MURDERED BY MOSLEMS.
REVIEW OF THE RECENT BLOODY WORK IN TURKEY. Over 13,000 Christians Known to Have Been Killed?Only One Iustance of Suecesaful Resistance?300,000 Now I)estl tute. Constantinople, Nov. 27.?The following matter has been handed to the European manager of the United Press, who is now in Constantinople. The statement has the full endorsement of Minister Terrell. During the month of October, a considerable part of the Armenian districts in tne provinces of Trebizond, Erzeroum, Bitlis, Van, Harpout, Diarbekr and Sivas, has been laid waste and a number, not yet fully known, of the Armenian inhabitants have been killed by men intent on crushing into impotence the Aarmenian race in Turkey. As the awful tidings have come m by driblets, the Turkisli government has diligently telegraphed abroad in regard to each place, that Armenians had attacked Mussulmans, thus arousing a frenzy of indignation, which could not easily be controlled, but order had been restored after some lnss'of life. The effect of these tele grams has been to cultivate belief that there has been some general rising of Armenians and that we are in the firesence of a calamity which is merev the result of lawless proceedings on tne part of the Armenians themselves. Natural indignation with the Armenians for rising at the very moment when the reform scheme 'was about to be put into operation may be moderated, when it is known lhat up to this date, the only authentic rising of Armenians has taken place at Zeitoum in the province of Aleppo, and far from the scene of the massacre. More over, in such cases as offer opportunity for examination, several circumstances cited in the Turkish dispatches as cases of bloodshed have been provViotto Haati incidents and not causes of the massacres. Men who found themselves assailed by the mob and happened to have arms in their houses, m a number of cases, defended their lives and their families to the last. At Diarbker, where the Christians are generally armed, they made a hard fight and some 1,500 Moslems are said to have been tilled, but aside from this one case, the destruction of from 10,000 to 15,000 1 Christians has not cost the Turk 3 more than two or three hundred lives, i The statement describes specially the preparation beginning in September, made by the Moslems for the gen- ' era! massacre, and plundering began ' on Oct. 20, and goes on to say that '< "only meagre returns have as yet < come in," but the total number of i n.r Armenian Hhrifltians so far UUAUIO VA reported is 13,200. The Statement says: "It is not 1 within the purpose of this paper to 1 enter upon the question of the respon- J sibility for these inasacres mainly con- ' fined to the six provinces especially mentioned in the reform scheme, so 1 empty and painfully wrung from the ( porte. But if the object of the origi- . nators of this massacre were to diminish the Armenian population of these provinces, the maii\ object of the men who did tne work was plunder. Many thousands who must have perished, had the attack been a blind outburst '* of fanatical fury, escaped because it 1 was an artificial movement, where cu- ' pidity was the chief motive used to 1 induce men to engage in it. And to 1 Virtinrtt. nf fhft Tiirfrioh neonle be it WL1U UVUV<?UA - * ? f ?J said that in every one of the places so far heard from in detail, cases occured where Moslems sheltered Armenians saved them from death. NearTri- ( bizond, they saved an entire village. But the very fact that plunder was tne ! chief interest with the men engaged in this crime, makes the position of the ' survivors most precarious because of the universal destitution that has re- 1 suited to the victims. J "A very low estimate of the number thus reduced to absolute want by the loss of all their movable property ! is 200,000 souls, of whom three-fourths : are the wives and children of the ruined traders or farmers. "A survey of the situation of these people gives the following elements of ' their desperate condition: "All trade is broken up. All agriculture in the devasted districts is blotted out for the stock has been carried off, and the implements generally burned. All the poor semblance of manufacturing industries in these dis tricts have been wiped out. At least, in numbers of cases, the ruffians took delight in destroying machinery which ^A%T "PA A* AOMWTT O TTTO TT 4A uioj va;uiu uub uog vi w?nj w sell. Thousands of houses and shops have been burned. Every house or shop plundered was utterly emptied. The first care of the robbers after seizing the money and goods in a shop was to destroy all papers, account books and notes of hana, so that the merchants might not be able later on to claim payment of debts previously incurred. The people who escaped when their houses were attacked iled in such clothes as they chanced to have on, and in some cases even that was taken from them. All their stores ?f food, painfully accumulated for the winter, as is the custom in the rural districts in Turkey, have been carried away. These thousands of wretched creatures, . bereaved, despoiled and despairing, now face the pitiless winter, for on those lofty highlands of Armenia the winter is pitless, and faint at the contemplation of what is before them. Great numbers of them are now dependent on charity for their food. J3ut where a is>inlA nnnnlatinn is tVino cmiitan how loner can local charity support them? Where can they go? What ^ can they do? In the midst of such desolation, how can even the strongest of the men earn their daily bread?" Some space is devoted to the present aspect of the situation. The concluding paragraph is as follows: "This terrible sequel to the publication of long-delayed reforms was foreseen by the American minister, Mr. Terrell, who on the very day when they were published, renewed his demand for telegraphic orders at the porte and made demands for the protection of American missionaries. He refused to leave his post^for months after leave of absence was granted and made no secret of his belief that the real danger would follow the announcement of reforms from Armenia. Did the great powers of Europe forsee the danger? If so, why was no care taken to provide against it. In every town, guards were provided for American missionaries; none have suffered, and the universal expression among Americans here is that their safety is due to Mr. Terrell's prompt and firm action and to American inllu ence at,the place of the porte. As t< whether the central governinen made an earnest effort to restrain fa naticism, it is too early to determine. CHARLES R. ROUSS. Something About the Northern Friend o the South. New York, Nov. 28.?There is n< one hardly in the South who wouh not like to know something mori about this wealthy New Yorker, wh< has offered $100,000 to f stablish a Con federate museum or depository foi relics, and who, following so closeb on this magnificent offer, only a fev days since donated $25,000 toward re building the recently burned Univer sity of Virginia. Of all the interesting characters it this city who have been prominen before the public for the past 30 or 4< years but few now remain. Million aires are numerous, but they are o the numdrum type, and there is little in their lives to occupy the public at tention. There is one, however, whos< history reads much like a fairy story, and who, though advanced in year; and immersed in business cares sufli cient to stagger a man of ordinary strength and vitality, is constantly doing something to astonish these blase New Yorkers, and it is always something worth relating. Nearly everyone in this vast city who can read is familiar with the his tory of Charles Broadway Rouss, the 'merchant prince of Broadway," aj he is sometimes styled. Mr. Rouss, as 90 per cent, of American youth, who have afterwards achieved greatness or wealth have done, began his climb very low down the ladder, and slipped once or twice before he had passed many rounds. His history is one of poverty and hardship, first as a poor but respected farmer's boy, leading a dreary, mono tonous life on his father's farm neat Winchester, Va., restlessly longing for nobler things, yet patiently ploddine and nerformin<r his duties as he saw them. When the war broke out he was a small country merchant at Winches ter with command of perhaps less than a thousand dollars. This faded away before the ad vicing armies and he hastened to cast in his lot with his beloved State. When the smoke of that conflict cleared away he was one of the many thousand not only out an unremunerative job, but minus food and clothes. In this plight he set out for the home of his conqueror and landed in this Christian city with $1.80 in cool cash. There were no bunko men then and few sideshows on the Bowery, consequently he was not disturbed on account of his large possession. Fortunately for himself, Mr. Rouss was not so modest with his possessions and with pluck and luck and plenty of A1 horse sense he scuffled and battled along in one way and another until he became known as a man who had bought out other men's stocks at auction and sold them again for so of cash at reduced prices. After his ascent in prosperity in New York began he had a tumble, with debts to the amount of $51,000 "on his hands," as the saying is, but really I should say on other people's hands. But a little thing like this could not floor this "Napoleon of the auction business." He had only had a taste of weaHh and there his real success began when he entered the ring again. From this time on his career has been one of success upon success. From small cramped quarters he has moved and removed until he finally decided about five year's ago to erect the grand building he now occupies, the fine iron building at 549, 551, 552 Broadway, and for which he has been offered $1,500,0.00. Tne handsome edi fice is 10 stories high, is fireroof and a triumph of the architect's skill and art. In one of these large front windows is a magnificent lifesize painting of General Robert E. Lee by Bruce. Right here I will mention one of Mr. Rouss's peculiarities. While he is a "'I t-j i j ? Qooie-uearieu, urua.u-ix14x1u.cu. mau, who has lived 30 years and gained most of his success in the North, yei he is an ardent Southerner and loves the cause and the people for whom he fought. He is never so happy as when he is donating something to some commendable cause in the South, but for that matter there is no more liber al and charitable man in this city when real distress is brought to his attention from whatever section it may come. The remarkable thing aboul his charities and his donations of othei characters is that they seem never tc make him poorer. The more he gives the wealthier he grows. He has, as he deserves, a charming family, though death has only recent ly bereaved him, one of these being a young sou on whom he lavishes much affection and whom he expects to sue ceed him in perpetuating his sound and profitablebusiness methods. His already great business is con stantly growing and prospering undei his guidance, though for the past yeai his eyesight has totally failed him, Overwork was the cause of it, yet he continues to labor and direct and maj KQ fmind o* Viiej nfflnn 1 .'J VlATirC ftllf ftl every 24. His friends in .the Souti send him many letters of regard anc sympathy for his affliction, and thej are all gratefully received. In this short sketch it has been hare to do justice to a character so rich anc a history so ripe in interesting anec dotes, but I have not attempted to dc more than give a mere outline sketel so that the people of the South maj come a little nearer a correct idea o; the man who evidently has their in terests so much at heart and wh( cherishes so tenderly the recollectior of the memories of his youth so ful of adversity though they were. Steam Pipe It ust. New York, Nov. 20.?The mair steam pipe, nine inches in diameter leading from the main boiler of th< engine room situated in a deep cellai in Oscar Hammerstein's Olympu Theatre, at Broadway and Forty-fiftl: street, burst early today, scalding eleven men, one of whom, Fred Wi nant, the assistant electrician, wai killed instantly. Another man, An drew Huggins, of New York, iii the employ of the people who have charge of the electric plant in the theatre, is in a dying condition. Nine other men were Injured more or less on the hands and face by scalding water. The police have made two arrests in the matter of the explosion. The prisoners are Frederick Sauvau, the steamfitter who designed and placed the plant and John Thompson, steamfitter and electrician. ? FREEDOM'S BATTLE. 5 t A Telling Speech by a CoiiHtant FrI.eixl of Struggling Cuba. New York, Nov. 27.?The cause of Cuba's patriots was the topic of a big f mass meeting held in the hall of Cooper Union last night. The meeting was under the auspices of the Jose > Marti club, composed of Cubans. 1 Mr. Henry Lincoln Winter intro3 duced the Hjn. Charles A. Dana,who was a personal friend of Marti, as 5 chairman of the meeting.He eulogized Mr. Dana as the undying friend of p Cuban liberty. 7 Mr. Dana was received with a veri7 table whirlwind of applause, the entire audience rising and cheering again and againWhen quiet had been restored, Mr. ! Dana spoke as follows, his address l>eJ ing frequently interrupted with ap piausc. I "My friends, Cubans, Americans: [ TiJc warmth of your reception over3 whelms me. I feel that I have done [ nothing to earn such enthusiasm and * such sympathy. I know that it is not 1 a personal feeiing. That every flash 5 of each eye that I see before me expresses the spirit of liberty and the hope of independence for the fairest [ isle of the earth. And all enthusiasm, I delightful as it is, and the soul in 5 which it is founded upon the great principle, liberty for all,order ana the opportunity for every man on God's | footstool to work out the end to which ; nature and providence have directed * him. "My friends.it was one of the pieces of the very good fortune that have [ marked a career not short, that I knew 5 Jose Marti. I knew him intimately. 1 I worked with him, side by side, and ! gathered inspiration from the ideas that flashed from his unquenchable soul. He was a man of conviction,he [ was a man whose sympathies went [ over the whole range of humanity and sought for all the full opportunities of : life. He died worthy. He died in the cause dearest to his heart and w?i who ! came here tonight to recall his lovely character,to admire his great qualities 1 and to feel that a man was consec rated ' wherever he went, may well be con| tent to gaze upon his grave and to feel | that he did not perish in vain. No ; man perishes who follows ideas such | as he followed. " For freedom's battle once begun, 1 RA/nipatliAd hv bleedinc sire to son. | Though baffled oft, is ever won" There was great cheering at this point and Mr. Dana had to pause a few 1 moments till the applause ceased. "And that grave of Marti," he resumed, though it seems to mark the failure and disappointment of his greatest aspirations, is in itself a monument on the roadside which Cuba marches to her great destiny of universal happiness, progress, light and 5 freedom. For my part I can sav that wherever liberty is sought for, mere is my country, and wherever a hand is raised or blow struck to secure the ' freedom of a people, there is my heart 1 and all that 1 can give shall be ren' dered as long as I live. "The freedom of Cuba is a cause that interests all mankind and it is a cause that specially interests all Amer1 icans. It is on the American eonti nent, the last foothold of mediaeval | despotism. It is the last dungeon fin 1 which the sort is perpetuated to im1 prison the human mind and repress the energy of man. "I cannot share that ?inimosil,y 1 against Spain which so many of friends feel and which I know thay 1 feel justly, because that Spain did not make herself; she inherited the dun1 geons and the institutions; she has inherited the despotic practices and 1 what is more, she has inherited pov, erty. ' "Where does she go for the treasure ; that is necessary to maintain her agi| tated system. She cannot draw it from i the pockets of Spanish peasants; she must draw it from the rich fields arid , the divine sky of Cuba. But that ex! cuse can not justify the oppression, the tyranny and the wholesale plunder of that great and beautiful island from which Spain is to suppty- her ' own interests. "So Cuba must be free." The en. thusiasm reached fever heat and the ' audience seemed to have lost control - of themselves under the spell of Mr. Dana's oratory. Hats were iluog in | the air and the women waved their . handerchiefs in their enthusiasm." f. "So Cuba must be free," continued ' Mr. Dana, "and Spain must be reduce d to a system of forced economy. My | friends, I will not detain you longer. l" There are some letters to be read an d | after you will hear speeches from men ( whose hearts are fired with the inspi-1 , ration of freedom, and who will u:je ' words which will correspond to the I , spirit of freedom that pervades all I : i i *?;~i.i ? | _ iicitrus acre wjinguLt. At the conclusion of Mr. Dana's L speech letters oLregret were read from _ Gen. Russel A. Alger of Afichigan, , Albert W. Mclntyre, governor of Colorado, Governor Culberson of Texas, Congressman Amos J. Cum| mings, Gen. Martin T. McMahan,Gen. , Daniel Butterfield,Hon. Patrick Egan, Governor Allen of North Dakota, Sen^ ator Wm. E. Chandler of New Hamp\ shire,Governor Upliam of Wisconsin, P Andrew uarnegie ana Augustus vv. Peters. Congressman Wm. JSulzer was the r next speaker, and he received an enthusiastic greeting. He said in part: . 4'In the present crisis in Cuba my . sympathies are all with the heroic ana patriotic Cubans and I sincerely hope " and believe they will succeed. Cuta must and will be free, and independr ent and in my judgment the end is , near, ihe result inevitable and the Cuban republic will soon take iis * stand among the nations of the world. In this revolution, the sympathy of , every American and every believer in freedom and in liberty should go out to Cuba and the Cubans."

MILLIONS FOR MILLS. "" BOUND TO COME TO DIXIE FROI^ NEW ENGLAND. Ail National Advantage* For Cottoi Manufacture In FaTor of the Soutli Northern Men Who Profited by Fore Sight. The Augusta Chronicle has pub lishecl the following interesting inter view with F. B. Deberard, of the Nev York Dry Goods Economist: "If all the cotton goods of America,' said Mr. Deberard, "reached the con sflmer by the most direct routes, th< average cost of transportation woult be about one-half cent a pound. Th< consumer now pays about about 1. cents a pound freight charges on ev er]' pound of cotton goods ne uses Three-fifths of the total cost of trans portal,ion is abnormal, because it ii paid for moving the raw material awaj from the centers of consumption in stead of towai'd them. "The New England States produc* neither cotton nor fuel. They trans port their cotton 2,000 miles and theii fuel 500 miles, and they transport both away from their final destination in stead of toward it. "And the consumer pays the freight lie pays for carrying the raw materia and the fuel far away, and he pays for bringing it back. "Nevertheless, this abnormal trans portation tax may not be an economic waste. There are many elements o: cost in manufactured products, anc some of them may be relatively s< low as to compensate for those thatar< excessive. "New Engl and pays dear for itsrav material and fuel. To compensate foj excessive cost of these factors it mus have siome exceptional advantages. II it pays more for its transportation i may pay less i'or labor, may be supe rior in. skill, in management, in equip ment, in methods. If it pays mor< than the south for some things, it maj pay less than the south, for othei things;. Machine for machine, it maj turn out more product than tbe south Operative for operative, it may pro duce more than the south. Yard fo: yard and pound for pound, New Eng land's cotton goods must cost less thai the south's, if it continues ix> maintaii its ground. 'If New England cotton goods cos less than southern, cotton goods, i miirf hn Ko/iohqa Kflw "Ericland eret more out of its machinery and worl people: than the south gets. If it doe not do this, itu products co3t more, it days are numl>ered and the end is no distant. "What are the facts?" "They are stated impartially in th 'Looms of the South,' upon which I an now engaged, and every reader cai weigh them for himself. The presen conditions of cotton manufacturing ii the south will be fully and honestl; set forth. None of the data given ar at second-hand. They are the result of careful and prolonged personal in vestigation and inspection. For thi purpose nearly everv leading cotto] mill in the soith ana a large numbe of the minor mills have been visited The data secured are absolutely relia ble. In nearly every Instance the; obtained from the account books of th mills visited, and all figures relatin, to outputs and costs were careful! verified from independent sources. "That the south is entering upon new e:ra of wonderful prosperity cai hardly be doubted by the unbiased ot server. "In the 'Looms of the South,' is oJ fered a true picture of the beginnin, of that prosperity. "A few years ago New England ha *nTTtil in fhp mnrmfflnture of cotto] goods. Practically, the whole Araer: can industry was tnere. With stan ling rapidity, the south lias develope into a formidable competitor. Th long accepted dictum, "cotton good can t l>e made in the south," has bee: proven untrue. Cotton goods ar made in the south, arid for the firs time New England finds in full opera tion against her economic laws tha have hitherto been latent. "With no competitors, New Eng land was under no disadvantages With the south as a competitor, ne natural disadvantages count agains her with full force- The natural ac vantages are .with the south, most c the artificial advantages are with Nev England. Which set of forces are th most powerful? "It is an economic truism that nal ural advantages persist and are of pre gressive force, while ar tificial advan tages diminish and finally disappeai The south produces cotton, coal, tin Iber, iron; and it is close to the cor sumer. New England produces neitb er and it is distant from the consumer As population becomes denser, thi fundamental advantage of the south which can never be lessened, will ex ert continually increasing fore? Cheap raw material, cheap labor, an< nearby markets are economic magnet far more powerful than any opposin, forces, and they are ccrtain sooner o later to attract to their support th fnwaa nvravAH flcainst them at the out set. "These opposing forces, spoken c above as artificial advantages, are pier tiful capital, highly developed skilJ varied development, capable manage ment. All of these New England ha in abundance; but she cannot preven their free migration. They are all th creatures of opportunity, and if th south offers the opportunity, capita and skill will go south and quickl; create the varied developments. "This is not mere theory; it is plain statement of what is actuall Happening now every day, and wit! daily growing momentum. It is th bare truth that the south today ha better mills than the north?they ar the product of the best engineering skill obtainable, and in every detail o construction and arrangement are o the highest and most scientific type They are equipped with the mosi moci ern machinery, embodying; the lates desirabie labor-saving improvement and are of higher average eiliciency attested by quality and quantity o output, than any but a few northei mills. Moreover, they have been con structed at far less cost than othe mills, and represent much less cost pe spindle or per loom than the less elli cient northern mills. With less capi tal invested, they have greater earn ing power than their northern com petitor. "The test of the relative skill em ployed is the quality and quantity o the output. In the comparison of sim ilar grades the output of the best south ern mills is as great, and in some case greater, than that of the best northeri mills. It is produced with the sam< number of machines aud the sami number of operatives, and it is produced at much less cost than the product of the northern mills. Finally d it is of higher average quality than the northern product. So much for the results of skill and experience. a "As to capital, hardly a leading southern mill but numbers among its '* stockholders many northern investors. - Southern energy, southern cappcity and business shrewdness have been the organizing forces. They have - shown that southern men have all - the qualities needful to command suc7 cess, and can without foreign aid develop a great opportunity until it be" comes a great Huccess. Upon the - foundation laid by southern men, sa3 gacious northern capitalists have aided 1 to build a great superstructure, confjs dent in its firmness. t "Leading investors in all river mill stocks are also confident investors in . certain mills in the south, from - which they are receiving large divi3 dends. r "Among the capitalists of Worth - street there are many who have been quiet investors in southern mills, and 3 .were it fiting to publish a list of the 'directors of the mills of the south, the r number of Worth street capitalists to i be found amongst them would cause - a sensation. In one such board elect ed witnin a lew aays, is a prominent . Worth street merchant, a great New 1 York clothing manufacturer, and two 3 New. England manufacturers, identified with cotton goods; whilst among the stockholders are Boston capitalists, ; Maine manufacturers of woolens, and f others who have hitherto believed only I in northern investments. ) " 'I put my first $5,000 investment i in a southern mill, said a Worth street merchant, 'just to help a man along. T I did not regard my investment as p worth anything. Since then, I have t changed my opinion about southern F mills.' t "The merchant in question has now - propably $500,000 invested in various parts of the south in cottOn mills. He 3 is one of the few who understand fully r the greatness of the opportunity, p Those who realize it are already large 7 investors. A steady current of nortn. ern capital is already flowiug south; - and the current seems likely to bep come a torrent before long." ^ A Story of the Sea. j New Yokk, Nov. 25.?Fourteen passengers who arrived on the Ward t Line steamer Vigilancia from Havana t early to-day were found to be provids ed with no acclimated certificates c from the medical inspector at Havana, s and were transferred to Hoffman's b Island, to await the expiration of five t days from the time of leaving Havana.
