Korti, Feb. 10 Colonels Wilson
and "Wortley, -with the expedition to
Khartoum, arriTed hwe to-day. They
made the journey from Gubat in four
days, and bring news of General Gor
don's death. One of the paslms
among General Gordon's forces
marched the garrison to tho side of
the town nearest Omdurman, saying
a rebel attack was expected nt that
point Meantime another traitorous
pasha opened the gates at the other
end and allowed El Mahdi's troops
to enter, aud they easily captured
the town. General ordon was stab
bed while leaving the government
Following are additional details of
the killing of General Gordon and
the fall of Kharteum: At day-break,
on the dav of capture, which is vari
ously stated at tho 26th and 27th of
January General Gordon's attention
was attracted by a tremendous tu
mult in the streets. He left the so
called palace or government building
in which he had made his headquar
ters, to ascertain the causo of tho
disturbance, and just as he reached
the street was stabbed in tho back
and fell dead. The tumult was
caused by El Mahdi's troops, who
had gained access to the interior of
the town through treachery and who
were soon id completo possession of
the place, including the citadel. A
fearful massacro of tho garrison fol
lowed. Tho scenes of slaughter aro
described as surpassing the Bulga
rian atrocities and rivaling the worst
horrors of Sepoy. Panic-stricken
Egyptians were captured in flight
and put to death with the most fiend
ish tortures. Some wore transfixed
with spears and left to bleed to death.
Most of the victims were mutilated
in a most horrible manner. Eyes
were gouged out, noses slit, and
tongues torn out by the roots. In
many cases mutilated parts of vic
tims' bodies were thrust into their
mouths while . they were still
living. The massacro included many
non-combatants and many Egyptian
women wero subjected to the most
shameful indignities. More than 100
womeu and young girls were given
over to El MaBdi's followers, to be
used as slaves. After the slaughter
many Arabs were seen rushing about
(Its-. ninAAn ml i 41iA liAfllr 9 1 fw at '
tains impaled upon spears. The next
night was spent in a saturnalia of
blood and debauchery.
Since the capture of Khartoum, El
Mahdi has repaired the fortifications
and made the placo well nigh im
pregnable. He has made it his per
manent headquarters, and is said to
havo an abundance of guns, small
arms and ammunition.
Both of Colonel Wilson's steamers j
were wrecked owing to the treachery
of the pilots, who will be court mar
tialed. Loxdox, Feb. 11. Tha Daily News
appears this morning in mourning
for Gordon, and publishes the follow
ing from Gakdul: "Natives -who es
caped from Khartoum say Gordon
was killed while in the act of leaving
his house to rally the faithful troops.
The latter were cut down to a man,
and for hours the best part of the
town was a scene of merciless slaugh
ter, not even women and children be
ing spared. All the notables were
killed except the treacherous pashas
and their followers."
All the morning papers have their
columns bordered with black, as a
token of the. grief which was univers
ally felt over Gordon's fate. Some
papers confine the mourning emblem
to tho editorial page, but in most of
them column rules aro reversed on
all the pages.
The fletcs says: "The ago of chiv
alry is revived again in Gordon's his
tory, and the whole world thrills with
passionate grief at this Christian war
Tho Standard alone refuses to be
lieve that Gordon is dead, and clings
to the shadow of z hope that he may
bo a prisoner or may havo escaped to
Is Cleveland's Life In Danger?
New York, Feb. 10. Among the
WorltTs city gossip is the follewing:
Not less than three gentlemen during
the current week have spoken in a
merely incidental way of the personal
danger which they conceive sur
rounds President-elect Cleveland.
One was Gen. Edward M. McCook,
and another ex-Postmaster Gen.
James, both Republicans. James
spoke very freely, and said : "It is n
delicate subject, but it is one I have
a very decided opinion upon, and I
havo no hesitation in expressing it
for publication. I believe tho Star
Bouters wero responsible for Gar
field's death, and I havo not changed
In Lire Worth LItIbp
Some of the metaphysicians are
now discussing the queation.and say
ing a good many things too deep for
ordinary understanding. To make
life really worth living in the best
way, the first requirement is a good
digestion and a healthy circulation
of blood. The man who wishes some

is in low spirits "because his digestion
is bad and his .blood poor. Dr Myers,
of bheboygan. Wis., says, "I recom
mend Bown's Iron Bitters for general
I debility, loss of appetite and want of
strength. Take this valuable tonic
and make life worth lving.

There is nothing that keeps an an

seems to sharpen their appetites'so
well as a judicious use of salt.
The career of El Mahdi rvads like'
a romance of ancient nines. In some '
points it bears a striking respmllncr-'
to that of tho great founder of tbej
Mo.,Iem faith. That a petty shril;.;
a fanatic prii-dt. -.lumld be able to in-.
stigate n war oi fornmlaolf propor

opposing spears and scimetars to the
most perfected repeating rifles and
Gatlingguus, would have been im
possible had not the prophet's
schemes been aided bv the mo3t in
tense religious fanaticism.
As with all other leaders of his
kind, the early life of El Mahdi is in
volved in obscurity, and it is prob
able that a veil of mystery has been
purposely thrown about it. The most
absurd stories have been told about
his birth and education, one being
that he was an American negro.
The probable truth is that El Mah
di's real name is Mohammed Aohmed ;
that he is the sou of a petty Arab
sheik, who was brought up to be fakir
or mendicant priest It is said that
when of age he retired to an island
named Aba, in tho White Nile, and
long lived thore in a life of asceticism
and religious meditation. Such an
enech is alwavs placed by tradition in
the lifo of all founders of religious
movements. Confucius, Guatama
and Mohammed are all credited with
iuat such a period of retiremont.
"When El Mahdi had prepared him
self in this way for the role of prophet,
he began to gam influence among
neighboring sheiks, the heads of
predatory tribes, and, it is said, es
pecially acquired great power by
means of his martial relations to them.
An ancient prophecy was brought
forward or invented which seemed
to point to Mohemmed Achmed by
tho most positive signs of race, tribe,
date of birth and personal appear
ance, as the prophet by whom the
power of Islam was again to be raised
to its former glory, the sultanate re
stored to the orthodox line of de
scent and the power of the "infidels"
Gradually the False Prophet col- j
lected tho tribes about his banner,

A New Organization.
New York, Feb. 10. A dispitch
from London says: An organization
to be known as the National Inde
pendent Association, has been formed,
and it is stated will receive tho sup
port of mauy influential aud repre
sentative men. Its objects include
the upholding of the privileges of the
throne, the sovereign, however, to
live in England, Ireland and Scot
land alternately and.thus giving the to
all sections the benefits to be derived
from the presence of royalty; the pro
motion of national or home trading
before resorting to the formation of
foreign alliances; free trade in arti
cles of food only; An increase of the
British fleet, in order to afford better
protection to commerce, and an effort
to promote an alliance with tho
United States, but ouo which would
havo for its sole object the repulsion
of an attempt by a foreign foe to in
vade any English-speaking country.
Imagine an area about the size of
the United States, rich in soil, teem
ing with natnral wealth, traversed in
every direction by great navigable
rivers, and sustaining a swarming
population, and wo get a faint idea
of tho Congo question. The Congo
region is a very rich plum, a second
India, in fact, and England's rivals,
which have seen their neighbor gob

not mean to let her repeat history in
