Returns From His Trip
Abroad.
Many Places of Interest Which He
Visited.
His Impressions of Mod
ern Egypt.
Beneficent Effects of English
Administration.
General Jcsbua I*. ChainterHln, sur
veyor of the port of Portland, arrived
home yesterday alter a trip of nearly four
months spent In Kjypt lie went In hoje
of Improving his health and was succee
ful, hi) physical condition bav g been
greatly bettered. On the most of his trip
he was aooompanled by a paity of frism’s.
•*I started for borne from AlaxanJ r o i
the seventh day of this m h th; t >t ohed
at Naples and hava been at fea very much
all of the time since, ' said Gen. 1 ham
berlaln. "1 leached New York Monday
forenoon but left there yesterday and ar
rived here this afternoon on the steamer
Horatio Hall. So you see that just now
1 am doing my best to sbako my sea legs
1 hsve had a great experience and hare
seen many thlrgs of interest during my
journeys.
•'After we had arrived at Genoa we
went through all of the cities of Italy.
This was while there was a tremendous
cold streak or weather ana wnne me ui -
agreeable rains were raging. The result
was that my condition was no little
affected. Aly wounds were troubled by
this weather and for several days 1 was
laid np in a hotel critically til. My
friends did not want me to be taken to a
hospital and so 1 was obliged to remain
In a hotel. Fortunately I became im
proved and then left on an old East Af
rican liner and went to lshmalla and
then to Cairo where we 6truok a fine
climate. 1 went all over Egypt ud to the
cataracts of the Nile and was afforded an
excellent chance to study and observe.
My Impressions that i had had of that
country were overborne, and 1 ?xperi
enced the most Interetlng study that 1
have ever had I witnessed the oldest
nation In the world being born again.
A part of the time there was colder
weather and more rains than had been
known at least for this generation lint
1 rapidly recovered from my Illness after
1 had once got Into Egypt 1 carefully
studied the result of English occupancy
In Egypt and could tell you a great deal
about it. 1 think that this ocoupancy in
fluence of En.l&nd is the salvation of
Egypt. If England were to withdraw
from that country there would be an
archy polltlcilly in Ezypt and the new
springing property would be put an end
to right off English inlluenoe predomi
nates In all measures except In mere ad
ministrative details. iSbe has straight
ened out the linanolal entanglements
from a condition of practical bankruptcy
and Dus won Tor Egypt such a financial
standing that all of her pecuniary obli
gations are at a premium and there Is a
MUrplas.
Not only are all of her obligations at a
premium bai her Incomes are very large
ly in exoess of her expenditures. 1 think
that this Is due.almosi entirely to English
management. Every deoartment or In
dustry Is being Improved to a wonderful
degree. The great dams on the Nile are
the means of reclaiming the country
from a condition of 6torlllty and useless
ness so that hundreds of thousands or
acres of land are made use of. That
bridge at Assouas, at the first cataract of
the Nile, Is the most wonderful pleoe ot
engineering In the wolrd. The influ
ence of that one dam alone will be to

peclally In enlarging the area of cotton
and sugar raising. Already these two
products are being exported over to
Araerloa, their output feeing so great
Mot only will this Inure to the advanttge
of the people but also to the revenues of
the government England has a controll
ing Influence in tbe Suez canal. Whoever
controls the Great Lakes, which are the
sources of the Mile, will control tbe river
upon which the prosperity of Eygpt abso
lutely depends. England cduUI not afford
to bare another power get possession of
that]Afrloan country.
“The matter of education shows a sur
prising Improvement, Indeed, almost a
revolution In the matter of methods and
instruction I visited all of the Institu
tions rroin the great university at Cairo,
where there are now thousands and
thousands of students from all over the
Mohammedan world, and which Is the
oldest lmtltutlon In the world, through
the government schoole and the very re
markable schools of the American mis
sion, down to the primary soboclt Their
methods of Instruction really give us
Kometblug to learn as to making knowl
edge available and greater.
“All persons whom 1 met spoke very
highly of America and Americans, and I
received much attention whloh gave me
a line opporunlty to learn The officers of
the government gave me everv taolllty
for siudylng up all subj9cte This resur
rection of an ancient people Is the most
Interesting thlnv that 1 have every ex

and tbt opinions of gori lawyer* seemed
to be somewhat at vorlonoe at to the law
In tbe oats. That portion of the oonetl
tutlon of Maine whloh applies to this asss
Is as follows:
Article 3. See. 6. The 8»uet* shall on
the said first Wednesday of January, an
nually, determine who are elected by a

In every dlsirlot, II there be so many
voted for, elect by Joint ballot tbe num

manner *11 vacancies In the Senate shall
be supplied as soon ss may be, after said

The constitution provides that vaoanoles
In the House of Kepresentatlve* may be

of the vaoanoy In the Senate the section
In tne constitution above quoted seems
mandatory that the vacancy must be

O: ega Oil
Cold In tho Chest—If a porous plaster was tlie
only thing which cured cold in the chest or pains in the
chest, there wot!73 be some excuse for putting one on, but
there’s something ten times better. It’s Omega Oil. Rub
your chest and throat with
it to-night, and to-morrow
morning you’ll be all right.
Omega Oil is a liniment
that does not burn, blister,
or itch like a porous plaster.
It doesn’t stick to the skin
like glue, either. Every
mother knows
that old-fash
ioned sweet oil
is a real good
remedy for rub
on the
chest when a
cold has settled
there, but sweet
oil isn’t near so
f ood as Omega Oil.
t contains a green
Swiss herb that
soothes, heals and sub
dues inflammation in a
most astonishing way.
It is good for everything
a liniment ought to be
good for.
If your dealer refuse* to sup
ply you with this wonderful
Swiss green liniment, the Ome
ga Chemical Co.,257 Broadway,
Kew York, will mail you u
bottle, prepaid, for 50c. in cash,
money order or stamps. 7ft5
