Greeks March Into City After Long Drawn
out Battle ad Put Stop to Massacre of
Christians To Move on Gallipoli.
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.
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

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
"To-day hapless refugees from Kumu

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

Mexican Diplomat's Brother
"Was to Bi Shot" on
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
"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. Senor Huerta Is a student of archi
tecture at Catholic University, this being
hie sophomore vear. He is of a high
strung, nervous temperament, and has
been a hard student.

The pugilist displayed the first violence

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
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

Wahle. counsel for the gunmen, dented
to-night that there was any such plan
In contemplation. District Attorney
Whitman, however, made this significant
"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

accused murderers of Herman Rosenthal
sat serious-faced and silent while a ver

The Justice also deviated slightly from
custom, and putting the Ave Jurymen

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

were extremely brief .and while Judge
Wahle was more positive, his interroga

serious charge Is added.
Proof of these allegations as described
In the papers was found early this morn
ing when a highly sensational affair took
place In the Hotel Dunlop. where the
husband had learned that Marquard and
Mrs. Kane had registered 33 "Rube Mar
quard and wife." They had been there
since November as such.
Kane had enlisted two Philadelphia
detectives. The three came here to
gether and shadowd the pair while they
made the rounds of the board-walk
cafes and returned to the Dunlop at

by the pitcher and the actress. They
declare they heard the pair chatting
gayly together until : o'ciock wnen iney

half hour they stormed the door, finally
muhlnff it in.
Kane says he found his wife attired In
her night dress, hiding under the bed.
Rube was hiding in a clothes closet, be
hind an overcoat. He was dumbfound
ed, aoeechless and scared, said Kane.
When he recovered Rube asked permis

"We went down stairs to the exchange
where the constable had arrived wun tna
warrants." said Kane. "We waited until
S SO this morning. In the meantime
Bob Dehvney. proprietor of the hotel,
had arafueii with us while Frank Bow

and guided Marquard and Mrs. Kane to
the back of the hotel and they made a
getaway down a fire escape, securca
