TURKEY AND THE POWERS.
. ALREADY "REPENTANT. BUT MUST GO ON. SAY THE ENTENTE. ■"SOFIA. November 2. . Sir Louis Mallet, ttiitisli Ambassador at. Constantinople, interviewed the Gran J
and pleaded his innocence. He appealed to the Powers not to take irremediable steps. BORDEAUX, November 3. Official: Replying to the Entente's demands, Turkey has confined herself to proposing the recall of the Turkish warships, and expresses a desire to remain at peace with the Entente. Tho latter, however, are of opinion that Turkey will have difficulty in remaining passive. Moreover, the proposal would entail the same disadvantages as open war, since it would compel the Entente to detach a portion of their forces to guard against future aggressions. Turkey not having deemed it her duty to prove the sincerity of her intention's, the Ambassadors requested their passports. Advices from Algeria, Tunis, and Morocco show that the Moslems consider that the Porte has abdicated the sovereignty and independence of the Ottoman Empire, thus enabling Germany to pursue her own selfish ends to the detriment of Islam.
ITALY MAY BE DRAGGED IX. LONDON, November 2. The Rome correspondent of "The Times ' advises that Turkey's attacks upon Russia have caused a profound impression, and it is expected that they will involve the participation of other countries in tho war.

It is also evident that there will be intervention by Rumania and Greece. A TOO LATE APOLOGY. LOXDOX. November 2 (evening). Router reports that the.

Count Von Rcventlow, writing to the ' Deutsche Tagoszeitung,' declares that the moment has arrived for Bulgaria to resume the territority which Servia annexed in the second"Balkan war. THE USUAL LIE. LONDON, November 2. Official: The Austro-German assertion that tho Russian Fleet commenced hostilities against the Turkish squadron is a gross invention, intended to mislead public opinion at Constantinople, which was carefully kept in ignorance of the treacherous attacks on the Russian coasts by Turkish vessels commanded by German officials. BULGARIA ON THE SAFE SIDE. LONDON, November 2. The Balkan correspondent of ' The Times ' understands that Bulgaria will not in any circumstances take up arms against the Entente. MODERN AVAR. PURELY A BUSINESS PROPOSITION. (London "Times' and Sydney 'Sun' Services.) LONDON, November 2. A correspondent describing the Russian Headquarters Staff says:—"There is no romance about modern war, no galloping aides vibrating with excitement. War is now ;i huge business enterprise. The headquarters are situated in a secluded spot in Western Russia, a number of s-.vitches connecting with the main line. Here in cars, living quietly and peacefully, is a group of a hundred men composing the "General Staff. There are a few panting automobiles dashing here and there, and 2.000 Cossacks beyond. Away a hundred miles from this scene of tranquillity extends an enormous chain of Russian front, every point of which is connected by telegraph. These cars here are free from the hurly-burly, and the brains of the army are able to command a prospective of the whole theatre of war."
