The Greek Invaders Moving Further

Athens, April 11. Contradictory reports
continue to be leceived here regarding the
movements of the Greeks, who have
crowded into Macedonia -Jind come into
conflict with the Turkish forces. One re
port stales that the fighting close to the
frontier has entirely ceased, but the in
surgent Greeks aie now battling in the
Interior or Macedonia.
It is claimed they achieved material suc
cess in their engagements with the Turks

to have been several killed and wounded,
while the loss they inflicted upon the
Turks was far more serious.
The Italian Volunteers, under the com
mand or Amilcar Cipriani, the well-known
Socialist agitator, arc on the frontier,
where they have adopted energetic action
against the Turks. They have blown up
with dynamite several Turkish outposts,

A QUESTION FOIt STATESMFN.
"What "Will the Powers. Do in Case
of Open War.
London, April 11. "What will the powers
do in tiie event of open war between
Greece and Turkey? That is the ques
tion that is now agitating the public mind
Those within the diplomatic circle seem
to be as unable to answer a's the veriest
tyro, for tlie concert of Europe has no ex
istence, and every member of it appears
to be seeking to advance its own political
interests It will require statesmen and
not politicians to satisfactorily arrange
the many conflicting interests so that tlie
influence of the six great powers may be
exerted to prevent the outbreak of actual
hostilities. The events of the next few
days will be watched with the most ab
sorbing interest, for upon them depend
the peace of Europe.
From the reports of the situation re
ceived here, the chances or war result
ing from the Greek invasion of Macedonia,
though still highly probable, are becoming
less. Turkey, it appears, does not intend
to make the violation of her territory a
casus belli, though she apparently hnE a
right to do so. She maintains that the
Greek body that crossed the frontier was
made up of regular troops. In a circular
to her ambassadors and ministers she lajs
stress upon the regular military organiza
tion of the invaders. There is a stiong
suspicion that some of the Greek troops
on the frontier were influenced by the
and Joined in a movement in the hope
that it would precipitate actual war.
It is believed the present temper of
King George and his government is not so
warlike as it was very recently. The
announcement of the powers that they
would not permit cither side in a war, to
reap any territorial advantage, has been
a damper to the warlike aspirations of
Greece, and, has no doubt, acted as a check
to the Turks. It is therefore likely that
Greece will inform the porte that she is in
nowise responsible for the action of the
insurgents, that she regrets the invasion of
Turkish territory, etc, with the result of
establishing the shaky status quo.
Thereis scarcely any doubt that if Turkey
could exercise her own free will in the
matter no diplomatic representations
would quell her anger; but she is held back
by some of the great powers. "Were it
otherwise a holy war would be proclaimed,
and the green banner of the caliph would,
by force of overwhelming numbers, be
carried to the Greek capital, and the
long-standing score between the Turks
and Greeks would have some of the items
Wiped off it.
MOVING FAST TOWARD WAR.
DTenry N'ormnn Thinks Nothing Can
Prevent Active Hostilities.
London, April 11. Mr. Henry Norman,
the special commissioner of the Chronicle,
who is about to return to England, tele
graphs that he hab had farewell inter
views with King George, Prime Minister
Delyannis, and Mr. Skouzcs, minister of
foreign affairs. From their conversations
Mr. Norman regretlully draws the deduc
tion that the situation could not be much
woise than it is now, short of actual war.
The frontier incident, he say, will prob
ably be closed, but if it does not set the
frontier on fire it will only bo due to the
discipline of the regular troops and the
seventy of the orders that they remain
Mr. Xorman declares that Greece loyally
restrained the irregulars to the utmost or
her power. She repeatedly warned Europe
that she could uot check them indefinitely.
If the present affair does not precipitate
matters the next will.
Despite the fact that Turkey is defying
the treaty of Berlin and 18 to fortify
Preveza at the entrance of the Gulf of
Arta, Greece has refrained fro.m exer
cising her undoubted right to forcibly pre
vent the constructions of these fortifica
tions. Mr. Norman further says that a fiiendly
power a few days ago again pressed King
George to make a proposal respecting
Crete. The king replied: "Gieece has
already made three proposals annexation,
a Bosnian regime, and a plebescite. She
has no others to mako. If-the powers
really want peace, they need only btop
trying to thrust upon the Cretansa regime
that they would die rather than accept,
and allow them to decide their own fate.''
The writer continues: 'Trime Minister
Delyannis' last words to me were: 'I have
but little hope.' Even M. Skou7es, al
ways an optimist, was a pessimist for the
first time. The king and the government
were absolutely united, and opposition to
them has ceased for the moment.
Itappearst'liatthe diplomats at Constanti
nople have gone no further than agreeing
upon the principle of a Cretan assembly,
and that the Cretans shall elect their own
prince. My conclusion is that unless
there is some light below the horizon
that Is yet undicernable the situation is
moving straight and fast to war. The
fault Is not Greece's, who only will fight
be-ause it will be better to imperil her ex
istence with couraagethanwltlicowardice."

THE Tit LTD AIJOUT THE CAUCUS.
The De Armund Resolution Repudi
ates tlie Uniley-Heed Policy.
The Democratic caucus of Saturday did
uot Indorse Mr. Bailey and his policy of
non-action in the House. In the last hours
of the prolonged session of the caucus Mr.
Do Armond, of Missouri, offered a resolu
tion which seems to practically vitiate
the previously adopted proposition which
was proposed by Mr. Bailey. In brief, the
policy of the Texas leader was not to at
tempt to force tlie Republicans to legisla
tion, on the theory that action of any sort
by Republicans was bad. Many members
of the caucus believed that approval of
the policy of non-action amounted to a
practical indorsement of legislative nega
tion. So at tlie last moment of the caucus an
other rofcolutiou was passed which practi
cally destroyed the entire effect of the
indorsement of Bailey's policy. Mr. J)e
Armond's resolution, which was adopted,
was in effect that the preceding resolution
was not to be construed as being, in uuy
sense, an indorsement of Mr. Reed's pol
icies or methods; nud that individual
Democratic members were not to be bound
to silence, or to refrain from protesting
against the Reed policy of Do-nothlngness
aud the adjourning of the House for three
days at a time.
It was regarded by the members present
as amounting to a practical repudiation
of the negntive policy proposed by Bailey.
Tne indirect indorsement of the afore
said policy, first passed, was desired by
those present at the caucus to save that
gentleman from repudiation at the first
caucus of his party, in "which ho ap
peared as leader.
That the first resolutions governs the
action of individual Democratic members
will be demonstrated in the House on
