DESTRUCTIVE FIRE POURED IN
Turkish Gunners Are Reported to
Have Stood by Pieces After
Demolition of Forts.
London, Oct. 4.-A Rome dispatch
from Tripoli says it is believed that
the garrison has suffered very heavy!
losses and that the governor is wound
ed. It appears that even after the
demolition of the fort the Turkish
gunners continued to serve such guns
as were available. It became neces
sary for the warships to train their
guns upon the ruins. Several private
houses were destroyed by fire, but
none was struck by shells. The town
has been entirely deserted by the in

Tripoli has surrendered.
It is reported from Rome that ne
gotiations for the surrender of Tri
poli will be entered into today. It is
also uncertain whetmer any Italians
landed, but the contingent of the ex
peditionary force has left Italy, and
according to Malta reports the occu
pation of Tripoli will begin today or
Friday by the landi,ng of contingents
from the warships.
The postoffice ana the Italian con
sulate at Malta are accepting mail for
Tripoli, and the consul has told news
paper correspondents that they will
be allowed to land in Tripoli Friday.
While Italy is thus carrying out the
programme of establishing herself in
Tripoli, the Turkish government is in
a helpless tangle. The ministry is vir

*Djerba, Tunis, Oct. 4.--Tripoli has
been bombarded twice by the Italian.
fleet. The first shot was fired shortly t
after 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon.
Shelling was resumed early this morn
ing after a quiet night.
There was a steady, but slow fire
from the war ships until dusk last
evening, and shots also came from the I
forts in the town. The French steamer
Tafana took a delegaton from Djerba c
to the scene of hostilities. Among the I
party was the Frenen' consul general, i
M. Leon, who made several ineffec-!3
tual attempts "to land. The Tafana IC
was stopped about 10 ra1:es from I
Tripoli by a boat ma~i the cruiser
Varese, which ordered her to r.eture, I

No Sign or Life.
There was no S!.n of life in the a
city, which appearea deserted, but the,
Turkish flag flew from the castle and 1'
forts. The first shots were directed
toward Chrcehatetti fort and later*
Kerekereche fort was shelled.
As the first shells burst over Tripoli
the garrison seemed to awake. It re
turned the fire with n-gor and energy.
A heavy cannonade was kept up on
both sides for a few minutes and then
firing became desultory. So far as
could be seen no warship was hit.
Vice Admiral Faravelli at 4 o'clock
ordered his ships to cease firing to
permit the town to surrender, but no
sign was given, and after a few min
utes the ships began again.
Great Havoc Wrought.
This time great hav"oc was wrought.
Fortifications were razed, the forts
suffered severely and the lighthouse to
the northwest was destroyed by shells
from the Garibaldi. There was no
