SERSmAN SLUMP IN, GREECE. ——— A ——— MORE THAN ONE SEASON. GROWING STRENGTH OR ALLIES. ¡ Writing to Ule Daily Mail from Athens. Mr. J. M. N. Jeffries says. The last ten days nave seen the biggest, drop in German prestige in this country since the war began. And this despite Ouy evacuation of Suvla and Anzac during tha. period. A month ago this would have been* thought a disaster here and would have had a v ery bad influence on puMLc opinion, whereas now the Greeks have regard-ed it placidly as an incidental backward move in the chess game. The causes of this German slump have been external and internal. The exter- na!l causes have been the failure of the Ger- mans and of their henchmen to advance irt Macedonia and the oategoric declarations 0 General C'astelnau on the impregnability c>? the Allies' position there. Then the pap.rj keep the public well informed almost daily of the arrival -at Salonika, of nlPll- muiii. Lions, guns, and aeroplanes, and this, w: t. our RECENT FORCIBLE DIPLOMATIC ACTION, has made the public realise our increasing strength. The internal cause, or, rather, the causo native i-o the Greek people, is the knowledge that the Greek Army would ask the reason why if the Bulgers or Turks came over the border. In a previous t-elegram I have allurled to an intimation by General Mosohopoulos to the Government that 11' a.rmy corps could not be trusted to ha quiescent in case of an invasion. Since then three heads of army corps in Macedonia, the 3rd. 4th, and 5th Corps. have again informed the War Minister and the General Stan that they could not hold -in their m-i if the Bui gars or Turks appeared. Proofs of their owu feeling have been forthcoming from the men, too, without the intermediary of the generals. There lms been a mutiny .at Kavalla, ^hen the men cried. LET GS FIGHT OR BE DISBANDED. There ha e been any amount of frontier incidents, and iu Athens the soldiers, when certain officers wished to influence them t vote for the Government and its supposed.v passive policy, refused, and when the oflt- ers tried to use pressure the men replied i; We shall vote with our Mamrliche.i (rides) and vote against voii ifrst." On December 27 the King. in conversation witii M. SkoulouOis. the Premier, said to him that- the situation was no longer the same and that the, tilt-iniate Victory Stnd slipped from Cerman handa, t?f?sh.h?nd?'L he thought t\ wo'd be ?.b)?t"p,ti]'ir prestige and much "t ihei" interior. ,"i ove (I by these t j Cabinet ;ue to a great extent farced :.o acc pt thr inevitable, and through the V ai4 Minister .'Cu-rals commanding the troops near the frontier have been ordered t., their i.v.,ops so as to be prepared ? r j action against tlie Bulgars if necessary. Tiie I importance of this step will not be miss; i, ami the. bnowbidge of it may be takell to oe the prime factor ;.i-(i cause of the present ioi. ge' ing of tb, 4 lermans and their allies In the:e n:. •'oi'' i ;ii le position north of &•' ika.
