FUN FOR THE LAWYERS.
Oan. A. I>. Bart Goaded to l>«»p.ration
by Hia Former Law Stndeut.
Sacramento, Deo. 7.—A rather sensa
tional feature occurred in tbe superior
court tonight during tbe trial of a bur
glary esaa. A youth named Rains was
caught in Lawyer A. L. 1 i art's bouie
one nigbt some weeks ego, and hia trial
commenced yeaterday. General Hart
being abaent in Woodland, tbe diatriot
attorney conducted the prosecution
alone. When the burglary occurred,
and for a year or two prior thereto,
William P. Harlow was a stndent in
Hart'a office and two weeks ago waa ad
mitted to practice by the inpreme
court.
The flrat caae he got waa that of young
Rains, and when Hart was told of it, he
informed Hailow tbat Rama could not
be delanded by hia office. Harlow de
cided to atay by hia client, co he and
Hart severed their relatione, both pro
fessionally and socially.
Tonight on Hart'a return from Wood
land ha took tha witneaa stand to testify
againat the prisoner. Great fnn was
expacted by lawyera and others when
Harlow atatted in to cross-examine the
general, bnt tbey got even moro than
they bad bargained for. After asking a
number of tantalizing queationa, Harlow
finally got Hart so angry that be forgot
the court's frequent warnings and re
plied in auch terms tbat be was fined
$25 for contempt of court, A few min
utes later tbere waa another outbreak
and Hart waa fined $50 more. This was
repeated in almost tbe next breath, and
finally the district attorney implored
the oourt not to be ao severe on tbe
witness, as he was greatly excited.
All thia time Hariow maintained hie
composure and seemed to take a eort of
riendiah delight in prodding hia former
friend and tutor. Once when the court
reprimanded bim for aaking aoms quea
tion, be apologized and reminded the
court tbat it was a new business to him,
and beaide he had received hia school
ing in General Hart's office. Tbe caaa
finally weat over.

THE OUTRAGES ON ARMENIANS.
Proposed Inyestigation of the
Massacres.
Aa American Delegate to Assist in
the Work.
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.

■mail town in tbe interior of tbe Indian
territory.
Col. A. J. Blackwell, well known in
tbe weat, wee arrested for soiling land,
and according to tbe Cberokee laws
sentenced to death for high treason,
j Blackwell, when tbe territory first
opened for settlement, fonnded tbe town
of David end started a new sect, pre
tending to be a prophet sent of God. He
engendered the ill will of a number of
Gherokeea, wbo, it ia now said, hatched
up a conspiracy to put him out of tbe
way. Two weeks ego Blackball was
taken from the midst of his family by
order of the Cberokee eouncil, and be
ing brought to Ctaremont, was placed in
close confinement end fed upon bread
and water.
On Monday, the story goes, Black
well, after beine clean shaven and
stripped of hie clothing, was brought
before Chief Ohaha and asked to con
fess. Blackwell answered that he had
no confession to make, that he was the
victim of a conspiracy, end aaked to be
released. Instead, he was carried off
bodily to the "Needles," a place of tor
tare adjoining the prisou, where he
was subjected to treatment horrible in
the extreme. Ten bucks, dancing around
their victim end each wielding a steei
nsed for the purpose, jabbed the naked
flesh of Blackwell, nntil exhausted, he
sank to the ground. In this condition
be was finally taken back to bis former
cell and still remains in irons, hand and
foot, notwithstanding the fervent ap
peals of his relatives and friends.
