CONSTANTINOFLE, September 1.? Tho
Porte has notlfled Mlnlirtcr Lolshmnn that
flve arrosts havo been mado nt Belrut In
connoctlon wlth the shootlng whlch led
to the report that William C. Magelssen,
tho Unlted States,vlce and deputy consul
there, had been nssasslnated.
The Turkish offlclals contlnue to Inslst
that no attempt waa mado on tho vlce
consul's Me,- and thoy reasscrt that the
whole story orlglnated In a foud'Jole nrcd
on tho occibIoii ot a natlvo marriage,
nnd ln accordance wlth custom.
Mr. Lelshman, however, rofuses to ac
cept such an explanation without con
clualve proof. The Judlclal Investigation
Tho attompt to burn tho Amerlcan coi
lege at Kharput occurred flvo weeks ago,
and apparontly wns tho work of an Indl?
vldual who constdored he had a grlevanco
agalnst the collegc authorltles. When Mr.
Lelshman was Informed of tho attempt
ho demanded that the Porte protect the
Amerlcan lntitltution, and In consequence
of hls represcntatlons lnstructlons wero
sent to tho authorltles nt Kharput to try
in the regular courts tho charges agalnst
flfty Armenlans accused of trafllcklng In
arms and engaging- ln othor eedltoua
acts. Among the accused ls Profeteor
Tenekedjlan, of the Amerlcan College,
whoso treatment ln prlson pendlng hla
trial was also ordered to bo lmproved.
PRESSES FOR SETTLEMENT.
Mr. Lelshman ls presslng for a deflnlte
settlemont of a number ot matters on
whlch agreements wero reached wlth the
Turkish authorltles latt yoar, and whlch,
In eplte of froquent promlses on the part
of the Porte, have never been exocuted.
For Instance a naturallzed Amerlcan Is
stlll ln prlson at Tripoll, Syrla, although
the Porte has frequently Informed Mr.
Lelshman that the authorltles at Belrut,
-who havo Jurlsdlctlon'over Tripoll, had
heen ordered to llberato hlm.
The Amerlcan offlclals hora attrlbuto
tho dlspatch of tho warshlps to TurkU-i
waters not solely to tho Magolessen of
falr, but to the general dlssatlsfaction of
the authorltles at Washlngton at the non
fulflllment of the Porto's promlses ln re
gard to pendlng questions, and to tho
determination of iPres.dent Roosevelt to
show Turkey that ahe cannot trlfle wlth
Amerlcan representattons. Dlplomatlc
clrcles here generally approvo of the ener
getlo actlon of the Unlted States, whlch,
lt ls polntad out, ls amply Justlfled by the
bad falth of Turkey, and It ls felt hero
that the appearance of tho Unlted States
warshlps ln Turkish waters will lead to
the immedlate settlement of tho pendlng
dlsputet\ Nothlng so ImpreBses the Porto
as a naval demonstratlon.

It Is lcarned to-day that practfcally the

somo hltch ln the arrangements, or mla
undorstandlng, though the otflolals had
promlsod the man'agemont of the ahov
that the band's services could be oto
tnlned. It was feared'that only a very

Martln, who was Iri'ttuV clty to-day on
business, Interested hlmself tn the matter,
and after a. ivislt to Goneral Heywood,
general commandrng tho Marlne Corps,
and tho Secretary of the Navy, recelved
assurances/ that forty members of the
band, hended hy Lieutenant Sautelman,
the leader, would be at the show to make
muslc that hns glven tho Marlne Band
