Londoit, Dec. 3. Dr. G. Thouraaian,
one of the Armenian physicians at
Ilerrick college, Marsovan, Asia
Minor, who was sentenced to death
and forced to undergo terrible tor
tures, bnt was finally released through
the intervention of Great Britain in
July, 1893, furnished to the press to
day fresh details of Turkish out
rages in Armenia, as follows: "The
chief of police of Moosh, which la
the ' headquarters of the Sassoun
district, went with a number of gend'
armes to the village of Tchurig
and nailed the head roan and some
others head downward to posts, beat
them and drenched them alternately
with' hot and cold water. He then
attempted to assault the wife of one
of the victims, but she killed him
with a knife, whereupon the gnnd
'armes made a general attack upon the
peasants. A stubborn struggle re
sulted, in which many of the peas
ants were wounded and thirty of
them taken to prison. The whole
village was charged with treason.
"The Armenian villages on the
plains of Moosh and Ititlis have been
fired and their streets made to run
with blood. The villages of Kozloo
and Sheik-Aghoob have been sacked
by Kurds and young girls made cap
tives. At another village a miller
was burned alive. At Hanzasheik
three Armenians were killed. This
is only a daily tale of the horrors in
these villages. If these details
come iroiu villages on me open
plain, what must the truth be in
distant places in the mountains? In
September 112 Kurds appeared in the
village of liaghezig and plundered it
The next day they raided the village
ofFaroagh. In Daghveran two youths
were openly butchered before the
eyes of their helpless relatives. I
could give pages of such horrors.
"None or these wrongs have been
redressed, nor will they be so long
as Bahri, himself a Kurd, remains
governor-general of Van. He Is the
greatest enemy of the Armenian race.
When the , porte tried to binder the
Armenians from emigrating to Rus
sia and Persia, this ferocious fanatic
expimneu inai me pone couia get ria
of the Christians and at the same time
get their land. Recently he made a
tour of one of the districts and con
fiscated all of the property of absent
Armenians, including those who had
gone away on business. Those who
returned were thrown into prison."
The Pope Making- Investigations.
Rome, Dec. d. The pope has re
ceived an account of the Armenian
atrocities and is taking steps to ob
tain further details. His holiness has
also received urgent appeals from
Armenians in several places asking
him to use his good office in their be
half with the sultan.
Appeals to the Vatican in addition
have been made from England, under
the belief that none of the powers are
willing to assume the responsibility
of opening negotiations with other
powers for joint intervention, and
also in the belief that it is impossible
for the pope to remain indifferent to
the sufferings of the Armenian Christ
iana. ARCHBISHOP IRELAND TALKS.
The Noted 1'relate Dicumm the result
of the I ecent Election.
St. Paul, Minn., Dec. 3. Arch
bishop Ireland, who returned to
day from the East,, denied em
phatically the story of his re
ported securing a large loan while in
the East for" the payment of the in
debtedness of the St. Paul diocese.
He refused to discuss the attack on
him by Bishop McQuaid. Of politics,
he said: "The election was aBplendid
thing for the business men uf Una
country in every respect. Confidence
has been restored. The defeat of
the Populists is a blessed thing for
the Northwest, particularly from a
business standpoint. Had Populism
succeeded every penny ot outside
money invested here would have been
withdrawn. The victory in New
York city will have its good results,
for coming at that time it
emphasizes for , every city and
every district the necessity
for good and pure government. Most
men are over-patient and allow things
to go too far, but at the supreme
moment they .always wake up and do
the right thing. The nplitical victory
of the last month is the best vindica
tion we could have of popular govern
ment. The people can be trusted."

CASSIUS M. CLAY AGAIN.
The Venerable Kentorklan Establishes St
Reign of 1 error A boat Ills Hon.
Lexikotok, Ky., Dec. 8. General
Cassins M. Clay, the venerable fire
eater who recently married ft girl of
15 years, is causing a regular reign of
terror in the vicinity of bia planta
tion. He has bought fine rifles and
shotguns as well as revolvers and
has armed all of the men on the
place. Wednesday one of the men
fired at Ira Million and the next day
Clay and his adherents went to the
house of R. C Moore, the old over
seer of the plantation, to kill him, on
the ground that he was plotting to
abduct the child wife.
When the county authorities heard
of the reign of terror that Clay was
responsible for in his neighborhood,
County Attorney Jere Sullivan in
formed General Clay's youngest son,
Lenney, who lives at Staunton, in
Powell county, of the way his father
was doing and urged him to go at
once to Whitehall and try to quiet his
father's fears regarding the abduc
tion of Dora. The old general is
very fond of Lenney, and when
be arrived Wednesday afternoon
at Whitehall the father was not only
glad to see him, but listened care
fully to his statement of the case, at
whic'u he showed that the child wife
was in no danger of being abducted,
and that nobody wanted to do him
any bodily harm. He remained with
bis father all night and before he left

that he would disarm his men and

about $8,000,000 than the larger quan

COOK GIVES WARNING.
Leader of the Celebrated Gang Notifies
Citizens of Deep Font to Move.
Guthrie, Ok., Dea 3. Great excite
ment exists in the little town of
Deep Fork, Ind. Ter. Some days ago
six citizens of that place gave the
Indian territory deputies a clue of
the whereabouts of Outlaw "Skeeter,"
and his capture followed within four
days. Wednesday morning big pla
cards surmounted by skulls and cross
bones were found nailed to the re
spective homes of the six informers.
The placards, written in a crabbed
scrawly hand, stained with dirt, and
signed "By order of Bill Cook," read
"We have spotted you. You worked
our confidence and leaked, when you
wanted us to do sum devilment in
through off suspickon 'Skeeter' was
yer frien.. We intend to kill you be
for the dep mur get up take warning,
by order Bill Cook."
Many regard the ominous notices
the work of practical jokers, but
nevertheless four of the six citizens
have left the nlaue.

Guthrie, Ok., Dec. 2. An oyster
Bupper was given by some church
ladies near David, Ind. Ter., yester
day and among the guests were Jesse
Bibbler and Charles Beck. During
the progress of the supper Beck grew
enraged because the serving ladies
paid more attention to Bibbler than
to himself, and insisted that Bibbler
was getting the cream of the oysters.
Bibbler gallantly took the ladies
part, when Beck, exasperated,
whipped out a gun and fired four
shots at Bibbler, killing him dead.

I'rlvately Date Takes the Oath
of Office at the Capitol la the
Presence of Large As
sembly of People.
Montgomery, Ala., Dea 3. -From
laylight this morning the streets of
Alabama's capital resounded with the
tramp of armed men and the roll of
Irums, and the early morning sun
glistened upon hundreds of bristling
bayonets, all of which marked the ar
rival and presence of the state militia
to participate in the inauguration of
Governor-elect Hv. C Oates. Each of
the soldiers, at the direct orders of
Governor Jones, carried forty rounds
of bail cartridges for his rifle, with
other rounds close at hand. As they
marched steadily up the streets in
close order there was show in their
manner and bearing of readiness for
whatever might come.
Hundreds of countrymen, attired in
rough clothes and slouch hats, also
came to town in small groups during
the past twenty-four hours by train,
wagon and mules. They did not ap
pear to be angry, made no boasts or
threats, but gazed rather strangely
on the militia. They were here at
Captain Kolb's request to see him
sworn in as governor without the
form of law. At Kolb's house a long
secret caucus of Populist leaders was
be Id this morning.
Governor Jones did not anticipate
trouble but was prepared to stamp it
out promptly if it should appear. "I
have ordered the militia to carry ball
cartridges so as to be ready for action
As the morning wore on there ap-
E eared to be an increase in the num
er of countrymen in the city, bat
none carried arms outwardly. The
militiamen ostentatiously showed
themselves around the streets with
their guns and their ammunition
belts filled with cartridges.
Governor Jones and staff were at the
state house early in the morning,
busily encaged in making prepara
tions to protect the inaugural ser
vices from violence. At 10:30 the
militiamen began to assemble at the
At a caucus of the Eolbites last
night it was decided to assemble
at the state house at 1 o'clock to-day,
one hour in advance of the inaugura
tion. Some difficulty was experienced
in getting an official to administer
the oath, two Populist judges declin
ing to act on the ground that they
would lose their offices by
being impeached for treason.
At 11 o'clock a message was
received at the state house that Eolb
had taken the gubernational oath in
a down town office and was coming to
the state house to make his speech.
Governor Jones issued orders to give
free access to the state house grounds
to all as long as those who should en
ter should behave in an orderly man
ner. Kolb was sworn in by James B.
Powell, a justice of the peace, in the
law office of Warran Reese and at
the same time the oath was admin
istered to J. D. Fauville as secretary
of state; W. T. Lynch, as auditor; J.
P. Oliver, superintendent of education
and Warran R ese, jr., as attorney
THE GOVERNOR LAYS DOWN THE LAW.
Kolb and his cabinet then pro
ceeded to the state house for the pur
pose of making a speech. He was
followed by several hundred of his
adherents. They marched up the
state house steps through the ranks
of the assembled militia and took
their places beside the identical por
tico upon which Jefferson Davis was
declared president of the Coufederate
In a few minutes Governor Jones
sent for Captain Kolb, who was es
corted into his presence by Lieuten
ant Irwin of the regular army. "I
understand, sir," said Governor Jones,
"that you propose to make a speech
on these grounds, claiming to be
irovernor of Alabama."
"That is ray intention," answered
'Then I must say to youj that the !
moment you attempt it I will have
you arrested and carried off the
grounds," answered tho governor. "I
say this in all kindness to you. If
you were governor you would do the
same thing in a similar case. I will
not permit you or anyone else on
these grounds to interrupt the inaug
uration proceedings of Governor
Kolb looked around at the assem
bled troops and. with a wave of h.s
hand started down and out of the
grounds followed by his adherents.
They congregated again in the street
outside the oapitol grounds.
A wagon stood near by and upon
this Captain Kolb mounted. He stated
that the proceedings would be opened
with prayer. A Populist clergyman
mounted the wagon and at his motion
the Populists uncovered their heads.
In simple English the clergyman in
voked the blessing of God upon the
assemblage, "a plain people, O God,"
he said, "we are here to secure an
honest government," .. , .
KOLB AND CROW MAKE TALKS.
At its conclusion Captain Kolb mad e
a short temperate address. The only
bitterness in it wa directed at Gov
ernor Oates, whom be termed a
usurper. He declared that he had
been letrally elected governor and
that he would use every means to
gain the position which he declared
belonged to him. lie cautioned the
people against violence and amid
cheers descended from the wagon.
Dr. Crow followed with desperate
and bloodthirsty threats. "They
said he. "If betas' opposed to ballot"
box thieving; is anarchy then thank
God I am one." He c.iiled Governor
Oates followers scoundrels, and after
cautioning peace, called on every one
present to meet him to-night to form
a company for the support of Kolb.
There were not over 300 Kolbites in
the crowd and no signs of arms
After this speech all dispersed and
proceeded down town, where they be
gan enlisting in Crow's company,
although the latter has apparently no
definite plan of action.
A battery of artillery was swung
into position on the hill in front of
the state house and the cavalry with

CRISP ON LEGISLATION.
The Speaker Says That Something- Must
Be Don With the Financial Question.
Washington, Dea 3. Speaker Crisp
does not believe that the coming
short session of congress will be pro
ductive of much legislation. It is
very important, he says, that there
should be some legislation on
finances. "I am not prepared to state
what, if anything, may be done at
this session, but it must be apparent
to every one that the present situa
tion should not be permitted to re
main long. Whatever suggestions the
administration has to make will be
awaited with great interest Whether
or not Mr. Carlisle will present a
proposition which will meet with
general approval, no ope can say until
the message comes in. A financial
system which puts it in the power of
any one to deplete the treasury of
gold and to compel the government
to increase its interest-bearing obli
gations by the issue of bonds is
vicious and should be corrected as
speedily as possible."
The speaker does not think there
will be' any tariff legislation during
this session except to correct the
alcohol schedule of the present law.
Further legislation, ne says, rests
with the senate.
