Tho men belonging to the Turkish
lifeboat station have left.
Veil lr, Lifted.
London, Nov 15. The announce
ment that the Bulgarians had rench
ed the vicinity of Kllios lifts a corner
of the veil -.rblch has been baffling
observers for some dnys regarding
their movements and shows that they
have managed to creep around behind
what is known as the Forest of Bcl

W) nop'e They are now in close proxi
jgi mltv to Therapia, the summer resort
0n of the residents of Constantinople.
'I?f : From Therapia a good road leads to

is a strongly defeuded fort at Kllios.

Iinnv be open to assault on the lan.l
Kllios is only three mlloa to the
west of Cape Rumcli, at the Black
Sea entranco to the Bosphorus, about
six miles north of Therapia.
Thf dash of the Bulgarian troops
seems to demonstrate that General
HH Snvoff. the Bulgarian chief, is not
Bl wholly depending on a frontal attack

It ; , but whother it will be brought about
before or after tho surrender of Con
stantinople is probably known only
to King Ferdinand of Bulgaria and
his advisers.
No official news has leaked out as
to the course the Bulgarian-Turkish
negotiations nre taking. If it bo true
as announced In Berlin, that Osmaii
Nizam! Pasha, the Ottoman ambas
sa'dor there, had been appointed first
Turkish delegate to a Bulgarian

appear that they are making good
Montenegro Holding Out.
i Tl e differences between Austrla
Ilungarv and Servia evidently arc in
a Tair way toward settlement, but
Montenegro, who jumped Into tho war
ahead of its allios. seems lonth to re
linquish any of the spoils gained in
fighting. The perempotry rejection
by King Nicholas of Montenegro of
Austrian and Italian intervention is
causing some concern to the Euro
pean power?, who are anxious for an
immediate cessation of hostilities and
toda.v romes a further report that
Kins; Nicholas has Informed the Bul
garia government thut he will not
agree 'ft an armistice unless the
Turkish troops evacuate the fortress
of Scutari.
Greeks Wait for Allies Rep y.
The ministers of the European
powers communicated to the Greek
government at Athens today the

Creek foreign minister exprcstscd his
thanks and gave the same replv fs l

namely tint n final respond -voald
'forthcoming after an px '-nt

pursued as far as tho village of Mor

Asserts Innocence and
Relates Full Details of
Rosenthal Murder
New York, Nov. 15. "Dago Frank"
Ciroflci, exonerated by his thrco gun
men pals of having oven been near
the scene of tho murder, took the
witness stand today to corroborate
their stories that Herman Rosenthal
was shot down by Harry Vallon and
"Brldgic" Webber, informers for the
state, and not by tho gunmen under
orders from Charles Becker.
Ciroflci swore that he Was on his
way up town to see his girl when
the shooting occurre'd, while the oth
ers just happened to be unfortunate-1
ly near the Hotel cMtropole at the
Invitation of Jack Rose, the state's
chief witness. Ho declared Rose had
never importuned him or the others
to "croak" the gambler, but had
.sought them out lo convince them of
his innocence in "framing up" 'Big
Jack" Zellit. his chief.
Witness Unshaken.
Cross-examination failed to shake
the witness. He gave prompt and em
phatic answers, admitted calmly that
lie ha dserved a jail sentence for car
r.vlng a gm and had been a silent
partner In an opium den.
Dato Frank a6seited in his tcsti-
n( that the evidence of Giovanni j
Standish in the Becker trial has been
misquoted by the interpreter, Stan
Ish speaking only Italian, which is
Frank's mother tongue. Frank swore
that instead of identifying him as
one of the men who did the shoot
ing, Stnnish said:
"I am In doubt about this man, '
indicating Frank. The latter credit
ed a similar statement to Stanish in
the district attorney's ofllce.
Lawyer Testifies.
Harford Marshall, a lawyer, next
testified that William Shapiro, driv
er of the so-called "murder car," had
told him in the Tombs that Sam
Schcpps and Harry Vallon were his
passengers when he drove to the Met
ropolc, Bartender Tells of Murder.
John II. Ilickey. a bar tender, told
of meeting Rosenthal on the n'ght
of the murder with "Boob" Walk or. '
and of going lo the Metropole. vvht
the three took a table In the dining i
"Rosenthal ?ot up. and spoke to ti
maW named . O'Dayr'' continued the
witness. "Then he came" back and
stayed three-quarters of an hour. A
man named 'Beau Brown joined us :
Then we went out to the street to get
some papers and whilo 1 was lead-
ing on the curb I heard a shot, look- j
ed up and saw a man with a gun In
his hand. The man's cap, which waf
over his eyes, did not prevent me
from seeing his long sharp chin and
straight nose. He 'was about 5 feet
S or 9 inches and weighed about ICO
or 170 pounds." I
Mysterious Stranger.
This description litted that of the
mysterious strangei given by the gun
men. "Was either of these four men the
man you saw shooting at Herman
Rosenthal9" asked Mr. Wahlc. indi
cating tho defendants.
"None of them was," was tho re
Plr New York, Nov. 15. "Dago Frank
Cirofici. the fourth of the gunmen
en trial for the murder of Herman
Rosenthal, was to take the stand to
day In an attempt to corroborate his
pais. "Lefty Louie.' "Whltey" Lewis
and "Gyp the Glood," who testified
yesterday that the shots which kill-
ed the gambler had not been fired
by them, but by Vallon and Web
ber, Informers for the state, and a
man as yet unidentified. I
,"Dago Frank." they swore, was not
oven near the scone of the murder,
as they were, but was uptown.
Defendants havo tried to establish
that they wero lured to the scene
by "'Bald Jack" Rose in order that
they might be Implicated, while Web
ber and Vallon did the Job.
A6idc from "Dago Frank," it is
understood the defense has at least
15 other witnesses to call.
'Dago Frank," hollow-cheeked, raw
boned, with curly Jot black hair, took
the stand at 10.30 o'clock. His tes
timony was almost a word-for-word
repetition of the story told by his
three fellow gunmen estcrday up to
tho point where tho witness said ho
left "Whitey," "Gyp" and "Louie" ut
Bridglo's poker rooms tho night of
the murder. He testified as to the
visit of "Jack" Rose to his apartment
to see "Whltey," "Lofty" and himself
"Was anything said by Rose or any
body that night about the croaking,
killing or removing of Herman Roscu
thal?" asked the gunman's attorney,
C. G. F. Wahlo.
"There was not," declared Frank,
shaking his head vigorously.
He said the only thing Rose dis
cussed was the "framing up" of Jack
Zelig, the gang lqador, and the shoot
ing of -Lefty Louie" In Chinatown.
Rose wanted to explain his innoceuce
In both aafflrs. said Frank.
"I said. "Woll, Jack, the boys are
from Missouri. You better show
em.' "
The witness then said that Rose
asked him to come with him while
they looked for the other gunmen.
The boarded the automobile in which.
Vallon and Schopps had arrived and
on the way down town Rose. Frauk
said, told him that he couldn't sleep
nights because of his worry of being
suspected of the framing up of Zelig.
"Rose said ho was known as a stool
pigeon for Lieutenant Becker, but he
would prove to me that he was not a
stool pigeon, but simply got the stoo!
pigeons for Becker and uever testi
fied against gambling Iiouhcs."
Arrived at the poker rooms, the wit
ness salu". Rose told Webber of his
disappointment at not fludiug "the
boys" at Dago Frank's and In about
25 minutes "Bridgie" went down stairs
and came back with "Gyp," "Louie"
and '"Whltey."
"To tho boys,1 the witnoss said,
"Rose repeated the tale of his Inno-.
cence in the 'frame up.' " Soon tho
mysterious 'stranger entered and af
ter having gone out and returned, said
Rose wanted them to go to tho Metro
polo to meet While and Stclnert
(Becker's men), who would prove that
Rose was guiltless of the frame-up.
The witness denied he had over
been In tho Mctropolo or knew any
thing about the shooting until the
next day. Likewise he denied partic
ipation in the alleged attempt to kill
Rosenthal at the Garden lestauranL
Further he denied that Jack Rose
in his presence had paid "Lefty Lou
ie" $1,000 as tho murder fee

Should Revise Currency Law.
Speaker Clark declared business
men were confident of continued pros
perity, and that "nobody pays any at
tention to the croakers except to laugh
at them." As to legislation other than
the tariff to he undertaken by the
next congress, the speaker said the
currency laws should be so revised
as to make more regular In New York
the money volume.
To Amend Sherman Lav.
He expressed the belief that there
would also be amendments to thc
Sherman anti-trust law, making it
more effective.
The coming regular session, tho
speaker said, will be devoted chiefly
to action on the regular appropriation
bills, although he expects other mat
ters to receive some attention

House of Representa
tives May Have to
Settle Election
Los Angeles, Nov 15. In all prob
ability the question of whether Wil
son or Roosevelt carried California in
I the presidential election will be taken
up by the national house of reprc-
t sentatives.
! This was the statement made todtiy
by Democratic leaders just beforo they
I went into a conference with the law
I committee of the Democratic county
committee to discuss the Los Angoles
I ballot situation and to determine their
plan of atlon with reference to tho
writ of mandamus now pending in tho
district court of appeals. The writ or
dered the supervisors to come into
court Monday and show cause why
they should not grant the Democratic
demand and throw out some G00 votes
in 27 out of the 3S city and county
A change of 600 votes from Roose
velt lo Wilson In this county unques
tionably would throw the state of Cal
ifornia Into the Democratic electoral
column, but Jeff Chanler. member of
the Democratic county law commit- j
tee. said today that it was doubtful
if a recount of the votes could be
forced, if tho situation developed Into
one of compulsion. Hence the idea
of carrying the case up to congress.
"But with the Wilson sweep in the
rest of the country, added Chandler
"congress might not want to bother
with California '
No Lav to Force Recount
As to the ability to force a re
count in court. Chandler said there
was no law In California giving the
right to compel tho authorities to
ordor a recount of the ballots In the
contested Los Angeles precincts.
Tho board of supervisors continued
today the canvass of returns
San Francisco, Nov. 15 Wilson
pared eight votes off Roosevelt's leaj
In California today by closer Inspec
tion of the returns from Alameda
county The net result was a plural
ity In the entire state of IS.
Unofficially, however, Registrar Ze
mnnsky estimated today that the can
vass of San Francisco county, which
was expected to bo complete this af
ternoon, would add 70 votes more to
Roosevelt's sUongth.
' Four years ago tho variation be
tween high and low man on tho win
ning electoral ticket amountod to
about 'J.000 votes. With the margin
of safetj between the two tickets as
close as it Is today, n split delegation
this vcar seems a certainty.
California has three times sent split
delegations to the electoral colloge -in
