"Washington, Jan. 25. Mnny mc-
morlalH coneernlniiio Turkish and
Armenian question-were presented to
the senate Friday. This led Hill to
ask what had become of the resolution
for energcntlcnctlonby the president.
Culloni, who reported the Turkish
resolution from tho committee on
foreign relations, said he desired to
speed tho best posslblo notion, and
later in tho day would nsk for a vote
on the resolution. There was n brief
flurry when Cullom sought to fcccurc
tho passage of a Joint resolution
amending the act relative to the
Bloomlngton, 111., public buildings.
Allen said there seemed to bo n little
ring In tho senate as to favorable
action on public buildings. Tne enst
secured public buildings but tho
states of tho far west did not.
Onlligcr protested against tho ex
travagance of Allen's language and
there was an extended debate an to
the sections which received public
Allen yielded and tha resolution
Tho Turkish-Armenian resolution
was then called up by Cullom. He
spoke of the condition prevailing
In Turkey. A massacre of IriftdConts"
unparalcllcd for ages had been perpe
trated. Evldenco of bloody encount
ers was given by all clnssess nnd
nationalities until it was beyond tho
slightest doubt. Tho Turkish army
had bayonted, robbed, murdered and
flayed nlivo the people of Armenin.
There wns'no war, but a pltless,merc(
lcss tornado of ruin, bloodshed nnd
The demon fanaticism bad been let
loose. There was a responsibility
somewhere. It did not rest with the
ruler of Turkey, the sultan. Hack of
this were tho disputes of the coun
tries of tho European nlllauce, seek
ing territorial advantages. Tho sul
tan was but u pupct In there hands.
It was a matter of regret nnd embar
rassment that tho policy of tho United
States was such ns to prevent sending
a licet to Turkish waters to put a stop
to the bloody rule prevailing, but
Europe had assumed the obligation of
the protection of Armenia. Tho pco
plo of tho United States were Inten
sely Interested In seeing tho obliga
tion executed and tho purpose of these
resolutions was to plead with tho
greatest earnestnes for tho protec
tion of Armenia.
It was amusing to the pcoplo of tho
United States to witness tho appal
ling slaughter and to sco the indif
ference of tho Christian power.
Thero was n double obligation on
England, yet nothing hud been done
to stay tho hand of tho sultan, except
byfrultless diplomatic correspondence.
The powers appeared to bo waiting
for the dissolution of the Ottoman
Cullom expressed a doubt "as tho
reported alliance between Russia aud
Turkey. The United states had spoken
in the name of humanity In theaffaira
of Greece and nungary. No event for
centuries called so loudly to the civil
ized world us this slaughter In Turkey,
the greatest, the senator believed, In
the history of the world.
Blanchnrd said that for more than a
year the world had been shocked by
the massacres in Turkey, and, in the

Jameson marched townrds Johan

stage people 1110 enabled to study
and understand human nature ns few

them to witness Its variations as

pleasure to them to meet pcoplo In the
light of n friend -to have somo one
evince an Interest hi them aside from

hi the cordial ircoptlon accorded a
woman by it 11 actress who has spent
a couple of weeks in ourclty when tho

a womnn, not with reference to her

reason that sho seeks to appear

other women nro curious as to herper-

them to state nt once that, In tho first
placo sho was neatly nnd becomingly
dressed. Her faco, which is of tho
Ingenue type, childishly Innocent In

Mrs. Chnso has been on tho stage
tho greater part of tho tlmo for seven
teen years, and has travelled exten
sively In tho East mid South, but has
never been 011 this coast before. She
prefers tho cllmnto of tho South, nnd
says Oregon weather makes hor sleepy.
"But oh!" said she, "they are hot

tho men sought tho acquaintance of a
young lady in n lty whoro wo played,
and hor brother learned of It nnd was
going to kill him. Wo had to sneak
him out tho back door of tho opera
