Are Finally Agreed.
LONDON, Kng. Jan. S. Whether
Adrianople will captttulate directly to
besieging forces or yield because ot
pressure brought to bear by the pow
ers Is the question that occupies alike
the peace delegates and the ambas
lialkan delegates are confident Ad
rianople will yield to one pressure or
another within a few days. The am
bassadorial conference is marking
time in hope the Adrianople difficul
ty will sohe Itself and piake Inter
ference by the powers unnecessary
The conference Is also hampered by
the agreement that any decision "or
Interference must be unanimous and
should Adrianople hold out and the
peace conference be suspended it may
become Imperative for Europe to in
tervene to preserve its prestige in en
abling her to dictate the creation of
autonomous Albania and partitioning
of the Aegean Islands.
It is suggested that Adrianople muu
le ceded to the powers who would
transfer It to tho allies after permit
ting the Turkish garrison to depart
with the honors of war and guaran
teeing and reservation of religious
and property rights to Jhe Turks.
Some of the more radical delegates
of the allies are holding tnat Europe
should -complete the work of expell
ing Turkey by making Constantinople
an autonomous cit under Europejia
control and outline a system to gite
