The city is quiet. It Is evident that the
government has taken every precaution lo
prevent any lurlher disorder and to quell
any rioting should it occur in spile of

One or the precaution.! taken was the
posting of guards -around the Turkish

The police have not carried iw hob
threat to storm the Armenian patriarchate
il the refugees seeking sarety there did
not surrender. lu the 1'era church aiot
there are 300 Armenian rerugecs.
The Armenian college nt Galatea his
been closed owiug to the threats of Mo
hammedan theological students to attack
It. These students have taken a very
promlncbt part In the disturbances, and
it Is the- general opinion of the foreign
residents that the government needs to
keep a close watch upon them or they
will make further trouble.
AROUSED THE FANATICS.
The spirit of fanaticism among them has
been deeply arousal, and they indulge In
many threats ot what they will do to
the enemies of their faith.
A deputation of forty Armenians visited
the British embassy In order to appeal
to Sir riiilip Currle, the British ambassa
dor. Upon being informed that he had
gone to Tiierapla, the deputation with-
urew, expressing an lnienuon lo visit mm
at that place.
It Is learned from a reliable source that
more than a thousand Armenians have been
arrested aud cast Into prison on the charge
ot having been actively concerned In the
rioting or hnving instigated that trouble.
Although there have basn no furtherovert
acts of disorder, there Is a deep seated
feeling of unrest nnd anxiety everywhere
One significant fact Is that tho Turks
are pun haslug revolvers and cartridges.
An EnglWi dealer In firearms here says
that he has refused to sell revolvers to
at least fifty would be purchasers.
Durlug the rioting on Tuesday c-rowds
of Mohammedans took ndvantago of thi
great excitement to loot many Armenian
shops and offices. Their spoil is reported
to have been quite valuable.
TUIUMI'Il OP THE 1'OWERS.
The appointment of Kiampll I'asha as
Grand Vizier in succession to Said I'asha,
which was announced in these dispatches
jesterday, is generally considered as a,
triumph of the powers which have taken
npon themselves the responsibility of ob
taining reforms in the administrative meth
ods in Armenia.
The appointment laespeciallylooked upon
as a victory for blr l'hillp Cdrrlc, the
British ambassador, who, acting under
instructions irom his government! has
strenuously insMed upon the scheme of
reforms proposed by Great Dritaln, Ger
many and Uussia.
Late this afternoon the police were with

The- accident happened in a pcculiat

running northeast and southwest along
