PLEAOS FOB BIG NAVI BEFORESOUTHERNERS Secretary Daniels Also Explains to Commercial Congress Ne cessity of Merchant Marine. CHARLESTON. Dec. IS. Southern commercial Interests require a strong navy .and an efficient merchant marine. Secretary Daniels, today told the South ern Commercial Congjess. "When the war, opened." he said, freight on a bale of cotton rnnged from J1.50 to $2.50. Now tho planter must pay from $5 to $15 tho highest tax ever Imposed. And event at this price there is not enough of a merchant marine to care for shipments. "The South cannot raise cotton and tobacco if America Is not to acquire and maintain an elclent merchant ma rine, and protect it with an adequate navy. For tho bulk of the South's crops must find their market overseas. "Our own navy and our own mer chant marine have suffered because of Indifference. But the present war should have shown us both the necessity for an efficient marine and for a navy." The South should be D.irtlcularly In terested In the navy as a defense In strument. Daniels said, because of Ur 2,400-mllo coastline, and because of tho treasures of cotton, lumber, corn. Iron, and oil which an enemy might attempt to seize. ' Southern naval heroes and Southern naval exploits wero Dralscd by the Secretary.

It was at, this time mat we receiveu ucvn -v tho American missionary, Dr. Knapp, had been wounded In an Armenian house, and that the Turkish govern ment had sent him to Dlarbeklr. The very first night In Dlarbeklr he died, nnd tho government explained his death as a result of having overoatcn. which, of course, nobody believes. When there was no ono left In Bltlln to massacre, their attention was call ed to Musch. Up to now cruelties were committed, but not too publlclV ; now they started to shoot people down without any cause; they beat them to death because they found delight 4a doing so. "In Musch Itself, which Is a big Inwn. there are alone 25.000 Armen ians; around Musch there are 300 vil lages, every village containing about BOO houses: and not one male Armen Ian, and but a tew women here and there are visible now. "Beginning of July: In the first week cf this month. 20.000 soldiers camt fiom Constantinople over Harput to ( Musch wltn munitions anu eleven guns, and besieged Musch. In fact, the town had been surrounded since the middle of June. At this time tho Mutessarlt gave orders that we two German missionaries should leave the town and go to Harput. Wo pleaded with htm to let us stay, for we haa ir. our charge all tho orphans and pa tients, but he was angry and threat ened to force us away if we did not 00 as we were instructed. As we boCi became sick, we wero allowed to re main nt Musch. I received permission in case we should leave Musch to take the Armenians of our orphanage along, but on my asKlng ror assur ances or safoty. his only reply 'You can take them along; but, Armenians their heads may be cut off on the way.' "On the 10th of July Musch was bombarded for several hours, they pretenJed the reason was because some Armenians had tried to escape. 1 went to see the Mutessarlf, asking him to protect our houses and his re ply was: 'Serves you right for staying Irstead of leaving, as Instructed. Tlio guns are here to put an end to Musch. Tako refuge with the Turks.' This, of course, was not possible, as we could not leave our charges. A new order was the next day promulgated that the Armenians would be expelled, and three days were given them to be rtady. They were told to register themselves at the government oflie beforo they lert. The ramllies coula re train, but their property and their money was to be consficated. "The Armenians were unable to go, as they had no money to pay for the trip, and they preferred to die In their houses rather than be separated and en dure a lingering death on the road. As mentioned before, three days were given the Armenians to leave, but two hours had scarcely elapsed when the soldiers broke Into the houses and arrested every one and threw them Into 'nrlson. The cannons began to fire, thus pre venting tho people from registering themselves at the government office. We all had to take refuge In tho cellar for fear of our orphanage catching tire. "I went to the mutessarlf and begged him to have mercy on the children at least, but in vain, he replied the Ar menian children must perish with their nation. All our people were taken from our hospital and orphanage. Thej left us three female servants.
