MORRISON STREET AT FOURTH
WRITER TELLS OF
Observer Says Turks Lost in
Battle of Sunday and
OTTOMAN WINGS BROKEN
Correspondent, Arrested, "Squares"
Guards and Stops at Scene of
Battle Terrific Hail of Shot
Puts Army to Rout.
LONDOX. Nov. 21. Ashmed Bartlett.
the war correspondent of the Dally
Telegraph. In a dispatch dated Novem
ber 18, says that the battle before Tcha
taldja on Sunday and Monday resulted
in a KTeat Bulgarian success.
Early Monday morning no sound of
firing came from the front. Instead
there was an ominous silence lasting
several hours. A gendarme brought
orders for Bartlett to leave immediately
for Constantinople, saying that any
hour the Turkish army might be in full
flight, as they had suffered a disaster
in the night.
Instead of obeying, the correspond
ent "squared" the guards and returned
toward the battlefield. He could see
through the mist only the red flashes
of an artillery dueL which bad been re
turned, but on the lifting of the mist
he could observe a change in the po
At once it became evident that all
the outlying works forming the ad
vance defenses to the receding center
line had fallen into the hands of the
Bulgarians, who no longer were con
centrating against the outlying; lines,
but had brought up guns and were now
shelling the main lines of works in
front of Hademkeul, as well as the
left wing of the Turkish lines from
the captured positions.
Bnlsar Attack Succeeds.
From an official source he learned
that at 1 o'clock in the morning the
Bulgarians concentrated their infantry
against the advanced lines and deliv
ered a night attack with decisive ef
fect, the whole work falling into their
hands as the result of 45 minutes'
fighting at the point of a bayonet.
This was the disaster to which the
.gendarmerie referred. Tlve Bulgarians
were now established in an arc made
by the receding circle of hills forming
the main line of defense, which enabled
them to attack at will the main line
around Hademkeaul Itself.
Still more serious was the fact that
they could enfilade the Turkish left
wing, and If they pierced the center
at Hedemkeul both wings would be
cut off and would be compelled to re
tire in confusion If It were possible to
escape at all.
Having captured the outer works,
the Bulgarians devoted the entire day
to a tremendous bombardment of their
remaining work. They also demoral
ized the reserves by concentrating a
section of their fire on the exposed
camps. Early morning mist made the
fire on the camps Ineffective, but later,
when the day cleared, shooting was re
sumed with the old-time accuracy, and
the effects became painfully apparent
among the troops of the first army. A
stead dribble of men began to leave
the lines, making for shelter In the
rear, and ' apparently no effort was
made to stop them. -
Turkish Artillery Quieted.
Soon entirely battalions began to
clear off In masses and the whole army
corps showed signs of breaking up
and retiring In conrusion. unrougn
out the morning the Turkish artillery
hardly replied to the enemy s lire, be
ing either chary of disclosing their
position or short or ammunition.
It was evident that this bombard
ment of the first army's corps was in
tended only to demoralize the troops
and to keep In check any counier-ai
tack against the main Bulgarian ad
vance on Hademkeul.
During the morning and afternoon
no Infantry attack was delivered
against the main position, which was
subjected to the same concentrated
bombardment as the outer works had
suffered the prevous day.
As to the positions of the combat
ants when he left the field Monday,
Mr. Bartlett says:
"The Bulgarians occupy all the ad
vanced works, where their artillery is
established and are engaged In bom
barding the center, of the main lines
of defense around HaaemKeui, evi
dently with the intention of delivering
an infantry attack late in the even
inir. In the night or perhaps at dawn.
"Should this attache succeed, the
famous lines are won. The Turkish
army has no alternative but retirement
to Constantinople. If the army again
retreats. It will break up altogether.
There merely will be a repetition of
the scenes after the battle of Lule
Burgas, with the army arriving at
Stamboul instead of Tchatalja.
Correspondent la Arrested.
Bartlett was unable to stay until
nightfall as he was placed under ar
rest and escorted to the rear and or
dered to proceed under guard to Con
stantlnople. He planned, however, to
break away In the morning and pro
ceed across the country to witness the
and of the battle.
The correspondent in another dis
patch fully confirms the terrible chol
era scenes, the horror of which he
says can never be effaced from his
mind. As there were no medical ar
rangements, the victims were thrown
out to die. Then the bodies were
hastily covered with a thin layer of
"These ghastly mounds,1 he says,
"litter the whole country, there is no
escaping them. But these horrid
scenes pale in significance when com
pared with the horrors of Hademkeul,
where the remnants of the defeated
army finally rallied. These men, who
lived for 10 days on green corn, or
scraps of offal picked up on the march
yield the greatest number of victims.
I never actually entered the village
of Hademkeul, because the sights out
side caused me to turn my horse in
the ODDoslte direction. The valley in
vaicb Hademkeul lies, is the valley
of the shadow of oeatn."
