Out u Statement.
Washington, Jun. 9. Tho Turkish
legation gives out the following com
munication: "It is indeed strange to observo tho
unwillingness on the part of some
newspapers to wait and see what the
Sassoun troubles really were and who
was actually responsible for them. The
sublime porte has tukou all the precau
tionary measures necessitated by the
case, and thero can not posHibly remain
any reasonable doubt, if not, perhaps,
in tho minds of revolutionists and their
friends, that the uppoiuted commission
to investigate this affair will bring
ubout f auts as they are in reality. The
assertions already niudo by ieople con
nected with the revolt iu 'i'urkoy are so
numerous and so shockingly erroneous
that it is truly impossible to unBwer
"it is not true that tho governor of
Bitlis recruited soldiers, amongst tho
Kurds. It is not truo that women and
children wore massacred. On the con
trary they wero protected by the sol
diery, as it was tho case, for instance,
with tho women near Ku Ruzart. All
cattle wero also restored to their owners
in conformity with strict orders from
tho Bitlis authorities. The assertion
made that six villuges wero burnt is
simply preposterous, as no six villages
are Jo bo found round about tho place
where the revolt first broke out. In
that region thero aro no more than 10
villages, some of which were set on fire
by tho revolutionists themselves, who
acted exactly according to Rev. Cyrus
Hamlin's prophetic statement of the 23d
of December, 181)3:
"The Armenian (Huntclmguist) bunds,
organized all over the empire, will watch
their opportunities to kill Turks and
Kurds, set firo to their villuges and then
make their escape into the mountains,
"It is not true, either, that garments
of priests and objects bolongiug to
churches were publicly sold at Monsh.
In order to f urthor show tho efforts of
the revolutionary Armenian party in
fomenting troubles in Turkey, suffice it
to reproduce tho following letter that
the Armenian nowspapor, Trochaic,
which is published iu London, inva
riably gives its emissaries of sedition
"Ho who wljl present this paper is sent
on the part of the staff of Trochak and is
worthy or full commence, we oeg you to
assist him in case of need.

center a hand holding a flag crossed by
a dagger, with a red cap and a pen."

of one of their attorneys, on account of
the crowded conditiou of the Cook

of tho United States grants a writ of
habeas corpus, which tho defendants
will ask for noxt week, Mr. Debs will
continue here for six and tho others for
three mouths. Last evening Dobs issued
this manifesto to tho American people:
In going to jail far participation in tho
late hti ike we have no upoligoes to make
nor regrets to express. No ignominy at
taches to us on account of this sentence.
Candor compels me to characterize the
whole proceedings as infamous. It is not
caiculuted to revive tho rapidly failing con
fidence of the American "jeople in the
federal judiciary. There is not a scrap of
testimony to show that one of iw violated
any law whatsoever. And if we are guilty
of conspiiacy, why are we pumshud for
contempt? This question will continue to
be asked with ever increasing emphasis,
I would u thousand limes rather be ac
countable for the strike than for the de
cision. The ridicule of the press that, we are
posing as martyrs will not deceive tliu peo
ple. We all have homes and loved ones,
and none of us ure here by choice We
simply abide by tuo arbitrary action of the
courts. There is a higher power yet to he
heard from. No corporation will inilu
euce its decision. Our cause is that of
conscientious liberty, and wo have an
abiding f tilth in tlieAinerican people. Wo
accept our lot with becoming patience and
composure. We can uilord to wait.
So fur as I am concerned, I feel that
when all the circumstances are considered
it would only have been disgraceful if we
had so ucquitted ourselves as to have kept
out of jail. Our enemies are entitled to
till the comfort they can extract from our
imprisonment, and our friends have no
Questions of great und grave Import are
up for decision. Great principles involv
ing the liberty of the citizen are at -tuke
Out of all this, good will come.
There is one fundamental, bed-rock prin
ciple that the'Americuu people will never
suffer to be sacrificed. It may be men
aced, as it now u, but when the iigh
court, "We, the people," have passed Jinal
judgments, its enthronement will be li.ed
and .secure for all time.
We are by tho mere instrumentalities

Proceeding to tho chamber, tho crowd

their determination, the crowd set to

work of destruction, but tho officers
fared badly iu the scuffle that followed,

however, was barren of result, for,

In tho meantime tho police forco
brought reinforcoments, but before thoy

tho crowd again visited tho governor
and mado another appeal to him, but
this was also ineffectual. Thou thoy

this time thoy wero unuble to force an
