torla the capital of the Transvaal
while the supreme court and other
high courts will be established in
Bloemfontein the chief city of the
Orange River State The sessions of
parliament are to be held in Cape
Town which is to be the seat of the
legislative government The parlia
ment is to consist of two houses the
senate and the house of assembly
four of which latter are to be appoint
ed In virtue of thorough acquaintance
with the wants and wishes of the col
ored races of South Africa The ap
pointment of the eight nominated sen
ators is to rest with the governor gen
eral in council and they are to hold
office for ten years The elected sen
ators are to be chosen by the pro
vmcial councils each province being
entitled to eight representatives
The house of assembly is to consist

provinces in the following manner
Cape of Good Hope 51 Natal 17
Orange River Colony 17 Transvaal

cabinet of United South Africa The

highly qualified for the important po
sition to which he has been chosen
His career is one of the most remark
able examples in recent history Ten
3ears ago he was an ordinary mem
ber of the Transvaal Volkstaad A
few months later his courage and
energy brought him to the supreme
command of the Transvaal forces
For over two years he sustained
against the British a struggle whose
hopelessness he realized fiom the be
ginning When the inevitable end
came near it was his influence with
his people that turned the scale in
favor of a foimal surrender which pre
served the political cohesion and
moral selfiespect of the Boers and in
cidentally insured his own supremacy
as their political leader
