A stiuadron of Dundoniild's men espied

Mr. Churchill, "and the Imperial

thought with delight of my poor
friends, the prisoners at Pretoria,
This might redeem  n  few.    Then   wo
searched the ground, finding len dead
oi dying and twenty loose horses, ten
dend nnd eight badly wounded men.
Tho soldiers crowded around these
lust, covering them up with blankets
or mackintoshes, propping their heads
With saddles for pillows, and giving
thnin water and biscuits from their
bottles and haversacks. Anger hud
turned to pence in an instant; the desire to kill was gono, the desire to
comfort replaced it. A little, tilert ofli-
cer came up to me. Two minutes before his eyes were bright and joyous
with the excitement of tho mnn hunt.
He had galloped a mile mostly under
fire to bring the reinforcements to surround tho Boers. 'Bag the lot, you
know.' He wub vory sad. 'There's a
poor boy dying up there, only a hoy.
and so cold ; whose got a blanket?' So
the soldiers covered the Boer wounded
and wo told the piisouers that they
would be shown couriesy and kindness
woithy of brave men and a famous
quarrel. The Boer dead were collect-
id and a Hag of truce was sent to the
enemy's line to invito a burying und
identification party at dawn. I have
often seen men killed in war, thousands nt Cmdnrmnn, scores elsewhere,
black nnd white, bnt the Boer dead
aroused the most painful sympathy.
Hore by tho rock under which he had
(ought lay tho Field Cornet of Heil
hroon, Mr. Dements, a gray haired
man of line appearance and a short
beard. A prisoner told mo that Dements had refused all suggestions of
surrendering, that when  his left leg
was smashed by a bullet ho had continued to loud and lire until hn bled to
death and there he was found pale
md bloodless, holding his wife's letter
in his hnud. It could not be denied
that the cavaliy had scored a brilliant success, had captured _4, killed
10, and wounded eight, n total of 42.
Moreover we hud seen the retreating
Boers dragging nud supporting their
injured frieuds from tho field and

London, March 8.���Witli the triumph of British arms, the talk of continental interference has passed in
seclusion and there comes a now supposition teguidiug the nttitudo of
American Congress towards Greal
Britain, the possibility of its recommending intervention, voting sympathy with the Boers, refusing to rat-
fy the Nicaragua treaty, and last but
hielly refusing to cousidor the Gonad-
ian contentions in u spirit of friendliness. Tho great publio interest in all
this is mainly the result of many spec-
ml cable dispatches from Knglish cor
respondents statiug tbe Administration
board severely attacked for alleged
friendliness towards Grent Britain
and in viuw of the coming olection,
might be forced to make some sort of
an anti-British demonstration in order
to otl'set such   accusations   ��s   that  of

Regarding Lord Salisbury's point of
view, the Associated Press is able to
say that for some lime past ho bus
heen taking little interest in Amur-
can politics nnd that ho is averse lo
any form of an Anglo-American it 11 i-
uncn believing thut the constitution of
iii. I !..'��� .1 Slates is unsuitetl to such
a bund. To nse thu words of one who
is in thn closest confidence of the
Premier tlm politics of the United
States have such an inlluenoo on foreign pulley and render thn duiiition of
supreme power so uneettniii that any
allianoe would kill itself quicker than
any one could kill  it."
He feels under Ilo Obligation to Fns

United Suites. In fact, for the most
part, ho remains in profound ignnr
mice ns to the trend nl American public opinion. His idea, ns represented
by tho spoakor just ([noted, is to evade
fairly and squarely without oinbroiling
himself wiih any extraneous matter,
nor does hn desire to sacrifice the
good of the whole Empire for Ihn sake
of Canada alone,   The bom of Lord

(Sl*|..i:lAI,S TO THE MINER.)
Montreal, March !!.���Tho Star's London correspondent cables: The Standard correspondent says that the Canadians at Paardeberg on Tuesday advanced in two long liuoa, iu front rank
With fixed bayonets und rear rank with
thoir rifles slung and carrying picks
aud spades to dij> trenches under cover
of darkness. Tho Canadians advanced
a quarter of a mile in dead silenoe and
then halted, the order heing sent
along the ranks by each man pressing
the hand of his neighbor. It is believed that the trenches wore actually being dug when the men were ordered to
advance nnother live paces. A fearful
fusiludo at once broke ont irom the
Boer Hues. The Canadians threw
themselves on their faces and made no
attempt to return the firo." Three minutes later, under orders, they returned
to their original position, rapidly
and silently, no shot being fired.
The Boers were unable to place their
eueiny. But for the great intensity
of the enemy's fire the Canadians
would have entered the Boor trenchos.
As it wns, .thoy combined splendid
gallantry with implicit obedience.
Boers iiinied too high to do mnoh
damage, hut that does not lessen the
credit due our mon for their great
self control." Tho Times correspond
ontsnjs: "Groat credit is due the
Oanafl : as in thnt, despite the hottest
lire, there wns no nnswerlug rifle firo.
The whole camp rejoices that onr
oldest colony wiped out the stain of
Majubii. Lord Koberts oxpressod his
pleasure iu the strongest terms."
The Mail and Telegraph correspondents confirm the magnificent coolness
of the Canadians' behuvour.

London, |Mnroh 11. ���('_:87 p.m.)���
President Krnger is said to have left
Pretoria with the intention of meeting
President Steyn. Tho place when!
they will meet is not mentioned, but
la bolieved to be somowhere in tho
Freo State. Those in South Africa
who aro conversant with the recent
reverses of tho Boers express the opinion that the meeting of the two Presidents ia preliminary to a suggestion
of negotiations for peace, but if this is
the onse it must be due to the pressure
brought to bear upon tho Presidents
by the Burghers and Afrikanders in
the British Colonies rnther than to the
personal inclinations of tho two presidents.

London, March 4. ���(4 :I0 a. m.)���It
is evident that a strict censorship is
being exercisid over tho news of the
war us the night has added nothing to
tho scanty dispatches received during
thu day. Tho War Ollloo intimated at
midnight that them wero no prospects
uf news until something .I.'liuit.. shull
have been done. This is quito in
keeping with thu ooraploto silence
which Lord Koberts has hitherto observed while his plans wero iu j regress of accomplishment uud until be
is iu actual grip with thu Boeis it is
probable thut the public will hoar little or nothing of his doings.
i  ,m hi... a un i..... 11. !'...������.
London, Maroh a.���Mr. Spencer Wil-
inson,reviewing tho wnr Situation for
the Assouiatcd Press at midnight.says:
Tho viotories .of Tuesday have put
the campaign straight. From tho
British point ot viow the important
pointl Were the defeat of Oronjn and
tho destruction of part ol his force
and tho defeat of the Buer army iu Natal, bntli ol which were effected un
Tuesday.
The relief uf tho boseiged town foi-
lowed as a matter of faot upon the retreating forces. Thn raising of tho
���fllge of Ladysmith was, of course, a
vital matter for the British army, it
is lhe result of   tlunoral   Bullei's con
tinuous fighting coupled witb Lord
Roberts' invasion of the Free Stnte.
Gonernl Buller sooinB to jhave hem
surprised to find he hnd beaten tin*
Boers so badly Tuesday. Nothing is
coinuiinor in war than for an army
after hard fighting to bo doubtful of
the extent of its success. Few eeuernla
learn as Grant did, in his first oom-
iiiiind, "that the enemy was ns much
frightened ot. mo ns I was of him."
The question now is as to the future
course of events. There cannot be
much doubt ns to the issue, providing
no foreign power or  powers interfere.
Lord Koberts can order General Buller with his 40,000 men, of the nov?
united Natal army, to advance on
Pretoria, while he himself moves by
Bloetnfontoiu uud the Free State.
The position seems to be that there
aie 0,000 or 7,000 Boers within stiik-
ing distance of Koberts nt Osfontein.
If that is the case he will either disperse or capture tho small Boer force
unless it retreats rapidly until reinforced. The invasion of Cape Colony
hns broken down and we may shortly
hear from the British. They have recovered the passngos of the Orange
River.
Mafeking mny find tho next two
or three weeks a hnrd time as a
part of Cronje's Boers seem to have
retreated northward and some of them
may swell tho beseiging force, but
Lord Roberts will probably contrive to
push forward a small farce on the
Mafeking line nnd raise the seige
while he is drawing the principal Boer
army to himself.

France Anxious to Be Friendly With the United
States.
(BY ASSOCIATED PRESS.)
Paris, March 8.���Franco withont a
doubt.is sincerely anxious for the bund
grip of friendship of the United States
nnd uot only is this tine of the Government bnt of all responsible French
politicians as well. The presentation
of the Liifnyetto rlollur to President
Lonbet today furnished another nn-
mistakeable proof of tbe existence of
this feeling. References to the event
of tho French journals of all political
shades have been invariably^ of the
most sympathetic character and the
oeremouy itself is treated as if destined to prove another link in the historic
friendship of tho two nations. President Loubet, himself, tho correspondent of the Associated Press has been
iuformed by one entitled to speak, is
obaimed with the whole atlair and
the maimer in which it wns carried
ont. Prior to the ceremony bo privately expiessed these sentiments uud
also his sense that the way the scheme
had beeu taken up is an indication ot
the attitude of the great body of American opinion toward France. Another
expression of the feeling iu the nllicial
world has appeared in the government
mouthpiece, which after reviewing the
inception and execution of the idea.
concluded: "All these demonstrations
for-.u a veritable cult consecrated by
the Amerionns to the illustrous cousin
who aided them to win their independence, which does the greatest honor to
tho people of tho United States nnd
deeply touches tho French people. If
there nre in the world two peoples
mnde to love nud comprehend one another, it is surely those of tho two
greatest Republics who exist on the
face of the globe. "
The exquisite workmanship of the
casket, in whioh the Lafayette dollar
was preseuted, formed an ohjeot of especial admiration from all the French
who exnmiued it.
The United Stntes auxiliary crniser
Prairie reoeived a very cordial reception nn her arrival at Rouen and a
movement is now on foot, headed by
tho Chamber of Commerce of Paris, to

lnlluenza is now the popular complaint in Paris. President Loubet,
Cardinal Hinhard and the Marquis tie
Gallifot, Minister of War, are among
tbo suffereis, tho latter at one time
boing in n serious condition, but is
now recovering. A 'jure fur iuliuonzit
formed a topic for discussion nt tha

that uo specific cure exists. New fun-

In a simple curative treatment, such

There has boen considerable talk of

MR. MARTIN'S LEADING PLAFK.
Until it is knuwu thut Mr. Mnrtin
can achieve the tusk he hus undertaken, it wonld perhaps be idle to discuss
the platform which be has constructed
and on which his liovernment is to
take its stand. There are vain and cou-
ceited men, however, to be found in
every community,and nt twithstanding
tho teirible disoooinginent of that notion uf the House uu Thursday it is
possible that a full Cabinet can ho
mustered. It is Uetter to bo a Minis
tor for 11 day than not to be n Minister
lit all, ami from the names ��� ������ far mentioned we should judge that the pres
ont is the only opportunity, for no one
else is ever likely to call upon them.
Improbable, therefore, us it may seem,
'ere is the possibility thut Mr. Mar-
may enlist his Falstafflan guard, In
ich   case it will be his   privilege to

one it was. But it failed lo cure him
of the infatuation, anil to be associat
od us n principal In schemes of the
kind has been the most cherished wish
of his life. In Manitoba he tried His
hand as Minister in dealiuK with rail
way companies, but although liberal In
Iii-. concessions uuil ounning iu mukiiiK
conditions Ihat seemed to promise
plensunt things for himself, the companies in the end left bim in the
lurch. They wore more onnniug thun
himself, and being equally unscrupulous they had no difficulty in effecting
n retreat and taking all the spoils with
them.
Mr. Martin hopes to bu Premier'of a
Government in Hritish Columbia, and
having naturally grown suspicious of
OOUipanlei he resolves to make his next
veutnro, ns u great railway mimipulu
tor, in the safer character of absolutt
director and controller. "The Govern
mout," ho snys, "intend to adopt the
principle of Government ownership
of railways." Nu mure companies fur
Mr. Martin; Ihey are too elusive. But
n railway ownod by the Province and
built by n Governmenl of which Mr.
Martin is undisputed muster is rich iu
opportunities. Therefore ho Intends to
give an Government railways as fast
nnd as often as we want them.   Une is
to bo constructed from the ('nasi to tbe
Kootenay with a bung. It will be
built with public money for tho benefit
of the public, uml accomodation and
mtes will be arranged to tbe complete
satisfaction of every Individual.   Mr,
Jack I'nve's seven halfpenny lnavos for
a penny, and   tlnce lumped   pots   with
ten boons, |iale Into Insignlflosnoe in
comparison with tbe benefits Mr. Martin will shower npon Ihn |��.oplo of
British Colombia, mice hit is given the
Opportunity tu build iis railways. Nol
11 mine in the country but will hnve
(inn built right up tu tin. skull's
month, Thut tbey can ever earn dividends is 11 trifle that   dues nut COHOSH)
Mr. Mnrtin. ii is perhaps considered
unnecessary that a dividend should be
earned. They nre built Willi public
money foi the public,  uml why   bother
about such a wretched little matter ns
that ?    Indeed, for   thut   matter, why
should there be mtes at all? ffe ib. not
say that Mr. Marl in is prepared to go
this length,   which wonld be   a   great
ndvanoe ou thu ten boons, lmt if he is
tu adopt lh.. principle ul nil lui may ns
well curry it to the full limit Others.
cerlninly, mny   object thai we run get
our freo Ireight lutes more ol ply und
directly by   some   other   UlOthod,    let
tho oompanies bnlld th..  railways, as
now, and lei the (luvcrnnienl pay unr
freight bills     Tlmt would   be   uu im-
pruvenieni uu Mt. Martin'i Btnte-boilt
and State-managed railways, fur it is
not mure certain thul the sun shines
und the rain fulls I Imn Hint they would
liecoino sinks of corruption.
Tho Vancouver Province thinks tbat
those who   were,   anxious   to  see*   the
Lieutenant-Governor mnke abort work
of    tho   Bemlin    Administration  are
estopped from   finding fault with  bis
final  notion in  tho   premises,   "sinoe
thut quite logically   fits  iu   with  tbe
contention that it was his duty to personally intervene in tbe   ftlst   place."
That is precisely it; it was his duty to
intervene  in the first plaoe.    Had  he
done this, with sole regard to tbe publio interest, there would not be a mnr-
mur   today.    Mr.   Senilin'e majority
was never very large. During recess it
Buffered  two defeotlone,  and in bis
own correspondeuco with tho  Premier
thu Governor admits that these  raised
doubts in his mind ns to Mr.   Semlin's
control of the House.    Tbe Honse met,
and iu tbe  first  division  the Government was iu a minority.    It  was then
the 11 uvc 1 nm should have taken notion.
Bui he allowed   Mr. Semlin to go  on,
knowing well that   he  did  not  have
ell'eclivc control  and   was nimble   to
direct legislation as ho ought.    Whether intended or   not,   the Promier  was
encouraged to believe that if be  could
patch up a majority   be would be permitted   to  go on to the end of the session.    Under   the  circumstances   Mr.
Semlin's  dismissal  was an  arbitrary
exercise af  authority.   But  that was
not the  worst  of  it.    The   Governor
theu sent for a  man  who  has no following either iu tbo  Honse  or in  tbe
country,   and   tho   ciromustances  all
poiut to the conclusion that he did this
in pursuance of a prearranged plan  to
tiring in a cliquo of his own.    No person    in  all   this    broad   Province is
estopped   from  finding fault  with bis
final notion iu the premises.

Onr correspondent ut Victoria says
that His Honor, incensed at the treatment of tho Honse tbe other day, may
cull thn special session of tbe Legislature to sit at Vancouver. So may bo
call spirits from the vasty deep, but
tbut does not say the spirits will
come. A Lieutenant-Governor Is an
exnlted and sacred person, no doubt,
but ho cannot always do us he pl.<asos.
He has no right to call the Legislature for Vancouver, and should be
commit such an extreme folly we maybe sure tho members woold refus_ to
obey thn summons. If tbey did not
Ihey would deserve to be whipped all

HOMEMADE SCALES.
A Pnir That Can Be Made Vanity
With NlrliiK and Cardbuard.
Some of our boys nre always wanting
to do things thut cull for the exercise of
Ingenuity and hnve n priicticul result,
and we are goinu to tell them of some*
thing of thnt kind now, miyu the Philadelphia Times. The proposition iH some*
whnt startling, hut is susceptible of
ready demonstration. We are going to
make a good pull- of scales out of thread
���r twine.
Drive two stout nails about 24 inches
apart into the etlge of n horizontal shelf.
Tit. to the nulls the two otitis of a
thread, say 3 feet 0 Inches in length, iu
the exact middle of which you have
made a large knot.
Out from cardboard two square pieces
to serro as pans und suspend them
from the principal threat" by four other
THgT WILL WHICH ACCDRATELT.
threads. They Bhotild be suspended one
���u each side of antl about six inches dtfl*
tant from the knot in the center, and
their weight will mnke the middle part
of the principal thread assume a hoii-
aental position.
Behind the centrnl part of the thread
place a piece of cardboard and mark
with an arrow the place where the knot
la when the two pans are ot rest. Now
put any article you choose, n dressed
chicken, for example, ns the scales arc
for household purposes, into one of the
pans, and, of course, you will disturb
the equilibrium, the centrnl part of the
thread assuming a more or less oblique
position. The knot, therefore, r*iJI no
longer hang in front of the arrow, which
serves as your guide ninrk.
To bring the knot back to its place in
the center you must put weights iu the
empty pan, and when you have thus
established a balance the total of thu
weights will give you the weight of the
chicken.
In making this homely balance you
ahould be guided by tne probable size of
the article to be weighed, using thread,
twine or rope, ns mny be required. It
may be depended upon to give us accurate service as any scales tbut are sold
In tbe stores.
CURTAIN" rUlSEF.9, '.'
N. C. r.oolwtn's tienson at the Duke of
York's theater, Lomdua. haa been resumed.
Sir Henry Inrlng received the honorary
degree of doctor of laws from the University of t/llusgow.
"The Itclle of New York" has celebrated iis live hundredth performance at the
Shaftesbury theatre, London.
There is ia contemplation a burlesque
on "Hamlet" to be produced at the New
Vork theater some time this winter.
Helnrich Zoelluer's opera, "The Sunken Bell," bused upon Huuptmanu's play
of that name, will be produced rn New
Vork this season, according to report.
Mary Muuucriug, star of the Lyceum
company, is to assume the leading role
in "The Maneuvers of Jane," which is
Daniel Fiuhuiaa's opening play for tha
Benson.
Frederick Warde will revive this Benson Henry (luy Curleton's powerful play,
"The Lion's Mouth." Charles D. Herman will bo seen in hi* original role,
Friar Angela.
Alice Neilsea has sailed from San
Francisco on the steamship Vucatun for
the Sandwich Islands. She will spend a
nionlh in Honolulu und Walkiki and then
return to (his country, going direct to
New Vork to rehearse her new opera.

A LA MODE.
Naming Cartoons.
An amusing game for the pastime of
either old or young can be made from
tha funny pictures and small cartoons np-
pearlag In the newspapers nud weeklies.
Cut out the funniest ones, the titles to
which have a double meaning, and paste
the titles cut from each picture upon
separate tags. When you have, say, two
dozen or more of such pictures, spread
them on a table beforo the players.
shuffle the tags with the various titles
to the pictures and distribute an even
number of them to all playing, The
player who uses up his togs first, giving the names to the proper pictures, Is
the winner. This may seem an easy
thing to do, but the queer names nre
misleading nnd seem suitable to other
pictures before the comic ideas of Ihe
pictures are understood. Simpler pictures
may ba selected for younger players.
But ths game is certain to be accompanied by hard thinking and laughable
mistakes, besides developing skill in giving names to pictures.
The little i.vrcou de cafe and Eton
jackets continue to nppear among prevailing mul much fuvored French modes.
One button English walking jackets
will be much used for stout figures this
season, and as they are very closely fitted, they will add nothing to the apparent size.
Silk machine Btltchlng appears as a
finish on inaay of the lateat French nnd
English tailor models for autumn wear.
It takes the place of all other simple
decorative effects, rows of braid or silk
gimp not excepted.
There is now a tailor made pelerine. It
is very simple except at the neck, where
it is heaped wilb luce, silk muslin ruches,
accordion pluitings, siugle, double nnd
triple, with broad ribbon bows or cboux
fastened here antl there.
Tho round waist, which has had such
an undisturbed reign for many seasons
past, will lake a place in the background
or fashion this Benson, and its place will
bo largely taken by the smart short jacket models, of which there ia uo end this
full.
Sonic of tbe fashionable modistes aro
making pretty shirt waista to replace
those of the summer season. A large portion of them nre of cream white albatross, cashmere, mohnir and similar soft
wools, the style* repeating those worn nil
summer.
There is still n great denl of rumor
nnd discussion about the shortening of
dress skirts for general wear, but notwithstanding the fact that many high
class tailors nnd modistes are making
walking skirts for the autumn consider-
ably shorter than those which have been
universally worn dnring the summer, the
ilenii trained or "dip" skirt Is likely to
flourish attain on both aides of the water.

2H seconds before the eoho died away
over the crest of the hills. A little
Inter ',hey found ont that the long blast
had been caused by the accidental explosion of 60 ixiunds of dynamite that
had heen put in a heater to thaw.
Fortunately there was no one neur it
when it exploded.
Somo lif_ht has heen spread upon tho
mysterious disappearance of Mr. H.
H. Bowden. Mr. Bowdcn became lost
to his friends only about a week ago.
It was not known where he wont to or
why he went, and most diligent inquiry everywhere failed to reveal his
whereabouts. It now transpires thnt
ho had an object in going, and did not
_andcr away in n state of absent-
mindedness. Prom information received by The Miner it would appear that
the former Nelsouito tcok with him
several dollars to which he was uot
rightfully entitled. Iu this anionut
'here is said to havo been a check for
5700 made out to a Piovinoial oflicer
'or bearer." Mr. Bowden waB the
hearer aud he is said to have stopped
it the bank and cashed the checg.
This was uot known until the oftioinl
111 question enquired for the cheok.
An investigation followed and the cancelled cheok was found in the bank.
Tho teller said that Mr, Bowden had
cashed it. In the meantime, however, Mr. Bowden bad disappeared. So
far ns known, none of his friends hnve
haard from him since his disappearance, but it is supposed that ba hus
gone to the United States.

anil when u phrticulurly ditlieult piece
of track wus iiiiountei-ed some oi the
curs left lbe rails. The engine went
through nil right, and stayed on tbo

ns they were rolled off. The sleepers
Nestona nnil Brandon wero overturned in tbe ditoh beside tile truck while
the buffet wus ulso derailed, ThG latter couch wiih set np again without
great dilliculty.

Meanwhile everything possible was
being done to set matters right at the
sc.no of tho acoident.
When the train left the truck the
sleepeis wore fairly well tilled with
passengers, including a number of
Members ol'Pailiament who were on
their wny to spend Sumluy at home.
The excitement wus intense, and n
panic could scarcely be avoided when
ono of the sleepers caught lire. The
oooupnnts were brought out safely,
however, nutl those who were unhurt

Rossland, March y.���The week has

little change in the mining situation.
The arrival of sonio _7 Slavonians
early iu the week caused a good deal
of excitement among tbo miners. All
but two of the party have since lett

the meu hero. They appear to have

The programme fixed for the Reichstag is as follows: Thursday is fixed
for tho second reading of the meat
bill, then   the currency   bill   and   the
Hniii reading of the Loxheine,  against
which them is strong opposition by
ortists uud writers. Later there will
b. tbe (innl rending of the meat bill
uuil some other measures of less importance, thus oarrying the sessiou to
Easter adjournment, To curry the
meat bill to the right sitlo, the Centre
will summon all its defaulting members during the ooming week to the
Reichstag.
Tho National Zeitnng, speaking
about thn meat bill today, expresses
the belief that the Government will
not approve the bill ns it now stands,
uud thut the hands lire tied up regarding coining oommerolal treuties, not
only with the United Status lmt nisei
with Russia, Scandinavia and Holland. It says a general tariff wur
would be the result of tho bill becoming law, nil to appease the insntiablc
Agrarians. The totul provision of
moat imports after the new year of
1904 would be tantamount to a meat
usury. The Prussian Diet this
week considered the railway budget.
It wiib plainly shown that tbo Prussian
state railway is fearfully behind in
comfort  and   unurovrneiits.
The South African war oontinnes to
hold tho attention of the public here.
While sympathy for tbo Boors continues, respect for the British has risen
tin'' . tbsir latest successes. But Gen-
en. Ij.sober in tho Lnknl Aneiger todny snys the well planned action of
Lord Huberts hns brought about n total change nt the seat of wur, a
change such as laymen would not have
thought possible.
The writer concludes: "Wai for the
Boeis is now a hopeless struggle, foi
they lack that which alone could have
given their victories u permanent
value, that is to soy the capacity of
fructifying victory by pursuing the enemy to the point of annihilation."
Piiuco Henry, of Prussia, intends
pnyiug a visit to Queen Victoria,
his grandmother, in Engand, but before doing so he will stay with his
family at Kreusnmcli antl drink the
waters. Persons who have had occa
sion lately to converse with Prince
Hohenlohe describe him as being extremely feeble even to the oxtent of
senility. Viscount Gough, Beoretary
of the British Emhns-y, iuforms the
Associated Press thnt tho Embassy-
knows nothing about Emperor William having sent cougtatulutioiis to
the Qu.en on the cccusiou of the latest
victory. This is confirmed in court
circles here. Former Lieutenant
Meighs, of the Bethlehem Iron Works,
has arrived at the Savoy Hotel. He
will travel ill Germany and Slsewbere
in search of Information.

Associated Press learus, was not solely
due as generally understood to diplomatic reasons but chielly on account of
official considerations which personally
affected Lord Puuncefoto. It is now
nndiTfitood that Lord Puuncefoto desires to stay in Washington. There
nre others in the service whose promotion is unusually slow waiting to
take his shoes nnd it would bo bnd
precedent to extend the term still longer. Thnt is the ollioiul view of it, yet
it is possible,though scarcely probable,
that if Lord Salisbury is convinced
that British interests now include so
many unsettled controversies with the
United States would Buffer he might
within this month ask Lord Pauncefote to remain,    lu   faot   it wns   only
ihioiigh Inquiry made by correspondents nt the Foreign Ollice that the nf-
tenton of offlolals of the department
were drawn to many  nitioics dealing
with   the   subject.    Hut   while   Lord
Salisbury und ibe Foreign Office confine
themselves lo the braad issues at
stake, and marvel at the amount of
questions, attributing to tbetn a desire
to form an American allianoe when
the private oplnioj of the whole department incline to the idea that sentiment has a very   doubtful   vnlno   iu
International   relations, tin. Colonial
Ollice busies itself with minute considerations, apparently conforming its
opinions nnd actions to meeting in behalf of Canada, the political feeling
in the United Stntes ns  cabled   by the
English    correspondents.   Thus   Mr.
Chamberlain several times hull protested against projected agreements with
the United Stntes and hns for some
time prevailed, At present there pre*
vades the Colonial Offloe an ovor-
wnolmning dread ot Americnn complications while there nre hopes of getting Ihe Alaskan nud other disputes
settled. The low ebb of Ihis feeling is
not shared in the slighted by tho Foreign Ollice. Mr. Chamberlain also
exhiliilH some painful anxiety to keep
in touch with the   party   in   power in
Canada, Tin. Intesl Instance, viz., iu
bis oable to Australia asking if. ihey
could raise 2,500 Iroops. As published
hero, the report suitl: " d, tbe event
of Imperial troops being needed," and
several papers Interpreted it to mean
tbut the Government feared European
hostility. Bul it is learned that Mr.
Chamberlain merely asked for troops,
neither mentioning nor thinking of
nny such contingency as conveyed by
the erronoOSly reported addition to the
request. It wns originally intended
thnt the troops should come from Cnnndn, perhaps augmented by iiiaiiy Britishers from tbe United States.
Another view which seems to be taken by the Colonial Ollice nutl the writers of press in closo touch with tlm department, is that since Canada shed
blond tot the cause of Great. Britain,
Canada's various contentions with the
United States must   be   considered   as
transcontinental, In other words to
halo the wnr heroes in behalf of the
Empire, Tim considerations which
formerly Influenced    Lord   Salisbury
in dealing with Canadian-American
matters must now be saorifloed. Regarding the Nienrugiiun canal, no
diplomatic     communications     have
passed between Washington   nnil Lou
don nnd the matter stiinds  just   as   it
wns when Great   Britain   consented to
the modification of   the   Cluytoii-Biil-
wer trjnty.   Tim British Government
has uot considered any measures to be
tnken should Congress reject or modify
tho Hny-Pauncefote conference, such
as conditions governing Great Britain's official attitude towards the United States as they exist todny.
