Athens April S". Although Crown
Prince Constantino hopes to assemble
20000 men at 1'lmrsiilu it is certain
that he will be unable to fight a battlo
In that vicinity. Instead lie will bo
forced to retreat to the Otbrys moun-
tains about twenty miles nearer
Athens. Many foreign military ex-
perts believe that tho Greek nrmy will
melt away during a further retreat.
The powers have already exchanged
views on the situation in Thessaly.
Russia however hits declared that no
kind of intct vontlon is possible before
the Turks have thoroughly established
I lie losses during the recent lighting
near Larlssn are as yet unknown but
are believed to be very heavy. Gen-
eral Smoleiiaki's brigade hus fallen
back on Karditza to protect the left
wing of the Greek army.
London April ?7. The correspond-
ent of the Times at Volo says tho gen
eral Impression there is that the cam
paign )s ended and that tho center of
Interest has been transferred from the
seat of var to the diplomatic chancel-
leries of Europe.
London April 87. The most serious
feature in tho Gracco-Turklsh emer-
gency Is the revolutionary feeling
displayed at Athens. Kx-Mlnister
Kalli leader of tho principal opposi-
tion group In the legislative assembly
threatened that unless the military
stall was changed ho would issuo a
proclamation to the people. Ills state-
ments acted like oil upon tire and tho
popular excitement has llarcd up.
Crowds assembled In tho streets to
discuss them and wanted to march to
the palace to read thorn to King
George Fortunately heavy showers
drovu tho people indoor.
M. Delyannls keenly alive to the
necessity of immediate uetlou had an
audleivic with the king and after the
interview announced that the staff of
the crown prince would be recalled
and that ex-Minister Kalli with three
of his nominees General Smolensk!
General Mavromlachell and Colonel
Dlmopoulo would bt appointed to re-
place them. M. Ralll in a published
"The moment Constantino arrived
at the seat of the war the solo thought
of the responsible commanders was
not to attack or withstand the Turks
but to olTcot a sale retreat If necus-
sary. AH orders emanated from tho
palace. Those Issued by anyone else
were ignored. When dispatches were
sent to General Mavromlachell ho was
not where ho was supposed to bo hav-
ing been moved on by superior orders."
.M. Ralll attended tho council at the
Tho Dally Telegrams Athens cor
"AH of M. Ralll'c conditions have
been accepted. Tho king gives carto
blanche to his ministers. As tho pub-
lic begins to learn the truth anger
against tho palace party Increases
and a feeling of hostility against M.
Delvautils Is steadily growing. Late
to-night (Monday) crowds are parad-
ing menacingly in the vicinity of tho
"It Is reported on good authority
that arrangements are heluir made to
enable tho royal family to leave the
country hastily In case of necessity.
I'eoplo had generally credited the ru-
mors that tho orown prince would bo
recalled and that the government was
willing to consider peace overtures.
It is Impossible to say what will hap-
pen when It Is known that the war is
to lie continued and the crown prince
retained in command.
"M. Kalli bellevos the abandonment
of Tyrnavo and Larlssa to have been
not only unnecessary but most Illy
advised as it endangered the safoty of
General Smolensk! a column which
however fortunately succeeded In
making Its way to l'harsala." -
The dispatches of the special corre
spondents consist for tlfe most part of
additional details of the Greeks' dis-
comfiture. The Turkish plans arc not
yet revealed. There is no doubt now
that tho Crown Prince Constantino or
dered the bridges to bo destroyed be-
fore the Greeks abandoned Lnri&sa
but damage could not be done boyoud
what could be easily repaired by tho
Turks. It seems equally certain that
the ilreokn only escaped a crushing de-
feat with returning daylight by pre-
The news from Kpirus is conflicting.
It seems certain that tho Turks have
reoccupied 1'entcplgadla and it Is not
Improbable that tho Oreeks have re-
treated to Arta showing that the
Turks allowed them to advance to
Penteplgadla solely in order to destmy
The Athens correspondent of the
Times confirms the report of the ap
pointment of General HmolensUl as
chief of staff of the Greek army iu
Thessaly and adds:
"Colonel Stalkos and Limbritls and
Major Constantinldes have been re-
called from Crete to serve on the stuff
of the crown prince. The ministerial
Palingenesis announces that all the
oflloers of Constantino's force have
been recalled. A Ulegran. received
to-day (April ?0) states that tlio Turks
nrs within an liour's march from Volo.
Tho Greek troops havo been with-
drawn from tho town and are taking
the wounded from tire hospitals.

new superintendent of tho southern
division of tho Santa Fe laughed
heartily this morning when shown a
dispatch from Ardmoro which staled
that the Santa Fe was not getting as
much Texas cattle business as it had
earlier in the season. "There is some
trutli in that" ho said "and the rea
son is that wo havo just about cleaned
out the cattlo in boiuo districts dowu
there. Our Texas cattlo shipments
this season havo been remarkably
heavy ou tho southurn division aud we
have had neither accident or delay.
Wo had over 4000 cars of cattle from
tbe Gulf Colorado and Santa Fe at

sane period last year They ure still
coming at the rate of from live to

a force of 3&0 men working on the
track between Arkansas Citv and Pur-
cell. Everything hss been running
like clock work and he expects to hnvn
tire job done in abort time. Mr. Do-
lan referring to the extent of the
southern division said;
'This Is the largest division of the
system and comprises the following
line: Nowton to Purcoll Win field to
