This doubt haa been Increased by the

Its belief on Its unshaken faith in the
loyalty of the other powers concerned.
Russia holds that the Bulgarian govern

banda crossing the Turkish frontier. Aus
tria's loyalty Is likewise unquestioned. Its
dlfflcu'.t domestic situation renders the pros

distasteful to It and consequently Mace
donian events must alone determine the
situation. No general revolt Is seriously
expected this year. April was the most
dangerous period, the weather favoring in

unable to mobilise troops.
The present attitude of the Russian gov
