some degree, is true. The standard of
manhood ought to be raised and is

pose the government gave all men a
training simply for industrial purposes
and put them into trade schools instead
of camps? A similar but far higher

The report of the French Millers'

harvest of 1839 Indicates that the

from average years, and will be as bad
as In 1897, which was one of the worst
years on record. In Germany wheat Is
satisfactory, although slightly less so
than In 1898. In Austro-IIungary the
estimate exceeds last year's produc

France reports from twenty one de

The prevalent opinion in England is
that President Kruger is playing a
great game of bluff at Pretoria. He
held a long session with the secretary
of state and the attorney-general at
the telegraph office on the 14th. He
was apparently communicating with
the Orange Free State. Orders have
been issued to the field cornets to sup
ply all unarmed burghers with Mauser
rilles free of charge. The Dritish gov
ernment, on its side, is making counter
preparations. Quantities of war stores
have been forwarded to Dechuanaland,
and the North Lancashire regiment is
under orders to proceed there at a mo
ment's notice. Since it is expected the
Doers would make a dash for Kimber
ley in order to cut off the Cape from
Rhodesia, the Dritish are preparing to
guard the railway bridge across the
Vaal river at Fourteen Streams, where
the Doers have a field battery.
Later The Transvaal situation is
unchanged. Great Dritian's demand
for a joint inquiry as to the effect up
on the Uitlanders of the proposed
franchise reform measures, makes mat
ters look more serious, and the Dritish
war office has completed arrangements
for an emergency force of 2 ),000 men
to be ready to leave for South Africa
within a week.
That Transvaal TrouMo.
The Transvaal government, it is re
ported at Cape Town, has handed its
reply to the Dritish agent at I'retoria,
to be forwarded to Sir Alfred Milner,
Dritish high commissioner for South
Africa and governor of Cape Colony.
Conflicting accounts are: given as to its
contents, and it is possible that the
report is premature and that the reply
will be delayed, owing to the trouble
with Portugal about the transport of
ammunition, consigned to the Trans
vaal, now in Delagoa bay. Strong
feeling has been aroused by the fact
that the Transvaal is sending large
quantities of war material for distribu
tion among its supporters in Cape
Colony and the Orange Free State.
Over seven tons have been landed at
Port Elizabeth on Algoa bay and sent
over Cape railway lines to Alhval for

Sebastian Faure and Faberot, well
known revolutionary anarchists, were

things he said that the anarchists
