Britain's plans for establishing a, constitutional form of government i in Egypt are sot forth in an of-; ficial statement made by Earl Cur-' British Minister of Foreign; Affairs, which has boon received here. Objects of the Miluer Mission which goes to Egypt to arrange the proposed now government are des- cribed in the statement. The British Foreign Secretary an-' uouucos that it is the intention of. the British government to establish! the largest measure of self-govern-1 mont for which Egypt is believed capable at this time. He states that.' the Milner Mission is not author- ited to impose a constitution on: Egypt, but rather to study tho situa- tion and confer with the native leaders. In part. E.u'l Ourzon's statement' follows: "It was in 1P14 after we had boon compelled to declare war upon Tur- key that the British protectorate over Egypt was declared. So far as ibis being intended or indeed re- garded at 'ho time as a high-handed act. aimed at the suppression of Egyptian liberties, it was decided upon by Mr. Asquith's government as n much milder and more generous- policy than that of annexation which at that time was stroncly advocated by some. Cyprus, which had long. been administered by the Colonial Office as part of the British empire. was annexed. But the opportunity of incorporating Egypt in the empire was deliberately, and I think, wisely rejected because it was intended, in a wide latitude of opportunity which the fomulae of a protectorate af- fords, to give free scope to the political aspirations am: the self- governing capacities of the Egyptian "I need hardly elaborate the rea- sons for which Gro.v. Britain is compelled to interest herself in the political fortunes of and is unable to give any encouragement to the claim of complete national in- dependence. Quite apart from the fact that Ecypt. if loft to stand alone, could neither protect her fron- tiers against external aggression nor guarantee a strong or impartial gov- ernment at home, her geographical position at the gate of Palestine, at the doorway of Africa and the high road to India, renders it im- possible that the British Empire with any regard to its own security and conditions should wash its hands, of the responsibility for Egypt. "Egyp' is of course, primarily an Egyptian interest, the good covern- ment and the prosperity and happi- ness of its peoplpe are the highest consideration. But it is also a Brit- ish interest of capital Importance and 1 suspect tha; there are few who would deny that it is also a world interest, and that the world Interest is best secure by leaving Egypt under the of a great civilized power. "But within these boundaries is a wide and ample field in which the Egyptians are invited to participate. and must as time passes on, partici- pate in an ever increasing degree in, the government of their country.' We recognize the legitimacy of these! aspirations. Wi- desiri- to provide for their satisfaction. The progress-1 ive development of self-governing iu-. Stltuiions In Egypt is an ideal In which they may share with us and we with them. It is not to bo thought of that a race like the Egyptians, possessing in its upper, ranks a high culture and historic memories, should be content with (i role of passive subordination in the administration of their country. "It will be the object of Lord Milner and his colleagues, in con- sultation with the Sultan and tm ministers and representative Egypt- ians of all classes, to devise tho detail sof a constitution by whim nil these parties shall be able' in their several spheres and in an in-, creasing degree co-operate In the. management of F.Kyptlan affairs. British assistance and British guid- ance will still be required. Nor will' any of those who have followed the history of "Egypt for the last forty years and seen tho astounding ad- vance that she has made under our auspices question the necessity of this supervision. "Lord Mllners mission IB not out to Egypt with a constitution In its pocket. It Intends to consul all parties before It even forms an opinion. It Is not authorized to Im- pose a constitution upon Egypt. What it has to do Is to undertake the preliminary work that Is neces- sary before the future form of gov- ernment determined."

Suggestions that immigration be suspended completely were opposed by the commissioner on the ground that it would have an "injurious effect upon our efforts to further American commerce and enterprise! in foreign countries." Continuance j of war-time passport vise regula- tions and assignment of immigration j bureau representatives at consu- I lar offices to aid In excluding un- I desirables was urged instead.

"It is very difficult to prophesy regarding the food situation of the future in view of the fact that the whole economic structure of the world has been so badly dislocated.
