Moroco tu agnln vindicated Iti ancient
tltla of the "China of the West." An In
surrection has rent the sultanate ot Muley
'Abdul Ails, which In orlgta la atrlklngly
elmllar to tha Boxer outbreak of 1900 In the
Flowery Kingdom. In both cases, relates
tha New York Tribune, It haa been. a revolt

In 1834, although only a lad of 13. la aald
'to bare already evinced a yearning for bet-
tar thing, lie read the histories of the
powerful natlona of the earth, and In hl
boyish fancy ha believed that Morocco, In
spite of all Its centuries of murder, fratri
cide, cruelty and rapine, could be lifted to
higher level. When Bid Ahmed, his
I (rand vlxler, the chief exponent of the Ma.
'hometan extremists, died a year ago, the
J young sultan began to show his band more
i boldly. Ha treated foreigners courteously,
j sometimes spoke with them In their own
language, and, to the horror of the gray
beards of Fez. he rode about its streets In
The rumbling of discontent with which
these Innovations were greeted rapidly
grew louder and louder. Then the sultan
committed an act which, according to the
most ritualistic Mahometans, was regarded
'as utter sacrilege. An Arab who had shot
down In the streets of Fes a Christian mis
sionary end then taken refuge In the tomb
ot Mulal-Idris was adjudged guilty by the
sultan. Notwithstanding the murderer waa
found within the sacred precincts of the
tomb of a descendent of the Prophet, the
man was arrested at the aultan's orders snd
publicly shot In ths arsenal square.
"Abdul Axis has licked the feet of tha
Christian dogs," murmured the gossips of
Fez, and the murmur wect from city to city
and from the ocean to tho desert. Uprisings
were reported from tho plains of the In
terior Inhabited by the most fanatical de
scendants of the Mahometan Invaders. Only
a lender waa needed, and he soon came for
ward. A fanatic came down from tha Atlas
mountains, riding a donkey, with a prayer
rug carried before him. Hordea soon were
marching at his heels, and although the
next day they might desert their new leader
for the sultan, they showed how thoroughly
their old traditional jealousies had been
aroused. Another Insurrection waa afoot,
and Morocco had again called the attention
or the civilized world to Ita wretchedness.
Kill to the Foundation.
According to travelers, tha condition of
Morocco at bottom Is aa evil today aa In the
time ot Arahld, the flrst aultan. The sur
ibco, as may te seen by foreigners, may
present a little fairer view, but It la a var
nish which tbo flame of Insurrection Is lia
ble to shrivel to dust. The old foundations
of the government are said still to stand on
blackmail, extortion and crime. ' Despite tha
liberal hopes of -the present aultan, his
Bashaws and Kalds, as of old, regard their
offices simply as a means ot persecution and
theft, and It is In part because of their dis
affection toward the liberal views ot Abdul
Aitf that the crusade ot ths pretender
gained such an Impetua. ' "
According to long-established custom,
which Abdul Axil has sought to reform, but
t the pertt of his throne, the sultan ot Mo
rocco obtains his revenue chlejly by oppres
sion. Besides compelling the Jews to pre
sent him with rich gifts on his birthdays
and levying poll taxea on all Hebrew sub
Joets, the aultan was used to confiscate the
entire property of any citizen whose wealth
appeared especially attractive. Such an un
fortunate would be simply cast into prison
witnout the opportunity of defense or re
dress. The sultan also levied taxes, osten-
iuij ior ids support or nis army, but as a
matter of fact to fill his private purse.
I'nder a sultan like Muley Hassan, the
father or the present ruler, every subordi
nate In the government, from the bashaws
down to the most Inferior officer obtained
, his Income by similar methods of extor
tion. Citliens were arrested, for example,
on false charges and confined In prison
until they bad paid for their freedom.
Merchants known to be rich were sub
jected to the thumbscrew, or other means
of still more refined torture, until they
divulged where their riches were hidden.
Open blackmail was also employed, and
thus a citizen waa told he would not be
Injured or thrown Into prison, or other
wise molested, if he paid such and auch an
officer a certain sum.
Occasionally a bashaw or kald. or some
other Inferior potentate, became too
wealthy by auch means and attracted the
attention of the sultan. In auch an event
the sultan simply cast the upstart Into
prison and pocketed the wealth himself.

In the reign ot Muley Hassan tells ot the
following case of perfidy snd utter cruelty

The prisons of Morocco best illustrate,
perhaps, the titter depravity of Ita govern
ment. Ia most esses the prison Is merely
pit, open to the air and rain overhead,
with bnly the ground for a floor. Here the
Innocent and the criminal are baddled to
gether Indiscriminately. They are like ani
mals In a pen. There are no means of sani
tation. The prisons sre no expense to the
stste, ss the Inmates must purchase their
own food. Should one at last become pan
pert red he then gets only a piece of coarse
bread, barely sufficient to prolong the
agonies of starvation. Water Is granted
these prisoners only every other day, and It
la said that they become so thirsty from
ths tropical heat and their close confine
ment that they fight over a cup of water
like dogs over a bone. No list Is kept of
the prisoners of Morocco. A man simply
The constant fear of confiscation and Im
prisonment haa stifled all the Industries of
Morocco. A man Is afraid to become
wealthy, or eten to own more than the bare
necessities of life. Miles on miles of fertile
plain and mountain plateau He barren be
cause the owner ot the land la afraid to cul
tivate It. Wheat and barley, coffee and
sugarcane could be grown and a prosperous
trade established with the European porta
across the Mediterranean, but Instead the
terror-stricken subjects barely raise enough
grain to supply their own needs. As soon
aa a crop falls the country Is prostrated
with a famine.
The population of Morocco haa defied the
statistician. Some of the cities of Its plain
are closed against the foot of a white man
and the wild tribes or the mountain, which
have now poured down from their fastnesses
to sack the city of Fes, have never been
counted, for among them the art of counting
la confined to fingers and thumbs. The ma
jority of writers, however, agree that the
sultan rules ever from 4,000,000 to 6.000.000
people, or about the same number that live
In either Ohio or Pennsylvania. The boun
daries of this country where It extends Into
the desert are loosely defined, but by the
least conservative estimate the area of Mo
roc co la 810.000 square miles, or about the
size of Texas and Louisiana.
Since the Arabs first penetrated Into Mo
rocco in the aixth century and the fierce
trlbea or the Atlaa mountains were finally
overcome, four distinct racea have emerged.
There Is first the Berber, the descendant or
the aborigine, or fine physique, courageous
temperate and industrious. The Berber
tribes are the chief agriculturists, snd by
reason of,, their skill aa masons they live In
stone houses and are to be found for the
most part In the mountainous districts.
xne Arabs ana Moors nave a common an
cestry, but because the Moor has for cen
turies lived in tha city, while the Arab still
clings to his tent and roves over the plain,
tha former has acquired polished manners
and city ways. For this reason he thinks
himself superior to his country cousins.
Both -are descended from Mahometan In
According to Jewish writers, the Hebrews
of Morocco form about 25 per cent of the
population. They are to be found in ths
cities and closely restricted to a certain
quarter, outside of which until recently they
were not permitted unless barefoot. They
are the aole dealers In bullion, and many
have secretly acquired considerable wealth.
The Jew la continually reviled by the Moor,
but as he has learned that the slightest re
tallatlon means Imprisonment, If not death,
he accepts this treatment aa the Inevitable.
Many Jews have sought the protection of
foreigners, and thua enjoy certain liberties,
the Infringement of which would cause the
Intervention of an outside power. It has.
accordingly, been the recent custom of a
Jew on becoming prosperous to put himself
under the protection ot a foreign repre

OMAHA, Jan. 14. To the Editor of The
Bee: I noticed recently under the caption
"A Brave Fight for Life," a story taken from
the Chlrsgo Inter Ocean, which evidently Is
a recital or my own experience with Mosby'a
men during the civil war. Who tha writer
Is, cr bow ths Chicago psper secured ths
story. Is unknown to me. but tha story Is
full of errors and lacks detail, showing that
the writer Is not well posted or has forgot

tell that, for as printed. It la an abbreviated

This being the first time that I ever saw tt
In print I desire to have tt appear cor

In December, 1864. quits a large body ot
cavalry was gathered In the lower part of
the Shenadoah valley, preparing to make
a raid toward Oordonsvllle, Vs. Tho raid
resulted In no particular Importance until
our return. About one mile from the town
of Warrenton I got mto a bad acrape, an
experience which I will never forget. I hod
gone to a well to fill my canteen and re

mount when two strangers, dressed in blue,
with rubber ponchos which covered their
shoulders, came to where I was standing.
They held their revolvers under the ponchos
In such a manner that the weapons were
concealed. My command at this time waa
about fifty rods distant, riding from us.
One of the strangers said: "Come around
the corner of the house quick, or we'll scat

I sought to determine whether or not It
Was a Joke. While I was dpll hemtlno- m

of the men, while the other took chargo ot
my horse. Then I was rushed around tho
corner of the house out of sight. Here we
all mounted and rode leisurely toward

At this time a squad of our men was riding
along the road, but waa unable to realize

started toward the town with me. On the
way he aald that his comrades had been
mingling with our men In the1 town and on
the road. From hla conversation I was led
to believe that they were Mosby's scouts,
or spies, as we rode back Into the town
I saw plenty of Mosby's troopers, dressed In
blue and gray clothes, though we saw none
or them when our troops passed through
the town. In front of that leader's head
quarters I aaw a number of prisoners sur

said, he could help relieve a Yankee pay
master of his greenbacks once In a while,
which he did by going to Washington and
spying out Information presumably at Mrs.

that hla cause had 300,000 men enlisted and
that we would have to wslk over their dead

cotlred that he kept his pistol Inside his

not locked. I removed my boots, and with
my aaddle I made a headrest. Our over
coats served aa coverings. I was never
snore awake In my Ufa. My guard acted
aa though he desired me to go to Bleep
first, so I laid quiet and breathed heavy.
About midnight I surmised that Towell
was soundly sleeping. I rslsed myself
slowly to a sitting posture, moving csu
tlously to determine If he would discover
my actions. Taking my clothing, I reached
the window and raised It csutiously. The
moon shone between some clouds Just at
that moment and bad Powell awakened I
would have made an excellent target aa I
clambered through the window. Once out
side I escaped for the woods.
I had noticed a road running In a west
erly direction and this I those. Intending
to reach the-Bine Ridge, which I could fol

reached a river, filled with floating lea.

It was Christmas day, 1864. No other
alternative left but to remove my clothing,
I did so, aradad tnta ths chilling stream,
hauling with the Ice to prevent being car

ached. I became numb and half blind. I
thought that I would perish but fin ally
was able, half para trued, to reach tha ap
posite shore, where I revived myself by
brisk rubbing. I dressed and ran aa hard
aa I could to start my blood circulating.
About daylight a group of horsemen passed
on the road, while I sought concealment
behind a tree. A dense fog prevailed, which
aided ma In toy tramp across the field and
through woods. The weather cleared at
noon and I discovered the Bine Ridge Just
before ma. At the time I was ia an open

and I was cold, stiff and sore In everv

hungry. Seeing a large, well-lighted house,
about midnight, I surmised that the In.
