cross examination by the" district at
torney, Mr. Reldford was asked to
tell what tests he used in compiling
the valuation of the land composing
tbe Mahuka site. In answer to this.
Mr .Reidford stated that he had used

Reidford said, however, that he had
used these rentals merely as a com

suffer no alteration. The . victorious march of the allies, however, soon caused much speculation as to what'
territorial changes there would be in the event of Turkey being defeated. Replying to questions in the House,
as to (Whether the Great Powers had agreed before the outbreak of the Balkan States; whether oQer com-;

would uphold the territorial dominion of Turkey over Macedonia Sir Edward Grey said that the, answer to
the lir8t two questions was in the affirmative. Wit'j regard to the third and fourth, he said that, as communications-were
