FORTY-FOURTH YEAR SANDUSKY, OHIO, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 5, 1911, LAST EDITION NUMBER 30d, WRECKED AFTER LEAVING S CHEW IS TAKEM F ROM GOVERNMENT BREDGF MAUMEE Landing Is Attempted But Troops Are Forced to Retire With Loss of 15 Men TRIPOLI SURRENDERS AFTER BOMBARDMENT Report of Sinking of Italian Cruiser Which Struck Mine at Tripoli Unconfirmed, t ____- CONSTANTINOPLE, October 5. exciterrent has been caus- ed by a report thst the Turkish fleet 'las been destroyed in a nav- al engagement at Mitylcne. Af- ter haying sunk c1- captured all vessels the Italians are said to have landed on the island. Heavy firing is said to have bsen heard off the but the cabi- net remains silent. The British, German and Russian ambassadors conferred with grand vizier all day urging him to submit to Italy. Troops Are Repulsed. October received here today state Italian troops were repulsed with a loss of 15 w'len they sought to make a landing at Prevesa. The powers are bending every effort from the attack upon Eureopean Turkey. An unconfirmed report says an Italian cruiser ran on a mine at Tripoli and sank. Only the meagerest details have reached here as to the bombardment of Prevesa but it has caused the great- est uneasiness. Increasing unrest is leported m Albania, Montenegro and Bulgaria. Thej are prepared to at- tack Turkey should the Italians land. All foreign capitals are constantly in communication in regard to the situation. Many rumors aie circulated today regarding, the Italian Turko war but what is actually occurring is a mys- tery: From Constantinople comes a .report that the Turkish fleet de- fetroyed in the Aegean sea. This is not eonfirmed. Fall, of "Tripoli. ROME, Oct. has fallen. "Without the loss of a single life, and following a bombarjjfljpnt which re- sembled peaceful ferget practice in its passionless delibeiation and care to avoid unnecessary destruction of property, the white flags ol suriender today appeared on the forts and min- arets of the Moslem stronghold which bowed before the might of the Italian gunners. After fighting a losing struggle against the heavy guns of the wai- ships, the Turkish troops abandoned their demolished fortifications and re- treated outside the city, while Italy'? flag, borne in triumph by a large landing party, was flung from the badly damaged governor's palace. Italy had occupied the Turkish city. The bombardment bringing about this epoch marking event in the history was extended over more than a day, was extended over tion to give the Turks an opportunity to surrender to prevent an} unneces- sary loss of life. Several of the Turks who heroically defended their ancient fortresses were wounded, but the Ital- ian fleet and its men escaped without damage. The information the victory came to Rome by wheless from Admiral Au- brey on board the flagship Guiseppe Garibaldi, and when the news was officially announced by special edi- tions of the evening papers, the crowds in the sheets went wild with enthu- siasm. Processions of people "bear- ing torches and headed by bands, are marching through the principal streets of the city, giving vent to their pent- up enthusiasm by the noisiest dem- onstration the city has seen since 1870. The first shot was directed at the governor's palace and it hit the mark The response from the palace and the Amelie Sultana foits was imme- diate, but the aim poor. The Geiibaldi continued to hammer at the governor's palace, while the Varse and the Perrurnio turned then- attention to the fortifications One of the first shots from the Varse went clashing through the Turkish light- house, sending a shower of stones and dust in every direction. Thp for- tification neat the lighthouse replied with smaller guns, but did no dam- age. The bombardment was resumed Wednesday morning It was than that of Tuesday, but the ojtcr forth had been put out of LOCATED RELATIVES, T T TOP LLlDlu NOT WARMED OVER.
