Hoclnllmn nnd I'roteollon.
Knt.iiirnoti, Nor. 9. United States
Ambassador Thomas F. llnyard da
llvcrd tho inaugural nddrepti last
evening to the i'htlosophlo society. It
wuh entitled "Individual Liberty, tho
Germ of National Progress and Per
manence." Mr. llnyard spoke, nt length of tho
wonderful growtli and development of
tlio United States and earnestly evoked
the opposition of his hearers to "stato
soclalliiu" in all forms. Ho also
sounded a note of warning against tho
many proposals of political interfer
ence and slate inihagcuicnt under tho
garb of philanthropic aid or pater
nalism. After discussing what ho termed tlio
''tyranny of labor organizations," Mr.
Jluyard said: "In my own country I
havo witnessed tho insatiable growtli
of that form of State socialism styled
protection, wlilch, I believe, has done
more to foster class legislation and
create Inequality of fortune, corrupt
public life, banish men of independ
ent mind uud churacter from public
councils, blunt public conscience nnd
place politics upon the low level of n
mercenary scramble tlnm any other
single cause. Step by step, and large-'
ly awing to tlio confusion of civil
strife, It lius succeeded in obtaining
control of tho sovereign power of tax
ation, creating tlio tovenue into an
engine for soltWh nnd private profit.
Its allied beneficiaries and combines
are called "trusts," and gradually tho
commercial martiio of the United
States has disappeared, the fow ves
sels lately built being an exception
and proving tho rule us they were
only built by making a breach in tlio
general tariff nnd navigation laws.
"It is Incorrect," said Mr. liavard,
"to speak of protection us a national
policy. That could never be, as it
will never bo anything but tho foster
ing of special interest nt the expense
of tlio rest. It is futul to the hopes of
advancement or even to tin; retention
of whut has been gained by civilization."
THE TURKISH CRISIS.

respondent iu Constantinople tele
graphed to-day: "The condition of
tilings hero l regarded unbearable
by all the diplomats and the Sultan,
whose sole idea of policy is to pluy
oil" ono power against the other, in
nonplussed ut their unanimity. All the
powers uro friendly, mid they give
hi in sound, but most dUtustoful coun
sel. None of their .manifestation!
have nny solilsh purpose, affording ma
terial for the manufacture of political
capital. Among tho advlco tendered
hiui.mucli bears upon tho insccurltyof
the capital as evidenced by September's
riots, which left tlio Mohammcduns in
a stato of unprecedented excitement.
Hut thu remedy suggested is an in
creased number of spies, urrests or
secret executions, und therefore tho
advice of the powers does not meet
with response. Much also lias becu
6ald about thu bloodshed in tho prov
inces uud tlio enormous detriment to
trade iu thu greater part of Asia Minor
und Syria. Hut the only unswer is tlio
annihilation of tho reform scheme by
the appointment of two palace crea
tures to the board of control, of which
ono of them is president. No whore,
however, nro fears entertained of uuy
wholesale fanatical outbrcuk against
the Christiana, Tho danger lies quite
in another direction."
A cipher letter received from Erzln
plan, headquarters of the notorious
Zchkl Pashu, commander of the troops
ut tlio tlmu of the Sassoun massacre,
states that 2,000 Armenians were
killed during the. lulu disturbances.
In view of tho many startling re
ports from Constantinople rccontly, it
Is possibly just to believe that some of

WAsiuxnToy, Nov. 9. Tlio President
to-day approved an amendment to the
civil service rules, which will result
iu bringing many postmasters and em

Tho addition Is us follows: "And
whenever, by order of tho Postmaster
General, any postofllce shall bo con

It is tho intention of (he Postofllco
department to consolidate mnnv
ofllces throughout the country. This
will not nccosfsarily do awaw with tlie
olllces, but will establish them us sta
tions of some central point. Tho de
