Trouble Over the Turks' Raid Threatens to Become Serious.

CONSTANTINOPLE, Aug. 25 - The Government is dispatching a special commission of high rank to the Turco-Persian frontier to open an inquiry regarding the recent invasion by Turks of Persian territory and the blood-shed and destruction of property that followed. The Porte repudiates the allegation that Ottoman troops advanced beyond the frontier. Reports received here say that the matter threatens to assume a grave character, especially as the Persian inhabitants of the district are being severely persecuted by Turkey's Kurdish auxiliaries.
