Ho has, howevor, not yet had a full opportunity ot ex hibiting tho expected spirit. What ho may do In tho tuturo, It tho present war results In ro storing lilm to power, I cannot say," "Aro tho natlvo Egyptians peaceful and In dustrious, ns n rulot '' asked THE OltlTIC. "They nro, and besides being sobor nnd In dustrious. thoT aro thoroughly down-trodden. My sympathies nro certainly with them In tho present strugglo. nnd If I was thoro I should certainly fight with Arabl TasIia's Army." "Whon you left Fgypt, In 1877, wore thoro any Indications ot tho present conflict!" askod the reporter. "At that tlmo thero wns Nothing to HutrKCil U10 l'rcficiit Con lllct.

"W by was that I" askod Tun Ontiio, "Well you see, tho coBt of thoso general fesll vols aro paid by tho ioor, Impoverished peo ple, who nro taxed by districts, by order of tho Khedive, who makes a call for nnnmountot money sufficient to meet tho oxponso: tho nmount is then npportlouod among tho sov oral Pashas commanding districts, whoso duly It Is to collect their apportionment nt once.

"what nro tho qualities ot Egyptian soldlors?'1 "They remind mo very much ot Russian sol. dlcrs, both of whom stand In torrlblo droad ot their ofilcers. W by, they would .IiiHt Ah Soon Cut Their TlirontH as disobey ono ot tholr superiors. I don't think much ot them os soldiers. Thoy aro mcro machines, and possess no qualities savo to ent, sleep, nud drink without tbo slightest degrco ot valor or Intelligence." "How about tho ofilcers?" "They aro better, being mostly natlvo Egyp tians, who aro oduuitid at military schools In Berlin, bt. Cyr, France, V tcnna,'and other Eu ropean cities. Nearly allot thu officers Bpoak French and somo ct them English. Whllo far superior to tho privates, the onlcors aro de cidedly Interior to European ofilcers lnovcry rtBpect."

"Tho best nrm of tho Egyptian military service," eontlnucd tho Colonel, "Is tho Infan try: tho worst Is tho artlllory, whllo tho cav alry Is but middling under tho most favorablo circumstances, lu tho present war, which will doubtless bo v. aged Inland, tho Infantry will piny In tho roost Important role, on account ot tho sandy naturo of tho country, which ren ders It Almost lmposslblo to drng guns or per mit ot raf Id movi incuts by horsemen. Whoro tho country Is cultivated It Is rich, but whero barrenness prevails It Is barren lndood." "W bat kind ot guns aro lu uso In Egypt?" nsked tho reporter. "Kruppguns for tholr light nrtlllory, and old fushtoiicd heavy ordnnnco which was maao from lb.IO to 18 10. Their heavy guns aro good to llro at suurlso nnd to saluto tho Khodlvo on stato occasions, but worthless for war pur poses. I would rather havo ton ot their heavy guns llrcd nt a leglmeut under my command thanono l'nrrott gun 1 experienced tho latter during tho lato unpleasantness. Tho English need havo no fear of tho Egyptlins' heavy guns." "Is Iho Egyptian staff, on which you served, compoci.il ot natlvo onlcors?" askod Iho reportir. "Oli, no. Tho staff Is mado up of nit nation alities Americans, English, lrench, Swedes, etc. Tho Americans 01 tho staff, v. hen I was lbere, were all ex Confederates, except my self. An American inalor on the staff died ot shccrvvnutthortly beforo I left for America.

It it is not paid. our Highness, lwlUlnkotho horeos ot of your currlngo on tho boulevard to morrow." Tho nut day tho paymaster called at my lodglnss and Ecttlcd up tho account." "How is tho Interior In regard to forts and fortifications?" osked thoroporior. "Cairo has no torts," answoroil tno Colonel, "except tbo citadel, armed with thoso an tique, worthless guns, and that could bo shelled out In a very brief spaco ot time. Thero Is a very strong fort, howovcr, on tho Nile, 20 miles trom Cairo, toward Alexandria, on which tho Government has spent vast amounts 61 monoy and time. It Is leally a very strategic point, being, in ray opinion, tho key to Cairo, It tho Lugllsh can tako that foit they can walk right Into Cairo after bom barding tho citadel for n short while." MUM Aiabl Pasha make a stand ntthat point, do you think ?" askod tho scrlbo, "Undoubtedly, becauso ho kuows ho t'nmiot MnUo it Niiccosslul Ntniul nt Culro, nor will they go Into tbo desert. When pota toes gtow in tho desert the Egyptian army will go there, net sooner." "Aro thero many Christians In Cairo, and will they loin Arabl Pasha ?

Tho Europeans would luako a good stand ugaliiBt tho English, but I hardly think Ihey will Join fortunes with Arabt. Tho ptlvalcsiulhoLgypilan army nro exclusively natives," "I do not think," coutlnuod Colonol Boom stein, "Arabl will light until ho arrives at that fort, twenty six miles below Cairo, Ho will ranko a determined stand there, and It de feated, will fall back on Cairo, In which event a general massacre of Europeans will follow, Tl,o populncowlll bo so worked up by tholr fanatical Maliommodnn teachers that women and children will partlclpato In tho reign ot tenor and Immenso numbers ot Euro pears will bo wiped from tho face 01 tho earth, bliould ft battlo onsuo In Cairo, Tho CnrmiKO Would Ho Ikrcmlfiil, on account of tho narrow streets.

Tho FgyptlAUS nro unmorctful, especially it worked upon tholr religion, and I npprehend serious consoqucnccs whon Cairo IS reached." "Tho Grocks and Italians In Cairo," con tinued tho Colonel, "nro also troncnorous.

Tho Italians aro principally armed with short knives nnil generally light among Ihemselvcs." "Does tho Amorlcnn pot tho rovolvcr play an important part In Egypt?" nskod tbo Critic. "liovolvors nro scarco In Egypt. Tlio cus tom laws forbid tholr being brought Into tbo country) but Amorlcnns and Englishmen man age, through tho vlrtuo ot monoy from 10 to 20 francs, generally to pass anything Into tho country thoy want to.
