MUDANIA, Oct. 10. (By the
Associated Press.) The armistice
convention was signed here tonight
at 11 o'clock. The representatives
of all the powers concerned affixed
their signatures to the revised
protocol, which General Harington
had nresented for acceptance to
Ismet Pasha and which the nation
alist delegates forwarded to the
Angora government for its decision
General Harington had informed
Ismet Pasha that the convention
embodied Great Britain's last word
and that the other powers gave

On his part, Ismet had replied
that he hoped his government would

The Turkish delegates were some

over the turn of events in the past
two days. The new attitude taken;
by France after the Paris confer- j

which they counted as a main prop
in the negotiations, did not yield
the results they expected.
DittaatlMfaction Is Tolled.
At the session of the conference
Monday night, Ismet Pasha ex
pressed dissatisfaction at the terms
the allies offered.
He said to General Harington:
"But your new armistice convention
is in contradiction to the assurances
given to me by General Charpy.
"The convention instead of paving
the way for peace only makes
matters worse. .
General Harington replied merely:
'General Charpy has assented to the
French Held Responsible.
After the close of the formal pro
ceedings, Ismet in the course of a
conversation on the recurring sub
ject of France's promises, said: It
was upon France's suggestion that
our army ceased operations against
the Greeks, France promising us
favorable armistice terms. France's
responsibility, therefore, is con
siderable. "If no agreement is reached, Our
army will insist on marching into

by all the allies, which, as Lieuten- j

would give to the Turks their aims

The convention, consisting of 14
clauses, was drawn on liberal lines,
showing strongly traces of French
influence on the side of the Kem

and complete the transfer to the
