Th* Forte's Ad slaty to Have the United States Kepreeentad— Fresh Re port* of Outragea Re ceived. By the Antedated Press. CossTANTiNorLK, Dso. 7.— President Cleveland haa aent a cable meaeage here saying he baa reconsidered hie decision not to aend an American delegate with tbe Tnrkiah commiaaion appointed to inquire into the Armenian outragea, and will allow the American legation here to nominate a delegate. The Turkish government ia manifest ing a great desire to show the powers tbat ths United Statea wae flrat aaked to aend a delegate with the Armenian com miaaion, but declined. Tbe earl of Kim berly, British secretary for foreign af faire, waa also requested to nominate a delegate, and immediately aeaentsd. Washington, Dec. 7.—The announce* ment by tbe Associated Presa in a oable dispatch from Constantinople that Prea ident Cleveland bad reoonaidersd his original intention and decided to send an American delegate with the Turkiah commiaaion to inquire into the Arme nian outragea, was shown to Secretary Gresbam today. "The department officials have been much in the dark aa to the Armenian troubles," aaid he, "but at laat in formation was received that warranted action, and this baa been as announoed. The course of the United Statea haa been marked by great prudence and a desire to refrniu as far aa tbe dictates of humanity would permit from any en tanglement in European politics. Aa the aignatory powers of the Berlin treaty at tbe cloae of the Turko Russian war had bound themselves to look after the welfare of Chriatiana in Turkey, it would have been nnwarranted interfer ence by tbe United States in tbe af fairs of those countries, bad we taken any steps without solicitation from one or more of tbeae powers, beyond caring for the intereata ol United States citizana in Turkey. So when Turkey requested Minister Torell to name a member of a committee on inquiry, the requeat wae, ior politio reasons, de clined. "Turkey bad naturally turned first to the United Statea, aa tne only Christian power whoae conclusions would be likely to carry weight witb the Christian world, upon whoae abaoluts disintsreat edneaa she conld rely. Tbe Christiana of Europe were under auspioion of having designs upon Turkish integrity, and yet it waa necessary, in order to item the tide of rising indignation, to place a Chriatian on the committee of inquiry, ii ita findings were to be conolueive upon Europe. The United States having de clined to join, the porte was obliged to yield to the extent of permitting the European governments to name com nvssionere. ' Up to h l p :ntf-;e government bad been in doubt, aa to tbe reality ol tbe reported outrages. Tbe Turkiah govern ment bad declared poaitively that the Armenian affair was nothing but a re bellion, and it bad been suppressed in a legitimate manner. There had been a battle, some GO or 70 Turkish soldiers had been killed and tbe rebels lost 500 or 600 men. But at this juncture came reporta from trusted agents discrediting the official reports of the Turkish govern- j ment, and affording reaeon for the belief that ths Armenians had bean terribly outraged. Then Great Britain appealed to the United Statea, in the intereat of justice, and to receive a report above auspicion and above tbe contravention oi the Turks themselves^to appoint a member of the committee of inquiry. This appeal turned tbe tide and induced the president to reconsider his first de cision. But, to avoid any appearance of entanglement witb other powers which might in the end result in making the United Statea an active party to a con troversy with which it ia contended we have properly nothing to do. It waa decided the American repreaentative ahould, while accompanying the com mittee, act with absolute independence, ahould hear what he could in Armenia, and instead of joining in the conclu sions oi the committee, ahould make a aeparate report to the atate depart ment." Probably because of hia nearneaa to the scene of trouble and also his ante cedents, Milo A. Jewett, United States consul at Sivaa, waa selected to act aa the repreaentative of the United States in making tbe inveatigation. Mr. Jewett waa horn in Turkey of American parents, hia father being a missionary. He came to tbe United States in hia youth and waa educated in Massachua etts. lie wan appointed consul to Sivas by President Harrison in 1892. Athens, Deo. 7. —A further story of outragea by Turks has been told by an eyewitness of the occurrences. An Ar menian hae just arrived iv thia city from Hadjin, an Armenian town, from which place he escaped shortly after the outrage was perpetrated. Hadjin waa a town ol 1200 wooden houses, situated near Marash. The refugee states that on the night of October 23d four Turkish officers and two gendarmes Bet !i;e to the town, using petroleum to cause the more rapid spread of the tUuiea. An Armenian named Medde kian Gsrabed, witb his mother, wit nessed the incendiaries at their work and cried for help. A Turkish official who was appealed to to send help to ex tinguish the fire, refused to permit as sistance. Gerabed waa seized by order of tbe officiala and thrown into prison. Three daya laater Garabad was killed and hie body thrown into the ruina ol hia burned house. KiaoUSb MARINER*. Th* Or«w Taken oft* a Sinking Ship off Cap* Born.
