VIENNA. June 2Í. ;

Telegrams from Durazzo indicate that both the Government troops and 'the rebels have broken the armistice which

was granted to the rebels at the instance

of Prince William.

The rebels have protested against Prenk ; Bibdoda's forces marching against the in- surgents and bombarding and burning the

villages, and the Government have replied that owing to telegraphic interruption they were unable to notify Prenk Bidboda  

of the armistice.

ESSAD PASHA DISAPPEARS.     BELIEVED TO BE RETURNING

PARIS, June 24.    

The Rome correspondent of the "Temps" states that Essad Pasha, the

Albanian Minister for the Interior, who   was arrested and deported a few weeks   ago, has suddenly disappeared. It is sup- posed he is secretly returning to Albania.    

The special correspondent of the Lon- don ''Daily Telegraph" early on May 20   reported from Durazzo:-"During the last   few days the conflicts between Essad Pasha's followers and his opponents have     become fiercer, a state of affairs that has,,

caused apprehension in Durazzo and the neighborhood. The commanders of both

the Austrian and the Italian warships stationed before Durazzo undertook com- mon action in landing detachments of sailors for the protection and safety of   the Prince and his family. These men   have not taken any action as yet. The Italian Government are also keeping ia torpedo-boat flotilla in readiness. Essad

Pasha was taken on board one of the,. Austrian warships. Essad's reputation   has now been destroyed, and it need no longer be feared that he will disturb Albania or contrive the Mpret's fall. '   Essad Pasha wished to obtain the Crown   of Albania, and the peasants' revolt as well as Arif Hikmet's actions were his work. His further fate will be deter- mined later.
