W?. L. Wilson :r. the Ecer War.
Lexington, Va , Ooi 15 Hon. W.
I. Wilson, president of ?Aaahlngton
and Les University, used as ths ?topic
of his last address before the students
Of the university that which is now
the i?sue of great in tercet England
and the Boer?.
He ?aid that when Southern Africa
wa? acquired from the Dut' h by the
English there was found there a people
descended from the Dutch Theos |???
pie had now cut loose from European
customs and de?ire ouly the name of
Afrikander? They became, Mr. Wil?
son ?aid, a slave-holding .narrow people.
In I88S, when England emancipated
the slave?, the Boers orgauized them?
selves Into a grand trek ami wandered
into Southeast Africa, away from the
English, where they could live accord?
ing to laws of their own makiug The
result of this emigratlou was the es?
tablishment of the Transvaal Republic.
The attempted ?ecession was looked
upon by England with mu< h disfavor,
and frequent fight? occurred. Finally
affairs assumed such a state that a del?
egation of Boers conferred with the
English, and the result was that the
Transvaal was put under the British
A majority of the Boers became dis
?atisfied when the British flag became
the dominant emblem of|t he Transvaal.
Notwithstanding the defeat of the
British at Majuba Hill bv the Boer?
and the British cry for vengeance,
Gladstone t?>ok up the cause of the
Boers, dared SO do right, and restored
to them their rule.
Diamond? and gold in large quanti?
ties were ?con found in the Boer?' ter?
ritory and the result disastrous. Ad?
venturers poured into the rich fields.
Johonnesburg was built, property was
acquired, mine? were opened by the
throng? that poured in The Boer? re?
sented this intrusion. Heavy taxes
were Imposed upon the strangers, and
they were not allowed to take part in
It wa? inevitable that a struggle
would ?oon begin for recognition for
political rights and the disfranchised
appealed to England. If it is to be
war. the one disastrous result can be
readily foreseen. The intrepid B ?ers,
brave, obstinate and willing to fight to
the death, will be completely crushed
by the equally brave Eugltshmen.
Ar. Cr^anized Secret Movement tc Pre?
vent the Nomination of McEinley.
The Washington, D. ?., Star of
Tuesday ?ay? :
' 'There is an organized secret move
ment looking to the defeat of Presi?
dent McKinley for renomination. The
existence of the movement is known to
some of the President'? friends, ami it
is raid that the President was induced
to make hi? western trip .somewhat of
a campaigning tour with the view of
counteracting what is being done un?
der cove r by his enemies The posi
tlvesnoss and openness of the Piesi
dent'B recent speeches, especially that
of Monday in Wisconsin, in which he
comes out without equivocation in de?
fense of the policy of expansion, is re?
garded as proof that he ha? become
thoroughly satisfied that the country
is behind him in this p >licy and that
by that sign he can defy all opposition.
It is known that the planning to
bring Admiral Dewey into tbe field as
a candidate against the President is
not the only thing that is being laid
ont in the way of developing an op?
position in the Repaid ican national
convention. An effort is being made
to perfect an organization strong
enongh to prevent McKinley'? renomi?
nation independently of the oandidacy
of any particular man at this time in
mind. If Dewey should be availablei
he would probably be the first choice,
but it 1? not proposed to make the issue
dependent npon hi? availibility. How
far the movement has met with en
conrgement cannot be ascertained, but
a number of prominent men have been
approached on the subject and a defl
nite plain of campaign has been dis?
closed to them.

The News also says :
' 'It is a strange spectacle to see the
tail wagging the dog. and it would be
nu lers strange and revolting should the
manly Democrats of Louisa fail to throw
oil the collar of a oourt house bosslsm
and boldly proclaim that country law

not to wear it a moment. No

be a short while before Democrats will
say that Editor Bibb was right and he
can read his praise in their eyes while
the machine gang and their small
?rheuies, tricks, aud favoritisms will
be begging alms of oblivion and hiding
their heads from the fury of an angry,
deceived and indignant people. "
The News after thus speaking calln
for the defeat of the Democratic nomi?
nee in these words :
' 'Democrats who voted for Horace
Ureely because he was the party nomi?

tor Bibb is a party man and believes in

The Baltimore Sun says : "Reports
from all the seaport cities of tho South

A case in point was the sale in Maoon,
