out that the Ottoman army will doubtless
resist to the last In guarding- tho sate
way to Constantinople.
While ttic fate of war lias been un
favorable to the Turklsli arms on the
plains of Thrace. It Is aruec! that tbe
Turkish noldlcrs cannot reproach them
selves thai the result was due to failure
on their pari to uphold their military
traditions on valor and determination,
which are thr.Ir proudest inheritance.
Tho Turk, It Is said, were defeated
not because the Bulgarian Is a better or
braver man, but bocaime he Is more
HclentUlcnllv trained and better anncd,
especially In the matter of artillery.
In thlH connection military men here
ar recalling the words of a distinguished
officer, who said:
"While the Turkish aoldler Is learning
the nooHe step, the Bulgarian Is learning
to shoot fltralght. nnd. what Is more Im
portant, to control his fire."
In some re.Hpcct.s the , fishtlnK: has
proved a test of I-Vench apalnat German
method and of French artillery against
German artillery. All acounts atjree thut
tho Bulgarian uns completely outranked
those of the Turky, besides being more
rapid and accurate.
Wounded officers say that . what dls
compoued the men to the ?rcatst degree
was that thev could not nee the enemy
while shrapnel shells were bursting about
them with the deadliest effect. The
Turkish soldier? fought, they say. with
splendid courage.
Tho casualties were enormous. Offi
cial sources admit that 15.000 wounded
were left on tho battlefield.
VIENNA. N'ov (.. Everv effort I3 be
ing strained by the Bulgarian command
ers to hasten the fall of Adrjanople, ac
cording to Lieutenant Wagner, telegraph
ing to the Rolchspost today from tho Bul
garian headquarters.
The desire of the. Bulgarians Is to re
lease their siege guns for eventual use
on the Turkish lines at Tchntalja.
The pow'oi' of resistance of the TurKS
at Adrlanoplc. Lieutenant Wagner sayp,
diminishes day by day. The Turks reply
weakly and at Intcrvnls to the heavy lire
of tho Bulgarian slego artillery. Tho
Turkish works on the northwest front of
the eity havo suffered heavily, and since
thp last sreat sortie by the garrison In
the direction of Moras the activity of the
Turkish troops appears to have dimin
ished considerably.
The Inek of provisions In the invested
elly Is reported alrcadv to have become
extremely serious.
The Imminent fall of Adiinnoplc Is ro
aarded in Vienna as an event of the
greatest military and political Importance,
both as evidence that even the lino of
forts at Tchatalja cannot save Constanti
nople and a." enabling the whole Bul
garian armv to concentrate for nn at
tack on the Turkish capital.
CONSTANTINOPLE. Nov. A (0 p. m.)
Non of the powers has yet replied to
the porte's request for mediation. The
belief is held here that King Ferdinand
will not be sorry to accept European In
vention, an it Is considered that, after Its
tremendous sacrifices, the Bulgarian
army must be near exhausted.
Abdullah Pasha, commander Of the
Turkish eastern army. Is still at Tehcr
keKSkcul nnd at upon today a Turkish
detachment destroyed an Important rail
way bridge nt Tchorlu.
It now becomes oloar that tho deficient
commissariat was largely rc,sponsblo for
the Turkish reverses. Turkish plans
aimed at encircling1 tfie "Bulgarian' forces
by an advance on the right wing. Tin?
Bulgarian general concentrated his ef
forts oil the Turkish center at Serai and
the left wing along the railway The
Turkish army was meeting with much
success, but the commlKnrInl broke
down completely, owing partly to bad
weather which made the load difficult
and preventing landing operations at the
Turkish base. Midla.
As a consequence, Mnhmoud Mukhtar
Pasha, comma tiding Lbc right, was com
pelled to Hticrlflco the advantage gained
because his troops were without food
throughout the day.
All preparations have been completed
frr the holr-apparent to proceed to tho
Turkish headquarter!:, accompanied bv
Ghnzi Ahamed Mukhtar Pashn, tho late
grand vl7.letv but they havo not started.
It Is asserted that the sultan himself
was deceived by Nazlm Pasha's opti
mistic reports and only realized the true
.situation when an English cruiser
brought Khf latest news, which was con
veyed to the porte by the British em
bansador. The porto then asked the
powers to intervene.
The difficulty in maintaining order Is
increasing. It Is said that a mob went
to the war office at Stnmbuul and asked
for weapons with which to attack the
Christians, and thia was the reason
ICIkamll Pasha asked the embassadors to
have warships at hand.

Death Takes Toll Hourly.
"Jnsatiable death makes its toll
hourly of the battered and tattered hu
man wrecks once soldiers but all of
whose feeble energies arc now devoted,
nol to fighting but to fleeing for their
very lives over the wide Thracian
plains. Up the steep rocky slopes of
Tchorlu to its wide plateau, down Iho
other side across the stony valley
which leads toward Tchat.al.ia, the
broken army is crnwliug. It can no
longer run. Days and nights of awful
suffering have reduced its gait to a j
more totter. The track of tho fleeing
Turkish army is paved with dead and
dying and, as an aerial rear guard,!
groat flocks of black crows which caw
a hideous requiem, ever hover noar,
marking down some weary soldier stag
gering to his ond. Prairie dogs of tho
vulpine breed, scenting tho carrion,

howling resounding throughout the long
watches of the nicbt. Thev and tho1
crows arc tho only grave diggers for

"On the way from Tchorlu, while- it
was still daylight, 1 came across the
half-devoured bodies of many horses
which could not have succumbed more
than two hours bcfoio J came along. I

LONDON. Nov. 4. The latest proposal;
to the powers made by the French pre
mier. Raymond Polncare. is as follows:
"First Recognition by the powers of
political and administrative changes In
the territory occupied by the troops of
the allies.
"SecondRetention of the sultan's sov

"Third The summoning o.f a Eu

BERLIN. Nov. I. The report is In cir

premature and that Ihe Turkish military
authorities Instead of appealing for in
tervention Intend to resist tho Bul
garians at tho lines of Tchatalja.
Tho reply of Germany. Austria and
Italy to Premier Polncare's proposal has
Just been dispatched. It rejects tho pro
posed declaration of "disinterestedness."
It Is seml-officially declared that the
German warships arc being sent to Turk

the Turkish government to prevent mas

Atrocities of Turks.
VTENN'A. Nov. 4. The correspon
dent of tbe Reirbspopt with tho Bul
garian arm- savs the retreating Turks
committed horrible savageries. All the.
villages were burned and Christians
butchered. Many women wero muti
lated. The Turkish army, says tho
correspondent, is retreating in two lines
through Tchorlu and wept of Serai.
Supported bv the arrival of two Turk
ish divisions west of Iptrnndia nnd at

in part. Yot. it is doubtful whether
any considerable portion will succeed
in "arriving behind the Tchatalja lines.

bulk of whom, therefore, passed the
bitter nigbl without food or drink or.
cover of any kind. Of rice, which is
the--h tuple diet of the Ottoman soldiers,
not a grain was available.
"Bv noon on 1'riduy eft or t? had beoit
made" to obtain supplies ot Tood Ironi
Constantinople,, but. bct'oro many tram
loads bad come through, tho Bulgarian
guns had intervened and actually
threatened tho town. Tho enemy had
throughout this brief campaign fhown
an astonishing celerity in pursuit, his
advance guard never being far from the
rear of tho retreating army.
"Early on Friday morning the Bul
garian army pushed on, bci; seen now
011 both tho oast and west hides of t ic
railway. Bulgarian scouts overran the
country, cutting off stragglers and cap
turing tho few remaining wagons which
had boon abandoned in the last phase
of the flight toward Tchorlu. The wear
ied Abdullah Pasha, with the majority
of his staff missing, was confronted
with the grave problem Friday morn
ing. Compelled to Move On.
The safety of the survivors of hia
shattered armv was now threatened by
the pursuing" Bulgarians'. To remain
would only bo to court disaster and
lead inevitably to the remnant ot Jus
armv being surrounded and either killed
or captured. Even to a commander
with a large force at his disposal, in
the pink of fighting condition and plen
tifully supplied with ammunition.
Tchorlu is strategically weak. It could
be turned without diflicnlty, cither from
tho southwest or tho northeast. A big
Bulgarian movement was already re
ported. Tt would probably prove to bo
the force that hurried Mukhtar Pasha
in his desperate retreat and was said
to be descending the .Tivalia valley
west of the Tstranza range. Their ob
jective could only be the railway line
at Corkcsij. With this point in the

Abdullah Pasha's army.
"It did not take the Turkish general
long to make up his mind. Once more
an immenso general retreat was or
dered. The remnants (if the army di
rected their steps toward the en
trenched lines nt Tchatalja, where il
was hoped a final stand might be made.
These defenses, from which so much is
expected, may very likely, when sub
jected to strain and stress of war. prove
but a snare and a delusion.
Supplies Available.
"Tchatalja is being rapidly provi
sioned and furnished with munitions of
war. There has always been an abun
dance of war material and army sup
plies available in Constantinople, but
as the Turks do not possess a properly
equipped intelligence- department, these
supplies and munitions have reposed. un
disturbed in the stores of the capital.
That it was no one's business lo send
them to tho front is the one reason why
Turkey has paid the penalty of disas
trous defeat and the rout, ot her army.
Once through the lines of Tchatalja,
nothing could stop the army of King
Ferdinand unless the powers intervene,
from making a dramatic ontry into tho
"When in 1S7S the victorious legions
of the czar of Russia descended the Bal
kan passes and swept across tho plains
from Thrnee, driving the demoralized
Turks before them, Lord licaconsfiold 's
imperious gesture, which was an em
phatic lb rent of war, brought tho Rus
sians to a dead stop at. I he very gales
of Constantinople. 111 order to respect
the susceptibilities of the Moslems and
to spare the Turks humiliation, the Rus
sians halted at Sau Stcfano and did not
enter Ihe capital.
End Not Foreseen.
"It is impossible to l'orcsce what will
follow the joyous entry of Christian
troops into the stronghold of Islam.
The vor' suggestion of such a catastro
phe has been snflicienl. to infuse with
fresh energy the usually indolent Turk.
Napoleon, it is known, cherished the
ambition of tearing down the crescent
emblem in Islam and planting the cross
again on the doors of St. Sophia. The
lion of Bulgarians fired with the same
ambition and this lends additional .sig
nificance to his fiery worded proclama
tion that "This is a war of the cross
against the crescent.'
"Tho state of tho Turkish arnry in
the last stage of rctrca,t was pitiable 1
iu the extreme. Hundreds of men with
the soles torn off their boots walked.
Otic is compelled to jay a tribute of
rospoct and admiration to their sto
icism. Such fortitude in the circum
stances may well excite the envy of
European soldiers and the soldiers of
all nations.
"Tho 01 toman soldier, as I have seen
him during those awful days of lortiiri:,
suffering, starvation and defeat, has
olways faced death cheerfully an'd un
complainingly. He went for days with
out food.. No murmur of reproach
crossed his lips and when his weary
and benumbed legs longer refused to
jsupport his body he lay down and faced
death complacently as though death
from starvation were Vis every day
duty. No fear of his approaching end
could be seen on his pfiin rnekod fea
tures. Calmly Awaited Death.
"On the firing line he stood, seldom
caring to take cover. With folded
arms, his cartridge pouch empty and
his rifle useless, ho took the fearful
punishment moled out to him without
wincing ami meeting death with a
calm and composure that 'wore remark
able. "The allies maj' have beaten the
Turkish army, hut they ha,vo not cou
qurred tho Turkish soldier. Ho, has all
the docility of ;i child, yot his cour
age is unsurpassed. Properly led and
properly fed and treated like an or
dinary human being, he would go any
where and do anything. Ho would
easily conquer fresh worlds for Is
lam. "It is comparatively ea6v to write
panegyrics about the clan of soldiors
in the flush of victory, but what of
those who died during Abdullah's ter
rible retreat; What of those whoso
cup of bitterness overflowed with gall
ing humiliation?
"I witnessed their uffcrings and
hharcd their privations in defeat. We
were companions in misfortune. They
arc dead. I live. Yet. whilo I was
penned up with Abdullah's living
army I am certain nol one of his' sol

WASHINGTON, Nov. The death
of representative George If. Uttor of
Rhode Island apparently breaks the
deadlock in which the house -of repre

called to elect a president.
Up to tho time ot -Mr. Liter s death
the houso was equally divided. Rep

Democratic, twenty-two Uopubliean and
the delegates of four remaining states
wero equally divided between Republi

JMiodo Island was one of the states
in which the delegation was equally di

place be not filled by a Republican to
