The influence of his wife, ex-Kaiser Wilhelm's sister, is primarily responsible for his plight. Like her brother, she fled from the nrene of her disaster at the first sign of peril and is now in Germany. When Constantine resumed his throne after the world war, he found Greece at the highest point of her power since the classic period of Athens. 2.400 years ago. Constantine dis missed the warnings of the allies and turn ed to lfohenzollem as piration. He resolved to defy the Western powers and conquer Turkey for Greece. He counted upon dissensions among the allies to prevent inter ference with his plans, which included the incredible project of selling Constantinople. Had Constantine succeeded, German influences, thru the queen, might have dominated international relations in the Near Kast. Conntantine fell as Wilhelm Hohenzollern fell. Both were blinded by imperialiKin and believed their armies Invincible. The balance of power in the Near Kant has been made unstable and the dancer of botshevism again has become a reality thru Constantine's debacle. * * * THE only person who can save the situation, even Tin part, for Greece, is former Premier Venixelos. lie foresaw the disaster Constantine's policy would entail and has been a voluntary exile since the lattery return to power. Appeals to him to return to Athens since the Smyrna collapse have been met by the reply that Constantine first must go. Now that Constantine has gone there is little doubt Venizelos will become the head of the Greek ministry with practically dictatorial powers. He was the allies' friend during the war. He won for Greece a great victory at the peace conference. Hi* genius may yet be capable of undoing Home of the Hohenzollern mischief Constantine has inflicted. Grecian King Quits Throne ATHENS, Sept. 27.—King Constantine ha* abdicated in favor of Crown Prince George, it was officially announced today. In a message to the Greek people, the king stated that, for the national interest, peace and unity, he had abdicated in favor of the crown prince. The king, when faced by a revolt in the army following de feat by Turkey, tried to save his tottering throne by the declaration of martial law. but this was of no avail, and he stepped out in favor of his son. Constantine relinquished the throne when report* were received that transports loaded with mutinous Greek soldiers were speeding toward the capital. Mutinous troops have landed at several points near Athens and the few remaining members of the Constantine govern ment conferred with leaders of the insurgents. It was believed that bloodshed would have resulted if the king had held onto his fast-diminishing power much longer. The abdication of Constantine followed closely the resigna tion of the cabinet. It was reported Constantine made a plea to the revo lutionists for permission personally to assume command of tho Greek forces who expect to defend Thrace. GREEK FLEET SUPPORTS FORCES OF REVOLUTION The warship Kilkisdemos and torpedo destroyers have joined the insurgent forces. Rumors that various detach ments of unruly troops were marching from the provinces on Athens caused the utmost excitement among the populace. Confirmation was received here of reports that the" Greek fleet is supporting the revolutionaries. The abdication was preceded by a riot of the populace in the capital. The rioters served an ultimatum on their king in which he was given but one hour to step down from the throne. The king immediately called Gen. Metaxas into conference, at which it was decided the situation was in the hands of the revolutionists. The official abdication was then announced. Col. Gonaas, whose name Avas signed to the manifesto dropped from an airplane, which demanded Constantine's ab dication, is considered the leader of the revolution. TYhipoures. whose name was signed to another air procla mation, is also one of the leading spirits. AMERICAN WOMAN MAY BECOME NEW QUEEN In case Prince George refuses the throne—and it has been rumored lately that he has an aversion to sitting; on the Greek throne—among the next in line is Prince Christopher, who is now in Paris with his wife, the Princess Anastasia, who formerly was Mrs. William B. Leeds, widow of the deceased American tinplate king, who poured great wealth into the cause of promoting Greek national unity. Prince Paul and KINO OONVTANTINB (Turn to 8, Coluu.n 2) HOME] mS] EDITION] 4|||L BITTER WARFARE IN BALK/UIS TO FHIOW REVOLT Rebels Who Ousted Constantine Are Expected to Demand Revenge on Turks; Allies Are Disturbed King Constantine was forced to abdicate the Greek throne in favor of his son. Prince George, following a bloodless revolution of his army, who demand that Greece wage a finish fight on the Turks to prevent them from occupying Thrace. Other dispatches from the Balkan region tell of a bloody revolt in Jugo-Slavia, in which the Black Hand militarists were said to have proclaimed Prince George as king. Turkish forces in the neutral zone were reported en trenching and a battle is expected when the 48-hour ulti matum limit expires. The guns of the British fleet are trained on the Turks, who have thus far defied the allied order to evacuate. (•reek warships and large forces of soldiers that have cast their lot with the revolutionists, led by Colonel Gonatas. are reported to be moving on Athens. The greatest disorder prevails there and the country, a s » far as can be learned, is without a government, the cabinet having stepped out of power just before Constantine'* abdication. The Greek upheaval seriously complicates the attempts of Great Britain, France and Italy to bring about peace la the Near East. The Greek revolution is in protest against the staad 1 taken by the allies, who expressed themselves in a note to Mustapha Kemal, leader of the Turkish nationalists, as favorable to Turkish occupation of Thrace, whk i was ceded to Greece at the conclusion of the world war. In Paris, diplomats believe that it is almost certain that the revolutionists will move into Thrace and attempt to hold the territory. In this event, it is believed that Kemal would insist « entering Thrace at once with his victorious armies. If this happens—and it is considered most likely, by many authorities, the situation in the Near East would pass entirely from the hands of the allies and one of the most bitter wars of the Near East between the Turks and Greeks might come to pass. * • • BRITISH FLEET READY CONSTANTINOPLE. Sept. 27. Reinforcements of Kemalists were reported here today entrenching in the neu tral zone to strengthen the positions that have been seized in defiance of the allies. (luns of the British in the waters adjacent to the Chanak area, where the British are entrenched, have been trained on the Turks. A clash is expected as soon as the 48-hour ultimatum cx* pi res. Sir Charles Harrington, commander-in-chief of the British forces, is confident he will be able to cope with the situation if hostilities start. He pointed out that the Brtish fleet en tirely dominates the area. * * * ATHENS, Sept. 27. —British and French ministers have sent a note to the Greek government suggesting that Greek warships be removed from Turkish waters, where their pres ence is hampering the prospect of peace. Mustapha Kemal, leader of the Turkish nationalists, yes terday protested against the presence of Greek ships in the Bosphorus straits. JUGO-SLAVS REVOLT! BERLIN, Sept. 27.—Revolutionists—the Black Hand militarists—have proclaimed Prince George king of Jugo slavia. according to unconfirmed reports from the Hungar ian town of Baja, which is on the Danube river, 90 miles from Belgrade. The revolution followed a bloody clash, the report said, in Belgrade. * Croatian decentralists are also reported to be behind th« movement. Prince George, who was bom August 27, 1887, is the eldest son of King Peter. George renounced his right of succession to the throne in 1909. Prince Alexander, now the ruler of Jugo-Slavia, was at that time designated crown prince in place of his brother George. "RESULTS TELL THE STORY" WHY?
