The candidacy of Hon. Edward G.
Rogers, of this city, for the United
States senate, indicates a healthy con
dition of the body politic. It is an argu
ment against place-hunting and blindly
yielding positions of trust and honor to
the men of chance and accident. The
West is too much given to allowing men
to purchase their way into places that
should be tilled with statesmen. Too
often persons gain an accidental ad
vantage and are allowed to hold it
simply because of a false sense of honor
tt at says "ho is entitled to another
term." Sectionalism and cliques
cut too much figure in this slate
for her good. There was no
false modesty in the past, when
men of distinction were turned down.
It is time Minnesota should look for her
best men to represent her in the na
tional capital, and especially In the sen
ate, Mr. Rogers has ability of a high
order. He is, by far, the best orator in
the state. He has a reputation as such.
When the St. Paul delegation went to
Washington, three years ago, to ask fur
the national convention for this city,
Mr. Rogers delivered an address, before
the national committee, that was highly
commended as an oratorical effort by
distinguished gentlemen from all parts
of the country. Mr. Rogers is not only
possessed of the requisite ability for the
senate, but he is loyal to St. l'aul and to
the wholt* state.
Objection to selecting a second sena
tor from St. Paul cannot be made, with
any force, when it is considered that
ability and not a time server is what is
wanted in the national capitol. Then
there is abundant precedent. It is not
uncommon for a single city to have both
United Suites senators. It is not a
detriment to a state to select both of its
representatives in the upper branch of
congress from the center of population,
or from a great city like St. Paul. Mr.
Rogers is capable of liJungly represent
ing not only St. Paul, but all the cities
and country districts, and of doing it in
a way that will bring i'amo to this great
A perfect yie is a work of art when

Mr. Gridley, of Duluth, was in the
city last week, trying to interest cap
italists in the Altamonte canal scheme,
which proposes to supply Duluth with
water and water power. Connected
with this, in Mr. (Jridley's proposition,
is a canal scheme which will counect
Duluth with the Twin Cities by way of
the Mississippi river, and which will
furnish them an abundant power. What
merits or demerits there may be in tins
scheme we do tot care to discuss, bat
use it to present another subject for the
consideration of the people of St. Paul.
There is an evident, and, we tliiuK, a
healthy trend of public sentiment to
waras the assumption by municipalities
of such functions as transportation and
lighting now committed to private en~
terprise. Within a year or two the city
of St. Paul will have the question of
purchasing the m plant ana supplying
its citizens with light presented to
it. Not very far in the future looms up
the question of the city taking to itself
thti work of transportation now per
formed by the street railway company.
Lying at the base of any of these
schemes is the question of motive
power. Their success or failure will be
dependent upon the cheapness with
which that can be created. Transform
iug the energy in coal to the energy in
electricity is to us, situated remote from
the coal supply, an expensive operation.
It is in connection with these questions
that the construction of a dam by the
government at the head of Meeker isl
and becomes a subject of interest.
The ostensible purpose of the general
government in erecting this dam la
that of making the river between
here and Minneapolis navigable, and
giving to that city whatever of honor or
profit there may be in the title of being
"the head of navigation" on the Missis
sippi. We never have shared the op
timism of the promoters of this scheme,
and the past experience of the public
and the government in improving navi
gation at this end of the river has
tended to create a suspicion as to the
disinterestedness of the motives of the
persons promoting the appropriation.
There has been in all of it such a
modicum of public utility and pleth
ora ot private benefit that It may well
be suspected whether the desire to have
the river from here to Minneapolis
made navigable is the real purpose of
the parties making that the pretext by
which appropriations are obtained from
the federal treasury.
The government, however, is now
fuliy committed to the scheme, and the
question with St. Paul is whether the
water power created by the dam shall
be monopolized by private individuals
and made to vitld them a handsome
revenue, or whether it shall furnish the
motive power to such public purposes
as the city of St. Paul may decide. The
federal government, having created the
power by the expenditure of public
money, can say how the power thus
created shall be used. If it does not
exercise that right, it is altogether prob
able that the parties owning the adjoin
ing and abutting land will here, as they
have in other instances, appropriate to
themselves the full benefit of the power
thus created. How great that power is
we have no precise information, but
there can be little question that it will
be sufficient to opernte an electric plant
that would supply the city with light.
It might be made to furnish pow*r for
other purposes in addition.
This valuable privilege can be secured
to the public or to the city by a proviso
attached to the appropriation bIH or by
separate act, dedicating the power to
the city of St. Paul for such public use
as it might make of it, conditioned, pos
sibly, upeu its uiAiuleuaucu of a dam.
We susrc*st this matter to Mr. Kiefer as
something of present and immediate
value that is worth his attention, and
we commend it also to the attention of
the Commercial club and the chamber
of commerce. Certain it is that oppor
tunitie* created by the expenditure of
public money should be devoted to pub
lic purposes, instead of being handed
over to privatH enterprise- to be mttd^ a
source of individual profit. There has
been altogether too much of this kind of
jobbery in the past, ttiul it is hi{,'ii time
that a departure were made.
The men and women who cut an idea
of Hie inline 11 bit}' (it this nation of ours
from travel from one to the other side
of it are very few. The vast majority
spend their lives in circles of a few hun
dred miles' radii, ami to whom the scope
of the country and the magnitude of its
interests are the vaguest of impres
To such, ana •yen to the traveled, the
annual report of the postmaster general
gives data by which the mind can get
sora« concept of the size of the nation
and of its business. His department is
in toucii witti every man and woman
and most of the children of the laud.
Then is no hamlet so obscure that it
has not its postofh'ce, nor so remote as
to be beyond the reach of the postman.
Take a postal map of any stale, and its
routes of mail carriage vein it in every
direction. From the fast mail speeding
through the country at thirty miles and
more an hour to the steamboat, the
stage coach, the buckbo&rd, the man on
horseback, down at lust to thti man who
carries tin; mail in a pouch slung over
his back, every day and Bight these
agents are carrying the letters and pa
pers, magazines and bcok.«. between the
people, besides doing a little business
for them in carrying their parcels.
But what does this work amount to;
what is its total. We see it daily under
our eyes, mails coming and going, and
we feel that the aggregate of it must be
something immense—but how immense?
The postmaster general answers these
questions, and they are interesting.
Every day in the year 1,100,000 miles
are gone over by the carriers of mail.
How far is thai? Well, it is more than
forty-four times the distance around
this old earth of ours, and it would
cover two trips to the moon, round trips,
and leave some miles to spare.
Then every day this great department
makes 8,700,000 postage stamps. Put
them lengthwise and they would make
a ribbon longer than from here to La
Crosse, or laid in sheets they would
about cover two acres of ground. Then
there are the postal cards, every day
1.500.000 of them", that would cover half
an acre and leave enough over to plaster
a couple of city lots with, or ribboned,
would be over 150 miles long. Every
day the people of this nation of ours
write and mail 7,400,000 letters, which
means that one person, a:an, woman or
child, out of every eight writes each day
a letter, or every person writes a letter
every eight days. Of course they do not,
but enough write more to make that the
average for all. And Uncle Sam car
ries all these letters for two cents apiece
from anywhere to evtriy where; from the
Everglades of Florida to Port Townsend.
A man needn't be very old to remember
when the same uncle asked 25 cents to
carry a letter 500 miles and didn't fur
nish envelopes to put them in either.
Then, iv spite of the intelligence
needed to cany on such an enormous
correspondence, there are '24.000 people
who every day in the year are either so
careless or so Ignorant as to inscribe the
address on the letters so badly that no
fellow can make out where they are go
ing to, and so they go to the dead letter
branch of this great business depart
ment, where clerks open them: and, if
the writer's name is given, start the
letter back to the sender. They call
these letters "nondescripts," and it
isn't a bad name for them. In addition,
Uncle Sam undertakes the transfer of
money from one to another of his peo
ple, and he has built up a very respecta
ble exchange business, handling iv this
way ?1,100,000 every day.
And how much does all this work
cost the people for whom it is done? It
takes Sriol.OOO evury night to pay off the
expenses or the day. Bui all this work
costs more every year than is received,
and Uncle Saui has to no down in his
pocket and take out tour or five and
some times more million dollars to
square the account. Last year it took
S'JO.oOO.OOO to pay the expenses of this
one department. But it is a big busi
ness, and it is a very bite nation of peo
ple that renders necessary for the
caniage of its correspondence and news
so big a business.
Pastry more than politics interets the
women. They know the best is made
with Dr. Price's Baking Powder.

A Correspondent Makes Some
Suggestions Anent the Sunday
Globe Symposium.
To the Editor of the Globe.
St. Anthony Park. Minn., Nov. 25.
18(J4.—1 read with much interest the
letters on "How to Accomplish Munici
pal Reform" In Sunday morning's
Globe, and heartily agree with some
of the suggestions made, especially
those by Hon. William B. Dean, recom
mending home rule for cities, propor
tional representation and cumulative
voting. The legislature should have
nothing to do with the government of a
city. The charter should be framed by
a charter convention electad by the peo
ple under a system of proportional rep
resentation and cumulative voting. It
should be resubmitted to the people for
their adoption or rejection, and they
should adopt or reject each article of
the charter separately.
But 1 took up my pen especially to
protest against one of the recommenda
tions of George L. Farwell. After de
nouncing our system of special assess
ment' for street work, etc., he declares
*'a general tax ought to be levied every
year to coyer all such improvements as
street paving, sidewalks, sewers, public
parks, etc., and their maintenance. I
most emphatically object. My neighbors
and 1 have been assessed to pay for our
street grading, sidewalks, curb and gut
ter, water mains, public park, on which
1 own 100 feet frontage, and we should
kick most vigorously a change that
would subject our property to assess
ment to build these improvements for
other property owners who have not
contributed one cent for ours.
In another place Mr. FarweH asks:
"Why should a citizen be compelled to
pay tor the paving of a street or the
laying of a sewer in front of his prop
erty, which is of just as much benelit to
every citizen as it is to him?" It is not
of the same benefit to other citizens as
to him. All the cash benefit of a good
street accrues to the adjoining property
owner. If he sells his property, he sells
that improvement with it. If he lease,
be gets higher rent. Take the street
with its improvements away from the
front of iMr. Farwell's property and
what would that property b* worth? He
would be very glad to pay for the im
provements rather than not have them.
"But," Mr. FarweH might reply,
"everybody uses that street: therefore
everybody should help pay for it."
Not at all. The use of the street in that
sense is open to all equally. Mr. Far
well trets just as much advantage from
the free use of the street as any other
citizen. But, in addition to this ad*
vantage, he gets all the advantage that
can be capitalized and sold or rented
out; no other citizen cets any of that.
Hence the justice of the system that
has been sustained by the highest court
of every state in the Union, that the
benefited property owner should be as
sessed to the full extent ot the benefit,
if necessary, and not a cent taken out of
general taxes. If assessments exceed
benefits the courts will not sustain
them. When we further consider tnat
none of these improvements can be
made without the petition of a majority
of the benefited frontage owners. Mr.
Farwell's demand seems still more un
fair. Any such chance how would
simply subject us, who have paid for
our improvements, to be taxed to pay
for improvements to boom outlying
real estate, while the benefited owners
of that real estate would chuckle over
their great good fortune aud our stu
pidity. Yours, for justice,

A week of grand opera was inaugur
ated last evening nt the Metropolitan
opera house by the Marie Tavary (irand
Opera company, as the organization
styles itself. Verdi's imperishable
••II Trovatore'' was the selection for the
opening performance. It proved an
auspicious selection, for the company
gavtt an admirable interpretation of an
opera whose music is for all time and
all ears. There ate operas of a grander,
weightier character, mure elaborate and
spectacular in style, richwr in color and
uicliestration. but assuredly none will
lake the piace of '"II Trovatore." with
its geius of sweet and spirited melody,
so dear to every ear.

as they sjJehl he. Her Leonora is un
questionably an effective performance
which improves and grows upon one as
tiie character develops, until, in the
final scene, the prima donna gives evi
dence of unexpected histrionic powers.
Miiic. Tavary received lengthy applause
at the conclusion of all her numbers,
and deservedly so, for she sans them
with exquisite tiuiah, expression and
power.ln addition to her vocal and histri
onic endowments, she is favored with a
fine presence.
A. L. Guille, the tenor, needs no in
troduction in the Northwest. He might
be described as little in stature but big
in voice. His is a phenomenal tenor,
pure, resonant and even in quality, and
possessing much strength and volume,
(luille is not restricted to one or two
high notes, as tunny of our tenors
are. There is music iv every
tone of his voice. He never
resorts to the falsetto to reach notes
beyond his natural register. He scored
his triumph last evening when he sang
the. "Di Quella Pyra." It was a brill
iant performance, well worthy of the
cheers and applause showered upon the
aiUst as tlie echo of his clear, rin-ririfr
high C resounded through the house.
Mr. (Juille's sinning ot the "A si ben
Mio" was another piece of artistic work,
distinguished by delicate aud express
ive phrasing.
As effective an impersonation, dra
matically and vocally, as Helen you

Mine. Doenhoff Is an actress of far more
than ordinary attainments. She pos
sesses powers of facial expression
rarely seen in vocalists, or, at least,
seldom utilized with effect wheu
singing. She acts w:th a lire
and an intensity that impress
the spectator with a sense of their
reality, instead of reminding him that
the artist is only following the stage
business. Mine. Doenhoff is also gifted
with a powerful, fine contralto voice,
which is distinguished for its pio
nounced dramatic quality, and which
she employs with line effect in the
scenes of passion aud rage.

baritone, was a sufficiently dignified
Count di Luna. He is the possessor of
a remarkably powerful voice, which he
has under perfect control. He received
a merited encore for his "II Balen."

A Plain, Practical Talk on "G>* d's
Presence in Thi9 World."
Chicago News.
Central Music hall was thronged yes
tprday morning to hear the sermon ot
the Key. Samueal G. Smith, pastor of
he People's church of St. Paul. Dr.
Smith has a pleasing pulpit address, his
voice is musical and he speaks with
great clearness and eletrance. Though
he is not in the accepted sense of the
word an orator, he is an earnest and
convincing speaker. His sermon yes
terday was a plain, practical talk. He
takes a broad view of religion and has
little patience with narrow theologians
or restricted creeds.
Dr. Smith's subject was, 'God's
Presence in This World,'' and he took
ror his text: "Surely the Lord is in
this place, and 1 knevfl it not." He
said,in part
"The whole human race is on the
march, and we do not perceive it. From
the innocence of childhood to the end
of life this march goes on. Soon we
shall die and pass away, but at present
we live. The great question which con
fronts us is what religion has in store
for us now. That it will prepare us tor
another world many preach, but I come
to preach that God is here with us now,
and that His wisdom and love are as
truly oars in this as in any world. What
would you thing of a father who left his
baby boy to the cruel mercies of a
heartless world, and when, by struggle
and siow attainment, be had reached
the age of young manhood, should come
to him and tell him that he was his
father, and that he intended to take him
into his own mansion to live for the rest
of his life? What would be the emotions
of the child in coming into his new re
lations? This Is the picture of an im
possible society, and is also the counter
part of an impossible religion. This
world could not exist for a moment by
itself, and the idea of a dependent
world necessarily carries with it, the
idea ef a God on whom to depend.
"The validity of religion can be tested
only by its effect on the morality of the
world. What it will do for us in the
future is on« question, but what it is
doing for us now is the great one. We
are not inspired by the tact that all
humanity clusters around God, but
what an inspiration it is to feel that our
sorrows are His sorrows, and that He
is human in His sympathies! I believe
that God is in the world today, and that
those who are pure in heart do bee
Dr. Smith was born In England in
1849, but received his education in the
United States. In 1888 he became dis
satisfied with the Methodist doctrines
and practices and sought to establish a
church of his own with a broader mid
oioro liberal creed than couid be found
in any of the larger church organiza
tions. The result was the People's
church, of which he is now pastor. He
is looked upon as the possible successor

The South and Silver-The In

Special to the (ilobe.
Washington-, Nov. 20.—The friends
of Congressman Tawney. of the First
district, are quite confident that when
the time approaches for the Republican
legislative caucus he will be found in
the race. Durlnjr the last session of
congress the relations of Senator YVasu
buivi and Mr. Tawuey were decidedly
strained, largely because or the fact
that the latter refused to declare him
self favorably toward the Minneapolis
man in his contest for a re-election.
This was regarded almost as a declara
tion of war by the Wash burn men for
the reason that in the Davis fur lit it was
generally understood that when the
Winoua man wanted to try for the sen
ate he would have the support of the
Davis men.
The fact that after Jan. 1 Southern
Minnesota will have little, as far as
state" offices are concerned, while she
always furnishes a great deal la the
way of party majorities, will help the
Attpirations ol" Tauney.
The distribution of the state offices,
as made by the late election, is decid
edly unfair. Northern Miunesota has
the governor, auditor, and really the
treasurer; St. Paul has the attorney
general, Childs, the clerk of the su
preme court, and the adjoining county
of Clusago the secretary of slate, while
Minneapolis will have the lieutenant
governor. The First district will
have Judge Start, and the Republic
an Second district only the Democratic
justice of the supreme court, Hon.
Daniel Buck. Tiie same dispro
portion holds in the disposition of the
minor places. Minneapolis has a host
of these in the shape of grain inspectors
and weighers, and St. Paul has never
been neglected around the state capital.
But Southern Minnesota is uot in it and
has not been for some time.
Lnder the circumstances it is small
wonder that the Washburn managers
for more than a year past have been
looking on Congressman Tawiu'y with
suspicion and secretly endeavoring to
break down his influence.
Heatu olr and t atterherrin<r.
The Washington Post it waiting for a
roll call of the next house with the an
ticipation of a good deal of amusement.
In a recent issue it discusses two of the
new members as follows:
Probably the most striking name
which will adorn the roll of the Fifty
fourth congress is the mellifluous cog
nomen of a representative from Wis
consin, Mr. Sauerherring. The gentle
man is an American citizen of German
lineage, and, according to Chairman
Babcock. who knows him well, there is
nothing the. matter with Mr. £auertier
rimr except his name. He is not respon
sible for his name, which, in the words
of Juiiet, is no part of him, and
which in the course of a little practice
by the reading clerk will, no doubt, re
sound through the halls of congress
with as much rhythmic melody as that
of Mr. lieatwole, or a score of other
names more or less calculated to afflict
the human tongue with louatuotor ataxia,
It is, therefore, as a novelty only that
Mr. Sauerherring will for a little while
attract the attention of 356 members of
the house to himself and tempt the
spirit ot levity which slumbers in the
boson of some writers for the press.
Judging by Mr. Babcock's enthusiastic
encomiums of Mr. Saueiherring, the
Wisconsin member is probably destiued
to carry that name to tame.
Smith I* Interested.
Congressman Baldwin ha 3 not been
idle for a minute since lie returned,
and, as a result, he has already enlisted
the active support of the secretary of
the interior in his plan for the early
opening of the Red Lake Indian reser
vation. Ai a conference which h* had
with Secretary Hoke Smith the other
day he showed the importance of early
action to the Indians, the state and par
ticularly all .Northern Minnesota, and
before he left the secretary slated that
he would not only aid him in every way
in his power, but, more than this,"make
special mention of tlia matter in his
forthcoming annual report.
The attitude of tho secretary ot the
interior will render the position of Sen
ator Davis in opposition to theChippe
wa bill or Maj. Baldwin untenable, and
it Will De interesting to notice the next
move made by the St. Paul senator.
His pretended solicitude tor the state's
school lands will vanish of necessity
when the secretary of the interior de
clares for the government that these
lands will be given to the state under
the central law governing the disposi
sition of the public lands, in spite of the
carelessness of Gov. Nelson in failing
to make this matter clear when he drew
the Nelson bill. That Senator Davis
will fight the opening of the Red lake
country on some line there seems to be
no doubt. The excuse he will give next
will be interesting, however, and it will
be as flimsy as the first.
"Wait." Says Reed.
The speech of Czar Reed before the
Home Market club, of Boston, has had
the effect of stirring up the radicals and
the followers of McKinley. These ele
ments are opposed to the policy advo
cated by Mr. Reed, and especially to
that portion of the czar's speech where
in he admits that the hard times caused
"some irrational voting." The differ
ence between Reed and McKinley is
shown very clearly by the references
to the panic made by the two. When
the Ohio man made a speech during the
last campaign he talked of little besides
the hard times, the blame for which he
boldly and absurdly charged up to the
Democratic administration.
At the elections demonstrated, this
was "a good enough Morgan" for the
titnt. but Tom Heed is too big a man to
think that Arguments of this nature will
last until November, 181H>. He knows,
too. that however the Republican ma
jority in the next congress may strug
gle, no tariff bill can become a law, and,
in case one is prepared, as the followers
of McKinley advocate, the business in
terests the country over, and particu
larly the manufacturers of New E:ig
iaud, will not submit to another period
of doubt and uncertainty without enter
ing a protest. Besides all this, Mr.
Heed knows, or. rather anticipates, that
before December, 15(.»3, when the next
congress meets, the Democratic tariff
wili be working satisfactorily to the
The Opposing, Elements.
"Let us rest for the next two years"
is the Reed programme, and there is uo
reason to doubt that it Is a stronger
plan than the McKinley demand tor an
immediate reopening of the tariff ques
tion. But the accidents who will be so
numerous in the Fifty-fourth conirreas
will be found in opposition to the big
and braiuy man from Maiue. This may
not develop in a contest for the speaker
ship, for the reason that the opposition
may think that it will be a good plan to
have Mr. R«ed assume the responsibil
ities of that position, and then, again, it
would take some very fine figuring to
defeat the Maine man.
The Democratic leaders are looking on
this contest with the greatest interest,
because it means much to their party.

The Income ax.
Preparations for the collection or the
income tax are about completed, ana
after Jan. 1 the work of administering
the new law will be commenced. It is
now predicted that the. corporations of
the country will contribute nearly £40,
--000,000 annually to the support of the
government under this act, instead of
about half this amount, as was at first
Although the Republicans in congress
wjKie opposed to this feature of the
revenue bill they tailed to denounce it
in their platforms both East and West,
and refused to condemn it on the slump
even in Massachusetts; and now. while
they are talking about a new tariff law,
they are strangely silent on tie income
tax. They realize that tie people when
this act commences to roll a golden tide
into the national treasury will be
*trong!y in favor of its retention on the
statute book*, and they do not Diopuse
to be caught on the wrong side of the
'Lite South and Stiver.
The free silver men are beginning to
see that the president and sound money
are going to win in the South as against
silver and inflation; and, consequently,
there is much le.-s talk of a eoinuinalion
between the cotton and silver states
than there was a few short months ago.
The peoplo of the South have never
been sr. seriously affected by tiie silver
craze as their leaders in coneress nave
indicated, and in the late election tney
showed this pretty conclusively. The
inflationists have c th**r beeu retired,
like Bland, 01 Missouri, Snodgrass, ot
Tennessee. Deusoii, of Alabama, or re
turned by reduced majorities. The
Southern Democrats have confidence in
(jiover Cleveland and John G. Carlisle,
and believe that they will be able to
bring prosperity out of the ruin
wrought by McKuileyistn. and they re
fused 111 many cases to hHjj tend men
locongress who would tiichttiie admin
istration under the guise ot Democrats.
A year hence, when Secretary Car
lislH will be paying off the government
bonds tnat remain as a relic of war
times out of the revenues contributed
out of the Democratic tariff act, the peo
ple will beiiin to appreciate the work of
tbe baro-worting, patient man who is
conducting the treasury department
safely through one of the must trying
periods in its history. That gold has
not pone to a premium and tiie condi
tions become a great deal worse are en
tirely due to the skill of Secretary Car
lisle: aud, while it is too much to ex
pect that the Republicans under their
dishonest leadership will give him the
credit due, when the full results are
seen the people of the couutry will do
so cheerfully and heartily.

Threatened Naval Demonstration
Ayaiu.st Brazil Kxplained.
Washington. Nov. 26.—Nothing is
known officially here of tiie report of
trouble between Italy and Brazil, which
is said to have reached a phase so acute
that Italy has threatened to send a iieet
of war vessels to Brazil to enforce her
demands. But it is known from unoffi
cial sources that the two governments
have b^en at odds for nearly a year,
owing to a demand made oy the Italian
government for indemnity for the mal
treatment of a number of Italian sub
jects and the destruction of their prop
er tv in the course of riots in Rio. As
nearly as can be gathered Brazil lias ad
mitted some decree of accountability.
and the question at issue is one of
amount ot indemnity rattier than of
principle. This is not the first
time in the course of negotiations
that Italy is reported to have threat
ened a naval demonstration, and it is
assumed that the threat is renewed at
this ti Hie owing to a belief that Brazil
is in a disturbed condition as a result of
tiie change in the presidency, and that
the new government may be mure easily
influenced to any step to preserve the
country from outward attack. But,
from the last reports, the new Brazilian
government is in much better ptsition
to resist any unjust, demand than has
been generally supposed. The Brazil
ian minister here. Senor liendonca, has
just received a cablegram from the min
ister of foreign affairs at Rio statins
that the new administration nnds itself
strong in the support it is receiving
from all of the stales of the Union, and
is entirely able to suppress any attempt
against the republic under whieb, for
tunately, exists lather in the imagina

over the recent treatment of Armenians
by reDtcs-iitatieves of the Turkish srov

many representative citizens as well as
leading clergymen of Boston. Rev. J.

The resolution adopted recites that,
whereas, it was lha report of an Amer

convinced Air. Gladstone of the truth of
the Bulgarian atrocities, the meeting
"do earnestly petition his excellency,

at Constantinople to investigate this
matter either by wading to the spot
such persons as he may see fit, or
by joining in a commission by

olutions proceed with an appeal to the
signatory powers, and especially Great
Britain, tor the immediate enforcement
of the sixty-first article of the treat? of

dresses and the reading or letters, the
chief speaker of the ereniatr, William

Bosto.v. Mass.. Nov. 20.- Further In
formation as to the massacre of the Ar
menians near Biilas. Turkey, has been
received by Secretary (luilsou, of the
I mted Friends of Armenia. One letter
dated Bitlas. Sept. 26, 1894, gives the
inf. rmation that news has been received
from the region back of Moosn that
forty-eight villages are said to have
been wholly blotted out.
Another letter, dated Bitlas, Oct. 3.
18M.statefl that the day previous a leltt-r
from Moosli had been received, which
told of the outbreak of a virulent form
of cholera, which was killing from
twenty-five to thirty-five persons daily.
It is caused, it is said, by the stench of
carnage which has taken place not far
hack in tire mountains. The number of
massacred will r*-ach between 8,000 and
10.000. The government tried to get
the people here to sian a petition to th«
sovereign axpressing satisfaction with
his rule.aud disclaiming sympathy wiih
the Armenians who have "stirred mat
ters up."' The people have refused to
sign tlie address.
Another letter, dated Constantinople.
Oct. 31. 1894. states that from informa
tion received from Bitlas, twenty-seven
villages have been annihilated in Sas
soum. and 6,ooomen, women and chil
dren have been massacred oy the troop?
aud Kurds. The massacre occurred in
the early part of .September. The mas
sacre was the result of an affray be
tween some Kurds and Armenian vil
lagers from whom the Kurds had stolen
their flocks. The sultan ordered in
fantry aud cavalry to the scene to put
down the Armenian rebellion.

Constantinople, Nov. 26.— re
cent edict calling fur the seizure at the
frontier of foreign newspapers contain
ing accounts of the Armenian massacre
prohibits the entry of every American
newspaper into Turkey. This action
011 the part of the Turkish government
is supposed to be due to the attitude as
sumed by the American press on the
Armenian Question.
Washington. Nov. 26.— The edict
permanently excluding ail American
newspapers from Turkey, as announced
from Constantinople, has not yet been
officially communicated to the Turkish
iteration here. Secretary Norigbian Ef
fendl is in charge of the legation during
the absence of Minister Movroyeni Bey.
Mr. Norinhiau expressed surprise that
tiitj edict should have sut-Ji scope a* tc
be a permanent exclusion to the Amer
ican press, and he thinks the report
may prove overdrawn in this respect.
There is a press censorship in Turkey.lie
says, similar to that conducted in most
European countries. A press bureau is
maintained by the government for the
purpose of reading all papeia and see
ms that the press laws are observed.
There are daily papers at Constanti
nople and elsewhere through Turkey
conducted in accordance with the press
laws, which are designed to give the
government proper protection against
internal assaults. Mr. Noriguiau says
such laws and censorship are coma.oll
throughout Europe, ana are in marked
contrast with the iack of supervision
and censorship in the United States.
Supt. Brooks, of Hie foreign mail
service, says that it is an agreement by
all nations in the universal postal union
that aoj nation can exclude any mail
which the government deems detri
mental to its interest.
At the state department no question
is raised as to tuts authority of the Turk
ish government to take the action indi
cate i. Nearly every European power
has asserted and exercised such au
thority in the past. France has freely
availed of, it, and it is a well known
fact that the Russian government exer
cises a most rigid censorship over; the
admission into Russia, not only of for
eign newspapers, but of magazines and
books. The latter are not always with
held from the persons to whom they are
addressed, but it is often found by them
upon opening the volume that para
graphs and paires and whole chapters
are obliterated by the dense black can
celing seal of the Russian tensors,
borne of the leading American maga
zines have suffered severely in this
way. when their articles were judged to
embody anarchistic or socialistic doct
rines, and in ono case an order was
passed excluding for aii time one of our
largest ".magazines from Russia. Al
though this arbitrary action caused
much complaint, however, our govern
ment was unable to lodge even a protest
against the exclusion, an well defined
t*e right of any power to control the
admission of printed luatter^viihiu its
In the case of Turkey the reason for
the order of exclusion is doubtless to be
found in the fact that the American pa
pers at present abound with lung arti
cles descriptive of the outrages alleged
to have been perpetrated upon the Ar
menians, and reports of mass meetings
hold by the active Armenian agents In
the United States to protest against
these atrocities. The Turkish govern
ment is properly apprehensive that the
free circulation of such literature in the
disaffected provinces may stir up an
open rebellion, the outcome of which,
in the present temper of Europe, it
would be difficult to forecast, So far as
the Armenians themselves are con
cerned, our government can do nothing
for them, no matter how much disposed
it may in* to alleviate the fortunes of
these native Christians.
The great European powers are bound
by treaty to protect them, and tiny will
unquestionably strongly resent inter
ference by the United States in the line
of suggestions as to their duly in tlu
matter. So the resolutions which are
being directed to the president by sym
pathetic mass meetings hold In various
Cities are likely to be of no avail, save
perhaps to direct the attention of the
civilized world to the miserable state or
the Armenian*, though it is just possi
ble that congress, as it did in the case of
th« Russian Jew. may pass a resolution
requesting the president to appeal to
the treaty powers to intervene in Ar
North'ivo.sieriiets at the Capital.
