CANEA, Crete, March 6.— The foreign

another step in behall of the Turks, ana
fuel has thereby been added to the in

The Consul is on board the Rodney. It

NEW YORK, N. T.. March 6.— A cable
dispatch was received by D. N. Boiassi,
the Greek Consul-General in .New York,
this morning from M. bkouzes. the Minis
ter of Foreign Affairs, say;ng thai Greece

is instructed to give immediate informa

United States and expects them to do
their duty. Ail the Greek citizens of this
and other cities were notified of this order
to-day. There are 20,000 Greeks in this
country, of whom about one-fourth are
subject to conscription. Failure to obey

The Greek Navy consists chiefly of unarmored cruisers and half ironclad sloops of war and gunboats, a flotilla of sixteen torpedo-boats, only eleven of which are in commission; three first-class
steel battle-ships, all launched within the past seven years; one coast defense ship and one armored cruiser of ihe type of thirty years ago.

back as 1866, and so it is evident that King
George sorely needs the support of every
able-bodied Greek in his struggle. The
men whom this call affects are only too
willing to go if they can only afford tne
cost of the journey. The Government haa
no appropriation for the transportation
of the reserve?- I receive daily hundreds

days of Marathon and whose lives are at
their King's service. Considerably over

Botassi, "that on Monday war will be de
clared. King George has been given
until noon on ihat day to declare his in

the tone ot dispatcnes I have recently re
ceived that King George's answer will be
the brave, defiant answer that Greece" has
always given to her enemies, whether they
be great or small. In the name of King
George I wish to officially notify all
Grecian reserves who are in this country
that their fatherland calls them back to
the ranks, and to all. Greeks, whether they

they have not, in the name of my king

BERLIN, Germany. March 6.— The
authorities of the Foreign Office here con
tinue to express confidence in the ultimate
submission oi Greece to the demands of
the powers for the withdrawal of the Greek
fleet and troops from Crete, though the
King and Government of Greece, for rea
sons of domestic policy, may go to the
most extreme verg» of war with Turkey
before complying with the requirements
of the powers' demand. The latest official
advices from Athens point, to the certain,
fact that the foreign representatives will
leave the Greek capital on Tuesday if the
reply of the Government of Greece to the
ultimatum of the powers is unsatisfac-
The tenor of the reply of Greece to the
demands of the powers is already fcnpwn
from the personal communications of
Premier Deiyannis to the foreign Minis
ters and an answer will be substantially
that Greece declines to withdraw her
troops from Crete altogether, but will
offer to station them in certain districts
of the island, provided the Turkisn troops
be confined to c?rtain other sections,
while the Cretans shall bo allowed the
freedom to vote upon the question wheth
er the island shall be annexed to Greece or
placed under an autonomous adminis
This plan is known to have the approval
of France, Italy and Great Britain, but
theatitude of Austria is doubtful. The
Kaiser and the Czar, however, will be cer
tain to reject this method of settlement
and will insist that a complete evacuation
of the island by Greece must be prelimi
nary to further negotiations.
The terms of the reply will lead to a
prolonged exchange of communications
between the powers and cause a cessation
of action in the meantime.
If as the result of communication be
tween the powers the blockade of the
Piraeus should be enforced, there in still,
however, a prospect of a settlement of Ihe
trouble without resort to arms. It is re
c.tlled how events developed in 1886, when
Greece made a claim toa section of Mace
donia to balance the acquisition of East
ern Roumama by Bulgaria. Greece at
tnat time mobilized and massed troops on
the frontier and had several encounters
with the Turks. The powers presented
Greec? with an ultimatum and demanded
her disarmament. After a delay of a
week Greece answered the ultimatum, and

An Editor's Little Son Suffers
Terribly. Itching Intense, Face
Raw and Bleeding from
Cured by Cuticura*
"- • '
My little boy was afflicted with Eczema In
acute form for nearly a year, during ■which
time we tried without success every known
remedy. The disorder appeared on the right
cheek and was of a blistery and bloody form.
His pillow, mornings, would bear the bloody
imprint of the side of his face, while it was
impossible to prevent the little fellow from
scratching his face, owing to the intensity of
the itching. I was advised to try Cuticuka.
The first application was made before putting
the child to bed, and the appearance of the
affected parts showed a noticeable improve-
ment the next morning. As a result of the con-
tinued use of Cuticura my child has as fair
and smooth skin as can be found anywhere.
