Outlook for Peace Is Dark and
Four Days' Notice Must Be
, Given. by Nations. -
LONDON, Jan. 15. If the "war map"
es It Is seen in London does not shift,
Turkey and the Balkan allies will be
fighting again on the Chatalja lines
about Sunday. The protocol signed at
Baghtche provided that four days no
tice must be given by either side desir
ing to terminate the armistice. Should
the allies decide formally to declare the
Balkan war renewed, the time limit
would not expire until Saturday night.
v Peace Outlook Dark.
From all that was known here to
day the outlook for peace was dark.
The peace envoys of the Balkan states
had not receded from their declaration,
made yesterday, that they would advise
their government formally to declare
the war against Turkey resumed simul
taneously with the presentation by the
embassadors at Constantinople of the
great powers note to the porte.
Turks and Balkan plenipotentiaries
had not quit London, but it was known
that they had their luggage iri readi
ness to catch the first transcontinental
train and boats on expected telegraphic
advices from their ministries.
Ambassadors In Session.
The ambassadors met with Secretary
Edward Grey, of foreign office, but
they were without Instructions to take
The ambassadors at Constantinople
were holding up their note to make cer
tain changes, and the Turkish grand
council called by Klamil Pasha, grand
ilzler. was in a beyance until the pow
ers' note was dellxered to the porte.
It was learned from a bemi-offlclal
rource close to the foreign office that
the Balkan plenipotentiaries had agreed
to the proposal of the great powers that
the fortified city of Scutari be included
in autonomous Albania.
Bulgarians To Confer.
Official dlspaches confirmed tne report
that Crar Ferdinand of Bulgaria, with
his entire cabinet, is on the wav from
Sofia to Mustapha Pasha, n here he uiil
consult with General Savoft. common-der-ln-ch'ef
of the Bulgarian army.
The Czar and his ministers will Inspect
the trcops along the Chatalja lines.
This was taken by the pessimists to
mean that th- allies were In earnest !n
their declarations that war would oe

Perhaps amusement would better de
scribe the view that is taken of their
unconcealed friendship. To describe 't
as a childish romance would hardly be
fair, for. has. not the gallant Master
Fowler attained the mature wisdom of
sixteen yeare? And mam'sclle of the
twinkling toes does she not boast
openly in softest Italian that she is
much older than that, every bit of two
years? So Madame Grundy must hie
her to the wood and forego the enjo

records show otherwise than that lt la
Just a case of 'ery frank admiration, at
least on Master Fowler's, part. If all
the Jealousv that Fowler caused at the
Arabalan Nights ball could have been
