Salonikl. Greece. June 19.. The allied offensive in Macedonia, originally scheduled for midday and postponed on account of the condition of the Servian army on its arrival in Corfu, is now confidently anticipated toward the end of June, or at the latest, early in July. The activities of the Bulgarians east uA ctMimltM Inst week Ami thA gradual extension of artillery operations ' have led to the assumption from time to time that Gen. Sarrail's plans might be hastened and the allied attack begun at once. The outbreak of cholera among the Servians on their arrival on Corfu I proved a mixed disadvantage. It made their transport to Salonlki in time to participate in an offensive in May im possible. Moreover, it reduced their numbers materially. A great many more Serbs died than will ever be known, not simply of cholera but from entero gastritis, malnutrition and sheer ex haustion. Had to Chance Flans. The Servian army was in far worse shape after its retreat through Albania than had been supposed. The entire force needed full reequlpment and the recruits from Servia and the volunteers from America required drilling. Mar shal Putnik was no longer physically able to command and many of the lead ing officers were dead or too worn by their last narasnips to continue, ana a new set or officers had to be chosen An alteration in the general plan of the allies had to be made. Instead? of strik insa. first blow in the Balkans to draw off the German reserves from the west front, while a decisive action was be ing planned in France, It was decided to make the Macedonian offensive of the allies coincide with. Instead of pre cede, the general allied offensive on all fronts, generally supposed to be sched uled for midsummer. 130.000 In Macedonia. There are now 130.000 first class Sar vian troops In Macedonlo. Already they have begun to take their positions on the frontiers of their native land, from the Vardar west to lake Prespa. Some objection was at first raised to the oc cupation of the first line trenches by the Serbs. It was said that the Serbs had suffered enough and that every Servian in good physical condition was needed to establish the Servian race, so near annihilated by the present as the two previous wars. On this point, prince regent Alexander was firm. "How can we reenter our father land?" he said to the Associated Press- correspondent, "save as- conquerors? Of what avail would it be to perpetuate a race content to let others do their fighting? The off spring of one Serb who has been a hero Is worth a hundred of those who being able to fight, have stopped at home." ITALIAN 0FFENSTE IS CHECKED BY AUSTRIANS Berlin. Germany. June 19.
