Following Report from Constantinople, Benedict XV. Writes to the Porte


The Cologne Gazette Says England is Trying to Divert Attention from "Invasion" of Greece

OCTOBER 11, 1915

ROME,Oct. 10.--Mgr. Dolci, the Apostolic Delegate at Constantinople, having report to the Holy See on the sufferings of the Armenians, Pope Benedict has written an autograph letter to the Sultan of Turkey interceding for the unfortunate people.

BERLIN, Oct. 10, (by Wireless to Tuckerton, N. J.).--"The Cologne Gazette refers to the accusations of Lord Cromer and the Marquis of Crewe in the House of Lords that German Consular officials encouraged the Turkish population to attack Armenians," says the Overseas New Agency. "The newspaper states that the purpose of these unfounded assertions is easy to comprehend. England wishes to divert the attention of neutrals from the violation of Greek neutrality, and since the Belgian question is no longer novel enough, turns to new accusations."
