the loan abroad. He said its issue In
America protected the market ftom

Herr Koch, president of the Imperial
bank, also approved the way the loan
was placed. He said he did not entet

circles here thai the American claims
arising from tlie Armenian massacres
"may lie regarded as practically set

building of a cruiser in the United
States, which lias been ofllcially pro

Harpoot (Khaiput) remains to be din
posed of. The l'orte Insists In Its re

however, cienteil by the presence of
