that there is a possibility that they will
remain an independent organization.

speaking In Portland Mi the interest of
Armenian relief, made her opening ad
dress yesterday afternoon at a meet
ing of the Portland Woman's club held
at the Alultnomah hotel. Slight and
young, of a rarely beautiful type; great
dark eyes under whose sweeping lashes
burn the beauty and the suffering of
the little nation which has been crushed
under the Turkish heel. Airs. Lamson
held her audience with a dramatic ap
peal for the bondaged boys and girls

the nation freed.
"Armenia stands before us as the
heroine of the world," said Airs. Lam

she proclaims the invincibility of her
soul by retaining her religion her
language and her racial traditions out
of the awful torturing which she has
endured at the hands of the Ottoman
government since 1375.
"Armenia's sorrows in defense of the
Christian religion have paid the toll in
martyrs throughout every century of
the Christian era. Thirty millions of
my people have given their lives in de
fense of Christianity. To us there is
no peace until every Alohammedan
house is opened and made to give over
every Armenian boy and girl who has
been bound into a slavery which in
many cases is worse than death.
"We ask your money not to save the
old people. They have gone, defending
their Christ; but we must save these
children to people the Armenia which
shall be free forever of Turkish and
Prussian dominion."
