ICHAJAUA BULGARIA B' LEFT HUNDREDS OF SOLDIERS ON THE FIELD AFTER BATTLE. Constantinople, (March 80.-TI'he Bul garians left 1,000' dead oil the field after the engagement yesterday west of Blyuk Chekmedye, according to an official report. Tlhe Turks also found 400 rifles and large quantities of en trenching tools. Since this engage mnent all has peen 'quiet along the Tehatalla lines, as well .ba at Bulair. The Turks believe the Bulgarians' offensive action at Tchatalja was in tended to prevent any flurkish demon stration..during.the attack on Adrian-. ople, and that the Bulgars will not attempt to pierce the lines, which re cently have been strengthened by the addition of heavy siege guns. The fall of <Adrainople has caused a feeling of the deepest dejection in all sections which has tended to increase the unpopularity of the government. A message from the British vice consul at Adrianople states that all the consuls and foreign communities are safe arid well. His report says that the Bulgarians took only 15,000 prisoners, the rest of the garrison be ing in hiding. The iporte has instructed the com mander at tcutari to permit the de parture of the civilian population. It is e'apectedt'hat the note of the pow e.s oa the subject of mediation 'will be presentel 'to the porte tomorrow. Fearful Battle. London, March 30.-A Kademkeui dispatch to the Daily Chronicle, de scribing the fight at Blyuk Chekmedye says that the Bulgarians hurled 20,000 men against the Turkish advancing position, and in the darkness carried it with 'bayonet, the Turks reti1ring on their main position. At daylight the Turks bombarded the captured position and prevented the Bulgarians from entrenching. Sub sequently the Turks delivered a coun ter-attack, 4,000 infantry storming the position with the bayonet. The Turks flung themselves on the Bulgarians and a desperate bayonet fight ensued. The Bulgarians were driven clown the slope on the opposite side. The Bulgarian attack on the wrdst wing near Tehatalja, also was re 'pulsed. Wounded Reach Belgrade. Belgrade, March 3Q,4-The first trainload of Wounded 5ervi'ans arrived here today from Adrianople. Their story shows that the fighting which preceded the capture of Adrianople was the most terrible of the war. The Turks fought with the courage of de spair, but the perseverance of the Serviarrs and the excellent leadership of the commanders resulted in their gaining the day. The press unfavorably discusses Russia's action in joining the other powers in presenting a note to Servia and Montenegro with regard to Scu tari and Albania. It wais hoped until the last that Russia would withhold her support of the note. One of the wounded officers said: "The siege was an unbroken chain of suffering for the besiegers which reached its climax in the bitter cold of January and February. The snow lay six feet deep and sentries died at their posts. The skin of every soldier was parched by the intense frost, while in the trenches the men's feet were cut by the sharp ice breaking every morning under their steps. They slept in maud and water, covered only by canvas. "On some days %dozens of men were frozen to death. There were snow plains for 20 miles around; no wood could 'be found, and even when it was brought, fires were forbidden for fear of betraying our position." All officers agreed on the terrible losses sustained in the final attack. The fourth battalion of the Ninth in fantry lost 30 per cent of its men, which was about the average for those regiments which attacked the import ant forts, The Turkish guns kept up a terrific fire. The Servians made three attempts against Papastepe be fore taking that position, and then succeeded ontly at a tremendous cost of life, due to the Turklisy machine guns, Fort Topyelu was another hard nut to crack, When within 500 yards, the Servians, who were accomnpanied 'by a Bulgarian regiment, met a terrible fire, accom panied by the explosion of mines, The Bulgars retired, leaving the Servians alone, The Servians again advanceri under cover of darkness, creeping like cats and preceded by hand bomb throwers. The Turks did not discover them until the bomb-throwers were upon the trenches, The Bulgarians came ui' under command of a sergeant, having lost all their commanding officers, but again retired. After the fort h6, been taken, the ?urks made counter-attacks. and, with their machine gunts, inflicted heavy losses on the invading force, Turks Bombarded. Cettinje, March a0.--8ince yester day the Montenegrin artillery on the main tront before Scutari has been developing great activity. The Tur - kish positions In the plain before the town have been bombarded heavily and the Turks have been driven from their entrenchments near the river Kir by. the persistent artillery fir'e.

Col rado's ttgait OYERNMENT HELP IS NOT NEEDED LONGER OFFICIALS IN CHARGEOF FLQOD RELIEF HAVE SITUATION IN CONTROL: Washington, March 30.-"All places affected by the flood in such a way as to need help are, receiving it and it is not -believed that suffering exists any where now from want of food or shel ter," was the report today to Adjutant General Andrews from Major General Wood, chief-of-staff, who with Secre tary of War Garrison is directing re lief operations in the flooded district. He added that while loss of life had been very heavy, it was far smaller than first reports indicated. "Do not send any more government supplies," said the report, "unless the I department's representatives on the ground request them. Any supplies available should be held for possible needs further down the river. Major Normoyle has received the great bulk of supplies sent to Columbus and is busily engaged in shipping them out to points where required." iMajor Normoyle himself reported that the greatest need for rations now appeared to be in the LMuskingum val ley. +Major Gaujot has been sent to Par leersburg, W. Va., with authority to hire steamers and purchase supplies for that territory. Relief funds received by the Red Cross are nearing the half million mark. Checks in today's mail, includ ing $16,000 from Boston, $10,000 from Hartford, Conn., and $25,000 from a brewing company, bringing the total already in up to $391,000. Ernest P. Bticknell, national director of the American Red Cross, reported from Columbus, Ohio, that he had es tablished headquarters in the state house and would work with the state flood committee as well as with the army. He said he had held an ex tremely satisfactory conference with Governor Cox and others in author ity. Superintendent Kimball of the life saving service ordered the life-saving crew from Lerain, Ohio, which had re turned from Delaware, Ohio, to pro ceed at once to Covington, Ky., to render what aid could be given flood. sufferers in that vicinity. ' PRISONERS BURIED EXPLOSIVES( CONVICTS SAY THAT NITRO GLYCERINE WAS SMUGGLED INTO PENITENTIARY. San Quentin, Cal., March 30.-In' the course of his testimony before the prison inquiry committee of the legis lature, one of the convict-witnesses declared today that a con of nitro glycerin is now buried in the prison yard. It was to have been used, the. convict said, in the bredd riot of sev eral months ago. Plans for a wholesale escape on the occasion of the riot failed, said the witness, because the signal for the uprising was given prematurely. The ringleaders, he went on to explain, had arranged to smuggle into the prison a large quantity of dynamite and nitro glycerin. The rank and file of the. plotters understood that this had been received and was ready for use. So the signal-the words "pass the vinegar"-was given, but the jail de lit'ery did not materialize. Balked in their first effort, it was decided to try again the next day. But the ringleaders still had failed to get the, explosives into the prison. The convict said the plotting had been go ing on for a period of six months. Warden Hoyle said tonight he he lieved that when the witness told of a can of buried nitro-glycerin 'he had in mind a small bottle. containing it, which was found in the yard some time ego. The warden said, however, he would have the witness show defl nitely where he thinks the can of ex plosive is buried. About 15 convicts gave testimony before the committee today. The question of cruelty was left for the time. Those questioned today made no especial complaint of the quality of the food provided. The earlier charges of harshness and oppre.9sion against Captain of the Yard 'Randolph wereesaid to be untrue by today's wit The inquiry will be resumed at the prison 'Monday. CREST DUE TUESDAY.
