Constantinople, Nov. 5 (Tuesday), 6 p. m. The situation in Con
stantinople grows graver with eveo' hour. Hostility toward Europeans
is on the increase and shown more openly and arrogantly than ever.
The lower classes express their fierce animosity without any attempt
at concealment.
Some members of the various workmen's guilds hae openly
boasted that they liave taken a sacred vow to massacre every Christian
in Constantinople should the Bulgarians enter the city or should Rou
mania be severed from Turkey as a result o"f the war.
Fanatics arc hourly seen swearing to" take terrirjf vengeance on
the infidel. The Turkish theological students, always a'dangerous ele
ment, arc now preaching violence to the mobs in out-of-the-way

Iindon. Not. 4 The last ait in the
sreat war drama of the Balkans, the
entry of the Bulgarians into Constanti
nople. Is expected to be Trttnesfcedwlth
in possibly two dajs. The anfeeal of
the thoroughly wMpped Ottoman gov
ernment for armistice has been denied
b the powers, and to-night Nazlm Pasha,
the Turkish commander-in-chief, is mak
ing his last staftd againt the victorious
Bulgarians at the lines of Tchatalja.
twentj-JHe miles outside Constantinople.
Meanwhile, within the conBnea of the
Turkish capital. Christians and Moham
medans alike are existing In a state of
fear, the former believing that the
fanatical Turk, in the desperation of
defeat, will turn upon them with the
knife and the latter living in Mread of
the victorious hosts as they approach
the city.
It was apparent to-day to practically
all the leading diplomats of Europe,
and some of the governments so stated
durlnc the da. that Turke's proposal
for a cessation of hostilities would of
fend the Balkan lctors. Other govern
ments took the position that it would
be an Infringement of International law
for the moment, and so Turkey's rt-
quest was not received with favor and
the war must go on. It appears to be
only a question of one more battle be
tween the crippled Turks and the vic
torious Invaders, let Nailm Pasha, confident-
of his ability to hold the lines
for the Turks at Tchatalja. Is determined
to fight to the end. while the Balkan
allies, who have given it out flatly that
they will talk peace terms only witn tne
Sultan, are determined to wipe out the
last remaining estige or the Turkish
Balgmrlaas Beglm Attack.
That there has been no cessation of
hostilities owing to the request for me
diation la evidenced by the receipt of
-a. dispatch to-night recounting another
reverse for the Turks. In an engage
ment between the. Bulgarians and the
Turkish army which is occupying the
line from Tchorlu to Istrandja the Turks
were repulsed on their eastern flank
with heavy losses. t
The Bulgarians pushed operations all
day against the last line of the defense
in front of Constantinople.. This line of
forts crosses the Turkish southern pen
insula from Kara Burun. on the Black
Sea, through Tchatalja to Sillvrl. on the
Sea of Marmora. News of the reopening
of the fighting along the entire line is
hourly expected, and th capture 'of
Constantinople is looked for before the
Turks have had time ,to reorganize their
forces after their long succession of dis
astrous defeats. The outer suburbs of
the Turkish capital are directly behind
the Tchatalja fortifications.
Vienna has a report that the fighting

night that the vote at to-morrow a elec
tion for President will exceed all pre
vious record.- With fair weather prom-
lsed for practically the entire country
and the factions using every means to
get oat' their supporters, an enormous
poll Is assured. Campaign leaders admit
ted to-night that they had never worked
quite so -bard as they have for the past
six months to get out the vote, but their
efforts are being rewarded, they said.
by telegrams to-night which Insure that
ivery district manager has done his
duty well.
A matter being much discussed to
night Is the extent to which the Social
1st ticket headed by Debs and Seldel will
cut Into the vote of the three leading
candidates. The Progressive leaders as
sert that the Socialists will poll a heavy
vote, drawing largely from the Republi
can and Democratic ranks.
Relaras Will Be Late.
Although the polls In several States
close as early- as 4 o'clock and In some
districts at 3 In the afternoon, the bal
loting places In most the States will re
main openfronr 7 a."m. to 5 p. m. Pull
reports will not beavailable from any
section until after 5 o'clock In the after
noon and comprehensive returns from
many States or Congressional districts
will probably not be ready before 9 or
10, Eastern time. The first report on the
balloting from any place is expected to
come from the very small voting pre
cincts in Massachusetts aa early as 3-J
in the afternoon.
The Presidential candidates have pre-
pared'to receive returns from State and
local leaders In all sections of the coun
try. Telegraph wires were Installed at
