London, A p ril 18.— The D aily T ele­
graph has a dispatch dated Hassank-
aleh A p ril 9, via Kars A p ril 15, which
says that ow ing to the representations
I of the powers, the porte has been tak­
ing energetic measures which, as has
B®611 proved, have prevented a series of
massacres. The Chrstians in Erzeroum,
the dispatch says, were terror-stricken
j the night of the 2d inst., on account of
a report that more than a hundred
Turkish soliders had attempted to leave
their barracks and begin butchering the
1 Christian inhabitants. The report was
j true, and a massacre was prevented
only by the action of the commander
I of the garrison, Shah Pasha, who at
the first sign of an outbreak ordered
*he troops to return to their quarters
immediately. The command was not
obeyed, whereupon Shah Pasha ordered
a volley to be fired by the troops who
remained faithful, and thirteen of the
recalcitrants were shot dead on the
spot. Precautions against a massacre
\ Rave been taken throughout the prov­
ince, but a sense of insecurity prevails.

Washington, A p r il 1 6 .— Secretary
Herbert today decided to award to the
Columbia iron works, o f Baltimore, the
contract for building the three torpedo
boats. The firm was the lowest bidder
„„„ ,
, ,
at * 9 .,000 for each boat. They w ill be
built on designs drawn by the navy de­
partment. The competition fo r this
work was keen and brought out bids
from a ll parts o f the country, and a
strong effort was made to secure a dis­
tribution of the contracts and the ac-
ceptance o f original designs furnished
by some of the bidders. This last
proposition was referred to a special
board, which reported, however, in
favor of the designs, but favored a dis­
tribution so as to secure a faster but
more expensive boat proposed by the
Union iron works, of San Francisco.
The last suggestion was not accepted
by the secretary.
The department has been keeping a
watchful eye upon the performance of
some of the new English torpedo boats,
which have attained the marvelous
speed o? twenty-eight and twenty-nine
knots an hour, and having disposed of
the contracts for three boats above re-
ferred to, Secretary Herbert has taken
up the subject o f designs for the other
ltoats authorized by the last appropria­
tion bill. H e has given suggestions
that these shall be no larger all around
than their predecessors, which are to
be of 188 tons displacement and twen­
ty-four and one-half knots speed. The
new boats for which bids w ill be asked
later on w ill be o f about 180 tons.
This is 40 tons smaller than tlie fastest
the English have afloat, yet they w ill
be required to show a speed of twenty-
eight knots per hour. In v ie w of the
favorable terms secured for these three
boats, just awarded to the Columbia
iron works, it is believed that these
three flyers can be built w ith in the ap­

Washington, A p ril 16.— Secretary
Lamont has decided upon the main fea­
tures of the official exercises authorized
by congress in dedication of the Chick-
amauga and Chatt&nooga national m ili-
tarv park. The ceremonies w ill begin
on the battlefield of Chickamauga Sep-
tember 19, and w ill comprise the offic-
ial announcement of the opening of the
park by the w ar department, represent-
ing the government; tw o orations by
speakers of national prominence, and
the proper m ilitary display. The f o l ­
low in g day exercises in continuation of
the dedication, relating to the battle
of Lookout Mountain and Missionary
Ridge, w ill be held at Chattanooga,
w ith a somewhat sim ilar programme.
In case of rain a ll exerc ises w ill take
place at Chattanooga under a cover of
adequate capacity, which w ill be pro-
vided as a prudential measure. The
secretary o f w ar w ill arrange to have
all the armies represented in the battles
participate in the dedication by set­
tin g apart the night of the 20th to the
armies o f the Potomac and Northern
V irgin ia. The regular army w ill be
represensted by the lieutenant-general
and a detachment of troops. The So­
ciety of the A rm y o f the Cumberland
w ill hold its regular annual reunion at
Chattanooga the evening o f September
18 preceding the dedication, and to this
a ll official visitors and representatives
o f other army societies w ill be invited.

Washington, A p ril 15. — United
States Consul-General de Kay, at B er­
lin, believes that an Am erican physi­
cian has discovered means o f curing
consumption, lnpus and perhaps cancer.
In his report to the state department he
says the coming medical congress is
lik ely to give considerable attention to
the discovery made by Dr. Lonis W ald-
stein, a native o f N ew Y ork, which is
announced in a German medical paper
as the extraordinary action o f minnte
injections o f pilocarpine, a chrystal-
ized extract from the B razilian jabor-
andi plant, into the lymphatic system.
This acts favorably on patients whom
serum does not cure.
The key to the discovery is this: By
successive injections of minute doses of
pilocarpine in the veins he arrives at a
gradual stimulation o f the lymphatic
system. That system increases w h ile
corpuscules in the blood, in some way
not agreed upon certainly, overcome
and render harmless those poisonous
particles in the blood that produce dis­
ease. The discoverer strongly advises
physicians to try pilocarpine in early
stages of consumption, and, indeed, in
all diseases in volvin g the lymphatic
system. He has satisfied him self that
it forms a trustworthy test for the
presence o f tuberculosis in an animal.
The report closes w ith the statement
that lupus o f twenty-two years’ dura­
tion, regarded as incurable, was re­
lieved im mediately after the first injec­
tion, and is now almost healed.
Trade moves along regularly with few
changes in prices. The steamer brought
up a very full load of early stuff. Most
vegetable prices are higher, due to
scarcity in California caused by rain in
that state. Cauliflower, asparagus and
cabbage are higher than for three steam­
ers. Coal oil advanced ‘£c in cans and
lc in barrels and tanks. Eggs cleaned
up readily at the printed quotation.
