Ordera have been given to the army of the Serbs, Croats and Slovenes to offer re alstance to D'Annunzlo'a troops, while warning has been sent at tho same time to Rome that D'Annunzlo'a threat If persisted In would have Incalculable con sequences, because of the spirit reigning among the Serbian people. Tho Belgrade Government expressly decllnos responsibility for what may fol low, Intimating that If war actually occurs, It will hold Itself absolutely blameless. Belgrade has also decided to appeal Immediately to the Supremo Council and the Conference of Ambas sadors, wh!ch, If D'AnnunzIo continues his advance, must face the question whether It should demand that Italy proceed militarily against the poet. Details are still lackmg hero as to how far D'AnnunzIo has gone, but ac cording "tcTadvlces from Belgrade re ceived bythe Jugo-Slav peace delega tion this afternoon, which Mr. Vesnltch, president of the delegation, confirmed at nn excited session. D'AnnunzIo was about to occupy Sussak. The Jugo-Slav delegation takes a gTave view of the matter but the Council of 'Ambassa dors has not been informed officially and took no action to-day. Italy Is still under very tight censorship, which probably accounts for the absence of all news from Rome. Rome, May 3D. D'AnnunzIo hns no Intention of occupying Sussak, accord ing to a Flume despatch tp the Jei-taggcro., Belgrade, May 29. Premier Ves nltch In the Assembly explained that the reason nothing had been said re garding the Adriatic question was that the Government wanted to avoid a dis cussion which might render Its posi tion difficult. He said there was great difficulty In the questions to solve with Italy, and added: "A state of friendly, normal and neighborly relations between iia and Italy is only possible ' If there la less cause tor friction. The best so lution would be for the Adriatic Sea to become the frontier of our young State and Italy." Follsh-Amerlcitn Troopa to netnrn, Berlin, May 30.
