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

thiR thorough confluence in itself that
it finds its i h.ef sirength.

agination to invent grounds acceptable
or not, for the everlasting prolongation
of the British occupation, but whatever
happens, whatever responses he re.

"That is my tirrn conviction, based
upon a number of conversations I had
