San Francisco Cal oct. 7.�?nalui-ally the thing uppermost in attorney Deuprey s mind was the damaging statement made by or. Gilbert f. Gra Ham against Durrant which was published today. The knowledge that dormant s classmate halt i announced his intention to go on the witness stand and testify that the accused had confessed to him that he had no notes of or. Cheney s lecture nettled the attorney not a Little although he declared that he was confident of breaking Gra Ham Down on Cross examination. What do i think of Graham s statement Quot said or. Deuprey. Quot i am amazed at it. I cannot understand it really. I have talked with Graham and he has never mentioned such a thing to me. In fact he denied in the presence of four witnesses that Durrant had Ever made an improper proposal to him. I had heard that he was Likely to make such a statement and asked him Point Blank regarding the matter. He declared positively that nothing out of the Way had taken place during his interview with Durrant. I was very favourably impressed with Graham and believed and believe yeas far As that is concerned that he told me the truth. He struck me As being a quiet intelligent Young fellow who could not be led to say anything he did not mean. But the statement he now makes to the police surprises \ "now�-1 want to Tell you something Quot continued or. Deuprey As is Shook his Finger impressively. Quot we have simply landed or. Graham in an uncomfortable place. He says now that Durrant told him he had no notes of that lecture and wanted to borrow his Graham presumably to copy them in order to bolster up an Alibi now the fact of the matter is Durrani s notes of or. Cheney s lecture were in the Poss Sion of general Dickinson and myself Long before Gra am Ever called at the jail. We had Triem in our Possession almost from the time of Durrant s arrest. What will Graham s testimony amount to As against that what need would Durrant have had for Graham s notes Quot Quot during his interview with or. Gra Ham did he not Tell you that Durrant had confessed that he had no notes of or. Cheney s lecture and wanted Graham s in order to copy them and strengthen his Alibi Quot never in the world Quot replied or. Deuprey with emphasis. Quot he never even intimated such a Quot but suppose Graham goes on the witness stand and testifies that such was the Case Quot Quot Quot then i will say that he testifies to something which is untrue.

He was brought to this City and died last riots. Four dead armenians found upon the Field. Peculiar methods of the Turk ii in sup pressing oath reads always Nead Arda erlans ii it behind. via Sofia oct. 7.�? the representatives of the Powers have sent a collective note to the turkish government calling attention to the inadequate measures taken by the police authorities to maintain Public Tranquility in constantinople and its suburbs and demanding the prompt investigation or a rigorous inquiry into the recent rioting bloodshed and wholesale imprisonment of armenians Here. In addition the Powers demand the release of All prisoners who Are innocent of wrong doing and the cessation of arrests. Said Pasha the new turkish minister for foreign affairs has called at the different embassies and has presented to the representatives of the Powers a communication from the turkish government repeating the Assurance that a pl9p,.for Reform in Armenia has been accepted by the Porte. It is not believed however that this will satisfy the Powers. There have been no further excesses however although a feeling of great disquiet still prevails and fresh demonstrations upon the part of ther armenians Are feared. The armenians who Are still inside the patriarchate Church Here in which they sought Refuge after the rioting of monday last fired some shots at noon today and it was feared that another outbreak was imminent. The police watching the building promptly notified the military authorities and a Strong Force of troops was sent to the spot. The soldiers immediately blocked All the adjacent streets. This action of the military caused quite a panic among the inhabitants of that Quarter and they fled from their Homes in All directions. The Kurdes then entered the workshops among the quays and expelled from then All the armenians they could find. Later it is claimed the bodies of four armenians were found. There is one feature of the police work which is attracting considerable attention. It is frequently recalled that the Gen d arms while making arrests repeatedly told the persons taken into custody to Quot Call upon England to deliver those who know the Way of turkish officials say that this shows that the police were instructed to impress upon the minds of the armenians that great Britain was unable or unwilling to assist them in this emergency. Finally Many quarters of Sta Bull have been placarded with notices inciting the populace against Quot the infidels Quot the police it is True tear Down these placards but they Are either unable or unwilling to do so before they have been widely read and have had the effect anticipated upon the Mohame Dan population. It is not believed that the government is responsible for this agitation but the work is being done and the government apparently a us Arle to put a Stop to it.

They returned and placed the matter in the hands of their Union which secured the indictments. The markets. Lobain Ohio oct. 7.-the laying of the Corner Stone of the new St. Mary s Catholic Church in this City yesterday was accompanied by an awful disaster. Fully 5.000 people were in attendance and the priests were about ready to proceed with the services when the platform fell and created a panic. One person was killed outright ten were fatally injured and nearly forty badly Hurt the foundation for the building extended about ten feet above the base ment Bottom and on this was erected a platform where the ceremonies were being held. Over 1,000 people were standing on the floor when a Section of it containing about 300 people Sank beneath its Burden and precipitated them into a pit the Section which gave Way was in two wings and As it Sank it formed a death trap for the people from which there was very Little Chance to escape. The pit resembled an inverted roof of a very Steep slant the ends being closed up by Stone Walls and into this it was that there were crowded men women and children in one struggling mass. As the floor gave Way a great cry went up from the multitude but in another second it had fallen with a crash. Those at the top of the mass escaped easily but when the pit was partly emptied those victims still entrapped could rot clamber up the Steep sides and they trampled each other like so Many wild creatures the Strong getting on top and the weak being crushed beneath the greater weight. The dead and fatally injured Are marry Webber three years old daughter of or. And mrs. Mat Webber of Springfield instantly killed. Those fatally injured Are boat Mcgee three years old Skull fractured. Katie Griffin eight years old Hurt internally. Mrs. Mary Mcgraith left leg crushed and Hurt internally.

Although 1,000 people were Ray to Rush to the Rescue they could Render very Little Aid to the helpless persons in the pit and several minutes elapsed before the ropes and ladders were placed in position. The old Catholic Church near by was turned into a Hospital and morgue. Into this were carried the killed and injured. The contractors Are to blame for the disaster. Poor and insufficient timbers were used and warning was Given them yesterday that the platform was insecure but they were confident it would hold any weight that could be placed upon it. Five ambulances and a score of physicians were kept Busy for a time. The mayor and other City officials Lent a helping hand in caring for the injured. Notwithstanding the Shock of the Accident the priests succeeded in quieting the crowd afterwards and continued the services. Very Bev. Monsignore Boff of Cleveland delivered the Sermon.

It is a unique and valuable production and amounts to an argument in defense of christianity from the standpoint of one who has had Larivie experience in the practice of Law. Senator Voorhees Hus had his doubts and perplexities on the subject of religion. There have been times we ten he was sceptical of the genuineness of and authenticity of the scriptures and there have been other times when Tea a a him ii the ii la Dallas Tex oct. 7.�?up to this hour no Point has been settled on Lor the Corbett Fitzsimmons fight. Indian territory is melting wires asking for it for half a dozen towns. There Are several representatives Down from there putting Forth reasons who their respective localities should have it there is at least no serious thought of going to Mexico Arizona Colorado or California As has been suggested it is nearly certain that some nation of the five civilized tribes in the territory will be selected. Today or tomorrow the Florida athletic club will meet in this City consider All the pro sit ions and hear each representative at that meeting. Brady will appear for Cor Bett and Julian for Fitzsimmons. As soon As the place is determined by that meeting it will be Given out to the world. This is the exact situation upon that Point. Then the partially constructed Ampi Thoat a win i pulled Down taken to the Point selected and erected and completed within ten or fifteen Days. It will be in easy Access of Dallas and gained at Little or no More expense than Here. The plan seems to be to concentrate the crowd at Dallas and go hence to the ring. The Indian to Rritt by is eighty Miles away and can be made in a three hours run. Wash Seton oct. 7.�?commissioner Browning of the Indian office has taken prompt and decisive Steps to prevent the Corbett Fitzsimmons prize fight taking place in the Indian territory. He has prepared a letter of instructions to agent Wisdom at Muskogee i. T., directing him to see that the Laws Are enforced a eject forcibly any intruders who May enter the in Dian country for the purpose of creating a disturbance or of eng ing in anything that May be detrimental to the indians. The commissioner says to act the statutes of the United states Are ample to cover the situation and to prevent the fight. The agent will have at his Back not Only the India police but All the United states troops necessary to eject the fighters. The statutes give the United states authority to keep out of the Indian territory All. Persons whose presence will be detrimental to the peace and Prosperity of the indians. The commissioner says there is no doubt that the prese Nipe of the prize fighters and the gang thai would follow them into the Indian country would be very detrimental to the indians and that is the duty of the Indian office to keep them out. He says that the agent at mus Cogel has not got As much authority As the agents on reservations but nevertheless has Enos ii to prevent the fight taking place in the territory of the a Ivy civilized tribes. The commissioner intends also to notify All the governors and head men of the five civilized tribes that they must not allow the fight to take place and must assist the United St Tes authorities in preventing it. Commander Browning was asked if the admission of Corbett Fitzsimmons and others connected with the fight to citizenship in one of the tribes would make any difference in the authority of the government and he said that it would not change the conditions in the least. The government has the Power to expel a full blood Indian from the territory if the peace and Good order of the indians required it. The government will be Able to exercise a great Deal of discretion in the affairs. The United states marshals or the Indian agent and his. Police backed by the United state troops can remove the fighters As intruders and keep them out and then answer to violation of the Law afterwards. It is not a Case where the fight might take place and the fighters can then be called upon As to whether they have violated the Law. The government will not even wait for the affair to Progress that far. The principals and others connected with the fight will be unceremoniously hustled Fifthe Indian lands on the ground that they Are intruders whose presence is undesirable. If they make any complaints about it the courts will have to determine the rights of the matter and it is. Believed the probabilities Are that the Power of the United states government will be broadly interpreted. Anderson Church dedicated. Roman catholics consecrate a Bucanti in new edifice.

Thirty years ago yesterday on the feast of the holy Rosary the first service was held in the old Church which was replaced a few years ago by the Fine new Structure on the Comer of West Washington and Griffith streets.

I or Many years our Navy has Ben obliged to Content itself with the adoption of such Marine tactics indeed in foreign codes As seemed 4iriable. In so far As these related Indi Virtud usefulness has been demonstrated from time to time hut when it came to the great Fleet manoeuvres the department was obliged to take them on Trust. There has been a distinct difference of opinion among naval officers As to the suitability of Many of these rules tor our own use and the department has Long sought the Opportunity to ascertain their value by a practical demonstration. For the first time since we began to build a Modem Navy the Opportunity is now in reach and this is the work the Squadron is now carrying on and which it will continue during the Winter for very much remains to be done. United states supreme court the fall term of the court begins at Wasbin ton. Quot Washington. Oct. 7.�?with the exception of Justice Gray All of the supreme court justices have returned to Washington in anticipation of the opening of the fall term of court. The recess has Given time for the members to consider cases which were submitted but not decided at the last term. Among these is the litigation of the consolidated electric lighting company involving a number of patents connected with electric lighting. Other cases in which decisions Are expected Are the United states against the Western Union Telegraph company involving the question of telegraphic rates against the government alone the Union Pacific lines the Sioux City and St. Paul Railroad company against the United states involving the ownership of land Grants in Iowa Gil Field against Mckee involving a part of the moneys appropriated to Settle the Choctaw claims Meyer against Richards which is a suit growing out of the irregular re issuance of Bonds which had been cancelled by the treasurer of Louisana an interesting Case remaining to be decided is that of John g. Moore against the commissioner of internal Revenue asking that the commissioner be enjoined from enforcing the collection of the income tax. This is one of three suits begun at the same time. The court passed upon the other two but left this undecided. It is of Little further consequence now that the Law has been declared unconstitutional yet it May possibly afford a basis for another ruling of the income tax not on the merits but on the request for an injunction. An important opinion of the question of foreign judgments is also expected. The Case in Point was decided at the end of the last term it being held that a French judgment could not be collected in american courts. It was an Oral decision however and it yet remains for the court to hand Down the full opinion. Can Rob bar Neil.
