But Premier, Ready to Make Decision for Nation,

Whole Country Stands Behind Him.
By GORDON GORDON-SMITH.
?Special Correspondent of The New York Trlbune.I
Athens, Sept. 24.?In a privat?
interview to-day, M. Venizelos, the
Greek Premier, explained the posi?
tion of his country toward the new
situation developing in the Balkans.
The talk was of such a confidential
nature that I cannot make it public
at this time, hut without betraying
the Premier's confidence, I can state
that the impression I carried away
is that he is a strong partisan of the
The Premier is convinced of the
justice of the cause for which the
Allies are fighting and has every
confidence in the ultimate triumph
of their arms. But, at the same
time, he has Greece's interests in i
hi-- eharcre. and thoueh resolved on a I
vigorous, clearly defined line of ac?
tion in certain contingencies, which
he explained to me, ho is completely
opposed to any policy or adventure
tor which the country might not
bo adequately prepared or on which
it could not embark with well
grounded hopes of success.
When M. Venizelos received me
this morning, I found a man who,
without the slightest ?l'osions as to
the difficulty of his task, faces it
with the quiet courage born of the
statesman. On his shoulders rests
the entire responsibility for his
country's course. He has, however,
the flattering certainty that what?
ever he decides on his countrymen
