MARSEILLES , Sept. 29. There exists a
condition of affairs In this city at present
which seems to bo a disgrace to Europe
nnd the Armenian associations generally
throughout the world.
Subsisting upon government , municipal or
rrlvnto charity here are DOO unfortunate
Armenians , men , women and children ,
joung nnd old , healthy and sick , who have
succeeded In escaping from the bloody mas
sacres nt Constantinople nnd who were ono
nnd nil buojcd by the hope , on landing
here , of being able eventually to reach the
land of freedom the United States But
wccliB have already elapsed nnd nothing
definite appears to have been done for
their rel'cf ' , much less toward finding them
homes , by any of the many associations
for the relief of suffering Armenians which
have been orgnnlrcd In England or Amer
ica. These- unfortunates , however , seem to
be the very class 'a which the hand of
charity should be first pxtesi.d. They nre
homeless , nearly penniless , many are en
during the pangs of hunger , and > ct no
body seems willing to step In mid guide
this band of refugees to some place where
Y they can be ln life anew and under moro
piomlslng circumstances.
j Largo amounts ot money have been lalsed
In the past for the destitute Armenians In
Aimcnln , but the sltuttion ot the latter
\f \ Is not a whit worse than that of the halt
starving people here , If as bad. The Ar
menians in Armenia certainly had their
co-rcltglons and fellow country to fall back
upon : the poor people hero seem to have
no friends In the wide world , yet they are
as honest and Industrious n class as can
bo found on the shores of the Mediterra
nean. Some South American specula
tors , It Is true , taking advantage of
this deplorable situation , have pre
vailed upon 300 others ot the Armenians
to allow themselves to be transported to
Argentine Republic , there In all probability
to meet the fate of thousands of the Hebrews
of Russia , who , thanks to the philanthropy
of the late Baron Hlrsch , emigrated to South
America , only to find themselves , figuratively
speaking , tossed from the filing pan Into
the flre. It Is true that the climate of
Argentine Is said to ho more healthy than
that ot the regions that the poor Hebrews
tried to settle In , but the end Is likely to
be the tame In the case of the Armenian
refugees , vvho nre not a class ot people
likely to thrive In roughly founded colonies.
EIGHTEEN HAVE COME.
Oqly about eighteen or the SOO Armenians
vvho reached here have as yet been able to
stait for the United States. These few
emigrants are of the better class of Ar-
menlans. The'y nre fairly well supplied
with funds and will probably start for New
York via Southampton. But what is to be
come ot the remaining unfortunate Chris
tians fleeing from the bloodstained Turks ,
vvho are living on charity here with their
eyes turned longingly toward the United
States ? It would seem that these poor
people may be barred from reaching the
United States and they may be forbidden to
land there , even If they succeed in obtain
ing transportation to thu shores of North
America. Surely , If ever there was a case
In which Iron rules , necessary no doubt ,
might bo relaxed , It Is In the case of thchc
stricken people , flying from the persecutions
and butcheries that have prevailed In their
own lands. There Is material here for the
foundation of a strong Aimenlan colony and
It would appear that there must be some
spot on earth where these victims of the
bloodthlrstlncss nnd mlsgov eminent of
Abdul Hamld , sultan of Turkey , who , nc-
r cordlng to generally , credited reports , must
have caused the massacre of some 50,000
Christians during the last few years , can
cam an ronest living.
WASHINGTON. Sept. 29. The attention
ot Commissioner Stump of the emigrant
bureau was called to the movement look
ing to the colonization In this country ot
Armenian refugees. Mr. Stump said that
Secretary Carlisle and himself had been
fully Informed of such a movement and va
rious appeals had been made from Lady
Henry Somerset and from Miss Francis \Vil-
lard and English and American ic-llef as
sociations asking for the co-operation of the
government In furnishing these stricken
people an asvlum In the United States , but ,
while the sympathies of all good people
must bo aroused In their behalf , the ofn-
cers of the government must endorse the
lav.s as they exist. The matter was being
Investigated and If any lawful means could
bo found they would bo exercised In behalf
of the refugees. The law on the subject ,
however , strictly Inhibits the landing In this
country of all persons likely to become u
public charge and also "any perbon whoso
ticket or passage Is paid for with money
of another or who Is assisted by others to
come. "
SYMPATHIES DON'T GO.
Lady Henry Somerset , It Is understood ,
was Inquiring whether bonds would be re
ceived that those Armenians will not be
come public charges and a reply has been
sent stating that thu department cannot ac
cept bonds except under special circum
stances and after thorough Investigation ot
each Individual case. Mr. Stump said that
ho was In full sympathy with the movement
looking to the relief to the Armenian refu
gees , but "sympathies cannot bo allowed
to Interfere with a strict enforcement of the
law. "
This being the case , although Mr. Stump
did not so state , It seems altogether prob-
nblo that the law necessarily was fouiui to
bo an Insurmountable obstacle In the way
of relief In the manner proposed ,
NEW YORK , Sept. 2 . Officials of the
Armenian societies In this city do not be-
llcvo that the United States will bo any
less hospitable In receiving emigrant Ar
menians than the countries of Europu
which receive them with open arms. J , J.
Rooney , secretary of the Phllarmcnlan as
sociation of Now York and chairman of
the executive committee , said today : "I
don't hellovo there will bo any trouble
about the landing of the Armenian refugees
In this country on account of the Immigra
tion laws. They are by no means paupers ,
AH n matter of fact , the Armenians nre n
vciy Industrious race and I doubt greatly
If the Marbclllcs refugees. In all their dis
tress , could bo classified as paupers. If
the Marseilles refugees should decide to
come hero I am quite sure that they would
not bo barred out for any reason. A largo
number of Armenian refugees have corao
here In the last jear or two , chiefly from
the interior districts , and these had no
difficulty In landing. The Armenians In
this country , of whom there are about 1C-
'OOU. many of them being In the west , make
U a point to help their unfortunate coun-
triroeu. "

preceded the meeting , which taxed tbo ca
pacity ot the largest hall In the city. The

ter uorth of Ohio , who for two hours kept
the Immense audience In a state of enthusi
asm by his eloquent discussion of the cur-
icnt political ISSUCB. Mr. Butterworth de
voted a portion of his time to the tariff
question and showed clearly how vital to
the Interests of Wjomlng was a readjust
ment of the tariff on the lines In force prior
to the present administration. In discussing
thu financial question Mr Butterworth dp
clarcd himself a blmctnlllst and argued that
an adoption of Bryan's free coinage Ideas

habilitation of silver. The meeting was a
succebs In every particular and Indicates
the usual republican victory in this county.

division entirely by surprise , the1 first In
timation received being the stoppage of all
train service from here to North Demi.
Every operator , except one at Port Moody ,
went out. The assistant superintendent here
has , however , undertaken the duties of dis
patcher and succeeded In getting the At
lantic express out shoitly after ached lie

for In their contracts The operators claim
that the train dispatchers arc with them
PROUIA , Sept. 29. It Is stated nt the
headquarters of the railroad telegraphers
In this city that the primary cause of the
trouble is that the ofilcials undertook to
coerce the train dispatchers into withdraw
ing from the order , threatening them with
discharge unless they did. This was done
tineo months ago and the order has not
been rescinded. Since then , however , rot
one has withdrawn from the order and not
ono has been discharged because he be
longed to It. All the time the order has
been working to get the matter adjusted.

ST. LOUIS , Sept. 29. The Interstate Com
merce committee continued Its Investiga
tion of alleged unfair discrepancies between
caiload and less than carload rates on
freight to Texas common points today.
C. A. Parker , tratllc manager ot the Mis
souri Pacific and Iron Mountain roads , was
the first witness. Ho testified that the ac
tual effect of the existing difference in
rates was to stimulate carload shipments
and to discourage less than carload ship
ments. He thought there was no bpcclfic
purpose In making less than carload rates
as high as they wcro at present. Ho thought
'tho rates were maintained because no pres-
siJro had been brought to bear to have them
reduced. It was the aim of his road to
lower less than carload rates whenever the
carload rates wcro lowered.
In response to questions of Mr. Walte
of Spencer , Wnlto & Uartlct , hardware deal
ers of Chicago , and J. P. Farley , manager
of the Dallas freight bureau , Mr. Parker
said that ho believed that with a lower
less than carload rate the Texas Jobbers
could still do business wherever they do
It at present.
A. T. Drew , general freight agent of the
Missouri , Kansas & Texas , who testified
Monday , was again put on the stand for
cross-examination. Ho explained the differ
ence In the methods of handling and unload
ing less than carload lots an 1 carl.ia 1 lots ,
his testimony showing that It was mnrc ex
pensive for the railroad to ban He less than
carload lots.
W H. Masters , manager of the New Or
leans freight bureau , explained how lh > > tom-
pctltlon of Jobbers and picssuro on the rail
roads brought about the adoption of iho
blanket sjstcm of rates The New Orleans
shippers , ho said , wanted rates so adjusted
that the less than carload shippers could
compete with the carload shtpp-s. Tnc ef
fect of the present discrepancy ! is bcdh f >
force many Jobbers to give up thr-lr TPU-S
trade. Ho said that In the past year , or
since the establishment of the prerunt dif
ferentials , shipments of lice and .mgir from
Now Oi leans had fallen off 76 par ronf.
Here the complainant rested Its ease.
J , W Van Clevo , representing the St.
Louis Manufacturers' association , was the
first witness for the defense. Ho t-ald that
to the local manufacturers the narrowing of
the rates would be detrimental to their Vi-
tcrests. A ieduction of less than carload
rates would Increase the manufacturer's
competition. It was safer and better to dis
pose of manufactuicd goods to Jobbers than
to retailers. He thought the raising of car
load talcs would cause the manufacturers to
suffer seriously. The same would anplv to
the reduction of the less than carload rates.
The manufacturers wanted the rates con
tinued as at present.

DES MOINBS , Sept. 29. ( Spfclal Tele
gram. ) The democratic $ tate central com-
nlttco met today and held n secret ses
sion , lasting all Iho afternoon. It was
stated that the conference wts to consider
conditions In the state generally , to decide
on n course of action with reference to
keeping the national democratic ticket ofT
the official ballot , and to straighten out
the Second congressional district muddle.
Thb commit ! ccmen were not gcnerallj
very well pleased with the outlook in the
state , and admitted among themselves that
the silver cause had been losing ground
fast for a month nnd never [ aster than at
present. The meeting was a blue one , so
far as concerned the discussion of the gen
eral outlook. The only district that they
seriously hope to pave Is the Sixth , where
the committee Is hopeful of electing White ,
democrat , over Lacey.
The full democratic state tlckci. was filed
with the secretary of stain after the meet
ing , except candidates for Judges In two
or three districts that will hold their con
ventions this week. The greater part of
the time was taken up with the Second ,
or Davenport district congressional row
The committee dcclaies that H hos n posi
tive pledge from Llojd , populist nominee ,
that he would withdraw In case the demo
crats nominated Hurst. The democrats did
this and now Lloyd refuses to pull off. The
populist state committed stands by him ,
although It was at first expected to side
with the democrats , and Induce him to with
draw. The result Is that relations be
tween the populists and democrats
are strained to the utmost , their
campaign headquarters nroIn adjoining
suites of rooms and the communication
between them , heretofore free nnd continu
ous , Is almost discontinued. The demociatlc
committee decided today that under no cir
cumstances will It withdraw Hurst. Llojd
and the populists have given their ulti
matum , which Is that Hurst must be with
drawn nnd Lloyd Indorsed. The relations
have become so stl. lined that It Is said the
populists would put Borne raoro congressional
candidates In the field by way of retaliation
If they had tlmo ; but under the- ballot law
there ) Is not tlmo for this. A telegram was
received from Hurst's representative sajlng
that all rumois of his withdrawal were un
founded , and that ho will make the run in
splto of Lloyd.
The committee has attorneys working on
plans to prevent the sound money dem
ocrats from getting on the ballot under the
name they have chosen , but will not say
what proceeding will be had. It Is under
stood the secretary of Btato will be man-
damuscd as soon as the sound money ticket
Is filed to prevent It going1 on under the
name chosen. If the courts ! decide against
the ticket under this name the plan of the
gold democrats Is to change th'e name. Then
the silver men will set up that the petition
has been signed with the name "National
democratic party" used , and that new peti
tions must be secured before the new name
can even be considered. As 'the tlmo Is
close at hand when the papers must be filed
they hope' In this v.'ay to make it Impossible
fo : the gold men to get on tbo ticket at all
The gold men have o\cr J.OOO' signatures on
petitions that have thus , far been returned
but the silver1 men hope to inako these
useless.

ENTHUSIASM ALONG THB HOAD.
HASTINGS , Neb , Sept. 29. ( Special Tele
gram ) The generals' special train made a
stop at Button for water , and the sight
which greeted the distinguished visitors as
the train drew up was one ccitalnly calcu
lated to tickle their vanity. The whole-
city nnd the broad countrjslde , too , were
assembled at the depot. Men , women and
children fairly swarmed upon the private
cars , and for a moment or so threatened to
literally overwhelm them. The appearance
of Sickles , Tanner , Howard and Alger upon
the rear , platformw.as the signal for a grand
outburst of cheers for McKlnley and this
uproar was continued with a vehemence
and persistency that threatened to preclude
the possibility of hearing either of the gen
tlemen oven In the briefest address Order
was finally restored , however , and both Gen
eral Sickles nnd Corporal Tanner got In a
few words , evidently much to the satisfac
tion of , the enthusiastic masses , nnd amidst
another thunder of cheers the train pulled
out.
out.When
When the special arrived at Hastings and
was yet within a block of the station , the
engineer was obliged to slow up his loco
motion , BO great was the crowd which cov
ered the track In front and surrounding
the depot , eager to shout a welcome to the
chieftains of the rebellion. The belch of
deep-toned artillery , the explosion ot giant
powder , the music of fife nnd drum , the
Joyful cry of the old soldiers as they again
saw their commanders , the glad acclaim of
the multitude , all greeted the generals as
they entered the town nnd to their cars
was sweet harmony. Fully G 000 visitors
were present. Why , men drove for fifty
miles and brought their families In wagons
that they might see .the heroes of the war.
It was a magnificent reception. After the
generals had been escorted to their car
riages the parade was formed and the march
to the park , at the corner of Third street
and Lincoln avenue , was commenced.
PARADE AND CRUSH.
The members of Silas A. Strickland post ,
G. A. H. , and Union Veterans' league were
the personal escort of the generals. In the
lead was the Hastings military band and
the McKlnley Sound Money Marching and
Flambeau clubs. Following the hundreds
of soldiers In the line were the carriages
and back of the carriages was the West
Blue Martial band , the Boys' Flambeau
club and a long line ot marchers composed
of the citizens of Hastings and visitors from
Kalrfield , Edgar. Grand Island , Coleridge
and Kearney , The parade was through the
city's principal streets to thb park nnd the
sidewalks all the way were lined with pee
ple. When the head of the procession
reached the park the Immense amphitheater
was already filled and In a few minutes all
was confusion Those who had waited at
the depot for two long , tedious hours and
those who had lingered along the streets to
sec the passing of the parade went rushing
Into the space which Immediately surrounds
thu speakers' stand and a crush followed
Many children were caught In the ciowd
and two or three women vvero removed In a
fainting condition from the suffocating Jam
Finally Fred B Olmstead , county chairman ,
appealed to those In front of the stand to
move away and glvo place to the old sol
diers. When order was In a measure re
stored , ex-Senator Manderson was Introduced
and In brief but well timed remarks In
troduced the generals. General Sickles wao
first presented to the meeting and from his
seat In an easy chair mounted on a table
in the center of the platform the battle-
scarred old veteran told ton thousand people
why ho was going to vote for McKlnley
So great was the enthusiasm and the seem
ing Idolatrous worship of the old soldier
that ho found It difficult to proceed , amldnt
the frequent outbursts of uproarious con
gratulation and applause. Corporal Tanner
followed Sickles , his talk being likewise
made especially to the soldiers. He , lee ,
was cordially received as wcro Generals Al
ger and Stewart , each of whom made
speeches of twenty minutes' duration.
There la no uncertainty In the position
accepted this year by the republicans of
Adams county. They will hold fast to their
normal 400 majority and do better than that.

The gcnctals were given another hair-

to this city , the ninety-six miles being
knocked off In ninety-tight minutes. This

the time the party returned this evening
from Its run to Hastings the crowd had
become a pr ° tty respectable Jam , even for
the w Ido streets of the Capital City. There
had been great disappointment thai
the old warriors had not been hereto
to lake part In the greal parade of the
afternoon. But the Impromptu column that
escorted them uptown from the train was
more of n popular testimonial , If possible ,
then the formal array of marching clubs
could have been Everwhere the streets

the sight of Howard's emptj sleeve and Dan
Sickle's black crutch brought back vividly

with mlnnlc ball and solid shot , grape nnd

grand old fighting men hnvo again arrnjed
thcmeslves to defend the honor of their

Beatrice Plnttsmouth , Ashland , Seward ,
Giand Island and from a score or more of
other ( owns outside of Lancaster county
They came on trains , In wagons nnd on
horseback until It seemed that the v hole
state of Nebraska had swooped down on

to McKlnley and the cause of eound money.
The day was a delightful ono and the
weather could not have been more propiti

and fell on thu passing breczo. The pic
tured faces of , William McKlnloy and Garret
A. Holmrf gazed" Crt the .eccnq from thou
sands of windows and seemed to smile on
their enthusiastic followers as they marched
through the streets to the sound of martial
music. Even the headquarteis of the dem
ocratic county committee and the business
houses of many well known democrats were
decorated with the national colors In honor
of the occasion

DISAPPOINTED THB MARCHERS.
Darly this forenoon C. H. Morrlll received
a telegram containing the Intelligence Unit
the train bearing General Alger and his
party of war generals was three hours late
and that they would not bo able to reach
Lincoln until S o'clock tonight , Instead of
3 o'clock. The proposed reception at the
state house therefore had to be abandoned ,
greatly to the regret of evcrjboiy. Mi.
Morrlll went to Hustings to accompany llu
visitors to the city.
Thu train carrying General Algei and
party arrived at the Burlington depot , en
route for Hastings. A salute of welcome
wan fired from the big cannon In govern
ment square. Only a short stop was made
at the depot , but the big crowd found time
and an opportunity to cheer the fnmoiiB
heroes.
An Interesting and appropriate feature
of the day was furnished by Hlckman. It
was a mounted club , thirty-three In nuin
her. There wcro thirty-two whlto hortes
and a vellow one , representing the com
mercial ratio between gold and sliver.
Owing to the unprecedented number of
clubs , bands and organizations reporting
for positions , the parade , which waa sched
uled to occur at 2 o'clock , did not rio\o
until 3 o'clock.
At the state capltol grounds the vast
audience that gathered after the purndc
was addressed by General O 0 Ilowoi'i
Governor Larrabee ot Iowa , Colonel C F
Lincoln nnd Hon. E , C Elllotf The hour
of the speaking was late , hut the- crowd
hum' around the stand erected nt Iho north
portico of the rnpllol bulldhi ; until llo :
addresses were completed , and still the )
walled for other speakers.
The principal feature of the mammoth
p&rado was the largo number of female
inarching clubs In line. The La lies' Mc
Klnley club of Geneva , with KID In line
was clothed In a uniform of red They pre
sented a most pleasing appearance. Thr
Dorchester Young Ladles' club was slmllarlly

4,000 men and women participated In the
