Report of the Hoard of Foreign Missions Deals Largely With Massacres of Armenians. MOKE CHRISTIANS NOW Than There Were Before the Turkish Atrocities. Thirty Thousand of the Inhab itants Were Driven Out. Boston, Mass., Dec.14. The American board of foreig-n missions has made public its eighty-seventh annual report. The receipts from the New England states amounted to a total of ?3S6.484.12.

The total receipts from all sources were $642,781.07. The report deals at length with Turk ish massacres and says that while many Christians were killed or tied, the num ber of professed Christians exceeds that previous to the outrages. Tlie wounds left by massacres and robbery have been slowly healing though" in several places the suffering has been riuite as great as in the pre vious year. The penerous grifts that have come well nigh from every Eur opean state for the sufferers by massa cre and for 1 he rare of orphans are prraiefully acknowledged and have re vealed the essential unity of the civil ized world in a most impressive way. The report says: "The demand of indemnity from loss es incurred at Harpoot and Marasch, amounting to nil to SK'O.OOO was pressed as yet without result. The chanered conditions at Constantinople and the arrival of Dr. Ang-ell, the new United States minister may reasonably be ex pected to secure early and satisfactory action in repaid to this claim and all -tiler material questions at issue be tween our government and Turkey. The distribution of funds from all countries for the relief of suffering and the care of orphans. involved this year the hand ling of $sf.l.2SS. " The massacres in which at least 5, C00 Armenians were slaughtered in Con stantinople, were the result ostensibly of an attack on the Ottoman bank of the city by a band of revolutionists but in reality of the same fanaticism and race hatred which deluged the whole empire with blood the previous year. "When the sovereign spoke the word on the third day bloodshed ceased in stantly throughout the whole country. Criminals have received little or no punishment, but the Armenians were systematically imprisoned, employment denied them and threats h"ld over them until more than 3o.0o0 of their number within a few days tied from the city. In India during the famine food rose to abnormal prices. As a large number of the poor of India nearly one-third of ail her people live con stantly on the verge of starvation when prices are normal. is is easy to imagine the result of such times as these. Grain riots occurred in many places, starvation stared millions in the face and almost at once became an aw ful reality. "The plague, or bubonic fever, first came to public notice in Bombay. A panic seized the 2t.-0.000 inhabitants. Trains and steamers from the city, be came crowded with people fleeing to the country. The mortality of the city rose from 500 a week to 2. 000. The Christians in the city have been marvelously pre served. Among them only a few cases have occurred. No death from plague has taken place in Bombay church. Dr. Von Allen is building one of the finest hospital structures in southern India. "Native women have less and less fear of attending an European dispen sary and are almost as well represent ed as men. This has been by far the most fruitful year in the history of the south China mission. In the Foo Chow, China. mission within the last two years there has been an expansion of field and growth in churches, schools and hospital work, unparalleled in the his tory of our missions in China. "Thre are but five unordained mis sionaries in a field which includes 2 000, 000 souls for which this mission is con sidered responsible. The North China mission, located near the political cen ter of the empire giving access to more than 20.000.000 souls, ably manned and well established in seven wisely chosen centres, is one of the most important and promising under the cares of the board. In the Shansi mission. North western China, an opium refuge was opened early in the year, which has at tracted a large number of patients and has been nearly self-sustaining. "The problems which face the mis sionaries in Japan today are entirely different from those of 25 years ago. The educated Japanese are carefully studying the social and religious ques tions in which the scholars of the west are interested and always the begin nings of enlightment are subjects of doubt and questioning. "In Hawaii one great drawback to rapid progress is the backward condi tion of the Hawaiian churches. Too large a proportion of Hawaiian church members are not only ignorant of the fundamental requisites of personal re quirements but indifferent to the obli gation of common honesty in the regu lar payment of the promised salaries of their pastors. "In Spain the fact that the missionar ies are citizens of a country against which there is such strong feeiing grow ing out of the Cuban question, does not seem to be charged against them by the most of those with whom they come into daily contact and relations. That which perhaps more than any other one thing among the visible influences that prevail in the community has served as an obstacle to the spread of the gos pel in Spain has been the well known I and powerful ultramontane sympathies of the queen regent. This influence predominates entirely in the court and from there reaches the most distant vil lages and gives courage and strength to the reactionary movement throughout the land." STATE TREASURER CHECK. Hereafter Ha Will Have Something to Say About Investments of School Fund. The supreme court has sustained State Treasurer Heflebower in his refusal to sign warrants for the payment of $10.0X1 worth of Graham county bonds purchased by the state school fund commissioners. The decision establishes a new rule in the purchase of school bonds. The school fund commissioners have previously claimed that they were the sole judges of the merit and value of bonds to be purchased by the state school fund, and that the duties of the state treasurer were merely ministerial. The supreme court holds otherwise, and therefore the state treasurer will be per-, mitted to use his own judgment as to the worth of bonds or the security of an in vestment proposed by the commissioners.

The act of the legislature giving damages to persons assaulted or killed by mobs, was de clared unconstitutional by the circuit court today in the case of J. W. Cald well, against the county commission ers. Caldwell claimed $1,000 because he was injured by a mob during the Brown strike, and the act in question would have allowed him to collect it from the county. The act fixed the damages ar bitrarily at $500 for an assault, $1,000 for serious injury and $5,000 for death. The court declared that when a mart was injured, but not seriously ejiough to be entitled to $1,000 the act in effect made him a present of the difference between his just dues and $1,000. The legislature, the court said, would not authorize taxes for purposes of making; presents.
