In her twelve centuries of hlstorv Great
Britain has fought more battles and won
more victories than anv other nation of the
present or past. She has contributed offi
cers and men to nearly every great armed
conteat where principle was at stake. She
was largely the cause of the undoing of
Rome and she wrested from Spain her
proud title as mistress of the seas. Three
times she hurled the French from the pin
nacle of national glory. Yet never in all
this military history has England put such
an army in the field as is contemplated bv
the late orders of her ministry in council.
It Is plain that tde British realize that
amongst European powers England has
nothing but enemies. The Russian bear
has for minv fenerations been possessed
with hungry longing for India and a port
on the Mediterranean. French inter
ests in Africa conflict with those of Great
Britain, and France is a tradition >1 enemy
of the English. In spite of the ascendency
0 < Von Buelow in Germany, it is well
known that there is not an ami-ible feel
ing on the part of Germans f? r the Eng
lish. while they claim kinship fur th?
Beers. It would take but little to cause
Holland to cast her fortunes with those ol
her race in South Africa. These are the
conditions that nave caused the alarm
through*!! the Linked Kingdom over Brit
ish reverses at the hands of the Afrikan
ders. and thev are responsible for the
tremendous army of a half million men
which Grea: Britain will have fully equip
ped in a few weeks.
England has a two-fold object in view.
It Is desire 1 to have her men readv for ac
tion in case one or more of the nations of
Europe should see tit to take advantage of
Grtat Britain's predicament to settle some
teal or Imaginary grievance with her; and
It l? also intended as an object lesson The
world is to be shown that it * as not on
account of any financial weakness that
Buller was fum shed an army entirely In
men In the field within a few weeks readv
to act with her wonderful navy, the tern
tition tor ambitious continental statesmen
to achieve fame thiough defeating Great
Britain will not je so allurng as it other
wise would be.
Those people who profess to believe that
Englishmen are losing their heads over
the South African situation should look
deeper >nto the situation. The British do
not propose to be caugfit napping. The
lion is simplv awakening, and giving an
exhibition performance to show his great
latent strength.
UtUMlX W ItTII ?M.
The thermometer reached 40 below z;r>
at Dawson Tuesdav and 42 yesterday. It
Is to be hoped that this will satisfy t.-ose
who h ive been praving tor cold weather
there- The D.wson News of the 1st
claimed that the November weather was
"too warm for comfort." and It was teai
ful for the health A the community if It
did not get colder. It ir evident, however,
that there is Something in the standpoint
from which one views the subject of
weather. For instance, .he following from
the Dawson pacer quuted, would indicate
that a Dawsonite's idea of "too warm for
comfort" might not agree with the opin
ions of a resident of Florida or Southern
California. The News savs:
"The days have alwavs been warm
that is, an average of 10 above? wh'ch is
considered too warm for comfort in this
countrv. ? ? ? ? Whatever
may be takinj? place In nature, the fact
remains that this November weather on the
Yukon is unprecedented and that a little
more snappv and seasonably cold weather
would be not only mare acceptable but de
cided I v more hejlthy."
daw no:
The Dawson News has commenced a
crusade against the custom of overweigh
ins of told, which, it alleges, prevails
amongst the retail dealer* in the Klondike
metropolis. It claims tt) t the purchaser
will lose on an average f i out of every Is
spent at Dawson's retail stores on account
or this pernicious custom alone. The
News accuses the merchants with purpose
ly loading their weights tor the sole pur
pose of cheatinf the public- It estimates
that In one year Dawson mine owners and
wa(e earners lost $1,000,000 to the avarl
dousness of the small trader by this pro
cess alone. The News' remedv Is an offi
cial sealer of weights and measures, whose
duty It should be to officially test and
stamp all the weights In use,and to prevent
the use of any not so tested and stamped.
This complaint Is one that has been
many times told of the Klondike cap! al,
md the wonder is that It had njt long ago
been a subject for official inquiry. The
Canadian authorities stop other swindling 1
"sure thing" games promptly, and If the
tmth Is told by the News, and it Is veri
fied by Dawson people generally, there has
been more monev taken from the producer
bv this method many times over than by
all other swindles combined. The News
will have the good wishes of all good ctt- '
Izens of the northwest In Its efforts.
