gives the result of inquiries by a mili
tary officer as follows:
After he had gained successes the
chief in command of the Balkan forces
intended to complete the defeat of tli«
enemy, but did not pay sufficient regard
to tlhe difficulties. Bad weather made
the conditions of the few roads which
lead across the barren country worse so
that it was impossible to supply the
army with the necessary provisions and
ammunition. At the same time that
the enemy collected fresh forces and
o|>ened au attack, the offensive had been
"It was thought prudent not to offer
[ decisive battle under these unfavorable
i conditions. Forced by adverse coudi
| tions our troops retreated from Servia
i but they are not defeated. That on our
retreat we suffered severe losses in men
and war material had been inevitable,
but reports are mutfh exaggerated con
cerning our losses."
The report -concludes with the state
ment that the Emperor consented to dis
charge the commander-in-chief, the res
ignation being demanded on tho grounds
rhat the commander's health was poor

STRANGE EFFECT OF WAR
ON FUTURE FISH TRADE
St. John's N. F., Doc. 2 4.— X.
strange effort of the war is its bearing
on the future of the fish trade oil' Now
Foundland and Martimc Canada. The
war has revived the alliance bctweeui
the Great Britain and I'ortmjißl and a
refcailt has been that a discrimination
made by Portugal for many years
against fish from New Foundland and
the Canadian niartime provinces, has
been removed. The products of this
region are now admitted to Portuguese
markets on an equality with those of
ail other countries.
Until hostilities began the chief
beneficiary of the conditions then ex
isting was Norway, which, bocauno of
general trade, with Portugal enjoyed
an advantage in the matter of duty
charged on dry fish entering Portu
guese harbors equivalent to from 25
to 3-5 cents per qtiintel of 112 pounds,
according to the fluctuation in the rate
of exchange. This g«vc the Norwegians
sufficient advantage (o permit them to
undersell the New Foundland and Can
anian product. Representations had
been made several times by the gov
ernment of New Foundland and Cana
da in au effort to obtain the removal
of this handicap, but without avail
until after the war began, when the
desired alterations were made.
