In Asia Minor. Ho says:
'"Things have arrived at a crisis.
Tho United States must either Insist
upon tho Porto listening to its repre
sentatives regarding American con
verts or drop tho missionaries alto
gether. Tho latter courso Is natur
ally Impossible, and tho Bonding of a
squadron has great significance as
showing a determination on tho part
of America to tako an nctlvo part In
tho Turkish question.
"Ono result or this stop will prob
ably bo to Induce tho Sultan to raise
his representative at Washington to
tho rank of ambassador so that tho
United States can bo equally repre
sented here. At present, America is
at a disadvantage In this respect com
pared with tho other first-class pow
ers. "Nobody can qulto foroseo tho ulti
mate attltudo of tho United States,
but It Is almost certain that her
weight will incline on tho side of the
Christian against tho Turk. At tho
samo time, as a mattor of importance
to Great Britain, America is almost
bound to opposo the descent of Russia
on tho Dardanelles, bciauso In rollg
toua matters tho Turk Is moro toler
ant than the Russian."
