THE DILEMMA OF TABRIZ. STARVATION OR MASSACRE. SUFFERINGS OF THE CITT. (By Cable.—Press Association.—Copyright.) ' ( (Received 5.35 a.m.) LONDON, April 6. The "Times" Teheran correspondent states that several Irishmen and an American are drilling the revolutionaries who are investing Tabriz. The sufferings of the town are increasing. If the siege continues thousands will die of starvation, while if it capitulates tens of thousands will be madsacred. Ever since the Shah's forcible suppression ot the Constitution in May of last year the Nationalists have held the upper hand in the northern districts and the chief towns of Northern Persia. Tabriz has been in a state of siege for the last six months. Britain and Russia, the Powers chietiy concerned in Persia, have preserved an attitude of non-interven-tion, but Britain has warned the Shah that the Government will be held responsible should harm befall the British Consulate. The Shahs troops gained a temporary victory over the revolutionaries last month, but were later routed and dispersed. A number of villages have been sacked by the Nationalists, and many outrages have been reported, while Armenian bands on the frontier have been guilty of great lawlessness.
