though details from that point arc lack

it seemed for a time :is though the bat
tle had ended, but again the booming
was heard and the movement of troops
could be observed not far from tho very
Batos to the capital. A detachment of
sovoral thousands from the TchataIJa

had been held in reserve near tho city.
Tho refugees beblnd the lines began
breaking camp early lu tho day and
moved hack toward Constantinople The
Greek villagers, who heretofore had re
mained admirably indilfersnt to events,
prepared to desert their home.
Deadly Tension.
While calm prevailed, there was a
deadly tension In the knowledge that the
fate of the capital, of the Turkish army
and of those who waited anxiously iu
Constantinople, was at: stake. Several
members of the legations and other for
eign residents witnessed the artillery
duel, which they describe as magnificent.

plains towards the north, the Hashes of

Within the city e.vory military precau

various points and patrols guarded the
streets. Tho embassadors held a meeting
at tlic foreign ministry with the com
manders of the Ottoman gendarmerie and
advised for the safely of foreigners.

urged that steps" be laken to prevent the
armies now facing each other at Tchatalja
from entering the capital, owing to the
cholera epidemic. Tho resolutions to that
effect were proposed by the British dele

a meeting of the commanders tomorrow
Subsequent to the arrival of the vessels
various zones were assigned to the dif

which thus will nol conflno themselves
to gunrdlng tho embassies and foreign
charitable and education institutions. The

were confined. Three hundred Turks

Scenes of Horror.
Yesterday a foreign doctor, assisting in
the military hospital, discovered by ac
cident that fivo soldiers dying of cholera
had been placed among the wounded.
He ordered their removal. Bearers took
up the dying men on their shoulders, but
their condition was such that the doc
tor ordered the bearers to drop them.
This they did and the unfortunates
were left lying in the mud for an hour,
groaning and in convulsions, before they
were removed on stretchers.
An extraordinary feature of conditions
behind the Turkish lines at Tchatalja Is

Several foreign officers who visited the
lines Thursday and Friday report the
situation hopeless. The trenches arc
only partly dug. A huge pile of barbed

unable to work because cholera-infected

be contaminated, involving Constanti

Murder of Countess.
The murder of Mrs. Rlttcr. as Gibson
called her-, or the Countess Szabo. as
she was known to a few Intimates, fol
lowed this chain of mysterious deaths
and led to the lawyer's arrest.
Gibson held letters of administration
for the countess's estate and also a
waiver of citation' purporting to have
been signed by the mother of the coun
tess. These letters, together with the waiv
er. Gibson filed with the surrogate's
court In New York a day or two after
the death of the woman.
No comment, up to that time, was
made. Everything appeared to be regu
lar. No suspicion had been voiced. The
lawyer had been picked ud tn the lake
clinging for his life to Hie overturned
boat. The body of his companion had
boen recovered and burled. Sho was
thought to be the victim of an acci
dentno one was to blame. The law
yer was sa rc,
But the countess had five brothers
and three slstere in Austria. They wrote
to the Austro-Hungarian consul. Dr.
Fritz Flscherouer, asking for particu
lars of their sister's death, accompanied
with a claim on her estate.
The consul replied that the countess
had been drowned, while boating with a
lawyer, who possessed letters of admin
istration together with a wafvor of cita
tion slgnod bv their mother.
Choked to Death.
They replied that their mother had
been dead for two years.
"With this as a basis to work on Dr. ,
Flscherauer employed an attorney. He
caused tho body of the countess to be.
orc'numcd and another examination made.
The result was that Dr. Otto IT. Schullz,
found that tho woman had not been
drowned, but had chocked to death as
the result of what he thought was n
sovorc blow dealt across the throat,
Gibson's success in this ficht for his
life will depend upon his ability to prove
that the woman who was drowned in
the Greenwood lake is not the same
woman who is claimed as a sister bv the
five men and three women living in
A brother of the Countess Szabo came
to America at the time her body was
exhumed. After a careful examination
he declared the body to be that of his
The contention of the prosecution It?
that Gibson took the countess ooating,
with the exnreSB nurnnse .,of kllllner lur
and that he accomplished it by ptrlkinh
her a "sort of .iltu jitau blow across the
throat which effectually stonncd her
breathing, threw her into the lake, can
sized his boat and then began to cry
for help.
No Eye-Witnesses.
Tt Is a remarkable fact that there is
nol a single eye-witness to the accident
although the lake was filled with al;
sorts of eraft at the time. It is believed
that Gibson rowed around the point of
Roosevelt Island, where he was hidden
from view, and then carried out his
murderous purpose.
Tils defense will be that the boat was
overturned while he and the woman
were exchanging scats, the former wish
ing to tako the oars. He claims that
he did all in his nowr to save tlie wo
man and nearly lost his own life in the
