ENTENTE AGENTS ACTIVE
AMSTERDAM, Aur. 24.
"Premier Bratlano, of Rumania, Is ready
to Intervene on the sido of tho Untente
Allies, but tho various governments have
not yet come, to nn understanding on tho
question whether Rumania shall have a
' decisive or only an advisory voice In tho
peace negotiations," says a Bucharest dis
patch to tho Berliner Tageblatt. "The
temporary tranquillity apparently prevailing
In Rumania must not bo Interpreted In
Germany as meaning that the Rumanian
Government docs not think of Interven
tion." LONDON, Aug. 24. The Hungarian
newspapers are being flooded with tho most
pessimistic Information concerning Ru
mania, and that country's poslble action
la absorbing the press and public, accord
ing to a Budapest dispatch to the Morning
Post The Hungarian public bcllevr-a, e.iys
tho dispatch, that the liberty they enjoy
at the hands of the censor Is designed to
prepare the, people for tho worst.
Tho military expert of the Pestl-N'aplo
says: "The entry of ttumanla Into the war
will not at first affect tho military situa
tion It the Balkans, for tho Rumanians will
have to adhere to the united strategic plan
of tho Allies nnd will not be permitted to
go straight for Transylvania. Dobrudja
and Bulgaria will bo their Immediate aim.
Five hundred thousand or six hundred thou
sand men of the Rumanian army are not
the chief factors for the consideration of the
Central Powers, but rather tho problems
presented by the new territory which the
Russians will be allowed to use freely In
the Invasion of Hungary."
Reports, chiefly from German sources,
that Rumania Is about to Join tho Allies,
continue to be received.

SERES, DEFENDED BY GREEK
AND FRENCH FORCES, UNDER
HEAVY FIRE BY THE BULGAKS
LONDON, Aug. 24 Tho ancient Greek
city of Seres, 43 m les northeast of Salon
lca, Is under attack by a strong Bulgarian
force, according to Athens dispatches to
day. The Greek garrison Is co-operating with
French forces In defending the city. French
artillery is replying vigorously to a heavy
Bulgarian bombardment, while tho Greeks
under command of Colonel Chrlstodoulo3
are throwing up entrenchments. Tho Seres
garrison Is belnu reinforced by small Greek
detachments which retired upon the cliy
after spirited fighting v ith numerically
superior Bulgarian foicas.
On virtually every other sector of the
Balkan front the Bulgarian offensive has
been brought to a standstill. The Serbs
havo yielded but little ground on tho left
wing since their first retirement. Anglo
French forces are consolidating and Im
proving their positions in the Dolran re
gion on the center.
The Bulgarian drive southward against
Seres, a city of 35,000 inhabitants, has
created a new and more critical situation
at Athens. If Seres falls the Bulgars will
have virtually cut off all the Greek
troops operating In eastern Macedonia, a
territory highly prized by the Bulgarians.
These Greek detachments, in tho event
Greece enters the war, could rejoin the
' main Greek army only by a march along
the seacoast and across a narrow isthmus
formed by Tachino Lake and the sea.
Artillery actions along the Allies' cen
ter and right wing on the Balkan front
were reported In an official statement Is
sued by the War Olllce today.

OF AMERICAN EXPORT
TRADE TO BE PUSHED
Chairman Webb, of House Ju
diciary Committee, Urges Its
Necessity as Offset to
WASHINGTON, Aug. 24. The first of
tho legislative measures designed to pro
tect American exporters against European
competition nt tho end of the present war
will bo pressed for pas.s.ige tomorrow In
tho House, by Representative Webb, of
North Carolina, chairman of the Committee
on Judiciary. This measure, known as tho
Webb export trado bill, permits tho for
mation of common selling agencies for the
foreign trade of tho United States, at tho
Bamo tlmo placing such associations beyond
the operation of the Sherman antitrust law.
Chairman Webb Is prepared to combat
every effort to sidetrack his proposition at
tho session now drawing to a close.
"The necessity for this legislation," said
Mr. Webb today, "rests largely upon the
doubt that exists In tho minds of our ox
porters as to the correct construction that
should be placed upon existing antitrust
laws as applied to organizations engaged
In export trade. In order that this country
may hold the foreign trado which has been
acquired during the European war, and
successfully meet the competition that will
be offered when the war Is over, our ex
porters must be In a position to compete
In the cheapest and most effectual manner.
"We are Informed that the combinations
of British coal brokers fix tho contract
price for bunkering ships nt Newport Newb,
nnd by thoso methods tho contract price has
been fixed nt five to seven cents per ton
below the domestic price. In the same way
the copper trade of tho world has been
ruled by a v.ibt German metal-buying or
ganization, which ha? subsidiaries and
affiliated companies In all the leading
nations, and through Its operations for a
number of years has bought millions of tons
of American copper at prices averaging
nearly a cent a pound below the price paid
by American consumers.
"The bill Is drawn bo as to leave In full
force our anti-trust laws as applied to our
own markets and as affecting difforcnt
Ameiican exporters In their dealings with
each other. Export trade, by forco of the
methods adopted by other leading nations,
Is largely a matter of competition between
nations. Our home market is to be deter
mined by competition between the several
producers and manufacturers,

"News has Just arrived, mainly from Ger
man nnd Turkish sources, of a massacre oi
Armenians which occurred nt the bjcix : Bo
zantl Tunnel through the Taurus Moun
tnlns. Some 12,000 Armenian rtJ '"
eluding women nnd children, had been col'

working under German supervision. To
ward tho end of .tune some 40 of the moro
nctlvo and Intelligent of the men wcro
massacred with the Utmost brutalltj and
their bodies dismembered and mutilated
Then tho women were separated rrom tne
men nnd driven In ono direction, and tho
men taken In another.

officials agreed that 'something had oc
curred In that vicinity" nnd when pressed
further said that the 12,000 Armenians,
who had thought they were to escape death
because they wero working for Germans,
were suddenly ordered 'to move on their
emigration.' This Is the euphemistic teun
now employed by tho Turkish newspapers
In referring to the gradual destruction of
the Armenians. The Governor of Adnna,
brother-in-law of Knver Pasha, was Intrust
ed with this task "
