City of Loudon Conservative Association, made an important  anniiimceiiient regarding thu government's South African policy.  ���������'Tliu 'Slop thu war' jmrtv havu used  my inline," said the premiur, "in  support of their ideas, hy stating that  1 promised that lheir should be un  annexat ion of territory, nor annexation of the gold fields. I never gave  lhe pledge. I never meant to give a  pledge. (Loud cheers.) 1 slated a  simple historical fact. We wen;  accused of going to war forlust of gold  mil territory. It. was one of tho-e  atrocious calumnies, which, under the  favoring inllueiiceof Dr. Leyds, spread  it.ielf over thu press of Europe. Nothing could hu moru untrue. We went  to war tost op oppression of thu Queen's  subjects in the Ti ausvaal, and because  our remon-.tr.-inces were met by an  insulting ultimatum, to wliich, if the  Queen's government had submitted,  iier power, not only in South Africa,  but over hei colonies and dependencies,  would have been at an end. We weie  forced inio war by the actions of our  opponents. To say that because we  repudiated t.he greed of territory we  theirfnro hound ourselves never lo  annex any territory, is a most tidicul-  ons. misconstruction.  "I dwell on this matter because this  matter of annex.iliou is about, to become a burning question. We havu  made a truinuiidous sacrifice, of blood.  There are misleading prophets*, whose  action bulks as large in .he columns  of thu iiewspapeis as the action of  more influential and powerful people:  who mislead the rulers of thu Transvaal to continue resistance far beyond  the time when all lesistanee has ceased to he even possibly successful.  These men are perpetually pressing  us to make some conditions, lo offer  some arranged stipulations lhat will  leave a shred of independence to the  two lepublics. Our only certainty of  preventing a recurrence of this fearful  war, is to insure that never again  shall such a vast accumulation of  armaments occur and that not a shred  of the former independence of the re-  puhlic shall remain.   (Cheers.) '  "We are not yet at the end of the  war; but, I shall Venture to lay it  down as a primary condition of any  future settlement, that precautious,  will liu taken of such a character that,  such a war will never occur again. Of  course, what measures will be neces-  saiy it is impossible- at any moment to  determine, because that depends huge  ly upon the action and temper of  those with whom we have to deal.  "I have already intimated that their  resistance has gone heyond the limit  to wliich resistance could .wisely go.  Itisnotfor us lo criticize their acls,  in what they are pleased to cii.il self-  defence.' but they have acteil so that  every bitterness created by* ���������" the war,  and every severance of classes and  races, have been stimulated by every  measure they have taken ; and" so they  go on.  '* It will also be one duty to protect  those native races, who have been so  sorely afflicted, and at ihe tame. time,  so fo'conduct their policy that, so fat-  as possible, there shall bu a reconciliation, and that every one shall be a  h.-ipny member nf the British empire."  After the master of the mils. Lord  Alverslone. lias proposed "The Imperial-Forces." Lord Salisbury again rose,  hold-ng a paper in his hand, and said:  "I find that Lord Roberts has occupied Johnaniieshurg."

" Do you expect that the Conservatives will return a majority?"  "Oh,   yes;   there's   no donht of   il.  We expect to have a majority in every  province excepting, perhaps.

'��������� The CJoverumet.i is unwilling .to  prosecute the investigation because  evidence would prove that Conservative candidates would have been elected in Hiockville and West Huron, and  that the seals had been stolen by  u gang who had been sent to tni-n the  ballot.

London, May IS.���������President Kiiisor,  according to a despatch from Newcastle, has Issued a proclamation asking the Transvaal burghers to notify  hi in whether tliey desire to continue the light or to sue for pence..  Now York, May 25.���������Notwithstanding tho arraignment of the president  that the United Slates will not interfere in tha South African war it is  t.pinirent to the Boer commissioners  that political agitation will uid tlioii*  cause, and they intend to take advantage of every opportunity to pros:,  i. on thc attention oi the American  1-eople.

Verdefort, May 21.���������The British  columns after an unop.ossd marc*  .reached the Verdefort road at 110211  today and are now only two marchcL  from thc Vaal river.  London, May 25.���������Lord Roberts' in  fsr.try advance is delayed at Rhlnos-  t-er river for a day or two by-thc  depth of the stream, which" is not ford-  able.

London May 2D.���������The war office just  before midnight published the following despatch from Lord Koberts:  "Klip River, Transvaal, May 28.���������W������  marched 20 miles today and are now  IS miles from Johannesburg. The  enemy had prepared several positions  where they intended lo oppose us, but  .they abandoned them one after another as we neared them.

Capo Town, May 20.���������Lord Ttobtvls  yesterday intimated to his troops the  annexation of the Free State which  hereafter will bo called tha Orange  River  State.  London, May 20.���������The tenor of Lord  Roberts' despatch of last night and  lhe news from Pretoria this morning  kiidH lhe authorities here lo expect  early further important news from tho  l'.rltish commander In chief, dated,  tliey hope, from Johannesburg. The  reninrlcublu rapidity of Lord Roberts'  movrnienlH and the groat mobility of  the whole Urilish army under him have  upsft the calculations of the home  observer:* rfs much as they appear lo  havo disconcerted nnd demoralized  Lord lloberts' federal opponents. Po!*-  s'.lily. even :*.ou* lie is at the gates of  Johannesburg, and lt is believed thai  in a few days hence or less ho ought  to bu demanding admittance to the  Transvaal capital. Tt the Federals  ever really intended to stagger human! ly by blowlnr. up the city and  contents which is doubtful, Lord  Roberts may yet be heard from and  arrive Ih&rc before they have time to  do any wrecking. The majority of  tiio bur-Jin.rs will undoubtedly be  glad of an excuse for saving the mine;,  and they may Iind the excuse In Lord  lloberts' skill in hustling them out of  01-.0 position after ario'.h-Ji*. The effectiveness of the llritish invasion of  the Transvaal is further emphasised by  the news from Pretoria of lhe occupation of Zeerusl niitl the (.avarice "on  Llchtunburg. Apparently the British  dragnet will bo drawn through the  Transvaal as it was in a similar manner hauled through the Free Stale.  Tho fighting at the Klip river Sunday,  reported from Pretoria, was presumably Generals French and Ian Hamilton righting their way to the northward of Johannesburg.  The Orange Free Stale was annexed  10 the BriLsh empire on May 2Sth,  icenrding to Cape Town advices, but  Lord Roberts seems to have given hi*<  army the first intimation of this on  :'r.e  previous  day.  London, May 20���������The Times publishes the* following from Newcastle,  dated Sunday: "Four hundred Boers  are advancing toward Dundee. There  is no fear of our communications  being   cur."  London, May 2D.���������According to a  special elespateli from Lorenzo Mar-  quez there are 000 Boers on the Portuguese  borders.  London, May 30.���������-Lord Robsrts will  enter Johannesburg at noon,today.  London, May 30.���������The following despatch has been received from Lord  Roberts: "Gorminston, May 23.���������"VVe  arrived here this afternoon without  being seriously opposed. Xo casual-,  tics so far as I am aware of in the  main column and not many in the  cavalry and mounted infantry. The  enemy did not expect us till tomorrow  and had therefore not carried all their  rolling stock off. We have 'possession  of -the junction connecting Johannesburg with Natal, Pretoria and Klerks-  dorp by railroad. Johannesburg is reported quiet, and no mines, I understand have been injured. I shall  summon the commandant in the  morning and if, as I expect, there is  no opposition I propose to enter the  town with all the troops at noon."  Lord Roberts' despatch is regard i-d  as announcing the virtual occupation  of Johannesburg, and apparently the  Boers havo again effected a retreat,'  as there.is no mention of any prison-  tinued all day and thc result ns yf '.:  more conjecture. Probably the 1". ���������>.. 1  rear guard succeeded in keeping . :*������������������  c-ral French off and is now in the* ].. ,  north   west of Johannesburg.  The   news   that   Lord   Roberts   iv.'is  practically    master    of    Johannesburg  was   received   in    London   with   no'ny  enthusiasm.     A procession of student.-.  i marched      through       the    West    Bud  j chc-ering and singing.     The announce-  ! ment al the various places of amuse-  ' ment   was   followed     by   singing    the  [ National   Anthem   and    cheering    for  i "Bobs."  While the townspeople at Fleetwood  were cheering the announcement that  I-oril Roberts had occupied Johannesburg the German crew ot the Henrietta,' an English vessel tha.1 was sold  to n German firm, cheered President  Kruger. Several conflicts occurred  among the Ceinans und tin- English  and the chief ofllcer of the Henrietta  was mobbed. .Ultimately' the police  force was doubled.  London, May 30.���������The Sliuidard has  the following advices from Pretoria,  under Monday's date: "The Trans-  vaul government has opened or is  about to open peace negotiations. It  has cabled a final Inquiry to Its agents  abroad asking whether any hope exists  of  aid."  Without doubt the presence of Lord  Roberts with 10,000 men at Johannesburg will hasten the Transvaal's decision.  Despatches from Lorenzo Marquez  yesterday describes President Kruger  as wavering, but demanding a guarantee that he shall not be exiled to  St. Helena. The fighting burghers still  continue to desert and the total collapse of the Boer military organization is not far off.  Mr. Bennett Burleigh, writing from  Lord Roberts' headquarters at Vercen-  inging. en Sunday says:' "I doubt if  President Kruger can muster. lj.MO  men, as many of the burghers have  gone to their homes."  LETTERS FROM  "OUR BOYS"  TO THE FRONT  and Ian Hamilton's forces are apparently engaged with the enemy about  10 miles to our left as firing has been  heard since noon. The farmers near  our line of advance are surrendering  with their arms and horses. -General  Kur.iT.Q occupied Senchal on May 24.  No report of what luu_ "'.ace has  reached mc yet."  Cape Town, May 20.���������The Free State  was   formally   annexed   today.  Cape Town, May 2D���������It is rumored  here that General French has cut thc  Boer communications between Hc-idel-  jjerg and Boksburg, within a few  miles of Johannesburg.  Iflip lilvor, Transvaal, .Monday, May  28..���������The Boers after preparing a good  position fled early. Tho train bringing their last detachment, was nearly  captured by Pilkington's West Australians. The prisoners taken state that  there was no intention of blowing up  the mines, declaring that the statement was made simply with the intention of frightening away the  burghers. The British advance Is now  Within 15  miles  of Johannesburg.  London, May 29���������The Morning Posl  Jias the following despatch from Lorenzo Marquez, dated Monday:      "President  Kruger has    issued    a    public  proclamation  warning    all    people  to  leave Johannesburg   or remain   there  at the peril of their lives as It might  become necessary to destroy the town  and  the  mines.      Hundreds    of cases  of  winter  clothing   for   the   prisoners  have been sent by the Relief assocla-  '   tion  to  United  Slates Consul Hay,  as  .well as ������1,000 in cJsh."  :'   Pretoria, May 28.���������The British occupied Decrust this morning and a large  force  Is marching on  to  Lichtenbui-g.  An  ofllolal    bulletin    slates    that  the  British crossed  the Vaal  river Saturday.      General  Lemmer  had  a  severe  'fight  at    Klip     river.      Five    ot    the  burghers were wounded and two were  captured.       The   British      were     5.000  .strong.     By an order   recently issued  ers or captures except of rolling stock.  There will be some little anxiety pending   the   actual   occupation  of  Johannesburg, as there are rumors that lhe  town has been, mined  with the intention of   blowing up Lord Roberts and  his staff on their entry into the place.  Gert-rcialown   'is     a   suburb     lo    the  south east  of  the    town  and  railway  junction  and    General    Roberts  mentions   it.   in   his   message   lo   lhe   war  oflice  probably  because    Blandfonteln  station    Is  further east.       Additional  evidence  that    the    mines  are  intact  comes   in   a  message    received    by  ������  mining  company  here  today  from lis  Johannesburg      representative,    dated  .May 23. via Delagoa Bay which says:  "All  right." >  London, May 30.���������Lord 0 Roberts Is  bivouacking in the suburbs of Johannesburg and intends to make a. victorious entry at noon today. Judging  from his despatch he must have had  private information regarding thc disposition of the garrison in the fort,  as ho does not seem to expect opposition.  Lord Hoberts' cavalry had evidently  followed  on  beyond   Johannesburg.  A  portion   is  understood ,to be al  Zeur-  fontein,    seven    miles   north    of    Johannesburg  and    within    20  miles  of  Pretoria.       Lord     Roberts      although  wilh a broken bridge at Vereeninglng  and   a   wrecked   railway   behind   him  has    somehow    managed  to    get  forward  sufllcient  supplies  for his  large  force,  and  as he has be-iii able  to do  so   much   It   is   considered   possible  he  will be outside of Pretoria on  Friday.  Thc r.ipldlty of his advance is thought  an extraordinary    achievement,    oven  by grudging continental  critics.     Th;  Iluers who were expected to fight along  the line of hills known as Klip iv.vers-  hurg abandoned the eastern end of the  range   near     Lord     Roberts'   advance  liii..\   but   they  stood   their  ground   on  the  extreme   right    near  Van  Wycks-  rust, where tliey mot General French's  turning .movement.      The   fisht   con-  The following is an extract from a  letter received yesterday from South  Africa: "General Sir Charles Parsons  considers our Alberta lads tfte hardiest  and most useful lot of men on, Uie  march he ever met. He told a friend:  'It is a pity they are such damned  thievec. They call it rustling, but  they clean up everything .in sight.  Why I caught my own escort' roping  ostriches, tying them down and stealing the tail feathers, and they had  the cheek to wear thtm before my  eyes.' "  Corporal Harry Baines, of the Second battalion,. C. M. R., "writing from  Victoria West on April 18th to a  friend in the city tells of the march  of the 'Canadians through the Karroo  desert. Lieutenant Inglia with .Corporal Baines and Trooper Jeff Davis,  Trooper Charley Fish, and Trooper  Hutchings were the first to enter  Kenhardt where they secured prisoners and ammunition and took possession in the Queen's name; Mr*- Baines  speaks highly of the_ horses and saddles of the Second contingent. He  says they are th(> best he has seen out  there. His own horse "Old Mac." he  reports in good shape. The only horso  that di-d was" Brown's Bar U buck-  skin. The Alberta bred horses stood  the severe test imposed on them  splendidly and the men were all well  * and anxious to meet the enemy.  Trooper Allan Charles, of the Second  contingent, has also been heard from.  He writes from Victoria West after  the suppression of the rebellion in  West Capo Colony. The Canadians  at the time of writing were about to  advance to the front and were anxious  -to-get-fheir-share--of=the-fighting._Th.!-  country through which they marched  was a miserable one, all sand and  stones, and there were very* few inducements to remain after the war  was over.  George   Lane   has   received   it  letter  from c.v.o of the veterinary stuff _t the  Second Canadian contingent, in which  the following   passage occurs:     "Out  of  thc  10 horses purchased  from  you  only two casualties havo  taken place,  one  dying  of  sunstroke,   and  another  ot dysentery.  Our march   of COO miles  was made under the most unfavorable  conditions   for   horses,  and   I   think  I.  am  not  enlarging on  the  truth  when  I  say that  no  other class of  horses  In   the   world  could   have    stood    the  misery    and    hardships    which      our  North West horses went through sln_2  they'left Halifax.     After 8,000 miles of  sea voyage, without any exercise and  very little feed, a week's rest at Cape  Town  on  a  hot  sandbank,  five  days  packed   up   ln   small   close   cars,   and  then sent away on a 600 mile trip with  poor feed and water and a heavy load.  Still we can muster a larger percentage  of horses  today that are fit  for  duty   than   any  other  mounted  corp������  which   landed   in     South    Africa  this  year.       The   North   West   horses   ara  the best in  the world."   0   The following poem which has ap-  je-.trcd in some of the London.
