BULLETIN.
I3NDON, Nov. 4. The Turkish army
occupying the lino from Tchorlu to
Istrnndla was repulsed today by the Bui
garlans on the eastern flank, according to
a news agency dispatch from Sofia.
LONDON, Nov. 4.-The Turkish ambas
sador herohas been directed by the Ot
toman' government to Inform Great I3rl-
ta.n of Turkey.'s willingness to receive!
assistance In bringing about a suspension
of hostllltNs with a view of arriving at a
Peace settlement.
TcwXlk Pasha, immediately on receipt
of the communication from Constantino
ple, went to the Foreign office and con
ferred with Blr Edward Grey, the British
foreign minister, for two hours.
The Balkan nations and Greece are per
sistent In their determination that Tur
key must arrange directly with them tho
terms of peace without tho intervention
of the European powers. This attitude Is
emphasized In a statement from official
sources, which says:
"The Turkish proposal of peace Is satis
factory Tn so far as It shows a destro
to prevent further bloodshed.
"As regards foreign Intervention, how
,ever, there seems to bo no chance of the
Balkan states listening to any foreign
counsels while treating for the arrange
ment of conditions of peace. These must
be settled between the Balkan states and
Turkey direct.
"It may at this stago be' declared 'that
the whole campaign was pre-arranged
and has so far been carried out entirely
In accordance with tho program. For a
considerable time an officer of the Greek
military staff, Colonel DoUsmanls. was
engaged a Sofia' preparing tho military
details, while tho political program was
largely if notentlrcly tno" work of Pre
mier VenWlos ojf.Greece.
"The union of the Balkan states at this
moment Is more close, hearty and inti
mate than It has ever been, for it has
been welded by blood ana common sacri
fice. There is not tho least danger that
nny disagreement as to tho division of
territory or the positions of tho rontlors
will disturb It. It may be assumed that
Inasmuch as the details of tho campaign
were arranged with the greatest care the
same procedure will be followed both at
tho conclusion of hostilities and subse
quent political considerations."
Powers Will Not Aslt Armistice.
Those powers, thus far consulted have
responded to Turkey's appeal for medita
tion by declaring' that they could make
jhly proposals, for peace and could not
approach tho Balkan nations with a
request for nn armistice.
Spmc of the governments have pointed
out that Turkey's proposal for a cessation
of hostilities In other words, an armls
tico would offend the Balkan victors,
Other governments take tho position that
It would be an infringement of. interna
tional law for the moment.
The war must', therefore, continue, and
the Turkish armies, which tho porte has
at last admitted havo been beaten, must
keep on with their unequal struggle
against the victorious Invaders.
It Is hoped and believed still that the
powers will B0h Ilna a formula under
which they can offer their good offices.
The terms of peace themselves aro a

Itnllrnnit Men Think by Increasing
This llMte Mnterlulty the Situa
tion Would He Kntlrcly
mrfereiiC.
The action of tho Interstate Commerce
commission In proposing some kind ot a
drastlo plnn to relieve tho freight car
shortnga Is not disturbing tho officials of
the Omaha roads, they contending that
the situation west ot tho Missouri river
j Is but little uorso than usual at this
season of tho year. According to them
mej-eui critical conditions exist aiong me
"Atlantic seaboard and at gulf ports.
J. A. Munroe, general traffic manager
of tho Union Pacific, returned yester
day from tho cast, whero ho had been,
and In discussing the situation, said that
along tho Atlantic coast the condition
of freight cars Is something, the llko of
which hns never before been experienced.
At Atlantic ports at this time, accord
ing to Mr. Munroe. there are estimated
to ba not less than lO.Oop cars loaded with
stuff for export. Tho boats aro unable
to handlo tho vast quantities that are
rapidly accumulating nud the ware
house facilities are totally Inadequate to
tako care of It.
Mnny Cnrs nt Gulf.
Along tho gulf coast tlie situation Is
equally as bad, only there tho greater
portion of the shipments 'for export are
grain. Whon notice wps- given some days
ngo that the IStycerit per 100 pounds on
wheat fcr export was to bo cancelled,
grain commenced to pour Into New Or
leans, Galveston and other gulf ports at
the rate of hundreds of trains per day,
with tho results that the elevators were
soon filled to capacity and as thero were
not enough boats In port to. tako caro
of tho shipments, tho grain was kept
Jn the cars. At this time the Missouri
Pacific, alone has closo to 3,000 car
tied up along the gulf, nil loaded with
grain and no possibility of their being
unloaded in the near future.
Local roads see relief so far as cars ot
coal is concerned. During the last month
they have hd all thqlr Btqcfc, cars Jp:
BAi?lrA' mhrlhi. ill m tin- flm) aliiMtn nff
tixo -ranges to market. This week will
see the end of this movement, with the
exception of stock from Utatf and Colo,
rado and then thousands of cars will be
released for conl.
The. local roads have a fairly good
supply of closed cars for handling grain
east and merchandise back, but none to
spare. However, they are .not where they
have any fear of tho result of any
order that tho commission may Issue.
Abbott Out Looking
' After the Interests
Of Omaha Indians
F. H. Abbott of the Indian department
spent most of yesterday in Omahn, leav
ing for tho Wlnnobago and Omaha Indian
reservations during tho evening.
While in Omaha Mr. Abbott met a num
ber of the local Jobbers and assured
them that he is doing everything In his
power to facilitate the shipment of good
from tho Omaha Jndlan supply depot.
Tho purpose ofMr. Abbott's visit to the
Winnebago and Omaha Indians Is to look
Into the question of taxation of the prop
erty of the members of these two tribes.
This is tho first time In history, that
their property hns been listed for taxation
and Mr.' Abbott wants to be sure .that
they are getting a square deal. The
listing of the Indian land for taxation
gives Thurston county the revenue from
close to 1,000,000 acres of land that hereto
fore has not paid taxes.

NEW RULE ONJNJUNCTIONS
Supreme Court Makes Radical
Change in Procedure.
FULL NOTICE IS REQUIRED
Other Amendments Are Intended tn
Reduce the Cost of l.ttlnntloii
and, to Klltnlnntc (he
I,tt' Delny, 1
WASHINGTON. Nov.- 4.-Hovolutlouary
changes In procedure In equity cases In
federal courts throughout the Vnlloa
States are effected In revised rules pro
mulgated today by tho supremo court of
tho United States. The object Is to re
duce the cost ot litigation and to elimi
nate delays.
Among new rules Is one which would
prohibit issue" of preliminary injunctions
without notlco to the opposite party nnd
also restricting Issues of temporary re
straining orders.
The new rules were announced by Chief
Justice White from tho ixjnch. One of
tho tasks undertaken by him when he
was appointed chief Justice was to re
form procedure lit the court's. Ho first
rovlscd -the rules of tho' supreme court
Itself.
First' Ohj-.il bV In Half Century.
For seventeen months the chief Ju.stlc.1
and ' Justices Liirtoh ' and Vatidovntc
have been Working 6n the equity mien
as a 'subcommittee of the court. The
present rules came down, .from tho courts
of England, with .only .one or two .revi
sions since the beginning of the repub
lic. The last revision was about fifty
years ago.
The 'chief justice particularly thanked
the lord chancellor of! England for sug
gestions in the revision. .
Chief Justice W'sf.v, explaining tho
rules from tho bei.fh, grouped tho re
forms under four or fvo heads. One was
In regard to the exercise of power by
tho federal courts In equitable matter.
Another was described as being defined
prlrparlly to remove all unnecersary
steps In modes of pleading and to bring
the parties quickly to tho Issue.
Another was described as being a re
striction In tho modes of taking testi
mony, nirtlcularly In patent and copy
right cuses.
"Tho whole Intention has been," said
the chief Justice, "to bring the tak ng ot
testimony down to a more simplified and
Inexpensive melhod."
Trlnl by Court.
Another reform was said by the chief
Justice to be Illustrated by tho statement
that the new rules as a general thing
provide for trial by the court Instead ot
a reference of tho suit to a referee to
take testimony and report back to tho
court. Tho chief Justice said tho new
rules would make It possible for the ap
pellate court not to reverse su'ts merely
because of errors not prejudicial. Tim
rules will go Into effect February 1, 1913.
The new anti-injunction rule Incorpo-
rates Into practice several demands ot
labor leaders which they sought to have
recognized by the enactment of the so.
called Clayton anti-Injunction bill. The
new rule follows in a general way 'the
rules of the federal court In tho illnth
circuit, which comprises tho Pacific coast
states. ,
It'ule on Injunctions,
The new rule on injunction's provides:
"No preliminary Injunction shall 'bo
granted without notice Jo tho Opposite
party or shall any temporary restrain
ing order be granted without1" notlco to
pthe opposite party, unless 'it shall clearly
appear from specific facts shown by affi
davit or by the verified bill, that Imme
diate and Irreparable loss or dameg will
