Invading Force Which Crossed
Turkish Border Is Said to
Be Destroyed
Serious Skirmishes Have Qc*
curred on Both Servian andh
Bulgarian Frontiers
By noon the mountain was evacuated.
and the Montenegrins, flushed with
story, advanced to attack the heavily
rtified mountain of DetChltch, com
manding- the road to Scutari.
At 3 o'clock in the afternoon the
Turks landed troops or. the shores of
Scutari, close to the Montenegrin
frontier. Both armies extended their
lines and the battle became general.
The latest advices from the Montene
grin headquarters in Padoritza state
that Crown Prince Danilo. who is'
commander in chief, and Prince Peter.
have just returned from the battlefield
to consult King Nicholas.
The Montenegrin position is believed

turn of the princes was for the pur
pose of urging the king t# hasten a
diversion by Montenegro sallies.
Turkey Rushing Reserves
[Special Cable io The Call]
CONSTANTINOPLE, Oct. 9.—Turkey's
reserves are being hurried to the front
on the theory that Montenegro's ini
tiative in declaring war means a gen
eral Balkan attack.
Tt is realized, however, that the main
Balkan states are not yet committed
to war, and that the action of Mon
negro may have been intended to
give both Turkey and the great powers
a further and still more accute fight.
If this is the purpose the present in
vasion of Ottoman territory will fail
so far as Turkey is concerned, although
it may accelerate and stiffen the rep
resentations of the powers.
Ottoman military chiefs regard the
war as begun and suppose that Mon
tenegro has been assigned to the task
of holding a Turkish army corps
while Bulgaria and Servia carry out
a determined assault.
It is plain that the allies mean to
force Turkey to spread its forces over
a wide front and launch the main ac
tion only after the thinning of the
Turkish lines has been accomplished.
This doubtless is good strategy, but it
is not likely to weaken the Ottoman
army dangerously at any point, since
the number of reserves is great and the
< haracter of the country over which the
invaders must march is favorable for
Greece Probably Will Act
ATHENS. Greece, Oct. 9.—The.coun

Public opinion strongly is [
against any relaxation of a firm atti
tude toward Turkey, which within the j
last week has been forced to resusci

The Berlin treatey, which Turkey has
allowed to remain ineffective for "4
years. As for Ottoman integrity, its

All day yesterday Governor Har
mon and his associates were busy re
ceiving and returning official calls,
viewing the site of the exposition to
choose the building locaiion that will
be dedicated today and. in general,
becoming acquainted with those with
whom they will be associated in ex
position work. The day culminated
-with a visit 3'esterday afternoon to
Goat island, where the visitors wit
nessed a drill, parade and review of
the corps of naval apprentices, and
with a dinner and theater party last
evening as the guests of William T.
Sesnon, chairman of the reception
committee of the exposition.
This afternoon the formal site se

will be carried out, following a review
of the regular troops stationed at the
reservation, and this evening Gov
ernor Harmon and the members of
the Ohio delegation will be the
guests at a reception at the Palace
Governor Harmon and his party
were to have arrived Tuesday even
ing, but their train was delayed and
it was 9 o'clock yesterday morning
before they stepped from the Southern
Pacific ferry at the ferry depot. There
they were met by officers and mem
bers of the Ohio society, including
President T. A. Nerny and Secretary
Henry Hilp, and also by a reception
committee appointed by Chairman J. O.

From the ferry depot the Ohio party
was taken by automobile direct to the [
St. Francis hotel, where the round of ]
formal calls immediately began. First j
to extend formal greetings to the visl- I
tors were Joseph M. Gumming. secre- i
tary to President Moore of the exposi
tion, and "Lieutenant Commander David
Foote Sellers, President Moore's naval
|aid. At 9:30 o'clock Mayor Rolph and
j Major General Arthur Murray, com
i mander of the western division of the
United States army, accompanied by
Shis aid, Lieutenant Henry Pratt, ar-
I rived at the St. Francis to pay their
formal respects'.
At 10 o'clock the Ohio party returned
the mayor's call at his office in the city
hall, the entire delegation being pres
ent. The "party consists of Governor

Connick took charge of the members
of the delegation and accompanied
them to the exposition grounds for a
preliminary inspection of the building
sites available for state buildings.
All the members of the commission
expressed themselves as wonderfully
impressed with the beauty of tho site
as they were driven around and
through it in automobiles. A stop
finally waa made near the bay shore
within the Presidio reservation, and
with maps' before them, the four mem
bers of the commission trudged over
the grounds and tindertook the task of
choosing the particular location for
Urn Ohio building. It proved no easy
task and a definite decision was not
reached, although it is probable that
the site finally determined upon will be
a fine block adjoining the Illinois tract
and directly opposite the Canadian ex
From the exposition grounds the Ohio
commissioners and members of Gov
ernor Harmon's staff were whirled back
to the Commercial club in the Mer

Again they we're greeted by representa

Chamber of Commerce and city and
exposition officials.
While this luncheon was in progress
Mrs. Harmon and other ladies accom
panying the Ohio party were luncheon
guests at the Francesca club. Later
they rejoined the male members of the
party and participated in the afternoon
trip to the naval training station at
Goat, island.

Governor Harmon was given a cor
dial ovation when he was presented by
6ddie and expressed his pleasure at
being in San Francisco upon the mis
sion of arranging for Ohio's participa
tion In the 1915 exposition. He said:
Last winter we had a most ex

ing me to accompany them to St.
Paul, and I did so, and I probably
saw more of them than anybody
east of the Rocky mountains. It
was one of my pleasures to get ac
quainted with Colvin B. Brown,
who represented the governor of
California and the exposition, and
he was a fine specimen of the state
and of the western people.
Now, of course, everywhere they
went we had to hear from them,
and they told such extraordinary
stories about what you were doing
out west that a wave of skepti
cism came over our state. Our
people did not believe half they
said, and so when it was proposed
at the last session of the legis
lature that Ohio should participate
in your exposition the people said
they would not do so unless 1 came
out here to confirm these stories.
I had to appoint these gentlemen
to come out with me to report
whether your representatives spoke
the truth. They wanted to know
whether it was true that in these
few years San Francisco had raised
itself from the ruins left by the
Now I believe it. I knew what
you people were, and I l*ave met
many of you before, and I knew
that anything was possible for your
patriotic enterprise. With the
usual pride of doing honor to our
state, we were sent out here to
learn what had been accomplished
and report whether it was true that
your people had redeemed the des
ert and made the very rocks fertile,
and whether it was true that you
are going to have the greatest ex
position in the world's history to
celebrate the greatest achievement
of modern times.
I knew that the quality of your
hospitality was never strained. I
know how you treat the strangers
in your midst when they come from
a state that has furnished more to
your population than any other
state In the union.
I want also to say this, that you
are "all business." Before I had a
few winks of sleep I was whisked
out to your exposition site. T
wanted to have some fun, but I saw
that with you business was first.
That is why I know your exposi
tion is going to be a success.
It is going to be the great
pleasure of my associates and my
self to go back to Ohio and make
aa good a report as Joshua and hie
brethren did of the Promised land
when they were sent out to spy.
Ohio will not be lacking in mak
ing its exhibit. It will not be be
hind any state in the union. We
want the union balanced up. We
want this great western coast bal
anced so that every state of the
nation will be equal and there will
be no distinction between them.
I can assure you that our visit
thus far has been a joy to all of
us. and we will go back with most
pleasant memories of your hospi
tality, and ready, conscientiously,
to make a report that will please
you all of what we have seen of
the great enterprise you have
We will not only promise you an
exhibit of our extraordinary and
varied industries, but we will send
you the best exhibit we have,
is, our men and women in vast
Colrin B. Brown of the Exposition
company. In response to Governor
Harmon's address, said in part:
California has had no more dis
tinguished visitor to entertain than
the chief executive of Ohio, the
mother of the west.
As a member of the party ac
companying the western governor's
special train that preached the
western propaganda throughout the
east. Governor Harmon left an im
pression upon each member of that
party that will never be effaced.
The governors of the western
states who met Governor Harmon
learned from him that he, as execu
tive of the State of Ohio, had a
complete comprehension of Califor
nia's enormous task in the building
and conducting of the exposition
that will be a credit to the nation
and the event it is to celebrate.
Here today he has again voiced
his convictions of the international
scope of this great national enter
prise. We have entertained many
people, we realize the enormity of
the task before us. but no one
has brought to us a message that
has been more Inspiring or that
has come from a more appreciated
sourc« ilian that borne by Gover
nor Harmon of Ohio.
At 2:ZO o'clock the Ohioans and their
hosts, accompanied by the ladles of the
governor's party, boarded the United
States army tug Slocum at the Wash
ington street wharf for the trip to
Goat island, v. here they were enter
tained during the afternoon by Cap
tain C- -A- Sove, commander of the
training station, and Mrs. Gove.
From the heights overlooking the
drill grounds of the station, tho visit
ors viewed a fine drill, review and par
ade by the apprentice battalion of the
island. For a half hour the embryo
sailors were put through maneuvers and
formations to the music of the band
of the naval training school, and then
marched off the field singing.
Following the exhibition drill the
members of the party were entertained
at lea at Captain Gove's residence, and
as they left the island a salute of 17
guns was fired from the training ship
Intrepid in honor of Governor Harmon.
President Moore and his naval aid,
Lieutenant Sellers, called formally upon
Governor Harmon and the members of
his party immediately after their re
turn io the St, Francis hotel late in the
afternoon. The Ohioans were then
taken to the Bohemian club to dinner
as the guests of William T. Sesnon of
the entertainment committee, and later
to the Orpheum theater.
In honor of Governor Harmon and
his military staff the Presidio will turn
out in gala attire today. Staff officers,
in full uniform, will demonstrate the
drill perfection of the Presidio troops.
A mounted band and Troop B of the
First cavalry, in command of Captain
Samuel R. Gleaves, will meet the gov
ernor's party at the grates of the Pre
sidio, about 3:20 o'clock. He will be
escorted to the big grandstand that has
been erected on the parade ground in
front of Letterman hospital, and from
which ne will review the troops.
After the review the mounted cav
alry will escort the gubernatorial party
to the exposition grounds, for the dedi
cation ceremonies.
Youth Persists in Calling Himself

killed at Terre Haute, Did., five years
"No," said the father. "I was never in
Terre Haute. Your name is not Eugene
Harold Hiekey. Hickey is a name your
nurse called you for a nickname in
Portsmouth, Va., when you were in the
hospital there. Harold you used to call
yourself when you were little, because
Horace was too hard for you. I don't
know where you picked up the Eugene.
You know, my son, when you were in
the navy you were stricken by sun
stroke, that made you forget your
mother and me. Don't you remember
your mother, Horace?"
"My mother is dead," answered Horace
positively. "I was never in the navy; I
used to work on the White Star line. I
went all over the world on the White
Star line. I was hurt by a motorcycle at
Coney Island, and they took me to the
'hospital from there."
"What is the name of the nurse you
had at the hospital?" asked W r ailing.
"Fitzgerald," answered the boy.
"Good," answered the father. "That's
how I knew where you were. When
you made out your personal record for
the Southern Pacific you referred to
this nurse among the five that you had
to give reference and that nurse
sent me a lettergram which I received
this morning and I came here at once
to get you. I have advertised all over
the coast for you, my boy. I would
have been a millionaire if it wasn't for
the time and money I have spent hunt
ing you. Will you go home with me?"
The boy hesitated. He did not know
the man. He turned to the night agent,
his boss.
The father addressed his words to
the night agent:
"He has a good home in San Mateo.
The last I saw of him he was playing
tennis in the yard—what did you do
with your tennis suit, Horace?"
"I do not know anything about any
tennis suit. I don't know you."
"If you have a home to go to," said
the night agent, to whom Haroce had
turned for advice, *T do not see any
reason why you should hesitate."
"Why." exclaimed Walling, "here is
your picture, Horace, when you were
a little boy. Don't you remember this?
It shows you with your first real watch
on. Don't you remember?"
The young man was finally con
vinced that he was Waiting's son.
