NiSah Despairs as Aid Fails; Britain Declares War on Bulgaria; Greece Stay s Out SERBS REJECT AUSTRIAN PEACE TERMS; GREEK MUNITIONS SENT TO TURKEY ! Ry Cable to The Tribune.1. Paris, Oct. 15.?The ?nfor:ra?ion reached here to day that Austria a month ago offered tempting terms of peace to Serbia and only the inter? vention of Prince Alexa:ider, who said that Serbia wi., ready to die by the sword rather than be a traitor, prevented an acceptance of the offer. Austria's peace terms were thit Serbia should retain all territory held before the war with the exception of Bulgarian Macedonia, which was to be handed back to Bulgaria. Serbia, of course, was to allow Austria and Germany to send troops and munitions to Constantinople through Serbia and Bulgaria, via Belgrade. For this purpose the Belgrade sector of the country was to be ceded to Austria for the period of the war, Austria guaranteeing its return at the end of hostilities. The Serbian council was seriously considering the offer which, in their view, required no greater sacrifices 0:1 the part of Serbia than the Allies' proposals to pacify Bulgaria and would let Serbia out of more fighting, when Prince Alexander dramatically ended the dis? cussion. It ?ilso became known here to-day in connection with the refusal of Greece to support Serbia that Greece has for some time been actively supplying Turkey with munitions of war. Greek vessels have been obtaining permission from the Allies to enter the port of Smyrna for cargoes of figs contracted for before Turkey entered the war. Ostensibly the Greek vessels entered Smyrna light of cargo, but in reality they were in every case loaded with munitions for the Turkish army. Only recently have the Allies learned what has been going on and Greek vessels going to Smyrna are now stopped.

Another flotilla was sent out this moil? ing, it consisted of a German eruiaer and three destroyers. Cruising through the Baltic, and past the place where re torpedo boats had l.een lost, it penetrated into The Sound Ther a lingis British submarine engaged the squadron. The German all moved in circles in an BaToti to avoid the attack of the enemy, but the British craft followed closely. The' Germans, equipped with heavy guns directed a continuous fire at the raider but did not succeed in hittmp; her.

N.s.i, Oct. 1...?-Th. military situ? ation created by tho offen, ive of the Austro-Gorman armie. is of th? gr?'at?-st seriousness, and at any moment may turn to catastrophe. This would be as great a disaster for th. Allies as for Serbia, as once Germany joined hand., with Bul f-tril she could reprovision Turkey with munitions, thus completely jeopardizing the ruiece... of the (ial lipoli expedition. The courage an?i tenacity of the Serbian army has excited the admiration of th? world for fourteen months past, hut every? thing has its limits, and an army of 300,000 men, with between BM to TOO miles of frontier to guard against three nations in arms, with forcea doubly? perhans triply, su? perior, cannot hold out forever. This is _n clear that the news of the landing Of an Allied army at Sal?nica was received in Serbia with enthucin.m. Xi-h was decorated with flaps to welcome the troops, but the day- pass and there is no sign of the Frar.co-Hritish forces, while, on the other hand, come reports of fierce fighting on the Danuhian front, where the (?ermans are mak? ing deeparate ?"ff? .rts to crush Serb? ian resistance before the arrival of the Allies. If the Serbs should sriv? way and Germany make a sivrni.l Belgium of their kingdom, th?' Allies would be face to face with the ? graveet problem since the begin - ninff of th?- war, sp^ng that free eonununJentioU from Berlin to Cou stantinople would be established, and Germany would be mast?-r of the Balka It would then re.juire not an ex? peditionary force of ,.(Ml,000 but 2.000,000 to reconquer the lost ter? ritory. In view of the seriousnese 0? the situation, military and politi? cal circles in Seri.ia are quite at a l.-Fs to understand the Inexplicable nelay in tho arrival of the troops disembarked at Sal?nica. When every single moment is precious, cays and weeks are being lost. At any moment Serbia may be called upon to face attack by the Bulgarian army. People here fear that the vacillation and Indociaiou which have characterized the diplomacy of th? last three months, and which have culminated in the present Balkan situation, now characterize the mili? tary operations also, and that daya are being wasted in nterile dis? cussion when instant and vigorous action is re?iuired.
