POPULATION OF THE SOUDAN.…

POPULATION OF THE SOUDAN. Sir Beg. Wingate has justly described as amazing the figures which he has ob- tained by an approximate census of the population of the Soudan. It is estimated that the population before the period of Dervish rule was eight and a half millions, but that, more than six and a half millions having died of disease or perished in exter- nal or internal war, the total remaining population is less than two millions. There is, unhappily, no room for doubting the comparative accuracy of this terrible record, and the only consolation is to be found in the reflection that under British rule such a mortality can never occur again. The causes of epidemic disease are being grad- ually removed the people are being helped to deal with such epidemics as may arise, and the wholesale destruction of life, which was one of the factors in Dervish misrule, has been stopped. International jealousies have hitherto prevented Continental nations recognising the services which Britain is rendering to the cause ofahuuaanity, but our French neighbours can now see things in a light very different from that which for- merly presented itself to their vision, and it is gratifying to know that they have in a practical way admitted the beneficence of British administration in Egypt and the Soudan by undertaking not to hamper it in future.
