Turks Refuse Terms of Allies; Peace Hopes Shattered.
Constantinople, Nov. 2!.- The Ottoman government linn rej-etd
terms offered by the allied Italkan nations.

resume "- iih.

cording to the Tt.. ,1 vUler, and if they are Insisted on the
war will continue, lie m. this statement to tin correspondent of the
Dally Mall &' Constantinople today. Kiamil Pasha said:
*T received last night cotumunleatlon through the IBisslau ambassa
dor to Turkey of the terms whl h tin Bulgarians suggest for an urrnlstieo
as a preliminary to the discussion ol Jeace. The terms are impossible
and unless they are radically altered tin- war will continue.
“The Bulgarians ask for the surrender of Adrlnnople, Scutari. Ju
ntas and the TchatulJa lines."
The only hope of peace, tin* correspondent adds, now seems to lie In
the fact that these demands of the allies probably were determined upon
before the unsuccessful attacks were made by the Bulgarians on the
TchatulJa lines during the first three days of this week.
There has been much talk of a European conference as soon as hos
tilities fr tho discussion f International questions arising uto of tin- war.
Sir Kdward Grey, the British frclgn minister, liwever. announced to
day in the house of commons that the quest ion whether 11 conference
should or should not he held hnd not been definitely considered by the
European powers.
The Bulgarian losses In dead and wounded during the fighting at
TchatulJa total 8,000, according to official ndvlccs telegraphed by a
special correspondent from Constantinople todav. Terrific damage was
done to the Ilulgarlnn column which attacked the Turkish left wing,
particularly by the shells from the Turkish warships. One of these fell
on s Bulgarian ammunition tralu, which exploded, resulting In great loss
of life.
CHOLERA VICTIMS IN TURKISH

DEAD AND DYING LINE HOURS
Constantinople. Nov. 21. llenrt
rending scenes of suffering mid mis
ery nr** enact'd dally at tin* Turk
ish Cholera camp at Kan Stefano. The
correspondent of the Associated Pre s
accompanied by the secretary of a
foreign embassy ami Major Clyde S.
Ford. 17. 8. A., who Is hcr«* on leave
of absence, paid a visit here today.
A nauseating picture wn* witness
ed at the side of the railroads. The
bodies which hud been thrown from
the trains lay ns they had fallen.
Some hnd struck on top of the em
bankment: others bad rolled part o'
the way down- und some hail reached
the bottom. Some of the corpses lay 1
stiffly along. Others were In groups I
of threes and fours.
Around a one story stable at the!
foot of the embankments was a group :
of sixty dead lying close together tut
the slopes of a manure pile which the j
sick men had found softer than the I
hard ground. One man on top of the
pile was dlgeing with Ills fingers a J
sort of trough in which to He. The
trough soon heennie Ills grave.
A group of tents stood In the cen-1
ter w here four or five Turkish sol-1
dlcrs wearing the nrmpleco of tin*
Red Crescent stood on guard. Inside
the sick and dead lay In groups. Tho
doctors on duty counted 22 patients
In one tent, while double that num
ber lay outside sheltered from the
wind by the canvass. Some of the
stricken men found difficulty 111 get"
ting Into the Moslem position for
prayer looking toward the east. One
praying victim was ho weak that he
could not replace his blanket around
hla head when the wind blew it off.
A water cart drawn by a donkey
passed along the road. Those of the
victims who were able to rise to their
feet went unassisted toward it and
stuggled feebly for a drink. Those
unable to rise got none.
In a similar way what appeared to
be army bread was distributed to
those able to reach the place of dis
tribution.
Several of the sick men raised
themselves with difficulty and stum
bled toward a well, from which they
tried to dip water with their long
saßhes. wetting the ends and moisten
ing their parched mouths with them.
There were hundreds of dead and
thousands of sick In this camp, many
of them lying on the open ground
and great numbers supporting their
backs against the houses bordering
tho open fields, most, of which were
deserted.
Nnxim Pasha, the Turkish coni
ntnner In chief, in a telegram to the
Ottoman war office today, says:
“According to reports just receiv
ed. Tuklsh reconuoltcrlng parties
have confirmed the report that the
enemy abandoned the trenches held
during the Inst three days raring the
line of forts In tho rone which they
had occupied. The Bulgarians have
fallen back at certain points ns much
ns four and a half miles from the
Turkish lines. A number of wounded
and many dead bodies were found 111
the Bulgarian trenches, besides rifles, 1
ammunition and oilier equipment.” |
The sound of heavy firing, pro-1 i
sumably from naval guns, was again
audible today..

I It appears, according to this cor- '

The Turkish losses here have been
