LONDON, Feb. 2.—The porte has or
dered the Turkish plenipotentiaries not
to leave London until hostilities are
resumed, and has instructed the army
to await the attack before firing a
shot.
Thus, the Ottomans, with the excep
tion of the Montenegrins, the only
delegates left in London, remarked
today that nobody could accuse
them of not having done all humanly
possible to come to terms. Animated
by a humanitarian spirit, they added,
Turkey wished to avoid useless carnage
and wished also to show deference to
the advice of the powers, although
Europe had been unfair toward Tur
key.
COMPLIMENT FOR AMERICANS
Doctor Daneff, head of the Bulgarian
delegation, before leaving London, re
called what he had said in his first
statements on arriving in London that
t!v lialkan peoples, who had adapted
the Monro© doctrine to their penin
sula, aspired to become the Americans
of Europe. They toad inaugurated a
policy of sincerity and straightfor
wardness, as was proved by their frank
conduct in the peace conference, where
they demanded from the first exactly
what they intended to take.
The Balkan representatives, he said,
would not have waited to their own
disadvantage before resuming hostil
ities but for the genuine regard which
the Balkan kingdoms held for the pow
ers. He again rejected the Idea that
even a small fraction of Adrianople
should be retained by Turkey.
WILL BECOME THEIR FKIEM)
Doctor Daneff concluded by saying:
"Turkey should have understood that
she must abandon Europe entirely, her
permanence fhere being opposed not
only by the allies, but by the powers
themselves, as shown by their collect
ive note. Turkey has refused to quit
peacefully, but will be forced to do so
by another war. after which, fully
realizing the strength of the Balkan
states, she will become their friend."
Osman Nizami Pasha of the Turkish
delegation ridiculed the assertion that
the allies would be able to storm Adri-

TWO WOMEN DIE
IN A NEW YORK
FILM SHOW PANIC
Boy's Cry of "Fire" When|
Reel Explodes Starts a
Rush in Which Many
Are Crushed
NEW YORK, Fel>. 2.—A boy's cry of
"fire" and the smoke from an exploded
reel of a motion picture machine in an
East Side theater tonigTit resulted in
a panic among- the audience of 4.000
j persons and a rush for the exits in
I which two women were, killed and
eleven others so badly injured that
they had to be sent to hospitals.
The panic occurred in one of th?
most densely populated sections of the j
East Side and the thousands who
poured into East Houston street in
front of the theater and rushed to the
doors added to the confusion and to j
the number of injured.
The two women, who were lot iden
tllled. were trampled to death in the
crush of the crowd to reach the doors.
The operator of the machine soon ex- j
tinguished the burning: film and the |
flames did pot spread beyond the tire j
proof cage in which he worked.
With the exception of one rear exit
doar, the only means of escape was
through the main vestibule and it was
bore in a narrow space that most of
the injured were found.
Steep steps lead from the sidewalk
to the theater entrance and down these
hundreds fell while those behind piled
on top. It was more than an hour be
fore it was known definitely that only
two had met d£ath.
In the panic clothes were torn from
their wearers, and the police gathered
up a great pile of coats, shoes,
eye glasses and even pocket books. A
few rings and watches were among
the salvagq taken to a police station
for identification.
Fire Commissioner Johnson declared
there were 800 similar places in Great
er New York where conditions are
equally perilous. He said that the
owners had complied with the ordi
nances.
