The Howllnjr DervUlirs Said to
Nnnrters In Their I.Iiip.
New Yokk, Aug. 2. Tho thirty howl
ing dervishes, who nrrlved ut this port
on last Friday, wero landed ut Kills Isl
nnd yesterday, and later taken In u
largo express wagon to an up-towa
hotel. These nre no ordinary fanatics,
but dervishes of tha most howling kind.
Each ono Is said to Iks a high priest of
his order. They wero gathered from
different parts of Egypt and tho Sou
dun. Some of them come from Khar
toum, and profess to havo known tho
late Gen. Gordon while ho wus besieged
ut that place. Their costumes consist
of flowing robes and turbans of many
colors. During their progress up Hroad
wuy they uttraeted considerable atten
tion One of them held a spear und
another btroked the fur of a large tiger
cat All looked wild and picturesque.
Although these dervishes while at homo
devote, most of their time to prayer and
believe In Allah as the only Ood, and In
Mohammed as his prophet, their mis
sion to this hind is not to make con
verts but to take in American dollars,
by giving exhibitions through tho
country. Incidentally they will exhib
it themselves ut tho world's fatr. Among
tho things they do with tho special per
mission of Allah and his prophet are
dancing barefooted on sharp swords and
cut glass, swallowing live snakes, eating
pounded glass and burning coals aud
cutting olf each other's heads. Thoro
are three sects of them the Sa.'dy or
dancers, the Melawy or howlers and
general magicians, and the Kndry or
fire-eaters. They do not neglect their
prayers while here, but devote several
hours each day to that duty. During
prayers they face tho north, pray alone
und in tho absence of "unbelieving'
dogs" howl to their hearts' content
