The governor did not intend to ex- J
press himself about an extra session
so soon after his election. Although
he has favored the idea of an extra
session, he had promised to spend more I
time in ascertaining public opinion. \
With the time to he consumed in dis- j

postponed practically two years.
Immediately upon his election the

From Death Drop
In Elevator Shaft
[By Federal Wtrelea]

J. O. Simpson, a carpenter, em
ployed on the new King George
hotel at Rose avenue and the
ocean front, had a miraculous
escape from being killed this
morning when he fell down the
open elevator shaft. His jacket
caught on a protruding spike
and held him in safety until the
elevator was rushed up to where
he was hanging and he was re
leased by fellow workmen.
Simpson fell from the fifth floor
and hung several minutes in the
open shaft, four stories above
ground, with his head down.
His face was badly lacerated.

Is Impenetrable
Against Bullets
BERLIN, Nov. 15. — A light metal j
shield, said to render infantry prac- j
tically impenetrable against bullets, j
has been invented by a German en
gineer named Sehaumann.
Volleys fired at 15 yards at the
Dahlen rifle range only slightly dented
one of the newly invented plates, equiv- j
alent in weight to a plate of nickel i
steel of six millimeters' thickness (just [
under one-quarter of ?n inch).
It Is said that the United States,
Russia and Austria were represented
at the experiments and are making j
active efforts to secure the invention.

SCENES FROM THE WAR ZONE IN EUROPEAN TURKEY.
Turkish prisoners taken in battles about Adrianoblc, on the march to Bulgaria, guarded bp their captors,
1 are shown in the upper picture. Below is a view of ths ancient and crumbling Theodosian wall, flanked by \]6
I fighting towers, about 90 of which still stand, which a'e about Irve miles from Constantinople. It is here that
the Turh intended to make an attempt to check the advance of the allies after defeat at Tchatalja. > The por
trait is that of General Savoff, the now famous commander of the Bulgarian army, who insists as one of the peace
conditions thai Nazim Pasha surrender the entire Turkish army.
for participation in a p«'ker game in
quarters, Gottfried ilugg, 60 .years old,
a TTteranof four campaigns, shot him
self in the abdomen Jn his rooms at
Fort Winfield Scott yesterday morning
and is in the hospital, Pre
sidio, at the point of death. t
Before firing the shot liugg wrote a
pathetic letter to the company com
mander. Captain Koch, saying he felt
his career had been blasted and that
life was no longer worth while.
Several hours after Hugg was sent
to the operating table Charles W.
Caton, Tenth company, coast artillery,
attempted to take his life in quarters.
He had tilled the magazine of his rifle
with cartridges and was about to turn
the muzz!* 1 toward his heart when sev
eral took the weapon from
him. He Has sent to the Detterinan
hospital, where he I* held-for observa
tion. Despondency over the heavy
fines and reductions inflicted on his
companions of the Twenty-seventh is
given as a cause for his act.
Arrested for Gambling
The attempted suicides grew out of
wholesale arrests several days ago at
Fort Winfleld Scott when it noncom
missioned officers and 25 privates of
the Twenty-seventh company were
caught playing a petty game of poker
in their quarters. This was followed
by fines of $5 each against privates
and of fines ranging from $10 to $60.
in addition to demotion to the ranks,
against sergeants and corporals.
Major William C. Davis, as senior
officer, presided at the summary court.
Although no order was issued by the
war department prohibiting gambling
in a friendly way among the soldiers,
Major Davis imposed the penalties,
which were said by other officers and
men who were acquainted with the
facts to have been excessive.
Major Davis was relieved as sum
mary court officer yesterday and his
place was filled by Major J. C. John
son. Colonel J. P. Wisser, command
ant at the fort, approved the findings
of Major Davis.
Played for Pastime
His comrades said that Hugg often
played cards for as little as a 5 cent
stake and that lie never played for
the money he might win. In his let
ter to his captain, Hugg stated his
Innocence of gambling for profit.
A pathetic feature of the case is the
fact that in three more years he would
have retired on sufficient pay to have
kept him in comfort for the remainder
of his life. He would have received
three-quarters of a first sergeant's pay,
which would have been #67.50 a month.
If he recovers.and accepts his reduced
rank, he will receive barely %29 a
month on retirement, besides suffering
the humiliation of being a private when

Steward Piatt cleansed the numerous
wounds on the boy's head and face,
young Rudolph said:
A lady asked me to go into the
yard where the dog was and tell
another lady she wanted to see
her. Just after I shut the gate the
dog jumped on me. It knocked me
down and bit me all over. 1 cried
for some one to help me, but
nobody came. Then I got up on my
feet and fought the dog and
kicked It. but the dog knocked me
down again. Then a man came and
knocked the dog down with a club.
I don't know who the man ie.
The last place the dog bit me was
on the hand. It was a big, white
bulldog and I never say It before.
Examination showed that the dog's
teeth had torn the youngster's left
check badly just below the eye, and
gashes we're found on his chin.

Strategy of General Savorf Will

BULLETIN
LONDON, Nov. 16.—Bulgaria's
terms of peace to Turkey, as re
ported at Vienna and sent from
that city by the correspondent of
the Daily Telegraph, consist of
seven stipulations. The stipula
tions include :
FlßST — Surrender of the Tchatalja
army and its withdrawal, guarded
by Bulgarians.
SECOND — Provides for the evacua
tion by the Turks of Adrianople,
Scutari, Monastir and Janina.
THIRD — CaIIs for payment of a war
indemnity).
FOURTH — Demands the surrender
of conquered territory.
FIFTH — CaIIs for the international
ization of Constatinople.
SlXTH — Provides for opening the
Dardanelles and making Saloniki a
free port.
Since Bulgaria baa already expressed
a willingness to leave the status of
Constantinople and Dardanelles to the
powers, aays the correspondent, the
fifth and sixth clauses of the terms as
reported here appear Improbable.
PAUL LAMBETH
[Special Cable to The Call]
LONDON, Nov. 15—By the cap
ture of Kilios, General Savoff
is now in a position to enter
Constantinople at will. A dis
patch received tonight indicates that
the actual occupation of Pera and
Galata has been delayed by the Bul
garians, not out of consideration for
or fear of the Turks, but to avoid as
far as possible danger or unpleasant
ness to the foreign colony of Chris
tian residents of the city north of the
Golden horn.
General Savoff's Strategy
General Savoff has planned to make
his assault from the Stamboul side.
and in case tie Turks' decline to
capitulate when the Bulgarians' are
ready for the final attack on the city,
notice is to be given to the Turkish
general in command and to the
foreign ministers requesting the with
drawal of foreigners and Christian
noncombatants to a place of safety.
The Bulgarian artillery officers have
been warned to avoid training their
guns on Pera or Galatia.

hand of the Bulgarian commander in
