Crushing Defeat to Turkish
Troops in Peninsula of
Galiipoli Seems to Be
Contents of Czar's Letter to
Franz Josef Is Not
Made Public
HHal dispatch was received from the
Tchatalja lines tonight.
Tt says:
"Skirmishes continue in front of the
Turkish army at Tchatalja. hut the
situation is unchanged. Our infantry
and cavalry on the left wing are har
assing- the enemy. Engagements,
which do not modify tlje situation, are
proceeding in the direction of Gallipoll,
between the Turkish troops at Bulair
and the enemy's forces at Xamllon.
'The bombardment of Adrianople
still is in progress, but the fortress is
offering violent resistance."
Great Battle Not Confirmed
LONDON. Feb. B.—A sensational re
port that the Turks suffered a crush
ing defeat at the hands of the Bul
garian troops in the peninsula of Gal
lipoli and lost 16,000 killed and 10.000
prisoners, which was published in Ber
lin this morning, received no confirma
tion or support from any other source
Tt is doubted here whether such a
battle could have been fought and such
a victory won without Bulgarian head
quarters hastening officially to notify
the world.
A telegram received from the Bul
garian capital this afternoon made no
reference to any fighting. Tt merely
mentioned the departure of King Fer
dinand for the field.
Montenegro, like all the rest of the
belligerents in the Balkan war, is
badly in need of funds. The govern
ment at Cettfnje is now trying to place
a small short term Issue here, but the
financiers have barred their doors and
resolutely refused to give any assist
ance which might prolong the fighting.

William Skelton's Body Is
Found Hanging From
OAKLAND, Feb. B.—The body of Wil
liam Skelton, an 60 years
old, was found hanging from a rafter
this morning in his home at 4132 Tan
ning street. His housekeeper, Mrs.
Mary Flynn, and his friend, John G.
Bell, are being held in detinue at the
city prison pending an investigation
into the case.
It was at first believed that the man
had committed suicide, but later de
velopments unearthed by Inspectors
Hodgklns and Wood led to the arrest
of the man and woman on suspicion
of having been implicated in the death.
This was due principally to the con
flicting stories told by the pair and
to the fact that Bell says he did not
go to the Skelton house until 10 o'clock
this morning, whereas neighbors said
he was seen there as early as 7 o'clock.
The body of Skelton Was found about
10 o'clock.
According to Lieutenant William F.
Woods of the Melrofie police station
Mrs. Flynn was partially under the In
fluence of liquor when taken Into cus
tody. Inspector Hodgklns obtained a
statement from her. He said he was
not satisfied with the stories told by
Mrs. Flynn and Sell and Would hold
them until a more thorough Investiga
tion had been made.
Bell, who is a miner, Is 56 years Old,
and Mrs. Flynn Is 38 years of age. She
has been in the Skeltqn household for
a number of years and Bell was a
constant visitor at the house.
That Skelton mortgaged his place
for $500 a day or two ago was dis
covered by the detectives this evening.
No trace of the money has been found.
Bell admitted that he had some Interest
In having Skelton borrow the money,
and said that he had helped to influ
ence him to obtain the loan, which
loan was made by S. S. Austin, Liese
avenue and the Foothill boulevard.
The police said that Bell served a
term In Nevada for shooting a man In
1886. He is now on probation from
Judge Samuels' court for petty larceny.
