I v TURKS FIGHT FOR RIGHT TO EXIST; SAYS ENVER PASHA Wax Minister, 33 DecmrcS People Wll Prove They Are Not Ethnological Carcass. By Associated Press. CONSTANTINOPLE. April 18. via London, April 20. "I am glad you asked that question. This not a war of the Turkish Government, but of the Turklsn people," said Enver Pasha, the most remarkable man in Turkey, who is, at the age of 33 years, War Minister and Generalissimo of the Ottoman army, to the Associated Press correspondent in the r.rst Interview ever given to the American press. "Undoubtedly the world finds difficulty in understanding that the Turkey of today Is no longer the Turkey of the past, but that, nevertheless, is a fact which thould be apparent to all Impartial observers," he continued, showing meanwhile the enthusiasm of youth, although it was almost in a nhamefaced manner that he admitted his light burden of years. Handsomest Man In Army. The world's youngest commander In chief typifies the young Turks In intellectual attainments and ideals. The conversation with him was carried on in German, and, besides having a thorough command of the German language, he speaks excellent French. Enver Pasha would be boyish In appearance but for a rather heavy brown mustache. Alert, frank eyes and pleasing manners make him a delightful conversationalist. He has, moreover, a well-deserved reputation for being the handsomest man in the Turkish army. When the corre-fcpondent entered. Enver Pasha shook hands cordially and said: "I am sorry to have kept you waiting, but I am very busy today. You have come to interview. Well, I will make an f-xception in your favor. I am averse to talking to men of the press. What do you want?" "The exact reasons for Turkey participating in the war," was the reply. "You refer, no doubt," said Enver Pasha, "to the assertions In the newspapers of Great Britain. France and Russia that Turkey entered the war to help Germany. That is very true at this moment, not when we mobilized. Today Austria-Hungary and Germany help us; we help them. But we mobilized because there was no way out. "Long before we took this step Russia had grown ugly on the Black tea. and In the Caucasus, invading territory there, while England already had operated against Mesopotomia and had concentrated a fleet before the Dardanelles. We were unwilling to start the hall rolling, and even after the Russians attacked our fleet In the Black Sea, we still waited one week before war was declared. "Have a Right to Exist." "We knew that Turkey would again be led to the slaughter block. Being unwilling that this should happen, we took the only course open. We Turks feel that we have a right to exist, especially when the best of us are straining every effort and are catching up with other countries In Intellectual and material development. I believe that tl.ere Is much good in the Turkish people, contrary to what our traducers say. At any rate, we are about to prove it. "There was a time when Turkey was merely a Government clique which was not trusted by the people, but gradually the people are beginning to feel that they themselves are Turkey. I think that this is the healthiest sign here today, and there also is the promise that the progress of all civil life will be rapid." At this moment the War Minister's chief of staff entered with papers. When ihese were disposed of the interview was continued. "We are taking care of our troops today," said Enver Pasha; "hence their loyalty. Formerly a man was given a rifle and had to shift for himself as best he could; today we see that his land is cultivated in his absence. Each village has this system while a man Is at the front his neighbors till his soil. "This measure . has been so effective that the area of cultivated land is 20 per cent greater than ordinary. When a man ia in the field we see that he is cared for. simply perhaps but sufficiently. The Turkish soldier, moreover, now knows how to shoot well; this is instlll-inr the confidence he formerly lacked." To the question as to what was responsible for the better quality of troops, which has been apparent, Enver Pasha replied: "When I reached the head of the army I discharged on my second day In office about 3000 old officers who had formerly been merely a burden on the Ottoman military establishment Next, I made every effort to have the common soldier feel that he was part of the service, instead of the subject of it. I can hardly believe the difference) this made. The men now have an esprit de corps." "How did you manago to mobilize your army of almost 2.000,000 with limited resources?" he was asked. . "That was a problem, of course, but we overcame It. He had a lot of old Snider rifles ready for ths Junk market. These I caused to be distributed among the gendarmerie, taking from them their modern rifles. There was formerly a targe gendarmerie force in Turkey," explained Enver Pasha, emillng; "now It is not so great we don't need it. So, we armed many men with new rifles. Today every man at the front is well armed. It was a case of helping yourself ; we did It" Hmre Task la Dardanelles. Replying to questions as to ths present status of the campaign, the Generalissimo said: dondltlons in ths Caucasus are mow satisfactory. Regarding the situation In tie Pardanelles, I will say we are full5 confident that it has been demon-stri, sd that fighting down the forts thej will be a huge task for the allies. Buf ven should that happen, we would st' !e masters of the situation there ans of howiUsrs, mines and & which is not so Inconsiderable ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH as soma think. The allies, coming up the straits, would be obliged to move in single file, and the effectiveness of our protective measures should be apparent" In view of the fact that some excitement has been observed in Turkey because of the export of arms and ammunition from the United States to the Powers of the Triple Entente, particularly Russia, Enver Pasha was asked for his views on this subject, and replied: "Hps imU-f has occupied us for some taosa ssi tk populace but you may have noticed that there has been no anti-American outbreak on that account. Since the elimination of the capitulations this was the first situation in which the Turkish people might express resentment In a drastic way, but our people realize that this traffic in favor of a few manufacturers Is n"t the fault of those Americans living here and therefore our old good relations continue. "We are not savages who hold the Innocent responsible for something not their fault. There are still living in this city under the nominal protection of your embassy plenty of English and French. They have not been molested, despite the fact that our own people have not been treated kindly in France and England. Young Turkey is ready to demonstrate that no particular group holds a monopoly on gentlemanllness, and so we shall continue taking the best care of everybody, no matter what the provocation. "When the capitulations were abolished, everybody thought that foreigners in Turkey were unsafe, but time has shown that foreigners were never safer, as you must have observed. But the export of arms and ammunition from the United States to the Entente Powers can have but one result useless killing. Turkey, like Germany and Austria-Hungary, is determined to win this war, and there is every indication that we will." Speaking of Turkey after the war, Enver Pasha said: "Turkey will emerge from this war truly united and stronger than ever. The war is popular with the people now because it has given the Government an opportunity to demonstrate that it take3 an interest in the people and is for the people. More Men Than Vrrdnl. "Not wishing to show favors, we called everybody able to serve to arms, with the result that we got more than we needed. Many of the surplus men are now building roads everywhere, even railroads. During the last month we completed 15 kilometers (12 miles)," In Anatolia, and during the last - three months 40 kilometer, so constructed, were given over to traffic. In Syria also we have built a line toward the Suez Canal. "In addition, the war has brought together, under a superior class of officers, 2,000,000 men, and the . schooling given them ia bound to result in good. We are fostering the spirit here that one must work for others also and that the old era of 'devil take the hindmost' is over." : The War Minister, commenting on the work of the Associated Press correspondents in Turkey, said it has been straightforward, conditions having been described as they were, and added that he had given orders that the correspond ent be permitted to go anywhere. "We have no secrets," he said. "Describe everything you see. Though cur experience with some newspapers has been sad, we are willing to trust those who do not require their :orrespi indents to lie for them. What I have sn'd will possibly have no influence; that Is the reason why, so far, I have refused to be interviewed.'' The correspondent ventured the opinion that everything has some influence, replying to which Enver Pasha said. "God grant it will. We Turks have long been denied a fair hearing before the public. We are so used to slander that we are now willing to convince the world with arms that we are not the ethnological carcass some claim." Receives Many Leaders. The interview with the War Minister took place In the War Department Building, which presented an extremely busy scene. Before the turn of the correspondent came, many others saw the Minister, among them Turkish leaders from all parts' of the empire. Arabs, Persians and Indians, most of them in European dress, waited for hours to see the young man, who guides the military and to some extent the political fortunes of Turkey. The contrasts about the large and well-furnished antechamber were many. None was so striking, however, as when the Muezzin on the ministry minaret called the faithful to prayer and was answere the next minute by a concert rendered by a splendid military band, which played German marches and opera selections and ended with a weird Turkish air.

POST-DISPATCH DAILY RECORD OF MARKETS AND ROCK ISLAND IS FEATURE IN THE STOCK MARKET Issue Makes Wide Break on Receivership for the Old Company. By Leaned Wire From the New ork Bureau of the Poet-Dispatch. NEW YORK, April 20. The Evening Post, in its copyrighted financial review today, says: "The stock market was once more torn by conflicting forces and influences today, though of a somewhat different sort from yesterday's. One of these tendencies found expression in the high opening prices of nearly all the most active shares, followed by rapid advances of a point or thereabouts. The other was brought to a. head bv the news that receivers had been asked and granted for the old Rock Island Railway. "This news was unexpected, notwithstanding yesterday's 3-point break in the stock and debenture bonds, on exceptionally heavy trading, and the announcement therefore revived at once the realizing sales on the general market, with which the Stock Exchange closed yesterday. Declines to 1 to 3 points from the early high prices occurred in a good part of the list. During half the day the market was pulled backward and forward under these conflicting influences. Late Market Is Firm. "The Rock Island incident did not bear directly on the general situation, and this was no doubt the reason why the - rest of the market, in the later hours, seemed to break away from its influence, and renew the upward movement. It was left in some uncertainty just how the outside public would be affected by the news, and particularly by the 11-point fall in Rock Island shares. Such occurrences do not always contribute to the complacency of outsiders speculating on a margin. But the Wall street support which appeared in the market, around the lowest midday prices was aggressive. Itsucceeded in turning the general market sharply, so that the closing hours were characterized again by a violent upward movement, with trading on a large scale, and with the stocks which have led in the recent speculation goinar to prices higher than yesterday's closings. The market ended in an excited . rise, total transactions having again run well beyond 11,000,000 "It was reasonably clear that the course of prices in the next few days will depend on the outside public's view of the events of yesterday and today. The stock market has for several days presented a problem no longer economic or financial, but purely psychological. "Foreign exchange was most stationary. Rates on Berlin and Vienna ceased to reflect the 'peace talk; Austrian exchange went lower. Sterling was not much changed, though bankers reported active trading for future dates, which might have any one of several causes. Discount rates recovered of 1 Per cent at London, following the decline of . which had accompanied the introduction of the British Government's new policy of daily sales of exchequer bills." The Rook Island Question. "The very peculiar atmosphere which has surrounded all the proceedings of the Rock Island's management, in its attitude towards the railway property, which underlavs all their schemes, made it inevitable that today's sudden application tor receivers should be regarded with mingled feelings. "Observant Wall street became convinced many months ago, from the nature of the tactics pursued and the official statements made, that one of two things was true, either a great railway property, temporarily hard pressed, was being handled in its emergency with incredible stupidity, of a kind that would help to wreck the soundest property, or Bnm ulterior purpose, not dis cernible apart from the inner ring, must have been in mina. "Surrounding circumstances being what they are, every further step of the receivership maneuver should be watched with the utmost circumspection. That this whole unhappy episode was a typical heritage from the financial delirium of 13 years ago, everyone knows. But assurance is for that very reason needed urgently that we are not to witness a repetition of the Jay Gould finance of a still older period.

The rnttnn mar ket opened at a decline of 7 to 9 points louay. unaer ratner neavy wall street realizing, while there was also onni,lfr- able selling by houses with Liverpool and Southern connections. The continued good weather in the South and the relatively easv ruling of tho English market probably strengthened reactionary sentiment after the recent bio; auvanc-. out onenngs were very well takrn on a scale down, and after sho-w-lnsr a net loss of about 7 to 12 points prices steadied up 2 or 8 poitns on a renewal of support, which was encouraged by bu'l-lsh advices from the good trade and the larger sales reported in some of the Southern spot markets yesterdav. A flurry of Wall street liquidation carried prices off early in ihe afternoon and was attributed to unsettling conditions in the stock market, but the market again met a good demand at 10.70c for October and prices showed rallies of 3 or 4 piima nta-ard "1 o'clock. 1ie close was irregular. tipot cotton, steady; middling uplands, 10.45c.

An unusual accumulation of small-sized selling orders in the May delivery brought about a lightning-like overthrow of prices today for that option of wheat. As soon, however, as the little rush of selling had spent itself, the market for May quickly recovered and swung into lias -with other more active speculative deliveries which meanwhile had been only moderately Influenced by the weaanese of the old crop month. May. In a general way the chief bearish Influence came from vague ieace talk, and from Improved reports regarding the crop outlook in Southern Illinois. After opening unchanged to 7c lower, prices steadied at a range c to 2c under :art night's level. Corn declined with wheat. The volume of trade, though, was rather light. Opening prices, which varied from a c lower to a shade advance, were followed by a moderate setback all around. The sag In other grain affected oats but not to any radical extent. Buyers were scarce. Provisions gave wav on account of the break in cereals. Neve-theleas celling by longs did not assume more than a scattering chtirac tor Selling In cash houses on account of purchases to arrive here from the country tended later to make the wheat market recede. Hhe close was unsettled at c to Sc net decline. lter some inquiry from the seaboard helped to cause a rally in corn. The close was firm, c off to 4t,c up, compared with last night.

Trade lacked the snap of the last few days, however, as the May decline made buy. ers cautious, despite spot wheat prices in Liverpool firm and Id higher. Later the market sold off again on slack casb trade and favorable crop reports. Final prices wers lc to 3c. down, compared with yesterday's closing. Crop Expert B. W. Snow wao ut with a favorable corn weather report. It said: "My country agents report that spring work is decidedly more advanced than In an ordinary year and that the amount of plowins for corn alresdy completed Is much greater than usual. Conditions east of the Mississippi River are particularly well advanced, acreage already prepared not only large, but the season has been so favorable that ths ground has worked down into exceptionally good condition. Some corn planting has already begun and with the iand ready, as it now is, the full crop will be planted In a shorter space of time than usual, thus releasing farmers from their spring work earlier than usual. West of the Mississippi where thtre has been more "pring moisture, the season's progress Is about normal to date.
