am: mas st.vni.kv has oosk to
Beyond the fact that he W labor
ing in the cause of civilization some
where in the Soudan, very littlo is
known in this country of Einin Bey.
Yet he is truly a remarkable man.
It is now eight years since General
Gordon appointed him Governor
General of the Fgyptian Equatorial
Provinces, a tlistiiet so large that
Great Biitaiu would lie in u corner
of it. Emiu Bey, wlio was an Aus
trian Doctor, started on his work
without any ilourish of trumpets.
His task looked like an impossible
one, but Gordon was constantly
doing "impossible" things himself
and expected as much of his lieu
tenants. When Emin Bey readied
the provinces ho was to rule over if
lie could reduce them to order, he
found things about as bad as they
could be. That was in 1878. In
three years he had swept tho slave
traders out of that enormous tract of
land, with its 0,000,000 inhabitants,
and these gentry have never dared
to show their faces since. Tho
provinces had so far been governed
at a dcllcit of 38,000- per annum ;
by the end of 1881 there was a sur
plus of 8,000. Although the Governor-General
had established sev
eral public works in that time, tho
expenses of which were considerable,
this surplus was not obtained by
more taxation. Tho change has
been brought about simply by good
government, economy and the sup
pression of abuses.
Then came the rumors of troubles
in the Soudan. Emin Bey was one
of tho first to foresee them, and to
suggest how they might be dealt
with. His advice was disregarded,
and ho was told to attend to tho
affairs of his own "provinces. Then
came tho Soudan war, and being
hopelessly beyond relief, Emin Bey
was first neglected and then forgot
ten. It is thrco years sinco ho has
had any instructions of any kind
from tho Egyptian Government,
though in 1880 ho managed once or
twice to communicate with them.
As a rule what messages he sent to
.Egypt or elsewhero have been inter
cepted. All that is known of his
life during these three years is de
rived from a few private letters to a
friend in this country. As several
letters have been lost for the one
that has reached its destination, the
narrative is not continuous.
Emin Bey has more than held his
'own during these three years. There
has been lighting, but he has ilnvcn
the enemy back, sometimes after
terrible struggles. He has with him
.tonic four thousand troops, and this
is how he writes of them, referring
to one of these conflicts when his
men were attacked from tho nortli :
"Deprived of the most necessary
things, for a long time without any
pay, my men fought valiantly ; and
when at last hungor weakened them,
when, after ninotecn days of in
credible privations and sufferings,
their strength was exhausted, nnd
when the last torn leather of the last
boot had been eaten, then they cut
a way through the midst of their
enemies ami succeeded in saving
themselves." Now Emin Boy is not
a General Gordon, but lie is a man
of Gordon's stamp; and when so
modest nnd disinterested a com
mander writes in this fashion we
may be sure that his men have been
brave indeed. Now, do not let it be
thought that they stay there because
they have no option. Had Emin
Bey cared to leave the women and
children to their fate and the natives
to tho slave-traders, he could have
cut his way with tho pick of his men
to tho Congo. But Emin Bey
never thought of deserting his post
because tho Government had desert
ed him. Now, however, ho could
not withdraw, if ho wished to do so.
In his letters ho said that he would
endeavor by economizing to mako
his ammunition last out this year.
Without ammunition hit is at tho
mercy of tho first potentate ranch
as the King of Uganda who makes
up his mind to annex tho provinces.
Tho brave Austrian makes no de
mand on the British Government for
help, but lip sees and says that if a
rebel force could be sent to him it
would save his life and tho provinces.
In a letter, pathetic in its simplicity,
he expresses a hope that perhaps hs
friends will manago to do something
for him yet. All ho needs is ammu
nition. Ho has worked so hard in
his province that it grows for him
all else that ho needs.
Emin Bey has taught tho natives
of the Egyptian equatorial provinces
tho cultivation of cotton, rifle,
indigo, coffee, etc. Ho has made
weavers of some of them, and boot
makers of others. Tho soap he
uses is of liis own manufacture. In
his very last letter he told of his
attempts to vaccinate liU rjejpjc.
Tho death rato at tho provinces lias
been yery high of late, owing to nn
cpldcmio .of small-pox. lie has
built a hospital, in wjiieh lie spends
tho better part of his mornings. lie
is a schoolmaster. He has connected
tho different parts of the provinces
by weekly posts, thcro being forty
stations. In short ho has dono so
much in so short n space of time
that, with a little assistance, there
must bo n great career of usefulness
before him. fSt. James' Gazette.

Tho expedition which Mr. Stanley
is about to lead into Africa is by far
the largest and most expensive that
ever set out on n peaceful mission
in the Dark Continent. Traveling
in savage countries is always very
costly. It has been estimated that
tho average expense incurred by ex
ploring parties in Africa is over SI 5
a mile. It cost the English and
Algerian missionary societies over
$5,000 apiece for every missionary
they landed on (ho shores of Vic
toria Nyanza. Stanley's trip across
the Continent is said to havo cost
about SGO,000. Dr. Ilolub, who is
now working his way from South
Africa to the Great Lakc3, took
witli him an outlll that cost $25,000.
The money expended by most Im
portant expenditions has varied
from 810,000 to $10,000. An ex
plorer's force of porters and other
native assistants varies from about
forty to 250 souls. Mr. Stanley's
present expedition will include about
1,000 persons, and his traveling out
fit and trade goods have cost some
thing over 8100,000. It must be
remembered that he is not only try
ing to adequately supply tho needs
of his largo paity, but that he is
also carrying much clothing, ammu
nition and other supplies to the
several hundred persons who are
numbered in tho little retinue of
An exhibition was given in Eng
land the other day of the perfor
mance of a Maxim gun. It was a
part of the military outfit of the
Stanley expedition, and the explorer
and many prominent men watched
the performance of the weapon with
much satisfaction as it poured forth
a storm of about six hundred bullets
a minute. Here is an expedition
that is bound on a mission of human
ity, and wishes ill to no man. 'It
unfortunately happens, howevor, that
at no time since Burton and Spoke
penetrated to the Great Lakes, in
1858, have times been so troublous
in Central Africa as they arc now.
In Uganda aud the region around it,
where Stanley said eleven years ago
he had traveled as securely as in
Europe, the powerful despot
M'wanga has, within the past two
years, killed many thousands of peo
ple. It is said that in one campaign
last year he killed 10,000 soldiers of
his noithern neighbor, the King of
Unyoro. Ho is the avowed enemy
of tho whites, one of whom ho has
murdered, two he has enslaved, and
the others who were in his power ho
has expelled fiom his country.
If Stanley is not able by peacc
ablo means to open the road to
Wadclal, if he cannot buy the favor
of the ruler of Uganda, ho must dc-.
fend the lives of his party and by
force, if needs bo, fulfill tho mis
sion he is sent to perform. It is
right that ho be supplied with tho
best appliances of military att. It
is believed that the man who has not
been excelled by any African ex
plorer in the tact and forbearance
he has displayed in his dealings
with the natives may bo trusted to
use these appliances only if necessity
compels their use. Among the
Europeans who will accompany Mr.
Stanley is one who is specially quali
fied to handle the Maxim gun.
One of Mr. Stanley's servants
will be a boj' in his teens, who was
among a lot of little slaves that the
explorer bought of the Arabs three
years ago. The slaves were starv
ing, and Stanley bought the boys for
a few cotton handkerchiefs, and dis
tributed thorn among the white
stations along the Congo. These
lads arc all from tho Aruwlml river
region, and speak languages which
none of the white men on the Congo
have yet acquired. If Mr. Stanley
takes t)ie Congo route, as he desires
to do, it is very possible that he will
ascend the Aruwimi river to reach
Emin Pasha. If, when he reaches
tho Congo, ho decides to take this
course, ,t is his intention to collect
these boys, as he goes up the river,
and. make them useful to him as jn
terprotois and peacemakers among
their kindred of tho Aruwimi tribos,
It was his belief when ho bought
their freedom and distiibutcd theso
boys along tho river to be educated
in tho while man's aits, that by so
doing ho was securing so many
strong "ijLiicl fajthful nativo helpers
for his Congo enterprise. It is pro
bable that ho little imagined that tho
next time he visited the spot wherp
he freed thorn from the shackles of
tho Arab slave driver, theso boys,
wpuld havo been doing well, would
bo nbo to rpndcr him services of
almost jncalouttbp yajue. N. Y.
