VERY SUCCESSFUL
London, Nov, 15.—Field Marshall Earl Koberts died last night
in France from pneumonia.
A telegram from Field Marshall
Sir John Frenoh apprised Lord
Kitchener, Secretary of State for
War, of the death of England's
greatest soldier.    The telegram
read: "I deeply regret to tell you
that Lord Roberts died at eight
o'clock this (Saturday)evening."
Field Marshal Lord Frederick
Sleigh Roberts was the son of the
late General Sir Abraham Roberts
G.C.B.,  and   Nora   Henrietta,
daughter of Major A. Bunbury,
of Kilfeacle, County Tipperary,
He was born at Cawnpore, India,
September 30, 1832, and was educated at Eaton, Sandurst and
Addiscombe.    He received his
first commission as second lieutenant in the Bengal Artillery in
1851, and after passing through
various grades, was promoted to
Lieutenant-General in 1883.   He
served with distinction throughout the Indian Mutiny campaign,
receivings the Victoria Cross for
personal bravery in the field in
18S8. Throughout the Abyssinian
campaign of 1868, Lord Roberts
held the position of Assistant
Quartermaster-General: he super
intended the re-embarkation of
the whole army, and was selected
by Sir Robert Napier as the bearer of his final dispatches.
At the beginning of the Afghan
campaign he was appointed commander of the Kuram field force,
and subsequently he had the chief
command of the army in Afghan
istan, where he achieved most
brilliant triumphs. After the
massacre of the British embassy
Sir Frederick Roberts reoccnpied
Kabul at the close of 1879. Towards the end of July, 1880, a
terrible defeat was inflicted by
the troops of Ayoob Khan, at

Hon. Wm. Templeman
Passes Away Suddenly
After less than two days' serious illness Hon. Wm. Templeman,
one of the most respected and
prominent of Victoria's citizens,
passed away at his fesidenee in
Victoria on Sunday, November
15th. On thc Friday preceding
he bad visited his ollice,
chatted cheerfully with friends,
and, though complaining of a
slight indisposition, expected that
a little rest would remedy it.
Saturday    morning,    however.
found him worse,  and  later he
•
became delirious. On Sunday ho
apsed into unconsciousness, and
at 3,20 p.m. succumbed.
Having been closely identified
with the municipal and political
activities of the community for
thirty years, during which period
he directed the policy of the Victoria Times, of which journal he
was the proprietor, he had a wide
circle of acquaintances. To his
friends, and, in fact, to all among
whom his name was recognized
as a virile force in the affairs of
Western Ca'iada, the news of his
death will come as a distinct
shock. While he appeared to
bear up under the blow sustained
only four months ago by the
demise of Mrs, Templeman with
fortitude, those among whom he
moved daily realized that his
strength had been seriously
shaken. His constitution was
tried further only a short time ago
by an operation, but his demeanor
and cheerfulness on Friday led to
.the belief that complete recovery
might be confidently expected.
Hon. Mr. Templeman was seventy years of age, having been
born at Pakenham, Lanark
County, Ontario, on September
28, 1844. He was the son of William and Helen (Taylor) Templeman, natives of Scotland. His
early education was received in
the schools of that district, and,
when seventeen years old, he
determined to obtain a knowledge
of the printing business. The
Herald, Carleton Place, was the
first newspaper to which he was
attached. There he served a four
years' apprenticeship, and, having been admitted to the craft,
he proceeded to see something of
the,world and to obtain a fuller
grasp of his business. Two years
were spent in this way, and returning to his native place, he
established the Almonte Gazette.
It supported the policies of the
Liberal party, and now, a- it ap-
pioaches the fiftieth anniversary
of its inception, is considered one
of the leading papers of that part
of Canada.
Mr. Templeman's connection
with Victoria began in 188-1. The
Times had been founded just six
months prior to his coming, viz..
June 9, 1881, and Mr. J. C. Mc-
Lagan, who later established the
Vancouver World, was its proprietor, and when Mr. McLagan
went to the Terminal City it was
quite natural that Mr. Templeman should find himself in the
commanding place with respect
to the newspaper of which he
soon acquired full control. From
that date until the present the
Times, under Mr. Templeman's
direction, has unswervingly upheld the policies of the Liberal
party.

British Empire .Mourns Loss.
[Continued from first page*]
trackless region between Kabul
and Kandahar. Immediately he
grappjed with Ayoob Khan, indicting on that pretender a crush
ing defeat. On the return of
General Roberts to England he
was loaded with honors; he was
presented with the freedom of
the cily of London, received the
thanks of parliament and was
created a baronet.
After the defeat of General
Bullet* at Colenso on December
16, 1899,-Lord Roberts was appointed commander-in-chief in
S lUth Africa, with Lord Kitchen*
i cr as his chief of stall'.
Lord Roberts returned to England in 1901, leaving the task of
finally subduing the Boers in the
hands of Lord Kitchener. He
was appointed commander-in-
chief of the British army in succession to Lord Wolsoley, was
created Earl Roberts of Kandahar, Pretoria and Waterford.
London, Nov. 17. -Lord Kitchener, Lord Curzon and the Earl
of Cfewe, in the house of lords
today paid tributes to Lord Roberts. "His accomplishments as
a soldier and his character as a
man," said Lord Kitchener, "will
be an abiding memory, not only
in parliament, but in the whole
nation. His fame willjbe forever
associated with the memorable
march to Kandahar."
Premier Asquith, in moving a
resolution in the house of commons today regarding a monument for Lord Roberts, said the
field marshal's death had robbed
England of its eldest and most
illustrious soldier, a man who had
fought his way upward step by
step, unaided by any influence
except his own skill.
Andrew Bonar Law, leader of
the opposition in the house, seconded the resolution for the erection of the monument and the
measure passed unanimously.
Tlie official press bureau gives
a touching account of the funeral
services for Lord Roberts at the
headquarters of the British army
in France.
"The route of the cortege from
the house where he died to the
Mairie where the funeral service
was held was lined by British and
French troops. The coffin was
borne on a gun carriage. It was
an impressive ceremony. The
guard of honour were Indian and
British troops. General officers
acted as pall-bearers. Those following the casket, including representatives of the family of
Lord Roberts, and of King Albert
and of President Poincare, the
Prince of Wales, Prince Arthur*
of Connttught, and Gen. French.
"The simple funeral service
was conducted by Chaplain Anderson, of the British forces. At
the close of the service the British bugles rang out with "The
Last Post' As the coffin was
j removed to a motor ambulance
for conveyance to Boulogne,
French trumpeters .across the
'square blew a fanfare and the
guns of Lord Roberts' old regiment roared out a last farewell.

mass of dark clouds and an aero-
