MR. CHAMBERLAIN, from the serene heights of popularity, has had a rather nasty fall. Elated by his recent success in dealing with the Jameson raid he sent a long epistle to President Kruger, suggesting an elaborate scheme of Home Rule for the Outlanders. Oom Paul, that exceedingly tough old man who rules the Transvaal with a strong hand, would not listen to Mr. Chamberlain's advice, and rejected it with a scorn he did not attempt to conceal. Unfortunately, before his reply came, the Home Rule scheme had been published in the press of this country. Mr. Chamberlain's position was, therefore, a somewhat ignominious one. He meant well, but he failed in diplomacy, and failure in diplomacy is peculiarly humilitating. Mr. Chamberlain threw the blame on the press. But he need not have giventhe epistle to the London editors, clamour they uever so loudly, until he had received Kruger's reply. Sweet are the uses of advertisement, it is true it is also true that the imprudent diplomatist has to pay the penalty. We do not rejoice in Mr. Cham- berlain's slip. That may be left to his very dear friends, the Tones. Ooni Paul has thus scored another triumph. The conqueror of Majuba Hill has baffled many able men. Jameson has been struck down, and Rhodes and Chamberlain, for the present at all events, have been brought to the dust. How long the sturdy Dutchman will hold out, time will show. It is remarkable there should be so much hubbub over questions affecting a population rather less than that of the parish of Merthyr Tydvil.
