nn has Murked the administration of
Rumania's demand for territorial
"rompensaikiii" is not unexpected, and
is no ni'irt? Illogical than many othen
which have porn granted on previous
OOSaakna. Of course, she Is really not
coeiccrnctl in this war. She has not
been n party to It and her Int-COStS
have nor been affected. But the same
may lie ?aid of Austi ia-Huagarj -,
which is the other power bounding th??
Bslkar ?states at the north. Yet that
nwwei' prefaced and largely provoked
the war by _:''"at!y aggrandising her?
self st the expense of Bertia, and she
imw purposes further to serve hor own
fo|fJi>h interests at Servia s COS?. Why,
then, should not Rumania gala SO-DB*
thlnp at the expense ?'f Bulgaria; es
nedatly Since she has ? traditional and
invetera to haired of that country?
The fact is that Rumania has felt
partictilariy ?ore for the la?t thirty-five
years, or ever since tho Rnaso-Turklsh
war. Although ?lie saved RuBSla from
disastrous defeat in that war. she was
not only ungratefully nnd shabbily
treated nt its end. hut was aotualh
sp? ?listed, lor Russia. Intent upon st?
mrinjt h frontage on the Danube, took
from h'^r i ho exceedingly valuable
pruTinoe of BesearaWs and cave her
in return the almost worthless swamps
Of the Dobrudaha, and in.l ?ven sil "f
thst region. Now Rumania se?'s g
??hance to get a little compensation fur
that wronff. not from Russia, hut from
Riilfraiia. So she demands the re?
mainder of the Dohrudshn. to wit. a
wed_c shaped hit of BOttheaatorn Bul?
garia, g hundred Billes Ing and twenty
mile? wide, si the broad end on the
Black Sen. This would ?ive ln?r Sills
tris. prolanhly Dobrtcfa and ?falBIBB
which must not he confounded with
the much mor" important Varna, which
will he loft to Bulgaria, it would also
make a much more natural boundary
lietweeu Rumania ami Bulgaria than
the present arbitrary Hpe.
Bulgarie eanaot be expected to wei
eoag*h such i demand or to accede to
it without demur. It would not ho
plcawiut for her to gire up even ao
small a jiiece ?af land, which f??r more
thsn a third of n century has been In
disputably hers. Yet it mif*ht be
profitable for her to do so, In view of
