I KILLED BY KURDS. I A CHRISTIAN MISSIONARY MURDERED. Dr. Labaree, of the American mission in North Persia, has furnished for publication particulars of the recent murder of his son, the Rev. B. W. Labaree, by Kurdish robbers. "Word was brought to Dilman," writes Dr. Labaree, the Government seat in Salmas, that the body of a Christian had been seen by tra- vellers on the main road between Salmas and Khoi. Mr. Labaree was expected to come from Khoi .to Salmas that day. It was feared an accident might have befallen him. A search party, accompanied by three cavalrymen, stsrted out, and some 10 or 12 miles from Dilman they found, lying in the road, the dead body of Israel, Mr. Labaree's ser- vant. "Near the place where this body was lying they found tracks showing that there had been six horses, two of which must have been Mr. Labaree's. After following these tracks for some miles they found Mr. Labaree's body lying on the ground stripped of all clothing except the underwear and shirt, while an old pair of native SOCKS were on the feet, and near by an old pair of shoes. He had been killed by blows from a dagger (khanjar). The tracks of the horses were followed on further till they came to books and papers belonging to Mr. Labaree, most of them torn to pieces. "The place where Mr. Labaree was killed is between the. villages of Chicak and Kanagari, where the papers were found some distance from Hamza- kandi. The next day the bodies were taken to UIa, in Salmas, and arrangements were made for sending them to Urumia. We have every reason to believe," concludes Dr. Labaree," that the assassins were three Kurds, from near here, and a fanatical Seyyid, who has been terrorising the Christian villages near his own for two years past."
