KIZAH OF HYDERABAD DEPOSED WASHINGTON. Not. 9. Earl Kitchener's ultimate mission during j bis mysterious absence from the ! British war office is said by con fidential information roceived here today, to be India, where, according to the game information, British rule Is confronted with a more serious state of unrest than has been gener ally known outside of British of ficial circle. Through the thick veil which the Brit ish censorship has thrown about ths events In India and Kgypt comes a state ment that Nawab, Sultan Ul Mulk, tho Nlsam of Hyderabad, one of the most Influential of the native princes, and a staunch supporter of the British, has !en deposed by his people. Thla development coming as ons of ths climaxes to successive reports of mutinies and unrest, many of which have been substantiated and admitted by the British government is said to be the leading reason for Earl Kitchener's departure from England, which has been shrouded with much secrecy. ' It haa been officially announced that the head or the British war office was on his way to the theater of operations tn the near eaet which has been generally interpreted as meaning the Balkans where the critical situation of ths moment con fronts the allied forc.j. Information reaching the United States, however. through channels not subject to Censor ship Is to the 'effect that It Is we hjnown In London among those close to the gov ernment that while Earl Kitchener may atop In the Balkans to co-ordinate the efforts of the allied forces his ultimate destination is not only India, but Egypt as well, where the British gateway to Asia now is menaced by the Teutonl?-Bulgartan-Turk successes In tho Balkans. Coupled with repeated rumors of activities of German agents fomenting discontent among the native population of India, have come reports of dissaffectlon In Egypt also ascribed to the same sources.
