A London cablegram, carried by
the Associated Press, says: Monte
negro claims the first victory in the
Balkan war by the capture of the
strong Turkish position on Detchich
mountain whose commander sur
rendered with the bulk of his force.
Montenegrins also crossed the fron
tier near Berena, and, according to
the Turkish account, have been re
pulsed. The situation meanwhile is
as puzzling as before. No declara
tion of war has been issued by the
other allied Balkan states, anri thor
is no news yet of their ministers hav
ing left Constantinople. It can not
therbfore be definitely said whether
Montenegro has acted independently,
with the motive of forcing a conflict
so as to render the powers' efforts to
preserve peace nugatory or in accor
dance with a strategic plan arranged
by the Balkan coalition.
Governor Woodrow Wilson, in his
speeches at Topeka, Kan., and
Kansas City, Mo., replied to Colonel
Roosevelt's request that the demo
cratic nominee "prove or retract the
declaration that the United States
Steel trust is behind the third party
programme for regulating trusts,"
by reiterating his statement that the
trust is "behind the third party pro
gram in thought."
A Podogorltza, Montenegro cable
gram, carried by the Associated
Press, says: The Montenegrin army
opened war against Turkey by at
tacking a strong Turkish position op
posite Podgoritza. Prince Peter, the
youngest son of King Nicholas, fired
the first shot. This was the signal
for firing all along the lino, and an
artillery duel ensued. Within twenty-one
minutes five Turkish guns
were silenced and the Turks re
treated from their first position on
Mount Planinitza. By noon the
Turks had evacuated the mountain.
Podgoritza is the headquarters of
the Montenegrin forces and amid the
enthusiastic cheering of the people,
King Nicholas, with Prince Mirko,'
nis second son ana staff, rode early
to the mountains to survey the posi
tions. The Montenegrin guns had
been placed the night before and
strong detachments of mmi vara
held in reserve should the Turkish
lurueu prove larger tnan the scouts'

That the Montenegrin fire wa3
effective was proved by the quick re
treat of the Turks. After they evac

vance of Montenegrin infantry was
ordered. Covered by a concentrated
artillery fire the Infantry moved to

Mr. Roosevelt, Bpeaking at Osh
kosh, Wis., attacked Senator La Fol
lette, saying: "It has been a matter
of regret to me thatSenator La Fol
follette, who has done so much for
the progressive cause, 'has' felt that
because hia antagonism . to me he
must range himself against the pro
gressive movement in this campaign,
thereby giving his old time enemies,
the reactionaries, a much needed
support which they have acknowl
edged by the first praise they have
given him in twenty years. It has
been asserted that 1 did not take
sides with the La Fpllette people in
their campaign in Wisconsin in
1904. .This' is an error."
Colonel Roosevelt then read from
a letter he vrrntn tn Honrp-A "R f!nr-
telyou, then chairman of the republi
can national committee, during the
1904 campaign, in which he said
that no favoritism must be shown to
the "stalwarts" in Wisconsin. In
his speech and writings he said ho
had praised Senator La Follette's
work, and he added until he became
a candidate last year the senator
had never spoken of him publicly
save on term3 of approval. He
quoted Senator La Follette as saying
in a speech in April, 1907, that Colo
nel Roosevelt could have another
term. From the senator's speech in
ine senate of July last the colonel
read several extracts in which Mr.
"La Follette commended him highlv.
"These were the views," Colonel
Roosevelt continued, "that Senator
La Follette held of my administra
tion during the time that my admin
istration was in power and while ho
was a senator of the United States.
These are the viewa that he ex
pressed in the senate after my ad
ministration bftrl flnsrL nnd but
little more than a year ago. I am
still the same man that I was in 1907
and in 1911. I have not changed.
If I deserved the praise that the
senator gave me, praise that I very
deeply appreciated and for which I
was very sincerly grateful, I deserve
no less now."
