The Young Turks were wonderfully
clever as conspirators, but none of
them had administrative ability. In
stead of devoting themselvesNo the busi
ness of real reform when they gained
control of the government, they played
politics. They were theorists, and each
had a different theory df government
which he Insisted on trying.
The result was complete disorganisa
tion of governmental machinery. The
war, by revealing the almost unbellev
abl thoroughness with which they had
wrecked one of the nnest military es
tablishments In the world, proved to
everyone their Incompetency.
Change For Better.
Even those who originally favored
constitutional government could not but
admit today that any change from
Young Turkish rule would be an Im
provement. For the present, al any

revolution Would meet wltn the least
opposition. That the change will mean,

considered very unlikely. He has been
