LONDON, Nov. 6.-The great powers of

In the vicinity of Tchorlu are preparing
to resume their advance on TchataIJa.
After four nights and four days of con
tinuous fighting around Lule-Burgas, the
Bulgarian soldiers wero given two days'
rest. This period expired today, and tho
troops by this time probably are again
on the move.
The Bulgarian army near Tchorlu is

A second Bulgarian army commanded
by General Kutintcheff Is marching along
the coast of tho sea of Mnrmora to
effect a junction with tho Bulgarian
army commanded by General Dlmltrleff
To get on the move quickly the Bul
garian troops must hnvo worked hard,
as they have thousands or wounded Turks
and Bulgarians to care for and have had
to burn or bury a large number of killed.
It Is officially stated In a dispatch from
Belgrade that the Servians, having anni
hilated the Turkish army In Macedonia,
have been ordered to assist the Bulgar
ians, Greeks and Montenegrins.
A large force of Servians has already
passed through Sofia on tho way to

British Attitude IJipUlnrd.
The British attitude in the Balkan
situation Is explained today In the House
of Commons by 8lr Edward Gray, the
foreign secretary, who was loudly cheered
when In reply to a question, he sold:
"No one In view, of tho result of tho
war tip to date will be disposed to dis

VIENNA, Nov. 5. Tho attitude of the
Austro-Hungarlan government In regard
to tho proposal of Premier l'olncure for
the adjustment of the Balkan situation
Is clearly stated today In the Neue Krelo
Prcsse, which says:
"Tho present military situation in tho
Balkans cannot be decisive for the sofu
flnn of tlm whole eastern question. Pre
mier Polncarc gives to the Balkan states
moro than they have themselves de
manded. "Tho proposal, which Is a most radical
expression of Pan-Slavlst tendencies, is
so one-sided that It can hardly find tho
approval of all tho powers and particu
larly of Austrla-Hungarj-, tho less so as
nothing Is said regarding the futuro of
Albania. This Is a question which Is of
the greatest lmportanco both to Austria
Hungary and Italy."
Tho anxiety of Austria-Hungary that
Sorvla shall not occupy Albania, and thus
seouro that outlet on the Adriatic tea
which the Servians are bo desirous of,
probably will provide a great bone of
contention. Servla has neen warned al
ready from Vienna that her armies have
gone far enough to the west. This warn
ing Is repeated today by the semi-official
Premdenblat After praising the Servian
soldiers for their humanity, the news
"Tho Servians having approached tlm
frontier of a territory occupied without
exception by Albanians It Is hoped and
expected now that Servla will avoid the
raising of those difficulties which tha
historic character of tho Albanians mako
Insurmountable. Tho most elementary
Justice demands that the principle of 'the
Balkans for tho Balkan people shall also
be to the advantage of the Albanians."

banian national commission, It Is said, is
