To Grand Army Psts.
C. E. Adams , department commander -
er , has issued the following to ( rand
Army : the form of general or-
der-No. ii :
' 'The department commander desires
to thank the retiring officers for the attention -
tention and general efficiency displayed
in the department work during this
year. The reports which are rapidly '
coming in 'show an excellent condition
of the department , such in fact as could
only be brought about by the unitedef-
forts of ofBcers and members.
"And to the newly initiated officers ,
I congratulate you upon the high de-
grec of confidence placed in you by 1
your comrades. Your duty to them is
one thatshould be faithfully and carefully -
fully performed. Not only the welfare
and stability-of our order , but the patriotism - '
triotism of the country depends upon
an intelligent performance of your
duties. And as an important item in
the line of your duties I urge you to
take immediate steps to reinstate all l
worthy members suspended for the I
non-payment of dues. 'lire national
encampment wisely provided liberal
regulations for such relief , and posts
should at once move to carry out the
true spirit of these regulations , and
bring back without delay all comrades
1 who , from inability to meet their obligations -
gations , have been dropped from the
rolls 1Ve are -passing through a very
critical perioddn our history , and those
who are strong and vigorous should be
untiring in their zeal to strengthen
the weaker lines.and thereby make it
possible for the appeals in behtlf of 1
our deserving .comrades to reach the
heart of this great nation and command -
mand its respect and acquiescence in
.all reasonable demands.

to Minister Depuy de Lome that it
was believed Jose Maceo's insurgent
band had been located east of the

importance , .as the army of

upon by the insurgents to succor

position on the Gonto river is such
that it will take .him thirtv days to
reach Gomez , even if unopposed. The
wounding of Itabi will cripple his di-
visfon , leaving Gomez alone to withstand -

British Government Accepts Arbitration
to Settle Baring Sea Avratds.
WA9uINoToJan. . 27.-Sir Julian-
Pauncefote , the British ambassador ,
called on Secretary Olney to-clay to
submit the final acceptance by the
British government of the plan of a
Bering sea commission to pass upon the
claims of Canadian scalers seized prior
to the Paris award. It remains only
for the president to submit the plan
to Congress , and as the legislative
branch has refused to pay a lump sum
for the seizures , it is considered certain -
tain that the commission arrangement
will be approved. It is likely that
the president , in submitting the plan
to Congress , will suggest once more
the desirability of a single payment as
the most expeditious means of settlement -
ment , for the commission of arbitration -
tion , of agreed to , will bind time United
States to the payment -of any sum
which the commission may award.
The commission is to be composed
ofone American commissioner , one
British commissioner and -an umpire
to be chosea by the two. The personnel -
sonnel of the commission has not been
suggested , but there is a belief that
the president of Switzerland will be
asked 'to ' act -umpire , ot some 'one
-designated by the Swiss president , if
the sessions of the comnrnission necessitate -
sitate the presence of the umpire in
Adwoeutes of Sound Money May Defeat
Arizona's Admission.
lntiv YORK , Jan. 27.-Nathan 0.
Murphy , territorial delegate from and
ex-governor 'of Arizona , said today -
day : "The people of Arizona are a
'unit for self government. Six weeks
.ago there was practically no opposition -
tion to admitting Arizona. It was
.generally conceded that the remaui-
ing territories should be admitted and
'the responsibility and the expenses of
'their government transferred to their
own people. But lately considerable -
able irritation has developed on
: account of the monetary dispute , and
motives un-American , sectional and
selfish have caused several representatives -
tatives to announce their opposition to
the admission of any more Nestern
States whose Senators , they think ,
would disagree with the East on the
'money question. The merits involved
are temporarily obscured on this ac-
count. I have , however , too much
confidence in the ultimate justice and
love of fair play of time American people -
ple to'think that an entirely extraneous -
ous issue will be allowed to prevent
justice being done to a loyal and par
-triotie sub-division of this country. "

but both-the money of Washington
and Hamilton , and Jefferson and Monroe -
roe and Jackson and Lincoln , to the
end that American people may receive
honest pay for an honest product , the
American debtor pay his just obligations -
tions in an honeststandard , and not iii
a standard that is appreciated 100

of our country , and to the end ,
i further , that silver standard countries

former party affiliations , they invite
in a supreme effort to free themselves

WASHINGTON , .Tan. ? 3.-Time Republican -
lican silver Senators have signed a declaration -
claration tvliich is intended to be used
in the coming campaign as time tle-
mard which the silver men will
make for a plank in the national -
tional convention. In the preamble
it is recited that the present financial
system endangers the industrial
prosperity of time United States. which
is threatened by China and Japan ,
as a result of the decrease in
the value of silver and the difference
of exchange between silver and
gold using countries. It is therefore
resolved that the signers favor the
free and unlimited coinage of silver at
a ratio of It to 1 for the purpose of
obliterating this difference of ex :
change , which is declared to operate
as a bounty on the export of products
from silver using countries to gold
using countries. It is also resolved
that they favor a tariff which shall
equalize the difference in the cost of
labor between this country and the
countries of Europe and Asia. It is
the purpose of those who are circulating -
lating time declaration to get all the
Republican silver men in congress to
sihn it.

the Armenian atrocities be stopped.
The resolution was defeated wthout.
division and the resolution reported
by time committee on foreign relations-
passed unanimously.
The resolution directs the President-
to express to the powers of Europe tho' i
lmope that Turkey will see that protection - ,
tion and Just rights are granted the ' t
Arumenians. It also pledtes the support - . ;
port of Congress to sustain the I'resi-
dent in any decisive measures he may j
take. I'
Many memorials concerning time Ar-
nmenian question were presented to' r
the Senate. Mr. Hilt asked what hadt
become of the resolutions for rimer- ; 3
getit action by the president.
: \ iCullom of Illinois , who reported
the Turkish resolutions from the coin-
mnittec on foreign relations , said he
desired the speediest possible action
and later in the day would aslc for a
vote on the resolutions.
There was a brief hurry when lfr.
Cullom sought to secure the passage of
a joint resolution amending the act
relative to the Bloomington , Ill. , public -
lic building.
Mr. Allen of Nebraska , uul there
seemed to be a little ring in the Senate -
ate as to favorable action on public
buildings. 'l'ime East seemed public
buildings , but time States of time far
( Vest did not.
Mr. Galliuger o of New Hampshire r
protested against the extravagance of {
Dlr. Allemi s language and there was an
extended debate as to time sctions
wlmith hacl received public buildings.
JlI. . Cullomm suggested that Bloomington -
ington was the home of the Vice l'res-
ideut , the presiding officer of the Son-
mite , whereupon Dlr. Allen said lie
would yield to an appeal and the resolution -
lution was passed. r
DIr. Cafrerey of Louisiana called the' I
attention of the judiciary conrcnitteo t
to the importance of the sugar bommty
question , which had been referred to
that committee , saying the subject involved -
volved time right of subordinate oil- l
dials to nulify an apnronriation made h
by Congress.
Time 'l'urhish-Arm.nian resolution '
was then called up b3 Mr.Cullom. The
Senator spoke of time serious situation
iii Turkey. A massacre of innacenee i
unpam alleled for ages , had been perpe-
trdted. The evidence of the bloody
encounter was given by all classes
and nationalities until it was
beyond the slightest doubt. A 'l'urk- (
ish army had bayoneted , robbed ,
murdered and flayed ali' the
people of Armenia. Tlmere uas n o
tva t , but a pitiless , merciless tornado
of rain , bloodshed and death. 'l'ht :
demon of fanaticism had been let , t
loose. There was a responsibility 1

slavish ruler of Turkey , time sultan.
Lack of this were time dispute of the.
countries of the European alliance ,
seeking their territorial advantages. .
These countries were responsible. 't'he rl
sultan was but a puppet in their' +
hands. t
It was a matter of regret : rid embarrassment -
barrassment , continued Mr. tullonr ,
that the policy of the United States
was such as to prevent the sending of
a fleet to Turkish waters to put a stop
to time bloody rule prevailing. But
Europe had assumed the obligation of
protection to Armenia. 'l'ime people of
time United States were interested in
seeing time obligtion executed , and
time purpose of this resolution
was to press , with the greatest -
est earnestness , for time protection
of Armenia. It was amazing to the
people of the United States to see the
indi ereuce of the Christian powers.
There was a double obligation upon
England and yet nothing a had been.
done to stay the ] land of the Sultan ,
exceut by fruitless diplomatic corre-
spondence. 'r'ime powers , said Dlr. Cul-
hun , appear to to waiting for the dissolution -
solution of the Ottoman empire.
'I'he Unitetl States had no purpose to 1
interfere in the atraics of Europe except -
cept in protection of American citizens -
zens and in the name of huutanity.
The United States had spoken in the
name of lmunianity in the affairs of
Greece and Hungary. No event in called so loudly to time civil-

the massacres in Turkey Not only
was there murder and mnassacree. but.
