VAN , Armenia , May 30. ( From the Cor

advance guard of the revolutlonaiy party.
> which , as announced a week ago , was betrayed -
trayed to the Turkish government by the
Yezlndes of Tchlbonkla on the night of Sun
day , May 19 , Is now In prison In the city of
Van. Only one member of the party escaped ,
and he nt the earliest possible moment and at
Great risk to himself put himself In communi
cation with the correspondent of tl.e Asso

\ : \ of complete Information with rcap'jt to tl.o
prisoners , but as he Is not dlsvumd to fur
nish It the Turkish government , so long ns
* < thcro remains the slightest chancs tint these
men may escape death , ho holds , for the
present at least , a considerable part of the
facts concerning them. The men had been
hiding In the mountains waiting for rc'n- '
torcements , making plans for carrying on
their work , and the weather having turned
cold and wet , they went to the house of
Hahto. head man of Tchlboiikla , to warm
themselves and dry their clothing. lUhto
was supposed to be friendly to the Armenian
cause , ns ho was ? not a Turk , and great num
bers of his fellow countrymen had been mas-
eacred by the Turkish government In the
Moaul district In 1S92.
TURNED OVER TO THE TURKS.
/ Upon arriving at Hahto's house the men
lacked arms In the corner and ( Mihertd
about the fire. While there Hahto's bcrlbe , a
Turk , called his master out of the * house rnd
i Insisted that they bo turned over to the
Turkish government. The scrlbo threatened
to denounce Hahto to the government unless
the men were betrayed.
Hahto then called together a force of
' . Kurds and Yezlndei and ordered them to make
.X the capture. The villagers went Into the room
ona by one and took part In the conversa
At a signal they selied the guns and com-
mandci ! the men to surrender. Taken by
sui rlsc. the revolutionists made no resist
ance. Ot the fourteen members In the party
only one escaped. Each man had a Boudln
rifle- and six of the party had revolvers. The
prisoners were taken to Servla the next day
by the soldiers nnd were then marched sixty
miles to Von , where they arrived Wednesday
Their arrival was watched by a large mini
bcr of Turks nnd Armenians. On the wav
they were beaten by gun butts and prodded
vvlth bayonets and otherwise maltreated. As
the English member of thu pjrtv was unable
to walk the whole distance , ho was given ;
horse to rde ) the last twenty miles. The
Englishman told the officials that ho was
" Ilai'iV Williams of 22 Ormlston road , Shep
hcrdsburgh. London. His father was Wllllan
"Williams of the same address. He had with
him a photograph of a young woman and an
English passport maJo out to- Harry wll
Hams on Juno 15. 1S92.
* He declared that Jic was a correspondent
pw , i of a telegraphic agency of London , and that
his tarrt of credentials was male out in the
name of Paul Quesnell. Ho was , he so d , on
his way to the Moush and Sassoun region to
Investigate the Armenian situation. His
thirteen companions were taken In hU pay
as guards against attacks by the Kurds. The
other prisoners told the fame story. All
wore dressed as Kurds , Including Williams
At first Williams denied that he could
speak Armenian , but subsequently under pres-
uro of torture he admitted that he could.
After a week of experlmtn's with various
kinds of persuasions known to the Turkish
jailors , the governor of Van said that Wil
liams had confcued ovcryth ng. Nobody bs-
ll ves this. Up to May 30 Wll lams 1'aJ been
unable to ice the British vice consul at Van ,
althiugh Mr. Hallward went as far as to ask
the governor unofflc'ally ' to let him see Wil
liams , but the request was refused. All of
the prisoners have been tortured during the
week , and It Is reported that their persons
, have been violated by the prison officials In
the most revolting and disgusting manner.
The situation In Armenia grows vvorss
dally. The Associated press Is corfitnntly In
receipt of stnrles of robbery , outrage and
murder. The conditions of the Armenians
have been worse during the past six moriths
than ever before. Even n the city of Van
soldiers have been placed on guard at the
Armenian churches , the officials fearing an
UPThonlc'orrespondent had a talk yesterday
with the leader of the revolutionary party In
the province of Van. He stated that , so far
as he Is concerned , the revolutionists will
Sold their hands until It Is known what Great
Britain will do. Ho admitted , also , that the
uro of Williams had very seriously dis
arranged cap the revolutionary plans for the
N MOVES THE PRISONERS.
The prisoners were taken from the prison
at Van Sunday morning. Juno 2. and started
on their way to Constantinople , by orders of
the sultan. No one knew they were to be
transferred till they had .left Van , the order
having come from Constantinople late Satur
day night. Instead of being dragged along on
toot the men were mounted on caravan
The 'Associated press correspondent Is now
In a position to say that a second revolu
tionary band Is In existence across the Per
sian frontier , but of Us Immediate plans , he
mis , he has not been able to learn. . The
leaders of this band were among these met
by the correspondent In a Persian city early
In May. The band Is divided , one part going
forward under Harry Williams , and the other
remaining at Persia to furnish recruits.
The news from Constantinople and London
that Armenian reforms are to be carried out
by the Turks has caused the most Intense
despair and consternation among the
Armenians of Eastern Turkey. The people
expected a mountain of help from Greit
Britain , and they have received nothing.
The situation Is most desperate. The Asso-
elated press Is Informed by all classes of Ar-
mcnlans that unles.8 tire reforms are carried
out under the control of the Christian poweri
the Armenians will have to choose between
emigration and revolution. The people are
worsa off now than they have been at any
time In their history , and the persecutions are
going steadily on. The government Is now
collecting the whole year's fees In advance ,
ivlilch u a most unheard of cruel proceeding.
The demand Is accentuated by beatings and
bajonet thrusts. Thousand } of poor villagers
uro llvlnc on roots and greens , and on the
Moush plains , the wretched SatFoun Is literally -
orally starving to death. The protests ol
Great Drltaln and America have fallen on contemptuously -
temptuously deaf cars. That the Turks have
no Intention of carrying out any sort of reforms -
forms Is ihown by the dally Increase cf press-
nire now being- put upon the helpless Ar
menians , Eastern Turkey Is surprisingly full
of revolutionary agents. One left for Persia
last night and another will go tomorrow
night. These are undeniably critical times In
the Armenian situation. _

Conclniloti of thn lnter tnte Drill nnd En-
cnmpment at St. I.otiln.
ST. LOUIS. July 7. Befwean 35,000 nnJ
40,000 were at Camp Hancock , today to ceo
the wlndup of the Interstate drill and en
campment. The procram today consisted
mostly of sacred concerts by the bands In
camp. In the afternoon the list contest ct
the encampment took place. It was the Indi
vidual drill for four prizes , aggregating In
value $17E. When the drill commenced
twenty-five men. representing each of the
companies In camp , were In line , but coon
all were dropped out but four.
The competition between these was clos3 ,
the drill being very rigid. The llrst nan to
bo caught was Corporal Albert of the National
Ulfles of Washington , U. C. Then Ser
geant Charles Dnrfeu of the Walsh Zouave ?
of St. Louis fell out , followed by Private W.
F. Thompson of the Branch Guards of St.
Louis , leaving Corporal Arthur E. West of
the Phoenix light Infantry of Dayton , 0. , as
the winner of the first prize.
There were many surprises at the dress
parade coon after , when the winners of prizes
were announced. In the free-for-all Infantry
contest for five prizes the contest was clotest
between the Branch Guards of St. Louis
and the llclknap Hides of San Antonio , Tex. ,
which won the first and second prizes rpspec-
tlvely. One of the Judges said the latter
company lost points on Ite Inspection bcc.ii.sc
of the condition of Its rllles , while Its drill
was nearly e ual In excellence to that of
the Branch Guards. The first prize of $3,500 ,
with a $1,000 cup , which went to a home
company , wa declared by one of the judges
to bo entirely out of proportion to the other
rlres of this class.
The medal offered for the captain making
he best personal score during the drill was
warded to Captain Sinclair , commanding the
Brancli Guards. The Dullene Guards of Kin-
sas City won the first prize In the maiden In-
antry class , with the National Rifles of
> Vashlngton a close second.
In the artillery contest , In which four crack
.latteries were entered , Indiana commands
: arrled off the two first prizes , with the
Dallas battery but a few points behind for
There were the most surprises In the ? ouivo
lass , where three prizes were offered and
'our ' companies competing. There was con
Iderablo disappointment that the Chicago
louaves did not get a mention. This com
mand has jurtly been called the first zouave
:6mpany : In the country , because of Its hav-
ng won more than twenty first prizes during
ts lifetime , and many lesser ones. An ana
lysis of Its score card showed where It failed
o como up to the standard of the other
iompanles. In the point of accuracy , It was
icrfect , while Us mark for Inspection was as
high , If not higher than In the cases of Its
lompetltors In this drill.
It , however , came far below the other com
lanles In the number of movements made and
n the quickness of their execution , while Its
mark for work that was distinctly zouavo was
considerably lower than that received by the
winners. The Neelys of Memphis were the
winners of first prize , with the Walsh of
St. Louis second and the Hales of Kansas
My third. There was considerable surprise
hat the Walsh Zouaves , who have been out
of commission for the past two years , should
win second prize. Not a member of the com
pany drilled before for two years until two
iveeks ago , when Captain Heyman called the
men together and through the hardest kind
of work brought them up to their old point of
excellence , and within three points of taking
'ho first prize.
Several of the companies left camp this
evening , Immediately after dress parade , nnd
the others will take their departure on the
early trains tomorrow.

LATEST DECREE OF THE POPE
Poor People Will Not Have to Observe
Bays of Abstinence.
FRIDAYS WILL BE THE ONLY EXCEPTION
Pasting Suld to no Too Orcnt n Hardship
Upon Those Who Depend Upon
1'hyslcnl Kxertlon for
NEW YORK , July 7. Ho/ . Father Duccy
Is authority for the statement that the
pope has promulgated a decree absolving
poor people and walking people from the
observance of all days ot abstinence In the
year except Fridays , even during Lent. A
rumor that such a decree was In existence
has been In circulation for some time , and
Father Duccy says the document will be
forwarded to the bishops ot the United
States and promulgated.
Speaking of the decree. Father Duccy
said : "Many of the ecclesiastics in this
country have felt for years that the trial
of denial placed on the conscience ot the
struggling and working poor was more than
a hardship , almost martyrdom. I have not
seen the ofllclal documents sent to the
bishops , but this Information came to mo
about two months ago from a most trust
worthy Roman Catholic correspondent. It
has seemed to me for years that this leg
islation in favor of God's hard working
poor was necessary. What a hardship to
ask ot men and women , whose fare Is al
ways meager , to practice n denial that robs
them of their strength and unfits them for
the proper discharge of their duties and
labor , when the comfortable , the well-to-do
and the rich and luxurious are feasting
every day nnd find fault , as I have known
them to do , with the hardships of the holy
season of Lent. "
Father Lovell of the archbishop's resl-
denco enys that the rumor Is absurd and
was manufactured In New York.

August Kapp , aged 2 years and 10 months ,

was morphine poisoning. The little fellow
was out In the morning playing , and some ot
the children of the neighborhood gave htm a
box of pills. The lad ate most of them and
became drowsy , and went home and to bed.
Later the parents became alarmed and sent
for a doctor , who found the chlH unconscious
and was unable to rouse him , . The box frcm

CHICAGO , July 7. Ono of the most fu
rious wind and rainstorms In this vicinity
for years passed over the city about 6
o'clock this evening , coming from the north-
wesj. The day had been Intensely hot , nnd
there were many people out on the lake In
sailboats , and , as the storm came very
suddenly , U Is feared that several lives were
lost. The different llfesavlng crews have
been busy all the evening tracing rumors of
capsized boats , people clinging to planks ,
etc. , and up to 10 p. in. have brought In
the occupants of three capsized boats , all
In a very exhaustedcondition. . No traces
of the others have been found up to this
hour , and It Is hoped that no more are out.
Up to within twenty minutes ot the de
scent of the storm upon the city the sky
had been clear and the sun shining brightly.
Suddenly heavy black clouds began to gather
In the northwest and a few minutes later
n terrific gale of wind , accompanied by a
perfect flood of rain and furious thunder
and lightning , was sweeping over the city.
Shade trees were broken off close to the
ground , awnings and signs were torn away
nnd much damage was done In the city.
The wind subsided after about half nil hour ,
but the furious rnln continued for full >
two hours. The parks had been crowded
nil day with people seeking relief from the
almost Intolerable heat , nnd when the storm
began there was a stampede for the \ariuus
elevated and cable linos.
The surface roads were all equipped with
open cars , and as a result the occupants of
every train mode a sorry looking sight be
fore they had traveled a block , and most
of them , after getting n thorough conking ,
deserted the cars and sought the shelter
of convenient stairways and stores along
the streets , and there they had to remain
until after 7:30 : , or take the chances of
another wetting by once more taking the
FATALITIES WILL BE SIX.
Several houses In the outlying districts
were struck by lightning and wrecked. Two
small residences were wholly destroyed. No
one was Injured.
A signal tower beside the Panhandle tracks
at Ada street was blown over nnd the tower
man , August Bcdloe , fatally Injured.
At 11 p. m. the police and life savers say
that the fatalities will not exceed half n
lozen. Charles Klein , John Ross and Charles
j. Shook are bellovcd to have bsen drowned.
They were blown out Into the lake In a row-
mat and no trace of them has been found.
The yawl boat belonging to the yacht Hattle
B. has been picked up oft Twenty-sixth
street , but It Is thought the yacht has weath-
; red the gale and made some other port.
The small craft which were blown out Into
he lake by the hurricane report exciting ex
periences. There were several narrow ts-
capes from drowning.
The telegraph and telephone servlcs , was
completely demoralized. It was 10 o'clock to
night before any communication could be had
SOME HEAVY LOSSES.
Later reports coining In this evening show
that the losses In the the downtown districts
ilone will aggregate a large sum. The big
department store of Rothschild & Co. , occupy-
ng nearly three-quarters of n square on Stale
street , suffered most. The plate glass windows
dews on the State street side vere nearly all
jlown In. The stock was badly damaged by
the flood of rain. Several passersby on the
street were painfully Injured by falling glass.
Plate glass windows were also blown In In
several other downtown stores.
At midnight no further fatalities haj been
reported , and It ts now thought that all who
were out on the lake have been accounted
for. The report of the drowning of three
men off Cottage Grove avenue Is now be
lieved to have been without foundation. A
small boat containing three men came ashore
near the Farragut boat house , after the police
reported their supposed accident.
Dispatches from many points In the central
and northern portions of .Illinois nnd south
ern Wisconsin tell cf furious gales this after
noon and evening , though In no place did the
damage reach so high a point as In Chicago.
The weather all through the state was op
pressively hot all day , and the storm came
with remarkab'e suddenness toward even-
Ing. Along the lake shore , north of here
there was much damage done , and It Is
feared that when ( he returns are all In It wl. :
be found that there was much greater loss ol
llfo than heard of tonight.
At'Savanna , III. , t'no storm almost reached
the proportions of n cyclone.
At Peorla the mercury had stood nt 98
nearly all day until 4 o'clock , when the storm
suddenly swept down upon the city. Severa
buildings were unroofed , one three-story
frame block being completely destroyed am
much damage done to trees , awnings am
windows. Many boating parties were on the
fciktl but to far as known tonight all sue
ceeded In reaching places of safety.
LIST OF THOSE DROWNED.
Some lumber crafts , Chicago bound , were
caught by the storm , but whether they suf
fered cannot be known until tomorrow.
The excursionist steamers all canm In
safely. Long after midnight the searchers
were patrolling the waters , seeking over
turned boats and some token of the dead.
At the latest writing , although the old cap
tains of the river believe the morning will
add to list , the drowned are :
JOHN ROSS , capsized near outer break
THREE UNKNOWN PERSONS , supposed
to have been drowned by capsizing of small ,
unknown yacht , off Twenty .second street.
Charles Cllno and Charles Leeshook , first
reported drowned with Ross , wore not on the
boat when she went down.
At Delevan , Wls. , the roof of ths Metto-
wee hotel was blown off and great trees were
broken like pipe stems. The wind was accom
panied by a deluge of rain and great hall-
stones that broke windows and leveled fields
PINE BLUFF , Ark. , July 7. A terrific
cyclone swept over this city and adjacen
territory north at 11 o'clock tonight. Al
wires north and south are down and news o
the damage which must have been consider
able , cannot be ascertained at this hour
Small buildings and numerous parts of house
In this city were hurled away for great die
tances , but thus far no loss of life or othe
casualties have been heard of. This was tb
hardest storm that ever occurred In this sec
tlon. It abated somewhat after fifteen in In

ho white caps were lashed Into email

( i\\cd the first gust was the mont furious
ver seen here. It was Impossible to see
tie llttlo boat from landings , and nothing
could bo seen. The storm was directly bc-
ilnd. The first plunge Into the water drove
lie nose of the boat far Into the
vavcs , and It was feared the DIs-
atch had died on the first on-
laught. It came up , however , with the
next crest , but the glass showed one passen-
; er was missing. This was probibly Miss
logan , as1 the searchers found her body n
nllo from the wreck 'with n life preserver
ixed In her hand. This plunging and rolling
vas continued for more than an hour , when
t was seen that the launch's steam had given
ut. Its screeching whistle , constantly nnd
alnly crying for help , was silenced. The ex
cursionists were huddled In a group In ths
center of the boat. One big wave followed
nether , beating upon the helpless thing with
ncrcaslng fury. It finally rolled over on

Miss Hogan's body was found at Kaye *

WASHINGTON. July 7. The strained re

l''rench Guiana boundary appears to become
more complicated dally. The subject Is anal
ogous to the British-Venezuela trouble In
which the United States has taken a hand ,
and In the opinion of officials hero the Fre-cli
contest with Brazil Is nipldly assuming an
aggravated aspect , which may nguln call for
the attention of the United States , as the

An armed conflict has occurred In the dis
puted territory between French soldiers nnd
Brazilians. The French government has de
manded redress nnd the Brazilian congress
has passed a resolution couched In shnrp
language , calling for nn explanation from
Franco. A cable report from Brazil states
that the government regards the subject as so
menacing that n strict censorship has been
established on nil Information regarding It.
The armed conflict has merely brought to a
crisis the IOIIK contention over the French
Both countries claim n large tract of terri
tory , extending north from the Amazon
river , and equal In extent to what Is usually
designed on the map as French Guiana. Eiclt
country regards the occupation of this dis
puted territory as unwarranted. The fault
for the recent conflict cannot bo placed.
French Guiana Is wanted by France as a
convict colony for the deportation of tlm
worst classes from the French prisons.
HISTORY OF THE CASE.
As a result , the population Is a strange
mixture of French , Arabs , Malajs and Greeks
nnd the riff-ruff of Paris , and they are a des
perate nnd lawless class. A few years ago
one of these adventurers , a man named
Gross , attempted to get up an Independent
country. He established a capital and called
his government "Independent Guiana. " The
boundary dispute has run through two cen
turies , nnd has the distinction of being an ar-
tlclo In the two famous treaties Uticcht and
Brazil was originally n Portuguese colony ,
nnd Portugal Insisted that It extended up to
the French Guiana boundary now shown on
the maps. Franco claimed that her territory
ran down to the Amazon. In the treaty nt
Utrecht the river Vlncct-Plnzon was fixed
as the boundary. Portugal then claimed that
this river was the northerly stream now
marking the boundary , while France claimed
that It was the stream near the Amazon , so
that the treaty left the dispute ns far open
Since the recent nrmrd conflict French sol
diers have crossed the bounJary and perma
nently established thcm'elves In the disputed
territory , with the purpose , It Is believed , of
holding It by force.

itccords of the United Stntes Stcambout
. WASHINGTON , July 7. The records of
the United States steamboat Inspection serv
ice , which , during the last nineteen years
has been under the direction of General Dumont -
mont as Inspector general , show that during
the last fiscal year the number of lives lost
on steam vessels was approximately 368. This
was an Increase over the average Jor the pre
ceding 18 jeara of 128. This great Increase
was caused by the largo loss of life by the
foundering of the steamship Collmn , recently
oft' the Pacific coast. This makes the average
'or the past nineteen years 247.
The highest previous annual loss was GSC ,
In 1S74 ; the lowest was 133 , In 1886. Not
withstanding the great Increase In the num
ber of vessels since 1870 , over 100 per cent ,
there have been but 729 disasters to steam
vessels , with a loss of but 6,057 live' . The
number of passengers Increased per annum
from 122,589,130 , carried In 1870 , to not lets
than CCO.000,000 In 1892. The average loss of
llfo under t'no law of 1852 was one Ilfo In
tvery 250,181 passengers carried , while under
the act of 1871 , which greatly Improved the
efficacy of the service , the loss was only ono
life In each 2,708,330 passengers carried , or a
reduction of nearly if to 3 In proportion to
the number of passengers carried. The serv
ice consists of about 175 officers and clerks
in the supei vising Inspector general's depart

under whom are located Inspectors , dlvded
