The Kaatcrn Question.
London, July 8. Greco-Turkish
nffnirs appear to bo ro-outeriug an

porte dispatched a circular to the
representatives abroad containing
a skilful defense of tho Turkish

frontier lino of Tbessnly north of
the rivorPeneios, which it rogards
as tho natural boundary.
It appears that the Sultan has
convinced himself that the powers
will not resort to coercion as de
cided, lest tho concert of Europe is
dissolved. On Sunday ho sum
moned a council of ministets for
an extraordinarv sitting at Yildiz
Kiosk, with the result that after
a heated discussion a report was
decidpd upon in favor of resum
ing hostilities if ponce should not
be concluded within a week. The
minister of war has sent a tele
gram toEdhom Pasba announcing
This accords with all tho news
received for tho last ten days.
The Turks are rapidly strengthen
ing their positions in Thessaly,
massing troops at Dbomoko, forti
fying velostino, and in other ways
entrenching t bemselves firmly.
Tho Thessaly harvest has already
been reaped, by Turkish soldiers
aud large quantities of grain have
been stored at Elassona.
According to a circumstantial
report of a conversation between
tho Sultan and an officer of his
household, Abdul Hamed com
plained that tho war had been
forced upon him, and when ho
was victorious Europo refused
him either territory or indemnity.
Therefore he intended to resist to
tho utmost. Ho said: "We have
nothing to fear. These powers
failed to coerce Yassos nnd his
2000 adventurers, so -what can
they do against 300,000 victorious
troops in Houmauia ? Supposing
they wished to coerce, who would
undertake the task ? I have in

According to this report tho
Sultan discussed tho possibility
of llussin and Gormuuy attempt
ing coercion, and declared that he
was entirely rondy to ineot thorn
both. Tho foregoing moy bo per
hnps only a bluff, nud it is oven
alleged in some quarters, among

pressed that this attitude on tho
