Attack by the ICselte Turks In the Town.
CaNEA. March Cl-TOe fighting In the vicinity
of Malum continued throughout the day, It
was especially desperate at 3 o'clock this after
noon In the village of Tsicalaria. where Um in
surgents et fire to a number of Turkish houses.
Tbo Insurgents are now occupying Malaxa.
The European warships shelled them this after
1 noon, tbn firing lasting about ten minutes. The
insurgents, however, held tholr ground closo to
the rnlnsof the blockhouse from which they
I droTo the Turkish garrison last night, and did
nqt seem to greatly wind the bombardment.
When tho Turkish troops evacuated the block
house they sot flro to it in order that It might
not furnish a shelter to their enemies. It was,
howcTer. body wrecked by the tire of the Insur
gents. It is evident that the Turkish troops here are
nq malrii for the insurgents. A body of troops
made an attempt to-day to gain the heights
above Nerok-Ouru, where the Keratldl block
house U situated. With this position and the
ono at Malaxa in their possession the Insur
gents would be able to completely blockade
Caeca from the land aide.
The troop had gone only a little distance
whe.i they wero attached by insurgents, who
druri them back. Later another attempt was
made to reach the heights, but this, too. proved
unucce-afuL
A body of Insurgents made an attack upon the
Turkish cordon at Halepa. The Turka had a
number of mountain guns, and tha dre from
them prevented the Insurgents from coming to
clow quarters. It was this alone which saved
the Moslems from defeat.
MontevanUa and llalepa are both within
range of the guns of tha insurgents, who con
tinue to shell both places.
This cxcnlngpart of Malaxa waa blown up
with dynamite, and the rest of the town is burn
ing. Taa Turkish warships In Suda Bay are
bombarding the Insurgents, but their fire ap
jars to be wholly ineffective
Malaxa is one of the town mentioned by the
foreign Admirals In their proclamation that
must not be attacked by Greek troops or Insur
gents. Tho Admirals declared that the fortlfloa
' tions. which wero needed to "maintain security
and quiet," must not be llred upon; otherwise
they wonld ne force against the attackers.
it was the disobedience of the Insurgents to
this proclamation that led tha foreign warships
to bombard them. These vessels fired ninety
shells, three of which fell within tho fort.
After the place had been evacuated by Its gar
rison, which numbered sixty-four men, the
troops scattered In any direction that led to the
i oast in order to escape from their pursuers.
One of them reached Xerok-Ouru and eighteen
managed to maka their way to Suda. The oth
ers have not been heard from, and it Is supposed
that they were killed.
The lluisulmafls hers, and they comprise al
most the entire population, are in a state of
grvut excitement. Ther fear that the insur
gents, rlatmt by their capture and destruction of
Mc-axa. w ill atiaUt Ksratidl.
X force of 30O Highlanders waa landed at
Candia to-day, and their appearance In the city
cn'-iscd tha most intense exciuroent. The popu
lace were evidently Ignorant of their coming
until they were in the town.
Thi Turkish troops were also at a loss to ac
re'.; tit for their presence, and apparently
thought that they were about to be attached.
7k Turkish oflccre had much difficulty in pre
venting their men from firing on the British
troop.
The garrison troops rushed to the shore from
all direction., loading their rifles as they ran
and utterinp threats against the British. The
Litter remained perfectly cool, and eventually
i tilt irritntlon was calmed.
AH danger, howeter. Is not ovs. The Turk
ish troops do not appear to grasp the fact that
the presence of the foreigners is practically the
only thing that saves them from annihilation.
I Swarms of Turkish soldiery armed to the teeth
are parading tha streets, giving voice to their
fierce hatred of all infidels.
The slightest spark may at any moment pro
duce a fatal outbreak. It would be a queer
commentary on Turkish gratitude to find the
McIcms and their Christian allies engaged in a
lioody religious feud, and it would further com--.ihalc
the situation.
A number of Italian troops have also arrived
at Cindia.
The foreign Admirals to-day issued a general
cnlcrto the international reinforcements, ex
torting them to set an example to the Cretans,
bora the powers havo charged them to protect
i from tho horrors of a civil war.
LJ The order concludes: "The enterprise we are
embarked upon wClbe difficult and often pain
ful. We rely upon you to defend the interests

CoxsTANTtNOfLK, March 33. Further and
probably more accurate details of the recent mas
sacre of Armenians ntTokat, In tho Slvas district
of Anatolia, have been received at tha Armenian
Patriarchate here. The number of victims was
fully 700. Theso figures were obtained from
reliable persons In Tokat and the vicinity.
Sir Philip Curric, tha British Ambassador,
made n most vigorous protest against the massa
cre In a note to the Porte, which Is said to have
been the strongest ever delivered by an Am
bassador to the Turkish Government. Tho re
sult of his action was shown to-day when tha
Sultan ordered the dismissal and immediate ar
rest of the Turkish officials In Tokat who are
suspected of complicity In the massacre, and
the appointment of a special commission to try
them. It is believed that tha British Ambassa
dor will watch the trial closely to seo that It
doaa not prove a farce, as so many trials of Mos
lem officials charged with the murders of Christ
ians have been.
Mgr. Ormanlan, tbo Armenian Patriarch, has
made a protest to tha Sultan against tho mur
ders at Tokat, and has added force to his protest
by Insisting that the Sultan shall accept his
resignation, which was tendered some time ago.
At that time the Sultan refused to accept It, and
promised the Patriarch that further concessions
would bo made to the Armenians, ills Majesty
asked, however, that the granting of these con
cessions bo deferred until after Easter. Tha
massacre at Tokat followed.
Eight Armenians wero arrested here to-day as
a measure of precaution, the Government fear
ing that the news of the Tokat massacre might
precipitate an outbreak. Tha prisoners aro sus
pected of having been engaged in an attempt to
make a demonstration hero.

tVllllaaa K. Allen.
William E. Allen was expelled from the Con
solidated Stock and Petroleum Exchange last
night " tor obvious fraud," as President Charles
George Wilson said after tho thirty-four direc
tors of the Exchange had dispersed. The direc
tors bad been in session from i In the afternoon
until 0 o'clock at night. Mr. Allan had been a
member of the Exchango since Feb. 1, 1884. and
was senior partner of the tlrru of Allen & Fosdlck,
which was organized May It, 1805. The offices
or the firm were at 57 Broadway.
The expulsion of Mr. Allen was the result of
his dealings on the Exchange for Mrs. J. D. F.
Nash of Bridgeport. According to the testi
mony presented to the directors of the Exchange
yesterday Mrs. Nash some timu auo deposited
with Mr. Allen securities valued at $47,000 as
tnnivin for speculations In stocks. Mr. Allen
obtained a Uun of 3 l.OOO on the securities from
the Seaboard National Bank, and that amount
represented tha actual cash which Mrs. Nash
had on deposit with Mr. Allen. He did not ap
parently have a great Idea of Mrs. Nash ability
to get sound information as the course of tha
stock market. When sh gave a spwifle order
to buy or aell stocks Mr. Allen, according to the
testimony, " coppered" the order with a fellow
I broker on the Exchange, who cleared the stocks
and accepted from Allen the regular commis
sions. It waa alleged though that Mrs. Nash
was constantly a winner, and therefore Allen
was constantly a loser, and that when she de
manded a settlement of ber accounts Allen did
not respond.
Mrs. Nash thereupon made a complaint to
President Wilson. lie Instituted an Investiga
tion of the Clearing IltHiae sheets of Allen's
transaction, and erl'ned tha be trad "eop-pen-d"
Mr. Nash's orders, or.a4 lfle'callBdon
IhnExrhonge. be "crossed" order with her, all
which was held to bo detrimental to the good
name of the Exchange. President Wilson there
upon summoned Mr. Allen to appear before the
directors.
They confronted him with the teatlmony
against him. Ho insisted that Mrs. Nash owed
him f 10.000 on the various transactions, and
said tnat if sbe would pay him that amount he
would take up the loan with the Seaboard
National Bank and return to Mrs. Nash the se-
entitle- deposited with him. Mrs. Nash put her
case In the hands of ex-Aaaistant District Attor
ney Bartow 3. Weeks. The directors rendered
their verdict last night against Allen.
bfnee the New York eUock Exchange began ita
i warfare pn bucket shops, tbe Consolidated Stock
and Petroleum Exchange hue either suspended
or expelled n number of its members for "bucket
shop businciK" and other offences. The direc
tors of the Consolidated Stock and Petroleum
Exchange bae bvuu congratulated on the rigor
ous course the; have pursued against the
offenders. The directors of the Exchange, how
ever, nre !oier worker; than the Governors of
the New York Stock Exchange, their meetings
last very murh longer tli.in Iboseotthe Gover
nors of the New York .Stuck Exchange, and tbey
take very much more time in arriving at a ver
dict. This, to a icrtain Attent. Is expensive, for
the reason that the directors are barred from
going home to dinner, awl they do not believe it
wise to pass Judgment on a fellow member when
their stomachs are empty. Many precipitate
verdicts, it was said, and no doubt a few harsh
ones, have been reached by Jurors and directors
voting on empty stomachs. So when the
director) of the Consolidated have heard the
evidence for and against a member they sus
pend proceedings for lunth, which is served
usually between 7 and o'clock In the evening.

Albany, March S3. The Greater Now York
charter and tho commission's suppkmentary
bills, which havo already passed tho Assembly,
wore passed by the Senate to-day. They wero
sent off this afternoon to the soveral cities af
fected for their approval or disapproval. Tho
portod allowed for their consideration by tho
city authorities Is fifteen days. If disapproved
by any of them they will Immediately be re
passed and signed by Gov. Black. Tbo voto on
tho charter was SO to 0.
Tbe conviction of tho up-country Republicans
that they wero striking a fatal blow at the su
premacy of tho country districts In the Legisla
ture and at Republican control of any part of
the consolidated territory found voice, but with
one exception they voted for tho charter. Tho
Tammany members, who profess to bollovo that
the charter gives the greater city into tho bands
of their organisation, voted against tt, with ono
exception. Tho Brooklyn members, Democrats
and Republicans, who fought consolidation In the
Senate last year, voted for tha chartor, with tho
exception of Senator McCarrcn. The Republican
up-country sentiment was expressed by Senators
Malby, Hal no, and Mullln.
Senator Malby, who lives In St. Lawrence
county, declared that the passage of the bill was
art act of political suicide for the Republican
party. Consolidation brought an advantage to
no one except Tammany Hall. "But. Mr. Presi
dent," he continued, " I Know when I am licked.
For soma reason or other tho Republican party
has been committed to this piece of absurd leg
islation. I am willing to take my draught of
the fatal hemlock along with my associates and
will voto In the affirmative."
Senator Raines said tho passage of tho bill
meant that many Republican heajs would be
brought on chargers to the Democratic, camp.
Some of them, be said, with a glance at cn.itor
Pavey, he would not be sorry to see fall. He
also voted for the btlL
Senator Mullln of Watertowu expressed simi
lar views, but refused tho hemlock and voted in
the negative. His was the only Republican vote
cast against the III.'.
Tbe Democrats divided, five toting for the bill
and eight against it. Senator Cantor, the Demo
cratic leader In the Senate, cast tho only Tam
many vote for it. He said that be had always
favored consolidation. Although thu charter
bad many Imperfections, and although he bad
triad In vain to secure a single-headed Pollco
Commission and single-chambered Assembly, he
could uot bring himself to cast a vote which
would mean the defeat of the entire project.
Just before the final vote was taken Senator
Cantor moved to recommit the charter to tbe
Cities Committee, which should sit during the
summer, perfect the measure, and report next
winter. This wss defeated by a vole of HO to 1J.
Senator Pavey, who fought consolidation last
year, voted for tbo charter. Ho took occasion to
boom tbe Citixena' Union, and declared that If
the regular Itepublicans wotiid Indorse the
ticket to he nominated by that association thu
city would not bs given ovor to Tammany, and
tba results feared by Senator Raines and Senator
Malby would be averted.
Tho twenty-sixth vote for the charter, which
made up the constitutional majority In Its favor,

Curious Xetlee from Fhotermpber HendeUooxn
to Ills Customers.
Tho former customers of II. K. Mendelssohn,
tho London photographer, ho has for several
years hod a branch nt tho corner of Forty-fifth
street and Fifth avonue.were surprised to re
ceive from him tho following notice:
Mncit l, 1807.
Madave: I havo decided to discontinue my
studio In America. I beg to call your attention
to tho disposition of your negatives.
I shall be pleased to sell thorn to you or J ou
can havo them free of charge by ordering ono
doion copies.
I havu often from photographers for my nega
tives, but pref or to offer thpm first to my pa
trons, so that you cannot blumo for any un
flensantness that may occur In future. Yours
ruly, -II. E, Mesdelbsoun.
As tbo persons who havo In the past been pho
tographed by Mr. Mendelssohn wero not to any
extent In professional life, but principally mem
bers of families In society here, the Implication
In the last paragraph waa rather alarming to
such as did not feel called upon to protect them
selves from "any unpleasantness" by buying
the negatives of tholr photographs or by order
ing anew a dozen copies of tbo pictures that had
been taken of them. The alternative of doing
this or suffering from "any unpleasantness that
may occur In future" was somewhat too
sharply set forth to make thoso persons who
neither bought tbe negatives nor ordered mora
photographs feel comfortable.
A St'X reporter yesterday asked Mr. Mendels
sohn what his letter meant, and If he wero at
liberty to sell the negath es of his customers in a
way that might lead to "any unpleasantness"
for them.
"The negatives of a photograph are my prop
erty," he said, " to be used only In a certain way.
I have the right to make copies on the order of
the original sitters, but I have no right to sell
them to anybody else. Tho photographers who
want to buy my negatives want them only for
tho purpoic of making copies when they aro
ordered. They have no right to use them In any
way that I could not. My letter meant simply
that I was going to sell the negatives. They aro
not to be used, however. In any way they could
not have been used by me."

The Long Island City Police force Assaulted
While Escorting Contractor Karnaugh's
Aspbnlt Carts to tbe rem t Club
Mas liaised .or n Lawbreaker Arrested.
Throo carts of nsphnlt wero taken from tho
works of tho Barber Asphalt Paving Company,
at the foot of Sixth Btrcot, Long Island City, yes
terday afternoon, nnd transported across tho
Thirty-fourth streot ferry. The, mombors of tho
Cartmcn's Union nnd their sympathisers wore
out In force, nnd tho services ot all of Long
Island City's pollco forco nnd a detail ot men
from the steamboat squad of this city wero re
quired to keep tho poaco. The steamboat squad
manned overy ferryboat In servlco on the Thirty
fourth street route.
It had been announced that the first cart
would start about 1 o'clock In tho afternoon.
At that hour tbo neighborhood ot tbo asphalt
works was patrollod by policemen, whllo tho
men opposed to Contractor Kavanagh were also
out in force. The eartmen wero In an ugly
mood. The presence of such a largo forco of po
licemen Indicated that all efforts at vlolenco
would bo chocked, but tho Lang Island City po
lk o permitted themselves to bo struck down
with bricks nnd other missiles and not a club
was raised. Policemen wero wounded and al
most felled In the ranks, while their assailants
smiled ticflani-e at tho guardians ot tho peace.
When tho first curt left the asphalt works tho
mob started toward It with the evident inten
tion of dragging tho driver from bis seat. There
wero cries of " Scabl" " Scabl" but tho pollco
turned upon tho rioters nnd they fell lwck. The
cart proceeded along West avenue. When near
Fourth street nn iron stare log sailed through
the air and struck Policeman Chrlstophor Whlto
squarely In the bnik, almost staggering him. At
tho ferry gates some ono In tbo crowd threw a
brick at the police. It struck Policeman John
Coonan on tho head, knocking off his helmet
and inflicting a severe wound. Tbe rioters
cheered and those nearest to the police lino
Jeered at thu injured man, hut the assault passed
unnoticed h the police.
A squad of the rioters entered tho ferry house,
and paying their fare got on the boat ahead of
tho cart. But Just there they met Now York
trfillcemen. who were not to be trilled with,
when the. boat reached thu middle nf thorhor
several of tbe rioters attempted to leave the
cabin and pass through the driveway where the
cart was standing, but the police Mopped them.
While they were parleying with the officers
" Scott v," Mayor Glcason's valet, and another
mm tried to pass through.
"ntnp right where you are," commanded one
of thastcamboat squad. "Scotty" and bis com
panion baited, but protested that having paid
their faro they could go where they pleased on
the boat.
"You stay Just where you aro or you will go
overboard, said a New York policeman, and
there was no further attempt to create a dis
turbance during the trip.
The second cart did not reach the ferry, on tho
Long Island side without trouble. While going
along West avenue two women stood on the
curb. Each bail an nrniful of coal hidden under
her idiawl. As tbe t-ollce passed, one nf the two
women shook her list and shouted: "Oh I you
damn scabs. I'll tlx vout" Then sbe raised her
arm in tho air and threw a big piece of coal at
the lino of police. The missile struck Policeman
Anthony Woods square on the cheek. He stag-
fered from tbe blow and fell back, breaking the
Inc. No order being given to charge the mob.
Woods resumed his place and continued on. At
the ferry entrance a rioter, said to be the owner
of a number of carts, attempted to cut the har
ness, nnd as he waa pulled away be made a
lunge with bis knife nt one of the horses. Ho
failed to stab tha horss-ind waa put.ho.1 aside by
tho pollen. No attempt was made to place him
under arrest.
While escorting tbe third cart to tbe ferry
nothing but tha bad aim of the strikers saved
the pollco from being struck down by rocks and
bricks thrown at them. The rioters were per
muted to gatlior at will about the entrance to
the Thirty-fourth street ferry in l-ing Island
City. They interfered with the regular traffic
over tho line, but the police made no effort to
drive tbemaway.
Contractor ICavnnagh said last night that he
would rend out more carts to-duv. and that bo
would keep -ending them out. Tbo polico will
bo ou hand to protect his men.

As tbe cart proceeded uptown tho number of
strikers and their sympathisers increased, and
when it reached Forty-seventh street and Lex
ington avenue there were about 1,000 persons
In tho crowd. Tbo strikers and their sy tnpathiz
