Roumania and Bulgaria.—Bulgaria's misunderstanding with Roumania, mentioned previously, was over the region called Silistria. The two countries lie in different spheres of groups of the great European powers. If Russia is forced to take sides with Bulgaria, Austria must take up the cause of Roumania. M. Delcasse, the French minister to St. Petersburg, is reputed to have been primarily responsible for the adjustment of the differences. Silistria is to go to Roumania, together with compensation, because of her neutrality in the war. This decision was accepted by both countries on February 21.
During February and early March heavy snows and blizzards stopped operations on the Gallipoli peninsula.
