Karl/ Monday morning no Hound of

there was an ominous .silence l isting
several hours. A gendarme brought
orders for Bartlett to lcavo imme?

that any hour the Turkish army might
be in full flight, as they had suffered
a disaster in the night.
Instead of obeying, the corre?

dribble of men began to leave the

showed signs of breaking up and re?

Throughout the morning the Turk?

Mr. Klrby and W, T. Moore were to?

The latter with his dog crossed the

started over tho track only a few
yards ahead of the roar car. Mistak?

Mr. Klrby leaped back and was in the

London. Nov. JO.?The war has
shafted for a time from the field of
arms to that of diplomacy. It may
be that the end ll near. Plenipoten?
tiaries for the belligerent powers will
meet tomorrow at the village of
Hademkcoi, a f?w miles outssde the
capital, for a preliminary discussion
of the terms of an armtlstice.
In the meantime the Turkish, Bul?
garian <iei Servian commanders have
ordered a ceaeation of hostilities, al?
though cannonading) which Naslm
Pasha reports ai uninterrupted, oc?
curred thli morning.
The sweeping terms which the al?
lies were said tO have demanded yes
terd iy as ? baais for the armistice ap?
pear not to have been advanced, it
is almost certain that it will be on
the basis of the Balkan states holding
all the conquered country until a per-'
manenl treaty of peace is signed.
How saany vestiges of his former
power they are prepared to cohce&e
the Turk depends largely upon two
factors?the strength and supplies of
the allied army threatening the gate!
of Constantinople and the extent to
which the cholers hafl embarrassed
their plans. it is certain the Bul?
garian army Is hampered by the dis?
tance of its base and the rough roads.
The cholera Is counted on by the
Turk.- to weaken the Bulgarian am?
bition for a triumphant march into
the capital and the celebration of mass
in St. Sophia. But to make assurance
doubly sure, the Turk has resorted to
the amaslnfl plan Of transforming the
mosque Into o pesl house and has

Two Towns wiped out?One Hundred

Kingston, Nov. 20.?The western
end of the island of Jamaeia has been
devastated by a hurricane lasting
for live days A great tidal wave has
swept over both the north and south
coasts, practically wiping out Savanna
la Mar and Lucea, both towns of con?
siderable importance. According to
a report brought in by a steamer, 4 2
persons were killed at Montego Bay.
All the roads have been wrecked
along the southwestern coast and in?
calculable damage done. Communi?
cation between Kingston and the cen?
tre of destruction is not likely to be
resumed for a week.
One hundred houses were blown
down. Telegraphic communication is
still suspended. The governor of
Jamaica has left on a special train,
accompanied by a detachment of ar?
tillerymen who have taken with them
300 tents and foodstuffs, as in certain
sections the people are homeless and
destitute. The gale began November
14 and continued for several days.
Vessels reported the wind blew more
than 100 miles an hour.
Lucea 's a town of 2,000 inhabitants
on l : on the northwest coast of
Jamaica, while Savanna la Mar Is c

tion on the southwest coast almost
directly across the island.

to the embassies and legations for the
removal of the naval contingents, on
the ground that their presence Is not

ministers at a meeting today dis

that they decided to leave the mat?
ter in abeyance for the present.
Having Failed in Attempt to Carry
Lines They Are Reported as Draw?

London. Nov. 20.?The correspond?

Constantinople, under date Of Novell -

"The balance in the ighting l.t
Tchatalja lines today was distinctly
In favor of the Turks.
"The Bulgarians did not suffer a
defeat, but received a check. Their
first attempt to carry the lines not
having succeeded, they have drawn
back. The Turks have advanced their
entrenchments. The best the Turks
can hope to do seems to be to bring
on a condition of stalemate, where
they can <nter upon negotiations."
Chronicle Correspondent Sees Turks
Gain Fortunes of War at Last
London. Nov. 20.--Martin H. Don
ohue, telegrahplng to the chronicle
from Hademkeui under date of No
veil!ber 18, says: "The fortune of war
proverbially variable, has now turned
decidedly in favor of the Turks, who
have gained the first advantage in the
conflict at their last stand.
"The Bulgarians were unable to
hold the advanced positions they hud
stormed at much cost the previous
day. As they retreated, the Turks
shelled them, thus reversing all pre?
vious experience in the campaign. All
redoubts taken by the enemy were r -
occupied by the Turks.
"It is probable, however, that the
Bulgarians regard it merely as a re?
connaissance to test the strength of
t h ? Turkish works."

Misuse of the Mails is the Charge?
Plans for Many Arrest? Extending
Over 22 suites Were Carefully
Made and Carried Out with Clock*
Uke Precision.
Washington, Nov. 20.?In a na?
tionwide raid involving 173 persons in
the principal cities of the country was
made today by postolfice inspectors
and United States marshals upon doc?
tors and drug concerns, charged with
misuse of the mails to solicit crim?
inal medical practice or to dispose of
medicines and instruments connected
with such practice.
The raid?the most active and f?
reaching ever made by any de?
ment of the government?was ui.
the personal direction of Postmaster
General Hitchcock and Chief Inspec?
tor Robert S. Sharpe of the postolhce
department. So carefully had its de?
tails been guarded that until the first
of the arrests were made at Indian?
apolis early in the day, practically
nothing was known of the govern?
ment's contemplated action. Working
with clock-like precision, the inspec?
tion force spread over 2 2 States car?
ried out the prearranged plans, and
at an early hour tonight the postof
fice department ha. received word
that nearly all of the designated per?
sans had been arrested.
The results of the crusade are still
being received tonight by the inspec?
tors' divisions of the postoffice in the
form of dozens of telegrams from va?
rious divisional headquarters. In
isolated instances it was found for
various reasons to be impracticable
to effect the arrests, but the suspected
persons against whom warrant have
been issued are under surveillance
and probably will be unable to escape.
Chief Inspector Sharpe and a large
part of the force of S90 inspec tors
had been engaged for seven months,
under the orders of the postmaster
general, in working up the scores of
individual cases in which arrests were
made today. Many of those taken
Into custody were members of promi?
nent wholesale and retail drug con?
cerns or physicians well known in
their own communities.
The government will pros<? ute the
cases vigorously, according to a state?
ment by Postmaster General Hitch?
cock tonight.
"The work of the postoffice Inspec?
tors today is the culmination of the
crusade Instituted more than two
years ago against the fraudulent and
unlawful use <.f the mails," said Mr
Httchock. "In that comparatively
brief time we have wiped out of exist
i nee concerns which have mulcted the
people of this country out of more
than $100,000,000 by frauds perpetrat?
ed through the use of the mails, and
the courts have sent many of the pro?
moters of the first fraudulent schem?
es to the penitentiary, where they
.are serving time. The wide publicity
given to the arrests made today will
do more to put an end lo this sort of
criminality than any other process."
Approximately 90 of the persons ar?
rested already have been Indicted by
United states grand juries in various
parts of the country; und the cases
of the others will be presented to
grand juries now sitting us rapldl) as
may be feasible.
Strict enforcement of municipal and
State laws in the Bast was said by the
postal authorities to account for tho
comparatively few arrests in the lar^e
cities in that part of the country.
While it was declared that violations
of the law are frequent In such cities
as Boston. New Vo:k, Philadelphia
and Baltimore, the accused persons,
it was asserted, have been pursue i
closely by the state and federal ofH
! dais.
Postoffice Inspectors said the hot?
bed of this class of criminality is ii

cisco, it was claimed, n fictitious
name was used by several well known
physicians who employed a woman to
do the neecssary advertising and

of complaints have been received by
t>ie department from respe table \\? -
men. complaining of th< rec<?ipl of
this ( lass oj matter.
Approximately 20 p< r ? ? ul of those
arrested today are socalled "pill dot
