GREECE AND TURKEY NEAR BREAKING POINT

MANY MURDERS OF GREEK SUBJECTS AND CONFISCATION OF PROPERTY OF OTHERS IS ALLEGED

THE NEW YORK TIMES

9 Jan 1915

LONDON, JAN. 9 - A long official dispatch from Athens , received in London today, states that a number of Greeks have been murdered by Turkish bandits, and asserts that the Turkish authorities are making no effort to arrest the bandits.

A private dispatch states that Christians are being persecuted by Turkish authorities, who are making requisitions on landowners, compelling them to give up large portions of their property.  These requisitions, the dispatch says, amount to confiscation, since no money is paid in return and no receipts are given.
