ARCH AND JEWELRY  Loss  CONSTANTINOPLE, April    17.—War  with Greece has been declared.  Following the news of the incursion of the Greeks into Turkish territory the council 6f ministers held a meeting at the palace to take action on the matter.  It was considered that the action of the Greeks was tantamount to an act of war, and they advised the immediate opening of hostilities.  The council of ministers then made a declaration that war had broken out and ordered Edhem Pash«, the Turkish military commander, to take the offensive, and the assembly gave his passports to Trince Maurocordate, the Greek envoy  offers to retire the Turkish troops on the frontier if Greece will retire hers from the frontier and from Crete.  NIGHT ASSAULT_BY TURKS.  Greek ForceB Make a Magnificent De  fence and Turks Are Repulsed.  -  ATHENS, April 18—1 a. m.-An official despatch from Larissa dated at 9 o’clock last (Saturday) night says that the Turks finder cover of darkness are assaulting the Greek forces at Mt. Analipsis with great tlcrceness.  The Greek resistance so far has been magnificent and spirited. The Greeks stil! maintain their positions. The firing began at Grltsovall, where the fighting commenced in an attempt of the Turks  Somersworth Officials Follow in Teams and on a  Special Engine.  HAS NOT YET BEEN CAUGHT.  HOSEMAN KELLY BADLY CUT.  The wholesale jewelry and tailoring ■ectioji of JBo.ston was visit'd last night by the most stubborn fire that the firemen have had to fight for many a day. And in its visitation, the damage that there was done by water, fire and smoke Is estimated at from $103,900 to $125,000.  The biaxe was discovered in 60 .Summer atteet by Patrolman Coombs of the Rur-glar Protective Company, who rang In an alarm from Box 52 it 12:15 a. m. When Engine 26 arrived first on the scene the whole front of the building was in a •blaze. A second alarm was rung in from Box 52 at 12:10, and immediately following it came an automatic alarm.

Sawyer, a jeweller, had half of this stofo until recently, and had just gotten all of his effects removed. His half was vacant at the time of the tire.  There was a large stock of hall clocks in the New iia\en Company’s store and these, It seems, will be a total loss.  The firemen were eloing their utmost to confine the tire to the building in which it originated, and prevented it from getting above the first floor in that building.  They ware lighting from the side of the Freeman National Bank building at 62 Summer street and were Just in control on this side when a great blaze burst out of the basement window of the building at 52 Summer street, whose basement and lirst floor were occupied by Smith, Patterson & Co., wholesale jewellers and lm-  (Contlnued on Page 5.)

Bank President Says He Is Sure Kelly Is the Man-Two Women Who Saw the Man With the Famous White Bag Say He Was Not Kelly—Hardigan and Briggs Released on Murder Charge—Kelly’s Record in Amesbury.  ufter passing the time of day asked if the train stopped at Wolfeboro Junction for ten minutes. He was told that it did, and  SOMERSWORTH, N. H., April 17.—  \\ hen word was received this afternoon that the men arrested in Waltham could not possibly have been the murderers of    he    said    that    s    ad    right.    Express    Messen-  OashTer Stiekney. the police practically    »er^Fa-11    supposed    that    the    strangerJn-  ubandoned the theory that' there were two men concerned in the tragedy and redoubled their efforts to catch the fugitive supposed to be Joseph E. Kelly, last heard of as flying for Canada as fast as steam could carry him.  Kelly had a room just opposite the bank which commanded a view of the office.  He was there about 12 o’clock yesterday, but no one saw him leave or go Into the bank.  From that time until the man with the bag was seen fit Hoy’s orchard, no one reports having seen hint. Several say he was the man with the bag, among them Joseph Loulccl, Stable Boy Day and John Stone. They are positive that he was the man 'hey saw coming from the orchard about 1 o’clock with Whitten’s buggy.  They saw him drive to the tree where the bundle was left, put it in the buggy and drive away.  Kelly was next seen, according to report, in Berwick square by John Stone.  He was driving fast along the Lebanon road. Stone says he saw Kelly just before 1 o’clock; that the whistle sounded before he was out of sight.  From Berwick to Milton Is thirteen miles over the hardest kind of country road«. The man supposed to be Kelly  tended to leave the train at the junction and paid no further attention to the man, excepting that he appeared to be very nervous.  When Wolfeboro Junction was reached the stranger made no attempt to leave the car, but remained In his seat In the baggage car. When the jtrain was about to leave, Baggage Master Brackett came Into the ear and asked Agent Fall who the stranger was, and the latter said, jokingly, he did not know, but that he should not wonder if he was the party who did the job at Somersworth. Baggage Màster Brackett said, "I guess I will go and look him over.”  As he appproached Kelly he was saluted by the familiar greeting of "Hello, Billy.” After speaking to Kelly a few minute* Brackett returned to the part of the cur where Messenger Fall was and said, “He’s all right. I don’t know his name, but he worked at the Great Palls Hotel last winter.  Mr. Kelly says that Kelly had no bag w ith him.  It is said that a man answering Kelly’s description jumped the Quebec train at Cookshire Junction, Quebec, last night, leaving that place for Montreal at I 4:40 o’clock a. m.

In yesterday's light at Mt. Analipsis the Greeks lost forty men.  putting up the team, which showed every sign of hard usage, at the Phenix House stables, Milton.  At the stable he carried himself very coolly. He said that he had just driven from Farmington, that he was a spectacle pedler, that he was going to Milton Mills and that he would return about 6 o’clock I for his turnout. There was nothing sus-pioiou* In hl.i actions.

Deputy Sheriff McDaniel, William Rich and Edwin Bartlett reached Milton eqrly this morning in search of Kelly. The posse drove to SanbornvUlo, where the Boston & Maine officials tendered McDaniel the use of an engine, and with Engineer Mark Fit* at the throttle they started for North Conway at a record-breaking pace, having been given the right of way ever everything.

This is the last positive trace of the fugitive that has been found. Rumor* of his arrest at Quebec and Montreal have but the police cannot confirm  mysterious man about the Hayes orchard, but two women have now' come forward to say positively that he was not the man from Amesbury.  They are Edith Thompson and a Mrs. Smith, who live on Prospect street. They say they saw the supposed murderer and are positive that it was someone other than Kelly.  The greatest excitement prevails jn town, and upon the arival of each train the little depot of the Boston & Maine railroad is crowded with townspeople, each one eager to hear the latest news from the outside world regarding the chase of Kelly.  None in Somersworth ever dreamed that such a tragedy coulrl be enacted in the broad light of noonday, when people are out and about, and when criminals are supposed to be afraid of detection.  Joseph A. Stiekney, the murdered cashier, was universally known and respected, and to all it seems that the brutal deed was committed by one thoroughly acquainted with his habits. The feeling is growing stronger tonight that Joseph E. Kelly is that person of all persons, and the receipt of the new'« that Kelly had been arrested at Quebec Junction created a decided sensation.  Tonight, in the eyes of the townspeople, Kelly stands branded a murderer and robber, and should the rumor of his arrest prove to be correct, it would not be safa for the authorities to bring their prisoner to this city.  The bank has been closed to business all day, and but very few persons havs been permitted to enter its doors.  PRESIDENT PERKINS ACCUSES KELLY.  The Hon. Albert A. Perkins, the venerable president of the institution, while seated in the bank with the Post representative this afternoon, said that he had no hesitation In saying that he believed Kelly to be guilty of the crime.  "1 don’t know w*hy it is," he said, “but I believe that the blood of my old friend is on the head of that young man.  “Kelly knew Stiekney well, having fre-: quently carried stamps from this instltu-I tion to the postoffice, where his sweet*  1 heart w'a.= employed.” j President Perkins Is not backward in I stating his belief, and even says that Kel-| ly knew, well where the stamps were kept.  “My theory of the murder and robbery,” he ^aid, ”is that Kelly entered the bank dire -fly after Miss Swasey’s departure, he having observed their movements from the window of his room la  (Continued on Paa« L)
