Constantinople, Nov. 20.?A. dls~
patch received here from Tlflls,Russian
Trans-Cacoasia.savB that the Armenian
Catholicos has received a reply to the
communication which he recently sent
to the Russian ambassador here, M. Do
Nilldoff. It i* as follow?: The Ar?
menians cf Constantinople are now re
asBured. Thny are threatened with no
danger. In the provinces, however,
thorn are regretablo conflicts which, in
most cases, were caused by tbe Ar?
menians, who wrre Instigated by their
revolutionary committees Tho result
)b torrlblo revenge on the part of the
Turks in the shape of horrible massacres
The sultan haa sanctioned tho rchemo
for reforms submitted by the tbreo great
powers and preparations are now pro?
ceeding to carry them out. To this end
It is necessary that the leaders of the
people should perouade the latter to
dosist from revolutionary attempts, to
abandon the Idle hope of forfi?n inter?
vention, to put a f- top to all disturhancPB
and to co opt rate in tho rc-rstabllsb
ment of universal poaco, In improving
the situation and in the introduction of
tho new order of things.
Ab intimated in theBe dispatches dur?
ing the last few days, tho attitude of
tho porto, or of the Bultan, has under
cone a decided chango stneo the other

tbe naval demonstration In Salonica
bay. Thore Is no doubt that the
pressure brought to boar upon the sul?
tan haa been strong enough to make
him take personal charge of tho work of
reform in Armandat, and it is now
hoped that there will be no further
bloodshed except in tbe case of putting
down tho Insurrections which havo
broken out against tho Turkish rulo in
different parts of Asia Minor.
It. !n hoped, however, that tbe Arme?
nian clergy will bn ablo to iniuco their
co-rpllplonisti to lay down their arms,
especially as the sentiment of tbe whole
of Europe Is now in favor of tho oultan,
whose evident desire to meet tbe views
of the powers is thoroughly appreciated
and has undoubtedly tided over a most
difllcult crisis in the Bast.
Two Children Horned to Heath.
Chattanooga, Tenn., Nov. 20.?A
special from South Pittsburg, Tenn., to
the Chattanooga News says: Early this

Irving Robinson, a respectable colored
laborer, was destroyed by fire. Two of
Robinson's children, aged 1 and 4 years,
respectively, were burned to death,
Robinson and hin wife being absent at
the time. Much indignation exists
against the npgroeB living near, who
stood by and saw the children burn to
death without making any effort to save
them. Their brutal conduct, it is aald,
wus prompted by jealousy of Robinson's

last hope that remained to Harry Hay

when the supreme court this m rnlng
banded down a long opinion affirming
the action of the lower court in deny?
ing him a new trial. Harry Hayward
turned pale when tbe decision was
announced to him, but would say noth?

expected." He is apparently without
hope. County Attorney Nye. to whom
Governor Clough has referred the fixing
of the date of execution, will name De?

SENATOR 8DERUAN TALKS.
Ho Hecomes Reminiscent Over Old Issnes
aod Orltlctses the DemooitM of To-day.
Nkw York, Nov. 20.?Senator John
Sherman, of Ohio, talked freely to a re?
porter to-day 1q regard to his recently
published book and other matters. The
Senator stated that he had met ex
President Harrison and Warner Miller
and had bad pleasant chats with them.
He added that Mr. Miller came to his
(the Senator's) room last evening and
they talked over many of the incidents
of the convention of 18S8. Mr. Miller's
recollection of events tallied with the
"The New York delegation," added the
Senator, "had a banquet on Saturday
night before the nomination of 1888, and
after Senator Miller had made a speech
they all agreed to support me. I re~
ceived a telegram to that effect. Sun?
day intervened, and, in the meantime,
Elkins and other triends of Harrison got
Mr. Platt to agree to vote for him on the
first ballot Monday. The result is
"I have no charges to make against
ex-President Harrison and our relations
are pleasant. Whatever bargains or
promises his friends might have made,
he did not sanction them, because he
absolutely refused to appoint Mr Platt
Secretary of the Treasury. The acme
of Mr. Platt's ambition seems to bo to
hold the portfolio of Secretary of the
In regard to the national convention
of 1880, when (toll- Id was nominated,
be said that when no saw that the drift
w&b for Garfleld be telegraphed to his
friends to swing the Ohio delegation for
him. "Girfleld was an able and bril?
liant man In build respects," be con?
tinued, "hut he did not nave strong will
power. He permitted men of stronger
will-force to influence him "
"I well renumber that after he was
elected President and had selected Mr.
Blaino as Secretary of State he came to
me and Bald that he would .iko to ap?
point mo Seoretary of the Treasury,
but Mr. Blalno thought It would be em?
barrassing to other members of Mr.
Hayes' cabinet to select one member and
not tako them all.
The Senator laughed at the nophlstry
of Mr. Garfleld and continued: "I in-*
formed him that I did not d' sire to bo
appointed Secretary of tho Treasury and
announced my intention to btcome a
candidate for the Senate "
The Senator 6ald he considered War?
ner Miller a strong man und remarked
that he had made an able Senator. He
then turned hid attention to Secretary
The basic error of tho speech, he
maintained, was the Secretary's Idea
that legal tenders could be done away
with entirely. It could not bo donp,
11 * Bald this In substanoe: "The great
mistake ?sas In tho wav ?he Democratic
admlni it ration had tampered vihh tho

short bonds of five yeari-, duration,
which tne fooplu here would have
taken up quioa-ly at 3 per cont., and
with this pud too expenses of the gov?
ernment instead of intrenching on the
"These Bbort bonds, of course, would
havo been paid fi r in It gal tender no<os
Instead of doing this, the administra?
tion had permitted domestic and foreign
bankers to clear 811.000.000 by selling
bonds for gold at 4 p >r cent. Carlisle's
plan, proposed la:it night, was Imprac?
ticable. Tmro are 3.000 national banks,
and It would not do, in order to havo
currency, to take the gold out of tbe
United S'ates Treasury and matter It
around In theBe banks to redeem money
that had been issued by theso hanks."
The Sonator said be did not know
when tbe Republicans would bo able to
organize the Senate. When it came to
an issuo in regard to money he thought
tho East would be against tho West,
irrespective, of party. As long as Cleve?
land was President, he said, there would
be no ttlver legislation, becauso he
favored sound money.

to-day said: "I have not examined th^

"The provision for ?mng eao'i rosd
which may break the agreement ind
using trie fine for the bonefit of the

earninga. The President, the attorney
Penoral and Chairman Morrison can
easily defeat tbe agreement by procur?

under both the antl-truHt and nntl pool?
