NELSON:  MONDAY MOKNING AUGUST 20 J 900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  W  SITUATION STILL SERIOUS  Latest Chinese News.  London, August 20.���4 a. ni.���  Rear admiral Bruce's report of the  continuation of fighting in Pekin  puts a more serious aspect upon the  Chinese situation than was generally expected here. It appears  effectually to dispose of all statements that the empress dowager  had fled, although circumstantial  accounts of her departure continue  to come from Shang-Hai.  J)espilo their defeat the Chinese  nre apparently resolved to make a  desperate struggle, not only in their  ancient capital but also in other  parts of the empire. Chang Chi  Tung, viceroy at Hankow, and Liu  Kunyi, viceroy at Nankin, according to advices from Shang-Hai,  have threatened the consuls that if  the person of the empress dowager  is not respected they will withdraw  from their present friendly attitude.  Another Shang-Hai despatch announces the death of Li Ting, Heng  Cheng and Chang Lui Lin in the  fighting before Pekiu.  The mandarins in the southern  provinces, according to a dispatch  to the Daily Express from Hong  Kong, have issued ah important  proclamation recognizing the capture of Pekin as a just punishment  of reactionary officials, aud warning the people not to interfere with  foreigners, but also pointing out  that the sole object of the powers  should be the punishment of the  Boxers and then the restoration of  peace, confining, however, their  operations to the north.  Emperor Nicholas has wired to  general Linevitch, commander of  the Russian troops in the province  of Pe Chi Li, congratulating him  heartily upon the rapid capture of  Pekin and bestowing upon him the  third class order of St. George." The  Russian emperor also thanks vice-  admiral Alexieff and tho heroic  Siberian troops.  General Grotokoff, Russian commander of the. Amur government,  reports to the Russiau war office  that Chingan pass was captured on  -August Kith after a bloody battle,  in which the Chinese suffered heavily, losing four or five guns. The  Russian cavalry were iu pursuit of  the enemy.  The principal Russian papers,  notably the Novoc Vremyn, commenting upon the victory of Pekiu,  declare that Russia should go no  further in the participating in common armed intervention, but should  limit her military action to the  frontier and the Manchurian railroad.  in the plot to kidnap lord Roberts,  was concluded today. Lieutenant  Cordna's counsel admitted that the  accused was guilty of breaking his  parole and of attempting to plan a  conspiracy, but assorted, that the  attempt was a failure. Counsel  also maintained that Gano suggested the plot and egged on the  prisoner. On these grounds ho  asked the court to find that the  charges had not been proved, and  begged its mercy for his client.  Gano, who is said to be an American by birth, denied having suggested the plot. Counsel for the  prosecution will sura up tomorrow.  Taking Stringent Measures.  Pretoria, August 19.���Lord  Roberts is issuing new severe and  rigorous orders rescinding the ones  previously issued. Lord Roberts'  proclamation, after reciting the  fact that many have broken the  oath to maintain neutralUy_and_  ~~-thTit~tlie_leniency extended to the  burghers is not appreciated, warns  all who break their oath that in  the future they will be punished by  death, imprisonment or fine. He  declares that all burghers in dis-.  tricts occupied by the British,  except those who take the oath*  will be regarded as prisoners of  war and transported, and that  buildings on farms., where the  enemy or his scouts are harbored  will be liable to be razed.  How They Were Caught.  London, August 20.���The Rome  correspondent of the Daily Mail  says the arrest of Marsca and Guida  in New York arose out of some letters received at Bressi's lodgings  " subsequent to the assassination of  King Humbert. One of these,  dated July 25th and signed  "Mabor," urged Bressi to commit  the crime, also urging Marsca and  Guida to do their duty toward  president McKiniey. Marsca is  known to the Italian police as a  most fanatical anarchist.  Indefinitely Postponed.  Owing to the sudden illness of  their leading man, the engagement  here of the Clara Hanmer Dramatic  Company, which was to have opened  at the Opera House-tonight, has  been indefinitely postponed. The  company remains in Rossland for a  few days,  Plot to Kidnap Roberts.  Pretoria, August 19.���The case  of the defense in the trial of lieutenant Cordua of the Staats artillery, charged with being concerned  Pretoria, August 19.���General  Dewet appeared yesterday at North  Commando Nek, held by General  Baden-Powell, and sent in a flag of  truce, asking for the surrender of  the British .force. General Baden-  Powell replied asking what terms  Dewet was prepared to offer. Dewet is evidently moving eastward.  [This is probably the foundation  for the Delagoa Bay rumor that  Dewet had captured 4000 British,  but there is nothing in today's- or  yesterday's dispatches to indicate  that Baden-Powell surrendered.  Editor.]  Empress Dowager Detained.  ���Washington, August 19.���The  navy department has received the  following telegram: " Che-Poo,  August 19.���The telegraph line to  Pekin is interrupted. Information  from Japanese sources states that  the empress dowager 'has been detained by prince Yung-Ede, in the  inner city which is being bombarded  by the allies. Chaffee reports that  he entered the legation grounds on  the evening of the 14th. Eight  were wounded during the day's  fighting. Otherwise all are well  (signed) Remey."  Chaffee's Despatch.  Washington, August 19.���The  war department has received the  following despatch: " Che-Foo,  August 19���Pekin, August 15.���We  entered the legation grounds at 5  o'clock last night with the 14th and  a light battery. Eight were  wounded during the day's lighting,  otherwise all are well (signed)  Chaffee."  AFFAIRS IN THE TRANSVAAL  Boers? Retiring to Barberton.  London, August 19.���Ifc seems  fchat the operations in South Africa  may now be chiefly confined to two  distinct quarters. Dewet and  Delarey have wide spaces of the  western Transvaal and the  Bechuanaland frontier to roam over,  and as the British hold on these  districts, whicli were supposed to  be subjugated, is extremely precarious, they are probably gaining  recruits as they go along. On the  other side, president Kruger and  general Botha and the main Transvaal field force, now said to be about  1000 strong with ninety guns, will  establish himself iu Barberton, the  mountainous area between Swaziland and the Portugese frontier at  at Koomatipoort.  Buller with the Natal army is  moving against them from the  south, and French and others are  coming from the Pretoria-Johannesburg line on the west; but Barberton is in a very broken, rugged  country, with more formidable  heights and passes even than the  region around Ladysmith and Dundee. It is suitable for cattle,.and,  till the rainy season comes on, it is  healthier than the lower veldt.  The correspondent of - a- news  agency who was.taken.prisqner and  kept for some time:at Nodjt'gedachfc  says that the fighting burghers are  confident of tlieir ability to hold  out in the Barberton range for  months, even if their supplies from  Delagoa Bay are cut off. The correspondent himself, who is no partisan of the Boers, thinks that they  may continue to make a good fight  for some time to come, though  eventually they will be compelled  to yield from sheer exhaustion and  failing numbers.  The few military men left in  London are full of admiration for  Dewet, in whom they admit the  Boers have found a leader of light  troops of exceptional ability. His  march across the Free State from  Bethlehem to the Vaal and onward,  from the river to Rustenburg is one  of tho finest performances of the  kind in modern campaigns.  Dewet Summons Baden-Powell.   ANNUAL SHOOT OF GUN CLUB  Results of Events.  The annual matches of the Nelson Gun Club took place on Saturday at the foot of Stanley street.  The light was bad and frequent  showers made good shooting an impossibility. Most of the events  were keenly contested although the  scores were uniformly low.  In the Corby cup event for the  handsome silver trophy which will  belong to the member who secures  it twice out of three times, the  honors were carried off by Clarence  D. Goepel with 15 kills out of 20  birds. Dr. Hall, who held the cup  last year, was second in the competition with P. Nelson third.  In the match for the president's  medal, presented by Dr. Hall,  George Steele and Charles Matthews  tied for the first place. They shot  off the tie, Matthews winning the  medal by one point.  Dr. Hall won the j)atron's medal,  a handsome gold locket, presented  by James Lawrence.  The other events resulted as follows:  First sweepstake���Dr. Hall, P.  Nelson, H. W. F. Pollok.  Miss-and-out���George Steele, P.  Nelson.  Second sweepstake���H. W.' F.  Pollok, C. D. Goepel.  The club will practice weekly at  the traps until further notice on  Friday evening, beginning at 7  o'clock.         "  LATEST PEKIN DESPATCHES  Detention of Empress Dowager.  Washington, August. 19.���From  general Chaffee today the war department received official confirmation of the fall of Pekin and - the  rescue of the besieged legationers.  The despatch of the American  commander,was not long and* contained few .details. His lasfctele-  -gram to\the. government,- prior- to  the receipt of today's advices, was  dated August 11 at Matow, almost  thirty miles from Pekin. The explanation of his silence is suggested  in advices received by the navy  department today from admiral  Remey, who, telegraphing from  Taku on the 18fch, says thafc the  telegraph line between that point  and Pekin is interrupted.  The cablegram from admiral  Remey contains some important information not mentioned by general  Chaffee. He makes the startling  statement on Japanese authority  that the inner city of Pekin was  being bombarded by the allied  forces. Admiral Remey says also  that the dowager empress is detained in the inner city by prince  Yung.  Advices received late last night  from the foreign office at Tokio,  Japan, by the Japanese legation in  this~city"confirm and amplify the  previous accounts of the capture of  Pekin by the allied troops.  General Chaffee's dispatch was  received during the morning and  transmitted Immediately to the  president afc the White House. A  copy of the dispatch likewise was  sent to adjutant-general Corbin,  who is in New York. It will be  noted that the dispatch indicates  that the American troops entered  the legation grounds afc five o'clock  on the eveniug of the 14fch insfc.  By the Washington officials and by  the several legation officials to whom  it was shown, the date of general  Chaffee's communication is regarded  as an error of transmission. Ifc is  believed that the word fifteenth  should be "sixteenth."  The fact that only the Fourteenth  Infantry and Riley's battery entered the city does not indicate  that the Ninth Infantry and the  marines, who were so conspicuously  gallant throughout the advance  upon the capital, did nofc participate in the engagement which resulted directly in the rescue of the  besieged legationers. lib is pointed  out that ifc is likely that general  Chaffee, acting in concert with the  other commanders, divided his  force, leaving the Ninth Infantry  and the marines without the walls  of the cifcy to act as a rear guard  to prevent the escape of the Chinese troops by other gates than  those through which the allies  entered, or for some other excellent  reasons. Only two battalions of  Fourteenth Regiment are with general Chaffee. They comprise about  800 men. This would indicate that  only about  one-third  of  general  Chaffee's force had entered the city  at the time he sent the dispatch.  Admiril Remey's despatch con  tains much interesting information  in few words,, but its startling  feature is that fighting within the  city of Pekin was continuing,  according to his advices.  The inner,or as it has been popularly known, the forbidden city has  evidently not been taken. Ifc is  surrounHed by a massive wall of  solid masonry more than twenty  feet high, and ifci** nofc regarded as  surprising that the Chinese should  make their final stand within its  shadows.  Prior to"the receipt of this dispatch 'it ��� was accepted  generally : as a-, fact" that the  dowager empress, iu company with  the emperor and their large suite,  had leffc Pekin.' -While* nothing is  said in admiral Remey's advices as  to the whereabouts of the empei-or  it is deemed scarcely probable that  he left the city without the empress  dowager.                  :  Mr. Wu said to.the Associated  press today that he lias official advices to the effect that the emperor  ann empress dowager had gone  from Pekin to the province of  Shensi, a considerable distance west  of the capital city. It is believed  they were entirely put of danger.  The statement that the dowager  empress was detained by prince  Yungedo, therefore, gave him little  concern, although _, he expressed  some interest in it.; He said there  was no Chinese prince Yungedo. Ifc  is nofc a Chinese name. Ifc might  be, the minister suggested, a Japanese name, but- personally he knew  of no such person. * At the Japanese  legation it was said thafc Yungedo  was not a- Japanese ��� name.' No  Japanese official, of that name was  known to the legation attaches.  Their, solution of the' question  raised by the despatch was that  the name should be Yung Lu. He  is the commander-in-chief of the  imperial Chinese troops, and is said  to have strong- pro-foreign inclination's and sympathy. No conjecture  was offered as to the reason for the  detention of- the dowager, empress  by him.   .,  '; .-   a- _        ;  . While no surprise-was- evinced at  the statement of admiral Remey  that the inner cifcy was being bombarded, some concern was expressed  lest the final staud of. the Chinese  troops, -within what they regard  as most sacred * precincts, should  prove a very serious affair.  Pekin comprises practically four  cities in one. In extent of area, it  is the size of New York. The four  segments of ifc are the Chinese city,  the Tartar city, the Imperial city  and the forbidden cifcy. The lasfc is  the "inner city" mentioned in admiral Remey's dispatch and it is  the residence of the emperor and  the seat of the Imperial court. No  one is allowed to -see within its  massive walls'except by si^ecial permission of the emperor or empress  dowager. The Imperial city is occupied only by the highest officials  and members and attaches of the  ImperiaLcourt -   Late last night the Japanese  minister, Mr. Takahira, received the  following advices from the Japanese foreign offic at Tokio:  " The Japanese consul at Che-Foo  wired under date of August 17th to  the following effect: 'The foreign  forces attacked on the eastern side  of Pekin on Wednesday morning.  The enemy obstinately resisted. In  the evening the Japanese blew up  the Chiao Yung gate and the Yung  Chi gate of the Tartar city and  succeeded in entering. In the mean  time other foreigu forces entered  the Chinese cifcy by the Tung Pein  gate. Detachments were sent immediately to the legations and  opened communications. The ministers and staffs were found safe.  The Japanese loss was over 100, including three officers. The Chinese  loss was about 400.' "  Substantially, the information  contained iu the above dispatch  was received by the Associated  Press yesterday direct from Tokio.  It contains the explicit and reassuring statement that the ministers and staffs were found safe. It  is more direct and complete in detail than the American advices thus  far received. '_  Partition Has Begun.  London, August 20.���General  Grodeckoff, says the Sfc. Petersburg  correspondent of the Times,  telegraphs a remarkable fact  which must be taken as a  premonitory notice of what is  probably to follow. Tha Russians  have now conquered fche right; bank  of the Amur, which therefore is no  longer the frontier, but an internal  river of fche Russian empire.  MANDERSON COMMITTED  Intent to Defraud Creditors.  On Saturday John Manderson  was committed for trial on the  charge of disposing of his property with intent to defraud his  creditors. J. T. Fife and C. Morrison were called to testify as to  Manderson's indebtedness and the  latter stated that his first intimation of Manderson's selling out was  on the morning of the 10th instant  when he saw the stock being taken  from the store.  John Williams, a Ward street  merchant, was pub in the box and  stated that on fche Oth inst. he had  made au agreement to purchase the  Manderson stock but the deal did  not go through, H. A. Prosser taking the goods. Witness then took  over the stuff paying $100 down.  Chief Jarvis gave evidence as  to defendant's arrest, and tMan-  derson then made a statement. He said he met Williams and was advised to sell out,  an agreement being made that  Williams should pay him 75 cents  on the dollar. Defendant failed to  take - stock and borrowed $10 to  redeem a watch he had pawned.  Later Prosser took over the goods  and gave him $90. Altogether,  therefore, he got $100 for.the stock,,  which he valued at $450.  When Manderson was arrested  he had $80.80 on his person. This  sum has, it is understood, been returned s to Mr. Williams, who has  turned over._ the goods to the  creditors.        '   BOTH CAMES WON BY NELSON  Ford in his cable letter this morning says: "As to the future settlement of China, I believe it is a fact,  strange as it may appear, thafc no  formal exchange of views has yet  taken place between fche various  cabinets on the subject, but there  is a general and informal understanding thafc Chinese integrity  will be respected and that no power  will seek territorial acquisitions.  Meanwhile ifc is worth noting thafc  Russia, besides occupying New-  Chwang and capturing Hai Chen,  is already in possession of Chinese  territory on the southern bank of  the Amoor."  Eagles Badly Beaten.  The * Nelson ball team won two  games from_the Eagles of Spokane  on Saturday and Sunday. The  visitors played a very fair game on  Saturday and came within an ace  of winning, but on ��� Sunday they  went completely to~ pieces in the  'first innings, played "the'raggedest  kind of baseball and were defeated  by 10 runs to 1., The opening game  proved to be mosfc interesting because of the gallery finish madeby  the home team, which pulled the  match out of the fire in the ninth  inning, wheu Spokane had a comfortable lead and under ordinary  circumstances had the game won.  Saturday's line-up was as follows:  Eagles���Gilpatrick, shortstop; Ormi-  son, third base; Edwards, second  base; Fawkes, pitcher; Hickey, first  base; Fairweather, center field;  Cryderman, catcher; Copson, right  field; Royce, left field. Nelson���  Houston, catcher; Waters, pitcher;  Rockenfield, shortstop; Eacritt,  second base; Willner, first base;  Worth, third base; Neelands, l'ight  field ;_.McLeod,center-field;���Phair,-  lef fc field.    Dr. Doherfcy, umpire.  The Eagles scored four runs in  the third innings and singles in the  fifth and sixth. Nelson scored  singles in the first, fifth and sixth.  In the home team's end of the ninth  Waters rapped out a home run,  bringing in Phair and Houston,  while Rockenfield scored on a hit by  Eacritt, leaving the tally 7-6 in  favor of Nelson. ������������Owing to the bad  weather the attendance was small  bufc the crowd grew enthusiastic  over the play which landed Nelson  a winner. Weliner pitched the  second game for Nelson with  Waters behind the bat, Houston on  third, Worth on second, and Partridge on first. Cryderman went in  to pitch for the Eagles but was  relieved in the third innings after  Nelson had made ten runs off him.  Ormison occupied the box for the  balance of the game and held Nelson down to six runs. The visitors  were away off color and did not  play anything like as well as on  Saturday. Nelson was in good  form and shut the Eagles out until  the eighth innings, when Capson  managed to get over the plate. The  attendance was about 250.  Capture of New-Chwang Confirmed,  Brussels, August 19.���The Belgian foreign office has received the  following from Tien-Tsin, via Che-  Foo and Shang-Hai, August 18th:  "M. Kettels, Belgian vice-consul,  confirms the report of tho bombardment and capture of New-  Chwaug by the Russians."  Russia the Only Aggressor.  Nkw York, August 19.���Regarding the future of China, Isaac N.  GENERAL ELECTION IS NEAR  Notes on British Politics.  London, August 19.���Though no  official announcement has been  made on the subject, it is now generally accepted that a general election will take place in October.  Both of the great party organizations are busy preparing for the  contest, overhauling their local  machinery and providing themselves with candidates. It is understood thafc unless some very untoward and unexpected event  should occur in foreign affairs  rendering it absolutely undesirable  to disturb the country with a general election, the government will  go to the polls in rather less than  two months from the present time.  It is recognized thafc fche military  operations in South Africa may not  be at an end by that date, but as it  is impossible to predict when the  resistance of the Boer guerrilla  columns will be finally overcome,  the ministry does not think it worth  while to wait for that event, maintaining that at least the issue is  practically decided in favor of  Great Britain, and that what is  now to come is only a part of the  slow process of settling and pacifying the country.  NELSON BOAT CLUB SPORTS  Programme of Events.  A meeting of the committee of  the Nelson Rowing Club was held  in the bank of Montreal on Saturday  evening for the purpose of arranging for the regatta which the . club  will hold next Saturday.   The chief  feature will be the four oared race,  for which five crews are now practicing.   The  talent,  so���far,   have  picked Winter's crew as the winner  of   the   event.     The   programme  includes,   two   events   which    are  novelties in Kootenay, the umbrella  and cigar race and the tournament.  In the former the contestants have  to stop at an appointed place, light  a cigar and put up an umbrella,  and they must pass the winning  post with the cigar alight and the  umbrella up.   The  tournament is  between   canoes, in the stern   of  which the paddler is seated while  in the bows stands a man armed  with a mop, whose object is to wipe  his antagonist off the face of the  canoe into the water.   The whole  affair is aboufc as funny as can be  well imagined.  The events are as follows:  Four bared race, Winter v. Hyslop, 1.30 p. m. ;  Four oared race, Stewart.v.

The finishing post for all the  events will be opposite the Nelson  Ice company's piles.  A. H. Buchanan has offered a  prize for the Ladies' double sculling  race, aud the prizes for the other  events will be given by the club.  The winners of the four oared race  will get a set of pewters.  .Competitors are particularly requested to be on hand punctually,  for _o win g_to_the.len gfch.of_the_pro--  gram it will be impossible to get  through unless the contests are  brought off on time.  The entries close today and the  list will be published later. The  events are, of course, only open to  members of the club.  ELECTRIC LJGHTDAM CONE  Details of the Damage.

At present it is  united people. It is open to the  members of the Dunsmuir government now to admit that they made  a mistake in announcing their intention to issue such a commission.  It controls the present legislature  solely upon the principle that the  majority shall rule, and this principle has no more recognition in  the legislature than at the polls,  and the electors of the mining districts, without dissent, have declared that there shall be no tinkering with the eight-hour law as it  stands.           Lv dealing with the petition of  the mine-owners for the appointment of a commission to investigate the working of the eight-hour  law, the government at Victoria  should remember that throughout  the districts affected one hundred  signatures could be secured to  a counter petition for every, one  whicli could be secured by  the men who are seeking to  kill the eight-hour law. This  does not show that the people who  favor the present law are afraid of  an investigation. It can only be  taken as an earnest of their determination to head off further trouble  and discord. What they want is a  breathing spell, and they consider  their verdict on the 9th of June  entitles them to it.  Goodwin Smith lias been studying  the present political situation in  Britain and from ib makes the  deduction that the system of party  government is collapsing, and that  the dissolution has begun in the  party of progress. Goldwin Smith  is probably the most advanced  thinker ��� in political economy in  Canada, but he may be very Avide  of the mark. Nevertheless his  finding will receive a great deal of  attention. Tho mere suggestion of  such a collapse opens a wide field  for speculation as to what would  succeed the present system.

It  is no reproach to those who look  forward to progress, sooner or  later, on the lines of Imperial Federation, that they have not yet  been able to work out a practical  plan with anything like general  assent. This, as Mr. Parkin has  pointed out in his interesting work  on the subject, was precisely the  state of American opinion^ jn that  critical period between the recognition of the independence of the  United States and the adoption of  the federal constitution.

Since that clause  was inserted' in the government's  programme for the session, its members have had a chance to learn  that such a course would not meet  with the approval of a great many  members of the legislature who are  inclined   to   support the . government's general policy.   They have  had a chance to learn that the mere  suggestion of the* appointment of a  commission   is   repugnant   to the  great majority of. the people of the  mining districts.

When the eight-hour law  was passed there was a very wide  difference   of opinion   throughout  the mining districts as to whether  the move was judicious.   For several months after its enforcement  the strife which the new law begot  stagnated business  of every kind,*  but prosperous   times have   come  again, and the people of the mining  districts   now   desire,   above     all  things, to be let alone by legislators  at Victoria.   They have very good  reasons to view with suspicion the  actions of the men who are striving to secure the creation of the commission.   They are men whose hostility to the eight-hour law is known  from one end of the province to  the other.   They are men who" had  the opportunity and the means to  make the eight-hour law an issue in  the recent elections, but they did  not   dare,   and    they, are    now  striving to accomplish through the  means of a commission what they  could not secure with the consent  of the electors.   It is a case of a  few disgruntled individuals setting  their opinion against that of the  understood that, under a provisional arrangement, Sydney is to be  made the headquarters of the governor-general, but it is provided, in  the constitution itself, that the federal 'parliament shall sit at Melbourne until the new seat of government is fixed.  According to the constitution  that rests with the parliament itself. The future capital is to be  placed within territory granted to  or acquired by tbe Commonwealth  as a whole and vested ,in it, of not  less than 100 square miles in area,  situated in the stateof New South  Wales, but distant not less than 100  miles from Sydney.  It is probable that the place  chosen will be on the borders of  New South Wales, close to the Victorian frontier, jand, if. possible,  "within easy reach of both Sydney  and Melbourne. There are no  existing towns in New South Wales  which are of any considerable size.  In fact, the most striking feature in  Australian life is that so large a  part of the population is concentrated in the capitals of the two  larger colonies, both situated on the  sea coast and requiring special protection against naval attack.  The advance which has been  made by the colonies of Australia  in laying the broad foundations of  tlieir local unity brings the question of Imperial Federation within  view as a problem of practical politics. It was impossible to treat it  as such while the units of colonial  strength were too small and scattered to be fairly brought into comparison with the vast mass of the  British empire as a whole or with  the immense population and  wealth of the United Kingdom.  The creation of the Dominion of  Canada constituted one unit large  and compact enough to put in an  emphatic claim for consideration in  imperial politics. The evolution of  the -Commonwealth of Australia  has called into existence another  factor of equal weight and force.  We all look forward now, with  justifiable confidence, to the time  when a third grou}3 of. colonies will  be bound together in South Africa  by a federal tie. When the colonists  choose to ask for it public opinion  in this country will not refuse them  a share in the counsels and   the  responsibilities, the authority and  the dignity, of the empire.

The test of   subordinate's  uece3S' has been his casualty list,  j wo things the field marshall was  ire of, namely, that the enemy  '-ould not attack, and that as soon  |* his paths of retreat were threat-  lied lie would run.   The situation,  deed, was that the Boers had one  1 vantage���the choice of positions;  ��� id the British another���numbers,  ord Roberts used his numbers so  ���to neutralize the enemy's advan-  [tge.   When he was found to have  'iken up a strong post in his native  Ijpjes the. frontal attack was only  developed sufficiently to ascertain  ith   measurable accuracy  where  aie enemy was and how he could  ���jfest be   outflanked.   Then,   while  lie troops in front kept him busy  inother strong body of   mounted  lien, already advancing well out to  |';he right or   left, swept  in   and  !ireatened him in the flank or rear,  louring   the   night   he   invariably  '���ekked.

Is this due to  the altruistic and humane spirit  that is more and more informing  the modern world. Is the time  come when the minds of men will  revolt at a Gettysburg or a Gravel-  lotte with their windrows.of slain ?  Magersfontein, with about 100 killed and 800 or 900 wounded, imparted a shock to the English-speaking world. But what was it compared with Badajos, where the  English lost 3500 men, the whole  slaughter taking place in a space  less than 100 yards square: after  Waterloo 35,000 human beings lay  dead or wounded on the field; at  Albuera there were but 1800 un-  wounded out of 0000 British soldiers. The 3rd B"ffs went into that  battle 24 officers and 750 rank and  file, and at roll-call next morning  there were but five officers and 35  men. And these figures, ghastly as  they are, are dwarfed into insignificance by the records of the American civil war and the Franco-German war. Or is it that it was felt  that the occasion had not come for  such sacrifices���that Britain's South  African possessions could be preserved and increased without immolation on a colossal scale? The  two considerations probably united  in recommending the policy that  was adopted. Certain it is that the  repugnance. to carnage which has  grown with the moral growth of  civilisation would make . it very  difficult to begin or carry on a war  in which the conscience of a nation  was not warmly enlisted.

Had  he stubbornly held to the position  that he refused to allow the inher-  nal affairs of his state to be interfered with from without, and compelled the British government to  take up the [offensive, the hands of  -the-aggressbrs^would���have���been-  tremendously weakened. As it was,  he united mother country and colonies and isles of the sea by his impudent ultimatum and invasion, of  British territory. He fatuously  shifted the question from whether  we had a right to interfere in the  domestic affairs of a foreign state  to whether we were strong enough  to hold our South African possessions. And we are answering him  in a most unmistakable way.  Chaffee's Eecord.
