Henri Kochefort Has to Say of England and Esrypt. Frotests of the Powers Will Not Serve to Accomplish That Object, Though They May Be Driven Ont by the Soldiers of the Soudanese. NEW YORK, April 3.—A dispatch from Paris says the Euroienn edition of The Herald prints tho following signed statement from M. Henri Kochefort: "There are two things to which Eng land will never consent—the construc tion of a bridge over the channel, and the evacuation of Egypt. Mr. Cavendish-Bentinck, a member of her Brittanic majesty's privy coun cil, once said to mo, in London: •We are perfectly willing to allow engineers to study the means of linking .(treat Britain with the continent of Europe, but the strait, which we call our silver Htreak, is our defense, and we shall never allow it to be bridged.' "Much the same holds good with re* gard to Egypt. England will let the powers continue to protest against the continual delays in the evacuation of Egypt, but they are dai'y growing more determined not to qivt. Her majesty's government professes fur the diplomacy of Europe, artieuiarly for the diplo xnacy of France, an immense disdain. It believes, rhups with good reason, that it is equal to the task of playing rff all the Taller rands and all the Alet terniehs of the oM world, and it is in thiR thorough confluence in itself that it finds its i h.ef sirength. Inv.iitr ,)u»tify Refusal. "The expedition to Dongola, per rhance to ^uakim, was invented only )n order to justify a refusal to withdraw from Egypt the army, which Lord Sal isbury, on the contrary, has decided upon re-inforcing. "He is not a little pugnacious by character. HP will evoke the specter of a Soudanese invasion in the event of a defeat comparable to that of 1S84, when, of the 1U.IHH) men under General Hicks, not one returned to toll the story of the disaster. He will rack his ini agination to invent grounds acceptable or not, for the everlasting prolongation of the British occupation, but whatever happens, whatever responses he re. ceives, or whatever objections may be ntade, he will not evacuate Egypt. "That is my tirrn conviction, based upon a number of conversations I had on the subject with several members of the house of commons, particularly with Irish members who, being opposed to English policy, had no reason to con ceal its ur.der currents from me. Auotber 1'aril to ihe BritUh. •'But, although the danger of Eu ropean diplomatic action troubles but little an English ministry which turns up its nose at Europe and its diplo macy, there is another peril rising up before British pride, that causes temr to men like Lord Cromer, the most expert of all statesmen iu Egyptian affairs, the possibility of defeat before Dongola. ••With her fet, E:i ":nnd cau in our part of the jr.obe. hop..- to iueet every move and bod i:er own against all :i. *he cau count her soldiers ..
