Lena Niy the War in South Aira a Nas now entered upon a new phase a. Phase of Len Confidence and Anvi y on the part of the Boers. Any important reverse to tue a Niihau arms u out of the question Bat that i users Wilt happen and lives ret be lost is evidenced by the recent mis Fortune to Clements column at la gales Inorg resulting in the burial of 83 Kritch bodies on the Field and the arrival of 196 rounded in Pretoria. Detached pets axe sting captured convoys destroyed at intervals everywhere but the final remit of the War is in no Wue affected by three happenings. We Are not now fighting a nation buoyed up by Hope of Success but we arc grappling with scattered Bogie of men racing War. Not for a Hope newly lost inde Eudece bus with the of Erie to do a much damage to the conquerors As they me buy can. Now to Cope with a foe sub u this the heavy irresistible machinery of regular warfare is useless and the yet eau now being adopted by lord kit Cacner u the Only solution of the difficulty. Large bodies of men with mules of cumbrous transport have Given War to ? Mobile he Les of mounted regulars and irregulars living on the country As the Boers live lighting not to Fain and hold positions but to keep the foe continually on the move and dishearten them by nights of unrest and Days of unexpected at tack. Throughout All the Fco Uca african colonies Are daring posters pasted up calling for recruit for innumerable irregular corps. Gradually too the lists till up and with just the sort of men to prosecute the War As i Mutt now be prosecuted. Uit Landers Bopes of return to the Rand have thrown in their lot in the ranks and toe Stern hand of rut Sileas repression will Toon make itself Felt. Suspected farms trill remorse Casidy be Burnt Stock driven from peaceful Homestead men expecting no mercy will meet those giving none. We May expect a few months of the Grimm est of guerilla warfare Bat from in very Grimness will be to n peace. Certainly England a difficulties in her new colonies Are now great greater perhaps than at any previous period of the War. Throughout the length and breadth of the land the pinprick of disloyalty throb alongside the deep thrusts of open enmity and Tae Poison of the former is More insidious and difficult to Deal with than the latter. In the daily press of the Cape and Naal often appear speeches of prominent men prefab tag their remarks by loud claims to loyalty and yet openly inciting the enemy to continue in a criminal life costing resistance against a tyranny non existent. To these men More than anything else is the continuance of the War due always they encourage yet never help their suppress you is a thing very needful As witness these end invasion of Cape Colony doubt Lea consequent on the holding of tue Worce Ter Congress where speakers did not scruple to advocate the restoration of their free Dom to the republics and to pronounce the British cause iniquitous and tyrannical. 1 is freely said both by sex combatants Aad those who have been prisoners in the Boer lagers tha nothing but a strict system of Pouce patrol by the More obdurate of the burghers prevents very Miny of the enemy surrendering. Such being the Case severe measures should have speedy effect on a divided foe. And certainly any measure How Ever cruel it May seem that will pot an end to the spoilage now going on will in humane. A Small party of vandals can d so much harm if their sole object is de traction u borne out by the destruction at Rie Fontein. By a Small commando of mine property said to be Worth a quartet of a million Sterling. Doubtless the request of Kitchener Foi More. Colonial troops will come As a Shock to Australia but toe request has no alarm Etc . It is merely a tribute to tie mobility of colonial troop t and a recognition of the fact that thinking men Are now required not magnificently drilled troops dependent on those who Lead them. To digress some what much has been said on the superlative Merit of colonial irregulars but australians most it Raffer from Wollen Bead in consequence. For Quick mounted work the lightly equipped irregular is undoubtedly most useful but in protracted due Dong struggles the dec Ivoe of regulars must always be a powerful Factor. The coming months of guerilla warfare Wil not be without their uses. Officers and men must be in continual touch and in each others Confidence. It is an axiom in the British army that an officer must know his men but it is an axiom More honoured in the breach than in the Obser Vance. Amongst irregulars officers will soon learn to recognise that Side is at a discount and it is the Man that counts certainly unless they do their work will be of Small account. On the civilian inhabitants of the Transvaal and Orange River Colony the continuance of the struggle brings heavy trouble. Martial Law is a necessity Bat it is a very grievous one and provocative of much discontent. Here a Johannesburg we Are All on rations. True they Are plentiful enough but the whole town has to draw at the one store and the sight of Well born women and coarse and brutal men All Kluj Etling to Gether for the be Cestaric of Hie is pitiful. It is no uncommon thing for the drawing of rations to entail a whole Day s buffeting about in the midst of unwashed hebrews and Over scented women. The object of this rationing is to prevent the smuggling of food through to the enemy As was frequently done when an unlimited food sup ply was obtainable. A further object was to coat pc foreigners to seek the food supplies being allowed them Bat this a Aizic Evrard modified ? on Strong representation nude by the different con a. Conscription or what practically amounts to that has been initiated and every Bri Tish subject in Johannesburg has been compelled to become a member of the Rand titles the town being divided into six districts and each District having its own enrolling officer and Drill instructors.

Despite these precautions spies manage to sup in. Only the other Day one was caught masque Rading in full Gnu qom on the platform at Eiam Fontein when lord Kitchener s train was drawn up at the station. A few figures As to the present cot of living Here May interest people. The simplest of meals Cost 2s. 0j., even a cup of Tea and a few inferior cakes costing that Mudi. Fresh eggs arc cheap at 6n. Per dozen and butter at 7s. Peru. Grapes Are 3. Per lb., melons 5s. Each. The least one s Hoard and lodging can be done at is �10 a month washing extra and As a Rule it runs much higher. This is life in the towns. In the country it is far worse. Farming operations Are at a standstill and the poor Fanner however peaceably inclined can have no peace it Boer leave him alone he runs foul of the britishers and vice versa. Such a condition of misery cannot be permitted to go on and anti mentalists who talk of leniency to wards the Boers must now realize that the Only True course of kindness will be even cruel severity. In the words of a South african writer the enemy is beaten in deed yet a moment s respite allows him once More to crawl up. To the scratch. Until he has been knocked Down again and again until he can no More Rue it is foolish to talk of mercy lord Roberts at Madiera. The transport Canada arrived at Funchal on the evening of Christina.

The Field marshal who still wears his in a Sling was heartily cheered. there was a reception at the British Consu late where the British Community presented an address. The special correspondent of the daily Telegraph states that lord Roberts replying to the governor s address of Welcome spoke As follows i thank you Tor your kind reception. 1 feel that i ought to address you As new allies but 1 prefer to think of you As old comrades comrades who at the beginning of the Century fought Side by Side with us and who have cemented it Many a Izard Wou Battle that comradeship which has never died Between the people of the two nations though politicians have Only lately to Tho extreme satisfaction 1 Trust of both coun tries Given form to that Friendship.

Some of that respect for Portugal which the English army has always held. Again i thank you and wish this Island and its inhabitants much Prosperity to come and 1 would ask you to respectfully convey to your Well beloved Sovereign my most Bumble duty and sincere thanks Tor the More than kind reception i have received at the hands of his subjects of Madeira the daily mail correspondent wires 1 have authority for saying Ashe matter Tiaa a Nitt Myrh info fat it in Newt that lord Roberts never committed himself to the unqualified statement that the War was practically or virtually ended. What he did nay was that the War was Over so far As the organized forces of the enemy were concerned out that Guerilus warfare the hard est of ail to Deal with still continued and would probably continue for Many months longer. Lord Roberts far from underestimating them realizes fully All the difficulties with which lord Kitchener has to con tend. He was. However grieved to learn of the great losses sustained by the British at Nooitgedacht on the occasion of the mis Lisp to Gen. Clements Force but be regards the numbers of killed and wounded How Ever As proof that the Northumberland fun Ilien the mounted infantry and the other corps engaged fought splendidly How the canadians saved their guns. The Sharp a Gnong m be \ Alley near Beji ast. On november 6, was marked by gome plucky work by general Smith Dorrien s Uina Diany. Who formed the rear guard and toiled a. Mart determined at tempt by the Boers to capture a gun. The foil Winz details of the action Are Given by a Canadian officer t the rearguard of Lieut col. Lessord consisted Only of 70ro.ral Cana Dian dragoons with a Colt gun and two guns of d Battery Royal Canadian Artil Lery and soon became most closely pressed by the enemy Boers showing themselves everywhere and coining on with the greatest determination. At 10.40 -, seeing that the baggage and infantry were at a Safe distance the rearguard began to fall Back and As they did so the Boers be came More and More aggressive but die accurate and steady fire from the guns and the bold front of the dragoons kept them at a distance. The accurate knowledge of the country and folds of the ground which the Boers have All through the War been acknowledged to them in Good Stead on this occasion for some hundreds of them taking advantage of a dip in the ground running us from the Komyati bad collected directly in rear of our rearguard and thinking their Opportunity had arrived galloped out firing wildly from their horses As they charged their object being to Cap Ture the jct. It was at this juncture that the greatest gallantry was displayed by the canadians. The pins rapidly fired some half Dosen rounds at the advancing enemy then timbered up and reined As fast As their now Thorolf Janjy tired horses Wouk allow them and two troops Royal Canadian dragoons under lieutenant cock bum and sergeant bolder covered their retirement sacrificing themselves by fighting till All those who were Mot killed or wounded were captured by an overwhelming Force. By tins action the Canadian cavalry saved the Canadian guns for die next two hours a running fight was kept up till at 1.30 . The Boers made a Mott dashing and determined Effort to secure our guns galloping to Wittfo 200 Yards of them but Only to be driven off by a Squadron of the Royal Canadian dra goons under lieutenant Turner. Just at this time the Colt gun Umoh had been doing most excellent service in covering a retirement of the Fiew runs was Arnoot surrounded by the enemy Tab Eun was in action up to die last moment and the horse is so played out that to attempt to Reth e wry gun and Carriage would. Nare been useless. So with the greatest presence of mind and coolness sergeant Holland r.c.d., who had of Aarau of the gun detached the band from the Carriage placed it under ids and mounting his none Rode off with it under a Tail of Boer bullets.

Barton when a to Day when the Federal elections were Likely to take place replied that if possible they would be held about the Middle of april which would Nermit of parliament meeting Early in the following month. A Good Del difficulty was being experienced owing to the diverse electoral Laws in the different state. An endeavour would , be made to a non Are for the election to be held on one Day throughout the Commonwealth. If Cut a curl not be accomplished then in the different states elections for the Senate and a he House of representatives would if pos sible take place . 2so More delay than was absolutely newest Ary would take place in the issuing of the write and completing other arrangement. Sir Wil Liam Lyne bad been entrusted with All the detail work. He was making himself acquainted with the electoral system of each state and when be had completed his investigations he would submit a scheme for the consideration of Cabinet. Conditions at the Rand. A experts Dpi Vav or. T. J. Britten manager of the Wol Hutch Good mining company a member of the Uit Lander committee has remarks the daily news recently returned from to Nan Nesburg. He say he had Contact with the administration at various Points and he can justly say that the military men in charge Are deserving of Especial Praise for Tae manner in which they Are dealing with the most difficult problems. The sanitation of the town is being Well looked after crime is kept Down with a heavy hand and on the whole Johannesburg it being governed wisely and Well. No one is allowed to inter any unoccupied House without a per Mit satisfactory to the military authorities and so stringent Are the regulation that or. Britten was unable to remove his per tonal baggage from the Gold Field hotel to the Wolhuter mine without a permit. Theoe restrictions arc in Force to prevent thieving. ? most of the looting in the past appears to have been done just before Rad just after the occupation of Johannesburg and the bad characters that abounded since Kruger opened the gaols took advantage of the change of government and a mod Deal of robbery took place. Much of the stolen property has now been recovered and property of All kinds is cow Well protected. Railway smashing is often indulged in by the Boer round the town and the railway stations Are guarded by infantry but it is impossible to guard the line every Yard of the Way and while the Boer can travel 20 or 30 Miles in a night he is bound to find some unprotected spot. It is difficult to estimate the number of people now in Johannesburg and Neighbour Hood. Many of them Are dutch who have taken the oath of neutrality and delivered no their and so Long an they obey the Laws they must be allowed to remain. At the same time no one is allowed to remain once he is justly complained of. Most of there people have Money and can afford to pay for what they want. All foodstuffs come through the director of civil sup plies and under present regulation Only the smallest quantities Are allowed to any one. The object of this is to prevent any quantities finding their Way to the enemy and no private supplies Are imported beyond those by special permit for govern ment purposes. Or. Britten old not admit that he agreed with the complaint that Many Refu gees had been privileged to return. There had been cases of Man returning because they had been employed in some military capacity and some had probably got into Johannesburg on Lake pretences but of men belonging to the irregular forces and disbanded. In Johannesburg about half would like to get away if they could secure permit for the return journey when applied for. Military exigencies would not allow of a general return of the civilian Popula Tion nor would the mines or other Busi Nesses be m a position to Start or to employ labour because of the depletion of Stock for some time to come. While such conditions prevail it would be absurd for refugees to go Bank. Thousands of tons of stores must be accumulated to anticipate the needs of a Large population and it is useless for europeans in to umber to return unto natives in Large numbers can be Avail Able to restart the Staple Industry. Some 150.000 Kaffir will be wanted and the difficulty of securing sufficient labour to keep returning refugees at work will be almost a great As the difficulty of getting no sufficient supplies. Rests Are being paid in some eases by private arrangement. Govern ment dues Are being collected As far As Pras tic Nocle arid such taxes As the poll tax Are rigidly enforced on those who remained Dur ing the War. On the question of the wages of Whites or. Britten considered that no reduction was at All Likely or even in contemplation. He bad been informed in Johannesburg by a Resdon ble mine manager that it was distinctly understood that no reduction was thought of. Regarding the mines under proclamation Only pumping is permitted. No development is allowed. Rimi any attempt at repairs is made impossible by the want of stocks Anil mining requisite. The mines Are.

Whether it was imposed by or. Kid and called a free Trade Tariff or imposed by or. Barton and called a protective Tariff the effect would be very much the same Only in the one Case the protective incidence would be intentional in uie other it would not. They needed to look at these questions with More of commonsense and less of a try vehemence lie challenged any free trader to Frame a Tari which would Rah eight muons without living incidentally protective. The Only alternative was direct taxation. Or. Barton bad stated the first Tariff must be framed under the com Purina of circumstances and not a obedience to any fiscal theory. If they tried to make it protective they would not get Jev Cone. If they tried to make it purely free Trade they would Dis locate Industry in every Colony but new sooth Wale and Start the Commonwealth with a Lenry of hatred and antagonism which would be fruit Fol of crib for the future.

Asp to the editor. Sir a High or Low Tariff will be the ques Tion of the Federal elections and the duty of every elector is to demand a straight answer to Thi most important question Irvi an me Maui Naivs. V us so shufflers. Let us have men of principle with honest convictions. The end of the protectionists is moderation and. It is a hard task to define what they mean. It appears to me they Are trying to Gull re people. Our experience of moderate pro. Toction is that if once established it soon grows and we forget All about Modera Tion. We find All protected countries Stark on a moderate scale. Take America. Tit Iron Industry in 1810 asked for moderate duties which were fixed at 25 per cent but in 1819 these were to be reduced. The reduction wus postponed and instead of the Dutie being decrease they increased and rom line Are taxed a High As 100 and 350 per cent. In Victoria in 1868 tote moderate duty of 10 Ier Ceni. Was placed on til clothing imported. After three years it was raised to i2j per menu. In 1872 to 20 per cent., in 1880 to 35 per cent and m 1806 to 30 per cent. And in 1889, alter 20 years of Protection they asked for 40 per cent., but the government thought they would be moderate and fixed the duty at 35 per cent. The duty on furniture was in creased from 10 per cent in 1866 to 25 per cent in 1888, and that on woollens from 71 per cent in 1871 to 35 per cent m 1889 so we find that instead of the impost decreasing it has increased. Moderate Protection can never exist until human nature is changed. The above items Are Only a few of Many. How Long it will take these in Fant industries to stand alone is a query. 1 think they have become cripples and will always require the crutches and the older they grow the More substantial the sup port will have to be. We have a grand free Constitution and we must guard it from becoming blotched by that base Aad restrictive system called moderate Protection. Let us follow the example of our dear old motherland and walk in the foot Steps of Freedom and Justice. I a sir a j. R. Labsap. Prospect North january 3l
