Armenian Massacres

HORROR AND INDIGNATION

LONDON, Oct. 12.

Replying to a question concerning Armenia, Sir Edward Grey, Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, in the House of Commons to-day referred to the statement of the Marquis of Crewe, President of the Council, that the Government had received information that the population in one district had been absolutely exterminated. Sir Edward Grey said there could only be a feeling of horror and indignation at the outrage.

The United States Department of State learns that the Armenian massacres have been resumed with vigour since Bulgaria's entrance into the war.

American representations to Turkey against the Armenian massacres have not been heeded. It is not believed the United States will take further action.

PROTEST FROM THE POPE

The "Correspondenza" (Rome) states that after the Holy See's repeated diplomatic protests against the Armenian massacres, the Pope wrote personally to the Sultan of Turkey, who promised to stop the massacres.
