Balkan war the news from Const an- '
tlnople Is the herald of another Tur?
kish defeat at the Tchatalja lines, '
guarding Conatantin ?ple. where a bat?

two or three days. The Turkish ad- 1
mission that so many wounded are 1
arriving at the capital as to show
that the Turk* are offering fierce re?
sistance has great algflcance in view
of the previous admissions of a simi?

preparing the minds of Turks for an?
other disappointment. It may be
quite possible thst this will prove
the last great battle of the cam?
There are indications that Kulgarla

f Ing to some reports Kulgarla will be
content with finding winter quarters
for her army while the pes^e nego?

settlements are being arranged.
The question of mediation has been

to the announcement from Tarts that
the Austrian government has agreed

what terms the allies arc disposed
to accept mediation.
^ The revelation of the danger to

Bervla appears to have quickened the
sease of the powers and probably of
the Balkan states also to the impera?

Another factor making for the
speedy cessation of the war Is the
approach of sever winter conditions.

EIGHT IN HOUSE PROBABLE.
Aldrich C urrency Bill IJkoly to Be
Bone of Contention.
Washington, Nov 11.?The Aldrich
currency bill bids fair to be a bone of
contention in both houses during the
next session of Congress. Although
strongly recommended by the mone?
tary commission, of which former
Senator Aldrich was chairman, the
currency bill received no attention
from either the Senate or House dur?
ing the session immediately preced?
ing the recent campaign. Its friends
thought it most expedient to lay it
aside until after the election, but the
expec tation is it will be passed dur
the short session, and the report was
current at the Capital today that
there would be an effort to reorganize
the House committee on banking and
currency, so as to insure favorable
action by that committee early in the
next se ssion of Congress in case of its
non-success this winter.
opposition to the bill is more pro?
nounced in the House than in the
Senate, and it is understood Chair?
man Henry, of the House committee
on rules, would exert the influence of
his position to the utmost to prevent
the bringing in of a rule for the con?
sideration or the measure unless it
be recommended by a house caucus.
His position is that because of the at?
titude of the Baltimore Convention
the bill should no* be acted upon by
the House Without the positive ap?
proval of a majority of the Democra?
tic members given in advance of such
opponents of the bill aready are
lining up for Representative Carter
Glass, of Virginia, as the next chair?
man of the banking commitee. The
chairmanship now is held by Repre?
