Only Quarter of Population In Seres
After Two Years' Occupation.
When Seres, In Greek Macedonia,
was occupied by the Bulgarians in De
cember, 1916, the inhabitants num
bered 24,000. Since that time 5,000 of
these have died. 11,000 have been de
ported, and 2,000 men and boys have
been put to work on the construction
of roads. Today the population Is be
tween 5,000 and <1,000.
Bulgarian documents which have
been found in the Macedonian towns
show that large numbers of deaths
were due to the indifference of the
Bulgarian authorities to the condition
of the civilian population. Wholesale
deportations were made and cruelties
Inflicted which were not justified by
the necessities of war. Not only were
the military authorities Involved In
this work, but the civil officers were
tyrannous toward the people.

houses were stripped of their furni
