Decisive action by Italy is regarded in Rome as
imminent. A brief dispatch from Rome says the
Italian government has taken every measure to be
gin war on the side of the allies. It is also said in
Rome that there is observable a tendency on the part
of Bulgaria to adopt a policy favorable to the allies
and that the government hopes to act in conjunction
with Italy and Roumania. The attitude of Bulgaria
has been doubtful on account of her hostility toward
the other Balkan nations with the exception of
Turkey, which grew out of the second Balkan war.
Prince George of Greece is leaving Italy for
Athens to support the policy of his brother, King
Constantine, for the continued neutrality of his na
tion, in opposition to the faction which favors inter
vention on the side of the allies.
Dispatches reached Paris from Athens saying
the Turkish forts Dardanus and Kilid Basr, on the
Dardanelles have been destroyed and that batteries
which attacked mine sweepers have been silenced by
two battiships of the allies.
