Thoro was n ilinpiilch in tho
Mnnnn'ri Intent dales from lUo
Janeiro, stating thnt tho United
HtntM nntl Japan had commuui
cuteil with tlioOovernnioutof Bra

purchase of the warships now
building for Brazil in England
and Germany. It seems that
JJrnzil'rt tinancial condition is
Hiich that she is ready to p"11 tlio
vessels. Tlio story is uoujuwhat
spoiled by a denial at Washing
ton. Of eveu dato with it, how
ovor, comes tho news that the
completion of tho Japanese battle
ships Fuji mid Yo-ihima in Eng
land lias been rushed, and there
is stated to be a general
,.. belief among natal officers
and diplomatists abroad, "that
!"' if the Fuji and Yoshima
reach the Pacific before the United
S , States annexes the Hawaiian isl-
,'( inids Japan will do moro than
' protest against that step." This
comes from an oflicer of the U. S.
S. Brooklyn, who repeats remarks
made by Sir William Henry "White,
a lending naval constructor, at a
dinner given to otlicurs of that
vessel. Sir William spoke in the
highest teinH of the American
Buips mid was glad to be able to
hope the British and Uuited
States navies would not bo called
to test their powers against each
other. "But you Americans need
to keep your eye- on Japan," he
said. "The Japai.eso are likely
to give you trouble." While all
this may only bo idle talk, it
show rt that the Japaueso scare is
not altogether manufactured in

Krport of the Committee Upheld
bjr Heavy Mnjorlly.
The House of Commons was
crowded, as were all its galleries
on July 20 in anticipation of a
spirited debate on tho report of
tho select committee to investigate
the Jameson raid. Philip James
Stanhope, Radical member for
Burnley, moved a resolution con
demning the report for its incon
clusive character, particularly for
its failure to recommend that
specific steps bo taken with re
gard to the admitted complicity of
Cecil Rhodes, aud asking that Mr.
Hawksley, tho attorney of Rhodes,
bo ordered to atteud at the bar of
the House and to produce the tele
grams which he refused to show
Mr. Stanhope, in speaking on
his motion, attacked the Charter
ed Company, Joseph Chamber
lain, Secretary of State for the
Colonics, and Cecil Rhodes, and
expressed a desire that the latter
should be deposed from his mem
bership in tho Privy Council. He
also wanted the charter of tho
company materially modified.
Henry Labouchere spoke in the
same strain. Ho said that he
thought if Canada should be raid
ed by tho Seoretury of Stato of
the United States without tho as
sent of tho President, England
would not be satisfied if tho Sec
retary of Stato were treated as
Cecil Rhodes had been.
Sir Michael Hicks-Beach,
Chancellor of the Exchequer, said
tho Government would have to
consider whether Rhodes should
remain in the Privy Council. But
in dealing with him it must take
into consideration the services he
had rendered generally. All the
damaging rumors olloging com
plicity on the part of the Colonial
Office had been exploded.
Sir William Harcourt, tho
Liberal leador, defended the com
mittoo and said he thought the re
port conclusive on all important
points. He strongly defended
Mr. Chamberlain. The charges
that the committee- had plotted to
suppress certain evidenco woro
worthy only of contompt. Ho
hoped he" would not live to see tho
day whon a majority of tho House
should declare by vote that they
did not trust tho word of its statesmen.

Mr, Chamberlain reminded tlio
opposition that it was duo to
thoir insistence that the commit
tee had boon appointed. Ho had
boon in a position, ho said, in
which ho felt liko judgo, witness
and defendant, and ho thought ho
deservod the sympathy of tho
House from tho fact that during
tho eighteen inonthn of difficult
South African negotiations, ho
had been worried by constant
irresponsible charges aud suspi
cions and ho was glad that he was
able to speak at last as a frco
As to tho telegrams ho said ho
had nothing against their publi
cation. Whatever they contained
was no evidence against tho
Colonial Office. Ho was con
vinced that while Cecil Rhodes'
failure was as great as a politici
an aud statesman could commit,
there was nothing that affected
his personal character as a man
of honor. It was said that he had
docoived others. So also did
Garibaldi, Cavour and other
patriots. It was a military neces
sity. Mr. Labouchere, by bringing
outrageous charges agBinst Rhodes
and Harris, had abused the
privilece of Parliament. The
speaker contended that Rhodes
had already been heavily punish
ed. The Government was not go
ing to prosecute him and deprive
him of his privy councilorship,
which had been conferred on him
for his great service, and alienate
his loyalty to South Africa.
Chamberlain said he was glad
to bo able to stuto that that por
tion of South Africa was better
now than it had been at any time
since the raid and President
Krueger was desirous to meet the
Government in a proper opiiit.

Mr. Chamberlain announced
that tho charter of the company
would not bo revoked, but that
means would bo taken to strength
en the directoiate soon, so as to
secure more direct imperial con
trol of Rhodesia. He was pre
paring a scheme which he expeot
ed would be put in temporary
shape before Parliament met
