Decision of Roumania Alone Can
Curb Territorial Ambition of
By J. W. T. MASON.
NEW YORK, Sept. 28. Tho key to
the Dalknn situation Is nt Ducharoat.
Roumania probably lias It in her pWcr
to send Bulgaria Into the war or to
curb the expansionist desires of Czar
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
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.
Renewal of Submarine Warfare
Worries U. S., But Outimism
Is Felt Here.
Ambassador von BernMorff will
make another visit to Washington in
a week or so. Secretary Lansing will
bo bock by that time. 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.
Renewal of German submarlno activ
ity in the war zone keeps officials here
anxious lest something cause a new
cilsls. The fact that in attacking the
ti.i..i. ......(.,. t th. Anirlot'nlumblan
yesterduy, the commander of a sub
marine lived up to the letter of in
ternational law has caused optimism
here, however.
It Is ftbout time for Berlin to advise
this Government what conclusion It
has come to with respect to the at
tack on the Arabic.
Although the case of Ambassador
