New Orleans Asking How His Mother Is and Requesting News. ft "If It's RighClt's At Wright's; If It's Al Wright's, It's Right." t9s for a Man You'll If1 1 Find It H ere (Special to the Free Press.) Rutland, Dec. 21. "Wire full situation i t home, care St. Charles Hotel. How is mother?" Thin .brief telegram received to-day by 'lr. John J. Dervin of Pcultney, a. brother-in-law, was the first word relatives have received from John J. Murphy, former treasurer of the Marble Savings bank of this city, who mysteriously If ft Rutland November 2f and has not bfen heard from since, except that It had been learned from examination of hotel registers and Information furnished by acquaintances, that the missing young man, wboe home is in West Rutland, had been in New York, in Philadelphia and in Columbus, Ohio. News that the young man is alive and probably well has relieved the tense nervous strain under which his family has I'Cfn for many days. While the telegrarrf" said little. Or. Dervin, who has been one of the leaders in conducting the countrywide search, feels that Mr. Murphy is now in his right mind and probably without sufficient funds to come to Vermont. Dr. Tervin left for Louisiana a few hours after receiving tho message. Relatives iind frienfls of the young man have entertained the theory ;U1 along that Murphy's disappearance was due to a temporary derangement of the mind and their belief i that ids brain assumed a normal state.

It Is the belief of the family that the missing man may have seen the copy which went to this hostelry ami on gazing at his own picture suddenly came to his souses. Thev point to tho fad that his fir"t thought was of homo, as tho telegram indicates. Mr. Murphy's mother has been prostrated with grief ever since her son left Rutland and thft shock of joy whi h nhe experienced this morninc affected her nearly as much as the original news of his departure. She rallied somewhat this afternoon. Murphy's disappearance was one of tho strangest affairs of the kind which ever happened in Rutland. Having a responsible position in thn hank and being associated with the management of the New Hotel Hard well, he had a wide acquaintance and he was looked upon ns one of t ho most promising young men in the city After attending a picture show on November L't! he left Rutland in his automobile nl ten o't-lnck at ninlit and drove to Manchester, where he left the machine in a Ma niRC and took the sleeper train for New York. Several Rutland and Burlington people, who knew him, saw him on tbe train and on the streets of New York early nct morning. It was subsequenUy ax-ert;iined that be had been in Philadelphia, where he registered at a well known hotel under his own name. He was not seen a train until Richard H. Rovce of this city met him casually in Oolumbus, Ohio, some days later. Royeo at this tinvj t .z ,:ri, vtzZ'- 'A M ?'

The Turkish official communication of December 20 as received in London differs somewhat from the statement which came from Berlin by wireless. The communication by way or London says: "Constantinople, Dec. 20, via London Dec. 21. The enemy saw that success for our attack against the north was unavoidable and embarked the night of December 39-20 with ;1 haste a part of his forces. Nevertheless, despite the thick fog the enemy could not hinder pursuit by our troops during the retirement. "The latest reports to-day say that our troops bo thoroughly cleared Anafarta and Ari Burtu of the enemy that not a single soldier remained behind there. Our troops advanced to the coast and captured great quantities of booty, includ ing munitions, tents and cannon. "The hostile attack at Seddul-Bahr De cember 19 took the following course: The enemy maintained for a time a vigorous fire from his land guns of all calibres and from monitors and cruisers against our positions. Then he attacked with all his forces our right wing and the cen ter of the left wing successively, but our troops checked the attack and drove back the attackers with enormous losses to their positions." 7 Episcopal Church parlors, instead of Thursday evening.
