ITALY'S DOMESTIC CRISIS
(K«ceived April 28, 1 p.m.) LONDON, April 26. The "Daily Express" states that Sigiior Orlando is dominated by the Imperialiat, Baron Sonnino. The British delegation admits that Italy's attitude latterly ' has been very difficult, largely as a result of Italy's internal politics. The Government's position is precarious, and the only chance of survival is satisfaction of the demands of the Imperialistic elements. Italy's economic situation is serious, and if external aid, which is inainly America, is withdrawn, a revolution would be almost inevitable. On the other hand, the economic dependence suggests means of reconciling Italian opinion to the disappointment of the Italians' territorial claims.
The "Daily Telegraph's" Paris correspondent states that it is expected Signer Orlando, after securing Parliamentary endorsement, will challenge President Wilson to do likewise. President Wilson will scarcely be able to refuse, in which case his manifesto is likely to prove a boomerang, altering the character of tho American delegation,, and profoundly changing the' Conference's issues. ■*
