Miscellaneous articles on same page:

Two thousand acres of land have lately been acquired by the Agricultural Department of the Orange River Colony, at Thaba ‘Nchu Neck, which are to be employed in the work of forestry. Forty thousand trees are now ready for planting, and it is expected that over 250,000, mostly pines, will be planted before the end of the year. Two acres of land have lately been sown with wattle seed, and a nursery of 12 acres is now being prepared. An ample supply of water is available, and the convicts from the convict station, which is situated near, and has lately been established, are engaged in the work. The 16,000 trees that were planted on November 9 last in commemoration of His Majesty King Edward’s birthday in the different Boer refugee camps in Orange River Colony are doing exceedingly well.

At a meeting of the Mechanical Engineers’ Association in Johannesburg in March, Mr. W. Epton, A.M.I.M.E., read an interesting paper on “The Raising of Water from Deep Level Mines,” in which he referred chiefly to the loss in getting the power from boilers on the surface to the pump underground. They had to raise a given weight to a certain height in a certain time, and to decide which was the most economical way of doing it. Whichever way they got the water out of the mine, very nearly half the cost was in getting the power down to the pump. He pointed out that power was lost by the use of electricity, compressed air, Cornish pumps, hydraulic pumps, but he thought that if they took the engine and boiler down the mine it would be one of the cheapest methods, though there were certain practical difficulties in the way. He referred to the test made at the Rose Deep, and the results then obtained with one of the most modern air compressors, and explained the arrangement of hydraulic pumps, extensively used in the Scottish mines, by which means an efficiency of 68 per cent was claimed. Dealing with the underground engine, he said that by placing the engine and boiler underground, providing that the pump plungers were coupled direct on to the engine, either on to the crank shaft, by means of connecting rods, or to an extended piston rod, the total loss in efficiency should not exceed 13 per cent, which gave the total of 228 I.H.P. in the cylinder of the engine. Thus, assuming a consumption of 13 lbs. of steam per I.H.P. per hour, they had 83,330,000 foot pounds per 112 lbs. of coal. With the Cornish pump they would not get duty for this depth of more than 50,000,000 with the same coil.

To the Editor of “South Africa”

Sir,--In the Review of Reviews Mr. Rhodes is reported as having thus stated his religious belief to Mr. Stead: “Of the future life, he said, Agnosen, I do not know anything; but if there be a God, of which there is an even chance, then, &c., &c.” Is it not rather curious that a man of such great ability, who had lived so long amongst savage races, should entertain any doubt as to the existence of “The Great Spirit”?

The well-known Matabele chief Secombi said, at Rhodes’s burial: “Now the body of our great Chief Umsilikitse and that of the Great White Chief both rest in the Matoppos, and their spirits will meet in a great indaba (council) hereafter.” Is not this assumption of the simple-minded savage a way no less easy than simple of cutting the Gordian knot? He says: “Of course there is a God; who made me, my people, the woods, and the hills amongst which we dwell. Surely the Great Spirit.” Truly the refinements of civilization do not seem to render our reasoning powers more acute, do they? The simple faith of the savages often puts to shame the more cultivated intellects of civilized countries.

Truly yours,
D. Z. Beaumont

Owing to rats being again discovered infected with plague bacilli in a store belonging to the Port Elizabeth Harbour Board, it has been decided to close the building.

The intimation that an outbreak of small-pox had occurred at Woodstock (Cape Colony) has caused a good deal of uneasiness in that neighbourhood, but it is satisfactory to learn that the local authorities are taking effective measures to prevent the spread of the scourge.

Mr. Linfield, a missionary in Tongaland, connected with the South African General Mission, has succumbed to injuries received from a crocodile. He was on his way to Durban to be married. He was crossing the St. Lucia Lake, when he was attacked by a crocodile, from which he just succeeded in freeing himself and reaching land. Both his hands were torn off, and he had a terrible wound in his left side, extending from the abdomen to the knee. In this condition he lay undiscovered until noon next day, and died before he could be moved.

Mr. George Wyndham, Chief Secretary for Ireland, speaking at Brighton recently, said they had in South Africa what they must still call a war, and he could only hope that they might be able to cease calling it a war at no distant date. The recent ceremony at St. Paul’s recalled to his mind a conversation he had with Mr. Rhodes on a certain October morning on the very granite crag which now held him dead. Mr. Rhodes had reclined, lost in thought, for some 30 or 40 minutes, when suddenly he saw a point of light flashing in the valley below. It was after he had made his peace with the Matabele. “They say I have not made peace,” Mr. Rhodes remarked, “but that point of light is caused by the Matabele hoeing his corn again.” Mr. Rhodes was transported with boyish delight that war was over.

A fatal accident has occurred on the railway line at Touws River, by which a man named Carl du Toit met with a fearful death. He was repairing a stop-block on the branch line, when some trucks were shunted, pinning him between the buffer of the truck and the stop-block. The impact was so great that the body was almost cut in two.

At a meeting of the male parishioners of St. George’s Cathedral, Cape Town, the Dean nominated as his churchwarden Mr. O. D. Douallier. Mr. E. K. Harcombe was elected people’s churchwarden. The congregation then elected ten sidesmen, viz: Messrs. I. Klerck, A. Traviss, H. Traviss, Attwell, Dr. St. Leger, Dr. Cox, E. von Witt, A. H. Kingsley, J. Curtiss, and J. Lindsay.

At the annual meeting of the South African Auxiliary of the British and Foreign Bible Society held in the hall of the Y.M.C.A., Cape Town, the Dean of Cape Town presiding, the report of the Rev. L. Nuttal, General Secretary, showed that good progress had been made. The report recorded the circulation of many thousands of copies of the Scriptures in Kafir, Sechuana, Sesuto and Zulu. During the war, despite immense difficulties, the circulation had greatly increased. The total distribution for 1901 amounted to 49,417 copies.

Arthur Theodore Pugsley, a trooper in the S.A.C., pleaded guilty at Durban to three charges of having obtained money and goods under false pretences. Accused represented to Harvey, Greenacre and Co. that he was Lieutenant Harris, and obtained goods valued at £3 11s. 9d. He also got £8 from a man named Dickson, and another sum of money from another man. Accused stated that he had not been well treated in the S.A.C., and deserted. Having no money, he committed the acts charged against him. An officer, who appeared on behalf of the Commandant, said it was the intention of the military authorities to proceed against the accused for desertion and for forging a permit. Sentence of six months was imposed by the Magistrate.

Graham: “I am directed by Mr. Secretary Chamberlain to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of May 12, and to state in reply that no scheme for providing assisted passages to South Africa for intending settlers has yet been decided upon, but that Mr. Chamberlain does not, in any case, anticipate that assistance will be rendered to persons who are not British subjects.

At the public Coronation celebration at Durban, the service prepared by the Archbishop of Cape Town will be conducted by the Mayor’s Chaplain, the Rev. George Weeks, and the Coronation anthem will be sung by a combined choir.


Writing from Rome on May 19 our correspondent stated that the Right Rev. Dr. Matthew Gaughren had been selected to succeed his brother as Roman Catholic Bishop of Kimberley. The reverend gentleman entered upon his probationary career at Inchicore in 1860. After a somewhat brief scholastic course in a French seminary he engaged in missionary work in Glasgow, subsequently serving in Liverpool and London. In 1876 he was appointed to the management of the Glencrie Reformatory School, but after two years work in this position he again plunged into missionary work taking America as his field of labour. In 1890 he became Provincial of the Oblates, and it was in this position that he, in 1894, visited Australia and established a house of the Order there. Five years ago he was placed at the head of the Oblates in Leith, and now relinquishes this position to take up the work in connection with the See to which he has been called.
