London, Nov74. There is a dls
fetch from Constantinople that the
lurks have turned to the powers with
a admission that they have beea
beaten and a plea for mediation. This
application Is said to have been made
to the foreign ambassadors In Con
stantinople and to the powers through

In the meantime the 'powers recog

The third British battleship, squad

of Nokopollfl, which look down on the
Turkish fortress. The Turkish gar

some 400. A Turkish torpedo boat In
the Gulf of Arta was burned.
It la stat6d that the Turks lost 20,

Correspondent Declares the Rout of
the Ottomans Was AppaWno.
London, Nov. 4. The correspondent
cl the Dally Chronicle, writing from
Ohorlu on Nov. 1, confirms the pre
vious reports of the defeat of the
Turks in the big battle with tho Bui
eurlans, which he says was "Irretriev
able, terrlblu and appalling:" He says
it was followed by a rout "scarcely
paralleled In history," Forty thousand
of the Turkish troops, says tho corre
spondent, havo fallen, and 76 per cent
of the artillery was captured. Abdul
lah Pasha had a narrow escape from
capture. The army found Its way
back to Chorlu by handfuls. The
Bulgarian artillery mowed down thou
sands of Turka during the battle. Tho
Bulgarian artillery was much superior
to that of tlio Turks.
It appears that I lie Bulgarians had
4 bad quarter of an hoar's battle after
rapturing the town of Lule Burgas.
They advanced from the railroad sta
tion, a distance of four miles, and
durlngrthls time passed through de
pression between the hills.' Here the
Bulgarians were tremendously mauled
by Turkish shrapnel from the heights
above, and when the confusion among
them Was at the worst, Turkish cav--hy
dashed from concealment and,
shouting "Allah!. Allah!" swept llko a
tornado on the- remnant of the Bul
garians, who fled with the cavalry
pursuing and riding them down. But
the Turkish cavalry rode too far and
came within range of the "Bulgarian
machine guns, which brought horses
and riders to the ground la a lorn
and mantled masB, from which few
issued alive.

Chicago,1 Nov. 4. Charles Nowton
Kramer, whose stage name is Con
way, circus clown, acrobat and high
diver, and who confessed to having
killed Miss Sophia Gertrude Singer of
Baltimore, ISA., it Is expected, will re
peat his tragic story of the murder
when, the coroner's inquest over the
body of the victim Is resumed. Mrs.
Kramer, who gave the police the first
definite information that her husband
had killed Miss Singer, also will tes
tify, with a number of other wit
nesses. In tho meantime Kramer and
his wlfo are being held without bail.
Kramer's demeanor remains the
same as when he first was taken Into
custody. He insiBta that he killed tho
woman In self-defense and professes

His explanation of this is that' his
wife asked him to get the clothesline
fo she might dry some clothes in
their room.
Kramer and his wife met in Police
Captain Nootbanr's- private office for
a few moments. They greeted each
other affectionately.
"I told tho police that you had noth
ing to do with the murder," Kramer
said to his wife. "I alone am to blams

Kramer's Story.
Kramer, whoso stage name la Con

ment made by his wife, Beatrice
RywlHCramer, known on tho variety
stajje as the "burlesque queen." He
said that he knocked Miss Sinker

tacked him' with razor, after he had
rebuked her for making, he said, a
suggestion to Mrs. Kramer to go but
and meet some men. Kroner exoner
ated his wlfo from all blame In con
nection with tho crime.
He said that he never meant to kill
Miss Singer and that ho bound and
gagged her to prevent her making an
outcry. Hesald that he took $35
