■Signor Nitti expr^sed strong dejjre- 1
cation of what ho termed the mis
guided deed of D’Annunzio, because, he
said, it would propagate the belief,

spirit of tiie Italian people and result
in Italian aspirations in the Adriatic j
being met with strong opposition. “No ,
worse service could be rendered to tho
cause we are defending and have de- !
fended,” ho said. 1
"Persons advocating these acts j
against France and the United States,
Witi out whose aid Italy cannot re
ceover Adriatic territory are lunatics
aud traitors,” Premier Nitti declared.
