nary series of dispatches has been re
ceived in Constantinople from Nn
.'im Pasha, Commander In Chief of
the Turkish army, stating that the
Turks have recaptured Bunarhlssar
ami atv holding their own agaiust the
advance of the Bulgarians.
, A Constantinople dispatch to a
London news agency states that at
midnight on Friday a terrible battle
wan raging on the western slopes of
the Island in mountains in Thrace, and
whatever the Issue the conflict will
undoubtedly be reckoned among the
world's greatest struggles.
A Pour Days' Battle.
WASHINGTON. Nov. 2.?A cable
gram received by the Turkish ambas
sador from the Turkish foreign office
at Constantinople states that a dis
patch from N&zim Pasha says that
the Turkish army has been engaged
in a serious battle for four days with
the Bulgatian forces. Nazlb Pasha
telegraphs that the most heroic re
sistance ever made against the
enemy, who suffered heavy losses.

of the Austrian army, who is at the
Bulgarian headquarters, wires the
Vienna Reichpost that "the great and
| final battle" between the nllietl forces
and the Turkish entered its decisive
phase on Thursday morning.
The prelude to the final crash ol
arris was a murderous opening en
gugement on .Monday which resulted
favorably to the Bulgarians, at Bu
leburgas. On Tuesday the Bulgar
ians delivered a counter attack
against the Turks.
There was bitter fighting through
out Tuesday "during which the Turk
ish main body lay degenerated into
senseless masses without cons'stency
or the power of fighting." On Wed
nesday strong Bulgarian forces,
brought by forced marches from
Adrianople. co-operated in the at
tack rolling up the whole Turkish
wing.
In the afternoon the Turks began a
i,c-neral retreat in the direction of
Tchorij.
On Thursday morning a decisive at
tack was delivered ou the right tlank
of the Turkish forces. The Turks
abandoned their line of retreat and
retired in a most disorderly condi
tion south, toward Tchortu. The
Turkish losses were enormous. Dur
ing their retreat they burned villages
and massacred many Christians.

The Work Cut Out for
. T
the Alaska Gastineau Co.
i\
r
Considerable publicity has already
been given to tho work which is now
being done, as well as that which Is
contemplated In the next couple of
' years, by the Alaska Gnstlneau Min
? ing Co.. of which B. L. Thane, a well
known Alaska mining man, Is w an
agor. However, too much publicity
of the right kind can scarcely bo giv
en to an enterprise of such magni
tude.
The consolidation and rcorganiza
liou of tho mining properties now In
cluded in the Alaska Gastineau Co.
was in itself a notable achievement
and was the work of manager Thane.
His success was the corollary of ex
perience and was due to the skill
and foresight displayed in enlisting
.nen v.ho knov the character of the
ore In the various mines, and who
were entirely capable of flnanc'n^ i
company which now has #4,500.000
in its treasury and which will be used
in carrying out the company's plans.
it may be a new and interesting
fact that the capital stock of the com
pany was subscribed ten times over
at a par value of #10 per share, and
the stock is now quoted at $15. The
new company controls the Salmon
Creek water rights, the Ground Hog
group, Silver Bow basin pincers and
i water rights. the Sheep Creek group
| and the well-known Perseverance
I property. Everything connected with
these properties has been cleaned up,
all debts have been paid, and the
company Is going ahead with plans
for the construction or a plant that
will have n dally capacity of 0,000
tons. It will be in oporatlon Jan. 1.
10IC. This work also includes the
construction of a tunel 8x10 feet, and
10,000 l'eet long to carry ore to the
mill which will be located on Snlt
water, at Sheep Creek.
The company's development work
has been divided into three divisions
to facilitate the carrying out of the
p riveted plans. The first division
Includes Salmon Creek, where the
power simply will be located; the
second is at Sheep Creek, whore the
ore will be crushed and treated, and
the third is the Perseverance Mine.
At Sheep Creek the work of driv
ing the tunnel is progressing in a sat
isfactory manner. A railroad through
flu tunnel will carry the ore to the
mill at t'flewater, and the company is
preparing for elaborate mining de
velopments in the Perseverance di
vision, which when the tunnel is com
i pleted, will connect it with Sheep
j ('reck.
, Til; llrst unit of the bis (lam at
I Salmon Cr ok will soon be an accom
I plight d fact, aiul work will be pushed
i until tbo whole Is finished.
Tiie mining and milling of G.000
tons of ore dally will require a force
of i,500 men.
Mr. Thane states t/iat work will be
continued throughout the winter, he
having arranged for the transmission
of the power necessnry to carry on
the operations.
Anions those Interested in the Alas
lea Gastincau Co. Is Col. D. C. .tack
ling, of the Utah Copper Co., one o?
the best known mining men of the
world, besides other members of that
M .
Company. The Guggcnhcims arc
only interested as minority stock
holders of the Utah Copper Co.
These are all men who know their
business, hence their success. "Our
company wants to co-operate with the
people of this cectlon," said Mr.
Thane yesterday. "A man sometimes
gem a notion in his head that he can
do things alone, but if lie thinks it
out he will soon find he needs the
r apport of friends,"- a bit of phi!
osi>; ?! y and candor well worthy of re
memherance.
Andrew Carnegie Sumbits to an Inter
esting Interview Upon Reaching Home
Andrew Carnegie, who returned to
Now York from a visit tc Europe re
cently gave an Interesting Interview
to the New York World,- which in
cluded a number of subjects, runuing
from Kings to citizenship. Among
other things he said'
"The great calamity at Milwaukee^
so happily averted, has saddened my
trip. We were all so happy and hav
ing anch a good time on the Baltic
when the terrible news came to us.
Yes, i had prepared a typewritten
-Lueiueut. but 1 could not thin); of
giving it out after the shooting of .Mr.
itoocevelt, and, of course, i had to
tear it up.
"There Is nothing low, mean or base
about Roosevelt. He is an honest
man. He does what he believes is i
right. However much you may differ j
from his policies, you cannot help ad
uiiring his courage. Personally h? :
me:'is to do what is right.
? "I'm glad ! have come back in time
to cast one mere vote for my friend.
.Mr. Taft. I think Taft has done so
well that 1 ought to give him my
vote."
Proud of His Citizenship.
"1 wouldn't exchange my American
citizenship for paradise, unless I had
a return ticket. My father was a Re
publican before me?in Scotland. All
our family have been Democrats, in
ih< European .icuse, and have boon
rj close to the people,
i always lauKh when 1 am in the
>i\ <\ .< of Kings. When I was sup )
: orintoodent of a railroad the late
King Edward (then the Prince of
i Wales), rode with me on the loco
I motive. We talked about govern
| meats.
"'Now you see that the Republi
can torn, of government does not
yield tin- results that yt hi monarch;
d by one man might do better."
'.'aruegli called lilin the King). 'Yon
(don't know, you see, who your next
Pre; .dent is going to be.'
" 'I don't know now, it is true, your
.majesty,' 1 replied, 'hut 1 tell you that;
i you will take all our Presidents,
from Washington to Lincoln and see
the wonder: ul men we have had, and
lien glace down the list of Kings
on had In the same time, your Maj
esty, you must admit you have had
a good many scalawags.'
'"Yes. yes." replied the King, 'but
that was before my time.'
"I know King Edward's son also,
and ho is a lino follow. Kings are
good fellows, and so they realize what
frauds they arc.
' Now, take the Emperor William.
He ir a splendid fellow, and his fam
ilv is just as pure as the family of
Hojsc'.vlt or the i'amily of Taft.
"Why, the German Emperor recent
ly made n temperance speech.
"1 h' i sorry for Mexico. I think
titis trouble will be worjo than the
first. 1 should be sorry to see Mexico
annexed io the United States. We
iia'. enough territory already."
Wished to Be a Reporter.
Mr. t'urucgic remarked that all the
reporters, his >ild tricaus, were look
lug well.
"By George, how I wish I could
huv? been a reporter, but th. Pitts
burg Journal wouldn't take me." he
?.veiaimed. "In my life I've had to
do what 1 could, not what 1 wanted
to do.
"What an idea that was of m>
friend Holt's wasn't it? An endowed
newspaper! Why, lie couldn't get
anybody to listen to him. 1 donH
think an endowed newspupt r by a
syndicate would take. A paper en
dow id by one man mibht do better."
The l.nird said lu had had a most 1
pleasant similiter. Fortunately, he
said, lib- little farm of tit!,000 acres 1
above Inverues on tliA northwest J
last of Scotland had escaped the ex
cess I foly rainy weather that afflicted
the rest of Great Britain.

BUTtl SSDtS
PREDICT VICTORY
SEATTLE, Nov. 2.?At the c.oi.e
of the political campaign local and
state managers of the respective par
ties are each predicting victory on
Tuesday. There seems to bo only
one thing certain and that is the
overwhelming defeat of Hodge, tin
Progressive candidate for goViva.i:.
The expose of Hodge's record' num.
by the Post-Intelligencer, lias pas
tured his chances. This is the i.pa .
ment made by some of his leading
supporters.
The Democrats have been ban il
capped by the substitution ol Ern
est Lister, as their candidate L?r
governor In place of Judge W. V.'.
Black, who was recently disquali..td
by the Supreme Court, Black I elng
judge of the Superior Court of Sim
homish County. Lester has, how
ever, beeon making a whirlwind ca ,t
paign and is believed to be especially
strong in the southwestern part ui
the state. ' ?
Governor Hay, the Uepubllcan e.n.i
didate, aided by a number of good
speakers, has also been making an
active campaign, and the drift sc? t/i.
to be hiB way.
Chas. G. Ilolfner," Democratic' can
didate in the First Congressional dis
trict, claims hit t lection as a certain
ty. He bur. a. hits opponents State
Senator Dan Landcn, Progressive;
and Congressman \Y. E. Humphrey,
Hepublican. The-vote probably will
be close.
The recent \l3it of Gov. Thomas 15.
Marshall, the Democratic vide presi
dential nominee, is generally conced
ed to have been a great ruccers p?>
litically and socially, lie received a
splendid reception while litre, his
meeting being largely attond.d -ami
very enthusiastic. He Is a bri.5hi.iV'
campaigner and made a hit Win
with those of different political
faiths. i
Democratic managers confidently
predict that Wilson will carry the
state, claiming that the Hodge fins
alone will turn thousands of votes to
the Democratic column. .This how
ever, Is just claiming, and nothing
more. The Republicans make simi
lar claims for '."aft, and the Progr- f
slves seem confident that the Colonel
will lead all competitors.
