Outbreak at Marash What the Mission
aries Say Powera Likely to Steam Up
the Dardanelles with Shotted Guns.
Losdos, Nov. 27. The Times this morn
ing publishes a letter written at Erzeronm
dated Nov. 9. Tho correspondent says:
"The massacre here certainly occurred by
order of tho authorities, and this order
must have emanated otiginally from the
central authorities at Constantinople,
Much circumstantial evidence can be pro
duced to corrobonYte this statement." The
correspondent thon proceeds to repeat a
conversation which ho overheard going on
between the Turkish soldiers who wero
guarding his door. Their statements wero
to the effect that their officers had ordered
them at a given signal to masszcre the
Armenians. The correspondent then con
tinues: Cannot Find a Single Christian.
"I had been visiting at the British cod
sulate with Mr. Chambers Sunday ofter
ooon, Nov. 3, when the new outbreak took
place. The Armenians again crowded to
tho American school. A number were
killed on this day, tho estimate ranging
from eighteen to thirty-five. Tho scenes
in the cemeteries wherc tho victims havo
bicn buried by the sufferers have been
heartrending. On Nov. 7 I visited all of
ths ruined bazaars, going as fartas Serai,
but during the entire journey Idid not see
a single Christinn."
Another dispatch from Constantinople
says: Details havo been received here re

most horrible nature, Tho missionaries
declare that hundreds of people were killed
and that all the school buildings were

A dispatch from Constantinople Tia
Soda, jbulgari.-v says with reference to
the request of the powers to tho porte for a
firman admitting additional gunboats
into the Bosphnrus, which the porte is still
haggling over: "Nobody hero can
see how the powers can retreat from tho
position they havo assumed without
serious loss of prestige, especially as their
demands arc based on treaty rights which
are admitted by tho sultan and his ad
visers. In some quarters it is said that
tho sultan's, ohji-ction to granting the
firman is really caused by his belief that
ha can do sr with impunity in view of the
objection raised by Russia to Austria's
proposal on the subject, nnd thnt this con
stituted a difference of opinion among the

"A member of tho diplomatic corps to
whom this view of tho affair was sub
mitted said that if tho sultan actually
thought there wasnny material differencjs
of opinion among tho powers he woul.1 do
well to gi t rid of that belief as soon as pos
sible. In fact tho accord between tho
powers is declared to bo complete, and no

end of tho Mediterranean steaming up tho
