Weekly IitakliiM MTI •ally TWENTY-THIRD YEAR. SULTAN ENTERS AN OBJECTION Sultan of Turkey Objects to the Proposed Foreign Naval Demonstration in Turk ish Waters. London, Aug. 22.—The Turkish am* bassador called at the foreign office during the day to make inquiries re garding the report that it was the in tention of the powers to make a joint demonstration in Turkish waters and to enter a protest if anything of the kind waa contemplated. The foreign office officials made it clear to him that Great Britain has taken no action of this character and it appears as if Italy will also refrain from carrying out her decision to dispatch warships to Turkey as the Italian embassy says no report of their departure has yet been received. This is taken by the embassy to indicate that there have been developments making the step inadvisable or unnecessary at the present moment, perhaps due to the Turkish acceptance of the Russian de mands, which was confirmed at the Turkish embassy. The negotiations respecting Mace donia are conducted on the Continent, Foreign Secretary Lansdowne and most of the ambassadors being away from London. The diplomats point out that the scheme for a settlement of the Mace donian question outlined by the Inde pendance Beige could not be approved by the powers, as it is evident Turkey would never submit to a peaceful oc cupation of the Bosphorus and the Dardanelles. A Turkish official said this could only be done after fighting. TURK8 ACTED LIKE FIEND8. Slaughtered Every Peraon They Met in Kruahevo.
