June 2.— The announcement
of peace in South; Africa was celebrated
in' London -to'-riisht' with a': mild repetition
of the Maf eking" celebration. : Hundreds,
of thousands of people surged through; the
streets of London,; f rom r White Chapeir to.
Buckingham /. Palace, • but never at ; any,
time did the crowds equal : those which
created the •.verb';.', l to*.Mafflck.',':-.;;;ToVnight'
there was a; tremendous ;noise in- the
streets, a : pandemonium Vof; horns \ and
, cheers,' and, the ..coarse • jests of :* costers,;
but the abandon which marked j the an-,
nouncement; of ; the : relief of Mafeking
and-tLadysmith : was lacking-. -"Women, :
many :of them • carrying ; T babies : : boys,
drunken .loafers, and; others, glad of any
excuse to t defy : law.; and • order, -..were ; .the ■
principal -elements t in - : the ragged r proces-. ;
sions.- passing and repassing- through the
prindipal streets.". "The ;crowds,' concen-;
trated. in Regent- street and -the- Strand.V
and let -themselves loose. Women of* the ;
lower-class : ; jabber! j men in the face with"
feathers, :. flung an ;.•-: apology ;~ for ■'. confetti,"
and in ; turn were hugged -and i kissed- by
any man;who; found time for a diversion.'
A'few.'helpless policemen stood 'around
