Dodri, however, was n little mortified at my successful intervention In this Instanee, and decided to oven up the score. Next to sir Ewclin Pears, the most prominent English-speaking bar rister In Constantinople was Dr. Mini, a Maltese. 7U years old. The ruling powers had a grudge against him, for ho was the proprietor of the Levant Herald, a paper which had published articles criticising the union and prog ress committee, on the very night of the Tears episode Be.lrlg.went to Ir.

He was a good-natured about it and as pleased as a boy. At last be had "put one over" on the American am bassador, wjio had been unguardedly asleep in his bed when this old man had been railroaded to a fever camp In lAsIa Minor. But Iledri's success rvns not so com plete, after all. At my request Talant had lr Mlzzi sent to Konia, instead of lo Angora. There one of the American missionaries, Dr. Dodd, had a splendid hospital: 1 arranged that Dr. Mlzzi could have a nice room in this build ing, and here he lived for several months, with congenial associates, good iooo. a Healthy atmosphere, all the hooks he wanted, and one thing with out which he would have been utterly miserable a piano Bo I still thought tin, I tt,., I ... ..

The particular submarine on which my cor. respondents arrived, the E 15, had been caugnt in the Dardanelles, and Its crew and officers had been sent to the Turk Ish military prison at Aflum Kara llls sar in Asia Minor, when news of the alleged maltreatment of Turkish prls oners In Ecvnt was received. Int. were drawn among these prisoners to see wmcn two should i,e taken to Constan tinople and imprisoned In reprisal Stoker nnd Fitzgerald drew the un lucky numbers, and hud been lying In litis terrible underground cell fftr II days. I Immediately took the matter up with Enver and suggested that a neutral doctor anil officer examine the Turks In Egypt and report on the truth of tho stories. We prompt Iv received word that the report was false and that, as a mailer of ract. the Turkish prisoners In English hands were re ceiving excellent treatment. About this time I called on Mon signor Dole!, the apostolic delegate to Turkey. lie happened to refer to a Lieut. Fitzgerald, who. he said, was then a prisoner of war at Afiuni Kara Ilissar. i "I am much Interested In him," said Monslgnor Dolci. "because he is en caged to the daughter of the British minister to the Vatican. I spoke to Enver about him and he promised that ho would receive special treatment." "What Is his first name'.'" 1 asked. "Jeffrey.'; "lie's receiving 'sneclal treatment' indeed," 1 answered "Do you know that he Is In a dungeon In Constanti nople this very moment?" Naturally M. llolcl was much dia. turbed, bin I reassured him. saving thai his protege would be released III a lew days. , "ion see how shamefully you treated these young men," I now said to Enver, "you should do somethins to make amends." 'All right, what would you suggest?" Stoker and Kltzcerald wore nrlftnnera of war. and according to the usual rule. would have horn sent hack to the prison camp after being released from their dungeon. 1 now proposed that I. liver should give Ihcin a vacation of eight days In Constantinople. He en tered Into the spirit of the occasion and the" men were released. They certainly presented a sorry sight; they hail spent -ii days in the dungeon, with tin chance to bathe or to shave, with noschange 'i linen or any of the decencies of life But 1r. Philip took charge, furnished them the necessaries, and in a brief period we had before us two voune and handsome British naval officers. Their light days' freedom turned' out to be a triumphal procession, notwithstanding that they were always accompanied by mi English-speaking Turkish officer, .Monslgnor Dolci and the American em bassy entertained them at dinner and they had a pleasant visit at the dirts' college, When the time came to re turn to their prison camp lite young men declared that they would be glad to spend another month in dungeon. If thaV could have a corresponding period of freedom in the city when liberated. In spite of all that has happened I shall always have a kindly feeling to ward Enver for hi treatment of Pits gerald. I told the minister of war about the lieutenant's engagement "Don't you think he'shoen punished enough?" I asked. "Why don't you let the hoy go home and marry Ills sweet heart?'' Tho proposition Immediately appealed to Enver's sentimental side i ll do It." he replied, "If he will give me hi:' word of honor not o fight against Turkey any more."
