r L greatest interest taken in the
Decision of Chief Justice Merritt in the
receivership case this morning Spec
ulations on this subject and discussion
as to the relative merits of the various
propositions formed the chief topics of
t on ersation on the streets yesterday
among all classes of citizens In fact
I Is felt very generally that this is a
matter of grave concern to all the in
terests of the territory and Salt Lake
In particular and that on this decision
ray rest the degree of prosperity
vhicn the city is to enjoy for the next
frw yfars
I uriously enough though the mat
Cv should rest very little on > public
ontiment in that I is a legal proposi
tion to be settled in the court there
BP nb to b a veil defined effort to cre
t m ravor of two receivers
Where this comes iroin specifically i
I K iiffionli if not almost impossible to
tell Prominent members of the Job
bers association however have taken
tv V opposite view and created sent
intnt in favor of the separate appoint
ment of Mr Egan
Attieipatiiig Trust Company Victory
Jfiitral opinion last evening seemed
t > anticipate a decision in favor of the
American Loan and Trust company
ol ing ji > the stand taken on the pro
pusItr < v < IL3 > ji appoint an additional re
ceiver Iwbrre seems to be no reason to
df ubt that the company will hold to
its decision not to accept the line on
such conditions and if Chief Justice
lUerritt should make the order In such
form it is believed the attorneys would
T ithdraw the suit and eave the mat
ter iust where it is at present
How this action would affect the ap
pointment of Mr Egan as receiver of
the lines north of the Utah boundary
is not known I Is said by those on
the inside however that the Trust
company insists on having all or noth
ing and the most probable outcome in
that event would be the refusal of the
company to pay the interest money on
July 1st and the consequent revocation
of the orders made by Judges Sanborn
and Gilbert They say they could not
do justice to themselves without full
control This would mean the rever
sion o the lines already given to Mr
Egan into the hands of the Union Pa
d rceiverS What action would fol
crtceivers
lofi is difficult to say Some attor
iiiHq believe the Trust company could
then demand a foreclosure of the first
mortgage and sale of the road and
that it would bid it inand run it
Would Relinquish Northern Lines
However there is little doubt that
the northern lines would be given up
bj tha trust company unless it could at
least make connections with the Rio
Grande Western at Ogden and thus
be entirely independent of the Union
Pacific or take the lines further south
The whole proposition would have to
be submitted to the executive commit
fe of the Trust company in New York
It Ms known that Mr Storey who made
t17legal fight here on behalf of the
company and wh han left for New
York already would not advise the
taking of the northern lines and it is
most natural to expect that the com
mittee would b3 guided almost wholly
l v his advice
Taejtvftect of Chief Justice Merritts
deeisHnri therefore is apt to be wide
spread and to be vital to the interests
of the entire region tapped by the con
t ° n jated system
JJoie Wants the Headquarters
Information has been received in
the city that a number of leading men
of Boise are already anticipating that
ti > a decision of the court will be in
favor of Mr Egan and are making
preparations to descend upon him if
he is confirmed with propositions to ef
ftct a settlement of his headquarters
In that city Tt is said also that Ogden
and Pocotello have made some move
ment in that direction meaning that
Fal Lake shall not get the plumTith
out at least an effort Bonuses of good
size amounts are talked about But
all this push and energy will probably
50 to waste
If the Trust company secures the
lines i intends to locate the seat of
F < ernment in Salt Lake city not as a
matter of bonuses but for the simple
reason that Salt Lake combines
the V elements necessary to a
go d sHe for headquarters I given
good service and rates in its favor
instead of in Denvers favor and

S Worth
Fighting F < lr
Th headquarters of the system
however is well worth fighting for If
Sal Lake should get them it would I I
of immense importance to her develop
ment All the general offices would be
Jfjated here of course and of
jrnttd hert curse partic
ular importance would he the great
shops of the system like those of the
Tnicm Pacific now located at Cheyenne
The genera superintendent and the
operating force would also be brought
V here instead of being in Ogden as they I II
are now The headquarters of the au I I
ditor with his good force of clerks j I
would bt here Instead of in Omaha
The treasurer would also be hers and
the rjpney of the system pass
i through hands In Salt Lake city in
<
P tead of Omaha Passenger and
freight agents would also shape their
policy here and have men from all
I parts ofe country tributary to the
13 r road Wining in to talk with them and
make 1 f > city their hea quarter jn
aiild beingr compelled 1 to go on east
cl
L sL
when they wish to see the final au
thorities of the road
Investors Would Conic
Not the least benefit from head
quarters would be the presence here
of the purchasing department which
would have the buying of all articles
I oi use which could be obtained here
The men who would come here to see
the purchasing agent on such business
are among the best kind of commer
cial men and often are large manu
facturers who come personally Many
of these agents are instructed to al
ways report chances for investment to
their home offices and when they see
good in a region are often of great
benefit to it
Would Be Left Here
I the separation should come there
would probably be also additional
freight and passenger offices as i is
believed the present Union Pacific
forces perhaps somewhat reduced
will be retained The Union Pacific
cannot afford to end its line in Ogden
and would probably make some traffic
arrangements with either the Short
Line or the Rio Grande Western for
running trains into the city and
would have to keep its forces in the
field in order to secure business for its
eastward line or i would find all the
traffic being diverted to the Rio
Grande Western Therefore i is not
expected there will be much of a loss
and a great deal of gain to the city
if the present hopes are realized
Raising Idaho Ore Rate
Just in time to furnish the Trust
company representatives with an ar
gument against allowing the Union
Pacific any voice whatever in the af
fairs of V the system comes the an
nouncement chat the latter company
has raised rates on ore from Wood
River district Idaho to Salt Lake
City nearly 3 per ton The effect of
this of course will be to send the ore
to the Denver smelters instead of the
Salt Lake smelters so that the com
pany may have the long haul on the
business The Trust company people
claim that this is the intention of the
company and that this would be its
policy as they claim it has been in
the past to build up the road and the
eastern country at the expense of
Utah and Idaho
They say the appointment of an ad
ditional receiver with equal powers
with Mr Egan would mean that such
conditions would be continued as the
Union Pacific would be kept constantly
Informed of the condition of affairs
on the local system and any attempt
to change would be rendered nugatory
by them through the other receiver
Their claim is that the smelters in
Salt Lake valley will be killed if pos
sible unless a different plan is fol
lowed while they would be made
prosperou with rates in their favor I

Djulfa Russia May 7Copyrighted
1895 by the Associated Press From
the special correspondent of the Associated i
I
sociated Press in ArmeniaThe Turk I
ish government i is claimed has just
taken the preliminary steps in what I
may result in a massacre of Xestorian
I
Christians in the mountains of Kurd
I
istan I is asserted that the govern
ment has given orders to starve the
independent tribes of Xestorians in I
the mountain region immediately west
of Gawar which may be described as I
laying about midway between Mosul
I
and Lake Van about fifty miles west
of the Persian frontier The orders i I
is stated are that no food supplies of
any kind shall be allowed to enter the 1
territory of the independent tribes and I
measures are said to have been taken
to enforce these orders to the letter
This again is apparently taken as a
means of compelling the independent
tribes to submit to the Turkish au
thorities and to pay the taxes de
manded by the government and it is
regarded as the first serious attempt
that the Turks have made to extort
taxes from the independent tribes
From the earliest time in the history
of the Ottoman empire these tribes
have been independent of Turkish rule
They have paid no taxes and they
have acknowledged no allegiance to
the Turkish government The present
course of the government is taken in
some quarters as an indication that
the sultan has set on foot systematic
persecution of the Christians in all
parts of the empire The sultan has
plenty of opportunity for knowing
that the independent Nestorians are
too poor to pay taxes and that many
of them make a living by going down
into the villages of their less
wretchedly poor countrymen and beg
ging These poor creatures according
to the story are to be starved because
they will not share with the sultan of I
Turkey the scraps of bread the refuse
I
bits of meats and the odds and ends
which they obtain toy begging Their
homes are in awilderness of moun
tain peaks and narrow rocky valleys
where nothing will grow except a tuft
of broom corn here and there in the
crevices on the rocks of the mountain
sides and a few stocks of millet in a
casual square yard of soil in the val
leys
leysI is not difficult to forecast the
probable result of the starvation of
this race of beggars should the report
turn out to be correct Driven des
perate by hunger the people will en
deavor to obtain food from Gawar and
other outside districts and there will
be fights with the Turkish troops the
villages will possibly be attacked and
some of the wretched people will be
killed and no man can prophesy where
the persecution will end
I have just returned from a rapid
journey to the Kurdish mountains for
the purpose of investigating the re
port that fourteen villages had been
attacked and devastated by a raid of
Kurds last week The original rumor
had it that the Kurds had massacred
many Christians and had carried off
women and girls to the mountains
After riding < day and night to reach
the scene of the raids I at length ar
rived at the Merguisver valley which
lies like the bottom of a boat beneath
huge mountains covered from base to
summit with almost unbroken expanses
of snow I was in this valley that
the raid took place I found that a
band of Kurds from the mountains
had indeed raided fourteen villages in
this valley but the raid was directed
against other Kurds and not against
I Christians There were a few Nes
torian Christians living in the valley
but they were not molested in any
way
As this was not a race or religious
raid it will probably have little inter
est outside of the valley I regret to
say that Mr Palon the British con
sulate general in Tebriz Persia is
very much in disfavor with the gen
tlemen who are conducting the Ar
menian revolutionary movements In
spite of the fact that Mr Palon has
been collecting evidence of the Sassoun
and Moosh massacre for the use of the
British government the Armenians
looked upon him as a spy They may
go to the length to do him bodily harm
The closing of the caravan routes to
Van has rendered more acute the suf
fering from famine in the devastated
districts near Van The only hope of
relief is now cut off

ill Cuba and Lesser Matters
Washington June 0 Secretary of
State Olney is expected to take the
oath of office tomorrow There will
be no undue haste however on the
part of the new chief of the state de
partment
i Mr Olney has given much close
study to the larger law questions be
fore his department ad it will take
I some time for him to put the work
aside for the new attorneygeneral to
grow into i Mr Olney moreover
is equipped in advance for the duties
of his new office as he has been con
i sulted constantly during the last
year on the various complications
over Venezuela Nicaragua Bering
sea the Wallet case foreign tariff
retaliation the JapanCliinT troubles
Spains conflict with Cuba and the
lesser questions in vhich the United
States has been brought in relation
with the rest of the world The last
year has been unusually fruitful in
foreign complications Some of these
were closed by Mr Gresham or ad
vanced to such a state that they will
not preclude the BritishNicaragua
incident in which the United States
aided toward a settlement the Japan
China treaty of peace which was ef
fected as a result of kindly interven
tion by the United States and the
friction with Hawaii as the result of
the demand for the recall of Minister
ter Thurston The other foreign ques
tions which attracted public atten
tion during Mr Greshams adminis
tration of the department are still
pending
Two Questions
With Great Britain there are two
questions of special importance to be
adjusted viz Those affecting Ber
ing sea and the Venezuela boundary
A Bering sea conference will be held
in Washington in October next Sir
Julian Pauncefote having effected
the preliminary arrangements with
Mr Gresham The purpose is to draft
a new treaty by which the claims of
Canadian sealers for alleged seiz
ures and losses will be submitted to
a commission The conference will
not take up the more important ques
tions of the readjusting the Bering
sea regulations in order to make
them effective This will come later
however and promises to call out a
vigorous legal and diplomatic con
troversy The BritishVenezuela
question is mainly significant in in
volving the Monroe doctrine The
United States has asked Great Brit
ain to arbitrate the question So far
as is known no definite answer has
been given to Ambassador Bayard
who presented the request of this
country But as the British foreign
office has positively declined to con
sider similar requests by Pope Leo
and by the International Arbitration
association i is not doubted that in
due time a declination will come to
the United States I will then re
main for the state department to de
termine to what extent British ag
gression in Venezuela is compatible
v vj u the Monroe doctrine Mr
Gresham had made a special study of
the question regarding I as one of
more importance than any of the for
eign questions under consideration Mr
Olney was called into conference and
for several weeks prior to his selection
for secretary of state he was busy in
v this complicated question
I is probable that a definite issue will
be reached when Ambassador Bayard
sends Great Britains answer With
France the only question of conse
quence pending is as to the Imprison
ment of exConsulGeneral Wailer
Ambassador Eustis has been instructed
to make inquiries with a view to se
curing for Wailer all the rights of an
American citizen abroad including a
trial by a civil court
Germany Austria and Denmark are
having numerous tariff complications
with the United States which threat
ened at one time to bring about rad
I ical retaliation by this country The
readjustment ha proceeded largely
through the state department Ger
many and Denmark continue their ex
clusion of American meats but there
are prospects that a satisfactory set
tlement will be effected The discrim
inating duties involved against the
beet sugars of Germany and Austria
brought on the conflict and Denmark
followed the lead of her influential
neighbors
The Cuban Revolution
The Cuban revolution promises to be
a source of controversy with Spain
Minister Dupuy de Lome has already
asked the state department to appre
hend those sending arms to Cuba and
the suggestion is made that Spain will
make a claim against the United States
based on the precedent of the Alabama
claims Officials are not solicitous
however as to this claim and the in
timation is made that it is Inspired by
British sources out of resentment
for the Alabama decision
Italy and the United States are ex
pected to arrive at a satisfactory set
tlement ere long concerning the mur
der of a number of Italians In Colo
rado I is understood Secretary
Gresham regarded the offenses as such
an Infringement of international rights
that he inaugurated negotiations for
the payment of cash indemnities to tnt
families of the deceased Italians This
step if consummated will be in addi
tion to the steps taken by the authori
ties of Colorado to prosecute the offenders
With Russia
The only subject of consequence
vending with Russia is that concerning
the amelioration of the condition of
the Jews The United States has
taken little part in the Armenian
question which 4s provoking a conflict
V
V V
t
between Turkey and the European
powers f
One of the first acts 11 Olney is
likely to be called upon to perform is
that of reorganizing the new govern
ment of Ecuador which has come into
power after a bloody revolution There
are no pending questions with other
South or Central American countries
except that in which Venezuela is
involved

day afternoon An engine had run
into the tunnel which is 1776 feet
long with a crew of several men to
syphon out an accumulation of water
held in by a dirt cave The ventila
tion of the tunnel is poor and the
ton
smoke and gas from the engine made
the air so stifling that the men soon
prepared to leave As the engine was
backing out a man was discovered y
in across the track and the engineer
reversed running further into the tun
nel where all the men were quickly I
overcome by suffocation Strenuous
efforts were made to rescue the men I

hours no one could enter far enough
to reach the victims I V

solved The British consul just ap
pointed at Bitlis has been instructed to
go to Moosh before the commission
leaves as the Armenians fear a re

Additional reports received indicate
that the Moosh commission dissolve
on Friday so far as the work of the
European delegates is concerned They
were compelled to tell the Turkish
delegates that they could have nothing
more to do with them From the first
the attitude of the Turkish delegates
has been invariably and increasingly
dishonest According to the state
ments of those interested in the work
ings of the commission the reports
of the sultan have not manifested
honor truth or decency They have
made no efforts to determine the cause
of the outrages in Armenia The rup
ture between the Turkish and the Eu
ropean commission was caused by the V
refusal of the Turks on purely farcical
grounds to hear important witnesses
on matters pertaining to questions at
issue I was evident the Turks were
arraid the tissue of falsehoods that
they have thrown around the situation
in Armenia would be broken down
The European commissioners will call
the report of the Turks into question
for purposes of ascertaining whether
the high officials of any state claiming
to be civilized ever have taken the po
sition assumed by the Turks during
the meeting of this commission I is
only fair to say that their every action
has been prompted and sanctioned or
