The other residence is Fulham Palace, which is across the Thames from the suburb of Putney, where the Oxford-Cam'bridge boat races stan. The bishop explained to a d'io- conference that of his income went for income tax, 500 to maintain these two estab- lishments, and rto keep a motor, and the minimum of ten servants abso- lutely needed for Fulham Palace alone. "You must he said, "it can- not be done. You ask your wives. Pessimists have told me I would not be able even to keep Fulham Pal- ace going, but I Intend to make a great effort before parting with a historic possession of the church for 1300 -years." The Bishop is in the same boat with numerous others of the clergy. They are appointed to a position with a certain salary, "and living."

The Turks j wantonly destroyed everything in their path. The result is that the Armenian republic has no cattle.! seed grain, at all j to eat." The American committee for Re- lief in the Near East is making ev- ery effort, according to Lieutenant Chater. to succor the starving Ar- menians. From February 8 to April 1. with the aid of the American Red Cross, it put into the 5.600 tons of flour. Distribution is a dif- ficult problem. Food is carried to interior points by native -bullock carts. While the Erivan Republic" is starving, its neighbor Georgia- is thriving. Throughout the country Lieutenant Chater said he saw fine grazing lands and large herds and flocks. The Georgians were not molested by 'the Turks and the coun- try has had to deal with few Ar- menian refugees except those at Tif- lis. to which city Turkish Armen- j ians have fled since 1915.
