a falnt hope now that the representa*

Montenegro's move ls consldered In
Paris to be all a part of a prearrangci
pian. It is assertcd that Greece was
first selected by the Balkan eonfedera
t i..n to force the Issue and inaugurate
the war. This could easily have been
done by Greece seating in her parlla
ment the Deputles from Crete, whlch
was certaln to prove a casus belli to
Turkey. Greece, however, decllned to
accept responsibllity for startlng the ?
/lame of battle.
Montenegro wae then picked for the
tnsk. She had a long standing quarrel
with Turkey ov.r the boundary ques- ?
tion. and Turkey_ refusal to grant
satipfactlon wa> selzed upon as Justl
flcation for Montenegro's resort to
nrms. A prominent dlplomat said to
"It looks ns if our flne European
('iplomacy had been beaten by th*
cleverness of the. Balkan States. These
states have grown weary of ottoman
pro-nlaaa, Tnrhav*a recent deci.-ion to
inang irate reforms. which were con*
tldarad unsatisfactory. and the slow
MBB and hesitancy of certaln powers
to Join in urgent interventlon have led
the Balkan peoples to feel that tho
battlefleld was the only sure means of
exactlng what they felt to be Justice."

It'ts not doubted here that eooler
heads ln Bulgaria heve been against
the war from the' start, but popular
excUement is at such a high pitch that
that country -frm practira'.iy bo drlven
to war to satisfy public opinlon.

Offlcial circles in Franee grcatly re
gret the critlcism of certaln Freneh
newspapers that Oreat Brltaln's slow
ness in agieeing to the phrasoology of
the note has emburrassed and retarded
the representatlons of the powers.
This critlcism. lt ls averred, does not
represent the offielal Freneh view. It

that the representatlons of the powers
came too late, a rupture of dJplomatlc
telatlons havlng ulready oecUrred. The
note was aa followa:

In decllning to concur In the vlews of
