A thick cap, presum ably of vapor, appeared over tbe moun tain for a time, but at 4:30 had entirely disappeared. No break in the crater rim was visible from here. Dr. Culver, local weather observer, thinks tbe cap was of vapor and mis', suob aa fre quently collects about tbe mountain, and not smoke or eteam. Many people viewed the mountain with glassea while it was visible. There is no doubt, as reported in these dispatches, that quite a number of people believed they saw amoke coming out of tbe crater Wednes day morning, but now thoy are more of tbe opinion that what tbey witnessed was vapor blown about by the heavy winds in a manner to resemble smoke or eteam. The heavy cap which hung over tbe mountain early in the week, indicated to careful observers the heavy rainstorm which prevailed Friday and Saturday. During the 24 boars ending at sp. m. today, the rainfall was 1.68 inches. AS SEEN FROM SEATTLE. Seattle, Wash., Nov. 25. — Mount Ranier becams visible again this after noon for the first time since tho phe nomena at its summit were observed last Wednesday, and tbe discussion of the subject caused many persons to look at it with anaaual interest, and Henry Surry, who first called attention to the smoke issuing from tne mountain and to the change in ita form, examined it through a strong glaas and adheres to bia original statement, and the only per sona wbo diaoredit it are thoee wbo did not see the mountain last Wednesday and are already committed on tbe sub ject. He aaya the north peak stands out i more distinctly than ever; that a sharp point haa appeared on tbe weat aide and lhat on tbe east side tbere ia a sharp descent witb rough surface, apparently nade by an avalanche. He says that not only did he see smoke last Wednes day, but saw it again today and in smaller volume, yellow in color, and rising straight from the summit. The whole aummit ie again white witb a new fall of anow. Surry bas made a map for future reference. Several other persons confirm bis statements, and be is com petent to speak on the subjsetfor he haa traveled much, seen many volcanoes, and Mb ship once lay becalmed for tbree daya in sight of Mount .Etna. ARIZONA CLIFF DWELLERS. A New Villas;,, of the Extinct Ilio, Found by Prospnotor*. Prgscott, Ariz , Nov. 25.—Recent ar rivals from tho Bradshaw mountains report tbe discovery of a cliff dwellers' village in one of the moat inaccessible cations of tbat range, whicb bas never before been seen by white men. The discovery waa mads by two pros pectors, White and Williams, who did not attempt a thorough exploration, but from their deeoription this ia tbe largest village of the wonderful poople that has ever been discovered. Tbe village is located along the high banka on either side of Willow canon and tho houses are estimated to be 2(50 in number. It i< very difficult to reach thia canon, even with pack animals, whicb accounts for its having so long remained undiscov ered. There are tbree natural terraces along tbe cation wall and tbe dwollinge open back irom these. Narrow steps in- the rock, now almost worn away, aeem to indicate that thia was the method em ployed for aacent and deacent. Several of the houses were explored and large quantitiea of pottery and some instruments, evidently nsed for culti vating tbe soil, were found. In one the ekeleton of a man not over 4 feet 8 in ches in height was discovered. The csiion at this place is half a mile wide and shows evidence of bating been cultivated. If this theory proves to be true it will throw new light on tbe habits of this little known people. So far as known no other evidence has ever been discovered of tbe cliff dwellers having cultivated the soil. A party is now being organized to thoroughly ex plore tbe new found village and the re sult of the reaearch will be awaited witb interest. INHALED GAS. Krv. Father Jninea O'Connor Found Dead In Bed.

THE ARMENIAN OUTRAGES. Bloody Work of Turkish Artillery. , Indignation ot Christendom Aroused. Russia Moving-for mi Investigation of the Matter. No Confidence Felt In the Porte's Com mittee—Aa Appeal to the People of America Id B.half of Armenia. By the Associated Press. London, Nov. 25.—Tha Angio-Arme nian association of this city regards tbe personnel of the committee appointed by the porte to investigate the alleged outragea in Armenia aa unsuitable for the mission. The commission includes Dulah Pasha and Hafiz Tewfik Pasha. Members of the Anglo-Armenian associ ation do not believe tbat they will do more tban recommend tbe wholesale ar ret and trial of those Armeniana who were iortunate enough to escape to the mountains. Advicea received by the Anglo-Arme nian association today indicate that the Turkish artillery, without dieorimina tion, fired on Armenian women and children, as well as the members of the Kurdish tribes. Russia is already moving actively in the matter of the alleged purpose of de manding an investigation into pant atrocities and preventing attacks on the Armenian Christians in the future. Do tailed instructions to this effect have been sent to the Russian representative at Constantinople. AN APPEAL TO AMERICA. A Vote of Sympathy lt.qu.atud for th. Armenian Martyr*. Minneapolis, Nov. 25.—Tbe following proclamation explains itself: A Thanksgiving proclamation from Armenia to the people <of the United States: Thrice happy people of the land of freedom, yon are thankful tbat the lives of your forefathers were spared and God established here a great nation, otauulug upuu liberty buu liecuuui uf conscience. Todoy thore ie an ancient Christum nation tilting around tbe smouldering ruins of ber homes and mangled thous ands of dead. She is robbed of her liberty, but keeps tbo freedom of con science by martyrdom. You have read and you have been horrified by tbe in human cruelties perpetrated upon tbe helpless people of Armenia—men, women and children, brought up like yourselves in Christian geotleneaa and purity. The glory of their martyrdom shines over the world, and the crime is against humanity. The horror of the slaughter and tbe bestial cruelty and foulness of tbe out rage bave chilled the heartland polluted tbo ear of Christendom. I ask the whole American people to declare to the world on thia, the day of their glad Thanksgiving, by unanimous vote, their consternation at the brutal slaughter of thousands of Armenian families and the crushing of mercy and justice with one blow before tha eyes of tbe civilized world. I ask tbem to cant tbat vote, not on paper, bnt on a good Amerioan cent, a dime if they will—but at least one American cent from every man, woman and child whose heart has ached for the stricken Armenian nation, to loos upon the cent or dime ere they cast it and see the United Statee encircling liberty and exultant in the glory of tbeir inherit ance; to dedicate tbat aacred symbol for a mighty protest against all oppression and in sympathy for a bleeding nation. Today as you rejoice, ye people of the United States, tree men of whatever condition, united in tbe glad gatherings of home, think, J pray you, once of Ar menia's ruinß drenched iv the blood of her slaughtered children; think once of tbe horror still crushing the heart of tbe people that remain, and wben you realize tbat it is possible for you to help deliver tbem, 1 know you will do this little work on a glad day heartily, as to Uod. In the name of horror-stricken women in Armenia, I appeal to tbe women and wives of America, and through them to the eons and brothers of their love, for if they will call this vote will be cast and shake the world to an everlasting glory to the woman hood of America. In the name of the martyred Chris tian church of Armenia, I appeal to ail ministern of the gospel and members of all churches and Christian organizations to help swell the vote. The number of ceutß will count the vote and will roll over tho continent of Europe a mighty wave of scathing condemnation of the foul murder of a people in this enlight ened age, and on the swelling tide of this nation's thanksgiving there will peal forth such an anthem of hope as will be a message to fainting Armenia, that tbe spirit of liberty ie not dead but is living in tbe bosom of the American people. And to tbe stupendous power of that vote will be the creation of a national Armenia fund. It will be the life blood of the phil- Armenian associations which strive to have purity of life, honor and property aseured to tbe people of Ar« mania. Pending united organization of all friends of Armenia and for tbe appoint ment of othcere and trustees tbo follow ing honored gentlemen will act aa trus tees of the fund: The mayor of Minneapolis, William H. Eustia; George A. Pillsbury, E C. Chamberlain, president of the Security bank. Men of like national repnte will be asked to be temporary trustees in New York. Tbo trustees will hold the fund inviolate to be used for two definite ob jects only: First—To secure tbe protection of tbe Armenian people in Turkey from furtbe outrages. Sacund—To promote the cause oi ea TEN PAGES. AN INDEX TO YESTERDAY.

A dispatch sent from Port Arthur via Hwang Ju, Thursday, has besn received here. It states that the Chinese fought vigorously. Tbe Japanese lost 250 men killed or wounded. Tbe Chinese loss was over 1000. The dispatch adds that for over a fortnight past Count Oyama'i army has been steadily marching in two divisions down tbe peninsula to Port Arthur. No organized resistance was offered by the Chinese troops for three quarters of tbe march. Since, however, tbere were occasional brushes with tha enemy. On Tuesday the right division ad vance guard bad a skirmish with the enemy, who reti'ed in good order. In the afternoon the fort and village oi Shisy Cbing were captured. Both di visions moved forward during the night. STORMING OF THE FORTS. Early in the morning the right divis ion crept up the range of low hills to tha northwest of Port Arthur and carried them with a rush. Guns were then dragged up and fire opened on a strong redoubt, 1000 yards distant. The enemy returned the fire briskly. The Japanese infantry advanced against a well directed tire without faltering. Shortly before 9 o'clocß the fort was carried by a storm in a most gallant fashion. The Chinese stood for a minute or two against tbe final onslaught, fighting fiercely. Then they fled toward tha dockyard. Tbe right division then advanced in force against the Kokineau fort, which was armed with eeveral heavy Krupp guns which were well served. Scores of men were killed or wounded in this brief advance. At noon tbe fort itself was stormed nnd captured after a short but desperate fight. By 3 o'clock in the afternoon the right division was in full possession of the western part of the stronghold. Meanwhile the left division had been fiercely engaged on the southeast, when the ground was less difficult, but fat from easy. Tbeir progress was momen tarily checked by a heavy fire from three forts that were connected by trenches. These forte were strongly held and were well placed on the high est ground in the vicinity. Tbe Japan ese artillery and the Chinese guns ia the forts kept up a steady tire. Tbe first assault was eplendidly delivered, the Chinese being driven from the works after miking a gallant stand.
