Heavy Guns Pelt Adrianople
Bulgars Close in Upon City
While Powers Talk Mediation Allied Armies
Continue Relentless Warfare
ts able to maintain prolonged warfare.
Up to the present hour, there is no
sign that, anything has come of the
porte's appeal to the powers for media
tion. •
No replies have ben received in Con
stantinople, and there is little doubt
that when they are received they will
embody a declination to consider the
idea of proposing an armistice. Ap
parently Bulgaria is in no mood to ne
gotiate peace at the present time.
Although fighting still is proceeding
on the Tchorlu-Serai line and core
spondents are sending reports of Bul
garian and Turkish successes in that
neighborhood, according to which side
they draw inspiration from, the official
announcement from Constantinople that
the Turks are withdrawing to the
Tchatalja line of forts is not to be
4 doubted, and it is evident that this
fighting is merely an extensive rear
sruard action to cover the movement
of the Turks toward Constantinople.
The fall of Adrianople is exnected
The occupation of Buk. on the rail
way between Saloniki and Kuleili Bur
gas, is the last link of the chain
wholly cutting off the Turkish armies
which have been fighting the great
battles in the east from the scattered
forces in the heart of the country and
10 the west.
Comparative order is maintained in
Constantinople and Saloniki. but ap
parently the nervousness felt in Eu
rope over possible outbreaks is shared
! the Turkish authorities. ,
Tn Constantinople the government is
already seizing great quantities of
supplies for the army, and the likeli
hood of famine prices for food -will
add to the difficulties. Anxiety has
been partly relieved, however, by the
arrival of European warship 3. Others
are on the way. It is considered not
unlikely that the fear of serious out
breaks in Constantinople may influ
ence the powers to use diplomatic
pressure to bring about peace at the
.earliest moment.
The Balkan states' attitude toward
peace is emphasized in a statement
from official sources, which says:
The Turkish proposal of peace
is satisfactory in so far as it shows
a desire to prevent further blood

that the whole campaign was pre

Tt U suggested in some quarters that

end is making a last desperate stand to
cover the retreat of his shattered forces.
There is nothing, however, to confirm
this belief, and the best informed cor
respondent? agree that only scattered
remnants of the Ottoman army will be
able to reach the lines of Tchatalja.
W1lil« the number of troops engaged
in the f cries of battles fought between
the Turkish and Bulgarian armies in
Thra<-e during the last fortnight was
not as large as that of the armies that
fought in the Russo-Japanese war, yet
this probably will be the most savage
and bloody war ever fought in Europe.
CONSTANTINOPLE, Nov. 4.— None of
the powers has yet replied to the
porte's request for mediation. The be
lief is held here that King Ferdinand
will not be sorry to accept European
intervention, as it is considered that
after its tremendous sacrifices the Bul
garian army must be near exhausted.
Abdullah Pasha, commander of the
Turkish eastern army, etill is at Tcher
kesskeui and at noon today a Turkish
detachment destroyed an important
railway bridge at Tchorlu.
It npw becomes clear that the de-
commissariat largely was re
sponsible for the Turkish reverses. The
Turkish plans aimed at encircling the
Bulgarian forces by an advance on the
right wing. The Bulgarian general
concentrated his efforts on an attack
against the Turkish center in Serai and
the left wing along the railway. The
Turkish right was meeting with much
Fuccess, but the commissariat broke
down completely, owing partly to bad
■weather, which made the roads difficult
and prevented landing operations in
the Turkish base, Midla.
As a consequence, Mahmoud Mukh
ttr Pasha, commanding the right, was
compelled to sacrifice the advantage
gained because his troops were with
out food the whole day.
4.11 preparations have been completed
for the heir apparent to proceed to the
Turkish headquarter*, accompanied by
Ghazi Ahmed Mukhtar Pasha, the late
grand vizier, but they have not started.
It is asserted that the sultan himself
was deceived by Nazim Pasha's op
timistic report.*, and only realized the
true situation when an English cruiser
brought the latest news, which was
conveyed to the porte by the British
ambassador. The porte then asked the
powers to intervene.
The difficulty in maintaining order
Jβ increasing. It is said that a mob
went to the war office in Starnboul and
asked for weapons with which to at
tack the Christians, and this was the
reason Kiamil Pasha asked the am
bassadors to have warships at hand.
Nazim Pasha still is confident of his
ability to hold the lines of Tehatalja
against the Bulgarians, in spite of the
fact that mediation of the powers had
been invited in order to obtain an
armistice while negotiating for peace.
Aided by the Turkish fleet, it is
pointed out, the Ottoman army doubt
less will resist to the last in guarding
the gateway to Constantinople.
While the fate of war has been un
favorable to the Turkish armies on
the plains of Thrace, it is argued that
the Turkish soldiers can not reproach
themselves that the result was due to
failure on their part to uphold their
military traditions of valor and de
termination, which are their proudest
The Turks, it is said, were defeated
not because the Bulgarian is a better
or braver man, but because he is more
scientifically trained and better armed,
and probably in the matter of ar
In this connection military men here
are recalling the words of a distin
guished officer, who said:
While the Turkish soldier is
learning the goore step, the Bul
garian is learning to shoot
straight, and, what is more im
portant, to control his fire.
In some respects the fighting has
proved a test of French against Ger
man methods and of French artillery
against German artillery. All ac
counts agree that the Bulgarian guns
completely outranged those of the
Turks, besides being more rapid and
Wounded officers say that what dis
composed the men to the greatest de
gree was that they could not see the
the enemy while shrapnel shells were
bursting about them with the deadliest
effect. The Turkish soldiers fought,
they say, with splendid courage.
The casualties were enormous. Of
ficial sources admit that 15,000 wounded
were left in the battlefield.
VIENNA, Nov. 4. —Every effort is be
ing made by the Bulgarian com
manders to hasten the fall of Adria
nople, according to Lieutenant Wagner,
telegraphing to the Reichspost today
from the Bulgarian headquarters. The
desire of the Bulgarians is to release
their siege guns for eventual use on the
Turkish line in Tchatalja.
The power of resistance of the Turks
in Adrianople, Lieutenant Wagner says,
diminishes day by day. The Turks re
ply weakly and at intervals to the
heavy fire of the Bulgarian siege ar
tillery. The Turkish works on the
northwest front of the city have suf
fered heavily and since the last great
sortie by the garrison in the direction
of Maras the activity of tlfe Turkish
troops appears to have diminished con
siderably. The lack of provisions in
the invested city Is reported already
to have become extremely serious.

The Reichspost correspondent says
that the brilliant co-operation of the
Bulgarian commanders, combined with
the heroism of their troops, is bringing
to the Bulgarians fresh successes daily.
An attempt made by the Turks to
take up a position again to the north
of Servia and in Tchorlu. in order to
cover their retreat, totally failed, as
also did the intervention in the fight
to the east of Visa by Turkish troops.

Prussian officer named Yon Weit, a

by his own men after the disastrous
defeat in Lule-Burgae. The prisoners

Whole City Turns Out to Give
President Reception on Ar
rival in Cincinnati
CINCINNATI, Nov. 4.—President
Taft arrived in Cincinnati shortly be
fore 3 o'clock tonight after a 12 howr
ride across Ohio, during which he ap
peared on the rear platform of his pri
vate car to speak to station crowds
more than a dozen times.
He was driven immediately to the
home of his brother, Charles P. Taft,
where he will stop until Wednesday
I afternoon. One of the largest crowds
lof the day greeted him at the station
i here, and to the blare of a brass band,
i the cheers of his fellow citizens and in
a glory of red fire he was driven to
his brothers home. Tomorrow the
president expects to play golf on the
links of the Cincinnati Country club,
cast his ballot and then watch the re
turns come in.
Although he spoke during the day to
thousands of Ohioans, the president re
frained from talking politics. He had
many ft word to say about prosperity.
He remembered the proposed farmers'
banks and the duty of every citizen to
exercise his suffrage tomorrow, but he
averted any personal plea and asked
the support of no one. He came near
est to politics at Columbus, where a
good sized crowd was waiting to catch
a glimpse of him.
As the president started to speak, the
engineer in a nearby locomotive cab
blew his whistle.
'That must be a bull moose whistle,"
shouted a bystander.
"I think it is." said the president with
a sniile; "it makes enough noise."
A moment later the president started
his speech.
"I don't intend to ask yoft for your
votes." he said.
"You don't have to," yelled some one
in the crowd; "we're all for you here."
"Well," continued the president with
a laugh, "if there are enough of you
we will win."
President Taft spent the laet day be
fore election in a leisurely trip across ]
his home state, addressing crowds in
more than a dozen cities, and tonight
reached his home city, where tomorrow
he will cast his ballot,
Leaders of each of the three parties
are making claims of victory tonight.
Governor Harmon, returning here from
Columbus to vote, expressed his con
viction tnat Governor Wilson would
carry the state, and eaid he believed
Taft woulrl Dβ second.
Both the democrats and republicans
claim they will elect a majority of the
congressional delegation. Progressive
candidates for congress entered the
field in only a few more than half the
congressional districts.
Almost equal to the interest in the
presidential election here is the contest
for congress in the first district be
tween Nicholas Longworth. republican
candidate, son in law of Colonel Roose

Rosenberg and in which the boys left
the south end of Sherman street early
yesterday morning, was found about 5
o clock yesterday afternoon bottom up

Antone Depauli. father of Guido De
pauli, said tonight that at about 11
o'clock yesterday morning he saw a
boat motionless in the channel between
the Encinal Yacht club house and the
Eay Shore Yacht club house. It is I
thought that this must have been Hos- ;
enberg's canoe and that the two young
hunters were in it and in trouble at
the time. Rosenberg's father has
given up all hope and believes the
boys were drowned in the channel.
The canoe had a wooden frame and
was covered with canvas. It was small,
and when weighted with two persons

Granting of Preliminary Iniuno
tions Without Notice Is
WASHINGTON. Nov. 4.— ln promulgat
ing today the first revision of the equity
rules of federal courts in the last 50 years
the supreme court of the United States
prohibited the granting of preliminary
Injunctions without notice, and re
stricted the granting of temporary re
straining , orders.
The court embodied in the new rule
many of the points of the Clayton antl
injunction bill, for which labor leaders
have been fighting, which ha* passed the
house and waits in the senate.
Instead of temporary restraining or
ders being issued without notice upon
presentation to a federal judge of the
allegations that immediate and irre
parable damage is about to be ln
ftteted, the new rule requires that It
must bo shown by specific facts set
forth in affidavits or otherwise that
such damages will result.

When a temporary restraining order
is Issued a hearing on the injunction
must be given within 10 days. Hereto
fore no time limit was fixed by the
rules, and often not by the courts. The
court went still further and provided
that those restrained may come into
court within two days and be heard
with expedition on a motion to dis
solve the restraining order.
The new rules do not require those
procuring the restraining order to give
a bond, or the judge to set forth in
the order his reasons for granting it.
These were provisions in the Clayton
Chief Justice White did not refer to
the anti^lnjunction rule in announcing
the changes in the old rules, but em
phasized that the revision was de
signed to simplify procedure and re
move delays and reduce cost.
The new rules were announced by
Chief Justice White from the bench.
One of the tasks undertaken by him
when he was appointed chief justice
was to reform procedure in the courts.
He first revised the rules of the su
preme court itself.
For 17 months the cbi«f justice and
Justices T,urton and Vandevanter have
been working on the equity rules as a
subcommittee of the coert. The pres
ent rules came down (rom tho courts
of England, with only one or two re
visions since the beginning of the re
public. The last revision was about
&0 years ago.
The new rules as a general thing
provide for trial by the court instead
of a reference of the suit to a referee
to take testimony and report back to
the court. The chief justice said that
the new rules would make it possible
for the appeal court not to reverse
suits merely because of errors not pre
The new anti-injunction rule incor
porates into practice several demands
of labor leaders which they sought to
have recognized by the enactment of
the so called Clayton anti-injunction
bill. The new rule follows in a gen
eral way the rules of the federal court
in the ninth circuit, which comprises
the Pacific coast etatee.
The new rules will go into effect

American Federation of Laibor. said re

ary, 1909. sent from that city a news
paper clipping headed, "Dynamite
Wrecks Derrick on Pier," and wrote
"The money sent to Philadelphia was
well spent. How do you like that?"
Letters from E. E. Phillips, Syra
cuse. N. V.; P. A. Cooley, New Or
leans, and J. E. Munsey, Salt Lake
City, to McNamara were alleged to
be funds for the explosion of dynamite.
The letter identified as that of Mun
sey referred to nonunion work being
done by a Los Angeles contractor on a
building in Salt Lake City and said,
"We can't afford to let this firm get a
foothold in Salt Lake City, as they al
ready have given us a great deal of
trouble in Los Angeles and vicinity."
Clippings were inclosed about labor
union disputes. In reply McNamara
wrote, "Congratulations to the local
union. I hope you will show them
that Salt Lake City is a bad place for
them to attempt to do any steel erec
tion by nonunion men."
A few months later a hotel under
construction in Salt Lake City was
blown up.
