London, April I Sir Francis-do Wlnton,
chairman of tbe Emin Fasha relief commit
tee, makes public- tbe letter which he received
Monday from Henry M. Stanley. It is dated
Bungangeta Island, on the Aruwhimi, Aug.
88, 1888. After confirming his short dis
patch of Aug. 17, already published, an
nouncing that be bad relieved Emfn, Stanley
proceeds to relate the story of his movements
from June 28, 18S7. Ha refers to his instruc
tions to Barttelot, who lost his life in the
African wilderness a year or so ago, tells of
his travels up to Oct 18, 1837, the incidents
of which were the desertion of twenty-six
mm and tbe leaving of fifty -six others who
were sick with the chief at Ugarrowwas.
During this march also ha lost five
men by an attack of the natives,
Lieut. Stairs being badly wounded by a
poisoned arrow. On Oct. 18 the party
reached a settlement belonging to Kilinga
longa, a Zancibareseslaveof Abed Bin Balim,
the fierce old Arab who "has made so much
trouble in the Congo state. Stanley says:
"This proved an awful month to us. Not
one member of our expedition, white or
black, will forget it Out or tbe 880 men
with whom we had started, we luet 66 by de
sertion and death between Yarabuya and
Ugarrowwas, and left 56 sick at the Arab
station. On reaching Kilingalonga we found
we had lost 6.1 more men by starvation and
desertion. We had lived principally on wild
fruit and nurs. Abed Bin Saliui'a slaves did
their utmost, short of open hostilities, to ruin
the expedition. They induced the men to soil
rifles and clothing, so that when we left
we were beggared and the men nearly naked.
We were too weak to carry tbe boat and
seventy loads of goods, and we left them
at Kilingalonga unisr Surgeon Parke aud
Capt. Nelson, tbe latter of wbom was unable
to march. After marching twelve days we
reached Ibwiri. Tbe Aral had devastated
tbe whole country, so that not a native hut
was standing between Ugarrowwas anl
Ibwiri. What had not been destroyed by
slaves of Abed Bin Salim the clvpbauts ra
ined, -so that tbe whole region was turned
into a horrible wilderness. But at Ibwiri we
were beyond the utmost reach of dost roy era
We were on virgin soil in a populous region
abounding with food. Our suffering from
hunger, which began Aug. 91, terminated
on Nov. 12. Ourselves and niou were skele
tons. Out of 3S9 men we now numbered only
174, and several of these bad no hope of life
left A halt was ordered for the people to
recuperate. Hitherto they were skeptical
of what we had told them. Tbe suffering
bad been so awful, the calamities so numer
ous, the forests so endless, that they refused
to believe that by-and-by we would see plains
and cattle, and tbe Nyansa, and the white
man, Emin Pasha. We felt as though we
were dragging them along with a chain
around their necks."
During the terrible march Stanley tried to
cheer his men by telling that they were com
ing to a good country, but his prayers and
entreaties ware of no avail. He continues:
"I then resortftl to tbe death penalty. Two
of tbe worst rases were accordingly taken
and hanged in the presence of all. We halted
thirteen days In Ibwiri and reveled on fowls.
goats, bananas, corn, sweet potatoes, yams.
Deans, eta I he supplies were inexhaustible.
The people glutted themselves. Tbe result
was that I bad 173 sleek and mostly robust
men when I set out for Albert Nyansa on
Nov. 24. (One man had been killed by ao
arrow.) We were still 126 miles from the
lake, but with food, such a distance seemed
nothing. On Dec. 1 we sighted the open
country from the top of tbe ridge, which was
named Mt Pisgah because it was our
first view tf tbe land of promise and plenty.
Dec 5 we emerged on the plains and the
gloomy, deadly forest was behind us. After
160 days of gloom we saw tbe light of day.
making everything beautiful. We thought
w bad never seen grans so green or countrv
so lovely. The men leaped for Joy and ran
with their burdens.
"At ICilongasongas, on Dec. Si, we came to
the country of the powerful chief, Mazam
boni Our road lay through bis numerous
villages. Tbe natives sighted us and were
prepared. We seised a hill as soon as we ar
rived in the center of a mass of villages, about
4 p. m. on Dec. 8, occupied it, and built a
sariba of brush wood as fast as we could cut
it The war cries ware terrible from hill to
hill across the valley. People gathered by
hundreds from all points, and war horns and
drums announced tbe struggle. We checked
the first advance of tbe natives with a little
skirmish, and captured a cow, tbe first meat
we had tasted since leaving the ocean. Night
passed peacefully. In the morning we opened
a parley. The natives were anxious to know
who we were, and we ware equally anxious
to glean news. They said Maxamboni only
held the country for Kabbarecra. who was
their real king. They finally accepted cloth and
brass rods to show Maxamboni, and hostili
ties were suspended until morning, when
Maxamboni aent word that we must be driv
en from the land. Tbe proclamation was
greeted in the valley with deafening cheers.
Their word 'kanwana signifies peace, and
surwana' war. we Hoped ws bad heard
wrongly, therefore, and sent our interpreter
Bearer to Inquire. They responded kur
wana,' and emphasised it with two arrows
Bred at him. Our hill was between two val
leys. I sent forty men under Lieut Stair
to attack the natives in one valley ,and thirty
under Mr. Jepson into the other valley.
Stairs crossed a deep river in face of the na
tives, and assaulted tbe first village andfbok
it The 'harp-shooters did effective work
and drove the natives up the opposite slope
until the i.gbt became general Jepson also
drove the natives in front of him. We
inarched straight up the valley, driving
back the people and taking Tillages as we
went At 3 p. m. not a native was visible
anywhere, except on one small hill a mile
and a half west
"On the morning of the 12th we continued
our march. During the day we had four little
fights. On tbe 13th we marched straight
east and were attacked by new forces every
hour until noon, when we halted for refresh
ments. At 1 p. m. we resumed our march
and fifteen minutes later I cried, 'Prepare for
sight of Nyansa. ' Tbe men murmured and
doubted, and said: 'Why does master contin
ually talk this wayf Nyanza, indeed 1 Is
not this a plain, and can we not see the
moun tains T But fifteen minutes later and
after our four days' march the Albert Nyan
sa was below them. All came to kiss my
hands ti recognition of my prophecy. Our
position was 5,200 feet above tbe sea, the
lake ovor 2,000 feet below us. We wore then
In 1 degree 20 minutes latitude. The south
end of the Nyanza lay mapped out about six
miles south of this position. .
"Right across to the eastern shore was the
tributary, Lanilika, flowing from the south
west As we descended, the natives 100 feet
below poured in on us, but their primitive
style of fighting did not delay ua The rear
guard fought them until we were within 100
feet of the plain, where we camped. We
were attacked during the night, but we drove
the attackers away. At 9 o'clock noxt morn
ing we reached tbe village of K at on go, but
were unable to make friends with tbe inhab
itant They would not be friendly, because,
having never beard of a white man, they
feared we would scare their cattle away.
They wouldn't accept any presents, or indeed
have anything to do with us, though they
were perfectly civil. They gave us water to
drink, but nothing else. They showed us the
path, and we camped half a mile from the
lake. We bad used nearly all our remaining
ammunition in she five days' fighting on the
plain, and a long fight must exhaust our
stock. Thar was no feasible plan except to
retreat to Ibwiri, build a fort, and send for
stores ajjd ammunition, sending the boat to
search for I .min. litis plan, after a long dis
cussion, we resolved upon-"
The march back to Ibwiri was a succession
. of fights w tb the natives, and one of tbe
party was killed. On Jan. 7 Ibwiri was
reached ami the fort constructed, Lieut
Stairs being dispatched to Kikmgalongas
for stores. Here Stanley took sick, but re
covered, and on April 9 beset out for Al
bert Nyana, leaving Capt Nelson in com
mand of tbs fort April 26, 1887, Stanley
again arrived in Mozarabon's country, and
that chief n ade a "blood brotherhood" with
him, as did tbe other chiefs, and there was
little further difficulty after that
One day's march from Nyansa natives told
Stanley that their chief bad a packet for
bun from a bite man named Malijja, whom
Stanley rent gnized as Emin Pasha, and when
he received the packet it proved to be from
Emin, who laid he bad heard that Stanley
was in Mstambon's country, and begged
him to remain there until further communi
cations. Stinley then proceeded, and April
26 arrived a'; Mawa station in Emin's coun
try, and was hospitably received by the
Stanley tt en continues: "April 29 we ones
again reach-id the bivouac ground occupied
by us on Dec, 16, and at 5 p. m. of that day
1 saw the Khedive steamer seven miles away
steaming tcward ua Soon after 7 p. m.
Emin Pasha. Signor Casata and Mr. Jepson
arrived at our camp, where they were heart
ily welcomet1. by ua We were together until
May 25. On that day 1 left him. Fourteen
days latpr I was at Port" Bodo, where were
Capt Nelson and Lieut Stairs. The latter
had returned from Ugarrowwas twenty-two
days after I had set out for tbe lake, bring
ing with hire only sixteen men out of fifty
six. All tbe rest were dead."
The explorer left Fort Bodo on March 10,
leaving Lie it Stairs in command "with
fifty-nine m m, and proceeded back to Kil
ongalongas, reaching there June 24 and
Ugarrowwas on July 19. This station was
deserted, the chief Ugarrowwas having gone
down tbe riv jr. Stauley followed and over
took him Aui;. 10, and cn tbe 17 he. met Bart
telot's column, and learned of the major's
death. But of 257 men who should have
been in tbe column only seventy-one re
mained, and but fifty-three of these were fit
for service. During the fourteen months
since Stanley parted from this column the rec
ord had beeu one of disaster and death. Says
"Deserters had spread the report that I was
dead, and the officers accepted tbe report and
agreed to cancel my instructions. They ac
cordingly sen!: my personal kit, medicines,
soap, candles, and provisions down the Congo
as superfluity s. Thus after my immense sac
rifices to relieve and cheer them I And myself
naked and deprived of even necessaries. But
strange to sa3', I have kept two bats, four
pairs of boots a flannel jacket, and I propose
to go back to Emin Pasha, and across Africa
with this truly African kit"
The party j assed 100 days going through
one continuous forest Stanley estimates its
area at 8-W.OO ) square miles. Between Yam
buya and Nyiincaflvedistlnct languages were
spoken by tb natives. Fifty mile6 before
reaching Nyanza they saw a mountain about
18,000 feet I igh, its summit covered with
Referring t Emin Pasha, Stanley says the
pasha has two batallions, one of 7.V) men and
the other of 610. Ue is keeping up a bos of
communieati n along the Nyanza and the
Nile, attout 18) miles in length. In tbe inte
rior west of tte Nile be retains three or four
small stations. Altogether he has with him
about 8,00)) people, including women and
Stanley's lef-or concludes as follows: "Emin
Pacha proposed to visit Fort Bodo, taking
Mr. Jepson w th him. At Fort Bodo I have
left instruction is to the officers to destroy tbe
fort and accor lpany the pasha to Nyanza. 1
hope to meet tbem all again on the Nyanza,
as I intend making a short rut to the Nyansa
along a new mite.

Brother Election Notes.
Chicago, April 3. Returns of the elec
tion yesterday from nearly all of the pre
cincts in the city are in, and show tbe elec
tion of the entire Democratio ticket for city
officers, aud a majority of the aldermen,
giving the Democrats full control of the city
government in both executive and legislative
branches. DeWitt C Cregier, the Demo
cratic candidate for mayor, has an estimated
majority of 12,000 over John A. Roche, Re
publican, tbe present incumbent The
weather was perfect and the day passed off
in a remarkably peaceable manner. There
were very few disturbances reported, and
what there were amounted to little.
Tbe Times, which supported Roche and
about all of tbe Republican ticket except
Cratty for circuit judge, says:
Tbo election is over and so far as can be
seen at this writing the entire Democratic
ticket, city and town, has won by majorities
ranging from 9,000 downward. Not a single
municipal office was missed in the landslide.
The result was simply an avalanche and it
came with sudden and unexpected force to
the Republicans. The vest-pocket vote was
remorselessly against the Republican candi
dates. Those little ballots coming from tbe
waist-coats of the solid Republican citizens
of the solid Republican wards fell like snow
flakes upon John A. Roc-he and overwhelmed
him with then- weight
"The explanation of the defeat in figures is
not that Mr. Cregier obtained some 50,000
votes, but that Mr. Roche only obtained
some 38,000. Republicans all over the city
staid at home. The vote was of unprece
dented lightness in the Republican wards.
Apparently half of those who did come out
to vote came with the strong purpose of
knifing the head of the Republican ticket It
was a bad defeat It was the worst defeat
that the Republican party has probably ever
sustained in Chicago. It amounts "prac
tically to an overthrow of their present or
ganisation. "It is almost safe to say that the mayor
was beaten by tbe Republicana He was
cruelly knifed In the banner Republican
wards. The Eleventh ward, in which
George Swift lives and which has in all
times been the stronghold of Republicanism
in tbe past, he carried by only a handful of
votes. Tbe great Republican stamping
ground, the Twelfth, ripped him to peices. In
the Twenty-fourth ward be was knifed for
the Republican candidate for alderman and
scratched for Raymond."
The Herald, which, with The News, bore
the brunt of tbe newspaper work against the
Republicans, says: "DeWitt C. Cregier bat
been elected mayor of Chicago by over 12.00C
majority. The Republican machine has been
smashed. The big wheels are strewn about
the city. The larger ones will be picked up to
day in the Eleventh and Twelfth wards. Tb
Yerkes governor flew off at,4 o'clock. Tbe
cogs have been knocked out of town. A
more complete municipal wreck has not
been seen in many years. An egg
beater could not be made out of the
material left from the machine. The re
mainder of tbe Democratio ticket has been
elected by handsome majorities. Over in the
west division Williams, the Republican can
didate for assessor, has been snowed under.
It was in the heavy Republican wards of
this "part of the city that the machine got
some of its worst blows Men voted from
then- vest pockets in the Eleventh and
Twelfth wards. These Were supposed by the
machine to tie one of its greatest strong
holds. Reports from the rountry on the ju
dicial end of the ticket are meager, but it is
believed that Samuol P. McConnell, the
Democratic nominee, has been elected by a
Later The majority for Cregier is 10,.

Last fall it was 122,000.

Cottoxwood Falls, Kan., April 3. A

this town as an insult to those who were

sult was that Mrs. Minuie D. Morgan was

composed of the most prominent ladies in tbe
town, will aid her in administering affairs.

Washington Citt, April 8. The senate
special session being adjourned public inter
est now centers at tbe White House, where
all appointments of any importance will be
announced. Tbat many will be made dur
ing the next few weeks no one doubts.
There are a large number of desirable offices
left and an impression exists tbat the only
reason that more of them have not been
filled is that tbe president has selected per
sons for them whom te was afraid the sen
ate might not confirm. Among the best of
the plums tbat are still to be plucked are
the German, Chinese, Grecian, aud Turkish
missions, the public printer, chief of tbe
bureau of engraving and printing, an asso
ciate justice of the supreme court, nearly
all the consulships, commissioners of the Dis
trict of Columbia, directors of the mint,
three comptrollers, six auditors, commis
sioners of the general land office and of In
dian affairs, and scores upon scores of post
masters, collectors of customs, and collectors
of internal revenue. Much interest is mani
fested in h probable policy of tbe adminis
tration regarding tbe tenure of office ques
tion. Owing to the delay tbat Cleveland
caused in not sending more nominations to tbe
senate during tbe sjiecial session t housands of
appointments were not confirmed untd the
winter of or HK. If the president should
decide to let the Democrats remain undis
turbed until their terras expire there will be
lots of Republican place-hunters kept in sus
pense for montbs to come.
It can not be said that the senators are as
happy as they would like to be. In fact, very
few are satisfied. The men they wanted to
have places given to have not got tbem, and
the president has taken the bit in bis teeth in
this matter in a way they despise. Perhaps
a vacation will cooi ttem off, but just now
everybody is kicking.
This amuses the Democratic senators, for it
is now l heir turn to laugh and appreciate how
much the other side enjoyed their discomfit
ure four yenrs ago. A Democrat with a sta
tistical mm of mind has mad up a compari
son between tbe Cleveland and Harrison ad
ministration. In both cases a special session
of the senate began March 4 and lasted until
April 2. Cleveland sent in 171 nominations,
of which twelve were not acted upon, and
two were rejected. Se what Harrison has
dona During the same period he has sent in
S74 nominations. The senate confirmed 259
of them, tieMJas a long string of army and
navy promotions. Two were rejected and
two were withdrawn. These figures have
The Illinois senators just sew have a new
grievance in tbe selection for assistant patent
commissioner. The nomination of Robert J.
Fisher for that place is the trouble. Neither
senators nor congressmen ever intimated to
the president tbat they desired his appoint
ment On the contrary they bad indorsed
Frank T. Brown. Although Fisher is cred
ited with being- well qualified for the position
the Illinois delegation is disgusted to think
that a man whom not one of them had sug
gested should be taken from their state.
The following nominations are left uncon
firmed by the senate:' William H. White
man, associate justice supreme court of New
Mexico; Edwin L Kursheedt, marshal for
the district of Louisiana; David M. Lines,
special examiner of drugs, etc, at New Or
leans; aud Robert F. Robert, postmaster for
Rush vi lie, Ind. The Whiteman nomination
was referred lck to the presi.ient with tbe
papers in tbe case. It fails for v. out of con
firmation. The Last Confirmations.

The Senate Through Till December.
Washinoton Citt, April 3 The United
States sonata adjourned until Dtreinber yes
terday, tbe only interesting business being a
discussion on rite wart's resolution of sorrow
at tbe death of John Bright When it was
laid before the senate Sherman suggested
that it be referred to the foreigu relations
committee, on tbe ground that its adoption
might establish a precedent that would re
turn to plague tbe senate. A resolution was
offered by Edmunds designating Ingalla as
president pro tempore in the absence of Mor
ton, and it was adopted and Inpalls sworn in,
after w hich he returned thanks for the honor.
A secret session was held, after which the
nual adjournment took place.
Did tb Calliope Go Down ?
Washington .Citt, April 8. Naval offi
cers are somewhat surprised tbat nothing
hmt yet been beard of tbe British warship
Calliope, which left the harbor of Apia dur
ing the hurricane that destroyed the Ameri
can and German vessels. The Calliope has
bad ample time to reach Sydney, ber sup
posed destination, but her arrival has not yet
been announced; so it is fair to assume tbat
she has not reached tbat port The dispatch
sent to the state department from Berlin by
Minister Pendleton stated that the Calliope
was badly damaged, and if this be true than
is a probability that she may have gone
down or been ewiously disabled by the hur
ricane. Ovation to Uncle Sam.

An American Contractor's Opinion of the
Washington City, April 3. Mr. James
Mc Arthur, senior member of the well-known
Ann of McArthur Bros., railroad con
tractors, of Chicago, who is now in Chili per
fecting arrangements for building several
hundred miles of railroad there, has writ
ten a letter from Iquique, Chili, just re
ceived here, in which be expresses his opin
ion on the Panama canal. Mr. McArthur,
while en bis way to South America, spent
several days examining the Panama canal,
and in his letter thus epitomizes his views of
tbe impract icability of tbat great engineer
ing project He says:
"The Panama cnual is a stupendous fail
ure. I have gone over tbe whole
of it; the heavy work, the summit
section of several miles, I traveled
over on foot. Much of the work has already
stopped, and it i- reported that tbe whole ot
it will stop in a few days. 1 saw all of the
machinery and some part of every class of it
at work. Tbe canal is a monument to in
competency, lotb in its design ami execu
tion, so far as work has progressed on it, and
it is scarcely be,un. The only work which
has a business-like look is that done ly the
American contractors on tbe east end of the
''The whole scheme hss been carried on in
a most wasteful and extravagant manner.
The original plan of an ocean level canal wan
almost a physical impossibility. If possible
at all it would lankrupt even the govern
ment of France to carry out such a schema
It would cost more than did the Franco-German
war, more than did our civil war. The
original plan was to cut through the Isthmus
make a tide-level canal, without locks. This
plan was changed Uj one with locks, raising
the summit level forty six metres (over 150
feet) above tide. The change was an improve
ment, only tbat there is no water to supply
the summit level, except by pumping it up
from the ocean.
"Mow, a canal without water is not useful
hardly ornamentaland to pump water
150 feet high to supply it would cost more
than the revenues of the canal Even on
this changed plan, after expending more
than three times the original estimate, the
canal is not one-fifth completed. There are
other and serious objActions to it, and though
better than the first plan, it may still be
called impracticable on account of the ex
cessive cost of construction and mainten
ance. The scheme is dead, at least until a
new crop of fools shall grow up."
