morning, and the destroyer Garlbuldlno 1
steamed Into the harbor at noon living

replied that he was unable to comply
with the demand, tnd emphatically
refused to surrender.

Frontier. September 2?.?Dispatches'
from the Important Italian cities tell
of much enthuslusm over the cxpedi- i

of which are now centred at va-,

volunteered for service, but those
?re to be chosen by lot.
The police measures to check dis?
orders have beer, made very stringent,
and especially In the provinces of ';
Modena, Parma, Revenna. Forll and
Brescia. Large contingents of troops
and sjr.rbineers are occupying the most
rlotrJus districts The Itall_n fleet will
occupy the whole coast from Tripoli
through Danghazi to Derna. The mili?

rapidly as possible, and It is expected
that the fleet will have completed the
occupation by to-morrow. The Italian
newspapers. Including those of the op?
position, approve the aet'on of the gov?
ernment, but some of the Socialist pa?
pers oppose It.

Such was the opinion of the Turkish '
ambassador. Zia Pasha, to-night, ex-,
pressed during the course of an Inter
View with a reporter of the Associated

"I am absolutely without late- intel?
ligence from my home government.]

the ambassador said.
"Moreover, if war has been declared

the difference between this war and,

sla and Japun. terminated through the!
intervention of former President!
Roosevelt, and rather foresaw that the i
present outbreak would be so circum- !
scribed In its action and presumably;
so brief In duration that no mediation t
would be necessary. Nevertheless, hol
wanted again to emphasize the fact'
that fthe powers, twice in the history
of tile world, had guaranteed the In?
tegrity of the Turkish empire.
No Reprisals Feared.
In answer to a question, the ambas- t
sador said he <lld not think there would j
be any movement in Turkey against {
Italians or other Europeans. The. cor?
respondent was able to communicate j
the advices from Constantinople liidl
eating that the government had de-\
elded to take no action against thai
Italian residents.
"This bears out "what I have just
said," commented tho ambassador, and
shows that nothing is to 'he feared In
the direction of Turkish reprisals."
His excellency was greatly Interested
In the announcement that the Cabinet
had resigned, saying that under the
circumstances such a development was
to be anticipated. Said Pasha and
Kaimll Pasha, who assumed the port?
folios of Grand Vizier and Mi" later of
Foreign Affairs, he said, might bo
styled statesmen of bro\d Ideas, hav?
ing the highest interests of their
coutry at heart. They are distinctly
liberal In their political tendencies,
and may be counted upon to treat the
present grave situation with tact and
Equally interesting to the ambasen
dor was the report that the Italians
had actually landed at Tripoli. Even
if tho Turkish government had decided
not to offer an armed resistance to
Italian occupation, he was not at all
sure, he thought, that the Inhabitants
of Tripoli would tamely submit to n,
ohango of regime, whan thotr sym?
pathies and ties of many kinds bound
them to Turkish dominion.
Tho attitude of tho Barber tribes,
who form the greater part of Tripoli's
population of about 1,000,000, must be
counted upon. How would they look
upon the Italian Invader? In short,
Tripoli, he thought, would not submit
to Italian rule without.a struggle.
The correspondent remarked thai for
years the world nod been' discussing
the possibility ot a holy war.
"Do you think. Your Excellency, that
suoh a religious corullot is now prob-1
Holy War Kot Feared.
"I souroely think so," responded Zla
Pasha "Certainly nothing Is to be
feared In that direction In Turkey
proper. In Turkey there Is good feel?
ing between Mahometan and Chris?
tian. Under tho new regime Chris?
tians have been Incorporated Into the
army. To-duy Christian and Mahome?
tan are standing loyally side by side
In the great and growing Turkish!
army. Hut what Tripoli may do 1
cannot say.
"This war, which Italy has forced
upon us," concludod tho ambassador,
"is most regrottablo In every way, and
most unjust. Turkey will defend her?
self and fullll her duty towards her?
self und the world."
History of the Trouble.
The trouble between Turkey and]
Italy, which culminated in a declara?
tion of war at Rome, dates back to|
1S78. when, with the. making of the'
treaty concluding the Russo-Turko'
War, the powers are understood to have :
agreed to permit Italy a "pacific pene?
tration of Tripoli." Turkey claims'
that this right has been respected ever'
since. Italy has colonized Tripoli I
until her Interests In that African
province nre very great. She has as- j
serted. however, that her subjects have
been mistreated by the Ottoman au- '
thorltles und constantly discriminated:
against. Frequent disputes have arisen. ?
but the prolonged negotiations havei
never resulted satisfactorily to Italy, j
At the time that the Fr.anco-Germun <
differences regarding Morocco were]
acute. Italy turned her attention again;
to Tripoli, and In subsequent negolia-j
tlons with Constantinople set forth
that many outrages against her sub?
jects had been perpetrated, and forj
which no redress had been made. She:
assumed a decisive attitude, and pres?
ently began tho mobilization of her,
army and navy.
Italy's standing army in 1010-1911'
nunvhered approximately 225y'00/! men
and 14,000 officers, but a fa<- greater;
number could be put In the field In
case of necessity.
The Italian navy consists of the fol- j
lowing vessels commissioned, built or :
building: fifteen battleships, nine ar- ;
mored cruisers, seventeen unarmored
cruisers and gun vessels, thirty-six de?
stroyers, an equal number of first-class
torpedo tioats and twenty-two sub
ma rlnes.
As a whole, the Italian navy is gen?
erally ranked fifth among nations. As '
seamen, the Itall.uis are skilled and :
Ingenious; they have constructed soma
remarkable war vessels.
Naval lists show that Turkey has a ;
fighting strength of nine eo^st defense ,
ironclads, five protected cruisers, six :
torpedo vessels, one gunboat, twenty
one torperioboat destroyers, twenty
seven torpedobonts and two subma
rlhes. As compared with the greater i
nations, this array Is a negligible
quantity, There are Ill.OOO officers, as :
against 9.0AO marines. English and
American officers play an Important '
part In Turkish naval affairs.
The empire Is divided Into seven :
army corps districts, and there arc two j
Independent divisions at Medina and i
Tripoli, respectively. The total fight- i
Inr; strength la close to a million men. '

Mussulmans are liable to military st- j
Diverting Coal Supply.
Cardiff, Wales. September 29.?The |
Italian government is diverting Its j
supplies of coal purchased here to |
the naval bases at Syracuse. Taranta i
and Agosta.
Washington. September 2?.?The
declaration of war by Italy upon Tur?
key, coming as It did with practically
no notice created a great sensation in
official Washington. The State De
portment had felt reasonably confident
that the Other signatories to the Ber?
lin" treaty, which fixed the status Of j
Turkey; would be able to bring com- j
blned pressure to bear upon Italy to |
divert her from her purpose to seize j
Tripoli. I
Indications are that America will j
keep clear of the present struggle for
domination In Africa. If that is pos- 1
slble. It Is distinctly assc.rt-;d at the
State Department that the United
States hag absolutely no political in?
terest In that part of the world.
The only conclusion that could be
drawn from the developments of the
past twenty-four hours was that what
has happened Is only af natural se?
quence of the Franco-Gcranan-Morocco
negotiations, and that all along it had
been understood tacitly that Italy
would be given a free hand to deal
with Tripoli In return for rejra'ning
from intervening in the Muro-j.-an dis?
pute, although her Interests In that
country of the Moor;, are tiuito as im?
portant as those of any of the ra?
tions of Northern Europe.
Date this afternoon the State De?
partment received an appeal from Os
car Straus, formerly American ambas?
sador to Turkey, to Intervene between
Italy and Turkey. Mr. Straus's ?ppll
catten was based upon article III of
Tii.j Hague Convention, of \vhlcn l oth
Italy and Turkey were slgn*itar:-js.

The naval representation of America
in African waters during the present
trouble will be limited to the scout
orulser Chester and the little gun?
boat Scropion. The Chester passed

i The Scropion has hcen the station

: be ordered to remain at Malta or

Cheater in safeguarding American in

with sucli suddenness that there has:
been no opportunity for the War and
Navy Departments to dispatch trained
observers from the general staff to
report upon the Incidents of the war. '
It was said, however, that instntc- ;
lions would be sent to the American
military attaches at Rome and Con-i
