Washington, A piil 8. The United
States bas taken vigorous action in regard ;
to the outrages on American citizens at '
Marzovan, in the Turkish dominions, and
the violation of the mails of the United
States legation. The facts of the case are
as follows: On the 10th of January last a
number of seditious placards were distrib
uted throughout the region of Marzovan
and Csesarea, in the center of Asia Minor.
On account of alleged seditious movements
existing anions the Armenians the Turk
ish authorities ascribed the authorship of
these placards to the students of Anatoba
college, an American educational institu- '
tion at Marzovan. 1
Fired a Girls' Seminary.
On the night of the 2nd of February the
girls' seminary of this institution was fired
and burned to the ground. There was '
strong circumstantial evidence to show
that this was done with the full knowl
edge if not by the direct act of the Turkish
officials. The condition of the Americans
in that place became so critical that United
States Consul Milo A. Jewett was dis
patched thither from Sivas, and the Amer
icans in that district have been under his
protection ever since. Dispatches passing .
between Minister Thompson and Consul
Jewett at Marzovan have been repeatedly
violated and formal complaint of this fact
has been made by the American minister
to the sublime porte.
The Tnrk Makes Counter Demands.
Demands for redress made to the Turk
ish authorities were met by counter
demands on their side that the alleged se
ditious movement of the American stu
dents should first be investigated and de
termined upon before any efforts were
made to discover the perpetrators of the
outrages complained of. Secretary
Gresham has cabled to Minister Thompson
at Constantinople a strong expression of
the president's views on the outrages and
demanding not only prompt reparation for
the burned seminary but the punishment
of all parties found guilty in the matter.
Instructions to Minister Thompson.
Minister Thompson is instructed that no
alleged prior acts of students are to affect
the rights of this government in the prem
ises. Minister Thompson is charged to
give renewed attention to the matter and
to dispatch a special messenger, if neces
sary, to Consul Jewett and see to the in
violability of the correspondence. The min
ister is to net promptly and advise the de
partment by cable. Xo effort is to be re
laxed in securing the legal rights of our
citizens in Turkey. It is understood to be
the policy of the United States to make

POPULAR ELECTION OF SENATORS.
The Massachusetts Statesman Makes a
Point on Palmer.
Washington. April 8. Hoar continued
in the senate yesterday the speech he
began Thursday in opposition to the propo
sition to elect senators by popular vote.
Taking as an example the state of Mass
achusetts and the distinguished men who
have represented her in the senate of the
United States, Hoar said that he was not
ashamed to invite comparison with any
lines of dukes, princes, barons, emperors
or popes who have filled seats in legisla
tures or have occupied the executive chair
in any commonwealth, whether they heid
their title by virtue of noble descent or
royal favor or the favor of the
people themselves. He did not believe
that the people of Massachusetts (and the
same might be said as to any other Ameri
can state) would acccept the proposed
change of the method of choosing senators
an invitation which depended not only on
the claim that state legislatures were unfit
to be trusted with that duty (one of the
chiefest functions of sovereignity), but that
the senate of the United State had been on
the whole a failure.
Attack on the "Vox Popull" Idea.
He did not believe that the people of
Massachusetts were quite ready to discred
it their own "general court," with its 250
years of legislative history and to give its
confidence instead to a political convention,
whose members are without an oath of
office, without a record, without any legal
restrain, and who had no accountability to
their representative He did not believe
that they were quite prepared to say that
on the whole they were ashamed of the
senators who had for 100 years represent
ed them in the great national council. The
notion that popular suffrage was always to
be deified and that the people had all wis
dom and all honesty was a poor, cheap.
flattery of the people.
For Instance There's Palmer.
Hoar then turned bis attention to the
argument of Palmer in favor of the pro
posed amendment; recalled the names of
the men whom the state of Illinois has sent
to the senate Douglass, Shields, Davis,
Logan and Cullom and asked whether
popular elections would have improved
upon these men. There remained to be
considered. Hoar said, the senator himself
(Palmer) from whose autobiography he
quoted this sentence, "After a career of
brilliant civil and military service, and
after having been tried for four years in
the office of governor, to which he was
elected by the people, he was nominated as
governor again in lbsS." And that un
grateful people Hoar continued defeated
him by a majority of i&.OOO on the great
popular vote. And then he was elected to
the senate by the legislature!
Summary of Senate Proceedings.
Washington, April 8. The speech be
gun by Hoar Thursday in the senate
against the proposed constitutional amend
ment for the popular election of senators
of the United States was concluded by him
yesterday. A resolution was offered by
Voorhees and referred to the committee on
interstate commerce, instructing that com
mittee to inquire into the subject of the re
cent judicial decisions at Toledo, O., as to
the rights and duties of. "rail road employes,
and to report whatever legislation may be
necessary to protect the natural and in
alienable rights of working people.

Thursday evening at this station by the

trunks of a newly married couple from'

merriment, On the handles there were no
less than six pairs of old shoes and a pro

Too missful to Be Troubled.
In red, yellow and green chalk the fol
lowing inscriptions were to be seen all over
the trunk: "Ducky and his darling."
"We're happy; just married.? On the bot
