Sir,-I read in the last Issue of tho Young Chronicle (March 2nd), sonu thing about "A Disastrous .Si«iw." J would like to remind tho "Chrautdo' writer tlm lie Is net as swd"z as lie thinks, for he had a tew great errors in what ho called 'A Disastrous Show.'

I think that some of the dust-storms that have been prevailing at Young for tho past few weeks must have effected the 'ears and eyes of the "Chronicle" reporter, and tho person ho got his information...

If sho intends to join tho Allies it is likoly thai sho has an understanding with Bulgaria that tho latter should remain quiet. Strong as sho is among tho middle class king* dome of Europe, Roumania could hard ly assail Austria in the north if Bul garia thundered at her southern gate. Or it may "be that Roumania is mobili sing because of the suspicious conduct of Bulgaria. Tho Bulgarian Govern ment lately borrowed money from Germany, and a portion of tho loan was to be in form of German and Aus trian arms. Tills transaction did not betray a very scrupulous neutrality. Roumania aa a lighting force may bo regarded as formldablo at this June* turo and In that neighbourhood. Bul garia will probably hesitate .to- jo'n Germany while tho Allies arO'doing such oxecutlon at*, the Dardanelle...
