The peace treaty fort close of half a millennium c No one could have foretold the long duration of that period when sultan Mohammed i1 in 1468 led his Turkish hordes forth out of Asia on a campaign of conquest, and, ap proaching the Golden Horn, entered through the Romanos Gate into the 'apital of Oriental Christendom, into that Byzantium which had been re -hristened with the more personal and mperialistic name of Constanti ipolis, and whose far-famed cathe 'ral, the sacred Sophia, had now to suffer transformation into a mosque. TURK CONTRIDUTIONU NIL. To civilization and economic devel tpment, to art and the discrement f world relations those 000 years of "urkish rule have contributed noth ng. The hordes remained hordes, main aling for a long time their nilitary trength but lacking the constructive tatesmanship that would have en dled them tu build a nation. The red sil.le of their crescent noon mowed down venerable ant noble civilizations like blades of tras. and under their standards the 'airest lands rotted and the richist 'ecayed. Even today Europe would cot o. so impoverished, so humiliatingly de endent upon the markets o foreign ontinents. had not its entire south astern part from the Adriatic to the Slack sea, as well as its Asiatic pro. ongation down to the Persian gulf. )een excluded from all economic and ctchnical development and con temned to a stagnation of which the only softening element, as in the -ase of all tyranny, was its corrup tion. Greeks, Serbs, Daco-Wallachians, \iongolian lBulgarians, all these peo nles were allowed to be merely 'rajan," non-Mohammedan serfs, the 'erd destined to be milked by the Turk. O'TRAGES IroN AJINENIANS. And there is surely no need today to tell the story of his outrages gainst the Armenian Christians and f the way in which the bestially cruel extirpation of an entire people ,as begun and finished before the very eyes of Europe. In that soil, fertilised with the blood of countless innocent victims. was also to be found the gigantic dung-heap in which every soit of dynastic and diplomatic inttigue araw rankly. In order to maintain their empire. pieced together as it was nut of lands acquired either by conquest or by marriage, the Hapsburgs found themselves under the necessity of openly or secretly condoning, if not encouraging. Turkish misrule; sn' this brought them into long conflict with Russia, which was bound not only to assist its Slavic brethren. :ihe Christians of its orthodox church, but also to seek for itself on the Bos phorus the only possible outlet into the open ice-free sea. France had inherited 'rom the lime of the Bourbans the titl. and offce of protestor of Christians in the Orient. and did not wish, even as in atheistic republic, to lose that profit able prestige; for had not the svgat patriot Gambetta warned against ng atheism as an artbrle of exportf CONTROL EO'IP AND INDIA. And no matter how loudly Englan-l might declaim against atrocitie,'. the cene of which was almost invariably Turkey, she nevertheless had to guard against a serious break with ,he Sultan. Still more nauseating did this poisonous brew become when WI'hnm I. began to fawn upon the Turks and when beside the grave of Saledin he proclaimed himself the friend of all Mohammedans, and interlarde'i all Turkey with his military, finan cial, and technical instructors. To the construction of the Ba-dsd railway he gave the sensational rob-r ing of a national and pplitical achievement, and so forced even upn coplacenlt Britons the conviction that he really intended to anatch from~ 's mother's home the supremacy 'if the seas and pre-emlinence in the world of Islam. and to secure fot hi. elf an overland route hy way of ti' Bagdad railway for the eonquet't If a prize had been givent for the most successful way of bringini tbout an alliance of France. Biritain and Russia against G)ermnany, our seaation-seeking Imperator Rlex, with his Siamese twin combintion of the "old G~erman god" with Allah ad his prophets. would surely have won ihe prize. Blecause Germany made her noisy demonstratinn1 in the Morocean har bor of Agadir. although merely for the acousti i effect, Italy thought she ould no longer place implicit confi dance in the secret treaty which gave to her Tripolitania and the Cyrmaika, and Mnrocco to France. and therefore she began the war which gained for her the possession of Libya. But because in this Tripolis war the weakness of the young Tuirks warn so plainly evident, the Balkan peoples ventured tupon their united uprising against the Ottoman op p ressor. And because in two Balkan wars METAL I ONLY 16 Size 1 All-Steel Doors and Delivered These Ar~ Se. C. N. BUC S Mass. Ave. N.

TURN HOSE OW SPARK. Without en Agadir, no Tripolis; without a Tripolis, no Balkan league; and without a Balkan war, no Nagyas detemination "to finish Serbia." All of which goes to prove once more that we should turn our fre hose upon the first spark of the con Ilagration. instead of waiting until the entire building is In flames. Today the 'dea of world domination has withered, together with other products of European megalomania. The great realms of the West and of the East are no longer willing to how before any usurper of power whomsoever. But Europe is subject to the nation which holds Gibraltar and Con-stantinople. the Pas de Calais and the Sound. and which rules un challenged in the North Sea and the Baltic. in the Mediterranean and the Black Sea, and from Sues northward to the rocky isles of Finland and to the Murman coast. Indeed. it Is but a slight exaggera tion to say that east of the Rhine there are for the time being only colonies. whose fate cannot be de termined against the will of London. As upon the wings of the wind the message flies through the Immeasur able spaces of the Mohammedan world: "England rules in the capital of the Caliph. He is their prisoner and is stripped of his power. "And Palestine. consecrated by a hundred Mohammedan memories, has been surrendered by the blond Kaffirs to the .Jews'" The first result of this. no more seri.us. per haps, than the whim of a brown-skinned fellow, is that Mr. Felsul with icy majesty declines the invitation to London. The second. however, must be taken more seriously -the rebel thrust of the united forces of the Young Turks and the Bolshevist troops nowhere encounters firm resistance. Even as far as the Caspian sea they are greet ed by anti-British Mohammedan furor and are able to drive the British out of Enseli. PROBLEM OF ORIENT. Statecraft is the art of calculating out of the sum of possibilities what i.+ practicable at a given point of time and then carrying through today, with the full force of statesmanlike determination and against every op. position the thing which could not have.been done yesterday and can no longer be done tonorrow. The problem of the Orient. which reaches from the Danube over the lands of brown and yellow peoples as far as Vladivostok and casts a broad shadow upon the western coast of America. was called into being by the Anglo-Japanese alliance and the Itus sian setback in Manchuria which was rendered posstble by that alliance; by the imperialistic expansion of France and Italy and by the unscrupulous use of black troops against white men inl the war. the latter a cond tion which, unfortunately, is still con tinued in the occupied territory. If we shall fail to find for this problem the solution which it still possible, anid therefore necessary, It will some day surprise the world with an explosion compared with which that of the summer of 1914 will sound in memory's ear like a child's toy horn beside the trumpet before whose reverbesations the walls of .lericho fell. ilut t'. find this solution the tricks of the charlatans fef the marketplace will not suffice. What has been st tempted thus for is nothing but ill considered patchwork. In order to male use of the period of Germany's impotence and the distress of Franc e IEngland has hastened the apparent lciuidation of the Turklrh Empire. and~ has thereby knit together more firmly than ever the bond between the 11oishevildl and the Turkish leaders-Enver. Talaat & Co.-who have becomne enormously fich as the result of the war. HOPES FORt 4'ONQ1FEST. And now the little Turk hopes to achieve what was denied the genius of the Corsiean.
