1oniion, Hoc 4. The news that
(Ireece alone of the nllles refused to
pIrh tho armistice with Turkey last
night Is the culls" of pnifound scn-m-tlon
In diplomatic circles here. .Somo
say that It Is the licKlnnlnK of the end
of tho H.ilknn confederacy.
Other reports lead one to believe thnt
the aimlMlcc Is more than a mere
truce and really embodies certain arti
cles of the actual treaty of peace.
Mumoni arc also current that KlnR
rcrdlnand of HulBarhi as well ns aim
Ins at peace with Turkey Is aiming at
an Hvenlual alliance with her, although
there h no definite confirmation of
this.
All along (Irerc has hindered the
armlrtlce proee cdim: .. hut it was
thought hardly prolmlile that she would !
tak the allies 1.1 their word and ko on I
, with th war alone.

th'i" three cltlen and their fate have
kept the Sr"k representatives from
Joining with the allies, nml their attiludo
was first foreshadowed when the Oneks
took Palonlra. There too inme n Hul
i gsrlan army, to lind the city already
.occupied by the troops of King Ucorgc.
(The cablfs told at the time of the oc
,' cupatton of that Kgcan seaport that
I Immediately there arose friction be
tween i he two armies of the allies, and
eventually the Unlearn left.
Vlenm "'nds a report In this eonnec
i tlon which is not confirmed from any
1 other quarter to the effect that 3.000
1 Greeks within the last few days at
twnpted to enter Serres, about fifty miles
i from aloiilo,i, which was already occu
1 pled by Hulc.irl.ins, and were repulsed
With a lo:'. of :r.n killed.
When the (ireeks began their siege
' f .Idnlna they were confident of ultl
' mate success. Hut wlien they sent their
' representatives down to the armistice
, conferences at ItaKhchctsh they were
'mazed and at the same time Indignant
! to discover that Servla, Montenegro and
Bylgarl.i were considering very favor
ably that clause In the armistice which
provided that all the besieged cities were
to-bo revlctualled dally. The Greeks
' felt that this was altogether too lenient.
They told their representatives to
hold out for the surrender of Janlnn
it any rate. Otherwise tho Turks would
Import ammunition, arms, coul and
. food freely by sea when the blockade
. on the Adriatic was raised, as was
' proposed, anil In the event of the re
r newal of war all the work would have
v to be done over again and Jatiina might
' hold out Indefinitely. Janlna, which Is
the most Important town of the Eplrus,
' has nlways bee;; sorely desired by
Greece.
Greece also felt that If the Ilulg.-.rs
were content to let the Turks keep
.Adrlanoplc they would demand from
Greece land that they had captured
from the Turk as compensation.
On the islands of Chios and Mttylcne
too. where there was righting on Sun
day and Monday, tho Greeks felt that
they would lose all they had gained
if the armies remalnes In their posi
tions for the fourteen days of the truce,
and they demanded the surrender of tho
Turkish armies on those two islands.

i Spettat Cable UttpatcK to Th Sc.v.
London, Dec. 3. A despatch from
Vienna to the Daily Telegraph says:
"The little kingdom of Scrvla be
comes dally more ond more the de
ciding point on which the peace of
Europe depends. This Is because she
and others believe that Russia will sup
port her through thick and thin. Vet
Russia has made every effort to per
suado Servla to adopt a reasonable at
titude. These efforts have been made
by secret diplomacy, and something
rnore overt Is necessary to bring about
the deMred results.
"The Servians to-day are too excited
and too overwrought by their success
to recognize the danger with which
Uielr attitude threatens Europe. The
European Powers unanimously and at-
multaneously should therefore tnke Sc. - -
avdcuallon of the Albanian coast, fall
ing whV.h Italy nnd Austria should be
empowered to turn her troops out of
Durazzo, Alcsslo nnd elsewhere.
"It can he said from nn authoritative
(wtili ce that Servla Is not necessarily
determined to remain nt Durazzo. Sho
might be willing to exchange It for San
Giovanni di Mctlua, for she merely
. wants her tlag to fly on the Adriatic,
.but Italy will not have the Servian flag
;on tho Adriatic at all.
"The speech of Dr. von Bethmann
Hollweg. the German Chancellor, has
deeply affected all Rurope. and for good
trtth the exception of Servla, who seems
to believe that she has everything to
win and nothing to lose out of a Euro
pean war. It Is said that she proba
bly will climb down at the last moment,
but Austria's patience Is not Inex
haustible, and It will be well for Sen-la
If she does not delay too lonir.
"There Is good ground for the belief
that the Balkan Confederation will soon
be dissolved into Us component parts."

Belokade, Dec. 3. The Tribuna, which
is closely connected with the Servian
'Foreign Office, says no member of the
Servian Government haa declared that
'Servla will waive the right to Albanian
territory. Servla, the Tribuna says,
respects the Powers and Is ready to
meet their wishes and' accept their
decision.
Generally speaklnr, the attitude of
Belgrade circles Is calm and correct
to-day, the paper says, but according
to Information from various sources,
v"ithe war preparations of Austria and the
Jatter's concentration of forces on the
frontier are being carried out with such
baste and to Kuch an extent that Scr
vla will find It necessary In order to
safeguard her Interests to make simi

Any unforeseen provocation from
Irresponsible factors on cither side at
any moment may render the situation
far more serious.

"" Dr. Th. 1 op. o da sane
Honed a decree of the Conslstorlal ton-
gregatlon temporarily suppressing the
pontifical functions of all the churches
In the nrchdlorese of Genoa.
The decree Is considered on act of re
taliation for the delay of the Govern
ment In recognizing the appointment of
the new Archbishop of Genoa, which
delay Is alleged to be due to the In
trigues of the modernist!-.
The trouble In Genoa started last
September, when Mgr. Caron. an Inti
mate of the Pope, was appointed to tiie
Archbishopric. no of his first acts re
sulted In the summary banishment from
Italy of I'adre Giovanni Semerla. a noted
pulpit orator and a great favorite at
court and In society generally. The
charge ngalnst Semerla was that ho had
been guilty of modernism, hut the real
reason was said to be because he had
criticised the appointment of Mgr. Caron.
The Dowager Queen and others trlrd
to Induce the Tope to relent, but Plus X.
refused, nnd In retaliation the Govern
ment delayed the Issue of nn exequatur
to Mgr. Caron. t'ntll this document Is
Issued ho will not be able to retain the
tee nnd It was thought at the time that1
the Pope would have to recall him. In
stead of doing that he has evidently de
termined to fight the matter out.
The former good relation" of the
Vatican and Qulrlnnl hao been seri
ously compromised by this case. The
nwulorntsiH. It Is uttered, are behind the

Politicians have bien casting tir

whom William Sulzer would appoint

Tammany men and others who lui

politician who would milk it for all it h

And if a word to a contractor was enough
to put a man to work plenty of voter
could be kept going until the neit elec
tion. Tho real troublo that was remarked
upon yesterd iy was the question as to
what would happen to the subway system
if Gov. Sulzer appointed a man who
didn't follow the Wlllcox policies. As
the commission stands Mr. WiUcot,
John K. Kustis, Republicans, and Goorg
V. 8. Williams, a Dlx appointee, all favor
corporate operation, J. Bergoant Cram
and Milo K. Maltbie, Democrats, favor
municipal one ration.
If Mr. Willcox's successor should fa' or
municipal operation the majority of thp
commission would be against the plan
ns at present outlined, of allowing th.
H. H. 1 . and the Interborough to operat
the new subways under close contracts
with tho city.
The hoje of tho city authorities is thai
tho contracts for operating the new
subways will lie Hlgned beforo sir. Vi!ico
goes out of office, and that enough con.
htruction contracts will be let to hind
the city conclusively to thn plan as alread
tentatively agreed to. If operating eon
tracts are not out of the way by Kehruar"
t and if Gov. Sulzer puts in an unfrieiiill
man, then New York will have a chanc
to do its subway thinking all over again
Tho operating contract with the Inter
borough Rapid Transit Company is almn
out of the way. The commission and th
company are almost in complete agreo
nient. and a majority of the Board of
Kstimate. who have to approve the form
of contract before it can be signed, are
understood to favor the contract as it
stands.
Tho B. R. T. contract is in a different
condition. Mr. Willcox said yesterdav
that he had no doubt that the two or thru
disputed points that remained could I re
settled amicably. The main point upon
which the B. it. T. and tho conunsiMion
has split has to do with interest on the
1J. R. T.'s subway loans.
While there is every hope at the Pub'j
Service Commission office that this dis
pute will lie settled the delay is tnakini
oliservers nervous for fear the whota
subway system will be thrown into dang-::
