were thrown into prison at Smyrna
on the belief that be was a plotter
against the sultaD. Dr. Nisbkian is a
prominent chemist of Ksnsa* City.
He is a m?mber of the Amerioan Ma
sonio Order of the Mystic Shrine. His
photograph with the symbolic word
“Ararat” on tbe red ftz fell into tbe
hands of the Turks, who confounded
it with Mount Ararat in Armenia.
They professed to believe that be was
an agent of tbe Armenian revolution
ary plot started in tbe United States.
The mistake was explained by tbe
state department and tbe innocent
people were released after thirty-nine
days’ imprisonment. The danger to
all Amerioans was so great, however,
that the Niehkians abandoned their
large tobacco business and tied to
America on a man-of-war.
Re9ently tbe Sultan issued an ediot
that property confiscated would be re
stored. Fortified with bis naturaliza-
tion papers, tbe doctor will essay tbe
recovery of hie family possessions.
