Uhari.es J. Cole, Chairman. Hartford, July 29, 1884. THE TERRIBLE TURKS IN EGYPT, The statement made by Mr. Clifford Lloyd, who was sent by the English government to correct abases in the Egyptian interior de partment, reveals a terrible state of affairs, and shows what it is to live under Turkish tyranny. Mr. IJoydpaid particular atten tion to the prison system. He found that the various distriot jails were under the charge of mudirs, who were appointed by the minister of the interior, not upon their qual ifications, but in accordance with the amount of interest at their command. These officials had almost autocratic charge of the districts to which they were appointed. They were the supreme looal representatives of the exec utive, and their authority was in no way lessened by the fact that, except on financial matters, they did not consider it necessary to report to the central government. They were surrounded by a staff of officials, each of whom did whatever he was ordered to do. To show how this system works Mr. Lloyd gives the particulars of one case which came under his notice. A robbery had been com mitted in the Tantah district, the details of which made it apparent that fourteen per sons had been in one way or another con cerned in the crime. The mudir of Tantah thereupon seized seventy-seven men, among whom were some of the most respectable per sons in the district, and had them all sent to prison. When Mr. Lloyd was privately in formed of the fact, he made an investigation, and found that all of the accused had been tortured, either by the bastinado or the thumb-screws, and in this way confessions had been obtained, dictated by the mudir, implicating those against whom that official desired to have the crime proved. As a re suit of this treatment, two of the men had died, and the seventy-five who still remained in jail were in a wretched condition, with open wounds and running sores upon their feet and fingers, the marks' of the punish ment that had been inflicted two months be fore. In this particular instance, an exami nation followed, which resulted in the dis charge of all of the accused, no evidence be ing found which would warrant the convic tion of any of them. It is pointed out that the use of the bastinado was abolished three months before Mr. Lloyd's arrival in Egypt; but in spite of this abolition, the district despot did not hesitate to make use of it in the enforcement of his wishes. Other means of punishment are thumb screws, the stocks, in which the prisoner is placed with the feet reversed so as to compel him to lie face downward upon the ground; and the neck chain, by which a prisoner is compelled to stand for hours in the middle of his cell with a strong iron chain around the neck, fastened to a beam overhead, mak ing strangulation certain if he happen to faint.. And these forms of torture are used by the Turkish officials hot so much for the en forcement of the law as for their private gain. By them persons having property are tortured into confession of crime and then made to pay heavy fines. Mr. Lloyd tried to reform" these terrible Turks, but he found he could make no head way and therefore surrendered his trust and retired from the field. And it is clear that there can be no Tef orm under the present system. ' EDITORIAL NOTES. The New York Sun says: " "For Attorney General, in the event of Cleveland's election, the Hon. Thomas M. Waller of Connecticut." This is cheap enough flattery. It is announced that Benjamin Franklin Butler will not accept another nomination for governor at the hands of the Massachusetts Democrats 'hinder any consideration." Ben jamin is wise. . Cremation is making great progress in France. The prefect of the Seine means to establish Siemens furnaces in several of the cemeteries in Paris, and proposes to cremate all unclaimed bodies. If this experiment proves successful the government will proba bly introduce a general bill on cremation. . This is a rich campaign. The Hartford Courant is informed, on what it believes to be trustworthy authority, that the Eev. .Hen ry Ward Beecher announced to his friends that he has examined into the charges against Mr. Cleveland, and finds them to be sub stantially true, and that he therefore cannot support him in the pending campaign. St John, the nominee of the Prohibition ists, has quite a reoord. Hf ran away from his father in Indiana at the age of twelve; was a husband at nineteen and a widower at 1 twenty; became one of the rough-and-tumble I pioneers of the California gold diggings, and once ran barefooted . over ice, and frozen ground for two days with an anxiousparty of Indians after him; started for South America and was wrecked without clothes or coin among the Sandwich . Islands; turned up as a country lawyer in Illinois; served in the army through the war and got the . rank of colonel, and finally ."struck it" in the rum politics of Kansas. Judge Drummond of Milwaukee expressed himself thus vigorously and justly to three lawyers of that city who put in bills amount ing to $25,000 for services in settling an es tate worth $33,000: Gentlemen, you consider yourselves good lawyers. How much more are your services worth to your clients than mine to the people! Ton have charged $25, 000 for sixty days' service. Could you not be content, each of you, t take my pro rata for the same time? These charges are infamous. They are such as men who are scoundrels and thieves at heart would make. This charge of $15,000 is out down to $1,500, those of $5,000 each to $500. Repeat such a piece of rapine in this court, and I will dis bar every one of you. 1 -' Heat and a large death-rate seem to go to gether in cities. --Dr. Henry P. . Chapin, one of the physicians attached to Belle vue hos pital in New York, shows how intimate the connection is between the two in a very im pressive way. The increased mortality of summer is more marked among infants and children of tender years. In Jnly, 1882, the mean temperature in New York city was 75.79, and in August 73.42, The deaths among children under five years were but 817 in August, while the nearly two extra degrees of heat in July made the number leap to 1,533. In the summer of 1883 the contrast in temperature was even more marked, and the difference in the death-rate showed a corresponding increase. The mean temperature in July of last year was 74.40, while that for August was. but 70.44. The number of deaths under five years was 1,35 in July, while in August it sank to only 507.. There is a good deal of ceremony about paving the president of the United States his salary. It has been usual for the treasurer to pay the president his salary in monthly installments, upon the authority of what is known as an "accountable warrant" issued by the secretary of .the treasury upon the written request of one of his assistants, and countersigned by the first comptroller direct ed to him. At the close of the president's term, the first auditor states an account be tween him and the United States, giving him credit for the amount of salary due him, and charging him with the monthly installments bo made. The account is thus balanced transmitted to the first comptroller, and by him certified. This method, though it has the sanction of usage, and though no loss to the government has occurred by means of it, is yet notjn strict compliance with the law, and a recent opinion of the first comptroller will change it. The new method, which will not be adopted until the beginning of a new presidential term, is substantially like, the old, but under it the treasurer, as a disbursing officer, will make requisitions upon the sec retary of the treasury for an advance of money, upon which an "accountable war rant" will issue, authorizing the advance of money asked for, out of which payment of the president's salary will be made by the treasurer who will take a proper voucher therefor, and submit his accounts, as disbursing officer, to the first auditor for settlement. - .

"Make my will V gasped the sick lawyers "Yes," replied the doctor, gently; "it would be well, I think." "No," the legal man said, shaking his - head; "I will never matte a will. My family needs what little property I have got." Philadelphia Call. A traveler just from the South reports the following: On one of the southern railroads there is a station called Sawyer. Lately a newly married couple boarded the train and were very loving indeed. The brakeman no ticed the gushing groom kiss the bride about two hundred times, but maintained a serene quiet. Finally the station in question was reached, and just after the whistle sounded the groom gave the bride a rousing smack on the lips, and the brakeman opened the door and shouted, "Sawyer, Sawyer." "What's that?" responded the groom, look ing over his shoulder at the brakeman. "Saw yer, Sawyer." "Well, I don't care if you did; she's my wife." Cleveland Sun. Old Mrs. Dennis Warren, of Kensington, has twice attempted to commit suicide in the past few days. Benjamin Maltby, a son of D. F. Maltby, president of the Waterbury Novelty com pany, died of lung fever at a cattle raneh in Montana Sunday. Orson Wood stole a horse, buggy and har ness from Harry C. Eaton, of Newtown, re cently. He has been caught and bound over. The horse was driven nearly to Sing Sing, N. Y. - When the water was let into the pipes of the Southington waterworks for the first time, by some oversight the gate at the low-: er reservoir, into which the upper discharges, had not been opened, and the water com pressed the air to ' a high tension: and was then thrown back to the surprise and disgust of the people in charge. No damage was done. 1 The man who achieved a good deal of " no toriety as the Newtown sleeper was found drowned one day last week in the Sawmill Pond, Foundry district, Redding: His name was Sherman Piatt. Nothing is known of the circumstances. Saturday afternoon as George Sherman was passing the. pond he discovered Piatt's body, devoid of clothing, standing up in the water. Dr. Wakeman, deputy coroner, was notified, and as no marks of violence were found on his person he came to the conclusion that the deceased lost his life while bathing. It - is believed that he may have committed suicide, and that he had been in the water since Tuesday, as a stranger jtcting in a strange manner was seen there on that day. AROUNTHE WORLD.

Bbyroct, Syria, July 6, 1884. To the Editor of the Journal and Coukieh: ; Oh for an interesting city where there is no sight-seeing to be done! For weeks this has been the' plaintive lamentation sent up by my surfeited soul, and where is the pro fessional globe-trotter who has not experi enced the same longing? " Cairo and Jerusa lem are enough to freeze the blood of the scarred veteran; and even the memories of Damascus, Baalbeo and other recent victims of visitation cause my flesh to creep. Well might Shakespeare's characters cower under the lash of "Tyrant Conscience;" but if they had "taken to the road," as do their persona tors, I fancy the "thousand tongues" would have been multiplied tenfold. Just as you settle down Into a state of delicious inanity, after reaching a city, and are becoming glori ously oblivious of steamer sailings, railway time-tables,, guide books and.. pestiferous dragomans, then conscience rudely rouses you, seizes you by the scalp-lock and drags you off to "the bazaars," some tawdry mosque, ancient tomb or other public nui sance. To the weary, disgruntled tourist I com mend Beyrout. It is not a ravishingly beau tiful place, but it is very pleasant, and you don't want distractingly fine scenery; you want physical stagnation. After a three weeks' rest here I find myself quite attached to the place, and can conscientiously give this advertisement. Beyrout has no tyranni cal, stereotyped sights. It is free from even spectacular conventionalities, and therefore is a near approach to that ideal haven of refuge referred to in the opening paragraph of this letter. It has no "departed glory" with which to harass you, but on the contra ry modern enterprise, thrift and promising prospects for the future. No late memories of Damascus or Baalbec, therefore, shall ob trude themselves into this letter, but instead its theme shall be impressions regarding this live, growing, modern city. In the first place you are at liberty to spell the name Beyrout just exactly as you please. I have adopted an old-fashioned method, but you are free to choose any one of the numerous recent versions. The new styles each spring always embrace a large assortment of meth ods. The most approved French method is Beirut, and our mission has latterly adopted this spelling. I notice, however, that the French company operating the wagon-road between here and Damascus use the combi nation Beyrouth. Beirout is a favorite Eng lish spelling, while I have seen Bairut in print. The city smells as sweet by one of these names as by another, and all together only give it a population of about one hun dred thousand souls. During the last two decades the city has about doubled itself in number of inhabitants. It is generally held that Beyrout is not mentioned in the Bible. Its claims to this honor have frequently been canvassed, and Berothah of Ezekiel xlvii, 16, and Berothai of Second Samuel, viii, 8, have been cited as possible references. But our eminent mis sionary Dr. Thompson concludes against these references, and who has had better fa cilities for studying the question than he? He inclines to the belief, however, that Eze kiel's Berothah and Samuel's Berothai were identical. It has also been suggested that the Baal-berith of Judges, viii, 33, was the god of Berith (Beyrout). Doubtless there was a large city here, for as much is implied in the writings of Josephus, Pliny, Strabo and others. Moreover, the situation is the best for many miles along the coast, and this is the strongest kind of presumptive evi dence, for the Phoenicians were a very level headed people. The site was included in the land of promise, but not in the land of pos session. It is regarded as a remarkable fact that the disciples never visited Beyrout as the records seem to imply for during the Roman era it experienced its greatest glory. Colleges, baths, theatres, palaces, temples, churches and grand colonnades were elements in the magnificence of the city under Augus tus, Agrippa and Titus. But all these mate rial glories were demolished by a fearful earthquake in A. D. 551. It is said that ex cavations in almost any part of the city to day will develop memorials of this awful tragedy; which would go to prove that the ancient Beirout must have been much more prosperous than even this goodly modern city. Here Titus celebrated his capture of Jeru salem,' and here St. George killed the legend ary dragon. Don't dare to dispute this dra gon story or the wrath of the dragomans will rest upon you. There is nothing imposing in the eity of to-day. It is clean, healthy, well supplied with the smaller types of foliage and emi nently comfortable in aspect. Like every city on Turkish soil, it has grown by irregu lar accretions, so that there is little system displayed in the arrangement of streets. The city circles around a spacious bay and nestles among the foot-hills of Lebanon. From nearly every point of view a boundless expanse of sea is revealed, and to the east the mountains loom up grandly. Even in this warm season of the year snow is visible on some of the loftiest peaks, though this is exceptional. The elevations that are always snow-capped are not visible from Beyrout. The situation of the hotel where I am stopping is especially charming. It is built over the water, so that the sea actually pass es under the rooms. There is a long, glass enclosed balcony looking seawards, from which one never tires of surveying the blue Mediterranean beyond and below. There is always variety in the movements of the sea. Now its swash is so gentle and soothing that it is the most effective of lullabies when one wishes to fall asleep. Again the sea is in an uproar and the spray leaps up to the very windows. The illusion that we are actually at sea is quite hard to shake, off at times. The fish have learned to watch for the refuse that is committed to the sea from the hotel galleys and are consequently very tame. Portly-looking fellows a foot or two long come right under the balcony and stare up impertinently at us. The temptation is very strong to make them atone for their temeri ty; and not a few have been hauled up with rod and line to the broad veranda. One day somebody got up more enthusiasm than usu al, and cast a torpedo from the balcony into a school of inquisitive marine beauties. A boy sprang in after the explosion and brought three fat fellows to the surface. Many others were stunned, but not sufficiently to keep them from evading the swimmer. Nets are also cast in front of the hotel, and many bushels of fish-meat captured. The shore along here is very rocky, like that at Haif , Jaffa and even along the mar gin of Galilee. After each storm masses of salt are formed in the depressions in these rocks. The abominable Turks are in the way of Beyrout's complete prosperity. They oppose every progressive measure, refuse to permit the establishment of gas works and forbid mining in the mineral mountains. As four fifths of the inhabitants here are Christians, so-called (that is non-Mohammedans), this is especially grievous, and the race is deserved ly detested. Even the policemen (spare the mark!) are Turks. They go in squads of three for the most part, armed to the teeth. It takes two companions to screw the courage of ah ordinary patrolman up to the sticking point. There is a Turkish man-of-war al ways in the harbor here. It is a two-funnel paddle-boat, and looks as if it might make quite a decent dispatch steamer; but I have a lively suspicion that I could sink it to the bottom of the harbor if I had a good Colt's revolver. Recently the Sultan's birthday occurred and a spasmodic effort was made to celebrate 1 it. A few rockets were sent up from the Turkish barracks in town and a few more from "the warship referred to. But the gene ral effect was so paltry and half-hearted as to be actually pitiable. Whatever the Turks do is done in a cheap, threadbare way that ex cites only contempt from westerners. When I first came here there was also an American man-of-war in the bay the histor ical "Kearsarge" that sank the "Alabama." It stayed here over a week, and its presence was quite a treat to the little American com munity. - A lawn tennis tournament ' was held, the resident Americans went out on the water and serenaded the ship, and other en tertaining pastimes were devised during the stay. The various nations in the world are well represented by consulates here. That of the United States is modest, like all our foreign offices, but boasts of the tallest flag-staff in town. Colonel Robeson presides in the office. I believe he receives about one-half as much money per annum as does the British consul-in-chief here. At Damascus our agent is the dragoman of the British vice-consul! And yet Senator Randall says we ought to cut down the consular appropriations, and take our position as at once the wealthiest and stingiest nation in the world. We are viewed almost in that light how by those who only have our representation abroad to judge from. Mr. Randall, there is such a thing as legitimate economy, but there is another thing which we may call contemptible parsi mony. No more niggardly scheme has been brought before Congress since its organiza tion than this late Randall bill. Doubtless it has ere this been crushed beneath a moun tain of public scorn and odium. There are. British, French, Turkish, Aus trian and Russian postoffices here. Stran gers must go the whole rounds in order to get the whole of their mail. One thing Turkish oppression has not been able to do throttle the press. Here in Bey rout are concentrated the higher manifesta tions of Syrian nature, and among them, strange t say, is the newspaper. There ana half a dozen Arabic newspapers printed in Beyrout. Most of them are semi-weekly sheets, and I am led to believe that they are ahead of native journals anywhere else in the Orient, unless it be in Japan. They cer tainly do not revel in those monstrous lies which form the warp and woof of the Chinese journals printed at Hong Kong. Indeed, the Europeans here, who are not numerically strong enough to support a newspaper in their own language, frequently learn of im portant public events in other countries through the telegraphio dispatches of these native newspapers. The literary atmosphere at Beyrout which has made this extraordina ry state of things possible is purely Ameri can in its origin. In the distribution of the mission fields here a tacit understanding pre vails that Syria proper belongs to the United States and Palestine to England. From the first we have sent our best talent here, of which fact that gifted man, Dr. W. M. Thompson, is one of the living witnesses. Our institutions here to-day are such as make the heart of a traveling American swell with pride. There is a Sunday school chapel that combines all the most modern con veniences, and would architecturally reflect credit upon its cause even in your own city. The school has a membership of about three hundred and fifty. There is a most flourishing female seminary, where scores of Syrian girls are being at once ed ucated, civilized and Christianized. There is a splendid printing establishment, equipped with three fine steam presses and four hand presses. Last of all there is the "Syrian Protestant College," one of the no blest examples of American philanthropy abroad that the world can afford. Volumes might be written about each one of these agencies for the doing of good. But the briefest possible mention must suffice. If you want to have some idea of what it costs to propagate the gospel abroad, come here and inspect this printing estab lishment. I went in the other day and was amazed at the revelation of facilities. Rev. Samuel Jessup, the gentleman in charge of the work, showed me from room to room, each room revealing some new surprise. There was a type iounory, snow ing that the mission believes in e-oiner to the bottom of things. There are stereotype rooms where plates are preserved of the Bible and such other publi cations as the mission may wish to perpet uate. There are rooms for bookbinding, and for sewing, folding, pasting and cutting. Th apparatus everywhere is the best that London, Glasgow and New York can afford. I was especially surprised at the excellent jobs that were being done in bookbinding. There were all kinds of material from the cheapest paper to the very finest leather, splendidly embos sed. Every room seemed to be full of busi ness to the very ceiling. Mr. Jessup said that forty hands are here kept constantly at work. Among the numerous other publications is sued is a weekly newspaper in Arabic. Doubt less the outside job work is a larger source of revenue. Prosoeritv is written on every stone in - the four large college buildings. At present a very large addition is being made to the pre1 paratory school in order to meet the impera tive demands made upon it. These buildings, situated on the promontory west of a town known as Ras Beyrout, are the first objects discerned from the steamer's deck as you approach the eity. They are significantly conspicuous. There is a theological semina ry building, a medical hall, a main university hall, and a preparatory edifice. There are also fat faculty homes and an astronomical observatory. The attendance in all depart ments is about 175. Nothing could be more .inspiring in this country of retrogression and squalor than to iook into tne races or tnese Syrian youths as they are assembled at five o'clock on any afternoon in the spacious col lege chapel attendant upon "prayers." It is a spectacle which almost redeems the place in your estimation. An inspection of the various college departments is also whole some. Not only are the faculties for the work complete, but there is an air of actual opu lence encountered. The museum cabinets, physical apparatus, libraries and astronomical instruments would do credit to any except to the very largest schools in our own coun try. The botanical, geological, zoological, pathological and materia medica collections are alone enough to make this the literary center of the Levant. I have a catalogue, is sued last year, which shows that up to that commencement there had been 73 graduates in the collegiate department, 69 in the medi cal, and 8 in the pharmaceutical, while 329 other students have taken partial courses. This has been accomplished in two decades. There has to be a good deal of sifting done of course, especially in the theological department, for the tares are much thicker than the wheat, and only the promiscuous gusher would think of counting as a trophy every student influenced. Doubtless many who come to obtain an English education are simply after a command of the language, so as to enable them to obtain political preferment. The students are drawn from the ranks of the Greeks (resident especially at Cyprus)and the Syrian (so-called) Christians. The spirit of Moslem fanaticism forbids patronage of any such "infidel" institution.lt must not be con cluded on this account that the school does not reach the classes most needing its benefi cent influence. I know of no class of people more in need of Christianizing than these Oriental "Christians." There is food for thought among Ameri can educators in the rapidity with which the native youth acquire English as here taught. After six or eight months of study these Syri ans are writing original essays in English, with as correct orthography and grammar as a majority of American youngsters of the same age. There are two literary societies, one in English and the other in Arabic. Under the care of the medical faculty of the college, at the head of which is Dr. Post, is the Johanniter hospital, founded and sup ported by the Knights of the Johanniter or der of Germany. I have learned to enter tain the profoundest respect for these German hospitals and the so-called "deaconesses" that constitute the nursing corps in them. Their work has the fullest, heartiest sympa thy of the Protestant missionaries' here, and ; whenever a teacher becomes ill while his family are away on the mountains he has himself removed to the hospital. It is a fact that a person overtaken with sickness while travelling can obtain as faithful and sympa thetic attendance as he could in his own house, if he is where one of these hospitals is planted. This particular one in Beyrout has the advantage of the superior medical skill of our fine college. The stately building contains 63 pleasantly sit uated, comfortable beds, and has all the appliances for successfuly treating the most difficult diseases. About 600 patients are treated every year, half of which number are surgical cases. Daily clinics are held in an adjoining building, and as high as 13,000 cases are there treated annually. The students attend these clinics, and thus an army of competent native physicians is being created. . - The orthodox Lutheran church also has a fine mission for girls here, which has the favor of Protestant laborers. I never meet one of these deaconesses on the street with out wanting to take off my hat as I pass by, in recognition of her divine commis- j sion. The street cries here are quite as novel as those in Cairo. Of course there is not that versatility of intonation which makes theories of Japan altogether unique and unapproach able, but they embody the luxuriant vague ness and figurative extravagance which are so fascinating to the genuine Oriental. I have had many of them translated, and find them so far fetched and metaphorical as to be al most unintelligible. Of course most of them invoke the favor of God, according to the familiar but baneful Moslem custom. The month Ramadan has now set in, and all Moslemdom is fasting. From dawn till dusk no true Mohammedan eats or drinks, and many abstain laboriously from swal lowing even their saliva. To be sure there' are those, and not a few, who reimburse their depleted stomachs on the sly.but the bulk of the Moslems observe the famous fast faithful ly. This does not imply any particular de gree of sincerity or merit. Doubtless the mass of the people regard the fast as a re ligious nuisance, and wish it were abrogated. But the tyranny of the Moslem system is such that no one dares to fling the faded ens. torn away. As no Chinaman is willing to incur the ridicule and obloquy of his fellow men by sacrificing his queue, so no Moham medan cares to stem the resistless tide of Mohammedan bigotry which imposes this burden, so odious to the majority. But just as soon as the sundown gun is fired aboard the man-of-war in the harbor, all is changed. The hours of darkness are made to atone for the privations of the day. Far into the night feasting and riotous living are generally pre valent. The cafes rely upon this month of Ramadan for an especially heavy business between dusk and midnight, while many of them run until rosy-fingered Aurora be gins to streak the eastern sky. Music is one of the arts summoned to help compensate for the sacrifice involved in this abstinence from food. Every evening there are native con certs at certain of the cafes, where vocal and instrumental music (!) combine with coffee, cigarettes and hubble-bubbles to while the hours away. The Arabs have not branched off into the theatrical art. The drama, which flourished here under the Romans, is, to-day unknown, just as every department involv ing originality and enterprise is found vacant. There has been a rude attempt at the min strel art occasionally of late, but the only tangible result was a mass of insipid verbiage in the form of dialogue, punctuated with an occasional half-hazard gesture. Even the music of Beyrout, where realization of the highest Syrian culture is to be found, is of the stereotype Oriental order, utterly without harmony.
