THE  Appeal Made by the Wife of Pretoria's  Military Governor, Who Waa a  San Francisco Girl.  New York, April 16.��� On behalf  of the thousands of destitute  women and children, many of them  orphaned by the war in South  Africa, Mrs. Louise S. Maxwell,  wife of major John Grenfell Maxwell, the military governor of Pretoria, has appealed to America for  aid. Mrs. Maxwell's husband has  charge of the Boer refugees, who  have been driven from their homes  and farms by the war. She says  that 22,000 of them have been collected in the city provided for them  by the British.- Many of them are  forced to sleep under tents iu the  open air, aud the winter is approaching. She says she has done  what she could in South Africa to  procure help, but that England's  millions have been drawn upon  heavily- for the maintenance of the  widows and orphans of the British  soldiers killed in the war. In a  letter, written from the military  governor's office at Pretoria on  March 13th, Mrs. Maxwell appeals  through the Herald for aid. Sho  says that contributions of warm  clothing addressed to the military  governor, Pretoria, South Africa,  will be most -. gratefully received'  and distributed among,them. _ Mrs.  Maxwell before her marriage was  Miss Louise S. Bonynge. She was  born in San Francisco, where her  father, Charles W. Bonynge, made  a.fortune out of mines. General  Maxwell"was appointed provincial  governor of Pretoria last October  "; by lord Roberts. ^ ,!.._.��-_,.'; -L. i J* .  - Work Begun on Government Buildings.  Excavation work 'was yesterday  begun on the new postofficie-custom  "house buildings, corner of Ward  and Vernon streets. There are  about 3400 yards of earth to be removed, but the present contract  calls for only about 900 yards. This  is beiug dumped in the hollow in  front-of the Hume Hotel,, and will/  be a great improvement to that  part of. Vernon street, filling a  dangerous and unsightly hole. The  scoops just shave the office of  weighinaster Jackson, which will  have to be removed at once. "Now  that work has begun it will be pursued to completion without any unnecessary delays.  Bounding Up Gamblers.  The city police have been making  ���an effort"to���round-up-the-p'rofes"  sional gamblers who live, thrive  and have their being in Nelson.  They succeeded in securing one of  the number, who was yesterday  brought before mayor Fletcher and  admitted, in legal phraseology, that  he had. no peaceable profession or  calling, and that lie made a living  by gambling.

Another Engine Jumps the Track.  O. P. R. engine No. 314 jumped  the track yesterday forenoon at  that particular curve on the line  where so many engines have left  the rails of late.

Victoria, April ��� 16.���Notwithstanding advertisement of government for tenders for the construction of the Coast-Kootenay railway,  it is said that none have been  received by the commissioner of  lands aud works. The executive had  a conference this morning, and it is.  probable .that the course which  they will pursue was under consideration. Sensational developments are looked for when the railway policy comes up for consideration,, or possibly, before.  MINISTERS  KILLING  TIME  GIVE  GENERAL   CHAFFEE  SOME  MOEE.

A Runaway and Smashup.  There was no end of commotion  occasioned on "Ward street, south  of Baker, yesterday by a runaway  horse drawing a wagon, laden with  galvanized, ironware. 'The wagon  was being loaded from Byers' warehouse wlien the horse took fright,  and, dashing along the alley at the  rear of-Baker street, made his way  through, several. obstacles to "Ward  street.

There was a notable gathering. Field marshall von "Waldersee  and all the generals with their  staffs were present, as  the ministers and their  taries. In all there  guests. The field marshal made a  speech in English, in the course of  which he said it was an occasion of  congratulation and sorrow, the  first on the occasion of general  Chaffee's birthday, and "the  second owing to the departure  of the ' Americans. Every foreigner in China bade Godspeed  to general Chaffee aud the brave  men under him, for none had made  themselves more generally popular.  _For_general_Chaffee^personally��� he  felt admiration and esteem, and all  present felt the same. Senor  Decologtian, the Spanish minister  to China, made similar remarks .on  behalf of the diplomatic corps.  A force of 1100 Germans and 1000  French troops leave here tomorrow  to join the Pao Ting Fu expedition  against Liu Hui Lu.   >*  At a meeting of the ministers  this morning, the situation generally and count[7 Von "Waldersee's  report were considered, but nothing  definite was decided upon..  The Chinese court has replied to  the recommendations of Japan ou  the subject that it is impossible for  the emperor to return to Pekin  until the country's guests leave.  London, April 10:���A dispatch to  the Reuter Telegram Company  from Pekin, dated April 16th, says  that general von Cyllte in command  of 5000 German and 3000/French  troops is heading an'expedition to  attack Liu Hui Lu, who is within  120 miles of Pao Ting Fii. Lui's  position is inside tlie territory defined by field marshal von Waldersee  as the sphere of operations of the  allies. Liu has 10,000 men, aud he  refuses to retire, saying if the allies  wished him to retire they had  better come out and compel him to  do so.        ������ '���"���  ������    Arizona Sheriff Murdered.  Phoenix, Arizona, April 16.���  Sheriff E. D. Beeler of Apache  county, well known throughout the  southwest,- was ambushed and  killed in a fight a month ago. News  of the bloody tight lias just reached  here. Beeler fell mortally wounded  by a volley from behind a stone  wall, fired by the friends of a man  he he had killed some time ago.  FITTING   SENDOFF   TO   A   GOOD  STEAMBOAT MAN.  He Beceives Many Handsome Presents  Expressive of the Best Wishes of  a Host of Friends.  The banquet tendered to captain  Troup last night was one of thS  largest gatherings of the kind ever  held in Nelson. The spacious dining room of the Phair -hotel was  well filled by-friends of the guest,  including nearly all the prof essional  and business men of the city and a  number of the railway and steamboat officials, with whom the captain is deservedly popular. Shortly  after nine o'clock the hotel corridor was ^cleared and possession  taken of the dining room where a  recherche supper was served, including all the delicacies that could  tempt the appetite or entice the  palate.  At the head of the table sat  mayor Fletcher, with captain Troup  to his right and superintendent  Downie to his left, and other prominent C. P. R. men���railway and  steamboat���and prominent citizens  facing the good things provided.  Three rows of'tables extended from  .top to bottom of the room with  every seat filled.  Captain Troup saw some very  active service on the Columbia  river, and the old navigators of that  great-stream tell stories ..of hazard  and. bravery which will always-be  associated with the name of Troup..  "When a difficult piece of work had  to be undertaken,- rapids to be  cleared or surging gorges to be  faced, tlie man at the helm was  invariably captain Troup, and the  immunity from accident enjoyed'by-  boats under his commahd.is always  cited .as "Evidence; of ^ hig^kill. aud4-!.them~. "of  -the - latest?. ��an"d  clear .'/judgment.*' Captain "John  Irving of' the" C' P. N. Company  recognized in him a, man of cool  deliberation and skill, and induced  him to abandon the Columbia in  favor of the Fraser river service���a  service in Which he is well and  favorably known, and for a time he  commanded the Yosemite, plying  between Victoria and New "Westminster.  About 1882, captain Troup left  the C. P. N. Company to take  charge of the Mara line of steamers  on the inland lakes, and during railway construction, and .in command  of the old Peerless, ran between  Savonos Ferry and what was  known as Eagle Pass, then a lively  little town near Sicamous, along  the Thompson river and Shuswap  lakes. He was always a man of  great energy, and oue winter w hile  the-Peerless-was-tied-up-in���the-ice,-  he took a sub-contract on the road,  then nearing Kamloops, and as a  contractor he is said to have been  a success.  Having put in some rough times  in this upper country, he returned  to the Coast as superintendent of a  line of steamers on Puget Sound for  the Southern Pacific Railway  Company. Here he remained until  about 1892, when- he returned to  the Mara service, _ which had  extended its operations to the  Columbia river and Kootenay lakes.  Subsequently this line was bought  out by the C. P. R., and by the new  company the valuable services of  the captain were retained, and  under his supervision operations  were extended to the Okanagan  and Slocan lakes. "With the growth  of traffic his responsibilities were  increased, till with the steamboat  department he was called upon to  look after the railway branch also.  Having faithfully filled these multifarious offices, he was recently  transferred to the Coast as superintendent of the old 0. P. ;N. line of  steamers'taken over hy- the C..P. R.  The captain's presence, in Nelson  today is owing to the winding up of  his private affairs here, and the  citizens took the opportunity of  giving him some tangible evidence  of their esteem in the form of a  banquet, presentation and address.  After the cloth was cleared the  toast list was started with "Oiir  King," which was received to the  good old national anthem tune for  the first time in the Phair dining  room.  "The President of the United  States and Friendly Nations,"  followed.  "The Maple Leaf Forever" having  been sung by Messrs. Caldwell and  Lawrence, "The Army and Navy"  was toasted, and received by the  singing of "The Red, White and  Blue."  "The Guest of the Evening" was  received with, the greatest enthusiasm. He was declared "A  Jolly Good Fellow" in song, cheered  to the echo, and given several  "tigers." ��� .  Mayor Fletcher in proposing the  toast remarked that'their gathering  that evening was. one of gladness,  mingled with regret���gladness because their old -^friend, captain  Troup, was with them, and sorrow  because that gentleman was severing  his connection with Nelson. He  was a pioneer of steamboat life in  this party of the country, when the  steamboat was .the-': only means of  getting in or out. ; He was always  courteous and obliging, and did  everything in his power to accommodate the traveling public, and at  the same time serve faithfully the  interests of the corporation he' so  ably represented.' This fact was  fully.apprebiated, so that the district' under the.1 supervision of  captain Troup vfras known the  world oyer as a pleasurable .one in  whieh to travel. "This condition of  affairs was'due tb captain Troup as  much, if not 'more, than to the  company which he represented  (cheers).  Captain McMorris then presented  captain Troup with a magnificent  cabinet of silverware on .behalf of  the steamboat branch of the service.  The cabinet-is of solid'polished oak,  containing 167-"pieces, and when it  is stated that it was supplied from  the establishment of Jacob Dover,  the fact is a guarantee that, every  article is genuine.' The cabinet and  its contents weigh 200 > pounds, and  is without question the best thing  of the sort"ever ssen Jn British.  Columbia.. It is-xonly- a week ago  since * Mr. Dover got the order for  the presentation,, so that it is highly  creditable to the house that" at so  short a'notice so grand' a collection  ,'of articles could "be" furnished. Ib  ;includes'kriives, forks, spoons, etc.,  'for every dish known', every one of  most-  approved design  In making the presentation, captain McMorris, of the Kokanee, said :  It is indeed gratifying to me, sir,  that I have -been delegated to address you on the part of the Columbia Kootenay marine department.  My only regret is that one better  has not been chosen, as I realize my  inability to do justice to the matter  in hand. On occasions of this class  it is customary to extol the virtues  and gloss over the failings of the  honored guest. On this occasion,  however, there are several weighty  reasons why we should' depart  from the time-honored custom,  chief among which is the fact that  time will not permit even a passing  reference to the many virtues of  our guest, and common courtesy,  the stock-in-trade of the C. P. R.  employees, prevents even the  thought of-a-failing,  The growth of the fleet since the  year '92 wheu our guest first  assumed the superintendency, has  been little short of miraculous, and  fully in keeping with the needs of  the district. Tliat year the fleet  comprised four steam- vessels���  three on the Columbia river and  one on Kootenay lake ��� and river.  At the present time- there are fifteen steamers in commission,- well-  equipped and thoroughly up-to-  date in-all their appointments, all  pf them collectively and each separately a fitting monument to captain  Troup's skill as a designer.-   '  In the official relationship existing between our guest, and the officers and crews of the steamers  there has ever been on his part a  kindness and courtesy evinced that  has won for him the respect and  esteem of all. We have found him  always pleasant of "approach, and  when solicited his. counsel and advice have been freely given  and in a manner which would  not offend the most sensitive.  When mistakes occurred on our  part:he was just and; generous in  his dealings���more inclined to leniency than in exacting 'full penalty  for the offence. By his tact and  courtesy, coupled with the many  other excellent traits of character,  he endeared himself to. the hearts  of all who served him, and thus  made duty a pleasure rather than a  task. Taking all these facts into  consideration we have deemed it  fitting at this time to express our  feelings and at the same time in  some tangible manner show our appreciation of his many .good qualities, and we therefore ask captain  Troup to accept in the spirit in  which it is offered, the accompany  ing cabinet of silver. Amongst us  regret at his departure from this  division is universal. We have no  doubt of his success in his new field  of labor, and we tender him our  sincere good wishes and hearty congratulations on his advancement to  a wider sphere. We would ask him  to convey to his partner in life our  kindest regards, and would wish  them both long life and health to  enjoy the blessings of Providence.  [Cheers.]  Captain Troup in rising to reply  was accorded an almost boisterous  'reception.    He said: Mr. Chairman  and gentlemen, I have had a  great  many difficult tasks allotted to me,  but never one so difficult as that I  now undertake.   ���  A voice���Go it (laughter).  Captain Troup���I will (renewed  laughter). " My feelings on this occasion you naay well understand:  They are both sad and pleasurable  ���sad because. I am to sever ties  which   I   have   formed   here, and  pleasurable   because I see around  me   so many friends  that I have'  known for years, and men whom I  feel and know are friends   (here,  hear).    Ib is a pleasure to know and  feel that a demonstration of this_  kind could not take place except I  had. steadfast -friends in the com-,  munity who are sincere in their de-;  sire to give me a friendly shake of  the hand and wish me Godspeed  (cheers). ' ,If the fact of my having  lived in Kootenay has had anything'  to do with the development of the  country I  am thankful.    My work,  I assure you, has  been a labor of  love,    It was"in March,1892,that I  came to-Nelson to remain here.    It  was a bright sunny day, as many  of you will remember.   It had been  a long winter aud there was a big  delay in the train getting in from  the,outside.    We came up the Columbia from Little   Dalles,. on   to  Lytton,   to   the-   Kootenay .river,  where we found John Hamilton and  others waiting for us.'. We took the  train and. got into ~ Nelson .without  any mishap, and in those days to  get in-without mishap, as Mr/Hamilton will tell you, was something  inew   (laughter).   ' Here*we-'found"  ' friehdrPhairjwaitingi foiMis^tp-give -  ' us the glad hand,<as he has done so';  often since..' Since coining here my  ambition , has been tp improve the  'service and bring ib up to. a proper,  standard.    I  would  be  bashful "in.  bringing  this  subject  up  were  it  not for the fact that the mayor and  captain  McMorris  have  alluded to  it:   The steamboat service was improved    more    than    any    other  branch   of   the service for years.  The   good words   spoken   for  the  steamboat service here, - the  good  things written about them-by  correspondents from the east, have had  very much  to do in  making  this  country known and   in   bringing  people to ib.    .[Hear, hear, and applause].  Captain Troup told the story of  the arrival of Clarke Wallace ��� aud  some friend from the east at Revelstoke, and the surprise expressed  by them at finding suchcomfortabler  up-to-date steamers plying on inland waters in British Columbia.  Tourists would not travel if they  had to suffer inconvenience and discomfort. Many present would  remember the old "Dispatch" and  "lllecilliwaet." Compare these with  the "Rossland" and "Kokanee" and  the development was apparent.  "This development has not been  brought about," added the speaker,  "without many hard days' work,  persuasion to get the company to  build the boats, and many a sleepless night on my part. From the  very first I had great faith in Kootenay, but as far as Nelson was concerned, I sometimes had my doubts.  In this particular, however, I have  changed my mind. Nelson is a good  place to tie up to. [Hear, hear, arid  applause.] . That opinion I formed  long ago, and I have no reason to  change my mind. [Applause;]. I regret leaving Nelson, but you know  that when connected with^-a big  corporation a man has to go where  his services are required. In looking over the past, I cannot but  draw attention to the marked  growth of this country. In 1893,as  inany of you remember, the steamer  Lytton was the only one in commission between here and the main  line. She had two carloads a week  and made two trips. During* the  last three days of my superintendence here we handled from western  points one hundred carloads per  day. [Applause.] If that is riot  growth I don't know what, is.  [Cheers].  Captain Troup proceeded to say  that he regretted leaving a growing  country such as this. True he was  going to more populous districts,  but he liked the vim and go of Koot  enay.    [Applause.]   As regards his  connection with the railway branch  of the service, he said that this was  same what new to him, but with  the kindly services of such old and  experienced hands as Mr.  Guteilus,  Mr. Hamilton, Mr. Lawrence and  others matters were made easy for  him.    His   steamboat friends  had'  been good enough to allude kindly  to his connection with them,  and  their kindness was fully appreciated  for although he had occasion   to  have many of them "on the carpet"  at one time or another, he was glad  to know that they realized that it  was done in  the discharge of his  duty, and while he might appear to  have been harsh, they understood  his motives were right and just.  He gave some pleasant recollections  of his connections with steamboat  and railway men and assured all  present that their tokens of esteem  would be ever valued' by him and  Mrs." Troup.    [Applause.]"  Mayor Fletcher presented on behalf of the citizens generally a  beautiful cut glass . liquor set  mounted in silver, a pearl-handled  carving set and a set of fruit and  fish knives of sterling silver. These  articles were also from the establishment of Jacob Dover, and were  of the Highest degree of art and  utility. With the presentation was  a suitable'address..   ~     _ (  '. . Several songs, speeches,- recitations, good wine and excellent  cigars made the remainder of the  meeting pleasant, and at an early  hour this morning captain Troup  had a farewell shake of the hand  from all his assembled friends and  many earnest wishes for his future  success and happiness. ��  BOUNTY RESOLUTION KILLED  WANT A SHARE IN THE SPOIL  LITTLE   OOUNTBIES   HAVE  BILLS TO   PBE8ENT.

Another Big Copper Amalgamation.

There  is a general belief among those well  informed on tlie copper situation  that the foregoing plans are only  preliminary to a much larger expansion of the amalgamated company, which aims to take in, eventually, the rich mines of northern  Michigan and Arizona, as well as  those of Montana. This would give  the company a practical control of  the copper situation in this country,  with the exception of ihe Heinze  holdings'in Butte.

Morgan's British Investments.  London, April 16.���Pierpont Morgan's investments in British enterprises, says the Daily Mail, have  thus far been confined to the pur- *  chase of a Scotch collie for ��300.  Mr. Morgan says he thinks that the  steel, trust will not make a specially  aggressive fight for control of the '  British market. On the contrary  it will only meet legitimate demands, but will spoil the popular  theory that American steel and iron  for foreign business represents only  the surplus production. As a matter of fact���still stating Mr. Morgan's position���the concerns comprised in the trust are full up with  orders for fully nine months forward. London will probably become the headquarters of the corporations for foreign business.  AM  - ^t.X  ?^?'  - r J    /s.m  *-,-.v��?r  " THE  TRIBUNE:  NELSON, B.

TBE HUM'S BIT C01MT  Baker  Street, Nelson.  tea  That there is an absence of sympathy, between the Englishmen who  furnish the money for the development of Kootenay properties  and  the   Englishmen who manage  the  s lid properties in Kootenay, is apparent from the proceedings of the  second annual meeting of the-Ymir  Gold   Mines, which took place in  London on March 25fch. This doubtless explains why, after so much  complaint has been made  by  local  mine managers against the imposition of the two per cent tax, ,so little should be heard of it in London,  where the investors meet to listen  to the report of their year's oper-  tions.   At the recent Ymir meeting  there was not one word in condemnation of the tax which in Kootenay the people are assured is cr.ush-  - ingthelifeoutoftheminingindustry.  What is the explanation ? - Can it  ,be that the men in England who  have invested their money in the  development of properties are fairer-  minded   than the men who have  been entrusted with their development ?   It looks like it.   The directors of legitimate mining companies  probably realize that they are business men, and that when they meet  their   shareholders   they   are   expected to talk business and not politics.   They   probably ^ realize that  the government of the province of  British Columbia must receive some  return for the vast sums which it  has   expended   in   building roads,  trails, and b/idges to open up the  country,  and for the administration of the mining districts as they  are created; and they  as  business  men are not inclined to put forward  any plea for taxation .exemptions  ' for themselves and their property,  which could only have the effect of  increasing the tax burdens of the  the people engaged in every other  commercial pursuit or calling in  British Columbia. In short it may  be taken, that, when one gets right  close to the actual English investor,  he will be found willing to pay his  way, and the government of Brit-  Columbia asks nothing more.  Telegraph advices from Victoria  indicate that no response has been  made to the government's call for  tenders for the construction of the  ���new Coast to Boundary road. This  of course can only be surmise, but  self-interest will prompt Nelson's  merchants to hope that it is true.  Direct rail connection between  Boundary and the Coast means loss  of business for Nelson's wholesale  men, and loss of business is unwelcome to all wholesale men, whether  they do business iu Nelson or Victoria. . _^  Canada may not be entitled to a  front pew in point of the number  of men she sent to South Africa, but  Canada has no cause to blush when  earl Roberts' honor roll is read  over. In it no less than forty-five  Canadian names appear.  This is an off-year for charter  mongers. It begins to look as if all  railway charters granted by the  provincial legislature this session  yrUl contain a proviso to the effect  that the charters shall not be given  force of law until their promoters  give satisfactory security, in the  way of a cash deposit, for absolute  control by the government of the  freight and passenger rates.  Gave Chamberlain a Stab.  London, - April 16.���Denouncing  the South African war, at a meeting  held at Cannington last night, Mrs.  Richard Chamberlain made a lively  .attack on the colonial "secretary,  Joseph-Chamberlain. "It is all very  well" she said, "for men like my  brother-in-law Joseph, to say farm-  burning is all right, but how can he  know anything about farms' or  farming ? Who was his father ? He  was a little screw maker, ��� a very  respectable profession, but it does  not teach much" about farming. It  is no good sending out screw  makers or anything of that sort.  The war was not made for England,  but for Johannesburg capitalists  wfio could not' speak English."  Morgan Will Buy the Picture.  London, April 16!���It is announced by Onlooker, a- society  paper, that it is practically settled  that J.-Pierpont Morgan will "secure  for ��25,000 the Gainsborough picture recently recovered in Chicago.  The.Agnews deny, that the sale has  been made, as it cannot be definitely closed until the return here  of sir Thomas Agnew, who is  abroad. J.P.Morgan, junior,-said  to a representative of the Associated Press today: "My father  considers that should the negotiations for the Gainsborough picture  be completed it will be time enough  to talk about it then. For my part  I am not delegated to confirm or to  deny the report." o  Technical Education Necessary.

O  THE BLOEMFONTEIN FRIEND  Beceived by a Local Man.  ��� It.   W.   Day  is  in   receipt of  u  Bloemfontein newspaper, the'Frieud,  which is a curiosity iu its way.    Ifc  is a four-pige, eight-column sheet,  about   twelve inches longer than  The Tribune, and is printed partly  in English and partly in Dutch, the  latter playing an important part in  the advertising columns by way of  'proclamatie, or proclamations.    Of  course the news is chiefly of a warlike character, but there is  little in  it that the readers of Thb Tribune  have not had filtered through telegraphic   dispatches    and   extracts  from   war    correspondents.      The  -advertisemeuts-are-more-like-the-  ordinary dodger seen in this country  than anything else, but they contain some interesting reading.    Au  hotel mau atKroonstad for instance  "Wants'to buy all sorts of liquors."  Here the hotel man generally wants  to sell all sorts of liquors.    Then  .there    is     an   - undertaker     who  guarantees "orders attended to with  thegreatestprompitude." One would  naturally think there would be no  delay in filling orders of this class.  His   brother   of   the   monumental  works will furnish "inscriptions in  any language or style," including  Irish.    He   aliso supplies porcelain  wreaths.   A. shoemaker particularizes his establishment as "next to  the poor school," which would lead  one to believe that they have as poor  schools in the Orange Free State as  in   any   state in the union,   The  Bloemfontein infant school advertises ''kinder-ga?ten for children*1'of*  four years ahcl'upwards"���ho limit  after- four;     Ivenuit-geving '(which  being interpreted, means notice)  is  liberally used  in  calling attention'  to all sorts and conditions of things  from horse stealing to  church  services or the sale of double barrelled  rifles.    A lady  undertaker  alludes  to her late lamented as her "hitherto,"  and notwithstanding  His.  departure for  regions  unknown,  announces her determination  to continue    the   undertaking    business  aud  give satisfaction  to  all   concerned��� inferential I y, including the  corpse.   That   the   editors of tlie  Friend are busy men may be judged  from an advertisement which read?:  "Wanted���Oflice boys for the editors of this newspaper. White boys  only need apply."    There  is  something - new   about   the 'advertisements but the news is stale. ,  EARL ROBERTS' DESPATCH  ALL BUT IGNORES THE SEBVICE  OF GENERAL BULLER.  While Nearly all the Division and Brigade Commanders Eeceive Complimentary Paragraphs.  de-  the  London, April J fi.���Another  spatch from lord Roberts, on  subject of the South African campaign, dated April 2nd, 1901, has  been published in tho Gazette. -It  largely concerns the transport service, and says the mule transport  consisted of what are called in South  Africa as buck wagons, carrying a  load of 300 pounds drawn by ten  mules, each with two native drivers.  After mentioning the serviceable  wagons made iri Cape Colony, and  the frequent retiring and other re--  pairs which .the English made  wagons required, lord Roberts said:  "Six buck wagons were imported  for trial from, the United States.  These proved to be superior to any  other pattern made at the Cape or  by any other British manufacturer.  The wheels were made of hickory  the bodies of black walnut,  and the "metal work of steel.  The superiority of these vehicles  was doubtless due to the fact that  mule wagons are largely used in  America for the cjirriage of goods  as well as for military transport.  .The manufacturers have therefore  learned by practical experience  what' is the best type ot wagon,  and what are the most suitable  materials.  The best mules, lord Roberts  thinks, are the Cape mules, and the  next Lest tlie Indian mules. The  mortality among the oxen was  ���greater-than among the mules.  Lord Robert.", in his dispatches,  goes over all" branches of the' service, and -iu viewing the hospital  department mentions the American  hospital ship Maine, fitted out and  manned by,the splendid generosity  of private individuals and a committee of American ladies.  Lord Roberts' heads eleven pages  of special "ment ion, by acknowledgments of service' of  sir Alfred Milner and general" Ivitch'eneiC   Paragraphs  complimenting   almost  almost all  the  division and brigade  commanders  follow, including gen-,  erals White, JMe'thiien,  Baden-Powell,  Kelly-Kenny,  French, Arthur,  Paget,   and   Pole-Carew.
