Original Views of an Influential Boer Who Has Studied the Transvaal Situation. p-p^HERE Is a strong suspicion that the defection of the Cape Afrikanders to the I forces of the- two republics Is much more general than the censored news I received In Europe would lead one to suppose. Mlddleburg, Paarl. Vlc- J. torla West. AVorcester, Wellington, Malmesbury have not yet been Invaded by the Boers, but the population is in a state of ferment, as the Enslish cor respondents Inform their papers. Members of some of the best families have Joined the Boers. The son of Mr. Theron, member of the Cape Parliament, wired to his father: "Farewell! I'm off to the front." Theron sent the message to Sir Alfred Milner with the short remark: "This is my only son!" We summarize the following from the Gotha Petermann's Mittheilungen, as to the relative strength of the Dutch and Anglo-Saxon elements: The official British statistics furnish no clew as regards the number of Dutch, but the church registers of the three great Dutch churches do. TJey have a registered membership of 350,000. All these may be reckoned as sympathiz ers with the Boers. Dutch Afrikanders of the towns and mines who have been Anglicized are not Included in this estimate. But even with these, the English element number hardly 140,000. exclusive of the troops as there are lOOuo to 20,000 of other nationalities. Of the white population in the republics. 250.000 are Hoers, 60.000 British and 40.000 other "UiUanders." Throughout all South Africa there are 6-15,000 Boers, 245,000 British and 9*3.000 other whites. ¦ . ¦ • • -•¦• -*,"-., It is claimed that illiteracy Is less common among the Boers of Cape Col ony than in England, and that although the wealthy Boers prefer on the whole to lead the life of country gentlemen, the percentage of highly educated men i» greater among them than among the same class in England The ideas that this class entertain concerning England are probably fairly well represented In the following communication addressed by an Afrikander, then resident In London, to the London Times several weeks ago: We are not as ignorant as British statesmen and newspaper writers, nor are we such fools as you British are. We wanted delay, we got it, and are now prac tically masters. We know facts, Buch as the following: I. The powers do not Intend you to get possession of the Transvaal gold. After encouraging you to believe that they will not interfere, they will assist us direct ly or indirectly to drive you out of Africa. 1-iZ'l, 2 We know that you dare not take the precautions necessary, to prevent this, as your lazy, dirty, drunken .working classes will not allow themselves to be taxed sufficiently to preserve the empire. . 3 We know that you are permitted to exist as a power only on suffrance.

We can afford to tell you the truth now^ ¦ WAYS THAT ARE DARK SHOULD the Supervisors carry out the recom mendation of the Finance Committee, this city will for some time to come be literally a com munity of "ways that are dark." The recommenda tion is that from March 1 to July 1 the. street lamps shall be unlighted. That means that during the four months of March, April, May and June the city is to have no lights except such as shine through the win dows of shops and barrooms. At least two of these months are within the rainy season, when the nights are apt to be clouded and »yen the starlight obscured. Thus for many nights we are to have the blackness of Egyptian gloom, and a carnival time for all the criminal classes that prowl in the dark. The excuse for this outrage upon the community is that of economy and reform. The people put trust in the loud vauntings of the reformers at the last elec tion, and now they receive the reward which never fails those who are credulous enough to believe the professions of that class of politicians. It was in a condition of mental darkness that the suffrages of the people were given" to' the reformers, and it is in four months of physical darkness they will have to repent their folly. It is now conceded by the reformers themselves that it will cost more money to conduct the municipal government under the new charter than under the consolidation act. They are ready to make that.con cession, for they arc now in office and have no fur ther use for misrepresentation and buncombe. m More money is needed and more money will have to be forthcoming, and until it is forthcoming the city is to be in darkness and. the people are to stay at home at night, carry lanterns, or take their chances with thieves, thugs and hoodlums in the gloom. Some of the reformers have grown weary of the consequences of their folly and have begun to devise ways and means for avoiding them. Assessor Dodge is one of that class. He recently concocted a scheme to raise the assessment of property in San Francisco to the extent of $100,000,000, and requested the State Board of Equalization to connive at the fraud with out taking advantage of it. His request was that the State Board should cut down the assessment he pro poses to make by $100,000,006, so as to prevent San Francisco property from being taxed to that amount for State purposes, while the tax was collected for municipal purposes. It is to such a condition we. have been brought by the Phelan reformers. The Assessor is to put us up to tricks that are vain, and the Supervisors are to reduce us to ways that are dark. In the nights of gloom when the taxpayer wends his way home through the unlighted streets he will have ample op portunity to meditate upon the ways of political re formers in general and the Phelanites in particular, and if he escape the dangers of the dark he will know how to vote when the next municipal election takes For the present there appears no remedy for the evil. At the very threshold of the new era, at the very time when the expanding commerce of the Pa cific Ocean is likely to attract most attention to San Francisco, we are to exhibit ourselves as a. back number town — as the only city of its size in the civilized world without street lighting at night. TO AMEND THE CARTER. BY the subtle skill of Attorney Pillsbury the new charter was dra-.vn up in such a way as to de prive the municipal government of authority to supervise and regulate telephone companies. Flushed with gratification at the success of the trick and san guine oi their power to defy the people, the telephone companies have announced a determination not only to maintain their present exorbitant rates and old abuses, but to shirk their taxes by shifting them upon" the patrons of the line. "We sha'l put the taxes in the bill," said the secretary of the company, "and then we shall sec some lively kicking." Jt is one of the good things of this world that the law of compensation works out redress for almost all evils. "He that roars for liberty faster binds the tyrant's power, and the tyrant's cruel glee forces on the freer hour." The ululation of the telephone men over their "cinch" upon the public has aroused popu lar indignation, and there is a bright prospect ahead of 5 redress that will be drastic and lasting. The people have two avenues of redress against the exactions and the tax-shirking of the telephone com pany. By one they can appeal to the Legislature. By the other the\- can take the matter in their own hands and amend the charter so as to restore to the municipality in rightful power to supervise all cor porations operating under municipal franchises and controlling public utilities. The first avenue can be resorted to only when the Legislature meets next winter. In the meantime, therefore, it will be worth ¦ bile to make use of the second. The charter provides that whenever 15 per cent of the voters at the previous municipal or State election <hall petition the Supervisors to call an election for the purpose of amending the charter, it shall be the duty of the Supervisors to do so. and to make all pro visions for it. Under that clause it is in the power of the people to restore to the municipality the power of which it was cheated by the cleverness of the tele phone attorney. Since the telephone company appears determined neither to pnt a «top to its exactions nor to pay its tu\es. it will be well for the people to take steps at once to call for an election for such an amendment. The issue is one of the highest importance, because if tl:e telephone company be permitted to shift it? taxes o;>on the public, other corporations will follow the evil example. The attention of public-spirited citi zens should be given to the issue at once. As it stands the charter is gravely defective in exempting one cor poration from a rule that applies to all others, and the defect should be remedied without delay. cans of Congress a blunder in party politics as well as in statecraft. In 1896 the Republicans pledged them selves to re-enact a protective tariff, maintain the gold standard and provide for American shipping. Two of those pledges have been fulfilled. The gold stan dard has been firmly upheld, a comprehensive protec tive tariff is in force, and, despite the efforts of Ka.< son to weaken it by one-sided reciprocity, treaties, will continue in force. There" remains the shipping industry of the country to be provided for, and that duty should be attended to before the Presidential campaign opens. In a broader view of the case, it will be unfortunate for every industry of the nation if the shipping bill be not passed, for at this juncture in our affairs the wel fare of all is dependent upon the expansion of our commerce and the transportation of our surplus products to foreign markets. The protective tariff it self will be hardly more beneficial to the country than this measure, vhich is designed- to supplement it by giving protection to our industries on sea as well as on land. The opposition is powerful. The subsidized steam ship companies of the Old World dread the menace of American competition, and they rind not a few allies in our own country to co-operate with them in their efforts to prevent such competition. Added to their strength is all that of the inveterate free traders, who oppose anything in the way of governmental aid to industry. It is a formidable force to overcome, but the strength that supports the bill is strong enough to master it. Republicans who are resolute in the con test will find the people. with them on election day. 5 •¦¦"'- ¦ ® ffi - gjL & • - .

The Brit ish have withdrawn a good many Atlantic steamers for the transportation of troops to South Africa, and the United States has none to take their place. Commenting upon the situation the Boston Trans cript said on February 1: "The taking off of the Etruria for transport service has led to various irregu larities iti our foreign mails. The Pennsylvania has been held to take her mails from this side, and the Germanic has suffered a similar fate in taking the mails of the Umbria." To that statement of fact is added: "Postal authorities are agreed in the opinion that an American line of mail steamers given a proper subsidy would bring about an improvement at once in mail service, not only by the actual carrying of mails from this country on Wednesdays and Sat urdays of each week, but by stimulating the British lines to activity and toning up the foreign service. At present the mails for this country from England are taken at Liverpool, although the last land touched is at Queenstown. Were the foreign mails carried by the American line, for instance, they might be taken on at Southampton, some nineteen hours later, r.rTording another business day's mail an opportunity to be fonvarded quickly to this country. From the point of view of the postal service, nnd of course this is more or less the point ofr.view of every business house with foreign correspondents, an American mail subsidy would prove of immense value." That is but one of the many evidences the time affords of the urgency of the upbuilding of our merchant marine. It is an important phase of the issue, ' but by no means- the most important, for we need a merchant marine to carry our commerce as, well as to carry the mail. It is, however, a pertinent. subject for consideration, since it has happened just at" trie time when Congress is apparently hesitating to enact the shipping bill the country demands. To neglect to provide for our merchant marine at this session would be upon- the patt of the Republi- Congressman Sulzer has astounded his friends by an unexpected exhibition of common sense.

ACCORDING to one of our Scotch exchanges there has been recently tested on the Tay an invention which promises to be of even more advantage to ocean transportation than the famous Turbina, of which so much was heard a year or so ago. The latter invention is one of mechanism, and can be made use of in a steamship only by displacing a considerable part of the machinery now employed. The new one can be used in any kind of a steamship and with any kind of machinery, since it consists solely in providing a lubricator, which will permit the ship to pass through the water with little or no fric tion. It is well known that when a steamer is propelled through the water she meets with a degree of resist ance that varies with her speed. As the inventor, R. S. Baxter, is quoted as putting it: "It is a case of one body being forced to slide upon another without the intervention of a suitable third body between them ?o act as lubricator." It is said the only substance that can be profitably used between the ship and the tea as a lubricant is air, and the inventor claims to have devised a ireans by which its use is made prac ticable. The "aspirator." as the machine is called which supplies the air, is described as being self-acting and Without any moving part*. It is a V-shaped air channel, which passes down the vessel's stem as far as the keel, and in most cases goes a certain distance along the keel. Tins channel may be cither inside cr outside the vessel, and is provided with certain protected openings or ports constructed in such a v.':v that the water rushing past them produces a minus pressure within them, and consequently draws oft a continuous stream of air, which, passing along the subu:crged surface of the ship, cuts off the im !¦¦¦ diate contact with the water, and therefore the w.ter friction. It is the claim of the inventor that by means of his proces- a rtcamer make*; her voyage in a con tii.'jous air jacket. The air of course ultimately rises to the surface of the water, but if the ship be goin^ r't a fair degree of speed «he will pass her whole !r:-glh through the air current before it escapes. It i> >aid that in the experiments made with steamships CJi the Tay there was an increase of speed amounting to from 2\ to 26 per cent of the ordinary speed of th* fhip, and it v.-as noted that the greater percentage of increase was in ships that had the greater speed. to The lets made in the Tay can hardly be taken as sr.^cient demonstration of the usefulness of the in v<:ition. It appear?, however, to be one that can be cVsily tried and without great cost on ocean steam er?. If the claims of the inventor, therefore, be Well founded it will not be long before the air-jacket will be used on nlmost every steamship that crosses the !fi. We fhail then have not only air-brakes on our j^ilroads lv-it air lubricants on our ships, and per haps, rrc ionfr. condensed air or liquid air to run the mechanism of both.

THE POLICE COMMISSION. ,\ A .AYOR PHELAN has been baffled in his ef / V fort to turn the. Police Department over tc * * Andrew M. Lawrence and the'gamblers, but he has found under the charter a means of revenging himself upon the man who baffled him, and William J. Biggy has been dismissed from the Police Com mission. For the present the issue rests with the re organization of the commission by the -appointments of William T. Wallace and D. I. Mahoney, and the election of William P. Sullivan Jr. to the position of Chief of Police. .With the new order of things the public will be fairiy weil satisfied. The new Commis sioners and the new Chief will be given the confidence of the people to start with, and they will not lose it unless they betray it. Out of the controversy Mr. Biggy emerges with '-honor. Long ago the Examiner said of him:. "He is [ the sort of man who could make himself felt whether ihe stood with eleven or alone. If he were in a minor ' ity he would meet every corrupt scheme with an op ! position so vigorous, persistent and' disturbing that : he would attract the attention of the whole com- I niunity." As a Police Commissioner Mr. Biggy ful- I filled the literal and plain meaning of those words, ' bm the false journal that published them is now re i riling him because he did not give the lie to its com- I mendation. • Before the subject is dismissed from public con sideration it is well that "due attention be given to certain features of it which arc of permanent interest because of the light they tlirow upon the character of the principal persons involved. In the first place, let Mayor Phelan.be judged by the evidence of his own statements/ made not in the carelessness of private conversation, but in the deliberatcness of public docu ments. In his communication to the Board of Supervisors setting forth his reasons for removing Commissioner Piggy the Mayor refers to the cause which led to his appointment, and says: "In appointing the Police Commission I had it at first composed of Messrs. Thomas, McNutt, .Newhall and David I. Mahoney, subsequently named as a member of the Board of Fire Commissioners. The day before the appoint ments were announced Mr. Biggy made a personal application and appeal to me for this place, to which I yielded." Contrast that statement of the Mayor with tin's, which he made in an open letter to the Examiner, published January 17: "I think the character of my appointees is a sufficient guarantee to the public of the sincerity of my intentions. I had canvassed their names in common with others and found them free from entangling alliances. William Thomas was at the head of his profession. Dr. W. F. McXutt stood in the same relation to his profession. W. J. Biggy had an irreproachable public record, and George A. Xewhall was a leader among merchants of the city." Such are two of the statements of the Mayor con cerning the appointment. In the one he asserts he had thoroughly canvassed Mr. Biggy's fitness for the cilice and found him a man. of irreproachable public record. In the other he "asserts he had not consid ered Biggy at all, but at the last moment gave tt\e ofHce at Biggy's personal solicitation. Both of these statements cannot be true, for the truth is ever consistent with itself: but both can be false, for falsehoods are not bound by consistency. Both of them are false. The truth is given by Mr. Biggy himself in the announcement that he was given the appointment to the commission not by Phelan, but by Lawrence, to whom the Mayor had given the four Police Commissionerships to be filled by Law rence's friends. With that evidence now fairly before the public the statements of The Call concerning Phelan's ante election pledges have been proven beyond further gainsaying. The reformers, moreover, have now a full revelation of the character of Phclan and of the kind of men to whom he was and is willing to intrust the police affairs of the community. In the exppsure of this shameful agreement and conspiracy we have no desire to linger. It may be that in politics as in other matters "all is well that ends well," and in some re spects this fight has ended to the satisfaction of the public. The Lawrence bargain has been defeated and the scheme of the gamblers baffled. For that good result the public is indebted to*\Villiam J. Biggy. who retires from office with an unstained honor and the satisfaction of having saved the city from disgrace and the people from the corruptions of a wide-open niURSDAY FEBRUARY 15. 1900 , JOHN D.
