                          LONDON, Saturday.
   The  correspondent of  "The Times"
at   Constantinople   says    that   the
Turkish  Nationalists have  massacred
hundreds   of  Greeks   and Armenian
civilians in Asia Minor.
   There have been no  provocation to
occasion  the  crimes.  The conduct of
the Greek troops had been  exemplary
hitherto,  but  it   will   be  difficult   to
restrain   them if they  find  more  but-
chered Christians.
    The  British  Government is blamed
for dilatoriness  in  trying  the  Tur(k)s
who are  interned  at  Malta,  charged
with   complicity  in  massacres.   The
atrocities,  it  seems  have been invari-
ably authorised  by those in the high--
er positions. So far,  only  one of the
prisoners has  been  hanged, but if a
few of the   higher  authorities  knew
that they risked their  necks  the mas-
sacres would probably cease.
