PRIESTS PARTICIPATE.

LONDON, April 14. The Cairo correspondent of the "Sunday Express" states that Coptic priests participated ■in the frenzied demonstrations, proving that the disturbance is .national, not religious. All .religious, differences have been .forgotten. There are many processions daily, the natives shrieking "Long live liberty!" "Longlive Egypt!"

Other reports from Cairo emphasise the seriousness of the rioting, in which 58 people were killed. The excesses of the mobs necessitated the military firing. The outbreaks are sometimes antiBritish, but mostly against tne Armenians and Greeks.

CAIRO, April 13. ■'• General- Allenby is handling the situation with such tact that a recrudescence of serious trouble is unlikely. The murder of five British soldiers on Thursday greatly affected the troops, but they continue to show admirable restraint. The economic situation in the provinces is acute, but the districts,, generally are calm.
