Constantinople, June 11. A strict censorship has been imposed on all telegrams. The Turks are harassing Greek residents in the Dardanelles and on the Anatolian coast. Thousands of Greeks have fled, and much of their property has been sold at a sacrifice or destroyed.  Moslems broached and destroyed the wines and spirits in a Greek village on the Dardanelles.  It is reported that 90,000 refugees have reached Salonika from Thrace.
