have been carefully nursed. Addi

QUO in number ; the Syrian Christians ,
nnd the Europeans. The Syrian
Christians nro money-lenders , nnd of
them Mr. Wolf Bays : "Their true
position of power is as clerks and in.
torproters to the European oftlcials of
whom very few can speak Arabic ,
and to whom they have inado thorn-
sulvca thus n necessity. They
are the ncnoral retailers of
news , supplying the European Con
sulates and newspaper oom-Bpomlents
with intelligence , and serving the
speculators on the stock exchange by
tipnnding sensational reports , Thu

bo roughly divided as follows. Itnli-

other nationalities , 1,000 ; total , ilfl , .

In Mr. WuH'a opinion ,
H nn honest , and , certainly from nn
jj ! > yptinn standpoint , a highly edu
cated and iniolligont man. lie fully
predates his position. Says Mr
Wolf : "Ho has calculated the cost ,
aid : will not shrink from the ronpinvri-
lility. Ho knows all about the United
jtatrs , its history and struggles , nnd
old me repeatedly that his duairo was

ernment. When I presented him
vith a copy of the biography f ( Ur

wo ld have it translated into Arabic ,

From the fanaticism of the Arab , but
rather the cupidity and so-called di
plomacy of the great powers.
THE KHEDIVE ,
For whom I have the highest respect ,
a mild-mannered man , ono who
moans well , but lacks force and do-
formation. Having boon created by
England and France , he , of course , IB
under thuir influence , especially that
of England , and therefore thu na
tional leaders distrust and shun him.
The Shoika are in full sympathy with
Arabi , nnd not vith the Khedive.
Tewlik would no doubt like to throw
off the shackles , t but ho is too
tightly bound , and lili native indoloncu

Mr. Wolf dot's not think that there
any cjuso for tie flight of Amer-
uans from Egypt. If there should be
