Esref Aziz started his search for Tatavlali, but the brothers of Zakaryan went to Payitaht. Ahmed had a secret meeting with Manyas and told him that Abdulhamid desired to talk to him. Manyas understood the plan of Abdulhamid and started to act according to it. Abdulhamid declared that he planned to construct the wireless telegraph stations and create a tender for that. The Grand Vizier found the committee for that tender. Hechler asked Isaac to become a part of that tender and later he pressurized Abdulhamid to cancel the plan of establishment of the stations.
Abdulhamid defied the ideas of Hechler. Isaac proposed that he planned to build the stations without any profit but Hunkar declared that the final decision would be taken at the tender. Talat followed the Karasu’s plan and had written the article to demonstrate that wireless telegrams are inappropriate. As the reaction to the article, Talat opposed that and backed the decision of Hunkar. Hechler seized all the Isaac’s money and bank account in the England. Hence Isaac lied to Abdulhamid and became a part of the tender.
