Roumania probably lias It in her pWcr to send Bulgaria Into the war or to curb the expansionist desires of Czar Ferdinand. If the present situation In the Bal kans is a miniature reproduction of the crisis that existed among the larger Powers In July, 19U, Itoumonla's rolo greatly resembles that played last year by the United Kingdom. When the dancer of war became acute after Austria's ultimatum ,to Herbla, France and Russia urged Great Britain definitely to announce hor stand., President Polncare of Franco even addressed a personal message to King George, urging that a declaration be made of British Intontlons. Tho argument advanced and suggested was that If the British government an nounced It would side with France and Russia under all circumstances the Teu tonic powers would not enter the war. Great Britain, however, was unable to give a qulpk, unqualified assurance of any kind. Roumania Hesitates. Roumania is holding back In similar fashion now. Bulgaria Is mobilizing, and so Is Greece, bn the Roumanian government Is remaining quiescent. Bulgaria, apparently. Is proceeding on the assumption that Roumania will not nttack her, and If Roumania clings to her neutrality, it is not probabltt Greece, for the moment, will move to Serbia's nsslsty.ice. Thi. milfpnra will not hp gambling too heavilv with fate If thoy take tho chance of Roumanla's neutrality, in? Roumanians all but guaranteed tholr entrance Into the war In compnnv with Italy, only to back out at the last mo ment when RusMa began her retreat. The present is a far less auspicious mo ment for a Roumnnlan declaration of war aealnst the Germans than was last Afav. Since the Bucharest government exhibited hesitancy then, Indecision can bo looked for now, Bessarabia a Hope. Roumania has shown no favor to tho Austro-Gcrmans and has been criticised by tho Germans for refusing to permit the shlDment over her railways of am munition destined for Turkey. Never theless. It must be a vcry-serlous prob lem for Roumania whether, under pres ent military conditions, it will bo pos sible for the Ttoumanla army to conquer any of the neighboring Austro-Hun-garlan provinces. The possibility of taking Bessnrabla from Russia is an alternative. By spend ing her time weighing chances. Rou mania is In danger of fbcing left to choose only after her peace Influence has gone, and when the war zone com pletely encircles her. HERE AGAIN IN WEEK Renewal of Submarine Warfare Worries U.

While tho pur pose of tho conference is not announc ed. It Is assumed that It will be with reference to the Arabic case and sub mnrlno warfare.
