REFUSES TO ALTER HIS :
VIEWS WHICH WERE
WITHIN TEN DAYS
furkish Ambassador's Announced
Intention Leave Causes
(By Associated FTCBS.)
Washington, Sept. 2?.-A. Rustem
Bey. tho Turkish! arobasndor, has in
formed prudent W ilson that he doeo(
not alter the views he recently ex- (
pressed in a published ktervlew and
will leave the united States within
The ambassador refused to discuss
his action further than to say. he bad
asked his government for leave of
absence, which ha was certain would
be granted, and would leave for Con
stantinople within ten laya.
The announcement ol the ambas
sador's withdrawal, ths?gu not un
expected, caused a proinuud sensa
tion in diplomatic circle;.
Coming close on another diplomatic
interview yesterday of fhich the ad
ministration at once took cognizance
that of Baron von Schoo: of the Ger
man embassy, on the possibility of
war between th? United States and
Japan, lt was Interpreted as an indi
cation of President Wllwn'a determi
nation to silence commcit by foreign
diplomatists, considered dangerous to
the neutrality of this cum try- lt was
understood the president would de
cline to receive diplomat fits who make
comments which he conriders obnox
ious. Although Count wu Bernstoff
and Barn Sehen ihave repudiated the
baron's interview, the state depart,
ment, at the direction cf the presi
dent, today ?aa- still looking Into lt.
The Turkish ambassador in his in
terview ca^i^r? ' particularly OD?
jecticn?b?e ts ihe a?u?nistzv*ion,
said the needing of - American > >ty
ships W .Turkey In connection with
the repart of uprisings against chrlc
tians '-would lead to a strions situa
tion. At the same time he said that
while massacres had previously oc
curred'in Turkey, they were the same
acta aa many people might commit
under; provocation. By say of illus
tration he reminded th? American
people of the lynchings of negroes and
the "water cures" in the Phllliplnes.
The ambassador later explained to
administration officials personally and
by letter. Tbs president directed Mr.
Bryan to say that tn answer that the
statements made by the ambassadors
were objectionable to the American
government and bnt for the fist that
a tense situation existed in Turkey,
which he did not desire to aggravate
the diplomatic propriety committed by
the ambassador might be s subject for
discussion with th? Ottoman govern
The president asked whether the
ambassador cared to make any expres
sion and today's announcement that
he did not wish to alter his view in
any way and would leave in a fort

SOUTHERN FARMERS AND
Wilson Assures Committee That
Everything Possible Will Be
Done To Aid the South
Washington, Sept. 24.-President '
Willson today assured a large delega-'
tion of Southern farmers and con- 1
gressmen that he realized fully the
acuteness of the cotton situation,'
owing to the lack of demand tor the 1
st?ple duo to tho European war, and '
promised to take under consideration 1
a suggestion for a government loan. '
The president pointed out, however, '
that extreme care should be taken 1
not. to put into operalon any unsound
economic policy that might emoarraso !
the government In tho future. '
C. S. Barrett, of Georgia, president
of the National Farmers* Union head- 1
ed the delegation and appealed to the
president to give his support to tho
bill. Introduced In the house by Rep
resentative Henry, providing for di-.'
reel government loans to cotton '1
growers. i j
Mr. Barrett told the president that '
in spite of the "buy-a-bale" move- |
ment and other relief measures the
demand for cotton was still Inade
quate and the price not sufficiently 1
high to help growers. He declared I
a very serious situation would con-,
frot\t the farmers of the South unless .
th* Henry bill or legislation similar
to it was passed. !.
"I need not say that the gravity of
tho situation ls very manifest," Presi
dent WllBon said, "and I want you to.
