THE ARGUS, FONDA'S. JULY 24. 1S!K1.
i THE HONOR OF DE LES3EPS
; A Compitriot of tha I uUen Frenchman
Kay I't.iin Things About Him.
A French merchant who came to
this country less than five years ago,
and who has kept in touch with cur
rent events in Franco, bays that tbo
reports of a protest by the French
people against the sentence imposed
on Ferdinand de Losscps are entirely
unfounded. Ho asserts that the
French newspapers are protesting
against the verdict of the court, says
the New York Sun, but that in this
case, the press, instead of reflecting
public opinion, Is trying to form it.
"You must not forget," said ho,
"that almost every editor and pro
prietor of a Parisian newspaper came
in for a part of the pillage of the peo
ple's savings by accepting fancy
prices as bri) cs for suppressing news.
These men were, at lcat morally,
accomplices, and their opinion of the
sentence, therefore. is obviously
biassed, and consequently of no ac
count "The real opinion wo want is that
of the people, of tho 10 t.0 ) bourgeois
who have been a' ost ruined by this
immonse jobbery, and of the families
of those, more numerous than ono
would think, who havo been driven
to suicide. '1 heir opinion will be
found very dilierent. These men
cannot find words violent enough to
assail tho r.amo of l'o Lcsseps, nor
any punishment t o severe to bo ap
plied to Lim. .-.n.l their opinion, in
spito of what the . rench newspapers
of to-day may .-ay. will be that of
history, for when H,'ht shall have
been thrown on the truth concerning
the Suez ca:u;i. .; it has been on the
dealings at !'u:ia:!ia. Uo Lessens will to
classed among the greatest robbers
Aof modern times. '
"As far as tho Suez canal is con
cerned the en.1, in ty have iustiticd
tho mans, 1.- t'ao timo bein. at
least. But it is nevertheless true
that as a result (r tiie Suez thefts,
which were even greater than thoso
of the Panama, the tonnagj tax,
which ought not lo have been moro
than two francs, is now ten francs
for vessels passing through the canal.
Tho way in which le l.-sseps came
to bo connected with the construc
tion of the Suez canal was. to ?-ay
tho least of it. peouliar. Napoleon
I. wanted to tittack F-ngiand through
India, After laak-ng himself master
of Fgypt, and he conceived the idea
of piercing tl.e isthmus, lie sum
moned a commission of engineers
from Franco with loii-re and
Laplace at tho head of it. When the
engineers arrived in Kirvptand besran
their investigations, they found
j trail's ,f tho old canal built by
I Pharaoh, and they adopted the old
lin in the plan which they ma;le for
i Napoleon. It was estimated that tho
1 i.-ti.inus could bo pierced for ":). t !),-
O i l francs, and the emperor ordered
that the work should be begun. Short
ly afterward, as is well known, ho
was forced to return to France, Kle
bcr was assassinated, tho course of
political affairs in tho empire was
changed, and tho work at Suez
came to a standstill.
"Somo years later, in the reign of
Louis Philippe Ferdinand Do Lcsseps
was appointed French consul at
Cairo, and by a curious streak of
luck ho discovered ono day, in the
local archives, the plan for the Suez
canal which had been made by Mongo
and Laplace. He began his life as a
pirate by appropriating these plans,
foreseeing that somo day he should
be able to turn them to his advantago.
AVhen the second empire was inaugu
rated Napoleon III. married Eugenie
de Montijo, who was a cousin of Do
Lesseps. This made an opening for
the latter, and ho submitted hi9
plans to Napoleon 111., with an offer
to build the canal for 100,000,000
francs. With the assistanco of hia
cousin, tho empress, and of the
khedive, Ismail Pasha, who came in
for a commission of several millions
it was possible to borrow 60"),000,OJO
francs. The wildcat methods that
were employed to raise this sum
have become .matters of history. Less
than onertenth of tho money, how
ever, was actually expended in tho
construction of the canal, almost all
the work beinii done by the khodivo's
fellahin, whose only wages consisted
of stripes from cowhide whips. Tho
other nine-tenths found its way into
the pockets of Do Lesseps, of tho
Montijo family, of the khedive and
of other favorites of tho empress.
"The success of tho canal has kept
those stories out of print. But when
the memoirs of the principal charac
ters of those times shall be published,
after the usual delays in such cases,
and when the truth shall have been
fully told, history will class Do
Losseps with eueh men as Cartouche
Do Madrin, and make him worse, per
haps, for tho latter never stolo mon
ey, but be usurped reputations and
built up his renown on a foundation
laid by others.
History of Tobaeco.
Tobacco was noted by Columbus on
his very first voyage. It was first
cultivated by John Bolfe in 1G12, and
as early as 1619 a lot of 20.000 pounds
was shipped to England. In 1732 a
tobacco factory was started on tho
Kappahannock river, and about 1769
the first south of tho James river was
built in Mecklenburg county. In
1745 the exports from Virginia
amounted to 42,841 hogsheads of
about 1,000 pounds each, and in
creased till 1753, after which there
was a decline until after tho revolu
tion. It is now grown in most of the
southern states with Kentucky In

One of the incidents that illustrate
