Boer War Denounced Cape Town, Dec. 4— Replying at Stellenborch, Cape Colony, to an ad dress presented to him by the leaders of the Afrikander bund, J. X. Merrtman, former treasurer of Cape Colony, in the course of an impassioned speech de nounced the war in South Africa "as one of the blackest spots in British annals." The present method of British warfare, he said, were such as encouraged the worst elements on both sides and were bound to prove fatal to the ultimate peace of the country. He declared that neither himself nor J. W. Sauer, former commissioner of public works, would at tend the Worchester congress, lest it should be said that the congress was engineered by politicians, and he ap pealed to all Afrikanders to speak boldly when upholding their rights and yet "to avoid wild language or actions which might lead to the abrogation of tbe last vestige of freedom." Mr. Sauer, whose speech was rather militant, demanded the removal of Sir Alfred Milner, whom he described as 'violently anti-Dutch." He declares if Great Britain deprived the two republics of their independence she would lose the affection of all South Africans. Refer ring to the Worchester congress, he urged the delegates to show firmness. Want to Become Americans.
