LONDON, Oct. 7. The allies have
broken off diplomatic relations with
Bulgaria and news is momentarily
expected of that nation's active par
ticipation in the war on the side of
the central powers.
Its king and the late leader of Its
government being at odds, Greece Is
forming a coalition cabinet, pending
the construction of which its policy
will be obscure. There are no mis
givings in Knglandhowever, that it
will co-operate In any way with Bul
garia. The cabinet crisis has In no
manner impeded the landing of allied
troops at Salonikl, and the fact that
these forces are on Greek soil la con
sidered the best guarantee that
Greece ultimately must align itself
with the entente powers, with which
Fremler-elect Zalmis is in sympathy.
