The German press, apparently on the orders of the government, is attempting to minimise the bad effect of the Bulgarian surrender, say offi cisl dispatches from France yester day. As late as September 30 the semi official Wolff Bureau maintained that the Sofia cabinet was unaware of the armistice clauses, whereas yes terday the Koelnlsche Zeitung dr clsred that "nothing Irreparable had yet happened." Other journals at tempt to say the Mallnoff cabine?; lacks the backing ot the Bulgarian people, and the Frankfurter Zeitung is greatly excited over the condi tions Imposed by the allies, whit h. it adds indignantly, are far mure strict than the Brest-Litovsk and Bucha rest treaties. The Wolff Bureau makes much ado over a telegram from Constant inopie which explains "that the ? Turkish people arc bearing their trials in a dignified manner and intend to re lend to remain loyal to the alliance with the central powers." The Wolff agency, the official dis patch naively points out. lulled io remark that simllat de? lu rations were being made in Sofia a fort night ago."
