TURKS DELAY EAGE PA ISMET PASHA INSISTS ON EX CHANGE OF GREEKS FOR MOSLEMS. ARMENIANS BLAM TURKISH DELEGATE BLAMES POWERS FOR TROUBLES OF NATION. Lausanne. Ismet Pasha, head of the Turkish delegation, dashed the hopes of the Near Eastern conference for a speedy and satisfactory settlement for the protection of minorities in Turkey when, in an address here he insisted upon an exchange of the Greek popu lations in Anatolia for the Turks in Macedonia. He demanded exclusion of all foreign Interference in Turkey, which, he said would protect the re maining minorities, as the Turks had always been able to get along with other nationals when they kept out of politics and were not stirred up by out side Influences. Ismet declared that Turkey would not accept Lord Curzon's proposal to have the League of Nations administer the affairs of the minorities, as that would mean that the" foreign powers would continue their interference in Turkish affairs and encourage the mi norities to appeal to the League of Na tions. This plan, lie asserted, would result In the exploitation of minorities for political ends under "the lying cloak of humanltarism." The Turkish chief delegate reviewed the entire history of Turkey from the time of the conquest of Constantinople. The Turks, hes aid, had lived peaceful ly with the Greeks and Armenians un til 100 years ago, when the Russians began agitating against the Moham medans under the pretense that Russia was the protector of Orthodox Chris tians in Turkey. He charged Russia with being re sponsible for the attack Gladstone made on Turkey in behalf of the Ar menians and maintained that the so called Turkish atrocities against Ar menians frequently had been in the nature of reprisals for pogroms per petrated by the Armenians through en couragement from Russia, which wanted some excuse for Invading Turkey. "The Armenians brought the mas sacres on themselves," Ismet Pasha declared. "They have abused Turkish generosity and dabbled in politics." According to Ismet, there now are no minorities In Turkey which can claim the right to belong to any other nation, thus disposing of the Arme nian claim for a national home In Turkey. Lord Curzon replied in a spirited manner to Ismet, saying it was the first time the conference had seen the Turkish delegate as a historian, and always Jiad thought of him before as a soldier and a diplomat. The British secretary for foreign affairs said the conference was deal ing with the affairs of peoples in the greatest distress and must find a so lution for the problem of the miser able refugees, and without regard for ancient history, and must frame a treaty which would protect these un happy people. In emphatic tones he denounced Ismet's demand that there be a forced exchange of Turkish and Greek populations and declared that the minorities must remain in both countries.
