The Daily News of Friday publishes a further series of

tele- grams from Philippopolis, dated the 9th, 10th, and 11th insta. They are almost too horrible to read. The writer, who has hitherto proved most accurate, affirms that the atrocities continue, that the Turks do nothing to repress the Bashi-Bazouks, that the Pasha is disobeyed, and that violations of Christian women occur every day. "Three thousand people were killed at Otlukkui with fearful atrocities and violations. Children of both sexes were carried about the streets on bayonets. People were burnt alive. The Mudir who outraged the schoolmistress is a drunken brute. At Bazardjik one thousand people were killed, offering no resistance, with the same atrocities as at Batok. A bagful of human heads from Bazardjik was emptied in the street at Jambuli before the house of the Italian Consul, and eaten by the dogs. Every Bulgarian house at Jambuli was pillaged by the regular troops and Turkish neighbours. Women are outraged every day." That is the status quo upon the basis of which the British Government proposes that peace should be made.
