Lapatbsictl, presented his resignation to the premier yesterday afternoon. The premier and the military league induced him to withdraw it. Col. Lapathsicti's resignation was the out- come of a scene in the chamber of deputies yesterday when the war minister is submitting the atony re- organization bill attacked the admin- istration of ex-premier Theotokis. The supporters of the ex-premier protest- ed and left the chamber in a body. Later M. Theotokis made a demand upon Premier Mavromichalis for the war minister's removal declaring that a majority'of the chamber would ab- stain from .taking part in the sitting unless his demand was complied with There were rumors that unless the supporters of the ex-premier atend- ed the sittings the military league would establish a dictatorship and carry on the government without the chamber. For a time the situation was very involved and great excit- ment prevailed, owing to the appre- hension that deeper reasons underlie the seemingly trivial outburst.

Speaking at Liverpool, the Premier made a strong pronouncement on the efficiency of the navy.

Pre- that the navy today was able to maintain not only this year but for many more before us, our suprem- acy at sea and should the necessity arise, which God forbid, .to guarantee the integrity of our shores, protection of our commerce and the inviolability of our empire."
