CRETE. latest Developments of the Situation. THE ATTITUDE OF GREECE. CONSTANTINOPLE, Tuesday.—An exchange of news is at present proceeding among the Cabinets Upon certain proposals for the re-establishment of Dtder in Crete. The present attitude of Greece is viewed with apprehension in political circles here, and it will be difficult for the Powers to prevent the despatch of Turkish reinforcements to the island owing to the new departure in the policy af the Hellonic Government. Advices received this morning from Canea state that the town and fits environs are now quiet. Last nightaconsic occurred between Mussulmans.-Peutei French Press Views. PARIS, Wednesday.—The greater part of the French Press, while remarking that some of the news received from Crete is exaggerated, Rgreejin itating th&t the situation at Canea is very serious. The Russian organ Nerd declares thab Greece will be held entirely responsible for events which may occur in the island. The Journal maintains that British policy ought to be made solely responsible for the preaent state of affairs, and declares that that policy constitutes dauger to European peace. The Libre Parole says that a Q!gh official in the Greek Legation in Paris Mates that a recurrence of troubles in Crete Were feared, because it was believed that promised reforms would not be carried out. The Paris Echo states that a meeting of the French Ministers discussed the present situation in the East yesterday evening. It was agreed, the journal adds, that the Situation at Canea had improved, and that no modification could be tiiade in the attitude of France. The Gaulois does not see ground for alarm, as it is certain no European Power desires war. The same journal has received a letter from a 1-tussian diplomatist regarding tbo Franco-Russian Alliance, expressing astonishment at the dissatisfaction displayed by the F<onch Press. In regard to Russia's attitude in the Eastern Question, he declares that it is the duty of the Czar to consider the convenience of France only in so far as it may be reconciled with the interests )f his people. The correspondent points out the state of isolation in which France would find herself If she were to separate from Russia. If, Qe says, sbe tried to draw closer to Germany, she Would sink lower than she was prior to the tlronstadt fetes, for she would no longer have desired time for recuperation, and hopes of tupport which she then possessed would be intirely wanting. Lamentable Condition of Canea. T, rn, r.nM;.ltn. tVltt 1 ZAILIS, Wednesday.— xue i"1"1™ following telegram from a gentleman now in Canea Canea, Tuesday.—The town presents lamentable aspect. Ib is difficult to estimate even approximately the number dead. The SRhting was desperate. The Contul-General of Prance (M. Blanc), aided by his Chancellor, dis- tinguished himself by his energy and courage. '-t the risk of his life he saved not only our Sompatriots, but more than 1,000 Christians, who ou¡d certainly have been massacred. As for the Trench bluejackets their behaviour was simply fcd mi rabl e."—Ecu te r. Despatch of Reinforeernenta Abandoned. CONSTANTINOPLE) Tuesdty. INO lurkisn Warships left Constantinople for Crete yesterday, and it is very improbable any will be sent. Only tae vessel laden with coal and provisions sailed lor Canea yesterday. The reported departure of a Warship was founded on a request made to the Minister of Marine for information as to the ftumber of vessels able to put to sea. No reply »M given to the Minister. The proposed despatch of reinforcements to Crete has beeu abandoned for tne time being.-Reuter. QUESTIONS IN PARLIAMENT. In the House of Commons on lueeday Mr CURZON informed Sir E. Ashmead-Bartlett feat the Government, in concert with the other Powers, were using their best efforts, through >heir Consuls, to re-establish public order and tranquility in Crete without reference to party or .-eed. The migration of Mussulmans from the Interior was due to their alarm where they were in ihe minority,and there was a correspondent move. menfi of Christians from the towns where the Mussulmans were in a majority. There was toothing to show that the Mussulmans so far had been the chief sufferers. Attacks were taking place every day, one day begun by the Christians Md another day by the Mahommedans. Ihe lbltndarmerie Commission and the Judioial Com- toiuion were continuing their labours to secure She carrying out of the reforms demauded and to tiaintain order in Crete. Mr STEVENSON asked whether the Foreign Office had received any confirmation of the tetement that a provisional Government had been appointed rot or near Halepa, and that its Members had proclaimed a union with Greece %nd hoisted the Greek flag. Mr CURZON No, Mr. we have heard nothing .f a provisional Government. The only informa. tion that has been received is to the effect that the Greek fhg was said to have been hoisted three days ago at Acrat-ira by a party of insurgents, who are also reported to have pro- claimed the annexation of the island to Greece t)nt this, however, remains unconfirmed, and the latest news from Canea is that order is being rapidly re-established, and public business has fecommeuced.
