“ ARGUS ” SPECIAL,

Constantinople, Oct. 23.

Great efforts have been made during the past few days to overcome the difficulties which have been raised by the Turkish delegates at Cettinge regarding the cession of Territory to Montenegro, and the ambasadors of the Powers have been endeavoring to induce the Sultan to give definite orders for the surrender of Dulcigno and the districts of Gruda and Dinosah to Montenegro, in accordance with the undertaking formally given in a recent note to the Powers. The Ambassadors of Germany, France, and Austria have taken and important part in urging this step on the Sultan, who has in consequence repeated his representations and orders to Riza Pasha, in command of the Turkish troops, to complete the cession of the territory within a period of five days. Beyond this order no advance has been made towards a settlement of the difficulty which has arisen among the delegates at Cettinge with regard to the mode of effecting the transfer of Dulcigno.
