Dr. Oeconomos, the Modern Greek Lecturer at King's College, has

collected from the newspaper files the reports showing how the Kemalists systematically massacred the Christians in Eastern Anatolia, and how they continued the work in Smyrna and Eastern Thrace. It is a terrible story, and the million refugees in Greece, who have lost all rather than remain under Turkish rule, attest its truth. Dr. Oeconomos appeals to " the World's Conscience," but, now that Turcophilism is once more in fashion, we fear that he appeals in vain.
