Fresh Outrages in Armenia

VILLAGES RAVAGED BY TURKISH TROOPS.

THE PEOPLE APPEAL TO THE POWERS


LONDON, Aug. 27.

Fresh outrages of a serious nature are reported from Armenia, this time in a part of the country far removed from the scene of the recent atrocities.

The locality of these latest outrages is Erzinghian, some 150 miles westward of Erzeroum, tthe capital of Armenia. The Turkish troops there have been committing terrible excesses among the Christian villages.

The unfortunate inhabitants are appealing to the European powers for protection.
