GERMAN RULE IN TURKEY.

HOSTILE FEELING TOWARDS ENGLAND. Mr Pcopadopulos a Greek, who was till leccillv a diaper in Constantinople, was interviewed at Fremantle on the 19th hist, on his arrival by the. R.M.S. Maiwn. When Turkey commenced to mobilise during tho Balkan War,” he said, 1 all Christians were ordered to go to tho front. Those who did not want to fight for the ’l urks could get out of it by paying a tine equivalent to £45. I paid this fine willingly. and dvl not go to the front. 1 found out that whenever lin key runs short of money .‘ho commences to mobilise, and Christians have to pay through the mose. Some weeks ago she commenced to mobilise against the Allies, and I thought it was about timo to go, so I collected what belongings 1 could, and aero I am on mv way to Now Zealand, where I hope they will not mobilise- too often, I left mv" business in the hands of a solicitor, arid hope I will ho able to realise something oh it. The feeling in Turkey is intensely German. Tho Young Turkey party, which" is by far the strongest in that country, is solid for Germany. It is hard to say liow ma ny German officers there aio_ in Turkey, but I know that there are 1,500 In Constantinople alone. General J.email Tor Sanders, who Is a Gorman, is the military chief in Constantinople, and he is really the uncrowned King of Turkey. '1 he 'Turk;: have given him the title of Pasha. Tho whole place is German, and the officers belonging to that country are now wearing headgear similar to the Turkish fez. Turkish feeling is particularly directed against England, despite tho fact that tho Turks must know that Russia would like the Dardanelles. I have heard that the bitterness against England has been caused by that country seizing two Dreadnoughts which had been built for the Turkish siavy. and which were ready when war was commenced. Another reason for the bitterness against England is tho feeling in Turkey that tho entry of the former country into the war has decided the issue against Germany. Turkey has great hopes that eho will'bring about a religions war.”
