THE CANE DARBIEN& '
Gladstone's Strong Denutnlate of the 8
OutraIgs in Arwnia,. n
London, Dec. 29.-Mr. Gladstone to
day, speaklhg to a deputation of the
English Armenian committee at Ha- tl
warden, said: "It is not indifference F
which has thus far led me to do noth- d
ing in regard to affairs reported from 0
Armenia. Rumors have gone abroad n
of horrible outrages in Armenia and Il
the Impulse of every man has been to
give vent to a burst of strong feeling. Ii
But I am convinced that in a grave b
case of this kind, every nation is most fi
appropriately represented by its gov- a
e'ament, and it is their duty not to
asaume that all allegations are true, h
but to wait for the result of the exami- g
nation, and see whether they are based II
upon ascertained facts. g
The intelligence which has reached
me tends toward a conclusion, how- k
ever, which I hope may not be verified, h
and that is that the outrages, sins and tl
abominations of 1876 in Bulgaria have
been repeated in Armenia. If this is o
correct. It is time one general shout of
execration, directed against such deeds C
of wickedness, should rise from out- a
raged humanity, and force itself to the v
ears of the sultan and make him senl- p
ble, if anything could make him sensi
ble. of the madness of his course. b
"If reports are established. it will b
more than ever stand before the world a
that there is no lesson, however se- ti
vere, that could teach certain people tl
the necessity of obserr ing, to some de- ii
gree, the laws of decency, humanity and *
Justice. If the allegations are true, It a
will stand as if written in letters of
Iron on the rocks of the world, that a
government which could countenance
and cover the perpetration of these out
rages, is a disgrace to Mahommed
whom the Turks profess to follow: a
disgrace to civilization at large, and a 8
curse to mankind.
"This is strong language and ought ,
to be used when facts are known.
However, we keep our Judgments in
suspense until the truth Is known. But '
as the evidence grows and the case h
darkens, my hopes have dwindled, antd
as long as I have voice I hope it will I
be raised upon such occasions in be- n
half of humanity." a
