Constantinople, May 18.?All the pow?
ers have agreed to protest against the
cession of Thessaly to Turkey, and the
abolition of the capitulations.
The Snbah, a newspaper of this city,
publishes a dispatch from Larissa, which
says that, according to the stories told by
Creek deserters, the Greek forces are
abandoning Domokos, owing to lack of
ammunition and food.
The governor of .Tanina telegraphs that
a division of Turkish troops, under Un?
man Pasha, after having fought .for two
days before Ai ta against much superior
forces of Greeks,has succeeded in inflicting
great tosses upon the enemy, and has dis?
lodged the Greeks from the strong posi?
tion which they occupied.
The representatives of the powers held
a long meeting yesterday, and drew up a
note which will be presented to tho Turk?
ish government as soon as one of the Am?
bassadors receives the necessary instruc?
tions from bis government. This note
does not deal with the ^peace conditions,
but merely repents the request for an ar?
mistice, and declares that the powers will
not permit Greece to be crushed.
Although it is assured in some quarters
that the Porte in accordance with East?
ern usage, has demanded more in order
to obtain less, it is pointed out tl at if the
Turkish government desired to bargain it
would not have formulated its conditions
The tone of the military officials hero
and elsewhere is most emphatically
against abandoning Thessaly. They ar?
gue that if ^Europe has been unable to
make Greece evacuate Crete, bow will
Eurepe be able to force Turkey out of
FIGHTING AT DOMOKOS.
Athens. May lb.?During the afternoon
a dispatch was received |from the crown,
prince dated Domokos, at 2 p. m., saying!
that at that hour the Greeks were stllM
holding their positions at Domokos.
The crown prince was present during
M. Halli when he called at the legations
protested to the ministers against the
Turkish attack on Domokos and Almyros
when Greece, at the instance of the pow?
ers, was acting purely on the defensive.
The most intense excitement prevails
here. All the cabinet ministers have
been assembled since noon at the minis?
try of marine, where the dispatches from
the fronb'are bsing received. The gravity
of the situation canrot be overestimated.
> Dispatches sent, from Domokos at 7 p.
ni. say that the Greek left wing has fallen
buck toward the centre before thrice the
number ot Turks. The battle continued
after sunset, but, despite the yielding of
the left wing, the Turks were finally re?
pulsed. General Mavromichaelis was

TURKEY'S DEMANDS EXCESSIVE.
St. Petersburg, May 18.?The newspa?
pers of this city protf st vigorously against
the '"excessive and unacceptable" condi?
tions which Turkey demands as the price
of peace,with Greece. They declare that
if Turkey insists upon them Europe will
be obliged to abandon mediation.
Tiie'Novge Vremya says that in the
event of "Turkey's insistence upon the
terms she has proseiited, the powers will
have tc take practical measure* to "pre?
serve Greece from the pretensions threat?
ening her national existence."
j ?London, May 18.?The conditions pro?
posed by the Por^e as the terms of peace
with Greece have been freely discussed in
the lobbies of parliament'to-day, and the
idea of the retrocession of Thessaly and
of such an indemnity a3 is already sug?
gested is ridiculed as impracticable and
Paris, May 18.?The Temps,referring to
the peace terms demanded by Turkey,
says: "Europe cannot consent to the ces?
sion of Thessaly. On the firmness of the
powers now displayed depends the suc?
cess of the whole scheme for reforms and
the peace of Europe."

Headquarters of the Greek Army,
Domokos, May 18, 4 p. m.?The Turkish
attack on the Greek right wing began at
2 o'clock this afternoon, but the flank at?

It is bslieved here that tho attack on

a strategic operation, mid that the Turks
will endeavor to cut between the two
Greek armies, occupy the road leading to
the Orthy Mountains and thus cut off the
retreat of the crown prince.

sense of the conference was decidedly ex?
pressed in favor of the old formula.

BILL RESULTS IN A VICTORY
FOR THE SILVER MEN?TWO
MEN CLAIM THE RIGHT TO PRE?

BOTH OF THEM PROCEEDED TO?
DO SO?THE FUSION BILL WILL
FAIL OF PASSAGE.
Frankfort, Ky., May IS.?The fight .
over th<? Stephensou fusion bill was re?
newed In the senate to-day. The silver
Democrats insisted that Lieut. Gov.
Worthington vacate the?chair pending an
appeal from one of Ids decisions by Sen?
ator Bronston on the question of ''indi?
cating" members who are present but re?
fuse to vote. Governor Worthington,
backed by the Republicans aud gold Dem?
ocrats, refused to vacate the chair.
Senator Goebel, the president pro tern.,
who was presiding, peuding the appeal
from Worthington's decision, demanded
Ins right to the chair. The president re?
fused to recognize him, and lifting a chair
over the clerk s desk, Goebel took his
seat beside the clerk, and the two bodies
were in session amid the wildest confu?
sion. Bitter words passed between Sen?
ator Bronston, of the silver side, and Gov
ernor Worthington, of the Worthington
senate. The Worthington senate adjourn?
ed until 8 o'clock this! fifternaon, aud tho
Goebel senate, which, while in the minor?
ity, is backed bv the clerks and all tho
other officers, adjourned until live min?
utes before !t o'clock.
Later an agreement was made that both
senates should meet at il o'clock and ad?
journ uutil to-morrow at 11 o'clock, when
Senator Goebel shall .'he in the chair, and
the appeal si ill pending. The journal
will the nbegin where the clerk ceased to
act. This means that the silver minority
has won; that all the majority is not as
warmly for the fusion bill as they seem,
aud it will not be passed.
