LO\DO\, .Inly 11. — The kins of
Ttoumanin has rtec-lared- yvnr on Bul-
Carln. The Roumanian minister in
Soflln has been recalled. The Sofia
(orreKpnnilonl of the Time* sends this
announcement- tbix morning.
LONDON', July 11.— Humors were
published In Berlin yesterday, and.
according: to the Daily Telegraph's cor
respondent In Athens, were current
there that General Tvanof,'. with 50,000
(Bulgarians, was force 1 to surrender
near Demirhissar, where flsrhtins? was
proceeding for the possession of a rail
way bridge over the Struma river.
A later Athens dispatch to the Tele :
graph says.no confirmation was ob
tained, and an official report issued
in the Greek capital, although it men
tions the Dcmtrh!ssar fighting. says
nothing: of the surrender."'
The correspondent adds' that unless
M Xatchevitch consents immediately to
evacuation, the porte will, after 24
hours' notice, order the Ottoman troops
to drive out the Bulgarians.
ItflinVMA AFTER lAM) ,
It is expected that Roumania's first
step will be the occupation of the ;
2,500 square miles of territory which
she claims from Bulgaria as compen
sation for her neutrality in the late
war. This strip extends from Turtukai
to Baltchik on the Black sea and in
cludes the city of Silisiria.
The end of a fortnight's desperate
fighting finds Bulgaria , forced to appeal
to the powers to arrange peace. The
Bulgarian plan .to drive .a .. wedge be
tween the Greek and Servian armies
near Guevgheli has failed completely.
The last reports of the fighting re
ceived from Athens show that the Serv
ians and Greeks at this point are com
bining their forces, while the Rouma
nian army is beginning an invasion of
Bulgaria,
The latter fact doubtless was the de- I
ciding factor In the Bulgarian appeal j
to the powers. How far Bulgaria's j
defeat is due to dissensions in high
military quarters, which resulted in the
resignation of General Savon", and how
far?, to the fact that the Bulgarian
1 ■ nope, which bore the brunt of the
hard fighting In the last campaign,
v "re more exhausted than the Greek
end Servian forces probably never will
be known.
nOUMAMA IN'VASIOX. UPSETS PI,A\
Nothing can be predicted at the mo
rent as to how events will shape
themselves, the Roumanian . invasion •of
Bulgaria having brought an entirely
new factor into the problem. "Russia
and France are devoting their efforts
to persuading the allies to adopt a
moderate attitude to facilitate a peace
ful settlement.
The Servian premier is quoted in the
Vienna Neve Frele Presse as declar
ing that the new war has completely ;
pet aside all treaties of alliance and
that peace must now be negotiated on
an entirely new basis.
Bulgars Trapped in Passes
ATHENS, July 10.—Official dispatches
report that continued pursuit of the
Bulgarians and a desperate battle in
the passes of Mount Belissi and on
the road from Doiran to Strumitza, re
f-ulted in complete victory for the
Greeks and the rout of the Bulgarians.
The capture of these passes was a
disaster for the Bulgarians because it
enabled the Greeks to attack the rear
of the Bulgarian fourth army corps,
which had Its front fortified against
the Servians. The Bulgarians hastily
abandoned their fortified positions In i
front of Istip and fled headlong from
the furious assault of the Greek in
fantry, which captured nine guns. The
Greeks pursued the enemy unchecked
3"- far as Strumitza. ;-
On the extreme left the Greeks today
attacked the Bulgarians near Demir
hizzar.
Greek Fleet Takes Kavala
ATHENS. Greece, July 10. —A Greek
naval force today occupied the seaport
of Kavala on the Aegean sea, hitherto
In • hands of the Bulgarians.

COLONISTS CHOOSE
CALIFORNIA LANDS
Norwegian Farmers - ; May
Settle on Tract in Solano :
. Irrigation Area
After two years" search, throughout
the west for lands upon which to lo
cate a Norwegian farmers" colony, two
bishops of the Norwegian Evangelical
Lutheran church have-found in Cali
fornia -what they ''were' lookingrforl*;.
• They have. made a tentative choice of
3,000 acres on the . Solano Irrigated
Farms tract and will report favorably
on that ■ selection to ■ A their . principals
in the eh.ureh :in Minneapolis. The
land that fulfills ? all -of their require
ments lies in two parcels, one of which
is now under irrigation and the ; other
will be supplied with water next, year.'
The bishops were shown", ov^er',the
property by A. J. Rich, who, upon his
return yesterday, said: ' ". "
'"Should the 'Norwegian colony final
ly locate on Solano farms it will prove
the greatest, stroke of encouragement
possible - for • the '"-; settlement . of ■" Cali
fornia lands. ; That the bishops were
pleased with ■what we had to offer is
further confirmation of the faith of
the enterprising capitalists s who put
their fortunes into the development of
the lands." ' *
;^At ; the .Lutheran synod two 'years
ago the pastors, representing an or
ganization of 500.000 members and ;a
church with 2,500,000 in : the United
States J and Canada, decided to estab
lish a farmers' colony in the ; west,

STATE MAY FIX
RATES BY WATER
Railroad . Commission As
> sumes Jurisdiction Over
Steamship Traffic
That the state :of California has the
power to regulate the \ rates of v steam
ship companies plying over regular
routes from t. one port in California to
another port ;in California !is a~decision
rendered ".yesterday by the state rail
road commission. * . . - .
■;_-*' : The decision extends this power over
'steamshipsv'traversing \- the high sens,
where no port of any other .V state or
nation is touched. ,%. - ' .
This is the first time that "a> ruling
has been ' made v which- proclaims f the
right Aof; a . state to fix rates > for com
merce between , ;. its ports. • .
~y. Since :ISB3 * there lias been "in effect
an I injunction which U prohibited f the
state of California from , exercising this
jurisdiction t which the commission now
i has determined v to endeavor to exer
'. rise. The commission -asserts its be-
Hef that under : the public utilities act
:lt lias the power to regulate the steam
hip rates. - ..' ' !../..•■•
The "issue arose upon the complaint,
if J. H. i Miller and E. : Donaldson
against the Wilmington Transportation
company. Miller and l Donaldson are
engaged in • business in Avalon, ■ Santa
; Catalina ; island. The Wilmington Trans
i portation operates ! i steamships between
! the : port ■of San Pedro on the main land
j and Avalon on Santa Catalina island.
j The complaint was brought ; against
the 'rates /; of the steamship company.
Both ; Av«alon and the port of San Pedro
are in j L.os Angeles .county. ■ ; ;; .:.
The defendant in the case challenges
the jurisdiction of the commission, and
cites language in : previous decisions ;of
the : court declaring that commerce
when * on - the '. high 'seas became "com
merce- with foreign nations" subject ito
I regulation by the national government.
V In its .decision the commission pre
s sents a review of 'the entire question.
The decision states that several
;states,' before admission' into the union,
tpossessed l^ power ;'toj- regulate ■> not ' only
commerce within y their borders, but
:* foreign ;•, commerce.' •;••: The * commission
finds also that all of -the", decisions. 1 of

INTERPRETER IS
FOUND GUILTY
Nicholas Valianos Convict
ed of Taking Money to •
"Fix" Courts
Nicholas Valianos,: former Greek-In
terpreter in San Francisco courts, was
found guilty of grand larceny yester
day afternoon by a jury in Judge I>a\v.
lor's; court which deliberated nearly
seven hours before reaching a verdict.
Valianos [■ was- indicted :on evidence" ob
tained: by the Burns Detective Agency,
being charged with grand larceny in
demanding $140 from Theodore Eliop
olis, for which sum he agreed to "fix"
cases in Police Judge Shortall's court.
■ Through Assistant District Attorney
Cunha, the prosecution built up ' a
strong case against Valianos, despite
the fact that : the complaining witness,
also a Greek, developed a loss of mem
ory regarding - his grand jury testi
mony when > placed upon the stand.
Valianos produced many character wit
nesses, .including; the local Greek coun
sel. He i attempted to prove that the
money took was pay for getting Ell
opolis a job. •
Assistant- District /Attorney Cuhne
made a masterly argument to the jury.
accenting the ■-. fact ; that Valianos was
a friend of his, but having become
certain of ;; his guilt he demanded a
verdict of guilty. Cuhna severely ar
raigned Valianos as a "public, official
who, false ;to his trust, went about
the courts selling out judges and other
public officials." ..'*.-
Valianos spent the night in the
' county j jail. .
was admitted on the same terms as
the : original 13 states, and therefore
possessed equal power with. them.
In conclusion the ; commission cites
the recent decisions of the United
States supreme court, including the
findings in , the Minnesota ' rate cast?,
in which it was stated that the state?
might exercise their , authority in *
given field, even though the national
government possessed, the power to
legislate in that field, if the national
government had failed to assume juris
diction. ' " • / ; ' ; • '
