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
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
