London, Nov 30. Neither the assent of
the sultan to each of the powers having a
second guardshlp at Constantinople nor the
promulgation of paper reforms will quiet
the rising public wrath over tbe progress
of his policy of extermination directed
against tbe Christians of Asia Minor.
Tbe clamor for strong and decisive deal
ing with the sultan comes from .conserva
tives and liberals alike. The popular con
viction grows that Abdul Hamld is Jockey

clique to whom his obstinacies and du
plicity are attributed agree with but do not
The Speaker's Constantinople correspond
ent, who first directed attention to the Ar
menian outrages, bas since become a recog

He declares that he has ample evidence
that the sultan is personally responsible
for the whole series ot massacres. He ex
plains that the late outrages commenced as
soon as the sultan accepted the reforms ap
plying to" six vilayets, giving Christians
rights that depended on theirnumbers. The
massacres "have been chiefly confined to
these vilayets, the object being to so re
duce the number of Christians as to give
them no claim to any influence.
The work of extermination proceeds as
systematically as it Is possible for the
Turkish authorities to carry it on. Both
the Kurds and the troops are acting under
the orders of the authorities In their work
of pillage, rapine and murder.
The correspondent estimates that ten
thousands persons .were massacred be
tween November 18 and 25, while the
sultan was posing before Europe as being
desirous of effecting reforms, and as being
benevolently inclined "toward the Armen
ians. Commenting upon tbe matter fur

says that among the brutal murderers who
are engaged in wiping out Armenians there
is not one who is so brutal and criminal as
this wretch Abdul Hamld, whoso very
existence Is a reproach to humanity.

Of course, unless the right kind of men
