TWO AMERICANS
REPORTED DEAD
Missionaries Slain in Anti
Armenian Outbreak.
SANY CimSTlANS KILLED
Massacre at Adana, Asiatic Turkey,
Appears to Have Broken Out Afresh,
Sixty Armenians Losing Their Lives
and Numerous Houses Being Looted
and Burned—Names of American
.Victims Not Given.
Constantinople, April 17.—Informa
tion received here from Adana, in Asi
atic Turkey, declares that two Amer
ican missionaries have been killed in
the anti-Armenian outbreak at that
place.
The Moslem fanaticism against the
Christians of Adana appears to have
broken out afresh. The Moslem at
tacks have continued for twenty-four
hours, i^arge numbers of Christians
are said to have been killed. One re
port says that sixty Armenians have
lost their lives and that many houses
have been looted and burned. There
is no confirmation of the death of the
two American missionaries. Their
names are not given in the dispatch
received here. The British vice con
sul &t Mersina has proceeded to
Adana.
The first news of this anti-Christian
outbreak said the scene was Mersina,
but this was erroneous. The trouble
occurred at Adana, which is about
thlrty-Bix miles inland from Mersina.
Ambassador Leishman has had no
direct news of the reiorted killing of
the two American missionaries. He
has instructed the American vice con
sul at Menina. John Debbas, to pro
ceed immediately for Adana and re
port on the situation. Railroad com-

MADISON. SOUTH DAKOTA, SATURDAY. APRIL 17. 1909
FOB DEFRAUDING
THE GOVERNMENT
Cudahy Packing Company
Indicted.
A
UNCLE SAM LOST $80,000
Alleged That Kansas City Concern
Used Quarter-Cent Revenue Stamps
on Oleomargarine When the Law
Called for a Ten-Cent Stamp—Total
Maximum Fine, if Convicted, Will
Be Nearly $750,000.
Topeka, Kan., April 17.—Indictments
w re returned here by the federal
iand jury against the Cudahy Pack
i company of Kansas City, Kan., on
'7 counts for defrauding the govern
ment out of $80,000 by violations of
the internal revenue laws. The charge
that the company has defrauded the
vernment out of over $80,000 in rev
enues on oleomargarine. The maxi
mum fine on each Of the 717 eounts
is $1,000.
The revenue law provides that each
pound of uncolored oleomargarine
i iust bear a revenue stamp of a quar
of a cent, but that each pound to
v hich coloring matter has been added
u. give it the appearance of butter a
p'-cent
revenue stamp must be at
tached.
It is charged in the indictments
Kat the Cudahy company has sold the
olored product under the quarter of
a cent tax and consequently has de
ft auded the government out of large
Hums.
Inspectors have been working on
the case several months and have se
cured samples sold in towns and cit
ies from New York to Seattle and
from Duluth to Jacksonville. These
were forwarded to the government
chemist, who reported that every sam
ple contained coloring matter, and
this evidence was turned over to Dis
trict Attorney H. J. Bone at Topeka,
who submitted the facts to the grand
Jury.
Every sample now in the hands of
the government experts bears the
identification mark of the Inspector
who purchased it, as well as the anal
ysis which shows that it contains col
oring matter.
It is claimed by the government offi
cials that the Cudahy company has
succeeded in monopolizing the oleo
margarine market by selling the col
ored product and paying the tax on
the basis of the uncolored, there being
a difference of 9% cents per pound.
By this means, It is claimed, they
were enabled to undersell other man
agers and control the market.
While this criminal action, which
provides for a maximum fine of nearly
$750,000, will be prosecuted District
Attorney Bone says it does not end
the matter. He will bring a civil ac
tion against the company to have the
plant and machinery used in the man
ufacture of oleomargarine confiscated
