ty that no date was fixed for the recall,
the instructions of the representatives
of the powers on this point being at va
riance. A collective note will be pre
sented tomorrow. The Athens corre
spondent of The Chronicle declares that
no communication has been received
from Russia. It is quite certain that
the Greek army will not be withdrawn.
Macedonian forces will be raised within
a few weeks with a view to possible
contingencies, and If the Turks attempt
to invade Thessaly the Bulgarian gov
ernment is determined to advance its
troops instantly to the Agean sea. The

Nothing Can Prevent European War.
The Times advices from Canea report
serious news from Candia. Colonel Cor
acas with 15,000 insurgents and three
guns threatens to attack Hierapetra,
where the garrison is ill-supplied .with
arms and ammunition and the forts are
weak. It is feared that this mnv seri
ously complicate the situation. The pub-
uc ieenng at Atnens is that nothing can
prevent the powers from coming to
blows over Crete. The nimnr n-n Mr.

teen hoisted over the fortress of Izzed
Ing. Bverybody imediately leaped to
the conclusion that England was trying
to steal a march on the other powers
by seizing Suda harbor. It seems cer
tain to The Times correspondent that one
of the great powers Is now urging the
sultan to take the offensive immediate
ly, possibly with the intention of step
ping in to protect Greece In case the
Turks should overrun Thessaly, but
more probably with the ulterior design
of seizing Constantinople.
WHAT IS STATED AT LOXDOX
Greece To Be Allowed Four Days How to
Get Out of Crete.
London, March 1. It is stated here
that there Is good authority for believ
ing that the result of the conferences
between the representatives of the great
powers at Constantinople and Athens
will be the presentation of collective
notes to Turkey and Greece today.
Greece will be allowed four days to re
call her land and sea forces from Crete.
It is reported from Canea that sev
eral Insurgent leaders have sent to Vice
Admiral Canevaro, of the Italian fleet,
a signed declaration that the Cretans
will accept no solution of the pending
question but political union with Greece,
Fighting continues between the insur
gents and Mussulmans near Ret! mo and
elsewhere. At Malata the Turkish

Insurgents with shells, and continued
the firing until stopped by order of the
A famine is imminent In Candia and
it is apprehended that the troops there
may pillage the district. Fighting was
In progress at Malata yesterday. The
bashi bazouks lost three killed and five
wounded. The regulars lost eight killed
and five wounded. The Times corre
spondent at Canea reports that the In
surgents uitterly denounce British Con

embarrassing for many years the at
tempt to liberate Crete. The- Moham
medans looted the British vice consul's
house at Halepa Friday night; yet only
on the previous day he had vehemently
denied any act of incendiarism or loot
ing on the part of the Moslems.
The Times Constantinople correspon
dent reports that 15,000 troops have al
ready been removed from Asia Into
Europe. The railway officials cannot
provide for forwarding these soldiers to
wards Salonlca at the rate of more than
9,000 daily. The Constantinople corre
spondent of The Standard says the sul
