After fighting superior numbers
of the Turks for three long days,
and beating them too at the cen
ter and the right, the Greeks gave
up "VVo to the enemy.

forces in Thessaly, doclares the

The Athens correspondent of
the Daily Telegraph says that
Greece does not possess the means
to continue the war, as even the
rifles ordered by the late Cabinet
have never been delivered. He
adds that Colonel Vassos will not
join the army in the field.
The AthenB correspondent of
the London Daily Chronicle says:
"The real and only cause of the
Greek retreat to Fharsalos was the
blunder of one who mistook the
retreat of the enemy for a forward
movement designed to outflank the
Greeks and therefore ordered a
hasty retreat. Crown Prince Con
stantino left Larissa because he
believed the exaggerated reports
of danger to his forces. It is a
fact, however, that on the evening
of the retreat, Edhem Pasha, des
pairing of breaking the Greek
lines, hud ordered his army to re
tiro to- Elasson, while the Sultan
had dispatched a special commis
sioner to the Greek Government.
The state of the Turkish army at
the moment was simply pitiful,
and terror reigned at Yildiz kiosk."
A London dispatch of May 10
says: Apart from the peace ne
gotiations the prinoipal feature of
the Eastern situation is that Tur
key is pressing reinforcements
forward and preparing for a rapid
advance. Unless the poweis suc
ceed in quickly arranging a settle
ment the Greeks are likely to suf
fer further disasters.
It is reported at Vienna that
Turkey's terms of peace with
Greece include the payment of an
indemnity ot $15,000,000, rear
rangement of the Greek frontier,
annulling treaties favoring the
Greeks, the cession of the Greek
fleet to Turkey and a settlement of
the Cretan question.

The powers, it is furthor stated,
have already agreed among them
selves upon the conditions of
peace. Germany's hesitation was
due to the faot that the Greek
Government in its circular to its
representatives at the courts of
the powers did not formally ad
here to Cretan autonomy, as de
sired by the powers.
Greece subsequently gave the
necessary assurances in this res
pect, and the German Minister at
Athens has been instructed to
actively support the efforts of the

that Senator Jones of Nevada
was going to voto with tho Re

was no possibility of changing
tho bill. They had no desire to
make any factious opposition and
when a motion was mado by the
Republicans toyeport the bill at
once it was carried.
The now bill is ladically differ

Tho structuro in which tho fair
was hold was a huge, but flimsy
building, out up into booths, de

to know how he fire started.There
was a1 puff of smoke, and in an in
stant tho great throng in tho
building became panio-Btrickeu.
Thero was a rush for thq exits.
Women of tho highest rank were

of others ignited. There was no

They wore burned, to death almost
in their tracks."
The firemen and policy have
taken out the bodies of many of
tho dead, and the work still pro

injured, and many of these will
die of their injuries.
