Turkish Cabinet Sends Note to Powers Asking for Interven- tion and Intimating That a Serious Struggle Will Fol- low Unless They Cities September between France and Russia to intervene for a termination of the Turkish- Italian troubles is almost momentarily imminent according to officials of the foreign office today. The powers are alarmed over indications that the trouble may become a continental trouble. Seize Turkish Transport. September demonstrations in Italy against the Turkish war are Becoming formidable according to meg- sages smuggled across the frontier today.

Send Appeal to Powers Italian Squadron Has Gone to Intercept the Turkish Ships at Constantinople. Sept. cabinet today drafted an appeal to the ''frlendlyand humanitarian feeling of the t oprevent consum- mation o fthc Italian grab of Tripoli. The note will be sent to all powers. Leaders of the government do__not fry to disguise the embarrassment of the country's position as without a navy the army is powerless. The Uni- ted States has been asked to look after Ottoman interests in Italy. A grave danger in Turkey is that ot a reactionary uprising under rover of the excitement. The Moham- medan priesthood which has always hated young Turks are endeavor- ing to convince the masses that the present troubles are due to the new government. War Minister Chefket Pasha is hast- ening troops to all threatened coast points and although he cannot raise the blocadf. will certainly put a speedy end to landings on Turkish soil. Trukey it clear to all antions that she wonM not submit to losses i of territory without a fight. I Martial-law-has been j stantinople but an appeal i-sued foi the people to remain loyal.

The skirmishes are bel'oved pre- liminary to the general Greek cam- paign. Turkish troops are occupying Thessaly. Eesides attempting to take Crete from Greece the Turks are in their action by frightening Europe by a thraet of a wide spread Balkan outbreak intervening in the Italian trouble. The of such an out- break is great. Not only Turkey and Greece but Bulgaria might be involved in such a struggle. Other small coun- tries in that district would be drawn j in and Turkey knows the powers fear the result of such a struggle.

The Turks are hopelessly outclassed but Buckman undoubtedly give a good account of himself. A more or less effective blcckafie has been established by the ItaU ians of the western -Turkish cosst. An Italian cruiser went ashore to- day at Tripoli according to here. Two barges of Italian soldiers were sunk by Turkish ships in the seal They weie presumably trying to land on Moslum territory.

The government hoped by adopting that attitude that Italy would not the Tripolitans as a conquered people.

Every republican insurgent in con- gress has been importuned to be pres- and invitations extended to prom- inent progressives among them James R. Medill Mc- Gifford Rudolph Spreckles and Charles F.
