AILY BARRE, VERMONT, FRIDAY; JULV 11, 1913. VOL. XVII NO. 99. PRICE, ONE CENT. rm E LOSING NATION IS AGAIN BESET Bulgarian Territory Invaded by Greedy Roumanian ; Army ROUMANIA WANTS PART OF SPOILS Recalls Its Minister to Sofia and Proclaims War Bucharest, Ronmania, July 11 The Roumanian government decided yester day to notify the Bulgarian government that the Roumanian army would crass Into Bulgarian teritory and also that Ttowmania would take part in the dis ' eussion of the final partition of the ter ritory of what was formerly Euro pean Turkey. London, July It. The king of Rou mania has declared war on Bulgaria. The Houmanian minister ivt Sofia has been ; recalled. The Sofia correspondent of the Times gent this announcement early this - morning. ; Vienna, July It. Roumanian troops legan to cross the Bulgarian frontier at four o'clock yesterday afternoon, accord ing to late advices here. London, July 11. The end of a fort night's desperate fighting in the Balk ens finds Bulgaria forced to appeal to the powers to arrange peace. The Bul garian plan to -drive a wedge between the Greek and Servian armies in the neighborhood of Guevheli has completely failed. The last reports of the fighting received from Athens show that the Ser vians and Greeks at this point are com bining their forces while the Roumanian army is beginning an invasion of Bul garia. The latter fact doubtless wa the de ciding factor in the Bulgarian appeal to the powers. How far Bulgaria's defeat is due to dissensions in high military quarters, which resulted in the resigna tion of General Savoff, and how far to the fact that the Bulgarian troops, which bore the brunt of the hard fight ing in the last campaign were more ex hausted than the Greek and Servian forces, probably will never lie known. Nothing can be predicted at the moment as to how events will shape themselves, the Roumanian invasion of Bulgaria ha.ving brought an entirely new factor into the problem. Russia and France are devoting their efforts to per suading the allies to adapt ; moderate attitude in order to facilitate a peace ful settlement. The Servian premier is quoted in the Vienna Xeuc Freie Presse as declaring that the new war has com pletely set aside all treaties of alliance and that pfaee must now he negotiated on an entirely new basis. Belgrade. Servia, July ll.--The cam paign of Servians and Greeks against the Bulgarians in .Macedonia is regarded by the Servian military authorities as concluded, since the defeat of the Bul garians in the recent fighting. The Ser vian troops this morning joined hands with the Greek force, which had just taken Stnimitza.

Scurrilous mail matter is de scribed bv the government as being any thing defamatory to another's character. On account of ex-Governor Draper's prominence, the post cards have created more than ordinary interest. MUCH TROUBLE FOLLOWS SMASH Antoists in Burlington Accident Forced To Defend Themselves.

Brattleboro, Julv 11, Once more the famous case of Edson E. Rowley and Martha E. Row lev agtinst George W. Shepardson and Eva C. Shepardson comes to the front in local legal circles, this time because of a decree just hand ed down by Chief Justice Rowell of the state supreme court. The decree is to the effect that the decision of Judge Fish of the superior court is reversed, the demurrer hied by the attorneys of Mr. Shepardson is sus tained, the bill adjudged insufficient and the cause remanded, with the mandate that the bill Jbe dismissed with cost unless the court below permits further proceedings as provided by sections 1317 and 1318 of the public statutes, which allow an entirely new suit on a fresh basis. This case has been in litigation through the series of courts in the state for some time. It grew out of the wale of a farm by George W. Shepard son, acting as agent for his wife, to Edson E. and Martha E. Rowley for about $1,000. The representation by Shepardson, it is claimed, at the time of the sale wa that the farm contained some 1,000 sugar maple trees. Later the purchasers found that this was not within 1.2O0 of the real number and a suit to recover was instituted. Judg ment was obtained for $1.0!fl, but this was reversed by the supreme court on an error and another suit was brought up on which judgment for $1,213 was obtained. This w-ss taken to the snpreme court and the suit against Mrs. Shepardson was discontinued on the ground that she was hot the responsible party. The next move was a suit in chancery against Mr. Shepardson on the ground that he had conveyed the property to his wife and that she had received the benefit of the alleged fraudulent action. This chancerv suit was- heard bv Judge Frank L. Fish as chancellor and his decree ordered that the balance of $1,000 due on a mortgage given by the Rowleys should be extinguished and in addition that the Shepardsons should pay the Rowleys the sum of $480.00 with interest from Jan. 20. 1013, to time oi payment on or before April 1, 1913.
