SITUATION BETWEEN TURKS
AND BULGARS IS CRITICAL
LONDON, Aug. 19.-The situation be
tWeen Bulgaria and Turkey is becoming
critical. Prince Said Hatlm, the Turkish
Brand vizier, admits that the Turks have
occupied Demotlca. twenty-five miles
south of Adrianople, and other strategto
points on the right 6ank of the Maritxa
river; but he explains this was-done only
fof the protection of the railway which
runs along the stream.
Said Ilallm denied that the Turks hav
occupied Dedeaghatch, the terminus of
the railroad on the CJulf of Enos, or that
they are advancing on Oumuljlnak, to
tho northwest. The Porte clearly has
not the slightest Intention of abandon
ing Adrianople, where Envcr Boy has
n army of 30,000 troops, which soon will
be Increased to 400,000.
