Capitalists are said to be offering loans to the
government, and this is taken as an indication
that President Zelaya's po-ition is a strong one
and that he will be able to promptly quell the re-

these offers of money partLuke more of the nature
of forced loans than of a voluntary giving of funds
to support the government, though they admit
that some c pitalists may advance money with the
idea of securing valuable concessions in return.

SW The R M S S Trinidad was advertised to
sail for New York on Thursday last at 11 a.m., but
owing to the weather and unfavorable indications
of the barometer, was detained till Friday at noon.
Owing to the heavy sea then running at the East
end, it was deemed prudent to anchor in Five
Fathom Hole meanwhile. At 6 o'clock same even-
ing the weather had so far moderated as to admit
of her proceeding. The Trinidad is reported as
having arrived at New York at 6 a.m. yesterday.
The American barque S R Bearce, Capt Rose,
on a voyage from Turks' Islands bound to Bos.
ton with a cargo of salt, while running before
the gale on the 5th inst, grounded on the North
breakers; she bumped her way over and finally
brought up in nearly the centre of the reef.
The wind at the time was blowing a very hea-
vy gale from the N W, accompanied with fre-
quent heavy rain and hail squalls. The steam
tug Gladisfen, in command of Capt H Chester,
proceeded out to her assistance Capt Chester
described the water at the time "as one boiling
mass of foam." Anyone who had studied the
Admiralty Map of the North Reefs will easily
understand the perilous and plucky task the
Captain of the Gladisfen had before him to
pick his way through that seething mass of
foam and hidden boulders toareach the doomed
craft. However, the well-known coolness and
pluck of Capt Chester stood him in good stead,
and after several hours of constant backing.
going ahead and laying to, he succeeded event
ually in reaching the barque and taking on
board the captain and crew with their baggage.
Hie then started to feel his way back again
through the reefs. After a repetition of the
same hard task that he had experienced in try-
ing to reach the vessel, he regained compara-
tively safe water, from thence he )proceeded to
St George's and handed the captain and crew
over to the United States' Commercial Agent,
E W Willett, Esq, who availed himself of the
delay of the sailing of the Ss Trinidad (caused
by the storm) to ship the crew to New York by
Too much credit cannot be bestowed on Capt
Chester for his pluck and coolness in rescu-
ing the crew of the above vessel in the face of so
much danger, as it would have been impossible
for any whale, or gig boat, to have lived in the
sea that was ruuning at the time. Had he not
gone to the rescue, in all probability, the mon
would have washed off the vessel before morn
ing as the sea was making a bre tch over her.
If they had succeeded in remaining on board
their hardships would have been terrib e.
It must also be bone in mind the risk the
tug ran-the slightest loss of head, or bad
judgment on the part of the Captain would
have meant certain destruction to the boat and
probably to all hands on board of her, as she is
built of iron and had she cone in contact with
one of ths thousand boulders that she was sur
rounded with at the time a hole would have
been knocked in her bottom and she would
have, in all probability, gone down without the

To the Editor of the Royal Gazette.
March 7th, 1896.
A correspondent brings, through your columns,
to public notice the need of improving one of the
Avenues of approach from Hamilton to Prospect
by Fort Hamilton between Verandah House and
Hill House. There are, however, many more pres-
sing improvements than that one calling for
prompt attention. The most urgent is that of the
road from Pitts Bay to Hamilton, where the traffic,
at this season of the year especially, is heavy and
the risks of accident very great owing to the nar-
row width of the road, and its several sharp angles
preventing any lengthened straight sight. The
guests of the Princess Hotel and the helps of that
establishment are numerous and the incidental
increase of traffic, in consequence of the existence
of the hotel, calls for better road provision being
made as soon as possible, especially in view of the
rapid transit of bicycles. These roads were made
and thought quite good enough before the advent
of steam. But now that we are within two days
steam of New York and have a large hotel by the
wayside, the times are changed and we must pro-
gress with them. While the town of Hamilton is
fairly well lighted, the immediate suburbs are not.
The Legislature, next session, should do something
practical to provide, at least during the winter
months, for the lighting of the main approaches to
Hamilton in the interest of visitors, if that of our
own people is not considered worth much thought.
If we hold out inducements for tourists to visit
Bermuda, we should see that, as far as we can
reasonably do so, their comfort and their safety
are duly provided for. When private enterprise,
as in the case of the Princess Hotel, has supplied a
needed want, it is only fair that public spirit
should supplement what is required, and that the
public should supply what they alone have the
right to do. Private enterprise cannot interfere
with our roads. Their betterment lies with the
Executive Government on obtaining Legislative
o i" The Ludgate," for February, 1896, among
other interesting matter, contains an illustrated
article on Bermuda under the title of The Land
of the Lily and the Rose," by Roland Belfort. Not
without a few inaccuracies, it will nevertheless
serve to advertize Bermuda a little more. The
illustrations are: View from the Lighthouse, Ham-
ilton Harbour, looking East, with the Orinoco "

up to carry the fore ,:an'nnvy while the wharf ex-
tension was in progress; A Field of Lilies; A

House, view from the North Terrace, shewing

and rather good picture; The Royal Palms, the

aged to maintain it in position spoken of in the
text as 4 magnificent palms at Warwick ? A Rac.
ing Dinghy passing Albuoy's Point; St George's;
The Devil's Hole. Just a few extracts from the
Bermuda claims one distinction-it has es-
caped the visitation of the Salvation Army. But
the existence of public spirit and religious enthu-
siasm is attested by the handsome Cathedral
recently erected." Simultaneously with the pub.
location of the February Ludgate" was the
arrival of the Salvation Army officers in Bermuda,
who have established their head quarters in Ham-
ilton. The reference to the Cathedral would lead
to the supposition that a finished structure existed
as the outcome of zealous effort. Whereas we all
know full well that the channels of generosity
must flow a little more to lead up to the completion
of the Bermuda Cathedral-the Nave of which is
now happily in use for Divine Service.
There is one edifice which serves as a walking
stick maker's store, Mechanics' Institute and
Methodist Chapel." There is evidently a confusion
of ideas here. The old Methodist Chapel is oppo.
site the Mechanics' Hall, tenanted by Mr. Wolff ;
and the Bermuda Work Exchange under Mrs
Stowe's direction. The Walking Stick Store has
cut its stick, to add ante rooms to the Hall above:
where evidently the author has not listened tc
Commander Cheyne's polar experiences.
Bermuda has an aristocracy, composed of the
descendants of the pioneers and of certain colon-.
ists who made their money by blockade running
during the American war." Echo answers, Where
are they, particularly the latter enumeration ?
The assertion that the blockade running enriched
Bermuda is not new, but is without foundation in
fact. The whole was as transitory in its results to
Bermuda as the waking of a dreamer with the
dawn of the day.
Every visitor is struck by the excellence of the
roads-marvels of durability and good workman-

debris of the same material, which the Sun rapid-

Our mercantile friends will have to advertize a
asked that immediately after the race that the
ves-sel should be remeasured. It was measured
the next day, but not immediately after the
race, nor was anyone put on board the yacht
' to ensure that no change was made in the bal-
last. I have always thought that this was a
mistake on the part of the yacht committee,
ultimately there was an investigation, it was
decided that no ballast had been removed, and
that the eyes of Lord Dunraven and those of
his friends had played them false of course,
Lord Dunraven accepts the finding, but why
apologize ? Any owner in a yacht race has the
right to lodge an objection. He does so on
evidence that seems to him conclusive. There
is really no crime in this, nor does the fact of
the decision being against him require
him to apologize for having objected, as
well might it be said that if the dispute
between us and Venezuela goes to arbitra.
tion and is decided against us we are
bound to apoligize for having imagined that
what really belongs to Venezuela belonged to
us. Still more monstrous would it be for the
New York Yacht Club to turn Lord Dunraven
out of the Club in consequence of this dispute.
I believe in his bona fides, in that of the De-
fender, in that of the race committee and in
that of the committee of investigation. Why
then not let the whole matter drop. Reverse
the position and I should say precisely the
same to an English Yacht Club.

throughout these islands is reported as being

considerably. We learn of no casualties through

experience a few days of such rough weather, but
this year the record has been unusually long pro-

Saturday last, which have been pleasantly enjoyed
by our visitors, carriages and bicycles being out on
the roads in plentiful supply with not a few pedes-

as to the truth of a rumour circulated to the
effect that Prime Minister Crispi has been
assassinated The rumour had no foundation,
in fact Sig Crispi is enjoying his usual health
but is, of course greatly harassed by the trou-

he is a much hated man is generally conceded.
There was a renewal last night of riotous dem-
onstrations here against the government. The
mob smashed the windows of several buildings
and stoned the police. During the melee re-
volvers were fired. Thirteen soldiers and
policemen and two rioters were wounded. At
Pevia the mob tore up the railway preventing
the departure of trains. They cut a number
of telegraph wires. The rioters proceeded to
the prefecture of police and smashed all the
windows in the building. The police fired into
the mob, and, it is reported, many were
wounded. The greatest excitement prevails
everywhere Reports of disorders come from
all directions. Excited radical, socialist and
republican socialist members of the Chamber
of Deputies were seen in Rome last evening

MADnID, Mar 9--A large number of students

U.S Consulate, which i, was their intention to at-
tack. By meeting outside the students expected
to ward off suspicion atd to take the authorities

entering the city however, the authorities were
apprised of hbeir coming and they immediately set
a lrge force of gendarmes to defend the American
"cousolrte. They attempted to break through the
ranks of the (Guards but the gendarmes charged
upon them with drawn swords and captured
theirs banners. Several of the students were in-
jured by sword cuts. The students being repulsed
and prevented from attacking the consulate march-
ed to the park with the intention of burning an
American flag in that public place. But the
police charged upon them and forced them to take
refuge in an hospital. The rector of that institu-
tion negotiated with the authorities for their
peaceful and unmolested exit-the student agree-
ing upon their part not to creAte any further dis-

ini. The Government have fears of a renewal of
the hostile demonstrations and the authorities will
not make any complaint of the burning of an effi-

United States, lest such a course should arouse
popular resentment. The police dispersed a meet-
ing of students in Santiago Friday evening, injur-
ing several of them severely in the fight,
which was necessary to drive them away. There
is a great deal of excitement in the towns. The
government has approved a credit of 6,500,000
pesetas for the purpose of arming transatlantic
steamers as cruisers and is making other naval

crowd. It bore the inscription Alfonso 13 King
of Spain sic semper tyracis." At the close of a

THE ST. KITTS RIOTS.
Barbados Globe, February 24.
The papers from Saint Kitts furnish some
particulars of the-riots that were reported by
Telegram last week. We need hardly say
that the wages question was the origin of the
trouble. We are not told in the papers what
the rate of wages is in St. Kitts. A corres-
pondent says the people are paid when sugar
is being made by the hogshead, and in some
places three cents for every five hundred
gallons of liquor made. The same correspon-
dent admits that advantage is taken of the
laborers by a few that he calls the black
sheep of the profession." But on the whole
wages are as good as the low price of sugar
will admit, many estates- not paying. The
trouble began at the Pond and Need-unuet
estates, owned by a Portuguese merchant.
The people struck for better wages. This was
refused, and the cane fields were fired. Then
the wages were raised, and like a flash of
electricity the news spread over the Island,
with the result that the cane fields were burnt
out in every parish. Hundreds of acres of old
and young canes have been- burned. Gangs
of armed men then marched through the
country pillaging and threatening all peace.-
able persons. As they were not suppressed
they increased in lawlessness, invaded the
Town, looted the Portuguese shops, broke the
street lamps, and made threats to obtain what
they demanded. The Police Force was utterly
inadequate to put down the riots, or even
make prisoners. It was only when the seamen
of H. M. S. Cordelia landed, and arrested
some rioters, that the mob dispersed and order
was restored. Two rioters were shot, four
were wounded ; one of the sailors was shot in
the leg and several were wounded with stones
that were hurled at them by the mob. When
the steamer left things were quiet, but as a
matter of course confidence was not restored,
and would not be soon. The story is a sad
one, and the misguided people must suffer.
They have ruined the sugar crop, which was
the only hope of their getting employment,
and they have alienated friends. If they had
grievances there was a proper way of seeking
relief, and they would have obtained justice if
they deserved it. No part of a population
can be allowed to take the law into their own
hands, and any attempt to do so can only end
in defeat and disaster. These Islands are
passing through a terrible crisis at this time.
Estates are not paying the expense of culti-
vation. Proprietors are not getting, in many
instances, as much as will pay interest on
debts, and wages must necessarily be low.
The labourer undoubtedly suffers with all
others. But if he loses his head, and thinks
he will improve his position by rioting, incen-
diarism, and looting, he will soon find that he
has only aggravated his suffering. fie may
do great injury to property, and seem to
triumph for a short time; but it is a very
short triumph, and then the bitterness is
greater. The law-breaker must be punished,
and no man can sympathize with evil-doers.
We do not wish to reflect upon the St. Kitts
Authorities unnecessarily, but it does seem as
if they suffered from paralysis in their trou-
bles. Little effort appears to have been made
to check the rioters at the outset, when
rioters can only be checked, and if it had not
been for the blue-jackets it does seem as if the
rioters would have had things their own way.
If there was no force sufficient to keep them
in check, surely the respectable part of the
population could have been-enrolled as Special
Constables to hold them back till aid could be
procured from outside. In these cases action
must be prompt and firm at the outset, or the
difficulty is increased a hundred-fold. Our
people are impulsive, and easily hurried into
excesses. They must see at once that there is
a strong will to oppose them and a stronger
band than their own to meet their mnad
A NEW FUEL.
A revolution in the -:.n':ring world must oc-
cur if there be any truth in the report that a
French naval engineer, named d'Humy, has in-
vented a pressed oil-cake for use as a fuel on ocean
steamers. It is said that the fuel is not affected
by temperature, is smokeless and odourless, can-
not evaporate or cause explosions, and burns only
on the surface, giving out intense heat. A ton of
this fuel is equal to thirty tons of coal, and costs
between 30s and 40s. In the engine-room of a
printing establishment a fuel of this kind would
be very acceptable, if only on account of the little
dirt and dust which would result from its use.
A SHOOTING FEAT.
The directors of the Royal Aquarium have add-
ed to their programme a shooting performance by
two expert rifle shots known as Diana and West-
ern. The latter was the marksman who shot into
the Dowe cuirass when it was exhibited in 1894,
and the most interesting feature of the present en-
tertainment is the production of another cuirass.
This is worn by Western, who shoots into it with
a Lee-Metford rifle by hitting with a bullet the
trigger of a rifle placed opposite to himself. IHe
then opens the cuirass and shows it to contain a
small movable nickel steel plate in the centre,
with an aluminium c rating surrounding the cham-
ber to stop the splash of the bullet. Considerable
skill and dexterity are required by the performer
to hit the very minute plate, but this feat Western

WHO, WOULD NOT DIE FOR
W HiPPING HAM-SAND RINGHAM.
Who would not die for England:!
This great thought,
Through centuries of Glory handed down
By storied vault in moinurental fane,
And homeless grave in lone barbaric lands,
Homeless but not forgotten, so can thrill,
With its imperious call the heai ts of men,
That suddenly from dwarf ignoble lives
They rise to heights of nobleness, and spurn
The languid cou.h of safety, to embrace
Duty and Death that evermore were twin.
* Who would not die for England !"
Thus He said,
Who at the holiest of all English hearths,
The holiest and the highest, had been given
A seat, an English Princess for his bride,-
Now by that hearth weeping her widowed tears,
Bitter and barren as the winter rain,-
SIt is not meet that I, whom this famed Isle,
This generous, mighty, and majestic Land,
Ennobled as her son, should not repay
Her splendid gift of kinship. Let me go,
Go where they go, her world-researching race,
That slumber pillowed on the half-drawn sword,
And wake, at whisper of her will, to greet
Duty and Death that evermore were twin."
Who would not die for England !
And for Her
He dies, who, whether in the fateful fight,
Or on the marish jungle, where She bids,
Far from the encircling fondness, far from kiss
Of clinging babes, hushed his human heart,
And, stern to every voice but Hers, obeys
Daty and Death that evermore were twin.
S across the faI->ff foam,
Bring him hither, bring him home,
Over avenues of wave-
English ground-to English grave;
Where his soldier dust may rest,
England's Flag above his breast,
And, love-planted, still may bloom
English flowers about his tomb.
Who would not die for England, that can give
A sepulture like this! mid hamlet crofts,
And comely cottages with old-world flowers,
And rustic seats for labour-palsied limbs,
The pensioners of Peace I linger here,
Pondering the dark inexplicable Night,
Here by this salient grave-girt sanctuary
Whose vanished walls were reared anew by Him,
Df Princes the most princely, if it be
That Wisdom, Love, and Virtue, more adorn
Sarcophagus of Kings than dripping spears,
-Than wailing hearths and hecatombs of slain.
And He too died for England, He who lived
Scorning all joy save that great joy of all,
The love of one true woman, She a Queen,
Empress and Queen, yet not the more revered,
,Not the more loved, for those resounding names,
Than for the lowlier titles, Gracious, Good,
The Worthiest of Women ever crowned.
Sweetest Consort, sagest Prince !
Snows on snows have melted since
England lost you-late to learn
Worth that never can return ;
Learned to know you as you were,
Known, till then, alone to Her !
Luminous as sun at noon,
Tender as the midnight moon,
Steadfast as the steered-by star,
Wise as Time and Patience are ;
Deaf to each belittling lie,
Deaf to gibing jealousy;
Brooding only on the goal,
And, like every lofty soul,
Scanning with a far-off smile
The revilings of the vile.
Yes, He too died for England! thence withdrawn
Dim to that undiscoverable Land
Where our loved lost ones dwell, with wistful
And lips that look, but speak not.
Away from these soft-whispering waves that
A dulcet dirge around the new-delved grave,
To bluff East-Anglia, where on wind-swept
ThPe sanguine crocus peeps from underground
'To feet the sun and only finds the snow ;
An4, whinnying on the norland blast, the surge
Leaps against iron coast with iron hoof,
As though the hosts of Denmark foamed afresh,
Caparisoned for ravin And I see
A cradle, not a coffin, and therein
Another Child to England; and, veiled Fate
Over it bent with deep-divining eyes,
AA 'with oracular lips, like nurse inspired,
Foretelling the fair Future.
Another Albert shalt Thou be, so known,
So known, so honoured, and His name shall
The sponsor to your spotlessness until
Dawns the full day when, conscious of your
-Your soul, your self, and that high mission
On all of such begetting, you can seize
The sceptre of your will, and, thuswise armed
Against the sirens of disloyal sense,
Like to your pure progenitor abide
In God's stern presence, and surrender never
at last prerogative of all your race,
To live and die for England !"

Enquiries invited. .- ,
ORIGIN OF THE BOERS.
It is extremely interesting, at the present mo-.
ment (says Mr. Ganthony in the Sketch), to inquire
as to who and what the Boers really are, and
whence comes this heroic and stubborn defence of
their rights which has exalted these South Afri-
can agriculturists in the eyes of the world.
After the revocation of the Edict of Nantes by
Louis XIV., numbers of Huguenots in 1688 left
France, and settled in Cape Colony under the
Dutch, who then had possession of it, which Gov-
ernment at that time denied the very privileges to
the Huguenots that their descendants and those
of the Dutch have until recently denied the Johan.
nesburgers, which has led to this unfortunate re-
volt against the Government of the Transvaal, as
in the 18th century it le l to the French exodus
from Cape Colony.
Two centuries ago. when the Hlugu-nots in
Cape Colony presented a petition to the Governor
for electoral rights, Van der Stell was enraged,
and dismissed them with a severe reprimand, to
restrain their French impertinences," which had a
parallel in Pretoria lately, when some reasonable
appeal for representation by the Uitlanders was
"'received with jeers" by the members of the
In 1709 the use of French in addressing the
Government on official matters was publicly for-
bidden. In 1724 the Church Service in French
was permitted for the last time, and seventy years
after the arrival of the Huguenots in South Africa
their children cea-ed to speak French entirely.
When the settlers could no longer endure the
tyranny of the Dutch, they trekked," or track-
ed, into the interior, and it is, therefore, quite as
likely that the Dutch-speaking Frenchbmen are
more entitled to be called the owners of the Trans-
vaal than the Dutch themselves--that is, if we
consider, as civilized nations do, that the original
native has no territorial rights whatsoever.
If the original Huguenots have been deprived of
their language, they have not been deprived of
their names, and those we find all through South
Africa: Du Plessis, Malherbe, Rosseau, Fouch6,
De Villiers, Du Toit, Malan, M-Irais Jourdan,
Mesnard, Du Pr6, Notiar, Le Febre, Cordier, RIe-
tief, Le Roux, T'heron, Hugo, Le Grange, aun
dozens of others.
What are the namr s they gave to the homes they
established if not French-Norm ndy, Le Parais,
Lamoote, Rhone, Champagne, Languedoc, &%. ?
The name of the Commander-,General, Joubsrt, is
French, and he is probably als > a descendant of
one of those, who, in 1688, exiled themselves from
France for the sake of their religious liberty.
The names of the Boers, de Beer (not Van Beer),
Du Toitspan, whose farms were despoiled when
diamonds were found in Kimberley, are obviously
of French origin, so that it would appear that the
President of the French Republic has more reason
for offering sympathy than the German Em-
SENATORS ACT IN CUBA'S
WASHINGTON, Feb. 2.--The cause of the
Cubans who are struggling to throw off the
yoke of the mother country occupied the entire
attention of the Senate to-day from the time it
met at noon until late in the afternoon, when
the Senators declared in no unmistakable terms
in behalf of free Cuba.
By a vote of 64 to 6 these resolutions were
"Resolved, by the Senate, the House of Re-
presentatives concurring, that in the opinion
of Congress a condition of public war exists
between the government of Spain and the gov-
ernment proclaimed and for some time mainii

and that the Uuited States of America should

ENGLAND'S LO fAL
LONDON, Feb. 28.--In the House of Com-
mons to-day Joseph Chamberlain, Secretary of
State for the Colonies, replying to a question
of Mr. John W. Laurie, conservative and un-
ionist member for the Pembroke and Haver.
ford-West district, upon the subject, stated that
the government had received copies of resol-
utions adopted by the Australian colonies ex-
pressing their loyalty to the Crown, and de-
claring that tbey were unswervingly deter-
mined to make every saoritico for the perpet-
uation of their conne-ctina with the British
Empire. The resolution of the Canadian gov-
ernment, Mr. Chamberlain said, had not yet
arrived, but when it did it would be laid before
Mr. William Johnston, Protestant conserva-
tive member for the south division of Belfast,
asked if any recognition could be taken of the
fact that when the resolution was pa :se'l in the
Canadian Parliament the entire assembly arose
to their feet and sang God Save the Queen."
This question was received with cheers.
Mr. J. G. MacNeill, nationalist member for
South Donegal, turning to Mr. Chamberlain,
asked, Isn't it a fact that these colonies
have the management of their own affailz,?
Mr. MacNeill's query was greeted with : pro-
longed cheers from the nationalist benches,
but no answer Was giv e to it by Mr. Cham.
DUNRAVEN OUT OF THE
NEW YORK, Feb 28--" The Earl of Dunra-
ven, an honorary member of the club, has pub-
licly charged foul play on the part of the Da-
fender in the recent races for the America's
Cup, of such a nature as necessarily to impli-
cate the managing owners of the vessAl.
"The charge has been investigated by a com-
mission of the highest character, which has
proceeded judicially and before which Lord
Dunraven has appeared and given his own and
other testimony, and has been heard in person
and by counsel. The commission has unani-
mously decided that the charge was false;
that it was not merely unproved, but was
affirmatively disproved by competent and un-
coitradicted evidence, leaving no possibility of
The commission has also found that the
facts upon which Lord Dunraven acted, ac-
cording to his own statement, furnished no
justification for making such a charge.
We deem it to be among the unquestioned
rules which regulate the intercourse of gen-
tlemen that when one finds that he has been
led by mistake to cast unjust imputations
upon the character of another he should
promptly make such reparation as remains
in his power, by acknowledging his error,
withdrawing the imputations and expressing
his regret. Such reparation to Mr. Iselin
and his associates the Earl of Dunraven, after
full opportunity, has failed to make.
"It further appears from the evidence, in
eluding Lord Dunraven's own admissions, that
at the time of the cup races he intentionally
refrained from making the charge formally,
or making any protest, as required by the rules
because it was impossible for him to verify the
charge, and he was unwilling to take the re-
sponsibility of maintaining it.
"It is not open to discussion that when gen-
tlemen are engaged in any sports and one sus-
pects another of foul play he is bound to make
the charge then and in such form and manner
as to assume full responsibility therefore or
thereafter to remain silent.
It further appears that in print and in pub-
lic speech Lord Dunraven has sought to justify
the making of the charge by numerous mis-
representations of fact. He has been forced
himself to admit the untruth of most of these,
yet he stubbornly refuses.i to retract the injuri-
ous inferences drawn for them.
The representatives of this club engaged in
the international yacht races with Lord Dan-
raven as the representative of English yachts-
men upon the footing of mutual confidence
and honohr. He has requited their courtesy
and confidence by distrust, suspicion, unfound-
ed imputations of fraud and a refusal of repar-
Lord Dunraven by his course has forfeited
the high esteem which led to his election as an
honorary member of this club ; therefore
Resolved, That the privileges of honorary
membership heretofore extended to the Earl
of Dunraven are hereby withdrawn, and that
his name be removed from the list of honorary
members of the club."
When the applause had subsided Mr. Lloyd
Phoenix, with a few prefatory remarks, sec-
onded the resolution, whereupon there was
another outburst of applause. The vote was
then taken, the result being thirty-nine in fa-
vour of the resolution and one against it, the
latter being cast by Mr. Chester Munroe. -Up-
on the announcement of the vote there was
more applause, which was continued for some
minutes. The meeting then adjourned. It
had been in session just twenty-six minutes,

HANDLING A STEAMER IN HEAVY
As March is so stormy on the ocean, a discus.
sion which has been going on in nautical journals
as to the best method of handling a steamship in
heavy weather at sea is timely. The London Nau-
tical Magazine for February mentions excellent
authorities who assert as the result of experience
that a steamer will lie-to easily quarter-on in a
heavy gale" and will do infinitely better and
Stier than bow-on."
It is no doubt true, as the Nautical says, that
it is useless to try and keep a vessel's decks dry
by running before a heavy sea at top speed, be-
eui-e the speed of waves in a heavy gale is very
much greater than that of the average steamer."
A usetui manouvre in such cases, recommended
by Capt Whall (in an article published last June
in the Nautical Magazine), is to ease down, allow-
ing the engines to go dead slow; and the testi-.
mony of another able seaman, who tried this ex-
pedient in a severe storm, confirms the value of the

CHEERS FOR DR. JAMESON.
LONDON, Feb. 25-Dr. Jameson, of Transvaal
raid fame, arrived here this evening, was arraign-.
ed in the Bow Street Police Court, and was r.le'as-
ed on his own recognizance in the sum of 2,000.
Fourteen others who took part in the raid were
arraigned also and were all admitted to bail in
32,000 each, which was furnished by themselves.
It was known that they would be arraigned in the
Bow Street Police Court, and thither proceeded the
Duke of Abercorn and others of the directors of the
British South Africa Company, and a number of
members of the aristocracy. Many of Dr. Jame-
son's troopers, who came to England on the steam-
er Harlech Castle, aiembled in the vicinity of the;
court to greet their old commander.
CHARGE AGAINST THE PRISONERS
The exact charge preferred against the prison-
ers was that "the defendants in the month of
December, 1895, in South Africa, within Her
Mejesty's dominions, without license of Her Ma-
jesty, did unlawfullp prepare a military expedition
to proceed against the dominions of a certain
friendly State, to wit, the South African Republic
contrary to the provisions of the Foreign Enlist-
ment Act of 1870."
"NO GRAVER OFFENSE."
After bare evidence of the arrest of the prison-
ers had been submitted and formal statements had
been made by counsel relative to the conduct of
the case, the sitting magistrate, Sir John Bridge,
No graver offence could be charged against
these men. It is a crime of the highest possible
gravity, and must be so regarded by every person
who considers the risks of performing the offence.
It involves, first, the danger of a battle at the
time, in which nxWny lives may be lost and many
homes desolated, besides the greater danger, the
offence being continued, of producing a state of
war between otAntries at amity with one
After deciding up )a the amount of bail to be
furnished, Sir John Bridge addressed the prisoners,
begging them, for Lheir own sakes and the sake
of the country, to hbsent themselves from any
place where their press ance would arouse public
excitement. He further asked then not to assem-
ble together more th in they were obliged to do,
and to otherwise avoi I anything that might possi-
bly disturb the public peace.
Both requests were remarkable, coming from a
Jugde on the bench to defendants before him, and
showed very decidedly that public opinion is
strongly in favour of the accused, and that fears
are entertained of a public demonstration. The
Judge knew, as Jamesoa and his party must have
known from their reception to day, that they had
but to show themselves in a public place to receive
The magistrate appeared astounded and angry
at the cheering that ge-tu-.1 the prisoners on their
entrance into the court room. WVhen the cheer-
ing was renewed on their departure he sternly
If you wish to bring the name of England
into contempt, that is the way to do it."
The defendants departed in cabs and private
carriages, the crowd roaring itself hoarse as they

MR JgENRY M STANLEY'S VIEWS.
W ^ -r' S E' --- -
In a letter of considerable length quoted in the
European edition of the Herald, Mr Henry M
Stanley has recently discussed the relations be-
tween England and France in the light of the pre-
sent occupation of Egypt.
"If," he says. "England is there alone, it is
because France refused to go with her. She has
put forth all her efforts to establish the country on
a sound basis, and has done so. Egypt is no long-
er on the verge of bankruptcy. She is prospering,
her finances are well managed, and her army al-
most suffices for home requirements. But Egyp-
tians regard the Soudan as the French regard
Alsace and Lorraine. If England were to leave
Egypt to-morrow, and the other Powers held aloof,
the Egyptian Ministry would at onceattempt the
reconquest of the Soudan.
"Is it certain," Mr' Stanley asks, "Whether
they would succeed?"j" He further''expresses a
firm conviction that if England left Egypt now
the English people would lose by the depreciation
of their .property there four hundred million
francs. Then there is the question of the Suez
Canal, which another Arabi might block atlany
time, or Egypt might be occupied by a Power hos-
tile to England. England, therefore, remains in
Egypt, not from enmity to France or from distrust
of her, but simply because such vast interests can-
not be given over to an unknown future."
In conclusion, Mr Stanley says :-b" For us Eng-
lish, the occupation of Egypt is but temporary.
We have but one object, and we have not ceased
to assert that it is in no respect hostile to France.
It should not be beyond human intelligence to
discover a means of perpetuating the prosperity of
Egypt. When that is done, England can with-
draw with glory and with full confidence."
PRINCE BISMARCK ON THE NEGRO.
LONDON, Feb 27-The Daily News will to-mor-
row publish a despatch from Berlin saying that
Prince 'Bismarck, conversing on colonial matters
recently with visitors at Friedricharuh, reaffirmed
his opinion that the trader should lead the way
and the State follow. It was useless, he said, to
transplant the Prussian bureaucratic system to
Africa. He rewarded that slavery, the natural
outgrowth of circumstances, should not be uncon-
ditionally abolished, but he strongly denounced
cruelty to the blacks.
The Prince declared that he did not believe in
the equality of the white and black races, but sail
the superiority of the whites would be perveted if
used in a manner that was opposed to humanity
and practical utility. Even in the system of train-
ing horses and dogs. blows were antiquated. A
touching proof of the negro's good nature and
fidelity was given by the fact that five whites were
often, on dangerous journeys in the interior of
Africa, aoocompani3d by thousands of blacks.
CANADA TO BUY ARMS.
OTTAWA, Oat, Feb 16-Finance Miniiter Foster
will ask Parliament to appropriate $3,000,000 for
the purpose of increasing the equipment of the
maliia and strengthening the defences of Canada.
The sum would involve too heavy a tax upon
the ordinary revenue, so it is proposed to charge
the whole expenditure to capital account. The
plan is to purchase 40,000 rifles and heavy field
guns. None of the money will be expended on
This was the scheme approved by the British
War Offtie, it being considered sufficient for the
Dominion to provide for hasty defence of the most
vulnerable points along the line of transportation in
order to repel possible invasion until such time as
aid could be sent out from England.
MR GLADSTONE AND FR NGOE.
PARIS, lFeb 17-Me Gladstone hai written a let-
ter to the Figaro in which he recalls the circum-
stance that forty years ago he declared in the
House of Commons that France and Eagland don.
templated relations beyond those of ordinary
friendship, and that their cordial union assured
the peace of Europe. He has never altered the
opinion he then expressed, he writes, bat his re-
tirement from public life prevents his farther
declaring England's policy.
The news that Mrs Hetty Green has contracted
the habit of dressing well has had a marked effect
upon her mail. She is in receipt of circulars from
dress-makers, milliners, shoe merchants and other
tradesmen who had long ago reached the conclu-
sion that the richest woman in America was not a
target for their shafts. It is said that even Lon-
I don and Paris have already heard of Mrs Green's
change of habits.
