 *������-' ���<-.  DAILY  EDITION   BY  MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH  YEAR.  SALISBURY'S   PLAIN   TALK I l_l.?.oC th�� ,bl00��* ?�� his  NELSON":  FRIDAY MORNING JULY G ]!)00  ft"  On Missionary Effort.  The full text of* lord Salisbury's  recent speech mado at the Bicentenary meeting of the society for  the propagation  of tho gospel in  foreign  parts  is  contained iu  the  most recent batch  of English exchanges, and is indeed a notable deliverance.    His lordship pointed out  that  government assistance  given  to missionary societies carried with  it certain drawbacks, and continued:  In the church of old lime great  evangelists   went    forth   to   their  work, exposed themselves to fearful  dangers,  suffered   all   the   terrors  that the world could inflict in support of )the   doctrine -which  they  preached and the  morality  whicli  t hey practised.    If- an evangelist,  with the Apostolic Boniface or Columbia, were preaching in the Middle  Ages,   ho faced the difficulties,  he  underwent    the    martyrdom,    he  braved  the  torments to which he  was exposed, and the whole of the  great moral and spiritual influence  of  his self-devotion acted without  hindrance upon the people whom he  addressed.    But, now, if a Boniface  or  Columbia  is   exposed  to   these  martyrdoms, the result is an appeal  to the consul and the mission of the  gunboat.    Unfortunately, that cannot  be helped, and though it is a  blame to nobody, though it is far,  indeed, from being a blame to our  devoted missionary, and though I  cannot admit that it is a blame to  the secular government  by whom  their fate is avenged, still it does  diminish the purely spiritual aspect  and action   of christian  teaching.  It does give a man the opiJortuuity  and temptation of attaching a different meaning to that teaching, and  to suspect it of objects which.are  far, indeed, away from the thoughts  of those  who   urge  them,   (Hear,  hear.)    They have a proverb in the  East:    "First the missionary, then  the consul, aud then the  general,"  fid that, as a matter of fact, has  vfco often been the case.    That is to  say, itjs true, and^it,,could hardly,  be "avoided",   that    those   nations  wliich are the most active in their  missionary  work are also marked  by a constant  extension  of   their  frontiers.    This caunot be avoided.  You must accept it; but do not'hide  from yourselves that it is a great  ' hindrance to your work, and that,  while secular results of this character   follow   from    the   results   of  christian teaching, a christian faith,  a christian cross does not shine upon  tho peoples of the world  with the  unblemished splendor with which it  shone in olden times.  Just look at this Chinese matter.  Have you observed that all the  people slaughtered aro christians?  Do you imagine they are slaughtered simply because the Chinese dislike their religion? There is no nation in the world so indifferent ou  tho subject of religion as the Chinese. It is because^tliey and other  nictiohT^have  got-tHe idea that  missionary work is, a mere instrument of the secular government in  order to achieve the objects it has  in view. It is a most dangerous  and terrible snare. I would not say  it is utterly unjust, that no one can  be more devoted, no one more free  from secondary motives, than the  missionaries who leave these shores.  (Cheers.)  But the fact is that it does not  diminish the reality of the danger  which arises from its suspicion���  the suspicion whose operation you  . now see in such terrible and bloodstained  characters at the" moment  that I speak to you.   And I may  attempt to point the moral, and  that is, that caution and prudence,  within the due limits of devotion  and enthusiasm, are the duties of  missionaries   in   a   foreign  land���  (hear, [hear)���who    not "only   are  preaching the gospel, but are also  representing to the. eyes of the inhabitants to whom they preach the  character and the aims of the people  from whom  they come?    It is a  high duty with  them   to temper  their   enthusiasm   with   christian  prudence. ,  Remember that in old times if an  evangelist gave himself up to martyrdom he derived the crown for  which he looked", and he did not injure the cause that he was preaching, or those whose interests he represented. But now any man who  so conducts himself that his zeal  leads to martyrdom, at least incurs  this danger���that he will expose  the lives of those to whom he has  preached, and, what is probable,  perhaps, in its material results, even  worse, that he will cause the shed-  own conn-  I trymen, of the soldiers and the sail-  | or.s���'by whom his countrymen are  defended, and he will bo forced, for  tho sake of their om'h fellow countrymen, in order to avoid similar or  even worso outrages in tho future,  to enter upon hostile and military  proceedings, so as to avenge their  death and to prevent those outrages  being   repeated.    It   is   a   terrible  dilemma.    TJiey cannot  renounce;  they cannot abandon;they cannot  even bo lukewarm iu the commission  thej1" receive.     On   tho   other  hand,  it is a  real danger  that,  if  they  do   not  observe  the   utmost  caution, they may cause the loss of  many lives, and they may attach to  the religion which  they desire to  preach the discredit of being an instrument of territorial greed, and  the weapon iu the warfare which  one secular power wages   against  another.    (Hear, hear.)   They run  the risk, not of their own lives���for  they would care little of that���but  they run   the risk   of   producing  terrible events on a gigantic scale,  because   their. position   is   closely  mixed    up   with   that   of   secular*  powers, and   because   the   secular  powers, in justice to their own subjects, cannot allow their deaths to  go unavenged.  May I say one word more in the  samo  line   upon   a   matter  which  touches us very closely, and that is  the  position   which  this   country,  and those who represent its moral  and spiritual forces, occupy- to those  great    Mohammedan    populations  which,  in  so   many  parts of   the  world, come into close connection  with our rule?   ]\Tow, I have pointed out to you how difficult it is to  persuade   other   nations  that   the  missionary is not an instrument of  the secular government.    It is, unfortunately, more difficult in the  case of the Mohammedan.   He cannot believe that those who preach  the  gospel agaiust the religion of  Mohammed are not incited thereto,  and protected therein and governed  iu their action by the secular government of England, with which he  contests.     Many   warnings   have  reached me.    These; .warnings are  always 'exaggerated,^and I do^jiot  ivttach"much-;imporfcance -to them?  But," still,  careless", action  on  the  part  of British missionaries  in a  Moharamedau country, without any  . moral fault on their part, may light  a'flame which it will be hard for  them to suppress.   And remember,  with'those Mohammedans you are  not   dealing    with men  who   are  wholly evil.    You are dealing with  men who have a religion���erroneous  in many respects, terribly mutilated in others, but a religion that has  a portion of our own embodied in  its system.    You are dealing with a  force   which a   powerful,   though  mistaken,  theism  gives to a vast  population.   You  will not convert  them ; though I do not say you will  never do so.   God knows, I hope  that is far from our feaiv''(Hear,  hear.)   But,'dealing with the events  of the moment, I think your chances  of conversion, as proved by our ex-  =perience,-=are=infinitely=fsmall-;=and=  the danger of creating great peril  and producing serious convulsions,  may be, of causing bloodshed, which  shall be a'serious and perrnanen't  obstacle to that christian religion  whicli we desire above all things to  preach���is   a   danger   which   you  must bear in  mind.   I   will  only l  urge you to remember, when the j  ous     daily   criminal     executions,  by   order of   the    viceroy,   show  his   realization   of    the     serious  condition    of    affairs,    and     his  firm intention, to prevent trouble.  He is threatened by the mob  with  assassination if he should leave the  city.    Well-to-do residents have offered Li Hung Chang five million  taels ($3,500,000) for the purpose of  organizing municipal guards in the  city.   The viceroy appreciates the  confidence   and   gratitude   of   the  people, and promises to do his ut-  .most to maintain order.   The majority of the foreign   women   and  children have left Hong Kong for  Macao.  ANTI-IMPERIAL  PLATFORM  Dewet Still at Large.  London,   July   (5.���The    cordon  round general Dewet appears still  to be wide, at least he has not yet  been   cornered.     Dispatches from  the front, except the official ones,  deal with trifles or vague probabilities.       The   Daily   Telegraph's  correspondent at Lorenzo Marquez  attempted to interview president  Kruger on July 4th, but he deputed  state secretary Reitz to talk.   The  secretary said: "We do notheed^to  discuss peace.     President Kruger  wishes through me to repeat what  he has said over and over and over  again.   The South African republic  will tight for independence as long  as 500 burghers remain alive, and  even then will continue to" fight.  Such is our decision."  Democrats in .Convention.  Kansas City, July 5.���The following are tli-) chief parts of international interest in the Democratic  platform   which.was adopted   by  acclamation: "We, the representatives of the Democratic party of  the   United   States, assembled   in  convention  ou the anniversary of  the adoption .�� the declaration of  independence, do reaffirm our faith  in that immortal proclamation of  the inalienable rights of man, and  our allegiance to 'the constitution  framed in harmeby therewith by  the   fathers    of   ;the    republican  party.

'      ',-."'  TWO GREAT CANADIAN BANKS  Likely to Consolidate.  It is  reported that negotiations  are pending for the consolidation of  the Canadian Bank of Commerce,  whose head office is in Toronto, and  the   Bank   of    British    Columbia,  whose head office in Canada is in  Victoria.    The combined capital of  the two banks is over $9,000,000,  and they have branches in  every  province in Canada.    Vancouver is  tbe only place in which both banks  have branches, and if the consolidation   is made, the Bank of  Commerce branch there will probably  be closed, and the premises of the  Bank of British Columbia occupied.  iItJs,notJ��nown=what=name-will-be=  adopted   by the new bank.   It is  not likely there will be any great  change in the staff of any of the  branches in British Columbia.  the constitution  the letter.  "We declare again that all govern  ments instituted among men derive  their just powers .from the consent  of the governed,^ that any government not based upon the consent of  the governed is a tyranny, and that  to impose upon any people a government of force is to substitute the  methods of imperialism for those of  a republic.  "We hold that '.the- constitution  follows the flag: :ahd denounce the  doctrine that an "executive or con-'  gress deriving their existence aud I  their powers frora/the constitution  can exercise lawful authority beyond it, or in violittion of it.     We  assert .that iio nation can long endure a.half republic and half empire, and; we warn the American  people that-imperialism abroad will  lead   quickly .and-,inevitably,   to  despotism at home'.;, "    -  "Believing in^tliese,.fundamental  principles, we denounce the Porto  Rico law, enacted^by the republican congress, against. the protests  and opposition of $ the democratic  minority, as boldC;,viola-.  .tion' of the nation's organic, law  and a .flagrant ..breach..of ,the na-;. j-Jt'iruposesiipou_  -_.itr_jwpi\--orirov_o^i_ieo^~gbxrern-.  ment without -their . consent, and  action without representation. It  dishonors the American people by  repudiating a solemn'pledge made  in their behalf by. the commanding  general of our army, which the  Porto Ricans welcomed to a peaceful and unresisted occupation of  their lands. It doomed to poverty  and distress a people whose helplessness appeals with-peculiar force  to'our justice and magnanimity.  "In this, the first act of its imperialist program the republican party seeks to commit the United  States to a colonial policy inconsistent with republican institutions  and condemned by the 'supreme  court in numerous decisions. We  demand the. prompt aud honest*  fulfillment of our pledge to the Cuban people and the world, that the  United States has no disposition  nor^in tenti6u~to^T-exereii��i���sover-^  eignty, jurisdiction or. control over  expenditure of many  millions, has already cost more than  any possible pro7it that could accrue from the entire Philippine  trade for years to come. Furthermore, when trade is extended at  the expense of liberty, the price is  always too high.  "We   are   not opposed to territorial expansion, when it takes in  desirable   territory   which can be  erected into'sta'tes  in the union,  and whose people are  willing and  fit to   become   American citizens.  We favor expansion by every peaceful and legitimate means, but we  are   unalterably   opposed   to    the  seizing   or   purchasing   of distant  islands to be governed outside, the  constitution, and whose people are  never to become citizens.  "We are in favor of extending  the republican influence among the  nations, but believe that influence  should be extended not by force  and violence, but through the persuasive powers of an honorable example.     The importance of other  questions now pending before the  American people, is in no wise diminished, and the Democratic party  takes no backward steps from its  position on them, but the burning  issue of imperialism, growing out  of" the Spanish war, involves the  very existence of the republic and  the destruction of our free institutions.  PRICE FIVE GENTS  "We regard it as the paramount  issue of the campaign. ��� The declar-  the Republican platform J  maintain a bi-metallic price level,  and as part of such system the immediate restoration of the free and  unlimited coinage of silver and gold  at the present legal ratio of 16 to 1  without waiting for the consent of  other nations.  "We denounce the currency bill  enacted at the last session of Congress as a step forward in the Republican policy which aims to discredit the sovereign right , of the  national government to issue   all  money, whether coin'or paper, and  to bestow on the national banks  the'power to issue and control the  volume of paper money for their  own benefit.   A permanent national  bank currency secured  by govern-  men t bon ds ni us t ha ve a perman en t  debt to rest upon, and if the bank  currency is to increase with population and business, the debt must  also   increase;.-      The   Republican  currency   scheme   is    therefore, a  scheme for fastening upon the taxpayers   a   perpetual and growing  debt.  "We are opposed to this private  corporation ��� paper, circulated as  money but without legal tender  qualities, and demand the retirement of national bank notes as fast  as this government's paper or silver  certificates can be substituted for  them.  - "We favor the immediate construction or ownership and control  of the Nicaragua canal by the  United States, and* we denounce'the  insincerity- of  the   plank - in the  TERRIBLE TALE OF BLOOD  Empress is Cunning.

It   is  what millions of Europeans have  fled from in Europe.    It means imposing   upon   our   people a   large  standing   army,   and   unnecessary  burdens of taxation and a con stan t  menace to their liberty."  A small  standing army   and a   well   disciplined state militia are sufficient in  time of peace.   The  republic  has  no place for a vast military service  and conscription.

Berlin,  July 5.���The Deutsche  Tages Zeitung prints a special from  Chefoo saying   that   the   Chinese  I banner troops   seized on Monday  night the Pei Ho bridge, securing  the line of   retreat of the"; inter-'  national, troops to Taku after repeated fierce attacks, in which the  Chinese lost hundreds.     They next  drove off the Russians from their  station outside of Tien Tsin after a  two      days'      battle,     and     encircled the concession which their  artillery     is     now     dominating.  The Chinese minister is still here.  He   told   a representative of   the  Associated Press today that he did  not know where the empress dowager and the tsung li yamen now  were.     He   thinks it likely   that  prince Tuan has seized the throne,  especially as the prince has legitimate   claims   thereto,   his   father  being appointed emperor.  Oregon Floated.  Washington, July 5.���The navy  department this afternoon received  news concerning the Oregon which  caused secretary Long, assistant-  secretary Hackett and all the naval  officers who heard it to rejoice. The  news was contained in the following  telegram: "Chefoo, July 5.���To  secretary of the navy, Washington.  Wilde has announced that the  Oregon was floated this afternoon.  The pumps control the water.    She  the  the island of Cuba, except for its  pacification.  "The   war   ended'   nearly    two  years ago, profound peace reigns  over all, while Republican carpet  bag officials plunder  its revenues  and exploit the colonial theory to  the disgrace of the American people.   We condemn   and   denounce  the Philippine policy of the present  administration.     It  has   involved  the republic in   unnecessary war,,  sacrificed the lives of many of our  noblest sons and placed the United  States, previously known and applauded    throughout    the    whole  world as the champion of freedom,  in the false and un-American position of crushing with military force  the efforts of our former allies to  achieve   liberty   and    self-government.  "The Filipinos cannot be citizens  without endangering our civilization. They cannot be subjects  without imperilling our 'form of  government, and as we are not  willing to surrender our civilization  we favor an immediate declaration  of the nation's purpose to give  the Filipinos first a stable form of  government, second independence  and third protection from outside  interference, such as has been given  for nearly a century to the Republics of Central and South America."  "The greedy commercialism  which dictated the Philippine policy of the republican administration attempted to justify it with  the plea that it will pay, but even  this sordid and unworthy plea fails  when brought to the test of facts.  The war of criminal aggression  against   the Philippines   entailing  "the United States will  ever be cherished in the patriotic  hearts of a free people. Such organizations are'ever intelligent and  ready for duty. When for the first  time in our history and coeval with  the Philippines, there has been a  wholesale departure from our time-  honored and approved system of  volunteer organization. We denounce it as un-American, un-demo-  cratic and un-republican, and as a  subversion of the ancient and fixed  principles of a free people.  "Private monopolies are indefensible   and   intolerable.     They destroy competition, control the price  of all material and of the finished  product,  thus   robbing   both  producer and consumer.     They lessen  the employment of labor and arbitrarily'fix the the terms aud conditions thereof, arid deprive individual energy and small capital of  tlieir opportunity for betterment.  They are the most efficient means  yet devised for appropriating the,  fruits of industries and  benefitting  the few at the expense of the many,  and unless their insatiate greed is  checked all wealth will be aggregated in a few hands and the republic destroyed.  "We favor such an enlargement  of the scope of an inter-state commerce law as will enable the commission to protect individuals and  communities from discriminations,  and the republic from unjust and  unfair transportation rates.  "We affirm the principles of the  national Democratic platform as  adopted at Chicago in 1890, and we  reiterate the demand of that platform for an American financial system made by the American people  themselves which shall restore and  fote treaty as a surrender of Ameri  can rights and interests not to be  tolerated by American people.

London,   July 6.-4:30 a.m.-Li  Hung Chang has sent 5000 men  to  occupy the Bogue fort at the moi.tii  of the Canton river.     The   Shanghai   correspondent   of   the   Daily  Telegraph wires under date of July  4th:     "Uan   Shika,    governor   of  Shan Tung, telegraphs the French  consul here that   prince   Tuan   is  preparing  an  edict,  ordering   the  extermination   of   all     foreigners.  This is   probably intended  to prepare the public for the worst news.  Chinese cumulative reports, which  are generally believed here, declare  that   all the   foreigners in   Bekin  have been massacred.  Chinese Restriction Bill Passed.

Commissioner     Senkler's  friends had unlimited confidence in  mm ana tneir conuaence was uoc  abused, as advices from Dawson confirm the report that commissioner  Seukler came through the examination without a spot.  Since .the Montreal "Gazette referred to Hon. Clifford Sif ton as "a  leading member of the government"  the Manitoba Free Press has been  incapacitated for duty from very  joy. Clifford Sifton has been in  public life for several years, but the  present is the first instance hi which  he has been mentioned as a leader,  and in which no demand has been  made for the appointment of a  royal commission.  The remarks of lord Salisbury,  touching the responsibilities of the  missionaries in China, which created  so much comment in church circles  =throughont=="En^la=irdr=_appear   irT  another column.    It is not difficult  to see that Britain's  premier regards the present trouble in China  as   largely  a   revolt   against   the  missionary,   and   though   a   plain  statement of the case   may have  shocked the church dignitaries, it  nevertheless does not alter the circumstances.   Should it be demonstrated that for the'future, mission-^  ary effort is to be resisted with  force hy the Chinese, what position  will the church take?   Will it attempt to revive the religious wars  of forgotten ages; or will it allow  the Chinese to grub along as best  they can in this world, and take  .their chances in the next?  from ruinous conflicts between capital and labor he could not have  done better than enact the New  Zealand legislation, which it has  been demonstrated secures' the  end supposed to be desired.  When the postmaster-general promises to introduce legislation to prevent strikes aud then brings down  a. scheme for giving effect to voluntary arbitration, it shows that he  is trying to pack water on both  shoulders. British Columbia some  years ago had an experience with  an Optional Conciliation aud Arbitration Act. Ib was introduced by  the Davie government, on the eve  of a general election, as a bait for  the labor vote. It may have served  this purpose, but it served no other.

ISTDIAN     T&0OP3    FOR    CHI MA:  Tho   Indian  army  has  not liad  long to wait before being called on  to fender help to the British empire.  TJie expedition to China  a  slight solace  to it for  having  to  mark time while the  game of war  Avas hotly played in  South Africa.  Tlio expeditionary force,'Avhich is  to be genfc  out,  Avill  number 5000  men.of  all arms.     With the ex-  c ption   of   the    field   battery of  artillery,   ifc   consists   entirely   of  native regiments.      But these regiments have in  their  ranks  many  races and many  sects  and  creeds ;  ���slalu*art   Sikhs,   Rajputs  of   high  lineage,   and   the  bluest  blood of  Hindustan; fiery Pathans from tho  Avild border of Afghanistan ; mild-  eyed Tamils aud Telingas from  the  lice-flats of Madras ;   Sikh,  Hindu,  . and Mohammedan���ay, and Roman  Catholic, for Madras Sappers usually  . profess this creed, though now and  again aProtestant,a Nonconformist;,  , and even  an American  Methodist  finds his AA*ay into the ranks of these  eplendid Indian engineers.  This contingent is thoroughly representative of India as a Avhole.  Its departure Aviil stir up a spirit of  envy throughout the native army ;  it Avill start multitudinous prayers  for a large development of the Chi-  nuse crisis and the consequent need  for mauy more troops.  In 1800-02 twelve regiments of  ?iative infantry sailed from India  for the far east, compared Avith five  on this occasion, and tho two regiments of cavalry as against one. To  put it roughly, the Indian contingent in the early sixties Avas tAvice  .as-large as ou this .occasion. ��� Bufc  -five only seem to be at the beginning  of the China trouble. The Indian  army"is a more efficient and a larger  fighting machine than 40 years ago.  Moreover, the Indian Empire today  marches for thousands of-miles wifch  the Chinese Empire. Raihvays  have advanced through Upper  Burma to Avithin a little distance of  the Chinese boundary, so should  the rebellion spread, Britain's army  in the East will play a large part in  quelling it.  But Avill India also havc to pay?  Before tho first transport drops  down tho tide that question will be  raised. India has been harshly  treated iu the past, and iu these  daj's of plague and famine, Avhile  she can spare mpn, she cannot  spire treasure.  Of the regiments selected for service in China, two^. particularly distinguished themselves iu the Pa-  than revolt of 1897. It AA'as the 1st  Sikhs avIio furnished J^._Gee,__the_  "political-officer, Avith an escort on  thab ill-fated visit to the Tochi  valley, Avhen the party Avere am  buscaded as they sat at lunch, and*  'would haA'C annihilated but for the  cool courage displayed by the native officers, every European officer  having been shot down. Tho 1st.  Sikhs belongs to the Punjab Frontier force, It has only four companies of Sikhs; two companies being  composed of Pathans, oue of Dogras  or hill Rajputs, and one of Punjabi  Mohammedans.  The 24th infantry, Avhich is recruited in exactly the same Avay as  the 1st Sikhs, formed part of tho  famous garrison of 'the Malakand.  Of its Pathan companies the story  ia told that Avhen the little force  was in tbe most desperate straits  tho tribesmen shouted to their fellow-tribesmen to lay doAvn their  arms. "Certainly," was, the reply  from within the wall's; "come and  fefcke the rifles from our hands."  Tho tribesmen, rejoicing at their  treachery, rushed gaily in, to be  met with withering" volleys and  scornful cheers as the Pathans of  the 24 th infantry blazed into the  brown.  The doctor of the regiment is  major Whitchurch, V. C. He won  the Bronze Cross at the siege of  Chitral, when, after a sally, he carried home under heavy fire a  Avounded comrade on his shoulders,  The 1st Bengal Lancers, formerly  JSkJLUiiisr's Irregular Horse, is recruited entirely from Mohammedan's. Its honorary colonel is the  duke of York. It last saw service  in Afghanistan. The Bombay regiment is raised mainly in Rajpu,-  -fcami, while the First Madras Pip-  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. 0., and Dawson City, N. W. T.  neers obtains its men from the  south of the Peninsula. The latter  regiment Avas first raised as long  ago as 175S. The 3Iadras Sappers  is a famous corps of engineers, in  Avhich families, generation after  generation, haA'e enlisted. At the  building of bridges, the making of  roads, the raising of forts it is unequalled. It can handle a rifle  Avith pluck. There is no regiment  wifch a finer record in the Indian  Army List.  The First Madras Pioneer are stationed at Bangalore; the First  Sikhs at-.Kohat, and the Punjaub  frontier. From Kohat to Bangalore  is a similar distance as from Edinburgh to Gibraltar; similar, too, is  the difference in climate, also in the  breed of men. So it can be understood that the Indian army is not  as homogeneous- as the British  army. But it always fights in  khaki.   And it always fights  well.  BAD  PLACE FOR  SETTLERS.  .Julian Ralph contributes to the  Daily Mail some warnings to those  avIio intend to emigrate to South  Africa.    He says:  I fear that most of those men  will regret having ever asked even  tho barest living of South Africa.  Although the most popular sayings  about that unattractive region are  such as to deter immigration, the  idea that fortunes aro to be made  there by mon without Capital remains firmly rooted in many minds.  Where the land yields  best it is  mainly used   for  the  breeding of  sheep, horses, goats and ostriches.  It is only where water is abundant  that avc see crops being raised, and  they are grown in  small  plots, for  Avater in  South  Africa has   been  termed  "a curio."    To be strictly  just,     there     is      a      reasonably  rich   region  in  that   part  of   the  Cape Colony Avhich is called the Hex  River country.   Wheat, and fruit  and the vine  flourish iu  that section, the pasturage is good,  genuine farming is carried on there, and  tho people are prosperous.   But the  region offers no  chance  for. immigrants. ,. The land is all  taken up,  and held.--at a very high price, and  those who own  it,  especially   the  dominant Dutch, Avill not sell.    Instead they want, more acres,  even  though they cannot till.what they  haA'e���for the Boer is a land-loving,  land-proud mortal,  who estimates  his social position aud his degree of  ��� content by the number of his acres.  There   is   good   grain-producing  soil iii.the eastern  part of the Orange River Colons', and the ravages  of tho Avar may send a feAA'���a A'ery  feAV���a very few���of those farms  into the market, but the price  Avill  be beyond the purse of the average  fortune-seeker.  -There is  not, and  will not be, any of this land to be  picked up on  Avhat is  called a settler's claim, i. e., freo to Avhosoever  will build on it and��i  ' "Sn the Transvaal, likewise, there  are good belts and desert belts, and  there is plenty of umvorked land, I  belicveriii"the-dry-and_hiily_upp"er_  imperial Bank of Canada  HEAD  OFFICE.

If any man thinks to find neAV  gold or diamond mines, he may as  Avell be told that the chances of  that are practically equal to his  chances of having at his disposal  the time, money and expert know-  ledge which the great mining corporations have utilized in studying  the entire country, and in taking  liens or paying yearly premiums  for the first right to work such  soils when they need or desire to  do so.  The nearest thing to a gold mine  that remains open to new-comers  in the greater part of those hew  colonies is the ostrich; at least so I  Avas informed by a great many  shrewd and siiccessf ul men who live  iu Natal, the Orange River Colony  and the Transvaal. But breeding  ostriches requires money���for, the  land and the birds���to start with.  And one . must know or learn the  methods by which'-'a profit is to be  had in that industry. You cannot  raise ostriches as you take a snap  shot photograph���by pressing a  button and letting nature do the  rest; . .-'������':- :'"/  In the army I found so many  young men���especially among, the  Australians and (feAver) Canadians  ���Avho talked-of remaining in South;  Africa, that I made it my business  Avhile I was Cape Town, Kimberley  and Bloemfontein to ask the leading  men for their knowledge and 'opinions as to the inducements, the  country offers to immigrants. It  may have merely happened so, but  I did not meet a man who favored  the coming of a large number.-, of  neAV settlers. All who-were of British blood wished for more men of  their own race there^-in "numbers  sufficient to outvote the Dutch,but  they could not promise the new-;  comers a living. It is as true as  when Mr. Bryce wrote i,fc,' that  South Africa is "a vast: solitude  with a few oases' of population,"^  and that this is due;td^"its. scanty  means of sustaining life, and its  f jav openings for industry, unaided  by capital.  said place of payment shall be designated by the  said debentures, and shall have attached to them  coupons for the payment of interest, and the signatures to the interest coupons may bo either  written/stamped, printed or lithographed.  4.
