London, Sept 1. Tho pro-Ally
faction In Greece hns revolted ngalnst
the neutrality of King Constantlne,
and tho Kins la reported to have ab
dicated the throno In favor of the
Crown Prince. Part of Greek Mace
donia Is controlled by the revolution
ary commltteo and there has been
fighting between revolutionists an J
Greek troops In Salonlca.
Tlio abovo reports came after two
days of sllenco In telegraphic com
munication with Athens and were fol
lowed to-night by the news of the ar
rival of nn Entente Allied Meet with
transports nt the PJkiui. the rort of
Athens, and that the general Greek
elections likely will be postponed for
a fortnight. The brevity of the des
patches seems to indicate that sonic
thlng unusual is happening in the
Hellenic capital. Some London kb
scrvera believe that tho Greek de facto
Government hag decided to throw the
nation's lot with the Entente Allies.
From two sources come almost
Identical despatches reporting the ab
dication of Kins Constnntinc. Ward
Price, tho Hrltlsh official press rep
resentative at Salonlca, and lteuter's
correspondent there agree that the
King haa resigned the throne in favor
of tho Crown Prince and that
Premier ZalmU Is to remain in con
trol. Venteclo. however, is to be the
power behind the throne.
The new Government, it Is said,
will have pro-Ally inclinitlons and
probably will soon declaro war upon
the Central Empires. The Hrltlsh
Foreign office officially confirms the
report of n revolution and fighting,
but says It has heard nothing of
the reported abdication of the King.
The Greek Minister hero has not re
ceived any information on tho sub
ject. Allied Fleet Near Alliens.
A fleet of twenty-seven allied war
ships convoying seven transports laden
nlth troops has arrived from Salonlca
off th Plrwus. Evidently trouble Is ex
pected at Athens and, allied troops v 111
be landed, fierhaps ta 'ensure Uw la
bility of the new government.
Despatches from Palonlca uia report
lliat the remoblllzatlon of the whole
Hreek army has been ordered, follow
ing orders recalling all Greek staff nffl
rcrs on leave. The revolutionary rom
inltteo In charge in northeastern Mace
donia Is expected also to pro-Ialm it
spfclal mobilization of all patriotic
fireeks to repel the Hulgar Invasion and
light on the side of the Allies.
Oen. Sarrall, the allied e.muiimdfr

after tho first fighting between (evolu

The Greek troops had half ununited
to participate yesterday In a big dem
onstration for Intervention In the war
on the side of tho Allies, which had been
arranged by a pro-ally committee. Dur
ing the night the pro-Ally volunteers,
raised by the Venlzellsts to defend Greek
towns In Macedonia from the Hulg.T-s.
attempted to seize tho IiitucLs. They
wire aided by Cretan gendarmes, but
were, repulsed, It Is said th.it one gfti
danne was killed and two wounded.
The volunteers cut the electric wires
and shut oft food, and tho sixty loyal
soldiers who tried to make a sally were
attacked. Two more were killed nnd
three wounded. Then three battalions of

VILLA RUSHING TO BORDER
TO FORCE WILSON TO FIGHT
With 200 Followers, Bandit Chief Is Riding North to

where he was defeated on Wednesday by

United states troops will block his way
within a hundred miles If ho does not
change his course, nnd advices received
by Carranzlsta authorities are that he
has no intention of changing his course,
but on tho contrary he Intends to at
tack the southernmost outposts of tho
United States soldiers.
Americans here hardly believe Villa
would be so foolish us to give battle to
the American army, and some believe
he may be Intending to dodge the Amer
ican column If he can and strike nt
some border point as he did at Colum

Gen. Kllsondo, however, claims to
have Information from some of the pris
oners tnken by his men when Villa and
his band were defentcd at Satevo which
Is to tho effect that Villa Is bent upon
attacking the American Infantry now
camped at Kl Valle and forcing a battle
on Mexican soil.
Villa Is said to have argued that such
an attack will either make tho Amer
icans fight and follow him when he re
treats into the mountains and thus pos
sibly drag the Americans Into a battle
with the Carranzltas, who have for
bidden the Pershing army to move In
any direction except north, or that tho
attack will cause the United States to
make further demands upon Carranza
and eventually force a break.
Villa Is said to realize that It, would
not take very much friction to bring
the relations of Mexico and the United
States to tho breaking point again, and
