Constantinople, Dec. 4?An off1eia4 note Issued this evening says: "An ar mistice has been concluded with Bttl garla, Servla and Montenegro. The state of war with Greece continues." Altho-gh the complete terms Of the protocol have not been made public, It is learned that the qtieatlon of re victi alling the beleaguered towns was abandoned, the government being sat lsfled that the towns were sufllciently supplle'' with foodstuffs to last untll the ncluston of peace. The only condUion mentioned in the oflicial 'ommunfratlon to the press is that the troops wlll remain in the posi tions now occupied. It is understood that no limit has been placed on the armisthv, which may be terminatcd by forty-eig: hours' notice by either side. It is reported that the Turklsh and Bulgarlan delegates will meet agaln to niorrow at Baghtche for the purpose of arranging the prellminaries for the peace <onferenee. Speculation \s rife as to the real rca son for the failure of Greece to be :i signatory to the arniistlce. It |g gen erally foH that the niere rtjtctton of the special Oreek demands did not eon stltute a sufflcient reason for QiaaCajfl lndependent attitude. These demands were the capitulation of Janina and the surrender of the Turkish troops in the islands of Chlos anrl .Mytilene. It is hoped that the peace negotia lions will be eonctoded in London In about eight daya. Thus, with the <?.i - (Insioii of peace, Turkey will be frca bl devote all her enercie* ggatnat <;i [By CbMa to Tli* Trihun?\l Londoii, Dec. 3.?SimultancousU aitb the news of t>le armistice comea th? repwrt frpir,- xj^ejaltantinople that the (}ree|<s hnvr hmded troops in Thraco and that an atta<-k has been made ?? tho rfaiiipoii forts. The report may li" inereh based on what for some tin ?? has been inticipation. but if the repoil is true the event i.l curiously wei! timed. since the terms agreed to, as they are now stated from Sofla. art very different from those reported froiii Constantlnople, to which Oreece took exception. It seemB probable now, however. that the whole of the five nations will sign the armistice after all, especlally as, according to one aouree, the Greek slg nature has not actually been refused. but only withheld for twenty-four hours. The Athens papera, however, are bellicose in tone and talk of Greeca carrying on the war singlehanded. At first sight it would appear that the armistice condltlona are vary mu. h to Turkey'a detriment. Bulgarla ob talns facilltles to feed her troopa. but no opportunitles are afforded for re victualling the baaieged fortreaeea. H must be remembered, however, that (1) there are evtdently othar conditlona of wlilcb we have yet no lnformatton; that (8) ae it waa Turkey who auad fon arndatlce it waa only natural that tha other aide ahould tnstst on the pric? being paid, and that (8) Turkey alonej knowa how long her besieged garriaona can hold out. The last consideration ia lmportant. If the fall of the fortreaeea wtthln a brief perlod owing to lack of auppUea were certaln. Turkey might aa well have agreed to tbe demand for capttu. lation at once. Why London Waa Salacted. London 1b being decided upon aa the place where the actual peace negotla tiona are to begln. It ia difflcult to aee why the place and tbe time mentioned ahould be aelected, unleaa tha partles have aot-c reason for believing that aide by alde with the negotiationa there may also be going on a conference of the great powers. It wlll be notlced that Premier Aa quith in the Houee of Commona yeater day said he preferred not to make a statement in reference to the auggested ambassadors' conference in London, and the natural inference aeems to be that a formal propoaal for thla con? ference haa now been made and tha offlcial acceptancea not yet all receivad. It may be taken for granted that tha proposal would not have been made un less favorable replles were asaured, an I thus we arrlvc at the probability that by the end of next weck not only tlM flve nationa will be embarked on their epoch?maklng negotiationa in London, but that representativea of the great powers wlll bc engaged in the Bama work at the aame place. It ia reported that Auatrla now hai 300,000 troops wlthin atriking diatanc? of the Servian frontier. and many ves sels are aasembled in rcadineea to tranBport the troopa across the rhen Have and Danube. With respect to the dlspute between the alliea, it appeara that the Greek government addreased laat Saturday a dignlfled and touchlng appeal to the governments of the allies. beseechins them to take no action caleulated to weaken or cidanger tfce kague.
