(By Cable to Thn Tribune 1
London, Nov. 18.?The armistice ifl
at an end, and the great deciding bat
' tie has begun. The only information
about It comes from Turkish sources,
and Is to the effect that the Bulgarians
have suffered heavily in an unsuccess?
ful effort to force the Tchataldja lines.
Nazim Pacha telegraphs that the
Bulgarians begun a gen-ral attack at
3 o'clock yesterday morning:. The
fighting lasted until ar. hour after **un
8Ct. The attack was mainly deliver? d
against the Turkish right an-l centre,
but it failed, it seems, and three Bul?
garian batteries were destroy. ?I.
In Constantinople there area great
excitement all day throughout th?- ? ity.
Many of the housetops were crowded
with people listening anxiously. A
correspondent who procured a convey?
ance and drove out In the dire ctton of
the firing for a distance at taren '
miles fell In with a number <>i ofltc. ra
and private soldiers coming from the
locality of the engagement, and on
questioning them ascertained that the
battle began with the opening of a
heavy Bulgarian artillery tire on the
Turkish POSltloaa on the heights
...round T?haialdja and Hademkeui.
The Bulgarians were advancing slowly
beyond the Tchataldja hills, hut were
heing subjsctsd to a henvy lire and
were losing tonsil ? .
Turks Hold Their Position.
The Turkish fourth army corps was
making a d? t?rmined effort to turn the
eiH-niv's right Hank.
The posiiion at midday was that t*8S
Turks were still holding their positions
at Hademkeui.
The lighting Is still going on. and

Bald at present, however. Is that the
Turks are evidently ranking a deter
mined stand.
According to another ?tory, the Bul?
garians have suffered a serious check
at Tchataldja, Turkish soldiers, it is
stated, have made prisoners eight bat?
talions of Bulgarian troop? and also
tak-n several guns and an enorm?jus
ipuantity of munitions of war.
New? of Victory Confirmed.
The Foreign Minister confirms the
news >>f victory, without, however.
?tying the exact number of prison?
The official m?*ssage. It will BS seen,
gives th*. latest news of ths bsttls,
but does not suggest that ?M lighting

If Nazim Path i can for ones he re?
lied on. his m-ssage proves that Tcha?
taldja di-serves ?s grant reputation a.*

probably did BOt expect to force it at
the Brat attack.
Further n?-ws la eagerly awaited, as
on the result of the buttk die term?

largely depend.
