Mr. Balfonr, the (ioverninent lender,
said in answer to a question, that
while the military operations were
proceeding he could not answer any
inquiry as to the slaughter of the
Highlanders at Mngersfenteiii. Regarding the nispatohes of Major-General
Sir William Ftancis Butler, who wus
in command of the British troops in
South Afrinn, until August, IHllll,
when he was relieved by Lieutenant
General Sir Frederick William Fores-
ter-Wnlkor, it Being intimated that
Genernl Buller's sympathies were in
favor of tlm Boots, Mr. Balfour
said there were no reasons to present
them to tho House. < ieueral Butler's
opinion in South Africa affairs, he
added, was well known. The general
had never suggested to the War Otllce
either puulidy or privately that the
number Of troops required would be
anything like the number actually
sent.
In regard to the suggestion ihat Indian troops should   have been used   iu
South Africa, the House, Mr. Balfonr
said, would understand the impossibility of this.
Replying to questions relating to the
letters of Mr. B. F. Hawks-ley, counsel
or the Hritish South   Africa Company,
and other hitlers published hy thu Oor-1
respoudeuce  Beige,   tlm  Secretary of I
Statu for   the   Colonies, Mr. Chamber-1, ,    ,, _
lain admitted tbut those of which he I l
had personal knowledge wera published substantially correct. The letters
hud heen, ho added, stolen Irom Mr.
Ilawksley's ollice by a cleik who wns
summarily dismissed in 1887. Mr.
Chamberlain further declared that lie
was only aware of tlm existence of
tbe letters a few days before they were
published.
Sir Charles Dilke, advanced Radical
member for the Forest of Dean division of Gloucestershire, resumed tbe
debate on Lord Edmund ViizMaurice's
amendment to the address tn reply to
the Speech from the Tbioin. He said
he thought no onn could deny tbat the
result had been to kill tho belief of
the world in Great Britain's ability to
conduct a wur. "My country's military reputation,'' be added, "was
never lower, and even now tbo Government failed to grasp the serious-
niss of the wnr."
Mr. George Wyudham, Parliament.
my beoretary lor tbo War Office, wbo
followed, admitted tbe War Otllce hail
Out been unimpeachable, hut he argued
ihat Hie Government had done iis
be-d considering the limitations of tbe
military system aud welcomed criticism, us tbe country would (.bus lie
cnsilncd to luin tn best account thu
tide of patriotism linn Ihe lessons ol
the war. ll the (jtc el'mncin bad done
wrong he continued, it bud done il
wiili right motives Ihe caioiiial
paints in the campaign, were, m-i a i
desire to give diploiuncy a (bailee; second, the tl.fis nn uf General Buller
to relieve Lnilysinitb. ll must not be
supposed Unit be ci it ici/.cd General
Hnller's decision. Genernl Hulb r was:,
ou the spot uuil could doubtless �� J' "
plum his action It v.asejsy to con
cejve other disasters which might have
Occurred along another line of ndvitiice,
The) might have bad a un.versil li-e
of tbe   (jape   Dutch.      Mr     -A . unburn
again deplored tne amendment  which
he assarted would   be   "inisiiiideistni d
by the continental critics,   by our fellow   suhjocts   ill   Natal,    uud   by   our
kinsmen in America, who are   watch
ing the   vicissitudes of    the struggle.
As regards   the toices   engaged, M
Wyiidhani said,    that exclusive   ol lbe
I'.iu'hth division and tbe Fourth Cavalry Brigade, t_r.nl   Britain had 149. ���
nun foot ami artillery, 8,700 cavalry, lill
-i.gc guns. IIS naval gnus, 8-   Ibiwit/.
"atlnpr adequate measures rn bring tin.
war to a successful issue nnd to pro-
led the country against any complications that might arise." The debate
was then adjourned.
The gossip in the lobbies tonight indicates a belief that Sir Henry Damp-
bell-Bannerman's support of the
amendment to the address hns lauded
him in n tight place. The amendment, ns a party movn to unite all
sections of Liberals, has failed. It-
has only resulted in rally ing the snn-
porteis of tbe Government who bad
been considerably embarrassed by criticisms even on their own side. Moreover, the followers nf Lord Rosebery
will probably bo even larger than ns-
nal, It is felt that the Liberals have
been trying to make capital out of the
ciisis, an attempt which is utterly
out of touch with tbe real feeling of
the country.

IN SPITE OF AUTHORITY.
Ictimatiou hm been made hy the Attorney-General tnat the grosaei feature
of the Coal Mine- Regulation Bill will
be dressed down iu tbe Committee
stage. The Bill is so evidently directed against the Chinese tbat not even a
pretence at concealment i- made, but
to reach them it is thought to be tie-
cssary to make tbe ednqation test goners! in its application, It is proposed
t,. get over the difficulty in the exclusion of white laborers by giving min
iug inspectors discretionary powers.
Through the txeici f these, illiterate whites may be allowed to escape
tbe prohibition that will be tigidly enforced against the Chinese.
The Legislature will make a grave
mistake, however, if it settles down
to the oonriotion that ihi- will end
the matter. The Chinese may be a must
undesirable class, of whom it would
be a fortunate thing if the Province
nns well rid. As to that thcr- may
1*, and are, differences ol opinion.
Bnt undesirable or uo'., 11 is
donbtful in the extreme if the Provincial autbotity can do anything against
them indirectly that it may not d.i directly.    Tbe   Judicial    Commit! f
tha Imperial Privy Council have al-
reaoy decided that tbe British I'nlnm
hia Legislature -anniit exclude th.111 01
weigh them down with disabilities
by direct legislation. Their Lord-
ships have held that the Parliament ol
the Dominion "is invested with exclusive authority 111 all matters which directly concern the right-, privileges.
and disabilities of the ulaas of Chinaman whn ar.- resident In the Pmv
iuces of Canada." It i- beyond tbe
p..wer of the Provinoe, therefore, to
directly interfere with these people
Let ns see what may not be done in
directly Iu au able letter t.. Tie- Victoria Colonist. Mr. Oasaidy calls to
mind another judgment of the Privy
Council, rendered as late as Jnly
last, in the case. Mail.lcn >-. Nelson S
Kurt Bbeppard Railway Company.
The Province cannot legislate in r.-
spect ti railways that have bren declared for the general advantage I
Canada ; but although It conld not order this Company to fence their line,
it presumed to hold them responsible
for injuries that might recall by reason of tbe line nnt being fenced. __
cane arose that ultimately _. nt n, the
Privy Council,which held that lbe legislation  Was llllll    Tins,     I'll    the  Well
known principle thnt "you oannot
do that indirectly which yon are pro
hibiled from doing directly.' The
Legislature cannot directly imis.se .liabilities on the Chinese; it Is indi
rectly seeking to do it by Imposing an
education test: is it not plain that it
is exceeding its authority, and 1-
merely preparing future tti iible and
expense to set aside its legislation?
Hxtmordinan ouve.nairy.wa all know
that ii,  dauds convicted ont if his own

monstrous gonsebenies of the season.
