For years Bulgaria has looked upon
Kavalla with a covetous eye. Al
though defeated and subdued, she
looked hopefully to the peace con
gress at Paris to give her Kavalla as
a port. Yet Kavalla is not a harbor.
It is merely a roadstead affording good
anchorage for conastwise steamers.

velopient would be required to con
vert the city into a first-class port. But

During the war the Rulifarians
