Gladstone'sStrong Denunciation of the^Outrages in Armenia.
London.Dec. L^9.- Mr. Cladstone to^^day, speaking to a deputation of the^ICngllsh Armenian committee at lla-^wardeii. said: ^It Is not Indifference^which has thus far led me to do noth^^ing In regard to affairs reported from^Armenia. Humors have gone ubroad^of horrible outrages in Armenia and^the impulse of every man has been to^give vent to a burst of strong feeling.^Hut I am convinced that In a grave^case of this kind, every nation is most^appropriately represented by its gov^^ernment, ano^ it is their duly not to^assume thut all allegations are true,^but to wait for the result of the exami^^nation, and see w het her t'ley ale based^upon ascertained facta.
Theintelligence which has leached^me tends toward a conclusion, how^^ever, which I hope may not be verltied,^ami that Is that Hie oiitiages, sins and^abominations of lKTti ill Kulgarla have^been repeated In Armenia. If this Is^correct. II Is time one general shout of
execration,directed against such dIs
ofwickedness, should rise from out^^raged humanity, and force itself to th-^ears of Hie sultan and make him sensi^^ble, If anything could make him sensi^^ble, of Hie madness of Ills course.
Ifle|^irts are established. It will^more than ever stand before the world^thut then- Is no lesson, however se^^vere, that could brash certain people^the necessity of oliserv ing. to some de^^gree, tin- laws of decency, humanity und^Justice If the allegations are true. It^will stand as If written in lettcis at^Iron on Hie locks of the world, that a^govel iiinclit Which could countenance^and cover the perpetration of these out^^rages. Is a disgrace to Mahommed -^whom the Turks profess lo follow: a^disgrace to civilization at large, and a^curse to mankind.
ThisIs strong language and ought^lo be used when facts are known.^However, wv keep nur judgments In^suspense until the truth is known. Hut^as the evidence grows and Hie rase^darkens, my hopes have dwindled, and^as long as I have voice I hope It will^be raised upon such occasions 111 be^^half of humanity.
