Allies All Accept Suggestion With Ex

at Once Fall in Line Slight Changs
Paris, Oct. 7. Austria has given ad
hesion to the plan formulated by the
French and Russian foreign ministers
to deal with the Balkan sltuatbn.
Austria, however, suggested a slight
change in the wording of the pro
posals, which met with the Immediate
approval of both M. polneare and M.
Sazonoff. The only effect of the
amendment is more sharply to define
the intnilons of the powers and pre
sent a more precise statement of these.
It Is understood the proposals do
not include a demand for the auton
omy of Macedonia, but urge the adap
tat ion cf the provisions of the treaty
of Berlin providing for a larger meas
ure of home rule. It Is believed here
the proposals will remove any lurking
suspicions In England that the conti
nental powers possibly were contem
plating a s'.'tt'enient wholly at the ex
pense of Turkey.
Olormany and Italy have approved
their ally's modifications; so that, with
full adhesion of the British govern
ment, which i.i expected today, the
powers will be In a position to sav to
the Balkan coalition that the Balkan
states will no longer have to depend
on the promises of Turkey, but In the
pledged word of Europe.
The French government Is confident
that all the preliminaries will be com
pleted in time to permit Russia and
Austria, na the mandatories of Europe,
to pre.ient a collective note to Sofia,
Belgrade, Athens and Ottlnjo tomor
row. Ah soon ns this Is done, Turkey
will be Invited to give guaranties

ise that Furope will take upon Its
shoulders responsibility for the reall

In official circles the feeling pre
vails that thin guaranty offered by the
powers ought to satisfy the Balkan
Ftntes, if, as they profess, their sole
motive !n mclillizltiT; against Turkey
was to fnre the reforms provided for
In the treaty of Berlin.
