ONLY 200,000 ARMENIANS NOW LEFT IN TURKEY
More Than 1,000,000 Killed, Enslaved or Exiled, Says a Tiflis Paper
TIFLIS, Transcaucasia, Oct. 19 (via Petrograd and London, Oct. 21).---The estimate is made by the Armenian newspaper Mshak that of the 1,200,000 Armenian inhabitants of Turkey before the war there remain not more than 200,000. This residue, the Mshak says, may disappear before the end of the war, on account of the Turkish policy of extermination.
The figures of the Mshak are based on the estimate of the Armenian Patriarch at Constantinople that 850,000 Armenians have been killed or enslaved by the Turks, in addition to which 200,000 Armenians are believed to have fled to Russia.
