Македонски заговоренички план во Италија. Борис Сарафов македонскиот предводник при престој во Италија разговарал со Ричиоти Гарибалди (четврт син на Џузепе Гарибалди з. прев.) при тоа биле договорени за подигнување на општо востание на Балканот. За таа цел планирале создавање на италијански одред од доброволци кој ќе се вклучи во македонското движење. Ричиоти Гарибалди ја одбил понудата да го води македонското движење затоа што сметал дека него треба да го води некој кој што е таму непосредно заинтересиран за Македонија.

Decide Upon Course of Action.
ROME, Feb. 27.-—The situation in the
Balkans, although it has apparently lm- [

willing to act in the capacity of arbitrator.
Garibaldi is secretly preparing a body of

equipped with arms, 2,000 rounds of cart-

was offered the general direction of the
. Macedonian movement, but refused on the
ground that he thought it better to leave
the leadership to some man directly inter-
ested in Macedonia.
Confidential and official information re-
ceived here from Austria point to the fact
that that Government is making extensive
preparations to check any movements on

It is known that negotiations are going
on between Russia and Italy with regard
to the Balkans. Signor Tlttoni, the Italian
Foreign Minister, alluded to these ex-
changes in the Chamber of Deputies on
Feb. 22, when he protested against the
anti-Russian manifestations in Italy, and
said they would endanger the relations of
Italy and Russia just when the two Gov-
ernments were ” exchanging views on very
vital interests.”
