The    project   is  B-tag strongly advocated by theMail-  Hmpire,  through th.   editors  of    its  "Woman's   page.     Major Keeter,    of  Toronto  has   subscribed   ?1C00   as   a  -tarter and Uforts are being made to  ������������������.erganize a: r_prcsentaUve   committee  to raise more funds.

Tlio   estimated   cost  for six months Is $150,000.  .Our Livingston correspondent  .-Tites: "I may Bay that Major  i_e_ter is a gentleman ot large  means and good standing In Toronto,  late. surgeon In the British army,  taring served with distinction in the  Egyptian and Indian wars.

Canadians  generally have already given generously of their means in connexion  .Kith the war. Much as we should  lite to se_ a Canadian hospital ship  sent out we know no practical way  to Its accomplishment-except through  tbe possible -. munificence of some of  ���������ur money magnates.  MAJUBA AVENGED  The war despatches from .South  Africa today (Tuesday) bring, news  _T Lord Roberta' brilliant victory over  Qeneral Cronje. and the capture ot  the famous Bo=r general and his entire army. The fact that this great  success of British arms has taken  place on the anniversary of Majuba  ���������qrtll make it all tha more acceptable  to the man in the street who be-  Heves in the principle of "an eye for  an eye and a tooth for a tooth."  Lord Roberts' magnificent strategy  has' had its ample reward .and he  Sas succeeded so far in fully carrying out every detail of his original  plan of campaign.  When the main incidents of the  Boer war come to be written by the  Historian, it will hare to be conced-  --  *sd.._.that_ihere exist but few instances  of the magnificent courage^and'figlit--  ing ability shown by the Boer gen-  ocal who today ... is a prisoner in  General Roberts' camp. Relentlessly pursued, driven to cover, outnumbered and surrounded, he maintained a defence which has already  KOa for him the admiration of his  enemy. His surrender was not made  until every means of defence was e_-  __.usted, and reflects ho dishonor  upon him and upon his gallant followers. That he will receive generous  treatment-"at tho hands of his victorious opponent goes without saying.  Although General Buller has suffered heavily in hiB attempt to re-  Hove tho beleaguered garrison at  __dyBmith, ho has made a dogged  _-va_co and according to the latest  reports has already begun the attack on th- last Boer line of defence,  a'ho British have now, however, the  advantage all along the line and the  news of c-ho relief of Ladysmith may  b_  expected at any  moment.  DRAIN TRADE STATISTICS  Tha annual report of tho Winnipeg Grain Exchange has been issued  in pamphlet form with the usual  statistical information added. Th������  total grain storage capacity, according   to   the    Commercial,   including  Canadian Lake Superior terminal  elevators anil points west thereof, is  I������_aced at 20,908,000 ..bushels, showing  an-increase of over 950,000. bushels  a year ago. The capacity of flour  mills in Manitoba and the Territories is placed at 10,230 harrels per  day. This does not include the large  mill of the Lake of the Woods Milling company at Keewatln. Tho average capacity of oat meal mills is placed at 750 barrels per day, there  being four oat meal mills in Manitoba and one; at Edmonton, in Alberta. About 8,000,000 bushels of the  wheat crop of 1898 were inspected at  Winnipeg. Up to the end of December  last the large quantity of 17,369,410  bushels of the wheat crop of 1899  had been inspected at Winnipeg. The  large increase in inspection Is due  to the new regulations making inspection   at    Winnipeg    compulsory.  The quality of the crop in 1899 is  shown to be high; 72 per cent grading No. 1 hard; compared with 35M>  per cent in 1898; C4 per cent in 1897;  55 per cent in 189C; 31. per cent in  1895; 76 per cent-in 1894, 53 per cent  There was the buzzing sing song of  a mosquito as X lay half awake wondering    where he   would    light;    the  warn_ morning   air   camo   gustily   in*  through the open tent door, with half  closed eye a I saw in the distance the  rocky hills, i and  the sound  of  voices  that  had   the  accent   that  Canadians  are  developing with   their  nationality  was around  me.     The  mosquito buzzed on, and 1 thought I was In Canada in  the  gladsome    summer    time1.  ".Reveille  has  gone  an  hour  ago,  get  up,"   said   a  voice   that   didn't  dispel  the illusion, and I dreamily  wondered  why  they   used  military    phrases   in  Muskoka,   'til  the mosquito  got in  its  deadly work, and I awoke to find myself in the  camp  of  the : Royal  Canadian   regiment   at   Belmont,   on   the,  line of communication with the Kimberley   relief    force,   and   I   felt   very  much at  home and  murmured:      "Go  on, boys,  and  talk, and give ''.om_ lots  of   'h's,'   millions    of   'h'a'"      I   have  been two months with   English    regiments  and   I'm   short    on     aspirates.

And I curled myoslf under the blankets and they talked.   ��������� I had brought  the latest  Canadian  papers,  and    some other things, and I was;welcome. Interlarded "with, tho news'.of  the camp were discussions : on th-  newf. "in" the.C.'i.naflli-.i papers;-HukIi  John Macdonald's victory in Manitoba  was the piece de resistance.  They Talked Politics.  And then they talked polities. -Now  I hadn't come up from De Aar without leave to hoar a'political discussion  and have the'.

Sir John Macdonald  was wont to say, that there was more  politics to the acre In Canada than  in any other country in the world.  And Sir John Macdonald knew the  Canadian people. Aa for the English  Tommy Atkins, he seldom, if ovesri  talks politics. He '.was and is down  on Gladstone, for he believes that the  G. O. ���������'���������__.'��������� was a "peace at any price"  statesman, but the subtleness of the  Manitoba school question would havo  no charms for Tommy. In five minutes our tent was divided Into two  political nnrtles, and T browsed quietly around camp for news.  De Aar, where I am laying in wait,  for Lord Roberts' plan of campaign  is beyond doubt the most objectionable place in South Africa. ,;. Where  nature, by way of sand storms, heat  and dirt, has failed In making It a  hades on earth, the' military authorities and 'martial', law: have completed  by^vexatious-ruies-and-pett*!__omcifl-l-  lsm. Modder river has ��������� drawbacks  as regards sand and heat and militarism, but it has the' only decent  grovo of trees and the only place a  man can have a swim north of CaPe  Town::on: the western side ot Cape  Colony. But the weary waiting in  the facia of the enemy becomes unbearable at times. Belmont is better,  but It la distinctly no paradise. To  me It was of a certain amount of  Interest, for the last time 1 had gont-  over the ground, the veldt showed!  the slowly moving lines of  Khaki.  The Kopjes Blaze  wilh quick tiring rifles, and there wan  tho rattle and roar of . Lee-.Metfords,  Mausers, and thirteen pounders;. ther-  was the- swirl, the pulse-throbbing excitement of buttle. To the Canadian  regiment the oppressive calm ot' tne  African Karoo, with Its* almoHt uncanny absence of animal llfo, except  that which man himself affords, must  have been monotonous and trying to  the extreme.

That a Canadian is an unknown  quantity to the Imperial ofllcer and  man ia neither here nor there. There  is one thing he does not'understand,  and that is the Canadians are dead  anxious for a fight. It seems to  savor almost ot blood-thirstiness Ui  hear when knocking around the Canadian camp the expressions of piteous desire to have a. "scrap" with the  Boers. The Canadian seems to be  hungering for it. He will get it.  .The .manner of the. Canadian soldier  and his" beautiful language bewilders  the ordinary Imperial ofllcer.' There  was <*_ ten string mule team in trouble  as an ofllcer of the Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry and I worei  strolling past the railway station at  Belmont. A fractious mule was endeavoring to. make rlftsr In the blue  canopy overhead with those peculiar  hitching kicks that the mill- ha.,  made peculiarly his own. A group  of Canadians were listening with)  wrapt and admiring attention as the  native driver tallied forolhly Ir  three or; four aboriginal ���������. languages-l  between the lashes of his tfirrlblo"  whip tn the long eared disturber of  Her Majesty's transport service,  "Here, now.- what's Ihis. now? What's  the meaning of this?" said my companion, becoming very much the  officer as three or fnut- tntilen gotl  tangled up In a confused heap ot\  c*nrs. bodies, leers, hfirness, blannheniv  whifile-trees, whip lashes, brays and'  kicks. "Here now, what does this  mean?"  The Heels of Five Canadians,  came smartly together las thev stood  at "attention." five hands went up  in the salute, and one remarked, without changing a muscle of his face,  and  with    that,   inimitable    westecni  adian  language.  There is a story going the rounds  of tho camps, barracks, messes and  canteens of South Africa, from Durban to Modder Kiver, and is a tit-bit  at Cape Town dinner tables. When  the flro was hottest at Sunnyside, and  the Canadians and Queenslanders  were moving forward from cover to  cover on <tho Boer position, tho Toronto company camo to the verge of  400 or 500 yards of .open veldt without  a vestige of rook to give shelter. The  Queenslanders were pressing forward  on their left on better ground. It  was necessary to get over that open  space under the heavy fire on the  run. There was hardly a pause when  a sergeant yelled out; "Double up  like -���������, boys, or there won't be a-  -��������� Boer left. Those Queenslanders  want the earth." I should like to  have seen  that race.  No wonder the Canadian  is an  unknown quantity to the English officer.  I   saw    rather    laughingly    illustrated   ono  day   In   Cape   Town.      I   had  known   the   Canadian    In���������no    matter  what city���������and If he hadn't boon such  a sterling good fellow he   would have  been  laughed  at as an  Anglo-manlnc  of the dandy order.     Ho was a howling swell  In  his limited  sphere.      Ho  wns the Inst man ono -would suppose  who  would   shoulder   a  rifle  nnd   endure  the   discomforts   of  active   service.     But hero ho wan a full private  In   the   ranks.,   drawing   a   shilling   n;  day.'living   on    army    rations,     and  Hwnarlng because his regiment, wnsn't  given    an   opportunity   to    slnughtor.

"For   heaven's   sake,  lot us forget the misery of that voyage, and those   beastly fatigues   and  guards   for   one  day.      Lot   us    have  dinner at Mount Nelson and live once  more."      Now Mount  Nelson  hotel  is  tho     Waldorf-Astoria,      Queens     and  Windsor rolled into one, and combines  tho   aristocratic    exeluslveness     of   a  private hotel in London,: with a military   swagger .and   dash   due   to   the  times.     The  waiters  looked  down  on  anything, less   than   a   major,   and   a  civilian,   if  he hasn't  at  least  three-  quarters of a million. I explained this  to  my friend and  his  eyes  glistened.  I     was  putting     coals to the     fire.  VTlioy will know or think we are just  from the front, and'wo can go as we  are   .They    won't   know    I   am   a  private," he said drawing himself up.  "All  the  officers  at  the    front    have  taken    off    all    the    marks    of    their  ranks."      And   I   remembered  that  It  was considered  very. much  the   thing  for young officers to come   down from  the  front In campaigning outfit,  with  ���������Incipient  beards  and   the    marks    of  battlefield  and camp.;    It-was a sort  of a wild  heroic pose,  and    I also remembered  that you got a remarkably  good -dinner  at.   the    Mount    Nelson.  The Canadian's  face fairly, glowed as  he studied  the bill  of fare���������he is', one  of* the   few   men   who   know  how   to  order a dinner���������arid glanced around at  the evening dress of the men, and the  gleaming while shoulders and:.beautiful toilettes  of  the ladies,  for    many  ot London's smartest set are in Cape  Town   this  winter.   The   Canadian; felt  very  much   at  home.      Entering  the  handsome  dining  room   I   saw   a  man  who I had known very well 'on board  the  Carisbrooke  Castle    coming    out.  He caught "my eye,  came over, seemed to be glad  to meet me again,, and  I asked  him to sit down with  us.    He  was    in   uniform,  and    my    Canadian  friend, soldier he is to the heels of the  ammunition hoots, was about: to stand  to attention and salute till I whispered "sit tight."

There was one solitary steeu  left when  I came up.  He  didn't seem  to .have    a  friend in  tlie  wide, wide world.      Nobody seemed to  want him  ,but I looked  at  him,  and  my heart glowed within me.     He was  the perfect embodiment of the cayuse  or  Indian  pony  of    the    prairies    of  western America.     It made me homesick to look at him.     His very grunt  as I swung into the saddle seemed a  voice from    home.      After    a' painful  hour's jaunt I  tied him  to   the  wire  fence near  my  tent,   and  during  the  process of getting grub and the tired,  half  sleepy    after    dinner    smoke,   I  dreamed dreams about that pony. How  I would  feed him  up,  and from  my  western   knowledge   of ��������� tho   supernatural cunning of tho animal, I felt that  I would  soon outwit outposts, patrols  and rival correspondents. For 1 know  the cayuse, and that   was one if ever  thero was.     And I looked out of tho  tent door  to  verity  my  opinion.    He  was   gone���������vanished���������disappeared���������vamoosed.      "Untied  the bridle with his  teeth; old trick," I thought as I .went  out.     But  no,      Far  away  over  tho  veldt  In   the; glimmering  sunshine,   1  could  soo   my  horse,   my  own   horso,  moving at a quick amble, and he had  a Tommy,   a live  Tommy,  In   tho  all  pervading,   non   Identifying  khaki,   on  his  back,   and  I  knew   that  before   I  should arrive In-tho cavalry lines that  pony would have    chnngod hands    at  least 19 tlmcB, and that my horse, my  own   horse,   was   gone   forever.

CRONJE'S   INSENSIBILITY
fur-
of nothing but General
fight tothe death in that fiory
__c_ of shrapnel, lyddite and common
Shell. It was not war, but It was so
magnificent that the British casualty
list- when they were posted were
read with something like insensibility,
although they disclosed n. Jos s or
nearly ISO ot the rank and file who
���were killed on Sunday. General
Cronje's defence, hopelsss as It seemed, touched the English imagination
All the military writers agree that
General Cronje's only chance lies n
a powerful diversion in his favor by
tlio Dutch reinforcements drawn from
Natal. Colesburg and Stormberg
Three British brigades were faction
Sunday and Monday, with another
brigade and French's cavalry in.reserve. If the 20,000 burghers from
Natal and the 10.000 more from the
southern frontier could be suddenly
concentrated against General Cronje s
besiegers, bis deliverance might be effected or at least the Issue of the
traclo struggle at Koodosberg would
be .eft in doubt. Lord Roberts-would
have two brigades of the seventh division available: aa a reserve against
this concentration and with possible
help from the ftr'st division. Although
he has a .line of communication to
be guarded for 25 or 30 miles from the
Modder river station from 3*-,000 to
40,000 -men could be massed by
Lord Roberts in an emergency at
Koodosberg. There is no evidence yet
that the Dutch concentration has
taken place yet on a large ��cale.
Pretoria reports stated yesterday
that 6 000 Boers have gone from Natal
by the Free State. This estimate
may not include the Free State lorces
retreating . westward by . Harrismitli
-S-id Bethlemen. The. Dutch forces
have disappeared from Uolwburg and
Stormberg districts so that the .British columns there can now advance
cautiously toward the Orange river.
' but the strength of- the reinforcements available for . General Cronje b
assistance from that quarter is conjectural. . . .-.
Well informed men in touch with
the-war office agree that the best
thing that can happen for the British
aide is the.concentration of the entire
Dutch army at Koodosberg, since that
policy will enable Lord Roberts to
deliver a crushing blow* with his own
forces heavily massed, a. short.distance from the railway base: Otherwise they say General..Cronje's surrender will be followed by a tedious
campaign through the. enemy s country, with long lines of communication
to be maintained. One point which
is not understood, is the silence of
General Cronje's guns. . The British
batteries are ^firing at close range.-
whereas the big guns which were at
Magersfontein ought to .enable .General Cronje to make a good defence. Apparently his guns are not with him. ^

dated   Saturday,   February 24:

stutc3 that General Cronjo Is willing
to surrender, but the young lioertl
will not listen to It. General Cronje
Is conspicuous for insensibility. During the Boor war of Independence
when the surrender of the Potches-
strom garrison was secured by tho
suppression of the truth of a gener-il
armistice arranged between the British and Dutch armies, the prisoners
of war were forced to work where
they were exposed to Are and were
shot down by their own friends. His
Insensibility Is now revealed by his
indifference to the lives and suffering
of his own men who are conducting a
hopeless defence and by his refusal
of Lord Roberts' offer of medical aid
and  protection-to women.

Roberts' despatch was sent to the
war office. . General Cronje is still
holding his position under the concentrated fire of 50 guns, and the
Dutch relieving forces outside thd
British lines had not been massed in
suthcient strength to- effect his da-*
livery. The British outposts were
assailed in force by the Boors from
Natal. The Boers ��� lost many m_r_|
in killed and wounded. Nearly
100 prisoners were taken by the British, including .one commandant. The
British casualties on* Wednesday' and
Friday were two killed and 48 wounded. . These figures indicate that Lord
Roberts is .besieging Cronje's * be-'
leaguered" laager with artillery and
keeping the infantry under cover,-and
that the Natal reinforcements have
been beaten back with, slight British
losses. The Boer concentrations had
not been sufficiently - large" . to - break
through Lord. Roberts' lines. There
was a, continuous--bombardment "of
General,-Cronje's  position.
There were various despatches of an
earlier date than Saturday in Fleet
street last night with details of Lord
Roberts' . Investment of Cronje's
laager. . There was a general agreement on an essential fact, that- General Cronje's position was desperate,
and that there was -no possibility of
his escape. The Shropshlres by their
advance had * deprived the Boers of
considerable space and the hill captured Wednesday commanded the approaches from the east. British guns,
covered the sloping banks of the river

From Mafeking Since   February 12th.
London, Feb. 27.���A despatch from
Paardeberg, dated Friday, to Tho
Times says that several thousand
Boeis are now hovering in that neighborhood. The gathering of this army
across the path of Lord Roberts gives
significance to General Cronje's steadfast defence. He has engaged the
corps of Lord Roberts for ten days
now, and whether he is relieved or
not, he has given time for dispersed
Boer factions lo gather and to prepare positions to receive the British
advance when Cronje is overcome and
Lord Roberts moves forward. It is
difficult to conceive that the Boers
are strong enough to take the offensive and rescue General Cronje from
his precarious situation. The war
office had nothing after midnight to
indicate his collapse and he may hold
out for a few days.
Nothing has been heard from Mare-
king since February 12th. The movement on the veldt away from th_
railway is becoming increasingly difficult for large bodies of troops, as

and that only defeat aud capture was
in prospect if he continued to ilg'it.
He wished to avoid useless sheddias
of blood, and to cave his women ami

be  given  safe conduct-
Lord Kitchener granted the reque3i

���were   concerned,   but    insisted     that

entered  the  British lines.    He    was

laager ,in heaps, some of thd_i crying piteously, others 6hrie_i>_g in
pain, many silently ending their
agonies.
The British troops immediately on
taking possession of tlie laag;r were
ordered by Lord , Roberts to'devote
all their"-attention to succoring the
wounded and burying the dead, -as
well as caring for the women - and
children, who," panic stricken, and in
expectation of some awful punishment, could hardly " be " induced - to
accept kindness or aid from-their
conquerors.
The British commissariat was taxed* to its utmost to give immediate,
relief to the" sufferers,,- but everything
possible is being done to alleviate
the.condition of the captives.
It Is' believed that. the surrendered
force numbers between 7000 and 8000
combatants. Besides these there ai<
over 1000 women and childien, Kaffir, laborers and members of tho -tie 1
Cross relief  corps.

You're an absent minded beggar,  and

If any  one  should   take you as  they

You'd leave your job and happy home

CECIL   RHODES,
Opinion, and  Remarks on the Transvaal War.
Kimbierley,   Saturday,   Feb:  24.���Mr.
Cecil   Rhodes,  presided  at  a meeting
of the De Beers company held today
and   announced   that   thc   profits   for
the   year were    ��2,000.000.      Speaking
of the war he considered It a puzzle
why   It   had   arisen.       The Transvaa*!
and  the Free States  were not  republics   he  declared,   but  oligarchies  and
had  been  lone    conspiring    to    seize
British South  Africa.      Each Kovernment    was simply    a small . Political
gang who humbugged the poor Dutchmen,   appealing    to   their    Patrt����"l
and   dividing  tho  spoils  among  their
coteries.     Thc Africander   had   been
working 20 years for the Independence
of Africa.     He said that former Pre-
sid-nt Relt��,    of    the    Orange    Free
State., had years and yenrai ago n*��fe
a vow that his only ambition In lire
was to drive England out of Africa.

A government struggling to  the last moment to hang on to power���������  defeated in the end by n schoolboy  piece of trickeiy. Disinis-icilaiid passing a vote of censure on the Lieut.-  Govt.vnor for dismissing them. Of all  tho sorry farces I hat were ever unacted on the political stage, surely  that entitled the Semlin government  is the worst. Ushered into power  nearly two years ago with 11 flourish  of trumpets, nsa business government,  a reforming government, the people's  government, it sunk on Tuesday into  an imhonored tomb, with scarcely any  regret, even from its own  supporters.  The dramatic features of the Semlin  administration have been furnished by  the varied rises and falls of Joe Martin,  Last session he was the leader of the  house, the'.master of the administration, the small fry,  the Deanes and  Kellies abased  themselves    before 'his  eye; Rostock's brass band sounded his  praises without ceasing and  grovelled  at his feet.   Then, lo, in the twinkling  of an eye, he is outside, dismissed from  office without a follower, and Rostock's  hired men join in  one mighty chorus  of Uiev*I.ogiH.'s  March.    But his constituents in  Vancouver endorse him.  Then comes the dramatic opening of  thu     session.     The   hurried   rush   to  Victoria and  the government trembling within an ace  of  defeat.    In  the  midst of his triumph Nanaimo thrusts  him out of the labor party and his day  seems done again.     But the  Vancouver labor  party   reindo'*sed   by  him.  Then   came   the   utterly    ineffectual  attack on Cotton in thehc.use,   Smash;  ed hy his own boomerang, any ordinary  politician   would   have    gone    home  about then.    Not so with Joe.    Undismayed and unabashed   in   a  few  days  he has actually ousted thc government  out of power by the unwitting aid  of  our own   Kellie.   and   today  beholds  h'un forming a cabinet as the  possible  premier of the  province.    If  there   is  my other  parallel  history  lo  this   in  the annals  of   British  parliamentary  institutions the HEKAJ-D has failed   to  come across it.  Red Cross  When you havo to purchase drug, or get a  prescription filled. See that the lied Cross Is  on the package. It Ib a guarantee that thc  drugs used arc pure and prime. For not only  is It Important to have pure drugs, but albo  prime drugs. Unfortunately there are many  inducements oflercd to manufacturers lo use  drugs, which, although pure, do not serve the  purpose of doing any better than those which  aro actually adulterated. These are drugs  which have been collected out of season, or  have been badly cured.  Wc use our experience (of nearly 20 years) In  examining tho drugs wo use, and you can  depend upon everything being la tbe prlmest  condition.  G-.F. Curtis  " THE DRUGGIST "  Successor to the JleD.

The next night Dundonald entered Ladysmith aid  relieved tin. gallant garrison, who  were in sole straits from disease and  lack of water, after their long siege of  over three months.

The war has proven  them fii-iifen worthy of British steel,'  and John Bull never likes .1 nation any  the worse for having put up a good  fight against him. It has shown. Inn,  that while there are ruflhins in the  Boer ranks, just the same as in any  army, there, are also plenty of gallant  nnd chivalrous soldiers, who know how  to succor and spare a fallen foe as well  as to stand up *igain.-*t an ntlac-king  one. There is a streak in lhe Boer  make up vei y neat-akin to one in our  own composition.
