KIDNAPPED BY NEGROES.
A Youns White Girl I" Itewcucd from
Iter Captor, but Not Until One of u
I'ONSO It Killed.
Fort Smith, Ark., Aug. 19. The
kidnapping of a young white girl and
the killing of one of a posse that
tried to rescue her are the crimes
charged against a party of eight
negroes fortified on Bruee's island,
10 miles west of this city. It is fear
ed their capture will lend to a bloody
encounter. The negroes ure said to
be well armed. A few days ago two
farmers, living near Wilson's Rock,
landed on Bruee's island in search of
plums nnd accidentally ran into a
camp in which there were two negro
men and a white girl about 12 years
old.
They made some inquiries ibout
the girl nnd the negroes said she
was the dnughter of a white man
who was traveling wiln them and who
hnd gone to Fort Smith for provis
ions. The negroes would not let the
girl take part in the conversation nnd
this aroused suspicion. A watch was
kept on the negroes for two days, but
no white man appeared. Monday af
ternoon a party of fnrmes decided
to investigate the ease and as they
nearcd the Island were fired on by
the negroes, and one of the party,
Roland by name, was killed.
A sharp fight was kept up for some
time, during which the girl escaped
from the negroes and ran to the
white men. She was so excited thnt
she could not give any intelligent ac
count of herself. She said, however,
that her father was not traveling
with the negroes, but that she had
been stolen from her home near Fort
Smith, I. T. 'She has been taken to
Muldrow.
Roland, the dend man, was a com
paratively stranger nt Wilson's Rock.

acres and is'densely covered with tim

Sofia, Bulgaria, Aug. 17. The Bul
garian government has presented a
memorandum to the powers setting
out at. great length the condition of
affairs during the past three months
in Macedonia since the Turkish gov
ernment undertook to inaugurate the
promised reforms. The most precise
details, dates, places and names of
persons nre given in the memoran
dum, the whole constituting a ter
rible category of murder, torture, In
cendiarism, pillage -and general op
pression committed by the Ottoman
soldiers and ofilcinls. These partic
ulars were obtained entiiwly from
official sources,
The memorandum begins by stat
ing that during the past three
mouths the Ottoman government has
taken n series of measures with the
alleged intention of inaugurating the
era of promised reform and of as
suring pence nnd tranquility to the
Bulgarian population of European
Turkey, but which have had the con
trary effect of further exasperating
this population and reviving the revo
lutionary movement. Instead of pro
ceeding solely against persons guilty
of branches of the public order, the
military nnd civil authorities have
sought every possible pretext to per
secute, terrorize and ruin the Bul
garian inhabitants, alike in the large
cities and in the small villages.
Wholesale massacres, individual
murders, the destruction of villages,
the pillaging and setting fire to
houses, the nrrests, ill-treatment, tor
tures, arbitrary imprisonment and
banishment, the closing nnd disorgan
izing of churches and schools, the
ruining of merchants, the collection
of taxes for many years in advance
such, says the memorandum, are
among the nets of the Ottoman ad
ministration of the vilnyets of Sa
lonica, Monastir, Uskub and Ad
rinnoplc. The memorandum next relates in
detail a number of such cases in each
vilayet. Beginning with the vilnyet
of Salontea, it states that in the town
of Saloniea the Bulgarian professors
of the university, the students nnd
shopkeepers, in fact all the intelli
gent Bulgarians in the city, have
been cast into prison. One hundred
and twenty soldiurs entered the vil
lage of Gormi-Ribnitza May 19 and
tortured to death five men and two
women. During the first three weeks
of July 25 villages in the district of
Tikveseh were subjected to the depre
dation of the Turkish soldiers nnd
Bashi Bnzouks. Thi villagers were
beaten and tortured, the women vio
lated and the houses plundered while
the authorities looked on.
In the vilayet of Monastir artillery
bombarded nnd razed the flourishing
town of Smerdesch, the 300 houses
being left a heap of ruins. At the be
ginning of July two Greek bands,
with the connivance of the authori
ties, pillaged Bulgarian villages and
murdered ninny of the inhabitants.
In the districts of Palanka, Kos
chanla, Koumnnovo and Gostigar, the
prisons are filled with Bulgarian
priests, schoolmasters and mer
chants, During June, the soldiers
and Bashi Bazouks terrorized the in
habitants of the Schtif district, tor
turing the people with red-hot irons.
Altogether, the memorandum gives
particulars of 131 cases of excesses
and outrages committed by the Turk
ish authorities. In summarizing the
specific details of the outrages men
tioned, the memorandum declares
that wholesale massacres were per
petrated by regulars and Bashi Bnz
ouks in the totvn of Saloniea and the
vllllnges of Baldevo, Banitzn, Tchouri
lovo, Knrbinzn, Moghila, Smerdesch
and Enidje, where the scenes of car
nage, pillage and incendiurism were
everywhere terrible.

cials here affect ignorance of the
news thnt Russia is sending a squad
ron to Turkish waters.
The Ottoman gove'rnment has con
cluded negotiations with the Krupp
works for the supply of 32 batteries

six guns.
Rome, Aug. 17. Reports from Bul
garian sources received here say that
the insurrection in the Balkans Is
spreading and daily gaining ground.
Sofia, Bulgaria, Aug. 10, A reign of
terror is reported to prevail tit Us
kub, where the Christian inhabitants
nre afraid to leave their houses. The
villi has issued the strictest orders to
the Mussulman population to remain
quiet and not molest their Christian
neighbors, but the Mussulmans, meet
ing in the mosques, have resolved at
a given signal to massacre the whole
Christian population, immediately
the first insurgent band appears near
Uskub, or on any other pretext.
The Christians arc terrorized. The
Turkish troops, who nre their only
protection, do not show the slightest
disposition to aid them.
A fierce battle is reported to have
occurred in the neighborhood of Mon
astir., Three Turkish battalions at
tacked 1,000 insurgents nnd after the
fight had raged for six hours the
Turks were repulsed with the loss of
210 men killed or wounded. The in
surgent loss is not given.

Sllcht Accident Occurs During tlic
maneuver.
Oyster Bny, N. Y., Aug. 18. For the
first time In the history of the coun
try tho president of the United States
reviewed and inspected, in time of
pence, u great fleet of United States
warships. The ceremony was-a mag
nificent nnd impressive naval spec
tacle. It was unmarred by the slight
est mishap until just at its conclu
sion, when the torpedo boat de
stroyer Barry rammed the destroyer
Decatur, fortunately doing little
damage.
The Incident was exciting. It oc
curred just ut the moment when tho
president was receiving congratula
tions upon the success 'of the man
euvers. The first squadron of destroyers,
consisting of the Decatur, Balnbridge,
Barry, Dale and Cluuinoey, all un
der command of Lieut. L. 11. Chand
ler, was approaching the Mayflower
at full speed. The vessels were In
close formation.
Orders were signalled from the
Decatur to the other vessels to form
a wedge. In executing the orders,
the Decatur swung across the bow of
the Barry. An Instant later the Barry
rammed her on the starboard side.
As the ships were running at a speed
of 20 knots, the blow was tremendous.
The Mayflower's boats were man
ned instantly, but were not needed,
as the Decatur was seen to right her
self. In a few minutes, she hoisted
a signal of "No serious damage."
Admiral Dewey ordered Lieut.
Chandler to proceed with the live
vessels to the Brooklyn navy yard,
where such repairs as may be neces
sary could be made quickly. After
the damage has been repaired, the
squadron will rejoin the fleet and
continue the maneuvers.
The review occurred on Long
Island sound, two miles and .n hnlf
oft the entrance to Oyster bay.
President Roosevelt in company with
Secretary of the Navy Moody, Ad
miral Dewey, Rear Admiral Taylor,
Rear 'Admiral Rodgers, Cnpt. Brown
son, Gen. Chnffce ami Gen. Harry,
stood on the bridge of the Mayflower,
ns she steamed slowly down one col
umn of the warships and up tho
other. The two columns extended
2,500 yards, the ships being anchored
tit intervals of 500 yards.
As the Mayflower passed each ship
in the two columns, the yards and
rails of each were manned by jackies
in white duck, the marines wero
paraded and presented amis, the
buglers sounded a flourish, the drum
mers gave four nifties, the band play
ed "Hail Columbia" and the entire
crew stood at salute. As the May
flower swept majestically past each
ship, the crew of the saluting vessel
gave the president three cljcers as
the commander-in-chief of the army
and navy of the United States.
