Mr. Yowell in a statement issued
to day charges the Turks with unjust
and unfriendly treatment of Amen
cans and cruelties and outrages against
Christians in Asia Minor. His state
"The American deportations were the
culmination of a long series of un?
friendly acts. They are the prelude to
fresh Turkish outrages against Christ
ianss in Amo Minor. Tiie Turks, en?
couraged by the vaccilations of the
Allies during the post Armistice per
iod, are getting bolder m their intol?
erance against the minorities. I'nless
outside Interference is forthcoming,
the final chapter m the history of
Christmas will shortly be completed.
No Reason Given for Arrest
"I had been director at Kharput.
since October. 1 was arrested March
5 for reasons unknown and d?porter)
from the country. I was preceded by
three assistants, who were notified tha/
unless they left the country voluntarily
they would be forcibly deported.
"All the twenty Americans in Khar?

officials with the utmost discoutesy and
injustice, notwithstanding their work
has been extended to the Noslems. Pn
tiests were admitted to the hospitals
if the Turks wanted them adnntti I.
Nany Christian refugees, terribly ill,
were turned away to lie outside the

by the military without explanation.
"The Armenians in this district are
in a state of virtual slavery. They
?ire not permitted to travel within the
country, and I have had to return $75,
000 to people in America who for?
warded it to pay the traveling ex
penses of relatives desiring to leave
the country. All the property of Ar?
menians, victims of deportations, is
confiscated by the Turks.
Denied Use of Courts
"The Armenians are denied the use,
of the courts. A recent law prevents I
Christians from inheriting property,,
except from father or brother. Other i
properties po to the government.
"Christians are thrown into jail
with t'ie purpose of extorting ransom
from relatives. Christian women are
forced into harems without, the right
of appeal to any tribunal.
"The Turkish officials for six months
have had no Salaries. They say that
the only way to obtain money consists
of blackmailing Christians.
"The conditions of the Creeks is
worse than that of the Armenians. The,
sufferings of the Greeks deoorted from ?

On Confirmation of

Up Pending Reed's Views

From The Tribune'* Washington Bureau
WASHINGTON, May t. The Senate
Finance Committee a* a meeting to day
took up the nom ?nation of Nal Gold?
stein to he collector of internal reve?
nue for the St. Louis district, officially
known as the 1st District of Missouri.
The committee in all probability will
report the nomination favorably, but
there will be a contest over it. when it
reaches the Senate.
Senator Spencer. Republican, of Mis?
souri, who sponsored the nomination
of Goldstein, and who strongly com?
mend; him, is desirous of having him
confirmed as speedily as possible. At
to-day's meeting, which was attended
by the Republican members, it had
been aboul decided to make a favor?
able report, when Senator McCumber,
the chairman, called attention to the
fact that under the usual practice the
colleague of Senator Spencer should be
consulted and asked if he had objec?
tions. It was therefore decided to as?
certain the views of Senator Reed, who
is in Missouri.
Whether Senator Reed will fight the
confirmation of Goldstein is not dis?
closed here. It is generally assumed
he will do so. He is a number of the
Senator La Follette, one of the Repub?
lican members of the committee, indi?
cated that he desired opportunity lo

for the office. He is expected to oppose

It was the understanding that il was
Lowden campaign money. Goldstein
testified he did rot, use It, and that he
? intended to turn it over the Lowden
organization if Lowden should be nom?
inated, and hand it hack if the Illinois
man was defeated.
The matter became prominent in the
days of the Chicago convention and in
the investigation by a Senate commit?
Senator Spencer feels that Goldstein
was done an injustice in the affair
and commands him us a high type of
citizen and one fully qualified for the
ofhco to which he has been appointed.
However, there is no doubt that Demo?
