Koir.c news is gloomy, Avhich is pro-
bably due "to the clash of GrsecoItalian: interests in the Adriatic. Tlie Rome correspondent oi the Petit Journal states that the outstanding facts of Lord Kitchener s visit were the abstention of Ministers from the luncheon, and the arrest ot the Bulgarian march on Monastir, indicating a Gra>co-Bulgarinn agreement for the Germans to occupy Monast-h, and hand it over to Greece. An interview which has taken place between Baron Sonnino, Italian Minister for Foreign Affairs, and M. Lambros Coromilas, Greek Minister at Rome, is expected to have more iniportaiit results. r The Paris press publishes an Athens telegram, stating that it is believed that Greece is disposed to accept the Allies' demands for demobilising or withdrawing her troops from Salonika, leaving the Anglo-French troops at complete liberty. Astonishment is expressed at reprisals being carried out during the progress ot pourparlers. ' ; The pro-German newspapers screamingly denounce the blockade, and excitement prevails at Piraeus. At the commencement of the blockade, ships were sent to Italy and elsewhere to search Greek vessels, and Italian warships participated in the search.
