Constantinople, Aug. IS. Four I
Greeks, prominent men In their cits- j
trlct, havo been murdered near Mon-1
astir, their bodies cut in pieces nnd
hung on irees. As a result the pros-1
Ident of tho Macedonian Greeks lias
appealed to the porto to Issue rifles to
the Greeks for protection. I
The claim that these Greeks havo
been murdered by Macedonians re-J
reives little credence among tho for-!
elgners in Constantinople who recog-1
nlze only a bare possibility of such a I
thing being true. They unanimously I
hold that the probabilities are that se- j
cret emissaries of tho Turi.sh gov- j
eminent committed tho outrago to in-1
crease the hatred nnd distrust of tho j
Macedonians for tho Greeks who aro
their natural allies. It Is an open i
secret that ot all the complications
which beset the sultnn ono of his most
persistent fears Is of n Macedo-Greek
alliance. Tho policy of tho Turkish
government for several years has
been to foment distrust and enmity
between Macedonia and Greece and
tho policy has been singularly suc
cessful In many Instances. It can be
depended upon that no arms will lie
Issued to Macedonians for "protec
tion against Greeks" except to prede
termined ones who aro moro or less
open sympathizers with or allies of

Vienna Is Alarmed.
Vienna, Aug. Is. That the ofllclals
recognize the gravity of tho Balkan
situation is shown by tho fact that tho
foreign war offices aro open all night
awaiting dispatches from tho disturb
ed districts of Western Turkey. The
calm nnd utterly Imperturbable de
meanor of Emperor Joseph Is attrib
uted by his admirers to a ierfoct un
derstanding of the situation; by his
critics to a failure to appreciate the
gravity of tho situation. If tho first
hypothesis Is correct ho forsees an
enily ending to an "insurrection"
which will prove to be a mere politi
cal effervescence. If the latter is cor
rect it Indicates that his majesty Is
afflicted with. Incipient paresis. The
foreign element particularly the

Inclined to believe the latter construc

Twenty-four battalions of troops have
