There Is at present visiting In this
city a gentleman who has, during the
ten years previous to 1897, been Inti
mately connected with the momentous
occurrences In South Africn. The gen
tleman Is Rev. James Hughes, pastor
of tho Baptist church of Klmberly,
South Africa. Rev. Mr. Hughes Is the
RBV. JAMES HUGHES.
guerft of his only brother. John Tit
Hushes, of South Rebecca avenue, and
Is accompanied on his visit here by his
wife and child.
The absence from his church Is an
enforced one, due to the Instructions
of the family physician. Rev. Mr.
Hughes had already buried three chil
dren and had ho not came away his
wlfp and two other children, who were
falling, would have succumbed. They
paid a short visit to friends In Eng
land, and then came to America for the
first time to visit Mr. Hughes' broth
er, whom he has not seen for over
thirty-three years. Since coming they
have all lmnroved In health rnnlrllv
and are charmed with this country and
With the object of procuring some
facts first hard from one who had been
so long In touch with South African
life, and especially at the time when
the now famous "Jamleson Raid" oc
curred, a Tribune reporter called upon
Rev. Mr. Hughes and procurred the
following Interesting story:
MR. HUGHES STORT.
Rev. James Hughes, a minister of
the Baptist denomination, Is a native
of Wales having been born in Blaena
von. He entered the ministry Avhen a
young man, received his first, call be
fore his graduation from Pontypool
Theological college. The call came
from Lancashire, England, and Imme
diately upon his graduation, he entered
upon the charge, remaining there near
ly twenty years.
While yet In charge at Lancashire,
a call came from Port Elizabeth, South
Africa for a Baptist minister. Upon ap
plication Rev. Mr. Hughes was strong
ly recommended to accept the Invita
tion by the president of the Baptist
union of England and Ireland. He
went, nnd after three years of suc
cessful work at Port Elizabeth was sent
by request of the leading men of the
Baptist denomination of Cape Colony
lo Klmberly, the natural center of the
diamond fields In point of population.
The object was to establish a Bap
tist church In this place and so suc
cessful was the effort that In three
years and a half, a spacious structure
was opened for the worship of God.
The cost exceeded I2G.F.00 and the build
ing had a seating capacity of nearly
one thousand. The debt has been fully
cleared, with the exception of a few
debentlture bonds, held by church
WHAT ARE PROMINENT.
The white population Is composed of
a great many diverse nationalities but
tho Welsh speaking part Is very large.
The great majority of the Welshmen
there do very well and many attain
prominence, as for Instance, the mayor
of East London is a Welshman. The
mayor of Port Elizabeth, Klmberly,
and Cape Town are all born "Cymros."
The manager and assistant mana
ger of the government railways which
cover quite a territory, are both Welsh
men and the chief manager of the
Beers Diamond mining company, the
largest In South Africa, is a Welsh
man, but of American birth. The gen
tleman, Gardner F. Williams, is in
deed a thorough American for all Klm
berly knows when a national Ameri
can holiday occurs by seeing the stars
and stripes floating from Mr. Wil
liams' residence. He Is the lineal de
scendant of Robert Williams, only
brother of Roger Williams, of Rhode
Mr. G. F. Williams comes by his
ability naturally through a long line
of capable ancertry and today is recog
nized as one of tho most competent
managers In the diamond Industry.
"What Is your opinion of Cecil
Rhodes?" was asked by the reporter.
In response, Rev. Mr. Hughes said:
"My opinion Is that the consensus of
opinion among the Impartial thinking
public, is that Mr. Rhodes Is one of the
most capable men we have ever had
In South Africa, and Is one of the best
qualified men to develop the resources
of that country. We all condemn
Jameson's raid, and consider that Mr,
Rhodes In that case, committed a huge
blunder for which the whole colony
Is sorry. Yet, while we admit that it
was a great wrong, It was not a wrong
OPINION OF RHODES.
"As these questions are under tho
consideration of a parliamentary In
quiry In Great Britain, I think It In
considerate to say more In relation to
this matter. As every man ought to
have his due, however, allow me to
say that Mr. Rhodes Is the most lib
eral man south of the Tambesl In South
Africa. He ivas tho hardest working
public man In the country. He Is the
strongest Imperialist and Is endowed
with larger capabilities than nearly
any other man In Cape Colony."
"I suppose, then, you are acquainted
with Oom Paul, or know something of
his personal characteristics," was a,
query of the reporter,
"Oh. yes," said Mr. Williams, "my
personal conviction Is that President
Paul Krueger, of the Transvaal Re
public, Is a man endowed with very
large natural capabilities, and If edu
cated to the extent of some ot the
present men ot other countries, he
woutd be a really conspicuous figure
In contemporaneous publlo lite. I be
lieve him to bo a good man In tho
truest sense of the word, but some
what misled In political matters by
Hollanders, who are hlghjy trained In
state craft, I am persuaded that If
President Krueger were left to not ac
cording to his own natural Instincts
and Intelligence, the trouble In tho
Transvaal would never have occurred.
Or, If anything had, by lnadvertancy,
occurred, It would have been settled In
the most amicable and satisfactory
"What about other prominent men
of the Capo Colony?" was further
asked of Rev. Mr. Hughes.
, MANY ABLE MEN,
"Well, in addition to these two pre
viously spoken of, wo have a liberal
sprinkling of very Intelligent public
and professional men. The prime min
ister at present In Cope Colony Is Sir
Gordon Hprague, and ne Is a gentle
man who stands high In the estima
tion of nearly every section of the
country. Ho Is the son of a Baptist
minister, nnd served, years ago, as par
liament reporter In tho house of com
mons for a leading London dally. Sir
Gordon Is surrounded In the Capo leg
islative assembly by a fair number of
practical statesmen. Men of consider
able erudition, energy and self-sacrifice."
"In the legal profession we have gen
tlemen who rank high In the opinion of
even the great legal lights of England
and we, of the Cape Colony, are proud
of our Judges and barristers. Com
mercial men are to be found In every
great centre of Industry of the coun
try, who are distinguished for their
business capacity, energy and success.
Many of them have thus made their
fortunes In South Africa.
"What are the general prospects of
the country" was the next query. "In
answer to that question I would ay
that,, Judging from statements which
I have received from reliable experts!
In different branches, my delllerat9
conclusion Is that there Is a very bright
prospect before South Africa, The
mineral resources of the country are
both varied and rich. The agricultural
capabilities of the country, especially
fruit cultivation, warrant the conclu
sion that profitable fields of Industry
will continue to open up for many
years to come wherein thousands of
poor men will find remunerative em
ployment. LACK OF WATER.
"The great drawback to agricultural
pursuits is want of water. The Cape
Colony government has coped some
what successfully with this difficulty
by procuring a quantity of diamond
drills and using them In locating water
In every locality of the colony that
was advisable. This was and Is being
done at the government's expense. In
every case, water of a good quality has
been found In abundance at depths
varying from a few feet to several
"These testings unquestionably prove
the existence of abundant water, but a
short distance below the surface. Act
ing upon this proof, the more rnergetlc
members of the Cape parliament have
decided to advocate a. scheme of Irri
gation throughout tho colony at tho
full or partial expense of the govern
ment. "This will make, should It ever come
to pass, and no doubt It will, the means
of living In South Africa considerably
cheaper than at present. The two
great Items of expense In living out
there, -are house rent and 'fuel. The
fuel obtainable Is almost entirely wood.
The climate, on the whole, Is really
charming and where there Is sufficient
water, vegetation, fruit and flowers are
"At present, however, I would cer
tainly not recommend young men to
go there unless they have employment
to go to when they arrive. Because
the labor market 13 glutted to a very
large extent. In addition to that, war
clouds are hovering over the country.
Though I do not believe this present
misunderstanding will end In a war,
still It would be wise to allow the
clouds to pass away and mutual con
cord be realized between all the states,
before men without capital at least,
rush out there.
A GREAT OUTLET.
"I am fully persuaded that South
Africa In a very, very short space of
time will prove one of the grandest
out-lets for the congested population
of the older countries. Also a country
where labor will be adequately enum
erated. "And what bearing has the press up
on the aspect of affairs In Cape Colony"
queried the reporter. "The press of
South Africa In the Cape Colony Is do
ing a great deal of good In the coun
try," Bald the speaker. The tone of
many pt the papers Is high and honor
able. The management of the press
generally Is very creditable and re
liable." "Of course the religious part of the
community is well taken care of?" was
asked. "As far as Cape Colony is
concerned, nearly every section of the
church of God Is found there in a flour
ishing condition. In the year of 1875
the Eplscopalean, or Church of Eng
land, was disestablished and since that
time all churches enjoy the same legal
rights and I am pleased to say that
the whole of Capo Colony seems to be
Interlaced with religious organizations
and Christian Influences.
"How do the recently established
Baptist missions piosper there?" "It
Is indeed only of late years that the
Baptist church In South Africa has
been able to take up mission work
among tho natives. But since we com
menced, a great deal of Juetul work
has been accomplished. Four missions
have been started. Two of them In
dustrial missions. In which tho native
Is taught to work and pray."
CONVERSANT WITH AFFAIRS.
Rev. Mr. Hughes seemed to be very
conversant with the political as well
as the moral sldo of affairs in that
country. Necessarily so as ho was

Tho Rev. Emas McLean, who died
at the Moses Taylor hospital Friday
evening, was a man of unusual Intel

spirit. He was a graduate of Hamil

seminary, and took high raffk In schol
arship. He was for some years a for
eign missionary In Chill, South Ameri
ca, with his brother, the Rev. Robert
McLean. The fervid consecrated ser
vice of the "McLean Brothers," as for
eign missionaries, had antered Into the
history of the Chilian mission. Owing
to the failure of tho health of his
family, Mr. McLean returned to this
country and devoted his life to home
missions on the Pacific coast In Ore
gon. He was so self-sacrificing In
his service that a simple reference to
It by one of the home missionary sec
retaries at the general assembly stirred
the great audience with sympathetic
admiration. On the death of his wife
to whom he was most tenderly at
tached, Mr. McLean returned east with
his five children, with the hope of re
gaining his own greatly Impaired
health. The Presbyterian church in
Elmhurst will never forget his able
and spiritual ministry, nor the Pres
