ISSObu Vntnkfl , Cfl T < : iltfr.1 CAIIIO , Etfyi't , Juno 10 [ Special to TrtK Br.B. ] I have Just returned from n long audlenco with the Wiodlvo of Egypt. Klicdivo Is a 1'cralaU'Ar.iblo word meaning king , nnd Mohnnicd Towfllc occunlcs much the same position now as the Phuronhs did In the days of Mose nnd Joseph. It Is true that ho Is In n measure the vassal of the AUltnn , to whom ho pays n trlbuto of about thrcu nnd throo- ijuartors of ( i million dollnrn n year , and that ho 1ms nlso several European advisors who keep fchurp watch over the revenues of his kingdom , to see that n great part of them go to pav the Interest on the debts which his predecessor and his government lutvo con tracted and which nro hold by the bankers of Kuropo. But ho Is , nevertheless , the king of Efiypt , nnd as kings go to-day , ho has moro power than moU ot the tnonurchs of Europo. His residence in Cairo Is a tjraml palnco with hundreds of rooms filled with jnagnltlccnt furniture. Ho drives about the city with soldiers carrying Bwordc , riding prancing horses In front ot his carriage and with a score of cavalry fol lowing behind. His personal expenses are limited to ? 500,000 A vr.An , nnd ho has several palaces- outside of the ono which ho occupies In Cairo. Ono of those Is the UnKQltln palace , which Mo Ilatnot Ah built on the sea shore near Alexandria , an other la nt Holouuu , in upper Egypt , and n third la nt Kouuoh , the khcdlvo's country neat Just outside of Cairo , near the slto of the old city of the sun , whore Plato taught philosophy and Herodotus studied nlstnry. The khcdivo's nrusent rcsldoncu is the A.b- don palace in the heart of Cairo. And It was here that I met his highness this morn ing. The interview had boon arranged by the American consul ecncrnl , Colonel Card- well , and the consul general nud myself loft tlio consulate at a little after 10 la the con sular carriage. The dragoman of the legation , a brlght-oyod Syrian , in tlio most gorgeous of Turkish clothes of brown eovorod with gold em broidery and with a great sword shaped like a c.vmcitor clanking at his. side , opened the carriage door for us and took Ills seat by the coauhman. The Arabian Jehu crhls aukcd whip and away ho xveni through the narrow streets of Cairo. Wo drove by the modern European mansion ! ! ol the rich Greeks , uast tlio palaces uf Egyptian princes from which the swuot smell of the orimgo flowers caine nnd ever which whispered broad .spreading palms , Wo tbon wont through n business street of Cairo , amid droves of donkeys , through n caravan of uamola by veiled women clad in bhick and looking likn baleens upon donkeys , In front of the palace In which Ismail Pasha had his harem when ho was khodlvo and In which I doubt not the present khedlvo played us a boy when his father was on the tfirono nnd on into great siimioof many acres , on the right of which were vast barrack * tilled with Arab -troops In blue uniforms 'and fez caps , and In the midst , ol which a regiment of Egyptian troops were going through a gyuinustlo drill nnd performing the motions us well to-day us they did at the time when our American General Stone was their eommnniier , and when General Grant reviewed them and Bald that they Rccmed to bo good soldiers for everything except lighting. At the end of this great square , in the form ot ahorse shoe , is the Abdcu palnr ? , It is a vast building of two stories , of brown stucco , with many windows und n grand en trance way m tlio center. At the loft there is u door which lends to the harem , and as our narHago drove up wo were passed by a closed coach drawn by two magnificent Arabian horses , on the box of which , beside the liverlcu coachman , sat a oobor-faccU eunuch , whoso black skin nnd dark clothes wore all the more somber under the bright red skull cap winch lie woro. In the front of tlio carriage run two licet scycos with wands or stuffs hold up in the air In front of them , wanting plebeians to got out of the way. and I was told the carriage was that of a princess who was about to make a call upon the kcdlvoh or queen. These scyces are n part of every nobleman's turnout when lie drives throughout Egypt , and the runners are among the most plcturrsquo sights of this land of the Pharoahs. At the door of the palace stood two pom pous soldfers with great swords In their hands. They were clad In n Turkish cos tume with embroidered jackets of blue and gold , with full zouave trousers 01 blue broadcloth. Upon their heads wore tur bans , nud the faces that stiono out uudor these were such that they made mo think of the troous that conquered this oriental world in tlio days of the prophet Mohammed. Passing up the massive steps , the door was opened by an Arab clad In European clothes and wearing the rcu fez cap , which the Egyptian never takes oil , in house or out. "Wo entered a grand entrance hall , floored with marble mosaic , the walls of which were IN CllEAM AND GOLD. In front of us a staircase so wide that two wngon lotuts of hay could bo drawn up it without touching , lead by easy ( lights to the second iloor , ana at the right and the loft were the reception rooms for-vlsltors and halls leading to the apartments reserved for the chamberlains , musters of ceremonies mid other ofllcluls of the king's household. \Vo chatted a moment with ono or two of the khculvu's cabinet ministers , who were just passing out after a council with his highness , and then moved on up the stairs. In ono of the drawing-rooms on the second floor wo were met by another Egyptian official In black clothes and rod fez cap and by linn were conducted to a reception room. the door of which stood open , and were mo tioned to enter. , In the center of this room , which wai not larger than a gor.d-slzcd American parlor , all alone stood n man of , about thirty-six years of ago , Ho was dressed In a black broad cloth coat which buttoned close up at the neck lko | that of a preacher. Lavender pan taloons showed out below this , fitting well down ever a pair of gaiter- like pumps , and an the lop of this rather handsome head was a fez cap of dark rod with a black silk tass n extending from the center of the crown and tailing down behind. The costume of this mun , barring the fez , might have boon that of uu American , and his Circassian cream. colored complexion was such that he would have passed unnoticed In a crowd in Now York. This man \vaa the lihedlvo of Egypt. Ho is. I Judge , about live feat six inches in height , und lie does not weigh more than ono hundred and Ufty ( pounds. Ho Is rather lloshy than thin , his frame being well rounded , his head largo , and his fea tures clean cut. Ho has a nose slightly inclined to the Uoman. His forehead Is high and the dark brown eyes which shine out from under it change from the grave to the trailing durlnghls conversation. Ho Is plain and simple In both his habits ana dress. Ho hook Colonel Card well's ' hand cordially as ho entered mid upon the consul general present * Ing ino us uu American citizen , ho extended his hand to mo and told mo ho was glad to oe wo , and was a LAD TO IUVB AUSH10AN3 coma to Cairo , Ho then walked across the room to B divan and motioned in a to u seat at bis loft RS ho sat down , putting ono of his legs up under him and hanging the other foot on the tloor. There was an absence of pomp or snobbishness , nnd though dlKnlllcd.helind not naif the airs of the average bnoK woods members of our house of representatives at Washington. As ho seated himself , his Uluck coat opened nnd 1 noted the contrast between his costume and that of the gorgeous rajahs whom I met In India. His only Jewelry consisted of u sot of gold stud * tuo slzo of the smallest of peas , und a uutch chain of thin links of ( fold. Ho were a black necktie bow In Ins wnito turn-over collar , nuch ns you buy on lower Uroadway for 25 cents , and bis euff , though scrupulously clean , had not the polish of the American Chincto laundry. The Klicdivo of Egypt Ii a good French scholar , nud ho has learned to spcnk English within the past few years. Our talk was carried on In English , nnd his highness chat ted freely , noxv nnd then breaking out In n chuckling Inugh as something amusing en- tnred into tbo talk , nnd again growing sober and Impressive ns ho discussed the moro sober problems of his reign. In sculling of Ills life ns khedlvo , ho snldt "I am told that many puoplo envy mo my poflltlmi. They say that I am a young man , nnd that my lot must bo a pleasant ono. 'rhry do not understand the troubles that surround me , Many n time I would tinvo been glad to have laid down all of the honors I have ron nisr : AND rnicn , "My ton yonrs of rolun have boon equal ( o forty years of work nnd of worry. If life wore a matter of pleasure 1 would bo n fool to remain on the throne. I believe , hoxvovcr , that God put man on the world for n nurposo other than this , Duty , not pleasure , is the chief end of man. I do the best 1 can for my country nnd my people , nnd I fool tlio liauplost when I do the most work and when my work is the hardest.11 A * the khedlvo said these words I thought of the thorns which hnvo filled the downy pillow of bis reign , I thought of how , upon Ins entering manhood , his father Ismail was deposed and lie was put upon the throne. I thought ot hln troubles under the foreign dictation of thn past , of the plots and nearly successful rebellion of Arabl Pasha , of the revolution of the Mnhdl , and of the vulturo- like creditors who Unlay are grinding Egypt between their upper and nether millstones , of the ploltings nud the Intrigues , of the danger of assassination , and of the other dangers whlr.li are over present about the throne of an oriental monarch , and I could appreciate why his mouth hardened nud his eycagrow serious when ho uttoreU the above remark. The talk then turned upon the condition of Egypt and Its future , but ns to this the klmr was reticent. Ho spoke proudly of the reforms which ho had inaugurated in gov ernment and of the fact that now , though the taxes were heavy , every pensnnt knew Just what his taxes were to bo and that they were honestly collected. Ho spoke of tbo improvements of the courts timl said that the pitslia and the fcllnhln now stood on the same- footing before the law. "When I came to the throno. " saiil ho , "tho people were surprised that I uut the prlnco on the same footing ns other people bcforo the courts. Now , tlmnlc God , there la no difference in justice , Tlio prince nndthe fellah are the same In our courts and the former may bo punished like the latter. " CofTco and cigarettes were at this point brought in by the servants of the palace. The coffee was a In Turquo. It was served In little chluu cups In holders of gold illll- greo , shaped like an otrg cup , and each cup held ubout three tahlnspoousful of rich , black coffee ns thick ns chocolate and as swcot as inolnsaoH. There was no saucers nor spoons , nnd I tried in my drinking to follow the khedlvo. I took the holder iu my fist and gulped down half the contents of the cup nt a swallow. It was ns hot as liquid lire. I could feel the top of my mouth raising In n blister , the tears came into my eyes and my stomach felt as though It had taken A ISTEKN.U. TUIIKISTI n.VTH. Tt was lucky that at'this moment the khe- plvo had Just addressed a remark to Consul General Cardwoll , who sat on the other side of him , and ho did not notice my emotion. Ho took the boiling mixture without wiuk- lilg und went on talking ns though his throat was used to liquid lire. I was sur prised to see him refuse the cigarette , and 1 usked him it he did not smokeHo replied ; "No. I neither sraoko nor drink. I do not drink on two grounds. I believe man is better off without it , ana what is of moro mo ment to mo it is against the laws of lifo us laid down in the Koran. AVe do not be lieve It right to drink anything .intoxicating and good Mussulmon drink neither wino nor liquor. I believe that every man should bo faithful to the religion which ho profossos. My faith Is that of Islam and I try to follow it as well as I can. I am not liberal In it , however , ntid I tolerate all religions and all sects in my kingdom. AVe have Copts , Jews and Christians , and your missionaries are at work hi the laud. They make very few con versions , if any , among the people of my faith , but they have schools in upper Egypt which nro doing much in the way of educa tion. You ask me as to my attendance upon the Mosque. Ves , I po regularly , and It was a surprise to the people of the court when I attended the Mosque immediately nftor my accession. " Colonel Cardwoll hero spoke of the kho- dlvo's knowledge ot the Koran and cited the fact that bis majesty. KNOWS"'run WIIOLK HOOK ny IIRAUT , and that be can commence at any point and recite It from ono end to the other. There H no doubt that the khcdivo has as much faith In his religion as wo have In ours , nnd he expressed - pressed himself here , Intimating that every man should abide by the faith of tils fathers. Ho referred to Mohammedan conversions In Africa und to the fact that there are moro than ono hundred millions of people In the world who believe the same as ho does. Ho spoke of the baud of ono hundred American Catholics who are stopping In Egypt ot ) their way to the holy land , nnd was interested in Colonel Caldwoll's description of the pil grimage which they are taking , In following the footsteps of Jesus and Mary. He spoke of the immense amounts brought Into Egypt by tourists , and said that it bettered the business of Egypt. Ho expressed great sorrow row at the prospect that Colonel Caldwell would , with the change of administra tion , probably bo recalled nnd another consul general appointed , and ho told mo that ho had written a per sonal letter to the president of the United States without the knowledge of Mr. CarUwell , asking him to retain him as his Consul general to Egypt. Throughout the whole conversation the talk was of the most cordial nnd unceremonious character , and I loft the imlneo with the impression that the khedive of Egypt Is a man of great com mon seuso , and ot more than ordinary abil ity. ity.Tho The khedive stands well with his people , nnd lending men of Cairo toll mo ho would do much for Egypt if he were not hampered by foreign Intervention. Ho gave up a num ber of his palaces a year or so ago and ho Is , for a king , most economical. Ho hns , as far as I can learn , no extravagant habits and no vices , and ho lives within the half million dollars , which is known as his civil list. Had other khcdlvcs of the past boon equally careful , Egypt would be a rich country to day instead of a mortgaged ono. He Is a mun of strong domestic tastes , nnd though a Mohammedan und an oriental king , ho is TIIU IIUSIUND or HUT oxi : WIFR , and ho Is ns true to her us the most chaste American. A friend of his gave mo to-nicht a talk ho recently had with him upon this subject , in which the khcdivo expressed himself strongly In favor of monogamy : "I saw , " said ho , "in my father's harem , the disadvantages of a plurality of wives and of httvlug children by different wives , nud I de cided before I came to manhood that I would marry but one woman and would bo true to her. I have done so and I bavo had no reason to regret it. " These words of the khedive ore verified by his wife. From what I cau leiirn his family lifo is.a happy one. Ho Is much In love with his wife and the khodlvloh Is said to be ono of the brightest women of Egypt. A lady friend of hers , who visits often at the royal harem , tolls mo that this queen of Egypt is both beautiful anil accomplished. She gives receptions to ladles at her palace every Saturday. She speaks French very well and she uses this language in her inter course with foreigners. Hbe is as sensible in her ways as her husband and n few days ago nt ono of her little receptions nt her country seat near Cairo ono ot the visitors expressed n desire to toe the ostrich farm , which is near tlioro. The queen than pro posed that the whole party go ever and visit it nnd this they did , WAUUNO TUUOUOH THE F1K1.D3 and along the road the whole distance. I cite this merely as an Instance of the un < ostentation which she usually shows. It must not bo supposed , however , that ko does not llvo llko a queen. She has her harem or women servants by scores , She is accompanied whenever she goes out to ride or drive by some of her numoroiis eunuchs and she Uoops up a big establishment separate from that of tlio king. When she sits down to dinner or breakfast It is noi with the king , but with her own ladies , The king eats with his oBlcora , according to Mohammedan etiquette , and his apart , mcnts or the salumhk ore separate from hers. Both she and her husband have done mucli to break down the rigidity of Mobum * ineduu social custom * . The love for oaon other , and the example of tbo khedlve lu having but one wife , Consul General Card- well tolls mo , is catching , nnd many ot the other nob'.o Arab gentlemen are following It. The khcdivo takes his wife with him wherever ho poos. She does not usually travel on the same train , nor It PO , in the tmmo car. She has stuck to tlio khcdivo through the stormiest times of the rolgn and during the last war she refused to po on the Enalish gunboats when Invited to tlo BO for safety. She Is close In the councils of her husband , I nin told , nnd It Is said that ho has great confidence in her Judgment. l.iotli the khcdivo nnd the khcdlvloh nro wrapped up In their children nnd I am told that they Intend to allow ono of their sons to i ko n trlu to America at no very distant dnto. They hnvo two boys and two girls. The boys are Abbas , who will bo fifteen yonrs old In July , and Mohomot All , who Is two years younger. Those boys nro now nt school In Berlin , They spcnk French , En glish , German nnd Arabic , nnd they nro , I urn told , very bright. The girls nro rnthnr pretty ; cream comploxloncd young mnldons of eight nnd ton , who nro ns much llko American girls ns they can bo considering their surroundings. They wear European clothes nnd mny bo seen along the son- shore nt Alexandria , walking together nud swinging their hats In their hands hko our llttlo girls nt Long llrnnch or Asbuty park , fl'hoy hnvo European governesses nnd tnlk French quito well. These children nro by no moans badly oft as regards money matters. The khedlvo's income Is big enough to onnblo him to pay all of tils expenses nnd his wlfo has an Indo * nondont fortune , which I'mn told brings her in about Hfty thousand a year roil riK MONKV. Abbas , the oldest son , IB the heir apparent , nnd ho gets nn allowance of seventy-five thousand n year , nnd nil have enough nnd to spare. Still , In comparison with the fortunes squandered by the families of the khcdivos of the past , this is nothing , and the pres ent khcdivo docs what any other mon arch of the world would not think of doing. The last year was n poor ono in kgypt , nnd the people were hardly nble to pay their taxes. In order to rollovo them somewhat , the khedive ordered that the salaries of nil the ofllcors should bo cut down for that yeiir 10 per cent , and ho set the example , I am told , by cutting that much off the allowance for his family , nnd dropped off ? 50,000 froui hla personal allowance for the suko of his puoplo. This docs not seem the net of n Phnronh. It is moro than that of n man and n Christian. It shows that this Mohammedan ruler Is a king In heart and soul us well ns position , mid mny well loao\us to wonder whether tills land under him if freed from dabt nnd unshackled bv shylocks would not rise to n higher nnd better civili zation than It hns ever had in the 0,000 yonrs of Its past.

It rallied last night and the mist rises from the valleys in clouds nnd hangs Ia7.ily over the grass.
