Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 1, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta >,  f : VOLUME XI. LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA. / ^TUESDAY,. OCTOBER 1, 1918 DUMBER 247 TURKEY BEING [Turks Are Now Sending Out Feelers for Peace-General Allenby Pushes on to Damascus, an Advance of 75 Miles Since Last'Week-Allies Making Rapid Progress on the Macedonia Front in Serbia. LONDON, Oct. 1.--(Reuter's)-Reuter's agency learns that, according to reliable reports received in London, Bulgaria, regarding the armistice discussion, indicated that she was not adverse to attacking Turkey. Bulgaria, anent this, however, explained that she could only act militarily in cooperation with the allies. TURKEY PUTS OUT PEACE FEELERS LONDON, Oct. I.-"Feelers" have been y put put by [Turkey for an armistice, the Evening News today says it understands. \ .While these advances are said to be -semi-official, no account will be taken of them until an official report is received, the article says. ^> ^ ^ LONDON* Oct. I-In the region east of Veles, Serbian troops Sunday severely defeated the Bulgarians near Char-iQsvoi six miles from t^ie Bulgarian border* ^l^rb^ah dffr dal statement of Monday re(>ort6. that; the �'Bulgarian forces were cut in two parts. GENERAL ALLENBY REACHE8 DAMASCUS PARIS, Oct. 1.-Gen. Allenby'* troop* are now two and a half miles from Damascus and French cavalry is advancing on Beyrout, according ' "to Msrcel Hutln, of the Echo de Paris. . -.. _ O London, Oct. 1.-(Canadian Press JDispatcli from Reuter's.)-The Balkans have again upheld their reputation as a land of endless possibilities. .This^is the unanimous verdict of the 3>ress on the bewildering rapidity of the developments. While the situation is hard to follow there can no longer be any doubt that Bulgaria's surrender means a knocking out of the.keystone of the whole edifice df the! so-called European scheme,' the collapse of which will entail the ruin of the grahdoise Berlin-Bagdad plans, �which,have long dangled before German eyes ail/a compensation to the people for the sacrifices they have made. All writers emphasize that the Yrangement is'purely military and is dictated by the heeds of'the present situation. The allies have no intention of interfering in the domestic affairs of the Bulgarians, who' can keep Ferdinand if, they want him, the payers- agree. Hitherto, there has been no indication .of Turkey'^ attitude, but with the main line between'^Serlin and Constantinople cut and the Danube open �o the allies, she is isolated from Germany, except by a- round about route, very uncertain, by way of Rou-mania or Odessa, which may be blocked any moment. Moreover, with the Bulgarian railways in their posses; ion, the .'allies are able for the first time, to seriously threaten Constantinople and to roach the Black Sea, turning/'the^Jtositipns in the Dardanelles-and .the Bosphorous. Not the smallest effect of Bulgaria's defection is \the automatic liberation of two-thirds of Serbia's territory^, while the  possession of Uskub Sives1the allies a footing on a railway offering access.across the heart �f old Serbia striking direct into Austria. v ' . Bulgaria's attitude toward Austria arouses considerable speculation. Austria has been comparatively safe on the Belgrade front hitherto "and has been able to concentrate the bulk of rVhor forces in Austria. With the _/ihreat of,armies from the south, Austria is faced with the dilemma of Weakening the Plave front with the dead certainty of an Italian onslaught. Austria's plight and - peril are fully recognized by Germany. Already suggestions" are being made that the Germans should shorten their line on the  west front, evacuating Belgium and France to the Mouse'��line. Austrian Official. Vienna, Sept. 30.-The following statement was issued by the war office tonight: "On the Bulgarian front we evacuated, after local engagements, a strip > of territory immediately west of Lake Ochridtt. ,." .�t recur, our task #ould be but half 'accomplished.'1 RETURN TO WORK Fernie Voted Against-Peculiar Situation in Single Shift -Dispute.
