I wltnesed to-day their attack on the Turkish positions at Buyuk-Chekemeje and the reply by the Turks with war ships and heavy guns. Rodosto has fallen and the force coming via Slllvri and Dogados has occupied the tango of hills. This extreme lefC flank of the Turkish position Is extremely strong by reason of the difficult nature of tho ground. A narrow causeway spanning the estuary of tho sea connects Buyuk Chekmeje with the western shore. "The main road to TchataldjA crosses this bridge. To the north Is the lake Itself, five miles long, and at one point three miles wide. A second causeway. Impractical for wheeled transport and guny. traverses the lake. Near th bridge already mentioned the Turks have sent four warships, the Hayred din, Hamtdle, MedJIdle and Mesoudle, to strengthen the left of their position. The Mesoudio has already assisted In the defence of Rodosto, bombarding the Bulgarian position. Tho warships arc anchored In the estuary.

"It Is Impossible for the Bulgarians to force a parage at this point. The lake Is not fordablo. and not suitable for pontoonlng. Any force attempt ing to force a passage of the bridge and causeway would Inevitably be de stroyed by the combined tire of the warships and the heavy artillery which tho Turkish commander baa on the hills. "A Turkish battleship bombarded the Bulgarian position throughout the day with tho object of beating down the fire of tho enemy.

Is Said, Either Fear Cholera or Anger of Powers. Special Cable Despatch ttt Taa 8rs Constant! Norut, Nov. 18. Everything to-night points to a speedy declaration of an armistice preliminary to final peace. Turkey seems to have made up her mind, In spite of any racial dis inclination to the contrary, to negotiate direct with the allies. She Is the more Inclined to do this because the Powers are by no means unanimous regarding a basis of mediation. It Is stated that this decision has been arrived at on advice of the Ambassadors of the Powers. The real truth of the situation Is yet not obtainable. Pome reports say liiat an armistice has already been arranged, other reports have It that merely ne gotiations are under way, hut on all sides It Is regarded as certain that peace Is within sight. The best Information obtainable seems to Justify the statement that peace ne gotiations have already been entered Into. M. PopofT, the first drawoman of tho Bulgarian Legation, who has been staying at the Russian Consulate here since the war began, stated to-night that M. Natchevltch, formerly Bulgarian Minister at Constantinople, arrived here to-night as Ambassador with full powers. From this, as well as from other evidences, tho Turkish capital believes that the Bulgarians have aban doned the idea of taking and entering the Moslem city, whether from foar of cholera or in deference to the advice of friendly councillors. "PEACE TALKS ALREADY ON." l'orrespandnta In Coaetantlneale Bar Negotiations Have lr. Special Coble Despatch to Taa Sew. London, Nov. 14. Here Is the gist of what the London correspondents In Constantinople are sending to this morning's newspapers. M. H. Donohoe, the correspondent of the Dally Chron icle, under date of November 12 by way of Kustcndje, Rumania, telegraphs: "Beaten and demoralized and with out hope of reorganization In time to make an effective stand against the united enemy, the Turks have recognized the futility of further resistance. Naxlm Pasha, the Turkish Minister of War, who Is at the front, has informed the Grand Vizier, Klamll Pasha, that the Turkish army Is both unwilling and unable to continue the fight and sug gests, as the only course, that Turkey make the best possible terms of peace with the allies by direct negotiations, opening with the Bulgarians. "Some Turkish advisers. In the capital, anxious to continue the defence of Tchataldja that would certainly result In disaster, make as a basis. of proposals for armistices that Turkey Is ready to abandon Tchataldja provided the Bul garians agree not to enter the capital. The Porte 1s prepared to make heavy sacrifices to ai-ert his, crowning humili ation, and If King Ferdinand Is not Joo Insistent peace Is In sight.'" The .correspondent ol the Dally Nrwt anil Leader, under yesterday's date. states:. 'At 4 o'clock this afternoon the di rector of the transport service Informed inquirers at tho War Office that a ces sation of hostilities had been arranged. Simultaneously almost another official summoned the chief contractors for sup- piles, including military boots, blankets. foodstuffs and foragej. and Informed them that hostilities would cease this evening. Existing contracts therefore were cancelled and no further military supplies would be forwarded to the front." "At the Russian Embassy thin after noon It was said that the only remain ing difficulty In the way of peace was the Bulgarian Insistence on a formal entry of troops Into Constantinople. This, the Ottoman Government points out, even with the Bulgarian assurance that she has no desire permanently to occupy tho town and that the Bulgar ians aro prepared to march In and out i again on the same day, It would be Im possible to grant while the Sultan Is In residence here. It Is also stated that the claims of the Greeks are ex- cesslve. "Mussurus Bey, the Minister of Posts. left yesterday for Sofia as one of the two Ottoman delegates to Bulgaria." The correspondent of the Dalit JfoU under yesterday's date states: "Nee-o. tlatlons for possible terms of peace have begun and will last several days. The nuiganans nisapprove of the Idea of an armistice, which they regard as an ex cuse for a delay." A news agency says: "Nazlm Pasha has beon Instructed to open communi cations with tho Bulgarian Generals and a parlrmentalrc has been des- patcneil to the Bulgarian headquarters with that end In view. "During the last forty-eight hours there t has been no fighting at Telia taldja, and It Is believed that this Is owing to the fact that the negotiation for' an armistice are on."
