Sci talk Burger the late Vic Epresi Dent of the defunct Transvaal Republic presided and tie gathering included Gens. Botha and l e la Rey and Many Escom in andante. Some of the speeches delivered by the delegates were very bitter towards eng land though the general tone adopted was characterized by moderation. Jen. De la key in the course of an address re pretended the conduct of Many burghers at like conference in sneering at dutch members of the late corps of National scouts and stated that the Dele Gates we represent the whole nation. Gen. Botha stated that a general am Nesty for All Joers except three was promised at the vereeniging peace conference conditionally on their surrendering and making the declaration of allegiance. He endorsed Viscount Milner s scheme for the distribution of �3,000,000 to destitute burghers. Or. Schalk Bulger the chairman said that in his opinion the greatest amount of assistance for the poverty stricken people could be obtained by supporting the British government in its attempts to ameliorate the present conditions and the scheme of repatriation would have been successful had the Boers helped the government As they ought to have done.

Botha and Many prominent country dutch residents were present. In replying to a suggestion that he should accelerate the movement to secure for the burghers the fullest representative govern ment or. Chamberlain said it was embarrassing to raises in controversial questions prematurely. He advised the Boers to be patient and allow him an Opportunity to tudy the problems of the colonies. London january 8 in the course of his speech at the Quet at Pretoria or. Chamberlain said he had come to South Africa with a determination to listen to everything that could be put before him by representative men. He did not want the people to think that be had prejudged the issues that would be raised and therefore he could not be expected to make a very fill statement. He de nied that the British government had intentionally deceived any one As to the Grant to the burghers and stated that both lord Milner and lord Kitchener understood at he time that the �3,000,000 Wae to be advanced As a loan. But it was desirable that the parties to the terms of surrender should 4eel that they were being carried out in the spirit As Well As in the letter and recognising that the government had yielded to the representations of the Boon Leader. In return England expected that the hours would do likewise. When peo ple had War and been beaten they could not ask to to put in the same Posi Tion As they were in before. They roust remember that the victors suffer Cut As Well As the Defeated parties. Al though the new colonies had of course suffered materially he was inclined to believe that the extent of the burghers losses had been much exaggerated. He Drew Atten Tion to the fact that the value of land the principal asset of the Boers was now far greater than before the War and he maintained that it was premature to any that the Aid which the government Wae giving the colonies was insufficient. He pointed out that the gift of �3,000,000 was not to be looked upon Sis compensation i6v War Les and that it would be absurd so to regard it. The people England had to care for were the destitute and those who needed assistance in order that they might make a living out of tie land. He Laid stress on the fact that England had created an absolutely new precedent by assisting those wh6 were lately her enemies. The grounds upon which she was doing this were those of humanity and policy. He had come to Africa with the desire to Weld together the Kindred Peoples into one great african nation under the British Flag. The government s policy was one of Union and of conciliation for that promoted Union. Everybody desired conciliation but there was no conciliation in trying to meet the views of opponents if simultaneously friends were alienated. Cheers it was useless to make conces Sions if they wire to be interpreted As indications of weakness and utilized As a Means for advancing fresh de mands. He advocated not Only an Alliance but a fusion of the British and dutch races. He added that the Boer leaders had accepted As frankly As anybody could desire the result of tie War and the terms of the settlement and he accepted their assurances and believed they were a factly sincere. Cheers whatever controversies might be waged in the future he hoped and prayed that none of them would be on racial lines and he was sure Liat the Prosperity of Softli Africa de Pended on the realization of that Hope. Hear hear regarding the question of the new colonies contributing towards the Cost of the War or. Chamberlain said he would rather return Home empty handed than As the bearer of an arrangement extorted from an unwilling people. In conclusion he announced that Vise out Milner and he had agreed to a scheme for expediting the settlement of All claims for compensation for War losses. The Boycott of loyalists by submarine Telegraph received january 9, 2.15 . A new dutch Church. London january 7. The Softli african correspondent of the London Standard reports that members of the National scouts corps and other Boers who were Loyal to great Britain during the War have arranged a conference to meet on january 14 to organize 4 new dutch Church. This action is being taken in consequence of the refusal of the authorities of the dutch reformed Church to administer the communion to the scouts or baptize their children. The Standard s correspondent adds that there Are now two distinct castes of Boers in consequence of the split in the Chur i. The times is advised from Pretoria that the aloofness of the Boers in reference to the reception of or. Chamberlain on his arrival in South Africa was due to a feel ing of doubt As to their leaders attitude on the subject and that now that they have seen which Way the wind blows their disposition is to acquiesce in the status quo and show a spirit of passive loyalty.

Imperial 2 that the respective governments recognise the Wisdom of establishing factories and works for provid in ammunition and equipment for thei requirements in the course of his remarks sir Edmund Barton referred to tin1 Constitution and members of the de Fence forces in the Commonwealth and said that his government would no doubt to asked to provide More liberally for Volun Teer and Rifle clubs and less liberally for the militia. That was a tendency which to meant to resist. Or. Chamberlain subsequently took up the argument and carried the War into the visitors Emp. The prime minister fre flu cantly alluded to the colonies coming to the assistance of the Mother country. Scally that phrase was an inaccurate one. The question affected primarily the interests of tie different colonies concerned and secondly the interest of the Empire As a whole great Britain would not be Likely to ask for assistance to resist an invasion. The smallest proportion of her diplomacy was concerned a fit. Matters a Vicli were exclusively matters concerning the United kingdom. It was almost entirely in regard to matters in which the colonies were concerned. Or. Chamberlain concluded by saying it is easy to be too optimistic but i think any one who take3 even a superficial View of tie present state of the world must feel it is desirable that All in proportion to their Means should be fully prepared for any emergency Tho debate then closed but subsequently or. Seddom Clun to his proposals it was tentatively determined by consultation Between the Secretary for War and himself that new zealand should form a Reserve of 4.500 men for service in South Africa China and Canada but that it should not be regarded As part of and Imperial regi ments.
