and Assembly Rooms, under the management
of Messrs Slee, Norman anrd macQuarrie. was
celebrated by a "Socivl i op," which we are
sorry to say was not at all well attended-this,
no doubt, being, in a great measure, due to the
inclemency of the weather. The spacious and
commodious hall has been thoroughly renovat-
ed since last season, the floor particularly being
in excellent cond(lition. The room was taste-
fully decorated and dffrinz the evening Prof.

The fag end of 1895 has been productive of
much political importance. Last week the Ber-
muda and Halifax Cable has been reporting some
stirring news from Europe regarding the condi-
tion of affairs in South Africa. Dr. Jameson, en-
tered the Transvaal Republic to join the uprising
of the Utlanders, and his connection with the
British South African Co., made the situation
grave, especially in the failure of the project in
view. The German Emperor cabled the President
of the Transvaal Republic his congratulations in
the repression of this movement to endanger the
security of that Republic. As the Transvaal touch-
ing in its boundaries and Foreign policy is subject
to British approval to be given within six months,
this action of the German Emperor was construed
as unfriendly and calling for explanation. The
Queen addressed an autograph letter to her grand-
son who has replied in pacific terms, somewhat
apologetic. The diplomatic interchanges go to
show that this cable 'has been rather sharply in-
terpreted. Portugal made known her determina-
tion to remain neutral, this preventing Germany
using Delagoa Bay for military purposes. Cecil
Rhodes the Premier of Cape Colony has resigned
Dr. Jameson, who has been removed from his offi-
cial position, will, with his fellow prisoners be
handed over by President Kruger to the British
Government to be dealt with. The Secretary of
State for the Colonies has sent President Kruger
the Queen's personal assurance of her appre
citation of his course, and a suitable reply has
been received from the President of the Transvaa
Republic. The Governor of the Cape has been
energetic in co-operating with the Colonial Office
to terminaterthe difficulties which have arisen it
consequencelof Dr Jameson's expedition into thel
Transvaal. Our cables this morning give more
pacific assurances, the probabilities being an early
adjustment of the intricacies that have grown up,
The agitation will be productive of excellent re-
sults in cordially reconciling English people to
judicious expenditures in maintaining in full effi-
ciency British influence. It is astonishing what
powerful levers little things prove, such as this
cable of the German Emperor's to President Kru
ger of the Transvaal Republic.

going into a store near-by to make a few pur
chases when he stumbled on the icy street and
fractured his left arm at the wrist. Surgica

An Imperial Quarrel inBerl;n.-BERLIN, Jan. 4.
-Grave personal differences have arisen be.
tween the Emperor and his brother-in-law,
Prince Leopold. The latter refuses to partici.
pate in the military fetes.
Prince Leopold, guarded by military escort,
has been banished to his country residence
,under fifteen days arrest.
It has transpired that the Emperor has had
a serious quarrel with Prince FD ederick Leo-
pold of Prussia, the husband of Princess
Louise Sophie of Schleswig-Holstein, sister of
the Empress, over the recent accident to the
Princess while skating near Glenicke castle,
Potsdam, when the Princess and one of the
ladies of the court, Baroness Colmar, broke
through the ice and, came very near drowning.
It -appears that the Emperor upbrr.ided the
Prince far the indifference of his treatment of
his wife and. the Prince used some pretty
rough words in replying to the Kaiser's
The Emperor thereupon ordered him under
arrest for 14 days with confinement in a room
in his castle for that length of time. The
Kaiser immediately telegraphed for a detach-

dam to Glenicke castle to guard the Prince,
and he has since been confined there, not being
permitted to leave his chamber upon any pre-
NEW YORK, Jan. 7.-Local bankers take a
somewhat more hopeful view of the financial
situation, and many of them think there will
be no serious developments during the next

Carlisle for subscriptions to the new govern-
ment bonds.
But they admit that a steady drain on the
Treasury gold reserve would call for prompt
action At the conference between Secretary
Olney and the bankers in New York, on Sun-
day the latter gave assurance that they would
do their best to strengthen the gold situation
pending the sale of the bonds.

and instead of thinking of disbanding, as re-
ported, it is getting further subscriptions, an

Washington despatches to the Herald show
that the Treasury officials expect only a small
percentage of the new bonds will be taken by

LONDON, Jan 10 -The Times this morning
says "The main point for England to remem-

been made by an ostensibly friendly power to
depart from its neutral policy in order to facil-
itate an attack upon British interests in South
Africa. Great Britain must also remember
that unless the whole German demonstration
at Lorenzo Marques is to bear the illusory and

London Times.
Mrs. J. R. Green recently gave a lecture at
the Working Men's College on History in
Dress." The room was crowded.
Mrs. Green, in a comprehensive survey,
showed how dress, in respect of materials, col-
ours, style, and ornament, has been affected
by exploration, conquest, trade, incidents of
the battlefield, international relations, politi-
cal partizanship, the diffusion of wealth, social
distinctions, and the means of internal comrn-
muimiation. She pointed out that behind the
strange changes of fashion there often lay a
meaning which made a curious and interesting
Whenever there was a great interest in new
styles of dress some singular prosperity or in-
crease in trade had happened to the country.
- Before the Reformation, most people had very
little money, according to our modern ideas,
and they used to go clad in sober gowns cut
much after the same pattern. But this was
altered in the time of Elizabeth, when we be-
gan to trade with the East Indies, and to
receive the gold of Peru and the plunder of
Spanish dominions. Men -gave up wearing the
long gowns of their fathers, and copied the
fashions of Venice, France, or Germany. The
ladies adopted silk, satin, and cloth of gold,
painted their faces, and had their hair
wreathed and crested," and hung with bu-
gles and many childish gegaws; but the
piercing of the ears was "not so much fre-
quented amongst women as men." Great
ruffs stood out round the heads of women like
pillars of pride," strengthened by what the
Puritans called "the Devil's liquor," starch.
At this period came in pocket handkerchiefs,
silk stockings, fans, and ostrich feathers.
People in trade began to adopt the new
Two hundred years later, when we were
fighting Holland and France, new wealth
again showed itself in the splendour and cost
of our rich folk's dress. Women collected
their clothing from all parts of the earth.
The men were fully as smart, and wore quite
as many, bright colours-bows of riband and
silks and satins. Then came the romantic
imitation of humble life and its simplicity. A
wealthy man would dress like a shepherd and
Scarry a crook, but that was golden, and his
coat was of velvet and lace. Titled ladies,
made themselves into mock milkmaids, in silk
frocks covered with diamonds. Gentlemen
wore loose coats called "wrap rascals" and
gold-laced hats, slouched in imitation of stage
coachmen ;. others were mock grooms, in dirty
boots and spurs. A pretty fancy in women's
dress at that time and for hundreds of years
before was the wearing of aprons as part of
their smartest dress, as a symbol of the house-
wifery and dainty qualities of a capable and
well bred woman. Some men had their beards
starched and put in pasteboard cases over
night. A man appeared in St. James' Parkin
a coat loaded with gilt buttons, skirts long, a
scarlet waistcoat set off with gold lace, and
otherwise peculiar ; and he was a blacksmith.
T-1 i u th hi .' ^

found out of London.
In bur own days we saw the effects of wealth
and trade, and the lesson taught was that a
history of dress would be largely a history of
conquest, colonization, and discovery. But
other things had also influenced fashions. The
wearing of green by the Irish, of the Garabaldi
jacket, and of the colours called Solferino and
Majenta; and the imitation in England of
the styles of Napoleon III. and the Empress
were referred to ; and then it was shown that
when we were at war with France, fashionable
people went to look for models in Italy, Spain
or Germany, but went back to France as soon
as peace was made.
It was once part of the manners of a fine
gentleman to comb his wig in public places.
At one time a lady's hair was dressed for three
months at least, during which time it was not
in her.power to comb her 'head. At the time
of the first French Revolution we copied the
simplicity of the French peasants; and then
the flowing lines of Grecian and Roman dress
were copied by our women, so far as they
understood them. The love of good conduct
and morality affected dress in the cases of the
Puritans and the Quakers. The people who
from these motives protested against extrava-
gance did not invent new costumes; they
simply held -to what was customary in their
own class and time, The Judge's robe and
the clergyman's cassock represented old cos-
tiumes which were once common, Living men
could remember a Bishop preaching in a wig,
and the Archbishop of Canterbury wore one
at the Queen's coronation. The clerical broad
brimmed hat with a low crown was worn by
respectable people 300 years ago. The falling
collars-of clergymen and lawyers were common
in the time of James ., and the white bands
were survivals of those collars once worn by
all the laity.
Thud costumes thought odd were the re-
mains of what was once, common. Among
these were powdered hair, the big wig of the
coachman, the parlour maid's cap and apron,
the hats and coats of the beefeaters at the
Tower, the dress of boys and girls at charity
schools, the veil of the nun, and the Court
dress of a gentleman. In general, all were
survivals of something that was once common.
There was one motive which had seldom had
power to affect dress, and that was the desire
to discover and to wear what was beautiful;
and this was a lasting shame and disgrace to
Europe, for no gift of man was more lofty
than the love of beauty. It might be hoped
that some day, when the people have grown
intelligent and cultivated, they will understand
the value of true' beauty, dignity, and self
respect in dress, (Cheers.)

Brazilian diamonds are now being put to a novel
ani interesting use. A thin disc of steel, seven
feet. in diameter, has spaces at intervals of about
I1 inches. These spaces are filled in with pieces
of steel that exactly fit, and into these are set the
diamonds, fixed in countersunk screwheads. They
are arranged in groups of eight, and are so placed
that they do not follow one exactly after the other
in the cut, but each line takes its own course. This
kind of circular saw is used in cutting up blocks
of stone, and so efficient is it that in less than two
and one-half years one has cut four hundred and
twenty thousand square feet of stone, at a cost of
a little less than one penny a square foot. In this
time, however, it has been found necessary to re-
new twenty of the teeth, the average cost of which
has been about eight shillings per tooth,


At the Royal Colonial Institute a paper on the
defence of Trinidad was read by Col Alex Man,
member of the executive council and Commandant
of the Forces of Trinidad. The chair was occu-
pied by Mr Nevile Lubbock, and amongst those
present were Lord Loch, Sir H Green Sir F
Young, Admiral Colomb, Col John Davis, Col T
Cadell, Lieut Col D Wilson of Trinidad, and Mr C
F Monier Williams of Trinidad.
Col Man said that the island, the largest save
Jamaica of our Carribbean possessions, was sur-
rendered to us in 1797. Twenty years later we'
were holding it with a battery of Royal Artillery,
a Line battalion, and detachments of a West India
regiment; and the island itself supported a Militia,
composed of cavalry, artillery, and infantry, num-
bering 4,500 of all arms. Not a creole family of
consequence was then unpresented in the commis-
sion rolls. Sixty years of external peace and
internal progress, in which all the people had ac-
quired the rights of citizenship, enabled the Brit-
ish legions to be withdrawn with safety. The last
Line detachments left Port of Spain in 1889.

was based on the Volunteers, whose efficiency has
been raised step by step until the conditions of
service are somewhat more stringent than in Eng-
land. A commandant and other officers and in-
structors are provided by the mother country. At
the outset the proportions and relationships of the
police and the volunteers were carefully defined ;
and, although friction occurred, difficulties have
been overcome, and the "little army," as Sir
Charles Pearson call it, occupies a unique position
among the colonial forces of the Crown. There
are over 1,100 men; 1,000 odd are to be credited,
in about equal proportions, to the Volunteers and
the police, and the remainderare composed of Yeo-
manry. There are a Maxim gun detachment,
with two pieces, and a cyclist corps of 25, who
provide their own strictly uniform machines.
Volunteers are enlisted for a first term of three
years, and cannot be discharged earlier, except
under the warrant of the commandant, for except.
tional reasons. Sites have been selected for heavy
ordnance for the defence of Port of Spain. The
annual defence expenditure, excluding the police
budget, is 5,000. This, he hoped, would be
regarded as small when compared with results
which entitled Trinidad to be justly proud of her
"little army."
Admiral Colomb said Trinidad should have a
little army because then it could not be attacked
except by the landing of a much larger force, the
organisation of which could not be effected with-
out some notice to our naval forces. Batteries
were required to protect the entrance to the
harbour. Unless youAvere doing bad business"
you would not bring your expensive ship under the
fire of even a cheap bitter'. We saw this in the
lato Japanese War. There should be a perfectly
enclosed work for the colonial troops to retreat
into if necessary and shut themselves up in till
naval forces arrived.
Col. Wilson said the capital was in close proximity
to some of the republics of South America, and
it was important that it should not be exposed to
the risk of a cruiser coming and shelling the town
and shipping -
The chairman said be. had had to discuss with
the Colonial Office what was to be done in different
colonies when it was decided to remove our troops
from them. He hed expressed fears that Volunteer
forces would not be altogether safe forces to rely
upon but the experience of Trinidad had changed
his views.



Johannesburg Critic.
Hardly a week has passed since June 1, 1894-a
date which may be taken as roughly representing
the commencement of the Malaboch campaign-
in which it has not been found necessary to expose
and protest against some instance of cruelty and
injustice perpetrated by Boer commandants, com-
mandos, and officials against individual natives
and native tribes in this State. The whole makes
up a story of atrocious tyranny and oppression
which, let us hope, could only be possible on the
part of a white race that had grown up during one
or more centuries in a condition of hostillity and
warfare to the natives they are now oppressing,
and would be a disgraco to any white race at
The Government of this country is able to ex.-
ercise no control over i's own burghers. A native

the Transvaal press could, with one or two notable
exceptions, be relied on iu this policy of shielding

amount to infamy. The Transvaal press is in the
hands of capitalists whose one need is to stand in
well with this oligarchy. government; let it be
charitably supposed that individually the heads of
our great houses were unaware to what extent
their orders to their editorial staffs to uphold Gov
ernment were being ab-ised, but the fact remains
that with the exception of the Transvaal Adcertiser,
the Zoutspansberg Review, and the Cr'itic, every
paper in the Transvaal has adopted the policy th it
the Boer can do no wrong in his treatment of
the native, and has refused to even examine into the
most detailed charges of the mo t horrible atroci-
ties, though given with dates and names and wit-
nesses by us, so long as it could.
The British ublic is keenly eager to hear what
may be the actual truth and dimensions of the
evil to which their attention has so startlingly been
drawn, and the British Government has been com-
pelled to promise an inq.iiry, The indictment t for-
warded to the Coloni A Oill .e is a terrible one, and
it is sustained by the unanimous evidence of per-
fectly well-known and respected inhabitants of the-
Transvaal, who have only waited for sonim one to
take the lead and compel attention from Great
Britain, to come forward and tell what they know.
It is sustained, also, by lie involuntary evidence
of those very p,.pers of the Transvaal which hive
been most eager in the interests of their subsidis-
ing employers to burke all exposure of the kind.
The rumours as to the doings, in peace, of men
like Abel Erasmun have compelled them to join

There are theories, many of them. It is evi-
dently something of which we cannot take a part;
we cannot cut a piece of it off and subject it to
analysis; nor can we pour a little of it into a bot-
tle, for future study and contemplation. It is like
the wind, its effects can be measured ; its force,
strength, and quantity can now be calculated to a
very nice degree. Still to liken it to the wind, it
is a tremendous power, blowing as it were, with-
out moving, two ways at once along all parts of
its path ; giving cff a halo of magnetism at, right
angles to that path everywhere.
One of the nicest theories, perhaps, is the one
that considers electricity a "condition" of atoms'
brought about by chemical action, as in a battery
cell, or by what might be called a severe irritation
of the magnetic halo, as in a dynamo ;' and by
other means, such as beat and friction.
What this condition is, is beyond us; it may be
a violent rotation, or it may be an equally violent
vibration of atoms; probably the arc light would
prove it to be a vibration. But, as no man has
seen an atom at any time, not even with the most
powerful microscope, it is difficult to say. FriE.-
