LONDON, Oot. 1 The outstanding1
feature of the Turko-ltallan war news
today is the attempted mediation of Ger

provable in the light of the statement

that a report that the German ambassa

It Is reported from Malta that a Brit

saying that Tripoli bad been occupied by
the Italians. ,
All Reports Censored,
The Italian censorship is keeping the
world In the darkness in regard y the
progress of events In the Mediterranean.
From Italy Itself, Turkey. Tripoli and the
eas where the Italian navy Is operating,
conflicting reports continue to come In
One cablegram announced definitely
that Tripoli had been bombarded and
occupied Another said that Uiat no at
tack on the city has been mad, It Is
certain that the Italians had not at
tacked the town up to midnight Satujr
day. The reports as to the situation at Fre
veaa are equally conflicting. Turkish offi
cials here confirm a news di&patch which
says that the forts had been destroyed
and 1,800 troops landed, while Italy gives
an emphatic denial of the report, saying
that the Italian government had no In
tention of reaortlng to acts against the
territorial status of Turkey and Europe.
Europe Is greatly relieved at the re
ceipt of news that Turkey has assured
Greece that It has no Intention of at
taoklug It as had been rumored. The suc
cess o ft he Italian blockade of the Trip
oli coast from Tunis to Egypt and its
scouring o ft he seas la shown In the
arrival of two csptured Turkish trans
ports at Taranto and Brldlst respectively.
The Impression prevails that the hos
tilities will be of brief duration. It Is
believed that Turkey, finding taelf unable
to dspatch troops to Tripoli, will acoept
the mediation of Germany.
