TURKISH ARMY FLEEING. Germany and Austna Announced ney Wouldn't Intervene Unless They Re ceived Formal Request from One of the Belligerents in Balkan War. London, Nov. 4. The Turkish ambas sador here hag been directed 1)' the Ot toman government to inform Great Brit ain of Turkey's willingness to receive assistance in bringing about a suspen sion of hostilities with a view of arriv ing at a peace settlement, Greece and the Balkan nations insist that Turkey must urrange direct with them tho terms of peace, without the intervention of the Europeans. jThis at titude is described in a statement from ollicials, which says the Turkish proposal is satisfactory, insofar as showing their desire to prevent further bloodshed. As regards foreign intervention, there seems to be no chance of the Balkan states listening to any foreign party while treating for an arrangement of peace conditions. This must be settled between the Balkan states and Turkey, direct. The union of the Balkan states is the most close, hearty and intimate that it has ever been, for it has been welded bv blood and a common interest. There is not the least danger that any dis agreement as to the division of the ter ritorios or the position of the frontiers will disturb it. I lus may tie assumed inasmuch as the detail of the campaign were arranged with the greatest care, and the same procedure will be followed both as to the conclusion of hostilities and the subsequent political considera tions. TURKISH ARMY NOW IN FULL RETREAT And the Turkish Government Has Asked the Powers to Intervene Official Bulletin Admits the Former. London, Nov. 4. The Turkish army is In full retreat on Constantinople, and the Turkish government has asked the powers to intervene. " "-" An official bulletin was issued by the government at Constantinople last night, admitting defeat at the hands of the Bulgarians in the great battle on the Tracean plains. Application wag made to the embassies in Constantinople for mediation by the powers to end the hos tilities and arrange a peace agreement. The ambassadors, prior to this, had asked the Porte to grant permission to each of the great powers to send one warship through the Dardanelles, and this request had been granted. The only guarantee of safety for the native Chris tians and perhaps the foreigners in Con stantinople is to be found in the pres ence of the warships of the gTeat pow ers in the harbor of the Turkish capital. It is the general belief that Bulgaria will refuse to listen to anything in the way of intervention until the Bulgarian army is at the gates of Constantinople, and will insist that Turkey make an appeal direct to the allies without inter ference from the powers. The 'powers have not been able to agree upon the French premier's form ula of "territorial disinterestedness," which is not acceptable to either Aus tria or Germany. They are taking steps, however, for the protection of Christians and their own political interests to Tur key. One warship in addition to the vessels already dispatched to Turkish ports will be sent through the Darda nelles by cah of the powers. Beyond the statement that the Turk ish army is retreating to the last line of fortifications outside Constantinople, there was little news received from the seat of war last night. Fighting was reported along the line from Tchorlu to Serai, which was the outcome, doubt less, of the efforts of the defeated Turks to retire within the Tchatalja lines. which the Unitarians are doing their utmost to prevent. Besiegers Tighten Grip. The besieging forces are tightening their grip around Adrianople, and the bombardment is becoming more vigor ous. In other directions, the allies are consolidating their occupation of Turk ish territory. The Greeks have taken Nieopolis and Prevesa and have landed a division at Stavroa, which is march ing to attack Saloniki. An iineensored dispatch from the latter town intimates the likelihood of its surrender without resistance. In connection with the Servian occupa tion of Prishrend, a warning from Aus tria appears in the official Vienna Fremn denbUtt. which, in tlie supposition that the Servian have now attained the ob ject of their operations towards the west, nay: "There are neither military nor na tional motives for the Servian army to penetrate the districts beyond Prishrend, which are exclusively inhabited by At banians, that is. th-refore. into the nn deniable territory of another Balkan peo pie." Will Enter Last Line of Fortifications Before Constantinople. Constantinople, Nov, 4. The Turkish army is retreating to the last line of fortifications outside the caiiital. This was announced in the first bulletin ad mitting defeat in tho great battle which the government announced last night. J here is a large and unruly element of the population which would be glad of anv pretext for massacre and pillage. The presence of more than 10,000 Mos lem refugees from the war xone, who have lost all their possessions, adds to the danger of the situation. Rumors are eurent that the Young Turks' commit tee may stmt rioting with tho object of overt hrowimr the government, but there have been no tangible proofs o such a plan. It is doubtful whether i rising would bo directed against for cigners as much as native Christians, but the danger to foreigners is very real If the Turkish army sustains complete. defeat, the lives and property of thou sands of foreigners, as well as native Christians, will be in imminent peril. i he presence of foreign warships is of the greatest importance and would bo tho surest, guarantee of security of foreign intercuts ami public order gen orally. The government has made more severe the stirte of siege; strong patrols circulate through the streets, and the police have received orders to use the utmost vigilance and represss disorders rigorously. A brigade of mfanfrv has been dis patched to Tchatalja, with orders to pre vent all fugitives, particularly soldiers. lrom proceeding to Constantinople, but it is questionable if the brigade, under certain conditions, could carry out such an order. Thursdav the diplomatic representa tives of all the nations held a confer ence. Just what measures were decided upon is not known, but the Austrian ambassador visited the foreign minister and called attention to the disquietude on the part of the foreign residents respecting their. safety. VIOLENCE NOT URGED Declared Witnesses for Ettor Defense To-day STRIKE COMMITTEE HEARD CONSTANTINOPLE EXCITED. Foreigners and Natives Alike Suffer from Apprehension, Constantinople, Nov. Constanti nople is in a fever of excitement over the alarming reports from the field of battle Foreigners and natives alike are suffer ing from the tension caused by the scries of military disasters, and, although the city is in a Btate of siege, crim-; in some quarters is unchecked. Many families are leaving the city. The people fear, first, an outbreak of Moslem fanaticism by the turbulent ele ments, the lower classes, and, second, a rising of hordes of maddened soldiers, who are being driven by the Bulgarians to make their last stand- a few miles outside of Constantinople and then, per haps, to fall back on the capital. The battle still continues on the plains of Thrace, and, if the Turkish soldiers fall back within the gates of the city it is feared that they may turn their gun and bayonets on. those who are awaiting here jn trembling the outcome of the conflict. The Turkish army at Dedcaghateh i.x to hem in the western rank of the JJul- garians, while the Turkish force, occupy- ng the line between Tchorlu and Serin, is expected to deliver the decisive blow against the enemy. Defense at Tehatalia have been re paired and strengthened, and during the past few days many guns have been mounted there. But if the Turks are beaten at Tchorlu and Tcherkessketii, n effective resistance along the last line f forts is improbable. - One Witness Declared Ettor Told the Strikers to Remain Absolutely Quiet and Fold Their Arms, Thus Having Capitalist Class at Their Mercy.

Cooke, assistant secretary of the ( lucago Na tional league baseball club, shot and killed one of two men in an automobile who stopped him on Washington boule vard early Sunday morning and ordered him to throw up his hands.

Smith of Perry street re turned home last night from a few weeks' business trip to Montreal, P. Q. While absent Mr. Smith made it a point to sound political sentiment among the dominion business men and learned that leading merchants and professional men of the Canadian metropolis are of the opinion that Governor Wilson will be elected president of the United States to-morrow.. Although the reciprocity bugaboo is largely a thing of the past in Canada, according to Mr. Smiths be lief, the embers of a Canadian animus toward Taft are not yet dead and if the Britisher has any preference in the neighboring country's contest, it cer tainly is not for tho president. After all, savs Mr. Smith, Canada, with her bumper crops, her almost un paralleled era of prosperity, and the pro jected merger of the Grand Tnink, Ca nadian Pacific and Canadian Northern, with its resulting impetus to land devel opment, is not worrying about the out come of tho election in the States.

Just what position Vermont ill tako in the presidential election tw-morrow is something which has caused consid erable uncertainty with the national par ty managers, but because of the fact that Vermont commands but four vote in the electoral college the tangled situ ation in the Green Mountain state has given little uneasiness to the managers of the campaigns. In Vermont,' too, there is nearly as much certainty anion,; the election prophets because of the result of ths September state election, in which no majority was returned, so that the choice had to fall to the legislature. In that election, a normal total vote was cat.t, the Republican party polling 2.2.W. the Democratic 20,3.O, the I'ro- gressive l.i.SOO, th Prohibition 1,443, and the .Socialist 1,181. If sentiment were unchanged from September and a like number of voters should go to the polls to-morrow, Ver- ' mont's vote in the electoral college, would go, of course, to President Taft and the candidate of the party to be se lee ted for the vice-presidential nomina tion tn place of the late James S. Sher man, because the election is by plural-,-ity. But it is quite certain' that the total vote to-morrow will not hold up to the mark set by the Sepemher elec tion, thus bringing down the probablo margin which will give victory to one of the three leaders. Jf any party is to sutler more than tho others because of, this stay-at-home vote, it is likely to be the Republican party. Hence, one might expect a reduction in the Republican vote to-morrow. But there also is a possible changed sentiment to be reckoned with in figur ing up the chances to-morrow, because the election of September was tangled, with local sympathies and distrusts of the-eandidates on the- state ticket. The normal Democratic vote in a state elec tion was largely increased last Septem ber because of the unusually large com plimentary vote given the party's can didate, Harland B. Howe of St. Johns bury, in his home county, Caledonia. A large number of Bull Moose adher ents and many Republicans, if reports be accurate, cast their ballots for Mr. Howe in Caledonia comity, who will swing back to-morrow to their real in tention. That being the case, it is like ly to strengthen the Progressive party's chances and weaken the Democrats ma terially in Caledonia county. ' Throughout the other parts of tho state, too, there has been a shifting of sentym-nt, largely perhaps between the Republican and the Progressive parties, as the Democratic party is, united on its candidate and can only hope for accre tions from the few dissatisfied persons of the other two parties. Just which of the two parties most seriously affected since September is the gainer can bii conjectured only from various bits of information that have cropped out dur ing the past few weeks. If straw vote were to be relied on for a conclusion, it would seem probable that the Bull Moose party were in the ascendancy, as most of those reported have shown marked Progressive party strength. Then, too, the formation of Bull Moose clubs in much hitherto untried territory has served to increase the sentiment in favor of Roosevelt; while in the northern tier of counties the antagonism toward Taft because of his reciprocity proposal has not subsided. Against these is the influence of a quiet campaign conducted by the Re publican state committee in bolstering up a sentiment which normally is strong ly "regular." but which has been shaken considerably during the last few months. Whether this has been effectual in hold ing sufficient votes to make a Taft plu rality is causing the Taft manager considerable uneasiness; which uneasi ness has been transmitted, in turn, t the national committee in the shape of uncertainty, which would be uneasiness for them if Vermont were able to cast more tha'n four votes.
