A PLEA FOR JUSTICE.

I'r is on: of the st~ongest proofs of the iuherentjustice .of the BntJsh natron that one need never apologise for stating facts. 'Much h:1S been written on I h,~ unhappy state of affairs in Macedonia f1Jldi t wer. need] ess tl , enter here into an exhaustive examination of M:le situation. 1'11e object of this pamphlet is rather to supplemenl",the in].fol'mn.tiori already placed at the disposal of tlLe general Br/t,ish public by the press, tmcVi:i1Sel by independent \.vriters.i 'I'he aspect of the l\'[aceamlHLll question wb,~.Qh has _mtl,,~pealecl to the English people is the greet! dl,~f:jlCe oJ;~i~e, C1'PP>}l'<:mtly to no purpose. "\\, osk after week ;vtrocity hflii:followed upon a,trllcity until the list (if victims ""has gt~;\m to appl1lling diwens,i,111l';. .Few in :b~llglalld have remained unmoved by 'these tales of horror. rarely does the cry of t.1.10Se who are believed to be 110wn trodden [[.11(1 oppressed fail to touch a sYlTlpafthetic cborcfin the breasts. of Englishmen. The feeling of pit.l tba~ li,:,es. should be thns sacrificed has only b.een equalled by tho indignation expressed D{;[1Il1st the perpetrators of th« outrages and crimes. Both feelings are legitimate; both in keeping with the. traditional justics of the British people. Unfortunately, however, when public passion 11a,8 been aroused, as it has been on this question in England recently, the line of demarcation between prej udice arid sound ,jndgluent- is a,pt to be blurred, awl in many casea obli teratec1.

Turkey has bElen bitterly condemned by the press and pul pi t, for the excesses of i ts soldiers in Macedonia, Making

'.'

t)

every allowance [or exa.g,gemtion, the Turkish irregular troops have been guilty of needlessly cruel methods in attempting to quell the revolution in that part of the Sultan's dominions, and it is neeessary that the voice of the civilised world should be raised in dsnunciation. But it is also necesst1ry that oivilisa.tiorr's standard of morality and humanity should be applied all round. Let us at least be consistent. ,Vhat is cruel and criminal in a Mussulman cannot be righteous and just in a Cbristian. Yet we are not by any means free Irorn reproach .in this respect, Atrocities quite :1S brut-al as ever disfigured the history of civilisation have been committed by those who are posing as the saviours, of Macedonia ..

Details are given in this pampblet of no fewer than 22\1 murders and outrages which the BulgaLptl bands have perpetrated against the Greek community of Mona~tir and Salonika, the two viJlL}:etS of which Macedonia E,roperSonsists. Every care has been exercised in compiling lld·~reeord. The particnlars in each case have been verified. and no outrage is included which has not been directly and unquestionably traced to the Bulgarian insurrectiofrists. The atrocities herein enumerated extend oyer' a period of between five and six years. The list is complete only up till last February, although one or t~GrirlJes that-occurred in March and April are included. l\Iqmy massacres of Greek residents have taken place since February, but some time must elapse before all the details Ci:~JJ be fully verified owing to the unsettled condition of the country. But the list is surely sufficiently ghastly to induce those in this country who are, if not actually encouraging, certainly showing open sympathy with the insurrectionists in Macedonia, to pause and ask ther.nselves whether outrages of this kind, committed in the sacred name of liberty, ought to be condoned. So far the voice of civilisation seemingly has been spent in shouting down the Turk. Greece has stood almost alone t1l1long the nations in contending that the, insurrectionists are not the friends, but the enemies, of the.

On tl18 coutrnrv, it has been repudiated by t.he vast majority of the resident population, a repudiation which lias cost (LlFlUV of theul their lives at the hands of t.he ]3ulg:l.Li~111 brigands, \v-hu::oe actions a.ll have been opposed to i.hs true Cf1llS('fif tbe Macedoaian .people-the cause of reform and better gCJ\,,{rlllJem.

EVen}1rl'lOllg t,beir own countrymen the brigands secure support only tho exerciae of t.he worst forms of coercion. It is, therefore, a misreprescnta.tion of the facts to S:1Y that the people of Macedonia, are in rebellion,

'The important point to be borne in mind is that these Bulgarian bands are not acting in the best inberests of t.be Macedonian people. Their progr:unme is to create disorder by their acts of brigandage-disorder that will be presented to Europe as the result of local discontent.

It will be seen from the details which follow that no class

of the Greek community h~LS escaped the persecution. The victims range in social position frorn the peasant to the laudowner and tb e merchant A number of priests are also amongst the murdered. \'Thole families have been exterminated in ... orne cases, au.I women and children have not escaped the ferocity of the ruffians. .POl' Ute majority of the crimes no reason has ever been suggested. Some of the victims were accused of denouncing the perpetrators of the (ll1tr;]'ges, and others incurred I;be hatred of t.he izzsurreotionists by refusi_ng either to join the bands or give monetary a.ssistance, but most of those who bave suffered death were the innocent victims of a campaign which is being waged neither inthe interests of jilstit.:e nor of liberty, The Maccdonian people ,11'e deserviug of ,.tIl the sylJ.lp~tILty [mel all the support which Bngland can " .. {e theru, but let us discrinrina.ta blo,'ttvelCD the fr,'fWd L1lent" ::1'1(1 ,th !P'rE) a.l, or l}er\\'isr:Y' OHr protest resolutions D.u.l)-l 01]1' ];lity may IW doing mule harm

VILA YET OF SALONIKA.

The vila,yet of SaJonilm, which includes the d8part.merits of Serres and Drama, has a·. population of nearly a million people. Over tour hundred thousand of them arc :'Ilussu.lmans· Greeks and Bulga,rians account for over half a million in the proportion shown above, and the remainder 1Ht~ of various nationalities, sixty thousand being Jews. In t.his vilayet ninety-five crimes of a serious nature against the GLe(':k population have been traced to the BulgaricUl rmDCle~ Sevtuty-nilH" of the victims were murdered in cold blood!, arid the number included five wornen. The lives of sixtt~en OIlL.\:lrS, one 11 woman, were attempted. The list includes twelve nota,LLQs or lec1c1ing men of as many di,stricLs, the same number oIlanc1- owners, eight clergym,m, a clergYlnan's son, two Lllo;cLre:tl n.)(~n, a schoolmaster, ,L schoolmistress, merchants, farmers, groeers, shepherds, labourers, and six young people under the age or eighteen. It will therefore be seE>r1 that no class of the cornmun ity has escaped, and the sufferings which these outrages have inflicted upon the homes of high and low amongst hl~beedonian {j-reeks is incalculable. One of th(-) most p~the.qc cas~s is th~t of the Sara~nantos family of Eabi:1Di. ~IemiJ,rs ~f one of th~ B111ganan b~nds entered Costas SarmlJ_....l'l'ntos house and, without explanation or reason gIven, murdered Costas and his wife in the presence of t.heir sou Nicolas, and also put to death a nephew of the old man and the nephew's wife. Nicolas was spared only because the murderers required him to take a lnessage to the briga,ncls' camp. In another C[LSe five members of a Iarnily were not only massacred, but. their bodies were mutilated in s uch ,1 \\'<".1' as to suggest that savages had run amok. A mother and her four children living at Matsicovo were the victims. 'I'hey were believed to have given certain information aga.inst the atroci ty-

7

mongers, who revenged themselves in this horrible manner. At Chouma three fanners who had informed the authorities of 'Crimes committed by the bands were also put to death. A number of the other outn,ges followed upon refusals to hand over sums of money demanded by the bands, One old man, eighty yen,rs of age, was attacked while in bed and succumbed to the terrible injuries which were inflicted upon him by the .Bulgarian brigands. Some 01' the murders were the acts of members of the Bulgarian Committee. Christos Doitzinis, one of 1\Iatsicov·o's leading men, met his death at the hands of members of the Commibt.es, who lay in ambush for him on the road leading to Gevgeli and shot him de~1CL Priest PapaStephanos, of Myraftza, was tortured l)e·fore be received bis fa.tal wound, and in another c~l'e ~1 priest named ]Jelios of Schovo has had three attempts IllJdeJCon his life.
