Loudon, Aug. 18.—(Correspondence of

massacres, eaid to a representative of the
‘ The Armenians have been surprised by
dispatches announcing another massacre
in the very region where the first Arme
nian slaughter occurred this same month,
August. 1894. They hopevl that the intelli
gence of the dispatches had been un
founded. but their deep regret has been
confirmev by later adv Lie furnished by 1
the British consuls at Erzcroum and
Diarbekir, both of which towns are close
to the region where the massacre occur

“In answer to impudent denials of the
Porte, put forward by the Ottoman em
bassy in Jx>ndon, the foreign office itself
communicated confirmation of the news
of the outrages Attempts are being made
to disassociate the Sultan and the Otto
man Porte from participation in these
atrocities, but when it is taken into con
sideration that the general of the Fourth
Turkish Army Corps, which guards the
Caucasus, was present with his troops and
that these were aided by the local Kurds,
whom the Sultan lias always aided and
assisted in their nefarious deeds, it is im
possible for the central authorities at
Constantinople to escape responsibility for
what has occurred.
“As for the Armenians themselves, gen
erally sptakiig, their conduct since the
massacres at Constantinople in 1894 has
b en exemplary. They have preferred to
leave their cause In the hands of the great
I’owtrs of Europe, who made the Turkish
settlement, as regards the maintenance
of the machinery, such as it is, cf the Ot
toman Empire, leaving the latter to per
form a duty which they have, with full
knowledge of all ihe circumstances of
Turkish rule, taken upon th< ms elves by
the Sixty-first Article of the Treaty of
Berl n. That article, signed at Berlin,
July 13, 1878, stipulated as follows:
“ ‘That the Sublime Porte undertakes to
carry out without further delay the ame
lioration reforms demanded by local re
quirements in the provinces inhabited by
Armenians and guarantees their secur
ity against Circassians and Kurds. It
will periodically make known the steps
taken to this effect to the rowers, who
will supervise their application.’
“Fortunately, it was due to British pol
icy and action that the great Powers as
sembled in Berlin and there revised the
treaty of San Stefano, of which article
16 related to Armenia. * Therefore, the
Armenians have always looked to Great
Britain to take the lead in the matter.
British public opinion since 1884 has been
so much excited that Her Majesty’s gov
ernment could not compel i<s ally, Tur
key, to fulfill the Sultan’s solemn promise
in so simple a matter as the security and
protection, not only of the Armenians,
but of all the Christians in Asiatic Tur

LEGISLATI HE MEETS TUESDAY.
Kentucky’s Election Law I* To Be
Frankfort, Ky., Aug. 25.—The Legisla

the puri>ose of amending the Mote elec

message to the Legislature, with brief
suggestions regarding the changes.
It is apparent that nearly every Demo
cratic member will come with a measure
of his own and that the Democratic legis
lative caucMs will have to decide among
them. About a dozen members have de
clared in favor of the Ohio election law.
The advocates of this bill declare that
the Ohio law is similar in some parts to
th* Goebel law of this state and that to
adopt it w ill be to disarm the Republicans
from their present argument against the
statute in this state. The Republican
members of both houses will meet in cau
cus Tuesday night. It is not settled
whether they will put forward any party
measure as a substitute for the Goebel

“The Yaqui Indians in the state of So

the Mexican government for over a year,
are now suing for peace and endeavoring
to be reinstated: on their former reserva
tion and retain their property. Petabyte
and Batamatal, two prominent Yaquis,
arrived here from Hermoeillo last night
and gave out this information.
ißatomatal stated that about 2,000 of the
Yaquis are still holding out against the
government, but he thinks they will sur
render. The movement for peace was
brought about by the peaceful Yaquis on
t the west coast, who were actuated to the
move through fear that Yaquis would be
scattered throughout the republic and
the tribe practically exterminated.

that neither himself nor his local su

THE CHINESE SITUATION
IJikcusMil by an Anthorit > — Russia
and China, He Believe*, Will
Co-operate lu Mutunl
(Special Correspondence Associated Prews.)
London, Aug. 18.—John \V. Book waiter
of Ohio, whose recent books on Siberian
and Asiatic problems have been much
quoted in recent English papers, in an in- j
terview with a representative of the As- j
soda ted Press, said in part:
There are two chief considerations in j
this Asiatic problem. Finst, the double
relation that Russia occupies towards
China, and that which Russia occupies
tow ard England, through her dependenc}. j
India, for since the building and opera- !
tion of the great trans-Siberian and trana- i
Caspian Railroad systems, Russia has
been brought into direct contact with '
China from the Hinterland. It is ob- j
vlous, therefore, that Russia is the mos;
potent factor in directing events which
will determine what the future relations |
of the various nations snail be in the ;
“The importance of these railroad sys
tems and their bearing upon the Asiatic
s tuation. and especially upon China, 1
pointed out nearly two ytars ago in my
book on Siberia and Central Asia. 1 then
said that this system would have more
•far-reaching political, commercial and
even ethnological influence than any oth
er industrial or economic scheme that had
ever been conceived or executed. it
has already thrown England into
a state of alarm for the safety
of India and has caused that descent of
other nations upon the Chinese littoral,
where, in a limited area, there is to be
much future strife, wrangling and, per
haps, profitless warfare.’
“You can see how rapidly this predic
tion has already been fulfilled. It is
hardly likely that the contest between
Western civilization, represented wholly
by quantities, against Eastern civiliza
tion, represented by qualities, which must
Inevitably occur, sooner or later, would
have developed at the*present time had it
not been for the building of these great
railroad lines, the effect of which would
be to establish a practical dominance of
Russia In Asiastie countries and which
might be regarded as a menace to those
nations now holding spheres of influence
there, as well as to those who see in the
possible partition of China opportunities
for territorial aggrandizement. As an in
dication of this change, it Nray be said
that Russia was, ten years ago, the fur
iherest nation awny from China, sepa
rated by impassable steppes, and without
a navy, while all the others European
Powers could reach the Chinese littoral
“The building of these reailroad sys
tems has rapidly changed the entire situ
ation, bringing China, politically and
commercially, to the very doors of Rus
sia and making a conterminous border of
4,000 to 5,000 miles. In fact, it brings
China in physical contact with the Rus
sian empire alone, her contact with oither
nations being only through the depen
dencies of those nations.
“In view of these important facts it
is easy to see what is to be the proba
ble relation of Russia to China, which
seems to can only be of the most
friendly character, and to that end the
maintenance of the integrity of the Chi
nese Empire, especially the middle part,
is of paramount Importance. I believe
that w r hen a general showing o-f hands is
made, it will be apparent that if there
is not an actual alliance between Russia
an<l China, there will be found to be an
intimate cot-operation for the mainte
nance of their political and commercial

The explanation Is simple. M. Lou
bet smokes a pipe. None of France’s
rulers for years past have smoked. True,
M. Felix Faure, the late President, puff
ed cigarettes. But they don’t count. To
smoke is to be a statesman, and M. Lou

as cigarettes mean weakness.
Kruger’s Two Pipes.
Kruger is a great man. The way he
has raised the ‘Transvaal, engineered its
affairs and attempted to throw off tho
yoke of the British power in South Africa
proves Ills power. Oom Patti’s pipe Is
historical. I T p to a year ago it was a
home-made article. The bowl a German
visitor left behind. To it Mr. Kruger at
tached a stem from a Kaffir pipe, and
the mouthpiece he made himself.
The legend runs that this pipe, in which
he has smoked all hi* policy for twenty
years, has been inseparably connected
with his affair*. When he got the inde
pendence of the Transvaal returned in
1881 the stem broke. Just before the
Jameson raid a bit was chipped off the
china bowl. When the murder of Edgar
occurred, which led to the renal attend*’ of
the Outlendens’ agitation, and culminated
in this war, the pipe fell to the ground
and was smashed to fragment*.
A year ago he had a pipe specially made
in Dublin. It i of brier, and the bow),
carved with the Transvaal coat-of-arms,
hold* an ounce of tobacco. Two stems of
cut vulcanite—one long and one short
can be fitted at pleasure. There 1* no
doubt that this pipe made Kruger lose
hie usual caution and pend the ultimatum.

not a thoroughly efficient pipe stopper.
It gets burned, and. owing to the pain, is
removed rapidly, before the work is near

been used for stopping a pipe does not look
pretty; purists might consider the habit
uncleanly, though the ash of an aromatic

FROZE HIS HAND.
When the Thermometer Registered
inn Degrees In the Stiude.
Slouk Falls (8. D.) Cor. Chicago Record.
To have his hand so badly frozen that
amputation was for a time seriously con
sidered, when the thermometer registered
100 degrees In the shade, has not been th
experience of many men, yet Harry
Knowles, a bartender In an Aberdeen sa
loon, had this peculiar experience the
other day. For charging beer in kegs
and forcing it to flow through the pipes
in the bar faucet carbonic acid gas is
used. This comes in liquefied form, and
Is stored in cylinders strong enough to
withstand a pressure of several thousand
pounds to the square inch. These cylin
ders are usually charged to a pressure
of about 1,500 pounds, and a safely plug
is gauged to blow out at 2,400 pounds
pressure. The gas Is not unlike liquid air

In the saloon where Knowles was employ
ed, when the proprietor was out, and, not
understanding the nature of the gas,
Knowles picked up a damp towel and at

stop the flow of escaping gns. It took but
a few moments to freeze the towel stiff,
and the young man did not discover that
the excessive cold had also frozen his
hand, until the proprietor stepped Into
the room and told him to let the gas go,
as nothing could stop It, Knowles then
discovered what had happened to his
hand. He put It In charge of n doctor,
who says the hand will be saved, but the
victim suffers a great deal of pain, and
will be laid up for several weeks.

Carina* Power of Negro Who Seems
to Have Deceived Many Physicians.
From the Philadelphia Medical Journal.
An nged colored individual Is making
tho rounds of the physicians* offices and
hospitals, exhibiting himself as a man
with two heart*. He also claims to bo
able to displace his heart* into the ab
dominal cavity. He has traveled widely
in this country and has been in Europe.
There Is no evidence whatever that the
man has two heart*, nor i there any
aign that an aneurism exists. When he
is about to “dislocate his heart” he u*ks
the examiner first to listen with the steth
oscope or phonendoscope over the normal
cardiac area for the heart sounds. He
then twists and con fort* himself In va
rloue ways, using actively the muscles
of the anterior abdominal wall. As he
does thl* there la seen io rise suddenly
iit the left Iliac region a rounded, pear
shaped prominence, which Is pulsatile and
to which he now risks the examiner to
apply tho stethoscope. An obscure
rhythmio wound i heard over the area,
which is the size of a large fist, and
which conveys io the palpitating hand c*
sensation swelling, though less prominent,
on the right side.
With a great show of effort he holds the
prominence on one or the other aide for
about twenty seconds. If the exanlinor.
Instead of listening over the supposed
heart, places his stethoaoo-pe in the normal
situation of the valve pointß, he readily
! detects the heart sounds in practically
| undlminished intensity. Moreover, j>er
| rusttlon over the supposed hearts gives
| n more or le*u? tympanitic note. The man
ha* evidently by long practice gained t*
jtocullar control over the superficial ab
<k>minal muscles—such as some persons
have over the scalp and ears—by means
of which he is able to throw a certain
eection into prominence and to produce a
rhythmic vibration that closely simulates,
both in character and rate, the pulsation
of the heart.
