SEPTEMBER 29, 1915

WASHINGTON, Sept. 27.--Ambassador Morgentau at Constantinople was today instructed to inquire into reported outrages against Armenians in Turkey and to ascertain if any victims are American citizens by birth or naturalization.

So far nothing has been received from the embassy at Constantinople to indicate that American citizens have suffered, but American mission property has been taxed and threatened with confiscation. The report of the murder of two American missionaries is still unconfirmed.
