Fighting Begins. London, Oct. 8. A news agency (jaef.atrh from Cattinje this morning sa- war was declared by Montene gro on Turkey. The declaration of war, the dispatch says, was delivered to the Ottoman Government by the Montenegrin charge at Constantino pie. Heavy lighting is reported in progress between the Montenegrins and Turkish troops along the fron tier. Dispatches state the Montene grin Government has instructed its representative at Constantinople to break off diplomatic relations with Turkey to-day and leave Constanti nople immediately. The Montenegro, it's understood, handed his passports to the Ottoman charge at Cattinje. A hrigade of Turkish infantry, pro cdiim from Scutari to Tusi on the frontier, was attacked by a large force reaching Tusi. The battle con tinued throughout the night. Ac cording to latest advices the fighting is Mill going on. The declaration of war on Turkey, n-ported from Cattinje by Montene gro, forestalled the action of the Eu ropean powers in favor of peace by only a few hours. It is feared Mon Mieirro's action will tend to frustrate the efforts of diplomacy. It is likely other Balkan States will follow Mon umro's lead and throw their armies into Turkey. The situation of the Christians in Macedonia and Albania, and the Balkan States, demand that those provinces be granted autono mous government are the main causes of the crisis. Troops Cress Turkish Border. Belgrade, Servia, Oct. 8. Reports reached here to-day that Montenegrin troops had crossed the Turkish fron tier. The Servian Parliament voted extra credit of about nine million dol lars for military purposes. MB. HOLT FOB COL. ROOSEVELT.

Editor The Caucasian: Early last August I issued a circular letter rec ommending a few things for the Pro gressives to read during the cam paign. Unintentionally (through over sight and partially through ignor ance), I neglected to mention the Munsey daily papers, so now wish to write a revised letter along these and Progressive lineB. Since most of our big daily papers in our Eastern cities are either own ed or controlled by the interests, the Roosevelt news is very much muzzled and seems to be more so this year than usual. Many are Democratic papers and our State papers are near ly all this way, so to get any real news daily, has been necessary to go out of my State for the news. As a consequence, many are seriously mis led and kept in unnecessary ignor ance and prejudice. Would suggest to all Progressives, and, In fact, all voters, to read in ad dition to their State papers, what 1 will mention below. Only two years ago one magazine editor stated that the Philadelphia North American was the only real in dependent paper of any size in the country, and until 'this year there seems to be very few east of the Mississippi; however, they now seem to be increasing, and doubtless will from now on. a few months after voting Will Xot Stand General Conflict. Paris, Oct. 8. The leading French newspapers have all sent special cor respondents to the affected Balkan capitals. They declared that war in the Balkans will not precipitate a general European conflict. Great Britain to-day informed Premier Poincare that she now agrees to the suggestion that intervention at Con stantinople should be made collec tively by the five great powers' am bassadors. This strengthens the hands of the powers in their representations. Asked for Passport. Constantinople, Oct. 8. The Mon tenegrin charge d'affairs asked for his passports from the Turkish gov ernment. He will leave to-day. diplomatic Relations Broken Off. London, Oct. 8. It is officially an nounced in Constantinople that diplo matic relations between Turkey and Montengro have been broken off. Bulgarians Not Discouraged. Paris, Oct. 8. The Bulgarian gov ernment was undiscouraged by the recent refusal of France to grant a loan. She again asked the Parisian Bank for a milion dollar loan. The hank refused to give the money. The Caucasian for Ten Cents. The Caucasian wil be mailed to any address from now until November 10 for only 10 cents. Get up a club and send us right away, and we will send them a copy of this week's issue. This offer will not appear again, and hope all our friends will get up clubs at once and send in. Do this much to help Roosevelt and the ticket in this State. Address, THE CAUCASIAN, Raleigh, N. C. BlTan Bulldozed the Democratic Con vention. Hickory Times Mercury. Mr. Bickett, in his speech here, ent for Teddy for running after be ing counted out in the Chicago con tention. But he didn't say that Mr. ryan was allowed to bulldoze the Baltimore rnnvontinn -ut i from going with Teddy into a new Party, or starting one like it out of his acts. own party. But these are the Beginning with the Philadelphia North American, this is edited by E. A. Van Valkenburg, who is a most able and fearless writer. His edi torials are long, conclusive and most instructive. This paper is especially live, perfectly clean, and non-sensational. Can also speak in the highest terms of the five Munsey dailies owned by Frank A. Munsey, which are as fol lows: Jhe Boston Journal (morn ing), The New York Press (morning, and bought by him less than a month ago), The Philadelphia Evening Times, The Baltimore Evening News, and The Washington Evening Times. All of these are newsy and full of rich and spicy editorials, cartoons, etc. Judson C. Welliver contributes every few days something I never like to miss. Perhaps this section would prefer one of the papers nearest home, and the Washington Evening Times reaches you before breakfast. You can reach any of these by sim ply addressing their respective names in their respective cities. The subscription .rates are around 25 cents per month, and a little over, and I know of no dailies which give you more progressive news in return for your money as well as news in general. Really I would urge as many as possible to read one or more of the above from now until election. The Outlook (weekly) needs no introduction, and Colonel Roosevelt has been contributing editor for more than the last two years. His articles' relative to the Stolen Convention are most convincing, entitled "Mr. Taft's, Majority," "Thou Shalt Not Steal," "The Steam Roller," and "Men Who Live Softly." These are now in pam phlet form and perhaps may be dis tributed at Progressive clubs with other literature. It is rumored that Mr. Hearst and all of his papers (New York Ameri can Journal, his papers in Boston, Chicago and San Francisco) will soon come out for Roosevelt. They cer tainly have not been unfriendly to him and his cause during this cam paign. Beg to add that, although born and raised a State Democrat, I have been a most staunch admirer of Col onel Roosevelt for some fifteen years, and this loyalty is growing more and imore. Cannot refrain from saying I con sider him a God-send, and the great est man of the age, and really in a class by himself, and although most versatile, his specialty is knowing how to run a country and give a square deal all around. Only wishI had the time, space! and command of words to state why T think it is for the best interest of all that he should be our next Presi dent. Think the business world would have no uneasiness who carry Jon same in a legitimate way. While I have the highest regard or Dr. Woodrow Wilson, I have very ittle confidence in the Democratic arty (nationally) and their alliance with Tammany and the old line boss es, etc., on both sides who would either make some serious blunders in tinkering with the tariff or re strict the really needed legislation. Colonel Roosevelt really "knows" hat to do and is able to cope with is opponents, so, with ex-Speaker Cannon and others eliminated and Vmany doomed to be supplanted by Progressives, he would doubtless bring about some fruitful results In due time. This wise and able man gives his support to everything that is calculated for good. The fact that Jane Addams (called the apostle of purity), Judge Lind sey, Jacob A. Riis, Pinchot, and many others too numerous to mention, working for humanity, are giving him their support Is a great recom mendation, while on the other hand the crooks like Barnes, Root, Pen rose and others being so bitter, is al so an unusual recommendation in an other way to be proud of..- I Poor President Taft. I saw my jwl h mistake for him The Chicago steal was the most diabolical thing I ever heard of. and I certainly concur most heartily with Colonel Roosevelt and all others in denouncing it; however, think it will prove providential since It has sound ed the alarm and will hasten the end of boss rule. The present Clapp Investigation committee I also think has proved providential in clearing all doubt for good and all, detrimental to Theodore Roosevelt and vindicating him at every turn. Really Penrose and his intriguers rendered the Colonel great service. I never knew of any man who has been more unjustly abused; however, the crisis bac passed and the tide turned; in fact. It could not be other wise, since this just man was la the right. I certainly marvel at him more and more and want to do all I can for him now. Thirty years of politics has not hurt him. He has proved more than5 a, real man, has lived above all bad influences, and was not for sale. On', the other hand, he has made polities' cleaner and been a great inspiration to many, such as Judge LIndsey and others. His running mate, Governor Hiram Johnson, is indeed more than a tower of strength and has already achieved wonders in regenerating California. This Is undoubtedly the strongest pair I have ever known, and no doubt the strongest in all our history. Cannot omit calling attention to some of the especially abls saea of national reputation who ar candi dates for Governor la various States, such men as Straus, Bsverid. Herbert Knot Smith. Bird. Winston Churchill .and numerous others, who are most determined la this all -its-' portant movement, to say notht&c of oar own home candidate. Hen. Iredell Meares. Our county ticket Is also unusual ly strong, and all are confident of victory. This is the first Urns ia ray life I have ever given any political candi date my real active support, but when It comes to Colonel Roosevelt. If would do almost anything for aim J and shall certainly lead a helping hand in my small and unoficial ca-j paclty, urging all to break away fronj old time traditions and to come forth! as crusaders In a great cause. In conclusion, I urge all to iim-j ply read both sides from now until j election, and do all they can in their) respective capacities, no matter on) how small a scale, as they may have' the time and opportunity. Have tried not to discriminate toof much in favor of or against any news-S paper or magazine nor reflect on I those in my own State (as I explained I to two of our North Carolina news paper men in person), and am only giving the facts, as I see them, I prompted by very best Intentions.
