, when the case came to trial in
Judge Van Nostrand's court, and
glimpses of the paat are revealed in
an action against O-ile Perkins" mother
nnd grandmother to recover on notes
signed by them to pay some of the high
bills of the extravagant "Twins"
on a trip to New York in 1906.
The suit is direct"'' against Mr?.
Madge G. Perkins and Mre. Mary Hur
ley, her aged mother, who live at 1820
Pacific avenue. "'Heavenly Twins" Is
the name coined by Mrs. Madge Per
kins to describe her son, Gale. and
Mls.v Mac Perkins, daughter of the
senator, and sieter of Mrs. Cleveland
Baker , , wife of the attorney general of
Nevada, who are freely mentioned in
connection with the suit.
FOUR \OTES GIVEN
According to the complaint, which
tins lipfn amended two or three times
since it was. filed originally in August,
1909. Gale Perkins and his •'Twin," Mac.
contracted a bill for board and lodg
ing at the Carlton hotel, in New York,
amounting to $1,000 during the sum
mer of 1906. When confronted with
the hotel's statement, they said that
they could not pay and Mrs. Madge
Perkins, who was in New York at the
time, gave $400 in cash and four notes
for $150 each, indorsed by William B.
McXiece, a New York attorney.
When the time limit expired the
notes wpre still tinpaid and McNiece
redeemed them. Several letters from
Mrs. Perkins and Mrs. Hurley, who as
sumed responsibility for payment,
plradiner for more time and contain
ing various hits about the activities
of the "Twins," are offered in evidence
in the suit, in which McNiecp is ask
ing for the original $600 he was forced
to pay, plus interest to date.
BOTH FAMILIES OBJECT
Only sidelights are shown on the at
tachment of the "Heavenly Twins,"
whose runaway to New York in 1906
is still remembered. Gale Perkins was
just out of Stanford and aspired to
marry the senator's daughter, Mac. Ob
jection on the part of both families
precipitated their flight, which, in turn, I
precipitated the present suit, for the]
young man failed to find a gentlemanly
occupation in the great eastern metrop
olis that could pay for his expensive
apartments at the Carlton. His mother
went east to look after them, but still
Gale's bills were too large, and at last
she came home, bringing her son and
separating the "Twins" forever.
Depositions in the suit were made
by A. C. McClellan, proprietor of the
Carlton, and McNiece last January in
New York. McClellan testified that he
had never met Mrs. Perkins until the
day she signed the notes, but that he
had known Gale Perkins and the girl.
The latter, he said, was known at the
hotel as Mrs. Perkins, Gale's wife.
THOIGHT MRS. PERKINS RICH
Mc>7lece's position tells how he
came to indorse the notes on the repre-
I sentation of Mrs. Madge Perkins that
! she was a wealthy San Francisco
woman and had large property interests
here. Asked if any one lived at the
Hotel Carlton with Gale Perkins, Mc-
Xiece replies in his deposition:
"A woman whom he introduced as
his wife."
The letters offered by McNiece con
tain further facts in support of his j
claim. The first was written by Mrs.
Perkins from Philadelphia, November
20, 1906, and is in part as follows:
Dear Mr. McNiece—l have not
forgotten, not one thing, that I
should have paid one fifty on the
tenth, but I just could not do it.
Things were all wrong when I got
here and I telegraphed home for
money, which they sent me. They
are of the opinion that I am as
crazy as Gale, and I often guess I
am.
The "Heavenly Twin" is still here,
waiting for the session at Wash
ington, patient and a trifle sub
dued. T have kept my arm around
them both as far as I could reach,
but I feel the stretch is telling on
me and I'm tired and nervous.

(EXPERIENCE FIERCE"
The second letter produced by Mr-
Niece was written by Mr?. Perkins
from San Francisco, in answer to a
letter from the attorney to Mrs. Hur
ley. It tells of some of the antics of
the "Twins" and is in part as follows:
San Francisco. Dec. 14, '07.
Dear Mr. McNiece: Your letter,
addressed to mamma, I opened, as
she is very ill, so much so that the
folks sent for Gale and me.
I don't know what to say to you
about my indebtedness. I simply
crave your leniency in the matter
and ask you to wait and rely on
our honor for payment.
The folks got personal loans for
our trip west, but I'm glad I'm
home, for I had one of a time
in New York, even after the Heav
enly Twins were separated.
Nothing could induce me to
leave home again and go through
the daiiy worries which I had. My
experience in Philadelphia was
fierce, and I no sooner paid .one
hotel bill than the Twins ran up
another.
My Jewelry is still in pawn at
Goldsteins in Sixth avenue. That
Hoffman racket I settled by
borrowing: $100 from. Doctor Mγ-
Kenzie and getting $100 from
home. The $100 I got from Doc
tor McX Senator Perkins repaid.
Then I coaxed Mac off to Washing
ton. I left Gale in pawn at the
Hoffman.
While in Washington I saw Sen
ator Perkins and I think his main
ambition at the time of our visit
was to get Mne back to New York,
so back to New York we came.
Then Senator P. paid for Mac at
the Martha Washington. until
March, when he came to New York
and took her home.
There was much sighing and
promises on the part of the Twins
and when they separated Gale
vowed eternal love and so did she.
There is the S. F. bay between
Onkland and & F.. but I think if
ail the ferryboats' were destroyed
the Twins would swim. They are
the hardest problem I have ever
tackled, and It would take a
Solomon to get ahead of them.
If you will be patient a little
longer, we won't forget. Just as
soon as I can manage it and money
matters are loosened up a little I
will send you a part anyway. Very
truly yours.
MADGE G. PERKINS.
For the last four years, almost since
her return from New York. Mrs. Madge
Perkins has been teaching school at
the Homestead school, • San Mateo,
whither she goes every day. Her sis
ter. Miss Jennie Hurley, is principal of
the Sherman grammar school in San
Francisco. Gale Perkins Is said to be
on a ranch in Mendocino county, sep
arated forever from his fond "Twin."
When the sealed papers were opened
in court Monday, Attorney Joseph C.
Meyerstein, representing the plaintiff,
and Fisher Ames, counsel for Mrs. Per
kins, informed Judge Van Nostrand that
their testimony was contained in the
depositions and answers and that they
were ready to submit the case. They
were granted the privilege of filing
briefs within the next 10 days.

C. CALVIN WRECKS
AUTO TO SAVE 4
Capitalist Drives Car Into an
Embankment When the
Brakes Fail
The presence of mind of C. Calvin In
steering the automobile he was driving
into an embankment when the brakes
failed to hold kept the machine from
going over the grade and saved the
lives of himself, Morris Levy, secretary,
and Howard Vernon, stenographer of
the grand jury, and Isaac Goldman, fore
man of the 1910 grand jury. Sunday
night in Marln county.
The party was returning: from a fish,
ing trip across the bay, and had got
about two miles from Alta when the
brakes refused to work. The machine
was going rapidly and Calvin, who was
at the wheel, saw that to save the pas-
I sengers he would have to do something,
and do it quick. He turned the automo
bile into the road bank, completely
wrecking the machine. None of the men
was hurt beyond a slight shaking up
except Vernon, •who was placed under
the care of a physician Monday, suffer
ing from a wrenched back.
The party waited with the wrecked
car for a couple of hours, when another
machine came along and brought them
to Sausalito, where they took the boat
home.
The accident followed a day of hap
penings that caused the party more or
less trouble. When they left homo Sat
