JoiIANNEsnUIKI,
April 7th, 1895.
Sit:, ���Having promised several of
my friends before leaving East Kootenay to give them my ideas of South
Africa, I venture to do this through
tho medium of your valuable
paper, and to do this I must
compare B.C. uud S.A. Tho Capo
��� Colony itself, especially the southern
portion ol it, somewhat resembles
Vancouver Island for climate, but
being very much warmer towards tho
North, witli groat barren stretches,
though when irrigation can bo used
the soil is productive nnd most kinds
of fruit do very well. The principal
industries aro vine ami wool growing,
and much of the mechanical and all
tho rougher labor is tlono by Kaffirs
and Mttlattoes called Capo Boys, in
fact there seems to be no branch of
work open to white men unless they
lower themselves to the level and
wages of the coloured races. Tbo cab
drivers are Malays and in fact all
drivers or teamsters are colored with
very few exceptions, even the waiters
are eoolies, and I have seen Mulnttoes
as Mechanical Engineers; the same
applies to the country as to tho towns,
so that I consider Cape Colony is not
n place for white emigration, and the
same applies to the smaller branches
of tiade, shop keeping, etc. The Jews
and Arabs control what is known as
the native trade of tho towns, and
John Chinaman sells " belly cheap."
Regarding land, it is very hard to get
possession of any whicli is of value at
present, as the old grants are large; a
farm means from 5000 to 20.000 acres,
and tho owners being independent do
not care to part with any of it, whereas, tbov simply make a comfortable
living from it themselves, and improve
it very slowly, so much for Cape
Colony.
Natal, though of much the smallest
area, seems to havo more genuine enterprise and go ahead, considering its
resources, (not having tho diamond
mines of Kimberly, which I ommitted
to mention when speaking of Cape
Colony,) nor yet tlio gold fields of tho
Transvaal, than any other stalo in
.South Africa; a good funning and
fruit growing country. Tho furms
aro smaller as a rule and land can be
purchased from the Government ou
reasonable terms. Tho sugar ton aud
coffee grown and manufactured there,
bid fuir to compete with those of any
other country, and Durban with its
harbour, town and suburbs, notably
the Berea, with ils semitropicnl trees
and plants, impressed me very favorably. I might add that the Natal
(Government) railroads aro said to bo
built uud  conducted   better than any
olhor lines in S.A. Mnrltzburg is also
a pretty and prosperous town and from
what I have soon of Natal, I should
feel confident ill recommending it an a
good place for settlers with money. I
think at present there is uo other part
of South Africa to equal Nittul; for
those who wish to make a home as it
has every advantage of soil and climate, with a good government.
Tbo Transviii.l, where at present tho
greatest interest is centred, on account
of its gold fields, is a truly wonderful
country ; but as regards the labour
question, while emigration or tbo bind
question, the same applies hero as in
Capo Colony, with tho exception that
thu Government is Dutch or Boor and
to Americans or people of any enlightened country, who havo usually had
something to say in governing themselves, It is galling to be ruled by tho
uneducated minority.; also the taxation is invariably in favour of tho
Boer, and hard on the Uitlandor, and
the milling laws have very littlo semblance to those of the United States or
Canada. For instance, tho old Boer
owning a farm of say 10,000 acres,
also owns the minerals both base and
precious, water also, and the fact of
liorsos or cuttle of yours straying on
open or uiileiiced iraii-ie or vledt, provided somo Dutchman considers that
his farm, is breaking the law. Thpy
are au ignorant, dirty, thriftless, and
very religious race, with a bitter prejudice against the English, which
melius all who speak English, aud
thoir word is not to be relied on. Their
management of Government affairs is
of'en very ludicrous. In Johannesburg for instance, where tho English
speaking people are five to one as compared to the Dutch, the policemen are
all recruited from the burghers of tho
state, very few of them can speak
English, with what results the reader
can best imagine. Tho gold mining
here is something truly wonderful nnd
vory low grade ores nre made to pay
dividends, which is chiefly owing to
iho Cyanide process. How long the
fields will last is of conrso another
matter. jYu attempt to describe Johannesburg with its batteries, mills
and cosmopolitan pleasure loving
population would I fear tresspass too
much on your valuable spneo. Though
us I nm writing this letter with nn
object, I might say that in spite of all
that is written on the snbject, too
many white men come here who have
to depend on labour or their bare education to got, ou in the world, nnd consequently overstock the market, and to
engage in business it, takes about the
same amount of pounds here as it does
dollars at home to start with. On the
wholo the Transvaal is a great undeveloped country and likely to remain
so for the most part as the land is
owned by people of the dog in the
manger type, and to try and purchase
n piece of bind lho owner immediately
thinks yon have discovered a gold
mine on it, and refuses to sell. Now
I shall say it few words about charter
land. To reach there the best and
cheapest way is by coach from Pretoria, which may be done during favourable weather iu six days (tho distance is about 000 miles). During tho
ruins the time is indefinite, often ten
or twelve days, many people make their
first journey with loaded ox wagons,
and the time it takes to make the
journey varies from two to six months
and by tbo timo tho journey is over
people are usually sick of the country
and lifo in general. The first point of
any interest is 200 miles north of
Pretoria���Peitcrburg���a small town of
about "100 whites, with tho inevitable
native contingent. Tho next point of
interest is the Lympopo, a big river,
usually crossed by a forry boat or
pout (which I have just built by
contract,) and noted for being a most
deadly place for fever, as 'tho altitudo
is extremely low there. (I have just
spent six weeks tliere nnd the heat is
awful.) The next point of interest is
Tuii on the Sasho river, which when
in flood is a grand sight, but is usually |
a rivor of sand, from one-half to three-
quarter? of a milo in width, and a good
supply of fresh water running underneath which is obtained by digging.
The appearance of the country from
Petersburg'to Amanze Enyamo about
10 miles from Buluwayo, is anything
but inviting, long stretches of sand,
(mimosa, or) thorn trees, dust sand,
more thorn trees, etc., etc. Sometimes
UO miles without water and very
brackish and bad when you set it.
At Amanzo Enyamo tliere are somo old
workings and n number of prospectors
are at work sinking shafts, etc. From
there to Buluwayo tbo country looks
better, tho streams of running water
aro often within two or three miles of
ouch other _nd tbo altitudo is very
much greater. Buluwayo is a nice
littlo town of about 1000 white inhabitants, with many substantial brick
buildings, decent hotels and stores,
but what the future of the placo and in
fact the whole of charter land will Le,
is simply hinged ou how the gold
prospects turn out and there is not up
to the present, one ledge that has been
proved, so far everyone is groping in
the durk pretty much. As a farming
country it can never be a great success
as irrigation will always bo a difficult
problem, the creek beds are usually so
very much lower than the surrounding
lands. Fruit growing properly taken
in hand should be successful, but it
moans time and capital. As a horse
country it is a complete failure owing
to the deadly sickness, and cattle are
subject to very many diseases, notably
lung sick and red water. Cattle
ranching is out of the question, to add
to all this very few men enter the
country without contracting the fever,
and may attack them any time even
after leaving tho country. And there
more than in any otlier part of-* S.A.
tho young tenderfoot Englishman can
be seen in all tho glory of war paint
that tlio country can stand. Sleeves
usually rolled up to the shoulder, gorgeous puggarn on lint, immaculate
flannels and snsh, or else, belt with all
manner of leather pouches, knives and
other contrivances evidently indispen-
siblo to the wearer, (a lit Budge���note
in Golden,) nnd on a roasting hot day
tbey may bo sometimes sen with
heavy cord riding breeches and top
boots, strutting round the licst hotels
and can usunlly bo heard talking of
largo amounts of money and titled
lieople nt home. What becomes of
them ?���very much the samo thing as
in the North West Territories, they
join thc Mounted Police of some laud
or other,as there are several corps of
them, and speaking from personal experience any of iheui inferior to the
N.W.M.P., which is saying much.
To sum up : the railroud is 000 miles
away, everything must como by ox
wagon, the railroads themselves are of
an inferior narrow gaugo kind, the
country is not healthy, cattle farming
aud ranching are better left alone, and
uo person hus any business coining to
South Africa without u sum of money
which at homo would bo quite sufficient to get along with, add to this
that to be successful in most things
here it is necessary to speak Dutch and
Kaffir, uud my advice to my friends iu
B.C., is, remain where you are, as this
country is not an improvement on
North America in general.
Sincerely yours,
C. J. Brownrigii.

tliut it did. fur she was so agreeably different from ull of her sistjrs, except
Aunt June. Tbey were au average lut
and very like ihe average uf mankind, or
womankind. They wero ambitious and
thrifty uud married woll ouo after another; grow mure thrifty and money
making uud money saving, and all were
comfortably settled iu cumfurtablo
homes, which they very gimrerly enjoyed, which was as much as their narrow,
selfish natures would permit them to do.
All married good, substantial farmers,
possessed of a fuir amount of intelligence, but whose highest ambition was
to make money.
But poor Aunt Jane! Poor Jennie
was the one black sheep of this generous fold. "Sho lacked nurd horse sense,"
ber sisters said. (All said su but Aunt
Calista.) She had married bndly, just
us might have boon expected, thoy nil
agreed. (With but one dissenting voice,
Aunt Culistn's.) Sho bad taken her
chickens to a poor market and was now
enjoying the discomfort uf a bad bargain. All wero unanimous in this conclusion, with Aunt Cnlistti counted out
She hud iu it iniiiiiior defied Providence,
bad Jni.e, when she recklessly married
Jim Ilaiily, with his linn Isomo face, his
warm, true heart nud his kit of cai'i"inter tools whicli he bad just learned to
use. Juno might have married old man
Bvowstor, with his eighty acres of land
an ii nearly years enough on his stubborn
old head to match every ouo nl'them:
his bunk, barn, and bis windmill and
club foot, aud a temper not conspicuous,
for its mildness. But she wantonly declined this rise in life, brilliant and ornate as it was, married Jim il.-inly and
moved awny to the city, with not much
to begin life with except their love and
courage and Jim's tool chest.   But they
had not prospered as tne worm recsons
prospering. There was never a day
when their courage failed or their love,
let go. but many a time came when Jim
and Jennie sut hand in hand wondering
what misfortune would befall them
next Children were born to tbem sud
each last one was tbe most welcome,
each bringing them added love and care.
But sickness came and swept the cit*-*
neither rich nor poor were spared. It
was a cruel monster, that red-breathed
fever, but it showed no favor, and in
Jim's and Jennie's home in the pleasant
suburb of the city, it claimed all. Not
one was left The sad old story of the
vacant chairs and the empty hands and
desolate hearts wss repeated in sll its
sorrowful details. The little half-worn
clothes on ths nails behind the door, snd
the little worn shoes in the corner, told
their silent and worldless story to their.
bereaved and stricken hearts.
And when sickness and trouble had
onco found its way into their home, it
kept comin-- nntl coming as if it liked
the pathway thst led up to the nest
little cottage.   Now it wss Jennie now
it wis Jim, snd with this came loss snd
distress, and povorty stood gaunt snd
grinning just outside the door with almost courage to.raiso the latch. The
little home in which their children were
born bud long since ceased to be theirs,
and yet thoy held to it as something too
sacred for strangers to pass over its
threshold.
But never in their direst need bad
there been a complaint or had they asked for aid or betrayed their want, and it
was only by chance that the sisters discovered their condition, snd they each
���aid as v. ith one voice (all except Aunt
Calista): "June has made her bed snd
now she must sleep in it," and tbey
closed their hearts as they hod ever
closed their doors and thanked God they
were not as she, and had been wise and
wary in their day and generation. But
rent day had never come to Jim and
Jennie for many a year without a letter
from Aunt Culista, and so they lived on
iu their little cottage, poor but unmolested. Aunt Calista was their anchor and
hope, the ouo glimmer of sunshine in
their cloudy, rainy sky, and when her
letters ciiuie there was no thought of
doing otherwise than ns she wished.
There was not much to "get ready" for
the journey. A new a pair of shoes for
Jennie and a hat for Jim; the taking
down of the children's photographs and
putting them tearfully away in the
bureau drawer, a bit of tidying up, a last
lingering loutc at the rather dismal home,
and lucking of tlie front door, a brief
walk to thu depot und the journey was
almost accomplished and twenty-four
'Hours later they were heated iu Aunt
Culista .Tones' pleasant parlor, receiving
lur hist Instructions before she set out
upon her trip, lur which somehow she
seemed lo havo no very definite plans,
which was Badly unlike her usual bustling business habits. But whatever her
plans were���if pluns she bad, they were
carefully guarded as she assumed tantalizing ignorance of what her futuro
movements might be.
"It's a wild gojse chase I'm going on,"
sue remarked to Jennie us she tied up
her still rustling bonnet strings under
ber chin. "I'm going in seurcb of adventure, a female Don Quixote if yoa
please, and shall probably come home
with tbe rheumatism and s temper like
a saw. But take care of things and allow this lonely old lady to have her
whirl aud see a bit of life from a different point of view than tbe back kitchen
windows six days iu the week and the
front porch on tho seventh." And Aunt
Calista was driven to Jones' station by
the hired man, wbo remarked on his return, "I swan, what 11 happening nextf
The next thing that did happen that
was greatly out of the usual was the
arrival of a letter from Aunt Calista���
tbe first that had come in six weeks of
her absence. It wss brief and not in
the least satisfactory, and Jim and Jennie declared that Aunt Calista was
growing unwholesomely mysterious. It
was dato df rom the city in which Jim and
Jennie lived, and simply said that she
had grown weary of meandering around
in an aimless, miscellaneous way, snd
had finally fetched up at their home,
where she proposed to stsy s spell if they
would como buck snd entertuin ber.
She wanted to rest np from her recuperating snd would they pack np and
return immediately. The hired man
could keep house alone for s week. It
lacked an hour till the western bound
train arrived, bnt when it came, Mr.
and Mrs. .Tames Hanly were among the
handful of passengers who "moved on"
like little Joe.
Jim had grown stoat snd well with
his six weeks of country life, free from
care, and Jennie's cheeks were plump
and rosier than they had been for many
s year. Aunt Calista was st the crowded railway station to meet tbem, and,
snatching their luggage from them,
hurried thorn into a stylish cab and
threw ia tbe valise and followed after
it It was the first time in all their
lives they had had the luxury o^such a ride, with springy velvet cuslnons, a
driver with brass buttons and an uncomfortable bat, and they sat back
among the luxury vaguely wondering
what would happen next. They were
driven directly to their home nnd landed
in front of it, us a bright lamp on a new
post by a new gate showed. A new
fence flanked the gate on either side and
a neut gravel walk bordered with flowers
led up tu the house.
The houso I What a change. The old
one transformed into a perfect picture
of a cottage���a vcrituble, tangible dream
of modern, modest architecture. Aunt
Calista opened the door nntl touched a
mysterious button und tbe house was a
flood of light, aud if it wns a picture outside it was a poem within. Such *.rettv
carpet, such pretty curtains, such pretty
walls aud such pretty pictures upon
them, aud such pretty furniture I
It all seemed liko u dream tu Jim and
Jennie, and as Aunt Calista pulled asido
the curtain to lay her c-ont and bonnet
on tbe bod sho handed them a bit of
paper, which, standing arm in arm
under the uretty chandelier, they read.
And this is what they read, with foolish
tears dimming the page:
Dear Jennie and Jim : Please accept
the home yuu worked so hard for and
loved sn well, but lost, from me, your
eccentric but loving uld sister. Calista.
