Mr. Pearson to Mr. Hay.


(Mr. Pearson reports that the murderer of Labaree, named Seyd Jafer, is identified and located near Mount Ararat on the Turkish frontier. This same man murdered a British subject, and the American and British legations are jointly insisting on energetic action on the part of the Government to bring the murderer to justice. At the request of Mr. Pearson the Persian Government sent stringent telegraphic orders for the protection of Christians.)
