Appeal Most Be Made Direct to Allies
in Order to Secure Peace—Sortie
From Adrianople
Constantinople, Nov. 13.—There is good reason to be
lieve that the Turkish government has decided to nego
tiate directly with the Balkan allies, as mediation by thv
powers seems fruitless.
Sofia, Nov. 13.—A desperate sortie was made by the
Turkish garrison at Adrianbple yesterday, according to a
newspaper dispatch. After five hours' fighting the Turks
were driven back by the Bulgarian besiegers.
St. Petersburg, Nov. 13.—The Turkish council of war
has decided that the position of the army in Constanti
nople is hopeless, says a dispatch from the Turkish
London, Nov. 13.—More hopeful
feeling prevailed today In regard to the
International situation created by the
Balkan war. Servla, however, has not
replied to the Austrian suggestion that
Servian occupation of Albanian terri
tory or a port on the Adriatic sea
would not be tolerated. At the same
time the Servian army continues Its
march toward the Adriatic coast and
In one report from Belgrade is said t>
actually have reached Durazzo. Turkey
is now ill better position to ask for an
armistice, as It is understood strong
reinforcements of fresh troops have
reached Tchatalja, and might hold out
lor days If not for weeks. Advance
news from that quarter suggests that
the Bulgarian army Is not tvalklng
over the Turkish fortifications as It
was reported to do.
Little jealousies among the Balkan
allies have cropped out again at Salo
niki. The Bulgarians, who followed
the Greeks into the city, telegraphed
King Ferdlnald that the town was now
under his scepter. These incidents are
arousing the Ire of the Greeks, who
have called out the national guards of
the class of 1896-1897, Indicating that
they expect the fighting to continue
Borne time yet.
A letter received In London says the
condition of the Turkish wounded in
Constantinople Is fearful. The Turk
ish government has lost control of the
city and seems helpless.
From the accounts ôi correspond
ents on the Bulgarian side their
wounded are in just as bad condition
as the Turks. One correspondent, in
describing the poor ambjtlance service
of the Bulgarians, whose wounded are
driven for miles in jolting oxcarts,
says this is not the worst part of their
suffering. He continues: "After sev
eral battles the wounded were left ly
ing on the bare fields, where they had
fallen for two or three hot days and
bitterly cold nights and the worst
sights In the hospitals are the rows of
poor fellows with swollen and gan
grened limbs for whom there Is no
hope of recovery."
The correspondent adds that many
are dying from exposure and not from
wounds. An "Old Turk" writing to the
newspapers to deplore the defeat of his
country, says It would not have hap
pened had Abdul Hamid been retained
on the throne. He continued: "Our
true sultan has now returned to the
city of the faithful and this fact has
caused a greater sensation In the Otto
man empire than all/ the reverses our
troops have suffered." He predicts
that Abdul Hamid within a few
weeks will be restored to the throne
in Constantinople and owing to the
dissensions of the powers, part of the
Turkish empire will be saved to her.
Dearth of News.
London, Nov. 13.—There Is no news
either from Sofia or Constantinople as
to how the great battle at Tchatalja is
going. The silence may Imply that the
Turks are making a better defense
than had been expected. On the other
hand, it Is rumored that Turkey is
asking Bulgaria to arrange an armis

Servians and Greeks have not yet
reached Monastir, where, it la reported.
All Rlsa Pasha, the former Turitish
minister of war, has 60,000 troops pre
pared to offer a vigorous resistance.
The Montenegrins have suffered a set
back In their prolonged efforts to cap
ture Scutari, largely because of the
defection of the Malisorl tribes, who
demand guarantees of Albanian Inde
pendence. The Greek advance toward
Janina also appears to be retarded. It

Washington, Nov. 13.—President
elect Wilson's statement that he In
tends to have an "dpen door" at the
White House so far as possible,
aroused discussion today as to the ex
tent a president should admit persons
to his private quarters. The presi
dent's quarters at the White House
adjoining the executive mansion are
now comparatively easy of access for
persons with business there, or who
are introduced as visitors within the
regular receiving hours, but ordinary
visitors are politely told by guards at
the door that the offices are "for busi
ness only."
President Cleveland came into office
with the announced purpose of trans
acting public business "behind glass
doors," but he found the accommoda
tions at the White House not well
fitted for such arrangements. An
hour or two Is given now by the presi
dent almost every day, except In times
of pressing business, to shaking hands
with visitors and President Taft and
his predecessors have maintained fair,
ly free relations with the public dur.
Ing reception hours, except for an
outer guard that protects the execu
tive against undesirable persons.
Visitors to the president during bus
Iness hours now pass the scrutiny of
the doorkeeper and the president's
private secretary.

Miss Jessie Wilson.
Seagirt, N. J., Nor. 11.—Quiet, cul
tured, purposeful—that's the shortest
description of the three daughters of
Woodrow Wilson who on March next
will take up their residence In the
White House.
They are not social butterflies;
their hearts are in wider and more
comprehensive things than those in
cluded In the term society. Their
Interests are in such fields as music,
art and social settlement work. As
their mother puts It:
I am sure that we will be able to
keep up our end and play the social
game at Washington, but our hearts
will not be In It."
Miss Jessie, the youngest of the
daughters, 22. has been a social worker
In the mill districts of Philadelphia.

student in the Academy of Fine Arts

Washington, Nov. 13.—The return
of Democratic senators and represen
tatives Is bringing out a renewal of
cabinet discussions, although the talk
still Is wholly conjectural, nothing
having come from Mr. Wilson to Indi
cate liis line of action.
Incoming Democratic statesmen
predict that In filling his cabinet,
Governor Wilson will give one place to
New York, another to New England,
and a third to Ohio or one of the
other states of the middle west.
It Is the view In congressional cir
cles that at least two of the seats
at the cabinet table will be assigned
to the south, that one will go to the
Pacific coaRt and another to the states

Thus each has her mind bent on a
positive thing. It is the natural de
velopment of the life which has sur
rounded them during their father's
presidency at Princeton and during
their own college days. It Is safe to
conclude that the silly frivolities of
the Washington Nfe can have no
charms for them.
Yet one must not conclude that dur
ing the regime of the Wilson family
the social life will suffer. It Is said of
them that in their quiet way they

In the Princeton set. Of course,

Trenton. N. J.. Nov, 13.—Mias Myers
and Cuthbert were held here today for
Philadelphia officers as the shooting
took place In Pennsylvania.
Cuthbert made the following state
ment to the captain of police: "Just
before we arrived at Bristol, I heard a
woman scream. I asked the porter the
cause for the scream and he informed
me that eotne one was sick, but the
continued screaming impelled me to
go Into the smoker, where I found a
young lady crying for aomeone to bring

fered my services. There were a cou

In her daughter's lap. The daughter
told me that the porter took the re
