ENGLAND ASKED TO STOP OUTRAGES Br Srdal CUiuMKliat at the Undon Oirssiels. Constantinople, Nov. 8. Saloniki has at length been occupied by Greek troops. Their approach was attended by awful scenes. Before they entered the city all the elements of disorder broke loose. A ter rible massacre of the non-Moslem population took place, and shooting and looting were general. When the Greeks took possession of the city they imprisoned all the Pasha's officials and the Turkish officers. The Turks now in captivity in Saloniki number 27,000 men. ' GREEKS CROSS RIVER. The Greek fleet is transporting men to the left bank of the River Maritza. This move has a twofold purpose: It enables the Greeks to fall on the fortifications of the Dardanelles by landing forces at Gal lipoli, and also opens for the fleet free passage to Constantinople. The Greek plan of campaign is to join eventually with the Bulgarians and enter Constantinople simulta neously with them. Ready to Keep Order. The plana of the commanders ot the foreign warships at Constantinople to maintain order are now complete. Their Intention Is to occupy the city if there Is the slightest possibility of a massacre. ITvcry arrangement has been made and every precaution taken. Last night I learned from Adrianople that that city Is In a state of rebellion and the soldiers are flaUy refusing to light the Bulgarians, who have captured several provison trains en route to the ltj. There is grave dissatisfaction unions the Turkish officers, TjO of whom have refused to obey the arm au thorities and have arranged meetings to discuss steps to be taken against the government which plunged the empire into a disastrous war without proper preparation. Tells of Horrible Cruelty of Turks London. Nov. 8. Appealing to his paper to "bring home to the govern ment and the people the factthat ter rible atrocities are "r-s'ng perpetrated daily by men in uniform calling them selves Turkish soldiers," the corre spondent of the Daily Telegraph ca bles from Eplrus, headquarters of the Greek army. "Such Influence as Great Britain pos sesses should be brought to bear upon the Turkish government In order to bring about immediate cessation of these horrible atrocities, the mildest details of which you would hardly dare to print. "By the express wish of the general officer commanding the arm at Eplrus I, myself, to-day held an Impartial in quiry. Witness after witness was brought before me and cross-examined in Turkish, and also, through an In terpreter. In Greek. They told their tale in the simplest language. They Kate the most revolting details in cold, bare words. They had no Idea who I was. or the purpose of their examina tion. There was no attempt to im press me with their story. I had, in fact, to drag it out of them In simple words with straight questions in which I suggested nothing. The tales all tal lied and I am prepared to pledge my word that their story was but a bald statement of fact. "Into the revolting and more obscene details of the wild excesses of the Turk " lsh soldier . egged on by their officers, at Kumuzadis, I cannot go. Suffice It to be said that many men were treacher ously murdered by the wholesale and old men and women tortured to death with fire. Young women and children were violated and maltreated with shocking cruelty. To add to this, every object of value portable was stolen and the rest of the village was given to flames. "To-day hapless refugees from Kumu zadis Turkish Christian subjects, be it remembered are being tended and fed by the Greek authorities. "Tortured "women and mutilated chil dren can be seen In Arta. I have seen them and spoken to them, and I have read with appalling sorrow what lies be hind their ejes. Even as I write a gen eial staff officer has come In with the new a that thirty more villages have been sacked and burned, and their populace subjected to torture and rapine. "If Christian Europe gives this land hack into Turkish hands it will be an act of barbarity and a disgrace to Christen dom No words of mine can paint the horrors that are our dally tidings. I beg jou so to put the facts before the people of Great Britain that under no circum stances will this sorely tortured land be given back to those who are now ren dering It a hell upon earth." The Telegraph adds a note that one passage was emitted describing some of the outrages. "They are of such a na ture that we refrain from reproducing them," sajs the note. j Kltsgerald Heads W. M. R.

A serious aftermath of Halloween de veloped jesterday when Carlos Huerta, the twenty-four-year-old brother of Rl cardo Huerta. third secretary to the Mexican legation, was sent to the Wash ington Asylum Hospital for mental ex amination. About 7 ,0'clock on the evening of AH Halloween, the voung Mexican visited his apartment In the Coywood Apart ment House, 1SS L Street Northwest, and turned on the light preparatory to changing his clothes for the evening. Across a court from one of his windows was the window of another apartment In which there was no light. As Senor Huerta, approached his window he heard a voice In the' apartment across the wa: "Now Is the lime to shoot the Mexi can; we will say it was an accident." This was followed, by an ominous clicking which, to the Mexican sounded like the cocking of a revolver. Huerta fled to the bathroom of the apartment house and locked himself In. Stopped lr Jnnltor. The occupants of the other apartment, a party of four voung .women and the same number of men, who had planned to frighten the Mexican, carried the Joke still farther by going to the bath room and beating on the door until they were stopped by the Janitor, It was some time before Senor Huerta could be persuaded to come out. and then he Insisted on telephoning for the police who found him in a highly nerv ous state. His brother. Senor Rlcardo Huerta, was summoned and Carlos was put under the care of a phvsictan Since then he has been In a highly excited and nervous state, and jesterday he was sent to the Washington Asylum Hospital in order that the aUenists there might determine the nature of his Ill ness.

Two United States warships will Join the International squadron now gath ering before Constantinople In antici pation of the fall of the Turkish capi tal. President Taft yesterday, after consultation with his Cabinet, directed that the armored cruisers Tennessee and Montana proceed at once to the Mediterranean. They will leave from the Philadelphia Navy Yard to-morrow, and should reach Constantinople In about eighteen days The declared purpose of this move upon the part of the President Is to afford Americans In both Turkey In Europe and Turkey In Asia w Ith means of protection and places of refuge. There Is every reason to believe that this u the fact, and there appears to be not the slightest ground for assum ing that the sending of the American warships may be taken to Indicate that the 'United States Intends to take a hand In the political aspects of the situation. While no conferences have been had with other governments with regard to the sending of the American cruisers to the Mediterranean, there is reason to believe that the Presidents action will be properly understood by the foreign powers, and not miscon strued Into anything beyond a protec tive precaution. r Americans at Belrat. There are a great many Americans In both Eastern and Western Turkey At Beirut and Smyrna, in Asia Minor, there la a large number of American missionaries and educators It Is the safety of these Americans that the administration Is understood to have In mind In sending the naval vessels to the Mldlterranean. Ambassador Rockhlll, at Constanti nople, has been instructed to confer with his colleagues ot ths diplomatic corps. It is fully recognized, here that not only Is the Balkan crisis a matter which more lihinediately concerns the 'European powers, but also that their representa tives at the Turkish capital are'prepared to take every step necessary for the pro tection of their nations and their In terests. For this reason. Ambassador Rockhlll has been Instructed to act only In co-operation with his European col leagues In any measures he may take for the protection of America: aln Tur key. While it Is feared that disorders rosy occur In Constantinople If the re treating Turks continue to give way be fore the allied troops. It Is believed the Eriropean squadrons will be In a posi tion to take care of the situation there. The chief anxiety In Washington la un derstood to be for the safety of Ameri cans in other cities of Turkev. Advices received here indicate that the fate of Constantinople will lie settled in a comparatively short time, probably be fore the Tennessee and Montana can reach that city. As It Is understood that the Turks Intend, If Constantinople Is lost, to move over Into Asia Minor, it Is feared that Americans In that region may be endangered. For this reason It Is expected that the American cruisers will find their principal task not at Con stantinople, but at other ports. Admiral Knight Commands. Rear Admiral Austin M Knight will be In charge of the American squadron. Admiral Knight is commander-in-chief of the reserve fleet at Philadelphia, to which the two armored cruisers belong. Rear Admirals Fletcher and Field will command the two cruisers. The Tennes see and Montana are each of 14.500 tons displacement, with a maximum speed of twenty-two knots. The fact that this government Is sending two light cruisers, instead of two Dreadnoughts is expected to make plain to the world the fact that the President's action Is purely for pur poses ot affording protection to Ameri cans, should his course be called In question. The failure of the United States to despatch warships to the Medlteranean at the moment when the European powers Issued orders for their squadrons to go to Constantinople was taken here as an Indication that this government In tended to leave It to the European gov ernments to look efter the Interests of Americans. This course was easily ex. plained by the fact that the United States Is not politically Interested In the Balkan situation, and recognizes the crisis there as one to be dealt with by the European powers exclusively. Though no positive statements were made, the impression was given that a "hands off" policy would be pursued In all respects by the United States, unless the situa tion changed most materially. While It is understood no notes to this effect were exchanged with the other governments. It Is known that such a course wss the one the European powers expected Wash Ington to adopt Boy Strnek by Car. Robert Sprtngirtn, ten years old. living In Bradley Lane, near Connecticut Ave nue, was struck by a Chevy Chase car as he was going to school yesterday morning. His left arm was fractured and his face lacerated. E. J. Murphy,"""of Bradley Lane and Connecticut Avenue, near whose home the accident occurred, carried the lad to Children's Hospital. It was said at the .hospital last night that Robert was dying well. . Straelc Child with Ax. Striking his stxteen-monthsiold grand child on the bead with an az is the charge on which the. police are looking for James Parker, colored, of 3XK Dent Place Northwest.

CONFESSION RUMORS RIFE District AttWHy Rifists ti Discuss RtftfistatOiicstcrs Hm TiM All. New Tork. Nov. (.Beneath their veneer of confidence in ultimate acquit tal, a new-born fear and respect for the law Is actively at work In "Gyp the Blood," "Lefty Louie." "Whltey Lewis." "Dago Frank." who went on trial be fore Justice Goff this afternoon charged with the actual murder of Herman Rosenthal. Pointed rumors followed the four men Into court that In terror of the electric chair they are ready to enter pleas of murder in the second degree. Judge Wahle. counsel for the gunmen, dented to-night that there was any such plan In contemplation. District Attorney Whitman, however, made this significant statement: "I will neither affirm nor deny the story. I cannot talk about it at all." There have been rumors before that the gunmen were willing to compromise with Justice. Long reflective days In the Tombs, coupled with the lesson of Lieut. Beckers conviction, have given them a new vlewpont on their relation to so ciety. Select Five Jarara. They made the plunge to-day, and five jLrors were selected before Justice Goff adjourned the trial until Monday morn ing. Midway In the Jury selecting, the twelve Jurors who had been trying Jo seph Conroy for the murder of Lawvcr Fetterleh entered the court room and the accused murderers of Herman Rosenthal sat serious-faced and silent while a ver dict of second deajree murder was re corded. - They whispered together after Conroy i r.d been led away, and then once more tie rumor spread that negotiations with Whitman had been opened up. Whatever decision Is reached, nothing will h rions until a furv hasVbeen sa lt cted, which will be not later thin .Mon day. Outwardly there Is yet -no sign of wav ering' on the part of any jne of the four. 1 A 'j Meet me on Tuaiivsgiviiig Day and I'll buy jou a drink." said "Gyp the Blood" late this evening as he rose at the end of the day's proceedings and shook hands with a fr'end Juit outside the rail.

All of the bravado which characterized their brief appearance at the Becker trial has departed there are no longer any sneers for the court no scoffing, no smiles or brazen stares. When court convened at S o'clock this afternoon and the defendants were summoned to thc.Dar, four quietly dress ed oung men, freshlv barbered, of mod est demeanor, walked alertly through the rear door and circling around the alley on the Franklvn Street side of the Supreme Court chamber, came to a stand within the rail. "Be seated, gentlemen, said Justice Goff. Good progress was made in this first day of the trial Out of twenty-nine talesmen examined of the panel of 100 summoned, flv'e Jurmen were secured; In this work the State exhausted six preemptory challenges, and the defend ants five. So rapid) did the work of selecting: a Jury go forward that Justice Goff' abandoned his plarr of holding session of the court to-morrow, and at six clock this evening declared a re cess untH .Monday. Jurymen Go to Homes. The Justice also deviated slightly from custom, and putting the Ave Jurymen selected on their honor not to read the newspapers nor discuss the case with any one. permitted them to go to their homes. With the completion of the Jury, of course, the twelve will be kept together continually until a verdict has been ren dered or no agreement Is possible. For the State, District Attorney Whit man was In active charge to-day, with assistant District Attorney Frank Moss, prosecutor of Becker, and Assistant Dis trict Attorney Rubin at his left. Judge Wahle has promised a surprise when the defense goes on, but he de cllnes to make public the nature of it until he begins his opening address to the Jury. At n otlme did either the defense or the Slate Indicate by Its line of ques tlonlng any special feature of their re spective cases. Mr. Whitman's questions were extremely brief .and while Judge Wahle was more positive, his interroga tories were along the customary lines of getting at the talesmen s frame of mind. The Jurors selected are. William H. Montgomery, bu)er: Leo Kreamer. real estate; Edwin Fisher, carpet designer: Frederick J. Shalek. malt dealer, and Charles P. Huntington, architect.
