A TURKISH MASSACRE.
Popmtstlon of XCMtarla. Reported to
H-ve Boon Sla.nsterd.
SOFIA, Bulgaria, Sept 18. The for
eign office here has received reliable in
formation that the Turks have de
destroyed the town of Kastoxia, thirty
six miles south of Monastlr, and have
massacred the population.
, The report of the massacre comes
from sources admitting of little doubt
though the details are lacking. It has
been received with the gravest concern
by the officials here. vv.'.
The population of Kastoria was about
10,000, and the massacre of such a
number in one place, if the report is
true, exceeds anything which has yet
occurred in Macedonia. "At the present
critical moment, when popular feeling
is intense, the effect of the report of
such, stupendous slaughter may be-most
serious..'.'

, LONDON, Sept 18. It is announced
here - that Russia and ; Austria; have

ers which if , carried out will, it is
hoped, restore order-in the Balkans. It
is proposed that Austria and Russia
occupy Macedonia

Now I have an eight room house on

condition.
The lady , who owns . the house on
Central avenue that I have been "ad
vertising at $5,700, came in yesterday
and. told me to put the price up to
$6,009. I asked her to wait for two
weeks, before she did'that She agreed.
The price now is $5,700. On the first
day of October it will be $6,000. The
same thing happened to that Vine
street house I advertised' I offered
it at $4,600,' and no one took it; I of
fered it at $4,800 and I sold it "Wednes
day; the new owner is going to place
it in my hands again and the price will
be $5,000.1 You had better buy this

BISHOP TIBRNEY HOME.
I.TTrudell
PSACTICAL FURRIER, .
South Main St
Took the Waters at 'Carlsbad; But
' Didn't Go to Rome. .
Rt Rev Bishop Tierney ,of the Ro
man OathoMc diocese of Hartford re
turned home from Europe last evening
and was : apparently in excellent
health when seen toy a reporter last
night at the episcopal residence on
Farmington avenue, says the Courant
The bishop said that be had nothing
particular to communicate, as lie went
abroad simply ' for a vacation and for
the benefit of his health; there was
nothing of an official character in his
trip. He and Bishop Hrkins of Prov
idence went abroad together and re
turned together, sailing on the City of
New York on July 8 and sailing from
Liverpool on the Soxonia on Septem
ber ,8. ; Bishop Tleraiey came directly
home and his brother bishop went to
ProvJdence. They took thecoedlcinal
treatment . of the 'waters at : Carlsbad,
the -regular coarse-of treatment which
Bishop Tlemey said, he was satisfied
bad benefited hint, although there was
nothing particular the matter with
him;' he was simply rather tired out
with -the work of the-diocese. iHe lost
ten pounds in weight while away,
which be did not object to, as he had
gained 1 m-och in flesh the past , few
years and felt much better now with
reduced tvoirdmiols. V
Bishop- Tierney said that be did not
go to Rome, nor even 4to Italy, , as be
had nothing to", call him there. They
knew before they left pi&t the boly
father . was very 111 and on the way
over received two or t3ree messages
regarding Pope Leo XIII by the Mar
coni system, through the courtesy : of
the- steamship- officials, who kinly com
municated . the message to , him , and
Bishop Harkias before -bulletining
them on tbe jpteataship. , They were
urns able to get the news first Per
haps hvtwo or' three years he would
make his official trip to Rome, which
e very 'Wshop is required to make ev
ery ten years. Annual reports of the
daocese-were made to thepope, but per
sonal visits were not required oftener
than every ten years, unless specially
ordered. - ' ';;' v.y-V:.V, vv
While abroad, Bishop Tierney . said,
he took the opportutttty to visit places
and institutions . where : young , men
from the diocese were being educated
for the priesthood, in ; France, Ger
many, Austria, Poland and other coun
tries. . Two young men from northern
Italy met him away from there. He
had no business in Rome and specially
avoided going there, as he did not der
sire to get into the crowds. : -v; l
.The reporter asked the bishop if
there was anything in : the rumor
which was afloat whi!e be wad abroad,
and which was xn4radicted, that
there was to be a, division of tne dio
cese. , . T know notiirag aibout it" was
the reply, "I know absolutely nothing
about-dt and -havent veu neard about
it", . The bishop added that although
he. had not power to divide "tire "diocese
himself, it was extremely ; improbable
that anything of that kmd would occur
without his previous knowledge. Pre
vious to 1870,. the diocese of HSurtford
included Rhode Island, which was set
off during the bishopric of Bishop Mc-
Farland. The bishop said he didn't
know of any reason why the present
diocese should be divided, and the
priets in the. diocese , would simply
laugh at the .rumor. He dld not know
from where the ' rumor originated, its
object or indeed anything about it
. "There's no place like home,"" said
the bishop, tand'--I'n jetadT'-Vto. reach
Hartford. I went away' quietly and
came back quietly. I was not expect
ed." here until 8 o'clock this evening,
and came home quietly about 5 oclock,
"I have had ' several priests call on me
this evening, ; was pleased to feee them
and am now getting ready to retire,
and will to-morrow take up again the
work of the diocese, which has not
been neglected during my absence." ;

had fully a half bushel of rags in his

them, as he wore four pairs of trou
