that the massacre or British subjects \as

Although Mr. Jernigan does nol use the
word In his dispatch , there Is no doubt felt
by the officials or the State department that
he refers to them , and that his dispatch Is in-

The cablegram was at once forvard'd to
Secretary Olney at his summer-home In Ias-
saehusets for his information. Up 10 this
time . so far as ascertained , no steps have
been token by the Navy department toward
sending any naval force to the district wh 'ro
the reported massacre has occurred. V'hen
word came or the trouble yesterday the cus-
tomary Instructions were sent to Minister

the sIgners of the Berlin treaty have agreell
to sell a note to the Porte , announcing that
as Turkey Is unable to protect the lives or

sinner with vice regal powers to administer
Armenia In place or the sultan . Daron Kal- I
lay w1 ! e appointed. He comes from an an-
dent noble family of Hungary. In 1881 he
was minIster or foreign affaIrs for the em- I

CONSTANTINOPLE , Aumg 4.-The reply
of the Porte to the demunls or the powers
for rerorms In Armenia Is conciliatory and In
many points agrees wih the powers' de-

sessors to assist the Turkish ' provincia1 gov-
enment and to admit a proportion or Chris-
tans among the minor olclals , police ant
gendarmes , anti also promises tu restrain
the Kurds from violence. I also declares

with the reply.

LINCOLN , Aug. 4-Speclal.-AhOUt ( ) the
time the late legislature closed Its session n
republican front the Elkhorn valley country
went dOwmi to Lincoln , armet wIth credentials
and enlorsements , seeking one or the many
appolnU\'e 110sltlons In the state house. On
the wa ) he met a friend who hall long . been
dote In the secret counsels or the 11art , and
knew Its Insllo workings. To this friend he
nnfo11el the object of his visit to the cap-
lal cIty , anti " = D unree1ngl ) Inrormed that
he mIght as \ \ eli return home and save hIs
time anti money. Ullon being asked the ren-
son the rrlend replied the applicant had been
on the wrong side or the governorship con- I '
test In the state convention at Omaha last
year . amid whie Majors ! was not elected to
the position for which ho had been noml-
natel he still dictated , to some extent
nearly every appointment made , except those
In the olces or the goveror mend auditor .
To brier the maler , the first qualfcaton de-
manlel or I prospective apllolntee "as unswerving -
swerving support ur the Nemaha statesman ,
both before and after the state convention.
'lils statement has proven to be about cor-
rect not only In the case or the applicant
referred to , but In that or many others.
All of which brings to mind that during the
campaign last year , aCer the friends or Mr.
Majors , had exhausted everything else In
favor or their blue-shlrted hero , they would
clobe wRit the clnching urgument that above
nil other timings he "as a man who always
stool by his rrlemls. So for as his friends
shal secure favors In preference to others ,
this Is probably trome but when It apples
to friends already In place It will be
harllr bore out ! y events that have oc-
curred at thc capitol since the first of time
) 'car. \
As soon as some .r the state officers round
the ) ' were safely elected , they began to deVise -
Vise means or caring for the many friends
who were sure they would be "stood b ) ' , "
The first In this lne or work was "Colonel"
Hussel , better known as Major man Frl-
duy. In al(1ton to t\O or three tmes as
man ) ' promises or his own to fulnl as he
had 111aces to give he had a certain per
cent or Tom's friends to stanl by , and to
make imp for the defclenc ) ' or places his cal
for appropriations from the legimlattmre last
winter proviiell for several new Ilosltons ,
But these efforts to "Increase" the service
were balked by the legislature whie In an
una'mi1th tc frame or mind One or time
posiions the colonel was anxious to have
create was aim additional 11cput-a man to
I travel 1 over the tate to visit the dlferent
puhle Insllutlons and , keep tab on . them.
The plnc didn't require an ) ability except
strength to draw salary , and was to be
[ fled ! y Captain Phelps Paine a mutual
friend or Hussel anti Maors , and who had
the virus so thoroughly Impregnate'l ' In hl8
I sy tem that he wantel to defeat "Ir. Timurs-
Iou's electIon to the senate to avenge Tom's
political nilst'rtumne. Cap had told' everybody -
body confdeltal ) ' , during the months he-
tween the election and the Inauguraton , that
he was to he deputy under Russell , but the
adverse action by the legislature changed
the plans. Paine hal to be cared for but
as he was or no use except as swearing man
at a circus , he was allowed 10 go and comE
as he pleased , anti It Is reported that the
other employes or the office were assessed
a smal per cent or their salary to make up
a stpend for this patriot , which method or
fnanclal mpanagenmemmt was continued for
about three months
MADE A PLACE FOR PAINE.
At about this tme Colonel Russell con-
clued to shut on assessments , and create a
vacanc ) The had an assistant bookkeeper In
his ofce , In the person or Webb H Wheeler ,
and he concludCI 10 dispense with his services -
ices There were two reasons for this action .
One that I would thereby rurlsh a fountain
or Income for i'aioe and by putting all the
bookkeeping In charge ot Walter Dawson ,
Cap could contnue devoting his tlmo to
saving the state with his mouth , and advo-
eating the renominaton and vIndicaton or
Majors In lS9G. The second reason was that
Wheeler was unfortunate In having a father-
In-law who devoted his tme and talent last
summer In trlnl to secure the nomination or
Jack lacCol for governor , and who had on
equal aversion to neckties ant blue shirts. I
Is difficult to decide which or these two
reasons had the greater weight In securing
Mr. Wheeler's dismissal , and the public will
have to leclle for Itself . At any rate Paine
Is now drawing the $ i.300 yearly salary aI-
lowed for assistant boole per. alhough
It's doubtful If he knows the Ilterencq between -
tween the debit anti the credit side or a
ledger. and no one has ever seen him do any
work In the capItol for the state. limit a
frIend hal been stood by , anti a swipe de-
lvered In a left-imamided rr.anner to n political
enem ) ' .
Maters moved along quietly In this office
for a few weeks after the change was made
and then Major arley ! was brought up
wIthout notIce and round hlnuelr out or a
place. Mr. larley was an old soldier . the
capital stock upon which Russell and Majors
have achieved all or their pollcal sucee ! !
He had been In the office for years under
dlfrereut atlmninlstratlons. ! He '
admlnstralons. was always at
his post and was ralhrul and correct In his
worl , . lie had but one fault . Ho was an
old friend or Jk Dew or Johnson count ) ' ,
and his son . who was a delegate to the
Omaha conventlomi. voted for Mr. Dew for
commIssioner. Jake Dew like several
other candldatrs , hal been led to belIeve
ho was to be the beneficiary or the Majors
strength In the convention , and like many
olhlrs found out when It was too late that
ho had been bamboozlel , A realIzation or
this sort doesn't leave the _ kindliest feeling
toward the tm'ansgresscr sM a decided cool- i
ness sprung Ul1 between Johnson and I
Nemalla counties . I has also been reported ,
that Mr. Dew had declared his IntentIon
or being a cSlldate for commlsoner ! again
next year , Informaton that was not pleasing
to Mr. Russell . In view or the many blunders
and mlslakes he had been making , and the
Increasing prospect that he was serving
his last term I Is not surprising , timeim
that he should conclude ho no longer had
room In hi office for a man who was upon
such friendly terms wIth Mr. Dew espe-
cal ) ' IS the man Dew had become more or
less oflens've ' . both to Russell and his friend
Torn Thereoro : Ir , Marley had to go out .
and almost sumultanecusly with the dls-
mlsal or this veteran the comml9310ner
round a place for the llughler or an ex-
confederate soldIer-all these things from a
lan to whom time old soldier hobby has been
bread , meat anti drink for twenty years.
