THE SICK MAN OF EUROPE
Appears to Be Very Nearly
Ready to Die
A NEW TURKISH MINISTRY
Causes No Cessation, of Jhc Riotous
Outbreaks
There le Hourly Expectation ol Open and
General Revolt Against the
Rule of the Sultan
Associated Press noeelal Wire.
CONSTANTINOPLE, Nov. 7. — Hall
Rifat Pasha, tha Turkish minister of tne
interior, has been appointed grand vizier
to auceeed Kiamil Paßha resigned. A new
ministry bas been foirood, as follows:
Hall Rlfat. Pasha, grand vizier; Said
Pasha, president of council of state; Tow
lie Pasbn, minister of foreign affairs;
Hassan Pasha, minister of marine; ttifat
Pasha, minister of war; Memduh i'aslia,
minister of the interior; Abdur Rahman
Pasha, minister of justice; Sabri Pasha,
minister of finance; Ariti Pashn, minis
tar with.iut portfolio.
The Turkish minister of foreign affairs
bas promised to givo the ambassadors of
the powers a delinite reply within two
days as to what steps the porte intends to
take for the restoration nf order in Ar
menia and to provide for tho protection
of Christians in that part of the Turkish
empire. Direct warning has been given
tbe sultan that Europe wilt intervene to
restore order in At men in unless the Turk
ish government acts promptly. Each day
adds to the difficulty of the task before
the porte.. From Syria, especially, most
disquieting rumors are coming, and that
tbey are based on facts is s,.own by tho
mobilization of twenty tattulions of
redifs out of sixty nvailables and steps to
dispatch them to that portion of Asiatic
Turkey. This lends color to the report
that tbe Armenians arc receiving support
from unexpected sources, und the Turk
ish government may soon be face to face
with open, widespread revolt against the
rule of the sultan. Arrests of Ajnieninn
and Turkish suspects are constantly be
ing made here and elsewhere. Possibly
the moat grave turn in recent events lies
in the fact, established beyond doubt,
tnat dissatisfaction against the rule of tbe
sultan has extended to the Turkish army
and navy, and that palace officials nre in
a state of tue greatest altrm. Nobody
here would be astonished to bear any mo
ment of an outbreak in the palace itself;
in fact, people well versed in Turkish
affairs assert that only a prompt abow ot
force upon the part ot tbe European Meets
can avert it.
Trustwoithy reports which have been
received here from Ezsiouru state that it
has been established beyond disouto tbat
the Turkish troops took part in the re
cent massacre ami pillage of Armenians
there, and it is added tbat clear evidenoe
of this fact will be placed before the rep
resentatives of t c powers.
Private accounts represent the conai
ion of ihe Asiatic provinces of Turkey
as being deplorable in the extreme. A
veritable, reign of terror is said to exist
and bloodshed and robbery are of daily
oc urrence.
Tba police of this city are kept busy
night nnd day watching everybody and
everything. To such an extent ia tnis
system of police) surveillance carried that
two servants in (he employ of English
merchants nere have ocen arrested while
returning from the postofties with letters
and newspapers. The loiter were seized
by tbe police in spite of the protests of
tne servants and were carried away tv the
police depot tor examination. The Eng
lish merchants promptly complained to
the British charge d'affaires and the Hon.
Michael Herbert, aud tuo latter has made
strong representations to the pnrie on
tne subject. Of course such a state uf
affairs cannot be allowed to exist much
longer, as tbe lives of nil Christians in
Armenia are in danger and there is hour
ly expectation of tho most serious trouble
in almost every part of the Turkish em
pire. The mere colling out of the army
reserve* will have veiy little or no effect
upon the situation as" the troops cannot
be relied upon iv such an emergency nnd
tne wretched condition „f Turgisb
finances bars anything like wholesale nnd
energetic aclion on the part of tno Turk
ish government unless a holy war is pro
claimed and that could only be uoiih by
inflaming tho religions fanaticism 01 thu
Turk against the Christians. This, itii
believed, Ihe porte would not hesitate, to
do in the caso of an invasion of the Turk
ish dominions, but such it step would not
be calculated tv suppress interior dis
orders, the basis of which should be the
protection of the Christian population of
Armenia.

juncture nf affairs in tbe Turkish empire.
NEW YORK, Nov. 7.—Tho Evening
Post's London cabicgrnm Bays the suit in
of Turkey lias issued a rtecrae authoriz
ing the Impetial Ottoman oank to defer
payment of its notes and deposits for a
month. The hnnk, however, declines as
sistance and is meeting its engagements,
it is asserted that over $1,000,001) j„ gold
is on the way from London, I'aris and
Vienna.
PARIS, Nov. 7. —At a meeting hero to
day of delegates representing Armeninn
colonies In vur.ona parts of Europe it was
resolved to address an appeal lo tbe six
powers which signed Ibo llcrlin treaty
urging Immediate intervention to stop
"the methodical extermination of the
Armenians, which is being carried out
by the Ottoman government."
Washington, Nov. 7.—Tbo Turkish
legator] announces the following tele
gram from the sublime porte under yes
terday's date:
"All the news concerning plots, threat
ening letters and a supposed dissatisfac
tion in tbe ranks of tbo army and navy is
intentionally propagated by well known
newspaper corespondents affiliated with
the Armenian committee to alarm public
opinion. As for the oft repeated asser
tion of tha intended extermination of the
Armenians, it is too absurd to be con
tradicted. Tho effoits of the imperial
government tend, on tiie contrary, to
quell the revolt of the Armenians, an 1 to
resist their criminal and bloody agita
tion.
"The Armenian agitation at Diarbekir
waa on tbe point of subsiding when the
Armenians began again their attacks on
the Mussulmans by throwing bombs at
thoin ami by firing at tho Muzzeins at
the very tirre when the latter were call
ing tba faithful to prayers. During the
affray fifty Mussulmans and ninety Ar
menians were killed and woundod.
"Armenian noters attacked the patrols
at Sivrik. kill.ng a few Mussulmans and
setting tire to the bazar. Two hundred
Arnieniun revolutionists living at Kiv
riok. chief of tbe parish of Ferns, at
tached the "Hinge of Lehoukour Hissar
and killed twelve Mussulmniis.
"Sonic of the agitators wore arrested,
including part of the Armenian urigands
who capturod Hadji Hassan Oglouhousni.
All news published as to tho occ irronoe
of trouble at Adana, Taisus and Mcsiner
is absolutely without foundation.
LONDON, Nov. 7.—The Constantinople
correspondent of the Standard sends an
Intervisw with Said l'usha, in which be
says he could not claim that the Turkish
administration was snow white, but it
was certainly not as black as it wan
painted. The ministers, iie snld, were
working hard to curry out the scheme of
reform, ami counted upon England's gen
erosity not to increase the difficulties by
encouraging the revolutionary Armen
ians, wno, instead of being grateful for
the concessions that had baon made,
were openly revolting throughout Asia.
A dispatch to the Standard from
Vienna says it is nelieved the changes in
the Turkish ministry are Intended to up
peasc Mahomniedan disaffection, and aro
not demonstrations against England, al
though Kiamil I'asha,the outgoing Grand
Vizier, was the most pro-English of the
pashas.
LONDON, Nov. 7.-The Daily News'
Constantinople cm respondent, whose
sympathies lean toward the Armenian
aide, admits that the Moslem attacks
have aroused such a spirit of opposition
and despair among the Armenians that
Instead of allowing themselves to be
killed quielly.as at Ticliizond and Annis
ssr, the Armenians themselves com
menced tiie attack al Zcitouni, Erzeroum
and elsewhere, besides making ill-ad vised
and mischievous demonstrations in Con
stantinople.
"It will take yearß," the correspondent
continues, "to revive confidence and
trade and commerce lost through the
present condition of anarchy, due to the
deplorable weakness and inaction of the
government."
As an instance of this the correspond
ent cites the fact that tno United States
minister lias been trying for two months
to obtain permission for United States
Consul l'ocbe at Aleppo to see an Amer
ican citizen of Armenian origin, who has
b en sent to prilOO there fo life.
It is pointed out that Minister Terrill
bass eined orders from the two grand
viziers to the local authorities at Aleppo
lima t this permission, which has eith
er been rescinded before the consul hod
an opportunity lo act upon it or has
b»en disobeyed by the local government,
tbe desired result being evaded ruthei
tbrin refused,
"This is mo c remarkable," the Daily
News oorrespondenl observes, "because
Mr. Terrill has considerable personal in
fluence with the porte. Yet, now, after
demanding the dismissal of the vali at
Aleppo or that tne porte itself should as
sume responsibility for refusal, he lias
only succeeded 1 1 getting an order lor
the prisoner to be br mglit here."
J. B. HAGGIN ILL
Though the Millionaire Seems Not to Be In
Danger
NEW YOKE, Nov. 7.-Mr. J. B. Hag
gin, tbe California millionaire, is seri
ously ill at his New York home. Little
more than n week ago Mr. Hagein, who

Olten necessitates a paimiu upeiasiun!
Mr. Huggin cheerfully expressed the
opinion last night thai he would be well
and out again next week. The doctor is
not incline! io view the case quite so
favorably although there Is no cause for
serious alarm i.i Mr. Hoggin's condition.

AMBASSADOR T. F. BAYARD
Addresses the Edinburgh Philo
sophical Society
HE GLORIFIED THE UNION
As a Patriotic American Should Have
Done
And Paid Hia Respects to Socialism and Pro.
tection In Words of No Uncer
tain Soun.l
Associated Press Special Wire.
EDINBURGH, Nov. 7.-Tho United
States ambassador, Thomas F. Bayard,
delivered the inaugural address this even
ing to the phil sophio society. It was
entitled "Individual Liberty, the Germ of
National Progress and Permanence."
'I he paper read by Mr. Bayard was a
scholarly and patriotic address In which
the institutions of the United States were
gloritied, and upon it Mr. lluyanl has
evidently devoted much labor. It maue
lif.y pages of printed mautter.
The most striking passages were those
in which he denounced socialism and pro
tection. During the course of his remarks
he said:
"Tbe deep movement will not rest in
the breasts of men. The weight of armed
r"presaion and the upheavals of popular
discontent are plainly discernible. While
io some countries the consolidation ot
tbe empire progresses remarkably, in
others its disintegration is unusually
Significant, Tho old dynasties arc drift
ing hopelessly or sinking palpably."
Alter alluding to the preparations for
war on land and sea, which be assorted
were never so formidable as today, to the
lnorvaisng burdens of militarism and to
the hostile attitude assumed toward each
other of capital and labor, Mr. llayard re
marked :
"'lhe movement of today is toward
state socialism as an oppposing force to
autocracy, either of which is despot
ism."
Mr. Bayard then flwelf aS length un the
theme of his addnss, saying that bow
ever society ia framed, it is by personal
characteristics and individual qualities
that its affairs in the ond must be decid
ed. He cnn.inued:
'We are witnessing Ihe decline and fall
of once mighty empires as the result of
oespotie government and the dcslruction
of personal freedom, while those nations
which have aafeguarded the freedom uf
the individnl have changed the face of
the world."
Mr. liny ani spoke at length of the won
derful growth and development of the
United Mates, which, he assured bis au
dience, was due to this cause, and earn
estly invoked tbe opposition of bis
hearers tn state socialism in nil forms.
He also sounded a note of warning
against the many proposals of political
intei lerenco und state management under
the garb of philanthropic aid or paternal
ism.
After discussing what he teimed the
tyranny cf labor organizations, Mr. Bay.
urd said:
"In my country I havo witnessed the
insatiable growth of that form ot .state
socialism styled protect!' n. which, 1 be
lieve, has done more to foster class legis
lation and creale inequality of fortune,
Corrupt public life, bullish men of inde
pendent mind and character from public
councils, blunt public conscience and
place politics v, on tho iow level of mer
cenary soramble than any other single
CiUSe. Step by step, and inrgely owing
to the contusion of civic strife,it has suc
cee ied in vi tainlng control ol the sover
eign power of taxation creating the rev
enue into an engine for sellisb and pri
vate profit.
"Its allied beneficiaries anti combines
are called 'trusts' ami giadually the com
mercial marine of tiie U ited Statrs has
d sappeared, the few vtss is lately built
being nn exception, and proving the rule
us tney wero only built by m king a
breach in the general tariff and naviga
tion laws."
Mr. Bayard quoted at lenetli from the
address of a former commissioner of nav
igation rend at the recent national con
gress of farmers at Atlanta, in confirma
tion of bis views.
"It is incorrect," said Mr. Bayard, "to
speak of protection as a national policy.
That could never be, as it will never he,
anything but fostering of special inter
ests at the expense of the rest. It is
fatal to the hopes of advancement or even
ihe retention of what has been obtained
by civilization."
Iv conclusion Mr.Bayard p.cknowle Iged
the debt owed ny the United States to
Scotland for Hamilton and others, and
paid a trinute to the memory of Scotland
and Burns.

CHICAGO, Nov. /.-The Daily News'
Washington special says: Socretary Car
lisle returned from Kentucky this morn
ing. He promptly gave orders to his act
ing private secretary to say to the news
paper correspondents that he declined to
be interviewed on the result in Ken
tucky. Mr. Carlisle Delieves that tbe re
sult speaks for itself and carries a politi
cal moral with it.
Colonel Sam Gains, chief of mails in
the treasury department, who went home
to vote and returned with tbe secretary,
said: "Colonel Bradlay is a good man.
I was clerk of the court of appeals ot
Kentucky fur mmy years and Colonel
Bradley practic d before the court. Hia
ability ana populatrlty nave not been
overestimated. Rut with these points in
bis favor he would have been 30,000 votes
short of election bad Hardin and Black
burn not sought to override tbe expressed
will of the Democratic party. Kentucky
Democrats wem with Secretary Carlis.e
in his opposition to free silver and made
t.ieir position clear in the platform and
when Hardin and Blackburn went into
the campaign and deliberately led a re
volt against the party platform they met
a defeat they deserved. Prominent Dem
ocrats told me that tbey had come to get
rid of Blackburn and Hardin and these
two irritating features were promptly
brushed aside by Democratic votes. If
Hardin and Blackburn had acquiesced in
the platform and simply omitted tbe
silver issue from tboir speeches both
would have oeen elected."

suy tbey are much encouraged by tbia
result, considering tbo small amount of

short time for work.
The "yes" vote of 170,000 reveals to
them thousands of new friends, they say,
and they will begin at once tbe organiza
tion of tbe new clubs to carry on the agi
tation and to secure municipal suffrage
from the legislature.
On the other bund, the managers of
the Man Suffrage association are particu
larly pleased with the majority of 77,000.
They estimnte that at least 150,C00 votes
were cast by women for the suffrage.
This would leave an available masculine
