As the trains filled with wounded '
came In long slow lines Into thU i
capital the realization of the fierce-1
ness of the fighting that has been going i
on In the valleys stretching from Adrla
noplc to tho Ottoman cupltnl Is seizing
hold of the people here. The most of
the wounded are literally hacked to
pieces with knife and I nyonct and terri
bly mutilated by the soft nosed bullets
of the Turk.

ment after regiment of Bulgarians
plunged Into the smoke of he Turkish
cannon, setting nsldo the rifle for the
knife and fought like cavemen with
hands and teeth nnd the naked steel.
In the long tliys of fighting there
was no chance for rest and many of
the Turkish regiments were flung at tho
tough little Uulgars In a starving con
dition. One regiment of mutineers fell
on a correspondent's car and corre

hoot them down with revolvers.
At Lule-Burgus when Nazlm Pasha
saw his untrained Asiatic levies run
before the liulgars he sent frantically
time and again for reenforcement.
Several tralnloads of troops came up.
Most of the men were unarmed: the
others were wounded who had been
atarted back, but were forced to turn
around and fight again.
This Is but one of n hundred shame
ful examples of Turkey's unprepared
ness. Witnesses say that the regular
Turkish regiments, whose bearts had
not been gripped by the panic of their
fellows, stood up nnd fought like men
until they were annihilated. The spec
tators agree that the Turkish officers
did all they could ti stop the panic that
came at the sight of the first liulgar.
Many of the officers shot themselves,
' unable to bear the .sight of the famed
warriors of the Hultan running like
sheep before men In civilian clothes,

Appeal Will Prolong Litigation

regarding titles to lands on the Grnvesend
Hnv sido of Conev Island, including Sea

Hay is not n landlocked liarbor, but is of Mrs- c- K- MacKaddcn. wife of the

Dutch and English Governors by patent
to tho town of Gravesend and that the
city became the successor in titlo when
tho town of GravoFcnd became a port
of tho city through consolidation.
Tho present action camo up more than
six months ago through an order by Dock
CqnimiBsioner Totnkins stopping Edward
h. Sommervillo and IjouIs Gottlieb from
bulkhcading land claimed by them along
Gravesend Day, so as to fill in all the
land back of tho bulkhead and develop
it. Injunction proceedings were started
by Sommervillo nnd Gottlieb to restrain
Commissioner Tomkins from interference
it developed on tho trial that the real
question at issuo was whether the land
under water in Gravosend Hay belonged
to tho State of Now York and its suc
cessors in title or to tho city of New York
as tho successor in titlo to the old town
of Gravesend.
Justice Crano says that, although the
city has Ireretpfore treated this prop
erty ns neionging to persons deriving
titlo from the State and has taxed it,
this fact does not uct as an estoppel and
prevent the city making claim to owner
ship in this proceeding.
An appeal is to bo taken, nnd it Is not
expected that the litigation will bo ended
within a year.

Mrs. Mnrshnll Consents to Spend
Sunday in Psychopath ic
Ward of Bellcvuc.
He Told Police She Had Forced

of Other Women.
Mrs. Bertlo Archer Marshall, whose
homo address is given as 204 West Ninety-
second street, is spending Sunday in the
psychopathlo ward of Bellevue, although
the physicians In charge declare she lias
ovcry appearance of sanity. She Is there
by consent, and If no symptom of mental
(listurlmnco dovelops by Monday they
will lie unable to entertain her any longer.
Mrs. Marshall's trip to Bellevue was
originally engineered by her husband,
A. A. Marshall, who Is an officer of the
International Service Corporation which
has offices at 141 West Thlrty-slrth street.
After it was begun tho wife expressed
her determination to go through with It.
Policeman Garvey of the East Thirtieth
street station was summoned to the
office of the corporation yesterday after
noon by an office boy, who said a man
wanted a woman taken out of the place.
Arriving there he found the man and
woman talking quietly together. The
mr.n announced that ho' wanted thb
woman's sanity tested at once.
".She is my wife." he said. 'Bhe a so
jculous that sho makes It imposaib'ta for
mo to remain long in one place. She
lir.H driven mo out of Washington and
Philadelphia and I have been compelled
to move five times in New "York city.
She thinks every woman is after me or
1 am ufter every woman."
Garvey told tho man that he -could .not
arrest the woman. There was nothing
the matter with her so far as the police
man could see. He finally suggested
that if Marshall wanted to take his wife
to tho station he, the policeman, would
go along.
TliO'Woman consented after some hesi
tation nnd ho party appeared before
Lieut. Preston. Preston said he could not
see anything wrong .but agreed to call a
llellevue surgeon. Dr. Stillman came and
said he could see nothing wrong, and then
tho woman talked.
Sho was tho widow of a man named
Godnoy in Washington, she said, when
she married Marshall in 1800. At that
time she had between S20.000 and 125.000.
1 That money was all gone now and she
described now it went. Her nusoana,
she declared, was making a good salary,
but was giving her so little money that
she was compelled to work as a dress
maker. All she wanted, she. said, was
sufficient to support her. Sho then an
nounced that she would bring counter
charges. An effort was made to find
out what sue meant from Mr. Marshall,
but he had gono away.
Dr. Stillman said the only way Mrs.
Marshall could be taken to ftclloviio was
by consent, and the woman said s.ho had
no objection to having her sanity tested.
Sho was examined after her arrival nnd
no one could find anything more wrong
with her than nervousness) duo to ex
