Turkish Troops Sent to Rescue
V&Ii at Adana Blamed for Outrages
Loot Recovered by Authorities Not
Returned to Owners?Women and
Children Made Slaves.
MERSINA, Asiatic Turkey, April 29.?
Two battalions of Turkish troops ar
rived here today.
It is understood that a strong: de
tachment will at once be sent up coun
try to Hadjin to effect the relief of the
American women missionaries there,
who for nearly a fortnight have been
besieged in their mission house by a
horde of fanatical Mohammedan tribes
men from the surrounding country.
Two Turkish regiments which landed
here Saturday have proceeded to Adana,
where the massacres of Christians be
gan April 14 and were resumed late
Tuesday night with the wholesale mur
der of Armenians and the burning of
their property.
Thousands of Armenians were burned
alive, those attempting to escape being
shot down by the troops. The destruc
tion of Adana was completed.
The loss of life in the whole province
of Adana is estimated at 30,000. The
material losses of Europeans are enor
British and other foreign warships
here are inactive.
In the town of Hadjin lfi.OOO people,
thousands of them Armenians and three
of them American women, are besieged
by Moslem troops and irregulars.
The four Germans previously report
ed killed at Bukdjeh have arrived at
Mersina safely. The Armenian popula
tion of that town perished.
Blame Put on Abdul Hamid.
VIENNA, April 20.?It is> reported that
the committee of union and progress in
tends to publish full particulars of the
massacres in Asia Minor, for the pur
pose of proving that they were instig
nated by Abdul Hamid in order to dis
credit the Young Turks rule and provoke
foreign intervention.
A dispatch from Constantinople gives
a report that Kiamil-Pasha, former grand
vizier has been arrested.
ERZERl'M. Turkish Armenia, April 20.
?The garrison here, which showed signs
of disaffection a lew days ago, has
changed its attitude on learning of the
deposition of Abdul Hamid and the ap
pointment of the new saltan, and now is
Vali Incited Adana Outrages.
ADANA, Asiatic Turkey, Saturday,
April 24.?Emergency hospitals establish
ed here contain HuO patients suffering
from wounds, many of whom are women.
The average number of wounds to each
patient is four.
There is great and immediate need
for food and medical supplies. Practical
ly the entire Armenian population of
Adana, 15.000 people, is homeless, with
out bedding or clothing, and the food
supplies In the shops are exhausted.
Some wounded Armenian women have
told Miss Wallace, an English nurse, who
Is caring for them, that they were shot
by the Moslems because they screamed
when they saw their husbands killed be
fore their eyes. Many Armenian girls
were carried off by the Turks as booty.
A large number of mutilated bodies have
been found In the houses of the city.
During the first five days of the dis
orders while fighting, killing and plunder
ing was in progress on all sides, the vali
of Adana kept the Turkish troops in gov
ernment house day and night under or
ders. On the sixth day he ordered them
to put a stop to the fighting, which could
have been done on the first day.
Stephen Trowbridge, an American mis
sionary, said today:
One man is responsible for the disor
ders here, the vali himself. lie had it in
his power to suppress lawlessness and
massacre, but deliberately refrained from
doing so. He said simply: 'We are not
Turks Regret Situation.
"The better cass of Turks in Adana,"
Mr. Trowbridge continued, "members of
the committee of union and progress, are
deeply grieved and saddened at these
dreadful events. Some of them are ready
to join us in relief work for the Armen
"One bey already has opened his house
to refugees."
The American missionaries allowed no
armed Armenians to enter the mission
premises. They confiscated all weapons
at the entrances to their houses. During
the four days not a single shot was fired
from the mission buildings. .
Immunity was secured for the Arme
nians who had taken shelter with the
Americans upon .condition ttiat they would
give up all their arms. This stipulation
was strictly carried out.
The only shots fired from the mission
premises were by soldiers, who. toward
the end of the five days of fighting, fired
from the mission grounds and the roof of
the servants' quarters upon the rioters.
The soldiers explained that this was
partly "to communicate with the other
soldiers firing from the minarets."
The missionaries have picked four Mau
ser bullets from the walls of the girls'
school. Few civilians had Mausers.
The nuns in a building opposite the
school saw an Afghan throwing masses
of burning wool soaked in kerosene into
the Krounds of th^, American girls' school
and at once gave the alarm. It took the
missionaries five hours of hard work to
put out this fire.
It is probable that the best elements of
Adana will demand the execution of the
"William Chambers, an American mis
sionary, is caring for 700 refugees in his
house and on his grounds.
One of the most threatening features of
miVv. ,'tuation today is the garbage and
filth in the streets, which have not been
cleaned for a week. There is not enough
water for drinking purposes or to dress
the wounds of the injured.
The local authorities have rescued much
plunder from the looters. None of it has
been returned to the owners. There are
great piles of loot in government house.
. Scenes of great brutality occurred in
the neighboring towns of Bagliche Os
manieh and Ilamidieh. In addition to
killing the men. the Moslems carried off
women and children for slaves.
Test Jewelry With Acid, Throwing
Away Plated Ware.
CHICAGO, April 20.?The jewelry store
of John S. Townsend, just south of the
Loop district, has been robbed of arti
cles valued at *4,000 by burglars, who
tested their plunder with acid before
taking it away. Plated lockets, charms
and watch chains valued at *1.000, ruined
by the test, were found strewn about
the floor.
Several thousand dollars' worth of dia
monds were locked in two safes equipped
with electric burglar alarms. The fact
that no effort was made to tamper with
these safes convinced Mr. Townsend the
burglars were familiar with the premises.

Maj. Sylvester Says Too Much Has
Been Said, But Inspector Board
man Is on the Job Yet.
"I have nothing to say," was the re
sponse of Maj. Sylvester, chief of police,
| when asked this morning by a Star re
porter for his version of the shooting of
F. Bernard Stevens, paying teller at the
[ United States Savings Bank, Saturday
"There has already been too much talk
ing done about the afTair."
Inspector Boardman, chief of detectives,
said there have been no developments in
the case which will assist the men In his
office to solve the shooting. The case, he
said, is being futther investigated. He
thinks, in the course of time, the police
Will find out what happened.
Bank officials are still satisfied that the
wounded man has told only wiiat oc
curred at the bank. I'ntil something to
the contrary Is shown their confidence in
him. they assert, will not he shaken.
The wounded man is still under treat
ment in the P^mergency Hospital. It may
be several days before he is able to
leave there.
Nan Patterson 111.
Mis. A. Martin, formerly Nan Patter
son, is also still under treatment. It was
stated at the Patterson apartment this
morning that she is seriously ill, and that
two physicians are In attendance.
She has had some heart trouble during
recent months, a Star reporter was told.
Excitement following the notoriety given
her this week, he was informed, has made
her 111.
Saturday night, about the time the
| shooting occurred, Mrs. Martin was with
her brother at his place of employment
waiting to accompany him home. A tele
phone message telling of the shooting was
received. Brother and sister hurried to
the hospital, reaching there about the
time the ambulance arrived with the
wounded man.
When young Stevens was taken into the
operating room Mr. Patterson and his sis
ter followed and assisted In holding the
sufferer while the surgeons explored the
wound. Since then frequent visits have
been paid to the hospital by Charlie Pat
terson, his sister having also gone there
to see the patient until she became ill.
F. Bernard Stevens, father of the
wounded man, lives in Norfolk, Va., and
is connected with the Monticello Wine
President Karrick Wants Truth.
James L. Karrick, president of- the
United States Savings Bank, told a Star
reporter that nothing had yet developed
to shake the story of the shooting told
by Stevens.
"I am anxious to ascertain the truth
of the matter," he said. "If anybody has
any information to show that what Ste
vens said is not true I would only be too
glad to get hold of it. ?
Mr. Karrick repeated that he had every
reason to believe that Stevens' version
of the shooting is the correct one.
Dr. Charles S. White, attending sur
geon, said this afternoon that the wound
ed bank clerk was much Improved. Ste
ven* is still suffering from nervousness,
however, the physician stated, and may
remain in the hospital until Sunday, al
though he may leave there tomorrow.

Henry Marshall Pinkard.
Dr. Henry Marshall Pinkard, a physi
cian of the District for many years, died
at 4:15 o'clock yesterday afternoon at the
Ueorge Washington University Hospital
from Blight's disease.
Dr. Pinkard had not been in active
practice for some time past because of a
complication of diseases and advancing
years. He was a highly esteemed member
of the medical profession and his passing
ie regretted in circles where he was
known and appreciated.
Henry Marshall Pinkard was born in
Albemarle county, Va., in 1K17. He grad
uated from the Jefferson Medical Co'lege
in 1855. Dr. Pinkard was appointed a
burgeon in the Confederate army In 1861
and served at the Winder and Jackson
hospitals. Richmond. Va., until the close
of the war, when he went to Annapolis,
Md., and entered upon the practice of
medicine. While at the capital of Mary
land he purchased the City drug store,
which had a large patronage.
He came to Washington to reside in
187(5, purchasing a drug store on Pennsyl
vania avenue, later selling the establish
ment and resuming the practice of medi

Attorney General Talks of Re
organization Plans.
To Be Fully Considered After Con
gress Oets Away.
Purpose Merely to Bfing About
Closer Relationship of Law
' Branches With Departments.
Attorney General Wickersham has made
it plain that there will be no hurry about
the working out of President Taffs idea
for closer relationship between the De
partment of Justice, the interstate com
merce commission, the bureau of corpo
rations of the Department of Commerce
and Labor and the law branches of the
other departments. It has been thought
that perhaps drastic measures would be
taken and that an effort would be made
to "clean up" at once. In the opinion of
Mr. Wickersham this work is a "summer
jbb," one to be carefully considered after
Congress adjourns and when more urgent
matters have been disposed of. 8ome
progress has already been made, but the
details of the plan are yet to be worked
In discussing his program with a Star
reporter the Attorney General said fur
ther that there was absolutely no truth
in the reports that there was friction be
tween the Department of Justice and the
interstate commerce commission. From
the members of that body, Mr. Wicker
sham said, he had found most cordial
support. Several of the members of the
commission have impressed Mr. Wicker
sham highly with their ability and knowl
edge of the matters which come under
their supervision.
Several Conferences Held.
"There have been several conferences
on the subject of the proposed reorgani
zation of the methods in investigating and
prosecuting corporations or common car
riers dolt g interstate business for viola
tion of the anti-trust laws or the inter
state commerce laws, * said the Attorney
"Commissioners Knapp, Lane and
Prouty and Secretary Moseley of the
interstate commerce commission have
been to see me several times. Secretary
aagel of the Department of Commerce
and Labor and I have discussed the mat
ter lrom the standpoint of our depart
ments, and I have also gone over the
situation with Secretary Ballinger of the
Interior Department.
"The members of the Interstate com
merce commission have been most cor
dial, have shown the most active interest
in the President's plan and have evinced
a keen desire to do everything in their
I power to assist in the work of reorganiza
"The various conferences that have been
I held so far have been in the nature of
informal discussions of existing conditions
with a view to finding out what must be
changed and the best methods of making
the necessary changes. We are meet
I ing many questions as they come up.
Our conferences will continue through the
summer and by the time Congress con
I venes next December we will be able to
present the President with a clear state
ment as to what legislation, if any, Con
I gress will have to pass to enable us to
I reduce our legal machinery to the proper
Looking After Anti-Trust Cases.
The Attorney General is also going
I slowly in the matter of the various anti
trust cases which are now in the hands
of his department. He has not made
and will not make any attempt to lump
I all the cases and pass upon them at
I These cases," said Mr. Wickersham,
"are being looked after by Mr. Wade
Ellis. He is considering them singly,
and as he arrives at his conclusions in
I each case he turns his report over to
me. I review the evidence and his find
ings and make my report to the Presi
dent. It would be not only unjust, but
J impossible, in my opinion, for me to at
I tempt to arrive at any sweeping deci
sion as to what should be done with all
the pending anti-trust cases."
Among the first evidences bf the dlspo
1 sltion on the part of the present admin
istration to deal effectively with offenders
against the various federal laws is the
action of Secretary Ballinger In cleaning
out the legal branch of the Interior De
partment. Several men who under the
I last administration were engaged in inves
tigations under the assistant attorney
general for the Interior Department have
been taken off that work and given berths
as pension examiners. This move raised
a row, and Secretary Ballinger was ac
I cused of being hard-hearted.
In reply Mr. Ballinger pointed to the
fact that the reports of some of the In
spectors and investigators under his de
rpartment had resulted in an unnecessary
duplication of work. Many of these In
spectors had little knowledge of what
constituted legal evidence. They found
certain facts and recommended the insti
tution of civil suits or the presentation of
the cases to grand juries. When their re
ports were taken up by the Department of
Justice it was too frequently found that
the inspectors had gone off "half-cocked"
and that there was no basis for either
suits or grand jury hearings.
Aiming to Get Results.
| This duplication of work is one of the
things the President wishes to obviate by
his proposed reorganisation of the gov
ernment's legal machinery. When an in
spector or special attorney is sent into the
field under the Taft administration he
must be a man capable of turning in a
I report that his superior officers can act
j 'The truth is." said a prominent gov
ernment official today, "that when we
start a suit It will be with a view to get
ting blood. Shooting rapidly and at ran
dom may attract a lot of attention, but
it does little real harm to those shot at
The President has gathered some pretty
good legal marksmen around him. and
they are the kind of men that hit what
they aim at. Furthermore, they are not
going to take aim until thev get a real
good look-at the object they Intend to
shoot at. There will be fewer suits filed
under the Taft administration, but there
I will be more convictions."
