EDMONTON COUNCIL ENDORSES AMBITIOUS CARS REFUSED IMES MAN DOESN'T THINK THEY SHOWED, UP SO VERY WELL London, Dec. corrpupondent of he Times has been with tho Turkish ttrmy since the 'battle or l-ulp Hurgns, and sends n criticism of Unitarians. Among other things he says: "Much has been written about the jxcellencu ot the Bulgarian artillery and the, superiority of CrctiKot guns jver the Krupp. All this is fantasy. The Orousots were better nerved hut lot of better quality than ihc KrupiiK. 1'he Bulgarian gunners, however, arc lot extraordinary good shots, in fact they might be called, bad. They did tot split Infantry advance property, id were timid i" advancing their Uterlcs to really offociive ranges. "Tho Bulgarian infantry nro very slow but are well trained and make good uso of the ground in the ap- proach. They arc very useful with Jie rifle ami of much the same fiRht- ing calibre an the European Turks. They owe their success over the Inl- ler only to the fact thai they (fitter trained and more capably com- manded. "The infantry showed none of the .ndividual sagacity which was the greatest the Japanese in the war with Russia, "H would be argued, in spite of these criticisms that, the Bulgarian army succeeded, but this success wag partial only. -Vow we Intow (he qiml WILL TAKE OVER WORK DONE PREVIOUSLY BY GOVERN- FROM NEW DAYTON ity cf the army they to flight early in the campaign and see how they failed to profit by tho successes; how they gave the beaten Turkish army time to re-organize and dig it- self into the C'natalaja; how they fail- ed before Adrianople. And begin to realize how indifferently the Bul- garians have waged their successful war. "The Turkish army, operating as a field army had to be beaten. That it has been beaten by armies really un- equal to the responsibility ensuing haa produced today's extraordinary situation when the strong man of the allies finds himself in a far less ad vantageous poaition than those whom he took into this adventure."
