In '.he Balkans. Some re- ports give it as a certainty that an attack on Sa'.oniki is prepared, while from other sources comes the news that an attack on Albania is being planned. The allies nre continuing to land troops at Saloniki and to strengthen their positions, while the Greek troops have occupied a posi- tion between the allied lines and the Bulgarians. Clashes have already occurred between Greeks and Bulgar- ian raiders. It is espected that Greece will not interfere to any great extent, but her troops are taking up positions which wi'rt make it possible for them to resent any invasion by the Bulgarians. Jt is believed that any attempt by Germany on Egypt is doomed to fail- ure. Within the past few months Britain his been carrying on exten- sive defence works there and along the Suez Canal, and it is felt that the Germans can not concentrate any large number of troops on tills new campaign without impairing her effic- iency in.other theatres of the war. Premier Asquith is the Bri- tish house of commons to authorize the raising of another miFiion. men. If this is made possible Britain will have raised closo to five" millions j Bince the opening of the war, and will be prepared for any emergency. WHOA THERE. RASCflL i. THE KINO WE teuu THE.
