Warhi-noton. Jan. 55. Mr. Call of
fered In tho Senate to-day a radical
resolution demanding thut by elvher
peaceful negotiation or force of nrnis
the Armenian atrocities be stopped.
The resolution was defeated without
division nud the resolution reported
by thu eommitteo on foreign rclutlono
Tlie resolution directs I ho President
to express to tlie powers of Europe the
hope that Turkey will see that protec-.
tlon and' just rights are granted the
, Armenians. It also pledges tlie sup
port of Congress to sustain the Presi
flout in any decisive measures hcinuy
Many memorials concerning the Ar
menian question were presented to
tho Semite. Mr. Hill usked what had
become of tho resolutions for .suer
getle action by the president.
.Mr. Cullom of Illinois, wlio reported
the Turkish resolutions jfrom the com
mittee on' foreign relations, s:iid hu
desired thu speediest possible action
und later in tho day would usk for a
vote on the resolutions.

Cullom bought to secure tho passage of
u Joint resolution amending the net
relative to tho llloomlngton, 111., pub
' Mr. Allen ol Nebraska, mi id theiv
eeeined t(rbu a little ring in tho Hen-
ute as to favorable action on public
buildings., The Enst secured public
buildings, but thu States of the far
West did not.
Mr. (inlllngcr of New Ilarcpshlre,
protested against tlie extravagance of
Mr. Alleles languiige and there was an
, extended debate as to the sections
which had received public buildings.
Mr. Cullom suggested that Hloom
Ington was the home of tho Vice Pros
ident,the irusiiUug olllcer of the Sen
ate, whereupon Mr. Allen Mild ho
would yiJld to an appeal and the roso
lution was passed.
Mr. Callerey of Louisiana called the
attention of tlie judiciary committee
to tlie iinpurttinco of the sugar bounty
question, which hud been referred to
thut committee, saying the subject In
volved the right of subordinate olll
elals to ntillfy au appropriation made
The Turlclsli-Ariiunlan resolution
t was then called up by M. -.Cullom. The
Senator spoke of thu serious situation
In Turkey. A massacre of innovsnee
unparalleled for uges, hud been perpe
trated. Tlie evidence of the bloody
encounter was given by all classes
mid nationalities until it was
beyond tlie slightest doubt. A Turk
ish army 1iaif.baviiutod, robbed,
murdered uuil . Jluycd uliuo thu
people of Armenia. There was no
war, but a pitiless, merciless tornado
of ruin, bloodshed and death. Tho
demon of fanaticism had been let
loose. Tliero was a responsibility
(oniewhere. It din not rest with the
slavish ruler of Turkey, the sultan.
Hack of this were tho disputes of the
countries of tho European alliance,
seeking their territorial advantages.
These countries were responsible. The
"u,,H " "" i puppei. in tneir
It was a matter of regret and em
barrassment, continued Mr. Cullom,
that the policy of the t'niteil States
wah uch as to prevent mo sending of
n fleet to Turkish waters to put a stop
o tho bloody rule prevailing. Hut
Europe had nssumed the obligation of
protection to Armenia. Tlie people of
tho United States were interested in
teeing the obligation executed, and
the purpose of this rcbolulion
was to press, with the great
est earnestness, for tho protection
of Armenia. It was amazing to tlie
people 01 the United States to see tho
indifference of the Christian powers.
There was a double obligation upon
JSnglnntl and yet nothing had been
(done to stay the liuud of thu hultiin,
kxecut by fruitless diplomatic corre
spondence. The powers, said Mr. Cul
luin, appear to lo waiting for the dis
solution of the Ottoman empire.
The United States had no purpose to
interfere in the alTalrs of Europe ex
cept iu protection of American citi
zens and iu the name of humanity.
The United States hud spoken in the
name of humanity in the affairs of
Greece, nnd Hungary. No event in
centuries called so loudly to the civil
izecl world as this slaughter in Tur
key. , - Mr. Illanehard of Louisiana, Demo
crat, said that for more than a year
the world had been greatly shocked at
tho massacres in Turkey. Not only
was there murder and mnssucrcc. but
in the ease of womon worse than mas
Sucre. As n great free nation it was
the duty of the United .States, to ex
press its ollielul repudiation and pro
test against the course of Turkey.

There was an animated discussion,
early in the day, of the llnanclal situa

tho friends of sllv r. During the dis

aroused by some of the remarks made
by (ieneral Hatch of Missouri, !u

J lie Until declaration is as follows:
"That over and above all other ques

but both thu money of Washington

further, that silver standard countries

Much of, tho talk was about tho
place for holding the conventions. It
was generally taken for granted that
t,UJ convention to send delegates to

'tor April 1.'., the last date ulloivml
'under the instructions at the Pertlc
, Springs convention. It was also tnUnn
j r granted thut tne state nominating
'convention will be called for August
j 5- 1'lu committeemen who are hero
favored that date and none of tho
other Democrats objected. Sedalia
and Jefferson City scut delegations to
ask for both conventions, with instruc
tions to get one if they could not get
both. The Jefferson City delegation
claimed the nominating convention by
right of custom, as this convention
is usually held at the capital. Tho
Sedulla delegation evidently recog
nized that fact, for they paid more
attention to the convention to send
delegates to Chicago. During tho
forenoon they struck a Mumbling
block, which may interfere with their
plans. The Pertle Springs convention
last August ordered that the conven
tion to send delegates to the national
convention tie Held iu St. Louib.
