The Only Hope for Unhappy Chris
tiaos in Turkey.
They Pisa and Execute Dntoherles with
Unparalleled Crncty-The Powers
Must Interior to Save the Ex
termination of Christians.
Boston. Nov. IS. Reliable corrc
spondence received in Boston from
Constantinople states that the attitude
of the Moslems in Marash at the end
of October was bo menacing tihat the
heads of the Christian sects called to
gether on the governor asking special
measures of protection. Oir Friday the
governor having; paid no attention to
this request, the Moslems attacked the
Christians, wounding quite a number
and causing a general flight of all
parties to their homes. The heads of
the Christian sects then made a new
petition for protection, this time in
writing;, and addressed separately to
the governor and the commander of the
troops. Still nothing; was done to check
the Moslem and a general assault was
made on the Christian quarter, and a
large number of Christians were killed
and wounded.
The Armenian bishop and the Ar
menian Catholic bishop and the Prot
estant rtastors sent a collective tele
gram saying that, the. slaughter was
stui going on ana begging for something-
to be done to stop it. The Turks
say that the reason of the massacre is
the assassination of four police by the
people of Zeltoun, .twenty mjles front
Marash. The worst of .It is that the
sultan and pashas sill conslderthia crime
In another place as sufficient to justify
the massacre in Marash.
There Is not a doubt that the mas
sacre was ordered from here. The tone
of the remark among the staff at the
Sultan's palace has been all along
that the Armenians shall be killed be
fore the reforms can be executed. Noth
ing has been done in any place to pun
ish the crlmnals, but In all the places
where the massacres have occurred
great numbers of Armenians have been
arrested as though those who escaped
had committed crime In escaping. You
must not believe one of the stories that
are sent out by the Turks about con
flicts at these plates where massacres
occur. No conflict occurs. There may
be in some cases a reason in the con
duct of Armenians elsewhere for in
dignation, but In every case so far
when a massacre occurs it is a cold
blooded, deliberate affair, gotten up
separately from any alleged cause.
The Powers Must Aet.
Unless the powers Intervene shortly
in a way that will compel the Sultan
to order the massacres to cease there
is no knowing1 where the matter will
end. The most Infamous falsehoods as
to attacks of Armenians upon Turkish
women and children are being dili
gently circulated in the city and in the
country in order to Are the hearts of the
Moslems and the government Is open
ly arming or favoring the arming of the
Moslem populace, while searching Ar
monlans. to take away even their Jack
kniv'es lest some Moslem should be hurt
when the massacre is undertaken.
The effervescence here against the
Sultan is taking more form. There was
some revolt of the Albanian bodyguard
of the sultan and a fight of some im
portance in the palace grounds. A num
ber of the Moslem patriotic committee
attempted to kill the minister of ma
rine. They had previously ordered him
to resign on pain of death. It Is said
that the minister was only wounded,
but it Is very hard to get accurate in
formation of any of these things.
The situation is going to be worse be
fore it is better. The feeling is that an
American man-of-war should be sent to
Beyrout, one to Smyrna, leaving at
Alexanaretta the Marblehead, now
there, one to this city, and. If possible,
one to the Black Sea coast.
Washington, Nov. 13. Secretary Ol-

Additional Testimony Is Introduced in
tho Investigation of tho Quaker City
Municipal Affairs.
Philadelphia. Nov. 13. The State Sen
atorial committee, which Is Investigat
ing the municipal affairs-of Philadel
phia, continued Its session this after
noon. Addison F. Bender, who during
the past ten days has been examining
the cleaning of asphalt paved streets in
Philadelphia on behalf of the citizens
Municipal Association, was the first
witness. He told at some length of the
insufficient force employed In doing the
work, which la contrary to the specifi
cations of the contracts. The witness
further testified to the unsatisfactory
manner In which several streets are be.
lng paved. Bernard Bowen, who class
ed himself as a practical pavlor, whose
occupation as walking delegate of the
National Pavlors and Rammers asso
elation, testified that it would cost $4
per yard to pave the streets according
to the contracts, and that at tne present
price at which the work has beenza ward'
ed ($2.87 per cubic yard) the contracts
could not be carried out. He told of the
inferiority of paving blocks used in
Philadelphia to those used in New York
Mr. Bowen testified to having sent sev
eral sworn complaints to the authorl
ties regard. ng inferior paving, but that
tne complaints availed nothing.
Dennis Mahoney, a contractor, stated
that no "fitted" Belgian paving blocks
were used in Philadelphia, as reaulred
by law, only rough paving blacks being
utilized. Mr. Mahoney created a slight
ripple of laughter when he declared
that "fitted" paving blocks were used
In New York and Boston because no
other kind would be tolerated. The wit
ness then testified to the non-fulfiill-ment
of contracts as regards the re
moval of ashes, the cleaning of streets
and the cremation of garbage.
John Maneely. an ex-lnsoector of the
collection of garbage, told of the feed
ing of the garbage to hogs In Dela
ware county, in May and June last, by
the American Incineration company
and the United States Fuel and Manu
facturing company, instead of cremat
ing It. The refuse, the witness con
tinued, was also fed to cattle In other
Charles A. Richardson, who Is affili
ated with the Citizen's Municipal asso
ciation, testified that the Davina- of
streets by the street rallways( the thor-
ougnrares occupied by the railways) Is
done Irrespective of the laws, and he
also related an ineffectual interview
which he and other members of the as
sociation had in 1893 with the citv au
thorities in this respect. Mr. Richard
son referred to the liberal profits of the
Philadelphia street railways, which
ract lea mm to believe that , the com
panies should pave the highways as the
ordinances stipulate. At 4.10 p. m. the
committee adjourned until Thursday.

Wanamaker Pays a Debt That the Re
publican Committee Repudiated.
. Indianapolis, Nov. 13. John Wana
maker, ex-postmaster general, has
made his word good by sending his per
sonal check to W. T. Durbtn, of Ander
son, for 110,000. Just before the elec
tion of 1892, when Mr. Wanamaker was
passing through this city, the State
Republican committee asked him for
310,000. Wanamaker told them to ad
vance It and he would see that the na
tional Republican committee repaid
On this assurance Durbln, then an
officer of the committee, borrowed $10 -000
for campaign use. The national
committee repudiated the debt. Thus

United States Supremo Court Says They
Are Vegetables snd Not Seeds.
Washington, Nov. 13. The United
States Supreme court decided officially
that beans are vegetables. The ques
tion arose In the case of Hyman Sons
and others against the collector of the
port of New York. The plaintiffs sought

are regarded as vegetables by common
usage they should be so considered by
customs officials. i

Denver, Nov. 13. At the Union Depot
yesterday the scenes rivaled those at
the Grotto of Lourdes, so graphically
depleted by Zola. Every train that ar
rived, from the first break of day to
midnight, was filled with its quota of
sick, feeble and emaciated Invalids
who have come for treatment by
Schlatter, the New Mexico healer. This
is the last week of the healer in Den
ver and the visitors are afraid that
when he reaches a larger city it will
be next to impossible to approach him
for the laying on of hands.
Cripples are as numerous as the able
bodied among the travelers, and the
lower hotels are turning away guests
who desire to be within reasonable dis
tance of their goal when the Bun rises
In the morning and they get ready to
take their position in the almost end
less line that haunts the healer's neigh
borhood. Cold weather does not deter
them from gathering in the early hours
of the morning, and the residents of the
vicinity do a thriving trade in hot
bricks, and coffee to cheer the pilgrims,

One special train arrived last even
ing carrying 300 people from along the
line of the Union Railway company,
to whom free passes had been given by
the management, so confident are the
railway men in tho supernatural heal
er. A circular had been issued by tho
Union Pacific announcing that the
train would leave Omaha Saturday
night, and that all who suifered among
the road s employes would be carried
to Denver free of charge. When they
arrived here last evening the Interior of
the depot resembled a hospital, for
they came with broken limbs, distorted
arms, and fractures of various mem
bers that defied the best surgical skill
of the railway company. They were
provided with lodgings in the local
ity where Schlatter holds forth during
week days, and tomorrow the pilgrims
win return to their homes in Nebraska.
It Is stated that this extraordinary
faith of a corporation Is due to the re
markable cure effected in the case of
the wife of General Manager Dlckln
son, who came for treatment In a pri
vate car and stood in line all day like
the most ordinary citizen. Her grati
tude for relief is attested by this ex
tension of free transportation. She
was a sufferer from a deafness that de
prived her of the pleasures of life. No
medical or surgical aid proved effect.

to the healer. When she departed she
said she felt better already, and her
mends noticed an improvement, but
the healer told her she was' not to ex

Powers Wants Representation.
New York, Nov. 13. The annual fall
meeting of the National Base Ball
League was commenced to-day at the
firtn Avenue Hotel.
1 The board of directors went into ses
slon first and got through the execu
tlve business. The treasurer's account
was approved and accepted. A num
ber of appeals from players asking to
nave lines innicted during the past sea
son remitted, were refused.
A letter was received from John M,
Ward, ex-captaln of the New York
base ball club, asking that his name be
taken from the reserve list of players,
as he has retired permanently from
base ball, and keeping his name on the
reserve list Injures him in his present
profession. The matter was referred to
the National board meeting on the first
or January.
Baltimore was declared the winner of
tne championship of 1895.
The question of fines, umpires and
Sunday playing were aiscussed, but no
decisions were arrived at and they re
main in exactly ine same poslton as be
fore. The meeting then adjourned until 11
o clock to-morrow morning, when the
first business to be taken up will be the
Harry vv memorial matter.
A very important deal was made dur
ing the afternoon. Billy Nash, the cap
tain and third baseman of the Boston
team, was exchanged for Billy Hamil
ton, the outfielder of the Philadelnhia
club. There were rumors of other deals
but this was the only one consummated.
Jack Doyle, ex-captaln and ex-manager
of the New Yorks, was In great de
mand, but Manager Irwin thought that
If he WkS considered such a prize by
others e might also prove useful to the
New Yorx and no deal was made.
There was a very strong delegation
from the Eastern and Western Leagues
in the hotel to-day. President P. T.

Evidence of Insanity.
Laredo, Tex., Nov. 13. Last Monday
evening a tall, fine-looking man. ac
companied by a woman, registered at
the Hotel Hamilton as C. Schuler and
family. With them was a pretty girl,
8 years old. Yesterday at 8 o'clock the
man hired a buggy and took the wo
man and girl to the depot despite the
Inclement weather. At S o'clock he re
turned the buggy and ate supper at
the Hotel Hamilton, retiring after
ward. : Last night A. Shepherd discovered
two bodies lying In the brush In Chacon
Bottom, just beyond a small reservoir,
two and a half miles from central city.
He noticed the trails where the bodies
had been dragged through the thorns
and the prints of the buggy wheels on
the ground. Being afraid to touch the
bodies he came In and notified Recor
der Pierce what he had seen. Officers
proceeded at once to the place and
searched the bodies of the woman and
child. They were Identified as the per
sons who had gone riding with Schuler
yesterday evening.. While the news of
the find was flying over the -city an
other chapter In this horrible affair was
enacted at the-Hotel Hamilton. At
o'clock this morning tike proprietor of
the hotel knocked at Schuler's room
and asked hlm-where his family were.
He replied that he had taken them last
evening to Asteo, where they had taken
the limited train for Mexico.
"I think you are mistaken," said the
proprietor. "Your family is not in
Schuler shut the door and drawing a
revolver, shot himself through tne
heart. On his person was found a
cigar case with over $1,600 In green
backs. The cigar case contained the
name of Sam Kuens. It Is believed his
brother Is in Fort Worth and he was
at once notified of the tragedy. Schuler
stated during his stay here that he had
beeen master mechanic for a railroad.
Schuler spent most of his time in
saloons and his actions indicated that
he was either unbalanced or meditat
ing the horrible murders which he com
mitted yesterday.

xaier aeveiopments make it appear
that robbery was the motive for the
murders. It is believed the murdered
woman was Mrs. Caroline Menn, of
Dallas, Tex. Her child was a girl of
auout iu years. The murderer is sup
posed to be William or Sam Kuntz. of
Kansas City. Kunts stated while here
that, he had been a master mechanic
for a railroad, and letters were found in
his trunk addressed to William Kuntz,
lo7 Grand avenue. Kansas Cltv.
In the murdered woman's trunk was
found a marriage license bearing the
names of Catherine Menn and Theodore
A letter was found in the woman's
effects, dated Oct. 4, from G. B. Brown
a Fort Worth, Tex., merchant, ad
dressed to Mrs. Caroline Menn. Dallas.
Tex., the merchant requesting her to,
send a check for $25. From this It Is
inferred the woman had a bank ac

A Steam Oyster Boat Sinks Near Rock-
away Beseh in s Heavy Sea.
New York, Nov. 13. Five lives were
lost this morning by the capsizing of
tne steam oyster boat James W. Boyle,
near Kockaway Inlet. A strong wind
from the northeast was rolling up a
Dig swell over the shores which aenn

ana making ror the mouth of the Inlet,
wmun is me entrance to Jamaica Bay
inat was at 7 o'clock. The tide was
half ebb, and the tug was struggling
along, making slow headway. Half an
hour later Captain Deakln saw the
oyster boat steaming around the boll
buoy, which marks the channel, and
leading to the northwest for the inlet.
The change of course brought her Into
the trough of the sea, and she rolled
heavily, she had gone but a few lengths
when a big sea was seen to sweep over

open gangwav. It lifted eft th.

house was left to mark the spot where

brought his tug and tow around and
neauea duck towards the buoy. He
had four scows, on each of which were
twenty-five men and the keeper's fam

in such a sea, 'and therefore kept his

of an hour to reach the wreckage
Floating about were the pilot house,

other bits of Joiner work, but, though
he scanned the water carefully, not a

Honolulu, Nov. , via San Francisco,
Nov. 13 (Correspondence of the United
Press per steamer Cootie). The new
Japanese consul general, Shlmamura,
arrived here yesterday. He had been
consul general at New York and Mex
ico. He says his government Is dis
satisfied with the failure of the Hawai
ian government to live up to the terms
of the immigration treaty with Japan
in trying to check the influx here of
Japanese. He Is to give special atten
tion to that subject. This government
has for some time looked with much
apprehension upon the increasing pro
dominance In number of Japanese In
Hawaii over the other nationalities
as well as upon the restless and fac
tious temper shown by them.
On this account they have stopped
the Importation of Japanese contract
laborers and caused Chinese to be sup
plied instead.
On the evening of Nov. 4 over 100
Japanese in Japtown were engaged in
a riotous conflict. The police had to be
called out in force, and they used their
clubs freely. Several Japs were cut

dissatisfied with Hawaii because of the
alleged failure of the latter govern
ment to respect the terms of the Immi
gration treaty with Japan, excite some
attention here In view of the known de
sire of the Japanese people to acquire
possession of the Hawaiian Islands. The
population is a very mixed one. The
natives, full-blooded and half caste,
number about 40,000; there are 25.000
Japanese, 15,000 Chinese, and 20,000
whites, the latter being mainly Ameri
cans. The Japanese government has
disclaimed any desire to acquire Ha
waii, but the common people are pos
sessed of the Idea and it Is feared they
may compel their government to take
some aggressive steps looking to the
acquisition of the country.
it is pointed out that Fujil, who waa
the Japanese consul general at Hono
lulu when Queen Llliuokalanl was de
posed, was an Intimate friend of Paul
lawman, wno was tne queen's confl
dentlal advisor, and that upon his re
turn to Japan after the provisional
government waa established he carried
with him a strong prejudice against
the Dole administration. Fujll now
holds an Important post In the Toklo
iweign omce ana it is openly asserted
here that his Influence Is all against
the present government and In favor of
ine annexation or the Island.
