idea of the present position of alburn.
SIR JOHN tune's VIKW.
At Ssvan Otks, near London, in a
houee full of African curiosities, I
iouud 8lr John Kirk, B-ltiah Oonnil
General to 'M t bar. After a little
talk about Euiin Pacba, who is per
sonally known to Kirk and for whom
he bus the highest admiration, Sir
John gave me an idea of thj condi
tion of affairn on the Zanzibar const.
lie said: "Eailn Pacha does not
ant to loava bis Central African
Province, lie oould at any time flgbt
hie way out to Zanzibar, but to do this
he would be compelled tn leave be
hind all the Egyptian officials with
their families. Theie men would be
at once killed, and the Province then
would relapse into barbatlsin under
tbe control of tbe slave traders.
"Emin is a man of (iordjn'a stamp,
and will be killed with bis men rather
than deport them, lie is a very re
markable man. Cat off entirely from
European support, Burrnunded on all
" sides hy powerful enemies, he rules
several millions of native with sush
vfgir and Justice that they will light
for him aven alter they are naked
and demote of alLeupplies.
"Ho fir he han beaten back the
Mahdi's forcea from the Noith and.
. prevented serious attacks by th- slave
traders from the Ewt and South. His
provinre is a very rich country, but bo
uaciviliied that he collect) bis rev
sane in ivory, which lie la forced to
aell to the Arab trtxlara In ordyr to ob
tain European goods.; In the midst
of such a country, with fighting on all
aides of him, he Las taught the oe jroos
to weave cloth, make shors and enki
vale tobacco, lie has also made a
natural biBtory collection of great
eclentifiu value. In one of bin latest
lotU rs to me be any he is out of sug ir
and tra and all Europeun supplies,
and sliort even of ammunition, but hit
aBkcu only for aranio to enable him
to can tin in bis uulural history cjllec
tion. MCST PAY ULACKMAIU
"After his ammunition 1h exlmr.nt
UmI Eiuin will be unable to keep back
the Mahdi's forces. The region near
him is toi p tpu'ous to euabie liiui to
fUht muskeM and epenra whhcpoius
alone. As It is now his 4001) myro
troops a"- mniuly rireased in Bkirn, It
would be imp;)vsihle for a military
force to fight its way thiough to Eiiiiii.
An aimed cunvin, such as thit
Tliomiron need in going through tins
country, ccu'd e.iaiiy reach Euiin, but
only by paying b'arkroail to the na
tives. A'ri au blackmail of tail type
is mn:h the oarne ibiug at your

filed in While Plains in 18 )2, subse
quent small leases for parts of tbe
laud were made to aovorai parties for
ninety-nine years. Then the old
honsa and lands we e converted into
buatuo s places, and in 1800 the in
habitants inorporated the place into
the vlllaite of Port Chester. The land
on which tha village stands ia valued
now at 15,000,000 to $.'0,100,000. In.
the year 1800 the leaf iu the Register's
otlics containing tbe record of the
original lease was torn out by some
unknown person, the only evidence
of it being in tbe index. The matter
was put into the hands of an attorney,
who filially gota clew and left yester
day for a small town in Alabama,
where, it is claimed, the identical
