REED RECEIVES CALLERS
The First Citizens of the Land Pay
NO PROMISES HAVE BEEN MADE
The Man from Malno Will Proeeed la
Cautious Manner-lie Is Pleased .
with the New Congressional
Timber on the Ground.
Washington, Nov. 27. When, Con
gressman Thomas B. Reed, of Maine,
was asked by a friend if he had been
busy to-day, he replied with a bland
smile that "many of our first citizens
called to pay their respects between the
breakfast and the dinner hour."
This hardly' expresses the situation.,
The "first cltlsens" referred to not only
called In large numbers, but many of
the number placed their wishes in writ
ing and left them with Mr. Reed's pri
vate secretary. It Is for this reason
that three clerks were busy In one of Mr.
Reed's apartments to-day briefing let
ters and writing out the replies which
Mr. Iteed had found time to dictate. 80
far as can bo learned Mr. Reed made no
promises with respect to chairmanships
or committee assignments. Those who
are sufficiently In his confidence to
speak with Intelligence regarding his
views ridicule the report that when he
arrived in Washington on Saturday
last he brought with him a complete
list of the committees.- More than Half
of the next house 1b composed of new
members who are not only untrained In
the methods of national legislation, but
or whose capacities Mr. Reed has no
knowledge. It Is necessary that he
should meet these gentlemen, talk with
them, learn their wishes and acquaint
himself with their abilities.
Then there are other considerations.
Men who are In the line of promotion
expect chairmanships without regard to
the fact that in several notable cases
this would give to a few states the con
trol of nearly all the more important
committees. There are other consider
ations which must enter Into the fram
ing of the committees which will delay
the completion several weeks.
Promising New Members.
Mr. Reed Is reported to be well satis
fied with the new members who will
form so large a part of the Republican
majority In the next house. He finds
thut they "size up" well: that they are,
so far as he can see. fully up to the
usual standard of congressmen gener
ally, and this fact will. It Is thought
simplify his work greatly.
The principal gossip about the hotels
where the politicians mainly congre
gate Is over the chairmanships of the
ways and means and appropriations
committees. As the ways and means
committee now stands 8. E. Payne, of
New York, is first on the list of Repub
lican members, with John Dalzell, of
Pennsylvania, second. Both gentle
men deplre the chalrmashlp, and' the
friends of each are making strenuous
efforts In their behalf. On the appro
priations committee David B. Hender
son, of Iowa, a veteran member of the
house, is the leading Republican mem
ber. It Is suspected that Sneaker Reed
will dlsDose of these chairmanships by
conferring them In each case upon the
ranking members which would give
Mr. Payne, or nw York, ways and
means, and Mr. Henderson, of Iowa,
Mr. Dalzell, of Pennsylvania, It la
suggested will be transferred to the
Ohio and Indiana Combine.
The action of the Ohio and Indiana
delegations In congress In their respec
tive caucuses tonight practically settles
the contest over the elective offices of
the house of representatives. Ohio de
cided to cast her nineteen votes for the
so-called combine ticket, and twelve
votes of the Indiana delegation went
the same way. The ticket whose nomi
nation the events of tonight seem to
foreshadow and which will doubtless
receive the majority vote of Saturday
nlirht's caucus Is as folows: Clerk,
Alexander McDowell, of Pennsylvania;
doorkeeper, W. D. Glenn, of New York;
sergeant-at-arms, C. P. Russell, of Mis
souri; postmaster, J. C. McElroy, of
GOV. MORTON'S CANDIDACY.
Ho Is Said to Be More Seriously Consider
ing the Idea Than Heretofore.
Albany, N. Y., Nov. 27. Intimate po
litical friends of Governor Levi P. Mor
ton say that the attitude of the gover
nor toward the proposition to present
his name to the Republican national
convention as a candidate for the presi
dency, has changed in the last six
weefs. Prior to that It was safe to say
he laughed at the Idea of being a can
didate, and shrank from the vast am
ount of responsibility and work that the
election would entail. To-day he is
seriously considering the proffer of New
York s vote In the national Republican
convention next summer, and estimat
ing the chances of capturing the dele
gates from other states.
The Republican leaders have taken It
upon themselves to assure Governor
Morton of the fidelity of the party In
New York to him, and several of them
who would sloe with Governor Morton

even against Mr. Piatt were that nec

TRIED TO WRECK CAR.
Thoughtless Boys Place Obstructions
Upon a Railroad Track.
Lancaster. Pa., Nov. 27. Morris Wit
mer, Samuel Wlker, Henry Kachel,
William Oaehr and - Amos Wltmer,
ranging In age from 15 to 10 years, have
been arrested for attempting to wreck
an electric car by placing heavy rocks
on the tracks of the Litltz railway.
The boys admit their guilt and say
they put the rocks on the track to see
the cars Jump. The place where the
boys put the rocks is an especially
dangerous point and loss of life would
have probably resulted If the car had
jumped the track, but fortunately In
each case the obstruction was discov
ered In time.

fruit steamer Horsa, whose reported
seizure for Cuban filibustering at
Kingston, Jamaica, has been the cause
of considerable talk, arrived here today
and discharged her cargo at the

It was the Intention of Captain Wl

but this afternoon Collector of Port
Read, at the Instance of District At
torney Ingham, refused to grant the
steamer clearance papers. It is under
stood that the district attorney Is act
ing under instructions from the de
partment of Justice at Washington and
that the Spanish government Is the
complainant on the grounds that the
vessel Is violating the neutrality laws.
Until the matter shall be adjusted the
Horsa will be obliged to remain at this
The Horsa carried one cabin passen
ger, William Dougherty, a railroad con
tractor, who returned to his home In
Pennsylvania from Port Antonio Ja
maica. There were also seven deck
passengers, all Inborers.
Washington. Nov. 27. Attorney Gen
eral Harmon declined this afternoon to
discuss the matter of the seizure at
Philadelphia of the Danish steamer
Horsa. It is understood here, thut the
detention was made on the request of
the Spanish minister,. De Lome.
Peter McOcoch, Who Ones Tried to Cor
ner Lard, Is Found Dead In Ills Bath-
Milwaukee, Wis., Nov. 27. About 10.30
this morning Peter McGeoch, who lives
opposite the National Soldiers' Home in
an elegant mansion, ordered his car
riage to go to the city, and then went
upstairs. As he did not appear the ser
vants became alarmed and Instituted a
search for him. Miss Annie Bettse, who
has been a servant In the house for
about a year, looked through the key
hole of the bath room door, which was
locked, and saw McGeoch lying on the
floor with a revolver In his hand. He
had shot hlmBelf through the mouth
and death was presumably Instantane
ous. When found Mr. McGeoch had on his
business suit and was apparently ready
to start for the city. The servants no
ticed nothing peculiar nDout his actions
before the time he went to his room.
Mr. McGeoch's suicide is taken to be the
result of divorce proceedings began last
Monday by Mrs. McGeoch on the ground
of Incompatibility of temper.
Mrs. McGeoch was Mrs. Llhbpy,' of
Kenwood, a surburb of Chlnncto. She
met McGeoch and they wore married
about eight years ago at the Leland
hotel, Chicago. Since their marriage
they have lived at the National Avenue
homestead of Mr. McGeoch white In
the city. Mr. McGeoch had three chil
dren, a son and two daughters, who
after his marriage, occupied a house
on Grand avenue, which their father
Since Mrs. McGeoch left, one of the
daughters, it is understood, has been
keeping house for her father.
No man was for years better known
on the Chicago and Milwaukee boards
of trade than Mr. McGeoch. He was a
daring spculator up to the disastrous
lard deal of 1883, when he attempted to
corner lard, which scheme failed.

REVIEW OFJffi SITUATION
An Unbiased Glance at the Affairs
CAUSE OP THE BUTCHERIES
Plunder Seems to Have Been the Metn
Object-Many Armenians Are Protected
by .Turks-Thousands of Survivors
Are In Destitute Circumstances.
Constantinople, Nov. 15. The follow
ing matter has been handed to the
European manager of the United Press,
who Ib now In Constantinople. The lat
ter from full confidence In the Ameri
can Christian men who present it and
from careful personal observation, is
able to forward It to the American
press as an Impartial statement of
facts. The statement has the full en
dorsement of Minister Terrell.
During the- month of October a con
siderable part of the Armenian districts
in the provinces of Trebizond, Erzer
oum, Bltlis, Van, Harput, Dlarbekir
and Sivas, has been laid waste and a
number not yet full known of the Ar
menian Inhabitants have been killed
by men intent on cnushing into Impo
tence the Armenian race In Turkey. Aa
the awful tidings have come In by drib
lets, the Turkish government has dili
gently telegraphed abroad In regard
to each place that Armenians had at
tacked Moslems, thus arousing a frenzy
of indignation which could not easily be
controlled, but that order had been re
stored after some loss of life. The effect
of these telegrams has been to culti
vate the belief that there has been some
general rising of Armenians and that
we are In the presence of a calamity
which Is merely the result of lawless
proceedings on the part ot the Ar
Natural Indignation with the Arme
nians for rising at the very moment
when the reform scheme was about to
be put In operation, may be moderated
when it Is known that up to this date
the only authentic rleing of Armenians
has taken place at Zeltoun, in the pro
vince of Aleppo, and far from the socne
of the massacres. Moreover, such cases
offer opportunity for examination, sev
eral circumstances cited In the Turkish
dispatches as causes of the bloodshed
have been proved to have been Incidents
and not causes of the massacres. Men
wro found themselves assailed by the
mob and happened to have arms In their
houses. In a number of cases defended
their lives and their families to the last
At Dtarbektr.where the Christians are
generally armed, they made a hard
fight for life and some 1,600 Moslems
are said to have been killed. Rut aside
from this one case, the destruction of
from ten to fifteen thousand Christians
has not cost the Turks more than two
or three hundred lives.
Plunder tho Main Object.
It is not within the purpose of this
paper to enter upon the question of the
responsibility for these massacres
mainly confined to the six provinces es
pecially mentioned, In the reform
scheme, so empty and so painfully
wrung from the porte. But If the ob
ject of the originators of thla massacre
were sensibly to diminish the Armenian
population of these provinces, the main
object of the men who did the work was
plunder. Many thousands who must
have perished, had the attack been a
blind outburst of fanatical fury, es
caped because It was an artificial move
ment, where cupidity was the chief mo
tive used to Induce men to engage In It.
And to the honor of the Turkish people
be it said, that In every one of the places
so far heard from in detail, cases oc
curred where Moslems sheltered Arme
nians and saved them from death. Near
Treblzonde they saved an entire vil
lage. But the very fact that plunder was
the chief Interest with the men engaged
In this crime, makes the position of the
survivors most precarious.
A very low estimate of the number
thus reduced to absolute want by the
loss of all their moveable property Is
200,000 souls, of whom three-fourths are
the wives and children of the ruined
traders or farmers.
A survey of the situation of these
people glvea the following elements ot
their desperate condition, all trade is
broken up. All agriculture in the de
vastated districts Is blotted out, for the
stock ' has. been carried off, and the
Implements generally burned. All the
poor semblance of manufacturing In
dustries In these districts have been
wiped out. At least. In numbers of
cases, the ruffians took delight In de
stroying machinery which they could
not use or earry away to sell. Thous
ands of houses and shops have been
burned. Every house or shop plund
ered was utterly emptied.
American Missions Pillaged.
Boston, Nov. 27. This evening Rev.
Judsort Smith, D. D., secretary of the
foreign department of the American
board, received a cablegram from Rep
resentatives of the board In Constanti
nople Via Phllllpopolls as fallows:

of a. horrible massacre .there. The

I r. BULLS WOULDN'T FIGHT.
Riot Caused by DtsvatUfted Spectators la

I fit Louis, Nov. 27. A special from the
City of Mexico says that a riot occurred
at the BUcaell rink yesterday In con
ftetttlence ot poor iihtliuf qualltlft of

to show their displeasure from the mo
ment the first bull made its appear
ance In the arena. As the second and
third animals proved equally bad. an
Individual hurled a plank at one of the
fighters In the ring.
This act served as a signal for the
excited nr Ititude to behave in a liko
manner, wltn the result that the ring
was strewn with chairs, cushions and
lumber, which had been torn from the
boxes and fences surrounding the colll
seum. The bull fighters ran for their
lives.. It was only on account of the
presence of the large body of soldiers,
who threatened to fire on the mob, that
the total destruction of the structure
was avoided. ,
William Wlllord Howard, Representative
of the Christian Herald. Has Failed to
Carry Out Uls Mission of Relief
Philadelphia, Nov. 27. An afternoon
paper says that William Wlllard How
ard, a newspaper man. Is believed to
have been murdered by the Kurds, near
Tlflls, In Persia.
Mr. Howard sailed from New York on
the steamship Teutonic late In Septem
ber as a representative of the "Chris
tian Herald" on a mission of relief to
the persecuted Armenians. He has not
been heard from for five weeks and
hope of his safety has been abandoned.
His destination was the city of Van, and
he wan due there more than four weeks
ago. His route lay through the most
dangerous districts of the Armenian
disturbances, and little doubt remains
that he has met -a ceuel death at th
hands of these savages, He had visit V.
Armenia before, and was the only o,,e
of fifteen newspaper correspondents
who started af the same time who
reached Van last December, when the
conflicts between the Armenian and
Kurds were in their inclpiency.
During the past summer the "Chris
tian Herald" raised a sum of $12,000
for, the relief of the suffering Armen
ians. This sum was to have been dis
tributed by the plucky journalist; but
it Is believed that he was killed near
the Persian frontier soon after entering
Armenia on his way to Van.
William Wlllard Howard Is known in
Philadelphia as an able writer and
Journalist. He has written for the pa
pers of this city, and once made a tour
of the state, writing a description of

tTtlca, N. Y.. Nov. 27. A 12-year-old
boy on horseback attempted to cross
the Central railroad tracks at Whltes

Washington, Nov. 27. Infomatlon of
a somewhat sensational character with
respect of the boundary dispute be
tween Venezuela and Great Britain has
leaked out her today. A letter written
by a member of President Crespo's cab
inet to a friend In this country dis
closes the fact that President Crespo's
absence from the Beat of government,
which had attracted attention, has a
purpose In view. He has been cau
tiously sounding the governors of the
d liferent provinces of the republic aa to
the forces which they can put into the
field In case of war. Assurances, it is
Bold, were given that a well-equipped
army of 100,000 men could be mobilized
In case the president should determine
upon a movement against the British
Guinea settlers on what Is claimed to be
Venezuelan territory, with a view of
driving them bnck to the boundary
which Venezuela asserts Is theirs, name
ly back of the Esslqulbo river. While
only a part of this force would he .n.c
easary for the purpose, the lav& army
of 100,000 men, Crespo believes, would
be necessBary to meet the counter at
tack which the British Guiana settlers,
with the aid of Great Britain, would
undoubtedly make In return for Vene
zuela's aggressive movement.
A member of congress from the
northwest who arrived in Washington
this morning, brings with him applica
tions from five cx-mllitary men of
prominence in his state for commis
sions In the Venezuela army in the
event of hostilities between that coun
try and Great Britain and it Ib as
serted that many ex-Confederates
stand ready to volunteer for service in
the Venezuela army If war should

republic and England.
