BOUNDARY AS A PRODUCER  Will Make a Splendid Showing.  GREENWOOD, September 13.���[Special to The Tribune.J���The tonnage of  ore shipped by* Boundary District mines  during September to the llth instant  inclusive, so far as has been" ascertained from the mines, is as under:  Old  Ironsides i group  6,973  Mother Lode     2,730  B.

As'the output'of the mines for the1 district for  * he'remainder'of the year promises to  .nciease rather than decrease, it does  not appear unreasonable to estimate the'  Boundary's ore production for the year  at 350,000 tons and the gross,value at  more than two million'dollars."   .

Trouble began on the preceding  afternoon,   through  the  failure  of the digestive organs to perform their  functions.    Tlie necessity for nourishment  hah' been   pressing 'for   several  days, and the partial failure of artificial  means had led to the adoption'of natural means.   The rectum through which  nourishment had been injected previous  to Wednesday, became irritated and rejected   the   enemas.    This   foiced   the  physicians'to rtry to feed**him "through  the mouth, probaby, before the., stomach  was'prepared., The first administration  of,beef juice through the "mouth, however, seemed to agree with the patient,  and the physicians were* highly gratified at the way the stomach seemed to  receive * the ��� food.'    The  breakfast   of  chicken broth, toast, and coffee given"  yesterday morningr was spoken~*of by all  the  physicians   as  strong  evidence  of  the presidents'-marked improvement. It'  was onlyfwhen it became apparent late  in the" morning that this food'-had not'  agreed with him that "the first" genuine  anxiety" appeared.    The pulse was also  abnormally* high, 126 beats to the minute.   ,With  a temperature  of  100.2  it  should .have  been  thirty -beats  low,er  The  weakness "of  the heart began to  arouse    senous    concern. ��� Instead, of(  gi owing  better,  the  president's * condition after that &iew steadily woise. The,  staff  of physicians  augmented by Dr  Stockton,  who  had temporarily  taken(  the}place of Dr.* McBurney, was .summoned early in the evening, and* there *  was a conference, x At 8:30 o'clock last,,  night the physicians officially announced  that' the president's^condition wasr-not  so good    The pioblem' of "disposing or  the, food m the stomach was becoming  a* serious 'one, and the danger of heart,  failure ' increased,  , doses   of   digitalis^  strychnine were admihisteied, and as' a*  last fesoit saline solution was,injected  in the veins.   As midnight approached^  the situation was growing critical. Calomel and "oil were given to the president's bowels and digitalis to quiet the  heart    However,  just before midnight  the  president  had  two   operations ���" of  bowels," which relieved him very much  and  the  midnight  bulletin  was-more  ,favorable."* "   * -  It was believed then-.that the opening  of the,bowels would have the*effect ot  allaying the wild pulsations, of the  heart._ His pulse did drop to 120 and'  the prospects 'were slightly brighter.  But owing to the president^ extreme  weakness and his fatigue, no' attempt  was made to conceal the apprehensions  -w Inch-were felfe���-As-the-feelmg_of_de-_  pression increased in volume and intensity, secretary Cortelyou insisted  that the truth should be made public  by the doctors, and the bulletins themselves were telling their unfortunate  story all too plainly. There was still  hope that the worn and weary patient  would be better in the morning, and at  midnight secretai y Cortelyou said it was  not probable that another bulletin would  be 'issued until morning. Shortly after  2 o'clock the physicians and nurses detected a weakening of the heart's action The pulse fluttered and weakened and then sank toward collapse. The  end appeared to be at hand, restoratives were specd(ily applied and the  physicians fought the battle with all  tho reserve foices of science. Action  was immediate and decisive  A general alarm went speedily to the  consulting physicians and trained  nurses as fast as messengers, the telegraph and the telephone could carry  it. The restoratives did not at once  prove effective, and it was realized that  the president was in an extremely critical condition. That realization with the  shadow of death behind it led to another call, and that a summons to the  cabinet, relatives, and close personal  friends of the president. The messen-  gds who returned with the doctors and  nurses were huiried off after those within reach, and to those who were absent  from the city telegrams conveying the  paiful tidings were quickly transmitted  The physicians after their consultation  and the examination of the patent could  offer little encouragement. He was very  weak, and his heart was so feeble that  thev feared least his life might go out  at any time. The bulletin they issued  at 2 50 a. m. told of the very critical  condition of the president. When Dr.  Mann and Dr. Mynter left for their  homes, their only reasusrmg word wa��  that they had not given up hope  During the whole dreadful night Mrs  McKinley knew, nothing of the change  that had come; ��� In her feeble condition,  it was considered best not to inform  her Of ythe president's critical condition, and she slept peacefully in her  room through it all.  BUFFALO September 13���The first  physician to arrive for the morning  consultation was Dr. Wasdin. He passed-: quickly into the Milburn residence.  Two minutes later Abner McKinley  walked down to the corner to tell' his  him with a carriage for an hour, that  he would not go to the hotel for breakfast. 'The new detail of soldiers,, for  guard duty arrived from" Fort Porter  a-few minutes later: "The guard was  changed,and the sentries posted for the  day. Dr. Mynter arrived at 8:23. "I saw  the president at 5 o'clock," said he, "and  his condition was then very grave." The  doctor finished their consultation at 9:40  a. m. They, left, the house together and  stopped for a few minutes on* the lawn  to convey their verdict, first to the president's brother.. The'physicians looked  grave and'serious as they walked away  from the residence. Dr.''Mann and Dr.  Mynter came away together. "We are  very anxious," said Dr. Mann; "very  anxious," he repeated, as he entered the  carriage in waiting.  "Have you'given np hope?"   "By "no  "means,"' replied^ the( doctor.    -     y   *'\  "Is he better 'than when you saw hiin  last?"   "He is better than he was in the  early*'hours  of the morning,"  he re-  spbnded/as he directe~d''the coachman .6  'drive away.-1-'   '..���--  'Dr.,Mynter^had little encouragement  to-offer. * "I am not'absolutely without  hope,", said he. ''The president has a  fighting chance,, but I would be more  hopeful ifr the'day'were passe'd and'he  had' _;ainea"a little" strength". He has  improved? some tsince t early this morn-  .ing, but' the improvement is vefy slight.  The.tiouble lies with his heart. We are  stmulating it'"and-- our" treatment has  been fairly��� successful.". Dr. Mynter ad-  .mitted that saline ,solution ,and other  means to, keep up (the action of the heart  were **bein*_"_administered.  1 The'bulletin when issued^ was .slightly  bet'ter and lridicated'that^tfie president's  life-might be .prolpiged.'^ It stated definitely'that the president's condition had  somewhat"* improved during the , past  "few hours," and that there was better  responsevto .timulatlon; _ but his pulse  was up to 128, and the;cbnviction grew  that it was almost a forlorn hope. It  was learned that the physicians had de-  ��� cided that it would not' be' wellgfor Mrs,  McKinley to enter the 'sick 'room today,  both on account of her feeble health and'  _the excitement it might cause the president. So far as can be,learned Mis  McKinley had not been informed up to  10 o'clock of the grave conditon in which  her husband -was.  BUFFALO, September- 13 ���All the  cabinet officers were telegraphed to at  3 o'clock this morning and are now presumably en their^way here. Dr. Johnson of "Washington, who is at Poits-  mouth. on the Maine ^ coast, and,. Dr.  Janeway of, New York/ both, celebrated  heart specialists, have been summoned  A celebrated heart specialist who'has  been watching the bulletins has expressed the opinion that the extreme  weaknss of the heart is due to the shock  of the * first bullet which struck the  president's breast bone and is now manifesting itself for the first time.' * '  ' The president is perfectly. conscious  despite his extreme weakness. The doc  tors 'believe he fully realizes how low  he is, although he has not been informed. When Mrs. McKinley was told that  it would be better for her not to see him  this morning, she assented without protest. She seemed to realize the full lm-  r-ort of the case, though she said nothing.  At half-past 1 o'clock the president  was still asleep, and the heart action was  sufficiently strong not to cause alarm  enough to awaken him. Up to that hour  no other stimulants than saline solution  injections and a veiy light doso of digitalis had been used. Oxygen was ready  at hand to be used; but the trouble was  with the heart, not the lungs, and none  has yet been used. The physicians were  practically agieed that the test "would  come tonight, and they were hopeful  that they could take him through that  critical period.  CLEVELAND, September 13���Detective Parker of this city and detective  O'Loughlin of Buffalo have secured five  affidavits from persons who attended the  meetings held by Emma Goldman here.  They are to the effect that her utterances  were of an anarchistic and inflammatory  nature. The affidavits will be used as a  basis in securing extiadition papers for  her removal to Buffalo.  MILBURN HOUSE, Buffalo, September 13.���After his cabinet minister had -  left the sick room, the physicians rallied  him to consciousness, and the president  asked almost Immediately that his wife  be brought to him. The doctors fell back  lato the shadows of the room as Mrs.  McKinley came through the doorway  The strong face of the dying man lighted  up with a fpint smile as their hands  were clasped She sat beside him and  held his hand. Despite her physical  weakness, she bore up bra\ely under the  ordeal. The president in his last period  of consciousness chanted the words of  the beautiful hymn, "Nearer my God to  Thee." and his^ last audible-conscious  words, as taken down.by Dr. Mann at  the bedside, were: "Good bye, all; good  bye. It is God's will. His will be done."  Then his mind began, to: wander and  soon, afterwards he completely lost consciousness.  His life was prolonged for hours by  the administration of oxygen, and the  president finally expressed a desire to  .._. ...   __  .    -.        die. About- 8:30 the administration of  coachman, who had been- waiting for^ oxygen ceased and his pulse grew faint,  very faint.   He was sinking gradually  like a child in slumber. ' .      * . .  By 1 o'clock the pulse could not longer feltiand his extremities^grew, cold.  ' Below stairs the grief stricken gathering waited sadly for the end. *A11 the  evening those who had hastened Lh"ere  i fast ast steel and steam could carry them  .continued to arrive. They drove up in  j carriages at a gallop or were whisked up  1 in automobiles, all intent in getting here  , before death came. One of the last to arrive was  attorney-general Knox, -wno  t reached the house at 8'30 p. m.JHe was  ' permitted to go up stairs to look. (for the  ,last\time upon the face of'his'friend.  *' Those' due at this time were secretaries  Hitchcock, Wilson and Root,  senators'  Fairbanks,, Hanna "and Burrows, judge  Day, colonel Herrick, Abner, McKinley  and his wife, Dr. and Mrs. Mary Barber,  -Miss Mary Williams, the physicians'(in-  cludng Dr. McBurney, who arrived after  8  o'clock),  John  G.

There was no need'for official'bulletins  -after this.

Dr.  Mynter  tthoup-ht he might!last>until 2'a.' m. Dr..  Mann said, at 11 o'clock, that the president was still alive and would probably  'live an hour. Thus minutes lengthened  into hours and midnight came with the  president still-battling.agamst death..   >'  Secretary of the navy John D. Long  arrved at 12:06 a. m��� in time to see the  president still alive, though unconscious.  At this  midnight hour the Milburn  ���.house was the center ot a scene as animated as though1 it were midday, although a solemn hush "hung over the  areat crowd of watchers.'  MILBURN HOUSE, Buffalo, Septembei 14.���President McKinley died at 2 15  -a. m. His last conscious hour on eaith  was spent with his wife, to whom he devoted a lifetime of care. He died unattended by a minister of, the gospel, but  his last words were' an humble submission to the will of God in whom he believed. He was' reconciled to the fate  to which an \ assassin's bullet had con-  " der_"ne"d~himT^an"d~f aced~laeath- iTTTlue"  same spirit of calmness and peace which  marked his long and honorable career.  His last consciou. words reduced to  writing by Dr. Mann, who stood by his  bedside when they were uttered were  as follows: "Good bye, all. It is God's  will. His will be done. Not ours."  His relatives and members of his official family were at the Milburn house,  except secretary Wilson, who did not  avail himself of the opportunity, and  some of his close personal and political  friend, took leave of him. This painful  ceremony was simple. His friends simply ca'me to the door of the sick room,  took a longing glance at him and turned  tearfully away. He was practically unconscious during this time, but the power of heart stimulants, ncluding oxygen,  were employed to lestore him to consciousness for his final parting with his  wife.  He asked for her, she sat at his bedside and held his hand. He consoled her  and bade her good bye. She wen-t  through the heart trying scene with the  same bravery and fortitude she has  euc'ed his life.  The immediate cause of the president's  death is undetermined His physicians  disagree, and it -will possibly icquire an  autopsy to finally (ix the exact cause The  president's remains will be taken to "Washington and there will be a state funeral  Vlce-pre.idcnt Roosevelt, who now succeeds to tho presidency, may take the  o.ith of ofllco wheiever he happens to  he���r the news Thu cabinet will, of course,  resign in a body and president Roosevelt  wrll h,ive an opportunity of forming a  new  cabinet if  he  so  desires  The i.igc of the people of Buffalo against  the president's assassin when they learned todav that he was d_ing was boundless Thousands surrounded the jail and  the police foico of the city and two regiments of soldiers were necessary to secure  his protection  Vice-President Eoosevelt.  NORTH CREEK, New York, September  13.���Vice-president. Roosevelt, started at (J  o'clock this morning from. Tahawus Club  with guides on a. hunting trip through  the forest. On receipt of the dispatches  stating that president 'McKinley was critically ill, men were immediately started in  search for him. Up to 5 o'clock It was  impossible to locate him, but. he was  ilnally found on the top of Mount Garcy,  a  distance  of  ten  miles: from  tho club  house, at which point the dispatches from  Buffalo were delivered to hhn_: The vice-  president immediately started for the club,  at which teams were waiting to convey  him with the quickest speed to a special  train. ,  BUFFALO, September 13.���There Is little  possibility * tonight that vice-president  Roosevelt will get here. Anstey Wilcox,  who entertained the vice-president when  he was hero last, says that the best" information he had -was that. Mr. Roosevelt  could not reach here until late in the  morning. -The vice-president would be  unable to reach a railway station > much'  before' 4 o'clock in- the morning, and this  would bring him here about'7 o'clock. Mr.  Wilcox said in explanation ot Mr. Roose-''  velt's being so far out ��� of' touch:�� "The  vice-president was at all times very optimistic, and when ^he went away he was  -absolutely positive - that ' the president  would recover, and*that lie would recover  rapidly. lie certainly never expected today's result." * ,/< * x ' f  There was no longer a doubt, thati In  the approaching death of the president a  complete change in1 the executive administration *of the government would ensue J  Whon Mr. Roosevelt would take the oath  of office was wholly'a, matter of conjecture Vice-president Arthur took the oath  at 12 a. ro after the death of (president  Garfield, and ln that case Mr. justice Brady'  of New York administered .the oath. There  is no requirement that; the oath shall *be*  administered by'a justice of < the United,  States ^.supreme court, although that pro-^  rcedure is adppted when circumstances'per-'  init.- Without unseemly - haste, the "cabl-,  -net ��� will ' tender their resignations,., and  the new president' will then -he free -to,  initiate his own policy and choose his own  cabinet.                  *  WASHINGTON, September 13.���The 'fact'  that the'physicians had'given up all hope  caused 'some discussion among the public  men in the city of the probability t ot 'an,  extra' session   of   congress   and   of   early  changes in f the cabinet;,tiut the ^concensus  of  opinion  was   that  no ^cabinet 'changes'  or important  departures  in public policy  were at all likely for some, time to come,1*  and, that congress would' not be assembled  until,its regular 'session in>December.

Ltd.  Nelson, B   C.  Theodore Roosevelt is president of the  United'States, -the third'vice-president;  /who ,has been,made president by_ the  hand  of an assassin.    In -April, ��� 1865,  Abraham Lincoln was assassinated while  _-Witnessing.a=playTat-*Ford's-theater;-his-  assassin being-Wilkes Booth, an actor.  Booth was an ardent Secessionist, and it  is supposed that, seeing- his cause'was  lost, he killed the president for revenge.  . In July, 1881, James' Abram Garfield was  ���shot -In a .railway station in Washington and death resulted eighty days after-'  wards.   The man who fired the shot was  named  Guiteau,  a  disappointed  office-  seeker.   A week ago William McKinley,  while attending the Fan-American exposition, was shot by an avowed Anarch  ist, and his death ^this morning makes  the third, president of the United States  killed by an assassin's bullet,   Andrew  Johnson succeeded Lincoln as president,  and during his term of office he was in  constant friction with congress.    Chester A. Arthur was vice-president when  Garfield died, and he left the office ,of  president a disappointed man.    Theodore Roosevelt has over three years to  serve as president, and it is to be hoped  that he will administer the high office  with the same fairness and intelligence  that characterized his administration of  the office of governor of New York.  Bernard McDonald as financial secretary of the Bodie Miners' Union and  Bernard McDonald as a leading member  of the Mine Owners' Association of  Kootenay goes to show that the spirit  of unionism was and is strong in Mr.  McDonald. But "Barney" is not the first  good union man who has gone astray by  associating with those who are bad and  wicked. He began associating with bad  men in Bodie and is now associating  with wicked men in Rossland.  *************$**.***********.  w  Hi  '*_  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  .tH___  .Hi  *  Hi  Hi  Hi  Or  tir  Hi  Hi  Hi  0/  Hi  THESE  ; HOT DAYS  YOUR  THIRST WITH  Anheufler-Bnsch  Boer, Pabst (Milwaukee Beer.

HOWLAND  _>.___ WILKIE   In the Boer Cause.  The London Daily Telegraph of Aug-  lst 27th, to hand by the  last  English  ���nail, contains the text of the remarkable  nterview with Paul Kruger, ex-presi-  lent ot the Transvaal Republic, had by  .he correspondent of that paper at Mr.  Cruger's rotreat in Hilversum, Holland.  I.he  interview   is such   an  astounding  ?iece of impudence m the part of the  |aan who defied the whole strength of  he British Empire, while taking prec-  ous good'care of his own person and  tartune, that it is worth preserving as  [i part, of the history of this remarkable  var.   The correspondent says.  Ex-President Kruger looked stronger  nd healthier today than at any time  nice his ai rival m Euiope.   He hsten-  d to my questions with keener interest,  Uiswered them in   grcatei   detail,   and  ivith fuller emphasis, and leasoned with  ���lore curious dialect skill than ever be-  lore.   The weather must have had some-  lung to do with his hopeful mood, but  ns general health and completely re-  toied eyesight are the woik of his own  ion   constitution,   aided   by   medical  cience.    To  South Africans  cloudless  I'unshme is an absolute necessity ofMifo,  hey^ are meloncholy and ��� miserable  in  he mists and fogs and chilly' blasts "of  he noith.   And today we enjoy a blaze  |-f dazzling light and   schorchmg  heat  i.uch as constitutes the nearest approach  o a summer's day in Petona that one  an hope to behold" in   the   lowlands  ound the Zuyder Zee.  In the villages   which   I   passed-* on  [.inning aside"to  S'Graveland I  noticed  ;hat the cottages ^ and   common   dwellings are all picturesque, each oneiwith a  [shape, *caloi, and - surroundings   of   its  own. v The eye is caiessed and delighted  at sight of the quaint old archways, the  historic draw bridges, the solid oaken  doois, the eighteenth century windows,  the fantastic   gables,   the hand-carved  stones,   the cuiious'vlniches, ,and, cosy,  'nooks overhung, with '-woodbine or Vir-^  gmia , creeper,  and the old "Dutch' tea  houses built on-'the water, with a neat  little"'recess for. the-hbuseboat* beneath  the principal room, all as trim and tidy  as if they were to be taken  off bodily  to an exhibition    Thek women-folk sat  outside their (houses preparing vegetables  for the midday meal  or sewmg,  knitting,   and   embroidering.   Through  spaces in. the well-tended flowers that  frame in the windows and sweeten the  air that enters one catches,an occasional  glimpse  of a massive oak cupboard, a  hne old mediaeval fireplace or a great,  family Bible, oi a piece of snow-white  lace. -Outside, the children aie playing  on a plot of grass, fishing in the canal,  or driving in miniature carts drawn by  p-oats or dogs.   In the pastures beyond,  the heat-oppressed cattle���created, as it  were,  in  the likeness  of those which  , Paul Potter loved to1 paint���are huddled  up under the ccol shade of an outspread-  ing beech The most historic building m  the whole district is the" curious ship-  shaped house in which one of Holland  gi eatest men, admiral Tromp, once lived  It is sunounded by water, surmounted  bv a gilt ship, and the name of its first  tenant   has   been   given   to   Hilversun,  Trompenberg, on the summit of which  now lives the most notorious man of  Dutch, South Africa.  IN CALM RETREAT.  It -is m this calm retreat that the once  powerful president of the Tiansvaal republic is spending the> remaindei  of a  chequeied life that once gave promise  of a brighter evening, beset with memories of what has vanished'and thoughts  of what might have been. Were it not  for his elevated position and the two  flags   of   the   South   African republics  lianging motionless in the breezeless au  the light yellow house m which Mr. Kruger resides may be said to be the most  modest and least noticeable of all the  villas of Hilversun.   "Casa Cara," as it  vs called, is but a boarding house foi  jummer visitors, which has been hired  jy Mr. Kruger and his suite. It commands on one side a fine view of the  woods of fir and beech, and overlooks  an the other a vast stretch of moor cov-  ared with heather in bloom, and open to  he sweep of the salt sea winds. In front  jf the house is a plot of grass and a few  .vhite and red roses, which are already  ���egmning to fade. Silence reigns around,  lot a soul is to be seen anvv  ate president's desire for seclusion is  espected by the whole population, who  lever take undue notice of him during  lis daily walks or diives.  I found Mr. Kruger seated in a chair  u his little parlor, which was very simp-  y furnished, after the traditional manor   of  boarding  houses  all  over the  zorld. He was dressed in black and woie  ho jeton of the order of the Nethei-  mds Lion in his button hole. The first  nipression  made  by  the  strong,  hale  cavy built man, whose grey locks are  s dense as they may have been sixty  cars ago, was that of the unrepining  Tstlcssness of one whose thoughts are  |urne<l gravewai-ds. But the moment he  peaks the impiesslon changes. His very  l.ok, word, gesture was vehement to a  legree, and seemed to have sprung fiom  lont-iip passion and to be subdued by  l.ttled pain.   The heavy" gutterals were  Juried forth like lava from a seething  lolcanOj  while the sneaker nervously  |_tsped his -left _ta^__--nlth Ids right  "V  His every phrase bore the hallmark of  the mint in which it was coined;, it was  a quaint apophthegm, a popular proverb,  or a scriptural text The source of them  was" all his own mind, untouched by external influences. Hence he would close  his eyes when speaking, as if to shut off  outside impressions and to seek within*  himself for the ideas that he should utter. Then they would come with a rush,  phrase following upon phrase, without  pause or graduation of tone, harsh, powerful, emphatic, ending as abruptly as  they began.  "STRONGER AND BETTER."  My first inquiry had reference to his  health, and to the marked improvement,  which I noticed in his general appearance since "I last saw him.  "Yes," he replied, "Lam very much]  stronger and better in every way, al-.  though   not   quite   restored  yet;' but''  thank God, the progress is still going on.  and I have reason to feel thankful."    , *  After one or t*yo other remarks on unpolitical topics, I turned the conversation on to lord Kitchener's" proclamation  and   inquired   whether   tbe   objection  which Mr. Kruger had to urge against  it was based on considerations of international law.  He looked at me for a  moment in astonishment, and asked me  to repeat the question   A momentary  shudder seemed for a moment to con-  'vulse his powerful frame;, he closed,his  eyes, his right hand clutched his left,  and then in loud staccato tones he answered:  1 "International law' I am not learned  in the intricacies of international law;  but'unless it be very different from the  rudimentary law of humanity it must  condemn as a crime the attempt to add  arbitrary pains and penalties to'the"  awful risks -v.ta_-.en" py men who are*  ..fighting for their homes,,their families,  and their country. Your government  has recognized" them as belligerents;  now this proclamation declares that they  will be shot as belligerents-when possible, and when captured punished as  rebels as well. And over and above,  they are to be��� continually weighed down  .with the_thought that in offering legitimate resistance 'they are bringing tdownJ  rum on their.wives and children. Is  ���this m accordance rwith international  law? If so, international lawlessness  vwas better, fonthen the right to,defend  .one's country was.acknowledged* by all,  and though its exercise meant death in  the field, it did not entail banishment  for rebellion after open** warfare had  done 'its.,worst."   ' -   ,' \  ���   �����   \  "NOTHING HAS CHANGED."  "But it"is alleged in the preamble to  :he    proclamation    that    things    have  changed   very   considerably   bince  the  ivar fust broke out," I urged; ."so con-  cideiably, indeed, that the war properly  *o-calle_  is  over, *anu-a guerilla-warfare is taking its place" , ,  "Nothing has changed except the attitude of the British government," replied  VIr.' Kruger,t with emphasis;   "nothing,  .othm_     We follow today the tactics  ,ve followed m the very beginning. You  -ailed them military tactics then;  you  aamc them irregular warfare now. They  are the tactics of,defense    They have  -'i ever���changed:���-We-are-defending-our  country, and employing the most efficacious means of doing so.    This is admitted by military expeits.    The English people would do the same in our  **lace    How would they feel and Si-e_k  if their legitimate^ resistance were rot  only  met  by an .overwhelming armed  force, but brandmarked as rebellion besides." -  "NOT PREPARED TO JUDGE."  There was a* pause which I broke by  asking:    "Do you imagine, then/i that  j;he   motive   which   actuated" our,, 'gov-  ornment m issuing the proclamation���"  "I an*, not prepared to" judge motivfes.  That    will - be    done    by   God,    who  searches , hearts.    Acts   alone ��� can   be  weighed *by men.    Those of which we  complain have been,done in the eyes of  the world, and the world will appreciate  Lhem,   has   already   condemned   them.  Ever since the capture of Bloemfontein  the British have trampled on the code  of international law.   They have burned our farms, broken up our families,  and   treated   ourselves   as   criminals.  Your papers are  often jubilant about  the seizure of transports of provisions,  of   cattle,   and   such   like.    It   sounds  like an incident of war.   But in truth  it   is   something   very   different.    Our  fighting   men   have   no   commissariat  They live from hand to mouth.    It is  not  for them that the provisions are  being   sent.    Most  of  the   transports  now taken are the food of women and  children.    It is they who suffer when  these victories are scored.    It is their  defeat which corresponds to your easy  victory."  "WHAT IS REGULAR WARFARE,"  "But the numbers of your fighting  iren' have dwindled down very considerably," I uiged, "and this is given as  ono of the grounds for the action taken  by the govornment The warfare now  earned on can no longer be regarded  13 regular.''  "Not regular?" repeated Mr. Kruger,  with a look of indignation and a voice  of thunder. "What, then, is regular  warfare? Will that new principle be  logically carried out to its last consequences' If so, what minimum of soldiers are required for a regular battle'  How many open battles for a regular  war?

They are smaller now  than they were; that is the fortune of  war.- Moreover, small though our forces  .are, we have been forced to divide them,  'injorder to resist the enemy, who has divided his powerful - army into separate  bodies,   distributing   them ^throughout  the country.   That Is a measure which  is  unavoidable,  and ^ from  a  military  point of view correct.    For all the essential factors of, regular warfare are  to' be  found'in our ^ resistance-today,  just j as completely as they were in the  beginning.   Our soldiers are 'command- *  ed by officers, the oflicers are led by  generals���everything, in a word, is done  in accordance with the, strictest rules  of regular warfare, ayo, and1 of civilized  warfare, and .theresults,bear out what  I'assert.  , Were" our successes at Bron-  kers  Spruit or  at Vlakfontein, irregular?,   Were the fourteen prisoners we'  took at' the beginning of this week irregularly taken?    No;'the "war is  as'  regular!as any struggle ever yet maintained by-,a brave people j fighting 'for,  their freedom, and* no one knows'that  better than the forces combating against  us."  KITCHENER'S 'PROCLAMATION?  "You v will admit, however," I urged,  "that-the majority of the burghers care  anxious for peace, and, have shown this  desire by their complete submission to  the rule of his majesty's government.^  "No, I do not admit anything of the  kind, and if -I, did .the -proclamation it-.  3elf would contradict me as well as the  facts...The proclamation,threatens with,  banishment the members of.'our* govern- i  ment'and the.,of_,cers of our army. There  is,  therefore,   a  regular  machinery of  administration and-regular, army, even  in^the^view of'the'authors of that document' "What   support,, then,   in   fact,  can-Ttheftheory of banditti and lawlessness hope to find?    The truth is, and  'you   know   it,   that   our   officers   have  -their men in control, as our government  ��� still leads our. people >  If ,we have' stil.*  fighting men enough in the,field to keep  a (vast army busy, an_>__ there are so  many thousands dragging on a miserable ) existence  in  banishment  as  prisoners of war, how can it >be said, with  -ti uth ,that ;the ..majority of .our ��� burghers  ,a**e I still  living  peaceably 'under   the  ���control of his,majestyls forces,, or are  eager to abandon-the*'struggle'   No, no,"  ^no;   they  were  eager,   very  eager, ,to  avoid  the  combat  and <to , keep ��� 'what  could   be  kept i by \ honorable - compromise;   but they are just as eager., now  to make every sacrifice ^hat, man can  make to retain .the blessings that*'God*  bestowedt upon\them,  and* freedom'.,- is -  the-first of these.    I ask-you yourself  to look and, judge���has anything happened "of late to justify.^tlie issuing ,of.  the proclamation?    On our side, nothing; absolutely nothing."  .    "Very well," , I (remarked, "supposing  ������that is so. May I ask,whether you (think  that the proclamation will have the effect   looked   for,1 or  the   opposite, ^or  none at all?" 'j   j._      , ���.  / "Whenever it becomes known to the"  men who have tin own themselves* between death and the two republics, It  can have but one effect; it .villi embit-  _ter_their_minds"_str_ngthen_theirlarms,  and intensify their lesistance, if it be  still capable of being intensified. The  threat of future fines has no meaning  for men who carry their lives in their  harids, and fear* none but God.- The  threat of perpetual banishment will  make them fight until the grave is  then home That is the only possible  ellcct of the .proclamation on, the soldiers in the fleld."  "WE  ARE  FREEMEN."     '  "May Fask,whether it, is your~inten-  tion to take'any action in the 'matter���  to  issue a proclamation, for example,  or to publish a protest?"  "The question of protest is still under  consideration, but that is a matter of  little import to our burghers. So far as  they are concerned, I have no need to  take any such step, ft Is not for me to  instruct the men in the duty, in which  they have been discharging bravely, at  the risk of death and of hardships ��� even  much worse' than death. They do not  look to Europe for approval, blame or  instructions. (Besides, the entire machinery of our 'government is on the spot,  working without a scnous hitch,  and  they will do_ what is needed in the matter,  irrespective of the decision/ taken  here  in  reference  tj) the  question   of  protest.   Their ranks have been thinned  by death and capture, but the vacant  places have always been filled up again.  The individual man is little,  it is the  cause that is great, and though all the  men should be killed off, it will live-  again in their children and their children's children.    We have been grievously sinned against since the taking of  Bloemfontein.    But the blackest crime  committed against us is%the fssumg of  a proclamation which Ignores the fact  that we are freemen who have an inalienable right to fight to ,'Jb'he last for  our homes and our country.    We won  that freedom in'1852 and. ,1854.    It was  recognized by your people.-  In 1884 it  was again solemnly proclaimed hy the  British nation.    Indissolubly bound up  with it was the right to defend our independence.    And  nowf|we  are   being  treated  as   if   that   elementary  right  had no existence.   It is a crime, a black  crime, a crime for which there Is no  pietext."   Here the ex-president's voice  trembled with passion, his right hand  clutched  his left convulsively, and he  seemed   completely   overcome   hy   his  feelings.  "HE .WANTED PEACE."
