Americans Report Appalling Situation in Refugees' Stampede.

 

CONSTANTINOPLE, Sept. 14, (Associated Press). -American subchaser No. 96 has arrived here with reports of the appalling situation at Mudania, on the Sea of Marmora, where the harbort is filled with the bodies of refugees who stampeded when the last vessel departed before the Turkish occupation.
