BULGARIA GIVES UP PLAN TO HEAD OFF SERVIANS AND GREEKS MET WITH FAILURE. HAS APPEALED TO POWERS Dlssentlon In War Office and Exhaus tion of Her Troops Caused the Defeat of Bulgaria Rou manla a Factor. London, England. The end of a fort night's desperate fighting in the Bal kans finds Bulgaria forced to appeal to the powers to arrange peace. The Bulgarian plan to drive a wedge be tween the Greek and Servian armies in the neighborhood of Guevghell has failed completely. The last reports of the fighting received from Athens show that the Servians and Greeks at this point are combining forces, while the Roumanian array is beginning au invasion of Bulgaria. The latter fact doubtless was the de ciding factor In the Bulgarian appeal to the powers. How far Bulgaria's de feat is due to dissensions in high mili tary quarters, which resulted in the resignation of General Savoff, and how far to the fact that the Bulgarian troops, which bore the brunt ot the hard fighting In the last campaign, were more exhausted than the Greek and Servian forces, probably win never be known. Nothing can be predicted at the mo ment as to how events will sTUpe them selves, the Roumanian Invasion ol Bulgaria having brought an entirely new factor into the problem. Russia and France are devoting their effort3 to persuade the allies to adopt a mod erate attitude" in order to facilitate a peaceful settlement. The Servian premier is quoted in the Vienna Neue Frele Presse as de claring that the new war has com pletely set aside all treaties of alliance and that peace must n'ow be negoti ated nn an entirely new basis. Rumors were published in Berlin and according to the Daily Telegraph's correspondent at Athens were current there that General Ivanoff, with fifty thousand Bulgarians was forced to sur render near Demirhlssar, where fight ing wan proceeding for the possession of a railway bridge over the Struma river. Dispatches from the European capi tals published in London severely criticise Premier Daneff's overbear ing policy as toeing the cause of the Bulgarian defeat and his speedy down' fall is predicted. .
