BOND, FLORIST For Quick Results Try The Reformer Turks' Refusal to Protect Armenians Threatened to Break Negotiations Expected Ismet Will Propose New Method Satisfactory to Allied Nations. LAUSANNE. Dec. 11 (Associated Press). Ambassador Child's frank talk with Ismet Pasha yesterday on the sub ject of minorities residing , in Turkey made a good impression, in Turkish cir cles and exercised a calming influence on the entire Lausanne conference, which, nervously saw dangers of a break down of all the negotiations because of rue threatened rupture over the treat ment of the Greeks and Armenians bv Turkey. The friendly intervention of the American ambassador at the right mo ment has convinced the Turks of the im mense strength of world opinion par ticularly that of the United States on the need for a settlement of the minority problem. Ambassador Child urged Ismet to reconsider- his position as to the Ar menians and other dislodged populations, iwinting out that American contributors to relief work in the Near Kast desired to know that their gifts would help- the refugees in Asia Minor to settle in pcr m.iT'et homes. Turkish spokesmen believe that the American, representative at the confer ence was the natural arbitor of this vexing problem. They contend that Tur key desires to do the right thing, but add that any measures designed to satisfy world opinion must not violate Turkey's sovereign rights or force her to grant ex ceptional privileges to people, within her borders whom she cannot assimilate. Ismet's reply to Ixjrd Curzon's vig orous denunciation of the Turkish atti tude toward the minority question was awaited today with many delegates pre dicting that Ismet. bowing to high hu manitarian considerations, would offer new suggestions calculated to prepare ARmY IAi'j.-".ffll!yiif,yi' ..tjLjji'wiww ... ..... - - .tl , tg "I J1l If ''' ' Corner Main and Flat Streets Entrance . at Oakes's Barber Shop Sheepskin Coats, at 6.50-$13.95 Sheepskin Vests, at 7.

' The vessel lay in the liquor camp nig grounds for several days, accord ing to the federal agents, while small boats, operated Jtj- owners of the cargo, made futile efforts to run the government blockade and obtain the liquor.

' CURZON THREATENS TURKISH EVASION Must Protect Minorities If They Expect to Secure Treaty of Peace Con ference May Break. LAUSANNE, Dec. 14 (Associated 'ress). A refusal by Turkey at the Near East conference yesterday to accede to the -demand for a national home foi the Armenians or international regula tion of the rights of the . minorities in Turkey brought a sharp warning to the Angora delegation from Marquis Curzon, head of the British delegation. The British foreign secretary told the Turks that their persistent imposition of barriers to a satisfactory settlement of the minorities problem wag having a. bad effect on the conference imd the entire world. "When we leave Lausanne and it may be we shall leave sooner than you think when the world hears that the illied powers have been fighting the bat tles of the minorities and getting nothing but platitudes in return, the general im pression will be deplorable for Turkey," said Lord Curzon. ' "Do not let us darken this scene by "barges and counter charges of horrors. We wish to obtain a solution for the fu ture. "1 deeply regret this proposal for the fxchange of populations this bad and vicious solution for which the world will pay for a hundred years to come. 1 detest having any hand in it, but to say that the Greeks profvosed it is mon strous: it has been forced by the Turks through their expulsion of Greeks. "It is perfectly clear that the Turks wish to rid themselves cf the Greeks or to make their renditions of life in Tur key cruel and impossible. "iCoviewing Ismet. Pasha's address. Lord Curzon suid the Turks had rejected practically all the suggestions .made to hm. They had spurned the idea of an Armenian national home on the plea !1 at it would meiin the dismemberment f Turkev. and had rejected control or administration of the affair of the m noriiies by the league of nations or any other international body. "I implore the Turks not to take refuge in words." lie continued. "I urge ujon them to co-operate with the powers in an effort to bring about a solution of this tangled problem. "I venture to speak with pivat seri ousness, for the Turkish delegation seems hardly to realize the situation in whirh we are placed in this question ot minorities and in some of the other prob lems under consideration. "I reieat that we are here for one ob ject only, and that is to make peace, but tho Turks are continually obstructing. This cannot go on indefinitely. Europe has other things to do. "This question of minorities excites almost more attention than anything else we are discussing and we shall be judged especially by ir solution. "If we break on this question, if we leave these miserable minorities unpro tected, not a sir.ele voice will be raised in. defense of Turkey's position. The Turkish delegation may be supported by the Angora government, but it will r.ot have support anywhere else in the world. ' "I have spoken clearly, in a spirit of friendship and respect, but with all seriousness." NEW ENGLAND STILL SHOWS WILD GAME I; Conservation Measures Protect it Against' Increasing Horde of Hunters. BOSTON. Dec. 14. "About this time," as the old farmers' almanacs used to say, a frequently occurring paragraph in New England country newspapers reads somewhat as follows: "The annual game supper was held las night. There was a 'large attend ance and the hunters provided a boun teous repast." ' Although the wild turkey which set the style for Thanksgiving dinners on the occasion of the Pilgrims' first Thankgiving day 30O years ago has dis appeared from New England woods, three centuries of hunting with firearms has far from exterminated the wild life of the forests in this section. Even in the immediate vicinity of Boston, deer and ruffed grouse are seen occasionally, and squirrel, hare and foxes are Tegular inhabitants of suburban woodland. The pheasant, not a native game bird but in troduced some years ago, has flourished in Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire. Geese and an abundance of waterfowl pause on New England lakes and streams in their migrations. Only in Maine does the moose persist, but bears, common in that state, fire still found also in. the remote sections of the mountain country hi New Hampshire Vermont and western Massachusetts. Wildcats are shot or trapped in consid erable numbers every season. . In the fur-bearing category racoons, skunks and nuskrats are still plentiful, and in the wilder districts mink and otter are not infrequently found. The wolves arc gone; it is only rarely that a panther is reported, and then with doubtful au thenticity, and the dam-building beavers now are few. That the rupidly increasing number of hunters has not more seriously depleted the upply of game in New England is due largely to conservation measures. For many years all the states in this section have enforced as strictly as pos sible the closed season provisions of the game laws; and in recent open seasons be bag limits on various classes of game birds and animals have been made in creasingly smaller. Licenses also are re quired of all hunters, and in the cage of non-residents high fees are demanded. The game supper nowaday is often the sharing by an individual or a group of hunters of the results of a day's sport. But in a few villages in the heart of the woods it takes on a greater imiortance. Teams of villagers, .'O to 10O on a side, are pitted against each other in a bunt from daybreak to dark. The men go into the woods singly, each to his favor ite hunting ground. When all have re turned at night the spoils of each team are counted, and the one having the smaller amount of game pays all the ex penses incidental to serving an elaborate meal in which the meat courses range from squirrel pie to venison steak. EXPEL, WILLIAM LINDE. Immigration Authorities Will Not Allow Wall Street Bomb Suspect to Stay Here NEW. YORK, Dec. 14.
