BRYCE GIVES MORE
New York, March 7. Massacres of
Armenians were inspired by the de
sire of the Turkish ruling class to
eliminate- from the empire all sects
and creeds except that of Mohammad,
according to Lord Bryce, former
British ambassador, in a cable mes
sage to the American committee for
Armenian and Syrian relief, made
"During these recent massacreas
when ever any Christian would turn
Mohammedan he was spared," said
Lord Bryce in his message. "Many a
Christian child was torn from its
parents to be brought up as a Mussel-
man. Thousands of Armenian Chris
tian girls were sold in the market or
distributed among Turkish officers to
be imprisoner for life in Turkish har-
ers and there forced into Mohamme
'But many more thousands of Ar
menians, women as well as men, were
offered their choice between Christ
and Mohammed and when they re
fused Mohammed were shot or else
drowned forthwith' For days and
days together the bodies of Christian
women who had, thus perished were
seen floating down the Euprrates."
LEi: COTNER HAS BAD FALL.
Lee Cotner, one of the employes in
the freight car repair department at
the shops, this morning was the vic
tim of a serious fall from the roof of
a box car on which he was working.
Mr. Cotner was handling a heavy
thirty-four foot plank and while on
top of the car became over-balanced,
with the result that he fell to the
uround, quite a distance below, strik
ing the ground with much force and
knocking him unconscious for several
minutes. The heavy plank fell on top
of Mr. Cotner and inflicted several
gainful bruises on his legs and body
me cniet injury, however, seems to
have been to his back and hips, which
compe'ls him to get around with the
aid of a crutch. He will be compelled

result is double work for the kidneys,
