MAJOR MACDONALDS REPORT. A Parliamentary Paper relating to recent events in the Uganda Protectorate, and dealing principally with the military operations following the mutiny of Major Macdonald's Soudanese troops was issued on Wednesday. It is a continuation of the paper Africa, No. 10, 189S," and covers the period from May 241. 1898, to November last.. Major Macdonald reports on the military operations in Uganda during 1897-98, and I I gives a list of officers and men whom he specially mentions for the favourable consideration of the Home authorities. Included in this list are some 13 loyal Wagancla chiefs and others. The steadfastness and determination of the Waganda, •ays Major Macdonald, under heavy losses and during a very prolonged campaign, has surprised even their warmest admirers, and he adds his per- sonal testimony as to their excellent work, which, he remarks, is deserving of substantial recognition and of medals. Major Macdonald also pays a tribute to the memory of Mr. G. Pilkington, the Church Missionary Society's missionary, who, while he was in charge of the Uganda working parties, was killed. His death, sltys Major Mac- donald, is a terrible loss to Uganda, where his many admirable qualities had given him all influence with the natives second to that, of no other missionary. According to a tabulated list of the losses sustained during the operations reported on by Major Macdonald. the casualties of the Government, forces amounted to 280 killed and 555 wounded, a total of 835. The enemy, on the other hand, lost 570 killed and 549 wounded, with 181 prisoners, a total of 1300. Of the enemy killed 230 were Soudanese mutineers, and 340 disloyal Waganda and other natives, while of the wounded 235 were Soudanese and 314 Waganda, &c.
