certainty. In nearly every district
Judge Smith has made unexpected
gains and has developed strength in

Information received by Judge Smith
yesterday from various parts of the
state led him to believe that he was
elected beyond the shadow of a doubt.
During the afternoon his ofTlce In the
Commonwealth building wns visited by
scores of Democrats and Republicans
to tender their congratulations. Amnntr
those who spent some time in JudR-e
Smith's office and assisted In the work
of receiving returns from the state was
ex-Sheriff John J. Fahey.
There' was much enthusiasm dis
played by Democrats generally over
the election of a representative of their
party In Lackawanna to the office of
minority Judge of the new Superior
court and as soon as It became reason
ably certain that the Judge was elect'"!
they began to formulate plans to prop
erly celebrate the notable evnt.
It is probable that he will be sere
naded at his home In the near future
ttnd that Inter he will be tendered a
Winner, which will be attended by many
of the prominent citizens of this vicin

day that was particularly gratined
over the election of Judge Smith and
that was John E. Roche, select coun
cilman of the Seventh ward. It was
Mr. Roche who Introduced the resolu
tion at the meeting of the Democratic
county committee last March Instruct
ing the delegates from this county to
use every honorable effort to secure the
nomination of Judge Smith for Judge of
the Superior court.
At the Wllllamsport convention Mr.
Roche was one of the most earnest of
Judge Smith's supporters and It was)
due In a measure to his work that the
Judge's name found a place on the
The latter said last evening that the
Information in his possesion led him
to believe that he would be elected by
about 5,000 votes.

called by the State Camp of Confed

Constantinople, Nov. 7. Following

other Ministers are: Slatl Pasha,
President of tho Council of State; Tew

Turkish Ambassador to Germany. Snld
Pusha was Minister for Foreign Af
fairs In the late cabinet, and previously
Advices received here from Aleppo
to-day say that the Kurds belonging to
a Hamldieh cavnlry regiment have at
tacked and plundered a caravan near
that place. It is also stated that the
Kurds In the province have Joined In an
anti-Christian movement, and that
American missionaries have been ad
vised not to expose themselves to dan
ger while the present excltemeVt lasts.
At the instance of Mr. Herbert, the
British Charge-d Affaires, all tho con
suls In the disturbed districts will be
provided with guards.
Said Pnshn's Promise.
The Turkish Minister for Foreign
Affairs, Said Pnsha, has promised to
give the Ambassadors of the powers a
definite reply within two days ns to
what steps the Porte Intends to take
to restore order In Armenia and pro
vide for the protection of Christians
in that part of the Turkish empire.
This was the point especially alluded to
by the Ambassadors on Tuesday,
when they called separately and repre
sented that the present state of affairs
In Armenia could not be allowed to con
tinue, and that If adequate measures
were not soon tnken to bring about the
restoration of order, the powers would
be compelled, acting In concert, to take
their own steps In the mntter. No
combined action of such grave import
ance upon the part of the powers has
been taken for years, and the Porte was
reminded of the intervention of the
powers In Syria at the time of the
massacre of 1860.
As each day passes, however, the
situation becomes more alarming and
ndds to the difficulty of the task before
the Porte, and, possibly, before the
Kuropean powers. The most alarming
reports are In circulation as to the
number of Armenians who fell during
the recent massacres, some of the
statements having it that tens of
thousands have been massacred. Al
though this estimate is believed to be
exaggerated, there Is no doubt that the
situation Is much more grave than any
body here is willing to admit. From
Syria, especially, the most disquieting
rumors are coming, and that they are
based on facts Is shown by the mo
bilization of twenty battalions of
Rodifs, or reserves, out of the sixty
available, and the steps taken to dis
patch them as promptly as possible
to that part of Asiatic Turkey.
He volt Threatened.
This leads color to the report that the
Armenians are receiving support from
unexpected sources, and 'that the Turk
ish government .may soon be face to
face with nn open and widespread re
volt against the rule of the sultan..
It is even stated thait 'the Armenians
have been successful In a light with the
Turks, and that hundreds of Turkish
Irregular troops have been captured.
Revolutionary placards ore being
scattered here almost dally in the
streets, and the sultan has 'been threat
ened with the choice between abdica
tion and assassination.
The mere calling out of the army re
serves will have little or no effect upon
the situation, as the troops cannot be
relied upon in such an emergency, and
'the wrstched condition of Turkish fin
ances bars anything like wholesale and
energetic action upon the part of the
Turkish government, unless a holy war
Is proclaimed, and that could only be
done by inflaming the religious fanatic
lpm of the Turks against the Chris
tians. This ,ilt Is ibelleved, ilhe Porte
would not hesitate to do In the case of
an Invasion of the Turkish dominions,
but such a step would not be calculated
to suppress Interior disorders.
Arresta of Armenian, and Turkish
suspects are' constantly being made
here and elsewhere, but the newspapers
are eo thoroughly under the control of
the government that few Important
facts In this connection are allowed to
Army Not Trustworthy.
Possibly the gravest turn In recent
events lies In the established fact that
tho dissatisfaction agninst the rule of
the Sultan has extended to tho Turkish
army and navy. The palace officials
are well aware of this, and are greatly
alarmed. Nobody here would be as
tonished to hear at any moment of an
outbreak In the palace Itself; In fact,
persons who are well versed In Turkish
affairs assert that this la among the
Immediate probabilities, and only a
prompt show of force here upon the
part of the European fleets can avert
The police of this city are kept busy
night and day making arrests and
watching everybody and everything.
To such an extent Is the system of sur
veillance carried that two servants In
the employ of Kngllsh merchants here
have been arrested while returning
from the postofflce with letters and
newspapers. The letters and newspa
pers were seized by the police, notwith
standing the protests of the servants,
and carried away for examination. The
merchants promptly complained to the
British Charge d' Affairs, and he hns
made strong representations to the
Porte on the subject.
Trustworthy reportt which have been
received here from Erzerum state that
It has bceen established beyond dispute
ihat the Turkish troops took part In the
recent massacre and pillage of Arme
nians there, and clear evidence of this
fact Will be placed before the repre
sentatives of the powers.

MR. BAYARD ON PROTECTION.
Our Ambassador to Great Britain Tells
the Edinburgh Philosophical Society
That Protection Creates Trust.
Edinburgh, Nov. 7. Hon. Thomas F.
Bayard. Undted States ambassador to
Great Britain, delivered the Inaugural
address at the meeting of the Kdin
burgh Philosophical society this after
noon. His subject wa "Individual
Freedom, the Germ of Naltlonal Pros
perity and Permanence."
The address was of a. ipurc'y ac.i-den-.'C
character. It vindicated per
sonal liberty and free government ns
essential to the happiness, progress and
permanence of national prosperity. In
the comae of the address Mr. Bayard
said the movement of the day, some
times open and somotimes concealed in
robc.j of philanthrophy, Is towards
state socialism as opposed to autocracy,
but either !s despotism nd fa'tal to
that Individual freedom by which the
world, under the laws of (ts origin and
progress was raised from brutality and
barbarism. Autocracy. plutocracy,
oligarchy, socialism and mob rule Is
each equally 'fatal ito v,n ordered
government, which depends upon the
s?ruplous guarding of personal liberty
and personal thought and judgment.
Recurring to state socialism Mr. Bay
ard said: "In my own country I have
witnessed the insatiable growth of a
form of socialism styled protection
which has done more to corrupt public
life, to banish men of Independent
mind from public councils and to lower
the tone of national representation
than any other single cause. Protec
tion now controlling the sovereign
power of taxation, has been perverted
from Its proper function of creating
revenue to support the government in
to an engine for self profit, allltd with
combinations called trusts. It thus
sapped the popular conscience by wiv
ing corrupting Inrgesse to special
classes and throws legislation Into the
political market, where jobbers and
chaff erers take the place of states
men." In concluding his speech Mr. Bayard
made a medley of allusions to Adam
Smith, David Hume, Burns, Scott, and
other men and things Scotch.

The Work a Valuable One from a Historic
Standpoint, Yet the President Exer
cises Ills Authority and For
bids Its Publication.
Washlng'ton, Nov. 7. An Instance of
what many persons will consider an
nl'togvither unwarranted and tyrannical
Interference with the liberty of the
press by the present administration has
Just come to light. One of the most
distinguished of the junior otlicers of
the navy has been forbidden 'to publish
a book prepared by him on the subjects
of the Hawaiian Islands because the
incidents and history contained in It
nre too much iln line with those In
Admiral Walker's report, and too little
with .those evolved by Commissioner
Lieutenant Lurien Young, who has
repeatedly been .mentioned In orders
for gallantry, and 1ms received the
thanks of congress, and been promoted
for heroism, was on 'the Boston at Hon
olulu at the outbreak of the revolution
of 1X93. h was In command of the
marines who were landed ito guard the
United States legation, and took part
In all the sMrrlng events at -the Islands
until his ship was ordered away. At
tho Fourth of July celebration, held
shortly aflter the resolution, he made
a public speech that caused no end of
trouiblo when It came to 'the ears of
the navy department.In It he welcomed
the Hawallar.s into the fold, and was
very eloquent In depleting the glories
of the United Staites, and full of de
lisht over our acquisition of the Islands
In the center of the Padlllc.
His cruise ended in October, 1S93, and
he was ordered to theibureau of records
In the navy department in 'this city.
He t once set to work on a history of
the Hawaiian Islands, and particularly
of the events In which he took part.
The manuscript, containing about 60,.
000 words, was finished some time ngo
and in acs.irdance with the naval reg
ulations, which forbids an officer to
print 'anything without submitting It
to the secretary of the navy, It was
sent to Secretary 'Herbert. The latter.
It Is snild, submitted It to President
Cleveland, and a.ifew days latsr it
was returned to Lieutenant Young with
an absolute refusal to permit its pub
lication. No explanation was given
further itban a general statement that
It was not considered advisable for
the artiXde to be printed.
At Variance w ith mount's Report.
Lieutenant Young, of course, cannot
and will not talk of the matter, but
friends of his who saw the 'book while
It was being written, and lu-fore there
was any question of its suppression sny
that the author has carefully avoided
all criticism of 'the acts of the adminis
tration, dlis well-known opinions,
however, make It certain that the
whole tenor of the book is in a direction
highly distasteful to the president, and
at utter variance with Commissioner
Blount's, report and the president's ut
terances on the subject.
iLiteutunant Young is not an un
known man whose words can Ibe light
ly set aside. He was born In Ken
tucky, and was graduated from the
Naval Academy in 1S7X , On his first
cruise he junvped overrxard In mid
ocean and waved the life of a drowning
sailor. In 1877, when the Huron was
wrecked off the coast of North Caro
lina, he so conducted himself that h'ls
native state presented him a sword
and made him an honorary member of
its legislature, while congress passed a
special resolution conferring on him a
gold medal, thanking him and promot
ing him to tha next higher rank 'in
the service. Since then his service has
been long and distinguished. How
ever, when men like' Admiral Walker,
Admiral Klrkland, Admiral I.Meade and
Admiral Ammen are all rebuked by the
secretary much as a schoolmaster
would rebuke a truant boy, a mere lieu
tenant, however distinguished, can
'hardly hope to receive much considera
