SLAY 803,000 ARMENIANS 1,200 000 Men, Women arid Children Starved, Flobbed, Enslaved or Deported by Turks. Tho Hague. One-hnlf, or 800,000, of the Armenian people who ware un der Turkish rule nt the beginning of the war have been slaughtered or starved to death by Turks, according to an Indictment Issued here by sev eral Influentinl Hollanders, among whom nre A. I de Sarornln Lnhnian tho Dutch minister of state, and Dr. Anton van Gyn, formerly Dutch minis ter of finance. In ol!, they assert, the Turks have deported 1,200,000 Armenian men. women and children, robbed them of njl they possessed, massacred the men. carried off tiw women nnd girls to Tur kish harems nnd Kurdish tlHages, sold the children In tho slave market and abandoned the remainder to slow death by stnrTatlon. "This remnant of the Armenian peo ple In Asia Minor," says the stntement of these ne'itrnls, "is a starving beg syaf people, consisting in the muln of old men and women nnd children. The number of children who, aepAratetl (ran their relatives, lie ulong the cara van routes or wnnder about the towns like dogs runs Into tens of thousands. It Is scarcely credible that in the twen tieth century the extermination of al most an entire people under such ter rible circumstances was possible. But entirely trustworthy evidence of neu tral consular officials, of Germun and Swedish missionaries and tenchers Is avnllable and puts the matter beyond all doubt." First Lieut.
