No. 112 POWERS ARE UNABLE TO AGREE ON A POUCY IN THEBALKANS En gland, France and Russia- Willing to Mow the Balkan States to Annex the Territory Conquered London, Nov. 5.—The great powers are aligning themselves on either si.le of a very sharp line regarding the fu ture of the Balkan etates. Public opinion In England, Prance and Russia Is that the allies should have the terri tory conquered and Russia has warn ed Turkey that conditions will only become worse should further disaster occur at Tchatalja. The other side, Austria-Hungary, Germany, Italy and Austria, which are the nearest neigh bors of the Balkan states, will not, it is believed, sit quietly watching «he Balkan league establish itself across her patch to the Aegean sea in which direction her trade is expanding, while at the same time, the Servians spread to the Adriatic. The Austrian government points out that the Albanians are as much a na tion as any of the allies and Albania should be reserved for the Albanians. A dispatch from Belgrade says that Servia, first claiming 20 miles of Adriatic coast, now wants 60 miles and in return Montenegro is to get more than her allotment of the district of Novipazar. In the meantime Bulgarian troops in the vicinity of Tchorlu are préparas to resume their advance on Tchatalja. The Bulgarian army near Tchorlu is being reinforced by troops from the in vesting force around Adrlunople, whose places are taken by Servians, it is officially stated in a dispatch from Belgrade that the Servians who have annihilated the Turkish army in Macedonia, have been ordered to assist the Bulgarians, Greeks and Montene grins. The sultan's soldiers are in bad con dition. Besides the host of wounded thousands, men have dropped out of the ranks exhausted from want of food, and most of these threw away their rifles. It is reported today that the Greeks made a premature attack on Saloniki and were repulsed. A combined attack by Greeks, Bul garians and Servians is expected shortly. The water supply at Constantinople was cut off today by a large Bul garian force at the end of the aque duct, according to a dispatch from Sofia. Powers Have Not Replied. Constantinople, Nov. 6.—None of the powers have yet replied to the Porte s request for mediation. The belief Is held here that King Ferdinand will not be sorry to accept European Interven tion. as It is considered that, after its tremendous sacrifices, the Bulgarian army must be nearly exhausted. Abdulah Pasha, commander of the Turkish eastern army, Is still at Tcherkesskeui, and at noon yesterday a Turkish detachment destroyed an im portant railway bridge at Tchorlu. It now becomes clear that the de ficient commissariat was largely re sponsible for the Turkish reverses. Turkish plans aimed at encircling the Bulgarian forces by an advance on the right wing. The Bulgarian general concentrated his efforts on the Turkish center at Serai Rod the left wing along the railway. The Turks were meeting With much success, but the commis sariat broke down completely on ac count of bad roads and preventing land ing operations at the Turkish base. Mldla. As a consequence Mahmoud Mukhtar Pasha, commanding the right, was com pelled to sacrifice the advantage gained because his troops were without food throughout the day. 8ultan Himself Deceived. All preparations have been com pleted for the heir-apparent to pro ceed to the Turkish headquarttrs ac companied by Ghazi Ahamed Mukh tar Pasha, the late grand vizier, but they have not started. It 1s asserted that the sultan him self was deceived by Nazim Pasha's optimistic reports and only realized tbs true situation when an English erulser brought the latest news, which was conveyed to the Porte by the British ambassador. The Porte then aaked the powers to intervene. The difficulty in maintaining order Is increasing. It is said that a mob went to the war office at Stamboul and asked for weapons with which to nt tack the Christians, and this was the reason Kikalmil Pasha asked tho am bassadors to have warships at hand. • • ••••••••••••• No Attack on Martin.
