Bulgars Said To Be Retreating In Great Confusion'
Neither Side Shows Quarter and Invaders Said To Be

SAYS JAPAN WILL AID.
Calgary, Alberta, Oct. 25.
"When the time comes, Japan
will be on the job with several
hundred thousand of the very
best equipped soldiers, to aid
the allies in Kurope. What Jap-
an will do to nid her friends in

world. " -

I HOEEIBLE CRUELTIES REPORTED.
- Paris, Oct. 25. Horrible cruelties are
being visited on Serbians by the Bul-
h garian invaders of that country, ac-
t . ording to dispatches today trom Salon-
Neither side expects or grants any
'S quarter. The troops of both armies
I .seem actuated by fiery personal hatred.
The dispatches allege tat tne Bulgar
ians are slaughtering non-combatants
by the wholesale, not even sparing the
tiged men and women and little chil
dren. Following Sofia's official claim that
the Bulgarians have captured Cskub,
Czar Ferdinand's troops are rushing re
inforcements across the Salonika-Nish
railroad. The occupation of this city
Hives the Bulgars a strong hold on this
line and it is predicted tnat tne allies
will have difficulty penetrating to the
aid of the imperiled Serbians.
Though still offering desperate oppo
sition to the advancing Austro-German
hordes, the Serbians are believed to be
reakening. Gradually, it is feared,
their opposition will disintegrate.
The Teuton gains in the Balkans,
however, have been more than offset
by their losses on the Russian and Ital
ian fronts where the Slavs and the
army of King Victor Kmma;iuel are
generally on the offensive.
AUSTRIANS CLAIM GAINS.
Vienna, Oct. 2:5. General successes
for Austrian arms were described today

execntion of Miss hdith ('avoll, hnglisb
woman, was interpreted here today as
meaning that her killing may not be a

in defense, issued by Under Secretary

meat held her execution legal and justf

was part of a "world wide" plot in

along that the Brussels authorities has

completed, wus also attriliutod to i'enr
