Turkey is expelling Greeks wholesale from (Constantinople and around the Dardanelles. An uncensored Constantinople dispatch to the Chronicle reports that the Balkan line of fortification was cap-tured by the-allies TuesdajCl According to this account the Tor kish fleet, operating from the Dardanelles, was assisting to repel theBul-1 Parian attack. The Bulgarians feigned a sudden retreat and were followed by the Turks.' The Turkish warships, not realizing the situation, continued their bombardment and Inflicted heavy loss on their own men. The Greek fleet In the Gulf of I Saros supported the Bulgarians, who faced about, drove home their1 attack and thereby captured the forts.- . Thirteen thousand Greeks landed on the Aegean coast at Alvajth on Monday. The Turkish position is considered precarious all along the line. The capture of Bulair haa not been v confirmed by other sources. A Dardanelles dispatch to the Daily Mall dated Tuesday describes a similar Bulgarian ruse ifs having occurred on the previous Friday, with the result that the Bulgarian batteries' on the slope of the Kurudagh opened a terrific shrapnel fire. The Turks fled back to "the Shelter of the Bulair entrenchments with a loss .of three thour sand killed and wounded. The .Constantinople correspondent of the Dally News describes the demoralization of the Turks at Bulair, where, he says, the first fighting proved the vaunted Asiatic troops to be worthless. The correspondent adds that the . Galllpoli armies are going to pieces exactly like Abdullah Pasha's host at Lule Burgas and that chaos reigns at Tchatalja.' Schefket Pasha." he declares, realizes that Turkey is untitle to- continue the war. k, J Nature Gives Warning Statistics show that thousands I A advanced stage, without knowing" many careieealT neglect themselves l makes them aware that their kidneys are diseased.

' - WASHINGTON, Feb. J 5. The clash between Director John Barrett of the Pan-American Union and the State Be partment over Barrett's proposal for a "mediation commission" to bring about peace In Mexico Is hardly less a sensa tion In official circles here than the Mexican situation itself. The -two affairs divide attention today. ' . " , Th State Department's memorandum Fast night, characterizing Director Barrett's proposal as "mischievous activity, sentlmentlllty and amateur politics." dropped into official circles like a bomb.. Coupled with the protest of the American colony in Mexico City, forwarded by Am bassador Wilson, it produced a situation, startling to say the least. The Pan-Amerlcart Union Is supported by the United States and the republics of Central and South America. Each pays towards its support by contributions based on population, and each nation has one vote in the selection of a director. BARRETT IS SCORED. - At 12:50 this morning the 8tate Department issyed the following statement: . "Ambassador Wilson telegraphs and asks If anything can be done to restrain John Barrett's mischievous activities. "He states that, Mr. Barrett's utterances are being published In Mexico City and are producing a bad effect on the situation, which calls for anything rather than sentimentality and amateur politics. "The Ambassador adds that the American colony at Mexico ' City resents Mr. Barrett's utterances and protests, against them." ' Barrett proposed mediation in a letter addressed to President Taft and Congress. There was nothing unkind or disrespectful in his statement of the facta as he saw them, and found much favor in both houses of Congress. Barrett is president of the Pan-American Union and has spent the greater part of his life studying conditions. Both political and Industrial, in Latin-America, When the State Department statement was called to his attention, Barrett made the following reply: . "This announcement from Mexico I tonlshes me, and I believe It must be founded'om a misconception of mv sug gestion for an International commission and what Inspired It. My only purpose was Informally and unofficially to proposs an alternative for actual intervention which would end the hostilities in Mexico protect the lives of 'foreigners and adjust the whole question in a peaceful way, sat is factory to the United States, Mexico and Latin-America. . "My suggestion, moreover, waa made upon the request of many prominent men. who felt aa I did. and only waa to be acted upon In the event that Intervention seemed inevitable. - ' Director Barrett-later today gave out a further statement defending his media- tton proposal. He said he honestly bep tleved hat his action would strengthen the attitude of the administration against Intervention. "To brand as amateur politics the sug gestion of mediation by a great and accepted broad and practical agency of In ternational friendship, and to call 'as mlsctila.vous activity and sentimentality the application of international co-opera tion to stop immediately actual lighting and protect lives, seems to be the result or misunderstanding of what I actually had in mind," said the direr lor. "In view of the severity of the complaint of the American -colony and the attitude of the Slate Department. I am forced In' self-defense to make public a fact that I would Infinitely prefer never to mention, were 1 not the subject of such criticism. 1 GET ANONYMOUS LETTER. "Late last night, and before I had been Informed of the report from Mexico City. I -received ah anonymous letter. As best I can quote and recall. It was aa follows: "'As a friend of yourself and' your Southern Republics, J want to warn you. You are In danger of attack from two opposite sources on account 'of the statement you have given out In regard to the settlement of the Mexican situation. " 'One of these is a certain influence that wants Intervention and military occupation and is bitter against the President and State Department for their holding out against Intervention. Having so far failed in that direction. It la flow Incensed at your Suggestion and may turn on you, "both here and in Mexico. The Other Influence is a man In a- great departs ment. who cordially dislikes you and-and everything Boutli American." "I cannot believe that tills anonymous statement is worthy of actual credence. I have the most profound respect and regard for the head of the department to which this letter ' may have referred, and I don't believe for a moment' that it re-fers to him. It must refer to some subordinate,, but who be Is, I cannot imagine" " VEKY CAKIXE.SS. SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 15. Mrs. E. L.

BOMBARDMENT GROWS wFIERCER IN MEXICO CITY Diaz Refuses 1o Entertain Proposal of Peace Until Madero Resigns (Continued know President Madero's stubborn constancy of purpose were pessimistic today regarding his resignation. Others believed he would yield to the persistent demands of men high In public life. . Francisco de la Barra, former provisional president, played peacemaker today and promises to become as notable In this crisis as hs was In the adjustment of the differences of the Madero revolution, which terminated lh the overthrow of Porfirlo Diaz. The presence of war vessels of three foreign nations at the port of Vera Cruz and the developments of the past six days appear to have convinced even the Mexican cabinet ministers that it would be a mark of forbearance should foreign Intervention be delayed much longer. This has been bluntly urged on President Madero as a motive for his resignation. PAXIC IS INCREASED. The aggressiveness of the rebels dur- scenes of Tame among the peopU At .

Before midnight Diaz, taking advantage of the unltghted, streets, extended his lines for several blocks and shortly afterward engaged the federal troops from his new positions In the so-called "Juarez colony," which Is thickly populated with foreigners. Groups of rebel soldiers deployed along Versailles street and from the roofs of buildings on Turin street and Barcelonla street. For a time they maintained an almost incessant rifle and machine gun fire at the federal outposts stationed far out in what had been called the "neutral zone." - FIRST.XJGIIT BOMBARDMENT. BJrom time to time the rebel cannon threw projectiles In all directions, try ing to draw the federal fire. They succeeded between 3 and 4 o'clock in Awakening two federal batteries into brisk action, and a sharp artillery duel lasting a half 'hour gave the city its first experience of a night bombardment. From 4 o'clock until dawn there was practical silence throughout the city. At daybreak the rebel cannon got a renewed reply from the government lines and the battle was again in full swing. The announcement of the resignation, of President Madero was made on the authority of the British legation at a late hour last night, founded on the fact that de la Barra's visit to President Madero had been followed by an immediate,' cessation of firing hv hnth sides. The officials i teok this as an Indication that de la ! Barra had succeeded lri prevailing on the President, to resign and announced it as a' fac't. General Huerta and other federal commanders again assured President Madero this morning that the government forces .would ' win. This is thought to have been the cause of the President's refusal -te-reslgn. FIGHT DURING NIGHT.) "The rebel guns in the arsenal-were In spasmodic action duflrig the greater part of the night, occasionally developing a very galling nre wnicn provoked vigorous reply ,from.the federal artillery. . The incessant bombardment of the National Palace and the lierce reply of the federals were construed as Indicating that President Madero has not decided to resign. It waa declared in so'fSe' quarters this morning the report of his retirement was only a strategic movement usrvjhe part ot the government N For the Ilrst time, since tne remarK- able battle began there was a heavy sustained Bring lasting half ian hour In the total darkness shortly after j o'clock this morning. The hostile forces at daybreak faced each other in virtually the sume positions they have held all through the week. The exodus of the populace from the districts under fire was even greater than that of yesterday.1 There was a constant procession oi people, hurrying through , the streets to the suburbs long before drawn and this lasted until after daylight. The offices of the lmparclal were romanileered by the federal troops this morning for use in their operations. . ' RESIGNATION IS URGED. j ' Francisco de la Barra, former Pro visional President, professed ignorance this morning as to President Madero's intentions, lie deciarea me question of his resignation had been submitted to President Madero nad that the, matter at present had gone no further. . A few minwtas . later ae la oirra, accompanied". b'fc General Felipe Angeles, a federal comander, went to the Palace for a conference wun jmkukiu. Following the conference de la Barra announced 'that' Madero had nuUiorlied him and General Angeles to confer with Felix Dlaa and Genertil Manuel Mondragon on the question of arranging an armlstlcv. Madero proposed tho naming of a commission by each party to contrive a solution of tho situation. - . URGES ARMISTICE. De la Barra Imedlately made a visit to the ' rebel position ana OTieo with Dla. pointing out tne aiiiicui-ties of the situation, and urging the acceptance of an armistice in view oi the imminence or foreign- inw-rven-tlon. ' . Diaz replied to ie ib jmit that lie could not consider an ar-' inlstlce, and that lie would enter Into no negotiations for peace until he waa officially notified of the resignation of President Madero, the Vice-President and the . entire cabinet, . Diax's reply was then submitted to President Madero. v The Mexican minister at Havana telegraphed to the government today asking permission for Cuban marines from the cruiser. cudk a " " land and go to Mexico City as a guard for the Cuban legation. J DE LA O TO FIGHT. The rebels extended their linen shortly after 7 o'clock this morning, and-there was a constant shifting of positions by the federal troops. "J nis resulted In .a fresh exodus of those who had remained on the fringes of the danger sone. A, large force of rebels .commanded by - General Gerfe-veve de la O is epcamped a few miles outside ot he-capita I, in readiness to obey the orders of Diax."

INSIST ON RESIGNATION. It is strongly -Intimated that-the special meeting of the Senate called this morning Insisted on President Madero's resignation. ' Many of the Senators did not attend, as they declared they were unable to traverse the city. V The special session was called as the result of a letter from Pedro Las-curain, the foreign minister, to the First Vice President indicating that the members of the Upper House should assemble to discuss means of settling the present situation. Sonor Lasouraln declared, nftcr the meeting of the Senate, that it was ry no means certain Madero would resign. Tho President lie said, was anxious to end Uie lif-- ficulties in a patriotic manner if possible without farther bloodshed- bnt this appeared impossible? EXTEND "AliTIIXERV FIRE.- tillery fire, sending challenge shells In all directions to draw out the federal artillery and launching many heavy shells in the -direction of the National Palacev The rebel artillery occasionally threw shells Jdlrectly at the Palace, where the Senators were endeavoring to devise a means of bringing about peace. The general bombardment of the federal positions continued steadily throughout the morning. After an executive meeting In tho Chamber of Deputies, the majority of ttye Senate left for the National Palade to demand the resignation of President Madero. They-were accom panied by Francisco de la Barra and the Spanish Minister to Mexico. A series of sharp engagements occurred at various points. AH . -the federal forces- came Into a. tion at times 'with machine guns :- and Infantry firing, to which the rebels sharply replied. The government batteries in Alameda Park came into action as well as another near the Colonla railroad station and still another on San Juan de Letran street, to the east of the rebel possessions. Madero's House Is Burned by Rebels MEXICO CITY, Feb. IB. The rebels obtained their first personal revenge yesterday, when they burned the private house of President .Madero, located at Berlin and Liverpool streets. It was a handsome . -i ncumbency of Madero had become one of the show plares of the capital. V The rebels had driven a detachment of federals in retreat along Barcelona street.
