With tlie Intention of Stopping the In

Africa The Portuguese and the Trans
vaal Authorities Believed To Be Con
niving at the "Trek" The Invaders
Well Armed and Good Fighter Inter
tng News from the Old World.
Losdox, May For a couple of
months or more England and Portugal
have been almost at daggers' points in a
dispute as to which should gobble the
territory in South Africa known as the
Manicaland and Mashonaland. Diplo
macy, aided by a "spirited foreign policy"
on the part of Lord Salisbury, has so far
been effectual in smoothing out the diffi
culties caused by the rash doings of Port
uguese officials. But now a new danger
has loomed up, and it looks like blood
would be shed before matters are settled.
For ttie Boer has been spying out the
land and concluded that it is good land,
and he wants it. He is therefore going to
take it 20', 003 strong if he can.
The Boer Is a Fighter.
This invasion is begun in spite of the at
tempts real or feigned of President
Kruger, of the Transvaal republic, to stop
it, and the situation has created a pro
found sensation in England. The war of
a few years ago with the Boers, when they
revolted against the British after having
previously come under English control by
treaty is well remembered. The Boer has
little respect for treaties when they stand
in tbe way of bis own sweet will, aad this
present invasion is directly iu the face of
treaty obligations. The British have a
lively recollection of Majuba Hill in tbe
last war, where a few hundred Boer sharp
shooters routed a strong Brish column, led
by one of England's favorite soldiers, Sir
George Colley, a cousin of Lord Wolseley
himself. Tbat victory dictated terms o
peace, and has never bieu avenged.
The Portuguese Conniving.
The Boers are evidently determined to
goon with ibeir "trek" into Mashona
land and the Portuguese colonial author
ities are plainly conniving at the inva
sion. Lord Salisbury uust act, or lose
tbe great English Cape Colony, which
will act without the mother country if
imperial troops are not promptly on the
ground. The ministry sees the danger,
and is determined to meet it. It is said
that the TraJlvaal authorities have made
only a pretense of objection to the under
taking, and tbat it has the hearty support
of all classes of the Dutch in tbe Trans
vaal. lirHish Preparing for War.
To-day tbe Wye naval storeship started
for Africa with a largj quantity of pro
visions and ammunition, and will be fol
lowed shortly by the troop ship Hima
laya with reinforcements for the cape.
Yesterday's advices state that the Boer
expedition is known to be thoroughly
equipped with arms and ammunition,
and is formed into a military organization
for tbe purpose of meeting any enemy,
native or British, tbat may obstruct the
way. They arj without artillery, but
their rifles .ire largely of recent importa
tion, and of the breech-loading pattern.
They march divided in four columns,
the women and children with the wagons,
in each instance, bringing up the rear,
and a pioneer corps with daily reliefs cut
ting tbe way ahead. Tbe progress will be
slow, and it is believed that there will be
ample time for the British troops to stop
tba "Trek" before it has passed the
bounds of Bechuana land.
British Battleship Launched.
LoSDoy, May 0. Another magnificent
battleship, the Empress of India, 14,000
tons and with a crew of 630 men, was
launched Thursday at Devenport. The

mony, which was attendsd by a brilliant
throng. The admiralty is pushing for
ward operations in the dock yards with
renewed energy, and the wages of the
workingmen have been raised as a stim
ulus to their Industry.
Horrible Deed of a Mother.
Berlin, May 'J. At Harnedeck the wife

her two children in white, held them over

ing a sacrifice. She was discovered before
she oould carry out this Dart of her de

MAKING FUN OF SMITH.

Contempt for Military Liguity. ZXl
London, May 9. Her majesty has taken
i. queer freak in making a present of a
t oat to tbe Second battlion of tbe Welsh
rsgimeut quartered at Devonport. The
officers of tbe regiment, while expressing
deep gratitude for her majesty's kindness,
are entirely at a loss to know what to do
v-ith the royal goat, which introduced
i'selftoits new owners by butting and
knocking down the colonel while at drill.
1 he officers have do taste for goat as a
diet, and do not think it a valuable addi
tion to the regimental equipment. How
ever, they have the goat, and have sent a
f( rmal address of thanks to her majesty.
Says Oar System Is Rotten.
Loxdok, May 9 The Manchester Cour
itr makes a savage attack on the United
S'atus anent the massacre of Italians at

rottenness of the American system of
