LONDON, November 15. Special to
Tlio Advertiser) The announcement
Hint llio Bulgarians lind reached tlio
vicinity of Killios lifts a corner of Unveil
which 1ms been baffling obscrvors
for Mime days regarding tlioit movements,
and shows that they havo

From Thcrapia n pood road leads to
within a few miles of Killios. Thoro
is a strongly defended fort r.t Killios,
lint tins was constructed to defend tho
place from attacks by sea and may bo
open to assault on tho land side.
Killios is only threo miles to the west
of Capo llniueli, at tho Black Sea entrance
to the Dosjriiorus, about six miles
north of Thcrapia.
Tin- dash of tlio Bulgarian troops
seems to demonstrate that General
tlio Unitarian
is not wholly depending on a
front attack on tho line of fortifications
nt Tclmtnlja. If a strong Bulgarian
force is already at Killios, on tho Hank
of the Turkish army, the fato of tho
Ottoman troops cannot, in military opinion,
remain long in doubt, if the Bulgarian
troops deride to take Constantinople
before a definite armistice is
agreed to.
That an early peace is assured is accepted
as a lorogono conclusion, but
whether it be brought about beforo or
after the surrender of Constantinople
is probably known only to King Ferdinand
of Bulgaria and his advlsois.

CONSTANTlNOI'IiK, Turkey, November
15. (Special to Tho Advertiser)
Tho cholera epidemic among
.tho Turkish troops holding tho lino ot
fortifications at Tclmtnlja in front of
Constantinople is rapidly becoming
worse. More than COO eases aro reported
daily, and the total number already
exceeds" C000.
Whntcvcr hopes tho Turks may havo
had of maintaining the line of defense
nt Tchatalju havo been dissipated by
this outbreak of cholera.
An eyewitness declares that ho saw
2G3 corpses buried in one very shallow
trench at llademkcui, the headquarters
of tho Turkish commander-in-chief, on
Tuesday. Tho bodies were dragged to
tho trench on hooks.
White cholera is undermining the
Turkish defenses. Jt is also constituting
a most formidable opposition to tho
Bulgarian advances, and it is gcnorally
believed hero that tho outbreak has
disposed of the quonllun of even a temporary
occupation of Constantinople by
tho Bulgarians.
It is sot thought likely that King
Ferdinand will risk tho lives of his soldiers
in this way, if ho can avoid it.
It is also stated on good authority that
cholera has already uppearod among
the Bulgarian troops.
Tho Bulgarian army on last Sunday
occupied the town of Dcrkos, nt tho
Black Sea end of tho Tchntalja lines,
nnd thus controls tho water supply of
Coustan tinople. This, however, hus not
5' ct been interfered with.
Tho apathy aud sullen resignation
with which tho Turks face the series
of overwhelming disasters deserves
It js true tho aevcro application of
martial law prevents tho public
of any criticism or Tesctitmont.
Tho great masses of Moslems, however,
nro inclined to bow to tho inevitable,
and accept without violent opposition
what they regard as tlio dictates of
Considering Armistice.

War With Machine Guns.
All tho machines guns of Schoficld
Barracks wero let looso yesterday when
a test was mado of them under what
was presumed to be actual war conditions.
All tho machine gun platoons
of tho post were united into ono war
strength organization under the command
of Lieutenant Jackson of
Infantry. Tho guns wero massed
and centered their fire largely ont
tho "V" of tho Kolokolo Pass through,
which a hostilo forco was presumed
ndvancing. Not a living.soul couHL
havo passed through that strategic
point, however, for the hail of lead that
swept from tho automatics was the-
mosit dcndly that has been fired against
theso since Unclo Sam established his
headquarters at Loilelma. Cardboard
targets wero placed to represent troops.
At 1S00 yards distance tho targets wero
mercilessly riddled. Tlio targets wero
placed ns a forco would naturally
take in inarching through tho defile.
Tho problem was tho presumption that
108 men of the enomy had crossed tho
pass into the Leilehua country and had
come within sight of tho machine guns
placed in a position north of tho post
hospital nt Sckofield Barracks. This
was a 1500-yard range. Each gun had
n separate cardboard target to fire at,
tho targets being placed at
intervals. Tho firing was found to bo
effective. Each machine gun fired two
hundred shots, each clip containing
thirty, making a total of 1200. This
number is presumed to have somo extremely
bad effects for the 108 "men"'
exposed to this fire.
General Macomb, department commander,
was an interested spectator,-with
Colonel McGunncglo, post commander,
n close observer The board
appointed by Colonel McGunnegle to-make
the machine gun test included
Lieutenant Jackson, Second Infantry,
president; Second Lieutenant
Fifth Cavalry, nnd Second Lieutenant
Mitchell, First Infantry.
All tho automatics in use yesterday
are tho type.
