Refusal to Grant Exequatur
to American Consul.
Request KeJrU4 on the Ground That
Harpoot Is Mot a Commtr-
lml rolns.
Constantinople, Nov. 36. The porte
has definitely rejected the request tor
an exequatur for a United States con
sul at Harpoot. This refusal is regard
ed by the United States legation as a
direct violation of the treaty rights,
and, consequently, despite the refusal,
Thomas H. Norton, who was appointed
by President MoKinley some time ago
to establish a consulate at Harpoot,
has been directed to proceed to his
post. The expected visit of the battle
ship Kentucky to Smyrna is believed to
relate quite as much to this matter as
to the indemnity question.

rebel force w.as reported to be engaging
the government troops near Panama.

lon are in a state of terror. The rebels
are attacking in a determined manner,

great before - decisive results are
reached. The liberals, it is asserted
by the passengers of the steamer, still
