South African Republics Will Be Subjugated Leaving Dutch Hostile British Imperialists Do Not Pos sess Capacity to Solve the Problems to Follow SMALL GROUP CAUSED CRIMINAL WAR Justin McCarthy M P the famous statesman historian and novelist has given to the World the following signed statement on Englands dilemma While attempting to review the nature of the task England has undertaken in South Africa I may say I shall do my best to regard the subject from the point of view ofan unprejudiced outsider I think the English Government made a profound mistake when it allowed itself to be drawn into such a war I feel con vinced that if the heart the conscience and the intelligence of the English peo ple in general could have been aroused in good time to the real character and policy of the small group of men who are pressing the war it would never have taken place About the ultimate success of the British arms in South Africa there can be no manner of doubt Nothing but a combination of the great powers against England could prevent her ultimate success Such a combination is not likely to take place How to get out of the difficulties certain to arise when the war is over is a problem which will test the greatest British statesmanship and which for myself I am convinced Brit ish statesmanship will not be able to accomplishThe has been from the first for complete sovereignty on the one side and independence on the other The Boers had been making preparations because they knew there were men in England whpwguld never be satisfied until Eng tau iobaiaeeilslsoluJet domintart over inspired by thereviving passioni for imperialism and by the almost mechani cal reaction against the noble peaceful conscientious policy of Gladstone some again were inspired by the more ignoble passion for the ownership of the gold fields The preparations of the Boers gave a plausible excuse for the policy of the war party in this country and thus the two parties to the quarrel day by day were stimulating each other The Eng lish Government would have done a wise and noble act if it had offered to refer the whole matter to arbitration and had tendered such an offer as the first fruits of the Peace Convention held at The Hague But that was not in the humor of the men who were pushing things for ward on this side and the result is a prospect of almost illimitable strife Of course I do not mean that the strife between England and the South African republics will be illimitable The Eng lish War Office will pull itself together somehow before very long and make an end of the resisteuce offered by the Transvaal republic and the Orange Free State but what comes then Whatever may be the formal conditions of peace we may take it for granted there will be an end of even nominal independence of the South African republics The Dutch are a majority of Cape Colony and it is not likely their allegiance to Englands sovereignty will be strengthened jy the subjugation of their kinsmen The man who believes the imperialist party in England be it Tory or Liberal will leave to these republics any substance of internal independence is too credulous a person for the atmosphere of modern politics Therefore this war will according to my codviction bequeath to England a new enemy in the Dutch descended population of South Africa What a population sprung from such an cestry may do history will tell to future generations Perhaps Motleys Rise of the Dutch Republic may give to anxious students of the present day some help to forecast the possibilities of the years to come CHRISTMAS TREE Mrs C E Key had quite an enjoyable time with the little ones in the West End at her home 1632 Twentythird street Wednesday There was a Christmas tree and after the distribution of

especially in campaign times about the dignity of labor They say The pearly beads of perspiration on the brow of toil are gems and jewels far more rich and rare than any that ever adorned a mon archs diademBut did you ever see any of those fellows tumbling over one another to invest in these jewels Hardly The poor have a monopoly on those com modities The poor are in sole control of the grim trust You have heard of the dignity of labor Is there such a thing Are you ambitious for your sop to become a coal miner or a factory hand or a laborer on the Great Northern railway II EUGENE V DEBS No of course you are not Do you want to know why the grime of labor does not secure you admission to the most exclu sive circles It is because wage selling is wage slavery and the marks of toll are the marks of degradation the badges of servitude I say this at the expense of my respectability but until right and re spectability are synonymous terms I would rather be right than to be re spectable CATHOLIC BOYS BRIGADE r a One of Dublin s Mos ffoot vet gena araDol i Permanent Good Among the really effective agencies for doing permanent good which exist in Dublin the Catholic Boys Brigade holds a foremost place At the annual meeting of friends and supporters of the Brigade which was held recently in the Church street Hall particulars were given of the progress of the Brigade which was strengthened by the addition of two hun dred members during the past year and of the good work which was accomplished Briefly what the Brigade does is to get hold of boys in humble circum tances at an age when from their sur roundings they would be liable to form evil habits that would last them a life time and while keeping them together by interesting them in various ways to inculcate principles of good living and habits of steadiness that they are not likely to cast aside when later on they are thrown utterly on their own re sources Those in charge of the work recognize quite clearly that improvement in the moral tone of the next generation can be secured only in one way and that is by raising the status of the children In the present generation As Father Mark put it in the course of a brief but telling speech Save the child and you save the manthe city the nation save the child and you have found a thorough solution to the difficult problem of social reform Realizing this we who guide the destinies of the Catholic Boys Brigade labor untiringly to educate the youth of Dublin up to that standard of moral and civic rectitude which forms the very germ of a healthy and prosper ous community The extension of the work of the Brigade has rendered the acquisition of new premises an absolute necessity To meet the expenditure thus incurred as vrtll M other expenses about 2000 is required and for this amount an appeal is now being made A remarkable testi mony to the value of the work done by the brigade comes from those who are interested in the Protestant Boys Brigade They recognize cheerfully the good that is being accomplished on lines similar to their own by their Catholic brethren and this point came out in more than one of the speeches delivered For Instance Sir Thomas Brady who proposed the adoption of the report earnestly appealed to those present to supply the 2000 now required by Father Mark As a Protestant he hoped his fellowProtestants would join him in trying to help every institution of that kind One hall was not sufficient for Dublin Prom selfish interests they should help to train up tht e boys well because in the end that would improve the tone of the community anti puts stop to vice and crime Surgeon Mc Ardle alo expceeeed his pleaur at the i harmOny that existed between the Protestant and Catholic Brigade add rejoiced at te fact that the

Sympathizing With the Boers and Ready to Aid Them ti Futile Attempts of Anglpman iacs to Belittle the Loyalty of Irishmen MANY FAKES GOING THE ROUNDS During the past week the daily papers have been giving place in their columns to dispatches from the larger cities rela tive to the attitude of the Irish in the United States toward the Government of Great Britain in its unjust war upon the South African republics the majority of which come from the fertile imagination- of some reporter whose knowledge of public affairs does not extend beyond the precinct or ward in which he resides and invariably impute that the American sympathizers with the Boers purpose the transgression of the laws of our country One dispatch from New York publishes an interview with an alleged prominent officer of the ClannaGael who is made to sayEngland can only be made to feel by physical force and we are now going to give her some Boer treatment We did intend going out and sinking that first expedition from Canada to South Africa but thought it better to wait a little We can mobolize our men without much difficulty for an attack on Canada and we are fairly well armed as well as the United States troops in the Spanish war We have lots of Springfield rifles and are handy with the bayonet No decision has been arrived at yet Everything will dependon the immediate future We have either regiments or companies all over the United States and they are fair ly well drilled and a great many of our men are in the militia The Ancient Order of Hibernians has really nothing to do with thlsIt numbec a nKnnf 261000 and a+ majority- officers n tjt = do and so of course it will act with us We have lots of men in the regular armycamps or clubs in every postand even if they were sent against us to stop us fln the border they would either march across with us or give us blank cartridges- No II name is given and Irishmen who know anything of the Ancient Order of Hibernians orClannaGael at once recog nize its ridiculousness and animus From Philadelphia Chicago Omaha St Louis Boston and Cincinnati the pro British have sent out like reports that from the first named saying an order had been issued for a special assessment on every Hibernian in the United States Such action can only be taken by the National Board of officers with the con sent of the membership and there has been no meeting of the board for some time past whose headquarters are in ChicagoWere there any such movement on k foot the fact would be well known here where men who have been prominent in all movements in Irelands behalf reside among them Pat Baunon James Hyland John Kelly Jeremiah Kavanaugh Barney Campbell James Rogers Mike Keaney and many others The Irishmen of this country are ready at any time to opposeii England for the benefit of Ireland or any country oppressed by that cruel Government but always within the law of their adopted land and little attention should be paid to the unauthentic tele grams reflecting upon their loyalty to the stars and stripes The foregoing is the consensus of opinion of a large number interviewed this wee- kINSTALLATION Mackin Council Will Entertain Its Friends Next

maybe with us till the next r centuryThis is the usual time for making goodresolutions and those that were made a year ago and broken are wiped off the slate and a new record commenced Do not think you can entirely revolutionize either the world or yourself in a few days so just start in gently and instead of the usual dozen 01 9 so good resolves select one or two and decide to live up to them One of the most important and which if lived up to would bring in its train many others is to be true to ourselves This is not so easy as may appear on the face To have the moral courage to always say

belligerents is subject to seizure and penalty as contraband of war outside the jurisdiction of the United States and upon proof establishing this character can not claim the protection of this Gov ernment This is sufficiently clear and iis the only proper position this Government can assume under the circumstances and all American citizens whatever their sympathies in the controversy and whatever their acts as individuals should for the honor of the Government avoid violating the law In no country is the individual allowed such lliberty of action and because of its consistent adherence to the spirit of international law and equity no other Government is so universally respected by the nations of the world The American peo ple are free to sell or give their goods and contribute their money as they prefer leave the jurisdic tion of the United States and enlist but not in this country and any attempt to do so will be sup pressed and punished The State Department has

courteous is none the less emphatic and will put a damper on the enthusiasm of those who assume to speak for Americans in express ing only their own opinionsand- means in plain terms that the American Government alone speaksi fonts people and controls its flag The thoughtless Americans who are shouting for the Boers and wishing their success have not the slightest comprehension of the fact that next to a defeat of the United States the greatest calamity to the United States would be the defeat of Great Britain by the Boers CourierJournalRight No thoughtless American has for over a hundred years had the slightest compre hension nor have the vast majority of the Americans become less thoughtless on that slight est comprehension than were the patriots of 76 who carried their thoughtlessness to the extent of lighting against and freeing them selves from such slightest compre bension It is true that then asI now there were thoSe who regret ted the course of the thoughtless Americans and they and their successors have never ceased to re gret it The Tory of 76 and the Anglomaniac of today are theme As the thoiightlcM Ameri cans of 76 disregarded the admo nitions of the

thinks so thoughtless as he may be and he is thoughtless enough to fight about it with anybody Our Anglomaniac editors seem to be adepts in British phraseology doubtless preparing themselves for the realization of their dream of AngloSaxon unity They refer to the American people as II American subjects The American people over a hundred years ago mos positively refused to be subjects claiming by inalienable right everyman was a sovereign They repu diated the government ideal of king and subjects but founded and have since maintained a govern ment of for and by the people all sovereigns In the war ofi8x2 John Bull was forced into abandoning his claim oflIonce a subject always a subject and recognize the inalien able right of his subjects to forswear their king and become citizens of the United States The relation of king and subject lord and vassal master and serf have no legal status under our government The term subject has no place in this country where by law everyman from its chief executive to the humblest is fully the equal of the other The English papers are recount ing the cruelties of the Boers to the blacks in Africa as justification for British supremacy and our Anglo traniacs copy and comment favor ably If Boers were cruel as charged it ill becomes Englishmen to condemn them for it British cruelty to humanity is not limited as to time country or race but has been universal and covers her entire his torythe whites in Ireland and Wales the Mongolians in China the Indians in America the blacks in Africa the Malays and savages in the Pacific islands

article on the enlistment of Irishmen in the British army is taken from the Dubliu Irish People We do not now discuss the question whether the granting of home rule in 8G or 05 would have rendered the bulk of the Irish people loyal in the sense in which loyalty is understood by the jin goes Home rule a thousand times over would not as Mr Davitt told the British to their teeth on the floor of their own Senate house in the heart of their em plre alter Irelands love for justice and hatred of odious wrong But the point we want to make is that the English Ini pcrialists who throw up their hands in horror and astonishment at Irelands sympathy with the Boers in this conflict and Irelands grief at the position of her sons who are fighting for England need go no further than their own deeds for an explanation apart from the wider consideration of the common history and justice of the case of the brave burghers After a struggle lasting centuries we were reduced to the position to which the British are now striving to drive the Boers Therefore it is not wonderful that we are against the English as a nation and that the deeds of Ireland battling in their service fill us not with pride but with sorrow and shame Throughout the whole of rural Ire land writes a correspondent lithe poor est and humblest laborer in his cottage deems it a disgrace of the direst character whenever any one belonging to him dons the red coat It is a fact with which I am perfectly familiar that a decent hardworking small farmer or cottier would prefer to tast the bitterness of death itself rather than know that the son or brother had joined the English army Often dud often I have heard a heartbroken mother wailOhl why didnt you come to tell me he was dead when some neighbor broke the terrible news

several sons of ala borer or small farmer who can scarcely make both ends meetcan save up the price of a steerage ticket to the States he never thinks of enlisting He shrinks from the contagion of English service whenever there is any alternative But the money for the passage ticket is despairingimpatience and regrets it all the days of his life 3 Worthlessness There are in every community some

his life while in the ranks must neces sarily be one of continual degradation we should have fewer Connaught Ran gers and Dublin Fusileers doing the work of murderers at the front while the weeny brats from Cockney slums take their ease in Dublin and Spike Island There is no doubt whatever that a very large proportion of Irish Recruits join the colors out of the militia regiments These regiments are not held in high esteem by the country folk either A militiaman is a very bitter term of reproach in rural Ireland Prom various motives or from waut of any motive youngmen drift into the militia The milItary life on th training grounds is very different from the reality as it is forced upon the con sciousness of the unhappy wights who take the plunge and enlist straight away The apparent freedom and jollity of soldiers career lured many The possession of arms and a smart uniform fasci nates others So the final step is taken too often and the foolish son of an Irish mother
