Cuban Eesolutions Sent Back
THE MOTION MADE BY SHERMAN
His Object to Modlfly Them in Certain
Respects Is Anxious to Secure
Washington, March 23. Sherman
gave notice in the senate that he' would
move to recommit the Cuban resolutions
to the conference committee. Sherman
said the object was to secure such a modi
fication of them as will satisfy the scru
ples of some of the senators who are op
posing the resolutions, and to secure'a
vote at an early day.
At 2 o'clock Mills introduced resolu
tions directing the president to request
Spain to give local self-government to
Cuba, and in the event of Spanish re
fusal the president is authorized to take
possession of Cuba, using military and
naval forces for that purpose, and hold
ing it until the people of Cuba can es
tablish local self-government.
- A vote was about to be taken on Sher
man's resolution when Allen interrupted
with a speech on a general subject.
At 8 o'clock the motion of Senator
Sherman to refer the Cuban resolutions
to the conference committee was adopted
without division. "
The senate at once turned to other
business, while the galleries did not
realize for some time that the Cuban re
solutions had been sent back, to confer
ence. The chair announced Sherman,
Morgan and Lodge as the senate confer
ees. The legislative appropriation bill was
then taken np.
HORRIBLE STORY AGAIN TOLD.
An Armenian Refuge Tells of tue Has
. sacre in Marsovan.
New York, March 23. Mharim Dal
majian, an Armenian refugee who re
cently escaped from Turkey and has just
arrived here, said last night:
"The massacre in Marsovan occurred
November last. The first thing done on
the morning of the massacre was to put
a guard of Turkish soldiers around the
American college. This was to protect
the college from attack. Two or three
houses in the town in which naturalized
American citizens lived were also guard
ed. The Turkish soldiers began by kill
ing in cold blood all the Armenians
whom they found in the market. They
did this partly with guns, partly with
bayonets and partly with hatchets.
"Then they killed all the Armenians
whom they found in the streets. They
did not, however, enter any Armenian
houses, except four, where several
women were assaulted and killed.
"Meanwhile each of the five mosques
in the town bad a Turk crying out every
few minutes that the Armenians were
sacking the mosque and killing; the
Turks.' This added greatly to the pub
lie excitement and added the Turkish
populace to the soldiery.
"Over 1000 persons were killed in all
the massacres in Marsovan. It was
freely acknowledged by the soldiers that
the Armenians were killed by direct or
ders from Constantinople. There are
altogether 600,000 Armenians under
Turkish dominion and if they remain
under that rule for 10 years longer tbey
will be exterminated or converted to
"Between 30,000 and 40,000 Armen
ians have been massacred up to the pres
ent time. The governor of the dfstrict
is now busy arresting all the young Ar
menian men whom the soldiers or police
find in the streets. The result of this
massacre is that all the young ocen are
keeping in the houses and sending oat
the old men to buy food.
