Athens, Oct. 6. Believing. Greece was
nlmut to be blunged into war. King
Constantine hurried by automobile from
his summer home and forced the resig
nation of Premier Venizelos within two
hours, it was learned today.
The ruler heard at his summer home,
about the sensational speech of Venize

the premier declared Greece would re

Htudied the parliament record a few
minutes and then hurriedly summoned
the premier. . Meantime opposition lead
ers had reached the palace and had
told the king that Venizelos was about
to make an even more -startling state
ment. In the brief heated session with the
king, Venizelos resigned. Later the
ministers followed suit and their resig
nation were promptly accepted.
The king is willing to go to any ex
treme to insure Greece against any
aggressive Bulgarian act, but he does
not wish to array Greece against the
Constantine feared Venizelos was
leading the nation into an open alliance
w ith the allies.
Cabinet Not In Harmony.
Paris, Oct. C. Premier Venizelos of
Greece has resined because the other
eight members of the cabinet were
silent when the vote of confidence in

Deputies, according to an Athens dis

Venizelos explanation of landing of
French troops at Salonika, and stood
142 to 102, with 13 members of the
Chamber not voting.
These dramatic events came in the
wake of bitter debate in which Venize

them into war, and criticized the land

President Poincaire. .
Simultaneously, more French troops
were reported landing at Salonika.

Disavowal of Arabic Torpedo
ing Makes Certain
New York, Oct. (5 "It is reasonable
to assume that a solid foundation for
the best of friendly relations between
America and Germany has been laid,"
German Ambassador Von Bernstorff
commented today, apropos of the Ger
man disavowal of the torpedoing of the
Arabic. He declared the letter he sub
mitted yesterday to Secretary of State
Lansing explained everything that
could be said concerning the present
status of the German American sub
marine warfare controversy.
. Pruise of President Wilson's diplo
matic course and statements that Bern
storff 'g letter is a cumplete backdown
by Germany featured today's editorial
comment in the metropolitan dailies.
Administration Is Ready.
Washington, Oct. (t The administra
tion is ready for early action clearing
up the l.usitnma controversy witn
President Wilson and Secretary of
State Lansing are prepared to effect
full settlement of the whole submarine
issue originally provoked by the loss
of American lives in the torpedoing of
the giant Cuuard liner. Germany's
complete backdown ou the Arabic tor
pedoing has paved the way for smooth
ing out the Lusitauia case also.
Keparation for the 100 American
lives lost in this disaster is not yet
assured, but informal negotiations be
tween I.nnsing and German Ambas
sador Von Berustorff will begin imme
diately. Germany is not expected to
disavow the Lusitanla sinking of
change the position she occupied be
fore she altered her submarine policy
at America's request. But no difficul
ty is expected in securing satisfactian.
Bernstorff has admitted authority
to adjust the submarine controversy to
America's satisfaction an striking evi
dence in the Arnbic case. Wueu he met
Lansing' yesterduy he was told how
complete the disavowal and admission
of liability for loss of American lives
must be. He at once returned to the
embassy, drafted a note, fully meetiug
the president s demand and dispatched
it immediately to the state department.
This action was taken without con
sulting his government but that Ger
many will repudiate his course, is in
conceivable. Wall Street Stocks
Are Unsettled Today
New York, Oct. 0. The process of
reckoning for the infatuated specula

is in progress. This was" in effect im
mediately today ,in fan the prices of
some war industrials indulged in an
other hysterical adviuee this morning
and a few rose from .'1 to .10 points. This
demonstration was timed with the
much exploited announcement -iu this
morning's papers of a professed rise of
a new era of great ieet trade com
binations, following the Midvalo com
bination for munitions manufacture.
In a sweeping downward movement
many war stocks most favored by the
excited public fell from 5 to 10 points,
declines of from 7 to 9 per cent be
ing common. The volume of trading
was greatest during the break. The
closing of speculative accounts through
stop orders and exhausted margins was
so rapid thnt brokers could scarcely
keep track of what was happening. The
