Reuter's Constantinople correspondent wired on April 18: The Porte is doing
its utmost to rehabilitate itself in the eyes of the Western nations, and is
hoping still to influence the Peace Conference favorably to Turkey.
Arrests of officials of the Union regime who were implicated in the massacres
of the Armenians and Greeks are the order of the day. Several important arrests
have been made the last few days, including Abbas Halim Pasha (ex-Minister of
Public Works) and Ismail Kemal Bey (Governor of Sivias) who will be court martialled.
