GOOD progress was made last week
by tbe Neur Lust conference In
Luusunne. Must of the time wus

that the Turks give sultuhle guarantees
for the satety of Christian uituorities,

that Turkey should Juiu tbe League of

Lord I'urzou's reply was that unless
Turkey yielded on this point, the con-1

took u day to -inisider this, and then
announced that Turkey would Join the
