ROME, Aug. 21-8pecll Cablegram to
Nesr York World and Omaha Bee.) The
filing for England has grown warmer.
Th World correspondent had a talk . with
a military man thin evening, who . re
quests that hla nam l kept secret, and
who served In Africa In the flrat IJbyan
campaign. He affirm that ther la a
secret agreement between Italy and Eng
land, whereby Italy' neutrality ahall
crane the moment Austria' position In
the Adriatic threatens either this coun
try tr the triple entente. Then Italy '
fleet and army ahall b at the disposal
cf England.
In return. Italy will regain Ha beloved
little penlnaula between Tneirte and Flume,
where there are co many Italians under
th Austrian yoke. ' and so many cen
turies of Italian traditions, for these
were colonies In the days of ancient
Rome, and again during tha palmy days
of tha Venetian republic.

Anti-Austrian feeling become stronger
her Very' flay. " Offlfnf hav notified
their, staff that their men would not
take up arms for Austria, and that the
officers would refuse to preeg their men
to do- so. Thus.1 traditional hatred
stronger, than all political alliances.
If war comes, the king. It Is staled
by military naen. will go Into tha cam

moved from Rome' to north Italy. The
king Is a good Uctioian and much re-
apected ly his soldiers.
The second In command probably would
be General Tussoni. who has seen much
active service In Africa. But all these
arrangement ara being kept secret, so
It Is impoilbU to say who will command
under his majesty.

One of the curious features of the Itall
Ian situation' la tha unobtrusive opinion
of a modest bureau laa small street with
tha motto: "For the Defense of Italian
Liberties," over the entrance. Tha bureau
enlists volunteers. 'who will go to the
French frontier to help tba French with
a guerilla- warfare. They have had several
hundred recruits elnoe tha opening yester
day, and people declare they will march
within ten days.

tinct operation against a fighting fleet,
but appear to be scattered on the chance
of catching Individual war or fnerchant
"In consequence of this policy, neutral
ships, whatever their destination, are ex
posed to the gravest danger. The Danish
vessels, the steamer Maryland and the
steamer Broberg, have with'n the last
twenty-four hours been destroyed by
these deadly engines In the North sea.
