KUSTENDJL', Rumania, Nov. 1. (By wireless from Constanti

Nazim Pasha opens the way to Constantinople for the Bulgarian Troops.
This will, tn the opinion of diplomatic circles, lead to a situation wfalcfa
will almost inevitably bring about European complications.
The most immediate danger, however, concern- the position of
this city itself. The Sultan's advisers are in terror ol a massacre apt
only of Christians, but of the entire non-combatant population of Coji
stantinople and the looting of the city. If the Ottoman troops now in
flight after the disastrous rout by the Bulgarians are driven back into
the city, it is pointed out, they will be in such a temper that the utmost
violence may be expected from them. Their orlicers seem already to
