THE recent death of Robert Ce

chief of four cabinets of tbe
British empire and twelve years

to his ekWst son and heir, formerly
Viscount Cranborne, and Induces spec

his title and estates.

James Edward Hubert CJascdyne Ce

eldest 0 a family of seven five sons
and two daughters. As the son and
heir of the houso of Cecil he bore the
title Vtecount Cranborne, which now
goes to bis son Robert. lie began his

During his career in, parliament he
has done nothing to distinguish him
self either for brilliancy or ability as a
statesman. Since 1100 he has been ui
der secretary of state for foreign af
fairs. In January, 1902, Ird Cran
borne attracted much attention In thla
country and abroad by a statement in
the house of commons concerning the
attitude of England tow&rd the United
State9 prior to the breaking out of the
Spanish war. He said that immediate
ly before war was declared several
communications were received by the
British government from other powers
suggesting the presentation of a joint
note to President McKlnley. England
agreed, expressing the hope that fur
ther negotiations might lead to a
peaceful settlement, but first took stepa
to ascertain If such a note would be
acceptable to the president.
Lord Cranborne added that the Brit
ish government declined to associate
itself with other subsequent proposals
which seemed open to the objection of
putting pressure on the American gov
ernment. He declined to say by what
powers the later proposals were made
or to publish any papers on the sub
ject. The new Marquis of Salisbury was
educated at Eton and Oxford and was
married to Cicely, daughter of the fifth
earl of Arran, about twelve years ago.

LOBD EDWARD HERBEBT CECII..
Their eldest son, born in 1S93, If he
survives his father, will one day be the
fifth marquis of Salisbury.
i- But two other sons of the late mar
quis have come prominently before the
public. They are Lord Edward Herbert
Cecil and Lord Hugh Cecil. Lord Ed
ward is the fourth son and has won
considerable fame as a soldier. He is
a major In the Grenadier guards and
before the opening of hostilities was
pent to South Africa on special service.
ne was shut up in Mafeking with
Colonel Badi'ii-l'owell and was wound
ed in one of the sorties. He went with
the expedition to Dongola in 1890 and
was present at the taking of Omdur
nian and Khartum In 1898. Lord Ed
ward is a veritable son of Anak, and
his height, which is considerably over
six feet, makes him a noticeable figure
in any assembly. He married in 1894
a daughter of Admiral Masse of the
According to a story that emanated
from Lord Kitchener, Lord Edward de
serves as much credit as does Baden
Powell for the defense of Mafeking.
i Lord Kitchener relates that soon after
caching South Africa he came across
a well known Dutchman who was fill
ing large contracts for provisioning the
British army, from whom he learned
this incident: Just before the breaking
out of hostilities the contractor re
ceived instructions to send a certain
quantity of stores to Mafeking. While
shipment was going forward Lord Ed
ward Cecil called on the contractor and
asked for particulars of the stores.
These being supplied he said:
"Could you send four times as muchl"
"Yes, if I had authority," paid the
"Very well," said Lord Edward; "you
send four times as much as you' have
orders for, and I will give my note for
the cost of the surplus quantity. If the
government doesn't pay you, I will."
Considering the fact that Lord Ed
ward's financial resources were chiefly
represented by his pay as major, an un
dertaking to pay $lo0.000 to $200,000
out of his private purse was character
istically daring. The contractor thought
he was safe in dealing with the pre
mier's son and sent the stores. Mare
Ring was stocked with provisions and
general stores four times as great In
quantity as the authorities thought
was sufficient- According to Lord
Kitchener's testimony, that . is how
Mafeking managed to hold out.

Greenwich since 1S93. He is a typical
Cecil In appearance and temperament.
Those who are old enough to remem
ber his father as a young man say tha
Lord Hugh is the very duplicate of hfe
famous progenitor. He is regardedas
the enfant terrible of his party, but
was Idolized by the old marquis,who
looked upon the young man as the suc
cessor to the family honors in the po
litical arena. The dead statesman, it Is
said, long ago gave up the hope once
centered in his eldest son and heir. It
is to Lord Hugh that the Cecils look
for their continued glorification.
Tall, thin as a reed, very pallid, very
nervous his long, thin hands shake
for half an hour before he is going to
make a speech he looks more like a
hungry curate than the .free lance
politician of thirty-four. He has great
powers of eloquence, is unusually
Quick, belligerent in manner, .unre
sponsive to the most urgent appeal for
moderation or" reason other than that
which agrees with his own set views
and has an unhappy manner of 'mak
ing enemies of his intimate friends.
But he Is a Cecil all over, even to the
family stoop and the shabbiness of his
clothes. He was of course born In poli
tics. After leaving school he was made
private secretary to bis father, who
was then foreign minister, and, being
a good Tory, as well as his father's
eon, was in due time elected member
from Greenwich. He represented his
electors so creditably and respectably,
for he always managed to get his name
Into the papers, thus giving Greenwich
a boost In its own estimation, that he
was elected again, and he bids fair to
represent Greenwich for the rest of hs
political life, which promises to be
long, strenuous and interesting"
The halo of the Cecil name protects
him from abuse, and the prestige of It
gives him a power that another young
man of equal ability could not com
mand. In England he is regarded as
the ablest of the sons of the late leader
and a possible prime minister In the
distant future. But he has a long and
rugged road ahead of him and many
difficulties to overcome before he readi
es that eminence, if he ever does.
