ROME. Oct. 1L There Is a feeling
in official circles here that Turkey and
her sympathizers, as well as those ele
ments that are antagonistic to Italy,
are doing everything possible to en
gender opposition to Italy's plans
among the powers, and it Is believed
that certain reports that have been cir
culated are expected to cause Anglo-
The report also has been spread that
Germany attempted to obtain Torbruk
from Turkey prior to the beginning of .
These reoorts are offlolaiiv H.nu
by Italy. It is pointed out by Italian '
officials that Germany has never taken
any step in such a direction in tha
past and has no Intention of asking
anything from Italy in the future,
while It Is also said that Italy would
not dream of being a catspaw to draw
chestnuts from the fire for Germany,
notwithstanding the alliance.
Xo Interference Contemplated.
In connection with this denial. It is
said the entire situation is unchanged.
that th powers do not oppose Italy's
action, and that they have no intention
of intervening until Italian dominion
in Tripoli is indisputable.
Advices from Tripoli, sent by Rear-
Admiral Boread d'Olmo, the Governor,
and Captain Cagni, the commandant
say that the sailors now in possession
of the city have given ' remarkable
proof of their powers of resistance and
It is believed that - the Turkish
troops are thoroughly disheartened, as
otherwise, being only one day's march:
from : Tripoli and twice outnumbering
the Italians, they might "hare attempt
ed to recapture the place, or at least
have Inflicted serious losses. -
Italians Hailed u Liberators.
It is now too late for the Turks to do
so, as the first section of the troops
of the expedition have landed and
great preparations were made to wel
come the Italian soldiers as the liber
ators of Tripoli from the Turkish yoke
for all time.
The Ministry of Public Works here
Is already preparing a, plan to revlva
the commerce and Industry of Tripoli. ! .
At tho same time the War Office is
studying the organization -of the per-!
manent body of colonial troops whlchr .
Italy will require when the war Is
ended. It is figured that 10,000 men'
will be needed to garrison Tripoli and
7000 more to protect Etritrea, the.
Italian colony on tho Red Sea, and Soi
mallland, the Italian protectorate on
the Indian Ocean. I
Hassurd Karamanll is now Mayor of
Tripoli by decree of King Victor Em-;
manuel. He sent a message of loyalty;
and devotion to the Italian sovereign:
and the communication was also signed'
by other notables of Tripoli. It ex-i
pressed their satisfaction at the Ital-
lan occupation of Tripoli, which, they'
said, represented tha resurrection of.
their beloved country, which aspired to
be once more, as at the time- of tha.
Romans.' a source of prosperity and
pride for the metropolis. I
All the wireless messages received
by the government contain the Infoi-i

proceeding satisfactorily. '
Slavery Reported Active.
While the Turkish embassies deny,
the existence. of slavery in Tripoli, for,
the reason as they set forth that the).
Ottoman empire was a signatory to th'
anti-slavery convention at Brussels,'
Italian officials declare that notwith-:
standing the denial, the fact remain'
that Tripoli, up to two weeks ago, wa ,
the only outlet of the great slave mar-:
ket of Central Africa, which the Ital-'
lans promise to abolish.
Slavery, they point out, had always
