Va.: After a bloody conflict of two years and a half duration the South African war has been brought to an end. The news of peace was wel come intelligence to the people of this country and was celebrated lustily ami pompously by the tiring of cannons, ringing of bells, patriotic cheering and last but not least, the consumption of considerable quan tities of the fluid that puts all cares and sorrows to rest and brings a fel low around on the sunny side of life; in fact this peace demonstration had a tendency to remind one of the festivities and merry making that takes place in the States on the Fourth of July. Of course I don’t mean to say that the American eagle was flipping about over this country or your Uncle Samuel Stars and Stripes was sporting his figure about the streets of London, because July 4th is not observed here and more than a few people don't know why, or that we do observe it. Not say ing much for the high degree of education in hngland. It happened to bo a British reverse ho it is only referred to in the appendix of the text hooks in a few lines of little old type like we would “set up” a patent medicine advertisement with. I reolly believe if it had not been lor the fact that Uncle Sam during the past few years has been making his Herculean strength felt and his sonorous voice heard throughout all chritendom this greatest of all days, his birthday, would have altogether been excluded from British history. As 1 write these lines 1 think of the approach of this memorable day, but then it seems soawkward tomakoanv reference to it in this country, where' the people can’t realize what a good, old-fashioned, realistic Fourth of July is like, after you explain it to them. I made the remark a few days ago that before the United Stales was half so old as Kngland the Fourth of July would he cele brated by the running up of the Stars and Stripes on the North Hole, the American etig’.e would look as large as Dumont’s air ship and a blaze of glory would pass through the hemispheres like an earthquake. I will acknowledge that the state ment is somewhat extravagant, hut then the average patriotic American cannot help hut foresee the future of this country in a light, similar to this. w w w * When you get down to the fact ot the matter it really seems strange to he in a country where everything belongs to one man. Every individ-i ual, animal, creeping and crawling thing, the fishes of the seas and in fact the entire British empire, lock stock ami barrel, is the property of the King. His power is limitless, lie can unseat every member of Parliament, disband the entire army, sell the navy out at auction, keep the proceedsand and the first man who made a whimper he could have beheaded. 'Falk about the Sheriff in Wayne nailing the first thing he gets his hand on to the cross tor taxes, why it’s not in it, with the sway the King ha*. • * * * 'Fite troops are returning verv j rapidly now from South Africa and fresh ones are being dispatched to *lo garrison duty. During the last* two months I have conversed with ■ several men who have seen service in South Africa. And nearly every one had something rather thrilling to unburden. By actual count I have already met met “pottering” about here in England who have, according to their own statement*, 1 ” ’ w ' 1 i I % * • ■ mmmmmmmH— killed more Boers than South Africa has ever contained. These chaps ha\e not been home long, so wo must make some allowance for that. I have heard some of the civil war vets spin sonic tall yarns ami that was several years alter everything was over. Perhaps just after hos. tilities ceased and their meinoiics were fresh, they could count tho % ictims by the scores and belch forth revelations brimful ot interest and romance. * * * * I.ord Kitchener, commander-in chief of the British forces in South Africa, was upon the proclaiming of peace by the recommendation of tho King, granted as a gift 50,000 pounds— *250,000. 1 don’t be grudge the general this sum of mon ey, hut if the British government were to commence at tho bottom of the list and compensate every man who served in South Africa accord ing to his worth, at this high ratio as a starter, they would have to send to sonic undiscovered land for all available money leforo John Bull would get half way down his pay roll. From present indications it would Hoem as though Uncle Sam does not intend to send any envoy extraordi nary to the coronation. lie has privileged a couple of individuals to attend but did not say ho would stand good for their expenses, so they have about come to the con elusion to make themselves conspic uous by their absence. About this there has been considerablecomment here in Kngland. They seem to think it rather strange that America will not make an outlay ot a few thousand dollars to be represented at this august occasion. But they have, not considered that Uncle Sam always spends his money where he can derive the greatest benefit. Stewakt L. Kit/,, KENOVA NEWS. ttflmrlff.
