London. Oct. SI.?A four days' bat?
tle In Thrace ended In the triumph of
the Bulgarian commander-ln-chlef,
whose skilful strategy has probably |
brought to a close the Turkish-Balkan
war and made It one of the shoilnst ,
and most remarkable wars on record.
A great Turkish army, estimated at
over 100.000 men. has been defeated ,
and Is In retreat. Constantinople la
said to be at the mercy of the vlc
i
tortous Bulgarian army and a council
sitting at the porte Is discussing the
advisability of suing for peace.
This u news which comes from
Constantinople. It Is only s fortnight
since Turkey declared war. The first
week of the campaign closed with the j
dramatic fall of Klrk-Klllaseh, fully
revealing for the first time the disor?
ganisation, bad morale and Ineffi?
ciency of the commissariat of tho
Turkish army. Today the army is
defeated and within a short distance
of Constantinople and Its line of de?
fense Is broken. Only the briefest
snd vaguest aoounts of the groat
and vaguest accounts of the great
battle have yet been received, for the
* ir has been remarkable In that no
war correspondent ha? been allowed
with the front except In the c?se of
the little Montenegrin <ampa?ln
against Scutari
No Independent personal narrative
of the absorbing events has been pos?
sible and the world has had to depend
on biased official accounts.
Apparently Xaslm Pasha has been
completely out manoeuvred by S.v
voff'a skill. The Bulgarian turning
movement along (he Black sea ap?
pears to have been a feint which In?
duced the Turkhh commander to
throw his main army to the eastward
to such effect that the Bulgarian force
on this side had the greatest difficulty
In holding the Turks In check. The
Bulgarians gave w ty and thus enabled
Xaslm Pasha to leport to Constanti?
nople some succeso.
In the meantime. however, Oen.
Savoff hurled his great strength at
the weakened Turkish left wing,
which he crushed at Lulebugas. The
fighting along the whole front, which
evidently ha? been of the most stub?
born and determined character, wair
carried on day and night without In?
termission and both sides lost heavily.
The capture >f Xaslm Pasha's
headquarters at Hchorlu. to which
town the defeated Turks retreated,
has not as yet b?<en reported, but is
hourly expected at Sofia. In this event
the Turks will be within the defen?
sive llnea with only one remaining
fortified position protecting Constanti?
nople. It lies 26 rallea to the north?
west of the capital.
Adrtanople still holds out but has
lost Its Importance now that the Turks
have met their Sedan at Luleburgus

TBE CITY OF APRIANOPLK.
Aiuhnt Town for Which Turks and
Itulgurs Contend.
Adrlanoph?, toward which the liul
Kurir.ns are now fighting their way, '
ranks a* the third city in size and im?
portance in European Turkey, Con
?tantlnop'.e and Salonlca alono taking
precedence over It. It la the capital of I
the vilayet bearing the same name and
baa played an important part in Turk
lth history. That Adrianople is do
serving of the name city is Bhown by
the census of 1905, which seven years
Jgo estimated tho population at 80,
(00. About half of this number are
Turks, while the remainder Is a con?
ti lomerate lot of Jews, Greeks, Uulgars
und Armenians.
In appearance Adrlonaple is thor?
oughly Orlential, a fact which often
surpitses the tourists. For the most
part the city is a mass of ancient wood?
en structres with narrow streets
binding In and out. There are, how?
ever, some modern buildings which
ty comparison reveal the sordid gen?
eral appearance of the place. The
city, of course, has its better sections.
Filled with relics of old Turkey,
sights of great interest to the visitor,
tho most prominent building for the
tJurlst's view Is the ancient Mosque of
Sultan Sellm 11. Although smiller than
the famous liagiasfta at Constanti
r ople the mosque of the third city is
acknowledged to be the most magnifi?
cent of its kind and not generally
known except to the Turks themselves.
The constant espionage to which the
traveller in Adrianople is subjected
and the general unrest w hi h Is felt
la the city at all times is responsible
lor the mosque remaining in obscur
1 y. The city Is practically under mar?
tial rule most of the time and the
?uthorltles are usually taxed to the
utmost to preserve order. The very I
fact that the railroad, which covers
the 137 miles to the capital away to
the southeast, is regularly policed by I
troops adds to the continual feeling
of insecurity which never falls to hold
tha visitor. i
The Mohammedan has reached al?
most the top notch of desire after he
has said a prayer In the mosque of
Turkey's ancient capital. Only a visit

Constantinople when the Padi-Shan
floes by are higher in the Turks am
I ltion. j
As a vantage point in war the forts
of Adrianople are considered most im- j
I-ortant. The guns of the City com?
mand the chief position near the F?ul- I
m man frontier, and their occupa- I
tloa by a hostile force means a strong
foothold for the enemy. The a* ma
rvent of the stronghold Is the most I
modern thing In the city, for the I
strategic prominence of the position
vaa not lost sight of by the govern?
ment. The city occupies both sides
of the Tvnja river at its confluence
v.ith the Maritza, which is navigable
to this point In winter and spring.
Pnos Is the nearest city reached by j
the waterway.
Among the retter buildings of Adri- j
anople are tho Idadleh school, the I
schools of Arts and Crafts, the Jewish I
Communul school, tho Greek college, I
Zappelon, the Imperial Ottoman bank J
and tho Tobaovo Regie. Then there!

Throughout the day petitions have
been circulated, which were signed by
hundreds, requesting that troops bo

part of the council and citizens is a
puzzling question, for Tuesday, the
police were unable to cope with the
situation.

Columbia. Oct. 31.?The Initial j
steps looking to the organization of |
a strong and active State Plant Breed?
ers' Association were taken at a con?
ference held at 6 o'clock this evening
in the State Library at the State
House. The conference was attended
by such men as D. R, Coker, of Harts
vllle, who has done so much for cot?
ton; A. W, Brabham, of Olar, who is
the originator of the widely known
Brabham cowpea, and many others.
E. J. Watson, State commissioner of
agriculture, was called to tho chair,
and presided over the conference, out?
lining at the outset the vital Import?
ance of such an association at this
stage of the State's agricultural de?
velopment, and stressing the need for
the organization to be a vigorous
working one, reaching with teaching
and practice into the uttermost far
rural districts.
Mr. Coker, when called upon, made
the necessity for such an orgaization
perhaps even clearer. He dealt with
the cotton situation, and showed the
difference between real, established
varieties of long staple cottons and
so-called long staple cottons. He
showed how by Intelligent handling a
county like Darlington, for Instance,
can add a million dollars annually to
the Income from cotton grown with?
out increase of acreage. This carried
out generally could add some forty
millions of dollars to the State's in?
come from her cotton crop annually.
Next year, he said, a greatly increased
acreage would be devoted to long
staple, and the next year even a
greater acreage. All kinds of seed
without regard to character would be
planted, and it was timely now to
sound a pointed note of warning to
the average farmer as to the differ?
ence between real long staple va?
rieties and the necessity for keeping
them pure, and the so-called long
staple, with all kinds of lengths of
staple on the same plant. Too gener?
al planting without regard to well
bred and selected seed would weigh
down and break the market. He
touched also upon the necessity for
tho establishment of local markets,
so that farmers would not have to
haul too far to market their cotton.
on motion of Capt W. R. Low
ranee the conference tendered Mr.
Coker a vote of thanks for his valu?
able address.
By resolution, unanimously adopt?
ed, Mr. Coker, after declining to serve
at first, was made chairman of a cen- I
tral committee, which will perfect all
the details of the proposed organiza?
tion, and report to a general meeting
to be called by that committeo at a
later date to perfect fhe organization.
This central committee, at tho sug?
gestion of Mr. Samuel Dibble, of Or?
angeburg, || to appoint committees of
two in each Congressional district to
work up a live interest in the Asso?
ciation before the general conference
is held. I
By unanimous action the conference
named' Commissioner Watson and
President Dabba as members of the
central committee. The other mem
hers of the committee were named by
Mr. Watson, under the resolution, as
follows: Prof. J. N. Harper, Clem

GILREATII ISSUES STATEMENT.
Former Sheriff of Greenville County
Discusses 111m Recent Artest und
Sub-sapient Ihn hurKf.
Greenville, Oct. 31.?"The- fact of
my arrest on the charge ('f assisting
in the escape of Vaughun and my
treatment at the hands of the officer
Who arrested me have already been
given in detail before the public,"
says J. 1). Gilreath in discussing his
recent arrest on a charge of assisting
T. U. Vaughan to escape from the
Greenville jail.
"Knowing thatt he preliminary in?
vestigation was to be had within a
short time 1 have refrained up to this
time from making any statement re?
garding the accusation. 1 now wish to
say in the most unqualified terms
that the accusation is absolutely false.
It is a deliberate 'frame-up' on the
part of my personal enemies for the
purpose of injuring my reputation and
usefulness in this community and if
possible securing my conviction by
false testimony.
' The preliminary hearing was set
for Wednesday afternoon. The prose?
cution was fully advised of this fact.
When the case was called the prosecu?
tion moved for a continuance on the
ground that they were not ready for
a hearing, could not get their wit?
nesses, etc., whereas the affidavit of
W. L. Mauldin, upon which the war?
rant was issued, stated the witnesses
to be Hendrix Rector, Sheriff Poole,
Deputy Sheriff Huntsinger and J. P.
Wesson, all of whom were either in
Greenville, or could easily have been
secured. When the magistrate an?
nounced that I was entitled to a hear?
ing the counsel for the prosecution
asked to ha\e the warrants dismissed.
To this my counsel objected most
strongly, taking the position that by
making this charge the prosecutor
had made the matter a public one
and he had no right to control it,
and that I was entitled to a full in?
vestigation of the charge; that the
witnesses named in the warrants
ought to bo examined and if
they knew anything to my disad?
vantage the public ought to know It,
but on the other hand if they knew
nothing to my disadvantage I was en?
titled to have this go before the pub?
lic. From the statement of the at?
torney representing the prosecutor it
appears that the only basis for this
outrageous charge was a statement of
Vaughan made after his conviction of
a most heinous crime on his way to
the penitentiary.
"Mr. Mauldin in this statement de?
clared that Vaughan was utterly un?
worthy of belief, and yet he practi?
cally announced that it was upon th s
Statement alone that I was arrested.
How such a statement, absolutely
false entirely, could have been secured
from the poor unfortunate prisoner
under condemnation of death, those
men alone know who have been work
ins upon him. All that 1 can say is
what I have already said, the charge
is absolutely false and I stai d ready
at any and all times to meet any ac?
cuser who dares come forward. As a
matter of fact, I was out of the city
at the time of his escape and knew
nothing of the matter until 9 o'clock
the next morning on my return.
"As an evidence that there was per?
sonal animosity at the bottom of this
outrageous matter I need only to re
fer t?? the fact that Hendrlx Elector,
the officer who arrested me and put
me in jail, as he was unlocking the
doors he said 'You criminal, you be
sure that your sins will tind you out.'
He further stated, 'You are guilty. We
have got all the evideme we want.
We have been working on the case
for two months." Yet having said this,
when the time for the investigation
comes, although named in the war?
rant as a material witness he fails to
appear at the hearing. I beg to say
further that Immediately after being
locked in the cell and before Jailer
Rector left the building the other
prisoners came to me, and, speaking
through Cleave Harrison, announced
that l hati to pay a quarter and take
IT) to 50 lashes. Just at this time
sheriff Pooie came into the building
and 1 called out to him and told him
what I had been threatened with, and
thereupon he Immediately unlocked
the doors to take me out.
"The question as to whether I have
been fairly and honorably treated I
leave to a right thinking public. The
people of Greenville know that l have
always stood for the enforcement of
law in the city of Greenville and that
my treatment is due to the enemies
that I have made bj this course."

Ills*' of Over Twenty Points at Open?
ing Followed by Reaction During
Late Trading, with Clo*c Showing
About Half of Larly Advance Re?
tained ? Much Outside Buying on
Prospect of Considerably Colder
Weather.
New York, Oct. 31.?There waa
further advance during today's early
trading In the cotton market, and Jan?
uary contracts Bold up to 11.43, or
practically 110 points above tho low
level of two weeks ago. Realizing
became very heavy on this advance,
and the market reacted rather sharply
in the late trading, with the close
easy, although last prices still show?
ed a net gain of from llal5 peints for
the day.
The market opened firm at an ad?
vance of 19a20 points on overnight
buying orders and in sympathy with
firm cables. There was heavy profit
taking as well as some selling for a
turn, and after showing a net gain of
from 25a26 points prices eased off
some 8 or 9 points from tho best. But
the western belt forecast for lower
temperatures with frost or freezing
weather following recent gains made
a bullish lmpresslcn on sentiment and
appeared to stimulate the outside buy?
ing movement. Offerings were ab?
sorbed very readily on the setback
and the market later in the morning
again became firm and excited.
Commission houses seemed to be
getting numerous buying orders from
outside sources, while some of the lo?
cal traders who had previously op?
posed the advance became buyers on
apprehensions that bad weather in the
western belt might cause a further
scaling down of speculative estimates
of the yield. For a time the demand
was sensationally active f.nd the mar?
ket soon sold into now nigh ground,
with the active months reaching a
net gain of about 30a31 points. As
soon as the demand slackened the
market showed the effects of realilzng
while selling for a turn also became
something of a factor in the late
trading. Last prices were about
18a20 points off from the best.
