PLANS FOR A RISING,
Armenians Are Preparing
London, April 17. A correspondent
writing from Armenia
undor dato of March 17th says:
I havo traveled many hundreds of
miles in Russia and Porsia nnd
havo yisitod Armonian colonio9
as far oast as tho'Oaspian and a&
far south ns tho oity of Tohorau,
and havo learned, after tho most
careful investigation and verification
of tho facts, that tho Armenian
quostion will soon roaoh
an ttcuto and painful ciisls In fact,
Armenia is preparing for war.
Tho revolutionary paity has
now both monoy and guns. During
tho past eight wooks money
has poured iuto the revolutionary
treasury in a stondy stream from
tho Armenian colonies and from
cities in Porsia.
Tho control idua of tho plan of
campaign is n goneral uprising of
Armenians throughout tho Turkish
Empiin s inio timo during
tho month of May. Tho loadors
piomisjd the people in tho custom
part of Aimonia that tho ohiof
nttaok will bo niodo in tho oity of

brunt of tho fighting will bo dono
by tho Armenian rosidonU there
in, but this may bo only a

hearted at Van.Bitlis and Mousli.

For a handful of untrained

would Boom to bo tho utmost
folly, yot thopurposo is not to
bring Turkey to' terms by fighting
but to settle the quarrel by
intorvontion of tho Europoan
powers. Beforo the revolution is
throo months old tho powers,
it is belioved, will be
a hand in tho conflict,
for tho cruelty, tho
atrocity, tho outrago, tho blood,
lust and butcliery of tho struggle
will bo so horrible that Christian
humanity will interfere. Arme

For tho most part the revolu
tionary loadors aro of tho younger
gonoration of Armonians, who
arguo that it is no Worse that a
few thousand Armonians should
be killed at on'o time than that
thoy should be killed separately
during a period of a fow months
To what extent the pluns of tko
revolutionary leaders uro approved'
by tho Armouious at largo it is
difficult to tell. I soriously doubt
if theso plans aro known in detail
to morn than 5 por cont of the
Armonians. Still, there aro gonuino
patriots who beliovo that to free
Armenia from tho dreadful position
in which she is sunk thoy
must surrender), samo of thoir
outruge and death.
Thero is ia Europo that
Bussia desires to muko the
Armenians Itusaiun subjects by
annexing the eastern ond of
Turkey. Curiously enough, tip's
belief is not sham! by tho
Russians of the Caucasian region.
The (Georgians certainly would
resent any further increase in the
Armenian population. Tho business
mothodB of the Armouians
aro not generally approved by
Goorgiuns and Russians. It is
therefore bolioved not likely that
Russia wants tho Armenians, but
whether or not alio wants tho
Turkish territory which tho
Armonians inhabit is quite
For tho most part, tho average
Armonian is anxious to havo some
othor man fight his battles, and
ho is willing to beliovo that
England and Russia aro only
waiting for a chanco to step in
and dismember the Turkish
Tho Airaonianl newspaper in
Russia and Penia contain no hint,
however romoto, of their preparations,
but contain only denunciations
of Turkish tyranny and
demands for theonforcomont of
tho 01st nrtiolo of tho Boil in

ess discreet. In Tifiis ospooially
thoy fill themsolvos up with vodka
and go about tho stroot clamoring
for an Armenian) king. As the
timo for tho revolutionary uprising
approaches tho words of tho
Armonian Catholic, Mgr.

"Armenia is in soro distress, but
hor Bufferings will bo at an end."

with tho sentiments of

Mr. Eustis spoko of tho inroads

upon tho French markot. A conspicuous
official had explained to
him rocontly, ho said, that American
wines, mado in such immense
quantities beyond tho
Rocky mountains, wore in many
casos supplanting French winos
"If thoro woro to bo an international
confossional," Mr. Eustis
said, "in which nations wore to
confess freely, tho United States,
am suro, would have fower sins
to avow than any othor nation on

wo see in America as compared
with Europo ? Wo can say that
no weaker nation over suffered
from aggression on tho part of the
United States. Our Govornmont
metes out tho simo justice to tho

"As far as foreign poworB are
concerned I may say I do not

The press would toom with snoors

Coming Events In Boating
Thoro is at Lst a small broozo
m our boating circles. Tno throo
boat clubs havo got thoir boats
and they claim that thoy havo
thoir crows. Ah a matter of conrso
the Hoahtnis are ahoad. They
aro in full training and it is reported
that thoir new crow is up
to date. At tho same timo wo
loarnihatlho Mji ties still know
how to pull an oar and that ovon
tho "babios" of tho Loilani are
ready to show musolos. Thoro
aro somo. prospects for a raco on
July 4th and it is to bo hopod
that it will como off. Boating
has bocomo somewhat dilapidated
in Honolulu but thero is nb
reason why the boys shouldn't
wako up und do honor to tho,
examples set by tho old time-'
honored clubs of this community.
By tho way, tho four Holt boys
who now null in tho Loilnnio
challenge any other four brothers
to pull against thorn at any date
and at any plnco. Wo hops
that the challongo will bo taken
up but wo foar that the four
brothors will havo to wait until

editorial in yesterday's Advertiser
attacking Captain Palmer, as correspondent
of tho N. Y. Evoning

it is a case of tho "galled jado"
wincing, and from this point of
