The peace negotiations are settled; that is to say, the plans suggested
by Lord Salisbury, and agreed to by the Powers, have also been accepted
by the Sultan.

On the 18th of September, after a conference of three hours, the
ambassadors and Tewfik Pasha signed their names to the treaty. As soon
as this was done, Tewfik carried the document to the palace and obtained
the Sultan's signature also.

According to the terms of the treaty, the troops are to be withdrawn
from Thessaly within one month after it goes into effect, and the Powers
are to control the income of Greece until the war indemnity of fifteen
million dollars shall be paid.

Nothing now remains but for Greece to agree and for King George to sign
his name beside that of the Sultan.

Though every one must feel glad that peace has been made between these
two warring nations, yet the terms are so hard for Greece that if she
signs the treaty she will practically be signing away her independence
