phia G. Singer, no trace of the couple
had been found early today. Conway,
the detectives learned, was reared at

gist said she left his store ut 9:30 af
ter writing several postal cards.
Police Captain Nootbaar, conducting
the Inquiry, said:
"Our Information la the Conways
are desperately poor. Conway mdy
hove become crazed with the pain and
knowledge that he could not afford ad
ditional treatment for hla Injured leg.
Perzons who lived In the house told of
violent outbreaks by Conway when lie
terrorized the household. If robbery
was the motive crime the murderer
was disappointed. Worthen tells is
Miss Singer left her jewelry In a box
at home." *

Result Is Being Withheld
London, Oct. 30.—A big battle, perhaps the decisivo
one of the war, is proceeding somewhere on the line from
Constantinople to Adrianople between the Turkish and
Bulgarian armies ancT there is fierce fighting also around
Adrianople. Beyond the fact that the clash has come the
general staffs of the armies are keeping the outside world ■
ignorant as to how things are going with them. No news
has come from the scene except a dispatch from Nazim
Pasha saying the position was favorable to the Turks.
The Bulgarian troops have suffered a check, accord
ing to Adrianople dispatches. Sofia reports the arrival
there of many wounded from the front and it is announced}
that the Bulgarian plans of storming the great fortress
have been postponed until reinforcements arrive. Rumors
that Bulgarian troops have reached the sea are uncon
firmed.
Zekki Pasha is gathering the remnants of the army at
Monastir to meet the advancing Servians and the allied I
Bulgarian column. Turkish troops defeated by the
Servians and Montenegrins in the district of Novi-Pazar
are arriving by the thousands in Bosnia, having crossed
the frontier.
