CONSTANTINOPLE, Monday. There are trustworthy reports of
appalling massacres by Turkish irregulars coming from districts in Thrace,
which the Turks are re-occupying. It is said that the country about Mala-
gara [Malkara] has been converted into a human slaughterhouse, and the Turks are
wreaking a direful vengeance on Christian villages, which the Bulgars spared.
The Porte has issued strict orders to the officers to avoid reprisals.
