ELD ZT WILLIAMS LETTER E
s
From the Pyramids to JoppaII
April 0 1900 t
Editor of the News
a
I was writing up the pyramids k
when Imailedmy last letter andn
will complete the work in this one
One thing I observed in regard e
to the pyramids and that is youa
are deceived about the distance h
you are away from them and they e
aU look to be sharp on top buty
they grow on you as you approach a
them Cheops the largest one h
of 18acres and is
covers an area acres r
now 460 feet high and 80 feet
square on top and tapers in regu iI
lar order from the bottom While i
on top of this pyramid you are in h
eight of a wonderful history of Bi in
ble antiquityaud some unuttera e
ble impressions steal over one as t
he views from this summit of an tl
cient greatness and power Then tj
sweeps thQ broad majestic Nile e
that the ancients worshiped as a fJ
God and why not Did it not f
year by year spread its fructifying CI
arms and fill her valleys with CI
abundance their garners becom c
ing the source of supply for the
world a
As one stands entranced vis Sj
ions of ages pass before the minds 11
eye kingdoms flourish and pass
away cities flourish and decay S
obelisks towns
palaces temples s
and tombs alike crumble into dustSJ
SJ
mighty kings rulers and great p
men whose praises and fame have I
sounded with loudest blasts butSl
the echoes have died away anda
they are forgotten In sight is n
old Memphis the city of the Pha d
roes old Cairo and Heliopolis Sl
or the city of the Sun called On D
in the Book of Gen 4145 All
these can be seen from this sum f
mit As we dwell upon this vision fl
of the ages a baud of Ishmaelites a
come in sight with their long train t
of camels bearing the produce r
and products of other lands They
bring a lad along with them an
Issealite Time rolls on and the J
young Isrealite becomes the firstr
ruler of the land and is known as is
an interpreter of dreams It comes c
into his knowledge the approach t
of a famm and cribs are built and t
corn is stored away Then there c
comes some men down ten in allV
from Caanau to buy corn They
are received by Joseph and he C
makes himself known to them t
and very soon Jacob is made glad d
and meets the king and the laud 11
of Goshen is settled up and things 1
go well for a while They are i
made slaves persecution follows I
and years of hardship A child is
found in the rushes He is reared i
in the of God for
up providence a t
leader Isreal marches out with a t
high land Pharo essaying to fol 1
low is drowned him and his ar
my in the Red Sea The scenes t
of this history are largely in sight E
from this summitE
After we left the pyramids we c
visited the Sphinx which is only J
a short distance away Only a
portion of it is exposed but it isc
immense It has the face ofa
man and the body of a lion It
was originally 66 feet high face
is 18 ft 8 inches wide 128 feetI
long mouth 7 feet Wo then
went on donkeys to the pyramids
of Sakara but as they are all so
much alike when you have seen
one you have seen all Some sev
en or eight are seensome In ru
ins We then viewed the cata
combs of Sakara three in all
The first is Tih which is very in
teresting contains hieroglyphics
all over the walls and some mum
mies have been taken out and put
in museums at Cairo The second
one is called The Tombs of the
Sacred Bulls There are twenty
four tombs or sarcophagus in cave
at
like opening and they are cut out
of fine granite large enough to pu t
a sacred bull in The granite
caskets are still here but the bulls
arbg 0 n eperhaps resurrected
These people thought more of their
bulls than we do of Presidents
The third one wo visited was dis
covered in 1893 and from it have
been taken some interesting mum
miesLeaving
Leaving the catacombs we pass
ed through old Memphis but lit
tie is left there to mark the place
of the once famous city The
statue of Barneses the First and
d
Second are both there but will
soon be removed to some of the
m seums
museumsWe
We got back to the R R sta
tion about sun down the same day
and were glad to give up our don
keys for we had ridden some 25l
miles on saddles not suited to
Americans The horn is the long
est part of the saddle They keep 1
fellow spread out too much in
his hips I have not fully recov
ered from the soreness produced
yet Of course climbing the pyr a
amids helped some None of us
have been anxious for a donkey
ride since
The next day April 4th we vis =
ited the Museum of Gizeh which a
west of Cairo proper It is per s
haps one of the most interesting tIn
n the world as well as the most c
extensive We mummies
saw un r
tilwe tired out of seeing One of
the moat remarkable Ino
things no c
ticed was the well preserved tiaskt
ets of wood that had been taken
from the catacombs They look m
fresh and most of the lately dis
covered ones have the photo of the
corpse painted on the lid of the t
caskett
We visited the Island of Rhoda I
and the old Coptic church the
same day and the place where
Moses was found in the little ark
The next day we left Cairo for
Suez and the Red Sea We took
sail boat that day and visited the
springs of Moses the first watert
place after he crossed the Red Seaa
There are about seven of them
some very large others more like
well The water is salty and
not suitable to drink The next
day we spent on the other side of
sea where they come through the is
mountain into the valley WeR
went about 20 miles down and
found a place suitable and satis
factorily returning at G oclock in
fine gale and enjoying one ofO
the most delightful rides of my
lifeI
The next day we came to Port
Said by rail along the Suez canal
This canal connects the Mediter t
ranean Sea with the Red Sea and
s about 90 miles in length This
canal is of great importance to the
a
mercantile world From London
to Bombey it saves a distance of
over 5000 miles Over 4000
vessels pass through annually
The income from it is over 4000
000 annually From Port Said
we took an Egyptian steamer Sun
day night at 7 oclock for Joppa
and arrived there about 10 a m
next day to find Joppa a bad land
ing The sea was very rough and
we waited until 8 p m before the
little boat ventured out and then
it was dangerous but we got out
all safe But the boatmen and
tough fellows t They agreed to
bring us a shore for 2 franks each
and before we landed they wanted
ten each and demanded the mon
ey but we did not bluff and push
ed oh and got off with 2I franks
or 5c each Joppa is a hard place
Here we saw Simon the tanners
house where Peter had his vision
on the housetop Also the house
where Dorcus was raised from the
deadAt
At this place there are some fine
orange groves
We came to Jeruselem the next
day Tuesday April 10 just one
month from the time we started
from New York We are keeping
very well and cheerful to be BO far
from home We are now over
7000 miles from old Montpelier
but I trust the good Lord will per
mit us to get back all right again
My next will be from Jerusalem
We start from here on our camp
ing tour of 18 days next Tuesday
and end at Beyront the 4th of May
and then our journey will be home

Mr Hannahs Bluff
Senator Hannah in outlining the
probable action of the Republican
National Convention declares that it
will take a bold stand on the new is
sues and that it will overwhelming
ly supported by the vote cast for the
Republican ticket in November
This popular support of the Repub
lican ticket js somewhat doubtful It
Senator Hannahs party takes that
bold stand on certain issues which
would be consistent with its acts Such
stand would necessitate the Repub
lican partys pronouncement against
the American Constitution violated
by the Republican passage of the Por
to Rican tariff bill It would force the
adoption of a resolution openly promi
sing protection to the trusts assessed
to a total of 830000000 for Republican
campaign uses It would compel the
repudiation of the Declaration of In
dependence declared by the Republi
can party as inapplicable to the situa
tion in the Phillippines It would
make inevitable a public announce
ment of the definite abandonment of
the Monroe Doctrine It would lead
to a confession of the Republican de
termination to annex Cuba in viola
tion of our pledge for Cuban national
independence
Senator Hanna is mistaken in believ
ing that the American people would
support such a platform He is mista
ken in asserting that his party will
take a bold stand on these issuesa
stand in keeping with its real inten
tions What it will do will be tododge
all these issues and try to fool the
people into reelecting Mr McKinley
Then will come the line of action in
dicated abovea mappedout course
which the Republican party dare not
avow to the people but upon which it I
determined all the sameSt Louis
