Nothing could tiro the Boer
heart to greater effort to capluro

ment that Cecil 11 bodes intends
to romain at that placo during the

things resulting from Tho Hague
Sir Thomas Liptou is still
gamo. While-preparing his de
fealrd yichtfnr return to England,
ho placos an order for the con
structiou of a new boa' to bo rotidy
to contest for tho American Cup
in 1901. Lipton's excellent fight
ing qualitt'B are such that it h a
qnestiou whether the American
people do-not fnvor .pivii g him

for his prompt notion in seoing to
it that the principal street of the
city eIiiiII not ho blocked in consr
qnenoH i a powwow botwoon
6treet railway or any other corpo
ratioufr. The lowu may divide itt
favor on tho question of the right
of tho warring cotnpanios to lay
tracks, but there is no division of
opiuiou oo tho proposition thut
neither of them shall bo allowed to
oontinuouelj block or inteifcrc
with traflio. If Minister Young
koops it up at this rato, tho Inter
ior Department will havo a record
for good work that will make its
demiso, whon tho change comes,
glorious and universally rofret
ted. News from the front iu tho
TrauBvaal tends to ch"cr tho hoart
of tho B-iliahors and bis sympa
thizers on account of the success
of tho British army. But at what
a cost his this been bought. The
loss of officers to tho British in
killed and wounded is terrific con.
sideriug tho total forces engaged.
The roaults thus far demon
strate that tho Doors can shoot
straight and strike hard and the
prospects of Great Britain gaining
its causo after a short season ot
hostilities fade into thin air The
reason for tho British retreat
mentioned in the latost despatch
es bus yet to bo -explained. It
does not necessarily ind'eato a
Boor victory, but it certainly does
not suggest that tho British are
in a condition to follow up their
suocosses. Compared with the
Boer war, our war in tho Philip
pinea is moro child's ploy.
