Ha-Melitz. No.201. September 25, 1896, p. 3.

The Jews were shelter to many Armenians, and they hid them until the indignation be past.
Hundreds of Armenians were saved from death only by the help of the Jews, their neighbors or acquaintances.
It is therefore, that hoodlums and hooligans decided to riot on the fast day of Yom Kippur of the Jews, for this purpose they began to throw stones at the windows of the Jews' synagogues at which are at full capacity that day, or spread a false rumor, that a fire erupted, for the sake of triggering anxiety and bring upon confusion & panic [stampede] on city streets... But their malicious plan did not go through and the anxiety passed without any bad consequences for people and property.

"בחוץ לארצנו"
[...]
היהודים היו סתרה לארמנים רבים ויחביאום בבתיהם עד יעבור זעם, ארמנים למאות מלטו נפשם ממות רק בעזרת היהודים שכניהם או מכיריהם.
תחת זה אמרו פוחזים וריקים לפרוע פרעות ביום צום כפור ליהודים, לתכלית זאת החלו להשליך אבנים אל חלונות בהכ"נ ליהודים המלאים ביום ההוא אדם או להפיץ שמועת שוא, כי נפלה דליקה, למען הפל חרדה והבא מבוכה ומרוצה ומבוסה בחוצות עיר ומצאה ידם לעשות זר מעשיהם, אפס כי מחשבתם הרעה לא באה והחרדה עברה מבלי כל תוצאות רעות לנפש ולרכוש.
