TURKISH COURT READY
TO CROSS OVER TO ASIA
Constantinople Appears to Have
Lost Hope of Stemming Al

LONDON, Nov. 6.—Bulgaria Is giv
ing the broken Turkish army no
time for recuperation. In accord
ance with the tactics adopted
throughout the war, the Bulgarians are
following up the defeated Turks with
Flying columns are pushing along the
eeacoast toward the Tchatalja lines, and
It is believed that the main attack will
be made tomorrow or Friday.
Constantinople appears to have lost
hope of stemming the victorious ad
vance even at Tchatalja and the Turk
ish court is ready to cross into Asia.
Apparently, however, the Bulgarian
government has no designs on Con
stantinople itself and would be ready
to conclude peace, provided that
Turkey agrees to surrender Adriano
p!e and some other positions In the
western theater of war and give a
guarantee to bring no more reinforce
\ ments from Asia.
No Disposition to Plead
The porte shows no disposition to
for peace direct with the allies,
and until the big Tchatalja battle has
heen fought, the diplomatic situation is
not likely to be changed.
It is stated that any attempt by Ser
via to encroach on Albania will be re
garded by Austria as a casus belli. On
the other hand. Servia maintains that
a port on the Adriatic is a matter of
life and death for her, and that coun
try fails to see why her presence there
should be detrimental to the interests
of any other power.
Servia argues that she would only be
regaining possession of what belonged
to her before the downfall of the Ser
vian empire, Adriatic seaports
were nourishing Servian towns.
The fall of Monastir is not confirmed,
but is considered not improbable. The
Greeks are crossing the Varda river and
the fall of Salonika is reported immi
A late dispatch from Constantinople
received from the military correspond
ent of the London Daily Chronicle gives
a harrowing picture of the scenes en
acted when the routed remnants of
Nazim Pasha's army reached Rodosto.
"They arrived," he cays, "famished and
weary, but full of hate against the
'infidel. , "
Then the veneer of European civil
ization vanished like mist in the morn
Scenes of Horror
Scenes of horror followed. *
The town was given up to massacre,
outrage and pillage. It was set afire
in seven places. Children were hurled
into the raging names.
In an agony of fear many took to
boats and tried to get to the open sea,
anywhere away from the enemy. In
some cases the boatmen were mas
sacred; in others those who traveled to
the sea found another, yet a more
merciful, death beneath the waters.
Nor does Rodosto stand alone in its
baptism of fire and blood. The victori
ous march of the Bulgarian army pro
duces similar scenes wherever the Turks
expect the coming of the enemy. The
dread of a coming massacre almost
paralyzes the population. It awaits the
thunder of the guns of the allies, fear
ing that it will be the signal for a tar
nival of blood.
Daily Tales of Murder
The government exercises no moral
authority; every day one hears of iso
lated murders in the Greek and Jewish
quarters, and the news increases the
panic. Nazim Pasha has sent a report
to the ministry of war which throws a
flood of light upon the history of the
war. The Turkish commander de
scribes the condition of the broken rem
nant of his army as desperate. Disci
pline, says Nazim, is abominable.
Fifty officers have been condemned
and shot for various offenses. The com
mander admits that he shot three with
his own revolver in an outburst of rage I
at their cowardice.
Twenty thousand wounded Turks are
being carried toward Constantinople to
add to the 15,000 wounded there now,
without hope of adequate hospital room
