Galllpoli Peninsula.
Constantinople Reports a Prolonged
Engagement, Which Terminated to
the Turks' Advantage Retreat of
Bulgarian Right Wing and the Burn
ing of the Village of Tchatatja
London, Fob. 6. Important move
ments are proceeding in tbe neighbor
hood of Constantinople, though as yet
thero has been no fighting of conse
quence cither at Tchatalja or Oalli
poll. It looks as though the Dulgars
were carrying out a change of tactics,
but whether this Is on their own in
itiative oris due to some threatening
operation of the Turks is not clear.
A dispatch from Soda says that tho
Bulgarians have abandoned any Im
mediate attempt to capture the Tcha
talja lines and are beginning an Im
portant movement, which is backed
by tbe Greek warships, to capture the
Galllpoli peninsula.
On the other hand, military men at
Constantinople profess that little Is
possible on the peninsula; as tho isth
mus is so narrow that the Turkish
ships in tho Dardanelles and Greek
vessels in tho Gulf of Xeros can shell
either army operating there.
Foreigners nt Constantinople are
expecting a Turkish attempt to land
an army on the northern coast of
Marmora and an attack by the allies
to the westward of Tchatalja.
Tho following official announcement
was issued at Constantinople:
"The enemy, part of whose forcc3
are concentrated to the northeast of
Galllpoli, Bent a. regiment from Kadik
sui' to Kavek, where ' one "of "bur de
tachments is stationed, A prolonged
engagement ensued and terminated to
our advantage. Another forco of tho
enemy adranced and occupied Myro
file, on coast of Marmora, which was
defended by only a few gendarmes."
Tho retreat of tho Bulgarian right
wing and the burning of Tchatalja Is
conllrmed. The retirement Is as
cribed Miere to an intention to check
any Rank movement which the su
Dcriorfeobillty of the Turks, in con
sequence, of their command of the
sea, might enable them to make.
It ts reported that tho IiulgariautJ
destroyed the bridges and culverts
nnd tore up the railroads. Their head
quarters am how at Tchcrkesslwul, 25
miles from Constantinople.

out that the Democratic party is com
siltftd to enact legislation on four big
questions; The tariff, banking and
currency, supplemental laws regulat
ing interstate corporations, and Phil
ippine Independence.
Tor nil practical purposes It has
been deo'dd it-pro shall be no legisla

pieyJdVnt.elert is understood to have
made thr statement recently that he
will not ask cougress' to pass a law
at the special session granting Philip

the pending Jmies bill.
Up to Wilson.
There will be no disagreement be
tween President Wilson ami tho con
grcfssional lenders over tho legisla
tive piosranii He has been assured
that the questions tOt be considered at
tho special session will be limited to
those upon which he recommends na
tion. Tho leader who ndvlsed that the ac
tivities of the hfSBtou be limited to
tho tariff argued thla way: "We aro
pledf.cd to revise the tariff. We have
a big job on our hands. In order to
do it eilirjcntly it is highly essential
that tho attention of our membership
shall he riilted nt nil times to this
particular question."
It Is the opinion of the leaders,
based on th"ir knowledge of the situ
ation and Information that has come
to them from TrCnWn, that President
elect Wllsou will recommend that th
business rr the special session be lim
ited to tariff revision-aud banking and'
curorncy legislation. The president
elect has .made it plain he will not
reach a final conclusion as to the ex
tent of tho legislative program until
he has had an opportunity In, his of
ficial capacity to confer fully with the
Democratic lenders in congress.
The president-elect began work on
