HOW EASILY THE ARMENIAN LIES
Any Story, However Preposterous, Is
Thongrlit Good Euoneli to Help
Along His People's Cause.
LONDON, Feb. 2L The special corre
spondent who -was sent out from London
to Armenia to investigate as to the
atrocities said to have been perpetrated
on the Armenians, and whose first re
port, in a letter sent from Tiflis, Russia,
was received here February 2, and cabled
to the United States that day, has made
a second report. This, like the first, was
posted at Tiflis. It is dated January 18.
In it the correspondent says:
"In the letter I wrote 10 days aso, giv
ing the result of some preliminary in
quiries that I had made at Constanti
nople, Sassoun, Kerasund, Trebizonde and
Tiflis, concerning the alleged atrocities
and the state of affairs generally In Ar
menia, I endeavored to convey some idea
of the difficulties that would be encoun
tered in prosecuting any sort of an in
vestigation or getting at the real facts
of the case. That I did not exaggerate
these difficulties Is apparent from further
information on the point, which I am now
in a position to supply.
"Take, to begin with, the cholera quar
antine which Is being enforced In various
portions of the sultan's domain in such
a manner as to draw a net around the
departments in Armenia in which the
atrocities are alleged to have occurred,
and to keep away from the scene of the
outrages all Independent investigators.
It is announced that cholera exists in
Van, Bitlis and Moosh, and that strict
quarantine regulations must therefore be
enforced. Now, it is certainly a peculiar
circumstance that cholera should have
happened to break out at this season of
the year in the region of the Sassoun
massacres and nowhere else in Asia
Minor. "Who Is to prove or disprove the
statement that the disease is raging in
these snowclad and practically inaccessi
ble mountain fastnesses? Even in Con
stantinople and Stamboul little or noth
ing is known by the public or by news
paper correspondents concerning" the chol
era outbreaks officially reported from
time to time In these cities. In the Turk
ish capital a medical officer reporting a
case of cholera receives double pay until
a clean bill of health is returned from
the affected district, and In a country like
Turkey it is not surprising if doctors find
symptoms of cholera in everything from
croup to typhoid fever.
"It is pretty thoroughly understood that

we have been during the past few days,
that an epidemis of cholera has suddenly
made its apearance in the region of the
Sassoun massacre, even a blind man can
see that it is meant to delay and obstruct
see that it is meant to delay and
obstruct the work of the Turkish
commission of inquiry. It is believed
here that the Turk3, forced to the
wall by the protest of the foreign delegates
on the commission, threw up the last ob
struction and hoisted the yellow flag upon,
it. Even a foreign delegation could not
ignore a cholera quarantine or find means
to evade it. It is argued thac if the Turks
have succeeded in repairing the damages
to the Sassoun villages there is no reason
why the commission should not be allowed
to visit the scene of the massacre and
flounder about In 10 feet of snow, if it
cared for that sort of thing, but the re
fusal of the Turks to allow anyone to
travel through the Sassoun country and
the timely quarantine suggests that the
money sent to rebuild the destroyed vil
lages has been stolen, or that the snow
was so deep before the money arrived that
nothing could be done. In that case, the
bodies of the butchered Christians are ly
ing under the snow. The Turks will take
good care that they reach the scene first
in the spring, and clear away all traces ofl
the massacre before indignant Christian
ity Insists on sending an independent in
vestigating committee. Even without the
cholera quarantine, It would be practically
impossible for the commission to make
any real headway until spring, owing to
the intense cold and the great amount of
snow in Armenia.
"The tales of oppression, outrage and
murder in other parts of Armenia-Turkey
continue to come out, and are reported
along the southern coast of the Black sea.
"If the detailed facts of the Sassoun
massacre are ever established, it must
be independently of Armenian testimony,
or their value may te seriously ques
tioned. In the first place, every Armenian
with whom it has been my lot to come
in contact seems to have a very vague
Idea of the value of accuracy and truth.
In the second place, in his anxiety to
make out a case against the Turks, he is
willing to publish as fact any grotesque
rumor that he chances to fall over in the
street. In the third place, he docs not
really know what actually took place in
the Sassoun mountains, but hl3 vanity
will not permit him to acknowledge it,
and so, to be up with the times and help
the cause of his people, he embellishes
the rumors he hears, and frequently says
that he is in secret communication with
friends in Moosh and Bitlis, who are har
boring Sassoun refugees. In this way,
while meaning to do good for the cause
of his people, he really does them harm,
for he effectually destroys his own value
as a witness. An Armenian came to me
lately and said:
" 'Seventeen hundred Armenians have
just now been massacred by Turks.'
" 'How do you know?'
" 'A refugee has just come in."
" 'You wish me to publish that as a
" 'Yes; why not? The people of England
and America, wish to know these things.
" 'Very well. Bring the refugee to me,
that I may write down his story.'
"The so-ealled refugee was not a refu
gee at ali, but simply a laborer from Ere
valn in search of work. His story amount
ed to this: In Erevaln he had heard a
man say that another in Etchmedzin had
said that 1700 people had been killed in
the Sassoun massacre. Another Armenian

Acrimonious Discussion on the
Indian School Question.
THE PACIFIC CABLE IN THE HOUSE
The Senate Amendment -to the Legis
lative Bill Rejected and the BUI
Sent to Conference.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 21. The senate
devoted itself to business today, and
would have completed the Indian appro
priation bill had not an acrimonious dis
cussion arose on the Indian school ques
tion. It brought out a wide range of de
bate on the separation of church and
state, in the course of which the expres
sions were general that the government
should entirely abandon denominational
schools. On an aye and no vote an ex
ception was made m the case of the In
dian school at Hampton, Va., and Lin
coln, Philadelphia, on the ground they
were not strictly denominational. The
sectarian question was still under con
sideration when the senate adjourned.
When consideration of the bill was re
sumed, the amendment concerning the
Cherokee Indians was changed so as to
make January 1, 1S9S, the time for re
moving intruders. The sectarian school
question came up when the item of In
dian schools was reached. Cockrell ex
plained that the appropriation committee
had thought to take out of the bill every
thing that was Catholic, everything that
was Protestant, and thus separate churcli
from state and eliminate the denomina
tional questions. He added:
"Catholic schools have heretofore been
emitted from the bill, and the committee
omitted the Lincoln school at Philadel
phia, and the Hampton school in Virginia,
because they were Protestant schools.
The bill also provides for the government
purchase of Indian schools now owned by
the various denominations."
Lodge said the secretary of the interior
had recommended the gradual adoption
of sectarian schools, and they had carried
out this policy. Hawley urged that in
abandoning sectarian schools there should
be no abandonment of Christian teach
ings in government schools, and added:
"I would rather have a school run by
Jesuits than to have on with no God in
it at all."
While Daniel was urging that no one
denomination controlled the board of
Hampton school, Call asked:
"Are they not all Protestants?"
"Yes," said Daniel, "because this is
largely a country of Protestants, and
there is no reason for disfranchising a
committee, said he was a Protestant of
tne Protestants, but he would not deny
to Catholics what he took for Protestants.
Seven Catholic schools were stricken rTDm
the house bill, and two Protestant schools
"Is there any evidence," asked Quay,
"that these schools are Protestant?"
"Yes; abundant evidence," responded
Cockrell. "They are in charge of Prot
estants, just as Catholic schools are in'
charge of Catholics."
He said that aP the Lincoln school at
Philadelphia a Catholic child who sought
to go to a Catholic church was told by a
teacher that "Episcopalian churches were
good enough for public pupils." In view
of the excitement throughout the country
on this subject, the committee had de
cided to make a clean sweep of both
Catholic and Protestant schools. Hoar
made the point that these two schools
were no more sectarian than were the
West Point and Annapolis academies.
p Pettigrew offered an amendment spe
cifically authorizing the Indian officers
to use $330,000 of the amounts appropri
ated In buying the abandoned schools.
Teller said there was no warrant for
the statement that the present policy of
abandoning .ectarip.n schools would elim
inate morality and Christianity from the
schools. They might not be taught Cal
vinism or other denominational doctrines,
but a broad Christianity. He added:
"And in my opinion the world would be
better if we had less denomination and
more broad Christianity in our churches."
Gallinger read a prepared speech on the
separation of church and state, and then
andayeand no vote was taken on abandon
ing the Hampton and Lincoln schools,
which was regarded as somewhat of a
test, and the abandonment failed, aye3

ingtonv and Wolcott 32.
Lodge offered an amendment for the
gradual abandonment of dencminatlonal
schools within the next three years. This
and other motions pending were not
acted upon when the bill was laid aside.
Before the Indian appropriation bill was
taken up, Turpie offered a resolution from
the committee on foreign relations, ex
pressing the high appreciation of the sen
ate of the honors accorded by the Mexican
government on the occasion of the obse
quies of the late United States Minister
Gray, and directing the secretary of state
to forward copies of the resolution to the
authorities of Mexico. The resolution was
A house joint resolution was passed for
the suspension of certain features of the
law authorizing the transportation of
goods through the United States to the
free zone of Mexico, so long as the Mexi
can free-zone law exists.
Allen indulged in a sharp and personal
criticism of the financial situation as an
incident to Harris resolution for a night
session to consider the bill to issue $7,000,
000 sewer bonds for Washington, D. C. He
"We are becoming bond crazy. The
president wants bonds; the secretary of
the treasury wants bonds; senators on
both sides want bonds."
Further on in his speech, Allen referred
to the reports that Teller and Vest were
populists, and he extended to them a cor
dial welcome to the populist ranks.
The income-tax question came up next,
on Gorman's motion to reconsider the sen
ate's approval of the conference report
of the bill amending the law. Gorman
said a singular clause had crept Into this
conference report that had not been con
sidered by either house. It changed the
law so far as exemptions from furnishing
a list of salaries of employes. Vest de
fended the conference changes, saying the
employes had asked for it- Gorman re
ferred to the remarkable attitude of the
other branch of congress on the question
of corporations, and compared the course
of the house on the tariff bill with the
course of the house conferees now. Chan
dler said this disclosed the serious dan
gers of conference committees, adding:
"Legislation is enacted which neither
branch of congress has considered. This
change was 'worked Into" a conference re
port in the interest of great corporations.
One class of these corporations employes
are about the halls of congress today la
boring to secure the passage of the pool
ing bill. Undoubtedly there Is a class of
employes the railroad corporations did not
wish to report with the list of salaries for
their work about congress."
On motion of Vest, the motion of Gor
man to reconsider the change was laid on
the table, ayes 57, noes 10.
The conference report on the pension ap
propriation bill was agreed to. It retaina
the provision making $6 the minimum for
pensions. It also retains the repeal of the
present law suspending the pensions of
persons living outside the country.
At 6 o'clock, after half an hour's party
obstruction and roll-calling, the senate
took a recess until S o'clock, to consider
the issue of Washington, D. C, sewer
The effort of Harris to- secure consider
ation of the district sewer bond bill at
a night session, in spite of the deter
mined opposition of a minority resolved
to defeat action, did not promise to be
productive of any better results than have
always attended such efforts, when at the
hour cf reassembling only 20 senators re
sponded to the roll call. The sergeant-at-arms
was directed to request the at
tendance of absentees, but the active ser
vices of that officer and of many depu
ties were unavailing to get together the
number of senators necessary to con
stitute a quorom 15. The populist senator
from Nebraska (Allen), who had made
such a bitter speech against the sewer
bond bill in the senate morning session,
was in his seat, apparently prepared,
with the aid of others who agreed with
him, to resist all attempts on the part
of Harris to pass the bill; so that even
if a quorum were pbtained, a withholding
of their votes would defeat the purpose
of the night session. At 9 P. M., 36 sena
tors had arrived, but several of those
had again left the capitol. At 9:10 Har
ris rose and asked unanimous consent to
make a few remarks, to which no objec
tion was made. He said:
"I would be glad to say a few words
in explanation of the step which I pro
pose to take. I asked for this night ses
sion to consider a bill, on the passage of
which depends largely the sanitary condi
tion and health of the people of this city
and district. It is a bill than which there
can be rtone of greater importance to this
locality, and in view of the fact that con
gress 13 the legislative department for
300,000 people who have no voice in the
government, who rely on the congress of
the United States, and on congress only,
for such legislation as may be necessary
for thtir prosperity, I regret more than I
can find words to express that there is
so little interest felt that an occasion
such as this should meet the experience
we are having tonight. But I will not
take the responsibility of making those
senators who have kindly come here from
a &ense of duty, remain longer in the
fruitless and honeless task .of trvlnir to
do now adioura."
Kyle said: "Before the senate adjourn3
I would like to say one word. I do not
wish to place myself in the way of prog
ress of this bill; I realize the importance
of it fully as much as the senator from
Tennessee. I realize that many diseases
are prevalent in various parts of the city
m consequence of the fact that we do not
have a proper sewerage system. The only
difference between those in the opposition
and the element represented by the sena
tor from Tennessee is in regard to paying
the bill. The senator wishes to issue the
bonds. We do not wish to issue bonds.
We are willing to pay the cost out of the
treasury. We are willing to issue silver
certificates. We are willing to do-almost
anything if we can come to an agree
ment. And as all legislative measures
are compromised in the end, I believe that
the friends of the measure should meet
us half way, as we are willing to meet
Teller here interposed and said that
there was nobody present to give unani
mous consent. He noticed that the offi
cial reporter was making a report of the
proceedings; but he might as well make a
report of a town meeting. Nothing of this
could go into the record, except the mere
fact of the senate not having a quorum.
He objected to any further discussion.
The senate was dropping into a method
of doing business that would rise to
plague it hereafter. Here uandler ob
jected amid laughter, to Teller proceed
ing any further. The motion to adjourn
was put, and the senate adjourned until
tomorrow at 11 A. M.
In the House.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 21. The house de
voted most of the day to the consideration
of the senate amendment to the consu
lar and diplomatic appropriation bill, ap
priating J3OO.O0O for the construction of
a cable to the Hawaiian islands. Ryan,
Bartlett, Sickles, democrats, of New York,
spoke in favor of the amendment, which
was defeated by a vote of 114 to 132. Six
teen democrats voted for the cable. The
bill was then sent to further conference.
The conference report on the bill to pro
vide for the examination and classifica
tion of certain lands in the Northern Pa
cific grant in Montana and Idaho was
agreed, and a short time was passed in
the consideration of the general deficiency
bill, the last of the appropriation bills to
be passed by the house. The remainder
of the day, after 3:30, was devoted to eu
logies on the life and public services of
the late Senator Stockbridge, of Michigan.
After the house had agreed to the sen
ate amendments to the bill authorizing
the construction of a bridge across the
Missouri river at Sioux City, la., consid
eration of the senate amendment to the
diplomatic and consular appropriation bill,
appropriating $300,000 to aid In construc
tion of a submarine cable from the United
States to the Hawaiian islands, was re
sumed. Hooker opened the debate in op
position to the appropriation. He con
cluded: "By the terms of this amendment, the
government is to own, control and oper
ate this Hawaiian cable. Such a propo
sition has never been made before. Pri
vate enterprise should construct this cable
if it so desired."
Storer deprecated making this matter a
party question, but said he realized it was
only in this way the chairman of the com
mittee on foreign affairs hoped to defeat
this project. Party lines, he added, had
been broken in the senate when this
amendment was voted into the bill. He
called attention to the necessity for the
cable, as expressed in two of President
Cleveland's messages, and the recom
mendations of Mr. Bayard, when he was
secretary Gf state. "That was when there
was a democrat at the head of that de
partment. Things are different now that
there is a secretary in the state depart
ment who rises above or below party, ac
cording as he is viewed. Still, if the
administration Is now opposed to this
cable, the manly thing for Mr. Cleveland
to do will be to send a message to con
gress, saying he has changed his mind.
A submarine cable is now as much a ne
cessity to the navy as the electric signal
which connects the pilothouse with the
engine-room of a battleship."
Draper said he favored this cable as a
preliminary step toward the annexation

TWICE WITHOUT FRDIT
Two Ballots for Senator Again
Taken at Salem Yesterday.
THE CHANGES OF NO SIGNIFICANCE
Indications Were Last Xisht That
the Opposition 'otc "Would Today;
Go to Fulton of Astoria.
Two ballots were again taken at Salonl
yesterday. The two showed the same
vote. There wore several changes from
the last ballot taken Wednesday, but they
possessed no significance The opening
ballot and those taken this week, ao far
as the candidates now before the conven
tion are concerned, resulted:
W 0 1
SALEM, Feb. 21. The Dolph forces are
not at all perturbed by the loss of tho
votes of Speaker Moores nad Senator
Hobson. Mcores will vote for Dolph any
time his vote will elect him, and will not
be governed in his vote at any rate by the
oppositon managers, lie would vote for
William3 if the opposition would continue
to do so, and if their choice i3 unsatisfac
tory to him, he will return to Dolph. The
opposition has been making frantic efforts
to -wheel its ranks Into line for Lord,
but it is thought without much success.
The concentration on Williams was orig
inally undertaken merely to hold some
conservative members, and they are no
more favorable to Lord than ever. The
indications are that the opposition will
go to Fulton tomorrow, but some do not
like him any better than Lord. They may
have to go back to Williams, and if so,
it will demonstrate their incapability ot
accomplishing anything. The course of
the Statesman in coming out for Lord is
not regarded as of any moment. There is
probably no paper in the state whose edi
torial utterances carry les3 weight. There
will be a ballot in join convention Satur
day, in case no election is had tomorrow.
The Joint Ballot.
SALEM, Feb. 21. The numerous rumors
of senatorial combinations which have

Another ballot was at once ordered. IC

In explaining his vote. Beach made Jt
rambling remark in his dry humorous
way, telling a funny story, and winding
up without any connection with his
speech by voting for Dolph as he has all
along. The vote in detail on the two bal

HEPPNER, Feb. 21. Three petitions and
a number of private dispatches were sen J
to Representative Boothby today, In an
swer to several letters that he had writ
ten to prominent republicans here, asking
whether it was their wish that he should
vote for Dolph the last day of the ses
sion, provided there was no choice before
that time. Out of 10 letters received, 9
made answer to vote for Dolph. The three
petitions were signed by the most promi
nent republicans of the county. Mr. Booth
by may rest assured that whenever ho
casts his vote for Dolph he will please a
very larse majority of the republican
party of Morrow county, and that he dis
pleases them very much in not doing so.
Had Mr. Boothby made this inquiry at
the beginning of the session he would
have cast his vote for Dolph from the
first, If he is as honest In his intentions
as the republicans give him credit for.
From. Dolph to Lord.
SALEM', Feb. 21. The Statesman to
morrow will abandon Dolph and come out
strongly for Lord as a candidate upon
whom all parties can unite. It says he Is
for coinage of American sliver Into money,
worth its face, whatever that may mean.
Held Vp a Freight Train.
CHILLICOTHE, Ohio, Feb. 2h About
midnight last night, a freight train on the
Baltimore & Ohio Southwestern railroad
was held up near Vigo, 12 miles east of
here, by three masked men, armed with
shotguns, and the trainmen were relieved
of all their valuables. It is the general
opinion that the bandits mistook the
freight for the "Turkey" train, a fast
freight, due about that time, and which:
carries an express car.
Probably Professor Heath.
EMPORIA, Kan., Feb. 2L The chief of
police of Syracuse, who telegraphed to
the sheriff of Lyon county for an accur
ate description of the man Heath, held
here for attempted forgery, now states
he is probably Professor H. H. Heath,
formerly of Cornell university, who is
wanted at Syracuse for forging a $430
draft in February, 1892.
