Italy has de elared war against Dulgnrin, hut tlu ipiostion whether she will send troops to join the Uritish and French forces in Serbia remains as obscure as tho robiilts of tho fighting raging n Ser bia's eastern frontier. The Austro Goimnn armies which occupied Bel grade appear to have advanced moro than fitteen miles south or tho city, but tho outcome of the fighting be tween Uulgnrinns and Serbians along tho important Soloniki-Nish railway cannot be summed up so easily.

Uritnin is waiting anxiously to lenrn whether the cabinet ministers will bo nblo to compose their differences nnd con tinue the government without swap ping horses in midstream. Tho mili tary difficulties which confront the allies hnvo taken n position of sec ondary importance for the timo be ing. The cabinet has been holding long and frequent meetings since tho Bal kan crisis developed. Both newspa pers and politicians agree that vital differences of opinion hnvo arisen on or tho conscription issuo nnd tho nenr east question. In the meantime parly newspapers aro carrying on a bitter debate and exchanging accusa tions of lack of patriotism nnd of placing party and private interests nhovo those of tho country. Carson's Itcslgimlion The resignation of Sir Edward Corson, nttoniey general, was the firat proof of differences in the cab inet. The specific reason was with held, as in tho ease of tho retirement of Foreign Minister Delensso of France. Speaking in Dublin last night, John Redmond declared the position of the coalition government was precarious. "Any day wo may be faced will, another reconstruction,'1 ho said, "or with proposals which would cud in stantly tho political tmco and would rend the British pcoplo into contend ing fact ions." Klcctlnn n Calamity The cabinet and tho country ns a whole would regard a general olee- tio non party lines ns a calamity. If such a contest were fought on the question of conscription it might be expected to foment grent bitterness and class dissension. The anti-conscription newspapers arc demanding that a fair trial bo given to the plan of voluntary enlist ment under tho direction of tho Earl of Derby beforo there is any further talk of a change. Much discussion is heard of the injection of fresh nnd younger blood into tho cabinet. Only a few weeks a?o David Lloyd Geoigo had a largo following, but the anti-conscription-iats, virtunlly all of whom are iu his own party, now seem to bo lukewarm toward him. Ono complaint from the newspa pers is that n cabinet of twenty-two incuihors is too oumbersomo a body to manage tho affaird of the gocm meiit. CARRANZA PARIY I I.ARKDO, Tex., Oct. 10.
