FOREIGN NEWS.
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. Cardinal Perslco, sec
retary-general of the propaganda, was
absent on account of illness. The grand
master of ceremonies announced that the
pope would confer the red hat upon the
new cardinals at the next public consis
tory- The proceedings of the consistory
-lasted only half an hour owing to the
pope becoming somewhat weak from fa
tigue.
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 Pope’s Health.
London, Nov. 29.—The Standard will
tomorrow publish a dispatch from Home
saying that the pope was somewhat ex
hausted towards the end of the consist
ory, which lasted nearly two hours. Dr.
Lapponl, his physician, ordered him to
take some cordial. The pontiff's spirits
were not impaired, nnd he asked smiling
ly of Cardinal Rampolla, the papal sec
retary of state: “Who knows who will
preside at the next consistory?”

Resigned to Fight a Duel.
Budapest, Nov. 29.—In the lower house
of the Hungarian diet today Herr An
dreisky reproached Herr Von Pertczel,
minister of the interior, for assisting in
electoral abuses. In replying to the
charges made against him the minister
said that the accusation was insolent
and used language that was offensive to
Herr Andreisky and the house. The
president of the chamber finally inter
vened and called the minister to order.
AWr the sitting Herr Andreisky sent
to Herr Von Pertczel a challenge to fight
a duel, which was accepted, he, Pertczel,
temporarily resigning his ministerial
post in order to be able to meet his ad
versary on the field of honor.

cialist leader In the German relchstag.

The Powers United.
London. Nov. 29.—The Standard will
tomorrow publish a dispatch from Vi
enna saying that the powers, which a
day or two ago were not unanimous on
the Turkish question, have fallen into

from. The lesson will not be lost on the
powers.

Lincoln’s Boyhood in Kentucky
McClure’s Magazine.
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.”

SINNIGE’S
CYCLISTS RULED OFF.
L D. Cabanne, C. M. 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.
