of the fIrst visit of the correspondent to the
quiet % house ho was Introduced ] by on eminent
Armcnlan genteman , editor of the ArtzJan-
lak. On the occasion or his second visit , Mgr.
Jhrhnlran , having dechled to male the state-
, menl aslect for by the Associated press talked
fluently and eloquently of the wrongs or his
countr ) ' . Among other things he said :
CAUSES O TIE lASSACI .
"The massacre In the Sassoun mountains
was the result or a long Ileriod of Turkish
misgovernment. In the Armenian province or
Turkey a policy or cruelty and oppression
has continued for n long time . I , myself ,
ha\'l been on eye wItness of all Itnts of Tur-
Ish onoresslon. In act. about fifty years of
my life have hCn passed In connection with
the perH-utons In Armenia. Twenty or
thirty years ago the Armenians were still
very low end narrow , and did not understand
the cause or all the calamIties which beel
them. They thought their troubles were sent
by heaven as a punIshment for their sins.
Suoh Is always the belief ot the peple ( he- ]
prlved of educatIon and the printing press.
Dut later , when they began to think and to
understand tIm wicked acts of their op-
pressors. there como a change and they saw
clenrly the real cause of their troubles.
"Ono reason for their change was the war
between Russia -nnd Turkey In 1876. which
ended so happily for the Dugarlns ] , who
received freedom and selr-government. The
Armenians slffered from the misgovernment
of the Turks much more than the Dul-
garlans who lived In the neIghborhood or
the western European powers , as the ArmenIans -
menIans were at such a remote distance
from the civilized world that their cries
ctul not be heard.
"At the close of the Ruso.TurJdsh war
the Armenians encouraged by the improved
conditions of Dulgarla , demanded the same
guarantees which were given to that coun-
try. Al kinds of complaints , grievances
and petitions , poured Into the patriarch of
Constantinople. They were so numerous
that If they had been thrown Into a large
- room they would have . fled I as full as
t an egg.
z PLEADED ARMENIAS CAUSEL
"In the meantime : , the European powers
¼ were compelled to sign the Berlin treaty.
At. this period I was sent with another delegate -
: gate to the chief capitals of western Europe
- tD plead the cause of the Armenians. I
visited Paris London , Vienna and Rome ,
but my visit did not produce satisfactory
results. I presented petitions to the Derln
congress , giving full details of the Turkish
atrocities In Turkish Armenia. Moreover
, there was prInted In Berlin at the some
' time my description of these atrocities.
"Dut what we had worked for was not
; 'realzell , as . with reference to the Armenian
question , the Berlin congress adopted what '
Is known as the slxty.frst article of the
Berlin treaty , and , although the treaty was
shgneth It had no influence In lessening the
persecutions. Our hopes were In vain. The
cruelty of the TurkIsh government did not
cease. I merely took a new ( arm. But ,
keepIng In view that there was a treaty , the
Turks sought for some legal means of justifying -
tying their atrocities.
"That happened ; the taxes became heavier
and all kinds of duties became greater , and
, the Turkish people received full powers to
tax Armenian peasants. Why should a
people who have nof only n umclent quantity : -
tly ot land , ' even too much , and n very
fertile and veIl Irrigated land , leave their
natve sol and emigrate to other countries ?
It there were no proof of Turkish ] misgovernment -
government In Armenia this circumstance
alonG would present sufcient evIdence of
f ; those oppressions which the Armenians In
, Turkey are suffering. Nearly 80,000 Armenians -
r menians scott work In Constantinople In
: order that they may be able to pay the
taxes which the Turkish government Imposes -
poses upon them. .
"In the whole Turkish empire , there are
as yet about 3.000.000 Armenians. "

who understood the actions of the Turks
: and began to revolt. I was then and only
then , that the Turks understood the danger
. * ' of the position. As a rseul , they hall recourse -
course to the Kurds , whose chiefs went to
j : , Constantinople , where they received Instruc-
tons to form regiments of soldiers from
. ; their own tribes. Thl was the beginning
of what Is known as the lamldleh cavalry ,
I or Kurdish regulars. The KurdIsh chiefs
r were loaded wih favors and Invested with
: the rIght to oppress the Armenians. The
troops received no pay , but what was better ,
. they received permissIon to plunder the
Christians. Unable to elude this new ( arm
f or oppression and torture , some or the Armenians -
menians reveled against the cruelty of
their oppressors , while many other sought
to Oy to foreign countrtes.
, The final result came In the massacre
In time Sassoun mountains. What took place j
I know from the statements of eye wlt-
nes.ees . and also from accounts publshed In
"The Turks hall wlshell for a long time
; to capture and punish the people who had
reveled against the cruelties of the Kurds ,
, but the inaccessibility of the mountain

During the Interview the Associated press
correspondent asked Mgr. Ihrhnlran what ,
truth there was In the story that certain Ar- i
menlan revolutionary ] leaders Induced Armenians -
finns 10 commit atrocities on Turks In the
hope of provoking outrages which would raise
time wrath of the ChrIstan ! worlli. Ho replied
that such rumors were too absurd to obtain
credence anywhere except In Turkey. With
reference to the 'furldsh commission of Inquiry -
quiry , Mgr. Khrhnlran said : "The chief Interest -
crest ( at present center- In the Turkish commissIon -
missIon of Inquiry , but Armenians look for no
results from the commission , because I will
only deal with the Sauoun mater , which
was only on incident In the oppression of
the Armenians. "
BUTChERY AT CLEVOUSON.
The correspondent of the Associated press
also interviewed several Armenian refugees
at Tiflis. The stories they told ot the mas-
sacres correspond In every respect with what
has been published In local Armcnlan papers.
The Armenians held their ground against
time Turks for twenty-five ' days , when , their
provisions and ammunition being exhausted
they were either forced to fly or to sur-
render. After reaching the villages of Clel-
vouson thc Turks set fire to the houses ,
destroyed the churches and began to mas-
sacre the inhabitants. Old and young , men .
women and children were tortured and put
to death. Among this number were two
priests. one of whom , Terpctros was strIpped
or all his clothes and pierced with
twenty-five thrusts of a poniard which
caused his death. The noma of the other
murdered man was Terrogaus. But let the
refugees speak for themselves.
Tine Informant of the Associated press
continued : "To defend ourselves we were
united as one faml ) ' . 'Va held our ground
af lon as we coulmi. but we had only 300
old-Iashoned ! guns. D hind us were two men
wh were ready to kill any of us who might
attempt to fly. nut we had not the alight-
est intention of so doing. However aCer , .
twenty-five days we held a council as to
what wo should do. The Turks sent word
that If we surrendered they would not kill
us. But they did not eeep ] the promises
and began to cut the heads of some , to disembowel -
, embowel others , to outrage our wives and
daughters. Ten of the later , on refusing
to embrace time Moslem faith , were pint to
, dentin. , These of us who were not killed , received -
, celved wounds an l fifteen who were not
wounded , were thrown Into a large ditch.

CHICAGO , March 3.-The western lines
have made excellent progress In complet-
lag the organization of their Trunk Line
commission and there seems to be no reason -
son why It should not be tn full operation

ger Agent Townsend or the Missouri Pacific -
cific was present when the meeting convened -
vened and explalnell that his road was In
no way anxious to figure as an obstruction
to time complete organization : of the com-
mnittee . but I had no intention or joining
the committee lS long as Its competitors
were on the outside. I was . however , willing -
Ing to join when its 'rivals had done the
same thlng. Mr. Townsend also announced
that the Iron Mountain road would become -
come a member fa the Southwestern nBSO-
ciutiomm whenever Its competitors were
ready to take similar action. The Wabasim .
which had made its memberBhlp In the
commitee contingent upon that of the

taken by Mr. 'ownscmt was satisfactory
to them and that I was willing to be con-
sldererl a full .eded member of the com-
mitee when a little muter between It and
the Mean road WaS ilxed. This was the

willing to take any action . but a meeting

tcularly Interested In the Alton-\Vumhn8im
