TURKS IN EUROPE. [Newspaper Article] — Ashburton Guardian — 26 February 1920
TURKS IN EUROPE. LORD BRYCE'S CRITICISM (Received February 26, 10.30 a.m.) (&quot;United Service.) LONDON, February 22. Lord Bryce, in an indignant article in the &quot;Observer,&quot; deals historically with Turkish misrule barbarities, and broken promises of reform, extending over eighty years. He declares that permission to the Sultan to remain at Constantinople disgraces the victorious Allies. They have yet time to retract. It is untrue that the Moslems regard the city as sacred. The idea that the expulsion of the Sultan would offend a considerable section of India is grossly exaggerated. The real truth is that Constantinople has serred for many centuries as the focus of intrigue and corruption, in which the seoundrelism of two continents accumulated. It will continue the same under any form .of Turkish occupation.
PRESS COMMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Ashburton Guardian — 26 February 1920
PRESS COMMENTS. (Received February 26, 3 p.m.) LONDON, February 25. &quot;The Times,&quot; in a leader, says: The Government have committed themselves perhaps irrevocably to a revision of the national war policy as regarda Turkey, without consulting Parliament, and are now attempting to buttress the decision by making play on Indian Moslem feeling. We respect the Moslem religious sentiment, but the Moslem is not entitled to dictate the policy of the Empire. Regarding the Russian position, &quot;The Times&quot; accuses Mr Lloyd George for his own purposes of throwing reluctant Europe into the arms of the Bolshevik seducer. The &quot;Daily Mail&quot; describes the Allies' decision in regard to Russia as a 'half-peace of trade, but not diplomacy. &quot;The &quot;Daily Express&quot; likens it to dancing on eggs.

RAND DISPUTE. POSITION IMPROVING. (Rceeived February 26, 3 p.m.) CAPETOWN, February 25. The strike amongst the natives em-] ployed in the Johannesburg mines has ! caused much native unrest, including a demand by the native 'house and shop boys for increased wages. !

The Select Committee on the Taxation of War 'Fortunes has opened its investigation under the chairmanship of Sir -William Pearce. The principal witness was Sir JohiV Anderson, chairman of the Board of Inland ■■Revenue, who estimated that the cost of the-, scheme would be onetenth to one-fifth of. 1 per cent, of the amount collected.'

He suggested that provi-. sion bo made for payments by instal-' ments, the liability being assessed at 1 the outset and the payments spread over 10 years. He thought the valuation would affect 540,000 persons, but many individuals would have several valuations on ships, furniture, jewels, instates, etc. Ho further suggested consideration i of :some form of &quot;floating charge,&quot;' which would sufficiently safegua...
