EGYPTIAN FINANCE. THE FRENCH AND ENGLISH PRO- POSALS. [" CENTRAL NEWS TELEGRAM.] PARIS, MONDAY EVENING. The Temps this evening gives prominence to a summary of the English proposals for the settle- ment of the Egyptian financial question and of the counter proposals of the French Government' The principal points are as follow England shall guarantee a loan to the Egyptian Government of five millions sterling, at per cent. interest, in order to protect her guarantee. The entire revenues of the Daira and Domain lands shall be paid into the Bank of England, and be applied to the payment of the interest on the new loan, upon which they shalt be a first charge. The Domain loan shall be joined with the Privi- leged loan and the Daira. The Sinking Fund of the existing debt shall be suspended. The interest of the Unified and Daira Debts and the interest on the Suez Canal Shares held by the British Government shall each suffer a re- duction,of l per cent. The annual cost. of the Egyptian Administration shall be fixed at £ 4,948,000; the cost of the British army of occupation shall not exceed JE293,000 per annum. Finally, the Law of Liquidation shall be modified in certain particulars. According to* the Temps the chief points of the Counter proposals made by M. Ferry are a loan of £9,000,000; guaranteed by all the Powers, and* a tax upon coupons instead of reduction of interest. The Fretrch Government is also strongly opposed to the proposed separation of the Daira and Domain Loans, and the payment of their'revenues into the Bank of England. Manyof the'points in the French and-English schemes are practically ideuticaLafaet which seems to justify the belief freely expressed incertain circles here that ^un- derstanding between thw-two Governments is by no means improbable. Little-doubt is felt here as to the accuracy of the Temps version of the British j HAD FRENCHOAHAMEE. J
