Government Engages Mutinous Officers at Salamis in Short Battle. A fair Indecisive With Little Damage; Rebels Retire Toward Crete. Official Statement Declares Arsenal Retaken; Fleet May Surrender. ASSOCIATED PRESS NIGHT REPORT.J ATHENS. Oct 29.

After almost 2000 years when Themlstocles gained a memorable over the Persians Salamis again today was the scene of a naval battle. The fight lasted twenty minutes and was between field batteries and hig warships on one side and mutinous bands of naval officers, which quitted the capital Wednesday, with torpedo boats, on the other. A sharp exchange of shells followed the first shots. Some projectiles struck the arsenal, but only one shell hit a torpedo boat the. Sphendona, which Immediately, was enveloped in a cloud of smoke." The torpedo boats gradually retired to shelter off the headlands, where the rebellious force answered the fire of the warships and land batteries, but apparently little damage was -done on their side.

The rebels were led by Lieut Tibaldos and are reported to have numbered 200 men. Athens remained quiet -tonight but much suppressed excitement prevails. An official statement was issued statins that the arsenal, which was In the hands of the rebels, had been re captured, and that the mutinous tor pedo boats were expected to surrender. ACTUATED BY RECSt'T, EVENTS, Lleet. Tibaldos appeared to have been actuated by his disapproval of the tactics of the Military League and the junior naval officers In consenting to negotiate a compromise of the ultimatum recently issued by the Military League for an ordinance suspending all promotions 'for five years and abolishing the posts of rear-admiral, vice-admirals and fifteen places of lesser rank.

Tibaldos took a prominent part in the military movement last August He was the first officer to go to the camp-at Goudi, outside the city, after the Premier's refusal to receive a deputation of officers and he subsequently was appointed commander of the rebel camp. At a meeting of the Military League yesterday Tibaldos said: "I led the last revolt and without me it would have failed. Now you abandon me, I ut I will carry out a second revolt single-handed." The Military League's proclamation disowning Tibaldos, who was in command of a flotilla of torpedo boats and submarines and demanded the portfolio of Minister of Marine, ascribes his pretensions to madness and the influence of outsiders, and threatens to have' him court-martialed for treason. The league met late tonight to dis- (Continued on Thirteenth Page.)

"PERSONAL DEPRAVITY." UD IS 1)1 FLYING. Finish to Figfy Is. Nearing. Bannard 'Alone Is Making a Campaign Along Cut Lines. Judge Gaynor in Fair Way to Talk His Candidacy to Death.

Only Sivift Approach of End Will Save Tammany's Nominee BY SUMNER. BT DIRECT WIRE TO THE TIMES.J EW YORK. Oct. 29. Exclusive-Dispatch.

What Bourke Cock-ran aptly has termed a r-ampaign of "personal depravity" promises to maintain its striking characteristic to the finish, four days distant If tb-9 supply of mud holds out That Gaynor, the Tammany candidate for. Mayor, would hang himself if he had rope enough meaning thereby that he would talk himself to defeat were the campaign to last a few weeks Instead of a few days longer Is the opinion In circles where opinion Is entitled to most weight. But because the people have not been aroused to what Is regarded as the Tammany-smashing pitch oecause the time remaining Is too short to expect tt- reaction which is essential to overthrow the natural majority commanded by the local Democratic organizationthe preponderance of belief Is, as it has been from the first, that will succeed McClellan as Mayor of the metropolis. Undoubtedly, there bas been a change in the situation during the last two or three days, but it is doubtful, en if the tendency of its direction keeps up, that it will ove.eome Tammany's iglnal lead. It ir down to the stage where (h ntlnj Interest commands more audition than previously, Still the odds remain about 2 to 1 on Gaynor; but theje this significant feature of the betiinsf situation today: Bannard money is going begging, even at tho prevailing' odds.

The only way account for this is general apathy in the usual bet ting circles. i In Wall street today a commissioner appeared with $20,000 to lay on Bannard at tha prevailing odds, but even In $100 lots, few takers were found. Another noted betting commissioner, who usually handles an aggregate ot $350,000 for election gamblers, announced today that this year his funds totaled less than $40,000. BANNARD'S GOOD FIGHT. Few, If any, will deny that Bannard, the only candidate for Mayor who has made a high-toned canvass, has gained constantly since the campaign opened, and that his gains have been greater as the contest nears Its close.

At ono stage, there was a tendency to regard Bannard's candidacy, as a joke. Nobody sees it In that light now. If he could muster to his support, in addition to the normal Republican and conservative Independent vote, the rest of the Tammany opposition, he probably would win arid if it was believed he could do that, the betting odds right now would not be what they are. They would be reversed, or, at least, it w6uld be even money. In the three-cornered contest, however, the unprejudiced observers see 50,000 or 60.000 plurality for Gaynor, and if this Judgment four days befor the election, be correct, it will be seen that Bannard has a great obstacle ta overcome to land him In the City HalL Bannard and Hearst together, however diametrically opposed in their method--tbe one avoiding personalities nd putting the issue on high business principles; the other vituperative venomous may pull through the fusion county and city tickets.

Mary with the gift of penetration into tha souls of political leaders believe Boss Murphy has given up the fht for District Attorney and Sheriff and for the city candidates below the of Mayor. But Murphy naturally proclaims success all along the line. Should it be a close election, either as to Mayor or the balance of the ticket, recoursa to those methods by which Tammany bas snatched victory from defeat In many a similar contest 9 expected. In fact reports were circulated today the effect that evidence has been discovered of an alliance between Philadelphia Renubllcan bosses and Tammany bosses In New Yorh, whereby fraudulent vjtcrs are to be marshaled In both cities next Tuer y. It Is declared that the early morning work Is to be done In P-' adelphla and the men then hurried over to New York for service here.

There is more than one bit of evidence that Tammany is worried despite the surface indications prevailing in favor of the election of Gaynor. It should be understood that Tammany will profit little frtm Gaynor' election, and the defeat of the ret of its ticket. Tammany will have a hard row t.i hoe for one thing without a friendly District Attornry.

The whole tone of the rally, under the auspices of the Intsrurban Suffrage Council was kept within conservative limits as a tacit protest against the Pankhurst meeting, and the militant methods Involved. It Is understood that so fixed was the determination of Clarence Mackay, chairwoman of the Platform Committee, to keep the demands reasonable and dignified, that she refused to permit the insertion of two planks which verged on sensationalism or suggested, partisanship. It was on this score that the "white slave" question was untouched, and that the platform, which Mrs. Mackay read, asked such action as concerns woman's position as a civic and national factor. The platform had been drawn up by Kate II.

"Properly directed (only by suggestion.) she is the greatest aid to progress and happiness that we have In life.

But treated without discretion, she loses the opportunity for usefulness and sometimes wrecks everything she strikes.
