Armenian Case Raises ; , Possible Diplomatic Issue With England The Armenian caBe seems likely to " day to cause an Aaiglo-Amerlcan, rather than a Gorman-American, con troversy. The proposition hinges on the ques tion whether tho torpedocul ship was a British transport or a peaceful frelght- cr. Tho London admiralty's statement that the vessel was on "admiralty busi ness" suggested the former, but the International Mercantile Marino's New York agent asserted the latter. If It was a transport. It Is generally agrqed among officials that It ought not to havo been permitted to load and ejear from an American port. Moro than this, many moro vesscta aro engaged or are about to engage In tho same business. If the Armenian's j proceedings In American waters wcr , unneutral, tho same thing, it is un officially conceded, must bo true of these others. Tho Issue Is considered one of fact, was tbo Armenian a transport or was It nol? This question has not been answered. It remains for investigation to settk It. Issue With England. Eo far as any Issue with Germany Is concerned. It is fast becoming a closed Incident.

NEW YOrtK, July 2. A clash of an tagonistic Interests between thp Slavs and Italians has occurred in Albania, containing possibilities of disturbance to the peace conference nfter the war. Albania's geographical position across the Adriatic sea, opposite the southern extremity of Italy, has caused tho Koman government to Insist that Ital ian Interests In Albania arc paramount. Otherwise, tho Adriatic cannot become an Italian lake. Until Italy became a belligerent neith er Serbia nor Montenegro showed nny Interest In tho Albanian situation. Tho natural military offensive of the two Balkan kingdoms is rather in the op- posito direction, mrougn rsosma anu Herzegovina. The only Intelligible rea son, in fact, why the SlavB should strike at Albania Ih because It la becom ing necessary for them to possess a dofenslvc weapon which may compel Italy to moderate her antl-Slavonlb policy. A large part of the territory which Italy hopes to annex as her part "of the war loot Is Inhabited almost entirely by Slavs. SlaVB aro dominant In the environs of Trieste, through most of Istiia, and in the Dalmatian main land and Islands. If Italy has her way, half a million Slavs will pass from AuBtro-Hungarlnn to Italian sovereign ty at the end of tho war. The serious military situation In Gallcta doubtless compelled Russia to refrain from pressing her objections to Italy's expansionist policy when the Rome government was seeking Its price for Intervention. But tho stip ulations in the bond do not seem to have been signed by Serbia and Mon tenegro. It .Is probable Italy did not believe those countries worth consid ering In her bargaining with the allies. If this turns out to bo the truth, tho subtle policy of Italian dip lomacy is in danger of being effec tively countered by the Slavs. Tho occupation of Albania by Slav troops will be of Immense service to Pan-Slavonic Interests when the day of peace comes. Not only must the allies make peace with tho Turks and Teutons, but also they must como to agreements among themselves. From this standpoint, the Serbian and Mon tenegrin expeditions now overrunning Albania are really directed against Italy and not agalnBt tho enemies of the allied powers. Because of the Klnv ennnler stroke. Itnlv nrnhnhlv will be unable to annex tfie Slavonic territory of Austro-Hungary and at the samo time estrbllsh her claims to Albania. One of the two imhltlonsi must be abandoned. Like all the other belligerent powers. Italy seems des tined to find unrealized at the end of the war some of the purposes she pro claimed when Bho entered the conflict. $3 up Lover's Knot, with largeparkling diamond, S7.00 up.

The- contract between tho city today, and when I visited It last November, a month after Turkey's cntranco into tho war, Is amazing. In November, Con stantlnpolc was a city living In terror.

One actually gets tho Impression that war has so long been a part of the business of tho Turks that It no longer Interferes with routine endeavor. Coming to Constan tinople from the- Bulgarian frontier, I was struck by the extent of tho agri cultural operations everywhere under way. Praftlcally the only evldenco of mili tary preparation to bo seen In Con stantinople are the recruits continuing to arrive dally from all parts of the empire In the ragged or picturesque costumes of their district. Occasionally at night there also pass out wagon trains of transports or companies of artillery or cavalry, but tho public bccs Uttlo of them.
