LONDON. ? With rain and sleet In
terfering with the operations on the
8omme, Interest has switched to the
Balkans, where further news states
that the allies gained a brilliant vic
tory and captured Monastlr. It is
doubted that the German forces can
escape. They are rapidly being en
circled tfy the allied forces.
telling blow will come when the fact
Is borne 1& mind Chat the combatants
are face tor" face for something like
,4,000 miles, if all the colonial and'
other minor battle sones are Included.
( But even allowing for 'the tremen
dous Importance of the stupendous
Somme offensive of France and Brit
ain, there Is no doubt that from the
German point of riew the key to the
whole situation Is to be found In the
.Balkans. It Is there that definite in
dication of tbe destiny of Germany
and her allies.
The Irresistible logic of the situa
tion IS that IfRomanla Is not crushed
by next Spring, nothing but a miracle
can save the Germanic' allies from
military defeat later in the year,
with Rumania's army Intact, the
Austrian flank will be exposed to It
?at a moment when Brnslloff will be
reftfy; for another big Gallclan offen
sive, which ths allies fully expect
wjtl sweep the Austro-Hnngarian ar
mies back over the Carpathians.
Aside from this treat of Austrian
disaster, the failure of HIndenburg
to splash and Invade Rumania would
seal the doom oj Bulgaria and Tur
key, because the allies' drive on Sofia
from the Dobrudja and Macedonia
next spring will be combined with
the biggest united offensive yet de
viled ? from Several points of the
western front, the Italian front, and
possibly the middle and northern
sectors of the Russian front, and the
simultaneity and heaviness of these
blpws will make it Impossible for
Germany to reinforce southeastern
Europe with her own troops.
| In fact, the loss of the comtttand
of the Balkans would- atterly cripple
Germany, depriving her pf reserves
of men for her eastefn and western
fronts Which she mlght^thefitfie eb?
talo from Turkey and Bulgaria, and
also of important food jtapplles at a
moment when she will t* feeling the
hardest pinch of the blockade.
Oomreresly, the ovsrrmmtag of

WASHINGTON.? The administra

tho Atlantic City peace ' conference.
Its patience la already at a breaking
point, and a few more days may

Mexicans will be told emphatically
that the United States cannot sit in

tive tactics are to be pursued. The

the administrations plans, its objeet
being primarily for the protection of
American rights, and American prop
erty In Mexico. The big problem la
that if these are unobtainable, tho

be taken by the Atlantic City peace
conference, no one will nay, as Sec
retaries Lancing and Baker alono
