The President took the position that every.. rightlfb.f American shipping must be protected; Capetown, Sept. Dotha today addressed about f.OOO of his con- stituents at Hank, iii the Transvaal. Tim gathering was unurecedented In the district. Five thousand fanners had come In overnight from all dlrec- Uciis. Including a strong commando of burghers. General Butha was wild- ly cheered again and again, partlcu- arly for several'minutes at the out- irt of his speech. Ho was obviously greatly touched by the ovation ho re- tived. General Botha said country and the people today "were faced 'with a state of affairs. There was a war raging at the present moment such as the world had never before as the human mind had never yet dreamed of. As part of the British Empire, General Hotha said amid cheers, South Africa also was part of the belligerents. Al- though this country was 1'ar away from the 20ne of war, they yet felt the effects of the war. and the 'longer the war the more they would feel its ef- fects. General Botha, amid cheers, said he desired his constituents to speak out freely atid straightforwardly. He wanted to know once and for all what was the good of talking, as some peo- ple did and trying to create hostil- ity against England. That could only provoke between Briton and Referring to those who talked of South Africa being neutral, General Botha said lie was not a simply a farmer, who used his comraonsense, and who desired to lead his people honestly and truly, accord- ing to'his lights." Hostility to England Is Ruin T0 him all this talk of neutrality was the greatest nonsense he had ev- er listened to. (Loud cheers.) When a few years ago, a prominent Dutch paper, "the Volkstem, preached neu- trality, he (General Botha) came to his constituents and expressed dis- approval of thae doctrine. Neutrality for South Africa was an utter impos- sibility. It a warshio came to Durban and imposed a levy of five millions on'them, it would help (hem very little to say they were neutral. Would if be noble or honest to act as some people suggested that South Af- rica should act, after the undertakings they had given in the past? What would hostility to England meau to South Africa? Ruin! He'detailed his'agreement with the Imperial government regarding the withdraway of the Imperial troops and the expedition to German Southwest Africa. Some people said the govern- ment should .have asked the country's but what was the good of a government, he askad scornfully that was not prepared to accept responsibility9 Loyal Way He was todays'responsible for tha Africa, That being so, he tiffied to put the uosi country lie was animated by a true and sin- cere love of his--people, and stooc back for. ho niau'lii his patriotism to South Africa, and he w ished them clearlv to undeisland that there were only courses open, one that 'o! foyalty and help and the other that of 'disloyalty and treason. There was no middle course, anc whoever-said there was, was trying tc mislead Now, which'course did they intend taking? They must give him a straightioiward answer (Loud 'cries want'the loyal course. have done: the right The tortoise had for once stuch its: head too tar put of its shell, and in grave danger of 'being trodden upon. Kaissr's Designs on South Africa .In exhorting South Africans to sup- port" the government, General Botha said he had information regarding [German ambitions concerning South ('Africa which would make their hair stand on end. (Cheers.) The fact of the Botha declared, amid tremeuflous cheers, that the Kaiser wanted to go down to a second Nap- oleon, Incidentally he wanted a place to which to send Germany's surplus pop- Cation, ar.d South Africa appealed to him as a suitable place. German, agents with their seditious talk were already doing, a great deal of harm In South Africa Surely the government ivas there not to shirk'responslbiHty, and to give the people a lead.

Would'they now, time they were faced with great troubles, stand-aside Surely that would not be the conduct of a gieat people a great history be- hind them such as they had. Today South Africa must prove to the British Empire, -which was watch- ing them, that thev were worthy ano stm more worthv of trust By doing so'they would create for.themselves a greater future than would ever other wise be possible (Cheers When war broke out thew could only be one answer to the Im perlal government's request that the Union should take certain positions In German Southwest Africa.

"I liavo never 'icft tlie people in ..the lurch when they wanted Hotha, amid cheers, "and I never shall."

Would that have been in the inter- est of the Union? (Cries of "No, Or the Imperial government might have asked the Australians, or have called for volunteers from am- ongst the English South Africans, and hey would'have got them. The Imperial govern- ment, instead, had. asked the Union to do the work, and he was proud to jiaye been, asked. (Renewed cheers.) Dutch Element's Loyalty General Botha earnestly 'warned South Africans against the new sort of doctrine being preached In South Af- rica, namely, the doctrine that the ma- iority should" submit to a minority. That could only lead to ruin. General Botha emphasized the import- ance of that gathering. He wanted them, to speak with no uncertain voice. Their decision would lave great influpnee throughout South Africa, and would go forth to tbe whole Empire. (Cries of "We sup- port Though the Dutch South African could not be expected to 'be so en- thusiastic as the English South Afri- ca'n, still he loyal, and they did not want lip loyalists or fair weather patriots.

"The British rgovenment must he able to look straight into our eyes and he able to see what is m our minds.'-' (Great cheering, lasting sev- eral minutes.) In passing, General Botha said the Union would want to have a voice in the final disposal of'German South- west Africa but 'what say could the Union have if it sat with its arms Fo'.ded-iu neutrality?

General Botha aroused enthusiasm by on what Holland, Bel- gium, and Prance did. for the Boers during1 the war of 1899-1902, and con- trasted, this with Germany's absolute hostility when she saw how the tide was flowing; There. coii'M "be no lib- erty under the Kaiser, and" the people Who desired to aee Germany victor- ious wjct'ug in conflict with their own interests. Genera!

General Botha then referred drect- ly to General Beyers. He said he "was grieved that his .old comrade, with whom he .had gone through war, 5hould liave taken up, such an atti- tude. He had-shaken the discipline, of the-Defence Force. He had issued a letter .which, was simply a political manifesto, evil'in effect, and by his conduct had.greatly hurt him.
