silence is sinister.       If it   is   true the
legations are safe they could communicate with Europe.      Jf they cannot'il

Dear Friend,���I i eceived- your welcome letter iii due course, hut, did not
like to'answei at-at. the lime it did not
look as though we were K��h-g t'o'see

We find a splendid voyage ' otit and a

very pretty place of J.  t-hould  say  ot),-'

fairly light, others* wry   black.    I  ain.
not  pat'ticiilai-ly  fond- of  ihetn,   they,
haveatlavci all their own. ^ There has
been a'  big camp around   Capo, Town"
eversiueo our arrival, butoU-ost of  Iht*
regiments are being rno.ved   upj to  the
front now.   There'are a'Jot of Jjoei*
prisoners   kept'at   Ci ceppoint   camp.
They are in a larirc-* enclosure'and  well
guarded.    One was  killed* recently  in
an attempt to escape, hut  it does not
seem to have much effect on   the, rest.
They are a hard looking lot.
We are just sailing around Ihe

to lie down those chaps .Kept  right on
singing up to within forty yards of (he
Boer, trenches  where   they   dug  Iiltle
pits with   their   bayonets   and forced
the enemy to get out.    The   Boers  are

Upon this point IMi*. Mulock observed,  "In spite of  what  may  he said to the'  contrary, these cheapened  rales  have  brought the post offices nearer to  the  people, of Canada',  and  not merely  lo,  the hankers and   Ihe commercial  men  and the men who write to Uhini, Unrig  Kong, and Japan,���������the inas>es of   people   have   availed   themselves on   the  cheap rates, as oin he,found bv the re-  turns in   the   postma-ti-r geieral's  re-  porl.    You will ii nd   the sau.e sie.idy  growth in the (rural  post  offices   as   hi  the city   offices.    If   it   were  only   the  wealthy ihat    were   taking  ad vantage  of the extra   facilities   now  niy.-red   liy  "the post office  department,   we'would  find    an.   enormous    increase ' in    Ihe  cities a.nd we woul.l find  an   *.;:iormous  decrease in tiie  country.'   That  the case. -    -  The total revenues from the city offices' is   about,   one-third   of   the   loial  revenue's of lhe post office department,  and the increase keeps pace  fairly   between the one and  the  other,  so   that  froui the increase in the city 'po������l offices we can make an  estimate of  what  would be the increase in'lhe rural  districts.    It is an   entire error'fYr any  hou.   gentlemen   tc' assume  (hati'lhe  leduced rales has not been fully  taken  advantage of by   the   humblest people  as well as that class lor which my hou.
