HERE IS A REAL HERO TWIN ELEPHANT ARRIVES FROM INDIA Con .tuutliiople. Aiuei lean expeits who liMve Investlgateil the financial condition ot the former Ottoiuau em pire say they are convinced that it Is fundamentally sound. Several con siderations are advanced to BUpport this conclusion. First, It la stated that the popular jMlnt of view that Turkey was bank rupt before the war was partly cre ated nrtitielallly for the benefit of for eign financial Interests with the ob lect of frightening other would-be In vestors, and for political reasons of establishing spheres of Influence. The fact that Turkey was always able to secure loans Is cited as evi dence of her financial soundness. though against this may be advuueed the observation that s'..e was a polltl' cal center coveted by many powers who were played, the one against tho other, and that financial considera tions were somerltnes subordinated to political purposes. Turkey Did Not Default. It is pointed out that Turkey did not default on her indebtedness In re cent years, but funds for the payment of interest and amortization were con tinually increasing and doubling at the rate of every 15 years. The rev enues of the country as a whole ver Increasing at the normal natural rate of other prosperous countries In Eu rope. An enormous percentage of revenue never reached the treasury, the loss being estimated by some as high as 50 tier cent. This was partly ascribed to the system of farming out the taxes by districts, collet-tors paying In ad vance a certain sum and then collect ing what they could. For Americans who are considering the mandate question or of doing busi ness here under whatever government Is established, it is pointed out that the above facts show revenues already adequate to conduct the old govern ment, and that with good government the old Ottoman empire would have been financially strong. Ilefore the war foreign investments amounted to the equivalent of $1,078.- 000,000, of which $783,200,000 was In the public debt or loans to the gov ernment, the difference In private en terprises and concessions. The bulk of these Investments was n loans to the government. What was done with this money? Many of the louiis were issued below pnr, so that all of the money never reached the treasury.' Enormous commissions are believed to have boon paid to Euro pean hankers and In "gratifications" to various local ministers to get their support for the loans. Sums that did reach the treasury are said to have been squandered on palaces, harems "tid in other unproductive ways. So the loans did not. on the whole, rtate sources of new revenue, and therefore the public debt continually Increased. Spheres of Influence.' The object of such loans, it Is stated, i (tartly with the political Intent of making Turkey default o Inter ested (lowers could take over her finance and contrvl the country, a was done In lvl. This ted to the creation of loose phcre of Influence, (ermnny taking Kola Plain, the French, Syria, with the Italian want ing the province they at present oc cupy, and the Itrltlsh and the Russian seeking Constant Inop!. In the coun cil of administration of the Ottoman putill'- debt, which continued until the war untl has lieen resumed In some fas'ilon, there was one' Englishman, one Frenchman, one German, one Aus trian am one Itnllan, with the presi dency alternately occupied by an Eng lishman and a Frenchman. The conclusion of the investigators Is that If the investuiMits had been made for productive enterprise and hnd created sources for meeting In terest and the debt. It would have been child' play to curry the debt and pay It off. However, as the debt was lowered, In sp'.te of the above at tempts, additional loan were made. Not all of the sum borrowed by the government were wasted ; for exam. pie about $.0,0)0,000 was used to heir build the Bagdad railway.
