- Along- the entire coast Turkish vil
lage set on fire by the retreating

idents, fearing reprisals, were all flee
ing; and many of them who had em
barked on small craft were met by the
Litchfield. Fortunately the sea was
calml and the chances are that they
reached the Greek Islands in the Aege-
an sjea In safety. The panic-stricken
refugees had not had time to save their
belongings and the men on the de
stroyers could see the frail boats tight
ly packed with women in silk garments
andtnen scantily clad, but all carrying
rifles. Many of the terrorized inhabi
tanti of Smyrna also departed by sea
eeforb the arrival of the Turkish troops.
V'TWs writer never saw a more thor
oughly defeated army than that of
the Creeks In this war. Last Wednes
day (the correspondent made an at
tempt Jo reach Manissa. but he was
forced by the tide of fleeing Greeks
to rjeturn to this town. A powerful
motdr car which should have reached
Manissa ln three hours was compelled
to turn back after having .made 11
miles In. four hours, the compact
masses of retiring soldiers making
- further progress Impossible.

mounted on donkeys. camels and
horses or riding In old buUock carts

army on foot, were pouring towards
' Smyrna.
They were leaving behind them a
: burning country, the Greek staff hav
ing ordered that all the towns and

i be destroyed. In four hours your cor
respondent, saw at least 5000 men and
, counted not more than five officers.
Men who found their rifles embarrass
ing threw them into the ditches, from
whl h they were picked up by women
- who hoped to exchange them In town
-for a loaf of bread.
v -Allied officers who. have been with
.-' the 3reek army for two years are un-
' able to understand how the Greeks
eould suffer such a crushing defeat.
The extent of the collapse did not be
come known sooner because the inter-
V mU4 censors in Constantinople, fol
lowing the instructions of their gov

,-the Inews from leaking out and tried
; to-rhinlmixe the disaster.
The' breakdown .of the Creek army

ficulty is to determine who would
then become the possessor of Constan

maintain the present BUltan .there
while all Asiatic Turkey defied his
authority. On the other hand, the
jealousy of the powers would prevent
any one of them from permanently
occupying it.
Several unofficial suggestions have
beei made. One Is to place Con
stantinople and the neutralized straits
under the guaranship of the League
of Nations or to a combination of
great powers.
Henry Morgenthau s recent sugges
tion is exceptionally interesting and
statesmanlike. ' The powers should
administer Constantinople in trust un
til it can become the seat of govern

of the future.

Tacoma, Sept IU CO. P.) Three
heavily armed bodies of men Monday
morning began, .beating' the, brush in
three thickly wooded areas of South-;

neighbor- boy, for four hours late last
Thursday night and Friday morning
at the CPHara home at Schneider's
Prairie, eight miles from Olympia on
the eheiton highway, is being sought
wit desperate tenacity. . s
Notified that a man answering the
description of the maniac had been
seen near the Westbo bridge, on ". the
road from Tacoma to Puyallnp Sunday
evening about :30, a squ4 of police
with Rawed -off shotguns started
searching the brush immediately. They
were soon Joined by deputy - sheriffs
and armed volunteers, and a large
pafty organised.
Every road around the bit of woods
was watched Sunday night Combing
of this part of Pierce county started
Monday morning. The search here
was started by a motorist, who said
that while his machine was stalled
near the lonely bridge on the Puyallup
road's man dressed In -dark clothes
and wearing a khaki shirt that ap
peared to be covered with blood passed
nearby. He challenged the man, who
at once drew two revolvers and waved
them threateningly, and than disap
peared in the brush without a - word.
The man wag carrying a pair of over
alls rolled under his arm.
In the edge'pf the military reserva
tion of Camp Lewis, mr the Nia
qually river, another search is being
made by soldiers and deputies from
Olympia, This search started when
Sergeant Ralph Lord of the military

suspiciously ear the southern end of
the reservation about 2 o'clock Sunday
irty mounted men from Camp
Lewis, under command of Lieutenants
G. S. Deadrlch and L D. Yeatort, start

Olympia, joined the hunt with another
posse. The deputies worked down the
river, while the soldiers beat the brush
from the ofher direction. Larger bod
ies of soldiers were to join the hunt
today and go through every foot of
cover large enough to hide a man.
While these two hunts were going on
a third that had started early Friday
morning in the woods a few miles from
the O'Hara home was still In progress.
M5re than 200 Thurston county citi

It is believed la Olympia that the
fiend may have escaped to the water's
edge between Olympia and Oyster Bay,
or may have found a boat If this
proves to be true, he will be noticed by
some rancher soon, as that part of the
state Is sparsely settled. And a stranger
would attract, attention. Thej are
few stores in that district, too, and a

later to ask for food at some farm.
Olympia officers started Saturday
making a completer check of all the
rooming nouses in towns and TBgging
camps, which are also being searched.
Tacoma deputies 'arrested one sus

gave his name as Eminett Brightman,
16. He wore brown overalls, but car
ried a pair of blue overalls. It is not
believed that he is'the man wanted for

fingerprints from ths chimney of the

It Is contended by the supporters of

constitutional, in that it abridges the

also that it works to. prevent electors
