like Germany, take the bloody hand of the Turk,
forgive him and decorate him, as Kaiser Wilhelm
has done, with the highest orders ? Will the
outrageous terrorising, the cruel torturing, the
driving of women into the harems, the de-
bauchery of innocent girls, the sale of many of
them at eighty cents each, the murdering of
hundreds of thousands and the deportation to, and
starvation in, the deserts of other hundreds of
thousands, the destruction of hundreds of villages
* and cities, will the wilful execution of this whole
devilish scheme to annihilate the Armenian, Greek
and Syrian Christians of Turkey-will all this go
unpunished?   Will the Turks be permitted, aye,
even encouraged, by our cowardice in not striking
back, to continue to treat all Christians in their
power as " unbelieving dogs"?  Or will definite
steps be promptly taken to rescue permanently
the remnants of these fine, old, civilised, Christian
people from the fangs of the Turk ?
