The    Canadian   Patriotic   Fund,*  although barely started, is growing  in a  manner that promises ultimate  magnificent results.,   Amongst  the  subscriptions   already   in  we  may  mention  the C. P. R., $15,000; the  Grank   Trunk    Raihvaj',   $15,000,-  Bank of Montreal, $10,0007 Toronto Globe Fund, over $11,000;: City  of Hamilton, Out., $10,000, and,so  oil  all   over  the broad   Dominion.  Even   little Calgary, with a papulation of 4,cob,   has subscribed $-2^-  ��00, and claims  the  banner as* t!��'  amount subscribed per head:.     The  total   is away   over   the $ioid,.ooo  ���mark  and bids fair to reach a quarter of a  million.    We  have faith  that  little Atlin,   per capita,,  will  show up with the best '*f them. '  .formerh' chancellor of Upper Canada  has been speaking very plainly on  the"subject of rumors that members  ofcertain Irish societies contemplated  an invasion of Canada. He said-to  the people- of Longford, that if he believed it was true, he. would , have  borrowed a Mauser; have learned  the new rifle practice, and have taken .passage to Canada to "help defend my wife,, children and' grandchildren from my brother home-  rulers. ,r The foi mer Caaiadiaialeader  has no sympathy with the more advanced section of his party.  According to an English, engi-  , neering journal  the horses- of the  *ScotS' Greys now at the front in  . Africa  have been dyed to .resemble  the color of khaki,, rendering them  less conspicuous in action.  TO HADES,   HE SAID.      ,  The Highlanders' attachment to  - the kilt was once  more strikingh''  shown by the events that have lately transpired in South Africa.    Correspondents describe with an  air  of  wonderment how - at the ��� battle  of  Elandslaagle  the  gallant Gorefans  declined to fight without  their tar  tans, although the commanding officer suggested their doing so to make  them less conspicuous objects to the  Boer marksmen.    The  result was  that a large number of the officers  .and men were  killed  or wounded;  but it is not the least bit moreprob^  able that the Highlanders will   voluntarily discard the kilt in any future engagement.   The obtuseness of  the British War Office oil this point  has frequently threatened  to cause  trouble, ��� for the Sassenach never  could properly appreciate the esprit  de corps of Highland corps or the  importance thej- place on matters of  dress.     It would   be   well  to have  read to military officials periodical^-1  the letter which Col. Alan Cameron  wrote to the Horse Guards in   1804  in reply to a request for his "private  opinion  as  to  the  expediency    of  abolishing the kilt in Highland regiments,    and    substituting  in  lieu  thereof   the   tartan  trews".    This  was the Col.   Cameron   who  raised  the Seventy-ninth Highlanders, and  whose colloquy- with   the  Duke  of  York is    well   known.    "To  draft  the   Seventy-ninth,"   he  said,   "is  more than j'ou or your royal   father  dare     do."    The     Duke    replied  that  the   King,   his  father, would  certainly send the regiment to the  West Indies.    Col. Cameronv losing  his  temper, said;    "You may    tell  the  King,   your  father, from me,  tnat he may send us to h if he-  likes, and   I'll  go at the head of  them: but he daur na draft us.."

'   ��,  *     ' ' <  i    At   the  present juncture,   when  certain.   French    newspapers  have  much to say with regard-io Britain's  colonial policy ih  gereral  and  her  South African j olicy in   particular,  J     it   is  refreshing to turn to the writings  of  a   Frerch   journalist  ai d  tia\eller, who, while by   no  means  enthusiastic in   love of things English, is  at  least   honest  enough to  ,set down fairly that  which   he  has  learnt-from enquiries "on the spot."  Ivl. Paul Blouet,   better  known   by  his pen-name of "Max   O'Rell,"   is  a. French critic  whose descriptions  of John Bull's methods of' Empire-  building   might  be read  with.,in-  .slruction    bj'-. our volatile frieuds  c, across the Channel.!  Max O'Rell, in the  course of a  tour of the British colonies,   \ isited  >  South Africa in 1893, arrd his impres-"  sions are given in   "John   Bull  and  Co."    published  in   the   following  year.      "The     Boers,"     he   said,  "have    a    bad   habit,   which  his  "' - constantly been the'cause  of quarrels between them and the English.  >    In the eves of the Boeis, tthe, abor-  lgines'ofSoutn Africa are not human  beings to be-conciliated, - but .wild  animals, to be tracked and extermi-  ^nated-,.whenever    occasion  offers.  W ben they did not kill  them they  madesla'ves ofthem/and drove.them  to work with   great .leather  whips  .    that they would* never' have' dared  use about the oxen that drew  their  carts.    They' never sought  to civi-,  .lise nor instruct' them,- nor- even  to  convert thtm, for they do not admit  . the negro can ha\e a soul. It is now  well known that the Transvaal  and  * f - *  the surrounding   territories  are' all  ���   underlaid with gold, but-it is quite  certain that the Boersnever will dig  for it.    In a very few years the country will be-overrun by' gold-seekers  from all parts  of the world.    The  Boers will continue  to scratch   the  surface of the earth,   but  they  will  not dig far below-it.    They occupy  immense tracts of land, which they  do not cultivate, and in their hands  the country makes no progress.    I  have seen farmers whose farms were  as large  as   Devonshire,   and  who  contented themselves with pasturing  cattle on a few hundred acres.   They  are ignorant,behind the times, stubborn, and lazj\    They refuse to till  the earth with modern implements.  They do the kind   of farming  that  was done in the time  of Abraham,  Isaac, and Jacob.   Their houses are  often like  pigstyes.    Before  going  to bed, they take off their boots, and  call that undressing.    The floor  is  their bed.    Skins are spread on it,  and  there    all  the family ��� men,  women, and children���sleep higgledy-piggledy.    Take all that is dirtiest, bravest, most old-fashioned, and  most obstinate in a Breton, all that  is most suspicious, sly, and mean in  a Norman,   all  that  is  shrewdest,  most hospitable, and  most   Puritan  and btgoted in a Scot, mix well, stir,  and serve, and you have a Boer, or,  if you will��� a boor.   No, the world  of to-day gees round too rapidly  to  allow the Loer to   stand  still.    He  will have to   "mend or' end,"    For  a long time the  Boers  refused  to  have trains  in  the  Transvaal,   because this kind of locomotion is not  ut: itia ie:l iu. lh* Bible., an..!. iL   w as calling therailways "steam  tramways" that lhe>- were induced  Lp have them at all.

The ;  writer goes on to say that "the most |  marvellous monument to British en  ergy aud perseverance is Johannesburg, thecity of gold.   Johanesburg !  is not only the most important town |  of is the  most  im-  portanttown of South Africa.   The  Hoers cannot boast of having  contributed  either' to .its  birth  or its  growth; Johannesburg is  a  cosmo-,  politau town, 'where every   nation  seemed to be represented except the  Transvaal.    The Boers are  farmers  and    sportsmen ��� nothing    more.  Their ancestors  were farmers, and  they    do  not conceive    that  they  themselves could be anything  else.  Ignorant, bigoted, behind the times,  these.Dutch   Bretons,   transplanted  in Africa, cultivate the soil like the  contemporariesr, of the -patriarchs,  and refuse even to1 look   at'agricul-  tural   machineiy.

During  the last winter, to the opening of  1 navigation in the spring of 1898,  1,740 passengers passed in over the  ice. Since the opening of navigation, 3,694 passengers went to Dawson.
