An extraordinary series of dis patches from Nazim Pasha, the Turk ish commander-in-chief, claiming that he had recaptured Bunarhissar ind was still holding his own against he Bulgarian advance, were pub lished in Constantinople today. In the absence of independent estimony, however, various assupt ions as to the accuracy of the tele jrams are possible. They may be >elated dispatches relating to earlier ;tages of the struggle. On the other hand they may nean hat the Bulgarian victory vas not so complete as indicated in he Sofia dispatches. Excep’ for the general statement hat the Turks are retreating toward 'hataldja, fighting rear guard ac tions, no details of the battle are orihcoming from Sofia tonight.

Diplomatic activity toward peace still continues in European capitals but the Balkan allies seem ill-dis oosed oward any European interfer ference. An interesting feature of the news oday was the brilliant exploit of a Ireek torpedo boat in sinking a Turkish battle-hip near Saloniki. SPECIAL ELECTION RETURNS.
