Shanza:!o Zicnza Saibaya. a- prince of the royal family that presides over th destinies of Egypt, and nephew of the khedive of that histoiic land. Is tem Prarily visiting Phoenix and is a guest of the Occidental hotel, lis is a . very iilain and unostentatious- person, is on a mission purely industrial in its noc ture, and seeks no notoriety by reason of his royal connections. That his mother is a. sister of the khedive that rules over th.- land of tho Pharaohs is no fault df his. and the fact is refeired to in conversation onjy that he may be properly "locnted:" that the reason may lie made clear why he is not an American, a. Russian or a Chinaman by naturalization, for the l .tter he practi cally is by adoption and asscoion. His relationship to the khedive. nr "ken die," as the word is pronounced in his native. land, is not a matter of special boast for the reason that the two claim but little admiration for each other and Saibaya's residence and bus.ness Interests for forty years past have been mainly in China, remote from the land cf his fathers. Furtr.or, his own life story is of sufficient interest to engage those who may chanc to foam his ac quaintance without the necessity of his ftanding in the ref.ected light f others. George Pavid Lane, for that is what his name menns translated into Png lish and is the name he uses when vis iting Knglish speakinsr countries, has lived a mot romantic life. The world is his kaleidoscope, and he has seen from netyrfy every viewpoint all the rotable changes that have taken place In nt lenst two generations. This it his first visit to the Vnited States, but with the rest of the footstool he is as familiar as a policeman with his favor ite beat. After living in nearly every civilised ami semi-civilized country in the world he has settle:! down in Tien Tsin. China, to grow up with the coun try. That he has Fome standing there may bo judged from tli("fact that for A GREAT... USICAL TREAT FOR PHOENIX. Dr. Minor C. Baldwin.

Musical .Courier, (New York). Hear him Friday at. the First Methodist church. Adrniss'on 50 cents. M miWitfA v iWtl mm jip twelve years he was tho official inter preter for the- dowager empress and for seven years the private ecretary of the late lamented IJ Huns Chang. Hia mission to this country Is for the pur chase of mining properties for a syndi cate of wealthy Chinese, including many of high official rank and whose capital is practically unlimited, Tun ning Into hundreds of millions of dol lars; in fact, an amount urtknown to any save themselves. But the story of Mr. I.ane can best be told In chronological order. Person ally he is a man of medium build, very dark complexion, slightly curling mousi tache and hair, originally black but now just tinged with gray; a thorough ly Egyptian type. He is pleasingly ap proachable and talks without reserve or affected dignity. He speaks beside his native tongue, the Russian, Chi nese. Japanese, Turkish, Greek, Per sian. Arabian and English languages, the latter as fluently as though reared in this country. Though appearing to be not more than 45 years old he says he Is 71 years old and one of a family of fifteen children. His father omd mother lack but a few months each of beinc l'W years old, and reside in the family home, near St. Petersburg, Rus sia. The family genealogy has been traced back through Egyptian recorda for nearly 50',' years. His father was for many ye?rs a caravan owner, or Nile driver, as they are called in that country, and acquired wealth in that industry quite early in life. Twenty j-ea.rs ego the family moved its resi dence permanently to St. Petersburg, where members of it had spent much of their time for many years before. Mr. Lane was born in Cairo, and at seven years of age he was sent to Teheran, Persia, where he lived with a wealthy aunt for five years. At the end of that time his parents took him to St. Petersburg, where he was edu cated In languages and medicine, but having no taste for the latter he never foKowed its practice after graduation. He graduated from the imperial college c.t the age of sixteen with a class of 371, and received1 the only gold medal ever given to a graduate by the Czar Alexander II. He next entered th? school of mechanical engineering at the foi tress at Kronstadt, which he says is a peculiarly interesting point in that the location was originally what might be best described as a mudhole, the fortress beirg built on piles driven deep into the ground. The RuFsians there fore net only built the city but the ground that lies beneath it. At the age cf nineteen Mr. Lane ent ered the Russian navy, serving seven years !n that capacity. During that period he visited many pa:ts of the wrrld on the Russian vessels and be gan a life that has been largely devot ed to travel tver since. Quitting the navy he lived two years in Chir.iii, tlit-n returned to St. Petersburg and entered a mining school conducted by the gov ernment, ending his course thre with i tcur participated in by all his c1js at government expense, lasting for nesirly twenty months and embracing the mining regions of Siberia and near ly all mining sections under the domin icn of that government. He says that a nice feature of the Russian govern ment is that it one is educated by it he csn always depend upon official life In Eome capacity it he wants it. The gov ernment aims to make the education of its students thorough, a.nd In return expects these students to occupy and completely fill Important positions in it interest. At this stage c.f Mr. Lane's career. and which was about forty-two years igo, he returned to China, since'when mining nr. been his private business, though it lias bren Interfered with for long periods from time to time by of ficial positions he has flUed undr the Chinese government. As mentioned be fore, twelve years was devoted to the work of official interpreter for the' em press and seven years to the important port of private secretary to Li Hung Chang. In this capacity he also formed the acquaintance of Wu Ting Fang and martv other Chinese notables of equal fame in their own country, but less prominent across the wate,r. During his yci!rs of officl?il life !n China he was sent on many private missions amd some public ones, ell to gether enabling him to visit and ex plore nearly every remote part of that interesting empire. One minsion of which he made r.pecial mention 5n a conversation yesterday occurred nine years ago, when the empress sent him with a military force to the Peiho val ley to banish the foreign missionaries. He accomplished his purpose and with out bloodshed, for he says that all peo ple in the interior of China, whether natives or foreigners, understand that when the government speaks its edicts must be obeyed, end promptly. There were fifty-two missionaries in that val ley, and he says they represented almost as many different lines of travel to the heavenly kingdom, a fact that is very confusing, to the Chinere, and accounts largely for the lack of native interest in the offerings of Christianity. They assume that their own Ideas of the here irid the hereafter are good enough when they are practically unit ed and all the rest of the apostles are. fighting with each other over the plan of salvation. . For the last fourteen years Mr. Lane has been connected with the syndicate he now represents, which is reailly a i:ajiitallstic trust composed of wealthy Chinese that stand behind what is known in this country as the "Six Com nwnles," and which group includes many of the political dignitaries of the empire. They are reputed to have 300, 000.000 of dollars seeking investment. and may have much more. In his search for mines during these fourteen years "Tie has traveled in many coun tries. He was in South Africa f on four years, and was there when the Boer war brcke out. He left because there was then no chance for investment. He thinks that country the girden spot of the world but questions if it will ever be properly developed by the English, his sympathies being plainly with the Boers. s About three month? ago Mr. I.ane came to America, stopping for a short time In New York city, then sailing for Vera Cruz, Mexico. From there he went to the City of Mexico, thence north and west into Sonoma He says he found many fine mining properties in Sonora, some of w hich he expects to go back and; secure if possible after visiting such mines as he may care to in Arizona. t He left Sonora, he says, because of the constant troubles be tween the rurales and the Yaquis mak ing travel unsafe and negotiations un- saustaciory. lie says ne was prom- ANOTHER , Of Oxfords and Shoes has Arrived.

He is also somewhat incon venienced by having some of his bag gage held at Nogales pending the ar rival of papers from Vera Crui, his port of entry. Though he has seen little of the United States, he Is well posted by reading and has had much, to do with Americans in a business way. He is very favorably impressed with the country, and particularly such Iarts ofit as he has seen. Asked his opinion concerning the war In the far east, he said his sympathies were with the Japanese, and he b? lieves the little brown men will do things to Russia tha't that nation rever dreamed about. He is familiar with conditions, thinks the Japs have the best end of the contest , from a fighting standpoint, and In-ad.Mtion have right upon their side. Though he was really educated as a Russian he has discharg ed his obligations to the country and his interests now 1 witty thp Chinese. It having been brought out in conver sation that he was both an Odd Fellow and a Mason, he was questioned some what concerning these orders in foreign lands, particular-' in respect of Mas onry. His Oddfellowship membership is held in a ludge'in South Africa and his Masonic membership is in a lodge in Algiers. He says that the often re ferred to Chinese Masonry- Is in sub stance identical with that of other lands. In lodges among the "educated classes, while visitors from occidental lands. are not frequent, he has seen them admitted, and though the lan guage was different they could follow the work very well. And again, among Chinese who could speak Englifh he has seen the work done in English as a compliment ' to such visiting brethren. Speaking of the age of Maisonry, he says it undoubtedly originated in China; that he has in his library at Tien-Tsin the charter of Blue Hawk (meaning "Good-luck Smooth") lodge No. 712, that is s-aid to have existed 54.6S3 years ago. The empress, he says, has a volume In her library which, It is claimed, dates back 311.000 yean. It is engraved on brass plates, and in It Masonry is referred to. Speaking of the supposed origin of MaFonry con temporaneously with Solomon's time he says that a tribe of the people then living in China journeyed west toward what is known as the holy land, where they encountered Solomon in all his glory, and in appreciation of his favors they imparted to him and his associ ates the secrets of masonry. He also says that the tribe of Khan left China ages ago, settling in the islands to the east and forming whr.it is now known as the Japanese empire: rather, evolv ing the race that later formed the Jap anese empire. He is confident that China is not only the oldest country in the world, but that her history ex tends back thousands of yeaj further into the mysterious past than many aeople can even conceive of.

DEMAND GOOD AUTOS. Purchasers Want Machines Which Will Stand Trips Through The Country. Automobiles, may some day be so cheap that the humblest workingman" can have one to go to and from his daily labor, but at present the manu facturers are devoting their best ef forts to the more expensive machines, for which there is an increasing de mand. Dealers who are entered for the an nual auto show, which begins at the Coliseum, February 6, declare the ex hibition of horseless carriages will demonstrate to the surprise of the general public that automobilists are clamoring for cars costing all the way from $2,500 to $5, 000. , Scores of $5,000 machines are now being manufactured in the factories of this country, whereas all the automo biles that were purchased at that price by the Americans a year ago came from France. - "'Better quality is what the autoist is after," declared a well-known local manufacturer today. "We are selling few machines of the cheaper grades. Persons who have money enough to indulge in the pleasure of automobil ing have come to a realization of the truth that there is in the old adage "the best is the cheapest.' "There is so much overland auto mobiling nowadays that the demand is for higher power motors and engines to drive the cars over all kinds 6f roads at good speed. "We are putting ways.

Machines steer more easily when made in this way. With the mo tor under the seat of the vehicle, th'i weight is thrown1 too much in the rear. Dy putting the motor or engine in-front, the weight of the machine is more evenly balanced. "Better material is wanted in all ma chines. That is why prices have ad vanced. The demand for machines is so great that the factories cannot be gin to supply them. They will be sev ral thousand machines short of their orders during 1904." The exhibits of automobile supplies will show vast improvement In nearly every part of the machine. "A mechanic would readily note the difference in the quality in the parts used now and a year ago," said a sup ply man. "I expect that the reason for the improvement lies in the fact that automobilists want machines that will stand rough usage. "Trips through the country are com mon now, and the wear and tear of machines that travel hummocky roads is great.
