THE EGYPTIAN SITUATION.
The condition of affairs in Egypt, at
the present moment, is one which consti
tutes a problem in which several European
nations take a lively interest, but whicb,
save as a matter cf curious news, is «»f no
consequence in this oountry. What is
really at issue in the present complication
is kept very carefully out of sight. The
diplomatic eorrespondenca all relates to
the march of the false prophet, the reten
tion of the Sondan as a part of Egypt; in
reality, the thing mainly at issue is the
Suez canal, including the possession by
England of the short route to her Indian
possessions.
The Soudan cuts no figure in the present
complication. This area comprises the
southern, or upper portion of Ejypt and
is the eastern limit of Soudan, which is the
most useless at d least known of the great
interior regions of northern and central
Africa. Tne Soudan, that portion whioh
is included as a part of Egypt, only con
tains about a million inhabitants, and al
. though it has some productive value, or
would have, under good management, it is
of little use under such a government as
has been permitted of late to control the
affairs of Egypt. Its taxable value is al
most nil, for the reason that taxation
there, as well as elsewhere in Egypt, has
been so onerous that it has crushed all
ambition out of the common people.
They find that'the more they produce, the
more they are oppressed by the taxgather
er, and henco they have sunken
into a condition where their' productive
capacity reaches but little beyond their
bare necessities.
The country being substantially worth
less, there is to reason why Egypt ehould
not allow it to be occupied by the prophet
and his fanatio hordes; it would relieva it
of a worthless province in the matter of
wealth production, and of a region whioh
is dominated by an uneasy population
whose movements are always menacing to
the security of the rest of the oountry. But
the khedive has the right to protest
against the loss of any of bis territory; he
takes the ground that the English having
lately subjugated Egypt, are responsible
for its .condition, and if England will
no; attend to this duty, he will call upon
Turkey, or Franoe, either of which will not
hesitate, "for a consideration," to attempt
to preserve order throughout the Egyptian
provinces.
And here is England's dilemma: She
must either protect Egypt, in which case
she will have to enter on an extended and
oostly war, or the must allow it to be done
by Borne other power, in whioh oase she
loses her hold on Egypt, imperils the in
terests of the English creditors of Egypt,
and permits her route to India to be bor
dered by a possibly hostile people. In
fine, the present question before the Eng
lish cabinet is: How can we retain our
hold on Egypt without doing any fighting?
Gladstone cannot etaDd many more wars.
Elected in the interests of peace, his party
h is had a war on its hands almost every
moment since its inauguration into power.
It is not impossible that out of the pres
ent situation there may grow some .mo
mentous events. France is anxious to
take charge of the labor of policing the
Egyptian provinces: Turkey is quite as
anxious to do the same thing in order that
it may sec ore a restoration of what was
oace one of its richest possessions; in f ict,
a very slight hesitation on the part of j
England to arrest the march of the proph- j
et may have the effect to precipitate a cri- J
sis which may involve in war the one-half I
of Europe and a portion of Asia and Af- j
rica.
CURRENT COMMENT.
A Washington physician went to Senator ;
Edmunds a lew days ago and urged upon him to !
retain his position as president j/ro few of the |
enate,"as ho might be called upon to act as pres- j
ident before the end of the year." This means
that it is the general belief that President Arthur
is in bad health. Another physician, who at
tended the White house New Year's reception
said: "Mr. Arthur is far from well. I looked
at him carefully when I shook hands with him,
as I had heard reports as to his poor health.
His color is bad,th're is an unnatural flush about
his looks. He looked all the world to me like a
person suffering from heart disease. It would not
surDrise me greatly if he did not live out his
term, or even beyond the present year I know
nothing of tho President's habits, but he should
be very careful." The universal comment of
those who attended the New Year's ieception
was, "How badly General Arthur looks." From
these and other statements, it is apparent enough
that Mr. Aithur has beiii burning his candle at
both ends. His Yellowstone trip is constantly
ref'.-rrod to as an imprudent expedition
for him. He returned to Washington
from tliat outing, the narrative of
which was made so graphic by Col. Mike Sheri
dan, completely fagged out and nearly, pros
trated. Under ordinary conditions he ought
to have returned refreshed and full of vigor, lt
certainly is not the wearing of executive duties
that is so affecting the President. He is not
overworked bv government cares. It is to be
hoped the President will survive his term, but
if he should not the welfare of the country
.will not be in the least affected. A few months
or weeks or days of Mr. Edmunds would r?su t
in no derangement. It would, however, be a
curious chapter of current history if the Presi
dent and Vice President should both die within
the limit of a 6itgle Presidential term. It will
be better if Mr. Arthur heads the warning, and
is very caro.'ul.
Since Dorsey's famous "soap" exploitnre, tho
Indiana politicihns of the Republican house of
hope aro animated by peculiar views as t > the
importance of the use of big money in politics.
The Republican politicians of the stato it seems
have determined to begin early and stay as long
as they can. A begging campaign circular
signed by one W. 8. Odell, has been discover'^ 1
in the departments at Washington. The propo
sition made conte-nplates uonthly payments
for six months, and sets forth, of
course, the pro3sint; needs of the
glorioas cause. These circulars were placed on
the desks of all the Indiana employes, regard
less of sex, except Pastmaster General Gres
kam's. Probablybecau.se he was omitted, that
functionary is making a fuss about it. In tha
P. O. the captain of the watch has confessed
that he placed tho circulars upon the desks of
the clerks to whem they were addressed, but
denies all knowledge of their purport. Judge
(rreiham threatens to cause the arrest ofOclell
if ho can hold him for a violation of tho civil
service law, and to dismiss all clerks who may
be shown to hava had knowledga of th'3
transaction. It is doubtful if the law applies
to the case, though by strained construction it
may be covered by the action forbidding the
soliciting or receiving funds f.ir political pur
poses in any room or building bv those ia the
employ of the government. The eccentric
course of Gresham in the matter is not making
him any friends in his own party; and his con
duct is characterized as extremely superservico
able.
Edwabd C. Stedmax, the poet-banker, has
gone back on to the floor of the New York Stock
exchange, having settled with all creditors hold
ing his obligations when he suspended payment
a few months ago. Upon his return to the
floor he was cordially welcomed, aud ho said ho
was glad to get back again, and that he should
execute commissions to bny and sell like any
young trader, though he realized he was pretty
old to begin life over again. Soon
after his failure Mr. Stedman had
several tempting offers of editorial posi
tions, but he declined them all as tho service
wsutd demand such a consumption of time
that no opportunity would remain to him for
"verse-making." Of his future he says: "I
don't expoct to get rich and don't waut to, but
I lisps to earn a living and find some leisure
hours in which to work upon my boek." His :
plan was, bofore his business d.saster, to spend
some time in Venice at work uponthB book
which has spare hours for several
years patt.
Sehatob Anthony is a hopeless invalid, and
it is thought, from a political standpoint, to be
very imprudent to maks him president pro tem
pore of tho Sonata, for the reason that a Demo
crat, Mr. Carlisle, is Speaker of the House, and
so aext in order of Presidential succession. Mr.
Edmunds chafes in the position, and its con
finement and awful dignity aro very hateful to
him. The Republicans are perplexed over the
situation. They should have the courage to
place Mr. Mahone in the chair. Aftor all that
statesman has suffered for his party he is
worthy such recognition.
Some seven years ago the rector of the viUago
of Himpton Lacy, Warwickshire, England, de
cided ur or. an experiment. Ho bought the only
public house, or inn, and employed a man to
conduct it. Beer has been sold, but no other
beverage, and the beer supplied has been of a
guaranteed pure quality. The result is stated
to be that drunkenness has been banished from
the viUage, and yet the enterprise has been pro
fitable, affording a surplus from which has been
paid the 6alary of tho orcanist of the church and
$150 a year divided among the local charities of
the place.
While Carl Shurz was secretary of the interi
or he debarred C. D. Gilmore, a pension law
yer from practice before the department. Gil
more has just brought suit against tho ex-secre
tary for $300,000. The decapitated lawyer's
idea of Shurz's wealth is monumental, aad if he
had waited a year ortwo longer he might have had
the cheek te ask for five hundred thousand, or,
a million, even. Gilmore was charged with
paying monoy to a clerk in the department to
promote a claim he was prosecuting.
ANewYobe city paper makes mention of
17,528 steet obstructions that were licensed in
that city last year. Among these were 538
wooden Indians, 3,393 exhibits of goods, 1,734
show cases, about nine thousand signs,' some
three thousand awnings, coal boxe3 and etrest
stands. New York seem3 to be a "nation of
shopkeepers," in and of itself.
The Union, of Springfiold, Mass., thinks that
the modern machine system of public schools
dwarfs the mind rather than develops it. The
cause for this is largely laid at the door of ma
chine-minded superintendents, whose methods
overtax the physical system, deny wholesome
recreation, and make pupils the '-jogs," merely
of routine.

Death ot Herbert r.. Hinckley.
Intelligence was r ;t c-d yesterday of
tho death of Mr. He rt L. Hinckley, of
White Bear Lake, which iscarred at his
father's residence in Philadelphia, on the
6th inst. Mr. Hinckley was the son
of Isaao Hinckley, president of
the Philadelphia, Wilmington &, Baltimore
road, and some ten or twelve years ago he
came to Minnesota in search of health,
being of a consumptive tendency. He
located on White Bear lake and by care and
abundant out door exercise undoubtedly
prolonged his life. A few weeks ago it
became apparent that the end was drawing
near and his father sent his private
car to St. Paul to bring his invalid eon
home.
Mr. Hinckley was about thirty-five years
of age, and during his residence here made
many warm friends, who will read this an
nouncement with unfeigned regret.

western members in a movement to pass

PETITION3 PBESENTED.
By Senator Sherman, from the ex-sol
diers and sailors, asking for grants of
lands.
By Senator Voorhees, from the posts of
the Grand Army of the Republic, praying
for the passage of the bill now pending,
repealing the statutory limitation,in regard
to arrearrgeB of pensions.
By Senator Plumb, from 1.500 citizens
of Kansas and Missouri, praying that the
land known as the Oklahoma land, in the
Indian territory, be opened to settlement.
By Ssnator Conger, from posts of the
Grand Army of the Republic in Michigan,
asking forjffurther awards of laud to ex
soldiers.
By Senator Logan, from many ex
soldiers, askirg for the opening of ihe
Sioux reservation. Also, asttin^ for ths
passage of the "equalization bounty
bill.
Senator Miller, of New York, presented |
a joint resolution of •-■ I giBlatute of
New York, relating" to long piagce among
cattle, and requesting the representatives
and senators of states in congress to urge
the enactment of a law to carry into effect
a recommendation made by the cattle
commissioner's report, transmitted to con
gress in February, 1882, for the extinction
of the lung plngue.
Senator Voorhees introduced a bill to
equalize the bounties of soldiers. This
bill, Senator Voorhaes said, is a copy of
the bill passed by congress nine years ago,
but whioh was ve'eoed by President'Graut
on the ground that it would take more
money out of the treasury than the pablio
interest would warrant, but there is so
much now said about the surplus of rev
enue, and the abundance of money, he
would introduce the same bill now, and
hoped it would met an early consideration
of the committee.
The senate took up Senator Van Wyok's
resolution, directing the secretary of the
interior to suspend action as to the issuing
of patents or certificates of land grants to
the New Orleans & Paoifio Railroad Co.
until congress shall, at this session, deter
mine the questions involved in the claims
of said corporations. Senator Van Wyok
stated he had prepared a substitute for
the preamble to his resolutions. The new
preamble and resolution, which was agreed
to, is as follows:
Whebeas, It is claimed by the New
Orleans & Paoifio Railroad company that,
inasmuch as the attorney general has de
oided in favor of the eompauy as to the
lands demanded by tham, and the secre
tary of the interior felt oonstrained to act
apon and accept said opinion, und tbe
company also olairn that congres3 has no
further control or authority over said
lands or tho demands of said company;
therefore
Resolved, That the secretary of the in
terior is requested to suspend action in is
suing certificates or patents to the said
lands to the said corporation, until con
gress at this sear.ion has determined the
questions involved in the claims of the
said corporation.
Senator Voorhees offered the following
whioh was agreed to:
Resolved, that the seoretary of the treas
ury is directed to inform the senate,
whether, since January 1st, 1864, the du
ties on tonnage have been collected at any
port with the United States from fereign
ships in contravention of treaty provis
ions or unauthorized by law. If so, the
amount and date of such exaction, and the
name of the vessel or vessels upon whioh
suoh unauthorized duties were imposed.
Senator Voorhees also offered the follow
ing whioh was agreed to.
Resolved, That the secretary of war be
directed to inform the senate of the num
ber of soldiers of the late war for the
Union, who served one year, two years, and
three years, and the amount of bounty
paid to each olass respectively, and also
inform the senate the amount of money
which will be required to equalize the
bounties of those who served ia tha said
war.
The senate resumed the consideration of
the new rules. Pending the question on
the motion of Senator .'est to strike out
from rule 26 the clause providing for a
committee on internal improvements, to
whioh shall be referred all subjects ralut
ing to improvements on rivers and har
bors, and also the bill known as the river
and harbor bill.
Senator Maxey referred to the remarks
made by Senator Frye yesterday, in regard
to English shipping, and said the true
reason for the difference between the de
velopement of the English and American
shipping was to be found in the fact that
England invited her commercial marine
to carry free loads into her ports from all
parts of the world and carry free loads
out. From the day of the adoption of a
high protective tariff could be dated the
decadence of Amerioan shipping. Refer
ring to the argument of the protectionists
that protection was necessary to preserve
the industries from the competition of the
pauper labor of Europe, Senator Maxey
stated that tbe farmers of the United
States, who ask no protective tariff, and as
a matter of fact competing to-day with the
piuper labor of Egypt, India, Austria,
Poland, Russia and China, and the time
will come when even New England will
demand the destruction of tha tariff.
Senator Morrill did not know what the
question of the tariff had to do with the
senate rules, but said the commerce of
Great Britain did not decline from 1824 to
1846, when the English maintained pro
tection. The repeal of the corn laws was
the greatest measure of protection the
English manufacturers could at the time
have reseived.
Senator Beck said there never will be a
revival of American shipping until men
were allowed to bay ships where tney
pleased.
Senator Frye was delight9d to hear the
opinion of the other side of the chamber
expressed so unreservedly for free trade.
He hoped he would hear other senators on
that side expressing themselves to the same
effect. There had been doubts for some
months past jast where the Democratic
party stood in regard to free trade. ,
Senator Morgan stated that there were
not many of the leading Democrats of the
party in the United States, and certainly
not in either house of congress, who had
thus far given an expression to the idea to
be a free trader, since from what the gen
tleman from Maine (Frye) would imply,
tha Democrats were in favor of a modifi
cation of the existing tariff, for the pur
pose of a redco.ion of the unnecessary
burden of $100 000,000 a year of unjust
taxation, placed upon the country by the
Republican party. Neither party had the
courage to bring in a bill to repeal alto
gether the odious navigation laws. It
seemed as though the people had to organ
ize a general mister and beat a long roll
upon us before they could induce us to do
anything. The question of spending the
pfcjplt'o money seemed to be the gravest
consideration with the legislators, while
poverty and wreck were tramping around
tha country with sores of which Lizirus
would be ashamed. Strikes are heard of
everywhere. Thousands and t6ns of thou
sands of men all over the land in the depth
of a cold winter are without food and
clothing for themselves or families,and are
compelled to beg and implore char ty of
the masters by whom they are surrounded.
The Democratic party, Morgan said, would,
notwithstanding the objections and re
monstrances of the Republicans, continue
referring to the high tariff until justice
was done the people. We are a rich gov
ernment and a poor people, and the cries
of the poor for bread and fuel, if heard in
the senate, would howl down the very
storm of winter, and yet these are the
people as to whom we must be silent in
that chamber.
The motion of Senator Vest wa3 agreed
to.
Without reaching a vote3on the rule, the
senate went into executive session, and
soon adi'jarned.
I5ILT.S ISTBODUCED.

London, Jan. 10.—Ever since the threats
of vengeance for the sentence of O'Don
nell have been mads against Judge Dan
man, a guard of two policemen have es
corted the judge wherever ha has gone
outside of his own residenoa. It is now
ascertained that Judge Denman strenuous
ly protested against the guard, but that
the home secretary, Sir Wm. Harcourt, in
sisted upon the precaution being taken.
SIB ABTnUB SULLIVAN.
The neuralgia pains which have afflict
ed Sir Arthur Sullivan have subsided to a
great extent, but have been followed by
extreme weakness, and the doctors
insist that a prolonged season of
rest {is essential to his recovery.
The f amous composer is, however, a most
restless patient, and is continually express
ing anxiety to resume his professional la
bors. Mr.Sims, tha dramatic author, is
al3o overworked, and refuses to indulge in
the rest which is advised by his physicians.
SHIPPING BEFOaM.
The disousaions of the proposed ship
ping reforms of Mr. Chamberlain, presi
dent of the board of trade, continues, and
new assailants of the projected laws arise
every day. Among the new arguments ad
vanced is one to tha effect that the proposed
law to limit m arine insurance to two
thirds,the value of the freight and v
would result in throwing the carrying
trade into the handB of the great com
panies which can afford to be their own
underwriters It is f also argued that the
number of persons who iusure t'rnir ves
sels i'.nd cargoes with criminal intent is
proportionately small, and the under
writers may be relu-d upon to desoonrage
a system under whioh they must inevitably
lose. M
THE IBON TBADE.
Tha outlook for 1S84 in the
iron trade is not encourag
ing. Leading iron manufacturers
anticipate that there will be a marked de
crease in Rhip buildintr in consequence of
the expected oo'lapse of speculative build
ers. Is is probable, therefore, there will
be less demand for pig iron for home con
sumption, but the iron masters hope for
an increased export trade, which will ef
fect an improvement in prices.
Since the conviction of Mr. Thomas
Gallagher, the Americau, for his Birming
ham dynamite conspiracy, the polio have
been constantly looking aboat :n what
they cor.sider suspicious places, in the
hope of unearthing possibla dynamiters.
They recently arrested the London agent
of an American manufacturer ofjelectrical
apparatus and put him to no end
of inconvenienoe before ho could obtain
his release. For weeks they have watched
the shop of an American named James
Caroman, who is a manuf..cturor of smo
kers' fancy articles in Drnry lane. On
last Monday night they forced an entrince
into his place of business, ruthlessly over
hauled his entire stock, and finally poized
a number of curious machines which were
beyond their comprehension and conse
quently unlawful. These machines turned
oat to bo cigarette makers of an old de
scription. Caroman went to the police
authorities and protested, but they laugh
ed at him. He has now sought redress
at the American ministry and has made
a formal protest against the indignities
and injustices to whioh he has beau sub
jected to Miuister Lewell.
THE CELTIC.
The owners of the overdue steamship
Celtic, iu an interview to-day, said that
while they were naturally anxious for the
safety of the vessel, they felt no grave ap
prehensions. Calculations baaed on her
rate of sailing when she w*b last seen
would bring her to port on Saturday.
COUET SCANDAL* IR BE3LIM.
Court ciio'.c-s in Berlin are stirred to
their profonndest depths by a soan
dal whioh involves in its meshes
tbe two proud houses of Hohen
zoliem and Onhalt. The alleged
oulprit is no less a personage than Prince
Frederick Charles Nioolar, the nephew cf
the emperor, aud one of the most distin
guished generals of the Frauoo-PniBsian
war. His wife is tho Prinoess Maria
Annie, daughter of the Dake Leopold
cf Anhalt lately discovered what he con
siders conclusive evidence of the prison
er's infidelity with a lady who is promin
ent in the oourt of Empress Augusta, but
whose name has uot been allowed to
transpire. It is almost certain that
the prince's offense, if he has been an of
fender, is a thing of the past, and that the
liason was ended some years ago. The
princess, however, seems to have convinced
herself that the prince not only has been
but was a marital deserter. She confided
him with the proofs of his guilt, and
demanded that he should abandon his un
holy amour; a terrible scene resulted. The
storm of anger which possessed the prin
cess lashed the prince to fury, and bitter
communications were exchanged. The
upshot of the row was that Prince Freder
ick Charles absolutely refused to comply
with the demand of the princess that he
should refuse to speak to the lady in ques
tion and that the princees resolved to
pros6cnta him in the police courts for a
divorce. There has been as yet no public
proceedings regarding tha scan
dal, and the Berlin news
papers contain only the agquest
allusions to the affair. It is knowa, how
ever, that Prince Frederick Charles has
submitted the question to his august uncle,
the Emperor, and agreed to abide by his
decision as the head of the Hohenzolem
families. The Emperor has
issued an order in which,
after expressing his profound sorrow for
the occurrence of such a deplorable dis
agreement, ho decides that a suit for
divorce oaunot be permitted, but that a
separation may be arranged after due pro
vision has been made to prefect the
heritage right of the princess and her off
spring.
