Patriarch is Grateful for Benedict XV.'s Plea to the Sultan

OCTOBER 21,1915

Special Cable to THE NEW YORK TIMES. ROME, Oct. 20.--the news that the Patriarch of the Armenians had thanked the pope for his intervention in favor of the Armenians in Turkey was received here with great satisfaction, as it was thought that had the Papal remonstrance to the Sultan had no effect the Patriarch would have kept silence.

The agitation in favor of the Armenians has not ceased, however, as the people hare have had too much experience with Turkish promises to believe the danger of outrages over.

The plan of an Armenian Captain to organize a corps of his countrymen from all countries to flight the Turks was received with enthusiasm hare, and he would have no difficulty in getting volunteers among the Armenians in Italy.
