BECAUSE

(By Associated Press)
Paris, June 5.- A statement con-
cerning the present disorders in
Egypt, explaining the situation from
the viewpoint of the agitators, has
been given to the Associated Press
by Mohammed Mohmund Pasha, a
member of an Egyptian delegation of
20 which is here to ask the peace con-
ference to recognize the independence
of Egypt. Mohammed Mohlmoud Pasha
was at one time governor of the Suez
Canal and later governor of the pro-
vince of Behiera. He with three other
leaders of his party were deported
recently to Malta but were sreleased
after a month and came on to Paris.
His statement follows:
"The political status of Egypt un-
derwent a great change, owing to the
war. International relations between
Egypt and other countries must be re-
arranged, and the British protectorate
which was proclaimed at the begin-
ping of the war and which has never
been accepted by the Egyptian people,
was a war measure and cannot stand
after the termination of the war.
"All these questions which emanat-s
ed from the war can be settled by the
peace conference only, and a proper
settlement necessitates the hearing of
Egypt's voice therein. For these rea-
sons the Egyptian delegation was em-
powered by means of mandates from
all classes of the Egyptian people to
come to Paris, plead the cause of their
country before the peace conference,
and request therefrom the recognition'
of the independence of' Egypt.
"But the delegation' was prevented
by the British authorities from leav-
ing for Europe, and the Egyptian min-
istry which was in complete solidar-
ity with the people, resigned early in
March last. No Egyptian was found
to form a ministry, and for this bank-
ruptcy of British administration in
Egypt, the delegation was held re-
sponsible.
"The chairman, Saad Zagloul Pasha,

former minister of education and later
of justice, and now vice-president of
the Egyptian legislative assembly; Is-
mail Sidkey Pasha, former minister of
religious endowment; Hamed El Basil
Pasha, one of the leading Bedouin
chiefs and a member of the legislative
assembly; and myself were arrested
on March 8 and deported to Malta
without any charge or inquiry.
"The Egyptian people almost to a
man demanded our immediate release
and the immediate departure of the
delegation for Europe. Their indigna-
tion reached a very high pitch when
they saw in this violation of individ-
ual liberty an attempt at depriving
Egypt from enjoying the liberal prin-
ciples of President Wilson, and they
also saw that all the enormous sac-
rifices which, in the language of Gen-
eral Allenby, were to a very large ex-
tent responsible for the decisive vic-
tory over the Turks were in vain.
"Representative Egyptians from
Alexandria to Assuan lodged a stern
protest against such a treatment.
Young men and the students made
peaceful demonstrations, but the Brit-
ish troops opened fire at them. Yet
the demonstration continued and the
fire of machineguns and rifles con-
tinued also. A very large number
were killed in Cairo and the, provin-
cial cities,
"This revolution is a national move-
ment against a foreign domination,
which is abhorred by the entire Egypt-
ian population. Mohammedans and the
Christians are in absolute accord. The
Egyptian movement is neither relig-
ious nor anti-foreign, nor instigated
by Germany or Turkey. It is a deep
rooted desire on the part of all the
inhabitants of the valley ofdthe Nile
for the attainment of the independ-
ence of their country."

ican polo team ever organiedz, and
widely known as a yachtman of the
old school is dead at his home here
after a long illness. He was 77 years
of age.

IF you were studying by an old smoky oil lamp and suddenly a
mnodern, sun-like MAZDA lamp were thrust into the room, the contrast
would be dazzling. That instant would unfold the result of thirty
years' development, research and manufacturing in electric lighting.

is

Almost

Gone

And this development commenced with
Edison's first lamp-hand-made, when
electricity was rare.
The General Electric Company was a
pioneer in foreseeing the possibilities of
Edison's invention. Electric generators
were developed. Extensive experiments
led to the design and construction of
apparatus which would obtain electric
current from far-away waterfalls and
deliver it to every city home.
With power lines well distributed over
the country, the use of electric lighting
extended. Street lighting developed from

the flickering arc to the great white way.
Electric signs and floodlights made our
cities brilliant at night, searehlights
turned night into day at sea, and miniav
ture lamps were produced for the
miner's headlight and automobile.
While the making of the electrical indus.
try, with its many, many interests, was
developing, the General Electric Com-
pany's laboratories continued to improve
theincandescent lamp, and manufacturing
and distributing facilities were provided,
so that anyone today can buy a lamp
which is three times as efficient as the
lamp of a few years agc.
