THE CROWN AND THE CHARTERED COMPANY. Papers relating to the government of Rhodesia have been issued, setting forth the actual status of the company in relation to the Crown, which can at any time inspect their papers, including minutes of evidence and telegrams, and suspend officials. There will be a High Court, with full jurisdiction over all the territory. The following wilt show the spirit of consideration in which native feeling is dealt with In civil cases between natives the High Court and the magistrates' courts shall be guided by native law so far as that law is not re- pugnant to natural justice or morality, or to any order made by her Majesty in Council, or to any proclamation or ordinance. In any such case the Court may obtain the assistance of one or two native assessors, to advise the Court upon native law and customs, but the decision'of the Court shall be given by the judge or magistrate alone. If in any civil case between natives a question arises as to the effect of a marriage contracted, according to native law or custom, by a native in the lifetime of one or more other wives married to him according to native law or custom, the Court may treat such marriage as valid for all civil purposes, in so far as polygamous marriages are recognised by the said native law or custom.
