Treatment ot the Boers.
(Associate! Press Special.)
Now York, March 23. Following the
full text of Winston Churchill's Lady
smith dispatch on treatment of Colo
nial rebels as cabled to the World:
What shall Britain do now with
thoso she calls rebels? has becomo n
very Important question.
They may bo divided Into four
classes tho ringleaders, thoso taken
in arms, those who mako voluntary
surrender otherwlso than on tho field
of battle, and thoso who creep back to
their farms without going through any
Tho persons coming under tho firbt
two categories, those who havo Incited
a district to rise or havo plundered the
farms of loyal farmers or havo com
mitted dishonorable acts of war, may
bo held to deservo sevens treatment
whether surrendering or taken ln
arms, for Insurrection has led to all
kinds ot misery and destruction. More
over, It may seem most desirable to
distinguish between this class and the
But thoso who wish to mako their
peace, whether formally or not, may be
sternly directed to remain on their
farms, working at their ordinary busi
ness, until tho Queen's plcasuro shall
bo made known to them.
This nollcy. I understand, Is practi
cally adopted In Capo Colony, but In
Natal, where thcro Is a great loyalist
majority, who feel very bitterly toward
their neighbors, who havo "assisted to
brlncr nvlla unnh the land" moro severe
treatment Is apparently desired. fl
cannot help thinking that this would
bo a mlstako, because for ono surren
dering rebel handcuffed nnd put In jail
ten desperate men will resolve to fight
to tho bitter end with tho Boers.
Tho British should not tr yfor their
pound of flesh, but only to bring about
n speedy and permanent peace.
A proclamation tending to encourage
desertions from tho Republican armies
similar to that Issued by Lord Roberta
might bo effective here. Many Natal
Dutch farmers aro anxiously watching
tho treatment thoso who surrender
receive, unmoved alike by loyal pas
sions or impractical sentiment.
I The British Government must cstab-
plead for n system ln which mercy nl
ready treads closo upon tho heels of
justice. Tho British have by no means
a monopoly of right ln this quarrel.
