Bourgeois ttsclared that Great Britain ad installed herself in Egypt without laving- been invested -with a mandate to do so by the powers or by the sal tan of Turkey, and had therefore caused permanent uneasiness. The sultan's mandate had not been secured.althoueh Egypt was a dependency of the Ottoman empire, whose integrity the powers had agreed to respect. The action of the Russian and French delegates on the Egyptian debt commission in protesting- against the illegal appropriation of Egyptian funds" for the Soudan expedition, had established a reservation in regard to the Egyptian question. M. Bourgeois added that Russia and France were never more closely associated than at present. I The cabinet, he concluded, was continuing the negotiations concerning Egypt «"ith firmness, and was inspired with confidence in defending, with Europe, their common rights and interests. Upon the conclusion of M. Bourgeois' statement the chamber, by a vote of 300 to 213, adopted a vote of confidence in the government. The concensus of opinion in the lobbies is that part of M. Bourgeois' reply to the interpellations clearly indicated that he was trying to procure a conference of tue powers on the Egyptian question. ST.

England is encircling the world with her territory." , PARIS, April 5.—The senate, by 155 to 85 votes, refused the government a vote of confidence, and this was due to the inability of the government to add to the explanations on the Egyptian question. All the senators left the chamber. After the vote the senate immediately adjourned until April 31. A meeting of the ministers was called to discuss the situation.
