PEACE
Doubt But That President
Kruger Was Suing
For It.
Indications are That British
Advance Will Be Unopposed.
,1IV M-OCIATBD PRESS.)
London. March ll.-(2:20a. m.)-In
the sbssnea of important nows from
the sunt nt war, speculation is rife rc-
KarilinK the probability of any early
peace.
the two Rnrnblios which may fall into
our liiiiulii, pending a political settlement. It is hoped to begin re-embarking tho bulk ol the British foroos iu
South Afrioa by July 1. It is said that
General Bnller still expects to aae tho
Derby run, hut that is too good to ha
truo. Yet many things may happen iu
11 or IS weeks an things are going on.
This, taken iu connection with Oeoil
Rhodes' stalomeut tbnt the Chartered
Company would buy artillery for Kira-
berloy, shows conclusively that the
company intends to havo arms and an
army of its own. "
President Kruger'B appeal to
Uird Salisbury for n cessation of hostilities announced ou Pri.lny is taken
as foreshadowing that the end will
noon he in sight. The Government's
views sre probably enunciated in the
following semi-official stnteineut issued last night: "It is undeistood
that the Government does not consider
thut the time has yet come for auy authoritative statement as to the ultimate terms and no merabor of the
Oaliim't has authorized any public
statement on tlm subject. It is, of
course, generally understood among all
political parties in this country thut
so (ar as the South Africa Republics
are concerned the statu quo Jante helium, cannot lemain unnltered lifter
the el"!-" ni hostilities. Their part in
the system, which iuvolved a large
measure of political and uiilitaiy independence, will of course, be materially
modified ns u result of the war, but
the growing prospects of restored peace
must be farther advanced befoie Hei
Majesty's '.Jovcrninetit can either formulate proposed terms of settlement or
make any ui.nouncemeut of their
plan."
liuiiilon, March II.���Several papers
aiiianiiii H that the Government on
Tuesday received five messages from
President Kruger and Presidont Steyn,
in Dutch, usking upon what terms a
cessation of hostilities could bo brought
about. Tho massages surprised and dc-
ligbted the department concerned.
While their tenor was understood it
was funnd necessary to havo persons
thoioughly cadnble of nccurately interpreting the messages all of which were
tiled at Hlnemfontein. The Cabinet
convened on Wednesday to consider the
messages and it is believed an uncompromising reply wns sent which is
known to have reached Bloemfontoiu
by Hie same means ns the Boer cablegram reached tbo Government. The
uatuie of the reply was such as to lead
t" a further but gradual retiremeut of
the Beer forces.

Manitoba's Provincial Treasurer Elected in Beautiful Plains.
PLATFORM
London, March 10.���The only important change in the general situation
in Sonth Africa, iudicated by tho news
received up lo uoon today, is that General Bnller is again on tho move. The
news comes in a dispatch from the
Boer oamp a Biggarsberg dated
Thursday, saying: "Twelve thousand
British are threatening tho Boor position from the direction of Helpinnnkar,
while a party of British soouts were encountered at Waschbnnk, March 8."
This force was probably General Hunter's division, and it is considered
quite possible that au attempt may be
made to traverse the Nek of Zulolaud
iuto the Transaval, thus effecting the
double purpose of outflauking the
Boers at BiggarBberg, and threatening
Vryhoid and Utrecht. The Boers are
reported to be at Biggarsberg in considerable numbers, hut it is said they
are already sending their stoies to the
rear. Goueral Joubert appearB to have
left aotive service to assist the War
Office at Pretoria.
Lorenzo Maiquez stories attribute
his action partly to the alleged fact
that be has lost control over and confidence in the Burghers nud partly to
his \vii>li to push the preparations for
the siege which are supposed to bo being made at the capital. Lord Robeits
has not reported up to this hour todav,
but the military authorities are of the
opiuion Hun General French must be
nettling Bloemfonteiu. lu some quarters General Frenoh is credited with
the design to corral both Presidents,
whose exact whereabouts, however,
are dilHoult to asoertain at this distance. The War Office is unable to confirm the rumors of the ielief of Mate-
king, but the trend of belief is that
tho relief will be effected within a few
days.

London, March 10.���Thero are many
surmises respecting tho futnre operations of Bullet's army. There were
contradictory reports yesterday of the
occupation of farms near Van Reen-
an'B Pass by British troops, the withdrawal of Warren's division from the
Natal and the assignment of General
White to oommand the forces advancing from Btormberg. White outranks
all the generals iu the field except Roberts and Bullet and bonce it is likely
that he will bo assigned to oommand
the forces now opeiating below the
Orange Uivor, preparing to invade the
tree Ktat.). Warren is senior in lank
to all the other division oommanders
��nd his appointment was duo to his
own qualifications us a general trained
in South Afrioa. The only cloud upon tbo horizon for British eyes is the
condition of the Mafekiug garrison.
Tho croakers are having mujh to say
about it, and assume that tbo Boer
"ports of the capture of all tho forts
uscept ono are correct.
Carnarvon, Cape Colony,March 10.���
Ueuerol Kitchener bus arrived at Vio-
tnrin West to organize various columns
���01 the purpose of suppressing the rebellion which is spreading in this dis-
Wet. Minor fighting has occurred in
Weral directions.
Popplar Grove, March 0, ��� General
French, who is 10 miles ahead, reports
that his front is clear of Boers. All
oilier reports tend to confirm a state
of disorgauization of the Boer forces.
The goueral impreHsion is that the
further progress of the British to
Bloemfontoiu will not be opposed.
Boer Headquarters, Biggarsberg,
Friday. March 10.���Shots were exchanged this morning near Helpmaakar
with a small body of British, who retired hastily. Scouts report that the
British main advance is coming from
Ladyamith   toward   Sunday River.
THE WAR LOAN.
All Sorts and Conditions of Men Offered to Subsoiibe.
New York, March 10.���The Mutual
Life Insurance Co., of New York, has
subscribed for ��3,000,000 of the new
English war loan. The company at
first offered to take this amount outright, and even now hopeu to secure it.
The offer of the Mutual Life Insurance
Co. was undo before the books were
officially opened for subscription, aud
it is believed, stands today as the
largest inhBoription for investment
made iu this country.

Viotoria, B. 0., March 10.���Premier
Martin has giveu the platform of the
new Government to the press. Local
men think be dealt very cleverly with
the Eight-Hour law.    The platform is
ns  follows:
In appealing to you, as the Premier
of the Province I beg to lay before you
the platform of the new Govornment
as follows:
1. The abolition of tho |300 deposit
for candidates for the Legislature.
8. The bringing into force, as soou
as arrangements can be completed, of
the Tcrren's registry system,
8. The redistribution of tbo constituencies on the bnsis of population, allowing to sparsely populated distriots,
a proportionally larger representation
than to popnlons districts and cities.
4. The enactment of an acourate system of Uoverumcnt scaling of logs.and
its rigid enforcement.
5. Tho re-enactment of the disallowed Labor Regulation Act, etc., 1898,
aud also all the Btatutes of 1899, containing nnti-Mongolian clauses, disallowed by the  Dominion   Government.
6. To take a firm stand in every other possible way with a view of discouraging the spread of Oriental cheap
labor in this Proviuce.
7. To provide for official inspootion
of all buildings, machinery and works,
with a view of compelling the adoption of proper safeguards to life and
health.
8. With regard to the Eight-Hour
law, the Government will continue to
enforce the law as it stands. An immediate inquiry will be held by the
Minister of Mines into all grievances
put forward iu counectiou with itH
operation with a view of bringing
about an amicable settlement. If no
settlement is reached, the prinoipal of
the referendum will be applied and a
vote taken at the general election as to
whether the law shall be repealed. If
the law is sustained by the vote, it
Will he retained upon the statute book
with its peual clauses. If modified
in auy way without impairing the
principle of tho law by removing any o!
tho friotiou brought about, they will
be adopted. If tho vote is against it,
the law will be repealed.

the Proviuce as an asset for the benefit
of the people and taking effeotive
measures to prevent the alienation of
the public domain except to actual set
tiers or for actual bona fide bnsiueBs or
industrial purposes, putting an end
to the practice of speculating in connection with the same.
11. Tho taking of active measures
for the systematic exploration of the
Piovinoe.
18, The borrowing of money for the
purpose of providing roads, trailB and
bridges, provided that in every oaso

the oredit of tho Province.
13. In connection with the construction of Government roads and trails
to provide by the employment of competent civil engineers and otherwise
that the Government money is expended upon a system which will bo advantageous to the general public so
that the old system of providing roads
as a special favor of tho Government
may be entirely discontinued.
14. To keep tho ordinary annual expenditure within the ordinary annual
revenue in order to preserve intact tho
credit of the Province which is its best
asset.
15. To adopt a system of government
construction und operation of railways
and immediately to proceed with the
construction of a railway on the south
side of the Fraser River, connecting
tho Coast with tho Kootenay district
with the understanding that unless the
othei railways now  oonstocted   in the
Province givo fair connections and
make equitable joint freight and passenger arrangements, the Province
will continue this lino to the eastern
boundary ot tho Province. Proper
connection with such Kootenny railway to ho given to tho Island of Vancouver. With respect to other parts

19. The establishment of an institution for the education of the deaf and

31. An amicable settlement with
the Dominion Government ns to Dead

Ludgate by which, if possible, a sawmill iudustry may be established and
carried ou on Deadmau's Island under
satisfactory conditions protecting the
interest of the public.
32. Proper menus of giving Instructions to miners and prospectors.
In connection   with   recent   events,
some   criticism     has    been    directed
against   His   Honor   the   Lieutenant-
Govornor.   It is my   duty to take  the
responsibility for His   Houor's   action
and I have not the slightest  hesitancy
in doing so. The Legislalivo Assembly
deliberately voted   want of  confidence
in Mr. Semlin's   Government.    There
were only   two   courses   open   to   Mr.
Semliu.    Either   to ask for a   dissolu
tion or resign. He adopted neither but
asked for delay   and took up tho   timo
granted to him in endeavoring to enter
iuto a most vicious  and   dishonorable
arrangement with   the members of the
House who had bceu  elected to oppose
him   until   the    defeat    was   brought
about, nud whose   principles  were directly opposed   to  his.    No   precedent
exists iu counectiou with the workings
of  British  representative  institutions
wli3ie iu a case of that kind, a Minis
ter has been allowed to hold   power by
meaus of votes    thus    obtained  aud
when   Mr. Semliu  announced to  His
Honor he would not be a,ble  to  obtain
a  vote of  confidence from the   House,
the only course   open to the honorable
gentleman was that adopted by him of
dismissing his  advisers.    In   addition
to the abovo it   appears from His Honor's letter of dismissal that there were
ample reasons for  that course, entirely
apart from   the vote   of want of confidence iu the House.
I have the   honor to be,   goullemon,
your obedient sorv mt, Joseph   Martin.

ALASKAN QUESTION.
New York, March 10. ���A   special to
Tho  Horald   from   Washington   says:
Although   no effort is being   made   to
press uogotiatious for a permanent delegation ou tho Alaskan Boundary it is
sniil today that discussion   on the Bub-
jeot ib iu progress  between tbo United
States und Great   Britain.    Iu   answer
to tho British claim for   tho establishment of the boundary at a point which
would givo England cou'rol practically
of Lynn Canal, Secretary Hay recently
sent    au    exhaustive    memorandum,
which   iu   the opinion of tho   American official clearly refutes   tho British
claim, and    shows   conclusively   that
the  waterway   belongs  to tho Dotted
States.   The  British   Government htiB
not   answered   this    communication.
There is no doubt in the minds of officials that the   loyalty   of   Canada,   to
Great Britaiu, will cause   tho   London
Government   to   bo more insistent  on
tho  claims     of   tlm   Dominion.    Tbu
United StuteB, however, holds that (bo
Lynn Canal   is   its  propelty and   tho
President has no   intention   of   relinquishing it.    The   ultimato   termination of tho controversy   will   probably
bo reached by arbitration, the  character of  which   will  be   thu   stumhlrg
block iu negotiations.
(BY A-SOCIATKU PllKSS.)
London,   March   10.���A   week  that
opened with a budget, iucrousing  the
burdou of the   British   taxpayer to  an
almost unprecedented extent, and ended with  the Quoou stirring   hundreds
of thouBands of   her subjects to enthusiastic demonstrations of pariotism and
wnr fervor, can  scarcely bo  said to be
barren  of   interesting   circumstances.
It would perhaps be giving Lord Salisbury and his Cabinet too nmoh  credit
to say   that  the sudden   springing  of
thu budget with  this enormous deficit
and tbo quiekly  planned visit of   the
Queen to   London, almost   before  the
people had time to realize how   much
thu war was   costing  tbum, were part
and parcel of  a  masterly  understanding of politics which, under thu  cloak
of academio  lethargy, is keenly  alive
to every chanoa of  tho  momeut.    But
whatever were the motives  prompting
thu    Govenment's    actions  -und    the
Queen never  moves  without  consulting Lord_Salisbury���tbey resulted most
favoiably.    No  suspicion  of   political
I'M iueilitiitii.il   has  maired the hearti
iiess of the   Queon's   welcome, though
the Irish have not moved quito so  ingenious in commenting on ber proposed visit to their shores.    Still, on  the
whole, the recent actions of thu Queen,
her decision to  remain   home  instead
of going to Italy, the   projected trip to
the Emerald   Isle and her generous recognition of the gallantry of the   Irish
troops, combined with   the  victorious
progress of   Lord   Roburts, have  ouce
more  put the United  Kingdom on ex-
cellout terms with itself.
This week'B oartoon in Punch aptly
illustrates the feeling. It ie an illy
drawn lion with un uplifted paw like
a lump of putty coming out of a cavu
with fierce teetb bared and eyes glowering iu thu direotion of an animal
which resembles nothing more thau
the well known donkey of thu American stage. It is labelled "Continental
Press" and is slinking off with a
sloucby gait before tho pugnacity of
the lion. Bot no amount of poor drawing can kill the strength of the caption
to this curious pioture, which reads,
"Who said dead?" And that voices
the spirit of the natiou today better
than could columns of analytical re-
viow. With the prospect of more serious overtues for peace than those made
this week by the Boers it is likely
that the feeling illustrated by Puucb
will in.���reave aud that tbo normal condition of self confidence and might
will shortly be thoroughly re-established iu Great Britain iu spite of thu
terrible shaking up that occurred before Lord RobertB took the helm.
In the opinion of those best informed
as to Government opii ions tbo Boors
are likely to make a series of propositions for peace, none of which will be
feasible for British consideration ontil
tho British troops practically overrun
tho Transvaal territory, and only ono
curd remains in the KepublioB' hands.
Thus while thu recent and future negotiations are aud will be welcomed
as satisfactory signals of British military piogress they are not considered to
indicate that, the end of the war is in
sight. As an iustanco of this Lord
Salisbury's reception of two long
cablegrams from President Kruger on
the subject of tho terms did not doluy
for an instant tho preparations for
sending out laigo British reinforcements and supplius either from England or from fai off Australia. However the trophet of pessimism and
ohango is not stilled entirely.

A USELESS MEMBER.
Mr. Mnlook's Redistribution Bill
has passed the Commons stage, and
now awaits the notion of the Senate.
Nobody is  surprised   at   this.    It was
carried through tbo Commons a
year ago, nnd when Introduced
ns a Govi rnment measure it was
quite expected that it would meet with
a like experience tliiH year. The Government profess to believe that u rearrangement of the constituencies is
most desirable ut tho prsont time.
There is to bo a census uext year, to
he followed by a redistribution, but
Muiiatms say thoy omiuot wait; tho
matter is so pressing that they must
antioipate the usual procedure, and
ou the very eve of n census go to all
the trouble nescossary to a fresh arrangement of tho constituencies. The
present conditions must be very un
satisfactory, indeed,when it is thought
to bo impossible to uwait the result of
a census that must be tnken next year.
That is the Government's positiou,
aud of necessity the positiou also of
their supporters in Parliament. The
inequalities of representation are so
llugraut that it is the duty of Parliament to remedy them at once. The
guide In such cases is thu regular do-
couuinl census, but the cane is too urgent. One of the greatest of tho inequalities is that of Yale-Cariboo. This
Constituency iH scarcely a deoado old,
hut at tho time of its furmutinu the
hunt!.nay- were unknown. It is tiue
that on tbo maps of those dnys there
was a spot marked Nelson, but of the
place ilsolf very few had ever heard.
Rossi and had no existence, and the
maps had 110 Knowledge of Biich placus
as Kaslo, Slocan, Sundoii, New Denver, and other populous and enterprising mining camps that have since given the Kootenays a woi id-wide reputation. Bevelstoke was known, but it
has since mere than doubled its popu
lation. Within oven more receut years
the thriving to.vns of Fernie and
Cranbrook have sprung into existence,
with other more or less ambitious
centres of population along the lino of
the Crow's Met! Railway. The Yalo
Cariboo of 1S1I1 knew not any of then
places, yet without them it was considered untitled to a representative.
It contained a population approximating 30,0011, which foil but little short
of the unit on which tbu representation is based.
Since 1HII1 Yule-Cariboo, which includes the Kootenays, has grown
largely in population, The towns jnsl
named considerably outnumber the
entire popuUion of the constituency in
1801, to say nothing of the hundred
smaller Camps that have beou established. If the conditions require a iodis-
tirbntion before tho next goueral election, surely   hero   is n ease that   calls
most  loudly  for  consideration,   The
Kootenays caunot be said lo have any
representation in Parliament. They
contain a population greater by
several thousand* t lian that nf
the old Yale-Cariboo, yot iu a redistribution winch tho Government iiroposo to make this aession
tbey are ignored. Tbo Rill went
through its vurious readings, und the
gentleman who is supposed to have the
interests of the coiititiinncy in his
kerning sat hy and uovor uttered a
wnid. It has often been said thut Mi.
BostOOk is a USSlesi member, but il
ia doubtful if the statement ever received tuoie striking confirmation than
it did by bis eileuco throughout the
Ntiigcs of a measure professing to remedy the Inequalities of our representation.    If   there wns necessity for   the
HiH nt nil.   tlm case of tbo  Kootenays
was one of the very strongest that
could be advanced. Yet Mr. Roitook

SOME   OPINIONS.
ami will nut touch him with a  pair
tongs H has been collecting Borne
opinions held by prominent  members
of the Executive of the Liberal Association of British Ooiumbia, and just at
t Iii-, time, wheu tho general political
situation is iu Hiich a disturbed state,
these will be rend with much interest. Wo quote in part only in each
case.   Mr. Benkler suys:
"1 was born und bred u Liberal and
am Liberal to the buokbonn, but unlike
many strong Conservatives, 1 will sacrifice all my political feelings and my
desire to see Ihu Liberal patty supremo, nnd vote for the rankest Tory
they Clin bring out ruther than that
this evil should he brought upon tho
Province.    It is very aggravating  thut
tlm Conservatives of Vancouver should
attempt to force pury lilies; should
throw down the gauutlot to tbo Liberals of thiH city; extremely annoying,
that owing to a sense of duty above
party that gauntlet must bo leftunlifl-
ed, but I think the battel elomaiit of
the Liberals in Vancouver think ns I
do, and ruther than Martin should Hit
iu judgment at Victoria wo will let
the Conservatives of Vancouver, who
have declared for party lines, have
their way aud vole uguiust Martin in-
depiimlent of politics."
Equally outspoken is Mr. D. G.
Maodomicll, Vico-Piesidcnt of tho Association :
"Mr. Martin suys that he will abide
by the convention to be bold by the
Liberals whether he will run on party
lineB or not, aud if tho c:>nveution decide against party lines he will run ns
a unit and will hope for their support
us unitH Then nrises the question of
whut stntus Mr. Mnrtin will take as a
unit. The question is very much involved nt present, hot I suy this,
that strong Liberal us I am, if I am
compelled to vote, I would sooner vote
for a declared Conservative running in
the interests of the Conservative party
in British Columbia than for Joe Mnrtin running us the leader of the Liberal part) iu this Province."
Tbo views of Mr. James McQueen are
thus reported:
"Ho was of the opiuion that the
Provincial Executive of the Liberal
party would not rccomiuoud party
lines in Provincial politics nt Ibis
juncture, owing to Joseph Martin's
personality. Mr. McQueen suid that
ho bud been most pronounced iu advocating party lines ever since bo had
resided in British Columbia, but he
feared that now, when tbo first opportunity bail arrhed to tako u stand in
that direction Mr. Martin's personality
interfered seriously with tho proposition. . . . Ho said if Mr. Martin
wns to bo opposed ho should be opposed ns an undesirable man to send to
Victoria ns tbo head of tho Government. Ah a politician he thought it
would perhaps be impossible to huvo
the Liberal party unite upon Mr. Mur-
tiu us their leader."
Mr. Iliggins, barrister, of Victoria,
was also interviewed :
"He states positively that tho Martin people cunnot come auy way near
getting n sent in or nround Victoria.
That thoso who have consented to have
anything to do with him hnve lost immensely in popularity, and that por-
soniilly though strongly a Liberal in
Dominion politics, before agreeing to
have the Province Huddled   with   suoh
uu arrangement  as that lately mado,
nnd if necessary to break it up Mr.
Higgins himself, and many of bis
friends iu Victoria, will voto Conservative. "

After two years of more or lens violent abuse of Mr. Martin, The Van-
coover World, iu the shiirt space of
two weeks, has become his most zealous aud almost only defender. It jus-
tides his selection as .Freniier, al-
thoiiRh without a visible follower anywhere, and cites as a precedent t_n
call of Kir Oliver Mowat from the
Ilonch in Wii, to form a Government
Oil tbe ietiremont of Mr. Blake from
tbo Outario Legislature Heing Vice-
Chancollor, it says, he waB not even a
membor of tbe Legislature, and would
not therefore have any followers. Wtinie
pitying friends ot The World should
endeavor to get it to comprehend what
a renl precedent is, When Mr. Mowac
came dowu from the Bench to ro-entor
politics be had every Libera] in Ontario at bis buck. Tho World did not
boar, did it, that the Ontario Legislature repudiated him by it unanimous
vote when informed that he   had   been
culled upon to fonn   a  Government?
If need (inly be added that Kir Oliver
Mowat's friends will feel strongly inclined to resent any sort of comparison
between him and   Mr. Joseph  Martin.
Mr. Houston mid his paper have
derived greet satisfaction In quoting
(nun Tho Toronto Telegram, Here is
ii sentiment which they hnve overlook.
od, no doubt quite by accident:
"Nun-partisan government menus government by men wlm are tho partisans
(ii a certain set of interests, Party
government, means government by men
who are the partisans of n uertain set
of ideas. Ideas are usnall) nobler than
interests, and the party system is tbe
right system sn lung as it is tempered
by the independence which prevents
party leadership fiom degenerating into party tyranny."
Greatly to its et "lit, Tho Vancouver
Pioviucu has thrown over  Mr. Martin
That very   stalwart   Liberal   organ,
The   Montreal   Herald,      says:    "The
enmio opera season has opened in Victoria, B, 0. .lee Mnrtin and the Lieutenant-Governor are rivals for the role
of chief comedian,''
The Kaslo Knotenuian has a neiies
of questions this week. It asks:
"How 111 neb money has Knslo lost

ENGLAND
(millulled from Kir-t  I'iikc
correspondent of nn illustrated paper
nml obtained a commission in the
Smith African Light Horse. Be bus
now been nnidu a major, commanding
a squadron, While ho lipids the Hon���
Hie youthful I.ntly Luifihton oconplss
tlm uniqne position in England of
Master of tlm Hounds,
Bome confusion is beillg cnnsoil in
society by the luct thut there aru no loss
than four liiiiiins Queeusberry living,
the lutost Marchioness being formerly
known ns I.iuly Douglas of Hawick.
It ie now Hiiid that tbu Into Marquis
shortly before bis ileuth was visited by
the wife who divorced him] in 1887, n
pathetic reconciliation taking plaoe,
not only between husband and wife,
but with tho soiib who bud been es-
iranged, Young Lord Alfred Douglub
enn bo   seen   dining   in   more or   Iosk
fashionable company ��t well known
restaurants,
Aooording to the newly appointed
surveyor of Westminster Abbey, thnt
anoient  edifice is fust  crumbling to
pieces owing to tbo notion of tho fumes
of maiiufucturios on the opposite side
Of   the   rivor   on   the   weather   worn
stones. This contention is illustrated
by photographs o'f white patches on the
interior nnd the exterior parts of the
Abbey, Indicating crumbling.
London, March It).���yuccn Victoria
brought her visit to London to n close
this evening nnd returned to Windsor
after inspection of two battalions of
Guards, Tbronghont tho dny vast
crowds gathered outside BuckinKbani
Palace along tho advertised route to
tho railroad Station, und when the
Royal oarriagn Anally started for Hyde
Paik on ils way to Puddington, enthusiasm bioko out into oheers which
wero unbroken until tho train departed. Previous to loaving the Palace
thero was a brief hut interesting ceremony on the grounds where a,00(1
khaki clad Guardsmen, in full marching order, were drawn up for final in
spection nf Her Majesty before their
departure for South Africa on Wed
nesday.
London,March 10.���Queen Victoria's
decision to stay in her owu dominion
instead of going to Italy und all jubi
letions in England in consequence nic
not entirely duo to causes attributed
by tho press. It is learned that the
Italian Government has daily been
growing more nervous as the" date of
tbe Queen's visit approached, and finally notified Her Majesty's Government that it would not care to accept
the responsibility of the Sovereign's
visit,owing to strong unfriendly niovo
nient throughout Europe. Reports
from other powers confirmed the Itnl-
Inn impression. This nppnrontly was
tho chief factor in tho Queen's sudden
change of plain though doubtless many
of her Ministers always thought it
better policy for her to remain at
home, whilo tbo nation is in war. In
auy case tbo rOHuIt and tho ucoompanv.
ing cclcbiations aud tho announcement of the Queen's coming trip to
Ireland, has bad a most beneficial
effoot on tho United Kingdom. It has
long been n standing grievance that the
Queen so seldom visited Loudon, hut
her present stay fully atones for past
neglect. As fnr society in Ireland, it
is in a statn of hubtiuh and excitement
ns bus not been seen for many years.
Regardless of politics the Queen's visit
to Dublin will donbtless bo made the
occasion for unprecedented festivities,
though throughout Gloat Britain
there will be some tension until the
Queen has recrossed the channel in
Biifety.
There is good a doul of chagriu displayed over what is termed Lord Roberts' too generous treatment of (ieuornl
Cronjo, and the tendency in some sections of tie press to hysterically over-
rato Oronje'S bravery. Many references are now made to Cronjo's al leg-
oil dishonesty in tho former war, in
aoceptlng the surrender of the British
garrison of l'lilscbcfstrom, when a
general armistice bad been proclaimed.
The Government is contemplating
sending tbo liner leader to St. Helena,
but no definite decision has been
reached.

LAMENT OF THE TROOPER.
Upon the first Canadian contingent
arriving at Oapn Town it was discovered thut whilo thu complement of
tunics was complete, there were lucking four hundred brooches. Henry
Dalhy, late of The Montreal Star,
who has wooed the muse, nt a dinner
given by Sir Charles Tupper, voioed
ibe plaint of the light clad brigade us
follows:
The bravest palled when ho was told
That somebody had blundered ;
And thu corps' supply of pantaloons,
Was minus just lour hundred.
Our hearts aie brave,and yet we grieve
At prudence so neglected ;
They send us to the trout and leuvo
Our rear quite unprotected.
We marched for many   a wenry   mile,
In a costume, light aud uiry ;
A little in the classic stylo
Of Grecian statuary,
Of course we met sonic very bard,
Some trying situations;
It took us all our time to guard
Our base of operations.
Our Buffering would bo less keen;
Wuru tbey any chance of getting
A box or two of vaseline
Aud u little mosquito nottiug.
We've scissors and  needles and cottons
and  pins;
Rut nowhere to put tin patches',
We've pipes and tobacco aud that  scit
of tilings,
But nowhere to strike the   matches.
This thing is getting monotonous,
And Wi long for the sake of   variety
To tuck our shirts Into  divided sknts,
As they do iu polite society.
Our statesmen talk of glory.    Why?
We've no heart toi glory now, sirs,
We'll talk of medals byo and bye,
Just now wo waut our trousers.
We long to meet the foemnn's steel,
To bear the welcome rally :
"Come on, ye royal Bans culottes:
"Charge: Bordeu'H corps de bullet I"
And whon the batteries unmask,
O'er head the iron bail sciecches;
Then all wo ask, "Give us the tusk
To storm Pretoria's breeches."
A FAREWELL BANQUET.

Constable Alan Forrester, of Robson,
came iu on the C. P. R. train lust
night with n prisoner named Wm.
Johns. Johns had stolen a ham from
a Ohiniinmn named Wall Lee, a resi
dent of Robson. Wah accompanied the
constable here and as sunn us they arrived the prisoner was taken to Chief
Bullock Webster's olllcc where Magistrate Orease held court as Stipendiary
Magistiate.     It was ruther quick work
as the offense occurred at I :S0 p.   m..
and tbe trial took place before 12 p.
m. Wah Lee, who bears a good iepu
tation, was sworn according to the
Chinese form of oath, and swore that
the prisoner hnd purloined the ham
from his honse. Countable Forrester
testified to seeing tbo prisoner with
the ham iu u sink. He also said that
sfter the prisoner had been shackled
and locked up he broke out of the jail.
When found he bad gotten rid of one
leg shackle and was armed with an
nxe. Before he could again be secured
Forrester was obliged to disarm him
at the point of a revolver. The prisoner denied the charge in Into. Mngis
trate Crease after hearing the evidence
gave Johns a sentence of six months at
bard labor.   In doing so bo commented
ou the fact that there was no doubt as
to the prisoner's guilt nnd also Mint ho
had aggravated the offense by tbe attempt to break away, for that reason
be gave Inn' u severe sontenco. Tho
prisoner was thou taken to the jail to
serve his torui.
