It is also understood IrT diplomatic
quarters in the Austrian capital' that the,

prepared to accept Intervention by the
powers at any moment now.
Special dispatches from .Constantinople
say tho eastern wing of the Turkish
army, which Is now bearing the brunt of
the battle with the Bulgarians, has been
reinforced by four Syrian corps. The cen

picked troops, chiefly regulars, as tho re

this war. He, with several others, left
Russia a few days ago to offer his serv

Turku Claim Success at Vluu
The wings of the Turkish and Bulgarian
armies have been engaged for the Ias
three days In a series of determined
fights. The Bulgarians claim to have de
feated the Turks at Lule Burgas and the
Turks assert that the Bulgarians have
been (driven back around Visa. Of the
fighting in the center no authoritative
report yet has been received.
The Bulgarians are staking everything
on the result of this battle. They have

INDIANAPOLIS. Oct. 31. Sensational
testimony that William J. Burns, a de
tective, was "tipped off as to tho identi
ties of the dynamiters of the Los Angeles
Times building two weeks after the, ex
plosion by a man now on trial was given
at the "dynamite conspiracy" trial today.
J. A. a. Badorf, a special Investigator,
who had been Investigating tho causa of
explosions for five years, testified that
Herbert 3. Hockln admitted having "got
ten In touch" with Burns.
Burns was In Los Angeles soon oftor
the explosion on October 1, 1910.. The Mc-
Namara b. others and Ortle 12. McManlgal
were arrested six months later, after ten
more explosions had taken place.
Badorf testified Hockln had mado ad
missions after he said to Hockln:
"You are a fool for giving all your In
formation to Burns and let him build up
a reputation on information you give. If
you expect Immunity why don't you go
to District Attorney Miller?"
The witness said Hockln admitted that
hp contemplated pleading g llty.
'I may plead guilty," Hockln said, ac
cording the ' witness, "but I'll never go
on the stand. My Ufa wouldn't be worth
three whoops If I took tho stand."
