New York City, ,Thursday,
May 7th, 1903.
Commandant Epte Rolf de Wall, nephew of
Oom Paul, President of the former South African
Republic, whose private secretary he says lie was,
and also a nephew of Gen. Joubert, the Boer hero
of two wars with England, is in Savannah, Ga.,
arranging for passage to Rotterdam, whence ihe
will go to Brussels on important business. The
Boer has been in this country some time, having
reached Pensacola, Fla., from Kingston, Jamaica,
where he was taken to swear allegiance to the
British government, which he refused to do, an
act that caused him to be kept under arrest for
two weeks on the charge of lese majest?. The
commandant was captured by Gen. Maxwell at
the Vail River fight, Jan. 28th, 1902. Had he
not been wounded in that battle he would have
been able to escape, he says. After being captured
he was sent with other prisoners to the detention
camp in the Bermudas, and thence, after the close
of the war to Kingston, where he was requested
to take the oath of allegiance. Upon his refusal
to do so he was locked up until some of the Con-
suls on the island, he says, expressed the view
that his detention was unlawful, in that, not be-
ing a British subject originally, he could not be
made one against his will. Despite the fact that
the war has long since been over, Commandant
Wall is as bitter against the English as he was at
the beginning of the conflict, possibly more so,
for then he was a man of wealth and position ;
now he has nothing. The war cost him, he says,
$750,000. He does not consider himself hopeless,
however, nor does he think the cause of his coun-
try lost forever.
The $25,000,000 that was in Johannesburg, the
disappearance of which so puzzled the English, is
in Brussels, he says, and the cannon that were
used by the Boers, but which disappeared before
the final surrender of the Boers to the English
forces, are also in safety, buried where they can
easily be found by the Boer patriots and where
they can be used to best effect if wanted. Let
England but get into serious trouble with Russia,
as is now threatened by the action of the latter
country in regard to the evacuation of Manchuria,
says the commandant, and again the Boer forces
may gather, the cannon be unearthed, and another
bitter and hard fought war be waged for father-
land and freedom. Commandant De Wall says
he will go to Holland first in order to see after
his sister, the wife of Commandant Kranz, whose
troubles caused her to loose her reason, and who
is now the inmate of an asylum in Wilbelmina's
realm. Then he will go to Brussels to confer with
the former of the Transvaal government in regard
to certain papers about which information that he
alone can supply is needed, and to which also his
signature is wanted. He also expects materially
to better his fortunes on this trip, as, he claims,
he is entitled to part of the fortune left by Gen.
Joubert, the whole of which is now in possession
of Oom Paul. As to his plans for the future lihe
is uncertain, but thinks he may interest himself
in the immigration business, and expects to bring
German agriculturists to the United States, es-
pecially to the South. He may also bring some
of the Boer sympathizers here, among them 1,500
of the former residents of Natal Colony who were
exiled because of their sympathy with the Boer
B. J. Viljoen, who was assistant commandant
general of the Burgher forces in the Transvaal,
and who the fore part of the year offered his ser-
vices to the British Government to fight in Soma-
lilaud, is in New York and has written a letter to
the New York Herald in which he says :
Letters and friends arriving from South Af-
rica relate the one sad and disheartening tale of
prevailing antagonism, strife and bitterness.
Such were the conditions when I left its shores
seven months ago, and it almost drives one to
despair to find after a year of peace that so little
has been attained toward conciliation and assimi-
lation of the two dominant races in South Africa.
Has England redeemed her promise given at
Vereeniging? Has a policy of forgiveness and
conciliation been pursued ? Was a general am-
nesty proclaimed and an attempt made to oblite-
rate the bitter memories of the war ?
For the sake of South Africa, the once prospe-
rous and promising continent in the southern
hemisphere, the progress of which in the exten-
sion of commerce and civilization has been so de-
trimentally retarded by the late war, and the pop-
ulation of which is crippled by poverty and suffer-
ing under the hard hand of the dreadful war, and
as a son of South Africa I appeal to the British
nation, the imperial government and press for a
policy of clemency and forbearance.
One of the prime causes keeping alive the
sparks of warfare and race hatred is the unfulfill-
ed promise on the part of the British government
to proclaim a general amnesty. Hundreds of our
countrymen who joined the Boer ranks when
Cape Colony was invaded are this day yet lan-
guishing in English prisons all over the world,
martyrs to a sentiment of loyalty to their race,
while those who are the cause of the rebellion are
It should not be forgotten that they had

strong provocation to rise, in the injudicious mea-
sures taken by the military authorities to prevent
communication between the colonial Afrikanders
and their kinsmen beyond the Orange River.
Military law is always obnoxious, and in time of
war its heavy, stern hand is cruel and relentless,
the loyal suffering with the disloyal.
I am acquainted with instances in which
many Cape Colony Afrikander were driven into
the ranks of the invading republicans by persecu-
tion and arbitrary treatment of the military au-
thorities in their district. Is it just then that
such men should be harshly treated, while the in-
vaders who brought the trouble on them, laid
down their arms under the distinct promise by
Lords Kitchener and Milner that an armistice
would be forthwith granted ?
When are the promises of amnesty to bear
fruit? British statesmen talk of conciliation and
the press echoes their benevolent sentiments, but
the first step toward harmony and union is not
taken. If the British government desires the
good will and hopes for the fidelity of the Afri-
kanders who were lately in arms against England,
it will proclaim a general amnesty and open the
prison doors to those of our kinsmen for whose
crime we of the late republic are responsible, and
whose suffering in chains and in exile rests heavi-
ly on our shoulders and keeps the bitter memo-
ries.of a wrongful war fresh in the minds and
.hearts of those who fought it out to the bitter
Let England follow the example of the United
States government when the Confederates laid
down their arms at the close of the civil war.
Call it magnanimity, statesmanship or what
you will, and I feel sure that the Boers of South
Africa who have accepted the inevitable will loy-
ally join their countrymen of English blood in
making South Africa the greatest federation of
the British Empire.
I am no longer harbouring feelings of hostil-
ity toward the English nation, accepting as I do
the pledge to be faithful to the peace treaty signed
at Vereeniging. The sword has been turned into
the ploughshare.
My heart bleeds for men of my race who are
deprived of their liberty, broken in health and
separated from their wives. and children-for
what ? For taking up arms to join their kins-
men and thus entering the ranks of the wrong
side of a geographical boundary.
We who fought for independence and what we
thought was right and just are free to return and
resettle, while those who fought for a sentiment
are pining away in prisons.
I make this appeal to the humanity and com-
mon sense of the conquerors, with whom our for-
tunes are henceforth to be cast for weal or woe.
I am sir, yours, B. J. VILJOEN,
Assistant Commandant General Burgher Forces,
New York, May 1, 1903.
The dream of a colonial preferential tariff ar-
rangement with England with which the Cana-
dian voters have been entertained for the past six
years has vanished. By abolishing the import
duty on breadstuffs the English government has
extricated itself from a most embarrassing position
in relation to the colonies, but at the same time
has put a damper upon the Canadian hope of en-
larging her English trade at the expense of the
United States.
The Canadian budget speech was delivered in
the House of Commons in Ottawa on the after-
noon of April 16th. It was a declaration of com-
mercial independence for Canada. England was
warned that her colony had reached the limit in
bestowing favours on the mother country with-
out more tangible returns. It was intimated to
the United States that while Canada would be
patient it was high time something was doing in
the reciprocity line. Commercial war was de-
clared against Germany because of five years of
fruitless negotiations, and German goods now en-
tering Canada pay surcharge amounting to an ad-
ditional one-third of the regular tariff
schedule. As if in reply to the plain
talk of its wheat-producing colony, Canada,
the English budget speech was delivered
on April 23rd, one week after the Canadian pro-
clamation, and not only was no attention paid to
the warning issued by Canada, but the only ex-
isting ground for reciprocal or preferential favours
was swept away by the abolition of the grain tax.
In England this move is regarded as an effort to
appeal to the great mass of consumers by remov-
ing- all taxe- upon bread, a form of revenue col-
lection which has always been most obnoxious to
the British public. It cannot be said, however,
that England was in such financial position as to
warrant a reduction of revenue, and this removal
of the grain tax is looked upon in Canada as a
drastic but shrewd move on the part of the Bal-
four government to extricate itself from an ex-
tremely dangerous position in the matter of the
commercial relations of the producing colonies to
the mother country. The import duty on grain,
which has been maintained by England for a year
past, amounted to about 6 cents per bushel on
wheat, or practically the equivalent of the cost of
transportation from the wheatfields of the North-
west to the London market. For six years Can-
ada has given England the advantage in her home
markets by a preferential tariff on English-made
goods now amounting to a third of the import
duties. This preferential was designed to empha-
size the desire of the Canadian people for an inter-
colonial commercial union with England, and to

place Canada in the position of being a large con-
tributor to the piosyerity of English merchant
and manufacturers. England 'is notoriously with-
out breadstuff resources under her own flag,
and is almost entirely dependent upon for-
eigners for the food consUnred by her own
people at home. Canada, w ith its pro-
mise of becoming a great bread-producing
country, and with its friendly attitude to English
manufactures, fully proved by legislative action,
presented herslIf as the granary of England, the
only favour asked being that the mother country,
while continuing to collect thb grain tax from the
United States, Russia and Argentina, should re-
mit this import duty on Canadian proQucts, and
thus give a loyal colony a preference in the home
market. and a bonus upon the' development of new
food-producing area. Up t the day of the Eng-
lish budget speech the Libera leaders in Canada
have clung to the hope that this would be accom-
plished, and they have made this hope the key
note of their appeals to voters. The Canadian
law which gave the preferential advantage to Eng-
land is known as the Fielding tariff. Mr' Field-
ing is still the minister of finance of the Domin-
ion. Having originated this policy of favouring
British products, and firmly believing that the
preference thus given was worthy of some return
from the favoured country, it is significant to find
in his budget speech of last 7,onth a broad inti-
mation to England that uiulei. something is forth-
coming in the near future Canadian resentment
will find expression in a revision of the tariff laws.
The warning was conveyed byIthe minister in the
following language: If, after further considera-
tion, they (the English government) come to the
conclusion that our request is not a reasonable
one ; if, owing to their adherence to certain views
they cannot grant us the preference, we shall be
pleased to take our own course. Whether in such
a case it would be wise in the interests of Canada
to modify or change the preferential tariff
would be a question to be considered. But
if, putting aside other considerations, the Brit-
ish government and people do not show any
appreciation of the value of the preference, then,
so far as the British government and the British
people are concerned, they canpot complain if we
should see fit to modify or change their preferen-
tial tariff."
The above was written and ~ e, to the Cana-
dian people when the hope still existed that an
arrangement could be made with England based
upon a remission of the grain tax for Canadian
products. Had the Canadian government been
quite open to announce its policy after the English
budget announcement, there is little doubt that
Mr. Fielding would have made his warning more
emphatic, for as shown by the words of Sir Wil-
fred Laurier the Dominion still hoped up to the
last moment that England would give them recog-
nition. The English government has taken its
present attitude notw ithmtanldini the offer of the
Caoaiadih govermaim.-t v..'. ,t, u:-nt the colo-
nial conference to still further increase the prefer-
ential advantages to English goods in Canadian
markets if England would give something in re-
turn. While evading the tariff question England
called upon Canada for military and na-,al sup-
port, and as an offset to all tariff concessions and
all support given the British empire set forth the
protection of the British flag to Canadian territory
and Canadian commerce through the English con-
sular service the world about. If the utterances
of the minister of finance are anything more than
a bluff at the home government it now rests with
Canada to take steps to show her dissatisfaction at
her treatment by England, and if the Liberal party
carries out the policy announced in the budget
speech, it means that England will in the future
be treated the same as other countries at the Cana-
dian custom houses. The feeling in Canada to-
ward England among the masses of the people is
rather difficult to analyze. Among the politicians
it is considered the proper thing to talk in public
on a closer commercial union with En'glanid, and
for protection for Canadians a.,i t the peoples of
all other countries. This talk, however, must be
taken with some allowance. The French-Canadi-
ans constitute at least one-third of the population
of Canada and they are bound to England by no
special ties of sentiment. The new emigration
coming into western Canada has no preferences
except perhaps among people from the United
States, all of whom look forward to the day when
there will be no boundary between Canada and
the country to the South. Canada needs no pro-
tection by England against any country in the
world. The United States will never go to war
against Canada, neither will the United States
ever allow a foreign country to obtain a foothold
upon Canadian soil. Here the Monroe Doctrine
would come into active use, far, as Senator Hoar
remarked many years ago, The United States
reserves to itself the exclusive privilege of licking
Canada." Still, there is a strong tie between
Canada and England, and there is not so much
talk of annexation to the United States as there
was some years ago. In fact, the subject is now
very rarely discussed especially since the failure of
the negotiations for reciprocity conventions be-
tween the two countries. Quite a numberof Cana-
dians, mostly in the Conservative party, favour a
free trade alliance with Great Britain and a high
tariff wall against all other countries. Into this situ-
ation, however, enter the French Canadians and the
new population of the west. Their best market in
which to buy or sell is the United States and the
Canadian Wheat farmers would not stand any in-
crease of tariff which would increase the price of
the commodities they buy. It is a notorious fact
that while the scale of wages, salaries and returns
upon invested money are lower in Canada than
they are in the United States, yet the prices of
nearly all the necessities of life are higher. An
investigation was recently made into the compara-
tive cost of articles usually purchased by a farmer
in the United States and in Canada. It was
found that over 180 of the articles in common use
in an average household and upon on an average
farm can be bought in the United States cheaper
and of better quality than they can be bought in
Canada. These are facts which hinder any move-
ment toward a higher tariff wall to be- erected by
Canada against the United States. There is un-
questionable a drift in Canada, as in many other
countries, toward a maximum and minimum

tariff law, the margin not to be absolutely hori-
zontal, but to vary with the character of the
article in question and the local situation in re-
gard to its manufacture or production. If such a
law as this were enacted the English people would
probably lose some of their present preference in
Canadian markets, though they would still receive
an advantage through being charged the minimum
import duty. To the other countries Canada
would say :-" We are now prepared to discrim-
ate between our friends and our enemies. You
can take your choice. Give us something in re-
turn and we will asses you our minimum tax. If
you will give us nothing in return your exports
must pay our maximum charges for imports into
this country."
There will be no further tariff legislation at this
session of the Canadian parliament, but it is very

likely the matter will receive a great deal of atten-
tion another year and that the budget speech of '04
will contain important modifications of the pres-
ent fiscal policy of the Dominion. Such charges
as are then made will be designed to impose as
much discrimination against the United States as
if compatible with the welfare of the Canadian
people, provided all hope of reciprocity has been

friendly fisherman of Poldhu directed us to the
battery ; whither we proceeded and found the
great inventor in the act of transmitting an ether-
gram message of birthday congratulations from
the editor of the Morning Advertiser to the editor
of the New York Sun.
While waiting for the reply our host invited us
to a hurried lunch, consisting of Irish stew and
Polena, washed down with a mixture invented by
Mr. Marconi, of Anti Spumante and John Jame-
son, known as the Pol Dew. For ourselves he
opened a bottle of wireless champagne.
Mr. Marconi, being of mixed Irish and Italian
parentage, always carries a shillelagh and an ac-
cordion, invariably takes ice-cream with his pota-
toes, and talks in a mixture of the choicest Tus-
can and Rathfarnham dialects.
Mr. Marconi is a spare, closely-knit, young
man-we had almost said wirey, but he is, of
course, anything but that.
We congratulated our host on his rapprochment
with the Post Office.

/ In Memoriam.

It is with the very deepest regret that we an-
nounce to-day the death at Mount Kisco, N. Y.,
U. S. A., on Saturday last, of Mrs. Llewellyn
Jones, wife of the Bishop of Newfoundland and
After her arrvial in Bermuda last November
she seemed to her friends here in excellent health ;
but sufferings, long borne in silence, were being
endured and at last bad to be made known, with
the result that her removal to New York for spe-
cial treatment was pronounced imperative. The
news at first seemed hopeful and spoke of some
improvement; but the relief was alas only tem-
porary and after several weeks of gradual failing
she was taken to her rest on Saturday last, the
ninth of May.
Mrs. Llewellyn Jones (who was the daughter
ifthe late Hon. Sir Adams G. Archibald, K.C.
M.G., Lie-ut.-Governor of Nova Scotia) has, since
her ina;ainge in November, 1881, exerted a great
influence for good both in Newfoundland and
Bermuda. Possessed of rare social and intellec-
tual gifts, of queenly presence, and of the kind-
liest of hearts, she naturally won admiration and
affection wherever she became known, and her
sudden serious illness and early death have caus-
ed much real sorrow in both sections of His Lord-
ship's Diocese.
Here in Bermuda it is almost impossible for
those Who do not know Newfoundland intimately
to appreciate the possible influence of a Bishop's
wife in that larger sphere of His Lordship's work.
From fifty to sixty clergy are at work there in as
many outports, and it is for them and their wives
to tell how faithful, generous, and true was the
friend they now have lost. Sadly will they miss
the constant proofs that came to them that in
their lonely missions they were not forgotten, and
greatly too will they miss, whenever they go to
the capital, her gracious welcome and genial hos-
pitality. In Newfoundland, moreover, there exist
many Church institutions for the spiritual and
social benefit of the large population, and these
were either under her patronage or claimed her as

their President. The loss to these societies-
notably the Girls' Friendly Society-of her guid-
ing hand and wise counsels seems, as we think of
it, absolutely irreparable.
* Here it has been our misfortune to only have
her with us one winter in every two years. Her
personal friends were nevertheless very numerous
and most devoted, and the grief that is being felt
this moment is intense and very widespread.
Never, in Bermuda, can be forgotten the active
interest that she shewed this winter in all things
that -made for the good of the place, for it is
known that that interest meant self forgetfulness
to the point of acute suffering and serious risk to
her already failing health.
We think sadly of our Bishop in his great afflic-
tion. In our helplessness to succour, yet in most
real sympathy, we must earnestly pray that Di-
vine comfort and strength may be given to him
and his family in this the heaviest of an overflow-
ing share of sorrows.

An Oflicei's Lite in Bermuda, A.D.

We have heard much of Bermuda in the last
six months, the various articles of Mr. Bigelow,
Mr. Alison and Miss Elwes, and later through the
unhappy accident to the 'Aurania'. But all those
distinguished people having discoursed chiefly on
one theme :-the Boer prisoners-I feel attention
should be called to an equally interesting though
more commonplace subject-namely, the British
officer and his life in the Land of Lilies.
To endorse what has already been written, the
place is garrisoned by 3 companies of Artillery,
some Engineers, 3 Line Regiments and details of
other useful if less ornamented branches of the
The Navy contributes many shining lights in
both figurative and literal sense, it being the
winter headquarters of the North American
From December to May our American cousins
assist in lightening the officers common round and
daily task by providing for his leisure hours all
the amusements a vivacious and naively flirtatious
mind can suggest.
They are rewarded by grateful devotion for the
season and occasionally the offer of the warrior's
hand and heart. Should he be endowed with this
worlds goods the offer is almost invariably accept-
ed, with an ignorance of the life to which the fair
one pledges herself surprising in a daughter of
such a usually far-seeing nation. Before arrival,
however, a glamour is thrown on possible suitors
by the Hotel Proprietors, who advertise in the
American papers that all officers of the Garrison
attending their tri-weekly dances do so in'uni-
form. This may partly account for these surpris-
ingly fatal results.
By June, however, the hotels-which in an
English colony are all conducted entirely on the
principles of third-rate American houses, from the
ubiquitos iced-water and perplexing multiplicity
of diminutive dishes to the proprietor's mental
'* charge sheet" in dollars-are closed, the shops
in the centre of fashionable life in Hamilton, in
curl papers, their stock reduced till-should you
have resembled the foolish ones of scriptural lore
and neglected to provide for the immediate future
-you cannot find beneath the encircling folds of
brown holland even, a spool of thread or half a
dozen buttons of any given size to sew on there-
The pampered British officer-whose money
by the way supports all things in the land-may
in the summer exist in the uncanny heat as best
he may (the thermometer seldom rises beyond 900
in the shade, still human beings both coloured
and white are day and night in a melting con-
dition) bathing picnics, sailing in small boats, golf
or a game of that prehistoric relic lawn tennis
being all the country provides in the shape of
amusement. Not infrequently there is too little
breeze for sailing and it is too hot for either golf or
tennis. There remains for the afternoon hours the
officer's bed whereon he makes a classical effect
under the draperies of a mosquito net and snatches
what sleep he may, Chanticleer, in common
with his South African brethren, making it some-
what a luxury during the orthodox hours.
For the married-that large and undesirable
class in the Army--things are more complicated.
Outside Hamilton, that is on the various islands
like St. Georges, Boaz, Ireland, it is often im-
possible to obtain a roof large enough to cover the
heads of quite a small family. In some cases a
tent pitched on the front lawn has had to be
resorted to in order to shelter the unhappy ones
who were not, I suppose, successful. in the first
rush for places in the house. It is a fact landlords
suggest this remedy quite seriously to possible
tenants when they desparingly murmur-" but
we could never get in here." Rents are high and
the tenant must make at his own expense the
alterations necessary to give even the conveniences
required in England 100 years ago. Government
provides some quarters but there are not nearly
Servants, coloured of course, arescarce and poss-
essed of but sketchy ideas on law and order.
Should the fancy seize them for a lengthened
holiday they will smilingly leave your dwelling
and you only discover the fact when you chance
to 'command their presence. If subsequently in-
terviewed and remonstrated with they suggest a
return in say three weeks time. This peculiarity
is to be accounted for by Poverty in the Islands
being unknown. There are no beggars. Any
male member of the family can earn 4/- per diem
as a minimum wage, whenever he chooses. So
much for the majority of servants-a few there are
really excellent in all respects.
I notice everyone who has been here, speaking
retrospectively, eulogises the climate and refrains
from all mention of disagreeables in this matter.
I wonder why ; perhaps it is because Bermuda is
so very small on the principle of being strong and
merciful. But there is no gainsaying the fact, the
storms of wind and rain. in winter are simply
awful and I have known one gale blow for ten
consecutive days and nights. Scientists may say
this is a physical impossibility, but so it appeared
to the ordinary human being. April and May
are, though, as climatically perfect as two self-
respecting months on this planet may be.
Should the unfortunate married officer ; wife or
children be stricken with illness Government has
provided him (I speak not of one Island) with a
civil medical officer of tender years and such ex-
perience as he may glean from the cases attended
since his appointment. Walking the hospitals"
was not in his instance considered a necessary
qualification for his appointment. The results of
his ministrations are in many cases better imagin-
ed than described. Excellent medical aid can ou
payment be obtained in Hamilton, but much may
happen in a hot climate during the hours which

must elapse before such advice can be secured. If
the illness be dysentary, enteric, typhoid and a
desire for an analysis of milk or water supply is
expressed (by the suffering family bien entendu)
it is met with the assurance such a thing is im-
possible as neither Army, Navy, nor the colonial
Government is provided with the necessary apparatus
in Bermuda So everyone goes on taking the
same risks and trusting to a kind fate tojturn all
microbes from his cup.
Labour of all sorts is extremely scarce, chiefly
on account of the national disinclination for work.
Fruit, (which mostly comes from the West Indies)
is plentiful for nearly a week after the ships arrive,
then comes a famine-I speak of the summer
months. During the winter or American season
the supply is more abundant, as nothing must be
allowed to, interfere with the comfort of these
birds of passage. (I should be glad if I might
again remind my readers Bermuda is a British
colony !)
The Bermudian is not by nature an energetic
person nor does he evince that eagerness for pro-
gress one might expect from his constant inter-
course with and admiration of America. There-
fore he does not grow vegetables in any quantity,
to do which imported labour might fairly easily
and at reasonable wage be obtained, did not the
Bermuda Government in imitation of the Ameri-
can heavily tax it.
Concerning water-supply we are totally depend-
ent on what favour we are in with Jupiter Pluvius.
Some months superabundance reaches us through
the medium of torrential showers. In others we
may sink to family allowance. The rain is collect-
ed-often very imperfectly- from the roofs by
gulitters into tanks, a somewhat primitive method
and one not calculated to increase the English-
man's peace of mind. These tanks in their turn
become a fruitful source of annoyance. They are

generally cleoe lo the house and materially assist
in bringing manLy legions of mosquitos into exist-
ence for the wotry of alien inmates.
Meat is 1/- pet lb., Milk 6d. a quart, eggs from
1/6 to 2/6 a dozer- Fresh butter made locally 1/6
to'2/6 per lb. :and often unobtainable at that ;
Cream 5/- a qiart aud all other necessaries in pro-
portion. "These pi ice-s affect both the unmarried and
married officer, in the ca-e of the former it being
impossible to reduce his messing" to the sum
which obtains npw in most places.
Trains are a, vnet unknown. Communication
with any mainland only possible fortnightly ex-
cept during the, months from January to May,
when for American convenience the ships ply
more frolquently in~ those months, climatically
healthy ones, it ik not, necessary for the officer or
his family to reach cooler climes.
No carriage goes out for hire even to cross the;

allows 2/6 a day extra pay only, an appointment
to these Islands cannot be considered an altogether
profitable affair. -'

Bermuda 16th Annual Rifln Meeting.
For The Royal Gazette.
Several days were unfortunately marred by wet
weather during the week given over to the Annu-
al Bermuda Rifle Meeting, which took place as
usual at Warwick, and a badly-worded programme
was the cause of few people becoming aware on
Saturday, May 2nd, that one of the most interest-
ing events of the year was to take place, viz :-
the marching and shooting competition open to
teams from all H. M. ships, regiments, etc.
Starting from Hamilton Town Hall, the distance
to Warwich Cam-p could not be estimated under
seven miles, and this was covered by both the
Warwick and Worcester regimental teams, the
only two entered, in splendid time, the men also
arriving in good condition. When it came to
sh.ootin-., however, the Warwick team simply
romped away from the other, which fell badly to
From Monday to Thursday inclusive good pro-
gress was made in the programme, splendid shoot-
ing being witnessed in many events, with the re-
sult that when His Excellency, the G. 0. C., ar-
rived on the ground about 2.15 p.m. ou Friday,
the 8th inst. things had been so well managed,
they were sufficiently up to time to leave only two
contests for decision.
The first and most important was that for the
Governor's Cup, given for the best shot at the
Meeting. Q. M. S. Bird, Royal Waiwickshire
Regt., who came up with a lead of eight points in
hand to the 800 yds. range, easily and in brill-
iant style won this, making a highest possible,
namely ten bulls in succession, Large and ex-
-cited crowds pressed closely around the competi-
tors, but this in no wise disturbed Bird's serenity
or affected his accuracy of aim.
The sole remaining event, and this of purely so-
cial interest, was the Ladies Rifle Shooting com-
petition, Morris Tube conditions, at 50 yds.
range. In this the shooting was fairly -teadyl,
and Mrs. Purvis with a score of five bulls and a
total of 30 won the coveted first prize, being close-
ly followed by Mrs. Butterfield with a score of
28, which, after a tie with Miss Douglas obtained
for her 2nd prize, Amongst other competitors
were Miss G. Geary, Miss Trimingham, Mrs.
Lennock Godet, Mrs. Molesworth, Miss I Doug-
las and Miss Jones.
After this an adjournment was made to the
Officers' Enclosure for the bestowal by Lady
Geary of the handsome silver trophies, and
money prizes. Some of the most important were
carried off by the following ;
All Comers, 500 yds.-Colour Sergeant Gregg,
Wore. Regt.
Revolver, Officers-Lieut. Barker, Wore. Regt.
Bermuda Championship Cup-4th Wore. Regt.
Vanishing Target-" A" team, H. M. S. Ariadne.
Revolver Team,-Officers-Royal Navy.
Men-H. M. S. Ariadne.
Vice Admiral Sir A. Douglas's Prize-Br. Clar-
ingbold, 66 Coy. R. G. A.
File Competition-lH. M. S. Indefatigable.
At the conclusion of the Prize giving Sir Henry
Geary in a few well-chosen words said he thought
the thanks of all were due to Captain Lawrenson,
Captain Aubrey Smith R. N. and Lieut. Kay for
the highly successful way in. which the meeting
had been conducted. Also to Admiral Sir A.
Douglas for his kindness in giving a prize which
he was quite sure was appreciated by every one.
By the cheerful mien of the men as they stepped.
forward to receive their prizes he was certain they
also were fully alive to the advantages to be de-
rived from the meeting, and to its excellent man-
agement. Three cheers were then heartily given
for His Excellency and Lady Geary and also for
Sir Archibald and Lady Douglas.
The hospitality of both the Army and Navy was
afterwards enjoyed at their respective tea-tents,
and an opportunity was for the first time afforded
to see who was present and for a chat with friends.
Amongst the company I remarked Mrs. Cecil
Tucker, Miss James, Mrs. Browning, Mrs. Aubrey
Smith, Mrs. Edwards, Mrs. Mockler, Mrs. Lean,
Mrs. Roberts, Miss Mattinson, Miss Demmons
and practically all the officers of the Bermuda
At five o'clock the strains of "God save the
King" and the departure of His Excellency and
party brought a highly successful and most en-
joyable meeting to a close.

His Worship gave judgment to-day in the case
of Reginald V. Lovell who was charged with
using abusive and insulting language in a pub-
lic place wherbey a breach of the peace may
have been occasioned. The case had lasted
over a portion of three days, a large num-
ber of witnesses having been examined. Mr.
Spencer Josephs appeared for the defence.
His Worship found the defendant guilty, senten-
ced him to pay-a fine of 24/ and costs, amounting
to 3 19. 0. The costs in the case were unusually

large on account of the number of witnesses who
gave evidence in the case. Under the Summary
Jurisdiction Act, 1902, His Worship allowed wit-
ness to the witness money, the same being
cots in the case.

We supply goods made specially to any style,

We make up sample cases of most goods from

the market for which they are intended, we confi-

Prompt and painstaking attention to the in-

month ago. His Lordship replied that the total

Easter Sunday and Easter Monday in which it is
believed about one hundred Jews lost their lives
and many more were injured.

Lord Cranborne, replying to a question admitted
that communications were passing between the
Foreign Office and Germany regarding thelatter's
imposition of different duties against Canada, but

ties on German imports into the United Kingdom,

saying he could not make any further statement
at present.
London, May 21-The directors of the Bank of
England at their weekly meeting to-day reduced

4/ London, May 21-In a speech at Burnley, Lan-
4/ cashire, Lord Rosebery, referring to Mr. Cham-
berlain's Birmingham speech, expressed his opin-
ion that the Liberal party is indissolubly bound

the whole world.

announces that a court martial has sentenced to
death the instigator of the destruction by dyna-
mite April 30 of the Ottoman Bank at that place.
St. Petersburg, May 19.-Lieut.-Gen. Raaben,
Governor of Kisheneff, Bessarab, where the mas-
sacre of Jews occurred last month, has been dis-
missed by the Czar.
Sofia, May 20.-Large numbers of refugees from
Macedonia fearing massacre, are entering Bulgaria:
especially from the direction of Adrianople. They;
tell terrible stories of Turkish violence wreaked
on Christians. The Bulgarian frontier posts at
Tamruch recently report that Turkish troops were
preparing to occupy strategic points near Dormoa-
chevo and Lillkovo ; this government notified the
Porte that any attempt to cross the frontier
would be repelled by force ; in consequence iof this
it is understood the Turkish forces concentrated
in that vicinity have been withdrawn.
St. Petersburg, May 20-The Chief of police at
.Kischineff has been dismissed for failure to sup-
press the anti-semitic riots The Jewish claims
for damages against Lt.-Gen. lion. Raabso, who
was dismissed from the Governorship on account
of the riots, will be tried by the Senie, and those
damages brought against the other local authori-
ties will be decided by the lower Court.
Berlin, May 20--According to a special des-
patch to the Vossische-Zeitung from Bucharest,
anti-Semitic agitators are to be found evte-y where
in Roumania, and scene- similar to those enacted-
at Kischineff are feared. The Lokal .\nzeiger
publishes similar reports of anti-Jewiht i propagan-
da in Riga Odessa, and in Poland andi Lithunia.'
Every where the Jews are said to lte preparing
for defence.
St. Petersburg, May 18--The greatest anxiety
prevails in administrative circles, owing to the
possibility of serious outbreaks on the occasion
of the approaching bicentenary of this city. The
police have requested the owners of workshops
and factories to refuse a holiday to the employees
during the festivities, but the men will probably
refuse to work. The latter have recently shown
much unruliness. Revolutionist emissaries have
been flooding she workshops with seditious litera-
St. Petersburg, May 20.-A circular issued by
M. Von Plehwe, Minister of the Interior, ascrib4j
the massacres of the Jews at Kishinoff largely V
acts of self defence on the part of the Jews. T lI
Jews are not inclined to depend wholly on tM
police and have armed themselves, in spite of the
circular which forbids this throughout the Jewish
belt. Undoubtedly their action prevented a re-
petition of the massacre at Kiev, Odessa, Minsk
and elsewhere. The Minsk Jews are so alarmed
that the slightest outbreak caused a general clos-
ing and barricading of their shops.
Madrid, May 18.-Some surprise has been
caused here by the announcement that the Minis-
ter of Marine purposes, during the coming session
of the Cortes, to ask that body to sanction the ex-
tensive reorganization of the navy and the im-
provement of the arsenals and dockyards at Fer-
rol, Cadiz and Carthagena, thereby increasing the
annual expenditure from 40,000,000 to 50,000,-
000 in a few years. If these plans are adopted
Spain will have, within ten years, a dozen battle-
ships and a dozen cruisers in addition to torpedo
boat destroyers, etc.
Madrid, May 20.--The Cortes has reassembled.
In the speech from the throne the King expressed
confidence that parliament would do its utmost
to help him at the beginning of his reign to revi-
vify the life of the nation, improve the laws,
strengthen the credit of the country and develop
the national resources and general liberty and
well being of the people.
Pretoria, May 18-At a mass meeting held
here 3- -.- d:, to protest against the introduc-
tion of ('Chiii-: labour in South Africa, great en-
thusiasm was displayed, Mr. Loveday, a former
member of the Volksraed, presided. In an ad-
dress he dilated upon the necessity of forming a
political army to battle with the question, and
fight the formidable Capitalists, who favoured
Chinese labour. Other speakers insisted that
there was an abundance of native labour available,
and the excited audience was told that the inden-
ture forms for importing Chinese, already are in
the hands of the printers. The resolution against
the introduction of Chinese was carried with but'
one dissenting voice.
Johannesburg, May 20-Lord Milner address-
1ing a meeting on the native question, contented
that natives who raised themselves to a civilized
level with whites were entitled to equal privilege.
He -. %lotl;om.-,1, he said, with the feeling in South
Africa against an influx of Asiatics ; but that in-
flux should be resisted on social economic grounds
not on the score of colour.
London, May 19-An official despatch to the -
War Office from Aden, Arabia, under to-day's
date gives details of a desperate encounter which
took place at Burrilli, Somaliland on May 4, be-
tween an Abyssinian force, operating in conjunc-
tion with the British against the Mad Mullah,
and a large force of the latter's dervishes. After
a hand to hand fight, lasting 45 minutes, the Der-
vishes were driven off with the loss of 300 men
killed and two wounded. The Abyssinians had
21 killed and 10 wounded.
London, May 20-The defeat of the Mad Mul-
lah's Dervishes is the first blow struck by the
Abyssinian contingent which is co-operating with
Brig-Genl. Manning's advance. The Abyssinians
number 10,000 ; are mostly armed with modern
weapons and accompanied by some British Officers.
The scene of the Burrilli fight is two miles South-
west of the scene of the disaster to the British
force under Colonel Plunkith, April 17, when the
Colonel, all the British officers, and practically
his entire force of 170 men, were annihilated by
the Dervishes, and is 200 miles from General
Manning's present quarter at Bohotte, Ubertali,
where the Mad Mullah is now reported to be 20
miles from Gerlogubi, where, under the original
plan, the British and Abyssinian columns should
have met.

Manila, May 10-The situation in some of the
districts of Cebu is regarded as serious. It is re-

be taken immediately to supress the disturbances,
which are taking place there.
St John, N. F., May 20-The Colonial legisla-
ture was closed to-day. The Governor, Sir Ca-
vendish Boyle, in the speech from the throne,

branches of the Colony's industry. Sir Robert
Bond, the Premier, is seriously ill, and was un-
able to be present.

correspondent in Managua reports that after seve-
ral hours fighting on the Lake, Wednesday last,
the Revolutionary steamer Victoria was captured
near the Island.of Zapatera, by the Hollenberk
and De Julio, Government stea.ners. This termi-
nates the Revolution in Nicaragua and peace and
order now prevail. The people are rejoicing.
The relations with the new government of Hon-
duras are most cordial. Seventy-five men were on
board the Victoria when it was captured ; they
are now prisoners in Grenada.
Lapaz, Bolivia, May 18.-The Revolution has
been crushed by the government troops and the
populace. The rebels have fled from Oruro.
Panama, May 18-There is no foundation for
the reports that General Rafael Reyes
has assumed the presidency owing to Senor
Marroquin's retirement. The last official cable
from Bogota states plainly that Senor Marroquin
had no intention of resigning. This is confirmed
by private advices.
Paris, May 20.-Mr. Kruger arrived here to-
day from Mentone en route to Holland. He said
he expected to return to France next year. Mr.

Cologne, May 19--A despatch from Fez, Moroc-

ions have been doubled. The road to Tangier is
impracticable of use even for native troops or ca-
Bremen, May 10-The long expected dockyard
trouble broke out this morning, when the Vulcan
works looked out 2,000 employees. At least ten
thousand men will be locked out by the end of
the week, if the negotiations between the men
and the employers for an agreement are not suc-
cessful. The fight is a contest between the
Trades Union backed by Socialists, and the em-
ployers, who are supported by the more conserva-
tive workmen.

A Biological Station at Bermuda.
Harvard University and New York University
unite with the Bermuda Natural History Society
in inviting botanists and zoologists to spend six
weeks in the temporary biological station provid-

The Bermuda Natural History Society has ex-
pressed its intention to do everything in its power
to make the summer's work as profitable and
pleasurable as possible, and to this end has under-
taken to provide, among other things, the neces-
sary facilities for collecting, namely, a steam
launch, thirty to forty feet long with crew ; a sail
boat with fish-well and crew ; three rowing boats,
and a carriage with two horses capable of carrying
ten or twelve persons. The laboratory will be
equipped with all necessary reagents and utensils
except microscopes and dissecting instruments,
which should be brought by each investigator.
There are two possible dates of sailing from
New York ; June 20 and July 4. The laboratory
will be opened for those who sail on June 20 and
will remain open eight weeks, thus providing for
those who cannot sail until July 4.
The well-known richness of the sub-tropical
fauna and flora, the healthfulness and equable
temperature of the islands, and the ease with
which they may be reached combine to make the

Gymkhana at Prospect.
There was a numerous attendance of the mili.
tary element and civil population at Prospect yes-
terday (Friday) afternoon when a programme of
gymkhana sports were brought off under the aus-
pices of Bermuda Paper Chase Club. The events
which numbered half a dozen were characterized
by originality and excited considerable interest,
There was an unconscionable long delay between
the various races, however, which resulted in the
programme being lengthened out until late in the
afternoon. The bucket ball race, in which the
competitor was invited to put a ball into buckets
of water 20 yards apart whilst proceeding at a gal-
lop proved highly diverting. Lt. Hayhurst was the
only competitor who succeeded in placing the ball
into all the buckets. The tandem race was another
amusing event. In this contest the competitor
had to ride one horse and drive another twice
round the course. This feat was one that requir-
ed considerable skill, as the eccentricities some
of the horses displayed were, to say the least, re-
markable. The third item was described as an
elephant race. In this contest the horsemen had to
ride round the course and finally through a huge
paper screen, upon which a very inelegant picture
of an elephant had been painted. There were a
large number of entries in the ladies driving com-
petition and this event occupied a considerable
time. The remaining contests were lemon cutting,
and an orange race, in which the competitors had
to ride to six oranges placed on sticks and bring
back as many as possible.
The following were the results:
