perhaps at Dhu Heartache, in Scot

Constantinople, June 0. The situa
tion of affairs so far as the settlement
of questions in dispute between the
Turkish government and the represen
tatives of the powers regarding reform
in Armenia is concerned, shows consid
erable improvement today. This im
provement is undoubtedly due to the
final attitude of the powora in positively '
refusing to accept any modification of
the program which has been mapped
out for the improvement of the condi
tion of Armenia.

it is not believed any Berious damage

The greatest excitement prevailed in
the streets shortly after the earthquake

their most valuable possessions, which
they had carried with them in their
flight from their homes. Many people
fell on their knees in the middle of the
streets and prayed, while others seemed
too terrified to do anything but rush
about and add to the feeling of panio
which prevailed. The entire polioe
force of the city was promptly turned
out and the authorities did everything
possible to allay the alarm. So far as
known, tho shocks were only severe
enough to shake down movable articles
from shelves, sideboards, etc., although
there was considerable swaying of

President Sonlos tho Application of ths
Iowa Pension Swindler.
"Washington, June 6. The president
has denied the application for pardon in
the case of George M. Van Leuven.who
was convicted in the United States
court for the Northern district of Iowa
and sentenced Dec. 15 to two years' im
prisonment and to pay a fine of $1,000
for pension frauds. This is a celebrated
case. Van Leuven was convicted in 37
cases. His pardon is asked on account
of ill health, his physician and the war
den of the prison certifying to his seri
ous condition. In denying the applica
tion for a pardon, the president says:
"This convict was leniently treated by
the courts and I do not think the repre
sentations as to his health are sufficient
to justify his pardon."
