"The four little States which' have .
taken ; it on themselves to defy" the
Ottoman 'empire are 'Greece in' the
south; Bulgaria, Servia and Montene
gro, extending along the Balkan Moun
tains In an almost unbroken line from
the Black Sea to "the Adriatic. That
these four States should have form
ed a coalition as they now have Is
one- of the surprising features of
the whole affair Only a few years
ago most of the world had begun to
believe' that racial and national pre
judices which the Turks In Abdul
Harold's day had played upon so ef
fectually wouW make any approach
to ah understanding Impossible. That
they have reached this understanding
is due to the fact that teachers of
state-craft have been abroad in the
Balkans spreading and Impressing on
the people the theories, long ago for
mulated, of some of the wisest of Ser
Once Part of Ottoman Empire.
Each of these four States was once
part of the great Ottoman Empire
that at one time reached almost to
the gates of Vienna. Through their
own insistent struggles and finally
through the intervention of the Pow
ers they obtained thoir independence,
but the boundary lines that were
drawn to form these States were made
by diplomacy and the expediency of
tate-craft and in no case did they in- j
elude all ot tne people tnat Deionseu
to the different nationalities. The
States have thrived even under great
disadvantages, and today they de-
mand of Turkey that the same bles-
sings of independence they are them
selves enjoying shall be extended to
those of their own race who yet re
main under Ottoman rule.
This desire to benefit, their own
people in the Ottoman Empire and to
collect them into one racial body
for back of the alleged altruistic mo
tive must be considered the question
of the territorial acquisition of the
lands which they at present occupy
Is one of the chief factors in the Bal
kan question. This question, which
has for so many years been of deep
concern to every European chancell
ery, involves besides these four States
and Turkey, Austria-Hungary, Russia
and Great Britain. It is almost wholly
a question of race and religion and
the aspirations of the different king
doms for possession of their ancient
domains. Its most perplexing features
