From Alexandria to the Pyramids d
h
April 81000e
Editor of the News 0
I mailed lily last letter to the
News ut Alexandria When our u
ship landed there one thing at v
tracted my attention I had not seen
seen any where else and that was a
the different nationalities there l
represented At first I thought a
they were women mostly of the t
negro race Most of them had on il
dresses like women wear in our c
country except a peculiar tuck at d
the ankle which reminds one t
more of American bloomers than
any thing elsea louse robe over 1i
them almost rs long ns dresses
They wore red turbans with black t
frigTurks Egyptians Greeks u
Italians all moru or less dark col 1
ored It
oredOur
Our boat landed at the docks p
and we didI1U have to contend 0
with boatmen to get to the shore a
at other places These people c
are not as persistent as the Ital c
ians We soon met David Moses
who could speak English very weHc
and he soon informed us that hew
was a dragoman and would con c
duct us to a good hotel which he S
did at 200 per diem for room C
and beds for six Wo were pleas
ed with our bargain selected a t
restaurant which we found cheap tl
and good meals That afternoon g
we saw Pompeiis Pillar which
of the to
one important things 0
seen there Then we drove up g
the canal with David Moses as our t
guide amid the blooming flowers 0
orange and palm trees to one oft
the prettiest gardens I have ever <
seen It was owned first by then
fedivo who irrigated and planted ro
all kinds of fruit trees in it It isI
laid off in beautiful walks and cir t
cles and fountains hero and theret
Here we saw our first bananas b
growing on low stalks that looke
good deal like flagblades Thes
stalks are large three or four in
of
ches in diameter They grow ill
of
bunches like we get them in Amer IJ
ica with small end pointing up 0
ward just the reverse of my ex c
pectation They are gathered ev e
ery morning and carried to mark
et The are cheap on the streets
We ate some nesters here They a
were larger than the wildgoose
1
plum and longer It is a newJ
fruit and very good We saw lem 1
on orange and date trees Wea
a
then drove through the principle g
streets of the city and then took a I
stroH through bazaars and market
places This was an interesting
sight to us as we had never seen a
any thing like it before Every
man seemed to be content watch
ing his goods and smoking his pipe
Alexandria is a city of 240000 I
inhabitants and the new part of
the town is uptodate in many
respects Electric cars and gaslights
Ther 1
buildings are all stone cemented
solidily on the outside and paint
ed in tinted pink white and yel
low The walls look clean and I
neat and the streets are paved
with stone some very narrow
some wide with here and there aJ
small parka statue and fount of
1
flowers The system of city gov
ernment is somewhat like our ci
tIes have a good police forceand
while the people drink a great
deal of wine and beer there is very
verya
little drunkenness seen on the
streets I think it would be much
better for our American drinkers
if they have to drink to use wine
and beer instead of whisky or
orr
the hotels here is as common as
milk in America All the mjlk
here is boiled and brought to the
IItable hot destroying the goaty
salr t
will help to destroy the goaty taste
of the butter
The next day April 2 we loft
fad r
Cairo a distance of 181 miles
The railroad runs along the cans 1
for some distance and through the
delta and from the time we ref t
Alexandria to our arrival in Cairo
Awas
was one grand panarama as good
as any circus to one who had nev
Qror been over that route It is a
rich fertile valley all the way and
interspersed with Bedouin villages j
villagesr
and all ancient modes of farming
The valley was alive with Bedouin
r Bedouit
farmers some plowing oxen milk IIJ
cows bnffalos all with onehan c
dIe plows a single crossstick IJ
handle forming foot and the beam
extending to yoke and only an
old fashioned bulltongue plow
After the ground is broken they l
use the hoe and fingers in culti
vating it They divide it into m
small fields or gardens and raise
all varieties of vegetables rice
wheat corn etc The donkey is
favorite animal in all this coun
try The camel is the favorite an ly
imal for carrying burdens We
could see in the distance great
droves of these animals The sys p
tem of irrigating from the Nile is
wonderful The canal from thetl
Nile furnish sufficient supply of h
water Then they raise it from
the subtrenches by water wheel S
usually run by single ox or cow
This machine they call sakieh
is simple and ancient one per he
pendicular wheel with a chain ofE
oldtime water pots fastened liketJ
chainpump This wheel hasa
cogs in it another horizontal onetl
cogs that look like wooden pinsI
with lever turned by the ox ort
cow This machine throws the of
water into the water ways that
carry it all over the countryi
in
Some places in the vicinity ofil
Cairo still use the old time bucket b
with pole and turn the water in
the ditch with foot So the sys j
tem of irrigation has not under
gone much change in 1000 years
We arrived at Cairo about 11 n
oclock a m and soon found a a
good hotel at satisfactory rates S
two dollars per diem We took
our meals out We were all surprised
that we could live so cheap in this
country Our rooms and fare did
not exceed 125 per day while in Cai
o a city of over 400060 inhabitants
That afternoon we spent in visiting
the tombs of the Marnoluks and
the citadel which is one of the oldest
buildings of importance here was
erected in 1166 by Salaheddin the
stone being taken from the Pyramids
Gireh Here we have the best view
the city and splendid views of the
pyramids and the whole country One
of the most outrageous masacrees oc
curred here in 1811 that history has
ever recorded Mohammed AH who
was the Kedive desired to destroy the
Memlooks who were a kind of Moham
adans but were very zealous and war
like and were giving the Kedive good
deal of annoyance So he planed to
have them come to the city of Cairo
and attend a festival or banquet They
gladly accepted the Invitation anti came
in the best style in soldier uniform
and mounted on fine horses They
were invited to visit the CItadelwhere
trap was set for them They march
ed through the gates of the paraplt
and were locked in and in a few min
utes 450 were murdered without warn
ing Eight hundred more were mur
dered in the city Only one nian es
caped He forced his horse to jump
the battlements When we entered
the Mosque were asked to put on sUp I
pers and we did so and walked on hoI
IV carpets One of McGarveys slip
pers came off a time or two and one of
the Arab attendants would run grab
his foot and tie it on again telling
him he must not let his foot touch the
floor holy place Mohammed AH
prayed here McGarvey asked him
what difference that made but the
Arab did not understand him
On the next day April 3 early in
the morning we started for the pyra
mids of Gireh We had arranged the
evening before with our dragoman to
provide donkeys for all of us to ride
We all mounted and away we went in
good speed feeling that we were going
Mt y
donkey was named Yankeedoodle and
he went the cavalry lope most of the
the
pyramids a distance of eight miles
We had a good deal of fun on the way
we
market day and we met trains of cam
els coming in loaded with hay and oth
er produce We also met a regiment
of Scotch soldiers the first we had
seen They are abate hearty look
ing men They wear no pants
but have waistcoats coming to theo h
knees and legings
We dismounted when we arrived at
the pyramids and prepared for climb
ing It looked a little scary to some
of us but when we found we had plen
ty of help we started up I had three
Arabs to help me two In front and one
nbehind to push We were all up in 20
M
t
minutes We stood 20 minutes and
came down in 20 minutes One of the
most magnificent views is presented
here I ever beheld The valley of the
Nile on the west with its springlike
appearance flowing north and extend
ing as far as the eye can see and on
the east the Libeon desert with its
mountains of sand running with the
Nile as far as our visions could see
We went inside and saw King and
Queens chamber I was so sore for
two days after my climb I could hard
navigate Will finish up this in my
next as the ship from Port Said has
landed at Joppa and I am out of pa
per My next will bo from Jerusalem
P S Arrived at Joppa through
trials and tribulations such as never
had before but we arc all well

WILL SUPPORT MR BRYAN
In a Washington dispatch to the
World Senator Henry M Teller of
Colorado is quoted as follows
I left the Republican party in 1896
because of its adoption of a platform c
favoring the gold standard I predict
ed then that it would follow it up by
establishing by law a gold standard if
it came into power This it has done
adding to it a provision that will prac
1
tically destroy the greenback and
treasury note and turn overto theI
banks the sole issue of paper money in
the United States
310NEY QUESTION NOT SETTLED
The financial question is not set
tled by the passage of what is called
the currency act and I believe that
will be a question of American politics
until such time as we shall secure a
proper bimetalic system If I had not
left the Republican party in 1896 1
certainly should have left it on the
passage of the gold standard bill of the
present session If Mr Bryan is nom
inated on a platform recognizing the
financial plank of the Chicago platform
of 1896 and I have no doubt he will be
I shall give him my hearty support
ADMIRES BRYAN
I believe he has a very much better
chance for success now than I believed
thinko
the American people have become bet
ter acquainted with the character and
none but fanatics believe there will be
any danger in his election
Personally 1 have a high regard for
Mr Bryan both as to his moral mall
ties and his great ability 1 may not
agree with him on some views but h e
is honest and if elected will make a
President that will not be controlled d
by cliques or caucuses or trusts
In Mr Bryan we will have an
American Administration such as this
republic of ours is entitled to

In spite of the boasted prosperity
arbor strikes continue in various parts
of tb C country The Republicans
claim credit for the prosperity they
atplead not guilty as to the labor strikes
Mark Hanna occasionally hits the
truth For instance he came close
to it when he remarked that the soon

be for the Republican party
