I London, Nov. 22. "Come and take

J From Sofia comes word today tint

PI modify their conditions. The Euro

I Turks Feeling Confident.
I Compared with Its earlier disastrous
experiences the Turkish army evident
ly now considers Itself in a favorable
I position. Military espertc here see in
the temporary failure of the Bulgarian
rush into Constantinople signs of a
reaction among the invaders after
i their efforts of tho past month.
Diplomats Hope for Settlement.
In view of the fact that the Otto
man capital, even if captured, must
ultimately be evacuated in accordance
I with the decree of the great powers,
It appears that the allies have noth
ing to gain bj Insisting on the sur
Ba render of the lines which form viitu
ztitr' ally the gates of tho city. Hence, the
BJ hope expressed by diplomats that this
m demand will be withdrawn, In which
9m case It is thought Turkey, recognlz
(I Ing that she has no prospect of'takins
zA the offensive for the recovery of her
H territory, would quickly conclude that
she has nothing to gain by continuing
H the conflict, Sho would perhaps agrt-e
H to enter into negotiations on the basis
H of, a surrender of all but a reasonable
H strip of territory at the back of Con
I stantlnoplc, the Dardanelels and tho
I Bosphorus.
!1 Plenipotentiaries Appointed.
R Tho announcement from Servla this
1 afternoon of the appointment of Bul-
i garlan plenipotentiaries to arrange for
I an armistice with the Turkish envoys.
I tends to confirm the contention of
J diplomats that the 'Ottoman rejection
of the first terms proposed by Bulgar
ia la has not barred tho door to further
B negotiations. Even the Ottoman em
m baasy here agrees that if the "oxor
M bltant" demand for the occupation of
II tho famous Tchatalja line of fortlfica
h tlons Is dropped the piinclpal obsta
I clo to the discussion of terms will bo
$ removed.
Constantinople, Nov. 22. The rejec
tion by Turkey of tho conditions of
fered for an armistice between the
opposing armies haa been communi
cated to the Bulgarian government.
One of the causes for .the rejection
waB tho opinion hold In official circles
In Constantinople that tho conditions
proposed by the allies deprived tho
1 Turks of the possibility of resuming
hostilities In tho event of tho failure
of the plenipotentiaries to settle on
termB. This, from the Turkish point
of view, meant no armlstlco at all.
Such, conditions, it Is held here, are
only made when It Is a question of the
preliminaries of peace and by accept
ing suoh tarms as thoso presented by
I tho allies. Turkey will be binding hcr
Sf self hand and foot.
ZA it Is further insisted that Turkey
haa not sunk to that degree of impo-
yl tency which would compel her to ac-
ly cept such conditions. .
S) Tho torms stipulated by the Bal-
JM kan states provided for the surrender
1)9' of Adrianople with Its garrison, for
S3 the evacuation of the Tchatalja lines
2 in front of Constantinople and for tho
M surrender of Scutari, Durazzo and Di
li bra. No mention is made of Constan
ts tlnople or the Dardanelles.

Indianapolis. Ind.? Nov, 22. Steal
ing 1.200 pounds of dynamite, hiding
It in a shed at Tiffin, Ohio, und then
transporting it in suit cases on pas
senger trains to Indianapolis, was an
experience related by Ortlo E. Mc
Manigal at the "dynamite conspira
cy" trial today
It was the explosive used by Mc
Manigal and the McNamaras after
the Los Angeles Times explosion and
by which ten non-union "Jobs" were
blown up in spite of the fact, the
witness said, that detectives for two
months had been on the trail of the
Confident that tho agitation over
tho Los Anjelcs explosions would
"blow over," and that James B. Mc
Namara would bo free to do "more
jobs," McManlgal said that plans were
begun in January of ID 11 to carry on
the dynamite campaign with zest.
"When I reported to J J. McNa
mara how easy It had been to steal
tho dynamite from a stone quarry
at Bloomville, Ohio, and store It in
my father's shed at Tiffin, he was
pleased," said McManlgal. ' I brought
him several suit cases of dynamite
as a sample and ho locked it up in a
vault at the office of the International
Association of Brldgo and Structural
Iron Workers. J. J. said he would
send James B. over to help me carry
it. We brounght it in such quanti
ties that J. J. said he could not
store it all at the iron workers' of
lice. Wo had about 1,200 pounds.
"It was decided to rent a barn. We

street, Indianapolis, owned by Daniel
Jones. Jones helped us get a piano
box, barrels and sawdust in which
we packed the explosive We told
him wo were storing' some old let
ters, but I took care to ask him
whether any children played about
the barn.
"J. J. ordered vs to cut off all the
trade marks on the .dynamite sticks,
because, ho said, it had been a mis
take to leave the trade markB on

had checked He had given the check
