H " CELEBRATED If A
DE LESSEPS ON THK SOrDAX.
A Land Which the French Ensuieer Say !
Caasnt fc Cosanered.
Paris, March 20. 3f. De Lesseps
in Jthe; course of an interview re-j
lated by the Matin, says, '! have re
peatedly warned the English that to
send au expedition to the Soudan was
to Bend suldiers to certain death. I
cannot repeat the conversations that
x nave neia witn very mgn personages
on this subject. The Soudan cannot
be conquered, indeed, any more than
Egypt; and present events are but a
direct and necessary consequence of
tho bombardment of Alexandria and
the occupation of Egypt. I am very
glad that I, to the best of my humble
ability, induced the French govern
ment not to join England. I then
said to the ministers: 'I will under
take to defend the canaL' "
After stating as a reason why the
Egyptians, though very pacific, can
never be subjugated, that a fellah
woman never has a child by a Euro
pean, M. de Lesseps said:
"As for ancient Nubia, or Ethiopia,
it in a country in which, as if in a sen,
whole armies of conquerors have been
engulfed. Cambyses Iqf 1 100,000 men
on the deserts, and he was only too
glad to return home with a handful
of followers. The son of 3fehemet
Ali was burnt iu his camp with his
array. To attempt to conquer the
Soudan by force is a dream. It is
quite possible to give laws to and to
govern these intelligent, heroically
'In order to reach Khartoum, what
ever the route taken, ono must cross
deserts in which there is absolutely no
water. An army, whether going or
returning, will always be au easy prey
to the war-like populations of Nubia.
These can turn on the enemy as many
as 100,000 fighting men, for whom
death is only a secondary considera
tion, and who would be scoffed at by
tho women if they returned to their
villages without having avenged the
deaths of their companions. The
longer the struggle is continued
against the Soudan tho more difficult
will be the effecting of a settlement.
Two years ago it would have been easy
to negotiate; now it is difficult, the
animosity of these fanatical soldiers
having been aroused."
M. de Lesseps then described his
visit to Khartoum in 1857 with Said
Pasha, who had an escort of sixty
seven Albanians thirty-seven of
whom died in the desert. In the
Korosko desert the springs were so
few that in a ten day's march the
caravan of M. de -Lesseps had to part
company with Said Pasha's, and re
joined it only every third or fourth
day. At Berber, Said, struck by the
way in which the country had been
ravaged by his brother's expedition
and the one sent to avenge him, was
for turning back; but M. de Lesseps
urged him to go on. At Shendy
100,000 men, delegates from every
village, showed themselves enthusi
astically grateful when the viceroy
liberated the slaves, and abolished
or reduced the taxes, baid gave them
leave to fling the guns of an old fort
into the Nile, whispering to M. de
Lesseps that they were quite unser
viceable, and ordered 100 lashes to
be given to a man who had refused
to liberate a female slave. After ex
tolling the Assinian tribe, and de
scribing haid'a short fit of frenzy at
Khartoum, where he became enraged
at owing his warm reception to the
counsels of a r renchman, AL de Les
""When Gordon set out for the Sou
dan ho took with him the decrees of
Said Pasha. It was with the great
est difficulty that they could be
found at Cairo. At length, in a book
seller's shop, a book was obtained in
which I had published them iu
French. They were translated into
Arabic, and Uordon went to Khar
toum to apply them. Unfortunately,
he is not a Mohammedan and this be
ing the case, it was difficult for him
to-struggle against the influence of
the Mahdi. The Mahdi, moreover,
must be an Arab, and not a Soudan
ese; and he is, I am convinced, in
communication with Arabi, and all
the defenders of Egyptian independ
ence. The great mistake was to send
soldiers to the Soudan and not to ne
gotiate with these populations."
"Gordon is a man of great ability.
lie would have found his way out of
his difficulties more readily by per
suasion than by force. It will sur
prise me much to find that he is dead;
it would surprise mo less should he
turn Mussulman and acquire great
influence over the Mahdi. As regards
a new expedition to avenge iordon,
itvonld be dangerous, if not impossi
ble. ve have now reached the bad
season .andolseley has announced
mat no is going to canton uis troops.
This is the best thing that can be
Iiargeit Orpaa 1b the World.
The largest organ ever constructed
was recently finished at Lndwigsburg.
It is for the Cathedral church at
Riga. It contains 7600 pipes and 124
stops, a. ionr-norse engine supplies
it with wind. The largest organ in
the body is the liver, which in a man
of average size weighs about seven
pounds. When this organ gets out
of order there is trouble. "When
Brown's Iron Bitters is taken the
trouble subsides. Mr. W. H. Need
bam. of uentreville Iowa, says,
"Brown's Iron-Bitters has relived me
of severe kidney and liver disecsd
and of great .weakness." Buy it at
any drug: store.
I3IPOKTANT IiAXD DECISION.
The following is a brief statement
of an important land ra pre
viously referred t , together with
an abstract of the deci'Io-i of
the supreme court upon it. .
A decision was nteo renderp 1 b
the court to-day in the cage of the
Kansas Pacific Railway company,
plaintiff in error, against Lewis Uun
mever. in error to the snnreme eonrt
of Kansas. The sum involved iu the
suit is only S300.000, but it raises
questions which are said to be ot im
portance as covering controverted
titles to many thousand acres of val-,
uable laud. The controversy relates.
to the title to a small piece of land
embraced within the limits of thei
grant to the Union Pacific railroad
company and itsbrauch'es. One Mill
er made a homestead entrv on this laud '
Julv 25, I860, and it is admitted that
mis entry was vnnu it me lauii was,
public land subject to such entry. The
grant to the railroad com-,
pany conveyed to it all certain
alternate sections of land (in-!

not sold, reserved, or other
wise disposed ot by the United States,
and to which a pre-emption or home
stead claim may not have attached at
the time the line of said roau is defi
nitely fixed." The question raised by J
the language of the grant between
Miller and company is whether tho
homestead claim of the former at
tached at the time the line of railroad
was definitely fixed. The court helds:
First, that under this grant, as under
many other grants containing the
same word or words to the same pur
port, the act which fixes tho time of
definito location in the act of filing a !
map or plot ot this line in the office
of tho commissioner of the general
land office; second, that the language
iu the excepting clause of the grant
is not modified or repealed by sec. 4
of the amendatory act of 1854; third.
that the designation of tho general
route of the road and the filing
of the map thereof in the general
land office lnly, 11. 1HW, did not
withdraw the laiid from homestead
entry under the statutes by virtue of
which the rompauy claims it: fourth,
that the line of the detinue location
of the company's road was first filed
with the commissioner ot the general
laud" office Sept. 21, 1SGG; fifth, that
the homestead claim of Miller hail
attached prior to that time; and sixth,
that when Miller subsequently aban
doned his entry the land did not re
vert to the railroad company as if
originally granted to it, but remained
part "of the public domain. The jnug

"Mrs. Thompson, that is a fine
child, a splendid baby indeed, bnt it's
nothing to the one our Sallie had
three months ago. Law me, our
Sal's baby weighed no les3 than four
teen pounds; the editors, published
it in all the papers free. Au eight
pound or a ten pound baby nowadays
is nowhar. Our Sal looks sich a
scrawny little thing, too; it was some

it's all wrong and out of place to pub
lish the weight of a new born babe.
It might be all very well to care
about the weight of a pig, to know
how much pork ye might expect, as
it is only valued for its weight; but
not so in a hnmau being. It's a hor
