diplomacy for tho settlement of
tho war iu southeastern ISuropo
must ibe made by Turkey. The collect

up by the cmbassadorial conference in

ish government at Constantinople.
Since knowledge of tho purpose of tho

Unofficiallj- has been given diplomatic
notice of its exact coutcnts, there seems
no reason why tho reply should not
bo delivered promptly unless Turkey
determines to procrastinate in tho hopo
that some unforeseen oven I. might turn
up to her advantage.
The Turkish delegates to the pcaco
conference, while ignorant, of the pre

predict tho answer will bo given
Diplomats oxpect that Turkey will
concodo Bomothing to tho allies with
tho purpose of inducing "the powers to
make efforts to bring tho pcaco delo
gates together, again for further nego

allies Trill havo an opportunity to show
whother their ultimatum to resume hos
tilities unless Turkey complies at once
with their demands ia as ironclad as
they profess it to ibe.
Ttcchad Pasha, head of the Turkish

week instructing them to leave Lon
