this morning be seen by the life savers
on the coast clinging to the wreck, bu'
they were either hampered or too weak
to aeeept tlie line offered to them from
shore and one of them subsequently 1
sprang from tlie rigging and was drowned.
Tite vessel is rapidly going to pieces mid
it is feared it will be impossible t<> save
the man still aboard.
Reports from the New inlet life savers
to the ("ape Henry observer this forenoon
said that the weather conditions at tiw*
scene of the wreck were cloudy, with wind
blowing from the north at the rate of
thirty-eight miles an hour. The sea was
very rough. The life savers, however, are
making every effort to rescue the man
aboard the vessel.
Probably Storm Driven.
The schooner must have been caught |
and driven upon the reefs by the ter- j
rible gale that swept the coast about i
Hatteras last night and tried the resistance
of luavier craft. It isi be'ieved j
many ether small ships suffered.
The lookout 01 tile New Inlet life-saving
station, patrolling the bearcli at dawn.!
sighted the wreck struggling und.-r the
crashes 01 the giant combers which swept j
her and threatened to send her ushor?in
bits The tail end of iast night s gale
still traveling at thirty-eight mil. s an
hour, kept the wreck shrouded most of
the time behind a curtain of waves and
spray, but through glasses the life savers
couid see two forms, evidently men. lashed
high on the ma?'s of the ship, which
were clipping and stooping under every
assauit of the sea. Below them no being
could live
Surf Too Hoavy for Boats.
Life savers could not even launch a
float in the heavy surf, which pounded
down on the beachh, and the best that
could be done was to shoot out a
line. From the shore the two figures then
lashed in the rigging could he seen to
move, but they did not grasp the line
which repeatedly was shot within th< ir
reach. The life savers were sti.i working
at last accounts. With the tirst abatement
of the storm they will put out.

ceeded John \V. Hart as attorney of rec- ]
ord for Lieut. Becker, and that John F. i

Half a dozen detectives from police
headquarters were detailed today to meet
all trains from Chicago arriving here this j
afternoon to search for the four gunmen
sakl to be coming to take the life of l)ls- I
trict Attorney Whitman.
Word of the Chicago gunmen's alleged
plot against the district attorney's life
reached Air. Whitman by letter from
"Butch." who said he was k-eper of a
Clu ystie street opium joint The writer
gave no other name. and. in view of the
tact that about tiiiee hundred threat- j
ing letters have been received recently i
by Mr. Whitman, he was inclined to
make little of it.
Letter Given to Police.
The letter was given to the police, howover.
and, although they conducted a
fruitless search for the writer, they
claimed to have made certain discoveries
which impelled them to take the letter
more seriously than Mr. Whitman did. ,
According to the letter the four gun- i
men were to reach New York this aft- |
ernoon. and were to receive each
for their work.

LONDON. November 1!.?Only two line*

to the northwest of the fortified city of
Adrian opole and the other stretching
across the penlsula outside of Constantinople.

total obliteration of her power in Europe
> On neither of these lines of forts can
: much reliance be placed, in view of what

So confident ate the Bulgarians of
their ability to overcome tin- shattered
army of Xazim Cas ta, the Turkish com
maritit-r-inx-hief, now stretched along the
Tchataija line, built: to defend the ottoman
capital, that part of their army
is being sent back to Adrtanople. It
will there complete the investment of
that fortress and carry on the siege, and
if the pla<*e is not carried by storm will
starve it into submission.
There seems now to be no escape for
the Turks. The Bulgarians are followi
ing up their successes with a dash that
j surprises the world. They now are en
I deavoting to get a force <>f their troops

The thorough knowledge of tin- country

so rapidly also has been used to

Continue Attacks.
The Bulgarian liesiegets continue tue.r

and tile fall of the .strongest one of
