The scenes and incidents along

little from another Derby day, but
the introduction of Union Jacks and
banners inscribed "Johannesburg,''

the weather was not promising, the

A satisfactory report on the condition of the Zala mine was made
to the directors by Superintendent
D. M. Snyder on May 21. He
states that the upraise from the
300 to the 150-foot level was completed on April 17, giving thorough
ventilation and drainage to a depth
of 31a feet on the pitch of the vein.
The vein averages 3 feet wide
between the levels, with values as
good as in other workings.
The south drift had reached a
distance of 150 feet from the crosses ut tunnel and the showing was
most highly encouraging. The
ledge averaged 3 feet 3 inches for
110 feet, then began to widen and
for the last 40 feet was from 3 to 8
feet wide. He believes a still stron-
er*body of ore will be met 130 feet
further south, there being a body of
quartz on the surface above this
point, which carries much characteristic high grade ore. He has
thoroughly explored the croppings
and found the vein continuous to
the south limits of the claim.
Mr. Snyder expresses the conviction that the whole body of
quartz can be treated on the spot at
a large profit and that with some
sorting a considerable quantity of
high grade ore can be obtained.
He estimates that there are 12,000
tons of ore in sight. He gives a
table of assays, showing a value of
$262 at a point 25 feet up the raise
and general samples from the south
drift ranging from $13.48 to $69,
the bulk of the value being in silver.
The value of the 14 tons shipped
was $134.93 silver and $9.12 gold
per ton.

In explaining the impossibility of
American intervention in South Africa, the Salt Lake Tribune says"
"England has a vast territory in
South Africa outside of the so-called
free states, and this war means that
South Africa must be all English or
all Boer, because when President
Kruger began the war he did not
begin with the intention of merely-
establishing the independence of
the Transvaal and the Orange Free
State, but Cape Colony as well. And
that, in the very nature of things,
was an impossibility from tbe first,
because it would mean such a
breaking of prestige and such a
humiliation to Great Britain that,
were England to admit it, her influence in the world's work would
be nil; there would not be a nation
of Europe that would respect her;
there would not be one wild tribe in
Asia or Africa that would not be
willing to accept tbe belief tbat she,
as a world power, had ceased to
That states the case precisely.
When the Boers not meiely declared war, but carried the war into
British territory, pretended to annex it and stirred up rebellion
among tbe Queen's Dutch subjects,
it became necessary for Great Britain not merely to drive out the invaders but to utterly destroy them
as independent states. This was
necessary in order that there might
remain no nucleus of disaffection
from which the conflicCmight be
renewed. This condition of affairs
made the war as much a struggle
for the suppression of rebellion and
the extirpation of its smallest roots
as it was a conflict with independent or semi-independent states.
By their own act the Boers made
any middle course impossible. Had
the Transvaal simply refused the
concessions demanded by the imperial government and had British
troops been sent into the country
to enforce the demands ofthe suzerain power, matters would have
assumed a very different form. Thc
Transvaal government might have
been allowed to continue with the
changes necessary to ensure equal
rights to all nationalities, with the
disarmament of its fortresses and
thc establishment of British garrisons in its principal cities. No pretext would have existed for any attack on the independence of lire
Orange Free State. It is evident
that in their vaulting ambition lo
establish an Afrikander confedera
tion, the Boers rushed to their own
destruction and, when their republics become British crown colonics,
they will have nobody to thank but
themselves. But they may ultimately thank tbe British government, when they have learned to
appreciate thc blessings of British
law and liberty and have bad an
oppoitunity to make tbe comparison with Krugerism,

London, May 26.—As anticipated, tbe first news after a long silence from Lord Roberts was the
announcement that the British had

probably Gen. Mutton's column,
which crossed at Parys and may be
expected to make a dash at the
railroad in the neighborhood of
Potchefstroom, whence there is direct communication with Johannesburg.

at Boschbank, which is close to the

Roberts' headquarters may be expected to also cross the Vaal river
and create a diversion on the flank

only about 13 miles to travel, a

nothing more or less than a pitched

of mankind have, up till recently,
had a sort of mortgage on the fat

June Dili,it, will have a mighty small
majority with which to do business.
Joe will require himself and 22 com
panions on the government benches
to feel anyways safe and comfortable.
In opposition to the government is a
motley array of Conservatives, Independent Liberals, Provincial Party
men and Independent Labor men.
No one party going to make up the
opposition is sufficiently strong in itself to hold the reins of power, and at
best the new government would be a
coalition affair. It would seem the
