Declares That the Central Authorities at Constantinople Are tho Aathora of tho Fearful Crime Against Humanity Tho Outbreak at Marash What the Mission aries Say Powera Likely to Steam Up the Dardanelles with Shotted Guns. Losdos, Nov. 27. The Times this morn ing publishes a letter written at Erzeronm dated Nov. 9. Tho correspondent says: "The massacre here certainly occurred by order of tho authorities, and this order must have emanated otiginally from the central authorities at Constantinople, Much circumstantial evidence can be pro duced to corrobonYte this statement." The correspondent thon proceeds to repeat a conversation which ho overheard going on between the Turkish soldiers who wero guarding his door. Their statements wero to the effect that their officers had ordered them at a given signal to masszcre the Armenians. The correspondent then con tinues: Cannot Find a Single Christian. "I had been visiting at the British cod sulate with Mr. Chambers Sunday ofter ooon, Nov. 3, when the new outbreak took place. The Armenians again crowded to tho American school. A number were killed on this day, tho estimate ranging from eighteen to thirty-five. Tho scenes in the cemeteries wherc tho victims havo bicn buried by the sufferers have been heartrending.

The Towers Are Growing Weary. A dispatch from Constantinople Tia Soda, jbulgari.-v says with reference to the request of the powers to tho porte for a firman admitting additional gunboats into the Bosphnrus, which the porte is still haggling over: "Nobody hero can see how the powers can retreat from tho position they havo assumed without serious loss of prestige, especially as their demands arc based on treaty rights which are admitted by tho sultan and his ad visers. In some quarters it is said that tho sultan's, ohji-ction to granting the firman is really caused by his belief that ha can do sr with impunity in view of the objection raised by Russia to Austria's proposal on the subject, nnd thnt this con stituted a difference of opinion among the powers. Will Find Himself Mistaken. "A member of tho diplomatic corps to whom this view of tho affair was sub mitted said that if tho sultan actually thought there wasnny material differencjs of opinion among tho powers he woul.1 do well to gi t rid of that belief as soon as pos sible. In fact tho accord between tho powers is declared to bo complete, and no ono who is willing to sec wnTc is going on will be surprised to see the tremendous allied floet now gathered at tho eastern end of tho Mediterranean steaming up tho Dardanelles, permission or no permission, with the decks cleared for action and guns shotted."
