of Sultan LARISSA April Is notrnth in the Turkish reports that the have been driven out oi Macedonia It is true that a few of the irregulars who formed part of the expeditionary force have returned to Greek territory but these are men who for some reason have been unable to keep up with the main bodyof the Greeks and consequently they have retreated across the frontier The main body of the irregulars is continuing its successful operations against the Turks and raising the Macedonians against the rule of the sultan of Klpnrl Confirmed The report of the capture of Kipnri north of Baltino by the Greeks is confirmed aud in addition the main forces of the irregulars of the expedi tionary forces have advanced as far as Pigavitza where there is ah important bridge across a mountain torrent From that point Chief Davelis who is direct ing the operations has sent a xnent consisting of the Italians under Colonel Cipriani the well known So cialist leader to the left of Pigavitza with instructions to attack Zlovof another town occupying and important jtrategic position The Italians ac complished their task in due time with considerable skill They are now at Zlovof and placing it in a position to withstand aii attack from the Turks Simultaneously with ordering the movement againstZlovof Chief Dave1 lis sent another body of irregulars to the right from Pigavitza under orders to invest and capture Sitovon another town occupying a strategic position of importance This movement was also successfully carried out the Graeks killing seven Turks and capturing five Turkish prisoners during the assault which was brilliantly conducted aud brought to an end by tho blowing up of the Turkish block house with dy Drove Turku From Place to Place After the capture of Zlovof the Greek irregular force operating m that direction continued its advance so tar as Kritudes Blisia and Kourduzi The Greeks have been instructed to hod the latter place at all costs as it com mands the right approach to Grevena which is held by a strong Turkish force infantry cavalry and artillery and which is the objective point of the Greek expedition At Kritodes Plisia and heavy fighting occurred between the Greeks and Turks before the places mentioned were captured but the in vading irregulars of Greece proved themselves more than a match for the trained Turkish troops aud drove tin latter before them from place to place Carried Villages byAuault Another columiToTTjFreek irregulars started for Macedonia from Zarkos half way between Larissa and Tnkhala Shortly after crossing the frontier the Greeks were confronted by strong forces of Turkish regular troops sta tioned in weil defended positions in the villages of Auakourra and Munakrrarni Sharp fighting followed at both place but m

through the middle of the Greek forces by way of the Mace donia villages capture by the Greek irregulars and Zarkoe in Thes from which point the expedition started iato Macedonia It will there fore be seen that the Greeks have achieved another success in occupying strategic positions by means of the irregnlars within Turkish territory Before War Formally Been Declared The Greek irregnlars now hold all of the four roads leading from the Thes salonuiu frontier in the direction of Grevena which may be looked upon H the Turkish center Another fea ture of the operations which looks favorable to the Greeks is in the fact that according to reports received here from the leaders of the irregular forces at least 1000 mountaineers of the conn try traversed by the Greeks have joined the irregular forces and it is further stated the Albanians are deserting from the Turkish forces near Mt Olypipna and escaping into Thesealy and are joining the Greek forces The whole campaign was well con ceived and has been executed with t08T MANY TROOPS Evidently Doing Great Execu tion In Macedonian Territory LONDON April special dis patch from Constantinople says that in the last encounter between the Greek Irregulars and the Turkish regular troops the latter lost J10 killed and wounded Thedispmlch adds that Kdhera Pasha the Turkish commandermchief has telegraphed to the Turkish authorities at Constantinople that unless he w or dered to cross the frontier and take up a position on the plains of his position will be untenable owing to the constant attacks of the jreek insurgents who have entered the Turk ish lines by stealth and also in conse quence of the excitement among the troops especially the Albanians The Turkish ministers it is further an nounced have informed the sultan that war should bo declared against Greece The srfltan who objects to war has not yet replied to this recom mendation of his ministers Fired on Anilriati CANKA April torpedc boats were fired on by thu
