' -IT TASHINGTON. D. C, Aug. 28. VV Advices reaching Washington through official channels indicate that the recent activities of Luis Ca brera, secretary of the treasury of Mexico, and Scblafflno, head of the petroleum bureau of the department of Industry, commerce and labor, have been for the purpose of bringing back into line the Mexican congress and members of the Supreme court, who. It is Indicated, are somewhat out of step with the Carranza regime. This was the interpretation of events by state department officials when they learned that the advice to the Su preme court by Cabrera was of an official character. Cabrera urged the Supreme court not to hasten the hearing of the Am- paro cases brought before the court by the American oil companies. The eases are aimed directly at the presi dential decrees which the United States and foreign governments re gard as an effort of confiscation of foreign owned properties. It is now apparent, according to advices from Mexico City, that there la a definite effort In eon Kress to withdraw from Carranza the extraordinary powers in finance under which lie Issued the "snollatlan decrees.

Now it is essential to recall this circumstance because the argument raised, mainly by American repre sentatives, that the Bulgars must have part of Thrace, is based on the assumption unless thia is assigned to them there will be another Balkan war. Yet when Bulgaria had. wtth the consent of the Serbs and the T3 reeks and the farced as sent of the Turks, not. merely -he territory now in question, but much more, when she had the raro Aegean ports of Dedeagatrh and Kavala. only the former of which is now under debate, she nevertheless precipitated a Balkan war. Further than this, when at Bucha rest, despite her unprovoked attack noon Greece, she was still permitted to retain Dedeagatch. she again at tacked Servia and Invaded Greece, this time favored by the treachery of certain Greek garrisons. AS'ia she was defeated, but net until she had once more been guilty of innu merable atrocities which were aimed at exterminating the Greek pecula tion in Thrace. It win be seen, therefore, that there is absolutely no foundation to the nrgument that to give Bulgaria Dedeagatrh and a atrip of territory permitting direct nc cess to the Aegean will preclude n nether Balkan vrar. When she had Dedeagatch anl Kavala into the bargain she attacked her neighbors; when she was still permitted to hold Dedeagatch. she made a second attack. What Bul garia seeks is all of Macedonia and Salonlca: it was, to acquire these that ahe has fought three wars, with Turkey In 191Z. with Greece and Ser bia in MIX, and finally as a Ger man ally In tho recent world war. It is now nroposed to give Greece much of the contested territory, but to cut Greek territory in half by a neutral strip descending the west bank of the Maritza to Dedeagatch.
