CRISIS IN EGYPTIAN AFFAIRS
Earl Orey &171 AtUcki on British Officers
Were Prompted by Fanatical Spirit.
STRENGTHENING OF GARRISON NECESSARY
l nleaa Lord Cromer la Energetically
Sapported flfaatlna May Develop
that Will Reqalre tera
TjOV1K)N. July i. Parliament and the
country were given a surprise tonight by
a sensational speech by 8lr Edward Grey,
the foreign secretary, on the situation in
Egypt. An Interesting debate on foielgn
affaire had been anticipated when the
House of Commons took up the foreign
estimates, hut on account of Russia and
the- Congo rather than Egypt- Other sub
jects, however, were temporarily shelved
when the house realised the momentous
character of 9lr Edward Orey'e deliver
ance with regard to Egypt.
Speaking In a solemn tone and amid a
tense alienee, the minister declared that
the recent attacks on Rrltleh officers at
Tantab were not accidental, but a deliber
ate manifestation of the fanatical spirit
which had necessitated the strengthening
of the garrison In Kgypti and declarej
that unleaa the authority of Lord Cromer
and the Egyptian government Is strongly
upheld, it might lead to a situation re
quiring the adoption of stern measures.
Debate on Foreign Estimates.
In the course of the consideration of the
foreign estimates by the House of Com
mons today several members offered criti
cisms, especially urging that a fleet be
not sent to Cronstadt.
John Dillon, nationalist, strongly de
nounced what he termed the brutal bar
barism of floggings and executions In
Egypt, accusing Sir Edward Grey, the for
eign secretary, of a desire to cloak the
Blr Edward. In a general reply, stated
that all foreign relations were friendly.
With regard to the Egyptian affairs, he
accepted full responsibility and pointed out
ht danger might accrue, when dealing
wl'h eastern peoples, through discussions
of this kind.
Earl Grey's Momentona Statement.
The secretary proceeded to refer to tha
local growth of fanatical feeling in Egypt
and throughout North Africa recently,
which might necessitate even further meas
ures to protect Europeans in Egypt; and,
speaking In a solemn manner, said:
"As things are now. I say delilierately
and with a full senne of responsibility, that
If Parliament does nothing at this mo
ment you will come face to face with a
very serious situation, for should fanati
cism get the better of constituted authority
there might arise the necessity for extreme
Dealing with the Congo question, the
foreign secretary said he distrusted the
proposed reforms, because the system was
wrong. He disliked trading companies snd
believed the root of the whole mischief
was In the system under which the state it-
aelf was a trading company and monopo
llat companies held administrative power.
If others would Join Great Britain In Insist
ing ofi reforms the govennnut would wel
come them. If the Congo stale talked of
Its rights. Sir EdwaTd said, Great Britain
alao had rights. The queation of the
reaervatlon of enormous armies for private
property must be dealt with, and If any
dispute arose there wss The Hague tribunal.
He believed It would be beneficial to re
sume British consular Jurisdiction, but It
would be discouraging Belgium from taking
over the Congo government and, therefore.
he thought, tha government should wait;
but they could not wait forever.
With regard to the proposed visit of a
British fleet to Cronstadt. the foreign secre
tary said hs felt assured that the central
government of Russia was neither aware
of nor had connived at the recent unfortun
ate occurrences. No Interference from the
outside wotild strengthen a reform party,
but rather the reactionaries or revolution
ists. As a British fleet waa In the Baltic last
year and had not " visited Russian ports.
It would be remarkable If a fleet should
not do so this year. He hoped the usual
civilities would be observed. The fleet
would go entirely without reference to
liuaalan Internal affaire. It would be im
possible to mske a change now without
giving rise to the suspicion that Great
Britain waa taking sldea The visit would
be in a friendly spirit, to pay compliments
to Emperor Nicholas and the Russian na

The accident at Luke Manawa the night
of the Fourth proves more riisastroua than
at first upH-rd. Instead of only one be
ing dead, as at first given out. five mors
bodies hae been recovered from the water
and at least one more peraon is missing
who Is supposed to have been at the re
sort on that evening, and the presumption
is that his body Is still In the lake. Tes
terdsy morning when Inquiries began, to
be made for people wno had hot returned -to
their home, the night before work wsa
commenced diving in the water near tha
acene of the accident In the effort to lo
cate other bodies. In this and other ways
five more were brought to the surface.
After this Jugs of lime were sunk In the
water and exploded from the action 'of
the water In the hopes of the concussion
raising to the surface any bodies which
might still be In the lake. Thla was pro.
ductlve of no results, and from the fact
that only one more person Is reported miss
ing the death list Is thought to be not In
excess of seven and possibly not mdre than,
six, which Is the number of bodies actually
In addition to this there are a large num
ber of Injured, running from slight con
tusions to a broken kneecap. The only
one which la considered In any way dan.
gerous Is that of Miss Jessie Newhy, who
had an arm lacerated by a rusty nail, and
this may result seriously, though she is
receiving the best of medlcsl attention st
the Wise MemorlaJ hospital, snd It la
thought the wound will heal readily. A
number of others who received no visible
Injuries are confined to their beds as a
result of the chill and nervous shock.
Home Pltlfnl Scenes.
Friends snd relatives of those who wera
missing Wednesday night were at the Iska
watching the work of those seeking to
recover the bodies. The suspense was
heartbreaking and as each body wsa
brought to the surface there waa a rush,
each one thinking perhaps it waa that of
their loved one. The grief of those who
found their fears realized was almost
matched by those who. certain of their be
reavement, were forced to wait yet awhile
for the appearance from beneath the waters
of the lake of the Inanimate bodies of those
who were dear.
The pitiable scene, at the lake when tha
bodies of the victims were Identified by
their relstlves was repeated when the
bodies were brought to the rooms of tha
Cutler undertaking establishment on Pearl
street. An Immense crowd lined the street
as the temporary rsskets containing the
bodies were removed from the motor which
brought them from the lake. Two police
officers were necessary to prevent the crowd
from forcing Its way Into th building. The
entire afternoon and a part of the evening
a crowd remained In the vicinity of the
undertaking rooms, anxious to secure a
look at the victims of the catastrophe, but
this was denied except to friends and rela
tives of the dead.
The first Identification of Elmer Scott
Huff, the only man of the six victims, was
brought about by some visiting cards which
were found on his person.
The bodies of Lena Rosenblum, Mary
Slieehan. Mary Ioney and Bessie Hyland
were taken later in the day to Omaha.
The body of Mr. Huff will be taken to
"Three Faaerale Today.
The funeral of Miss Mary West, th
Council Bluffs young woman who was one
of the victims, will be held this afternoon
at I o'clock from the residence of bar par
ents. Mr. and Mrs. Charles West, Thirty,
fifth street and Avenue F. Tbe West
family until a month ago resided In Omaha
at Sll Ieavenworth street, where they hail
made their home for twenty-seven yeara.
The funeral of Mlas Ijvinny win be held
