AFRICAN SULTAN l'KlSONKK.
Possible Ally of Mail Mullah Hrmovcd
From Fluid of Action.
Aden (Arabia), February 4. Ad
vices received here to-day from
Obbia, on the Somali coast of East
Africa, say that the Italian Consul
there on January 29th invited
Yustif All, the Sultan of Obbia,
and his eldest son on board an Ital
ian gunboat, where they were de
tained. This, it is pointed out,
removes one of the chief difficulties
in the British arrangements for an
advance against the Mad Mullah.
The question why professional
fees should be in guineas and not
in sovereigns, says the St. James
Gazette, has been asked often, and
nb more satisfactory answer can be
got than that it is a survival of the
days when a coin of guineas was
well known in these islands. A
writer in the Lady has been look-
iug into the history of the guinea,
Sir Robert Holmes, one of the
most picturesque figures in the an-
nals of the Isle of Wight, was really
responsible for it. Half soldier,
half sailor, half English, half Irish,
wholly loyal to the crown, the
merry, stalwart, filibustering hero
was equally popular with both the
Charleses, and was made Governor
of the island by Charles II. Sir
Robert it was who, in 1666, cap
tured a golden prize in Schelli g
bay, that consisted of bullion and
gold dust from Cape Coast Castle,
in Guinea. This rich prize was
coined into gold pieces, stamped
with an elephant, and to commem
orate the capture these pieces of
money were called uuineas. Sir
Robert seems to have had plenty of
these golden coins. At Yarmouth,
Isle of Wight, so long the sight of
the Governor's house, shrimpers
and lobster catchers still look out
for the stray gold pieces he was
wont to scatter or that may have
been lost or hidden in the smug
gling raids so common in his day.
The guinea is not nearly so antique
as many or the coins now in circu
lation. The simple, respectable
sovereign is more than a century
older, and dates from the time of
Henry VII. The guinea displaced
it, but'sovcreigus were rccoined in
the eariy part of the last century,
and soon after that they completely
ousted the guinea piece.
Letter Tubes In Paris.
A scheme is being promoted in
Paris for constructing a system of
subterranean pneumatic conduits
lor the rapid trausporation of mail
matter and parcel freight and ex
press. The proposition has been
brought to the notice of the Gov
ernment and official trials will be
made of models. The system em
ploys electricity as its motive pow
er, . and its investors Represent
that they can transport cars weigh
ing a ton over any given distance
at a speed of 160 miles an hour.
The system is styled the "electric
postal service." A metal duct is
to be constructed, of a width of not
exceeding thirty inches, which
will be wide enough for a double
track to accommodate trains going
in opposite directions. The cars
would be simply sheet-iron cases
supported on two or four axles,
and carrying the electric motor.
The central compartment of each
"car," measuring about twenty
cubic feet, would be reserved for
freight. The total length of each
vehicle would be about twenty-two
feet, but it would not exceed twenty
inches in height. To counteract
the resistance of.the air naturally
of great force in view of the exces
sive speed attained by the vehicle
the front and rear of each car
would be equipped with wind cutters
of parabolic form. Engineering
