railway communication to
the Cane intaot, Lord Roberts will in
u very few days be in a position to be-
eiu tiu' advance to Pretoria. His deep
political Intuition combined with his
bold strategy is having the result desired in tlio southern sections of the
Orange Free State which are rapidly
miming down; i Mafeking is now
tbe only point and as it is known a
foioe has left Kimberley, its relief
may be announced before many days
puss. The efficiency of the relieving
force is heightened by the fact., that is
partly composed of regulars. In tbe
lobbies of Parliament last evening it
wns rniunreil thut Lord Roberts iH
about In issue a proclamation announcing that the former system of Government in the Orange Free State is nb-
ollehed and promising the Free Staters
who surrender due cousiderntoiu.
It is unilerstod that all tho continental powers, with no exception, un-
oompromisingly refused to intervene.
The ejoeption was Russia, whose reply
wis couched in less Arm language, al-
thouRli like the ntheis, she declined to
interfere. It is said that the Pope was
also appealed to, but that he declined
to do anything beyond writing a lettor
lo the Queen, appealing to her to stop
the further effusion of bolodehed.
Dr. Leyds' efforts with King Loopold
were quite futile. The possibility of
the destruction of Johannesburg is
still discussed here, bnt it is believ id
that Fieucb and Ger,nan shareholders
would oiler a strong protect. The
latest advioes respecting the surrender
of Bloemfontein show that the approach of tbe British caused a stampede, Thirteen trains, each comprising forty cars and all crammed with
Boers, hurried northward just before
the line was cut. Mr. Steyn would
have been compelled to snrronder, but
lie protended that hi was going to visit ouo of the outposts and at midnight
took 11 carriage which was awaiting
for bin, outside the town, and thus
escaped. The Boers got the bulk of
their wagons aud military Btores away.
bee ,e to march into Bloemfontein
at the head of tbe brigade, as 1 intended. I promise you however, thut 1
will lead you into Pretoria."
General Gatae.ro ih holding Bethnlio
and the whole line of the railroad
south of Bloemfontein, is now in the
bands of the British. General Bra-
bant'H column having crossed the
Orange Kiver, after a forced niaroh,
nt Aliv.nl North on Sunday, and Oeu-
eral Clements' column being across at
Vans Vnnsyl, the three columns will
form an army of 12,000 to 15,000 men
which is expected to replace the forces
of Lord Roberts at Bloemfontein, as
he pushes northward. Juat where the
Boors will attempt to oppose that
march is an important question hut it
oannot be easily answered until General Joubert is more definitely located.
Further news has reached the outside
world from Mafoking, dated Friday,
March 9. showing that though the
garrison was in hard straights they
were buoyed up by the knowledge that
their plucky light was appreciated at
home.
Loudon, March 10.���Lord Roberts has
sent the following dii patch to the
War Office: "Bloemfontein, Friday,

New York, March 18.���The London
correspondent of The Herald suys:
There are ample and eloquent indications that tho Queen's message about
soldiers wearing the sliamrook has
been interpreted in n wny which Her
Majesty can scarcely have expected,
for St. Patrick's Day is going to be
celebrated here ns a grand national festival. Long ago it was announced
thnt the Iii��h national flag would
wave above the Mansion House tomorrow, but this also had,like theJQucon's
message, results wliioh scarcely could
have been expected for it gave the
idea all over the country to sport the
green ting. Tbe result was that yesterday people were wander ing uncut clamoring for Irish ling, with which to
deo irate their houses and were intensely disappointed to hour that nil
such dags hud been sold. Each train
is bringing in crates ot shamrock
from Ireland. It is quite safe to predict that tomorrow all Biitisb subjects will wear the shamrock in honor
of the gallant IriBh soldiers at the
front and that ovprywbero possible the
barp on the green ground will wave
alongside the Union .Tuck and the National Staudnrd."
London, March 17.���The Daily Mnil
has the following dispatch from Lorenzo Marque'/,, dated Friday March 111:
"Entrenching is proceeding in the
Vanl River at Vanoyning. Late am-
vnls from Pretoria say thut the Boer
themselves now admit thnt their
cause is hopeless. General Luons
Meyer refuses tr fight   again   and   has
returned to bis fiirm. General -Sohnlk-

onrgliers are going home by the hundreds."

rebel leaders have been arrested.
Iu nn interview published in theOnpo

saying: "I feel strongly that we can

Monterey Railed at 5 o'olcck. Everything was in first olass order. Tbere
are on bonrd 85 officers,40 non-commissioned offioorB, B85 men, and 100 members of the oiew. Lord Seymour, Sir
Malaohi Daly, and Dr. Borden attended. The troops marched down with
all tbe bands in the city, members of
uoth local Houses, acting mayor und
all tbe aldermen, to the steamer which
sniled from the Intercolonial wharf
where she.was loaded. The public was
admitted and behaved themselves in
au orderlv manner. All the wharves
were lined with people and there wns
tremendous enthusiasm. The steamer
wus beautifully decorated and looked
like a yacht. All the orew were dressed
in new uniforms and a spooinlly made
hite silk ting floated at;the mizzen,
with Lord Strathcona's coat of nrms,
worked u the centre. The steamer
dropped down to deep water and will
sail to sea at 8 o'clock tomorrow morning. Dr. Borden^received the following telegram from Lord Strathcona,
whioh was read to the troops: "Please
read to my force, the following grao-
iouB message received by me through
Her Majesty's privnte seoretary, and
aftor reading kindly see it has proper
publioity :
" 'Her Mn]e8ty would he glad if before they start you would convey to
them an expression of her confidence
that they will prove themselves worthy
comrades of her Canadian soldiers, who
are now bo gallantly fighting for the
I'.nipim'i cause. The Queen wishes
thero ull success aud a safe return to
their homes in tbe Dominion.' In my
reply, I stated that both officers and
rauu consider it a privilege to have
tbe honor of showing thoir Sovereign
uud the Empire tbat they may be relied npou to do their duty us Canadians
and as loyal British subjeots nnd to
justify the confidence in them to whioh
Her Majesty has been graoionsly pleased to give expression." Another oable
from Lord Strathcona Bays: "PleaBe
express to Colonel Steele, oflicerB and
men, my great disappointment at not
being able to witness thoir departure.
I looked forward with great pleasure
to tbe opportunity of personally wishing i limn God speed aud a safe return.
Am quite sure they will acquit themselves bravely und gallantly in anv
somen entrusted to them and they will
do credit to themselves, to the Dominion, nud our beloved Sovereign."

Dr. Moutngne lesnmod.the debato on
preferential tariff, He denied that the
Liberals had carried out their pledges.
He went on to say that Canada's preferential arrangement with Britain
was giving awuy something (or notb-
iug and wus thu means of upsetting
Mr. Jos. Chamberlain's scheme for Imperial Federation and inter-Colonial
trade. He said tbe object of the Government in supporting Mr. Russel's
motion was to obtain electioneering literature. The preferential tariff had
not done anything to increase the market for Canadian products. Whatever
hnd been done in that way was because
of the policy ot the late Government,
carried out at the time when Liberals
wero culling out for a market of
flixty million people at our doors. He
said that Sir Wilfrid Laurier claimed
to be a nation builder but in his opinion, he wns not nn Empire builder.
It was the men who built the OP.R.
and adopted the National Policy that
were the nation builderB. Britain
never asked for euoh a preference. It
was given in hope of catching the loyal vote iu Canada. "We have," said
Mr. Montague, "as much right to ask
a quid pro quo from John Bull as from
auy other one. Sentiment was senli
ment, but in trade business was business. ''
Mr. MoMnllen of North Wellington
deniod that Canada was not getting
something in return for the preference
whioh it was extenr.ing to Great Britain. Every business man knows that
Canada was greatly benefited by tho
preference. On the other hand the
passing of the National Polioy was a
slap in the face to England. What the
people of Canada wanted was an honest Government, wbish they were now
getting, and au honest return for the
benefits of tbe people. He contrasted
tbis 'd all the scandals which existed
when the Conservatives ruled. The
tariff was changed now in the right
direction. The coiridors of Parliament were not orowded now, as tbiy
were when the late Government was
in power, by delegations seeking more
protection. The debate was adjourned
at a late hour.

to prove the Semliu Government
guity of a monstrous outrage in issuing a Grown grant to the New Vancouver Coal & Land Co., for property under the sea opposite the E. & N.
towiiRite at Newcastle, which luaHer
is now in dispute in the courts. The
general concensus of opinion, however,
is that tbe matter is of little importance inasmuch nR the deed issued is
simply supplementary to the original
holdings acquired by the company
from the Hudson's Buy Co.
Tho Times sums up tho situation
very fairly. It nays: An examination
of the document bearing on the allog-
��d "gift," which, it is alleged the
late Semliu Government bestowed on
tbo New Vancouver Coal Co., discloses
the fact that tho now deed simply confirms the title, as fnr as it is possible
for the Province to do ho, to property
which the company Iiiih been in possession of and haH worked lor many years.
Tho property passed into the hands of
the present company through tho medium nl the Clown, the Hudson's Bay
Co., nnd the old Vancouver Co. No
new lands are included in the deed
and the claim that the output should
not hi exempt from royalty might jiiHt
aa reasonably bo advanced in regard to
all miues in operation previous to the
pasfliigo of the present law. It isn matter (or argument whether the local
Government had tho legal right to
grnnt a deed, but tbeir notion in doing
so will no doubt he touted in the
courts. There is one thing In the pro-
looedings which deserves condemnation
and that is tho failure to gazette the
instrument iu the usual way. It Is a
matter whicli could not be kept secret,
and we fail to see any reason why an
effort should havo been made to aup-
press the fnots.

may be traced to a crisis in the history
of tbe country which necessitated a

BY PARTY, FOK THE COUNTRY.
"We don't want Martin ; we don't
want Conservatives; we don't want
Liberals. We want good men, regardless of party. " So wrote a Merchant,
in a letter to a Viotoria paper, and
the newspapers are seizing on the
sentiment and making much of it. It
is very fine���as a sentiment; bnt it
will uot stand tbo tost of experiment.
It is like mnuy other beautiful sentiments that are treasured for show but
are well understood to be of no practical use. In one word, it is Utopian ;
and there ought to bo few of us who
requiro to be told at this late day that
things Utopian very rarely stand the
wear and tear of actual life. We don't
want sin in tbe world, but we have
it. If we could do away with all criminals nnd oranks; if there were no bad
men, aud the good were nuited ; if we
could drive party spirit, with its ambitions and jealousies and prejudices,
into the outer darkness, and all agree
on the thing that was best, we should
have an ideal world, with ideal government.
We don't want Martin. For the great
majority of us that is quite true, bnt
there are those who do want him, and
the important thing at present is that
we have him whether we want him
or uot. And why not Mr. Martin, as
well as Mr.Brown or Mr. Jones or Mr.
Robinson? He and his friends have
precisely tbo same right to make a personal fight tor political control in this
Province as any other individual and
his friends. If be can sneaeed he is as
much entitled to enjoy his triumph as
the other would be. It is all a matter
of accident or finesse. Today it is Mr.
Martin's turn, and if be can improve
his opportunity he w.ill deserve the
success that awnits him. It is folly to
quarrel with the situation, for it is of
our own ranking. We have put the
honors of Oovernmeut up to the competition of political athletes, and for
the moment Mr. Mnrtin stands out as
winner. Ten, flftoorr, twenty years
ago these athletes were men of reputa
tion, whom it was no disgrace to follow. Down to Mr. Turner's time
there waB no complaint on the ground
of character. But it will haidly be
denied that under our system tbe
standard of tbe contestants was rapidly
deteriorating. After the disappearance of Mr. Tnrner there was a sudden
drop to a very low standard. The
mon who composed the Semlin Administration had no idea above their own
personal ambitions and desires, and so
selfish were tbey that they bad been
together only a few mouths when they
began plotting against each other. The
next step waB to a lower plane still,
for our Government has fallen to a
professional whose whole political life
has been dovotod to conspiracies and
betrayals. Nothing else oonld bo expected, for our system led to tbis.
Mr. Mnrtin is the natural product of
Ihe personal government that has been
in vogue iu this Province, and his
success would merely servo us an encouragement to political ndventnrors
from all over tho Dominion. We convict onrselvos of folly in quarrelling
with the result, for it is impossible
that it oould be otherwise. It would-
be most gratifying if we could realise
the ideal, but the real has an awkward habit of thrusting itsolf in ahead,
and it will continue to do so until human unture becomes so vaBtly improved tbnt wo shall fail to recognise oven
ourselves.
The trouble has been that we have
taken a superficial view of things; we
have imposed nrran ourselves by accepting the canting sentiment of those
who preach against party. We do not
want this party or that party, it is
said, but holiest men whose thoughts
are all for tbe publio welfare. That
lias been the cry, and wo have boon
shallow enough to believe in It. We
hnve been unable to reuliso that there
are no snob mon in oxistenoe and never hnvo been, and wh9n tho meu as
they are have been enoouragod hy our
system of personal government it
would ho struuge indeed if our politics
did not get iuto a worse and worse
plight. It will bo better for us if we
conoludo at once that all tbis timo wo
have beon deceiving ourselves. Our
system was bound in time to reduce
us to the present extremity, and we
sin.11 be fortnuato if tho sitnntlon become no worse. It oertainly will
grow worse if we rMirsist in maintaining personal government. No mero
eonlltion of individuals can restore
permanency to the poltiloal situation.
There will never be even an approach
to reputable, successful, ntuble government in British Columbia until we
adopt straight party lines, and thnt secure for ourselves the guarantee of
party instead of individual reputation.
There is another shallow cry,that there
is no connection between onr Provincial nll'ai 1 h and those of tbo Dominion
on which Liberals nud Conservatives
divide. Kven our fish know that
much, if they know anything. It Is
not pretended thai there is.   But iu
all British countries there ure two
pirtios, one progressive and even rndi-
oal, another more conservative. That
is tbe line of division. They may call
tbemsevles what they please, but in
matters of Government tbe reputation
of the party ia pledged to do its best,
whether the field is the Empire, the
Dominion, or a Province. It might be
possible to make a personal combination that would patch up the frightful rents caused by the present system,
but at best it conld only be but temporary ; there could be no aBsuranoe of
stability, and it would only be a question of time when we should find ourselves again floundering in a political
quagmire.	
In his address to the electors of
Vancouver Mr. Martin says: "As the
caucus, by a vary slight majority, sided with Mr. Semlin, I at once tendered my resignation and announced publicly that I must be considered au opponent of the Government. " From a
member of the Government to an opponent of it is a violent change, and to
make it in a moment must involve a
wholesale sacrifice of principle. Mr.
Martin was accused of something of
this kind during the recent session,
but he defended himself by saying that
he turned opponent beoause of something Mr. Cotton did long after hie
forced retirement from the Cabinet.
If be tells tbe truth in his address to
the Vancouver eleotors, as he does, be
stands convicted of abandoning principles beoause of personal disappointment; if bis explanation in the House
were the correct one, he ie guilty of do-
oeit in bis address. Time was when
Mr. Martin waB more adroit than this
in pulling wool over people's eyes.
We cannot say that it was with
much grace, but it was without any
apparent compunotioos of conscience
The Vancouver World has fnllen iuto
its place as ohief organ of the new
Premier. It makes conspionous display of its ability "to announce on authority," And two months ago The
World would have told you that Mr.
Martin was too dangerous a man to
look at even through a telescope. We
speak for it compassion, however,
rather than contempt.
The convention held in Nelson yesterday oannot compel the adoption of
ita views by the people of the Province;
but it will have its influence novertbe
less and the knowledge that ono of tbe
parties of the important district of
the Kootenays baa declared against
personal goraramont will command attention and reaped all over the Province.
ThiB is Shamrock Day. Have you
got your sprig? Wear it in memory of
the brave fellows who fell over each
other in storming many a kopje down
in Sonth Africa, in tbeir enthusiasm
to fight and die as became soldiers of
tbe Queen.	
Tbe Liberal Association of Phoenix
has declared for party lines. There is
no need to despair of politioal enlightenment ; tbe eyes of the people are be-
ing opened.
