BULGARIA B' LEFT HUNDREDS
OF SOLDIERS ON THE FIELD
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.
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

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
"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
Fort Topyelu was another hard nut
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
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,

He added that while loss of life had
been very heavy, it was far smaller

"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

CONVICTS SAY THAT NITRO
GLYCERINE WAS SMUGGLED
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
