Representative Magulrn's Vigorous Oppositiou to It. Government Ownership the True eola tion of the rroblom - Transcon tinental Freight Kntea to Be Ballad, Br th* Aiioclated Press. Washington, Dec. 8. —Representative Maguire of California will make vigor ous opposition to tbe effort to take up tbe Pacific railroida funding bill. He will eleo contest tbe msature on tbe floor if Chairman Reilly succeeds in having Speaker Crisp fix a time for con sideration oi the bill before the holidays. Said Maguire: "It is true the bonds are about to ma ture and tbe government will have to meet them, but it has been paying in terest on the bonds for years, and these payments for interest reach tbe amazing figure of $50,000,000, while tbe principal is only $37,000,000. There should be no alarm, therefore, over tbe payment of tbe principal when the government bas already paid ont twice as much as tbe prinoipal. "The main objection to tbe pending bill is tbat it extends for 60 years tbe absolute dominion of tbe Pacific roads over tbe traffic of tbe great west. It also limits tbe security of tbe govern ment to certain designated roads. It will be better if congress lets the subject alone and makes no adjustment, ratber than make one ol disadvantage to the government and to western develop ment." Maguire was asked if congress did not act wbetber tbe Pacific roads would not lapse into governmemt control. "Undoubtedly they will," said he, "and it wonld be a practical realization of government ownership of railways. It would not be necessary for the gov ernment to operate them, however, un less private interests refused to carry them on, Tbeir lorfeitute to the gov eminent would follow tbe coarse of any '. other mortgage forfeiture, and actual assumption of government proprietor ship wonld come some time between January 1, 1896, and January, 1899." THE PANAMA ROAD. It Will Continue Its Opposition to the ' P»cllic Mall. San Francisco, Die. 8 —E. 11. Hin ton, local representative of tbe Panama Railroad oompany, announces that the souapeny has leased all tbe shins now operating on the through line between New York and San Francisco, five in number, until May 1, 1895. This makei icrtiin the continuance of the open see line for several months yet Thii contlnuanoe of tbe lease of these Ihips will round out a full term of one rev of service by tbe Panama Railroad fompeny, sinoe the line was dropped by lh9 No ll n ABMrl o»n Navifation com jeny. Tbe indication afforded by this s that the belief hai obtained at New fork that Ibe poiiibllitiu of the line oould not be satisfactorily tested within less than one year. Really, the Panama people have operated over one year on this side of tne isthmus, as tbe North American Navigation company was assistsd to carry out its contract which expired last May. It has been a matter ol com mon knowledge among railroad men tbat tbe Panama road could have made a deal with tbe transoontinental lines any time during tbe past year, but it bas not seen fit to do so. On the contrary, it has continued on an independent basis, making rates of its own, keeping open the sea route for competition, and getting all the busi ness it could secure in both directions. It is clearly tbe intention of tbe Panama company to continue its opposition to Pacific Mail and tbe transcontinental railroads. GOVERNMENT OWNERSHIP.

A Gauzy Attempt to Justify Turkish Atrocities. UarbWd Quotations From an American Mlaalonarj'* Report to Show the Armenians Deserved Punishment. By the Associated Press. Constantinople, Deo. 8. —The porte, in euppori oi its reply to statements oi tbe Armenians, placed great reliance upon an article written by Dr. Cyrus Hamlin, formerly president of the Roberts college here, a distinguished Armenian scholar, who is thoroughly familiar with tbe situation. Tbe arti cle referred to was published in the Boston, Mass., Oongregationalist of De cember 29, 1893, and copies of it in documentary form are now being sent to tbe powers interested in tbe Armenian question. Tbe article referred to above, upon whioh the Turkish government sets so much reliance in eatablishing its caee against tbe Armenians, is as fol lows : "A dangerona movement among tbe Armenian revolutionary party is caus ing great evil and suffering to the mis sionary work and to tbe whole Christian people of certain parts of tbs Turkish empire. It is a secret organization and ia managed with a skill in deceit which is known only in the east. In a widely distributed pamphlet tbe following an nouncement ie made by the Hunlacha giat revolutionary party: 'This is tbe only Armenian revolutionary party. Ita oenter is in Athens and its branches in every village and city in Armenia. Nishan Garabed, one of the founders of tbe party, is in America, and those de siring to get further infoimation may communicate with bim, addressing Nishan Garabed, Mo. 7f> Fountaine street, Worcester, Mass., or with M. Benaire, Poate Keatanta, Athena, Greece.' "A very intelligent gentleman who speaks fluently and correctly English as well at Armenian, and who is an elo quent defender of the revolution, as sured me they have the strongest hopes of preparing tbe way for Russia's en trance to Asia Minor to take possession. In answer to the question, how? he re plied : 'The Hunlachagiet bands organ ized all over the empire will watch their opportunity to kill the Turks and Kurds, fire tbeir villages and then make tbeir escape into the mountains. Then tbe Musselmen will rise and slaughter them with such inhumanity that Russia will arise in the name of humanity and Christianity and take possession.' "When I denounced the scheme as atrocious and infernal beyond anything ever known, he candidly replied: 'It appears so to you, no doubt, but we Ar menians are determined to be free. Europe listened to the Bulgarian horrors and made Bulgaria free. She will listen to our cry when it goes up in tbe shrieks and blood of millions of women and children.' "I urged in vain that this scheme will make the very name of Armenia hateful to civilized people. He replied: 'We are desperate; we shall do it.' " 'But your people do not want Rus sian protection; they prefer Turkey, as bad as she is.' " 'Yes.' he replied, 'and for such stu pidity they will have to Buffer.'" DR. HAMLIN TALKS. Be Says the Turkish Government Hat Garbled Hla Beport. Lexington, Mass., Dec. B,—Dr. Cyrus Hamlin of this olty, whose artiole in tbe Oongregationalist on the Armenian troubles a year ago has bean translated by the Turkish government and sent out to the European powers as a de fense of tbe recent atrocities committed upon the Armenians by the Muaselmsna was seen by a reporter. Dr. Hamlin was for many yeara a mis sionary in Turkey and knowa something of tbe temper of the Turks regarding Christiana. He had, moreover, a seven years' contest with the Turkish author ities over the famous Roberts college in Constantinople, but finally carried tbe day. He aaid: "I have always said tbat the revolu tionary movement ia of Russian origin. Russian gold and craft govern it. That is my opinion still. The Turkiab gov ernment ia wholly inexcusable for the recent atrocities. It baa been published in the newspaper reports tbat word was sent from Constantinople to subdue tbe rebellion. It would be juat as reaaonable to guard tbe wolves of Kurdiatan from, the attacks on the lambs of the plains. The Turkish government shows that it knowa tbe woaknesa of its position by ita frantic efforts to bide the truth from Europe. It will not even allow persons to travel from the region of the existing troubles to tbe capital, and many Arme nians who have attempted to reach Con stantinople have been oaptured by the authorities and cent back. "I have a strong suspicion that the Turkish minister at Washington is in league with Ruaaia. He belonga to the Greek chureb and ia in natural league with Ruaeia. I cannot see why the Turks have sent a Greek to represent them in America. Yeni bas reported to the Turkish government tbat the Ar menians in America are sending arms through Persia into Turkey for revolu tionary purposes. This is childish. I venture toeay there bas never been a rifle or a pound of ammunition sent to Turkey by the revolutionists of Amer ica. The whole of this emanates from Russia, and is merely a subterfuge to give good occasion for Ruaaia to march into Armenia and take control, and if the Turks are to be easily foolsd, let Russia go in and teach them a lesson, although I am etronicly opposed to hav ing Russia do so, because her govern ment will be much worse than the gov ernment of Turkey. "I am profoundly disappointed in the folly and wickedness of the Turkish gov ernment and its action in using what I have written for purpoeea it was never intended and exactly opposed to my views. You mr,y depend that tbe Turk ish government has not produced it in full. lam atill opposed to the revolu tionary movement because itia silly and foolish and tbe Turkish government cau never exculpate itself from the atrocities by reference to any proposed resolution by the Armenians."
