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.
"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
"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
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

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

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

that their booty's value will reach high

for croup and diphtheria is in progress
and the results thus far encourage hopes
of success of tbe new remedy. Tbe
disease nnder treatment is tbat of laryn

croup, and the patient is an infant of
12 months, the child of Italian parents.
When summoneu, Dr. £. L. DeCorval
found the babe in an almost hopeless
oondition and the usual remedies pro
duced no improvement. He procured
some anti-toxine from the board of
health. Hypodermic injections pro
duced a remarkable change in tbe
child's oondition, but Dr. DeCorval aayi
it will be necessary to await the normal
period of the disease—seven or eight
days—to complete the apparent cure."

CHEEK OF THE SUBLIME PORTE.
It Tries to Square Itself With
A Gauzy Attempt to Justify Turkish
UarbWd Quotations From an American
Mlaalonarj'* Report to Show
the Armenians Deserved
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
"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,
"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
"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."
