ply, tho attention of tho whole liouao was
Immediately cunt u red up n his utter
ances. Curz m'a nnsw -r was in t!io shape
of a long and evidently caro'ully prepared
sta'emcnt, la which he p dnted out tho
threatening dcrvUh rdvanees nnd their
danger to Egypt and Intimated that tho
inovenient oi Egyptian troops orosj part
ly from u desire to aid Italy in her strug
gle with tin Abyssinian.
Lxprestdmi of Regret,
Continuing, Curzon 'said tho govern

majesty would havo the most sincere
sympathy for Italy and tho ro verso which
ttie Inter', nrms had sufferod in Africa
and ho expressed regret at tho defeat of
General Biratlerl at tho battle of Adowa.
This (statement brought forth loud Na
tlonul st cries of "No." Curzon contin
ued that tho courago of tho It dlans led to
tho hope that they would rUo from their
reverses and vindicate tho lio.ior of their
dig. Throiig'iout Curz m'i speech Irish
lr-.MiiheM interjected t ries of "Oh and

The sp -alier paused for an instant and
then coiitinujJ: "A i.ympathy which 13
not broken by a few dhsentent voices at a
ini-f irtunu which halt xfallt n a nation of

Great cheering. Cuizon then said: "At
the present moment Influences nro at
work and fores are ui changed In Central
Africa, which if flushed with victory and
swollen by a perfectly possible combina
tion of events, would constituto a most
serlouj danger not merely to Italy,
Kgypt, or the llrlt.sli oecupitlon of

"I wish to say," said tho governor,
"that tho military was t allol out in or
der to protect tho members of tho legis-lat-ore
from mob vl'enc and not to pro
tect myself. Tho story that I was to be
arrested for usurpation of authority in
ordering the sheriff to clear the state
house of all thoso not authorized bylaw
to be there and Indicating that this should
include tho deputies that tho serg.ant-at-arms
had sworn in, and that for this rea

self, and my reason for calling out the
militia was to protect the legislature and
prevent trouble."
