OTTOMAN FINALLY APPEALS
TO CONQUERORS FOR PEACE
War Which Has Been Raging for Six Weeks
Seems to Be Nearing Gose
EtHepe*. It is enough to cause Pal
merston or Beaconsfield or Salisbury to
turn and twist In their graves. Even
Sir Edward Grey grinned when the
dispatch was laid before him. It is
also a political disappointment to 1C
Poincaire, the French premier, who
hoped to win the laurels of peacemaker
and become a eori qf Hoosevelt.
What effect the debates between the
Turkish commander and the represent
atives of the allies will have-upon the
attitude of the European concert de
pends, of course, very largely upon
the liberality or harshness of the terms
offered Turkey. If moderate eonces
are given the port*- by the.
victor kings. England, France and Rus
sia then unquestionably will insist
npon noninterference by Austria. There
need be no question as to that. Min
isters here, speaking in the confidence
of private audiences, make it plain that
Austria either will submit gracefully
or be forced to submit at the i>oint
of the bayonet.
Germany and Italy equally are de
termined to support Austria If force is
used by the triple entente. So there is
more danger for Europe than hope f»<r
peace in a moderate peace draft issuing
from the Tohatalja conference.
It is plain that Austria is rushing
blindly in the direction of war. Vienna
is furious at th"« occupation of Alessio
by the Montenegrins and Servians.
Coining hot after the capture of the
other Adriatic port of San Giovanni di
Medua and the search of Austrian ships
which seem to have violated neutrality
and carried contraband supplies for the
Turks immured in Scutari, the occupa
tion of Alessio puts the issue squarely
up to Vienna.
A report was received in London to
night that orders had been issued for
the Austrian troops in Bosnia to move
into the Sanjak and attack the Servian
army there. This report was later con
tradicted as "premature" by the Aus
trian minister of war.
RESULT OF WAR IXCERTAIN
If the allies insist upon exacting from
the porte complete evacuation of all
territory in Kurop*. this may give all
the European powers except Austria
and Rusjja a chance to keep out of the
fresh trouble Xor a time, at least. But
the ultimate upshot of the six weeks'

neighbors no man can gauge tonight.

OTTOMAX ROITBD IX El ROPE
The Bulgarian has reached the
threshold of the capital of Turkey.
The Greek is in Saloniki, the Servian
is in Monastir. All Macedonia, most
of Albania, Janina and Thessaly are
in the hands of the allies. Greek and
Bulgarian have possession of the Orient
railway and a joint assault on Tcha
'alja and Stamboul would have waited
merely for the time necessary to
transport the victorious allies of Bul
garia over Jhe branch line from Mon
astir and the southern belt line from
Saloniki. Certain capitulation for
Vazim Pasha shares for the Greeks the
<ast laurels to be won by the Bulgar
Berzeikers of the campaign in Thrace.
That moment the interests of Bulgar
and Turk called for an armistice and
an end of the war. For. let it not be

tn an iron< '.mi "catch as catch can"
"They may take who hare the

D'Artgnan rule is to apply, "One for all

The allies will fight like panthers
defending their young s«cred soil cap
tured from the crescent. The wisest
men in Europe realize that it is folly to
try to stand between them and their
legitimate spoils of war. In Vienna,
however, at the right hand of the white
haired head of the Hapsburgs is a man
greedy as the wolf, envious as the lynx,"
cunning as the fox, but yet not wise—
Count yon Berchtold, foreign minister
of Austria, who Sβ determined, to have
both the fox's and the lion's share of

to negotiate with a view to an armis

and disorganization that followed the
Kirk-Kilise and Lule-Burgas retreats,
appear to have been remedied and the
army \# now well supplied with food
Under these circumstances the porte
may be induced to make a further
stand, in the hope of securing , easier j
peace conditions. Evidently Bulgaria
has brought up all her* available forces

Charles Campbell Jr. is a natural born
diplomat, which is one of the reasons
why he holds the job of secretary to
the United States embassy in Japan.
He arrived here yesterday on liner
Mongolia holding the record as the
busiest little proposer who ever em
barked on a midocean flirtation. It is
a tribute to his diplomacy that not until
he embarked**on his sixth venture was
his previous philandering discovered.
Charles is young and handsome. He
has polished manners, is a finished con
versationalist, dances well, has a sweet
barytone voice arid an impressionable
heart. Also, and to make the situation
more serious, for any but a diplomat,
the ship was crowded with pretty girls.
