(By indirect route via Odessa, Russia)-*-The bombardment of this city by the Bulgarians began again on Friday and continued today from the south and west. In the afternoon it stopped and iShukri Pasha, the military commander had placards posted all over the city announcing the victory of the gar rison, which had repulsed the Bulgarian attacking force around Maras and had driven the besiegers a considerable distance into the surrounding country. This is the first dispatch sent by any correspondent with the besieged Turkish garrison of Adnanopk. Bulgarian' sU"»,^ 1 ralnlng à shower of pro- i parts. Nov. 11.—A graphic rescrip tion of the storming by the Bulgarians of two Turkish forts at Kartaltepe and Papaztepe, Adrianople has been for warded by the correspondent of the Matin. The operations began at day break Thursday. The Bulgarian In fantry advanced under cover of a mur derous fire of shrapnel. The Turks ral lied from the forts for a counter at tack. The opened. Are Jeetiles on the Turkish lines moment fresh companies ol marched out from the city and forts toward the Bulgarians who drew the j lines closer about the forts. The ac- ; curate Are of the Bulgarians began to I tell at lop clock lit the morning, when . the guns in Fort Kartaltepe began to slacken their reply. Every ' Turks 1 P ' i The Turkish infuntry meanwhile re sisted the stubborn Bulgarian advance but their lines wavered and when the command, "Fix bayonets" rang out from the Bulgarians and the Infantry dashed forward cheering wildly , the Turks bruke and ran toward the city. About noon the Bulgarian colors flut t< red up over Fort Kartaltepe. The Bulgarian troops then divided Into three columns which made very slow progress and the fortunes of the day seemed uncertain. Nightfall found the armies still Aghtlng. In the dense darkness a long dazzling ray of light shot across from one of the crests held by the Bulgarians, bringing Papaztepe clearly into view. Then from the fort another brilliant ray shot out. Cannon and rifle Are grew more brisk. Searchlights played above the combatants. The roar of the eiege and Aeld guns dominated the rifle volleys and the screeching of shells Arcd from Papaztepe fort be gan to Blöcken. Abruptly the search lights were extinguished about 11 o'clock at night and the Bulgarian In fantry began to storm the fort at the point of bayonets. Shortly before mid night the Turks took to flight, leav ing dead and dying by the hundreds on the Aeld. Throughout the operations Bulgarian aeroplanes flew back and forth over the Turkish forts bringing Information to the Bulgarian com manders. Asiatic Turks Deceived. Some Interesting sidelights on the war are telegraphed by the correspond ent of the Matin who had nn opportun ity of talking with some Turkish pris oners in the hgnds of the Bulgarians. Many of them had rome from Asia and never before had heard of Bulgaria. When the cause of the war was ex plained to them, one said: ''We knew nothing of that at Brusa (in Asia Mi nor) where we were recruited. We were told that, according to the law of the prophet, we must go to Aght in fidels and that the hour to exterminate them had arrived. We were told that Allah had promised us victory and the Turttlsh governors declared we should divide among us the Immense riches of the enemies of Allah. We have, therefore, been deceived." The presence of foreign warships in the Dardandelles provokes vnrious amusing comments from the Turks. One patriot called on the French am bassador to thank him for the fact that the French government had sent tha Leon Gambetta Instead of another vessel. ''We understand." he said, "the dallcate attention this implies and the encouragement you mean to give us for Oambetta stands as a type ot statesman of national defense." ''What.'' asked one resident of Con stantinople of another, pointing to the Bosphorus, "are all those foreign war ships?" "Those," replied the other gravely, "are ships we have taken from the Greeks." Powers Ara Agrssd. Paris. Nov. 11.—The great powers. Great Britain, France and Russia, con stituting the triple entente, and Ger many, Austria and Italy, the triple alliance, are believed 'to be at the point of reaching an agreement to prevent the Bulgarian army from entering Constantinople. The six governments And themselves In accord on the principle, and active negotiations are in progress as to tha | j means to b« taken to bring about this result. One suggestion Is a collective provi sional occupation of Constantinople by the six powers with the consent of Turkey, under the assumption that such action was necessary' to protect the subjects of the respective nations and to maintain order. The Bulgarian government appears already to have Indicated that it has 1 no intention of trying to hold Constan i »mople and that it would rather de j Ration mYght ; eertainly during the long discus I lo ° e(llng a peace settlement and . woul( j ren( j er a permanent agreement _,i, .„.h hv the Enronean ' cupy the Turkish capital only until 1 P eace had ljeen arranged. i This, it Is said, Is not satisfactory to the powers. It is pointed out that such of more dlfAcult to reach by the European conference. It Is considered essential for the great international interests that Constanti nople, the Dardanelles and a narrow zone in European Turkey be retained by the Turks. Servians Ar« Advancing. Belgrade, Nov. 11.—Dibra, 45 miles southwest of Prlsrend, In Albania, was taken by the Servians Saturday after severe Aghtlng, according to private advices. The remnants of the Turkish army had assembled there. The same reports say that Monastlr has surren dered. Major Popovich, in command of the Servians, has captured Dajran, with 1000 troops. A third Servian army is well on Its way toward the Adriatic, but progress is slow on ac count of the bad roads. It Is expected that Durazzo will be taken in a day or two. Durazzo is one of the ports that Servia has announced her Intention of seizing and holding. This determination to occupy one or more Adriatic ports against the wishes of Austria Is absolutely earnest. All political parties have announced their readiness to support the government, come what may. The politicians are convinced that the powers, including Germany, will be able to convince Aus tria-Hungary that Servia, with an out let on the Adriatic, will not be more dangerous to her than without such an outlet. Servia desires peaceful economical development. Political leaders say there need be no fear that Borne other power will become master of the port; Servia sheds her blood for her own interests, not for others. Will Prevent a Massacre. Vienna, Nov. 11.—The correspondent of the Relchspost at Bulgarian head quarters says: "The Bulgarian attack on the Tchat alja line Is progressing successfully, Further points on the Turkish outpost lines have been captured. "The decisive attack will be made with such force that the Bulgarians will reach the gates of Constantinople simultaneously with the fleeing Turkish troops. • By the Immediate occupation of the capital they will prevent diplo matic misunderstandings and a mas sacre." The Relchspost contradicts the re port that common action at Belgrade by the Austrian, German and Italian ministers is intended. It says Austria will continue to treat the Servian de mands with good will and calmness. Tire monarchy is trying to preservo Albania's freedom and In this has the support of all the allies. The assur ance that Servia would not fortify her new harbor give little surety, and adds the paper, "Servla'a passage through Albania cannot be conceded." The Socialist labor party held a monster mass meeting yesterday to protest against the war. Camp* for Prisoner«. Athens, Nov. 11.—Since the fall of Saloniki, the Greek troops havs been occupied In erecting camps for the 25. 000 Turkish prisoners, supposedly In Fort Karaburn. Saturday two battal ions of Greek Highlanders replaced the garrison. The full division of the Greek army, headed by Crown Prince Constantine, entered Saloniki yesterday and march (Continued en Pegs Three » 'S™ dura» WAR HAÏ RESULT London, Nov. 11.—Europe la facing one of the moat critical weeks In her history. It may end In a war in which the whole continent will be involved, or It may be remembered as a week in which diplomacy succeeded in solving problems that ap peared insoluble to many. On one side of the Balkan penin sula there is an acute conflict between the aides of Austria Hungary and Servia, which, If it is not arranged, might start a general European outbreak. On the other side, King Ferdinand's Bulgarian army is on the point of entering Constantinople and that will be resented by Russia. The existing Jealousies are so intense that It will take much pressure to Induce either Aus tria or Servia to recede ' from Its demands. Austria, in fact, takes so seriously the advance of a Servian force toward the Port of Durazzo that she has dispatched a steamer there to take off Austrian residents when the Servian troops arrive. Russia, also, is preparing for. eventualities. Beside keeping her time expired men in the army she Is mobilizing her forces. At Sebastopol trans ports have been prepared to convey Russian troops across the Black sea and her arsenals and commissary departments are working day and night.

TRYING TO SOLVE THE NYSTERY OF HEADLESS WOMAN is j Providence. Nov. 11.—In the trial of ] Henri Deslovers, which was begun in i the superior court here today, the au- ' at'thoritles hope to solve the mstery of j the "headless woman" murder which has remained unsolved for nearly six i I months. On June 25 last sonie work-| men discovered the headless body of j a woman tied with rope and weighted ] with rocks floating in the Blackstone ; river near Woonsocket. Every effort j *® ' h * missing head, without which ; Î positive identification was almost im ! possible, proved futile. j I Investigation led to the conclusion j tliat the body was that of Angelo Del marle, who had' disappeared mysteri ously shortly before the nude body was found floating In the river. As a result i of these investigations the man Des- | lovers, a Franco-Belglan yarn spinner ' with whom the Delmarle woman lived, was taken into custody a few days after ; the Andlng of the body. He pleaded not j guilty, but at a hearing on July 27 | he was held without ball for trial. It was the supposition of the police | that the murder of the woman had i been committed somewhere in Woon- I socket and the dismembered remains | carried to the river and sunk. But the mystery as to the place of the crime remains as dark as that relating to the disposition of the woman's head. So far as Is known the only tangible evi dence connecting Deslovers with the murder is that h« was seen to be walk ing toward the river with the woman on the night that she is supposed to have met her death. Detectives specially employed by Governor Pothier to work on the case recently arrested Mr. and Mrs. Desire Oapert, who lived in the Deslovers' home at the time of the disappearance of Mrs. Delmarle. Both protest their Innocence, declaring that they know i baolUtely nothing of the circumstances surrounding the movements of the vic tim of the murder before ehe left her boms.

The report of President Samuel Gompers was a thorough and volumin ous review of the work of the organi zation for the past year, particularly with regard to legislation endorsed and supported by the federation. Discus sing the growth of the federation, Mr. Gompers' report set forth that during the year ending Sept. 80, 1912, 260 charters were Issued to labor organi zations affiliating with the federation. "The average membership reported, and upon whom per capita tax was paid by the affiliated organizations to the American Federation of Labor dur ing the past year," said the report, "was 1.770,145, an increase over the number reported for 1911 which was 1,761,885. On Sept. SO, 1912, the mem bership of tbs affiliated organizations was 1,841,268." President Gompers reported progress in the organisation of the interna tional labor movement in Canada, and in Porto Rico. In Canada he reported a total membership of from 60,000 to 70,000 In the Trades and Labor con gress, and in Porto Rico he declared 160 unions had been organized with 9000 members. Improved working con ditions were reported In both Canada and Porto Rico. Los Angeles Striks.

In which he Bald: ''The- Los Angeles strike continued for a period covering more than 21 months. At thé" beginning of the Aght organization among the workers of that city was in a deplorable condition. It is generally conceded by those who were on the ground that our Aght for the shorter workday would have been won. had it not been for the deplor able calamity in connection with the destruction of the Los Angeles Times building. Even with this handicap, after the public declaration of labor's position and attitude toward the al leged crime, there was still a chance of winning, up to the time when the guilt of the McNamaras was established by their confession. Then it was recog nized that there was no chance of winning the strike, or persuading the employers to make concessions." After discussing the visit of Carl Legten, secretary of the International Secretariat, to the United States last Bprlng. Mr. Gompers' report recom mended that the American Federation send a representative to the meeting of the Secretariat if one Is held In 1913, and that, If no meeting is held In that year the federation Invite the sec retariat to meet at San Francisco in 1915, during the Panama-PaciAc ex position, either Immediately before or Immediately following the convention of the American Federation.

Indianapolis, Nov. 11.— Ortie B. Me Manigal told at the dynamite conspir acy trial today, further of hia ad ventures as a paid dynamiter. After he blew up a power plant at Mt. Vernon, DU, he said, Herbert S. Hockln told him he had gotten the wrong Job and the executive board would not allow him pay. "A few days later," said McManlgal, "Hockln returned with J. B. McNam ara. McNamara said he had just come from Salt Lake City, where he had blown up the new Utah hotel build ing on April 18. He told me J. E. Munsey, business agent at Salt Lake, had arranged for the explosion and Munsey also had arranged to prove an alibi when the explosions came by go ing to a store and talking to persona there. Showing us a newspaper pic ture of the explosion, McNamara said It had been terrific, and came near blowing the statue of Brigham Young off its pedestal." Op the train going to Cincinnati McManigal said he told McNamara that Hockln was paying $125 for each Job. McNamara said the executive board was allowing 5200 for each Job and Hockln was holding out. Comparing accounts with J. B. and J. J. McNam ara, at headquarters, McManlgal said he found that Hockln had held out $500 on all the jobs done. J. J. said he always suspected Hockln was a double crosser and now he knew it. He said he was going to tell President Ryan about It. Tried to Avert Murder. Indianapolis, Nov. 11.—Conscience so overcame Ortie McManlgal when he blew up a "job" at Mount Vernon, 111., on April 19, 1910, that he was on the verge of quitting and exposing the Mc Namara dynamite plots Ave months before the loss of 21 lives at Los An geles, Cal. McManlgal, who today continued his testimony at the trial of the 45 accused "dynamite plotters," says in a written confession, part of which has been made public by District Attorney Miller, that twice while prowling about at night with bombs under his arm he had to employ skill in saving the lives ot nlghtwatchmen. The Incidents relative to the Mount Vernon explosion as given by McManigal are: He went to Mount Vernon by way of St. Louis, equipped with bombs pro vided by John J. McNamara, who had instructed him to blow up a new steel structure In Mount Vernon being erected by non-union men. First regu lating the time-piece so the bomb would explode at 11:30 p. m., McMani gal placed it where he considered it would do the most damage. Later he discovered the bomb was almost di rectly beneath the night watchman's shelter and the watchman was on duty. McManlgal walked about on the op posite side of the post. He observed the watchman seldom left his post and must Inevitably be blown up unless he could be got away. Engaging the watchman In conversation he attempted to Induce him to go to a theater, but it was of no use. The watchman re garded the invitation with suspicion. In desperation the dynamiter returned to his hotel, prepared a amaller bomb timed to explode at about 11:25 o'clock and sneaking through an alley, placed the second bomb at a remote part of the job. The purpose, McManlgal says, was by the remoter bomb, timed to ex plode about Ave minutes before the other, to detract the watchman from his shelter, so he would be at the wreck of the explosion and out of danger when the second occurred. During the Interval, McManlgal paced the streets in apprehension lest hia plans should miscarry, but it had the desired effect and on seeing the watch man walking about after both explo sions he took a train for St. Louis. While looking In company with J. B. McNamara for a spot to place a bomb on a Job In South Chicago at night on Feb. 24, 1911, McManlgal says In hia confession, he and McNamara decided the only point where a watchman us ually was posted. McNamara, accord ing to McManlgal, was in favor of dis regarding the watchman, saying: "If the watchman is blown up that will at tract attention" McManigal says he protested and Anally induced McNamara to daclds M another spot.
