Ahe local po8tofflce has received a

Containing mailable matter weighing
less fchan 11 pounds. The rate has

<io to Allies Blocks Conclusion of
Peace on Balkans Terms,
London. Dec. 27.?Turkey's reply
to the demands made several days
ago by the Balkan allies as a basis
for peace in southeastern Europe will
bo delivered tomorrow to the peace
t onference in St. James' palace. In?
terest, however, again has shifted
from this phase of the stiuation and is
centered tonight in the question of
what are the intentions of Austris
with respect to the Balkan states.
The peace delegates are prepr ^
to confirm the fact that sever

startling though the latter ina. . as
simply points for future negotiations
It is well known that Turkey has not
the least hope of obta'ning what she
will demand and also that she has no
intention of resuming a war whic".
may result in further disaster to her.
This aspect of the situation seems
to conform the fact that several ef?
forts have been made unofficially by
Turkish delegates to get the Montene?
grin, Servian and Greek delegates to
secede from the demand that Adri
anople be surrendered, promising in
return that Turkey will not object to
their respective enlargement ? territo?
rially. These advices and reports
emanating from Constantinople that
Bulgaria is negotiating with Turkey
independently are considered as an at?
tempt to divide the allies.
Representatives of the Balkan
States, however, heve resisted all
temptations placed 1?"? thelf way aii?
today presented as unded a front as
they did the first day of the negotia?
tions and are just as determined as
ever to have their own way .In con
