Washington, Oc*.. 16.-With the Berlin-Const.tntinople railroad cut by the allied occupation of Nistt. Germany is relying upon its Black Sen fleet to keep Turkey in line. Information has been received at the state department that the Turkish government has been informed by Berlin the fleet will open fire on the Ottoman capital nt the first sign of defection. The fleet consists largely of the warships captured from the Russians, but It is believed here to be strong enough to bold the Turkish government. It was pointed out today that with the British forces rapidly clearing Palestine and Mesopotamia of Turkish control, Turkey muKt hang on to Con& its only hope of maintaining any power as a government. News from Copenhagen that lz-zet Pasha has been appointed premier and minister of war in the new Turkish cabinet was interpreted as meaning, that the Germans still have a friend at court. Because of his long service tfs chief of tho Turkish army and his association with German officers Iwet Pasha is looked upon as friendly to Germany. The accuracy of the reports that the Union and Conservative club the most powerful organization in Turk'y, has been closed at the demand of the Turkish army staff was questioned by officials here who said such action would be tantamount of a military revolution. If the report Is true, they declared, anything might happen to Constantinople. Expect Turkey to Quit Amsterdam, r,ia or cause any explosions. * Former t.etlil>ridgc C.l'.K.
