Greek Squadron Accepts Sultan's Challenge
and Steams After Turkish Fleet
May Invade Saros.
(By Federal Wireless Telegraph.)
SEDIL BAHR, Dardanelles, December 7. (Special
to The Advertiser) A Greek squadron, composed of six
warships, was sighted off the entrance to the straits at
half-past three o'clock this afternoon. A number of vessels
of the Turkish Heel are concentrated in the Dardanelles
ready for action, and the straits are believed to be
thickly strewn with mines.
The Greek navy, apparently, has accepted the challenge
hurled by the Turks in the recent order to the Sultan's
warships to concentrate in the Dardanelles.' The
approach of both lleets to this historical place indicates
that the first important naval engagement of the Balkan
war may he expected in a short time.
The report was current a few days ago that the Greek
transports were on the way to Saros Avith Bulgarian
and Greek troops on board. "Whether this Greek squadron
formed the escort to these transports or is acting inde
pendently has not been ascertained. It is believed that
the Turks have concentrated two whole divisions of troops
with a considerable force of artillery from Asia Minor on
the Galliopoli peninsula, and it is expected that they will
resist any attempt on the part of the Greeks to land.

The rejection by Tromier Saionji of

According to tho plans of tho minister
