trams, electric lights, telephones and a
new safe bridge.
Constantinople's geographical posi
tion has made her Bangutnnry history,
for she controls a high road of com
merce between Asln and Europe, nnd
Nature herself planned the ports. The
city is divided Into three separated
quarters, Stamhoitl and Pern-Gnlata lie
on the European side, the Golden Ilorn
between them, and ScutnrI squats on
the Asiatic side, across the Bosporus.
Like outstretched nrms, the two straits
come up from the Sen of Marmora to
Galatn nnd Pera nre the European
quarter, opposite Stamboul, where the
representatives of foreign powers have
long maintained their embassies nnd
homes. Once the suburbs of Sttunboul,
this pnrt of the city was known as
JiiHtlnlanapolls until the Genoese made
It Into an Italian town nnd fortllled It
with walls and many towers, one of
which, the Galata Fire Tower, still
stands, a lofty lookout station from
which fires are reported and signals
Hashed to ships after dark.
Nowadays Pern's crooked streets
are alive with allied soldiers, refugees,
relief workers, adventurers, peddlers,
beggars, and a few tourists. Pass

The American residents number
about four hundred, the largest colony
between Home nnd Manila. There Is
but little soclnl life, and the only
piuces of amusement are the enfes and
restaurants, with their adjoining caba
rets nnd moving-picture screens.
Galata Bridge Its Keynote.
While the Galata bridge between the
European quarter nnd Stamboul still
lives up to Its tradition of having every
nationality In the world cross It at
least once an hour, It lacks some of
Its old chnnn, becnuse of the Turkish
people's renunciation of color. The
men for the most part hnve adopted
the European business suit, with
which they wear a red fez, and the
women's costumes are usually of black.
What the IMulto bridge Is to Venice,
the Pont Ncuf to Paris, the West
minster to London, so is the Galata
bridge to Constantinople the keynote
to the city.
A constant Btrcnm of polyglot peo
ples flows ucross the Golden Horn:
ltussln,n refugees, In pajnmaconts
tucked Into trousers grown too large;
Armenian and Greek incrchnnts and
refugees; British, French and Italian
army nnd navy ofllcers; Amerlcun sail
ors; Chinese, Japanese ami Persian
merchants; the lust of the outmoded
eunuchs; dervishes In brown, with
conc-shnped hats; Cretans In baggy
trousers and embroidered vests; Greek
priests with black chiffon veils
streaming from their hats; hnmals
(porters) with roomfuls of furniture
on their hacks; Arabs In yellow bur
nooses; maimed and diseased beggars;
Mohnminednn prleets In pink or green
robes; black troops in red caps nnd
snshes; Jewish guides; American re
lief workers; Hindustani gunrds In
twisted turbans nnd scarlet capes; an
occasional woman gypsy In baggy
trousers; Levartlnc tradesmen; Al
banian peasants In embroidered white
leggings; Ilawulians, Filipinos, and a
few drummers from "points west of
Chicago" all these pass buck and
forth In the course of a day.
The tnxes were recently doubled on
the bridge, nnd the eight TurkUh col-lei-tons
were ordered to make the Turk
ah women, previously exempt, pay for
the privilege of crossing the Golden
Horn. The women, however, Indig
nantly refused, nnd at both ends of the
bridge a constant conflict went on be
tween protesting officials and the wom
en, who slipped by with exclamations
The collectors did not hnve tho
temerity to lny hands on these toll
evaders, because Turkish women were
for so long a time the exclusive prop
erty of their husbands that custom
still forbids a raun detaining a woman
by force in any sort of public argu
ment. Tho traditional sncredness that sur
rounds the person of a Turkish woman
had a curious result during the war,
for the Turks did not dnre to search
one of them, even though it was known
that she carried unlawful messages lu
On both sides of the bridge are docks

Stamboul Is Really Turkish.
If anything of the real Turkey Is to
be seen, Pern must be abandoned for
Stamboul. In this ancient city, which
was Byzantium und New Itome, tho
mosques, coffee houses, turbehg
(domed tombs) nnd fountains remind
one, even In their dilapidation, of the
city's past days of greatness,
Although the houses are nearly all
constructed of wood, they are never
painted, t6r the Turks hnve a theory
that If their property looks prosperous
their taxes will be Incrensed. So tha
window lattices crumble and fall, tho
boards sag, the shingles wnrp, and
nothing is repaired.
The population Is Inactive and looks
discouraged. Men sit in cafes and talk
about the hard times. Old graybearda
sit on the sidewalks and smoke nargl
lehs. The letter-writer has a stand
near the centrally located mosques,
nnd still makes nn excellent living
from the Turks, few of whom can read
A group of dervishes, who, like the
city, have declined In plcturesquencss,

Scutari, too, has vast ruined sections.
So has Pera, on a much smnller scale.
The publisher of The Orient, the only
American newspaper In Stamboul,
says that the llres have caused the
housing situation to become acute and
the rents to mount enormously. In fact,
It costs more to live In Constantinople
today than In any other city lu '.no
world, not excepting New York. Tho
city is especially crowded now with
refugees nnd foreigners, who add ilO

site by archeologlsts.
