Tbe capture of Khartoum by Gen
eral Kitchener is a victory in the in
terest of civilization. "When England
entered Egypt to abolish the slave
trade the empire of the Khedive in
cluded all of the Soudan or upper
Nile country as far south as Isniailia
or Gondokoro. Dongola, Berber,
Kordofan, the Equatorial Provinces,
and Darfur were all controlled from
Cairo. The government was not of
the best, but it was organized by
men like Baker, Gordon and Slatin
and was better than barbarism. The
old Egyptian conqueror of the Sou
dan had declared, "The nation that
possesses the Nile must control the
sources of the Nile," and in furlher
ing this principle the whole region
had been opened to trade, and there
were steamers on the Nile above
After the Mahdi rebellion in 1883
General Gordon was sent to Khar
toom, not to reassert Egyptian au
thority, but to proclaim the Mahdi
Sultan of Kordofan and non inter
ference with the slave trade. This
surrender of all ihat had been gained
in tbe interest of civilization broke
the spirit of the progressive tribes
and encouraged the savage ones.
Gordon was besieged in Khartoum
and the English government, lashed
by popular clamor, sent rn army to
After one cf the most "remarkable
campaigns ever made by a British
armj-, General Wolseley's command
arriyed in the vicinity of Khartoom
a few days after Gordon hid been
murdered and the city surrendered
to the rebels. Then, despite the
victories of Stewart, "Wilson, Buller,
Wood, Graham and Beresford, that
splendid fightiDg army marched down
the Nile, and abandoned the whole
of the Soudan. This was in 188;,
and in five years the whole region
had lapsed into barbarism. The de
terioration was more rapid than the
progress had been. Trade routes
were abandoned, steamers, irrigating
woiks, and cities destroyed, and the
more progressive tribes subdued or
massacred. In ten yeais the wild
tiibes were in complete control.
Then Slatin Pasha and General
Kitchener began to preach a new
crusade against the cowardly policy
that had surrendered a great empire
to barbarism. The hordes of the
Mahdi had pressed the Anglo-Eg3"pt-ian
troops as far noith as Wady
Haifa and bad cut off Suakim, on the
Red sea, from the Nile. It was
claimed that England owed it to
Egypt and civilization to reclaim the
country. Over a year ago the cam
paign was Inaugurated, and on Satur
day it culminated in the defeat of
the Mahdi's army and the capture of
The Soudan might have been saved
in 1881 had not Gordon been in
structed to weaken his own cause by
proclaiming a policy of surrender.
It might have been saved in 1886
had not General Wolseley been or
dered to retreat. Starting in to ac
com pi it-h a great work for humanity
in tbe abolition of the slave trade,
England ended by surrendering all
of the upper Nile country, not only
to the slave trade, but to barbarism.
She has at great sacrifice reclaimed
what she lost through hesitation and
timidity. ' She has learned that a
great nation's obligations to civiliza
tion cannot be evaded or trifled with.
Americans will rejoice over the great
victory of the English in Soudan,
hoping that their own government
will net make a mistake in tbe Philip
pines like that made by the British
government in Egypt. Inter Ocean.
