SATURDAY, MAY 15, 1909
Slain in Adana Alone.
Reirut, April 2". The situation
in Asiatic Turkey if extremely
serious. How many thousands
have been massacred cannot even
be estimated, because the distur
bances have been so widespread
that it is impossible to secure de
tails of the happenings.
The latest estimates of the num
ber killed in the vilayet of Adana
reaches approximately 25,000 and
thousands have been slain in the
towns of other districts. The state
of siege at several of the places has
brought the inhabitants near star
vation and each day brings its
tales of further atrocities and the
depths of misery and despair to
which the savagery of the fanatics
has brought the people.
Several warships are now in
these waters, but the disorders are
so far-reaching that the efforts of
the powers to restore normal con
ditions have as yet hardly been
felt. The French cruiser Jules
Ferry arrived to-day and left al
most immediately for Latakia,
where swarms of refugees are pour
ing in. British, French and Ger
man warships are at other ports
and marines have been landed to
quell the disorders at the more im
One of the missionaries at Alex
ahdretta, Mr. Kennedy, with 450
Turkish troops, has gone to the re
lief of Deurtnl, an Armenian vil
lage on the coast, where 10,000
persons within the walls are besieg
ed by JniinciTse hands of Kurds
and Circassians. Only two days
ago a British warship returned
from that place, the Governor of
the district having refused t tie
commander permission to land a
relief party. The water supply
has been cut off from the town and
the besieged are suffering greatly.
The children are drinking out of
animal tracks after a shower
There was inces-ant tiring on
Greek subjects sent under an eS'
The Armenian village of Kessab
has been burned. All the men
and ninny women and children
have been slain. The American
property at Kessab was destroyed.
Miss Chambers, an American mis
sionary, is safe.
A British warship has been or
dered from Alexandretta to Sndiah
where conditions have becoir.i
worse. All the property of the
Christians at Djebel Bereket has
been destroyed. The total loss is
unknown, but it will be enormous.
Reports say that Iladjin, in the
vilayet of Adana, is on fire. There
are five American women quarter
ed here, including Miss Lambert,
who has been sending out appeals
for help; Mifs Virginia A. Billings
and Miss Bowman. Permission
has been refused by the authorities
to Messrs. Lawson and Chamber
also American missionaries, to go
to their relief. Frantic appeals for
protection and for food are coming
in from all sections.
Call for Bids
Honolulu, May (!. A few minutes
before the liner Korea sailed for the
Coast Tuesday evening, Marston
Campliell, Superintendent of 1'uhlh'
Works, was asked when work was
to lie started on the construction o
the royal mausoleum, to contain the
bodies of the dead nlii of Hawaii for
which the liCgislature of 1907 autho
rized an appropriation of 125,000
Mr. CampU'll stated that his depart
ment would advertise for bids on the
work immediately, thisU ing one o
the things which was li ft over from
the last period, and w hich w ill he
handled with the greatest despatch
No action was taken on the matte
by the last legislature, so Caniphcll
has decided to go ahead with'h
share ot the work, l he lull appro
priating the money provided that
the mausoleum should contain tin
bodies of the dead royalty of Hawaii
This has Im'cii construed by some
P4ean that the niemliers. of the royal
Library Members Favor
The Consolidation Plan.
Honolulu, May 7. If Andrew
Carnegie or any other philanthro
pist makes a donation of $100 000
tor a library building, Honolulu
will have a splendid public iifsti
tution, for the trustees of the Hono
lulu t.ihrrry and Heading Boom
Association, which has been in ex
istence since 187'J, Mibmitted the
imposition of the Territory to the
members of the association last
night, and these gave their unan
imous approval to the idea. The
..ibrary Act, passed by the late
Legislature, provides for a free cir
culating library and for an appro
priation of $10,000, presumably to
The members ot the Honolulu
library and Reading Room Asso
ciation last night gave their ap
proval to the idea of consolidation
with the Library of Hawaii and
authorized the trustees to come to
any reasonable agreement with the
representatives of t he latter organi
zation. While the members of the
local library association feel the
need of a great public library here,
they do not intend surrendering
their accumulations of years with
out they are assured that the pro
position will go through. The Ter
ritory's appropriation of $10,000 at
the last session of the Legislature
is to be used during the period be
tween JutiP of 1910 and June of
1911. It is understood that, if the
consolidation idea is carried out to
the extent which is planned, the
Legislature will hereafter make an
annual npproprhtion of that
Everything, however, is condi
tional upon the donation of $100,-
000, or the securing of that sum of
money in some manner, for the
construction of a building. Gov
ernor Frear had a conference with
Andrew Carnegie while he was in
the Fast a short time ago, and the
great philanthropist was then sup
posed to view very favorably the
idea of giving largely for a library
here. Should this money be re
ceived, the Honolulu Library and
Reading Room Association and the
Library of Hawaii will consolidate,
the present organization, while re
taining control of its assets, allow
ing them to be used for the benefit
of the new organization. Adver
family at present living shall not be
interred in the costly tomb which
the legislature will have provided,
the bill lieing interpreted by several
to make only those alii who had
crossed the great line before its pas
sage eligible to sleep their last sleep
in the new mausoleum.
There is also said to be consider
able trouble in store for the one or
ones who select the list of royal
bodies which will lie in the new
tomb. Kx-Quecn Liliuokalani was
given equal authority with Superin
tendent Campliell in the work of
getting the mausoleum, but it was
apparently tacitly understood that,
while Campliell was to design and
construct the monument, it would
fall to the Queen, as the head of tlie
family, to select those who were eli
gible to lie with royalty in the last
sleep. The Queen, it is understood,
sent in a list of names several
months ago, but this did not fit in
very well with the territorial idea of
the proiiosition. It seems that, ill
the list submitted by the Queen,
there were a couple ot very pro
minent members of the family whose
names were strangely not mention
home settlement must have licen
arrived at, however, for Campliell
stated that the work would proceed.

Honolulu, May 0. F. E. Haley
left yesterday on the Alameda for
San Francisco to manage the distri
bution of the present crop of the
Honolulu Pineapple Company of
Pupukea, whose crop of pines will
amount to twelve or Jourteen hund
It is designed to ship the fresh
fruit from Pupukea direct to San
Francisco, from which city it will
be distributed in the markets which
the company expects to establish in
other sections of the country. C.
Ginaca of the same company leaves
here on the Hilonian. sailinu on
May IS, and he will join Mr. Haley.
Offices will be ojicned in San
Francisco and a storehouse ojicned
for the reception of the loads of fresh
pines. 1 hey will repack the fruit
in that city and forward it to what
ever points are available.
iherupuKca tract was an area
U'longing to the government a few
years ago, but opened for homestead-
ing. Those who took up lots found
the land admirable for pineappli
growing, and this season's crop is
satisfactory in every way. The Oahti
railway company has lieen building
1 large nuinoer 01 extra imx cars
, 1 . .
just to handle this crop.
A JOURNALISTIC CIIK'KKN
it is (did liow our journalistic
cliickcus sometimes conic lionic to
roost, and a sample is at liand 1 1 it
publication of the "American Asso
ciation for International Concilation
for February, which contains .111
article on "American Iimorancc of
Oriental Languages, "wherein occurs
the following paragraph relating to
"Let me give one illustration that
I have already published elsewhere.
About a year ago, a correspondent
of a New York painr in Hawaii
learned that the Japanese there at a
great gathering on one of their
national holidays listened with pro
found attention to the rending of
some Imperial Rescript, and he
managed to get this sentence: "In
case of emergency give yourselves
courageously to the State.'' He at
once wired his pajicr that the ex-
soldiors of Japan had just received
an order from their Kmiieror to Ik
ready for any emergency, and that
this could Jiavc no other meaning
than getting ready for an attack on
the I'nited States! When this was
duly and impressively published,
the New Yolk paper was informed
by a lady who had long lived in
Japan as a teacher in one of the
highest schools for girls in Jajian,
that this Rescript was promulgated
in 18.U for especial use in educa
tional work, that it is read on
national holidays in all the schools
of the Fmpire, including mission
schools, and that in a place like
Hawaii where are some M Jap
anese laborers, it is a most natural
thing to Jiave this moral Rescript
read. Yet her letter of explanation
never apisared in the papir.'"
