A British Ship Ready to Pass Through the Bosphorus, But the Porte Is Not Ready, Constantinople, Nov. 29.—Upon the strength of the assurance given by the porte to Sir Philip Curris, British ambas sador to Turkey, that the sultan would permit the powers to send into the Bos phorus a second guafdshlp Sir Philip telegraphed to Admiral Seymour, call ing the British Mediterranean squadron, requesting him to dispatch the gunboat Dryad to the Bosphorus also. The Dryad was expected to arrive at Osanakkale at It o’clock on the morning of the 28th, and the porte was so in formed, but no authority to pass through the straits of the Dardanelles had been given up to the time of writing this dis patch. The sultan upon learning this news became greatly disquieted, and at the hour of midnight sent messages to Tewtlk Pasha, the foreign minister, and Said Pasha, the grand vlsler. Sir Philip Currie is now awaiting instructions from Lord Salisbury, and the other foreign diplomats have in the meantime asked their respective governments for instruc . tions. _ The synod of the Greek church in Tur key has refused to committ Itself to an < presslon of satisfaction with the prog ress of affairs in Asia Mlr.or. Turkish troops en route to Zeitun have arrived at Marash, where they halted pending the result of negotiations with Armenians, who are in possession of Zeitun. The conditions offered to the Armenians include the surrender of I heir arms, as well as the leaders of the recent revolt at Zeitun. to the Turkish troops. Trustworthy advices say the rising ol Armenians at Zeitun followed the at tempt on the part of the troops of the Turkish garrison to pillage the city. Ar menian survivors of massacres at Ara blrker, Moosk and Harpoot, these advices say, have been offered the choice of em bracing Islamism or being put to the sword. Americans in Harpoot, Bettlls and Marash are virtually prisoners In their houses. It is not safe for Christians to go into the streets, and the escort which was provided for American mis sionaries by order of the porte upon ap plication of Minister Terrell, is afraid to leave Harpoot on account of dangers they are almost certain to encounter on the roads from murderous bands. No ■mails have passed over the Bagdad rdffte for three weeks. A BECHET CONSISTORY. The Pope Made a Speech Eulogizing the New Cardinals. Rome, Nov. 29—A secret consistory was held at the Vatican today, over which the pope presided. The session ended at noon, when it was announced that his holiness was in fair health and had made a speech of some length eulo gizing the new cardinals whom the con sistory has elevated to the sacred col lege, The prelates elevated to the car dinalate by the consistory were Arch bishop Sembratowicz of Lemberg, Aus * tria; Archbishop Haller of Salzburg, Austria; Archbishop Cascajerez Y. Aza ra, archbishop of Valladolid, Spain; Arch bishop Boyer of Bourges, France; Mon signor Gotti, archbishop of Petra; Arch bishop Satolli, apostolic delegate to the United States; Bishop Cassanas Y. Pages of Seo De Urge], Spain; Bishop Manara of Ancona, Italy, and Bishop Peraud of Autun, France. The pope also recognized twenty-four new Italian bishops. The consistory was especially imposing, be cause of the unusually large number of cardinals present. These were Cardinals Rampolla, Hohenlohe. Paroclechi, Lava letta, Steinhuber, Ledochowskl, Creglia. Bianchi, Mocennl, Merdel, Dangcnieux, Melchers, Gallmberti, Di Pietro, the brothers Vannutelli, Ruggerio, Granlello, Segna and Varga.

The Porte’s Promise Broken. Constantinople, Nov. 29.—Despite the porte's repeated promise to the American minister, Mr. Terrell, the missionaries at Marash were not afforded protection un til eight hours after the second terrible massacre at that place, during which the American -Theological seiftinary was plundered and burned. The missionaries reported on November 26 that they were safe, but since then nothing has been heard of them. The non-arrival of let ters giving details of disorders at Khar pul and Marsovan on November 10 and 13 creates the belief that the mission aries’ mail has been stopped. It is announced from Erzeroum that the government has Instituted a com mission to compel the restitution of their property to the Armenians who were robbed during the disorders there. Some , prominent Armenians are members of" the commission. The government has agreed to the ap pointment of a committee to receive do nations for the relief of the needy Arme nians.

The home Into which the child came i.was a poor one. The cabin was not ’’the picturesque, vine-clad one of the story books,” says a resident of the country, who has followed' in detail the scenes of the president’s early life, "but one standing out in a clearing, with only one small room, a door, but no window, a stick chimney, with open cracks through which swept the winds, the rain, the snows of winter, and the swarms of mos quitoes in summer. * • We take an inventory of the furniture of that cabin: bunks, the mattress of dry leaves, the slab stolls, the open fire place. We note the absence of even the necessities of life—neither stove, window, nor floor.” The only one of Mr. Lincoln’s early ac quaintances now living, Mr. Austin Gol laher, said to a representative of this magazine, in describing the poverty of those early surroundings: “At the time of Abraham’s birth his father was away from home. Some of her neighbors, who were with Mrs. Lin coln at the event, learned that she was destitute of anything In the nature of food. Rome of the ladies called upon Judge William Cessna, one of the most prominent men of that time in this sec tion, In Mrs. Lincoln's behalf, and he donated flour and other articles of food.” The picture Is dark, but fortunately, there are those who remember pleas anter things about it. Christopher Co lumbus Graham, whose statements have already been quoted, says of some of the stories of the poverty in Thomas Lin coln’s family: "It is ail stuff about Tom Lincoln keeping his wife in an open shed in a winter when the wild animals left the woods and stood in the corners next the stlck-anfl-clay chimneys, so as not to freeze to death; or, if climbers, they got on the roof. They had a cow and calf, milk and butter, a good feather bed, for .1 have slept lu It while they took the buffalo robes on the floor, because I was a doctor. They had home-woven ‘ktver llds,’ big and little pots, a loom and wheel; and William Hardesty, who-was there too. can say with me that Tom Lincoln was a man, and took care of his wife.” WZD ing up our recent licit your visit to MORROW & STATE NEWS. | Ozark Banner-Advertiser: The Ozark and Geneva telegraph line Is now com-3 plete and In fine working order. • • • Ozark Star; The creeks and branches ! have about all dried up.

Murphy and F. J. Titus Expelled From All Racing Under L. A. W. Jurisdiction, New York, Nov. 29.—The League of American Wheelmen announces, through Chairman Cldeon of the racing board, that a decision has been arrived at in the charges against the class 13 riders— F. J. Titus of this city, C. M. Murphy of Brooklyn and L. D. Cabanne of St. Louis —which has resulted in their perma nent expulsion for life from all racing under the League of American Wheel men Jurisdiction. Wheelmen, and racing men particular ly, have been intensely interested in the outcome of the eharges made against these riders. While following the National circuit it .cfcme to light during the latter part of Ajugust that Messrs. Titus and Cabanne entered into an agreement with C. A. Murphy at St. Louis on August 24 that Cabanne was to be allowed to win the ojie-mile open race.' •Murphy, while agreeing to permit Ca banne to win, it is alleged, disregarded hjs compact and won the race himself. iThis action so incensed Titus and Ca bhnne that the riders held a stormy in terview over the matter In the dressing r$om. The conversation was overheard and reported to the racing board, which promptly suspended the riders and com menced an investigation into the charge of “fixing" a race, which is in direct vio lation of league rules. The agreement to allow Cabanne to win, It is alleged, was due to his desire to win the event of the day in his native city. The riders protested their Innocence when accused, but after two months’ in ..vestigation and deliberation the racing officials of the League of American Wheelmen arrived at the conclusion that the men had transgressed the league rules, and that an adequate punishment would be permanent suspension. This ruling has caused wild excitement among class B men, and indicates that severe punishment will be meted out to all violators of the League of American Wheelmen rules. The men are debarred from competing In any races in this country. It is very likely that the suspended riders will ap peal to the national assembly for rein statement, but it is the general senti ment that the racing board would not take such extreme measures unless back ed by an abundance of evidence to sus tain Its decision. It Is rumored that the accused riders will seek redress in the courts. San Francisco, Cal., Nov. 27.—Wiliam Welch, who is in charge of League of American Wheelmen matters In Califor nia, today received the following tele gram from Chairman Gideon of the rac ing board: “Murphy permanently suspended. Stop his riding. Next man gets prizes.” This refers to C. M. Murphy, the crack Class B man, now in southern California, and Is the result of the protest filed against him for throwing a race In St. Louis in September. Football Players Fatally Injured.
