TEN THOUSAND DIE.
Butchery In Syria Reaches Appalling
Degree and Craze Spreads.
Constantinopple, April 22. Massa
cres that started last week in Adana
have spread along the Syrian coast and
toward the interior as far as the vila
yet of Aleppo, and fanaticism has led
to wholesale butchery throughout this
entire district. It is conservatively
estimated that over 10,000 have been
akin, the majority of this number be
ing women and children, wbohavo been
slaughtered in droves.
Religious uprisings have broken out
in Antioch and Direjik, and foreigners
have taken refuge In the British con
sulates. Fifty men from the British
warship Diana have been landed at Al
exandre tta, but their distance from the
scene of the latest outbreaks seems to
have no effect in stopping the ravages
of tho religion-crazed slayers.
The situation at Alexandretta is crit
ical. Panic everywhere prevails.
Thousands of refugees are crowding
the city, which is patrolled by marines
from the British cruiser Diana.
GALE KILLS AND MAIMS.
Ohio Lake front Swept by a Sudden
Cleveland, April 2. Three persons
were killed, six perhaps fatally hurt,
at least 60 less seriously injured and
$1,000,000 worth of property destroyed
in a tornado that swept through Cleve
land and Northern Ohio yesterday.
The storm arose suddenly and lasted
just five minutes. At 12:30 the sun
was shining brightly. At 12:33 the
city was dark. From the northeast of
tho lake came a CC-milo gale and heavy
rain. People were blown off their feet
and hurled against buildings in many
places, to be struck down by bricks
and timbers that filled the sir.
Roofs were lifted off houses, walls
hurled down, strongly-braced smoke
stacks picked up and chimneys demol
ished. Twelve school buildings were
damaged. Many pupils had remark
able escapes, but none were seriously
hurt. Firemen and policemen turned
out to assist the people whose homes
had been wrecked. So seriouly was
the telephone service crippled that It
was impossible to get connection with
either tho police or fire headquarters.
Merger Suit In Court.
San Francisco, April 22. Suit
against the Union Pacific and the South

where the lines of the two roads form

in nearly every large city of the United
Stater when the two roads own physi

SULTAN GIVES IN.
Surrenders All Power to Parliament

Constantinople. April 23. Tho
Young Turks have won another vic
tory over Su tan Abdul llamld, but
whether the sultan will remain as sov
ereign is yet to be decided, although
he has offered to Place the allalrs or

MASSACRES SPREAD NORTH.
New Regions Affected by Fanatical
Wave of Slaying.
Constantinople, April 23. The
spread of tho wave of massacre and
death to Erzcrum, the principal town
of Turkish Armenia, in a district far
removed to the north from that hither
to affected by tho wave of fanaticism,
is leading to the conclusion here that
the outrages are being inspired by the
sultan, more or less directly, as a coun
ter move in politics to tho constitu
tional movement of the Young Turks.
Weight is given this conclusion by
the chango in feeling on the part of
tho Armenians, who are now ceasing
their enthusiastic hailing of the con
stitutional government, and appealing
attain for the laws of the Sheri and the
sultan. That the Young Turks have
been very friendly with tho Christians
Is a matter of record; and the fact
that the fanatical Moslems have been
roused to attack Christians is regarded
as an indirect way of bringing pressure
upon the Young Turks by many in
well-informed political circles. Horri
ble as this Idea is, it is fast gaining
ground, and the behavior of tho Ar
menians themselves in abandoning
their appeals to tho Young Turks and
placing reliance on the sultan is fur
