The fear at St. Petersburg appears that England will gain a permament footing in Egypt. The Moscow Gazette points out that since the possession by the Russians of cotton plantations in Egypt, the former stands next to England as regards the export trade with Egypt. It would be most detrimental, the Moscow Gazette declares, if the land of the Pharaohs should come under an English protectorate. The Suez Canal is England's route to India, and Russia's route to China, Japan, and the Russian ports in the Pacific. The Golos considers that the sooner an English occupation is effected the better. The other Powers will then know what tt ey have to deal with, and be able to take the necessary measures to ensure their respective interests. The Golos remarks that England will probably have to face the more or less direct opposition of the other Powers, besides France.
