Turkey and Armenia

NOTE FROM THE POWERS

THE SULTAN'S REPLY UNSATISFACTORY

TORTURES OF AN ARMENIAN PRISONER


LONDON, Oct. 8.

It is believed that the reply of tbe Sultan of Turkey to the joint note from the Powers demanding the acceptance of the Armenian reforms as formulated by the joint Commission, is not of a satisfactory character.

All business has ceased in Constantinople and the city is placarded, inciting the populace against the "infidels."

The European quarters at Pera are barricaded.

An Armenian, who has just been released from prison, gives an account of the torture to which he was subjected by the Turks for refusing to reveal the hiding-place of Armenian suspects. He declares that he was confined in a dark call for 27 days. His limbs were screwed down to the floor, and the screws were tightened daily.
