FAMINE IN TABRIZ. FEARS OF A MASSACRE. (Received 9.15 a.m.) TEHERAN, April 11. A hundred thousand of the inhabitants of Tabriz are famishing, and are ready to surrender, but fear that if they do they will be massacred. A thousand Tangistani tribesmen pillaged and terrorised Bushire, a seaport on the Persian Gulf. The British cruiser Fox, at the instance of the foreign consuls, including the German, French, and Russian, landed a party of bluejackets, whereupon the tribesmen departed.
