The Soudan prophet who , acting as
in ally of Arabi , hits produced such a
lonaternation among the Mohnmtno- an
Ian * , has arrived in Nubia , Upper pcmi
2gypt , not far to southward of Thebes , that
vhoro four thousand years ago , the thW
lifitorian tolls us , the Nile was bridged at
rom shore to shore , and 5,000,000 of
eoplo were worshipers in the tomnle
ibolak. The ease with which thia po
irophot has been able to ( .fleet the
rjrtual conquest of the Soudan , with o
to 30,000,000 of souls , is not Bur-
iriaiug when the isolation of that
Jontral African region from the par- sti .
ut government at Cairo is consider-
d. Ismail Poaha , who , with all of
tis faults , waa a shrewd sovereign ,
ised to say , when ho was told of any
iionumontal piece of rascality in the
ioudan provinces , "What can I do ? die
ly upper territory is distant from the Fr
apital a month by the swiftest means ret ;
transit , and any governor general I KHHi
lay appoint roon assumes the prero- Hi
ativea of a kin ; ; , and the Soudan Is hit
bus virtually independent. " Few of thi
the khodivo'a lieutenants at Khartoum
the real capital of Central Africa-
it Sir Samuel Baker and Col. Gordon
bo accepted , have had any other * ca
reers than that of robbers of the treas
ury , oppressors of the people , and
outivo promoters of the slave trade
and all local schemes of conquest. The
Arab tribes , whoso members are di
rect and unalloyed descendants of the
best blood of Arabia , where the stand
ard of Moslem honor and peraonal
purity is the highest in the Mohnin-
mcdan world , have been mtny times
within the past fifteen years on the
vcrgo of revolt against the E try plain
rule because of its corrupt ana ruth
less character. On ono occasion dur
ing the reign of Moontarz Paslm at
Khartoum an official who constantly
proclaimed hinieelf the disciple of
Voltaire ho wns visited by a body ot
devout and honorable shicks from the
surrounding tribes , and they protest
ed with elaborate solemnity against
Hs sacrilege. His reply was , order
ing them from thodivan , "I will shoot
your religion ! " It was not long nftor
that Moonttuz died suddenly it was
supposed from a doao of powdered
glass , which the export Oriental can
with so little difliculty introduce into
the little cup of black coffee so often
during the day a tender of courtesy.
F.vcls like this , of frequent occur
rence in the Soudan , served only to
deepen the fanaticism of the popula
tions along the Blue and White Nilca ,
where there ia little industry beyond
the gymnastics of prayer. Thus is
revealed how easy a Usk it has boon
for El Mohdi to rouse the people to
opposition to organize a crusade after
the true method of the original
Mohammed , and with the crescent to
the fore enlist the hundteds of thous
ands of well-mounted and physically
well-formed Arabs , whoso habitations
when stationary are iu * 4io fertile
oases lying between the main stream
and tlio lied sea. Nor is thia all.
The annexation of Kordofan * and
Darfour brought hnrdy warriors
ready to bo moved by _ an elo
quent sheik with flowing beard
and. a magnetic person such as this
now chieftain seems to bo. They nro
many times superior to the troops of
Lower Egypt. On every occasion of
u revolt the Central African Arabs
and the negro races annexed by con
quest have shown their utter innilToi-
ence to their adversaries from thu del
ta region. The mixed racoa of thn
Soudan , too , are also deeply inibiud
with the spirit of religious fervor
those inhabitants descended from
Arab fathers and negro mothers.
Some of these bastard races are ns
line specimens of physique as
can bo found anywhere no
tably the Dunogoloweo , who como
from the great bend of the Nile , andao
employed by the slave traders aa sol
diers on their expeditions for "black
ivory" into the interior. Their aver
age height ia over six foot. They ate
fearless in the water among crocodiles
and in the jungle among beasts of
prey : they can handle the elephant
gun and the spear , and understand
the art of strangling. This race some
"years ago endeavored , to .aatabliah-an
independent kingdom ; but , after the
usual Egyptian fashion , their chiefs
were invited to a grand and friendly
banquet at the government house , and
during the height of festivities wore
suddenly massacred by troops in am
bush j ,
With recruits like these different
races of the Soudan having the blood
of the negro , the Saracen , the Tuik
and the Egyptian , and fired by the
Moslem enthusiam El Mohdi has
had no difliculty in arousing a popular
uprioing along the line of the march ,
which haa brought him eight hun
dred miles to the northward of Khar
toum and within ono thousand miles
of Cairo. As it is now high Nile
where ho and his followers now are
that is , near the first cataract , iho
journey down the river can scarcely bo
any considerable effort , as the velocity
of the stream ia throe miles an hour.
There are always at that point
of the river many transports ,
nuggors and a Einill iloot
of steamers. fl.s oU > ci means
of transportation for hia horde
consist of the many thousand camels
and dromedaries whiah can bo driven
in from the desert , both as baggage
convoys and to mount the invading
forco. Passing through Nubia the
prophet will find a wretched country ,
peopled by wretched natives , forvrhom
