The Adana Massacres

INADEQUATE SENTENCES

LONDON, Sept. 8.

In connection with the massacres at Adana, Asia Minor, Djevad Bey, ex Vali, has been sentenced to six years exclusion from the public service; Remzi Pacha, military commandant, to three years imprisonment. The Governor was acquitted.

The Armenian Patriarch has resigned, as a protest against the inadequacy of the sentences, and a sentence of death passed on four innocent Armenians.
