WAAiraOTO.v, April 6. The United
States has taken rigorous action in re
gard to the outrages on American citi
zens at Marsovar, In Hie Turkish do
minions, and the violation of the malls
of the United States legation. The
facts of the caso aro as follows: On
January 10 last a number of seditious
placards were distributed throughout
the region of Marsorar and Ciusarea, In
the center of Asia Minor. On account
of alleged seditious movements existing
among tha Armenians the Turk
ish authorities ascribed the authorship
of theso placards to tho students
of Anatoba college, an American edu
cational Institution at Marsovnr. On
the night of February 3 the girls' sem
inary of this Institution was flroil and
burned to the ground. Thero was
strong circumstantial evldenco to show
that this was done with the full knowl
edge If not by dlroct act of tho Turkish
ofllclals. Demands for redress made to
tho Turkish authorities were met by
counter demands on their stdo that tha
alleged seditious movements of tho
American students should first bo in
vestigated and determined upon before
any efforts were raado to discover tho
perpetrators of the outrages complained
Secretary Greshnm has cabled to tho
minister tit Constantinople a strong ex
pression of tho president's views on
tho outrage, and demanding not only
frompt reparation for the burned sent
nary, but the punishment of all parties
found guilty In tho matter. Minister
Thompson is Instructed that no al
leged prior acts of students aro to
affect tho rights of this government In
the premises. Mc. is charged to give
renewed attention to tho matter, and
to dispatch a special messenger if
necessary to Consul Jewett and seo to
tho inviolability of tho official corre
spondence. Tho minister Is to act
promptly and advlso thodepurtment by
cable, No effort is to bo relaxed In
securing tho legal rights of American
citizens in Turkoy.
Xt Is understood to bo tho policy of
the United States to make this Mar
sovar incident n test case In Its rela
tions with Turkey. There are at pres
ent mora than 00 American citizens
residing in the Turkish empire who
have the management, of property to
tho value of over ti.DOO.OOO. " Further
advices from Mr. Thompson are looked

Using tho latter as n sort of a rostrum,
he glared straight at tho girl and be
gan to rave, Ignoring mo entirely.
"Well, madam" (In a tone of concen
trated fury), "whot do you mean by
this disgraceful escapade?"

on as calmly ns possible. "Your pres

"rlcandnl, sir. What could bo more
scandalous than the present stato of
affairs?" ho crlod.
Things went nn this way for ton min
utes, until tho old man howled himself
hoarse, ami I could hear tho bell boys
tittering In the hall outside. Then ha
gradually calinod down, and ns a lost
resort tried tha sympntlictla dixlgo nn
tha terrified young woman. Tho lat
ter had hardly spoken a word through
out tho 'sccno. Mho was too badly
frightened, I think.
There ware tears In the old gentle
man's voice as ho turned tnwnrd my
supposed wife. Hod she not always
been well treated?' Was not her math-

Was not her homo ono of luxury? etc.,

"i:h, whutl adding Insult to Injury!"
ho ronred, "Well, I'll leava you hero

me, sir," shaking the cano In my
face. "I'm not tho man to submit
tamely to a rascally nbdiiclloii of this
churactcr. You're n scoundrel, sir, a
scoundrel," reiterated my nngolla father-in-law;
nnd with this choice part
ing shot lia retired, slamming tho door
"How did I mnnngo It?" I Inquired,
turning to where tho future Mrs. Tre

to nil appearances, nnd thon whon tho
danger was over, sho must spoil It all
by mi exhibition of tvonkness. I rushed
to the water, poured n glass of It out
and approached tho young woman.
Hho was recovering, though, before I
reached her, and In an Instant sat up.
"How can I ever repay you? ' sho
asked. "You did It superbly, and
