Once again on 'f hursdny the Herald  through the telegraphic  service,   the  cost of which it has  maintained since  the war broke out,   hud  the pleasure  of being the moans by which tho   welcome tidings of the relief of Mafeking  was announced to the citizens of   this  loyal und patriotic  town.     The news  was received  at 8:20 a. m. at the time  when   the  express fiom  the we6t was  at  tlie station'.     Instantly   the   good  news flew  from mouth  to mouth and  the town broke out with a display of  bunting,  which  was spread from  end  to end in less   than   an hour.     While  S. L. Saunders was busy arranging tlie  flags in front of Bourne Bros  store he  attracted the attention of W.Pritchurd  Morgan, "a well known member of the  Imperial House of Commons.     On being   informed of tbe occasion for   the  display   Mr.   Morgan   testiflnd   to his  desire to share in the general rejoicing  in a very practical manner by presenting  a  ten   pound  note   ($50)   to Mr.  Saunders to be expended on giving the  children a celebration.     He  also ordered several copies of the  Herald to  be forwarded .to his address in London.  A.   Johnson,   of the Herald, wired to  him at Glacier expressing  the thanks  of the   mayor  and   citizens of Revelstoke    for   his    generous     donation  Preparations were at once started  to  celebrate   the   very   satisfactory   termination of the prolonged and gallant-  defence of Mafeking. by   Col.   Baden-  Powell and his brave soldiers.     H.   J.  Bourne.put   up   the* money to secure  the  services  of   the   band, and Chas.  Lindmurk, as secretary to   the .school  board,  made swift arrangements for  a whole holiday   for the public, school  children.       The  news    was   speedily  conveyed to   the tots   of   the   kindergarten by the rejoicing shouts of their  bigger comrades.   * The   symptons of  revolt became formidable and  fearing  the consequences of an   infant .insurrection  Mrs. Wilks  allowed bur small  cliarges to-participate.in the -holid.iv'.J  The form of the celebration was in  the flrst place a. general  half holiday;  secondly  a universal outburst of the  red, whiteand blue, in flags, streamers,  budges and rosettes on stores,  houses,  horses, locomotives, bicycles, vehicles,  dogs, men, women and childred; thirdly of u parade through the town of the  band,    rifle  company      and    school  children.-    When the children returned to the school house, after receiving  a .capital   patriotic   address from Mr.  Tupping, as a result of Mr. Moig.in's  generous donation 250 bags of oranges,  nuts and candies were distributed   by  the teachers,  assisted  by some of the  ladies.      The Herald   understands  that it it   the   intention to-have  Mr.  Morgan's name placed on a union jack,  which' will be preserved in the  school,  us  u  rememberance  of   the relief of  Makfeking   and   the   flying   visit    to  Revelstoke of the kind provider of the  feast.     Every-child was also provided  with a pretty souvenir of tlie day,   in  the shape, of a piece of  red,  white   or  blue ribbon with the words Mafeking  Relieved,   May   17,   KKKX   pi inted  on  Them.      11   was   a   gle.it"~~diiy'for-th'e"  children and a pleasant celebration for  everyone.     Our hearts in Revelstoke,  fur away though we are.   rejoice with  our   brethren   in    Mafeking.     whose  gulbint defence against overwhelming  udds for all these weary   months   has  added another  page to the honor roll  of the Empire.

The whole career of  Mr.   Mackintosh as an   employer -of  lnbor absolutely shows these charges'  to be without foundation,  and  apart  altogether from what he said on the*  plalfi-om last night there is sufficient  evidence   easily   obtainable   to * prove"  thut throughout liis career, not only  as  a   politician,  but ns a nowspnper'  man, employing labor,* he has always  been ardently in sympathy with union  principles.

REFORM  A LESSON IN  PROTECTION  The speech    of Sir    Henri    Joly do  ii__bi'ni'_re'*ln connection with the proposal- in    parliament ; to ���������   reduce   tho  customs duty on tobacco Is  the newest ���������'testimony   to the. efficiency of pro-,  lection  as a means  of; protecting  industry.

In  1S93  the first year, of the increased customs  ..tax,. - it: was .1,9*19,000, pounds,   and  in  ���������:, 1S99 . 2,500,000   pounds.

Boston Transcript describing the growth of municipal reform in'tit-.''Western States, is  not without interest to Westiorn Canadians who have experienced somewhat similar conditions liv the growtl.  or their municipalities. Until within  a comparatively few years not much  wns heard concerning municipal reform  in the' west,' for the very simple reason that the cities wore so occupied  Willi territorial expansion and efforts  to surpass nearby rivals in extravagant figures as to resources'of various kinds, that they had little time  for.*much else. Consequently political  arfnirs In the cities fell into the bandit  or the spoilsmen. The situation is  somewhat changed now, and we Und  the municipalities dovoling quite ;us  much, attention to reform as their  eastern sister's;' in some places more,  tor whatever Ihey undertake they  carry forward with great energy. The  rise of populism added to the general  discontent or this section; for while  most Populists believed in a change  of conditions, in the*' '..cities, .not" "all.  municipal reformers .-''were, by any  means Populists.  One feature   of municipal reform in  the    west    is    especially    worthy   .of  mention.    Tho    commercial    and mercantile  bodies are  taking active  part  in its . advancement.    In Minneapolis  both the    commercial    club   and    the;  board  of  trade    (as also    the corresponding    bodies./ in   St.     Paul)   have  manifested the   deepest interest in tht  work of improving  the local  government and have cooperated with every/  movement looking toward a: rcalizatlo.v  of  higher  municipal   ideals.  " In   San.  Francisco one: of the    most" energetic  bodies of workers in the cause is the  merclian'ts'    association.      Indeed,    in  nearly  every  western  city,   the  business organizations are at all/times in  readiness / to , "cooperate    with" public,  spirited    citizens ."to" advance "good  government,  :and   already" a   number  have .becomeafaiiated members of the  national" municipal  league./ /;.  /Iowa -is /dotled "over "with" good "gov-.  ernm. nt clubs" and  leagues/of "various  types./ The most*recently effected organization  in  the'stale  is" the" league  of" Iowa municipalities; being a federation of Iowa cities 'and towns "tormeu  for their improvement and control bi  mutual conference and''interchange of  ideas among the: various: city officials;  and   to  -sefure' such : legislation   as ,'li*  necessary or" desirable, for the* bcnelU-  of the'same/ In".Missouri "we iina civ/,  federations in    St..Louis    and Kansa..

The same:  is true, of" Nebraska .outside of: Omaha.  In that city a" municipal league, and a  good    citizenship .: educational"  leagtit*  ��������� t'ook  up   the  work;   but .the   league's  work . was    considerably handicapped  by   the . A. * P.   A.     movement.    /The-  towns and cities of Kansas have displayed a fitful   interest in    municipal  reform/.   In some the enforcement of  .the prohibition ;laws . has ... monopolized  attention;,. . The ���������Christian'* citizenship  league  of Wichta. a short  time since  defeated    the    ."whiskey",   candidates.  It  closed  30' saloons  and   4*7  places  of  ill repute-and   wielded    the balance oi  power. "  Ths Topeka municipal league  maintained its. existence "and not much  more;    although -it    made   'strenuous  efforts to create interest.

Tlie Montana boys, who have a  bench of 100 horses, made a be.  of $100 that they could produce a  broncho that nobody in Alberta could  ride. The bet was promptly taken  and lhe time fixed for Monday evening at 7 o'clock on'the race track.  in order to furnish more entertainment for the public it was arranged  that the cowboys wero to ride sly.  horses out of the Montana bunch:  Six vicious bucket's were selected and  the men from the south pronounced  them the worst of their kind in  Montana.  Ono oi: tho number, an outlaw, was  put forward as'the man killer on  whom the $100 bet was to bo decided  and tlio Yanks were conlldcnt no  Canuck rider could stay on his back  and  live.

London, May 15!���������A special despatch from Lorenzo Marque-', says il  has been reported that a large force  of Cocrs have been captured by the  ���������firiUsh at Mafeking. Pretoria, it is  added, reports on the other band that  Mafeking has not been relieved.  Public interest at Pretoria for the  moment is almost entirely ccntereel  in MnfeUin.*., when flic wife of the  Mayor today received a cablegram  saying that ail was well on Monday.  London.

BadcnrVovi-ell, the British commander  at iUaL'cking, sent lo Lord ��������� Roberts  und or date of May 7. Five days  later the Boers attempted lo storm  the town and it is' possible that they  succeeded, although nothing is known  of iho attack or of Us results, except  through Pretoria sources, which have  no countenance here. The British  relief column is duo,, thave now. Ton  .days ago General Snyman was having difficulty in keeping the burghers togouier, owing to tho approach  ot the British and when tho last  Associated Press despatch left Mafeking on Slay 7, tho Boers had killed on tho previous day one of the  horso guards and captured several of  Colonel' Baden-Powell's few remaining horses. Major _���������*. D. Baillio has  sent Lo the Morning Post from Mafeking, under date ol" May 7, this message: "This morning the Boers attacked us. Result as usual. . There  is an aching void here. Pass the  loaf."  Tho Transvaal army havo taken a  position at Blaauwbaschdoort Pass,  near Heilliron Road ..-Station, 50 miles  north of Kronstadt. its rear guard  is still holding the hills north of the  Walsch river, while the Boer scouts  aro in touch with the British recon-  noitering parties, 20 miles north of  Kronstad. The railway laborers are  hard at work aud. the engineers hope  to have the line repaired within three  clays. Thc prairie- has put on a russet winter coat. Thc nights are bitterly cold, but the days are hot. The  Free Staters arc surrendering in  larger numbers than after the occupation of Bloemfonteiji. One officer  -of���������tho^^^r-ransvaal^i^artillery_i_1Pnys.:_  "There will'be no .serious fighting  this side of Pretoria, as Berenniging,  on the Vaal is indefensible. Heavy  guns arc being mounted at Pretoria  but Generals Botha and Limmer are  asi'esd that ultimate victory is impossible. President Kruger is obstin-  r.te and a. majority of lh-*> Transvaal-  crs hold firmly wilh him." It is estimated that llio Transvaalers can  still muster 30,000 men - on the fighting line.  General Bulloi's advance, as hi3  telegrams indicate was by the instructions of Lord Roberts, and it  will   cease  or  go  forward -  as    Lord  sion of the Kaffir location, from  which point of vantage thty trough,  their guns to bear on thc tov.-n ai  close range. By an adroit move ih<-  ganlaon, despite its attenuated numbers, succeeded in surrounding the  party of Boers who had capture-u  ihe Kaffir location.

Sunday Journal:  To the Editor: I landed in this  country last week, having come from  Cape Town. South Africa. I came by  the way of Liverpool, England, lleiir-  t.hiiL the Irish, my own coiintiymeii.  are raising .money for the Boers in  Providence and vicinity, I desire, to  make a few facts known to them,  through your paper, if you will kindly  let me, ��������� '     ' .'"���������':  I have lived in the Transvaal eight,  years, and I know a few facts about  the Boers, In the first place���������do they  know that an Irishman or any other  man never gets justice from a, Boer in  any court of law iu the Transvaal ? I  will give $1,00*0 to uny man who will  prove that they did within llie lust  five years.  1 will give you a type of the justice:  In 1S05 I was working in Johannesburg. 1 was working in the De Beers  mines, which were owned by Charles.  Rhodes, an Englishman, and Mr. Belt,  a German. At that'time there were  about 30 Irishmen working in tlie  mines.  That year a law was put in force  whereby all children had to go to the  Boer school, and all had to learn  Dutch, Next door to me there lived  a man by the name of Patrick Fahey,  who had three children, two hoys and  a girl. The girl was about 12 and the  boys were younger, so he sent them to  school, and one day, because the girl  could not learn the Dutch, the teacher  struck liet on the head, and through  that blow she went into convulsions  and died. 31 r. Fahey had the teacher  arrested, but he was let oil as the  teacher was a Boe.r. So 31 r. Fahey  would not, let liis hoys go to school  after that. So the Boer police came  to arrest himi.and because he would  not go with them they shot him before  the eyes of his poor wife. He lived  about two hours after lie was shot.  31yself and Mike Carroll went and got  the priest, but'the Boer police would  not let him into the house. This occurred on the 14th day of October.  1805. We called a. meeting nf all the  miners, both Irish, English and Scotch  and we subscribed and got a wood  coffin and buried him decently. We  decided also In let* the English governor at Cape Town know the facts of  the case. So we, did. He sent two  men to investigate it, but through  that 20 of the miners were sent out of  the. country, and all the property,  furniture, and such like the Boers confiscated. Weiliat stayed got togelber  ������11* and sent Mrs Fahey and her  children back lo Ireland.  I can tell you 20 cases similar to the  above, but I think that will be enough  to let you see what the Boers are. I  don't love England ; but I say, give me  English laws as they are in Natal,  where every man has equal lights.  That is what England is fighting for.  There are over 10.000 Irish volunteers  in Natal alone, and we. will fight to  the death to down the cruel B-mrs.  and I appeal lo all Irishmen to .help  the widows and orphans of the Irish  soldiers who fell in battle. I have  come here on a little business, and I  aiTrgiiih"gJt"o~C'ipe~Towii-iiext^w-eek-i(*i  fight the Boers and avenge poor Pat.  Fahey., So, at the last, I say, God  bless old Ireland and her soldiers, who  are lighting for a good and just cause.  Daniel Mai-ley.
