REVOLUTION? I Reported Abdication of Greek King. j RUMANIA'S MARCH. 1 Enemy Admits Evacuation of Kronstadt. I Dramatic events follow one another in the Balkans with startling rapidity. A Greek report, so far unconfirmed, states that King Constantine has abdicated, and that the Crown Prince has been appointed Regent. Official news Jias beerf received at Salonika that Bul- garia has declared war on Rumania. It was earlier stated that before doing so the Bulgarians would demand 200,000 Tur ks to assist them. Rumania's march into Transylvania is meeting with little opposition, and much territory has been occupied. Salonika, Thursday (received ,Friday). -Revolution has claimed its victims. Eflood has been shed, and loyalists* and revolutionists have exchanged shots. If the conse- quences were not more serious this was chiefly. due to the presence of Allied troops. At about 4.30 this morning I was aroused by a series of loud reports. I proceeded to reconnoitre. The house I am occupying backs upon the parade ground fac ing the Greek infantry and cavalry barraeks. Vivid flashes from the parade il- Vtiminated the foreground, and an- swering flashes pitted the darkness in the direction of the barracks. Two or three bullets struck the house. The fusilade lasted barely five minutes. What happened was that; after half promising to support the movement, the infantry and calavly finally and categorically refused to participate in the demonstration ar- ranged by the local Pro-Ally Com- mittee, and the men were confined to barracks. During the night pro-Ally volun- teers made a determined attempt to sieze the barracks. Salonika, Wednesday (delayed). —The news received here from Athens is very sensational, and pending confirmation must be men- tioned with all reserve. It is stated that King Constantine has abdi- cated, an dthat the Crown Prince has been appointed Regent.' M. Zaimis remains Premier, supported by M. Venizelos. It is added that a general mobilisation has been ordered.-Reuter. BULGARIA NOW Declares War on Rumania. Reuter "s message says:—It is officially announced in Salonika that Bulgaria has declared war on Ruma- nia. TO-DAY'S BRITISH BALKAN OFFICIAL. The Secretary of the War Office makes the following announcement: The General Officer Commanding the British Forces at Salonika re- ports that there is no change in the situation on the Struma or Doiran fronts. RUMANIAN OFFICIAL. Bucharest, Thursday (received Friday).—The following commu- nique was issued to-day:— On the northern and north-western fronts the advance of our troops continues with success in all directions. Our arm have occu- pied the Tarlunge Valley, near Brasso (Kronstadt), and the im- portant industrial centre of Petro shani. Our losses are very slight. On the southern front Austro-Hun- garian monitors bombarded Zim- nicea and Turnu Magurele.— Press Association War Special. ENEMY RETREAT CONTINUES 'Paris, Friday.—M. Marcel Rutin writes in the Echo le Paris": I learn that the Austro-Hun- garian retreat has continued beyond Potrisony, Brasso, and Kedzi Vasar- holy, and extends to nearly a quar- ter of the territory to be taken from Austria by the Rumanians. Heads of the Rumanian columns in the north are in Cvergio Massif, which is on the borders of the Carpathians and Transylvania, and is the ter minus for all the network of rail ways, which are being cut by our Allies. Press Association War Special. KRONSTADT EVACUATED. I Sunday Night Scenes at the Station I Amsterdam, Thursday (received Fri- day).—German reports from Budapest I state that the news of Rumania's declara- tion of war spread like lightning through KXQDstadt- On Ssnckw eveaina J>eQ¡Ð swarmed in hundreds to the station. From 6 p.m. onwards a large number of trains with valuables, documents and archives left. The first was followed with short pauses in the early hours of the night by refugee trains. Official notice of the evacuation was only given on Monday morning at nine o'clock, when the first official train left, taking 4,000 persons. The people remained perfectly quiet at the station. The even- ing after departure of several refugee trains the town resembled a city of the dead. Those who remained withdrew into their houses to await events. About 12,000 persons left Kronstadt, but the majority of the residents remained, with the burgomaster at their head. Many refugees arrived at Petroserry, distant a few hours from the frontier, The residents heard on Sunday night the bridge over the river Sil blown up, but they were prepared for this event, be- cause the town was continually full of trains and artillery. The fighting at midnight on Sunday came rather as a surprise, and the exodus began early in the morning, people from here as well as from the frontier places Lupensy and Vulcan, related to Rumanians, who wished to cross the frontier river, wading up to the neck in water, but were driven back by the Austrians. "Times" War Telegram (Copyright). Enemy's Estimate of Allied Strength. I The strength of the Allied armies at Salonika, according to the Frankfurter Zeitung of August 27, is as follows: French, 220,000. British, 120,000. Serbian, 00,000. Italian, 16.000 to 20,000. Russian, lfi,Ul»0 to 20,000. J1 We may therefore observe, says the Frankfurter," that General Sarrail's army is about 450,000 men in round figures. We do not know what direct reserves are available on the Greek islands. On the other hand. England has a reservoir in Egypt from which, if neces- sity arise-s, several divisions can be trans- ported to Salonika." EARLIER GREEK REPORT. Paris, Thursday. Telegraphing on Wednesday to the Petit Parisien." its Salonica correspondent says:— Seres is almost deserted. Colonel Christodoulos has retired towards Tchay- azi and Elescherai. At Kavalia, where the comitadjie con- tinue to exercise undisputed control, a state of terror prevails, and a number of the inhabitants have taken refuge at Thassos. To-day a demonstration was held with the flags of the various public bodies draped in mourning, to protest against the occupation of Kavalla by the Bul- garians. Upwards of 1°,000 people took part, and it was decided to send a fresh protest to the King. ENEMY'S COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF. ? L Berne. Thursday.Colonei oiegemann, the military critic of the Berne Bund," states that General von Mackensen has been appointed Commander-in-Chief of all the Balkan armies of the Germanic league. M. Albert Bonnard, the editor of the "Journal de Geneve," confirms this in a signed article.-Wireless Press. This report, far which the" Journal de Geneve is good authority, would suggest that the famous Field-Marshal will have, supreme command of all the battle fronts' in South-Eastern Europe, from the Lower j Carpathians to the Greek frontier. Evi- dently Berlin intends to treat this whole field, created by Rumania's entry, the Russian advance through the Dobrudja, and the Salonica expedition, as a single theatre of war, and has sent Germany's second greatest soldier to assume the supreme command. If this interpretation be correct, von Mackensen would have at his disposal the whole Bulgarian army and the European forces of Turkey. RUMANIAN OFFICIAL. Hearty Welcome for Russians. Bucharest. August 31.—The following official communique is issued by the Rumanian Headquarters:— The general mobilisation of the army, which began on the night of August 27, is being duly carried out The declaration of war against Austria- Hungarv was delivered at Vienna at 9 p.m. on August 27.
