THE triumph of the British Troops in the Soudan hashada wonderful influence upon the traditional prestige of the British Army. The genius and the skill with which the whole campaign has been carried out, and the individual bravery of the men, show that British pluck and daring have not been exhausted. The victory has come at a most opportune time since there was f growing conviction on the continep that we had seen our best days wl,-n in battle array. The Khalifa's fight and the enormous less of Dervish lives tell of utter demoralisation Æ the barbarous reign of rude unciviization in the remote districts of our Egyptian Protectorate. Every British triumph in such an area is an acquistion to the trade development of tlis country. Though it is a rough and rude arbitra- ment, still its success is a supercession of civilization over barbarity. The reception of the Sirdar in Omdurman after the great night indicates that those people are wishful to be relieved of the chance and way- wardness of a regime of the barbaric kind. From all parts in the upper reaches of the Nile we hear of rejoic- ings, because it is the harbinger of a period of peace and industrial quietude. The political aspect has also undergone a complete transformation, and even our continental rival—France—appears to settle down to the inevitable con- clusion that our sway in those regions must be left undisturbed. And the Kaiser seems to be lavishly gushing in his admiration of the British Military Aill. The reconquest of the Soudan will end the indecision which has long prevailed in respect to the ultimate British connection with it. The dec- laration of a Protectorate will be anticipated, and the only area of likely opposition is France. Hut the French -as a great colonial power are fast proving a failure.
