Bonfils and II. II. Tammen, proprietors

in their oillce at noon Saturday by V.

Washington, Jan. 14. Secretary
Boot has taken steps to institute at
once sweeping reforms in the judicial
system in Cuba, the animating pur
)osc being to correct as soon as pos
sible the Cuban prison abuses which
have already been the subject of rep
resentations to the war department.
To accomplish this purpose, the sec
retary has decided to appoint a com
mission comprised of three Americans
and equal number of Cubans.

MORE ARMENIAN MASSACRES.
Some Puirltlvci of 180S lie turn to
Tnrkcy nnil llloodnliod Speed
The reports havo come of the- renew
al of massacres of Armenians in the
Tillages of Ereroum, in Asia AUnor.
The district of Alashglrd, in which
they are said to havo taken place, is
near the Busslan frontier, and is. one
of thoso from which tho Arcmenian
inhabitants wero able to escape across
tho border at the timo of tho great
massacres in. 1895, and subsequently.
Until last spring tho Kussian govern
ment allowed tho fugitives tho hospi
tality of its territory among their fellow-countrymen
who wero delivered
from Turkish rule in 1878, but partly
on account of tho burden of their
maintenance and for political reasons,
Mr. Zinovclff, the Kussian ambassador
at Constantinople, was instructed to
press on tho Turkish government the
necessity for provision being mnde for
their return to their abandoned
homes. Tho Turkish government,
however, represented that the villages
and farms from which the Armenians
hud fled, had been occupied by Kurds
who refused to give them up to their
original owners, and whom it could
not expel by force, nnd that tho re
turn of tho Armenians after to long an
absence would infallibly rc3iilt in
Under tho circumstances tho Kus
sian government did not hi&fcY, on
the refugees leaving its territory, but
many drifted back and rejoined
those who had survived tho great mas
sacre of four years ago. lb is
possible that matters might havo
settled down but for tho action, of
some revolutionary Armenians who
crossed into Turkish territory during
the past, autumn, and in the fighting
that took place killed a number of
Kurds, themselves losing many of
their band. The massacre now re
ported to have taken place in tho
A lash gird district is declared by tho
Turkish authorities to have been in
revenge for tho killing of Kurds by
the Armenians in tho raid nlluded to.
Whatever the truth of the matter
may be, tho lot of the unfortunate Ar
menians in Asia AUnor, more particu
larly in tho Kurdish districts, is un
happy. They obtain no protection
from the government to which they
owe allegiance, and they are unwel
come in the Kussian territory whero
alone they can find sure refuge. Tho
European governmentsregarding them
as a disturbing clement in a part of
the world where they all desire to see
peace maintained, have long censed
to take any account of their griev
ances and complaints; and the r,ixty
first article of the treaty of Berlin
by which united Europe promised tho
Armenians an amelioration of their
condition lias long since become n
dead letter. These hist massacres,
therefore, receive only a passing no
tice. N. Y. Sun. .
Itcltiilvu to Hypocrisy.
Sir Algernon West in his "Recollec
tions" records tho rebuke given to
the Norwich Bible society by Lord
Orfprd. The sporting character of
that nobleman was well understood
and he himself was disgusted with
the incongruousness of the choice, as
the following extract from his reply
shows: "I have long been addicted to
the gaining table. I have lately taken
to the turf. T fear I frequently blas
pheme. But 1 have never distributed
religious tracts. All this was known
to you and your society, notwith
standing which you think me a lit
person to be your president. God for
give your hypocrisy." Chicago Time-Herald.
