that Italy has Instituted no negotiations
but simply has lintened to propnsels ema

the situation fer Italy la dally becoming

made with persistence that It must soon
reach a definite deoleioN aa to what
eourse It will follow. The case of Greece
Is being referred to; Its assistance, even
If offered, might not now be accepted by
the atlles, and the same thing might hap

observers believe, tf It proposed to oia

The possible forcing of the Dardanelles

this faction, that Italy have a voice in
any uoh political division, but this it
could not expect If It entered any agree
ment with the Teuton arnes concerning
Treat and Trieste.'
Ko official announcement yet has been
made concerning tha Intention of the Itai

est approach to any definite indication
la found In the following paragraph la
the Clonals DTtaJta:
"Italy can at no cost allow Us position
