London, March 20.-(7 :10 p. M.)-
The following dispatch has been received at the War Office, from Irfird
Roberts, dated Bloemfontein, Maroli
IH: 1 hnvo received the followiug reply
lo my telegram ^of March 11 to tba
Presidents of tbe Free State und South
Afrioan Republic: "Your Excellency's
telegram reached me yesterday. I assure you nothing would grieve me more
than that my Hurgheis would make
tbemelves guilty of acts such as that
laid to their ohnrge by vou. I am,
however, glad to suy yon must have
beeu mistaken. I have made personal
inquiry of (leneral Uelurey, who wus
in oommand of our Burghers at the
place mentioned by you. He denies
entirely that our Burghers aoted as
stated by you, but he says that on Saturday, thu date beirig illogible, the
Hi itish troops, wheu thev were about
fifty yards from onr position, put up
their hands as well as a white Hug
whilo at the aamo time your canuor
bombarded the said troops, with the
result that Ooinmandaut DeBeer was
badly woundod. Yesterday morning
the head commandant wrote in his
account of the battle as follows: 'The
solders hoisted the white Hag but were
then flrod at by tho British canuous
and 1 wns compelled to oharge.' Perhaps i t is not known to Your Exoellency
thnt the some thing Impelled at Spion
Knp, where, when a portion of the
troops hoisted a white flag nnd put up
their hands and whilst our Burghers
were busy disarming tbem, anothor
portion of the troops fired on onr
Borghors, but some of tho British
troops were killed. It hns also boen
reported that at the last battle of the
Tngelu, English cannon bred on troops
who had surrendered. With reference to the explosive bullets found in
Gronje'B laager and elsewhere, 1 oau
give Your Excellency assurance that
such bullets were not purchased or el-
lowed by the Government. I buve,
however no reason to doubt Your Excellency b statement aa I know many of
tho Burghers of this State and of tho
South African Republic took a large
number of Lee-Metford rifles nnd dumdum and othor bullets from British
troops. Mny I request Your Excellency, ns the cable iB closed to me, to
make my reply known to yonr Government and tho neutral powers by cable.

London March SI,���(4:26 a. in.)���'
Whilo there is a lull in the military
operations, the political positions of
the win show interesting developments. Tbo Colonial Oftlue has telegraphed to Capo Town the text of the
proclamation concerning destruction of
propeity. This will not be published
in London until after its promulgation in South Afrioa but it is known
that it will couvey an intimation that
any wanton destruction of British
ptopoity during the war will bo regarded as warranting a claim for compensation and as justifying a levy upon private properly shnuld the resources ol tho Transvaal Republic
prove inadequate. The fact that the
proclamation is issued by the Colonial
Office is regarded nn an indication
thut tho Republics will be administered as Crown Colonies, lu this connection it is understood that the leaders
of thu Opposition in Parliament now
admit no othor settlement is possible
since tho Republics insist upon their
demand or absolute independence, In
view of tbis tho efforts of the Liberals
will be confined to seeming in tho settlement tho best treatment for tho
Dutch population, including security
against their disfranchisement, it is
becoming as quite a settled matter
that should tne win be ended, as it is
now hoped, befoie June the Government will dissolve Parliament and
appeal to Ibe i.uintry on tbe basis of a
successful South African policy. Should
tbo war drag ou dissolution will bo
[OStponed until next spring. In any
event one of the foremost plnnks of the
Government platform will be nrmy reorganization. There is no further information as to tho movements of Sir
Alfred Milner. It is regarded as oer-
tain, however, that he has gen.' tn
Bloemfontein to arrange for tho torn-
pomry administration of tho Free
State. Mr. Stuyn's reply to Lord Huberts' charges of the misuse of flag of
truce is coninunted upon ns imperti-
uent uud ridiculous, and Lord Roberts'
courso iu closing useless  discussion   iB
commended as wise.
Indications from Nutnl seem to show
thnt Genera] Bnller'S forward movement will not lie long delayed. The
Government bus decided thnt Major
General Sir Frederick Cnriingnn shall
command Colonial force of .1,000 including the 8,600 meu Mr. Chamberlain usked for from Australia, which
will be stationed on the northern
Transvaal bordei to prevent Boer retreat or nn incursion into Hhodesia.
A statement conies from Pretoria

tbe war exceed 7,000.

London this evening, Mr. John Redmond, leader of tho Nationalist party
in the House of Commons, who presided, said that ho regarded the last nine

Russell's resolutions on the preferential
tariff was resumed today by Ur. Ma
Donald (Huron), and Craig, (East
Durham), dealt with oast pnliticnl
events such as unrestricted reciprocity
and commercial union which bo said
the Conservatives saved country from
having the Liberals carry them into
effect. Foster complained that tbo resolution was moved at a time whon il
could not   be   amended.    He   repented
that Government bad not  carried out
its pledges and went on to argue that
Canada should have something in return from Britain for preference. Ho
also contended thnt it was the intention of Laurier, ns expressed 111 his
speeohes before tbo general elections, to
secure preference from Britain. In
conclusion he gave notice of the following amendment which he would
move at the first opportunity as he could
not do so now : "That this House is
of tho opinion that a system of Imperial trade preference between Grout
Britain and Ireland and tho Colonies
would greatly stimulate increased
production in and commerce between
these two countries, nnd would thus
promote nnd maintain the unity of tbe
Empire and that nothing Whioh falls
short of the complete rcali/.ntion of
such 11 policy should be considered final
or satisfactory."
Fielding, iu reply, said Hint while
Canada hud not preference ou the slat
nte books of Great Britain, still we
got It in the hearts of tho people, nnd
the trade returns showed that this was
the case. The way whicli Foster suggested in dealing with this question
wus not practical, Canada fonnd, but
that it was not either the pioper way
to deal with Biitnin, seeing how
much she had done for Canada in the
past. The Government cculd stand
the jeers of the Opposition on the
question which Her Majesty the
Queen thought so important ns to re-
ter to in her speech from the throne in
the Imperial Parliament, and also received approbation of the picas of the
Empire.    (Cheers).

Iu Oroat Britain, whioh is the boat
governed country in tho world, minors may hnvo an eight-hour day, or
an eighteou-hour day, or a four-hour
day, or a duy of any length tbey may
cbonso to demuiid that is not clearly
opposed to tho general public interest,
if a short day, they are expectd to
acoept a corresponding wnge. The
pnblio sense of justice deinnuris this,
and tho good amso of the workmen
concede it. But Parliament will not
permit nny cluss of artisans, miners or
others, to carry legislation that will
make it illegal to confine themselves
to uny number of hours. They may
have a standard of oight hours, if tboy
wish, and engagements and wages may
bo arrauged on that basis; but if by
arrangement with employers they de-
Biro to work longor boors or shorter
hours it is their privilege to do so.
This privilege they stipulate for themselves, and Parliament insists thnt
they shall not be deprived of it. More
than once meddlers and agitators
have attempted to induce Parliament
to make a hard and fast day, but have
always failed ; the workmen hnvo been
protected in the privilege to contrnot
themselvjs out of any limit thnt may
be prescribed.
In British Columbia miners are
snbjcted to a speoies of bondage. A
day of eight hours has been laid
down, aud to work in excess of these
exposes both employer and employed
to serious pains and penalties. The
miner may prefer to make an arrangement with the mine owner for a longer day and better pay, bnt the law
steps in and says thnt he must not.
Every man in British Colnmbiu who
works underground for hire in n metalliferous mine is a slave, in the sonse
that ho has his personal liberty abridged.    They are not free men.
A man may work auy number of
Bonn for himself. Fortuuntely for the
reputation of the Province, they are
not deprived of thia privilege. Through
it there ia an escape from the slavery
of the law. Instead of working by tho
tlay for another, a man may take a
contract. Under contract, he may
work longer hours if he pleases, ns he
geuornlly does, and he can earn more
money. Over iu Rossland tho large
mines have been closed down. They
are now or soou will be ready to be
reopened, but the owners aro understood to require that the men shall ao-
cept tho recognised eight-hour wage.
Failing this, they prefer to let the
work by contract; indeed, they have
already taken steps to apportion tho
work in ibis manner. The men are
willing to accept contracts, but tbe
professional labor leaders, who see
danger to their occupation if this system should be generally adopted, have
entered a prohibition. The machinery
of the Unions has been put in motion
to prevent tho men from earning better wageB at contraot work, pending a
dual decision at headquarters. Two
or three mon sitting in judgment at
Butte, Montana, have the power to decide whether citizens of British Columbia Bhnll hnve the liberty to work on
thn conditions thut host please themselves. Au agent of tbe Unions has
been dispatched to Butte to lay the
matter before our foreign masters,
and on them depends whether mining
in this Province shall be resumed.
Whot with tbe slavery of the law and
the slavery of the Unions, the miners
of British Columbia hnve come to a
strnngo pass. If tbey had the spirit of
free men they would not submi t to
either a single day.
Apropos of that reroonsttnnoeof rosl
dent laborers, it may bo instructive to
mention that when the Unions inn
those "Illinois" down from Rosebery
to Nelson a month or two ago, Mr.
Houston, to help tho Unions out, put
a number of tliom t�� work on tho City
streets. He thus used his powor nnd
abused his position us Mayor to take
part in the struggle between the Unions and the miuo owners. Ho did
not scruple to make our civio Interests
an agency for the support of tiie Un
ions in a controversy with whicli the
corporation us such shnu.'d on no nr
count have been allowed to nicddlo.and
least of all meddle in favor of tho side
that was responsible for almost complete stagnation in the mining industry. The man who would do this
would stuff' u voters' list with names
of transients who have no settled
We believe Aid. Irvine oorroctly interprets the popular seutiment when
he says the citizens are not in favor of
expending auy more money ou the
electric light plnut. This hns boon a bad
business from the beginning. But
little else could ho expected of nn enterprise that was founded in corruption. If the City oan dispose of it for
half the sum mentioned by tho Mayor
at the Inst Couuoil meeting, it will he
well rid of a bad bnrgain.
It is quite possible, ub the Mayor
snys, that be is pestered with applications for work nnd flint his hair is
turning grey with worry ; bnt tbat is
no answer to Ihe remonstrance mado
to tho Council on Monday night, in
behalf of resident laborers, hy Mr.
Monroe, Mr. Kelly, Mr. Hortou and
others. They compluined that transients were being employed to the prejudice of residents. To soy that bo
lias from five to fifty applications overy
day is no answer to this complaint.
He mny have a million; when he
beggod tho people to oleot him Mayor
It was his businoss lo consider tbe
worry, and if not prepared to face it
ho could retire. Now that he is elected he must take the bitter with the
sweet. And when suoh n question as
this is raised ho is expected to give a
straightforward explnnntion. If thn
complaint is true, it is desirable that
the oiti/.ons should know it. There
is a suspicion thai ho is employing
transients in view of the next revision
of the voters' list. Mr. Houston expects to bo a candidate, and he iB looking forwnrd to stuffing tho lists.
Hence his eagerness to employ transients over tho heads of residents. It
would be fraudulent, of course, lint
Mr. Houston is not fho man to stick nt
fraud if it stands in the way of his
pinna and ambitions. A vote thnt
counts is what ho wants, novel mind
how it is obtained,
This is how it is put iu Mr. lions
ton's paper: "Tho Miner Publishing
Company wrote, applying for City job
work." Tho Miner wrote to ask for n
share of the i,)b work. It will be pos
sible, wo think, to see the distinction
It wrote because Mr. Houston is cor
railing it all. No doubt tho hope of
bolstering up bis printing office with
City patronage was one of the principal reasons for becoming a candidate,
hut it is no reason at all why he should
have the whole of it. If Mr. Houston's paper were not such a fool, it
would say a good doal less than it
Tbe Council did an eminently sensible thing on Monday night when it
refused to sanction the expenditure
of *8,000 or 10,000 on the wharf during
the preseut year. It wns A Id. Irvine who
suggested repairing instead of rebuilding, but for some reason ho did not
support his opinion with his vote.
However, there wus a mujority in favor of it, and thus the City will he
spared a large expenditure this year for
an improvement that can well afford
to wait.

Sir Wilfrid Lander's Bpseol ou tbe 11
0. Political Situation.
The Hansard report of Premier l.anr-
ii-r's reply to Col, Prior's Interpellation in reference to tho dismissal of
the Semliu Government nnd the projection of Mr. Martin into the center of the ring|will   be interesting:
The Priinti Minister (Sir Wilfrid
Lantldr). Mr. Speaker, I must oon-
fess to my bon. friend flint 1 do nor. at
all appreciate at this moment the motive which hns induced him to prion
this matter to the attention of tbe
Honse or of the Government. The
question which exists in llriiish Co-
In in Iiiu today is crlainly a very serious oue, lint my lion, friend knows
that it is not au unconstitutional oue.
It is today in the hanrlN of the people
of British Colombia. The Lieutenant
Governor has acted within the precincts of his power. Whether he hns
acted wisely or not is a question
which is submitted, not to this Government, nut to this Parliament, hut
to tho  people  ot  British Columbia,
The Lioutoniiut-Oovoiuor, in the exercise of his authority, lias taken a
very serious step, I must admit, and
one which I presume he has not taken
except after due aud serious reflection.
He has taken the steo of dismissing
his responsible advisers, who, it may
lie claimed in one sense, I hough they
bad beeu defeated on thu previous
day, bad still the confidence of the
House , bnt be has found advisers ready
and willing to take the responsibility
of bis action. Now, it has been determined more than once, and the question
is no louger iu dispute,that under such
nlroomstanoes the remody is in the
hands of the people themselves. It is
for tbe people of tho Province of British Columhia to declare whether
tbey approve or disapprove of tho action of tbe Lieutenant-Governor. I
apprehend that under such circumstances as those which exist in British Colombia today, it is the duty of
thu Lieutenant-Governor, at an early
date, to dissolve the Home, uud to
snmmon the electors ut the polls and
submit to them with as little delay as
possible the question whioh he has
himself, by his conduct, placed before
them. It is not, in my judgment,
within the duty of the Dominion Government nt this moment to interfere.
Wo may have our views ou tho action of thn Lieutunaut-Governor.
The lion, gentleman says that he has
acted unwisely. At this moment it
would not ho prudent nor ad\ isable for
me oven to offer my own personal
opinion on the matter; I should not
say a single word to prejudge the
question. We may have our views, 1
say, as to the advisability of the conduct of the Lieutenant-Governor and
as to tbe method in whioh be has proceeded ; bnt all this is in the hands of
the people of the Province. If thay
approve of the action of the Lieutenant
Governor, in my judgment, that is an
end of the question. If they disapprove of it by returning to the House
of AsSombly 11 majority opposed to the
present Government, it is obvious that
the Lieutenant-Governor will he found
to have taken a very serions step. But
until thn peopln have pronounced on
the matter. I submit very respootfnlly
to tbe judgment of the House that it
is not foi this Parliament, nnd still
less for tbis Government to offer any
opinion as to what has taken plaoe iu
British Columbia. On two previous
occasions in this Dominion Lieutenant-Governors have dismissed their
advisers���Mr. Letcllior, in 1878, and
Mr. Angers, in ISM. In the case of
Mr. Aognrs the matter was not at all
brongbt to the ntteution of this Parliament. In the case of Mr. Letellier,
the matter was brought to the attention of this Government, and the Government took a certain action which
was not, in my opinion, justified by
tho event. The opinion has prevailed
iu all those cases thut when the Province is blessed with representative institutions aud has responsible Government, tho remedy must be held to rest
primarily aud finally in the hnnds of
the  peoplo of the Piovince themselves.
Const   Conservatives Can't   Make  Up
Their Minds About Party Politics.
Victoria, B. 0., March 20.���Conservatives at their meeting tonight talked
for three hours on the question of
party lines bnt arrived at no deoisioo,

There Is some talk iu Victoria of calling a monster mass meeting to denounce the action of the Governor in
permitting Martin to bold office witb

other districts throughout theProviuoe
