New York, Jan. 84.���Tho World
prints the following liable dispatch
from Belfast: '" It is known hero now
Uml Cecil Rhodes and the British
Chartered South African Company
have received permission to make war
111 their own account. The mystery
surrounding Mojor-Gen-rnl Sir Fred-
riek Carrington's release trnni his
oomraaud in this district, accompanied
by nu unofficial statement that he was
gning to South Africa, is now solved.
Heretofore, for   reasons best known to
themselves, the Wni Offloe officials
have refused to assign General Curriug-
ton to any command in South Africa,
despite his long experience with British troops 111 rhat country.
"Now it, is known lliut (Jeoil Rhodes
and tlie Chartered Company have re-
neived permission to raise, equip and
put iii the field a force of regulars
and the War Ofllce lias loaned General
Carrlngtnn to the South Afiican millionaires to command this foree. No
one can tell   what   the strength of this
[oroe will he 01 where it will operate,
neither will  the   fiiemis  of General
OarringtOll here say whether there will
be a native COlltingsUt with it. The

following notices: "We are advised

Will   he  Slopped. "
London, Jan. __.���(4:10 p. in. I-As
the atternoon ptogressed the excite-
ment on Pall Mali reached a high
pitch. Bul the Wnr Office officials reported Ul 8:80 p.  111.,    the   Oft repealed
statement that "notblug has bean received from General Bnller."
The suspense was Increased by the
helief thai General Buller would never
have published bis intention 10 attaok
the Boers on  Bplons kop unless sniis-
tied that   the assault would lie   carried
South Afrioa, confining himself ohiefly
to u renewal of his indictment of the
'��� policy which led to hostilities." He
ridieuleil "the 1101 inn that n lew Boer
.accesses entitled the Tiunsvaul to lie
lesoribed as u li bi Mass military cower," and declared that the fact of the I
Soets sending the ultimatum no more
disposed of nil tlm other questions than !
the defiance nf the Amerionii Colonists,
in throwing the toil into Boston Imr
hue. disposed ul nil the questions nf
ihe wur  of American Independence.
"It is quite certain,'   continued Mr.
Morley. "thai bad the Government appreciated   the temper uf the Transvaal j
people and forsoen what wo* coining��� j
what we  nil  know   in these   hlnok, ;
iilonmy days���there wonld   hnve  been
un war.    ll    is dreadful hut line,   that
a want of foresight and decent inform-
atlon led the   Government to stumble
into   wnr    in   ihe   dark.    Lord  Salis
bury's menacing speech of Julv   '-.8, if
applied to a great   power, oould   only
have meant   war.    It   was absurd,   if
the Government   really believed in  n
Dntoh conspiracy,   to  sneud   time iu
negotiations  regarding (he  franchise.
The conspiracy was at, aftertbongbl of
the Governmeut  conjured up to   mask
a hideous ami ghostly blunder."
In conclusion, Mr. Morley declined
to commit himself as to whui would
happen in the future, hut he warned
his hearers net to he duped by the idea
thai the Boers after .defeat would settle down quietly.
With reference to the point nt which
the conflict would eotuu to nn end,
Mr.   MjiTey observed:
"Something depends on 11 chuuoe,
which I hope is remote, bnt is certainly not invisible, of onr heing culled on tn ineel dangers in other quarters,'

Sn'lNew and Important |g
li is worth remarking that fifty-six
per cent, of the ten consumed in the
United Kingdom is giown in India,
and thirty-live per cunt, iu Ceylon.
Like percentages will probably hold
good for the Colonics. This means
that the Empire is drinking its own
tea. If we bad reciprocity or preference with Great Britain it wonld not
be many years before the Empire was
living on its own food stuffs.
There is a nic,' little row "ii aitioiig
the Liberals of Vancouver, Although
the row itself is purely local, there
are circumstances connected with it
that give it a Provinial character.
The tronlile wns exposed at a meeting
held in that city a few niuhts ago. It
would seem that Mr. lin-Mek and a
very faithful ami obedient follower of
his, named Kerr, decided some time
ago to mime a number of Liberals in
Viinconvei who. with other members
of the party from certain centres of
population, would assemble in Viotoria
to confer with Liberal members of the
Legislature as lo matters affecting organisation and policy. The occasion.
in fact, was intended to have the
character and assume the importance of a Provincial convention. If
called in the regular way there would
have heen nn objectiou to this; hnt it
appears that in carrying ont his no
Btruotions, Mr. Kerr oonfined the Vancouver representation to the extreme
partisans of the Bostook variety, and
that other leading Liberals were not
only ignored hut were kept iu ignor-
anco of what was going en. It was to
be a Bostock convention, ami In the
purpose of it was clearly seen a design on the pint of thnl eminent statesman and his friends lo ,'apture tho
machine and tak" entire control of the
party management.
At the meeting referred tn Mr. Joseph Martin look vigorous exception to
tlm action of Mr. Bostook nnd his
friend. Representative conventions
were not called in ihat way. but aside
altogether from tbe Irregularity ,,f
the procedure was tlio more heinous
offenoe of overlooking him. A protest
from Mr Martin would not necessarily
he a serious affair, for the gentleman
has all his life been accustomed t,, protesting against everything that he did
not himself propose oi create. Hnt on
this occasion he had the very envnesl

Mr.   MoLagan,   of Tho    Vancouver
World, says   that the   eleotion Of
British   Coluinbin   members nf Parliament was largely a iniit'er , 1 accident,

the report of the Bpeeoh which Mr.
MoLagan's paper publishes that one of
the products of those accidents was
Mr. Maxwell. Nothing thnl can be
said, however, shall persuade us that
Mr, Bostock is the result of an accident. His election was due tn the
most careful and studied design, to
which practical effeot was given ill
the judicious expenditure nf a very
considerable sum of money.
