BALKAN STATES ATTACK TURKS ON FRONTIERS Constantinople Declared in State of Siege While Enemies Are Far Away Continued From Page 1 Austria declare to the Balkan states: First, that the powers cnerget loallv reprove any measure sus cepjjble of causing a rupture of the pcs >nd, that, leaning on article XXIII of the treaty of Berlin, they mill take in hand, in the interest Cf the Balkan peoples, the relation of reforms in the administration of European Turkey, it being un derstood that these reforms shall not. affect the sovereignty of the an or the territorial integrity of tha Ottoman empire. The pow ers reserve to themselves liberty of action for a collective ulterior study of these reforms. Third, that if war breaks out be tween the Balkan states and tbe Ottoman empire, they will permit at the end of the conflict no modifi cation of the territorial status quo in European Turkey. The powers will make collectively to the sub lime porte representations similar to the above declaration. BI'LGARIA IN LEAD la declining to concur in the views of the two powers, the Montenegrin government declared that its patience was exhausted. For more than two months it had been protesting in vain to Turkey, and resort to arms was the logical sequence. Even if Montenegro stood alone, it was added, she was un able to act differently. An explanation of the Balkan union is given by an official who understands the~ situation thoroughly. An alliance, properly speaking, does not exist. Mon tenegro is not alliad with Servia. But Bulgaria, after signing a treaty with Servia. concluded a second treaty with Montenegro and a third with Greece. Bulgaria, therefore, stands as the link binding together the Ealkan states, and it is Bulgaria that, plays the lead ing; role. Porte Receives Declaration CONSTANTINOPLE, Oct. S.—Prior to receiving his passports from the Turkish government the Montenegrin charge d'affaires, M. Plamenatz, handed the following note in behalf of his government to the Porte: I regret that Montenegro has ex hausted without avail all amicable means of settling the numerous misunderstandings and conflicts ■which have constantly arisen with the Ottoman empire. With the authorization of King Nicholas I have the honor to inform you that from today the govern ment of Montenegro ceases all re lations with the Ottoman empire, leaving it to the arms of the Mon tenegrins to secure recognition of their rights and the rights that have been ignored for centuries of their brothers in the Ottoman em- pire. I am leaving Constantinople. The royal government will hand his passports to the Ottoman repre sentative at Cettinje. PL.AMENATZ. Shortly after the presentation of this note, which was accepted as a declara tion of war. a council of war -was held at the grand vizierate. The session continued late into the night. The noted general Mahmoud Schefket Pasha, who commanded the constitutional army and was formerly minister of war, was present. The city Is patrolled by strong detachments of cavalry and in fantry. A state of siege prevails, and there is much excitement, but no demonstrations are permitted. The Ttirkish view, aa expressed by officials, is that Turkey was ready to enter into negotiations about the frontier dispute with Montenegro, and hence Montenegro's complaint on this score was a mere pretext to precipitate a conflict before the powers were able to intervene. Montenegrin forces early this morn ing attacked Berana. which at noon was surrounded. Skirmishes also are reported on the Servian frontier and with Greek bands in the neighborhood of Disk.tta. An exchange of shots has o'-<-urred near Djumabala, on the Bul garian frontier. Late tonight the Bulgarian. Servian and Greek ministers were still with out instructions from their govern ments, but their baggage was packed in the expectation of a rupture at any moment.
