The Much Exploitedn Assouan Dam
Across the River Nile V? ill Jiiave
Little Effect in Increasing tbe
Production of Cotton in
That the much exploited Assouan
dam across the Nile- will have little
or no effect in stimulating cottc:c pro
duction in Ejypt, as has been claimed
for-It, is the assertion of a gentleman
who probably knows more about Egypt
and E?vtian conditions than any man
in the United States
This gentleman is Cope Whitebouse,
who is row in Washington In connec
tion wlih what is known as the Lake
Morris project;, in which he is inter
ested, and which has attracted the at
tention of the governments of the
United States, Great Britian and
? EGYPTIAN COTTON GBO WING.
"In 1894," said Mr. Whitehonse, in
discussing the matter a day or two
ago, "American cotton growers were
told that there was an immense area
of abandoned land, admirably adopted
to cotton cultivat oo, lying between
the cultivated aeotion cf the delta and
Mt dlteiranean. In 1887, the late John
Oardwoll, of Houston, then consul
general at Cairo made an elaborate
report on the condition and nrospects
of the country, as a whole. Id treat
ing of cotton, Mr. Card well said that
little of that staple was produced
prior to the time w en the trade of
ports in the cotton-arrowing states was
cut cff by the bkccade during the
civil war. E(jypt4ao8 then began to
bend their energies, to supply; so far
as lay in their po^er, some of the re
sultant deficit. One dollar a pcuod
was a great incentive, at.d the cultiv
ation of cotton in the Nile valley be
came general. In 1880 1887, the total
cultivated area of Ejvpo was estima
ted bv him at 4 498,520 acres, with
826,114 acres of cotton in lower E^ypt,
and less than 50 000 acres to tue
south of Carlo. Oily 2 -1-4 per cent
of the population was engagtd in cot
ton culture. The cotton crop was then
a sort of by-prcduct of the general
agricultural operations, being grown
for export after abundant provision
had been made for a food supply of
rice, Indian corn, barley, beans, wheat
to the value of 813,000,000. etc. Sug
ar cane land in upper E^ypt was
worth 850 an acre.
BTTMULUB OF BRITISH INFLUENCE.
' The Egyptian cotton was used in
the United States in the manufacture
of cotton velvets or plushes, princi
pally. It could never compete with
American sea island cotton at 30 or
35 cents for fine threads, nor with tbe
average quality of Texan grovtoh^on
account of the price. The quantity
was also obvi usi.' limited to the
neighborhood of a mi li in acres, so
lcng as there wai no government in
terference with the food supply. But
when the British took possession of
the ministry of public works and of
finance, in 1863-1884, the cotton crop
became the end and aim nf all their
administrative energies. They forced
the farmers to abandon rice so that
tbe water might be used for cottoD,
and by practically abolishing the im
portation of fresh seed and the substi
tution of a native seed, known- as
''mit afifi.i'.the quantity was inoreas
ed and the quality lowered to a point
at which it could be used in the Eag
lish mills. At a later period, a reduc
tion was made in the area allotted to
sugar cane. Egyptian sugar, in beau
tiful yellow crystals, was sent to
France to be used with beet sugars,
beiDg conveyed in French steamers,
while tbe cotton went in British ves
sels to English and Scotch mills.
GREAT PLAN FOR IRRIGATION.
It was in 1887 that Mr. Cardwell
to<. k cognizance of Mr. Whltehouse's
work. In his report, he seid that
"the curious historical and scientific
researches of a citizen of the United
States had unfolded a huge plan of ir
rigation, known to tbe ancients, and
the present Egyptian government,
after at first turning a deaf ear to
his proposition*, seems at this time
disposed to proffo by this man's phil
sophy." But he added a warning
that benefits would not be realized
"unless foreign power again establish
ed decay." Under the head "A Grand
Sobeme," he then described Mr.
Whitehouse's Like Morris prr j >cted.
In the eary part of 1882, Mr.
Whitebouse visited E^ypt and went
i .to the dpsert, where he found a val
ley corresponding in shape, depth and
position to that which he had tcuod
depicted on a map copied nearly 500
years before from a more anolent map
drawn more than 1 200 years before
that time. It. was by the orb of tbii
valley, with a canal about 8 miles ii
leDgth leadi^e off from the flooded
area of the Nile about 70 miles up
?t^?tt? f om Cairo that it was expect.
... 1 >o double the available supply of:
ater during the period known as low
"Although the great African river
looms long and huge on the map, f r
more than three months every year it
ceases to discharge any water into the
Mediterraenan. Hence, before there
could be any increase in cotton culti
vation it was necessary to store flood
water, and the amount proposed to
be stored by Mr. Whitehou?e was 3,
000,000,000 cubic vards. Tbis could
have been obtained from t-.he Riijan
valley, with a depth of 220 feet and
a surface area of 250 square miles, bv
allowing the Nile to ral*e the level of
the proposed lake to that of the In-1
updation in tbe adjacent valley, and |
then closing the sluice gates, to be
opened in March. As the Nile rises
f-bout 20 feet, it was, and 1b, Mr.
Whitebouse'r opinion that this differ

NO DANGER TO AMERICAN COTTON. ,
V'J take much interest in this ques
tion," wrote Mr. Card well In bib re
port. "I desire to see the scholarly
efforts and the persistent researches
of one of my countrymen succeed; to
see American mind do good as a coun
terbalance to harm done by European
But years have elapsed and> the
swamps and sand strewn regions of
the delta remain as tbey were when
the Texas man was consul general at
Cairo and for 1,700 years before that,
although the scorpoin infested and
hyena haunted depths of the ''region
of Gehenna" have been traversed,
measured and explored ?y a score of
experts employed by the Egyptian
government, or representing (scientific
societies of Europe and the United
"While the scc3es8ful carrying of
the prtject wculd obviously have a
wounderfully stimulating iffect on
cotton growing in E,'ypt,"said Mr.
WbitehouBe in discussing this phase
of the case, "the cotton growers of
tbe south need not fear that a single
acre will be added to Egypt's cotton
area through mviff trts for at least
five years. In 1891 and again in 1894,
it seemed c -itiin that the work would
be undertaken at once. Ia 18S8 a
contr""*. was made for a reservoir aam
at th? st cataract; and even so well
informtd a representative of the
United States as Hon. E. C. PenQeld,
appointed by President Cleveland
ventured the prediction that 1 G00,
000 ices would be added before 1900
with an increase in the agricultural
output of at least 20 Der cent.
THE DAII NOT A SUCJESS.
"Butth b : expectations have proven
to, be baseiesB. The dam Itself is a
well a mile aud a quarter in length
Tne English engineers who designed
it as a private speculation for an E ig
lish company declared that it would
offer no obstruction to the high Nile,
but that the flood would pass as freoly
through tbe sluiceways as a river
through the piers of a bridge. On
August 8, last, whon the reservoir
should have been empty, the Nile had
headt d up over 30 feet and was tear
ing through 140 passages, about 40
to 60 feet in length, and 7 tr> 21 in
width, at a rite of more than 50 mile*
an hour. Deep crevices had developed
on the downstream side, and it was
necessary to construct buttresses in
great haste. It will take at least. wo
years to complete these and other re
"The cotton crop has been Increas
ed by tbe transfer of sugar cane land
cotton cultivation," continued Mi.
Whitehouse, "but tbe official reports
show that the crops before 1898, when
the contract for the dam was signed,
have actually exceeded those raised
since its completion. There has been
a loud outcry to the effect that tbe
whole tcbeme was a gigantic swindle;
that a group of E gllsh speculators,
of whom Sir Earnest Castel was the
principal, quietly acqured over 1,000,
000 acres, at prices ranging from the
government registration fee of 13
cents per acre up to 810 and 820, ana
then agreed to build the dam in order
to raise prices and enable them to un
load the land on the French and E ig
Hsu public during the ftur years the
construction work was in progress.
E?en Lord Oromer appears to have
oecome alarmed at . tbe impending
crash. The price of the lands was
forced up to nea^y 8500 an acre, and
wden tbe speculators have unloaded
bbe ground could not be remunerative
to the cultivator at any such prices.
WILL NOT EFFECT PRICE.
"But to return to the cotton ques
tion," said Mr. Whitehou?e lnconclu
slon, "the American crrowera have
nothing to fear. The E^vDtlan crop
of this year Is estimated to bl no larg
er than that of 1897 8 or about 1.260,

partment for all the papers relating
to Mr. Whitehou8e's operations in

worth is the length of time they have the confidence of
the people. The efficacy of S. S. S. has been thoroughly
proven by experience, and so successful has it been that
today it is the best known and most widely used blood
remedy in the world. For diseases such as Rheumatism, Catarrh, Scrofula,
Skin Diseases, Sores and Ulcers, Contagious Blood Poison, and othertroubles
due to an impure and poisoned condition of the blood, no remedy acts so
promptly and thoroughly as does S. S. S., and thousands throughout the
country, cured of such diseases, are daily recommending it to others simi

FORTY YEARS OF CURES. S. S. S. is a blood purifier of the highest
order, containing properties necessary to cure blood troubles of every character,
and which make it the greatest of all tonics. It goes into the blood and drives
out any and all impurities, and makes this stream of life strong and healthy,

herbs and barks, chosen for their healing, purifying and building-up proper
