MninUnlnn Hie mcuauBica treacherous natives. Horded Together for the Purpose of Massacre, Buluwayo. Anril 18. A feeling of nnrolimislnn lis to wllllt tllO tlCXtStOD hi the revolting Matabclcs wlllboper- ueates all circles here. Information nmimr from the country around aakes It certain that the natives arc rcparlng an offensive movement gainst the place. The number or (ntabclcs reported guthorlng at nlnts near bv 18 sufficient to appall he hearts of oven experienced fight krs. There la a dread in the minds of nany that the place is in danger of nlnir overwhelmed by a rusn or Homes if Mutnbeles. and the Inhabitants put to a wholesale massacre. I Tho fear of treachery Is added to tho approhenslon of overwhelming numbers. Many Indications point to i connivance with the war parties of Supposed friendly natives. There arc many of the latter in the town ltscir, ind no white man feels sure how far he can trust his diisky associates or crvants. On Wednesday evening, tluee Dutch frcouts were sent out from hero to se- euro Home dcflnlto and accurato In formation of the position and move- ients of the natives. What they have as not Bervea to relieve uie nnxiuty nd suspense. They report that the latabeles are gathered llko ants in hill on the Umgusa river, only six illes north of here. That eomo treacherous plot Is being concocted Is adlcated by the fact that native wo- jiicn arc secreting European clothes. Che native men on the veldt wear the itlve costume, while most of those Buluwayo wear clothes approach- ag the European fashion. By attlr- fig tho native warriors In European irments, the Matabeles hope they Drill be able to enter tho town un questioned. ;AMatabele "boy" has also been sught stealing badges belonging to (ie Rhodesia horse, and it Is believed mt it was Intended to use these for tic purpose of disguise to further ome treacherous project for taking luluwayo at a disadvantage and klll- g tho Inhabitants. It Is plainly otlceable that the natives in the own are becoming as thick as bees. i ordinary times, the natives come ad go In town without attracting at- sntlon. The native population Is at II times a shifting one, and a large imbcr of the men that make It up re not known lndlvldua iy to wnue jplo of the town or to the author- ties. The.factthat the natives in no town live apart from the whites Ms to the difficulty of Identifying oso who belong In the town. tBut there Is little more confidence 111 In the natives who belong In the wn than In the hostile men who It believed, are surreptitiously being itroduced to aid from within when i attack shall bo made from without. looks now as though that might cur at any time. iThe roads by which communication WHITES HEATED you that hot water "rots"! glass. Dust Powder time, your strength, yourj Is hnd with the south, both tho one to Tuli and the ono to Mafcktug, are felt to bo In peril. There arc, un doubtedly, large numbers of hostile natives between Buluwayo and the settlements to the south, some of them In open revolt. The situation is felt to bo most serious and threaten ing. confirmed. CAPirrowN, April 18. Military men, wonts, Dutchmen and English civil ians of all classes, veteran tioopcrs and government officials concur In the statement that the governor of Cape Colony, Sir Hercules Robinson, has not told tho truth if ho notillcd the homo government that Buluwayo Is no danger. It Is evident to every body hero that the British at Bulu wayo are In a most critical position. Tho chief point In their weakness is in the sninllncss of their numbers and the immensity of hordes of Mata beles that are gathering for nu at tack. American Salvationists. The published statements of Bal Ungton Booth about the causes which led him to leave tho Salvation army will, unless disproved, go far to com mend tho now volunteer movement to the sympathies of tho American peo ple. Mr. Booth declared that the earlier reasons given for tho rupture in tho army are tho truo ones. General Booth took offense at tho display of stars and Btripcs in Salvation Army processions and in its hulls nnd homes, and went so far as to decide upon the Incorporation of various territorial bodies of the forco with tho depart ment of Canada as ono means of wip ing out tho distinctive signs and spirit of American patriotism. This course was actually followed toward Dakota, North Montana and North Washington army districts which are now governed from Toroiito, whither all the monoy raised In them for Salvationist purposes is sent. Had not Balllngton Booth resigned when be did nnd precipitated a new issue it is probable that, before this time, all tho localities In tho United States whero the Salvationists have estab lished themselves would be. under Canndlanjurlsdlctlon. Eventually, if flm vnltiritiinr ninvflinnnt. Rlirmlrl mil. that policy would bo tho natural ono for General Booth to pursue. Ills am bition Is to make tho army English.
