Application was made to the em

The ambassadors, prior to this, had
asked the porte to graut permission
to each of the great powers to send
one warship through the Dradanelles,
and this request had been complied
with. The only guarantee of safety
for the native Christians, and perhaps
foreigners, In Constantinople, Is to be
found in the presence bf the warships

the Turkish capital.

patched to the Turkish ports, will be
i Bent through the Dradanelles by each
