that Dennis A. Hayes of the slnss bot

Hayes Is Bitter.
"Vou are continually arguing after

elected as trade unionists: trade union

James B. Conroy then attacked the
Socialist party, and John H. Walker of

He brought a careful analysis of the

Mid he had the bulk of the delegates
behind him all Jho. way.
President Gompers began by saying.

by tho combined Montenegrin and Ser

"Wo are in favor of peace, but not

The Austro-Hungarian cabinet has sent
a sharp note to tho Servian government,
demanding immediate reply to all ques

Then followed a boisterous demonstra

long been known as prominent Social

the Socialists last Sunday. The gal
leries, which were well filled, arose In
excltoment, but having been previously
warned, did not take part in tho dem

up to his Bubjcct, now plainly a defonse

"Don't you know, you men of that parly
won't support a trades union working

Mitchell had given his consent ho would
have received the nomination as vlco

voted for him?"
"No, no," shouted a score.
"Of course you wouldn't." retorted tho
speaker. "When in Illinois it waa pro

military successes.
LONDON, Nov, 39. Bennett Burleigh,
war correspondent of tho Daily Tele
graph, under date of Monday, says-
I witnessed the bombardment of
the Adrlanople forls to the east
and north of tho city. Tho firing
was not heavy, but accurate. The
besiegers are not attempting to
break or destroy the city, but arc
devoting their attention solely to
the demolition of the Turkish forts.
The works in tho eastern and south
ern section of Adrlanople are eas
ily within reach of the Bulgarian gun
positions. From Hadomkeul to the
south tho artillery might level the
minarets and the mosquo of Selim
II.; but thus far not a corner of that
or other landmarks has been struck.
The Bulgarians are addressing
themselves to the Turkish works of
which many Interlines of trenches
and bastions have been constructed.
The bomb proofs aro legion. The
Turks artfully have concealed their
gun positions and most of their fire is
delivered from batteries securely hid
den far behind the front.
They must have worked hard and
skillfully to construct such a honey
combing of the terrain around Ad
rianople. But, irresistibly, the Bul
garians are advancing, always con
tracting their steel halter.
The Turks again attempted a sortie
today to the eastward. Fighting des
perately they strove to pass out by
tho Turkish cemetery' roadway, but
the Bulgarian gunners and infantry
beat them back into Adrlanople. They
left rows of dead. The Bulgarians
were able lo follow the enemy and
move their lines of attack still closer
to the ponderous masses of ram
parts, bastions and trenches.
SOFIA, 2sTov. 19. Bulgaria's condi
tions for agreeing to an armistice wore
transmitted to Conatantinoplp oarly
this morning. They were .accompanied
by Bulgaria's main conditions for the
conclusion of poace, the principal stip
ulation of -which permits Turkey to re
tain tho city of Constantinople and a
strip of coast territory in Europe.
It is understood that the terms of
tho allies for au armistice are moder
ate and that Turkey may save Con
stantinople if she accepts them.
Respecting Albania, it said in well
informed quarters that the Balkan
league probably will not object to that
country's remaining under the suz
crauity of tho Bullan, and that the
powers will acquiesce in this.

Nov. ll. There havo been two days of
severe fighting along the Tchalalja linos,
tho result of which Is undecided at the
moment of sending this dispatch. The
battle has proved ono of tho bloodiest
of tlu-. present war, both sides sustaining
fearful losses.
The battle began on Sunday, the Bul
garians opened n heavy bombardment of
the redoubts In Hadomkeul valley, which
form the most advanced position of the
Turkish works of derense. Tho fire was
especially severe at the Turkish left cen
ter. The Turks replied vigorously, their
battleships supporting the lire of the
land batteries. The artillery action was
followed by a furious Infantry apsault,
when several rcdouhts fell to the Bulgar
ians. Magniflcont courage was displayed by
tho Turks, officers qC the high rank ox

As a result of hl.s heroism and utter
disregard for his own lire, Mahmoud

To tho right of Hadomkeul the Bul
garians lost four guns, which fell Into
the hands of the Turkish commander.

WASHINGTON. Nov. in. The United
Slates has asked the Balkan allies and
Turkey to permit a party of American
army officers to join their forces and go
over the fields on which some of the
greatest battles of modern times have
been fought.
If permission Is given, members of the
special cavalry hoard now touring
Europe and the available militarv at
taches at London and Paris will be or
dered to the scene at once None of
the military observers assigned by for
eign nations to accompany the belliger
ent troops in tho Balkan war has been
allowed to get to the front so far, but
the war department desires to take ad
vantage of the probable Immediate con
clusion of hostilities to send experts over
the battlefields, while the atmosphere is
still charged with the breath of war.
Even after the forces have been with
drawn it Is said observers may study
with profit the methods employed to
handle the wounded, and the eil'ect upon
fortifications and trenches of the tremen
dous artillery fire which was the prin
cipal feature of this short and fierce war.
Tho cavalry bpard now in Europe Is
headed by General Edward McClcrnurd,
general staff: Colonel James Parker,
Eleventh cavalry; Major Jesse McCartcr,
general staff, and Lieutenant Colonel J
T. Dlckman, general staff.
The military attaches who would go
to the front are Lieutenant Colonel T.
Bcntley Mott, Paris, and Major George
O. Squler, London. Major Robert Alex
ander, an Infantry officer now detailed
with the Maryland militia, probably
would join tho party.
LONDON, Nov. 19. The first official
intimation sent out by the Bulgarian
government at Sofia that fighting be
tween the Bulgarian and Turkish armies
had taken place at Tchatalja arrived
here this afternoon, it consists merely
of the laconic sentence: "The day be
fore yesterday and yesterday the Bul
garian army engaged the Turks in bat
tle on the advanced points of the Tchat
alja lines with a view of preparing the
ground for Its further operations,"
This was Issued subsequently to the
announcement of the appointment of
plenipotentiaries to conduct peace nego
tiations with the Ottoman government.
Whether it means that "further opera
tions" will he proceeded with as soon aa
tho eighth hour of tho armistice agreed
to for the burial of the dead expires
there is nothing to shov..
The silence of Sofia a3 to the results
of the fighting is takon here to be an
Indication that General Savoff. the Bul
garian commandor-ln-chlcf, has discov
ered that the task or getting within the
Turkish lines of forts and intrenchmcnts
will prove a tremendous test of the stay
ing power of his troops.
It is thought probable that the. Bul
garians will call on their allies to bring
the forccB released by tho fall o-r Monas
tlr to their aid at Tchatalja.
Sixty per cent of the Ottoman troops

statement denouucea as unrounded the
reports of cruelly perpetrated by th Ser

declares, "arc spread for the purpose of
supporting the Albanian aspersions."
The statement continues:
"During the llghUng, measures which

raised the white flag In token or surren
