Here are some excerpts:
. . . It was almost the single organization; she did not play the verbal propaganda only against regime, she also decreed political acts. It made carry out number of spies and of governmental oppressors. It sentenced to death, between others, bloodthirsty Vali Ali Bey, governor general of Van; and when this one, escaping anger of fidaïs, escaped in Caucasus, our terrorists carried out the sentence of the committee of Horsebox, and fierce Ali Bey fell under bullets in Batoum (in 1907). . .
. . During last three years, the party lived and grew in the stormy atmosphere of revolutionary battles. . .
. . .Masses must be armed - at least partly- they must be prepared, educated by military means for offensive as for defensive. . .
. . .The party "Daschnaktzoutioun" used this partial waking of the Muslim masses to push Turkish youth to the organization. Our friends tied narrow relations with elements aware of this youth. In Van and in the province, by our efforts, a Turkish committee was created in 1906. It adopted a program of political and economic action. It involved ideas socialists-revolutionaries. The Jeunes-Turcs of Van published their "Sabah ul Kaïr" weekly organ, which developed the basic principles of the socialism. As regards the future organization of Empire, they adopted by common consent with our friends, the principle of decentralization and the self-government of nationalities.. . .
. . .In Turkey, it supported efforts of the party Young Turk (Jeune Turc), against the hamidian absolutism which he had fought for 20 years, alone, with the Macedonian revolutionaries.. .
